Please remember to keep a Mass Journal
As an ongoing activity, Jon is asking each of you to keep a Mass Journal. Here’s his request:
- Please find a notepad, booklet, blank pages stapled together … to use as your Mass Journal.
- Even though we cannot go physically to the church, we want you to participate in Mass online. Livestreaming is best, but watching a recording of the current Sunday’s Mass is OK. Watch OLG Masses live or recorded here: https://ourladyofguadalupechurch.org/discipleship/live-stream-mass/
- In your journal, write down one or two things that caught your attention about the readings or what the priest said in his homily after the readings. What stuck in your head?
For Next Time (June 9)
I) Be ready to share from your Mass Journal about the readings from Pentecost Sunday.
If you need some reminders and inspiration, here’s the readings http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/053120-day.cfm
And here’s an awesome reflection that ties it all in to Black Lives Matter, the protests, etc https://youtu.be/VlpeGsc6Q4w If you are short on time, skip to 1:45 in the video and then it’s just a 13 minute watch – well worth it.
II) Watch Bishop Barron’s video on the Ten Commandments.
Then, pick one of the commandments and
a) Share how you struggle with following it (as much as you are comfortable sharing)
b) Write a deep reflection on how well you live that commandment out
Optional for Next Time
Watch one of the these videos:
The “Pivotal Player” video on Catherine of Siena (~50 min) at https://www.wordonfire.org/study-programs/pivotal-players/
One of Fr Jim Martin’s videos on one of the saints & other holy people (Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton, Joan of Arc, Francis of Assisi, Mother Teresa, Ignatius Loyola, Bernadette Soubirous, Pope John XXIII, Therese of Liseux, Joseph, Peter, and Mary, Mother of Jesus) Each is about 9 minutes.
REFLECTION After watching one of the videos, write a reflection on how you can be more saintly, or what connects you to that saint or holy person?
Be ready to share with the class 🙂
Take a moment to tell us what you learned at this session!
