EASTER SUNDAY PDF Print E-mail

.Greetings at Easter from the Assumptionists in the North American Province. Happy Easter!

Easter is the exclamation point, the definitive affirmation of the life shining forth from the Gospel accounts of Jesus. It gives the stamp of approval, the AMEN to a life given over to the humble service of others. In our world of bluster and self-promotion, Easter shows us the way to becoming more generous and more joyful. May its power insinuate itself into our hearts.

-Father Dennis Gallagher, A.A.

PROVINCIAL POST - FR. DENNIS GALLAGHER. A.A. PDF Print E-mail

.

It’s clear that the early Christian community was shaken to the core by what Judas did. It’s one thing to deal with opposition from without - the religious and political authorities of the day. It’s another thing to see that the hour of darkness is precipitated by one of their own, a man in whom the Master had confided the mysteries of the kingdom. Nothing is quite so damaging to the trust upon which all human communities must rely.

Thus the drama enacted around the table. “One of you is about to betray me.” Jesus says. One after the other, each of the twelve responds, “Surely it is not I, Lord.” Everything depends on the tone of that response. How do they speak these words? Are they men full of indignation that such a thing could happen in their ranks and exonerating themselves in the process? “SURELY, it is not I, Lord!” Far be it from me to do such a thing! Or do they speak the words more haltingly, perhaps with trembling in their voices, “Surely, it is not I, Lord??” Instead of keeping the possibility of betraying Jesus at arm’s length (how scandalous!), they speak as men chastened by their own weakness and not presuming on their strength.

LATEST NEWS FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY by Fr. Barry Bercier, A.A. PDF Print E-mail

Fr. Barry Bercier, A.A.

Newsnote from Barry (this past Monday)

The past two days the wind has been blowing fiercely, so wind chill was 51 below zero. Yesterday we buried the ashes of a woman from here who was murdered by her own daughter while they were living in Ottawa.  It took a month or more to find her body—it had been carried off with the garbage to a huge  Ottawa landfill.  And then, once it was found, there was the forensic work that had to be done.  This week the ashes finally arrived.

After the church service, people piled onto pickup trucks or hopped on skimobiles or four wheelers and headed up to the cemetery.  The cemetery here is on a ridge overlooking the town and the frozen sea.  Blowing snow bright in the sunlight streamed across the ground, sped past our feet, on through the rows of white wooden crosses,  then off the ridge and out over the town.  Everything was swirling, dazzling white, unearthly.  And howling along with the wind was the grieving family.
