In these crazy times, I wanted to say 'hi'.   Lots of sacrifices are being made by many people, in many ways.  Well ... it is lent and in days, we'll have Holy Week so I suppose it's fitting.  I'm trying to look on the positive side.  It is giving…Continue

Fasting brings a great blessing and it is a great way to offer sacrifice and reparation. It also helps us to realise what is really important in our lives. Now we should remember that while fasting is very powerful it should always be done as an act…Continue

The Clock of Life

Posted by Carol S Bannon on April 3, 2020 at 7:32am 0 Comments

One of the greatest gifts my mom left me was her faith in God's Will.  During some of my darkest days she would remind me to never lose faith - to just let God take control....to never lose hope  During these days of the coronavirus, NEVER lose sight that He IS in control.

The Clock of Life is wound but once

And no man has the power

To tell just when the hands will stop

At late or early hour

To lose ones wealth is sad indeed

To lose one's health is more.

To lose one's soul is such a loss

That no one can restore.

A Different Kind of Holy Week

Posted by Carol S Bannon on April 3, 2020 at 6:30am 0 Comments


Palm Sunday and Passover approach for millions around the world in less than a week.  For both religions, it is a time of remembrance and thanksgiving to God for his many blessings.  The Jewish people recount their salvation from slavery and Christians recall the triumph of Jesus Christ over death.  As a Jew, Christ was well aware of the significance of this holy time for His people. 


The significance of God's plagues on Egypt is not without its parallels to today's pandemic.  It has changed our families, our work, our children's schooling, and the very practice of our faith.   What we cannot allow the pandemic to do though is to lose our faith in God's mercy.  The fifth Sunday of Lent had as its responsorial refrain:

 'With the Lord there is mercy and fullness of redemption"


Our lives may…

Returning to the church after being away for some years. Something a (non-Catholic) friend said sparked my return, I didn't think it was possible. But I looked it up, and found out that a Catholic cannot be separated from the church. This surprised me. So I called the rectory to find out if I was still registered, even after all this time .... I was, only listed as "inactive." Just like that, they moved me over -- just from my phone call!  I had a strange feeling of "we left the light on for you." But I am also grateful. How many places will do this?

I am the Immaculate Conception

Posted by Tony Rosa on December 5, 2018 at 3:39am 1 Comment

When our Blessed Mother was asked by Bernadette to tell her name, she answered, "I am the Immaculate Conception"; this is the Immaculata's definition of herself (Conference, 26 July 1931). By these luminous words (at Lourdes) she tells us not only that she was immaculate in her conception, but beyond this that she is the Immaculate Conception as such. Some-thing white is one thing; the whiteness of a thing is some-thing else. Something perfect is one thing; the perfection of a thing is something else. When God said to Moses, "I am the one who is," God was telling him: "What is proper to my essence is that I should always be, by my very nature, of myself, with no other principle of being." The Immaculate Virgin, of…
