HAPPY 107th BIRTHDAY!

Yes, you read that correctly.... 107 years old!

You may recognize Caridad from the Saturday 5pm Mass which she attended faithfully with her daughters until the pandemic.

Caridad Papa was born on August 14, 1913, in the Philippines. 
She raised 5 children, 3 sons, and 2 daughters.
She has 15 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren and 
2 great-great-grandchildren. 
Caridad has been a parishioner of Holy Angels since 1983. 
She attributes her good health and long life to God for 
blessing her with a loving family and a deep abiding faith. 
 
The greatest milestone of her life was receiving a personal blessing from Pope John Paul II 
in 1998 on a pilgrimage to Rome.   
Caridad has now lived through 2 pandemics!

May the Lord bless her on her August 14th     birthday and throughout the year.

BETHLEHEM ART WORKS

Hello Father Kevin 

As you know, the recent pandemic has had a devastating impact all around the world. In the Holy Land specifically, our Christian brothers and sisters have been suffering due to the lack of tourism during these times. The authorities are not allowing any visitors into the Holy Land due to safety concerns and that has devastated the economy. They are no longer able to sell their beautiful hand made olive wood carvings. Because of that, many of our brothers and sisters have been out of work for several months. On top of that, we have also been unable to visit parishes and sell their products as we usually would. So, to further assist them and achieve our goal of keeping a Christian presence in the Holy Land, we have created a website to sell their religious olive wood products online. We would like to ask your assistance by promoting our website in your bulletin for the church community. We hope that with your help, we can continue to make a difference and support our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land. 

Website is  www.BethlehemArtWorks.net 

Thank you and God Bless!

Strong in the Face of Tribulation

Our Holy Father has been the model of strength and compassion during this pandemic.  He has offered us breathtaking liturgies, heartfelt homilies, memorable social media posts, and multiple resources for prayer.  He has offered courageous leadership to his Church and to the world.

Now the Vatican is offering a 192-page digital book for a FREE download -- Strong in the Face of Tribulation: The Church in Communion – A Support in Time of Trial.  It is a collection of the Pope’s homilies, prayers, and messages.  You may access the book at this link:

Pope Francis Prayer to Protect the World

O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign
of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, 
Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in 
Jesus' pain, keeping your faith firm. You, 
Salvation of the Faithful, know what we need, 
and we are sure you will provide so that, 
as in Cana of Galilee, we may return to joy 
and to feasting after this time of trial. 

Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform 
to the will of the Father and to do as we are 
told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself 
our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, 
through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.

Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. 
Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, 
abut deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for us.

Dear Holy Angels!

This is the church of the catacombs!  We are asked to stay inside our homes, for our own protection and the protection of others.  This is extremely vital, and we ask that you all do that.

But it is also a time to rediscover the home, to rediscover the hidden beauty of a life of intimate prayer, to rediscover God in the silence.  Free from the usual distractions of daily life, this can be a real moment of grace for us if we allow it to be.  Let the home become our church, a real house of prayer.

This time of the catacombs is also a time to think of others.  We have time now perhaps to reach out to people we have not spoken to in a long time.  Physical visits are not possible, but, thanks to telephones and computers, we can establish wonderful contact with people who are dear to us, or with people who need us.  Let us think of those who most need our love right now.  This, too, can be a moment of grace for us, if we allow it to be.

This is also an ideal time to reconnect with ourselves!  In the hustle and bustle of our lives, we often do not take time for ourselves.  Sometimes we, consciously or unconsciously, actually run away from ourselves, avoid time by ourselves, avoid encounters with the person in the mirror.  When we go on retreat, we are brought back into contact with that person.  This time of isolation is also a time of retreat, a real-time of grace.  Let us use it well, and let us get to know the person we find in the mirror.

Let us not allow this time to become a time of fear or a time of panic.  Let us rather allow it to be for us a time of grace, a time of strength, a time for opening our hearts to love.  Let us allow God to enter in!

PLEASE STAY AT HOME!!  PLEASE STAY WITH GOD!!

United in prayer,

Fr. Kevin
