Happy Holy Thursday Everyone! This evening, the Season of Lent ends and we enter the Paschal Triduum. At 7PM we will have the Mass of the Lord’s Supper. At the Mass of the Lord’s Supper, we commemorate the institution of the Priesthood, the institution of the Holy Eucharist, and the great command to serve. The word Eucharist is Greek for thanksgiving, and I am thankful for you, your prayers, your kindness, your patience and support. Thank you! Maybe like me, you are thankful for all the good priests that have touch your life. Let’s say a prayer for them this day!
This past year you really have stepped up to the plate to support our parish community of Saint Mary Magdalene. Speaking of plate, thanks again for supporting our Carry Out Dinners. Every little bit helps. I mentioned we will have a dinner at the end of the month, on Saturday, April 24th, the Feast of Saint Fidelis Sigmaringen. With that, we will be serving an Old World Eastern European Dish that is uniquely exquisite. We take aged hard boiled eggs, mixed it in brown rice with chunks of smokey, aged dried ham, and serve it cold with beets and boiled Brussel Sprouts. It’s a slightly different, but the leftover eggs from Easter and leftover Easter ham mingled together with the brown rice give it such an unmistakable succulent flavor that your taste buds will never forget. Please pray for our KofC, that they carefully peel the Easter Eggs. Making a mass quantity of this flavorsome dish will inevitably produce a few unwanted eggshells with the meal. But the flavors from the aged ham and eggs will make you forget the little crunchy surprises that say, April Fools Day! Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
God bless and stay safe!
