    A Few Words from Fr. Dariusz..

 

2ND SUNDAY OF LENT

This week we learned that 500,000 of our brothers and sisters have died in our country since the beginning of the Pandemic.  I would like to pray for those who have died and for those who deal with the loss of their loved ones.

In the First Reading, God tested Abraham's living faith.  God wanted to see just how faithful Abraham would be in obedience and servitude.

In this particular Reading that speaks of Abraham and Isaac as father and son, we can see a lot of images of God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.  When God called upon Abraham, he answered, "Here I am."  The two words, "I am," echo the identity of both, God the Father and Jesus Christ.  These two Words, prophetic in nature, implied the arrival of Jesus in the world as the promised Messiah.

After calling Abraham, God the Father commanded him to take his son Isaac whom he loved and to go to the land of Moriah to offer him there as a burnt offering on a mountain that will be shown to him.  Abraham obeyed God.  When Abraham came to the place that God had shown him, he built an altar there and laid the wood in order.  He bound his son Isaac, and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.

The action of Abraham echoes perfect obedience to God.  It echoes that living faith without actions (works) is dead.

Just when Abraham was about to sacrifice his son, the angel of the Lord called him from heaven and told him not to lay his hand on the boy or do anything to him.  The faith of Abraham had been tested and God knew by his actions that he had a sincere heart.  Abraham obeyed God to the end.

In the Second Reading to the Romans, St. Paul tells us that perseverance moves alongside living faith.  In the early days of the Church, there was much persecution and many of the converts feared losing their lives.  St. Paul told them, "If God is for us, who is against us? [It is clear that God is on the side of the Christians.  As such, there is nothing to fear.]

In the Gospel, Mark gives us a glimpse at what awaits those who persevere in their living faith.  When Jesus took Peter, James and John up a high mountain, they witnessed the Transfiguration of Jesus.  His clothes became dazzling white such as no one on earth could bleach them.  White clothing is an image of glory.

The presence of Elijah and Moses on the mountain is symbolic of the fulfillment of the prophets (through Elijah) and the Law (through Moses) that is found in the Old Testament.  Their living presence is proof that God's children of the Old Testament who persevered in their living faith have inherited the Kingdom of God.  As they came down the mountain, Jesus ordered them to tell no one about what they had seen until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead.  Coming down the mountain echoes a new Covenant.  When Moses received the Covenant of the Law, he also descended the mountain while carrying the two tablets of the Covenant.  Now the new and everlasting Covenant of Grace was about to begin.

This week, let us ask the Lord Jesus to strengthen and preserve our living faith through His Sacrament.  This is especially important to us during the Lenten Season when we are reflecting upon our Christian lives in preparation for the Resurrection of Jesus Christ that will be celebrated on Easter Sunday.

 God bless you all, 

Fr. Dariusz

New Guidelines

 For people attending Mass and other services at Our Lady of the Angels Parish

~ REVISED ~

If you are 65 y/o or older you are not required to be in church. You can watch Mass on television or on the Internet (if we find a volunteer to do that for us, we will post Masses on the Internet).

 
IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS SIMILAR TO FLU OR YOU DO NOT FEEL GOOD,

DO NOT COME TO CHURCH.


You MUST wear a mask at all time in order to enter the buildings. 


You MUST practice social distancing. 


If you come to Church with your family members, you MUST practice social distancing while taking a seat in Church, unless otherwise stated. 

If it is possible bring your own hand sanitizer with you.  (You can also bring your own wet wipes and gloves if you need them).

Avoid touching unnecessary things in Church.

Since it takes a lot of time to clean the whole Church, the Sunday Mass schedule will be changed.

Weekend Masses will be celebrated on Saturday at 4 pm, Sunday at 11:30 am.

Daily Masses will be celebrated on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings at 8:45 am. If there is a funeral, the morning Mass will be canceled.

If you bring gloves, wet wipes etc, do not leave them in the pews. Take them home with you or dispose them on the way out. DO NOT LEAVE THEM IN YOUR PEWS!

Regarding communion
At this time only a priest will be distributing communion. Before you receive communion, you bow 6 feet away from the priest, say amen, remove your mask and the priest places the Eucharist in your hand (YOU CANNOT WEAR GLOVES WHEN RECEIVNG COMMUNION!)

There are marks on the floor to help you with social distancing while receiving Communion.

I highly discourage anyone from receiving Communion on a tongue. I will need to wash my hand every time I give Communion on a tongue.

Regarding votive candles. 
You can now light candles in the Church.  You MUST sanitize your hands before and after lighting any candles.

Regarding donations:
There is one box in Church and one in the Parish Office for Sunday offertory.  When you come to Church or the Parish Office, please drop your donation off in the box.

Confessions
Confessions are by Appointment Only.  You will need to stay in your car with your mask on to confess your sins.  Face to face option only.  Please call the office to schedule an appointment.

When you get home please wash your hands.

In the end, I hope this can help us to stay safe. There might be other changes taking place regarding our safety. I will try to adjust when I see where such changes are needed.  Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding during this time.

God’s blessing to all of you.
Fr. Dariusz
