From the Pastor’s Desk
Winter is eternal. Or so it seems! Remind me in July not to complain about the weather and the humidity. Even though the forecasters say this has not been the worst winter in living memory, it sure feels like it. I'd rather have the snow than the bitter cold.
Lent begins this week. Here's the time for us all to grow spiritually and as a community. Do your best to make it a time of pursuing holiness.
Here are a few suggestions:
Pray, attend daily Mass, pray a daily rosary (a great prayer to offer while driving), Bible reading, visits to the Blessed Sacrament. Read the biography of a saint.
Fasting and Abstaining
Don't stop at meatless Fridays try to abstain from meat throughout Lent (unless the nature of your work or health concerns would not allow that). If you can, give up TV (and you can), or at least try to give up non-news and the like.
Try 10% just for Lent, or 5% here and 5% to a worthy charity. God will never be outdone in generosity. Share your time and talent with others.
See you at Stations of the Cross as well as at
Have a most blessed Lent!
The Lord be with you!
Fr. Kevin F. Lutz
From the Cat at
For Lent (since I am a cat and incapable of sin, and therefore have no need of repentance) I will thank God that He made me to be a cat and give Him glory by my existence. I will do my best to exist. I will also pray for you fallen creatures that you become more devoted to God.
Father leaves his spiritual journal open and I look into it to see what's up. I noticed that back in August he wrote: "People ask me if I like St. Mary's and if they like me" Under that he wrote, "Well, no one's throwing rocks at me, so I guess it's going well" He wrote the same thing in his journal yesterday, and after it he wrote, "I really feel at home here. I think I'm falling in love with the place." See how fickle people are. I am wholly indifferent. Such is the nature of a cat. Where ever I can curl up, it feels like home and I love the place.
