  • Can't go to Confession during the Coronavirus? Pope Francis has a suggestion...

    Speaking from his private chapel at the Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis offered a suggestion for how those affected by the Coronavirus can make peace with the Lord. “Do what the Catechism says,” the Pope stressed, “it’s very clear: if you don’t find a priest to hear your Confession, talk with God, He is your Father, and tell Him the truth: ‘Lord, I’ve done this, and that, and that . . . I’m sorry,” and ask Him for forgiveness with all your heart, with the Act of Contrition and promise Him: “Afterwards I will go to Confession, but forgive me now.”

  •      Daily Reflection from 
          St. Michael's Church

    Lunes, June 29th, 2020

    Dear Brothers and Sisters,

    Today's Readings are listed on the side bar

    Happy Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul!! "All good things must come to an end". I am sorry that this is my last "daily reflection" - I am "more sorry" that this is my last day as pastor of St. Michael's. I have attached a "Goodbye" & "Thank You" letter - just in case you didn't see it on our Website. May God continue to Bless all of you, your families and St. Michael's Parish!!

    God certainly "works in mysterious ways" and, as I mentioned yesterday, I am experiencing God's mysterious providence in my last days as pastor of St. Michael's. On the day that I said my "first Mass" as a priest, June 29th (1997), I end up celebrating my "first Mass with people" since March 15tth (I think it is 105 days) and my "last Mass" as pastor of St. Michael's. The Feast we celebrate today, of Sts. Peter and Paul, takes us right back to the beginning of the Church and reminds us that we are all called to be part of God's plan of salvation. Peter and Paul were far from "perfect". They were human beings with weaknesses and faults, like us, but they gave everything to Jesus. For one "last time" in these daily reflections, I invite and encourage you to meditate upon and pray with the Readings that the Church gives to us for this Feast. Because time is (literally) running out for me, as I try to be ready the leave this afternoon, instead of a lengthy reflection on the beautiful Scripture Readings, I will leave you with this: Jesus continues to ask each of us, "Who do you say that I am?" Let us continue to pray for each other, that we may each have the grace and Faith to respond, day by day, with Peter (& Paul), "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God".  Again, I pray that God will continue to Bless you and your families and the parish of St. Michael. Please keep me in your prayers, as I begin my journey to and in Paterson, NJ.

    Fr. Kevin
