A message from our Chaplain Msgr David Cassato

To the Columbiettes Around the World,

“He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” (Matthew 28:6)

During this Holy Week and Easter Sunday, not only do we celebrate the central events of our Roman Catholic Faith, but our hope in the victory of light over darkness, good over evil and life over death. In a world plagued with so much sadness and hatred we must exercise our Faith now more than ever. Just as the Angel proclaimed to Mary Magdalene at Jesus’ empty tomb, be mindful that Christ is alive and in our midst this very day. Trust in Him, follow Him and continue your devoted work in His name to bring the message of Hope, Love and Peace as it is crucially needed today. Look to our Patroness, the Blessed Mother, as a role model of true faith in the highest form; exhibited during her pregnancy, Immaculate Conception and Birth of Jesus and again at the foot of the Cross as she watched him scourged and crucified. May we draw inspiration, strength and re-invigoration of faith from the Miracle of Easter.
I am in Christ, 
Monsignor David Cassato

Pope Francis has declared 2024 as a Year of Prayer, in preparation for the 2025  Jubilee.  The Dicastery for Evangelization has prepared a resource for the year inspired by the teachings of Pope Francis.  The aim is to offer reflections, ideas, and advice to help people to live their dialogue with the Lord more fully in their relationships with others. The guide is made up of sections dedicated to prayer in the parish community, and in the family, with other sections dedicated to young people, cloistered communities, catechesis, and spiritual retreats.

Below are links to downloadable versions of the guide in English and Spanish:

St. Anne - Mother of the Blessed Virgin           

  Feast Day July 26th

Anne, the wife of Joachim, was advanced in years and her prayers for a child had not been answered. Once as she prayed beneath a laurel tree near her home in Galilee, an angel appeared and said to her, "Anne, the Lord hath heard thy prayer and thou shalt conceive and bring forth, and thy seed shall be spoken of in all the world." Anne replied, "As the Lord my God liveth, if I beget either male or female, I will bring it as a gift to the Lord my God; and it shall minister to Him in holy things all the days of its life " And thus Anne became the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
A shrine at Douai, in northern France, was one of the early centers of the devotion. In 1382 her feast was extended to the whole Western Church, and she became very popular, especially in France. Her two most famous shrines are at St. Anne d'Auray in Brittany and at St. Anne-de Beaupre in the province of Quebec.  Her feast day is July 26th.
