St Paul to the Corinthians I

By far, the most popular reading at a Christian wedding is the passage from St Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, in which Paul writes that “Love is patient; love is kind.” When I see that the bride and groom have chosen this passage, I always hope that they’ve included the preceding paragraph.

The Fourth Sunday of Easter offers us the figure of the Good Shepherd who knows his sheep: he calls them, he feeds them and he guides them. For over fifty years the universal Church has celebrated this Sunday as the World Day of Prayer for Vocations.

3rd Easter Sunday (Note & Bulletin)

I have to admit that I use to be a picky eater. It was one of my great fears to be a guest at a person’s house and be offered some exotic food for supper. I remember once, when a child, being offered cow’s tongue and, another time, when in El Salvador, chicken hearts.

Sacramental Celebration

Please keep in your prayers the young people who will be celebrating the Sacraments of Confirmation and the Eucharist in April and May. May the blessing of God’s gifts be profoundly experienced by all of them and their families at this wonderful time and may their faith continue to grow and deepen throughout their lives.
