Today is Pentecost Sunday. Today we celebrate the birth of the Church. As we read today from our friends at Magnificat magazine: "The Holy Spirit, the fire of God's love, descends upon the Church, the Body of Christ, to raise us to everlasting life in Christ, and thus brings to completion the work of creation and of the Incarnation of God's Word. In this mystery of the Church's beginning lies our promised end." For more about this day, please click on the image. Peace be with you!
Today, the Fourth Sunday of Easter, is known as "Good Shepherd Sunday". In the Mass Gospel reading today, taken from John's tenth chapter, we hear, "I am the good shepherd.

Today is Easter Sunday, the most glorious day on the Christian calendar. For today we celebrate God's faithfulness, for what he promised he has brought to fulfillment: Christ, our paschal lamb, has been sacrificed and he has truly risen from the dead. It is the truth of this day, the truth of Jesus Christ, our Risen Lord, that we Christians stake our whole lives, for in Christ's rising from the dead we have a share in eternal salvation - thanks be to God!

From a Holy Saturday Divine Office hymn we hear: "His cross stands empty in a world grown silent through hours of anguish and of dread; in stillness, earth awaits the Resurrection while Christ goes down to wake the dead." There is a stillness today, on this Holy Saturday, as we mourn the events of Good Friday and await the joy we celebrate Easter morning. For more about this day please click on the image.
