Happy New Year!
Many blessings to you and yours in 2021! I can't believe it is 2021. I don't remember getting old. It's like I woke up one day and couldn't remember anything, everything hurt, and there was no such thing as too much sleep. Can anyone else relate to this? In addition to my aging, the Time of Pandemic has robbed me of the ability to tell time, read a calendar, count, and remember exactly when I last took a shower. So, here's hoping and praying we get some relief soon.
I had mentioned that January 10th Tara and I would be distributing the next set of Weeklies. However, they have not come in yet. So, we will be at the parking lot behind the rectory on
Sunday, Jan 17th from 3-5 pm
. Just pull in and we'll hand you your next package. If you cannot make it then, message me and we can make arrangements. If you no longer wish to receive CCD supplies from us, let me know that as well.
I've included a link to the USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) that has a house blessing for Epiphany. In the Polish tradition, we bless the house using blessed chalk. Above the doorway, we write the year and the letters B, M, and K as follows: 20+B+M+K+21. In case you hadn't noticed, I love being Polish! So much rich religious traditions, and food! I'm grateful to my parents who lived out their faith in their every day lives. It made me who I am today.
As always, you are missed terribly! I look forward to the day when we can all be together again, safely and in one room. I'm still planning on a party for us once this age of social distancing is over. You can't beat a good party.
The above quote from Jeremiah is my favorite! The full quote is: "For I know well the plans I have in mind for you—oracle of the LORD—plans for your welfare and not for woe, so as to give you a future of hope. When you call me, and come and pray to me, I will listen to you. When you look for me, you will find me. Yes, when you seek me with all your heart, I will let you find me—oracle of the LORD—and I will change your lot." (Jer 29: 11-14a) Words of encouragement and hope for this new year.
