From Father Duy:
In the past few months, living out the faith has been difficult and challenging. Personally, I felt drained, unmotivated, and disappointed with everything that was reported by the media about the Church.
As painful as we are feeling right now, this, I think, is the time we should all stand in unity and pray for sanctity and for healing within the Church. Of course, pursuing holiness is not the task of one individual but of every member within the Church. On the Diocesan level, everyone is encouraged to pray for the greater respect of human life by participating in the 40 Hours of Grace.
Sharing in that spiritual nourishment, the Church of Saint Mary is doing the 40 Hours of Grace beginning at 4:00 PM on Nov 1st and ending at 8:00 AM on Nov 3rd, 2018 with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
In particular, in this 40 hours of Eucharistic Adoration, we will pray for specific issues related to protecting the dignity of the human person, especially for the grace of healing for all the victims of abuse and for any vulnerable individuals.
We sincerely invite you and the members in your ministry to commit to one hour in the 40 Hours of Grace. Or if you are willing to commit more than one hour, please don’t hesitate to sign up for more. The only thing we would ask is that there should be at least two people at the hour(s) for which you signed up. Please pick out an hour or two for your ministry and ask the members to be present and to participate in that hour(s) of adoration.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let me know! Thank you so much for the help!
