"The LORD bless you and keep you!
The LORD let his face shine upon
you, and be gracious to you!
The LORD look upon you kindly and
give you peace!"
Happy New Year from your Resurrection Parish Family!
Let us celebrate the start of 2022 by honoring Mary, Mother of God.
We look to Mary to help us bring Christ to the world and strengthen us as instruments of peace. May we follow her example of love, faith, devotion, and reflection throughout 2022 and beyond.
Listen and reflect to the song Ave Maria with various images of Mary
How will your Church of the Home grow more in faith during 2022?
How can you make more time for daily prayer?
How can you give more to the poor?
How can you speak up for those without a voice?
How can you bring the love and peace of God to yourself, your family, your community, and the world?
As a parish community, we continue our life-long faith formation focus on the Catholic Social Teachings. Check out this article featured in the January 2022 issue of U.S Catholic magazine for some great ideas in making New Year Resolutions based in our faith:
This weekend we also celebrate the Epiphany. The Epiphany marks the arrival of visitors, identified in Scripture as the magi, to the place where Jesus was born. Although we know virtually nothing about them, we do know they brought three gifts:
Gold — a symbol of wealth and power, identifies the recipient as a king.
Frankincense — the crystalized resinous sap of a tree used as incense and as an offering, is symbolic of prayer.
Myrrh — another resinous tree sap, was used in healing liniments and as an embalming ointment. Myrrh is an odd gift for a child—so, even at the beginning of Jesus' life on earth, this gift foreshadows his death.
For much of the secular world, the holiday season has died down. Reflect on the joys of the holiday season and what you have left to celebrate when the decorations are put away.
Say this blessing on your home on the Epiphany.
Wish someone a Merry Christmas today! An easy way to evangelize is to wish someone a Merry Christmas during the Christmas season after December 25 and explain why. The liturgical season of Christmas begins with the vigil Masses on Christmas Eve and concludes on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord.
Join us for Mass this weekend in person at 4:oo on Saturday, 8:30 or 10:30 on Sunday, on www.gbres.org/live, our YouTube channel, and our Facebook page.
READINGS FOR THIS WEEKEND’S MASSES
VIRTUALLY SUNDAY REFLECTION
Join Fr. Paul as he reflects on his heritage and inner divine providence, from this Sunday's Scripture readings.
This is an initiative that will deliver weekly resources to Churches of the Home. These resources will give suggestions for how to Pray, Listen, Act and Ponder with a given topic throughout the course of each week. Project Nazareth will explore the fundamental Gospel message of the Sunday Mass and other special topics such as the Year of the Eucharist.
This is a way to weave faith formation into the fabric of family life.
