ON THE MOST SACRED HEART OF JESUS

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

As we have entered into the Month of May and the Month of Mary, I am inviting you, along with your devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and in preparation for the Month of the Most Sacred Heart in June, to take the time to read the document below.  This document is a PASTORAL LETTER of His Eminence, Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto.  As one of the senior prelates in this country, and as a prolific writer and homilist, His Eminence presents to us in his letter, a profound insight into the crisis’ of our times, and the necessary devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. 

As your Pastor and Shepherd therefore, out of love and concern for you souls, I am not simply asking you to read this; I am ‘telling’ you to read this.  All the preaching in the world cannot emphasize enough, the need for our love for the Sacred of Jesus and the great salvific act He gave for the cause of our salvation. 

This Pastoral Letter is a gift to the Church in our times and it is so that you can truly discover the gift that is being given to you, that I say to you …  “READ THIS!”  Print off the Letter if you can, then take time aside with a cup of tea, a lit candle and 30 minutes of prayerful, quiet time, and allow your heart to be open to the Sacred Heart of Jesus as our eminent Shepherd presents it to you.  I am sure too, that you will want to share it, pray with it, and to refer back to it often. 

Prayerfully Yours in Christ,

Fr. Tim

CORONAVIRUS OUTREACH PROGRAM

In the spirit of St. Charles Borromeo, who went out during the plague of 1576 in Milan, we are hoping to be of some assistance to those who are in need due to isolation during these difficult times.  We are looking to provide pastoral care with the following services: 

  • Grocery pick up;
  • Pharmaceutical pick up;
  • Sacramental Care – “Sacrament of the Sick” (Anointing, Confession, Holy Communion);
  • Add a name(s) to our Prayer List.

If you are interested in helping out with this program or know of someone who is in need of this outreach, please contact CHRIS MOFFAT at 613-316-0526 or email deaconchrismoffat@blessedsacrament.ca
