News from the CCCB

(Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops)

*NEW* COLF Message for the 2017 National Week for Life and the Family

To mark the National Week for Life and the Family, 14 to 21 May 2017, the Catholic Organization for Life and Family (COLF) has released its annual message on the theme "Love Grows by Giving". In its Message, COLF issues an invitation "to reflect with Pope Francis on the wonderful role which God has entrusted to the family in transmitting true love. Let us ask ourselves how we can better reflect God's unconditional love and mercy, whether in the context of our own day to day family life or to family members or friends 'at the periphery'." The Week for Life and the Family is a CCCB initiative that Canadian dioceses and eparchies are invited to promote or adapt according to their own resources and pastoral priorities. Resources have been prepared by COLF in collaboration and consultation with the CCCB. Read more...

*NEW* Prayer Cards for Three Canadian Patron Saints

The CCCB has prepared prayer cards in honour of three recently declared Canadian patron Saints: Saint André Bessette (commonly referred to as Saint Brother André), Saint François de Laval, and Saint Kateri Tekakwitha. At their 2016 Plenary Assembly, the Bishops of Canada unanimously approved the three devotional titles, recognizing there has been strong popular devotion to all three saints since their deaths and already long before they were declared Saints by the Universal Church. The Bishops also wished to underscore the continuing and contemporary significance of these Saints in the life of the Church in Canada. Read more...

Stewardship

*NEW* Stewardship Reflection

3rd Sunday of Easter - April 30, 2017

“Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked to us on the road, while He opened to us the scriptures?”  Luke 24:32

 How often do we take the time to discern what Jesus wants from us? Are our prayers always petitions, asking Jesus to do things for us? If so, that’s a one-sided relationship. Living our faith means developing a personal relationship with Jesus. Just like any friendship, there is give and take, each side listening to each other and helping each other out. Take time in silence to listen to what Jesus is asking of you.
