                  Fifth Sunday of Easter

     Happy Mother’s Day

We, as members of Church of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, believe that we are called to minister to all who come through our

Doors.  As good stewards, when we go out, we will take Christ to our local community and to the whole of God’s world.

 

As we as a congregation cannot come together to worship, the following may provide a spiritual comfort during this very challenging time. May the peace of the Lord be with us.  Health and safety to all!

Please continue to keep Fr. Leonardo and his family in your prayers.

 

Mother`s Day Prayer

Lord God, bless our mother`s today with all good things:

health, joy, love, and laughter.

Keep her in your care and protect her from all which is harmful.

                                        And grant her peace and justice all her days. Amen

 

“My very best wishes for God’s abundant blessings to all Mothers.  Happy Mother’s Day.”

---From Fr. Leonardo

“The stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.” (1 Peter 2:7)

Every person has been given gifts from the Holy Spirit. These are called “charisms” and they are used to

build God’s kingdom on earth. While many people are able to recognize their natural talents and

abilities, they may be unsure of their charisms. If you know someone who is struggling for a direction in

life, give them a little encouragement. Help them discern their charisms and how God is calling them to

use them.  Remember - no gift is too small or insignificant in God’s salvation plan.

Pope Francis’ Monthly Prayer Intentions - May

For Deacons

We pray that deacons, faithful in their service to the Word and the poor, may be an invigorating symbol for the entire Church.

https://thepopevideo.org/

 

***********************************************************************************************************************

 

 May is traditionally recognized as the month of Mary.  In our “Church of Our Lady” Parish we have a special connection to our Blessed Mother.  As well, our adjacent school is “St. Mary”.

 

Although we will not be having any public church devotions or procession of flowers by the children, you are encouraged to offer your personal prayers through Mary’s intercession.

In this time of social isolation, as you go on your daily walks or runs or sit quietly in your yards and gardens, consider praying the Rosary.

Social Justice: SHARE LENT

If you’re like me, it’s easy to tuck yourself away in your self-isolation bubble and forget the rest

of the world is still out there. Especially when we are so focused on what is happening daily in

our province and country (and maybe the country to the south), we can forget about others

who depend on our funding.

 

Hopefully, those of us who can, have given to the Food Bank or a similar local organization.

But please remember, too, that our Development and Peace partners, usually funded through

SHARE LENT donations, still need our help! To date less than half of the usual donations have

come into Church of Our Lady. If you missed the collection (I guess we all did!) and have not

yet donated to Development and Peace (and are still able to make a contribution), please

do so! You can drop off your SHARE LENT donation in the church mailbox or mail it to Church of

Our Lady, 566 Vaughan Street, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 6L3 through the Post Office.

  

Thank you for all you have done for others! In every way, our generosity towards others is what

defines us a church and as Christians.

  • Michele Yeager, Church of Our Lady Social Justice
  •  Lest We Forget

This weekend we recognize the 75th anniversary of “V-E Day”, victory in Europe and ultimately the end of World War 11.  We remember the 1.1 million Canadians who served and sacrificed and especially the 45,000 men and women who paid the supreme sacrifice. 

In May 2020, 75 years later, “we will remember them”.

May the departed rest in eternal peace.  And may perpetual light shine upon them.

Thinking Faith 190: Creationism and the Catholic Church - Part 1

Deacon Eric and Dr. Brett begin a multipart series on Creationism and the Catholic Church. Young

earth, old earth, 6 days, billions of years. What does the Church say?

Show Snippet: “Both the fundamentalist and the atheist think that Christians who read and believe the Bible, need to be Creationists...and there’s a deep irony there, that the two groups that agree on that, are the groups that despise each other the most...”
