IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

A few weeks ago, Fr. Albanus announced that our new spiritual leader for the four parishes (St. Aloysius, St. Columban, St. Malachy and Our Lady of Victory) will be Rev. Gregory Murray of the Congregation of the Sacred Heart. Fr. Murray is presently living in Montreal and will arrive in our diocese to celebrate the four masses of July 3 rd and 4 th.

In the interim, Archbishop Paul-André Durocher has indicated that he will celebrate the four masses for June 19th and 20th and Fr. Bill Marrevee will celebrate the four masses for the following weekend of June 26th and 27th.

Fr. Albanus has asked that we pray for him as he ventures home to the welcoming arms of his family. Also, that his country abandons their arms and finds peace once again. Safe journey home Father and you will always be in our prayers.




Fr. Albanus’ Reflections on the Sunday Liturgy - 13 June 2021
First Reading:
Psalm:
Second Reading:
Gospel:
Ezekiel 17.22-24
Lord, it is good to give thanks to you
2 Corinthians 5.6-10
Mark 4.16-34

When I don’t produce the results I desire, it is very easy to feel I have failed. No matter where I find myself in life, every day presents new tasks and challenges.

Today’s readings remind us that by doing our best, we have succeeded in God’s eyes. We are seeds. In striving to please the Lord we continue to grow. The reading from the book of Ezekiel details how God plants the tree on the mountain, giving it life. As with the tree, He has given each of us a life and everything that stems from it.

The second Letter to the Corinthians tells us to please Him, because this demonstrates gratitude for one’s life. As the mustard seed of the parable demonstrates, even the smallest seed has the capacity to grow into the largest shrub.

God works through each of us in ways we can’t even imagine. By doing our best, we have pleased God; we have not failed.
