This year’s influenza virus is the most widespread outbreak since public health authorities began keeping track more than a dozen years ago. To help protect the health of all, the Cardinal directs the following for the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy and for flu prevention:
The distribution of the Precious Blood is suspended.
The exchange of the Sign of Peace should be offered without any physical contact.
Please remember that those who are ill or suspect that they may be ill with a contagious illness are not bound by the Sunday Mass obligation.
A Holy Hour for Life will be held as part of the Archdiocesan observance of the National Day of Prayer and Penance. Led by Fr. Laughlin, we will pray together for those who have been wounded by abortion, for respect for the dignity of human life from conception to natural death, and that those who govern us may be guided by justice, truth, and a love for the gift of life. The Holy Hour for Life is organized by Boston Deacons for Life in collaboration with the Pro Life Office of the Archdiocese of Boston. Please join us, all are welcome.
Before I leave for the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius and am out of touch until the beginning of February, I wanted to reflect on the vows of poverty and obedience that all those in religious life are called to take. Ad maiorem Dei gloriam! Chris Holownia, n.S.J.
