Catholic Dose Week of June 4th

A dose of faith to start your week.

Welcome to Catholic Dose, a short, weekly dose of the faith delivered every Sunday.

This week in the Church:

Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity… This Sunday is dedicated to the Blessed Trinity of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Here are the Sunday Mass Readings. Remember the name by which you were baptized and rejoice!

The Sacred Heart… The month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We’re praying this every day:

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, filled with Infinite Love, broken by our ingratitude and pierced by our sins, yet loving us still, accept the consecration we make to You of all that we are and all we have.

Take every faculty of our souls and bodies, only day by day draw us nearer and nearer to Your Sacred Heart, and there, as we shall bear the lesson, teach us Your Holy Way. Amen.

It’s a Feast Day:

Saint Boniface (Monday)… Monday, June 5th, is the feast day of Saint Boniface. “The Apostle to the Germans” ministered throughout the seventh century before he was martyred in 754. His last words are recorded as: “Cease, my sons, from fighting, give up warfare, for the witness of Scripture recommends that we do not give an eye for an eye but rather good for evil. Here is the long-awaited day, the time of our end has now come; courage in the Lord!”

Worth knowing:

“The body of Sister Wilhelmina Lancaster, an African American nun whose surprisingly intact remains have created a sensation at a remote Missouri abbey, was placed inside a glass display case Monday after a solemn procession led by members of the community she founded.” (Full article)

Until next week, may the Lord bless you and keep you.
