Appeal for Hunger Crisis in Sub-Saharan Africa

By St. Pius X | News

Development and Peace has launched an appeal for the Hunger Crisis in Sub-Sahara Africa. You are probably aware, the combined effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, droughts, floods, civil conflicts, political instabilities and the food shortages now caused by the war in Ukraine have left 50 million people “teetering on the edge of famine.” Needless to […]

A Refresher on Mass Intentions

By St. Pius X | News

Every week we see under the Mass intentions, a Mass for the Parishioners. Why is that? In Latin it is known as Missa pro popluo, or Mass for the people. Canon Law, the law of the Church, states the following: Can. 534 §1. “After a pastor has taken possession of his parish, he is obliged […]

Each is distinct, but all dwell together in perfect harmony and mutual love. That’s about as far as we can go by way of “explanation.” […]

The Season of Easter comes to an end with today’s celebration of Pentecost. The Acts of the Apostles tells the story of the great event. The Spirit, with the sound of a mighty wind, fills all assembled with God’s presence. The disciples, coming from so many different places, are able to understand each other. The […]

Reflection for the Ascension of the Lord

Today’s celebration of the Ascension marks the return of Jesus to the Father after the Resurrection. We know from the gospel in another place that Jesus’ return to the Father was accompanied by a promise that he would remain with us until the “end of the age”: that is, until the end of time. In […]

Reflection for the Sixth Sunday of Easter

By St. Pius X | News

When Jesus gently broke the news of his departure to his disciples, as his parting gift, he left the offer of peace which the world cannot give.  It was not a promise to preserve them from hardships and suffering, but a pledge to bring them safely from all trouble to eternal life.  The peace Jesus […]
