Get to Know Jesus Through the Liturgical Year

FR. ED BROOM, OMV ORIGINAL PUBLICATION SOURCE Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ becomes alive and visits us, touches us, and enters us through His Mystical Body, the Church! In the most full sense of the word, Jesus becomes alive in us through the Eucharist. All the actions of the Church and the members of the Mystical Body of Christ converge at the source and summit of the Church in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Before ascending into Heaven, Jesus promised His Presence among us with these words: “Go out to all nations and teach them all that I taught you; baptize them in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Behold, I am with you always even until the end of time.” (Mt 28: 19-20) If it is true that Jesus ascended into Heaven and promised that He would be with us always until the end of time, then where is He? The response: He is with us in His Mystical Body, the Church. Specifically, Jesus becomes truly present in the Mass, the Eucharist, and the Sacramental Life. This Sacramental Life of Jesus unfolds every Church Year, Liturgical Year, in the living Liturgical Cycle....

Jesus is alive!

FRIENDS and SERVANTS of the WORD April 18, 2021  EASTER SUNDAY 3 WORD of the DAY  While they were still speaking about this, he stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.” But they were startled and terrified and thought that they were seeing a ghost. Then he said to them, “Why are you troubled? And why do questions arise in your hearts? Look at my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me and see, because a ghost does not have flesh and bones as you can see I have.” And as he said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. While they were still incredulous for joy and were amazed, he asked them, “Have you anything here to eat?” They gave him a piece of baked fish; he took it and ate it in front of them.                            (Luke 24: 36-42) How shall I live this Word?   The bells continue to ring, there remains that suspended, festive atmosphere that gently envelops these days when we heard the Easter announcement ringing again. The strange restlessness of unpublished facts heard about has not subsided. The body of Jesus is not found,...

The Virgin’s Son: Isaiah’s Palm Sunday Prophecy

Palm Sunday has Christ entering into Jerusalem to a lot of fanfare. The people are in the streets to celebrate the coming of the Messiah. They are waving palm branches and spreading out their cloaks on the ground. This was a gesture to show respect and honor to the king. This people, oppressed by an […] Source: The Virgin’s Son: Isaiah’s Palm Sunday...

Bishops revise wording of Trinitarian Formula ending liturgical prayers

A revision to the English-language Roman Missal for use in Canada comes into effect on Ash Wednesday, which changes the wording of the Trinitarian conclusion of the Collect. By Vatican News staff writer The Canadian Bishops Conference (CCCB), in a Decree of implementation issued in December, and following a request from the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacrament, adjusted the English-language wording of the conclusion of the Collect (the opening prayer) in the Roman Missal as approved for use in the country. Beginning from Ash Wednesday, 17 February 2021, the word “one” is to be omitted from the conclusion of the Collect, as well as from other similar prayers in the liturgy, for example, the Blessing of Water at the Easter Vigil. In place of ending with “one God, for ever and ever”, the Collect will now end, “God, for ever and ever.” With this new change, the English version will now be consistent with the Latin text, and conform to translations into other languages, including French which is also an official language of the country. New wording helps to avoid doctrinal confusion The reason for the new wording, as requested by the Congregation for Divine...

Bishop Serratelli: Light a Candle

April 8, 2020 Dear Friends in Christ, In our yearly celebration of Easter, we joyfully mark God’s renewal of his creation and his renewal of our lives through Christ’s victory over sin and death. At the dawn of creation God said: “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:4) and his powerful word made light to guide the crown of his creation, the human person. Jesus Christ is the Light that redeems us and leads us to eternal life. While we will not be able to celebrate all of the beautiful rites of the Easter Vigil this year, such as the blessing of the new fire and the solemn preparation and lighting of the Paschal Candle, we can do something to express our certain hope for the Light of Christ to banish despair. I invite all of the faithful to place a small electric light outside of their home or in their window at sunset on the night before Easter Sunday, the vigil of the Day of Resurrection, to unite our hearts in hope and to express our undying faith in our Risen Lord who is the Light that never will be vanquished. As the electric candle or light is illumined...
