Seventh Sunday of Easter, Homily by Fr Bill Grimm 2014 June 1

Posted by Fr Nelson Madathikandam MCBS on May 30, 2014

We should examine our lives and commit ourselves to living as those who keep God’s Word. That will often mean going against the ways of the world, including when those ways have found a home in our own hearts or in our own Church.

Seventh Sunday of the Easter (A)

John 17:1-11 1

After saying this, Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said: Father, the hour has come: glorify your Son so that your Son may glorify you; 2 so that, just as you have given him power over all humanity, he may give eternal life to all those you have entrusted to him. 3 And eternal life is this: to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. 4 I have glorified you on earth by finishing the work that you gave me to do. 5 Now, Father, glorify me with that glory I had with you before ever the world existed. 6 I have revealed your name to those whom you took from the world to give me. They were yours and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. 7 Now at last they have recognised that all you have given me comes from you 8 for I have given them the teaching you gave to me, and they have indeed accepted it and know for certain that I came from you, and have believed that it was you who sent me. 9 It is for them that I pray. I am not praying for t

Sixth Sunday of Easter, Homily by Fr Bill Grimm 2014 May 25

Posted by Fr Nelson Madathikandam MCBS on May 23, 2014

Because the Spirit of the Risen Christ is in us we can face our own crosses with confidence that God is still at work, that God’s will is done even when it is thwarted, as it so often is.

 

Sixth Sunday of Easter (A)

John 14:15-21

15 If you love me you will keep my commandments.

16 I shall ask the Father, and he will give you another Paraclete to be with you for ever,

17 the Spirit of truth whom the world can never accept since it neither sees nor knows him; but you know him, because he is with you, he is in you.

18 I shall not leave you orphans; I shall come to you.

19 In a short time the world will no longer see me; but you will see that I live and you also will live.

20 On that day you will know that I am in my Father and you in me and I in you.

21 Whoever holds to my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me; and whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and reveal myself to him.’

Fifth Sunday of Easter, Homily by Fr Bill Grimm 2014 May 18

Posted by Fr Nelson Madathikandam MCBS on May 17, 2014

Jesus tells us today that the place where we live with God is not only this world we live in now. He has prepared another place for us, one with “many dwelling places,” enough dwelling places for each of us to live with him in his Father’s house.

St Brendan the Navigator – Lives of Saints

Posted by Fr Nelson Madathikandam MCBS on May 17, 2014

St Brendan the Navigator

Quick Bios

Born:  c. 484

Died: c. 577

Feast: 16 May

Patronage: sailors, travelers, whales and dolphins

Ireland

 As with many saints from the golden years of Christianity in Ireland, there is little that we know for certain about St Brendan. The tales about Brendan are so remarkable, however, that the person behind the legend must have been equally remarkable. He has become one of Ireland’s best known saints.

He is believed to have been born in the port of Fenit near Tralee in County Kerry in the year 484, and to have been ordained a priest in 512.  For twenty years or so he built monastic cells around Ardfert and Mount Brandon. He then set sail with some companion monks on an epic seven-year journey in search of Paradise, as described in the ninth century story of The Voyage of St Brendan the Navigator. There has even been some speculation that Brendan managed to sail his leather-clad boat all the way to America and back.

Upon his return he founded more monasteries and travelled through Wales and up to Iona in Scotland. He founded a monastery at Clonfert in Galway around the year 559. Legend says that this community had at least three thousand monks, and that their Rule was dictated to Brendan by an angel.

He died around 577 at Annaghdown in Galway and was later buried in Clonfert Cathedral in County Galway, which is now in the care of the Church of Ireland.
