Reflection on the Feast of Corpus Christi - June 6, 2021

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 for the Feast of Pentecost - May 23. 2021

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 proclaimed in their native tongue – even though all the speakers were from Galilee.

Reflection for the 6th Sunday of Easter - May 9, 2021

In today’s Gospel we hear again of the command to love one another. This entire Easter season is a celebration of this command to love one another, as Christ shows us that there is no better way than to lay down your life for the sake of others. We sing of this love in our songs today. Our opening song, “At the Lamb’s High Feast”, speaks of how Christ gives Himself to us entirely in love.

Reflection for the 5th Sunday of Easter - May 2, 2021

We’re now into the 5th week of Easter and yes, we’re still singing Alleluias and celebrating the Resurrection! Yes, our music is still reflecting the Easter season and the Gospel. This week we hear about Christ being the ‘true vine’ and that we are the branches. We sing of these teachings in our offertory and communion songs. Just a reminder for all about the 50 days of Easter – instructions that we are given at Easter:
