Preparing for our Diocesan Assembly
on the 24th of November 2012
Reflecting upon "Dies Domine"
Apostolic Letter of Pope John Paul II

THE LORD'S DAY: A DAY FOR RELATIONSHIPS

"According to the gospels, the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead took place on the first day after the Jewish Sabbath Day. On this same day the Lord appeared to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus; and to the Eleven in the Upper Room." (Dies Domini DD 20)

We celebrate Sunday because it is the day Christ rose from the dead. We gather and break bread in the Eucharist so as to make Christ's presence real again. No Sunday is complete without sharing in the Mass, without being present with neighbours, family, friends and even strangers gathered together as one around the altar.

For Reflection This Week:

  • What keep you and your household from participating in Sunday Mass?
  • ​Can you overcome these obstacles
