A day for gathering

Preparing for our Diocesan Assembly
on the 24th of November 2012

Reflecting upon "Dies Domine"
Apostolic Letter of Pope John Paul II

THE LORD'S DAY: A DAY FOR GATHERING

"The Eucharist is the fountain head of the Church's life. It feeds and forms the Church: "Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread"." (Dies Domini DD 32)

On Sunday at the Mass, we pause to enjoy and live more fully the faith we share. We gather to remember the resurrection. The Church has always gathered like this, so we are connected down through the ages with those who have gone before us, our own families and the generations of Catholics who have lived and died for the faith.

For Reflection This Week:

  • How does the celebration of Mass feed you?
  • Who among the communion of saints is most present to you each Sunday?
