We have a high priest, Jesus Christ,
who has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne
of the Majesty in heaven, a minister of the sanctuary
and of the true tabernacle that the Lord, not man, set up.
“Yours, Lord Jesus, is princely power in the day of your birth, in holy splendor;
before the daystar, like the dew, I, your heavenly Father, have begotten you.”
The Father has sworn, and he will not repent:
“You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.”
May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ
enlighten the eyes of our hearts,
that we may know what is the hope
that belongs to our call.
See Ephesians 1
Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered;
and when he was made perfect,
he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him.
Take heed of the uncertainties and warnings concerning travel this Sunday morning. Predictions are that driving will be hazardous or impossible due to ice and snow. We will observe our regular Sunday morning Mass schedule 7:30a, 9:30a, 11:30a but we realize some will not be able to attend. So use caution and common sense. There will be Masses in church. Those however who cannot attend will be considered present in spirit along with the saints and angels. To help you join us in spirit please consult the scripture passages for the day given below.
Sunday morning religion classes have been CANCELED.
“Everyone serves good wine first,
and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one;
but you have kept the good wine until now.”
The headwaiter’s comment at the wedding in Cana of Galilee. John 2
Christ is the better wine of the new covenant.
Since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens,
Jesus, the Son of God,
let us confidently approach the throne of grace
to receive mercy and to find grace for timely help.
Masses on the Lord’s Day: 5:00p (Sat), 7:30a, 9:30a, 11:30a
That you may know
that the Son of Man has authority to forgive sins on earth”
–he said to the paralytic,
“I say to you, rise, pick up your mat, and go home.”
He rose, picked up his mat at once,
and went away in the sight of everyone.
Come, let us bow down in worship;
let us kneel before the LORD who made us.
For he is our God,
and we are the people he shepherds, the flock he guides.
Because Jesus himself was tested through what he suffered,
he is able to help those who are being tested.
What is man that you are mindful of him,
or the son of man that you care for him?
You made him for a little while lower than the angels;
you crowned him with glory and honor,
subjecting all things under his feet.
