Dear Parishioners,

In order to assist you in your First Friday/Saturday devotions, I have developed the following plan. This coming (First) Friday and Saturday I will be available in the confessional at 8:00 a.m. Only one person at a time will be allowed in the church. My assistant will monitor those going to the confessional. At 9:00 a.m. the church will be opened for a brief Communion service. People should leave within 10 minutes of receiving Communion. As to First Saturday, anyone unable to fulfill the devotion on Saturday may do so on Sunday this month by decree of this unworthy priest. In the words of Sister Lucy (speaking the words given to her), "The practice of this devotion will be equally acceptable on the Sunday following the First Saturday when My Priests, for a just cause, allow it to souls." Finally, there will obviously be no Eucharistic adoration this month. That will continue in January.

Mass will be live-streamed on Sunday (tomorrow) at 10:00 a.m. I ask that the church be empty at 9:15 a.m. (Individuals praying in the chapel on Thanksgiving Day contributed to the delay in Mass starting on time.)

Please do not forget the financial needs of the church at this time. Again, checks should be made to OLHC (not to me), and sent to my PO box. If you have envelopes, please use them. (FYI, these will remain sealed until they are processed.)

The following are protocols for families with coughing children: Mothers have the most difficult task of any of us in understanding how their childrens' symptoms should be interpreted. The following criteria should be adequate to answer the question. Children with chronic coughs of more than 10 days and who are fever-free may attend church. Children with coughs lasting less than 10 days or who have a fever should not attend church, nor should their parents. However, children who have tested negative for Coronavirus within 72 hours and who otherwise have mild symptoms may attend Mass along with their families.

I believe that Fr. Wiest is recovering slowly but surely. Contrary to rumor, he is still in the hospital. It appears to me that this is going to be a slow recovery. He has had a very lonely stay in the hospital, and has suffered greatly. Please keep him in your prayers.

In our Lord,

Fr. Starbuck

P.S. For updates from Angela Siffron please email her at: directly. I will send updates to her, which she will forward via the server list. In other words, do not contact me to be on this list. Please be sure to keep Angela updated on Covid cases in the parish.

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the loss of our good pastor, Fr. Patrick Perez. He died in the hospital early this morning. It is hard to find words in the midst of this incredible loss. We are grateful for his many years of leadership and service to our church. He fought the good fight. May he now rest in peace.

Please Continue to Pray for the Soul and Repose of Msgr. Patrick Perez.

Prayer for Fr. Wiest's speedy recovery.

O Jesus, eternal Priest, keep your priests within the shelter of Your Sacred Heart, where none may touch them. Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch Your Sacred Body. Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with your Precious Blood. Keep pure and unearthly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood. Let Your holy love surround them and shield them from the world’s contagion. Bless their labors with abundant fruit and may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here and in heaven their beautiful and everlasting crown. -St. Therese of Lisieux

Epiphany Blessing of the Home (January 6-13, 2013)

This blessing of the home and inscription of the initials of the three Magi above each door can be performed either by a priest or the father of the family. The feast of manifestation, or Epiphany, is traditionally celebrated the 12th day after Christmas.

On entering the home:

Priest, if present, or father of the family: Peace be to this house.

All: And to all who dwell herein. From the east came the Magi to Bethlehem to adore the Lord; and opening their treasures they offered precious gifts: gold for the great King, incense for the true God, and myrrh in symbol of His burial.

All pray the Magnificat: My soul doth magnify the Lord: and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden. For behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath magnified me: and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him throughout all generations. He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their seat and hath exalted the humble and meek. He hath filled the hungry with good things and the rich he hath sent empty away. He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel: as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed, for ever. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.”

(During the Magnificat, the room is sprinkled with holy water and incensed. After this is completed)

All: From the east came the Magi to Bethlehem to adore the Lord; and opening their treasures they offered precious gifts: gold for the great King, incense for the true God, and myrrh in symbol of His burial.

Priest, if present, or father of the family: Recite the Our Father…And lead us not into temptation

All: But deliver us from evil.

Priest, if present, or father of the family: All they from Saba shall come

All: Bringing gold and frankincense.

Priest, if present, or father of the family: O Lord, hear my prayer.

All: And let my cry come unto Thee.

Priest, if present, or father of the family: Let us pray. O God, who by the guidance of a star didst on this day manifest Thine only-begotten Son to the Gentiles, mercifully grant that we who know Thee by faith may also attain the vision of Thy glorious majesty. Through Christ our Lord.

All: Amen.

Priest, if present, or father of the family: Be enlightened, be enlightened, O Jerusalem, for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee – Jesus Christ born of the Virgin Mary.

All: And the Gentiles shall walk in thy light and kings in the splendor of thy rising, and the glory of the

Lord has risen upon thee.

Priest, if present, or father of the family: Let us pray. Bless, O Lord God almighty, this home, that in it there may be health, purity, the strength of victory, humility, goodness and mercy, the fulfillment of Thy law, the thanksgiving to God the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost. And may this blessing remain upon this home and upon all who dwell herein. Through Christ our Lord.

All: Amen.

After the prayers of the blessing are recited, each room of the home is sprinkled with holy water and incensed. The initials of the Magi: Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar, are inscribed above the doors with the blessed chalk.(Example: 20 + C + M + B + 12)
