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.
What a terrific Mother’s Day weekend.
I can’t stop thinking about all of the wonderful words shared by many of you about the women in your life. As I ponder it more I realize that one of the strongest foundations of our parish is the women who have brought so many others up to be the strong people we are today. It also made me realize I need to let the women in my life know today how much they support and care and help me grow in my faith. How about we all do that? It will guarantee for sure that we are solidly on the road to heaven.
I wanted to update you on my health. I’m not checking out anytime soon, I don’t think but many of you have noticed that I have definitely slowed down. About the first of March I noticed that I was becoming short of breath, dizzy and lightheaded, and of course my balance seemed to get worse. I confess being a typical male I didn’t hurry to the doctor. Once I did decide to go to the cardiologist I realized or encountered the pandemic slow down. I finally got into him and my primary who both felt that everything was OK. They changed my heart medication and took me off one and added another. Taking me off of the one immediately cleared up the dizziness and lightheadedness. However their concern is my blood pressure. So I have had four EKGs in the last couple of weeks and they have determined I need to wear a heart monitor for a couple of days and have an echocardiogram. They cannot do anything without that information. OK. I’ve been through that before and I tried to schedule but once again the delays occurred. I cannot get my heart monitor till the end of May and my echo isn’t until June 2. So we wait. I do experience shortness of breath at times which is a new experience but the blood pressure has come down and I am feeling pretty good. I am gone on vacation and I will be back on May 21st. Father Bruce is going to graciously cover for me. He is a blessing. But I wanted to update you and I’m not going anywhere and I can keep working as long as you want me. Just know you’re loved and I so appreciate all of you. I am really looking forward to the celebration of Pentecost on June 4. Get your red shirts out.
God bless you.
