Coronavirus Update

My Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

    Throughout the History of Mankind, in particular during the Old Testament, God, at times, had chosen to discipline His children; to help them find their knees if you will. Often times through famine, wars or plagues. We saw this play out with Moses in the desert, Joseph & his brothers, as well as the Assyrian & Babylonian overtaking of Israel’s 12 tribes. Today, we are faced with a current day plague, or at the very least an anxiety filled reaction to such. And as such, there is no greater role model for us to emulate, during these penitential times, than Mother Teresa. She taught us that during ‘Dark times’, we need to carry our cross - without complaining! That the sufferings we must endure by not being able to attend the Mass of our choosing, obtain the Sacraments when we prefer, or have immediate access to Christ – is nothing short of, Redemptive Suffering.  This is the time for us to show that we are no longer Neutral… that we are Directional in our efforts to grow closer to Christ… to be the next Simon of Cyrene and forever have our names in the Book of Life – Persevere!

   There are going to be times in our lives when we may experience some bit of doubt, like now!  Yet her response was directional, committed and never neutral…. “Lord, I believe, help my unbelief”! 

 

Sunday Mass will be at 9am.

Please attend our Sunday Mass by joining us her on the Website or on our facebook page at Saint Helena Church Amite, La.

 

**The Sunday Mass obligation continues to be dispensed for all Catholics as long as this threat persists.
