Monsignor’s Message – Rosh Hashanah

Posted on Sep 14, 2017 in Monsignor's Message, Msgr. Kieran Harrington

This is a message from Msgr. Kieran Harrington, Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn that appears in The Tablet:

In the coming weeks our Jewish brothers and sisters will celebrate Rosh Hashanah. This marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year. The shofar will sound and soon the people of God will embark on ten days of penitence. It would be good for us to follow the example of our elder brothers and sisters in faith. In a real sense as summer ends, we too begin a new year. Parents and children are given an opportunity to begin anew. Parishes and parishioners all start anew. In a world that is self–indulgent, we can all begin with penance before we start anew.

May God bless you,
Monsignor Kieran Harrington, V.E.
