Father Mario’s Message May 14 – 2020

“Holy God, you compare your own love for your people to the love of a mother for her children. Look with kindness on these mothers, give them comfort in moments of sorrow, and joy in their work for their families. Listen to their prayers and bless + them in...

Holy Name Cares

We will continue to provide our much-needed emergency 3-day food hampers as long as we have food available, and strive to do so in the safest manner possible, observing all Alberta Health Service guidelines in our pantry and for our volunteers and clients. We ask for your ongoing support through monetary donations, which will receive a tax receipt. We hope that when this passes, we will be able to share in the bounty of your pantries of unused food supplies. In the interim, please offer up your prayers of support for our ministry and those most vulnerable to or already affected by the Covid-19 virus.

Reflection

August 2nd – 2020

Jesus reached the shores of the Sea of Galilee, and he went up into the hills. He sat there, and large crowds came to him bringing the lame, the crippled, the blind, the dumb and many others; these they put down at his feet, and he cured them. The crowds were astonished to see the dumb speaking, the cripples whole again, the lame walking and the blind with their sight, and they praised the God of Israel....

In this way, he has successfully teased out both the literal and the spiritual meanings of the word of God.”...

We can be confident because the Word of God is a creative word, destined to become the “full grain in the ear” (v. 28). This Word, if accepted, certainly bears fruit, for God Himself makes it sprout and grow in ways that we cannot always verify or understand. (cf. v. 27). All this tells us that it is always God, it is always God who makes his Kingdom grow. That is why we fervently pray “thy Kingdom come”. It is He who makes it grow. Man is his humble collaborator, who contemplates and rejoices in divine creative action and waits patiently for its fruits....
