From the Pastor: Come, Holy Spirit!

by cduesing

Today we celebrate the Feast of Pentecost, the day on which the Holy Spirit was poured out upon the Apostles, the Blessed Mother and the others gathered in the Upper Room. It was 50 days after the Resurrection of Christ on Easter, and nine days after his Ascension. Pentecost is an ongoing reality in the […]

From the Pastor: The Ascension of the Lord

by cduesing

Jesus spent 40 days appearing to his disciples after his Resurrection from the dead. He did not live with them as he had before. At various times, he would appear to them with some kind of instruction. Saint Paul tells us that he appeared to over 500 disciples at one time. At the end of […]

From the Pastor: A Time to Remember

by cduesing

Monday of this week is Memorial Day. It is a time to remember all of the men and women who have died defending our nation in its various wars and conflicts. Jesus taught that, “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” These men and women have lived […]

From the Pastor: Notre Dame Cathedral

by cduesing

Because of Holy Week, we had to have our Easter bulletin to the printer early, so I did not get a chance to comment on the tragic fire at Notre Dame Cathedral. I know that those of you who are long-time members of Mother of God Church were remembering the fire here in 1986, as […]

From the Pastor: He Is Risen! Alleluia!

by cduesing

Without the empty tomb, there is no Christianity. Jesus would be just one more failed, false Messiah who raised the hopes of many and then dashed them. But he did rise from the dead validating everything that he had said and promised. If Jesus had not been raised from the dead, there would have been […]

From the Pastor: Holy Week

by cduesing

Today we begin the most sacred week of the Church’s year–Holy Week. Through the liturgies of this week, especially those that make up the Sacred Triduum, we not only recall the saving events of Christ’s Passion, Death and Resurrection—we enter into those events and become part of them. I hope that as many of you […]
