“A Matter of Life and Death”: Steinbach Clergy Signs Open Letter

 

Clergy representing 23 churches in Steinbach have signed an open letter showing support for local healthcare workers and public health orders due to the pandemic. The letter, sponsored by the local ministerial, references verses in the book of Romans in the Bible calling on Christians to obey governing authorities "whenever the laws of the land do not cause us to disobey God." Fr. Edgardo M. Deligero, parochial administrator of Christ Our Saviour Catholic Parish, is one of the signatories defending the public health orders. “They are not anti-faith; they are pro-life”, states the letter.

Bishop LeGatt: Christ is Truly King

As instability seems to be rampant in our world, touching many facets of our daily lives, the solemnity of Christ the King, which we celebrate this Sunday, speaks to us boldly of the real power we are called to follow. This great solemnity, which closes the liturgical year, was developed in the years following the First World War: another time when our world also knew great suffering, great fear, and great instability. This same solemnity which was borne out of the need to reflect on the ultimate authority and power of Christ, manifest through the Love of the cross, is again of great importance for us today. Let us reflect, this week, on the power of Christ, his love, his mercy, and his hope, in our hearts and in our lives, even in these times of great suffering. May the peace of Christ truly dwell in us, even amid the greatest turmoil.

Bishop LeGatt - Receive What You Are. Become What You Receive

 
 
The situation in our province has changed yet again. Faced with the rapidly escalating danger of the pandemic spreading in Manitoba, provincial authorities have mandated what is known as a circuit breaker, as an attempt to stint the virus’ transmission. This certainly has large implications for every facet of our lives, including our ways of celebrating our faith. Surely, these are going to be very trying times, as our churches must close. But we truly remain the Body of Christ. Although you may not be able to receive the Eucharist, now is the time for you to be Christ’s living body, incarnated in our world.
 
We have resumed the live broadcast of masses every Sunday, celebrated by Archbishop LeGatt!

Bishop LeGatt: Remembering Our Ancestors

 

The month of November is the month of the dead. This is not the month of death, but rather where we especially remember the lives of those who came before us. Many cultures honour the dead in many beautiful ways. Take some time this month to remember those who came before you, especially in your family. How did their life and love impact and form you? Take some time to thank the Lord for these souls, pray for them, and ask them to pray for you as well!

Bishop LeGatt: A New Normal

 
 
This week, Archbishop Albert is proposing a pot-pourri of reflexions, of sorts. Although the new normal is quite different. It remains important however, while vigilantly respecting all health directives, to remember normal, every-day things. Life goes on! Issues, such as the question of medical assistance in dying - euthanasia - continue to develop, and it continues to be important for us, Christians, to be heard on the political arena.
Archbishop Albert also takes a moment to look ahead at the upcoming Solemnity of All Saints, this Sunday. This solemnity is the flip side of Easter: we too, humans, in our every day lives, may hope to share in Christ’s eternal life!
