Here is Bulletin_2017-03-19

Here is a excerpt from a ZENIT translation of the address Pope Francis gave when he received in audience participants in the 28th annual course on the “Internal Forum,” organized by the Apostolic Penitentiary (Rome, Chancellery Palace, March 14-17, 2017):

In fact, the confessor is called daily to go to the “peripheries of evil and of sin” – this is an awful periphery! And his work represents a genuine pastoral priority. To hear confessions is a pastoral priority. Please, let there not be those notices: “Confessions are heard only on Mondays and Wednesdays from this hour to that hour.” You hear confessions every time they are requested. And if you are there [in the Confessional] praying, keep the Confessional open, which is God’s open heart.

Because the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary falls on a Sunday this year it will be celebrated on March 20th. St. Joseph is also known as the Protector of the Church.

In these days of uncertainty and disquiet within the Church, it is good to pray to St. Joseph for his intercession.

St. Joseph Protector of the Church, pray for us!
