Fr Prasanth's Reflection for the 3rd Sunday of Easter

Sharing Fr Prasanth's reflection for the Third Sunday of Easter.
Dear Friends,
Greetings and blessings on this Sunday.
Hope you are all well, and praying for you all.
Attached is a Reflection on our Jubilee Prayer, as we are looking forward to our jubilee celebration let us keep the jubilee thoughts alive in our prayers.
On Friday 1 May 2020, the Catholic Bishops of Canada will consecrate their individual dioceses or eparchies to Mary, Mother of the Church, seeking her protection during the Coronavirus pandemic, similar to what other Episcopal Conferences throughout the world have already done. Along with the Bishops, pastors, families, groups, individuals and other faith communities may likewise, choose to join the consecration as part of the global effort to unite in faith and prayer in this most difficult time.
The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), in fraternal communion with the leadership of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), has agreed that this Marian consecration be held on the same day in both countries, making this a most meaningful and powerful intercession throughout North America to the Blessed Mother. The Bishops of Mexico, as well as the other countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, consecrated their dioceses and eparchies to Mother Mary this past Easter Sunday. As I receive the consecration prayers I will pass it on to you.
The Emmaus story is the living paradigm for our everyday life journey. It strongly suggests making our journey in life with others, sharing our faith and our doubts and concerns with them especially at this time when we are frightened and devastated by the deadly COVID-19. The house of the two disciples walking and living with dissuasions and disappointments have now transformed into a sanctuary of peace and joy with the presence of Risen Christ who broke and blessed the bread at their house.
During these alarming and disturbing days of social distancing, self-isolation, quarantine, lockdown, and uncertainty, let us experience the transforming presence of the Lord in our home, the ‘sanctuary’, the ‘domestic church’ when we participate in the Holy Mass, reflect on the Word of God and follow other forms of prayer by way of television or live streamed broadcasts (Vision TV / Salt +Light television / (see Online Masses and Resources) / EWTN etc.).
