While the Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time takes precedence over the usual feast that falls on this day, it is still a good opportunity to reflect upon Our Lady of Lourdes and the many miraculous events connected with this feast. I encourage you to take some extra time in prayer today lifting up all those in your families who are sick.
World Marriage Day is also celebrated today. Our society is stronger when married people are building families centered on solid Truth, Jesus Christ. May God's grace flow abundantly so that the domestic Church, the family, will flourish in love, patience, and holiness!
