Fr Edmund’s Pastoral Notes

April 7, 2024

This Divine Mercy Sunday from 2pm to 3pm, we celebrate an Hour of God’s Mercy with the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and the praying of the Divine Mercy chaplet at our main sanctuary. Confessions will be available from 1pm to 2pm. A reception will be held at the Hospitality area. Last year’s celebration marked the re-dedication of the renovated St. Mary’s Chapel and the Blessing of the Image of the Divine Mercy follows the celebration. There is a sign reminding us that absolute silence is to be observed in the corridor between St. Mary’s Chapel and the Blessed Sacrament Chapel where in both sacred places parishioners and visitors pray and meditate. There will be no talking or stopping along this corridor. The renovated chapel is the sacred place to strengthen our devotion to the Virgin Mary and the Divine Mercy. The Scriptural Stations of the Cross, featured in this chapel, are based on those celebrated by Pope John Paul II on Good Friday 1991. They are presented as a way of reflecting more deeply on the Scriptural accounts of Christ’s passion.  
 
Sunday Collection is back! Started last Good Friday and Easter Sunday, we will continue to take up the weekend collection this weekend and the following weekends with our ushers passing around the baskets, as done before the pandemic. May God, who cannot be outdone in love and generosity, continue to bless our love and generosity. 
 
The Eucharistic Miracles of the World Exhibit (May 24 – June 2) is coming to our community! May this exhibit be an opportunity for all of us to re-visit our faith in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist through the incredible narratives and testaments of so many about how the Eucharist takes on a spectacular display of its spiritual reality in the physical realm. Transubstantiation, the becoming of the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ during the  Consecration in the Holy Eucharist, is the ongoing miracle that we have to appreciate as God’s most precious gift to us. The Eucharist, as “the source and summit of all Christian life” (The Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1324) should convince us more and more to make the Sunday Mass a priority in our life. May the Eucharist always renew in us in living the Paschal Mystery of Christ’s suffering, death and resurrection. May God’s blessings be with us as we honor His Son’s Real Presence in the Eucharist  through this exhibit!

 

 
Healing Lines

“Peace be with you.” (John 20:19) In a time of increasing violence in our homes and world let us not miss the “signs” of those who need our help. The signs may not be physically visible. Victims of domestic and family abuse are wounded in so many ways. Get to know your Church and community neighbors. Be there to support and refer them for help when they need it. Actively pass on the “signs of peace”.
