A Church Year with Libera (20)

Today is the Feast of Christ the King, the final Sunday on the liturgical calendar. A day to celebrate that God has put all of creation under the dominion of his Son who freed us from sin through His death on the cross. He who died on Calvary now lives and reigns in Heaven. Does this mean He is far from us? No, because all of creation is touched and transformed by His love, a love that is stronger than any other power on earth and in heaven – even stronger than death. It is this vision of faith, for now and the future, that can fill our hearts with joyful obedience to the word of God, spoken in full in His Son, Jesus Christ. To this cause, the boys of Libera raise their voices to praise Him and ask for strength and courage. May this also be the blessing for each one of us as we close this church year and we look forward to the new year, starting again with Advent.

Thank you to all who have watched this series. May the joy of faith and singing be always with you!

A Church Year with Libera (15)

Today is the Feast of the Transfiguration of Jesus. A mystical experience that calls on our imagination. Yet because of its fantastic nature, it also appeals to our senses. A dazzling light and a mighty voice not only overwhelm our eyes and our ears, in turn our eyes and ears direct us to the most important of our senses: our heart. It is there where our own transformation can begin, to start to see things for what they really are and to really listen to what God has to say to us.

Easter Triduum III: Holy Saturday / Easter Vigil
After the darkness: new light! The message is heard for the first time: Jesus lives, He is risen! With God, all things are possible, even love that triumphs over death. New life, rising from the water of baptism, as on the dawn of creation.
May the joy of Easter fill our hearts today and every day of our lives!
