    Take heart people, not all is lost. I’ll get to that in a few moments but first it’s been a busy period and I haven’t written the blog since July but with a new season underway, I’ll try to be more regular. Back to the headline….

    As I wandered through the Labour Day Family Picnic held in the west lawns of the legislative building, Sept 1st, 2014, I wasn’t able to detect any kind of Provincial Government’s presence. It would have been heartening had there been one, considering the good will that would have been generated when unionized workers and their families were told of the protection that their government’s watchfulness over the common good had brought them.

    In the Christian understanding, suffering can be redemptive and useful, but it is not automatically so.  Suffering, misunderstood or poorly endured can be simply destructive. One of the most painful aspects of the separation of Christians is the fact that we cannot share the Eucharist together.  With some exceptions, Catholics cannot receive the Eucharist in non-Catholic Christian churches and non-Catholics Christians cannot receive in Catholic Churches.  This is, and should be, painful.  It should be painful because it is a reminder that we are not united in faith as we are called to be.

My dear friends, I try to go around and visit our Catholic Schools as often as I can. I find there is something special there. I talk with people who are involved in Catholic Education about why this is. It usually comes round to thedifferencethat is found in our schools compared to other schools. The difference is found in the way we deal with and treat the children and young people who come to us to learn. That difference comes directly from the faith that all of you who staff our schools and offices have within you.

Dear friends, we set out today on a great adventure for our Church here in Regina as we begin the Formation Program for the Permanent Diaconate for our Archdiocese. I consider this to be a blessing from God and I say “thank you” to God for all of you who are candidates and for you wives who journey through this time of formation with you. You have acted positively in response to what is a call from God and I pray that the four years ahead will bear much fruit for you and for Jesus Christ and his Church.

My dear friends , we gather once again on the eve of the Assumption of Mary to give honour to Mary, the Mother of God; to give voice to show our devotion and our love for this unique woman whom Jesus, her son, has given to us to be our mother, and to celebrate the  Eucharist, to say “thank you” to God for all the love and all the blessings God has given to us, especially through the intercession of Mary, our mother.
