Thank you to our Children

 

God Bless the children and may God also bless those who teach them to sing and participate in our Sunday youth mass.

Today we would like to, as a church community, say a special thank you to all the children and teenagers who have taken part in our monthly Sunday youth masses.

To the choir, the readers, the greeters, the little ones bringing up the offerings, the altar servers, the ones doing the collection and of course our young musicians.

As we go into the second half of the year, we just want to let you know that all you do is greatly appreciated. It’s so nice to hear the voices of the little children. So again from the bottom of our heart … Thank You.!!

But please allow me to also express our gratitude to our musicians, Mary Lafleur and Lise Dumouchel for their countless hours of practicing with the children. And of course to Claudette Gravelle,  who is instrumental in putting the entire choir together…Thank you from all of us here.

Let us see the work of the good Lord in them and hopefully it will inspire us to answer to God’s call in a similar way.

Thanks to all and may God Bless and keep you healthy and safe to continue to do his work.

Thought of the week

The law of love

This is my commandment: love one Reviews another, as I have loved you. (John 15: 12). In connection with the law of love, here’s a story I read recently: A newspaper told the story of a boy with cancer. He had lost his hair during chemotherapy. As a sign of sympathy and support, all his classmates had shaved their heads so that it he was not embarrassed when he returned. The newspaper showed a picture of the children with shaved head, with the title: “Everything we do, we do it together.” Wooowwww!
With his law of love, Jesus fixes two other laws which were in force before him: a) the law of vengeance and b) the law of retribution: do to your enemy exactly like he did you. What has been called ‘eye for eye and tooth for tooth “(Leviticus 24, 20)
Jesus introduces a third way: the law of love. No more vengeance, more than a quick succession, but choose to forgive to love. If there are people you have not forgiven, the law of love invites you to offer your forgiveness. By forgiving, you release but mostly you free yourself of the burden that prevents you from love.
Have a good week.

Thought of the week

Thought of the week: My daughter, do not cry!

Every time I celebrate a funeral and I see people crying for the one who left this world, a sadness invades my heart. And often, I go over these words of Jesus: ‘Do not cry.’ (Lk 7:13).
The story takes place in a small town called Naïn. One lady, after losing her husband, now widowed, she was left with her son, her only son. And then he also dies. Faced with this tragedy, tears streaming down her cheeks. And many wondered: why her? She had already lost her husband and now her son, her only son that they are taking to the cemetery. Why Lord? Why? That’s when the procession of Jesus arrives. When the Lord saw the widow, he felt sorry for her and said to her, ‘Don’t cry.’ Then he went up and touched the bier and the bearers stood still, and he said: ‘Young man, I tell you: get up. And the dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him to his mother’ (Lk 7: 13-15). To you too, Jesus says today, ‘Do not cry. He knows your pain, he knows why you cry and he is not indifferent to your misery. You who has lost a loved one, do not cry anymore. You whose love is betrayed, not cry anymore. You who the whole world rejects and will not accept, because of your faith, do not cry anymore. You who lives in difficult times, no more crying. You who are humbled all the time, do not cry anymore. No, really, I say to you, do not cry! God is with you. He heard your cry. He just put his hand on your suffering and what appears to be dead inside you. God loves you!
Have a good week

Pensée de la semaine

Ma fille, ne pleure plus !

Chaque fois que je célèbre des funérailles et que je vois des gens pleurer un des leurs qui a quitté ce monde, une tristesse envahit mon cœur. Et souvent, je reprends en moi ces paroles de Jésus: ‘Ne pleure plus.’ (Lc. 7:13). L’histoire se passe dans une petite ville appelée Naïn. Une dame, après avoir perdu son mari, devenue veuve, il ne lui restait plus que son garçon, son fils unique. Et voilà que celui-ci aussi meurt. Devant une telle tragédie, les larmes coulaient sur ses joues. Et beaucoup se demandaient: pourquoi elle ? Elle avait déjà perdu son mari et maintenant c’est son fils, son unique fils qu’on amène au cimetière. Pourquoi Seigneur ? Pourquoi ? C’est à ce moment que le cortège de Jésus arrive. En voyant la veuve, Jésus fut pris de pitié et lui dit: ‘Ne pleure plus.’ il s’avança et toucha le cercueil et dit: ‘Jeune homme, je te l’ordonne, réveille-toi. Alors le mort s’assit et se mit à parler’ (Lc. 7,13-14). A toi aussi, Jésus dit aujourd’hui: ‘Ne pleure plus’. Il connait ta souffrance, il sait pourquoi tu pleures et il n’est pas indifférent à ta misère. Toi qui a perdu un être cher, ne pleure plus. Toi dont l’amour est trahi, ne pleure plus. Toi que tout monde rejette et n’accepte pas, à cause de ta foi, ne pleure plus. Toi qui vis des temps difficiles, ne pleure plus. Toi qui es tout le temps humilié, ne pleure plus. Non, vraiment, je te le dis: ne pleure plus ! Dieu est avec toi. Il a entendu ton cri. Il vient poser sa main sur ta souffrance et sur ce qui semble mort en toi. Dieu t’aime !
Bonne semaine

Thought of the week

Jesus can change your failures to victory

“Master, we worked hard all night long and caught nothing, but if you say so, I will pay out the nets. And when they had done this they netted such a huge number of fish that their nets began to tear” Lk 5:4.6
The disciples have worked hard all night and caught no fish. Finally, when they obeyed Jesus, everything changed. The same lake, the same boat, the same nets, the same men who had nothing caught the day before, they suddenly become heroes. Everything has changed. What made the difference? Obedience to the Word of the Master. Obedience to Jesus produced a miracle. Now Jesus is the same yesterday today and forever. It can do exactly the same for you. All that was unsuccessful in your life can begin to bear fruit.
Our public enemy number one, is doubt that prevents us from believing that from the ashes of our failures, Jesus can build something wonderful.
Have a good week

Thought of the week

FORGINENESS

“Forgive us our trespasses, as we also forgive those who trespass against us.” Mt. 6.12
What to do before an offense. Remain attached to evil or forgive in order to be rid of it? In the prayer of Our Father the solution we suggest is to forgive, because we ourselves are in need of God’s forgiveness. Do not forgive it’s a bit like drinking poison and believe that it will hurt someone else. Even if the offense is considerable, forgiveness is the best choice. One frees oneself first and frees those who committed this evil. Forgiveness is never easy. Let us ask God for strength to do the right choice.
Have a Good week.
