The Mass by Bishop Robert Barron will help you understand how to fully, consciously, and actively participate in the source and summit of the Christian life. See how the Mass brings us out of the fallen world and into the heavenly realm, how it resonates with a call from God and a response from his people, the Church, and, most importantly, how we are intimately joined with the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist.
The series will run consecutive Friday nights, 7:00PM-9:00PM, October 12th,
19th & 26th in the Mothers’ Room, IHM. Free admission and refreshments will beavailable. For more information call, Jan Donovan, 760-440-9905

“Think about the possibilities if we all made a sincere daily commitment, no matter how small, to make a positive difference in the lives of those around us.” Do we sometimes feel overwhelmed in the face of the relentless assault on the Church, our beliefs and our families by the media and modern culture?

The Pardon of the Sinful Woman Luke 7:36-50 Simon does not see the difference between his hospitality and that of the woman. He is focused not only on the inappropriateness of her actions but on Jesus’ willingness to accept her gesture. Jesus tells Simon the parable of the money lender and opens his eyes. By faith, the woman approached Jesus, knowing that he would forgive her for her sins. Prayer: I often find it difficult to forgive myself. It is in those times that I remember the depth and breadth of your mercy.Read More

Jesus’ Testimony to John Luke 7:31-35 Jesus tells the crowds that the people of “this generation” are like obstinate children. Nothing satisfies them. Their reasons for rejecting Jesus are inconsistent with their reasons for rejecting John. They are closed to God’s working in Jesus. Those who are open and embrace God’s plan will be vindicated. Prayer: Let us pray for the people of “this generation” who seek satisfaction in all the wrong things and all the wrong places. Jesus, open their eyes.Read More

Raising of the Widow’s Son Luke 7:11-17 For a widow, the death of her only son means far more than the pain of the obvious loss.

Prayer: Lord God, you visit your people and pour out your love and compassion, bringing healing and wholeness.Read More
