It’s only human nature—at one time or another, all of us have taken something for granted. Perhaps it was a loved one we didn’t appreciate until they passed away. Or maybe it was time spent with friends who have since moved away. Maybe it was our health or financial circumstances. Or maybe it was something even bigger, God’s presence in our lives.
But even so, I know one thing for certain: no member of the parish at Sunday Mass at Mercy Home takes their time to worship for granted. For those who are homebound or ill, the loss of attending Mass each week is devastating. That is precisely why our Parish of the Airwaves is so important. It allows everyone in our community, regardless of age or health or disability, to participate in a local community of faith. Is there any greater blessing?
I have been asked in the past if it is acceptable for someone able-bodied to attend Mass through the television and skip Mass at their local parishes. The truth is that if you are physically, mentally, and safely able to go to Mass at your church, you should! After over two years of the pandemic, we all know how important it is to be able to meet and worship with others in person. It is a privilege we should not take for granted. It is a blessing to be able to gather with others who share your faith and worship together.
But should you ever find yourself in a position where you are no longer able to attend Mass at your parish, either temporarily or permanently, Sunday Mass at Mercy Home will be there for you.
Christ’s love for us is a gift beyond measure. God’s mercy goes beyond our comprehension. And we are asked for so little in return—it is important as a people of faith to honor the obligation of fellowship as we are able.
This month, I hope you will remember to be grateful for the blessings in your life, particularly the gift of faith that we share. Please pray for the TV Mass community of faith, knowing with confidence that you have a place in my daily prayers, as well as those of the Mercy Home family.
