Daring to Follow The Lord

Archbishop emeritus Sylvain Lavoie, OMI

Archdiocese of Keewatin Le-Pas:

My own vocation story began in my family where I realize faith was more caught than taught. We packed into the car and drove eight miles to mass every Sunday on gravel roads. Every October and May we would pray the rosary kneeling around the kitchen table. What I recall most vividly is the peace that I felt in the car and in the house after those two prayerful events. It was, I believe, an experience of the presence of God.

Let Justice Flow Like A Mighty River

Archbishop emeritus Sylvain Lavoie, OMI

Archdiocese of Keewatin Le-Pas:

I believe that justice is a right relationship with God, with others, with our selves, and with all of God's creation. When we are walking in an
intimate relationship with God; when we have been reconciled with all the people in our lives, when we know ourselves and have accepted ourselves as we are, when we care deeply for ecology and are doing what we can to sustain the environment, then we are being just and righteous.

A Sandwich Perspective

Archbishop emeritus Sylvain Lavoie, OMI

Archdiocese of Keewatin Le-Pas:

In the Upper Room with the disciples, Mary teaches us the importance of being part of the community of the faithful. She is also a model of perseverance in prayer and teaching us how to keep vigil, which is waiting for someone or some event to come into our lives to bring completion and wholeness to us.So from both Tradition and the Bible, we celebrate Mary as the first, and perfect disciple, and a model for us all. Our response to her should be deep devotion, respectful veneration, and above all, learning from her example and trying to imitate her as she leads us to her Son.
