Holy Week is an invitation to come to Jesus, who is the Father’s mercy turned towards the world. Even for isolated humans or those at the margins, it is a week when the Christian community speaks of welcome, return and embrace, like the embrace of the Prodigal Son in St. Luke’s beautiful parable. We are loved and “loved to the end” by our humble Lord and Savior, Jesus.
Daniel Cardinal DiNardo reflects on the tragedies in Ukraine and encourages Catholics to "use these days of Lent to praise God, to fast and pray, to generously serve others, and to reach Easter with renewed joy!"
Effective Jan. 2, 2022, the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord, this dispensation is removed for all Catholics within the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. The faithful should fulfill their Sunday and Holy Day obligations joyfully and conscientiously.
