Daily Reflections

The United States Catholic Conference of Bishops (USCCB) is an assembly of the Bishops that gathers to promote the works and teachings of the Church. According to their website (USCCB.org) “The Gospel of Christ and the teachings of his Church, guide the work of the USCCB.”

Through the Catholic Communications Campaign, the USCCB provides daily scripture readings in text and audio form. They also provide a short web video titled “Daily Reflections” where approximately 13,000 viewers go each day to receive a meaning message regarding the day’s scripture reading.

The Diocese of Buffalo, through Daybreak TV Productions, has been providing “Daily Reflections” for the USCCB website since 2007. Priests, deacons and women religious, from our diocese provide reflections each Tuesdays throughout the month and are posted to the Daybreak Facebook page found at the top of this page. To view all “Daily Reflections” supplied by the Diocese of Buffalo, click on the link below. To view all of the USCCB Daily Reflections visit USCCB.org

Sunday Televised Mass

The Sunday Televised Mass is recorded in the Our Lady Chapel of St. Joseph Cathedral in downtown Buffalo. This Mass airs on WUTV-Fox 29 at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings and at various times on cable during the week.

Daybreak records 52 Sunday Masses in 4 four weeks throughout the year. This involves turning the Our Lady Chapel into a studio and the closet outside the chapel into a control room. Cameras, computers, a switcher, lights, microphones, an audio board are all brought to the Cathedral and set up to record between 13-and 15 Masses in one week.

We could not complete such a task if it weren’t for the priests, deacons, lectors and music ministers who help us, not to mention the rector and staff of St. Joseph Cathedral who gracious allow us to be in the Chapel for a week at a time!
When the recording is complete, it’s back to the studio where editing and closed captioning is done. Then dubs are made and the Mass is sent out to local cable companies and nursing homes.

The Sunday Televised Mass is not meant to replace the pastoral ministry of prayer and visitation in a parish, but as an addition to it. This ministry brings the liturgy into the homes of those who may not otherwise be able to physically attend a Mass.

Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima Statue in Bowmansville’s Sacred Heart Parish



      Religious art serves an important purpose in our faith, to uplift our mind to the spiritual and to help us turn our thoughts to God.
      At the parish of The Sacred Heart of Jesus in Bowmansville, NY this is evident in one of the most visible works there; The statue of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima.
This statue was created in 1948 by Portuguese sculptor Jose Ferreira Thedim, an internationally-acclaimed artist. He is best known for creating the statue of Our Lady in the grotto at Fatima, and the two “Pilgrim Virgin” statues that have toured the world.
      Father Earl Kleis, the pastor of Sacred Heart parish in Bowmansville from 1945 to 1954, had a special devotion to Our Lady of Fatima. When he visited Portugal, he met and befriended the sculptor, who offered him his working model for the Pilgrim Virgin statues. It is identical to the Pilgrim Virgin statues, but slightly larger. Father Kleis was over-joyed to be able to attain this statue for his parish.
     Before the statue was shipped from Portugal to Bowmansville, it was blessed at the Basilica in Fatima in May 1948, in the presence of 500,000 pilgrims celebrating the 31st anniversary of Our Lady’s appearance to the three children of Fatima.
      The statue was re-dedicated on February 2nd, 2014 at a special Mass with Bishop Richard Malone presiding. The Mass, that was extremely well- attended, involved over 200 volunteers to organize the event and the celebration dinner to follow.


      The statue of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima is presently displayed at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, and is part of a daily devotion involving the reciting of the Rosary after the 8:30AM weekday Masses.

2017 marks the 100 year anniversary of the visitation of the Blessed Mother to Lucia.
