Faith Sparks: ‘Broken Open’ by a Journey of Grief
October used to be my favorite month. There were so many things to look forward to – fall foliage, the taste of the first apple pie of the season washed down with a flavorful cup of hot mulled apple cider, and the joyful sound of children’s laughter as they trick-or-treat through neighbo...

Oh Happy Day!

Posted on March 28, 2024 in: Reflections

Oh Happy Day!
Some years ago, a Gospel song made the top 10 charts, it was called “Oh Happy Day.” The refrain of the song is, “Oh happy day, oh happy day, when Jesus washed my sins away.” The “happy day” is Good Friday, because that is the day when Jesus brings salvation to humanity by His Passion and death on the cross. But for Christians, there is an even happier day, the day when He is risen: Easter Sunday. As Catholic Christians, we are, of course, a people of the Eucharist, and a people of the living Word of God. But primarily, we are an Easter...

Here’s When Easter Officially Ends

Here’s When Easter Officially Ends
Catholics recognize Easter — when Jesus Christ rose from the dead after sacrificing his life for all of humanity — as the first Sunday after the first full moon on or after the spring equinox. But, as it turns out, they can continue saying “Happy Easter” into May or, in some years, into June. Easter lasts for a total of 50 days, from Easter Sunday until the feast of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came upon the apostles, Mary, and the first followers of Christ.  This year, 2024, Easter was on March 31 and runs until Pentecost Sunday, ...

The Shroud of Turin - The Most Holy Cloth
It is said to have been brought from the Mideast to Europe by the Knights Templar, and it is purportedly the most studied artifact in history. But the greatest claim made for this cloth is that it is the actual burial cloth of Christ, the Shroud of Turin. On the cloth can be seen a faint image of the corpse of a tortured man, with blood stains indicating wounds around the head, chest, arms, hands, and feet. The first photograph of the cloth was taken in 1898, and to everyone’s amazement, it revealed that the image was something akin to a photographic negative, whic...

A Glowing Celebration of Faith- Candlelit Easter Vigil at the Cathedral of Saint Patrick
A sea of candlelight cast a comforting glow over those gathered in the darkened Cathedral of Saint Patrick for the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday, March 30th. The Liturgy of Light (Lucernarium) commenced as Bishop Michael R. Cote and ministers proceeded in silence and darkness to the rear of the Cathedral. There, the Bishop spoke to the faithful about the significance of the vigil before bestowing a blessing upon the new fire, which would be used to light the Paschal candle. Father Brian Romanowski then carried the lit candle down the main aisle into the dimly lit Cath...
