fr. gray's column for march 8 - coronavirus update

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Bishop Solis requested on March 9th that all Holy Water stoups in the Diocese now be emptied, and the distribution of the Precious Blood to the faithful and Sign of Peace at Mass be suspended for the time being.

Regardless of whether someone receives the Host or from the Chalice, the whole eucharistic Christ is received; this is called the doctrine of concomitance. As St. Thomas Aquinas wrote in the sequence for Corpus Christi, “Blood is poured and flesh is broken, / Yet in either wondrous token / Christ entire we know to be. // Whoso of this food partakes, / Does not rend the Lord nor breaks; / Christ is whole to all that taste.”

Trust in the Lord. Fear Not. Over and over again, we hear this message from scripture and in our faith—precisely because it is important for us to remember its substance when (not if) we are confronted by moments of uncertainty and fear.

St. Mary’s is attentive to anxiety caused by coronavirus and making preparations to respond. I encourage everyone to stay tuned to official communications from the authorities; if you haven’t already, register at www.parkcityalerts.org. Also, in the coming days and weeks we may make some changes to the way we gather to worship, which we’ll let you know about through Flocknote. Register, please, at stmarysparkcity.flocknote.com.

At some point—maybe even before you read this—we may suspend the distribution of the Precious Blood to the faithful. Regardless of whether someone receives the Host or from the Chalice, the whole eucharistic Christ is received; this is called the doctrine of concomitance. As St. Thomas Aquinas wrote in the sequence for Corpus Christi, “Blood is poured and flesh is broken, / Yet in either wondrous token / Christ entire we know to be. // Whoso of this food partakes, / Does not rend the Lord nor breaks; / Christ is whole to all that taste.”

The sign of peace might be suspended as well; even if not, a head nod and a smile to your neighbor is more than enough to greet them with peace. Likewise, the Our Father can be prayed very well with our own hands together in prayer and not holding someone else’s hands. Holding hands is not called for by the liturgy at the Our Father, though it has become a popular custom.

If you see me or another minister or friend before or after Mass, help us get out of the habit of shaking hands for the time being by waving instead—but let’s definitely still keep greeting each other with friendliness! However, if you’re feeling sick—sneezing, coughing, feverish—please stay home.

We may also remove the Holy Water from the stoups in our churches. However, we’ll always have Holy Water available for personal use; just ask (and bring a bottle).

Also, as the materials become available, we’ll be upgrading the soap available at our locations to be more suitable. Wash your hands often! As always, we’ll be working hard to keep our spaces clean. We’ll also be making other preparations. May God bless us all, and may we do our best to stay healthy!

In Christ,

Fr. Christopher Gray, pastor
