Recently we received the unwelcome news that our churches and church offices are to be closed again. Governor Newsom has made this determination, and Bishop Barnes and our diocese are going along with it.
Catholics are heartily in favor of civil disobedience if there is a clear moral issue involved. When, however, there is no clear overwhelming moral issue at stake — and the only thing at risk is my private right to do as I please and not be encumbered or discomforted — our tendency is to go along with civil authority.
After all, people will have different opinions about almost anything. If we all reserve to ourselves the final determination of what is for the common good without reference to others, there will be no end to civil disorder.
So … we return to our livestream Mass schedule of quarantine days listed below.
HOWEVER … We are allowed to gather outside … in groups of less than 100, with face masks, and observing sanitizing procedures.
God bless you and keep your safe! Fr. Mike
