                       A FEW WORDS FROM FR. DARIUSZ   

April 3


When we enter into this Holy Week I would like to reassure you about my prayers. I know this time of staying home and staying safe is getting to us but it is necessary to stay away from others and protect ourselves and our loved ones.  Please pray for those who have died and those who could not be with their loved ones during this time of departure. I feel sorry for those who were not able to provide proper burials for the loved ones. It is heart breaking, just imagine what those mourners are going through. I keep them all in my prayers especially at my private Masses.   Please, keep in your prayers our government, doctors, nurses, first responders, and those who work hard and dedicate themselves to make this terrible time easier for us.
This Holy Week which we begin this Palm Sunday is the most important time in our religion. It is the time when Jesus was betrayed, unjustly condemned to death, crucified, died, and finally on Sunday Morning was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit. 
Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week. Holy Week recounts a complex and meaningful series of religious and spiritual events which lead to the Resurrection on Easter Day. Palm Sunday represents a preparation, a setting up, for the Resurrection to occur.  Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil are very close to our faith and understanding who as Christians we are. I always find Holy Week very uplifting in  my spiritual life. It helps me to relive the sacrifices the Lord made for me. I hope this time will be a time of prayer for all of us.
We would begin this Sunday with palms in our hands. We would want to welcome Jesus to Jerusalem not as a famous warrior, but as a gentle, humble bearer of Good News. 
In the First Reading, the prophet suffers in carrying out his mission, but is sustained by the firm belief that God will not abandon him.
The Second Reading tells us that, since Jesus took on him our human condition, and accepted death on a cross, the Father has raised him up and made him Lord of heaven and earth.
In the Gospel, St. Matthew shows the passion as fulfilling the prophecies of Scripture, and portrays Jesus, because of his foreknowledge and free decision, as being in complete control of the situation.
God bless you all,
Fr. D

As we limit social interaction amid the COVID-19 CRISIS , along with the temporary suspension of public Masses across many dioceses, there are several online resources available for the faithful.

One is to join Sacred Heart Major Seminary for an online Lenten retreat experience! The course is done at your own pace and taught by six dynamic professors. They will guide participants to encounter CHRIST more fully in the sacraments, prayer, and Scripture.

Faithful can begin the course at anytime by visiting shms.edu/encounter.

In addition to this Lenten course, previous courses are also available at equip.shms.edu
