    ECUMENISM MAKES ME FEEL GOOD

    (OR “Ecce quam bonum et quam jucundum)

     As you know, our two dioceses: the Diocese of Qu’Appelle and the Archdiocese of Regina, entered into a Covenant last year. It was an ecumenical achievement of which we can be justifiably proud and which has drawn interest from far and wide. When our two dioceses first investigated the possibility of a covenant between us and then entered into that convenant at the beginning of this year, it was a great sign of hope for many of us and continues to be so.

     I have been...

    We celebrate today the Feast of St. Luke whom we recognize as the co-worker of St. Paul and who was the writer of the third Gospel. Luke is believed to be a physician and in his writings we sense that the human love of Jesus is of great importance for him, as well as is Jesus’ compassion for those who suffer and are outcast or pushed to the edge of society because they are sick or behaviour is seen to be sinful.

    In the Gospel today we hear Luke tell us of the time Jesus sent his seventy disciples with a mission to get people ready for Jesus’ upcoming visit to them. He gives some...

    My dear brothers and sisters it is a great pleasure for me to be with you this evening to celebrate the Compassionate Healers’ Mass for the benefit and the intentions of all of those good and wonderful people who are involved in the ministry of healing and care of the sick in our Archdiocese. We come together here this evening as people who see health care as a ministry and not simply a profession or a job.

    We are Christian health care workers; we are Catholic health care workers. We see health care as a ministry because we are followers of Jesus. We believe that Jesus is the way,...

    My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, it is a great joy for me that we gather together today for this special Liturgy of Reconciliation. We celebrate this time of prayer in fulfillment of the commitment made in the Covenant which was signed this past January between the Anglican Diocese of Qu’Appelle and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Regina. I believe it is most fitting that we celebrate this liturgy on the Feast of Pentecost.

    This great feast brings the fifty day Season of Easter to its conclusion. In many ways Pentecost sums up the meaning of Jesus’ Resurrection both for...

    My dear friends, I am very appreciative of this opportunity to be with you today for this special occasion and I thank you for your invitation to preside over this Mass of thanksgiving on the occasion of the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Sisters Adorers of the Precious Blood.

    Being invited here today I thought was a good opportunity to find out more about this community which has been in Regina since 1933. Like many good things in life, one knows that the Sisters are here and we know that they are praying for us, but we often don’t know much about their...

    My dear friends, I have been away for the past three weeks on an adventure, accompanying 40 young people from our diocese on a pilgrimage in Italy and then the events of World Youth Day, which was held this year in Madrid Spain with one and a half million young Catholic people in joyful attendance.

    Just before I left, I grabbed the sheet of paper that Myles Meyers had sent to the office with information about this Mass. I knew that I needed time to think about what I would say to you all today and two days after a long trip wouldn’t do it. So from time to time I would look at the...

    My dear friends, let me say first how pleased I am to be with you, as your Archbishop, this afternoon to celebrate this Mass for you the Miller High School graduates. Graduation from High School is an extremely special event. While preparing for this Mass, I realized that it was 52 years ago this month that I graduated from High School in Moncton, New Brunswick. You probably can’t even imagine anyone being that old! It is somewhat a surprise for me as well!

    Times have changed over the years, and the world has changed. Yet one thing doesn’t change: graduation from High School marks...
