From the Pastor’s Desk


It feels like Stalingrad outside. Cold in the extreme, to say the least. If you would like to donate gloves, scarves or blankets, I will see that they get to our local charities in German Village as well as St. Lawrence Haven and Holy Family.  Suggestion:  If you want to donate blankets, I suggest you give the used ones from your beds and buy new for your house.  Most blankets that we give away are often ruined in a single day, as they would get wet and be abandoned.  Many people just need them for a night. Leave your donations in the back of the church or at the office during business hours.  


Speaking of donations, if you have a usable vehicle that you would like to donate, I often hear of families in need of a "beater with a heater."  A vehicle that still has a little life in it could be a lifesaver for someone in need.  You can get a tax credit for donating it to the church, and it will be passed on to a needy individual or family.  If you have questions, call the office and leave me a message.  


St. Mary has the hardiest poinsettias I have ever seen.  They look as good as the day they arrived.  It's hard to see the season of Christmas go away so soon (especially if you have not been celebrating it since mid-October!).  Soon another season will be upon us: Lent, and if you are a follower of the old Latin schedule, it begins three weeks earlier with Septuagesima!  Remember that word?  If you are older than 55, you may well recall it as the warm-up season for Lent.  If you want to start the pre-Lenten season, it begins on February 16.  Egad!  I'm gonna try.  


The first Sunday in February is the Presentation of the Lord in the Temple, also known as the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, celebrated 40 days after Christmas.  There will be a blessing of candles at Mass. Blessed candles will be available for the home as well.  Blessed candles are sometimes lit during storms, during family prayer and on visits when Holy Communion is brought to the house.  


Monday February 3 is the Feast of St. Blaise, the day on which there is a blessing of throats.  More details about that next week.  


Today's Grammar Lesson:  I am cold.  You am cold.  We is all cold.  


The Lord be with you!

From the Cat at 684 South Third Street . . .


So much work to do!  Resting and grooming can be so time consuming, that I hardly have time for eating and meowing

at the priest of the house.  We do observe prayer time together. Don't think that as a cat, I am unaware of the Supreme Being who made all things.  In fact I am in perfect conformity to His Holy Will.  Nor do I get out of line.  You'll notice that there are no Ten Commandments for Cats (nor any need for such, since there is no rebellion in our hearts).  We are cats and act like cats.  I hear you folks are made in the image and likeness of God.  Well! You should act more like it.  It may not be my place to say it (since I am not allowed in the pulpit to preach), but you should love and forgive more.  You ought to pray more.  You ought to help the poor more.  But then what do I know?  As you say I'm a dumb animal.  If I were made in the image and likeness of God, I'd make Him proud of me every second of the day.  I'd concentrate more on what is really imp- What's that I hear?  A can being opened?  Later!!
