Hello to all.
It is summer with lots going on. I hope your events of the summer are going well.
Our upcoming readings are 1 Kings 19: 15-16, 19-21; psalm 16; Galatians 5: 19-25 and Luke 9: 51-62. The Hebrew scripture is the account of Elijah handing his prophetic mantle on to Elisha, the second reading outlines for us the fruit of the Spirit and the gospel has several pithy sayings of Jesus.
(I will give the reading for the next weekend also (July 2,3) because I will not be available to do Friar's Footnotes next week.) They are Isaiah 66: 10-16; psalm 66; Galatians 6: 12-18 and Luke 10: 1-3, 17-20.
Chapel happenings for this week are noon Eucharist on Tuesday and Thursday (June 21 and 23), Wednesday evening prayer at 5 pm (June 22).
NOTE WELL: NO Eucharist or evening prayer the next week (June 27 on) as I (with my sister Carol and brother Mark) will be with my brother Ray (who had the aortic dissection with a stroke over a year ago). I would love your prayers as we are together.
On Saturday July 2nd, at 5 pm, at the chapel there will be Evening Prayer with reserved Holy Communion. (So don't stay away from church just because I won't be able to be with you.)
For the celebration of Transitus, Fr. David tells me that he has the Holy Spirit chapel and our rooms already booked. So make sure to mark calendars for October 2,3, and 4.
I will be back for noon Eucharist on July 5 and 7.
I believe that is all I have. Many blessing to all as we approach the 4th of July.
Love to all,
Fr. John OFP
