What Spiritual Communion Is and Why We Need It Now by Mother Diane
A Message from Deacon Tony
Greetings to all of our Saint Matthew’s community and clergy. We are excited and thankful to have this beautiful and poignant writing from Mother Diane to share with each of you. Please keep this writing tucked away in your minds, hearts, and souls as you share in the celebration with us throughout our recorded Mass services during Holy Week and each Sunday going forward, until we can all be together in person again.
If you are a priest, and as a “gentle reminder” (because I’m certain most of you are already doing this), please remember to celebrate Holy Eucharist at home with your family while Bishop Peter does it during the recorded Mass. I was reminded by Mother Diane that Mass should never be celebrated alone, so please get your immediate family involved because “wherever two or more of you are gathered in His name, He is with you.” This is such a comfort and a Blessing. Thank you Lord Jesus.
Stay safe, stay connected with our community, and stay PRAYERFUL. God Bless you all.

Recordings will be available on Facebook after the scheduled Mass times on our Videos page.
We will try our best to also have the recording available on our website for this Sunday (later in the day), but as we are still a little new to Zoom, we appreciate your patience with us. We definitely plan to post our recordings on our website, but this may take a bit of time to accomplish. Please continue to check out the website periodically for updates. Thank you!

Search for “Saint Matthew Bible Study” or visit https://facebook.com/groups/2790944940960983/. The group is open to Saint Matthew members and anyone else from all over the world who would like to participate.
Beginning Monday, April 6th at 7 PM, Rev. Mo. Martha Rogers will be teaching an inter-faith study from the Hebrew Bible on the very short Book of Ruth. Although dated to the 5th Century BCE, the story of Ruth and Naomi is startling in its current relevance for our lives. It depicts struggles between famine and starvation, pestilence and death, immigration, crossing cultural and religious boundaries between men and women, rich and poor, insiders and outsiders.
The story theme is captured in the Hebrew words, hesed, and baruk/berukah – We are blessed by and we bless others; and we act in faithfulness toward them. Isn’t that what we see going on in the world at this time? We are awed by the acts of hesed and sacrifice for others going on around us during the COVID-19 crisis.
We aspire to share meaningfully with those whose faith practices are central to their lifestyles and also those who may be curious as to how anyone in our time would still want to turn to manuscripts thousands of years old for guidance!
The study is expected to run for ten weeks, with each segment about half an hour. It will be ‘live’ and also recorded so that you can access it at your convenience. There will be an e-book made available on line for those who are interested.
