Chapter & Verse
The Egyptians followed in pursuit; all Pharaoh’s horse and chariots and charioteers went after them right into the midst of the sea. Then the Lord told Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea, that the water may flow back upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots and charioteers.” As the water flowed back, it covered the chariots and charioteers of Pharaoh’s whole army which had followed the Israelites into the sea. Not a single one of them escaped.
Exodus 14:23 & 26-28
The Lord is at your right hand; he will crush kings on the day of his wrath.
BISHOP-ELECT MCGOVERN TO BE ORDAINED
July 22 at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Belleville at 2:00 p.m.
Due to concern for the health and safety of the public in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, attendance at the ordination liturgy will be limited and social distancing protocols will be in place. The Diocese of Belleville is exploring options for broadcasting the liturgy. This will allow the faithful to prayerfully participate in the ordination in their homes.
Everyone is invited to view the Mass which will be televised live on EWTN. The Mass will also be available on the EWTN website at: https://www.ewtn.com/
Let us to pray for our Bishop-Elect Rev. Michael McGovern in this time leading up to his ordination as our new Bishop.
O God, shepherd and ruler of all the faithful, look favorably on your servant, whom you have set at the head of your Church of Belleville as her shepherd; grant, we pray, that by word and example he may be of service to those over whom he presides, so that, together with the flock entrusted to his care, he may come to everlasting life. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
There will be printed bulletin in plastic tote by office door for those who would like receive paper copy.
Today's Gospel sums it up for our Faith. "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His Blood, you have no life in you, he who eats My flesh and drinks My Blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For My Flesh is food indeed, and My Blood is drink indeed. He who eats My flesh and drinks My Blood abides in Me, and I in him. We as Catholics gets the only living Sacrament of Christ. No other religion offers this!!! This is the Words of Eternal Life. With being away from Mass, for the last several months, let's not take Holy Communion for granted. Thanks, to Jesus Christ, we can live forever. Amen. This expression only appears rarely in the Bible, in John's Gospel and Gen. 3:22. The Bread of Life, which tradition calls the "medicine of Immortality". (CCC1331)
Good day and God Bless, Deacon Arch
