Gospel: Mark 1:29-39
Jesus cured Simon and Andrew’s mother of a fever, then others with illnesses or demons came to see Him. He cured those who were ill, and cast out the demons of the others. Then He went off and prayed alone until his followers sought Him out. Jesus and his disciples then moved on to other villages to proclaim the good news.
2021 YEAR OF ST. JOSEPH
Pope Francis has designated 2021 “The Year of St. Joseph.”
Past years have included, The Year of Faith and The Year of the Eucharist
and The Year of Mercy.
* 2021 is the 150
Anniversary of St. Joseph’s Proclamation as Patron of the
* Pope Francis said the coronavirus pandemic has heightened his
desire to reflect on St. Joseph because so many people have made sacrifices
to protect others just as St. Joseph quietly cared for Mary and Jesus.
* “Each of us can discover St Joseph – the man who goes unnoticed, a daily, discreet and hidden presence – an intercessor, a support and a guide in times of trouble. … our world needs fathers like St. Joseph." Pope Francis wrote.
* In honor of “2021 Year of St. Joseph” our parish has purchased a statue of St. Joseph that will be placed on the St. Joseph Altar (front right) and dedicated on March 19, 2021, his feast day.
* The wooden hand-made statue was made in Ortisei, Italy last year.
See the actual picture above.
* The full cost of the 66-inch statue is $12,000 including shipping.
We are soliciting one donor for $12,000 or 4 separate donors for $3,000.
A plaque will be affixed to the base of the statue.
* Call the Rectory on Monday if interested.
A PHOTO THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD
Some people remarked about Monsignor Dwyer’s homily last week when he mentioned a photo of the plight of starving children in Sudan, Africa.
The photographer, Kevin Carter, received a Pulitzer Prize for this iconic photo.
It brought worldwide attention to the despair in Africa. Please notice the vulture in the background waiting for the child to die. The child survived this experience but died 14 years later of malaria.
Like Jesus, who cured the delusional man of his mental illness in last week's gospel, we are called to care and get involved
with worldwide starvation and suffering.
Let us never be guilty of “Compassion Fatigue.” There is not “Their” and “My” Suffering - There is only “Our” Suffering.
