I was not very devoted to Mary as I was growing up. Yes, I believed in her. I accepted her as our and Jesus' Mother. But only that. Why? Maybe because I was not particularly pious. I go to Holy Mass on Sundays only now and then. I did not pray the rosary unless it [...]

The ninth day from the Solemnity of Corpus Christi (i.e., if we celebrate it on a Thursday), we celebrate the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is like a continuation of the celebration of Corpus Christi. Has not His Body a Heart which pumps Blood throughout our body, supplying oxygen and nutrients to our cells and [...]

On June 7, we solemnly celebrated the central mystery of our faith, namely, the Most Blessed Trinity. Thursday after this, we celebrated the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, or what is called Corpus Christi. (Some countries celebrate this on a Sunday after Trinity Sunday). What does this Feast mean? Why do we [...]

On June 7, the Church celebrated the Solemnity of the Most Blessed Trinity, the central mystery of our faith, which also is the principal feast of our congregation. Our contemplative-missionary calling takes its origin in the mystery of the Trinity (cf. C.411). "It is our constant endeavor to glorify the triune God by responding to [...]

Blessed Pentecost!

We come now to the end of the Easter season, climaxing at Pentecost, the coming down of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles. Watch and listen to Dr. Brant Pitre as he clearly explains the meaning and origin of Pentecost. Pentecost is also known as the Birthday of the Catholic Church. "It is called that because Pentecost is [...]

Despite the pandemic and the lockdown that ensued, we celebrated the Easter Triduum, i.e., Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Black Saturday and the Easter Vigil that followed, with greater solemnity. Because we are offering to God everything in union with the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, our liturgical celebrations were all the more meaningful. We [...]

Yesterday, February 25, 2017, we celebrated our Mother Mary Michael's 83rd year of passing over into eternity. To celebrate this day, we were allowed, (since her Beatification process is still in progress) to display her picture in the chapel. Gladly, we did just that. We placed her very big painting, made by the brother of one [...]

St. Joseph Freinademetz  canonized together with St. Arnold Janssen on October 5, 2003, was the very first Divine Word (SVD) missionary to China.

We celebrate today the Feast of the Epiphany, the Manifestation of the Lord or commonly known as the Feast of the three Kings or the three Magi. We know their popular story: they saw the Star of Bethlehem and followed it until it led them to a stable and found Joseph and Mary, with the Baby Jesus [...]
