Zion Lutheran Church
November 19, 2017
Our gathering today, in Zion Lutheran Church, Canada’s oldest Lutheran parish, established in 1772, is an amazing grace, a unique experience of the ecumenical journey of the past 50 years and an expression of great hope in the on-going commitment of Catholics and Lutherans to move from conflict to communion.
Closing the Jubilee of Mercy
St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica
November 13th, 2016
“By your endurance you will gain your souls.”
These closing words from today’s gospel express in a short phrase, the lesson I suggest should be retained on this 33rd Sunday of ordinary time. It is also an appropriate point to make on the day we close the Jubilee Year of Mercy’s Holy Doors in our Archdiocese.
