Easter Sunday Message

Resurrexi, et adhuc tecum sum. Alleluia! – I have risen, I am still with you. Alleluia! Dear Brothers and sisters, Jesus, crucified and risen, repeats this joyful proclamation to us today: the Easter proclamation. Let us welcome it with deep wonder and gratitude! Resurrexi et adhuc tecum sum – I have risen, I am still with you, for ever. These words, taken from an ancient version of Psalm 138 (v 18b), were sung at the beginning of today’s Mass. In them, at the rising of the Easter Sun, the Church recognizes the voce of Jesus himself who, on rising from death, turns to the Father filled with gladness and love, and exclaims: My Father, here I am! I have risen, I am still with you, and so I shall be for ever; your Spirit never abandoned me… These words...

Palm Sunday

5 April 2009 Gospel: Marck 11: 1-10 (Procession) Some days before the feast of Passover, Jesus and His disciples went up to Jerusalem …. Some days before the feast of Passover …. It is the last time that You go up to Jerusalem. Your “Hour” has come, the hour of Your Passover, of Your passage from this world to the Father (Jn. 13:11). You know that it is through suffering and death that this passage will be made, that for every son of man, for each one of us. And You know also how Your disciples will be disconcerted by Your unexpected, quick, and sad departure. So You will prepare them for this test, to help them to see the other side: Your victory over death. Jesus and His disciples went up to Jerusalem …. Jerusalem is the city...

A letter to our European SSS Confreres

Greetings from the brethren in Dublin. On January 6th this year of Our Lord 2009, we entered in to our 39th. year of Eucharistic ministry to the people of Dublin and to the many tourist, and Irish people who visit this capital city. D’OLIER STREET: For 25 years our ministry was conducted in a building which was formerly a fish restaurant – from a place that served sole to one that served souls, the People of God. In those early years we were part of the American province and had American priests serving in the Chapel and it was known as “the American Chapel” It was very popular with the local office workers and shoppers, who appreciated the more welcoming style of celebration that these early priests fostered. The Catholic faith of Ireland was very strong and a keen...

Fifth Sunday of Lent

29 March 2009 Gospel: John 12: 20-33 We would like to see Jesus … These are strangers, pagans, who have gone up to Jerusalem and speak like this.  They are seeking the light since they are there to adore God.  They had heard about You, Lord.  They want to see You…. Put this same desire in our hearts, Lord! Put it in all hearts!   To believe more in You every day!  To see You … and to follow You…. Because it is You Who are the Light Which illumines all mankind (Jn. 1:9).  It is You Who are the only Way Which leads us to the Father (Jn. 14:6).  It is You Who are the Gate which lets the sheep enter the sheepfold (Jn. 10:9). Philip and Andrew went to tell Jesus… They have already been intermediaries to...
