FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: The front cover of the bulletin has a medieval rendering of the prophet Ezekiel and the vision he had (Ez 1:4-28). Ezekiel was thirty years old at the time of his call and while he was living in the Babylon exile. The Babylonian captivity developed in three phases. First, Nebuchadnezzar II of Babylon captured some of the leaders of Judah after he seized control of the Holy Land from Egypt in 605 BC. Several years later, he exiled King Jehoiachin and most skilled leaders of Judah in 598/597 BC as a punishment for Judah’s revolt under the reign of Jehoiakim. Finally, Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem in 586 BC and took into exile all the Judahites except for members of the lower class. A priest and the son of Buzi, Ezekiel was part of the second group of people that Nebuchadnezzar took from Judah to Babylon.

God’s appearance to Ezekiel in Babylon revealed His uniqueness. Most ancient Near Eastern peoples believed a god was limited in his control to one land and people. By coming to Ezekiel in Babylon, the Lord of Israel showed how different He is from other deities. Unlike false gods, the true God is not bound by time or space.

As we go on vacations and trips this summer, let us not limit God to our city only, but let us keep and nourish that relationship all the time – no matter where we are. Catholic churches can be found all over the world.

TIME AWAY: I will be away from the parish and will be back on 26th. There will not be weekday Masses until the 29th and substitute priests will be covering the weekend Masses. If there is an emergency, please call your closest, neighboring parish. If there are funerals, please email me at and I will try to arrange for a priest. I keep you all in my prayers.

TEMPORARY MASS SCHEDULE CHANGES: I just wanted to let you know that on Sunday July 14 and 21 there will not be a 9AM English Mass. Likewise, on weekdays from July 10-25 we will not have a 9AM Mass.

JULY – A MONTH OF PRECIOUS BLOOD: The veneration of the Precious Blood teaches us to honor the blood sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ. Let us honor the fact that He loved us so much – to the point of shedding his blood and sacrificing His life for us. We are able to truly appreciate this great love only when we accept the offer of Jesus’ friendship by living authentic, prayerful Christian lives. Let the month of July be a good occasion to place the Blood of Jesus at the center of our veneration. The Litany to the Precious Blood of Jesus is a very appropriate prayer for this purpose.

SAINT BENEDICT: On 11 July we celebrate the father of Western monasticism, Abbot Saint Benedict, one of the most influential figures in shaping the face of Christian Europe. He died in 547. Pope Paul VI made him the patron saint of Europe. His Rule is still followed by thousands of people, Benedictine monks, Cistercians, etc. Prayer and work (Ora et labora), contemplation and activity together give balance to the life of the Church.
