From the Pastor’s Desk….…
May the peace of the Risen Christ be with you!
Last week was the glorious celebration of the Resurrection of Our Divine
Lord. This Sunday has several names: traditionally it has been
called Low Sunday, (to contrast with Easter), Dominica in albis AKA,
White Sunday (it was the day the new converts took off their white robes), Quasimodo
Sunday (from the first word of the introit of the mass) and Divine Mercy Sunday
(in honor of the new feast of Mercy in the church). Got all those?
They do teach us beautiful lessons about this day. If it has been a
while since you have been to confession (over a year = a long time!), this is
the day you can gain a plenary indulgence. Many graces and conversions
have taken place on this day. The Catholic Times lists many places where
special services are being held. I recommend Holy Family (584 West Broad)
and Sacred Heart (893 Hamlet at First and
This Sunday Pope Francis will canonize Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II. Much to celebrate this Sunday.

The Lord be with you!

Meow! Alleluia! What more can I say? Impeccable manners require me to thank many of you for cards (more than the pastor received), and the kitty treats (more than the pastor received). They are much appreciated. I will remember you as I rest before the altar in the chapel. Even a nap gives glory to God as it is that He made me and disposed me by nature to rest 18 hours a day.
Frannie X has made herself more than at home here. I must instruct her in the good order of the house. People have asked if she will be writing a column. Likely she will, but as the associate cat she must wait her turn.
