As Catholics, we know that the Holy Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith: it is the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Pope Francis has called it the "Sacrament of Love":

"The Eucharist is at the heart of 'Christian initiation', together with Baptism and Confirmation, and it constitutes the source of the Church's life itself. From this Sacrament of love, in fact, flows every authentic journey of faith, of communion, and of witness."


The Daily Mass

The Daily Mass Outward actions often reflect internal beliefs. Some of that comes into play in regard to how we live out our lives as Catholics. Hopefully our external words and actions reflect the depth of our faith. It's important to remember the distinction between subjective and objective proof. Subjective things are more internal matters of our minds and hearts. These are things which are difficult to prove; we need a lot of trust to believe them. Consider a subjective example: the proof of how much we love our mother. Contrary to subjective evidence is objective evidence. These are things which are black or white, true or false, right or wrong, good or bad. Consider an objective example: the receipt that you purchased flowers for your mom on Mother's Day.


Some Things Ahead

04-15-2018Weekly ReflectionFr. Brian Jazdzewski

First of all, Happy Easter once again! Those who were able to attend any of the services on Holy Week and Easter weekendwere once again filled with grace. A word of gratitude once again to those who assisted with the liturgies and church environmentto make these days of grace more enriching. An additional word of gratitude is given to the members of the Church of SaintBoniface who so graciously hosted us during the days of the Holy Triduum. May God bless us one and all!


The Case for Easter as the Favorite Holiday (& Silly Season)

04-08-2018Weekly ReflectionFr. Brian Jazdzewski

Often we find ourselves in conversation making remarks about favorite things. You know -- sports, food, relatives, vacations, holidays, etc. Sometimes our Catholic holidays make the list among popular favorites, namely Christmas and Easter. Perhaps a secular holiday like Thanksgiving can be thrown into the mix of favorite holidays, too. Whatever the case may be for you, there is ample support for Easter ranking as the favorite holiday of our Roman Catholic Church.
