Letter to the Catholic Faithful of the Diocese of Rockville Centre
From Bishop John O. Barres


Seventh Sunday of Easter, May 24, 2020,

In Saint John’s Gospel this weekend, the Seventh Sunday of Easter, we proclaim that “Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said, ‘Father, the hour has come. Give glory to your son, so that your son may glorify you...’.”

In reflecting on this passage, I immediately began to think about our priests in the Diocese of Rockville Centre, who glorify the Father by serving the faithful daily. These are enormously trying times for all of us, but our priests and pastors have risen to the occasion in so many creative ways. They serve the people of God through on-line Masses, blessing homes in their parishes, curbside adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and much more.

Always, I pray this email finds you all well and praying as a family.

This Sunday’s Gospel of John 20:19-23 takes place on the third day after Jesus died. The disciples were gathered under locked doors for fear of the Jews. Suddenly Jesus appears and said “Peace be with you”. Jesus gave them peace. Jesus is alive! He is Risen!

In the midst of this pandemic, we are experiencing worries, anxieties, problems, disappointments and death. Through emails you have watched videos, read, and live streamed mass in your home re the Passion, Death, Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord. Therefore, let us receive His peace, let us rejoice, Jesus is alive, He is risen, He is with us.

The Apostolic Penitentiary, a Vatican tribunal that deals with matters of conscience, issued a decree on March 20th offering the spiritual assistance of special indulgences to people afflicted with COVID-19, to those in quarantine, to medical personnel caring for coronavirus patients and to all those who are praying for them. You can read the decreee below:

The gift of special Indulgences is granted to the faithful suffering from COVID-19 disease, commonly known as Coronavirus, as well as to health care workers, family members and all those who in any capacity, including through prayer, care for them.

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer” (Rom 12: 12). The words written by Saint Paul to the Church of Rome resonate throughout the entire history of the Church and guide the judgment of the faithful in the face of all suffering, sickness and calamity.

From Deacon's Bench

By Deacon John

Monday in the Ninth Week of Ordinary Time - June 1, 2020

The Blessed Virgin Mary Mother of the Church

2 Thessalonians 3: 10b - 13

    Today, In addition to the restart of Ordinary Time in the Church’s Liturgical year, we honor the “Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church”  The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, an office in the Vatican that is in charge of these matters, decreed that this day be marked with “joyous veneration given the Mother of God by the Contemporary Church”.  We have therefore yet another great Spiritual reality for our reflection, Our Mother Mary.  Today, as we carry on with all that we need to do, let our hearts and minds recall Mary’s response to God.  Her “yes” set in motion for us the blessed opportunity for our salvation.  

    We return today to Ordinary time in the liturgical calendar.  There are two Special seasons in the Church’s liturgical calendar: Advent/Christmas and Lent/Easter.   Each of these seasons provide us with much in the life of Jesus.  

When we speak of Ordinary time, we aren’t using that term to mean mundane or boring.  How could anything in the life of Jesus be mundane?  Boring?  Not even the slightest chance.   Instead, when we use the term “Ordinary Time” we speak of how Jesus, everyday,  lived, taught, preached and proclaimed the Kingdom of God to all people.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Saint John gives us this beautiful description of the purpose of our life: “this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” Jn 17,3. So the goal of our life is to acquire the eternal life; that is immortality. And we all love it, we all love to be immortal, to be indestructible, to be eternally healthy, incorruptible, to be superhuman.

Jesus makes it very simple and straight forward as it comes to: knowing the only true God, and Jesus Christ. We rejoice in the simplicity of it, yet we find the hard point of it when it comes to the question, what about the death?

Death hurts! Death hurts badly! Death hurts us twice, once when the people we love die, and second time when we have to die. Death is the terrible thing in this whole project of beautiful eternal life. We find no escape from it. We find no way around it. It hurts.

The only one who has the answer to this, the only one who has the solution to this trouble, the only one who has the remedy to this painful reality is Jesus. He is the answer, he is the key, he is the remedy, he is the resurrection and life as he said.

Divine Mercy Please join in praying the Divine Mercy Novena beginning today, Good Friday.

During the 1930s, Jesus revealed the depths of His merciful love for mankind to a Polish nun, St. Faustina Kowalska. After her death in 1938 at age 33, Sister Faustina’s diary became a manual for the 

Divine Mercy devotion, and from it came a nine-day series of prayers intended to be offered starting on Good Friday, in preparation for the Feast of Divine Mercy (the Second Sunday of Easter).

This novena was given by Jesus particularly to St. Faustina Kowalska (Diary, 1210-1229). For each of the nine days, our Lord gave her a different intention — a different group of souls — which He wanted her to bring to Him in prayer. The Lord Jesus promised: “By this novena, I will grant every possible grace to souls” (Diary, 796).

Pope John Paul II, who in 2000 canonized St. Faustina and established the Divine Mercy Sunday for the universal Church, said, “Those who sincerely say ‘Jesus, I trust in You’ will find comfort in all their anxieties and fears” (Krakow, Poland, June 7, 1997).

Download the prayers here and join the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, St. Faustina’s religious order, online to pray the novena at 3 p.m. EDT daily on YouTube and Facebook from the Saint John Paul II National Shrine in Washington, D.C. The live daily broadcasts will also available on demand after the initial broadcast at 3 p.m.
