From the Pastor's Desk

 

I have come that they might have life to the full.  Our Lord is the life, the truth and the way.  October is dedicated to Our Lady and the Rosary as well as the pro-life cause.  These are great gifts of God to the Church.  

 

We need leaders; we need heroes.  Most people have their own set of inspirations, from Steve Jobs to Mother Teresa (God rest their souls).  You cannot find a better model of discipleship than the Blessed Virgin Mary.  From the beginning, Mary trusted the Angel Gabriel.  She carried the Redeemer of the world under her breast.  She raised Christ with Joseph at her side.  At the wedding feast at Cana, Mary said to the servants, "Do whatever He tells you!"  She stood at the foot of the cross, then held her dead son in her arms before He was laid in the tomb.  She was there with the apostles in the upper room on Pentecost.  All Mary ever did was directed to the glory of God.  Indeed, a role model without a fault.

 

The Church teaches the Gospel of Life.  Life is sacred from the moment of Conception until the last moment of life.  To be pro-life is to love and safeguard life at all those stages.  No area should be without protection.

 

A quick word about abortion.  If that has happened in your life, PEACE BE WITH YOU!  Come see me.  I have the mercy and you have the need and the pain to confess.  There is no sin that will cause God to withdraw His love from you!  Remember the words of Our Lord: "Go and show yourselves to the priests!" When you hear that the Church is talking about the pro-life issue in general, and abortion in particular, do not fear.  Scripture tells us that fear is useless.  Perfect love casts out fear.  Sometimes others have been involved as well.  Come and I guarantee you will find a level of peace that is overwhelming and enduring. My greatest joy as a priest is to offer Mass and bring Christ from Heaven to earth.  My second greatest joy is to reconcile frightened souls and let them know that Our God is the God of second chances . . .and more. His mercy endures forever.  

 

May the Precious Blood of Christ give you peace!

 

The Lord be with you!

 

Fr. Kevin F. Lutz

 

PS: The 4:00 p.m. Mass on Saturday will be celebrated by Father Sylvester because of Father Lutz’s previous commitment to preside at a wedding. We will welcome Father Stash Daily to our 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday. Father Lutz will celebrate the Latin Mass at Holy Family at 9:00 a.m.

 

REMINDERS

 

SMALL CHANGE - BIG IMPACT!

Act of Charity for Life during Respect Life Month

Please help raise awareness and increase prayer efforts this Respect Life month by grabbing a baby bottle after Mass the weekend of October 5th-6th. Filling it with your loose change, cash or check will directly support the free, life-saving programs offered at the six area Pregnancy Decision Health Centers. The bottles will be collected the weekend of October 26th-27th. The Bottle Program is a great way to get the entire family involved. Thank you for your participation.

 

EXPRESSING GOD'S LOVE
Pray that each member of your family may always know your love and the love of God.
Remember that often your voice and your arms express God's love

SAINT MARY SPAGHETTI DINNER

The annual spaghetti dinner was again a huge success. We served over 800 meals that resulted in monies raised in excess of $5,000.00 which will be used for student services. We want to express our heartfelt thanks to all who came out to support Saint Mary School. A big thank you to all those who worked tirelessly to make this evening the success it was and our gratitude to those who donated food, deserts, and raffle items. Last but not least, a big thanks to our 8th graders for their outstanding service throughout the evening.

Congratulations to the winner and runner-up of the 8th grade spaghetti eating contest: Ben Smallwood and Andre Waderker.
