Monday greetings to all.
Last night I began presenting a three-evening mission at Saint Andrew Parish here in Chicago, pictured here:
Last night's focus was on the sacrament of Baptism and its meaning in our lives. Tonight we will focus on a few dimensions of the Eucharist, as the table of sacrifice and the table of nourishment.
Tomorrow morning the pastoral staff from my parish, Saint James, and a few other visitors, will be spending time here at our offices discussing our parish's approach to the implementation of the new translation of The Roman Missal.
I will keep you updated as this process progresses. I hope your first full week of Lent is a good one. Let us all keep in our prayers those who have died, their surviving loved ones and all who are suffering because of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
