Liturgy Matters – Why the cross?

April 16, 2019 Louise Gannon rsj

Some weeks ago there was an ecumenical gathering focused on the question ‘Why the cross?’  It was a wonderful, engaging, enlightening evening.  Three of us spoke and I was stretched by the reflections shared by our two brothers from other Christian Churches. What follows is an abbreviation of the reflection I gave.  As we journey through Holy Week which pivots on the cross, you might reflect on your own response to the question, ‘Why the Cross?’

I just love the Chrism Mass. It is far better than ‘raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens’!

LITURGY MATTERS: Liturgical resources for Lent

March 18, 2019 Louise Gannon rsj

Happy St. Joseph’s day!  May our reflection on Joseph lead us into an ever deepening listening to God’s word; a listening that opens our eyes and hearts to recognise when our ways are not consistent with God’s ways; a listening that empowers us to let go of what we thought was a good idea and do what God asks.

We have just celebrated the launch of Project Compassion.  This year, we celebrated Catholic Schools Week as well.  What better way to celebrate the life and mission of our Catholic Schools than for staff, students and parents to gather to do what is essential to our Catholic life: to pray; to listen to the voice of those who experience poverty and marginalisation; to listen to what God has to say about that; to commit ourselves to do something for others?
