I thank everyone for their patience as the days without Mass, Benediction and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament Continue. Please Remember to pray for our church and government leaders, those who have died and are dying, often without being ready to die, and for their loved ones. Pray also for our health care workers.

While we are doing well in Quincy, Springfield and nearby counties, things are not good in Chicago and St. Louis. Illinois added 250 new cases yesterday, and 330 today. A total of 19 have died in our state.

If your children don't understand a pandemic, this YouTube video may help them. A Catholic homeschool Mom forwarded it to me:
