From our spiritual advisor Sunday, Mar 17 2013 

cropped-pope_francis_bow2.jpgGood Morning

This has certainly been an interesting week. The highlight, the election of our new Pope, From the America’s. I am grateful for the wonderful coverage on a lot of the media, so much, so good and positive (mostly) He seems to be a gentle, compassionate man.

I am suggesting that each council or several councils together offer a Mass of Thanksgiving. Resources are available in the Roman Missal. Also, I suggest, if posible, to use the readings for the Mass for St. Francis of Asissi. It would be a nice gesture to make some sort of offering to the poor at that Mass; food, clothing for various shelters, cash donations…

Prayer cards have been made for the new Pope. I don’t know any details on how to order them. I imagine they will be on the CCCB website.

Have a blessed Holy Week and Easter season.

Fr. John
