Readings for the Octave of Easter

Saturday, May 04, 2019
Dear Parishioners, Because Easter is such a significant feast, we observe an Octave following the feast eight days of special liturgy of the Resurrection. However, once the Octave is over, we enter into the Easter Season. The white vestments are worn, Easter week-day liturgies are celebrated until the Feast of Pentecost, after which we will resume Ordinary Time. During these weeks, however ...Read more

St. Luke's Gospel - Narrating How God’s Promises to Israel Had Been Fulfilled

Sunday, January 27, 2019
Dear Parishioners, We are all familiar with the opening words, the prologue, of St. John’s Gospel. "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God." This week we are introduced to the beginning of the Gospel of St. Luke, and only the Gospel of Luke opens with a literary prologue that clearly sets forth Luke’s motive for writing the narrative. Luke ...Read more

A Wealth of Saints' Feasts and Martin Luther King Day

Sunday, January 20, 2019
Dear Parishioners, While we are entering the Second Week in Ordinary time. The days we celebrate this week are certainly far from being ordinary days. On Monday the nation pauses to celebrate the ninetieth birthday (January 21) of Martin Luther King. Boston holds a special place in the life of Doctor King who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in combating racial inequality ...Read more

Celebration of Saints' Feast Days at the End of the Liturgical Calendar

Saturday, October 13, 2018
Dear Parishioners, The brilliant and fast changing colors of Fall will soon be replaced by the leaves turning brown and falling to the earth to lie dormant until a new Spring with new life and new growth. The Church, too, is fast approaching the end of the liturgical year. This week we celebrate the Twenty-eighth week in Ordinary Time. This is all predicated by the date of Easter. Since Ea ...Read more

St. Robert Bellarmine

Sunday, September 16, 2018
Dear Parishioners, High above the entrance to Cohasset Harbor, across the water from Bassing Beach, there stands a stately building called Bellarmine House. Owned by Boston College, it has long served as a vacation site, a respite from the teaching and other ministries performed by the members of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits). I mention this because on Monday we celebrate the feast d ...Read more

The opening prayer on her feast day  ...Read more

The Feast of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha

Sunday, July 08, 2018
Dear Parishioners When St. Paul wrote his second letter to the people of Corinth he said: "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and constraints, for the sake of Christ, for when I am weak, then I am strong." No person lived out these words of St. Paul any better than the sa ...Read more

John the Baptist - A Sign of Expectation and Promise

Sunday, June 24, 2018
Dear Parishioners, Today we celebrate the birthday of John the Baptist. St. John says "there was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came to bear witness to the light, to prepare an upright people for the Lord." John the Baptist is one of the greatest saints of the Church, arguably outranked only by the Blessed Virgin Mary herself. John's stature, like that of Mary, results from h ...Read more

The Feast of St. Anthony of Padua and Matthew's Gospel

Sunday, June 10, 2018
Dear Parishioners, The return to the Sunday liturgy of Ordinary Time (we celebrate the 10th Sunday in Ordinary time this week-end) also brings us back to the Sunday gospels from the Gospel of St. Matthew. The position of Matthew as the first of the four gospel writers in the New Testament reflects both the view that it was the first to be written, a view that goes back to the late second  ...Read more
