CAM AND OLLIE PDF Print E-mail

.

In the past month, two Assumptionist brothers passed on from this life - Fr. Camillus Thibault and Fr. Oliver Blanchette. Here, Fr. Dennis reflects on the joy and zeal they brought to our lives and their ministries.


Their exchanges across the table at Old English Road were often feisty and sometimes humorous. Cam, whose “filter” was not filtering so well, and Oliver who responded to what he thought he had heard. So they went at it on occasion, these two essentially kind-hearted men, both trying to come to terms with their assorted diminishments.

GOD BLESS THE WORK OF FARMERS! PDF Print E-mail

Living_with_Christ-510

Fr. Bernard Holzer A.A.This time of trial and quarantine remind us of the primordial importance of the work of farmers or peasants: they feed us. They take care of the land and preserve our resources.

Saint Isidore the farmer, their patron, is so popular in the Philippines. He reminds us of the importance of working in the land while praying and helping the poor. In his home, there was always a pot of stew on the fireplace for the hungry.

He encourages us to become saints whatever is our condition in life - Saint Isidore was married to Maria Torribia, they had a boy. Glory to God for his example and for the work of the farmers!

“All of us can cooperate as instruments of God for the care of creation, each according to his or her own culture, experience, involvements and talents.” – Pope Francis, “Laudato Si”, no.14)

Prayer: Loving God, through the intercession of St. Isidore, the farmer, grant that we may overcome all feelings of pride and be generous. Bless all farmers and peasants, and bless their labors so that they may nourish and sustain your people and reap the rewards of work well done, here on earth and in heaven. Amen.

Our Assumptionist communities are praying for you.
Sincerely,
Fr. Bernard Holzer, A. A.

IN MEMORIAM - FR. OLIVER BLANCHETTE A.A. PDF Print E-mail

.

"In green pastures he makes me lie down; to still waters he leads me, goodness and mercy will pursue me all the days of my life; I will dwell in the house of the Lord for endless days." -Psalm 23

Let us pray for the eternal rest of Fr. Oliver Blanchette, A.A. who passed from this life early this morning, may he enter into the peace of the Risen Lord, to whom he gave his life.

After meeting Fr. Oliver in 2016, our Superior General wrote: "it is clear to me that you have not lost the fire and love of God that have characterized your many years of ministry...you have constantly responded to the call for renewal in your life and have always sought new ways to minister to the People of God." We thank God for the gift of knowing and learning from such an inspiring man.
