Bishop Larry Silva's letter, subject: Invitation to return to Mass and extended dispensation from obligation dated October 13, 2020 -
 
Aloha, Sisters and Brothers!  Peace be with you!
 
This year of 2020 has brought us many unprecedented experiences and major adjustments to our lives and livelihoods due to the coronavirus pandemic.  While we must not let down our guard and continue to observe prudent hygiene measures, we also want to look optimistically to the future.
 
With Advent and Christmas coming, it is very important that we prepare ourselves well for these high holy days in which we celebrate the great gift of the Word of God taking flesh and dwelling among us.  Therefore, I ask all the parishes to plan their Advent and Christmas schedules in such a way as to accommodate as many people as possible throughout these days.
 
Since mid-March through October 31, 2020 I have issued a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. I am hereby extending that dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation through December 31, 2020.  As I do so, however, I urge everyone who is able to return to Mass, without undue risks to their health or the health of others, to do so.

In the second reading, we hear about the Thessalonians.  They were a special group of people who created a reputation for themselves.  After St. Paul, Timothy and Silvanus established the church in the city of Thessalonica, they had to leave the city because of the persecution by the authorities.  St. Paul later discovered, despite his absence, that the Thessalonians survived the turbulent hardships and persecution.  The Thessalonians were able to build a reputation for themselves even though they were a very young church.  They developed a reputation of displaying and developing a deep faith in God.  Their unconditional love for God was visible in their efforts to live and to spread their religious beliefs.  They had a strong endurance in hope that Jesus Christ will return.  The Thessalonians also avoided worshipping idols.  In the second reading, St. Paul praises the Thessalonians for those virtues and their expressed belief that God had chosen them despite all the opposition from their culture.  The Thessalonians welcomed the Good News of Jesus with joy.  They dedicated their lives to God.
