Marianist schools

Our Marianists schools are alive and well. Yesterday we had another great Faith Friday at Kellenberg Memorial! Prayer, reflection, activities, and stations of the cross throughout the day! Many thanks to our guests Fr. Innocent from the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal and to Jackie Mulligan of Reform Wellness.

Both of our Marianist schools have continued their relationship with the Little Sisters of the Poor at Queen of Peace Residence during the pandemic. During the year our students have collected needed toiletries for the elderly poor. We have also made some wooden templates for reindeers which the elderly assemble for the Christmas season.

The Sunday Word - 3

Resurrection an invitation to see beyond pain, sorrow, and suffering

This Sunday's Gospel recalls a visit Christ made that revealed that he was someone special, someone close to God whose house they were desecrating, and whom he even called his Father. In hidden language he told them that they would put him to death but that that would not be the end, for he would rise again. Some of them seem to have remembered this saying of his after they had put him to death, for they asked Pilate to place a guard on his tomb lest his disciples should remove the body and pretend he had risen for: "we recall," they said, "that this impostor said while he was still living, 'after three days I shall rise again."'  But even the miracle of his resurrection did not affect the majority of them. They had made up their minds and "there are none so blind as those who will not see."

The Sunday Word - 2

1 Corinthians 1:22-25 – deacon rudy's notes

Our second reading for Sunday is from the letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians. In these few lines, St. Paul gives us the basic reasons which motivated opposition to the gospel message on the part of Jews and Gentiles. The Jews because Christ did not fit the preconceived ideas they had formed of the Messiah and the Gentiles because they looked to philosophy or human "wisdom" for the solution of man's problems.

WE take time today to prepare ourselves for the readings from this Sunday's celebration of the Liturgy. In our first reading we see when God had freed the Chosen People from the slavery of Egypt.  He, then, led them to Mount Sinai. There he made a Covenant with the Israelites through which He promised to make them His own people, to lead them into the Promised Land, and to protect them from their enemies there. The Israelites were to reverence Him and Him only as their Lord, and they were to obey the moral and cultic laws which He laid down for them.
