Diaconate Ordinations 2013

Rest in Peace Msgr Urban Peschier

Image
Name: Msgr Urban Peschier – Diocesan Date of Ordination: November 1, 1953 Portfolio: Defender of the Bond, Marriage Tribunal By Christophe Cole Monsignor Urban Peschier was born in Chaguanas where he lived for about two years. Baptised in the parish of St Philip & St James, he went on to receive the sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation at the parish of Santa Rosa in Arima, while attending Arima Boys’ RC School. He says that like many priests, he got his call to priesthood at a very young age. He remembers his father telling him that as a pre-schooler he would point to the priest on the altar, indicating he wanted to do what the priest was doing. He remembers too that a significant step in his journey came when he was selected to be an altar server in his parish. He was very excited about this, and so were his parents, as only five boys were selected. He says that this support from his parents continued throughout his youth and straight into his decision to enter the seminary. …

Pope Francis' Homily to the Cardinal-electors

Pope Francis' Homily to the Cardinal-electors

In these three readings [Isaiah 2:2-5, 1 Peter 2:4-9, Matthew 16:13-19] I see that there is something in common: it is movement. In the first reading, movement is the journey [itself]; in the second reading, movement is in the up-building of the Church. In the third, in the Gospel, the movement is in [the act of] profession: walking, building, professing.

Walking: the House of Jacob. “O house of Jacob, Come, let us walk in the light of the Lord.” This is the first thing God said to Abraham: “Walk in my presence and be blameless.” Walking: our life is a journey and when we stop, there is something wrong. Walking always, in the presence of the Lord, in the light of the Lord, seeking to live with that blamelessness, which God asks of Abraham, in his promise.

Building: to build the Church. There is talk of stones: stones have consistency, but [the stones spoken of are] living stones, stones anointed by the Holy Spirit. Build up the Church, …

Fr. Lombardi: Pope Francis Gives Testimony of Simplicity

Image
"We Have a Pope Who Wants to Serve"
Vatican City, March 13, 2013 (Zenit.org)  Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio is already well known for his simplicity: for being a pastor among the people, a cardinal who takes the bus and cooks for himself, for example, and a great defender of the poor. Now as Pope, he has begun with simplicity. “To pray the simplest prayers with the people is the greatest sign of simplicity,” observed his fellow Jesuit, Father Federico Lombardi, director of the Vatican press office, in reference to Pope Francis’ leading the people in the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be during his first appearance on St. Peter’s central balcony. Fr. Lombardi acknowledged his surprise at the election, and declared this is a “moment of joy for the Church.” He went on to speak of Cardinal Bergoglio-Pope Francis’ style of “evangelical testimony” and stressed his humility, evidenced in how he bowed down before the people, asking them to pray for God’s blessing upon him, prior to giv…

Long Life to the New Pope

The new pope first words:

‎"Brothers and sisters, good evening!

You know that the duty of the Conclave was to give a bishop to Rome. It seems as though my brother cardinals went almost to the end of the world to get him. But here we are. I thank you for your welcome. The diocesan community of Rome has a bishop. Thank you!

Before all else, I would like to say a prayer for our Bishop Emeritus Benedict XVI. Let us all pray together for him, that the Lord may bless him and that Our Lady may watch over him …

[Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory be]

And now let us begin this journey, [together] as bishop and people. This journey of the Church of Rome, which is to preside over all the Churches in charity. It is a journey of fraternity, of love, of trust between us. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the world, so that a great brotherhood may be created. I hope that this journey of the Church, which we begin today and in which my Cardinal Vicar who is present here will assist me,…
