   Dear Parishioners,

            Along with many Bishops of our country, Fr. Bob urges you to see the movie “Old Fashioned.”

            It is a sweet story with many valuable lessons in committed marital love and sexuality.

            He also urges us strongly as possible that you and your family avoid the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

            Like the book it is a lurid and disgusting tale of human enslavement, sexual violence and immoral explicit sexual depravity.

            It is destructive of any Christian value of marriage and chastity. It would be sinful to watch.

Holy Thursday

Holy Thursday is the day on which Christ celebrated the Last Supper with His disciples, four days after His triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Only hours after the Last Supper, Judas would betray Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, setting the stage for Christ's Crucifixion on Good Friday.

Holy Thursday is also known as "Maundy Thursday." The word maundy comes from the Latin word mandatum (commandment) which is the first word of the Gospel acclamation:

Mandátum novum do vobis dicit Dóminus, ut diligátis ínvicem, sicut diléxi vos. "I give you a new commandment: Love one another as I have loved you." (John 13:34)

These are the words spoken by our Lord to His apostles at the Last Supper, after he completed the washing of the feet. We should imitate Christ's humility in the washing of the feet.

Readings: Exodus 12:1-8, 11-14; Psalm 116:12-13, 15-16bc, 17-18; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26; John 13:1-15
