WATERTOWN ,Mass (August 6, 2015) - The daily Catholic Mass was celebrated at the Watertown studios of CatholicTV in the Chapel of Holy Cross.
Father Thomas Domurat of Most Holy Redeemer Parish in Boston presided Mass in honor of the feast of St. Lawrence. Father Domurat was joined by parishioners of Most Holy Redeemer including Mr. James Molina and Mr. Moses Perez who served at the altar; as well as Mr. Kevin Martinez who served as lector.
Saint Lawrence was a deacon under Pope Sixtus II, who sacrificed his own life in response to a sudden persecution of the Church. The Prefect of Rome believed the Church had a large amount of money and valuables hidden away somewhere and demanded that Lawrence give them to him at once. Lawrence gathered all of the sick and poor people of the Church and presented them to the Prefect, stating, “This is the Church’s treasure!” (www.catholic.org). In response the Prefect sentenced him to death and Lawrence gave all of his money and sold items of value to the poor.
