On November 13, 2016, the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church of the Resurrection in Dauphin welcomed Bishop Peter Stasiuk of Melborne,  Australia.  Bishop Peter co- celebrated the Divine Liturgy with our pastor, the Very Reverend Father Oleg Bodnarski.  In his Homily the Bishop emphasized the importance of the new Catechism of our church that is now available for purchase. He stressed the importance of this Catechism to be in every home of our Parish so that all can become knowledgeable about our Catholic faith and our Divine Liturgy. In the second part of his homily,  Bishop Peter talked about the theme in the Sunday's Gospel (Luke 18:18-27) where many feel the need to accumulate wealth and material things but fail to realize that saving their soul and staying close to Jesus is what will matter most in the end.

Luke 18:18-27…. (rsv)
The Rich Official.
And a ruler asked him, "Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" And Jesus said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: `Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.'" And he said, "All these I have observed from my youth." And when Jesus heard it, he said to him, "One thing you still lack. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me." But when he heard this he became sad, for he was very rich.
On Riches and Renunciation.
Jesus looking at him said, "How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God! For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Those who heard it said, "Then who can be saved?" But he said, "What is impossible with men is possible with God."
