pope_john_paul Towards April 27

In preparation for the canonization of Parish’s patron, it is fit to recall the good nature of this wonderfully human Pope.

He was elected at the conclave (the convening of all Roman Catholic cardinals) in 1958 at the age of 77. Security was not a major issue back then, and the good Pope liked to get out of the Vatican and often strolled the streets of Rome. He was a huge man, and on one occasion overheard a woman commenting on how large in size the Pope was. He turned to her and said, “Madame, you must know that the conclave is not exactly a beauty contest!”

Bulletin


risen“Risen, as he said he would.”  (Mt. 28:6) 

At Easter, we celebrate the greatest feast of the Christian calendar. The Resurrection is the cornerstone of our faith and the most extraordinary happening in human history. For Christians there’s not a day that compares with Easter Sunday. This truly is the day of the Lord! All our hopes and happiness stem from what happened that first Easter morning.
