From the Pastor’s Desk

 

Lent is moving into its most important time: Passiontide.  The statues are covered.  The saints are hidden, as it were, because the Gospel (on the old calendar) speaks of Christ hiding Himself until His "Hour".  The readings show a great intensity in the anger towards Christ.  Holy Week is the most intense week of all, and a reminder to look at ourselves and what is really important to our lives and our salvation.  A reminder that the silent movie "King of Kings" will be shown in our church on April 14 at 7:00 p.m. Try to live all of Holy Week with the church and in the Church.  Another reminder, this Sunday at 2:00 p.m. is our Lenten Penance Service. Come and experience the forgiving grace of our Lord in this Blessed Sacrament.

 

I spent a few days in Detroit visiting some seminarians and looking at some historic churches.  Detroit built many of its churches to hold up to 2,500 people.  St Mary would fit four or five times in some of these churches.  Sadly, a number of them are shuttered and for sale.  Hold on to your faith.  We must not lose an inch.  It was sad to see so many blocks of burned out houses and even churches.  Parts of the city looked truly cursed. I went to college when Detroit was in its last years of grandeur.  So sad to see that the city that had the highest per capita income and such a high number of Catholics has been reduced to its current humiliation. I developed a love for that area over the four years I lived north of the city.  Say a little prayer for Detroit.  

 

Today is my 8 month anniversary here at St. Mary. I must say the winters are worse here than in Franklinton on the west side. That's odd since we are at least six blocks closer to the equator here.  I think I will go to Gresso's this evening and even be six more blocks closer to the equator.  Hope it makes a difference!

 

The Lord be with you!

Good wishes to my devoted and growing number of votaries.  I recently received gifts and a card from one of my loyalists, Toni Neal, presently residing in Westerville. Toni sent a card, catnip and treats in a bucket.  Since I cannot drive and Westerville is a long walk, I will ask you to please visit Toni for me and give her my kind regards.  Tell her to get better and come and see me.  I am her senior after all.  At least send a card, if you are not able to visit.  A card from anyone in the church will cheer her up AND bring heavenly blessings to you!  Toni is at Heartland of Westerville, 1060 Eastwind Dr., Westerville, OH 43081

 

I'm looking forward to the weekend. The sun is scheduled to make an appearance.  When the pastor remembers to open the blinds, I create my own little beach "where ever the Catholic sun doth shine" (Belloc, my favorite author), and I relax for hours. God keeps rotating this planet, so I must move a few inches every hour, but I do need the exercise.
