Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians has often been used as an argument for the superiority of a celibate life. But Paul’s focus was really on pleasing the Lord who would be returning very soon. What your state in life was – single, married, rich, poor, free, or slave – was of little importance. What mattered was how you were living your life. Sharing what you had, encouraging others, and treating everyone with love and respect are the things that really matter. In that way, you would be ready when the Lord returned. Doing God’s will should be our goal and any distractions should be unwelcome. What keeps you from focusing on the Lord? Consider how you could make your life become more pleasing to God.
Come, let us bow down in worship; let us kneel before the Lord. – PSALM 95:6
[S.T. Productions-Weekly Reflections-Vol. 1, Author Sue Pellant]
CURRENT MASS PROTOCOLS CONTINUE: Per Diocesan policy in accordance with current public health recommendations, the people (except liturgical ministers serving in the sanctuary) must wear cloth face masks upon entering the church until they depart. Masks will remain on the face throughout the whole Mass except while receiving communion. Saint Christopher will offer Mass for up to 28 persons at each Mass, with seating at six-foot distances required. Groups of 4 or more worshippers are asked to arrive at least 20 minutes before Mass begins, to be seated per distancing protocols. Any Mass that you attend during the week will satisfy your Sunday obligation. As always, the greatest concern is for each person’s health and safety, thus it is up to each person to make the decision that is best for them and the community. Please consult our website or call the parish office with any questions. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
