FROM THE PULPIT-PENTECOST SUNDAY

PENTECOST SUNDAY

Gospel
JN 20:19-23

On the evening of that first day of the week,
when the doors were locked, where the disciples were,
for fear of the Jews,
Jesus came and stood in their midst
and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side.
The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you.
As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them,
“Receive the Holy Spirit.
Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them,
and whose sins you retain are retained.”

 

Bishop Robert Guglielmone has given his approval for the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Fatima to visit parishes throughout the South Carolina from April 30 - May 21, 2016.

Fatima, Portugal, Our Lady’s

messages are more urgent than ever.

JUBILEE YEAR OF MERCY

Dec. 8, 2015 - Nov. 20, 2016

 

AFTER THE CONFESSION, I MEDITATED ON JESUS’ TERRIBLE PASSION

Diary 654

 

After the confession, I meditated on Jesus' terrible Passion, and I understood that what I was suffering was nothing compared to the Savior's

Passion, and that even the smallest imperfection was the cause of this

terrible suffering. Then my soul was filled with very great contrition, and only then I sensed that I was in the sea of the unfathomable mercy of God.
