I cannot believe that we are still impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic as we approach the 2021 Easter celebrations. It seems as if we were on a prolonged Lenten journey, one that makes abundantly clear the fragility of our world. Thus, the imperative to “repent, and believe in the Gospel” and “remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return” remains vitally important for us.
Summer has officially started and for many of us—children included—it is a time to break from the mundane activities of school and work in order to recharge our energy and to refresh our spirit. It is normally a time for vacations, beach outings, summer camps, and poolside BBQs.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
I am happy to inform you that we are ready to reopen our church for public Masses beginning the weekend of June 13-14 on the Solemnity of Corpus Christi!
GARDEN GROVE, CALIF., (May 22, 2020) – The Diocese of Orange announced today that public masses can begin in Orange County on the solemnity of Corpus Christi, Sunday, June 14 (including Saturday June 13 Vigil Masses) in a phased-in approach with measures in place to safeguard public health.
Saint Irenaeus, one of the Fathers of the Church, fought against heresy, supported the Papacy, and even helped define Matthew, Mark, Luke and John as the four Gospels. He was born probably about 125 to Christian parents living in Smynra, Asia, which is now Izmir in Turkey, an area that was home to many Christians.
