Who Inspires You?
Catholic Medical Mission Board is a faith-based non-profit healthcare organization, working toward our vision in which every human life is valued, and health and human dignity are shared by all.
Inspired by the example of Jesus, our focus is on the care of others, bringing quality healthcare to poor, remote communities around the world. We strengthen rural health facilities, providing donated medicines and supplies and placing volunteer healthcare workers to administer care and work with the community to build capacity at the local level so that improved care is long-lasting and sustainable.
Each week, CMMB provides a reflection on Sunday’s Gospel reading, as it keeps us connected to our mission to serve the poor and help heal the sick.
We would like to share this week’s Weekly Reflection with you.

For the February intention, Pope Francis asks us to "pray for women who are victims of violence, that they may be protected by society and have their sufferings considered and heeded by all."

Weekly Wisdom
In his Thursday, January 28th homily, Fr. Hallinan challenges us to look at ourselves and not to God when seeking to understand the "sorry shape" of our world: "We as human beings so often shake an angry fist at God and complain about the condition of our world: "Why do You allow this?" And, God shakes His head and says, "Whose fault is this? It's not My fault. It's your fault. You have been told what to do: 'Be a light that will scatter the darkness of the world.' Now, go do it. Be the persons of love you are commanded to be."
In this week's episode On Doubts and Dark Nights, Pastoral Associate Brian Pinter explores how these moments are an essential passage on our journey to deeper, more mature faith.

Webinar: Catholic Women in Global Health: Mothers and Children

Monday, February 8th at 7 PM on Zoom
Many of the most at-risk mothers and children in the developing world live in rural settings with limited access to even basic health care. CMMB (Catholic Medical Mission Board) works with community health workers, village health committees, local clinics, and hospitals to ensure that care is delivered to families living where the road ends. Engaging community members in this process has proved especially critical during the pandemic when seeking health care might itself be a source of risk. Finding ways to reduce the risk of Coronavirus spreading while still promoting the most basic health services that each year prevent the deaths of thousands of women and children around the world has created an unprecedented challenge. Community-based approaches are valuable and the strengthening of clinics and hospitals is still a necessary component of life-saving solutions.

Painting and Patriotism 
Wednesday, February 24th at 7 PM on Zoom

Presented by Fr. Leo J. O'Donovan, S.J.
Beset by a world-wide, deadly pathogen, suffering from severe economic distress, painfully aware of our heritage of racial injustice, and alarmed by divisions in our nation, we Americans need new reasons for patriotism. But not just any patriotism. A critical, socially aware, and committed patriotism.

Join Fr. Leo J. O'Donovan, S.J., in visiting American paintings in the Metropolitan Museum of Art to find light for what such a patriotism might be like.

Falling into Grace
Thursdays, February 25th to March 25th, at 7 PM on Zoom
Lent invites us to prepare for resurrection by allowing God’s grace to redeem and transform our broken, wounded places. The presentations and discussions will explore how we find grace in struggle and suffering, meditation practices that prepare the heart to receive grace, biblical stories of grace, letting go images of God that no longer serve us, and how we cooperate with grace. Brian B. Pinter, Pastoral Associate, will present and facilitate the discussion.

Last summer, Fr. Yesalonia announced an ambitious expansion of our livestream capabilities at the parish.

We will soon have the capability to livestream Sunday Mass from Church. Additionally, monitors will be installed in the Church and so that pre-recorded music can be broadcast into the Church during services.

Eventually, services and events will be livestreamed from the Lady Chapel, the Church, and Wallace Hall.
