Bloom Where You Are Planted
July 12, 2020

Just like seeds, we too need good soil to grow and blossom.  But what is good soil really?  Do we curse the randomness of our birth, or do we bloom exactly where we are?

Dear Holy Angels. To limit the spread of Covid-19, we are working remotely from home, but we are here for you over the phone, email, and social media. Today, more than ever, your church needs your financial help. Please click "Online Giving" to donate.

JULY FOOD DRIVE - The need is growing

Many of our neighbors are struggling during this time with food insecurity. Let's help them by donating canned and boxed food to be given to Mother Teresa's Missionaries and Foothill Unity Center.
JULY FOOD DRIVE, Sunday, July 19th
Drop off food donations from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. during the In-Car Communion procession Volunteers (with masks and gloves) will be at the school lunch table area to take your donations out of your car.  You do not get out of your car. Just drive up, stop and open your trunk.

Then you will continue through the procession to receive Holy Communion.

Foothill Unity is seeing 3x the number of services with over 68% new families. Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity are giving out food at their Food Bank and are back out on the streets of Los Angeles feeding the homeless and poor.  
The NEED is growing every day!

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
