Moving Forward with Hearts of Mercy

Thursday, November 3, 2016 Written by

Sunday, November 20th will mark the conclusion of the Church’s Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy. Pope Francis will close the ceremonial Holy Doors at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome as the last act of that year. Here at the Cathedral of the Holy Family in Saskatoon, our Holy Doors will close one week earlier on Sunday, November 13th.

Does this mean that God’s mercy towards us ends on November 20th? Or that starting on the 21st we can stop being merciful to others? Obviously that is not the case. The Year of Mercy has been a way to highlight the importance of mercy in our lives and bring it to the forefront of our consciousness.

Pentecost Sunday Homily

Bishop Donald Bolen
 

A great joy burst forth in the early Church at Pentecost. It was not enough that God should take flesh, to come to where we are as one of us; not enough that the Incarnate Word should give himself fully to us on the cross, revealing a boundless love; not enough that he should be raised from the tomb, a lasting sign of God’s power to bring life from death; not enough that we should experience his Risen presence, summoning us to a future with hope. At Pentecost the Church learned that God wanted to be with us always, through the Holy Spirit, a guide, an indwelling presence, a bearer of unity and peace, love and joy.

Since that Spirit dwells not only in the early Church but is also active in us in our day, we should by all rights be filled with a deep paschal joy. And we are, but I think, like most Christians, there is significant room for growth in our coming to live in joy. Part of the challenge comes from the way in which the early Church experienced the Holy Spirit, as recorded in the Acts of the Apostles. The presence of the Spirit was tangible, palpable, in their lives, as they were guided by the Spirit, given words to speak, courage to endure hardship, and the grace to share themselves fully in strengthening and building up the community in the name of Christ. We often sense a gap between our experience of the Holy Spirit and theirs.

And so we ask: Where do we sense the Spirit? What are signs of the Spirit’s presence? What gives us the courage to believe that the Holy Spirit is operative in our lives, and allows us to rejoice this day with full hearts, not feeling like half disciples, but like a community fully empowered by the Spirit? Here are ten ways in which we might look for the presence of the Spirit. There are many many other ways that the Spirit is present in our lives and communities, and you might do well to come up with your own lists too....  

It All Began with a Question...

Friday, December 18, 2015 Written by

It all began with a question: Fr. David asked,“What’s your favourite Christmas Carol?” and from there, it grew into a Top 5 list for both favourite Christmas carols and favourite Christmas TV shows and movies. Interesting enough, not everything listed below is Christmassy (I’m not even sure that’s a word…), some appear to be shows our staff members will get to binge-watch while on Christmas break (Thank you, Lord for Netflix. Amen). Please enjoy our Top 5 lists…
