Bishop LeGatt - Continuing to Find Easter Hope

As we continue into this Easter season, until Pentecost, it may be hard to find rays of hope and sunshine within the wake of a potential third wave, among other stresses occurring in our modern world. It is also confirmation season, and although this year’s confirmations are naturally quite different than the norm, it is still possible to see signs of new life, signs of hope! Let us together continue to be signs and witnesses of the hope given us by the resurrected Christ, even amidst the darkness that continues to loom in our world today.

Divine Mercy: Delving Deeper Into the Paschal Mysteries

This Sunday, the 2nd Sunday of Easter, the Church celebrated the universal feast of the Divine Mercy. This special feast, instituted by St. John-Paul II, is an extension of Easter Sunday, helping us delve deeper into the significance of Christ’s death and resurrection to new life, and the infinite and eternal mercy He offers each one of us.

2021 Chrism Mass Photo Gallery

 The Diocesan Chrism Mass, celebrated on March 30 at St. Boniface Cathedral, was a moving event, particularly in this time of pandemic. Blessed by bishop LeGatt during the Mass, the holy oils have now made their way to our parishes, where they will be a significant part of the life of our churches and their parishioners.

The Chrism Mass was attended mostly by pastors and deacons, with some lay people at hand to help organize. While many of the faithful who would normally have attended the celebration in person could not be there on account of the provincial health restrictions regarding church capacities, this did not deter them to participate in a meaningful way, thanks to the livestreaming on two different platforms. Our thanks to all whose industrious participation helped to make this beautiful celebration a success.

Bishop LeGatt: Alleluia! He Is Risen! 2021 Easter Message

There is no denying the hurt, the pain, and the suffering present in our world today. But as we celebrate this Easter season, and as we jubilate over the Lord’s resurrection and the new life offered to us, let us be like the crocus: hearty, and a sign of beauty and love. Truly, Christ has risen. And he is present in our lives, sometimes subtly, but always truly. Let us reflect on the many small signs of beauty Christ gives us, and let us also be, likewise, like the crocus for those around us.

From all of us here at the Archdiocesan Centre, happy Easter!

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Bishop LeGatt - Holy Week: Alone, Yet United

The past year has been defined by challenges and acute suffering as a result of pandemic and world instability. Many have lived through particularly trying moments in this past year: mourning the death of a loved one or suffering from sickness, alone, or experiencing emotional distress, alone, or even not being able to live life’s high points as they would have loved to. We are all living this pandemic and its effects in different ways, but one particularity that is underscored with all is this continued and sometimes overwhelming sense of solitude: of loneliness.
Likewise, Christ was also alone on his way to Calvary. He accepted his cross, and until he breathed his last, he was alone. Let us therefore journey through this holy week, even if we are alone, with Christ, in the isolation and solitude that were his final hours. Together, albeit physically apart, let us hold each other in prayer as we all journey through these high holy days. Christ truly walks with us in the silence of our hearts. And let us not forget Mary, who also journeyed silently with Jesus on his way of the cross, and who also walks with us, intercedes for us, and comforts us. This will truly be a particular Holy Week, which we will never forget. May we, in these times of pandemic and of isolation, be united with Christ, in the aloneness and the silence of the cross, in hopes of the resurrection.

Bishop LeGatt: Blessed Are the Meek, Blessed Are the Peacemakers

This week, Archbishop Albert discusses issues surrounding our rights. The pandemic has indeed brought many issues surrounding rights to the fore, and in the mist of this, we must, from a Christian perspective, seek to find a balance between our personal rights, and those of the collectivity.
Indeed, Christ invites us to put others’ rights before our own, others’ needs before our own, and others’ desires before our own. We know the negative impact COVID has had on our world and in our communities: we see this impact in numbers presented every day and in the suffering of many. But we will never know or fully appreciate the positive impact that our self-sacrificial choices, daily, make in the lives of those around us: your proactive choices during this pandemic may have saved lives, which you will never know. Let us continue to meditate this issue of rights and freedoms, hard fought by our forebears, and which we defend today, not only for ourselves, but for the good of all.
