Marvels of Mass

Reflection for the 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time - June 21, 2020

Our Mass this weekend, begins with the refrain to the song “Sing a New Song.”

Sing a new song unto the Lord;

let your song be sung from mountains high.

Sing a new song unto the Lord, singing alleluia.

This text is echoed in the end of our first reading from Jeremiah where the Prophet entrusts us to “Sing to the Lord, praise the Lord.”

Reflection on The Feast of Corpus Christi - June 14, 2020

Juliana of Liège, a 13th century canoness from Liège, Belgium, had a vision of the Church under a full moon with one dark spot on it, signifying the absence of a feast dedicated to the Body and Blood of Christ. After having visions of Christ for over 20 years, she finally told her Bishop about it, upon which he instituted the celebration of Corpus Christi to be held in the diocese each year thereafter on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday.

Reflection on the Feast of Pentecost - May 31, 2020

Happy Birthday! The Church celebrates its beginning today on Pentecost Sunday, when the Holy Spirit filled the hearts of the faithful, sending them out to spread the Gospel, and the Church was born. In the first reading from the Acts of the Apostles, we hear of how the Holy Spirit came to rest on all of the gathered disciples, and people from across the nations could hear and understand all that was being pro-claimed in their native tongue – even though all the speakers were from Galilee.

Reflection for the 5th Sunday of Easter - May 10, 2020

There are times like now when I really don’t want to do this reflection. BUT, I also know that it’s times like this where I MUST lean on our faith and open my heart to hear God in my life. There’s nothing better to do than to read the Gospel for this Sunday and reflect. As I read this Gospel once again, I realize how God puts scrip-tures before us that have an uncanny way of speaking to some aspect of our lives just when we need it. The opening line: “Do not let your hearts be troubled.” (John 14:1) Just what I need today.

Reflection for the 4th Sunday of Easter - May 3, 2020

The 4th Sunday of Easter is often referred to as ‘Good Shepherd’ Sunday as we always have a Gospel reading referencing the ‘good shepherd’, (ironically enough, I know). In Cycle A readings, the reference is a bit different from the regular: ‘I know my sheep and mine know me.’ and ‘A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.’ This year, we hear of images of a gatekeeper, and sheep following him through the gate, of hearing a voice and recogniz-ing that voice. Our music leads us also to these teachings.

Reflection for the 3rd Sunday of Easter - April 26, 2020

We begin our Masses this weekend with the glorious proclamation of Christ’s resurrection – a theme that we repeat each week during this Easter season. Today, that hymn is “Festival Canticle: Worthy is Christ” by Richard Hillert, an American composer and professor. He is known as a Lutheran composer, but, of course, all Christian denominations believe in the resurrection of Our Lord. The text for this hymn is based on Revelation 5:12–14:
 
And they cried out in a loud voice:
“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
