SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL

Matthew 214:12-16, 22:26

The symbolic gesture of breaking and sharing bread and sharing the cup, that Jesus made at the Last Supper, symbolised the offering of himself that he would make on Calvary, giving his life for others.  Sometimes we also are called to give our lives for others.  We can do this grudgingly or with a generous heart.  What difference has it made for you when you were able to give yourself freely?

In his encyclical letter Deus Caritas Est Pope Benedict XVI wrote, ‘A Eucharist which does not pass over into the concrete practice of love is essentially fragmented’.  What has helped you to be aware of the importance of the link between the Eucharist and your lifestyle?

Jesus involved his disciples both in the preparation for the Last Supper and in its celebration.  Recall times when you had a heightened awareness of participation and involvement in the Mass.  What helped to give you this awareness?  Are there lessons from these special experiences that you can bring with you to the routine Sunday Mass?

Given the COVID-19 precautionary measures, our churches are inaccessible for the faithful. Participation in the daily sacraments is beyond reach for them. Shalom World TV, a Catholic media ministry of the Shalom Ministries, is an official partner with the Vatican and is authorized to telecast papal liturgies directly via its free high-definition television channel. Shalom World is committed to producing free yet high-quality Catholic content such as Daily Mass, devotionals, shows, music, youth programs, children’s programs, conventions, retreats, and cultural exchange segments. The programming is absolutely free and can be watched live or on-demand. The most recent addition, in response to COVID-19, is a 4th channel to the existing 3 channels, for exclusive live telecast of daily Holy Mass around the clock, with special prayers for an end to coronavirus .

We are broadcasting Daily Mass Live from Saints Peter and Paul's Church, Portlaoise, Co. Laois at 10:00 am everyday during this challenging time.

Bishop Denis Nulty, Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin is our patron in Ireland  and Shalom World is endorsed by Catholic leaders from around the globe .
