From the Pastor's Desk
Dear parishioners,

I hope and pray that you are staying healthy – both physically and spiritually. Please let me know if the parish can help you during these difficult times.

No doubt you are aware that our parish relies on the support of our parishioners to operate – parish salaries, programs and ongoing operating costs (heating, water, electricity, etc.) – are funded through the generosity of our parish community. It will be a challenge for our parish to maintain operations without the weekly offertory collection.

In response to many requests that I have received from parishioners, here are the ways that you can continue to support our parish at this time:

- Drop off or mail your regular weekly offertory contribution to the parish office.

- Contribute to our parish offertory by credit card. Please click here. You will then be able to select our parish in the drop-down menu. You can make a one time or recurring contribution to our parish offertory or other special funds.

- Contribute through pre-authorized giving. Click here for more information on pre-authorized giving. You can obtain a form from the parish office or you can click here to download an enrollment form which can be printed and completed. Return the completed form and a voided cheque to your parish office. Or e-mail the form and a scanned copy or photo of a voided cheque to development@archtoronto.org for processing. Contributions are withdrawn from your bank account on the 20th of each month.

- You can contribute to the offertory via online banking. To do this, the archdiocese will need to send you a unique account number. Please send an e-mail to campaign@archtoronto.org. In the body of the email provide:

   * Your name
   * Address
   * Parish name
   * Municipality

You will be emailed account information which you can use to set up the Archdiocese of Toronto as a payee in your on-line banking. Your gift will be forwarded to our parish. You can make a one time or recurring gift to our offertory.

If you have any questions please contact the Development Office at the Archdiocese of Toronto, 416-934-3400, ext. 540 or development@archtoronto.org.

Thank you for your many contributions to our parish community. I miss seeing all of you at the Mass and I pray daily that we will be able to gather together again soon.

Yours in Christ,
Fr. Xavier de Pinto

    Reflections

    for Sunday, March 20, 2016

    The Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ gives us the account of the last events before His death on the Cross. The first reading today is always from the Prophet Isaiah. This reading shows us that even before Christ, holy people could begin to understand that someone could give His life for others and accept suffering for others. The challenge for us who believe in Jesus is always the same: am I willing to suffer so that others will not suffer or will not suffer so much?

    The second reading is from the Letter to the Philippians and teaches us the same lesson, adding that God is even willing to take on our humanity, to suffer with us and for us�and ultimately willing to die so that we might live. Are we willing to die so that others might live?

    Then we return to the Passion of Jesus, this year from the Gospel of Saint Luke. How terrible it is to watch a person die in agony! How much worse when it is a person who is being killed or murdered by others who mistreat Him! Most of us never have to see the reality of someone being put to death, yet even today people are being killed and murdered in the name of God. We need to united our awareness of Christ with the awareness of so many people in our world today who suffer because they believe, who died because they believe�who are more willing to die for their faith than to renounce their faith.

    In the midst of suffering, perhaps we can finally understand that there is a God who loves us so very much! God is willing to become one of us and die as one of us so that we might live. The challenge for all of us is so simple: do I want to live? Do I want to follow the way of the Lord? Living will cost me my life. Let us walk with the Lord!

     
    Readings of the day:
    First Reading: Isaiah 50.4-7
    Second Reading: Philippians 2.6-11
    Gospel: Luke 22.14 – 23.56

    Homily from Abbot Philip, OSB, of the Benedictine Abbey of Christ in the Desert.
