January Article for the Rhode Island Catholic

For the past fifty years January 1st has been celebrated as a World Day of Peace. There is hardly a country in the entire world that has not been involved in wars, police actions, uprisings or violent oppression of human rights.  Does the Day of Peace mean anything or is it merely a pious idea pushed by the Pope year after year? This question can only be answered in the human heart of every person who has lived during these past fifty years.

Some have never heard the word of peace and have lived in the midst of and perpetrated violence in its many forms: domestic and international. Some have heard the word, embraced it for a time and then resorted to violence in their own interpretation of extreme circumstances. Some have heard the cry for peace, prayed for strength and courage to whomever they name as their god, and held fast to the desire for peace by the nonviolence of their own lives.

Reflexion for Christmas Day

Christmas Day

Greetings fellow travelers!  Our Advent journey ends today.  I am Winnie Odo, from the East (not the Orient) from Visitation East of Visitation Province which takes in New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia.  Together with my husband Gerald we live in a tiny fishing community in Lingan, Cape Breton much like the landscape and seashore that surrounded Jesus as he grew up.  Like Kathy Chadwick who began our journey on November 29th, I have been blessed by the CND Community and Associate Relationship for the past 17 years.

From the Gospel of John 1:1-18, the Mass during the day, these words “the true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world” resonate with me.  The story of the Nativity always reminds me of the light that guided the Magi to the place of our salvation.  John helps me see the inclusivity of Jesus who enlightens ‘everyone’.
