INTRODUCTION TO THE LITURGY – Theme: Love in Three Person the understanding of a God in there persons was alien to the Israelites. It is unique to Christian faith. At best, a Christian reading of the Hebrew Scriptures sees a background to later to later belief in earlier texts. Thus, it can said that the attributes of mercy and fidelity in the Exodus reading today foreshadow qualities that will be later seen in God. Paul’s prayerful invocation in today’s second reading relates three distinct divine activities to God. Jesus Christ, and the Spirit. The work of the triune God is implied in the Johannine Jesus’ conversation with Nicodemus. Love prompted the Father to send the Son who was bearer of the Spirit, the source of eternal life.

FROM THE RECTOR’S DESK Eternal God, eternal Trinity, You are a mystery as deep as the sea; the more I search, the more I find, and the more I find the more I search for you. But I can never be satisfied; what I receive will ever leave me desiring more. When you fill my soul I have an even greater hunger, and I grow more famished for your light. I desire above all to see you, the true light, as you really are. I have tasted and seen the depth of your mystery and the beauty of your creation with the light of my understanding.

A NOTE FROM THE RECTOR – Fr. Jim will continue with weekend and daily masses and since only 10 people can be present in the church for mass including the priest, parishioners may stay in their cars in the church parking lot and tune in at 88.1 radio station and Fr. Jim will gladly come out and give communion as you stay in the comfort of your car.
