A Message From our Pastor

Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world! These words are from John the Baptist and what he  exclaimed to his disciples as he pointed out to them the Christ. I, as a priest, have the honor of echoing these words of John the Baptist at every Mass as just before we come forward for communion and these words are said: Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb. As we continue through Ordinary Time, it is a great opportunity for us to remember and to contemplate that we truly are blessed because we have been called to this Eucharist and to a living relationship with our Lord.

On this same note, our Bishop is asking all of the parishes in the diocese to reevaluate the procedures that are in place concerning how the  Eucharist is brought to the homebound after Mass. He is encouraging us to ensure that the Eucharist is always safeguarded and treated with the utmost reverence. After reviewing the procedures here at Assumption, it was decided that the EM (Extraordinary Ministers of Communion) should not be placing the consecrated host into a pix during the communion procession, but after Mass those who are going to minister to the homebound can gather near the tabernacle to receive the host and then immediately go to the homebound. I will be talking about this for the next few weeks as we all familiarize ourselves with these new procedures. We are given this great gift of participating in the supper of the Lamb and receiving the bread of life. It is good to reflect on this gift and ensure it is treated with great reverence.

Fr. Tony
