Accommodating the Faithful
Sacred Heart makes every effort to accommodate and normalize the experience of Communion for the faithful, including those suffering from celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Therefore, if you wish to receive a low gluten host, please seek direction from Fr. Bob. You will be responsible for adding your host to the ciborium attached to the gold bowl and then receiving Communion from the pastor. If you have questions, please let us know ahead of time in order to normalize the experience of Communion. During Holy Week there will be extra low gluten hosts which will be consecrated for consumption.
TA few weeks ago I asked you to send me the question you might ask God. I've received a few, but I'd like to receive more from you. I want to share some of them with you. They really make me think -- go to prayer -- and they all point to Jesus.
Regarding a single question for God, I would have none. As situations arise in my life, I communicate with God as I would a close friend. I don't seek answers, only direction.
Another lady said she would ask the Lord, "What else do I need to do to serve you?"
In light of last weekend's readings, one of you said, "I'd ask Jesus, 'Who do you say that I am?'"
I don't want to let last weekend's Gospel go, so I hope you've thought a lot about how you would answer Jesus' question to his disciples: "Who do you say that I am?" If you shared your answer with a loved one, that is terrific. However, at least, reflect upon the question and your answer as you go through the day. If we believe that every person we meet is Jesus, who is that person to you? How do you see Jesus in them?
I've mentioned the past few weeks about my struggle with judgment when I drive around and see all the "blue" tents. I'm working hard at praying instead of judging (I have a long ways to go.) when I pass down Powell Blvd. or I-205 but asking Jesus to "Capture these families." Join me. I like that image of Jesus "capturing all of us" in His embrace. I keep being reminded that if this issue is to be resolved, the Lord has to do it!
Be aware as we enter fully into the Fall season of the changing colors of the trees around us. It's the sign of change, of dying but rising again. Our God doesn't leave us alone, but is always working on us to change and become brighter in the Light.
God Bless You.
