Weekly Guide for Daily Prayer
The Tenth Week of Ordinary Time
The week begins with Trinity Sunday, which always follows Pentecost. It celebrates the un-knowable
relationship between the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit - and their loving support for us in our lives.
Wednesday is the Memorial of Saint Barnabas, Apostle. Friday is the Memorial of Saint Anthony of
Padua, Priest and Doctor of the Church. Thursday, around the world - except the U.S. - the Church
celebrates the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ.
During the week, we begin a three week period of looking at the Books of Kings. Elijah follows the
Lord's direction and changes the hearts of many. The week ends as Elijah calls Elisha into service for
This week we begin reading the Gospel According to Matthew, starting with the Sermon on the Mount.
Jesus is the new Moses, and offers us a new and radical teaching. It begins by his telling a small
group of followers that they are blessed - not because they have their acts together, but because they
are spiritually poor, meek, those desiring justice, the merciful, the clean of heart, the peacemakers
and the persecuted. Salt and light explain who they are as disciples. They are to obey the law and
prophets which Jesus came to fulfill. Whereas the law forbad killing, Jesus calls his disciples to be
reconcilers. The law forbad adultery, but Jesus warns about lust and whatever is an occasion for
sinning. The law forbad taking false oaths, but Jesus calls his disciples to a deeper fidelity and
Sunday is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ - in the U.S.. It is the great feast in
which we celebrate the gift of the Eucharist, but also the special blessing our the presence of our Lord
with us in the Blessed Sacrament. In Gospel, Jesus offers the most consoling good news: "Whoever
eats this bread will live forever." The rest of the world celebrates the Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary
Time. In that Gospel we witness Jesus' choice and missioning of the Twelve Apostles.
Daily Prayer This Week
Having celebrated God's love for us through love shown us by each Person of the Trinity, we are ready
to enter this week to explore the depth of that love and the powerful call each of us is given to love one
another. The Sermon on the Mount can help us be contemplatives in action this week. The Beatitudes
are not eight new commandments. Rather, Jesus saw those following him and saw their weakness
and their need, their goodness and their desire, even the cost they pay to follow him. He looked at
them and called them “Blessed.”
Let us all begin this week letting Jesus look at us and call us blessed. Each morning we can practice
choosing to focus our attention on some way we are spiritually poor or desiring justice, some way we
are merciful or a peace maker, some way we might be experiencing the cost of being a believer, and
simply asking our Lord to convince us of our blessedness there. It is likely that each of us, every day,
can be attentive to some aspect of our daily lives, some part of our relationships or responsibilities,
that place us right there in a place for Jesus to tell us that we will be comforted, satisfied, blessed
beyond our imagining.
Some day this week, each of us will have the opportunity to be the salt that makes relationships,
faithful living, have its flavor. We will have our chances to be light in the midst of the darkness that
crosses our paths. We can ask Jesus those days - whether in the morning, or in brief background
moments during the day - to have us not lose our flavor or to cover our light. And, all of us will face the
greater responsibility of a disciple of Jesus, to avoid anger and find the path to reconciliation, to turn
from lust and greed and to love genuinely and honestly.
It is a wonderful week to remember the tremendous gift of the Body and Blood of Jesus, given to us
for our nourishment and an example of self-sacrificing love. We can take time to express our gratitue
and humbly ask for the grace to be able to be broken and given, shared and poured out, as our Savior
is for us.

Please read all of this information carefully.
RECORDING: I will still be recording Mass on Saturdays, at least through the summer, and possibly beyond.
Folks seem to be enjoying that. Since the dispensation from the obligation to attend is lifted for the foreseeable
future, you may still watch it at home if you choose.
MASKS: Everyone who wishes to attend public Mass MUST wear a mask. If you can’t find one, I will have
masks available. They are $1 a piece. Please have correct change. This includes children and infants. If there
is a problem with smaller children wearing a mask, then they need to stay home, at least for these first weeks.
There is plenty of hand sanitizer for your use. It is suggested to use it as you enter.
WHO NEEDS TO STAY HOME:
• Those who are symptomatic or have been exposed to another with the virus are not permitted to enter.
• Those who are at risk because of some underlying health issue, or the elderly are strongly encouraged, for
their own health, to avoid the risk of attending public celebrations of the Mass.
• If you have a cough for any reason (allergies), or a cold, might be a good idea to stay home.
CAPACITY: IC will be able to handle approx.. 40-50 in church, and overflow in the hall with TV for about another
40. SV will be able to handle approx.. 100 for each Mass. These numbers are dependent upon the number of
singles, couples, or family groups attending. Please follow the directions from the USHERS. Thanks to Parish
Council/Finance members, who are volunteering.
WEEKDAY: If you are feeling uncomfortable about the larger groupings at this time, consider coming to a
weekday Mass to receive Communion. Monday & Thursday 8am at IC; Tuesday 7:15pm with rosary & devotions,
and Wednesday & Friday 8am at SV.
TIME CHANGE: Please note time change for the 2 SV Masses. 4pm instead of 5pm on Saturday, so that Mass
can be recorded and uploaded. 10:30 instead of 10 on Sunday. Mass remains at 8am on Sunday at IC
COLLECTION: Please place the collection in the container in the center aisle as you enter or leave. There will be
no taking up of collection during Offertory time.
NO MISSALETTES/MUSIC BOOKS: There may be papers available for personal use, as well as bulletins. You
must pick them up yourself. They will not be handed out. After Mass, hand the papers to the ushers who will
discard them. They will not be reused.
VOLUNTEERS: There will be sign up lists in the vestibules for volunteers to help usher in these coming weeks,
and, at St. Vincent, as we have 2 Masses, to help sanitize the pews after the 4pm Mass.
OPEN: So that the ushers can be here and be ready, Church will open ½ hour before Mass begins.
COMMUNION: Please note markings and keep distance between communicants. Communion only in the
hand. Please say ‘Amen’, receive in hand, then step to the side before pulling down your mask, communicate
yourself, then put mask back on.
AFTER MASS: This will probably be the most difficult, as many leave early or during the song. We will be
dismissing by row, so that people can keep the 6-foot social distancing. Depending on how many people attend,
we may have one side leave by side door, and the other by front door. PLEASE FOLLOW DIRECTIONS. I know
folks like to gather after, but please respect social distancing.
These and other rules have been given to us by all the bishops of the state of Missouri. Should we become a ‘hot
spot’, we will have to close. I think we will be fine if we practice patience, and respect for each other as a member
of the parish family. The first few weeks we will be learning; it will get easier as we go along. Let us take care of
each other and pray for each other.
