Trinity Sunday

By St. Pius X | News

Today is Trinity Sunday. God as Trinity is at the heart of Christian belief. We believe that in One God abides a community of Three Persons: Father, Son, and Spirit. 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.” […]

Pentecost Sunday

By St. Pius X | News

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 […]

Ascension of the Lord

By St. Pius X | News

Today we celebrate the Ascension of the Lord—the mystery of his returning to the Father, being taken up, “seated…at [God’s] right hand in the heavenly places.” The disciples could no longer see him as before, but he promised to be with them “always, to the end of the age.” That promise of abiding presence would […]

6th Sunday of Easter

By St. Pius X | News

The mission of Jesus is brought to its fullness by the outpouring of the Spirit upon the fledgling Church at Pentecost, celebrated liturgically fifty days after Easter. We notice the Readings this Sunday making reference to the Holy Spirit. In the First Reading from the Acts of the Apostles, we hear of laying hands on […]

5th Sunday of Easter

By St. Pius X | News

We sometimes—incorrectly—assume that the early Christian community led a kind of charmed life. Not so, our First Reading today teaches us. A dispute arose among two groups of Jewish Christians: the Greek speakers or Hellenists, and the Hebrew speakers. The Hellenists thought that the vulnerable among them—their widows—were not being treated as well as the […]

4th Sunday of Easter

By St. Pius X | News

The Fourth Sunday of Easter is known as “Good Shepherd Sunday.” In today’s gospel, Jesus sets up a comparison between the influence and intent of the shepherd—Jesus refers to him as the “gatekeeper”—in relation to his sheep, and that of the thief. The shepherd is the passageway through whom the sheep pass toward where they […]

3rd Sunday of Easter

By St. Pius X | News

“The Road to Emmaus” is one of the most familiar of the Resurrection stories. Dejected and afraid, the disciples are leaving Jerusalem after the devastation of the crucifixion. Convinced that a major chapter of their lives had ended—in spite of the news some of the women among them have told of Jesus being risen—they are […]

2nd Sunday of Easter

By St. Pius X | News

Every Second Sunday of Easter, we get a chance to become reacquainted with the Apostle, Thomas. Poor Thomas! His name lives on in a sort of infamy. It’s no compliment to be called a “Doubting Thomas.” We may, though, be a bit hard on him. Just put ourselves in his place. Growing up in an […]

Easter

By St. Pius X | News

Mary Magdalene is one of the best known of the many personalities we meet in the story of the life of Jesus. Today, on this great Day of Resurrection she plays a prominent role. It is difficult for us to imagine the devastation that the disciples of Jesus felt when they saw him dead on […]
