Thought of the week

by Father GhislainNdondji OFM

You can always count on God

When everything is not well, when all seems unable function, there is always something to do: trust God. A friend of mine told me that a few years ago, that unfortunate events have come and gone in his life: the death of both his parents in a traffic accident. A year later, he was separated from his wife. The following year, he lost his job and immediately after, as if all this were not enough, his only child died, a 19 year old girl. Everything was going wrong for him. In his distress, he fell on the words of the Bible: “How long, Yahweh, will you forget me? For ever? How long will you turn away your face from me? How long must I nurse rebellion in my soul, sorrow in my heart day and night? (…) As for me, I trust in your faithful love, Yahweh. Let my heart delight in your saving help, let me sing to Yahweh for his generosity to me, let me sing to the name of Yahweh the Most High!” (Ps.13, 2.6). He told me that inspired Word has helped him count now about God. You also despite what you live, you can count on God.

Thought of the week

by Father GhislainNdondji OFM

In difficult times, have you ever had to ask where is God? Have you ever had that feeling that God is far from you, and he would be several thousand miles away? Often we feel that when we are going through a difficult time. Yet, regardless of the situation you are going through, regardless of the battle you are leading now, rest assured of one thing, you are never alone, God is with you. This was also the case of the disciples of Emmaus (cf. Lk. 24, 13-35). Often our sorrows prevent us from seeing God. Maybe you have been struck by misfortune: the loss of a loved one, loss of your job, health problems, a difficult relationship, a breakup. Maybe because of your grief, you have not seen God by your side. Rest assured, he was there and he is always there with you. He whispers in your ear: ‘I love you.’ Even when you do not see it, it is there, present, acting alongside you. Ask him then to reveal himself to you.

 URGENT APPEAL FOR PRAYERS - The Pope has invited everyone to raise up with one voice a ceaseless prayer for an end to the dramatic situation of the peoples in the north of Iraq, in particular the plight of the Christian Communities in that region. In the Angelus prayer of July 20, the Pope said, “May the God of Peace create in all an authentic desire for dialogue and reconciliation. Violence is not conquered with violence. Violence is conquered with peace! Let us pray in silence, asking for peace; everyone, in silence… Mary Queen of peace, pray for us!”

CCCB issues appeal for mercy, compassion and justice in the Middle East and throughout the world

The Executive Committee of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has issued an appeal “for mercy, compassion and justice in the Middle East and throughout the world”. The text was approved at the Executive’s meeting earlier this week on August 25, 2014. In its message, the Executive states: “As followers of the Crucified One, we recognize particularly in the Middle East the sufferings of our own brothers and sisters in faith. Moved by their pains and afflictions, we make their cause our own. We are united with them in solidarity and faith.” The appeal is addressed “to all people – of every faith and in the name of good will, here in Canada and around the world – to do even more to assist the suffering of those in need.”

APPEL URGENT À LA PRIÈRE – Le pape a invité tout le monde à relever d’une seule voix une prière incessante pour mettre fin à la situation dramatique des populations dans le nord de l’Irak, en particulier le sort des communautés chrétiennes dans cette région. Dans la prière de l’Angélus du 20 juillet, le Pape a dit: “Que le Dieu de paix crée dans tous un authentique désir de dialogue et de réconciliation. La violence n’est pas conquise par la violence. La violence est conquise par la paix! Prions en silence, demandons la paix pour tout le monde, dans le silence… Marie Reine de la paix, priez pour nous!”

La CECC lance un appel à la miséricorde, à la compassion et à la justice au Moyen-Orient et partout dans le monde

Le Bureau de direction de la Conférence des évêques catholiques du Canada (CECC) a publié un appel « à la miséricorde, à la compassion et à la justice au Moyen-Orient et partout dans le monde ». Le texte a été approuvé au début de la semaine, le 25 août 2014, lors de la réunion du Bureau de direction. Dans son message, le Bureau de direction écrit : « Disciples du Crucifié, nous reconnaissons, au Moyen-Orient notamment, les souffrances de nos sœurs et de nos frères dans la foi. Touchés par leurs peines et leur affliction, nous voulons faire nôtre leur cause. Nous nous unissons à eux dans la solidarité et dans la foi. » L’appel est adressé à « chacune et chacun – de toutes les confessionnalités et de bonne volonté, ici au Canada et partout dans le monde – à faire encore davantage pour soulager la souffrance de ceux et celles dans le besoin. »

God is Love

God is Love. Thats was evident at our “Celebration of Love” held on Aug 24, 2014. The church was filled with family and friends as 20 couples celebrated their jubiliee anniversary.

DSC_0017

For some it was a 5 year milestone and others as much as 63 wonderful years ( in fact we had 2 couples celebrating 63) together as Father Ghislain presided the Sunday Mass and delivered a touching homily.

(Click on the pictures to enlarge them)

Many thanks to Rachel & Maurice (Sam) St-Pierre for sharing their words of wisdom, both very heartfelt and at times humorous, on their successful journey of married life. A quote from Rachel was “I took my vows very seriously and I still do today, as we are going to celebrate our 53rd  anniversary. And of course communication and prayer are also a very big part of our success and love for each other”.  Their testimony touched the hearts of many.

Father Ghislain and Father Francis celebrated the mass together.
Thanks to Father Francis for honoring us with his presence.

Thanks to the Choir and  Claudette, Mary and Lise from their touching songs as they helped us to thank and pray to God for the Love felt by many that day. Singing is praying twice.

Father Ghislain, we can’t say enough about his dedication to the Lord and as he puts it… “I speak many languages but I only understand one…that is Love”. He demonstrated in his homily the ways Love is apparent both with a song and a testimony and of course the blessing of the couples.
DSC_0045

The meal served right after the celebration was a success!

Thanks to ALL who volunteered in any way, to those who donated in any way and to the couples for their dedication of love that makes this kind a celebration a pleasure and tradition that will continue in our parish.

And finally, from the hearts of the Liturgy committee, this event was truly a fellowship event that was fun to organize (a lot of work) but a great team building exercise and we are proud to have been part of this special day.

Amen
