"In the sight of angels I will sing your praises, Lord" (Psalm 138)
Hello, Guardian Angels Family,
Friday, January 22, is a day of prayer and fasting for our Catholic pro-life cause. Consider skipping a meal that day and praying an extra Rosary or Divine Mercy Chaplet—as a minimum.
St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Longmont will offer a special Respect Life Mass at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 23. Please attend and pray for the repose of the souls of the aborted babies and for the conversion and healing of the mothers, fathers, nurses, doctors, staff, and escorts involved in abortions.

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 17. For all of Lent we will pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet before Masses. Begin to learn this simple prayer.
Stations of the Cross will be on Friday evenings. Different groups will lead the prayers. The prayer format will be within Eucharistic Adoration. For example, the format would look like this:
7:00 Priest or deacon exposes the Eucharist in the monstrance and leads the singing
7:05 Youth Group, Women’s Group or _______ begin the prayers for the stations
7:30 After the prayers are completed, the lights are turned out for 10 minutes of silence in the dark (to listen to our Lord)
7:40 The Divine Mercy Chaplet prayed in the dark
7:48 Priest or deacon leads Benediction prayers
Total time is usually less than an hour
The Knights of Columbus will have take-out fish fry food available. Please support the Knights
Thanks For Your Prayers
Laugh with me—there is no HIPAA privacy for priests. Everybody wants to know what a priest has when he is sick. I had a bad sore throat from Friday afternoon until Tuesday afternoon. It finally began to diminish. It is 95% gone. [No COVID, no strep, no fever, no chills at all.] It will take a little longer for my energy and voice to return. I probably won’t sing this weekend. I am directing everyone to St. John Church on Saturday in Longmont for the pro-life Mass at 10:00 a.m. I canceled it here to pace myself for the weekend.
Peace of Christ,
