RECEPTION OF THE PRECIOUS BLOOD DURING THE FLU SEASON
WE HAVE RECEIVED THE FOLLOWING DIRECTIVE FROM THE DIOCESAN OFFICE OF WORSHIP CONCERNING THE RECEPTION OF THE PRECIOUS BLOOD DURING THE FLU/COLD SEASON:
“THERE IS NO REASON TO WITHHOLD THE PRECIOUS BLOOD FOR HOLY COMMUNION. IT IS THE DECISION OF EACH INDIVIDUAL TO RECEIVE THE PRECIOUS BLOOD. IF CATHOLICS SUSPECT THE ONSET OF INFLUENZA OR ARE SIMPLY NOT FEELING HEALTHY, THEN THEY SHOULD MAKE THE DECISION TO REFRAIN FROM RECEIVING THE CUP. RECEIVING THE BODY OF CHRIST (CONSECRATED HOST) IS ADVISED UNTIL THE PERSON FEELS WELL AGAIN. PERSONAL COMMON SENSE REGARDING THE SACRAMENTAL SPECIES IS THE BEST COURSE OF ACTION.”
THE SIGN OF PEACE
AT THE SIGN OF PEACE THE FAITH COMMUNITY SHOWS THEIR MUTUAL CHARITY JUST PRIOR TO RECEIVING COMMUNION. THIS OFTEN INVOLVES PHYSICAL CONTACT SUCH AS HUGGING OR SHAKING HANDS. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT A SIMPLER GESTURE, SUCH AS A BOW OF THE HEAD OR A SMILE, ACCOMPANY THE WORDS OF PEACE IF ONE IS NOT FEELING WELL AND MIGHT BE CONTAGIOUS.

National Vocation Awareness Week is the week of November 2-8, 2014. Please consider your call to serve God in your particular vocation. Hopefully some of you will hear a call to priesthood, diaconate or religious life and will be open to that possibility. As we celebrate this commemoration, we recall all the holy men and women who have gone before us marked with the sign of peace and their commitment to the faith in the Lord Jesus.
Prayer for Vocations:
Loving God, author of grace and mercy, You call us through our baptism in the Spirit to continue the mission of your beloved Son, Jesus. Open us to listen attentively for your invitation. Empower us to respond to your call. Inspire men and women to follow the path of service. Together, may we build up the Church to be a vibrant sign of your presence in our world. We offer this prayer in the name of your Son, Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
