Untie the knots
When out life seems a hopeless bundle of impossible knots, let us tie one more: the one knot that does not restrain, but liberates.

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,

"Return to your Father who is waiting for you," the Pope said. "The God of tenderness will heal us; he will heal us of the many, many wounds of life and the many ugly things we have done. Each of us has our own! "God welcomes every repentant sinner with open arms. It is like going home. Lent is a special time to let God wash us, purify us, to let God embrace us. But many people today would tell me, 'Father, I can't go to confession because I can't leave the house. I want to make peace with the Lord, I want him to embrace me.'"
The Pope answers: "Do what the Catechism says. It is very clear: When sacramental confession is not possible, speak directly with God your Father, and tell him the truth. Say, 'Lord, I did this, this and this. Forgive me,' and ask for pardon with all your heart.
"Make an act of contrition, and tell God, 'I will go to confession afterward when it is once again possible, but forgive me now.' And immediately you will return to a state of grace with God. You can draw near to God's forgiveness without having a priest at hand. Think about it. This is that moment. This is the right time, the opportune moment. An act of contrition done well, and our souls will become white as snow."
We thank the Holy Father for these comforting words. STAY INSIDE! Make your confession directly to God. And experience the boundless wonders of God's love!
STAY WELL! STAY SAFE! STAY IN!

Palm Sunday Procession
With Palm Sunday we begin the Holiest week of the year, called appropriately: Holy Week. This day begins with the triumphal procession, and it ends with the Cross. Our lives, too, consist of both. You are invited to join us in this procession. We are together in spirit Holy Angels.
