Scripture and Tradition with Fr. Mitch Pacwa – 2020-03-17 – 03/17/2020


[GUITAR THEME MUSIC] [APPLAUSE] THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND WELCOME MY FATHER MITCH AND WELCOME TO SCRIPTURE AND TRADITION. 1ST I WANT TO WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY. I KNOW THAT THERE ARE NOT ANY PARADES. AND I AM ALSO AWARE THAT IN MANY PLACES THE CHURCHES ARE NOT OPEN. AND YOU COULD NOT GET OVER TO MASS TO CELEBRATE. SOME PLACES YOU CAN IN SOME PLACES YOU CAN’T. THIS IS VERY SERIOUS VERY SERIOUS SITUATION THAT WE HAVE AROUND THE WORLD. THIS IS NOT JUST AN AMERICAN PROBLEM THIS IS A GLOBAL PANDEMIC. WE ARE SEEING RAPID INCREASE OF INFECTION BECAUSE APPARENTLY PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO FIGHT THIS VIRUS. IT IS VERY CONTAGIOUS. WE WILL GET THAT. THAT IS 1 OF THE AMAZING THINGS ABOUT THE WAY THE LORD GOD HAS MADE US. WHEN SOME SORT OF VIRUS OR BACTERIA ENTERS INTO THE HUMAN POPULATION, A LOT OF PEOPLE DIE. IT IS HIGHLY RISKY. BUT, WE ALSO SEE THAT WE DEVELOP COMMUNITIES AT CERTAIN LEVELS TO A LOT OF THEM AND SOMETIMES VERY HIGH LEVELS OF IMMUNITY BUT IT TAKES TIME. RIGHT NOW WE ARE BEING HIT BY A FAIRLY UNKNOWN NEW TO US KIND OF VIRUS. THIS IS OUR SITUATION. I ALSO KNOW A LOT OF US HAVE TO STAY AT HOME. CANNOT GO TO WORK CANNOT GO TO SCHOOL. THE SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED ALL OVER THE COUNTRY FOR THE PROTECTION OF OUR PEOPLE. ALONG WITH THE CHURCHES. THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT WE CANNOT TAKE TIME TO PRAY. SINCE WE ARE AT HOME AND WE DO NOT HAVE AS MUCH WORK TO DO WE COULD DO CERTAIN THINGS LIKE SIT AROUND ON THE COUCH AND GO STIR CRAZY AND GET CABIN FEVER AS A WAY TO AVOID THE VIRUS FEVER. OR YOU COULD ALSO DEVELOP A DAILY ROUTINE THAT DEALS WITH A VARIETY OF THINGS. FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE, 1 OF THE POINTS WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE IS A LOT MORE PRAYER. YES WE CANNOT GO TO CHURCH IN SOME PLACES OR ONLY A COUPLE OF PEOPLE AT A TIME ARE ALLOWED IN THE CHURCHES. CROWDS OF MORE THAN 25 AND IN SOME PLACES CROWDS OF NO MORE THAN 10 CAN GET TOGETHER. SO THINK OF IT IS BEING LIKE THE RESTAURANTS. RESTAURANTS AND BARS ARE BEING CLOSED. ACTUALLY AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED THE CLOSING OF THE BARS MIGHT HELP IMPROVE OUR CELEBRATION OF ST. PATRICK’S DAY. THE WAY THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE GONE ON CELEBRATING HIM IS THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT HE LIVED FOR. HE WAS A PREACHER OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, NOT A PROMOTER OF BEING DRUNK. SO IF YOU CANNOT GO TO THE BARS AND YOU CANNOT GO TO THE RESTAURANTS, DOES THAT MEAN THAT YOU WILL STOP EATING? JUST BECAUSE YOU CANNOT GO TO A RESTAURANT TO EAT? I DO NOT THINK SO. YOU HAVE TO ADAPT TO YOUR EATING PATTERNS AT HOME. AND COOK FOR YOURSELF. SIMILARLY EVEN THOUGH WE CANNOT ALWAYS GO TO CHURCH IN MANY LOCATIONS THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT WE CANNOT PRAY. IF WE CAN CONTINUE TO EAT, WE CAN ALSO CONTINUE TO PRAY AND THIS SHOULD BE 1 OF OUR MANY REACTIONS TO THIS WHOLE EPIDEMIC. WE WANT TO PRAY ESPECIALLY FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE VULNERABLE FROM GETTING THIS VIRUS. THE HEALING OF ITS VICTIMS. THE PROTECTION OF MEDICAL STAFF. AND 1ST RESPONDERS. IN SOME PLACES LIKE ITALY THEY ARE VERY MUCH IN GREAT DEMAND AND A NUMBER OF THEM ARE SUFFERING INCLUDING THE PAIN OF TRYING TO DEAL WITH THOSE WHO DIED BEFORE THEY GET THERE. AS WELL AS THEIR OWN ILLNESSES. WE WANT TO PRAY FOR THEM. WE WANT TO PRAY FOR ALL THIS KIND OF PROTECTION FOR MANY PEOPLE. 1 OF THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING HERE IN THE DIOCESE OF BIRMINGHAM ALABAMA IS THAT AT ST. PAUL’S CATHEDRAL IN DOWNTOWN BIRMINGHAM, THERE WAS A EUCHARISTIC PROCESSION THAT TOOK PLACE AROUND THE BLOCK… A GROUP OF ABOUT 100 MEN AND BOYS FROM AN ORGANIZATION CALLED FRATERNUS . THEY ARE FATHERS AND SONS FOR THE MOST PART BUT ALSO OTHER MEN AND YOUNG MEN WHO GET TOGETHER TO GROW IN THEIR CHRISTIAN MATURITY AS MEN. THAT GROUP HAD A PENITENTIAL PROCESSION IN TIME OF MORTALITY AND EPIDEMIC. THIS IS FOUND IN THE OLD ROMAN RITUAL AND IT INCLUDES A LITANY OF THE SAINTS AND SPECIFIC PETITIONS AGAINST EPIDEMIC AND PLAGUE AND DEATH. THEY ADDED A LITANY TO ST. JOSEPH WHO IS OBVIOUSLY A VERY GREAT PATRON OF THEIRS, AND HIS FACE WILL BE CELEBRATED IN A COUPLE OF DAYS AND THEY CONCLUDED WITH BENEDICTION. OUR BISHOP, BISHOP ROBERT BAKER ASKED THAT THIS FRIDAY’S LENTEN OBSERVANCE IN THE BIRMINGHAM DIOCESE BE A DAY OF PRAYER AND FASTING FOR ALL WHO ARE SUFFERING FROM THE CORONAVIRUS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. AND THEN I WAS SPEAKING WITH MOTHER DOLORES OF THE POOR CLARES OF PERPETUAL ADORATION. MOTHER ANGELICA’S COMMUNITY UP IN HANCEVILLE, THE SHRINE. THEY ALSO HAD THE SAME KIND OF PROCESSION AGAINST PLAGUE AND DEATH. SO THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR US TO KEEP PRAYING. LET ME JUST ADD THIS ALSO. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF FOLKS, CRISIS SITUATIONS, WHETHER WAR OR EPIDEMICS AND OTHER THINGS WILL BRING OUT WHAT PEOPLE ARE LIKE AT THEIR CORE. THIS IS VERY INTERESTING BECAUSE I RECENTLY HEARD IN THE NEWS A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT BROUGHT OUT A VERY EVIL CORE FROM SOME PEOPLE. ONE PERSON IN POLITICS WAS HOPING THAT SHE WOULD HAVE THIS VIRUS SO THAT SHE COULD GO AND IN FACT THE PEOPLE ATTENDING RALLIES OF HER OPPOSITION CANDIDATE. SHE WANTED TO GO TO THE PRESIDENTIAL RALLIES. SO THAT SHE COULD INFECT PEOPLE. NOW I DO NOT THINK SHE MEANT IT. BUT IT IS A VERY CORE EVIL THING TO BRING UP. AND TO EVEN TALK ABOUT AND TO PLACE OUT THERE. OTHER PEOPLE ARE PUTTING UP THIS AS THEY CALL IT A MEME THAT THIS EPIDEMIC IS A WAY TO GET RID OF THE BABY BOOMERS. THAT IS MY GENERATION. AND OLDER. THE PRE-BABY BOOMERS. THE DEPRESSION BABIES AND WAR BABIES. THAT IS THE OPPOSITE. INSTEAD WE ALSO SEE PEOPLE WHO ARE CHECKING ON THE ELDERLY NEIGHBORS, NOT ONLY TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE OKAY BUT TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE FOOD. TO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE THEIR MEDICINE. AND OTHER NECESSITIES. AND THAT THEY CAN BE TAKEN CARE OF. THIS SHOULD BE OUR RESPONSE. ALSO IF WE ARE SEEING THAT WE ARE AT RISK OF CABIN FEVER IN ADDITION TO DOING MORE PRAYER I KNOW A LOT OF YOU AND I SAID THIS TO THE PARISH THE OTHER DAY THAT YOU KNOW A LOT OF US DID NOT GET TO THE BREAD SECTION BEFORE EVERYBODY ELSE. SO IT WAS GONE. AND WHAT WE MAY THEN THINK ABOUT HIS OWN KNOW WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITHOUT BREAD? WE MIGHT THINK WHAT AM I GOING TO DO TO LEARN HOW TO MAKE MY OWN BREAD? WHAT AM I GOING TO DO TO LEARN HOW TO COOK MORE THINGS FROM SCRATCH? WHAT AM I GOING TO DO TO LEARN RECIPES AND DO THEM WITH MY FAMILY SO THAT THIS BECOMES A TIME WHEN INSTEAD OF US BEING LOCKED IN AND SCARED ABOUT EVERYTHING WE HAVE A SENSE OF WHAT ARE THE OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE HERE AS WELL AS THE RISKS? RISKS AND OPPORTUNITIES OFTEN OCCUR SIDE BY SIDE. THAT WHICH IS INSIDE OUR HEART CAN COME OUT FOR THE GOOD TO SHOW THE GOODNESS THAT IS ALREADY OPERATIVE OR TO SHOW THE DARKNESS AND EVIL THAT IS OPERATIVE. LIKE HOARDING. USING IT AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET RICH BY HOARDING. SCAMS ARE NOT THE WAY THAT WE ARE TO THINK. BUT RATHER WHAT CAN WE DO TO SERVE CHRIST? ONE LAST THING AND WE WILL TALK MORE ABOUT TOMORROW NIGHT BUT I ALSO HAVE HEARD SOME PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT WELL IS THIS A PUNISHMENT? USUALLY, USUALLY, WHEN THEY SAY THAT THEY ARE THINKING ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE’S SINS. THIS IS A CHASTISEMENT FOR PEOPLE WHO OPT FOR SAME-SEX LIFESTYLE WHILE OTHERS SAY THIS IS A PLAGUE FOR THOSE WHO ARE HOMOPHOBIC. PEOPLE GET FOCUSED ON THE SINS OF OTHER PEOPLE. THEY SAY YES THEY SHOULD GET THIS PLAGUE. HOPEFULLY NONE OF US WILL START THINKING ABOUT HOW THIS IS THE FAULT OF OTHER PEOPLE COMMITTING SINS THAT I DO NOT COMMIT. WATCH THAT. WATCH THAT IN OURSELVES. INSTEAD OUR TASK IS TO EXAMINE OUR OWN CONSCIENCE RATHER THAN EVERYBODY ELSE’S. THAT WOULD BE MORE SENSIBLE. I THINK THAT WOULD BE A GOOD USE OF IT AT THIS TIME AND CERTAINLY A LOT BETTER THAN FOCUSING ON BLAMING ANYBODY ELSE. THAT WOULD NOT BE A GOOD SENSE. INSTEAD OUR LORD CAN SEND US THE HOLY SPIRIT WHEREVER WE ARE SO THAT HE CAN CONVICT US OF OUR OWN SINS SO THAT WE CAN CONFESS OUR OWN SINS WHEN THE OPPORTUNITY ARISES IN THE CONFESSIONALS WHEN THEY’RE OPEN AGAIN AND BE READY FOR IT. WE ARE CONTINUING ON THIS WEEK IN THE NEW BIBLE STUDY WE STARTED ON THE EUCHARIST. THIS IS OUR 3RD WEEK OF GOING THROUGH THIS. IN THE BIBLE STUDY WE ARE GOING TO BE USING MY NEW IT IS NOT NEW BUT IT IS NEW TO US HERE, IT IS CALLED THE EUCHARIST, A BIBLE STUDY FOR CATHOLICS. YOU CAN GET THAT AT THE EWTN RELIGIOUS CATALOG. . (FR. PACWA’S BOOKS) AVAILABLE FROM EWTN RELIGIOUS CATALOGUE WWW.EWTNRC.COM 1-800-854-6316 AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ORDER THAT AND FOLLOW ALONG JUST LIKE YOU DID WITH THE BOOK SAVED. WHICH WAS A BOOK WE USED WHEN WE WERE DEALING WITH THE QUESTIONS OF SALVATION. NOW, YOU CAN STILL CALL IN, WE ARE NOT HAVING ANY STUDIO AUDIENCES. THAT MAKES GOOD SENSE THAT WE DO NOT DO THAT. THERE CAN BE SOMEBODY IN THE AUDIENCE WHO HAS NO KNOWLEDGE, THIS IS 1 OF THE THINGS ALL OF US HAVE TO BE ALERT TO AND I AM SURE YOU ARE LISTENING TO THE MEDICAL EXPERTS. SOMEONE ONE CAN HAVE 0 SYMPTOMS AND BE ABLE TO PASS THEM ON TO OTHER PEOPLE. SO WE ARE NOT HAVING ANY STUDIO AUDIENCES BUT YOU CAN CALL INTO THE PROGRAM AND THE PHONE NUMBERS TO CALL. CALL IN QUESTIONS: (IN THE USA) 1-800-221-9460 THIS IS FOR OUR PROGRAM ON TUESDAYS AT 2 PM EASTERN TIME. SO IF YOU’RE WATCHING TUESDAYS AT 2 PM EASTERN TIME YOU CAN CALL IN THE SHOW. OR IF OUTSIDE THE USA, CALL 1-205-271-2980 YOU CAN ASK QUESTIONS ON THE AIR AS WELL AS SEND US QUESTIONS BY EMAIL AND SOCIAL SORRY IT IS 205 – 271 – 2980. 205-271-2980. THEN YOU CAN ASK THE QUESTION ON THE AIR OR SEND AN EMAIL OR SEND A QUESTION MY SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES AND ALL OF THAT. THAT IS ON THE SCREEN. KEEP THAT IN MIND THAT YOU CAN WATCH EWTN IF YOU DO NOT GET LIFE, TELL YOUR FRIENDS THAT YOU CAN STILL GET IT ON EWTN.COM OR ON YOUTUBE.COM/EWTN OR FACEBOOK. YOU CAN CONNECT WITH THE SHOW THERE AND FOLLOW ALONG USING AGAIN OUR BOOK THE EUCHARIST A BIBLE STUDY GUIDE FOR CATHOLICS. OKAY? ALL RIGHT. NOW HERE WE ARE DEALING WITH MORE OF CHAPTER 1. ON THE OLD TESTAMENT BACKGROUND OF THE EUCHARIST. NOW THE MOST OBVIOUS CONNECTION BETWEEN THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW TESTAMENT CELEBRATIONS AND FEASTS IS OBVIOUSLY THE CELEBRATION OF PASSOVER BECAUSE THAT IS WHEN THE GREAT EVENTS HAPPENED. BUT WE ALSO HAVE TO KEEP IN MIND YOM KIPPUR THE DAY OF ATONEMENT. THIS IS THE HOLIEST DAY OF THE JEWISH RELIGIOUS CALENDAR AND IT IS A DAY THAT IS DEDICATED TO PRAYING, FASTING AND REPENTING OF SIN. YOM KIPPUR YOM MEANS DAY AND KIPPUR MEANS ATONEMENT. YOM KIPPUR MEANS DAY AND TO COVER. AND THE SENSE OF IT IS IS THE DAY TO COVER. THIS WOULD BE THE OLD TESTAMENT UNDERSTANDING THAT THE BLOOD OF THE ANIMAL SACRIFICES WOULD COVER THE SINS AND GOD WOULD NO LONGER SEE OUR OFFENSES. NOW WE ARE GOING TO DO A COMBINATION OF LOOKING AT THE OLD TESTAMENT BACKGROUND. THERE IS ONE PASSAGE THAT DESCRIBES IT AND THAT IS LEVITICUS 16:1 – 34 AND THEN WE ARE ALSO GOING TO TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE JEWISH CUSTOMS THAT ARE MENTIONED OUTSIDE OF THE SCRIPTURE AND A BOOK CALLED THE MISHNAH AND WERE ALSO GOING TO CONNECT THIS WITH HEBREWS CHAPTER 9 WHERE WE CONNECT THE PRIESTHOOD AND SACRIFICE OF JESUS CHRIST OUR HIGH PRIEST TO THE CELEBRATION OF YOM KIPPUR . LET US TAKE A BREAK AT THIS POINT. THEN WE WILL COME BACK AND TALK ABOUT THE OLD TESTAMENT PRIESTHOOD AND TRY TO SEE SOME CONNECTIONS WITH OUR LORD’S PRIESTHOOD. PLEASE STAY WITH US. [APPLAUSE] [GUITAR THEME MUSIC] [GUITAR THEME MUSIC] [APPLAUSE] ALL RIGHT. WE STARTED TO TALK ABOUT YOM KIPPUR AND I MENTIONED THAT THERE IS A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE OR IT IS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT HOW TO CELEBRATE YOM KIPPUR IN A BOOK CALLED THE MISHNAH. THIS IS A BOOK THAT INCLUDES THE ORAL TRADITION OF THE PHARISEE SCHOOL. THE RABBINIC SCHOOL. OF THE PHARISEES. THE ORAL TRADITION GOES FROM ABOUT THE 130 BC UNTIL 200 A.D. WHEN IT WAS COLLECTED BY JUDAH THE PRINCE. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT SOURCE. WHEN YOU KEEP IN MIND THAT IN THE DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM IN AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER 19, 70 AD A LOT OF THE PRIESTS WERE KILLED AND THE TEMPLE WAS DESTROYED. THE JEWISH PEOPLE COULD NOT HOLD SACRIFICES. THEY HOPED FOR THE DAY IN WHICH THEY COULD EVENTUALLY CELEBRATE SACRIFICES BUT IN FACT THE ROMANS USED THE TEMPLE MOUNT AS A DUMP AS A GARBAGE DUMP. LATER ON THEY WERE GOING TO MAKE IT A PAGAN TEMPLE THERE WHICH WAS ACTUALLY BE EVEN MORE EVIL AS FAR AS BELIEVERS WOULD BE CONCERNED. THE RISK IS THAT AS THE PRIEST WERE KILLED OFF, THE VARIOUS CEREMONIES COULD BE FORGOTTEN SO THE RABBIS BEGAN TO WRITE DOWN THE VARIOUS TRADITIONS THEY HAD AND RECORD THIS IS HOW YOM KIPPUR WAS CELEBRATED WHEN THERE WAS A TEMPLE AND A HIGH PRIEST WHO COULD CELEBRATE THE FEAST AND THAT IS FOUND AGAIN IN THE MISHNAH. NOW THE MISHNAH HAD DIFFERENT TRACTATE’S INSTEAD OF CALLING THEM CHAPTERS THERE CALLED TRACTATE’S AND THERE IS A TRACTATE CALLED YOMA … AND IT IS A DIALECT OF ARAMAIC USED IN THAT PERIOD OF TIME WHERE IT IS GATHERED. AND THIS WAS THIS PROCESS OF REMEMBERING THESE CEREMONIES AND THE DETAILS WAS LED BY A VERY IMPORTANT RABBI. JOHANAN BEN ZAKKAI, ESCAPED AND HE HAD HIS FOLLOWERS PUT THEM INTO A CASKET AND CARRY HIM OUT AND HE WAS TRYING TO GET THROUGH LINES HE GOT OUT AND WENT TO A GENERAL AND SAID TO HIM HAIL CAESAR. HE WAS CALLING HIM THE EMPEROR. AND THE EMPEROR SAID I AM NOT CAESAR. AND THE RABBI SAID TODAY YOU ARE NOT IN THE NEXT DAY YOU WILL BE. AND THE NEXT DAY COURIERS ARRIVED ANNOUNCING THAT HE HAD BEEN ELECTED THE EMPEROR. SO AT THAT POINT HE WAS VERY IMPRESSED AT THE RABBI AND LET HIM AND HIS DISCIPLES GO. THEY PROMISE NOT TO FIGHT ANYMORE AGAINST THE ROMANS AND THEY WENT TO A PLACE CALLED JAFFA WHICH IS ON THE COAST OF ISRAEL JUST SOUND OF MODERN DAY TEL AVIV. THAT IS WHERE THEY SET UP THEIR SCHOOL AND A LOT OF THINGS WERE WRITTEN DOWN AND LATER ON THAT MATERIAL WAS COMMENTED ON FROM 200 A.D. TO 450 A.D. OF THE RABBIS COMMENTED ON THE MISHNAH WITH OTHER TRADITIONS THEY HAD TO SORT OF IT OUT AND THAT IS THE TALMUD. JUST SO YOU KNOW THE BACKGROUND. AND THEN WHAT WE DO IS TAKE A LOOK AT THE MISHNAH TRACTATE AS WELL AS LEVITICUS CHAPTER 16 WHICH IS THE BIBLICAL INSTRUCTION ON YOM KIPPUR. AND WE TRY TO LEARN FROM THAT. NOW THIS IS A FEW THINGS WE CAN LEARN. 1ST OF ALL IN THE BIBLE WE SEE THAT YOM KIPPUR IS SUPPOSED TO START ON THE 10TH DAY OF TISHRI. THAT IS THE NAME OF THE MONTH. IT USUALLY CORRESPONDS ROUGHLY WITH SEPTEMBER. ROUGHLY THE ISRAELITES USED A LUNAR CALENDAR. LUNAR CALENDARS HAVE ONLY 354 DAYS. THAT MEANS THERE ARE 11 OTHER DAYS THAT ARE LEFT OVER IN THE SOLAR CALENDAR. SO EVERY 3 YEARS OR SO THEY ADD A MONTH. IT IS VERY COMPLICATED HOW THEY FIGURED OUT THE AT 1/13 MONTH TO MAKE UP FOR THOSE DAYS. SO IT VARIES. I BELIEVE THIS YEAR YOM KIPPUR WILL BEGIN ON SEPTEMBER 27. IT IS A SUNDAY LAST UNTIL STARTS IN THE EVENING IS ON JEWISH FEAST DO START AT SUNDOWN AND CONTINUE INTO SUNDOWN OF THAT MONDAY. AND THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THINGS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN. 1ST, THE FEAST STARTS ON THE 10TH OF THAT MONTH BUT THE HIGH PRIEST WHO HAS TO LEAD THE SACRIFICE, HE IS KEY TO THIS CELEBRATION, OF RECONCILIATION AND FORGIVENESS, HE WAS REQUIRED TO COME TO THE TEMPLE ON THE 3RD OF TISHRI. HE HAD TO BE THE FOUR-WEEK PERIOD HEAD OF THE FEAST. AND HE HAD TO LEAVE HIS HOME HE CANNOT STAY AT HOME ANYMORE THERE WAS A PLACE THAT HE STAYED CALLED THE COUNSELOR’S CHAMBER. NEAR THE NEOCON GATE. OF COURSE THAT HAS BEEN DESTROYED. ANOTHER PRIEST WAS ALSO MADE AVAILABLE AND WE SEE THE SAME TRAINING AND PREPARATION IS THE HIGH PRIEST. JUST IN CASE THE HIGH PRIEST DIED BEFORE THE WEEK WAS UP. SO HE WOULD BE READY TO DIE THEN. JUST AS A SIDE POINT, WE DO SOMETHING SIMILAR. IF A PRIEST DIES DURING THE CELEBRATION OF MASS, THEN ANOTHER PRIEST HAS TO COME AND PICK UP A MASS AT THE PLACE WITH THE OTHER PRIEST LEFT OFF AND COMPLETE THE MASS. YOU DO NOT JUST LEAVE IT UNFINISHED. WE FOLLOW THAT JEWISH MENTALITY THAT SAYS THE SACRIFICE MUST BE COMPLETE. AND SO ANOTHER PRIEST WILL BE EXPECTED TO COME AND FINISH OFF THE MASS FROM THAT POINT. SOMETHING ELSE THAT HAPPENED IS THAT YOU KNOW THERE WOULD BE A NECESSITY OF THE HIGH PRIEST TO BE MARRIED. THIS WAS REQUIRED. AND SO IF HIS WIFE DIED IN THAT TIME BEFORE OR DURING YOM KIPPUR THAT WOULD ALSO HAVE ANOTHER WOMAN READY FOR HIM TO MARRY SO THAT HE COULD CONTINUE ON TO HAVE A FAMILY BECAUSE AS IT SAYS IN LEVITICUS CHAPTER 16 VERSE 6 AND I QUOTE, AARON SHALL OFFER THESE OFFERING SO THE PRIEST HAS TO HAVE A FAMILY BECAUSE HE IS MAKING ATONEMENT FOR HIS FAMILY AND THAT IS WHAT THEY MEAN BY THAT. AND THIS WOULD BE SOMETHING THERE. NOW WHEN HE WAS IN THE TEMPLE THE HIGH PRIEST WOULD BE REQUIRED TO MAKE OR TO PARTICIPATE IN THE DAILY SACRIFICE EVERY DAY AS WE SEE IN EXODUS 29:38. YOU SHALL OFFER ON THE ALTAR TO LAMBS EACH DAY REGULARLY AND ALSO THEY HAD HELP WITH BURNING THE INCENSE AS IN LEVITICUS 30:1 THROUGH 8 IN TRIMMING THE LAMPS AS IN EXODUS 27. IT WAS OPTIONAL FOR HIM TO DO THAT ON THE OTHER DATES BUT ON THESE DATES AS IT SAYS IN EXODUS 30:1 YOU SHALL MAKE AN ALTAR ON WHICH TO OFFER INCENSE. AND WERE ASKED TO DO THAT. I WILL NOT DESCRIBE THE ALTAR BUT HE HAS TO DO THAT. NOW WHAT LINK IS THERE BETWEEN THESE PREPARATIONS AND JESUS CHRIST? THIS IS A VERY INTERESTING ONE. LET ME MENTION THEM. 1ST OF ALL THE PREPARATION OF THE 2ND CANDIDATE AS THE HIGH PRIEST IN CASE SOMETHING HAPPENED TO THE APPOINTED PRIEST BRINGS OUT SOMETHING THAT IS MENTIONED IN HEBREWS 7:23. IT SAYS THE FORMER PRIEST WERE MANY IN NUMBER BECAUSE THEY WERE PREVENTED BY DEATH FROM CONTINUING IN OFFICE. BUT JESUS HOLDS HIS PRIESTHOOD PERMANENTLY BECAUSE HE CONTINUES FOREVER. SO CHRIST DID NOT PREPARE A HIGH PRIEST TO TAKE HIS PLACE IN CASE HE DIED BEFORE GOOD FRIDAY. OKAY? HE DID NOT NEED AN ALTERNATE PRIEST. HE WAS GOD THE SON. HE’S ETERNAL. HE WILL HOLD HIS PRIESTHOOD FOR EVER. AND YOU SEE THAT IN HEBREWS CHAPTER 7:15. IT SAYS IT IS EVEN MORE OBVIOUS WHEN ANOTHER PRIEST ARISES RESEMBLING MELCHIZEDEK ONE WHO HAD BECOME A PRIEST NOT THROUGH A LEGAL REQUIREMENT CONCERNING PHYSICAL DESCENT BECAUSE THE JEWISH PRIEST HAD TO BELONG TO THE COIN FAMILY. JESUS DID NOT. BUT RATHER THROUGH THE POWER OF AN INDESTRUCTIBLE LIFE. FOR IT IS ATTESTED OF JESUS FOR YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER ACCORDING TO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK. THIS IS A QUOTATION FROM PSALM 110. AND THAT’S VERSE 4. THERE IS A LOT OF REFERENCES TO PSALM 110 IN HEBREWS. IN VERSE 1 IT SAYS A NUMBER OF TIMES THE LORD SAID TO MY LORD SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND. ALL OF THE DISCUSSION OF SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER ALL OF THAT COMES FROM PSALM 110:1. HEBREWS 1:3, 13, 10:12 – 13 AND OTHERS. SO AS WELL AS IN THE CREED. PSALM 110 VERSE 4 IS CITED A NUMBER OF TIMES. AND THE POINT THAT HEBREWS IS MAKING IS THIS, IN HEBREWS CHAPTER 7:22 THROUGH 28 IT IS VERY CLEAR. THAT JESUS THAT JESUS THE SURETY OF A BETTER COVENANT THE FORMER PRIEST WERE MANY IN NUMBER BECAUSE THEY WERE PREVENTED BY DEATH FROM CONTINUING IN OFFICE. BUT JESUS HOLDS HIS PRIESTHOOD PERMANENTLY BECAUSE HE CONTINUES FOREVER. HE IS GOD. CONSEQUENTLY HE IS ABLE FOR ALL TIME TO SAVE THOSE WHO APPROACH GOD THROUGH HIM. SINCE HE ALWAYS LIVES TO MAKE INTERCESSION FOR THEM. FOR IT WAS FITTING THAT WE SHOULD HAVE SUCH A HIGH PRIEST, HOLY, BLAMELESS, UNDEFILED, SEPARATED FROM SINNERS AND EXALTED ABOVE THE HEAVENS. UNLIKE THE OTHER PRIEST. HE HAS NO NEED TO OFFER SACRIFICES DAILY FOR HIS OWN SINS AND THEN THOSE OF THE PEOPLE. THIS HE DID ONCE FOR ALL WHEN HE OFFERED HIMSELF. FOR THE LAW APPOINTS AS HIGH PRIEST THOSE WHO ARE SUBJECT TO WEAKNESS BUT THE WORD OF THE OATH WHICH CAME LATER THAN THE LAW APPOINTS A SON WHO HAS BEEN MADE PERFECT FOREVER. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT PARALLEL AND DISTINCTION. JESUS DOES NOT END HE DOES NOT DIE PERMANENTLY. HE RISES FROM THE DEAD. THEREFORE HIS PRIESTHOOD IS ETERNAL. WE’RE GOING TO TALK A LOT MORE ABOUT THAT BUT I REALLY WANT TO GET TO SOME OF YOUR PHONE CALLS SO LET US GO NOW TO MELISSA. ARE YOU CALLING FROM? MELISSA? SHE IS NOT GETTING THROUGH. THERE YOU ARE. WHERE YOU CALLING FROM>>KANSAS. (PACWA) I LIKE THAT TOWN. I AM FINE. WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU TODAY?>>A TWO-PART QUESTION. THE 1ST PART IS WHEN WE GO TO COMMUNION WE DO GET THE HOST IN OUR HAND BUT I HEARD SOME PEOPLE COMPLAINING WE SHOULD NOT GET THAT ON OUR TONGUE BUT WITH EVERYTHING GOING ON IS THAT OKAY IF WE DO NOT GO TO COMMUNION BECAUSE OF EVERYTHING GOING ON? IS THAT ACCEPTABLE (PACWA) YES. IT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT IF YOU HAVE A SENSE THAT THERE IS A RISK FACTOR IN YOU GOING TO COMMUNION, I THINK I KNOW THAT A LOT OF PRIESTS AND EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS BEING VERY VERY CAREFUL TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY TAKE THINGS TO WASH THEIR HANDS, NOT ONLY WASH THEIR HANDS WITH SOAP AND WATER BUT OFTEN TIMES RIGHT BEFORE DISTRIBUTING HOLY COMMUNION BUT THE PROBLEM IS THE PRIEST AS HE DISTRIBUTES THE BODY OF CHRIST CAN ALSO END UP TOUCHING THE HANDS OF SOMEBODY WHO IS INFECTED AND IF YOU HAVE HIGH RISK PEOPLE AROUND YOU, THEN THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN DO. YOU CAN STILL AND HERE’S 1 OF THE THINGS YOU CAN DO IF YOU CANNOT, IF YOU THINK THE RISK OF GETTING THE VIRUS OR PASSING IT ON TO RISKY PEOPLE IN YOUR HOME, IS VERY GREAT THEN WHAT YOU CAN DO IS REFRAIN FROM RECEIVING HOLY COMMUNION BUT MAKE AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION. THE SAME THING IS TRUE FOR ANYBODY WHO WATCHES OUR MASS BROADCAST ON TELEVISION. WHEN WE BROADCAST THE HOLY MASS WE MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT AND 1 OF THE SISTERS READS THE PRAYER TO MAKE AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION. WERE YOU ASKED OUR LORD TO SPIRITUALLY COME TO YOU. AND IF YOU ARE VERY CLEAR THAT THIS SHOULD BE SOMETHING THAT YOU REFRAINED FROM BECAUSE OF NOT WANTING TO SPREAD THE RISK OF THE VIRUS TO OTHERS THAT IS FINE. AND YOU FAST AND ABSTAIN FROM HOLY COMMUNION UNTIL IT IS SAFE. AND IT WILL BE SAFE AGAIN. AGAIN THIS IS 1 OF THE COOLEST THINGS ABOUT THE WAY THAT GOD MADE US. WE LEARN TO BUILD UP IMMUNITY. THERE HAVE BEEN ALL KINDS OF PREVIOUS VIRUSES AND BACTERIA AND PLAGUES THAT HAVE COME TO THE WORLD AND NOT ONLY DOES OUR BODY BUILD UP IMMUNITY, WHEN SOME OF THESE ARE SO OVERWHELMING THAT EVEN WITH IMMUNITIES IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO PROTECT THE PERSON, GOD IS ALSO GIVEN US THE WONDERS OF A GREAT MIND TO LEARN MEDICINE. THERE ALWAYS LEARNING MORE ABOUT MEDICINE THAT IS THE NATURE OF ALL SCIENCE. YOU KEEP LEARNING MORE. BUT WE ARE ABLE TO HAVE THIS IMMUNITY BUILD UP AND WE LEARN HOW TO MAKE VARIOUS MEDICINES THAT PROTECT US AND THEY ARE ALREADY STARTING THE TRIALS AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE ENCOURAGING, THEY ARE STARTING TRIALS ON HUMAN BEINGS AS WELL AS ANIMALS FOR THIS VIRUS. I THINK IT WAS BEGUN YESTERDAY IS WHAT I HEARD FROM A DOCTOR. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS A POSITIVE SIGN. IT IS VERY FAST. BUT WE ALL WORK TOGETHER ON TRYING TO HELP EACH OTHER. AT THAT IS WHY I AM NOT BIG ON EVERYBODY SAYING WHILE IT IS ALL THEIR FAULT THE POLITICIANS ARE NOT DOING ENOUGH THE DOCTORS DO NOT DO ENOUGH. THE SCIENTISTS ARE NOT DOING ENOUGH. AND BLAMES EVERYBODY ELSE. THAT IS LIKE BLAMING EVERYBODY ELSE. THIS CHASTISEMENT BECAUSE OF THOSE SINS THAT I DO NOT COMMIT. LET US CUT THAT STUFF OUT AND FOCUS ON WHAT I CAN DO TO HELP AND IN YOUR CASE TO PROTECT PEOPLE AND THAT MEANS REFRAINING FROM COMMUNION THEN REFRAIN FROM COMMUNION. WE’RE GOING TO TAKE A BREAK AND WE WILL BE BACK WITH MORE OF YOUR QUESTIONS SO PLEASE STAY WITH US. [APPLAUSE] [GUITAR THEME MUSIC] [GUITAR THEME MUSIC] [APPLAUSE] ALL RIGHT. WE HAVE YET ANOTHER PHONE CALL. HELLO MARIANNE.>>HOW ARE YOU? I AM FROM LONG ISLAND NEW YORK. (PACWA) WHAT IS YOUR WE ENCOURAGE OUR AUDIENCE, THAT IS 1 OF THE PLACES WITH WASHINGTON AND CALIFORNIA THAT HAS A VERY HIGH RATE. SO WE KEEP YOU IN SPECIAL PRAYER. WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU TODAY?>>I HAVE A TWO-PART QUESTION. NOW ALL THE CHURCHES ON LONG ISLAND ARE CLOSED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS. PEOPLE WILL NOT BE RECEIVING THE EUCHARIST. WHAT HAPPENS TO THE WORLD WHEN NOBODY IS RECEIVING THE EUCHARIST IN THE WORLD? AND THE 2ND QUESTION IS SOMEONE TOLD ME THAT DURING THE MASS PRAISE AND WORSHIP IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE EUCHARIST THAT THE EUCHARIST IS THE 2ND MOST IMPORTANT. CAN YOU COMMENT ON THAT? (PACWA) WHAT DID THEY COME UP WITH THAT IDEA? NO. IT IS THE EUCHARIST THAT AGAIN, LEST THEY ACCUSE YOU OR ME BEING SOME OLD FASHION CATHOLIC IN THE VATICAN COUNCIL, SACROSANCTUM CONCILIUM THE DOCUMENT ON THE CONSTITUTION ON THE LITURGY IT SAYS VERY CLEARLY AND EXPLICITLY THE EUCHARIST IS THE SOURCE AND THE SUMMIT OF OUR FAITH. SO THE WORD IS OF ANOTHER SOURCE OF NOURISHMENT AND IN VATICAN II IT MAKES IT CLEAR AT MASS THERE ARE 2 TABLES. THE PULPIT IS THE TABLE OF THE WORD OF GOD BECAUSE AS THE LORD SAID TO MOSES IN DEUTERONOMY CHAPTER 8:3, MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT COMES FROM THE MOUTH OF GOD. THAT VERSE IS ALSO CITED BY OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST IN REFUTING SATAN ABOUT CHANGING ROCKS INTO BREAD. WE NEED THE WORD OF GOD. IN NO WAY DO I WANT TO DENIGRATE THE WORD OF GOD. HOWEVER IT IS THE VERY BODY OF CHRIST HIMSELF, BODY BLOOD SOUL AND DIVINITY AND IT IS 1 OF THE REASONS THAT I’M GOING THROUGH THIS COURSE ON THE EUCHARIST SO THAT WE CAN HAVE A RICHER UNDERSTANDING OF THE MEANING OF THE EUCHARIST AND ITS REALITY AND WE DO NOT HAVE SOME SUPERFICIAL DOCTRINE. THERE I DO NOT MEAN THAT AS A WAY TO BLAME YOUR FRIEND BUT THERE HAS BEEN VERY POOR CATECHESIS ABOUT THE EUCHARIST OVER THE LAST 50 YEARS. AND YOUR FRIEND MAY WELL BE REPRESENTING WHAT HAD BEEN SAID TO HER. SHE COULD EASILY HAVE HEARD THIS FROM TEACHERS AND SOMETIMES PRIEST AND RELIGIOUS HAVE SAID THESE KINDS OF THINGS. SOME OF THEM SAY THAT PRIESTHOOD IS NOT IMPORTANT THAT THE EUCHARIST IS NOT IMPORTANT. IT IS ALL ABOUT US. NO. IN THIS TIME I ASSURE YOU MASS WILL CONTINUE TO BE CELEBRATED. EVEN THOUGH I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CELEBRATE AS OFTEN IN PUBLIC. YOU KNOW THAT I AND THE OTHER PRIESTS HERE AND OTHER PRIESTS ALL AROUND THE WORLD WHERE THERE IS INFECTION WHO MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CELEBRATE MASS PUBLICLY WILL CONTINUE TO CELEBRATE MASS PRIVATELY. I INTEND TO CONTINUE THAT AND I AM SURE THE VAST MAJORITY OF MY BROTHER PRIESTS PLAN TO DO THE SAME. AND ON THE ONE HAND EVEN WHEN WE CELEBRATE A MASS PRIVATELY WE ARE DOING SO WITH THE COMMUNION OF SAINTS AND WITH THE WHOLE CHURCH. WE EVEN SAY THAT IN THE EUCHARISTIC PRAYERS. IN UNION WITH THE WHOLE CHURCH. EVEN THOUGH PEOPLE CANNOT BE THERE BECAUSE OF THIS EPIDEMIC WE WILL CONTINUE TO OFFER MASS AND THAT REALITY WILL STILL BE THERE AND THIS REALITY MUST CONTINUE FOR EVERYBODY ELSE AS I SAID TO THE LAST CALLER, MAKE AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION. ASK OUR LORD TO COME INTO YOUR HEART. THIS WOULD BE A VERY IMPORTANT KIND OF PRAYER RIGHT NOW AND LET THIS BE A TIME THAT INCREASES OUR LONGING TO RECEIVE THE LORD IN THE BLESSED SACRAMENT. WE HAVE HAD CATHOLICS WHO HAVE NOT BEEN GOING TO MASS, ONLY ABOUT 30% OR SO GO TO WEEKLY MASS ANYWAY AND THIS MAY BE SOMETHING WHERE WE CAN LEARN TO EXPERIENCE THAT LONGING AND ENOURAGE MORE PEOPLE TO COME AND CELEBRATE HOPEFULLY AND HOPEFULLY THINGS WILL BE SAFE ENOUGH ON APRIL 14. SO THAT WE CAN CELEBRATE EASTER TOGETHER. OKAY? AGAIN HERE’S THE OTHER THING ALSO. THINK ABOUT THE MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE IN PERSECUTION AREAS AND CANNOT GET THE EUCHARIST EITHER. THINK ABOUT THE WAY THE CHINESE, THE MADE AN AGREEMENT WITH THE POPE AND WITH THEIR DUPLICITOUSNESS HAVE BEEN SHUTTING DOWN CHURCHES AND TEARING THEM DOWN AND ARRESTING THE PRIESTS AND ARRESTING THE LAYPEOPLE AND ALSO DOING THE SAME THING TO THE POOR MUSLIMS. THEY ARE ROUNDING UP I THINK HALF A MILLION AND A MILLION MUSLIMS HAVE BEEN PUT IN THE CONCENTRATION CAMPS AND THEIR ARRESTING CATHOLICS. SO WE CAN JOIN OURSELVES WITH OUR MOTHERS AND SISTERS WHO ARE BEING PERSECUTED FOR THE CATHOLIC FAITH AS WELL AS THE PEOPLE PERSECUTED FOR THE FACE. PRAY FOR THEM ALSO. WE HAVE ANOTHER PHONE CALL. HELLO LINDA. WHERE YOU CALLING FROM?>>NEW YORK (PACWA) WHAT IS YOUR QUESTION?>>AS YOU KNOW I MASSES HAVE STOPPED. THE CHURCHES REMAIN OPEN. I WONDER WHAT ARE THE CHANCES THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO CELEBRATE THE SACRAMENTS LIKE GOING TO CONFESSION? (PACWA) I THINK IT WILL HAVE TO BE DONE ON A SITUATION TO SITUATION BASIS. 1 OF THE THINGS THE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS ARE VERY MUCH CAREFUL TO DO IS TO SAY THAT THERE NEEDS TO BE A 6 FOOT SPACE AROUND INDIVIDUALS BECAUSE THAT IS A PROXIMATELY THE AMOUNT OF SPACE THAT THIS VIRUS CAN JUMP. WHEN WE SPEAK WE USUALLY HAVE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF SPRAY COMING OUT OF OUR MOUTH WITH OUR BREATH. THAT IS JUST HUMAN SPEECH. AND OTHER ANIMALS ALSO. I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT THE REPTILES. BUT THE REST OF THE ANIMALS THE MAMMALS ALL DO THAT. IF IT IS A CROCODILE THAT WOULD TRY TO SPIT YOU. OR SNAKES. BUT THAT IS DIFFERENT. IN THAT CASE WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT IF YOU GO TO CONFESSION THAT YOU HAVE THAT KIND OF DISTANCE SO THAT NEITHER THE PRIEST CAN GIVE IT TO YOU NOR HE WOULD GET IT SO YOU MIGHT HAVE TO WORK OUT SOMETHING WHERE YOU CAN HAVE CONFESSION AND PRIVACY AND PERSONAL DISTANCE. OKAY? ALL RIGHT. WE HAVE JEAN ON THE LINE? IS JEAN THERE? JEAN? WHAT WHERE YOU CALLING FROM?>>VIRGINIA (PACWA) WHAT IS YOUR QUESTION?>>YOU TALK ABOUT BEING A PRIEST FOREVER ACCORDING TO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK, IF A PERSON LEFT THE PRIESTHOOD AND MARRIED IS HE STILL ALLOWED TO HEAR CONFESSIONS? (PACWA) THAT IS A VERY GOOD QUESTION. HE IS STILL A PRIEST FOREVER. AND THE CHARACTER OF PRIESTHOOD STAYS IN THE SOUL FOR ALL ETERNITY. NOT JUST DURING THIS LIFETIME. SO IN THE CASE OF AN EMERGENCY, THE PRIEST WHO NO LONGER HAS THE THE THE HE NO LONGER HAS THE FACULTIES OR PERMISSION TO CELEBRATE MASS BECAUSE HE IS MARRIED AND SUCH OR TO DO THE SACRAMENTS, IN AN EMERGENCY HE CAN ANOINT THE DYING OR HEAR A CONFESSION OR BAPTIZED IN AN EMERGENCY. ANYBODY CAN BAPTIZE IN AN EMERGENCY. SO THAT IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT THAT HE COULD DO. HE KNOWS IT. HE IS TOLD THAT. I KNEW ONE FORMER PRIEST WHO LEFT THE MINISTRY WHO THE ANOINTING OILS WITH HIM IN HIS VEHICLE SO THAT IN CASE HE DID COME UPON AN EMERGENCY HE WOULD BE PREPARED. THAT IS SOMETHING THEY CAN DO. BUT THAT IS ONLY IN AN EMERGENCY. THERE WERE A GROUP OF PRIEST IN TEXAS WHO HAD LEFT THE PRIESTHOOD AND NO LONGER HAD FACULTIES AND WERE SETTING UP THEIR OWN CHURCH. THAT IS A GRAVE SIN. THAT IS A SCHISM IF NOT HERESY. THAT WOULD BE A VERY GRAVE SIN. AND WE MAY NOT GO TO SUCH MASSES. TO SUCH PEOPLE. BUT EMERGENCIES THAT IS OKAY. NOW LET ME REMIND YOU. I HAVE HINTED AT IT ALREADY. EVEN THOUGH MASS IS CANCELED ALL OVER THE COUNTRY FOR WHOLE DIOCESES. FOR LARGE DIOCESES. LET YOUR FRIENDS KNOW THAT WE ARE GOING TO STILL HAVE DAILY MASS BROADCAST HERE AT EWTN. IT IS LIFE AT 8 AM EASTERN TIME AND REPEATED AT NOON AND OTHER TIMES EASTERN TIME. WE ALSO HAVE THE ROSARY ON EVERY DAY AT DIFFERENT TIMES AND YOU CAN GO TO YOUTUBE AND WATCH IT ANYTIME YOU WANT ON DEMAND. I URGE YOU, WITH YOUR FAMILIES IF YOU ARE ON LOCKDOWN AND A HOUSE IN THAT KIND OF STUFF, 1 OF THE THINGS YOU REALLY CAN CONSIDER DOING IS AS A FAMILY TURN ON THE TV AND EVERYBODY IN YOUR FAMILY PRAY THE ROSARY WITH US. JOIN MOTHER ANGELICA OR THE ROSARY I MADE IN THE MORNING OR 1 OF THE OTHERS DURING THE LATE MORNING OR THE AFTERNOON. PRAY THE ROSARY. PRAY FOR THE VICTIMS. A GROUP OF FRIENDS OF MINE ARE DOING 1 MILLION HAIL MARYS. THEY’RE GETTING PEOPLE ON BY PHONE CONTACT. I TOLD THEM I WOULD ASK YOU TO SAY A HAIL MARY FOR THE VICTIMS AT LEAST ONE TIME A DAY AND DO IT THAT WAY AND I GET THEM MANY MIGHT MORE THAN 10. NOW I AM OUT OF TIME. MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU. THE FATHER AND THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT. AGAIN CONTINUE TO HELP US FINANCIALLY. THIS GOING TO BE TOUGH FOR ALL OF US. WE APPRECIATE YOUR HELP. THANK YOU.

    The Rosary, The Crown, The Corona. The Crown of the Blessed Mother. Say The Corona for Pestilence to pass you by. A hundred years past the Fatima Apparitions and the Spanish Flu. No reason to think She is not on top of this too and waiting for prayer.

    If this whole thing does not result in somewhat Lessening of this extreme materialism that had been going in the world and/ or people don’t become little more decent ( which doesn’t look like ) Gd will send mankind bigger and more painful plagues.It’s in all the recent Marian apparitions and messages .

    There are at this point at least 5 online masses available daily. Take the time to attend one with full attention.

    I think, when this is over, more people will go to confession, and our churches will be full. We will have more Protestants converting, because they'll know the importance of confessing your sins aloud.
