Don Raimondo Reflects

Tuesday of the 7th Week in ordinary time: to be first, one must be last and servant of all - 22nd May, 2018.

Scripture: 1st Reading: James4,1-10; Resp. Psalm: Ps55,7-11,23; Gosp. Accl.: Gal6,14; Gospel: Mk9,30-37

Jesus tells his Disciples To be first you have to be servant to allToday, we continue the ordinary season of the year, which was interrupted with the beginning of the seasons of Lent and Easter. Having concluded the Easter season with the solemnity of Pentecost, our liturgical year or church year now continues the ordinary season of the year. This will take us through till the solemnity of Christ, the universal king and the season of advent much later in the year.

Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church: "Woman, behold your son" - 21st May, 2018.

Scripture: 1st Reading: Gen3,9-15,20; Resp. Psalm: Ps87,1-2,3,5-7; Gospel: Jn19,25-34

Mary beholds her son JesusThe Son and the Mother. Two hearts full of love for humanity. The Son, true God and true man. The Mother, true daughter and noble flower of Judah, the highest, most privileged of all creatures, but still a creature fashioned by the hands of the Son. A mystery beyond all telling: God in His infinite love, made Himself available by condescending to our state, though without sin.

Homily for Pentecost Sunday Year B – 20th May, 2018

COME, HOLY SPIRIT!!!

PentecostToday is Pentecost day and we celebrate on this day, the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles and also, we celebrate the birthday of the Church. Today marks the 50th day after the resurrection of Christ and this feast equally brings to an end the liturgical season of Easter. The word Pentecost is Greek for pentecostes which means “fiftieth.” The feast received this name because it was celebrated fifty days after the Feast of the Passover.  Another name for the Jewish Pentecost is Shebuot or "The Feast of Weeks“(the "week" of seven Sabbaths between Passover and Pentecost).
