Message April 26, 2020

Dear Parishioners and Friends

Unfortunately, due to the recommendations of many in the scientific community and the subsequent orders of our elected officials, we are still prohibited from gathering to celebrate the Eucharist. However, I want you to know that I continue to celebrate a private Mass throughout this time and include the Mass intentions listed in the parish bulletin at these Masses. There are Mass intentions available in our parish calendar, beginning in May. Please email the Parish Office to confirm a Mass intention for a family member or loved one of your own. The church will remain closed, but I encourage everyone to participate in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and view other good quality spiritual programming on Catholic TV, found on your local cable Channel 268, or on EWTN, Channel 56. You can also view daily Mass on- line at http://www.catholictv.org/masses/catholictv-mass

 

I pray you and your loved ones are all holding up well during these extraordinary and difficult days. I know that in addition to health concerns, many among us are experiencing financial concerns, as well. I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all of you who have mailed in donations since public Masses have been suspended. In response to many requests, we have set up an on-line giving feature you may wish to consider using. Gabriel Software, LLC is utilized by several parishes here on Cape Cod and throughout the Fall River Diocese. It is free, simple and secure. Please note the bulletin announcement explaining how to access this service via our parish website.

 

Your contribution to the weekly parish collection enables us to meet the immediate expenses of St. Joan of Arc Parish. These immediate expenses include the payroll of our beloved parish employees & staff and the operational expenses of the parish facilities and grounds. With your support during these difficult days, the good work of our parish organizations and ministries will continue long after this coronavirus crisis is behind us.

 

Throughout these 50 days of the Easter Season, may we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus who is the resurrection and the light of the world. May we all carry His light and His love into our homes, our families and wherever our personal path may lead us. May we remember one another in prayer especially those most in need of our prayers at this time.

 

Yours in Christ, Fr. Bill Rodrigues

 

 

Divine Mercy Sunday
(Second Sunday of Easter)


Dear Parishioners and Friends,

I regret that we are unable to gather as a parish family to celebrate the Eucharist. However, I want you to know that I continue to celebrate a private Mass throughout this time and include the Mass intentions listed in the parish bulletin at these Masses. The church will remain closed, but I encourage everyone to participate in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and view other good quality spiritual programming on Catholic TV, found on your local cable Channel 268, or on EWTN, Channel 56. You can also view daily Mass on-line at http:// www.catholictv.org/masses/catholictv-mass.

This Sunday is the Feast of Divine Mercy or better known as “Divine Mercy Sunday” which was instituted by Pope Saint John Paul II on April 30, 2000. The origin of this day, however, began in 1931, when a young Polish nun, Saint Faustina, saw a vision of Jesus with Rays of Mercy streaming from His heart. Christ told her to have an image painted to represent this vision and to sign it, “Jesus, I trust in You.” In a subsequent series of revelations, Christ taught her that His mercy is unlimited and available to even the greatest sinners. At her convent in Krakow, He revealed to Saint Faustina special ways for people to respond to His mercy. The words of Our Lord to Saint Faustina are recorded in the Diary of Saint Faustina Kowalska, Divine Mercy in My Soul.

In this Sunday’s Gospel Jesus appears to his apostles after the Resurrection and says to them, “Peace be with you.” We hear, as well, in the Gospel Our Lord say, “Do not be afraid.” One reason we may be afraid and not be at peace in our own times is because we find it difficult to trust Him. So, some questions for us to prayerfully consider today might be: Do we really understand Christ's mercy? What does it really mean to say, “Jesus, I trust in You?” Could it be that we don't want to let Him get too close because we know that it will probably do something to us; something that will require a change in our lives? Are we sometimes afraid to be vulnerable with God? Listening to Our Lord's words in scripture, He tells us in no uncertain terms: Do Not be Afraid, Be at Peace.

This feast of Divine Mercy reminds us of many parables taught by Jesus emphasizing God’s mercy. We remember the three beautiful parables of Luke’ s Gospel Chapter 15. God is like a shepherd who leaves 99 sheep to go in search of the one lost one. God is like a woman who searches the entire house to find the coin she lost. God is like a father who comes out of the house to welcome back his prodigal son and who comes out of the house a second time to entice the elder son to come in and join in the celebration.

In the image of Divine Mercy, Jesus comes to us pointing to his heart. The message of Divine Mercy is that the mercy of God is greater than anything we can do and He wants more than anything, to forgive our sins. We are shown in the Gospel how the Holy Spirit breathes upon the disciples and how they are given the authority to forgive sins. When in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, we hear those beautiful words of absolution, we should leave with the unshakable knowledge, that our sins have been removed from our soul. Jesus said that it was because of His love and mercy for us that he gave us the Sacrament of Confession and Saint Faustina records Jesus saying: “Daughter, when you go to confession, to this fountain of my mercy, the blood and water which came forth from My heart always flows down upon your soul and ennobles it. For every time you go to confession, immerse yourself entirely in my mercy, with great trust, so that I may pour out the bounty of my grace upon your soul. When you approach the confessional, know this, that I myself am waiting for you there. I am only hidden by the priest, but I myself act in your soul. Here the misery of the soul meets God solely with the vessel of trust. If their trust is great, there is no limit to my generosity.”

Although it is not possible this year to receive the sacraments at this time, because of the coronavirus, we remember that we can obtain the graces available on this day by receiving Jesus in our hearts with great longing and love in an Act of Spiritual Communion. God will give us all the graces we need because of our great trust in Him. God does not abandon anyone. He is especially close to the broken-hearted and those bound by disease, sin, despair, loneliness or disability.

Going to the Sacrament of Reconciliation is not the only way to prepare ourselves for this feast. We are also to be merciful, to perform acts of mercy. Jesus said to Saint Faustina, “My daughter, if I demand through you that people revere My mercy, you should be the first to distinguish yourself by this confidence in My mercy. I demand from you deeds of mercy, which are to arise out of love for Me. You are to show mercy to your neighbors always and everywhere. You must not shrink from this or try to excuse or absolve yourself from it. I am giving you three ways of exercising mercy toward your neighbor: the first – by deed, the second – by word, the third – by prayer. In these three degrees is contained the fullness of mercy and it is an unquestionable proof of love for Me. Yes the first Sunday after Easter is the Feast of Mercy, but there must also be acts of mercy, and I demand the worship of My mercy through the solemn celebration of the Feast and through the veneration of the image which is painted. By means of this image I shall grant great graces to souls. It is to be a reminder of the demands of my mercy because even the strongest faith is of no avail without works.”

Let us remember on this Divine Mercy Sunday that Jesus is reaching out to each one of us. The question for us to ask ourselves is: Will we draw near or will we back away remaining at arm’s length? May we all choose to accept Christ's mercy. May we all more and more show that mercy to others. May we believe deep in our hearts and souls that God loves us, that He truly loves us… so very much! May we say with confidence, “Jesus, I trust in You!”

Sincerely yours in Christ, Fr. Bill Rodrigues

 

AN EASTER MESSAGE FROM FATHER BILL

 

CHRIST IS RISEN! Our Lenten pilgrimage has reached its destination. From year to year the observances and disciplines of Lent help us to renew our relationship with the Lord and overcome our sin and self-centered ways. Now we enter in to the 50 days of the Easter Season, culminating with the celebration of the Ascension of the Lord and the Descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

 

Each year, the Saturday evening Easter Vigil Mass takes place after sunset. Our church lies in darkness and expectation. Then a match is struck in the darkness and the Easter fire is lit, representing Christ’s return from the darkness of the tomb. We remember and we celebrate, as the deacon elevates the Easter Candle, that Jesus Christ is the light that dispels the darkness of our world.

 

One person alone in a crowd can appear to be of little significance. One candle by itself can appear to be a small thing. But one candle can easily give light to another and then we see how its own light increases as it gives its flame to another. So it is at the Easter Vigil Mass. The light of Christ is passed one person to another and slowly but surely, the church is illuminated by that light. When we unite ourselves with the Risen Christ, we can become such a light not just in ritual but in our daily life. With God’s grace we have the power to move back the darkness inside ourselves and all around us. Whenever one heart kindles another, Christ is rising again. Whenever one person forgives another, Christ is rising again. Whenever one hand feeds or helps another, Christ is rising again and the light of faith, hope and love is passed on once more

 

Easter tells us that the light endures. It shines on in the darkness and the darkness will never overcome it because that light began when God Himself said: “Let there be light!” And it was wonderfully re-created when God, in effect, raised Christ by the hand that very first Easter. By His glorious resurrection, Jesus forever triumphed over death and darkness. He forever revealed God's light and God’s love for all people, places and times.

 

This year the experience of Lent, Holy Week and Easter is certainly very different from anything we have experienced before. In a society which often gives disproportionate praise and honor to Hollywood celebrities and professional sports stars, this year we recognize and honor the unsung heroes in our midst today. We think of the first responders, hospital staff, janitors and cleaning services, bus drivers, truck drivers, delivery persons, trash collectors and many others. They are living examples of light in the darkness.

 

There is an old saying that goes something like this: If you don’t know where you are going in life, then almost any road will get you there. This Easter, despite the coronavirus crisis all around us, as believers we do know where we are going and the road we are invited to take to get us there. The annual Lenten pilgrimage to Holy Week is the spiritual path we walk to remain mindful of the perpetual promise of new life & Easter resurrection. Holy Week reminds us that sometimes in the span of a single day any of us can experience both joy and sadness. We can learn that a child has been born and that a loved one has suddenly died. We can experience help from a total stranger and then fail to show kindness to a loved one or family member. Our hopes and tears, our questions and pains can be sudden and often surprising. The Good Friday cross of Christ is a reminder that Jesus also has endured all these things with us and for us. He came to embrace the messiness of our human condition and to sanctify it by his unfailing grace. In Christ, God will always meet us and sustain us in our crosses and point us to the victory of an Easter Sunday resurrection.

 

May we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus who is the resurrection and the light of the world. May we all carry His light and His love into our homes, our families and wherever our personal path may lead us. May we remember one another in prayer especially those most in need of our prayers at this time.

 

Christ is risen, alleluia! His is the light that can never be extinguished, alleluia

Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion

 

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

 

I regret that we are unable to gather as a parish family to celebrate the Eucharist. However, I want you to know that I am celebrating a private Mass throughout this time and including the Mass intentions listed in the parish bulletin at these Masses. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have sent your weekly offering to us during this period in which public Masses have been suspended. Your support helps us to continue to advance the mission of St. Joan of Arc Parish. May the Lord reward your generosity and kindness. Although the church remains closed at this time, you can participate in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and view other very good quality spiritual programming on Catholic TV, found on your local cable Channel 268, or on EWTN, Channel 56. You can also view daily Mass on-line at: http:// www.catholictv.org/masses/catholictv-mass

 

Recently, it was decided by the Bishops of our region that out of a concern for the health of our community, no public Masses or Liturgies will be celebrated this Holy Week and Easter Sunday. However, on Palm Sunday weekend, blessed palms will be made available at the main entrance of our church during the regularly scheduled Mass times: Saturday, April 4 from 5pm to 6pm and Sunday, April 5 from 8am to 11am. It is important to not use this as an opportunity to socialize with friends we may see during those hours. Please maintain the social distancing prescribed by the Commonwealth and safely return to the sanctuary of your homes.

This will be a very different experience of Holy Week for us. I do encourage you to take advantage of the television and internet opportunities to participate in the religious services led by the Holy Father in Rome. Let us remember this year that in this time of worldwide pandemic, we are members of a worldwide Church shepherded by the Bishop of Rome, the successor of St. Peter, Pope Francis. May this be a source of spiritual strength, consolation and hope.

A number of people have spoken with me recently about how they truly miss receiving Holy Communion. For many of us it has always been a part of the rhythm of our lives which we may easily have taken for granted would always be available to us. These conversations have reminded me of what the Church has referred to over the centuries as an Act of Spiritual Communion. I would like to say a few words about this here.

No matter what our day is like, Jesus can help make it better, or at least more bearable, if we ask Him for His help and guidance in prayers such as this one, composed by St. Alphonsus Liguori in the 18th century:

 

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

 

The best way to receive Christ in Holy Communion is at Mass. Yet for those times when we can’t make Mass, we can still reach out to Him by making a Spiritual Communion in prayer. St. Thomas Aquinas once defined a Spiritual Communion as, “an ardent desire to receive Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament and in lovingly embracing Him as if we had actually received Him.” We can make a Spiritual Communion whenever and wherever we'd like, using this prayer or our own heartfelt thoughts. Christ might not answer us quite so instantaneously, but we can rest assured, He can and will respond to anyone who comes to Him in love and humility for His Divine assistance. After all, didn’t He say in the Sermon on the Mount, concerning the power of prayer, “Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find” (Matt 7:7)? We just need to approach Him with sincerity, humility and a desire to follow in His footsteps in acts of faith and charity. And He’s delighted when we do so!

 

St. Jean-Marie Vianney, a French clergyman and Patron Saint of Parish Priests, who as an instrument of God’s grace, converted countless souls to Christ in his parish at Ars in the 19th century, once said, “when we feel the love of God growing cold, let us instantly make a Spiritual Communion. When we cannot go to the church, let us turn our thoughts to- wards the tabernacle; no wall can shut us out from the good God.” We can all indeed be grateful for that!

Although we are disappointed that we are not able to participate in the community and parish events that we had looked forward to, our journey to and through Holy Week continues. Perhaps it has be- come more of a monastic Lent in the isolation of self-quarantine. However, when we look to the lives of the saints, we often see that at the times when they were “stopped in their tracks” and redirected away from their regular routine, it was then that they heard the voice of God in their hearts in a new and fresh way. We think of St. Ignatius of Loyola who while convalescing from a battle wound, felt the presence of God for the first time and it changed the course of the rest of his life. From there he went on to found the Society of Jesus, the Jesuits, who proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus Christ and taught the Catholic Faith throughout the world.

 

Let us remember one another in prayer, especially those most in need of our prayers during these extraordinary days. May we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus who is with us in all seasons and circum- stances of our lives. St. Joan of Arc, pray for us. Our Lady of Fall River, pray for us.

 

Sincerely yours in Christ, Fr. Bill Rodrigues
