The Second Sunday of Easter–the final day of the Easter Octave–was inaugurated as Divine Mercy Sunday by Saint John Paul II during his homily for the canonization of St. Faustina Kowalska, April 30, 2000.

Pentecost

It's Pentecost, which always occurs 50 days after the death and resurrection of Jesus, and 10 days after his Ascension into heaven. Pentecost is the celebration of the Holy Spirit coming upon the Apostles, Mary and the first followers of Jesus. "By this power of the Spirit, God's children can bear much fruit. He who has grafted us onto the true vine will make us bear the fruit of the Spirit . . . love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. We live by the Spirit; the more we renounce ourselves, the more we walk by the Spirit" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 736).

Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

Time: All Day

"The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity," is one of the few celebrations of the Christian Year that commemorates a reality and doctrine rather than a person or event.

Trinity Sunday is celebrated the Sunday after Pentecost, and lasts only one day, which is symbolic of the unity of the Trinity.

Corpus Christi

Time: All Day

We celebrate The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ or Corpus Christi. It is a solemn commemoration of the institution the sacrament of the Eucharist. It is, moreover, the Church's official act of homage and joyful gratitude to Christ, who by instituting the Holy Eucharist gave to the Church her greatest devotion. "In breaking bread for his disciples, Christ gave us an example of what it means to allow oneself to be broken for the good of others," Pope Francis said on the feast of Corpus Christi (2016) explaining that it is the Eucharist which gives us the strength to do this. May we allow ourselves to be broken for the good of others - receiving strength from the Eucharist - to be the hands and feet of Christ for the world.

Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

Time: All Day

The Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus recalls Christ’s eternal love for us and brings the mystery of the Incarnation close to us. Jesus loved with a human heart and from the moment of his conception in Mary’s womb, the Saviour’s heart was formed and it beat with a love at once human and divine.

In Jesus, we are called to respond to God’s love with our entire being - to love one another as Christ loved. As John says there is no greater love than the sacrificial love of Christ, to lay down one's life for a friend (John 15:13). May we have the courage and compassion to love as Jesus loved.
