Reverence & Holy Silence in the Church

From the March 3 Pastor's Pen ... With our renovated church and blessing by Bishop Shawn McKnight, we are feeling great to be back in the well-lit house of prayer and worship. And so now it should draw our attention to the tabernacle being in the center and an attractive crucifix above it as we walk into the church. Our focus must be on Jesus and his presence that must lead us to give due reverence to the sanctuary. Therefore, I suggest that we genuflect in reverence (all those who can) as we step in to the church and maintain sacred silence. From now on, all our conversation before or after Mass will take place in the gathering area which is spacious enough but never to be in the church any more. This will allow others who want to continue to pray after Mass to do so comfortably. We all must collectively enforce this norm admonishing one another with Christian charity when we find someone failing in this respect. Finally, I would request everyone to take this little discipline seriously and help one another to follow it. 

Stations of the Cross,  Lenten Reconciliation

Stations of the Cross will be prayed each Friday of Lent at 7pm at Sacred Heart, following the Knights of Columbus Fish Frys. If you missed the March 12 communal reconciliation Service at Sacred Heart, there is a list in the Catholic Missourian of the Lenten communal reconciliation services in the Jefferson City diocese. All services begin at 7pm unless otherwise stated. If you are looking for a daily Lenten devotion, visit Best Lent Ever (Dynamic Catholic) or Daily Lenten Gospel Reflections (Word on Fire).
