30th Sunday (Note & Bulletin)

When I was making my retreat while in the Philippines before coming to Lourdes, I remember one day I was given a reading to pray in which God seemed mad. I found it difficult to believe that indeed God was mad or angry, so I tried to explain it away when I met with the Retreat Director. He was not convinced with my attempt to explain God‘s anger away.

28th Sunday (Note & Bulletin)

On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a fest of well-aged wines... This is the Lord for whom we have waited; let us be glad and rejoice in God’s salvation. This weekend, we join with other Canadians in giving thanks for the blessings we receive. Gratitude is probably the "biggest" of the virtues – it takes up a lot of space!
