IHM CHURCH - July 19 Bulletin
Hello everyone. I hope you are well and keeping safe. Thank you so much for your prayers for my Aunt Eileen and for expressions of loving support for my family. So thoughtful! My mom and my cousins join me in being so grateful.
Sorry about the surprising news last week about my new assignment. It really came out of the blue. I have been so touched and edified by so many notes and emails. Your kindness is amazing. The Cardinal is in a tough position as the priest bench gets emptier. As much as I am sad leaving here, I understand the request that I take on a new challenge to help the people of Holy Name and to assist the Archdiocese in a smooth transition from a Franciscan staff to a diocesan one. It is with a heavy heart I leave such a wonderful parish. I ask for your prayers as I will try my best at Holy Name of Jesus in Manhattan.
Your new pastor here at IHM is someone I have known for many years and what I know most about him is his love for God’s people. In fact, he is a true “people person.” He also has a good head on his shoulders and I simply think you will come to appreciate him very quickly as he will look for many avenues of service to the wonderful people of Immaculate Heart of Mary. May I ask you to welcome him with the same kindness as you welcomed me. I will announce his name as soon as I get the green light. Stay tuned. It might be out already by the time this bulletin is printed.
In the meantime, I never tire of words from homilies by Saint Jose Maria Escriva or the topic of the Blessed Virgin. Talk about “win-win!”
Let us turn our eyes towards Mary. No creature ever surrendered herself to the plans of God more humbly than she. The humility of the ancilla Domini, the handmaid of the Lord, is the reason we invoke her as causa nostrae laetitiae, cause of our joy. After Eve had sinned through her foolish desire to be equal to God, she hid herself from the Lord and was ashamed: she was sad. Mary, in confessing herself the handmaid of the Lord, becomes the Mother of the divine Word, and is filled with joy. May the rejoicing that is hers, the joy of our good Mother, spread to all of us, so that with it we may go out to greet her, our Holy Mother Mary, and thus become more like Christ, her Son.

Prayer Against Coronavirus
Lord Jesus Christ, our Divine Physician, we ask you to guard and protect us from Coronavirus COVID-19 and all serious illness.
For all that have died from it, have mercy;
For those that are ill now, bring healing;
For those searching for a remedy, enlighten them;
For medical caregivers helping the sick, strengthen and shield them;
For those working to contain the spread, grant them success;
For those afraid, grant peace;
May your precious blood be our defense and salvation.
By your grace, may you turn the evil of disease into moments of
consolation and hope.
May we always fear the contagion of sin more than any illness.
We abandon ourselves to your infinite mercy.
