FOR JESUS HIMSELF TESTIFIED THAT A PROPHET HAS NO HONOR IN HIS NATIVE PLACE. WHEN HE CAME INTO GALILEE, THE GALILEANS WELCOMED HIM, SINCE THEY HAD SEEN ALL HE HAD DONE IN JERUSALEM AT THE FEAST, FOR THEY THEMSELVES HAD GONE TO THE FEAST. THEN HE RETURNED TO CANA IN GALILEE, WHERE HE HAD MADE THE WATER WINE. NOW THERE WAS A ROYAL OFFICIAL WHOSE SON WAS ILL IN CAPERNAUM. WHEN HE HEARD THAT JESUS HAD ARRIVED IN GALILEE FROM JUDEA, HE WENT TO HIM AND ASKED HIM TO COME DOWN AND HEAL HIS SON, WHO WAS NEAR DEATH. JESUS SAID TO HIM, “UNLESS YOU PEOPLE SEE SIGNS AND WONDERS, YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE.” THE ROYAL OFFICIAL SAID TO HIM, “SIR, COME DOWN BEFORE MY CHILD DIES.” JESUS SAID TO HIM, “YOU MAY GO; YOUR SON WILL LIVE.” THE MAN BELIEVED WHAT JESUS SAID TO HIM AND LEFT. WHILE THE MAN WAS ON HIS WAY BACK, HIS SLAVES MET HIM AND TOLD HIM THAT HIS BOY WOULD LIVE. HE ASKED THEM WHEN HE BEGAN TO RECOVER. THEY TOLD HIM, “THE FEVER LEFT HIM YESTERDAY, ABOUT ONE IN THE AFTERNOON.” THE FATHER REALIZED THAT JUST AT THAT TIME, JESUS HAD SAID TO HIM, “YOUR SON WILL LIVE,” AND HE AND HIS WHOLE HOUSEHOLD CAME TO BELIEVE. NOW, THIS WAS THE SECOND SIGN JESUS DID WHEN HE CAME TO GALILEE FROM JUDEA. ♪ VERBUM DOMINI ♪>>♪ LAUS TIBI, CHRISTE ♪>>Father: THE PRAYERS OF THE SACRED LITURGY HAVE BEEN PARTICULARLY STRIKING DURING THESE PAST FEW WEEKS. THE PRAYERS AT MASS, THE SACRED SCRIPTURES THAT WE’RE REFLECTING UPON DURING HOLY MASS HAVE BEEN ENLIGHTENING. PERHAPS, WHAT WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR EYES IS FRESH AND WE’RE GAZING UPON IT LIKE WE HAVE NEW EYES, MUCH LIKE THE GOSPEL READING FROM YESTERDAY, THE MAN BORN BLIND. THAT WHAT WE SEE IN FRONT OF OUR EYES, WHAT WE TAKE FOR GRANTED SO OFTEN, WE’RE BEING GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO LOOK UPON WITH NEW EYES, WITH HEARTS MADE CLEAN. THE MIDDAY READING FROM YESTERDAY, IN THE OFFICE OF READINGS THAT WE PRAY AS RELIGIOUS AND PRIESTS, AND A LOT OF LAY PEOPLE PRAY TOO THROUGHOUT THE CHURCH, SAYS THIS, FOR THE MIDDAY READING. IT’S FROM THE PROPHET ISAIAH. LOVE SAYS THE LORD OF GOD, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, BY WAITING AND BY CALM, YOU SHALL BE SAVED, IN QUIET AND IN TRUST, YOUR STRENGTH LIES. YET THE LORD IS SHOWING YOU FAVOR AND RISES TO PITY YOU. FOR THE LORD GOD IS A GOD OF JUSTICE. BLESSED ALL WHO WAIT FOR HIM. BY WAITING AND IN CALM, YOU SHALL BE SAVED. THOSE ARE HARD WORDS TO SWALLOW THESE DAYS. BY WAITING AND IN CALM. WHEN EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE IN A FRENZY. THE LORD WANTS US TO BE CALM AND TO WAIT ON HIM. THE READING CONTINUES, FOR THE LORD GOD IS A GOD OF JUSTICE, BLESSED ALL WHO WAIT FOR HIM. THE MIDDAY AFTERNOON READING SAYS — AND THIS IS FROM DEUTERONOMY — YOU SHALL SEEK THE LORD YOUR GOD AND YOU SHALL INDEED FIND HIM WHEN YOU SEARCH AFTER HIM, WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART AND YOUR WHOLE SOUL. IN YOUR DISTRESS, WHEN ALL THESE THINGS SHALL HAVE COME UPON YOU, YOU SHALL FINALLY RETURN TO THE LORD YOUR GOD AND HEED HIS VOICE. SINCE THE LORD YOUR GOD IS A MERCIFUL GOD, HE WILL NOT ABANDON YOU AND DESTROY YOU NOR FORGET THE COVENANT WHICH UNDER OATH, HE MADE WITH YOUR FATHERS. IN TIMES SUCH AS THESE, THE GREAT TEMPTATION IS TO SAY, WHERE ARE YOU, LORD, WHY HAVE YOU ABANDONED US, WHY ARE YOU ALLOWING THIS TO HAPPEN? WE CAN CHOOSE TO SAY THESE WORDS WITH FAITH OR WE CAN CHOOSE TO SAY THESE WORDS WITH BITTERNESS, WITH A FIST. WE CAN CHOOSE EVEN TO LOOK OFF AT OUR GOD, ON THE CROSS, AND TO SAY WHY, WHY, LORD, DO NOT ABANDON ME. OR WE CAN CHOOSE TO YELL AND SCREAM AT GOD AND TO BLAME GOD. REALLY, THE CHOICE IS OURS, HOW WE ARE TO APPROACH THIS. WITH HATRED AND BITTERNESS OR WITH FAITH. HOPEFULLY, WE ARE CHOOSING FAITH. HOPEFULLY, WE ARE BEGGING THE GRACE OF GOD TO PERHAPS MAKE THE BEST OUT OF THE SITUATIONS THAT WE FIND OURSELVES IN. THE TYPE OF WORDS THAT ARE DIRECTED TO THE LORD IN THE PSALMS ARE EXACTLY THESE. AND I WANTED TO READ JUST A FEW FOR YOU, FROM THE SCRIPTURES, PSALM 10, SPECIFICALLY, DELIVERANCE FROM ONE’S ENEMIES. AND THIS IS THE PSALMIST, CRYING OUT TO GOD, CRYING OUT TO GOD THAT HE MAY HEAR HIM. AND OF COURSE, GOD HEARS US. GOD ALWAYS HEARS US. BUT DO WE HEAR GOD SPEAKING? AND PSALM 10 SAYS, WHY DO YOU STAND AFAR OFF , O LORD? WHY DO YOU HIDE YOURSELF IN TIMES OF TROUBLE? IN ARROGANCE, THE WICKED HOTLY PURSUE THE POOR AND LET THEM BE CAUGHT IN THE SCHEMES WHICH THEY HAVE DEVISED. FOR THE WICKED BOASTS OF THE DESIRES OF HIS HEART AND A MAN, GREEDY FOR GAIN, CURSING AND RENOUNCE THE LORD. IN THE PRIDE OF HIS COUNTENANCE, THE WICKED DOES NOT SEEK HIM. ALL HIS THOUGHTS ARE, THERE IS NO GOD. THE THOUGHTS OF THE WICKED ARE, THERE IS NO GOD. BUT WE ARE OF FAITH. AND WE SAY: THERE IS GOD! THERE IS A GOD. THERE IS A GOD IN THE MIDST OF THIS. THERE IS A GOD THAT IS WALKING RIGHT IN THE MIDST OF ALL OF THIS. ALL THROUGHOUT THE WORLD, ALL THROUGHOUT THIS GLOBAL PANDEMIC, GOD CONTINUES TO WALK. GOD CONTINUES TO SPEAK. GOD CONTINUES TO LOOK UPON HIS PEOPLE. AND HE DOES THIS, OF COURSE, FROM THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER, IN HEAVEN. BUT HE WANTS US TO BE HIS MYSTICAL BODY, THE CHURCH. HE WANTS US TO BE COOPERATIVE WITH HIM PERHAPS AND HE WANTS US TO BE HIS EYES. HE WANTS US TO BE HIS EARS. HE WANTS US TO BE HIS HEART. TO GIVE PEOPLE HOPE, TO REACH OUT TO THOSE WHO ARE ABANDONED. PSALM 23, WHO EVERYBODY SHOULD KNOW AT THIS TIME, WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO RECITE BY HEART. THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD, I SHALL NOT WANT, IN VERDANT PASTURES — HE LIES DOWN IN GREEN PASTURES, HE LEADS ME BESIDE STILL WATERS. HE RESTORES MY SOUL. HE LEADS ME IN THE PATH OF RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR HIS NAMESAKE. EVEN THOUGH I WALK IN THE DARK VALLEY, IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH, I FEAR NO EVIL FOR YOU ARE AT MY SIDE. YOUR ROD AND YOUR STAFF, THEY COMFORT ME. YOU PREPARE A TABLE FOR ME IN THE PRESENCE OF MY ENEMIES. YOU ANOINT MY HEAD WITH OIL, MY CUP OVERFLOWS. SURELY GOODNESS AND KINDNESS SHALL FOLLOW ME ALL OF THE DAYS OF MY LIFE, AND I SHALL DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD FOREVER AND EVER. WE EVEN HAVE WATER DRIPPING UPON OUR CHAPEL THIS MORNING. GOD WANTS TO DO SOMETHING NEW WITHIN US AS THE READING FROM ISAIAH TELLS US, THIS MORNING, THOUGH I AM ABOUT TO CREATE A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH, THE THINGS OF THE PAST SHALL NOT BE REMEMBERED OR COME TO MIND. INSTEAD THERE SHALL ALWAYS BE REJOICING AND HAPPINESS IN WHAT I CREATE. ONLY GOD IS CREATIVE. SO, PICK UP YOUR BIBLES AND READ THEM THESE DAYS. TURN OFF THE NEWS. WE CAN STAY INFORMED OBVIOUSLY ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON. BUT OUR MINDS AND OUR HEARTS ARE NOT MEANT TO BE INUNDATED WITH NEWS AND FEAR AND ANXIETY. OUR MINDS AND OUR HEARTS ARE MADE FOR GOD. OUR MINDS AND OUR HEARTS ARE MADE FOR CONTEMPLATION. AND WE WILL NEVER FORGET THIS LENT, WILL WE? NO. WE WILL NEVER FORGET THIS LENT. DURING THESE PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS, WEEK THREE AND WEEK FOUR. TODAY, WE’RE IN WEEK FOUR OF LENT. WE MEDITATE UPON THE BAPTISMAL SCRUTINIES OF LENT. WEEK THREE WAS THE WOMAN AT THE WELL. YESTERDAY’S GOSPEL, THE MAN BORN BLIND. AND THIS COMING SUNDAY IS THE RAISING OF LAZARUS FROM THE DEAD. AND THEY APPLY, NOT JUST TO THE CATECHUMEN, THAT IS, THOSE SEEKING TO BE BAPTIZED AND TO THE CANDIDATES SEEKING FULL COMMUNION WITH THE CHURCH. BUT THESE SCRUTINIES APPLY TO EVERY CHRISTIAN ALREADY, ALL OF THE BAPTIZED. AND DURING THIS TIME, THE CHURCH PROPOSES THESE READINGS TO THOSE WHO ARE PREPARING FOR THE SACRAMENTS. AGAIN, ESPECIALLY BAPTISM. AND THEY ARE INVITED TO A STAGE CALLED PURIFICATION AND ENLIGHTENMENT AND THE ELECT, THOSE PREPARING FOR EASTER SACRAMENT OF INITIATION ARE INVITED TO REFLECT ON THE FULL MEANING OF THE STEP THEY ARE PREPARING TO TAKE. THESE READINGS ARE MEANT TO BRING GOD’S ILLUMINATING WORD TO THE ELECT SO THAT WHATEVER IS WEAK OR SINFUL IN THEIR HEARTS CAN BE HEALED. AND WHATEVER IS GOOD IN THEM MAY BE STRENGTHENED. THE WHOLE CHURCH, THOSE OF US WHO HAVE BEEN CATHOLIC SINCE BIRTH OR THOSE WHO HAVE EMBRACED THE CATHOLIC FAITH AS ADULTS ARE REINVITED ONCE AGAIN TO PONDER, AGAIN, WITH THE ELECT WHAT THEY ARE ABOUT TO RECEIVE WITH THE SACRAMENTS AT EASTER. BASICALLY, WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A CHRISTIAN, WHAT IT MEANS TO FOLLOW CHRIST AND TO ENCOUNTER HIM IN THE SACRAMENTS. IN THESE DAYS, I PRAY, AND I’VE HEARD OTHER PEOPLE PRAY FOR THIS TOO, OTHER PRIESTS, THOSE OF US WHO HAVE THE PRIVILEGE TO OFFER THE SACRAMENTS AND TO CELEBRATE THE HOLY MASS EVERYDAY. IN THESE DAYS, MINE AND OUR SPECIFIC PRAYER IS THAT EVERYBODY MAY HUNGER FOR GOD MORE. THAT WE MAY HAVE A DEEP YEARNING AND HUNGER FOR GOD. THAT GOD WANTS TO SATISFY US, FOR THE GOD THAT WANTS TO SATISFY US. MOST OF ALL THAT WE MAY HUNGER FOR GOD IN THE MOST HOLY SACRAMENT OF THE ALTAR, THE BREAD OF LIFE. SO MANY OF YOU ARE SO USED TO GOING TO MASS EVERY SINGLE WEEK, MAYBE EVEN EVERYDAY AND RECEIVING THE BREAD OF LIFE. THE BREAD WHICH SATISFIES. AND YOU FEEL THIS VOID, YOU FEEL THIS HUNGER IN YOUR HEARTS AND I PRAY THAT THIS HUNGER INCREASE DURING THESE DAYS, DURING THIS UNFORESEEN OR UNFORESEEABLE FUTURE EVEN. HUNGER, PRAY FOR THAT HUNGER DURING THESE DAYS. THE 40 DAYS OF LENT FOR EACH OF US IS A PREPARATION FOR WHAT WE’RE GOING TO DO AT THE EASTER VIGIL, OR EASTER SUNDAY. PRAY GOD WILLING THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO GATHER ON THOSE DAYS. AND WHAT WILL WE DO PRIMARILY ON THOSE DAYS? NOT JUST RECEIVE THE SACRAMENTS BUT WE WILL RENEW OUR BAPTISMAL PROMISES. WE WILL RENOUNCE SIN. WE WILL RENOUNCE SATAN. WE WILL RENOUNCE ALL OF HIS EMPTY SHOW AND ALL OF HIS EMPTY PROMISES. AND WE WILL PROFESS FAITH IN CHRIST. AND THE PRIEST WILL ASK US THESE QUESTIONS. OUR RESPONSE WILL BE, I DO. DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD THE FATHER, CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH? I DO. DO YOU BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST, HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON? I DO. THE SCRUTINIES THAT WE ARE MEDITATING UPON, AGAIN, LAST WEEK, THIS WEEK AND NEXT WEEK, INVITE US NOT SO MUCH TO LOOK AT OURSELVES, THAT IS, AN INWARD GAZE AT OUR WEAKNESSES AND OUR SINS BUT IN EACH SCRUTINY, WE ARE INVITED, THAT IS, WE ARE INVITING CHRIST TO LOOK UPON US. THE SCRUTINY — THE WORD SCRUTINY COMES FROM THE LATIN WORD SCRUTARI MEANING THOSE WHO SEARCH THROUGH PILES OF RUBBISH IN HOPES OF FINDING SOMETHING. THE CHURCH IS NOT IMPLYING THAT EACH OF US IS A GARBAGE PILE BUT RATHER, BY USING THE TERM SCRUTINY, THE CHURCH IS INVITING US TO A SERIOUS EXAMINATION AND CAREFUL INQUIRY INTO THE LIFE, NEW LIFE WITH JESUS CHRIST. JUST TO CLOSE, THE FIRST SCRUTINY WAS THE WOMAN AT THE WELL. JESUS COMES TO THE WOMAN AND ASKED HER FOR A DRINK. I THIRST. AND JESUS THIRSTS FOR YOU. JESUS COMES TO YOU, TO ME, AND HE SAYS, I THIRST. WHAT DOES HE THIRST FOR? YOUR RESPONSE, YOUR FAITH, YOUR WHOLEHEARTED ASCENT. IT’S LIKE THE MAN FROM THE GOSPEL TODAY, COMING TO JESUS, AND BEGGING TO HEAL HIS CHILD. JESUS HEALS HIS CHILD BECAUSE HE SEES THE MAN’S FAITH. YOUR SON IS CURED. YESTERDAY, THE SECOND SCRUTINY WAS THE MAN BORN BLIND. AND WE ARE TOLD HERE THAT JESUS IS GOING TO GIVE US A NEW SET OF EYES. HE IS GOING TO GIVE US A VISION OF ANOTHER WORLD. LET’S PRAY FOR THAT THIS WEEK AND IN THESE COMING WEEKS AND IN THESE MONTHS EVEN. TO PRAY THAT WE HAVE A NEW SET OF EYES, A NEW PERSPECTIVE, THAT JESUS MAY GIVE US THIS. THAT WE MAY ALLOW JESUS TO LOOK AT US. NOT SO MUCH US GAZING AT JESUS, THAT IS OF COURSE, SECONDARY BUT PRIMARILY THAT THE GOD MAN IS GAZING AT US AND WE NEED TO ALLOW HIM TO GIVE HIM PERMISSION TO GAZE UPON US. TO GAZE UPON OUR WOUNDS. TO GAZE UPON OUR WEAKNESS, TO GIVE US NEW EYES OF LIVING FAITH. HUMBLY AWARE OF OUR DEPENDENCE UPON GOD, AS TRUSTING CHILDREN, WE CONFIDENTLY BRING TO HIM OUR NEEDS.>>IN THANKSGIVING FOR THE ADVANCEMENTS OF SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE THAT HAVE LED TO IMPROVEMENTS IN HEALTH, AND THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WOULD INSPIRE NEW BREAKTHROUGHS IN OVERCOMING THE CORONAVIRUS, WE PRAY TO THE LORD.>>LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER.>>FOR THOSE WHO ARE SUFFERING OR DYING FROM THE CORONAVIRUS OR FLU VIRUSES, THAT THROUGH THIS TRIAL THEY BE BROUGHT NEAR TO THE HEART OF JESUS AND RECEIVE HEALING IN BODY AND SOUL FROM THE DIVINE PHYSICIAN, WE PRAY TO THE LORD.>>LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER.>>FOR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS WHO CARE FOR THE SICK, THAT THE LORD PROTECT THEM FROM THE ILLNESSES THEY ARE TREATING, AND MAKE THEM INSTRUMENTS OF HIS HEALING, WE PRAY TO THE LORD.>>LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER.>>FOR THOSE WHO HAVE DIED FROM THE CORONAVIRUS OR FLU VIRUSES THIS YEAR, THAT THE LORD GRANT THEM ETERNAL REST, AND CONSOLATION AND THE HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE TO THEIR LOVED ONES, WE PRAY TO THE LORD.>>LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER.>>O GOD, WHO KNOW THAT BECAUSE OF HUMAN FRAILTY, WE CANNOT STAND FIRM AMID SUCH GREAT DANGERS.

    No need to ask God why. Many need to acknowledge what was prophesied in the Holy scriptures. Particularly, the Revelations chapters. Doing this will explain why.

    I think the EWTN Priests should pray the St Michael's prayer with the laity before the closing hymn is sung.

    I love the communion hymn entitled Jerusalem, My Happy Home. I heard this one from the Recessional Hymn of the Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem.

    Beautiful service, thank you, and God bless you. Why, oh why do you celebrate the Sacred Mystery – Mass – with your back to the Tabernacle? You kneel down to it, yet you had your back to the Lord? How can the Novus Ordo be allowed to show such disrespect? How can the priests not see the lack of basic respect to Our Blessed Lord? If the Queen was sitting where the Tabernacle was, would you show such disrespect? Yet, she is just human!! How long can this be allowed to go on? For goodness sake, give God the respect due. He is the focal point, He is to be worshiped and adored. Certainly, the Angels would not be seeing doing this? How can you not think for yourselves? Man is created to worship God!! Basic manners of showing respect is long overdue and the Altar arrangements that the Novus Ordo has done away with should be put right!!!!

    Latin is very sweet language. We need to return to full Latin…I like Latin when used for liturgical prayers like this. Thank you Fr. John Paul

    of lung disease! Doctor told me I have a 3-6% chance of thyroid cancer after praying to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and asking Saint Bishop Fulton Sheen to interseed. The only thing I have to do is have an ultrasound in 6 months to keep an eye on things! Thank you SACRED HEART OF JESUS AND SAINT BISHOP FULTON SHEEN! Ask them to help you, and they will!
