A Revolution of Love and Tenderness

In his Apostolic Letter entitled: “Misericordia et Misera” or “Mercy and Misery” or one could say: “mercy meets and heals misery” Pope Francis calls on us to “unleash the creativity of mercy” so as “to bring about new undertakings, the fruit of grace.” 

In response The Basilica of Saint Mary community is invited to continue on the path of mercy by initiating a Revolution of Love and Tenderness. Revolutions, peaceful and otherwise have changed the world. Our suffering world is in dire need of a great change. So we propose a peaceful revolution accomplished through love and tenderness, two Christian strengths Pope Francis often links to mercy.

The post-revolutionary world we envision is a world where people respect and honor all life and protect all of creation; where people bridge divides and work toward the common good; where people end all discrimination and accept one another no matter who they are; where people end all speech and acts of hatred and division; and where people have learned how to put the “we” before the “I.”

This is the world God had envisioned, it is the world we envision.

Low Gluten Host

People who need a low-gluten host need to identify themselves before Mass so that a host can be prepared in a pyx. It goes into the presider’s plate and that individual is instructed to come forward in presider's line and point to the pyx to receive. Father will simply tip the pyx so that the host falls into their hands with minimal risk of cross-contamination with the regular hosts.

Children's Activity Bags

The Basilica provides children’s activity bags at all the Sunday Masses. Activity Bags can be found near the entrance of the main church.

Sunday Worship Leaflet

A pdf file of the Sunday Worship leaflet is available. The leaflet is posted on Thursdays.
