The Catechism of the Catholic Church—Chapter One

(Follow Along with Us Weekly) 32 The world: starting from movement, becoming, contingency, and the world’s order and beauty, one can come to a knowledge of God as the origin and the end of the universe. As St. Paul says of the Gentiles: For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made.7 And St. Augustine issues this challenge: Question the beauty of the earth, question the beauty of the sea, question the beauty of the air distending and diffusing itself, question the beauty of the sky. . . question all these realities. All respond: “See, we are beautiful.” Their beauty is a profession [confessio]. These beauties are subject to change. Who made them if not the Beautiful One [Pulcher] who is not subject to change?

COLD & FLU SEASON INFORMATION

If you are feeling ill or think you may have been exposed to a virus, you should refrain from coming to Mass or parish events. In the same way, if you have a cold you should refrain from offering your hand to others at the sign of peace.  Simply gently bow your head with your hands kept together and acknowledge those around you while saying “Peace be with you.”  Likewise if you are not comfortable sharing the sign of peace either because your doctor has indicated you are currently more susceptible to illness or those around you seem ill you should feel no pressure to do so. Finally, The obligation to attend Mass on Sunday and other Holy Days of Obligation is the ordinary expectation for Roman Catholics (Canon 1247). However, extraordinary circumstances such as sickness or severe weather excuse the faithful from this obligation. If you suspect you have the flu or are suffering from a serious cold or other contagious illness, please stay at home and do not risk spreading infection to others.
