Message from Fr. Beaugrand: Laetare Sunday! It means hurry up! Next week will be Passiontide and then Palm Sunday and Holy Week! We have passed mid-Lent already and today Church is rejoicing and asks us to rejoice because dead to sin with Our Lord during Lent we will very soon be risen with Him by Easter Holy Communion and Confession. The gospel today is talking about the Multiplication of Bread and fishes symbolizing the Eucharist and the epistle brings us back to baptism. Station today is at the basilica of Holy Cross in Jerusalem in Rome, very close to Saint John Lateran. That Basilica is on the Mount Coelius where Saint Helena, mother of Constantin, was living. She transformed her palace into the basilica because of the Holy Relics of the Passion of Our Lord. On this day, before in that basilica, were blessed roses, queen of flowers, to represent the flowered garden in Heaven. Adam and Eve were living in a beautiful garden and were lead out of it because of their disobedience. Now, at the edge of our resurrection with Our Lord, we can see that hope being restored. Rejoice! That’s also why organ can be heard and flowers be put on the altar. Then, we will intensify our penance to be ready on time!
