Be brave. Be strong. Be true. Our baptismal promises require this of us!

I am so happy to celebrate Juneteenth this year, and am thinking of it as a holy day. As Sr. Thea Bowman used to say, inspired by Civil Rights marchers: IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU'RE SCARED, JUST KEEP ON STEPPIN'! Wise and Blessed advice from one of the five African Americans on their way to Catholic Sainthood, some of whom were born in slavery.

The Lord is blessing us in so many ways ... we just can't tell it all!

Giving birth during a pandemic may sound like a scary thing. But Madelyn Collins found the experience of delivering her second daughter amidst COVID-19 not all that much different from her first. Read her story:

FREE MILK this week! Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson is hosting the Mayor’s Milk Initiative, a partnership between Borden Dairy, Dallas ISD, and local faith leaders to give away gallons of 2% white milk to Dallas families in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

There are sites all over the city open beginning this Thursday through the end of June.

Get your creativity flowing, and get ready to salute Father Tim in a retirement parade in his honor!

Fr. Gabriel Gillen, O.P., will be offering a special Novena of Masses to St. Martin de Porres for racial reconciliation and peace in the United States beginning on June 26 and ending on July 4. You can find the Novena prayer here: https://bit.ly/2Be1vah

Bro. Mickey shares ... "Blessings of Corpus Christi Sunday - 2 days late! (I started this Sunday night but feel asleep before finishing.) The late, great Sr. Thea Bowman used to tell kids that God gave us five fingers for a reason: to remind us of the five colors of people in the world -- black, white, red, yellow, and brown. This idea came to me during our first community Mass Sunday. Color in the hosts with the five colors of humanity and Christ's body, and pray for an end to racism.

What a wonderful time to share this video! Our children are beginning to know the joy of receiving Jesus for the first time in the Sacrament of Communion. Also, this Sunday is the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ. Here's a special story to share with your family.

Bro. Mickey O'Neill Mcgrath, OSFS

Do this throughout the day: Take a deep breath and hold it, Breathe In love, compassion, wisdom and peace; then Breathe Out racism, misogyny, homophobia, and hatred. But wear a mask, so you don't breathe all that nastiness back into the world.

When I Sleep - Tribute to Those Killed in Racism's Snare

The scars of systematic racism plague our nation,
our communities, and our churches.
For too long, too many of us stood silent or said too little
as our Black brothers and sisters
succumbed to the brutal blows of racism’s cruel injustice.

Let us say their names,
those who bled and died on this punishing cross,
and ask forgiveness.

We cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form. At the same time, we have to recognize that violence is self-destructive and self-defeating. Nothing is gained by violence and so much is lost. Let us pray for reconciliation and peace. -- Pope Francis

Keep calm and color! Choose colors which make you mindful of the Pentecost Spirit of light and love, not fear and anger. Take a break from the news while you do this. Have a cup of tea or a glass of wine (or any adult beverage of your choice, of course), engage all your senses, and welcome the light filled presence of the Spirit into your heart.

Remembering our courageous fallen ones ...

One of the most memorable places I have ever been is Normandy Beach on the coast of France. It was beautiful and sunny, and peaceful and quiet, not at all as it was on DDay. I felt I was on Holy Ground and think of it in a special way every Memorial Day. My prayers of thanks to all those men and women who still make such courageous sacrifices today for all of us.
