These photos will be placed on the altar rail for one week in remembrance of their life. Then on All Soul’s Day, the photos will be incensed and blessed during Mass.

Monsignor’s Message – Independence Day

This is a message from Msgr. Kieran Harrington, Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn that appears in The Tablet:

The America experiment began 241 years ago. Our founding fathers discerned that all human beings have certain natural rights that were bestowed upon us, not from a monarch or government, but from Almighty God. This assertion of inalienable rights and the corresponding claim of national sovereignty placed our fledgling nation on a path to war with Great Britain. Blood was spilled and a nation was born. As we celebrate our national independence, let us never forget the risk and sacrifice of our forefathers. May God grant us the same courage as we confront the particular challenges we face in the modern era.

May God bless you,
Monsignor Kieran Harrington, V.E.

Monsignor’s Message – Corpus Christi Sunday

This is a message from Msgr. Kieran Harrington, Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn that appears in The Tablet:

Corpus Christi Sunday is one of my favorite celebrations in the liturgical calendar. In a mystical way, at each Mass, we stand beside Christ at Calvary. Not all Christians share this belief. Baptists, Pentecostals, and non-denominational churches are all non-liturgical communities. These services are a mixture of scripture and preaching, prayer and praise. The charismatic nature of these worships is appealing to many. The focus is on the experience of the worshipper. Catholics, Orthodox churches, Lutherans, and Episcopalians all belong to liturgical communities. We all place an emphasis on Eucharistic celebrations. Our worships are very similar. Despite these similarities in worships, the theological differences are significant. By the laying of hands, our priests act in the person of Christ the Head of the Church and they represent for us the saving acts of Christ. The power of the words of our Lord manifested as His own Body and Blood upon the Altar. Saint Thomas Aquinas explained that even as the chemical composition is the same (accident), the underlying reality (substance) is now the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ. How can we fail in gratitude to worship so great a mystery?

May God bless you,
Monsignor Kieran Harrington, V.E.

Monsignor’s Message – Easter Sunday

This is a message from Msgr. Kieran Harrington, Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn that appears in The Tablet:

He is risen! Our Easter celebration is the Lord’s victory over sin and death. In these last forty days, we have fasted and prayed. We have sought to purify our hearts and put to death inordinate desires. Some of us are in bondage to anger and resentment, others are captive to addictions, others struggle with sadness or ill health. Christ will nail all these to the cross. We are like the good thief, convicted and justly condemned. Yet, if we acknowledge our sins and but beg the Lord to remember us – we can be sure to share with Him eternal life.

May God bless you.
Monsignor Kieran Harrington, V.E.
