Brothers and sisters,
Many of us know about the grand jury report from Pennsylvania and the scandalous behavior of
Archbishop McCarrick and are rightly filled with anger, indignation, and sadness.
The most important victims are the children, adolescents, and seminarians, many of whom are now adults, who suffered abuse and in many cases, neglect from the institutional Church. The devastation wrought in their lives and the lives of their families and friends cannot be understated.
At the end of all the Masses this weekend, I will be inviting all of you to join me in a weekly Friday fast for four intentions: first, for the victims, their families, and their friends. Second, for clergy, especially bishops, that we may act decisively to combat corruption in the Church. Third, for all those whose faith and trust in the Church has been shaken. Fourth, that all of us may lead by example and zealously be the saints that God calls us to be.
The Friday fast will span the next seven Fridays (August 31 – October 12): consuming only bread and water for breakfast and lunch, eating a regular meal for dinner, and not snacking between meals. If you are medically unable to participate in this fast, please fast in a way that will not cause lasting harm to you.
The act of fasting is meant to be a prolonged prayer, much like lighting a candle in a chapel, but one that affects the body as well as the soul. May the hunger we will feel embolden our hunger for truth, justice, and peace.
Fr. Thomas More Barba, O.P.

Society of St. Vincent de Paul
Although the Texas economy is good, there are people who struggle to get by. Their children get sick and so they miss a few days of work, or the car breaks down, or those July and August electric bills are almost twice as high. Situations snowball and eviction is a possibility. We, with your generous support, are able to help get them back on track. Thank you, thank you.
