Message from Father Sievel:
St. John Newman, Bishop of Philadelphia (+1860) once said that if you breathe you have a mission. How true on the verge of the Civil War! How true today as well. We each have a mission. I suggest that two of our missions today involve the Covid pandemic and the peaceful transfer of power on January 20.
We need to keep social distance and avoid larger family (and other) groups. Don’t travel out of state and reserve vacations for a safer time. Above all, trust in the vaccines available and receive them as soon as we can. The Pope and our Bishops have spoken in favor of vaccination and urge us all to do the right thing and get vaccinated ( unless there are substantial medical reasons, of course.) We do this to keep ourselves and others Covid free.
Another mission for us involves accepting the transfer of power to take place in January. Time to let go of conspiracy theories and unproven “facts”. Accept the will of the majority of the American people. This is how a democracy works.
Lastly, our mission might be to pray for a unity of purpose as we go about the work of a new administration. Like St. Julie Billiart, the eighteenth century foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame, we might pray in times no less uncertain than her own, for “great souls” to do the important work ahead.
May it be so for us in this New Year of 2021!
Forward in Faith,
Father Tom Sievel, Pastor
