6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.Romans 5: 5 – 115and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us.6While we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.7Why, one will hardly die for a righteous man — though perhaps for a good man one will dare even to die.8But God shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.9Since, therefore, we are now justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.10For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.11Not only so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received our reconciliationLuke 15: 3 – 73So he told them this parable:4″What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost, until he finds it?5And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.6And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, `Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost.’7Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

I’ve written before about how migratory Americans and Canadians are (and always have been) compared to Europeans until very recently. We seem to have this feeling that we can just pick up and leave Chicago for New York or Toronto for Montreal, and everything will be fine.

Hello Everyone,In case some of you were questioning what happened to the monthly practice over the last two months, simple explanations:1) March: The last friday of the month was Good Friday. ‘Nuff said.2) April: Quite frankly I was caught up in my work priorities and other things in my personal life and needed to step back a bit from Latin Mass stuff.

Unfortunately, we’re now Wednesday – may 29th- so I’m a little behind, and I’ve missed out on some lovely passages, and some even lovelier homilies from Pope Francis (I’ve been calling him Benedict a lot in my head, I have to watch myself!!)…nevertheless, let’s deal with those wonderful passages!Readings:All of last week, we heard from Sirach about the challenges of our faith, but were also reminded time and time again that we are never to face these challenges alone.
