Here is Bulletin_2016-01-03
Still within the Octave of Christmas, today we celebrate the Feast of the Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God.
My wife and I are taking this time to regroup, to reflect, and to pray. On the 27th of December, we enjoyed the great gift of seeing our 11th grandchild (granddaughter number five) receive the Holy Sacrament of Baptism. The Baptism immediately followed Mass in the Extraordinary form with our two eldest grandsons serving. The Baptism rite was also conducted in the Extraordinary Form, primarily in Latin. Our eldest grandson was the Godfather and our second eldest grandson served the priest. My wife, a convert, was amazed by the richness of the old rite with its symbolism and instruction on the great importance of this Holy Sacrament.
In the Bulletin you will find A Letter from His excellency Most Reverend Paul S. Loverde On the Occasion of the World Day of Peace January 1, 2016. Also of interest for Catholics throughout the world is the Pope’s message Overcome Indifference and Win Peace.
As I said earlier, we are taking this time to regroup, to reflect, and to pray. Next week we will be back with analysis and commentary on items in the bulletin and other happenings related to the St. Peter’s.
