Something to Contemplate

June 2020

Is it coincidence that the overturning of Roe v Wade was announced on the day of the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, known as Corpus Christi? It’s a two-for-one solemnity paired with The Immaculate Heart of Mary which follows the very next day. Two very prominent hearts protruding from the chests of Mary and Jesus statues and religious paintings, adorned with flowers or thorns, and backed by starbursts of gold rays, are featured with both Holy Figures. At the same time of the ROE reversal announcement are the simultaneous actions of saving millions of beating hearts of unborn children.

The Gospel reading for the celebration day of the Immaculate Heart is always the 4th Joyful Mystery, the Presentation of baby Jesus to the Holy Simeon and the High Priestess, Anna, in the Temple Israel, where Simeon prophesizes the piercing of Mary’s heart in the future Passion of the Lord. You can find it in Luke if you want to read it and contemplate.

We should almost re-tee up “Cinnamon-Roll Sunday”, as a celebration and recognition of all the years the HNOJ Right-to-Life Group, the KC Women’s Auxiliary and Tom Silver-ETAL via our KC Council, logged hundreds of hours in the Kitchen and Narthex with the endless, undying hope that this day would come.

Brothers, keep praying for miracles.
