Holy Communion: Any one who is shut-in and wishes to receive the Holy Eucharist, please let us know. If you have a loved one who is sick and needs our prayers, and would like to insert their name in the bulletin, kindly contact the office.



“Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them and they all drank from it.” – Mark 14:23
Jesus, the perfect steward, gave thanks, just before he gave himself to us completely for our salvation. He offers us the chance to drink from his cup. In the Eucharist, we meet Christ personally and, if we listen to him, we know that drinking from his cup means our own sacrifice – giving up some of our time, talent, and treasure to do his work on earth.

Article 8 I Believe In The Holy Spirit
687 “No one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.”7 Now God’s Spirit, who reveals God, makes known to us Christ, his Word, his living Utterance, but the Spirit does not speak of himself. The Spirit who “has spoken through the prophets” makes us hear the Father’s Word, but we do not hear the Spirit himself. We know him only in the movement by which he reveals the Word to us and disposes us to welcome him in faith. The Spirit of truth who “unveils” Christ to us “will not speak on his own.”8 Such properly divine self-effacement explains why “the world cannot receive [him], because it neither sees him nor knows him,” while those who believe in Christ know the Spirit because he dwells with them.9
688 The Church, a communion living in the faith of the apostles which she transmits, is the place where we know the Holy Spirit:
– in the Scriptures he inspired;
– in the Tradition, to which the Church Fathers are always timely witnesses;
– in the Church’s Magisterium, which he assists;
– in the sacramental liturgy, through its words and symbols, in which the Holy Spirit puts us into communion with Christ;
– in prayer, wherein he intercedes for us;
– in the charisms and ministries by which the Church is built up;
– in the signs of apostolic and missionary life;
– in the witness of saints through whom he manifests his holiness and continues the work of salvation.
I. The Joint Mission of the Son and the Spirit
689 The One whom the Father has sent into our hearts, the Spirit of his Son, is truly God.10
Consubstantial with the Father and the Son, the Spirit is inseparable from them, in both the inner life of the Trinity and his gift of love for the world. In adoring the Holy Trinity, life-giving, consubstantial, and indivisible, the Church’s faith also professes the distinction of persons. When the Father sends his Word, he always sends his Breath. In their joint mission, the Son and the Holy Spirit are distinct but inseparable. To be sure, it is Christ who is seen, the visible image of the invisible God, but it is the Spirit who reveals him.

Feast of Corpus Christi
Both in salvation history and in the liturgical cycle, God continually proves his love for us: at Easter we celebrated God’s supreme mercy and love towards us through the Resurrection; at Pentecost we prepared for the arrival of the Holy Spirit who will be “with [us] to the end of the age” (Matt 28:20); last Sunday we celebrated how this arrival of the Holy Spirit reveals that the One God is a Trinity. How fitting that this Sunday, the Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, we celebrate how God invites us to enter directly into the life of the Trinity–the life of God Himself–through the Eucharist! By eating the Body of Christ, our own fragile bodies are becoming intimately connected with the risen Christ,” and prepared to enter the divine life (Mons. Francis Kelly, L’Osservatore Romano, Jun 2, 2010, p.6). Through Jesus’ birth, life, death, and Resurrection, the human body has become part of the life of God. Our Sunday celebration, and indeed every Mass, is a reminder of the core purpose of our Faith: to enter the divine life. When I am united to the Body of Christ, I also come to know the dignity of my own human body. I am not a soul trapped in flesh, but a unity of Body and Spirit where God wishes to dwell. When we live with respect and care for our bodies, God’s glory is shown forth in us. Taking care of our own bodies and those of others is a truly spiritual act, leading us closer to Heaven. May Our Lady of Mercy teach us how to hold the Body of Christ within ourselves as she was blessed to hold the Child Jesus in her arms.


Informal session starts immediately after the 9:00 a.m. mass, from 10:00 – 10:30 a.m., in the church basement. This will be an opportunity to ask questions about the Mass and its rituals, the Church and living life as a Catholic. These sessions will continue every Sunday, as long as there is interest, until our formal Rite of Christian Initiation of Adult (RCIA) classes begin in September. We will be seated in the front few pews on the far right side of the church during the 9:00 a.m. mass, as usual. Please feel fee to email, or call Valder at 604.861.9774, if you have any questions.
