Saint Anne's parish in Saskatoon's North neighbourhood. An active collection of Sunday Mass homilies. Our mission is to welcome all to encounter Jesus, grow as disciples, reach out in faith and service.
Divine Discontent | First Sunday of Advent
Today's first reading contains the powerful prayer, "Oh that you would tear open the heavens and come down!" This is a prayer of divine discontent, seeing that this world is not okay and longing for God to come down and make it right. Christmas is God doing exactly that. Preparing for Christmas is to receive for ourselves that same divine discontent.
Coming Together and Being Sent | Feast of Christ the King
The Gospel is the parable of the sheep and the goats, with Jesus great words, "You did this to me." We come together at Mass to receive Jesus and then are sent out to love.
Vatican II and our Talents | Thirty-third Sunday of Ordinary Time
The Second Vatican Council, held from 1962-1965, had a huge impact on the life of every Catholic. What does it still call us to day, and how do we keep living out God's call to us through the Council?
Obstacles to Discernment | Thirty-second Sunday of Ordinary Time
We've been talking a lot about discernment lately. This homily dives into three obstacles to discernment. Do we believe that God can speak to us? And how do we tell what's coming from God and what's coming from me?
Consecration, Transubstantiation, and Calling Priests Father | Thirty-first Sunday of Ordinary Time
As we continue our parish discernment process, we keep working to increase our loving awareness of Jesus' presence in the tabernacle. Today we tackle two big theological terms: consecration and transubstantiation, and in light of the today's Gospel, we do we call priests "Father"?
Real Presence of Jesus and Discernment | Thirtieth Sunday of Ordinary Time [10/29/23]
This weekend, we're starting a parish discernment process about the placement of our tabernacle. How can we hear God's voice and find the best way to worship him together?
