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 Contributions are withdrawn from your bank account on the 20th of each month.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, June 25, 2017

    "Fear no one." - The words of Jesus from today's Gospel according to Saint Matthew are so strong! "Fear no one." We can only be free from fear and from fears if we truly believe in the Lord and live for everlasting life.

    The first reading today is from the Prophet Jeremiah. He had lots of people trying to end his life and to make his life difficult if he lived. He tells us that even his friends had been working against him. Yet he knows that God is with him and that he need not fear. Of course, sometimes his enemies made his life difficult. So to have God with us is not magic and we can still encounter very difficult situations. But if our trust is in the Lord, we know that in the end, all shall be well. That end may be after our death! But the challenge is simply to cling to the Lord!

    The second reading today is from the Letter to the Romans. This reading tells us that sin has entered the world through one man, Adam, but that through another man, Jesus the Christ, the grace of God and the gracious gift of the one man Jesus Christ overflow for the many. The message is the same: sin and evil and bad things will no triumph in the long run. Rather, God will triumph and will vanquish all sin and evil. To cling to this promise of the Lord is the challenge of our spiritual life!

    Today's Gospel is from the Gospel of Matthew. We return to the words of Jesus: "Fear no one." In today's world, we Christians are more and more likely to encounter problems. The values of Jesus, the teachings of Jesus and of the Church, are now being spurned in our world and called into question. If we cling to these teachings and words, we are accused of being people of hate and of promoting "hate speech." This condition in our world will most likely only increase. Christians are already the most persecuted group in the world.

    We should not want to abandon our faith in order to avoid being reject, mocked, scorned and judged by others. Most of us want a simple and quiet life to live in peace. That simplicity and quietness may well be taken away from us today. The challenge for us is to hold fast to the words of Jesus: "Fear no one." That also means that we must cling to the teachings of the Lord Jesus without any fear or even without concern for what may happen to our lives.

    Let us be ready to walk with the Lord to suffering and death, rejoicing that we are found worthy to suffer for clinging to the words and the teachings of the Lord Jesus.
