Corpus Christi-Fathers Day

Corpus Christi

- očetovski dan Očetje, stari očetje, tisti ki so nam bili v življenju kot očetje.

The loaf of bread is one, we, though many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf.

This statement talks about Jesus’ mystical body which is the Church, all of us who were baptized. Jesus himself nourishes us. We all receive the same body of Christ and we are one through him and with him.

Mother’s Day

On a Mother’s Day we are thankful to God for our mothers and we pray for them. We also remember that we we have a Heavenly Mother – in Lemont we call her Marija Pomagaj.

30. navadna nedelja leto A 2014

Tako govori Gospod:Tujca ne izkoriščaj in ne zatiraj, ...Tu se Bog ne zavzema za izvoljeno ljudstvo, ne za ''domače'' ampak za ''tujce'', za tiste, ki jih Judje niso nujno radi sprejemali, včasih so imeli o njih predsodke.
