REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READINGS - Faith and Believing
The verses that make up the Gospel text today may be seen to be divided into four parts, all of which are interconnected. The first of these is the appearance of the Risen Christ to His disciples and in the second His commission to them follows. The third is the appearance of the Risen Christ to the disciples when Thomas is present. The final part is the comments made by the evangelist. The overarching theme of the readings is that, as today’s second reading tells us Jesus is the beginning and the end, the first and the last. He who was dead is alive forever and it is He who holds the keys of the kingdom. It is the same Lord who gave Peter and the first disciples the power to heal and make whole; the same Lord who gave Peter and the disciples the power to reach out in love; the same Lord who gave Peter and the disciples the power to make Him manifest in their every word and action so that others will be brought to believe. How will your belief in the Living Lord show itself in action?
OUR FOUR CEMETERIES
Cemetery Maintenance - At the Annual General meeting (March 2018) a motion was passed stating that a maintenance fee of $50.00 (minimum amount) per year be established in our four parishes. This fee is payable to the parish cemetery where your loved one is buried. It can be placed in the Cemetery Envelope from your box of collection envelopes or placed in an envelope marked “Cemetery” at any time during the year and can be paid in installments. This contribution is used for the upkeep of the parish cemetery. Thanking you in advance for your support. Please note: Cemeteries are the property of The Catholic Episcopal Corporation of Antigonish.
