Change Ahead!

June 27, 2014

Summer’s here, but don’t leave your faith behind when you head out on vacation! To help you make the most of these slower, lazy days, we will be changing up some of our content as we prepare for a whole new look in the fall. Stay tuned for some suggestions from Fr. Cristino on how… Read More ›

Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ

(John 6:51-59) This weekend marks the 750th anniversary of the Catholic Church’s celebration of the Feast of Corpus Christi. Also known as the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, it is the day we set aside to commemorate the institution of the Eucharist by Jesus at the Last Supper. To mark the occasion,… Read More ›

Mysteries of the Trinity

(John 3:16-18) Have you ever wondered what God is like? Scripture tells us that we’ve all been created in God’s image and likeness (Gen 1:26), but have you ever wondered exactly what that means? What does that tell us about ourselves – and more importantly, what does that tell us about God? The Church’s teaching… Read More ›

Spirit of Love – Pentecost Sunday

“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth.” – Acts 1:8 (John 20:19-23) Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to be in the Upper Room… Read More ›

The Ascension of the Lord

(Matthew 28:16-20) Partings are always tough, especially when you have to say goodbye to someone you love and care for. No matter how much we may tell ourselves that it’s for the best, the departure of someone who has been close to us – who has played a big part in our lives – leaves… Read More ›

Power Within Reach

(John 14:15-21) Whenever I read the Gospels, I try to put myself in the scene, to imagine what it would have felt like to be there. Reading today’s Gospel, I couldn’t help but think how confused the disciples must have been by Jesus’ words. I’m sure they wondered how they could possibly continue to see… Read More ›

Room in the Father’s House

(John 14:1-12) Of all the images of heaven, the one presented in today’s Gospel – as a home – is definitely my favourite. Humanly speaking, we want to know what heaven will be like – how it will look and what to expect. It’s hard to wrap your head around some of the abstract ideas… Read More ›

Smelling Like Sheep?

(John 10:1-10) I’m never sure whether I should feel insulted when Jesus refers to His followers as “sheep.” I like to think of myself as being fairly intelligent and a leader, yet sheep aren’t well known for possessing either of these qualities. But if we think about it for a moment, we will see why… Read More ›

Have We Met?

(Luke 24:13-35) Brad Pitt and I have something in common. We both struggle to recognize people. It’s not personal. I once walked right past my Dad at the airport when he turned up wearing a toupee! They have a fancy name for this condition – it’s called ‘prosopagnosia’, or face blindness. What it means is… Read More ›

Divine Mercy Sunday

(John 20:19-31) Each year, we celebrate the Feast of Divine Mercy on the second Sunday of Easter. It is a day to reflect on the incredible love and mercy of God. Established by Pope John Paul II in response to revelations received by St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, he canonized this humble, Polish nun on the… Read More ›
