REFLECTION...

St Teresa’s prayer is popular in this adaptation-

Christ has no body now but yours, no hands, no feet on earth but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which he looks with compassion on this world.
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do well.
Yours are the hands with which he blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,
You are his eyes, you are his body.
Christ has no body now but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which he looks with compassion on this world.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.

Jesus speaks in the gospel about being still alive, even after his death. Mostly we find Jesus alive in the love of others. The energy of love that is connected to the energy of God, for God is love. Other times we find God close to us in prayer; but where we can sense him alive mostly is in the ordinary and extraordinary loves of every day, in marriage, family, friendship and care for others.

Many of us do not realise that in this way we have been Christ-bearers. In listening to another, in care of all sorts, in putting ourselves out for the other, in working for justice and for peace the Spirit of God is alive and people are touched by God’s love through the cooperation of ordinary men and women.

IN THE DIOCESE...

IN THE DIOCESE

51st World Communications Day
The message of Pope Francis is entitled: Fear not, for I am with you (Isaiah 43:5): Communicating Hope and Trust in our Time. To be celebrated on May 28, which in Canada is the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord, the Pope expresses his desire “to contribute to the search for an open and creative style of communication that never seeks to glamourize evil, but instead to concentrate on solutions and to inspire a positive and responsible approach on the part of its recipients.”

Patronal Feast Day
Join Archbishop Christian Lépine for the diocesan patronal feast day celebration on Wednesday, May 31, 7:30pm at the Basilica of  Mary Queen of the World. The Ignace-Bourget Diocesan Merit Award, first bestowed in 1979 by Paul Cardinal Grégoire, will be presented during the Mass in recognition of individuals and/or institutions who have served the Church community with generosity, charity and social engagement.
