Message From Our Pastor & News
Great news! On June 24th 2022 – the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus – at 10:10 a.m. the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade! The vote was 6-3 in favoring of overturning Roe v. Wade. As we know the Catholic Church holds very dear the importance in defending the dignity and value of human life from the moment of conception to natural death. As a Church document, Evangelium Vitae 9 also says, “human life, belongs only to God: for this reason, whoever attacks human life, in some way attacks God himself.” And so, we can add, whoever defends life also defends God and all the gifts He bestows on the world.
If humanity is willing to attack and/or kill their fellow kinsman (as Cain attacked his brother Abel), what could come of the world, what hope would there be in humanity. No longer could man trust his neighbor, much less could would man seek the common good and wellbeing of society. Instead, each would seek their own personal interest and society (humanity) would inevitably fall apart.
It was said by the U.S. Supreme court, “the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.” Despite abortion not being completely illegal, this is a huge step forward in keeping and safeguarding the dignity of Human Life. We must only continue to pray that other countries may follow in the progressive path.

Our Lady of the Cape, Queen of Canada and Queen of Intercessors is COMING to Peterborough!!
Save The Date! Cathedral of St Peter in Chains on Tuesday July 12th 7:30 PM with Bishop Miehm celebrating Holy Mass. The Papal Visit Pilgrim Statue Tour Procession will begin at Canada’s National Marian Shrine in Cap-de-Madeleine, QC and processing to Edmonton AB for the Truth and Reconciliation visit of Pope Francis. It can be likened to an Olympic Torch passing through cities with Our Lady bringing Christ’s message of healing and reconciliation to everyone en route. She will gather pilgrims’ petitions along the way to rise up incense at the Papal Holy Mass. Everyone is welcome!
“In our endeavors to lead a happy life, a useful life, a holy life, we shall find an immense help in the frequent use of little ” ejaculatory prayers,” as we are taught to call them. They are little arrows that we dart, now and then, to the loving and ever-watchful heart of our Heavenly Father, reminding Him that we love Him or that we desire His love. Few words are needed. A thought will sweeten our work, cheer our tired spirits, uplift our drooping souls. Let the striking of the clock, for instance, remind us to say, “My God and my All! ” That does not interfere with our occupation surely.”
“Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine.”
“Sweet Heart of Mary, be my Salvation!”
(From the Sacred Heart Review, Volume 39, Number 21, 16 May 1908)
