Independence Day message - Aug 31 PDF Print E-mail

Archbishop HarrisFollowing is the 2014 Independence Message of Archbishop Joseph Harris:

This year 2014, our Independence Celebrations take place on Sunday, the Day of the Lord. Because our celebrations occur on Sunday, it forces us to make the link between Independence, the freedom from Domination by others and what Sunday means for us, believers and followers of Christ Jesus. Jesus rose from the dead on Sunday. He conquered death and sin, the cause of death and rose to new life. This is the day that we have traditionally dedicated to the worship of God. On this day we give thanks as we remember our deliverance from sin and death. In this year 2014 we also remember and celebrate our Independence. Is there a link or rather must there be a link between these two remembrances?

AUGUST 31 - ARCHBISHOP'S OFFICIAL + PDF Print E-mail

OFFICIAL

DEAR SISTERS AND BROTHERS,

A Happy and Blessed Independence to you all! As we celebrate this day of national pride on a Sunday, it is a reminder of the call to New Life, a life free from the bondage of the gods of money and power, comfort and pleasure, which keep us from living truly human lives. Let us rededicate ourselves – as citizens of Trinidad and Tobago – to the universal values which exist in all religions. These include respect for the supremacy of God; treating others as we would like to be treated; generosity; seeking after justice and truth always; and humility. May God bless our nation.

Please be advised that Bishop Robert Llanos and I will be out of the country from September 5–22, during which time Vicar for Clergy Fr Clyde Harvey will be in charge of the Archdiocese.

Archbishop of Port of Spain

Precious moments on D Avenue - Aug 31 PDF Print E-mail

REGENERATING THE MORAL AND SPIRITUAL VALUES OF OUR SOCIETY

By Vernon Khelawan

Channel surfing last Saturday night, I came upon a live telecast of “Pan on D Avenue III” and decided to take my finger off the remote. And I am glad I did! Apart from the fantastic pan talent, which bridged several generations, there was a distinct display of maturity in the large crowd.

Statement on Middle East violence PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday August 13

Brothers and Sisters,

All of us have been anguished by the events unfolding in the Middle East and other war-torn regions of the world over the past few weeks. Pope Francis has sent Cardinal Fernando Filoni, who visited us last year, as his special envoy to the people of Iraq. I have sent in the name of the Archdiocese a letter to His Eminence expressing our solidarity with him on this important mission on behalf of the Holy Father. The Archdiocese will also send a small contribution to the humanitarian work which the Cardinal will organise in the name of the Church.
