Please read a letter from the Diocese of Phoenix outlining new procedures now in place as a response to the Coronavirus epidemic. We appreciate the support of our parishioners and visitors during this rapidly developing situation. Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Diocese of Phoenix, pray for us.

David LinsCatholic Thoughts

April 2

04-02-2020David Lins

Readings for the Day: GN 17:3-9, PS 105:4-9, JN 8:51-59

As I am prone to do, I’d like to zero in on one line from today’s readings. And you don’t need to go far to find it. It is the first half of the first line of the First Reading: “When Abram prostrated himself, God spoke to him…”

When was the last time we humbled ourselves before God? I’m talking getting on our knees next to our beds and pleaded with him? I’m talking let our requests be so real that tears have fallen from our eyes? I’m talking walking down the center aisle of our church (where we’ve moved adoration to aid in social distancing) and laid down on our chests to beg God?
