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 Summit in Short North).  Services will be in the afternoon.  

 

This Sunday Pope Francis will canonize Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II.  Much to celebrate this Sunday.  

 

In your charity please pray for the following who have died: Lisa Landes (I will conduct her memorial service Sunday in Westerville).  Lisa, 33, died after a long struggle with cancer.  She was sweet and gracious to the very end.  Pray also for Ed Modic whose funeral I offered last Wednesday.  Ed was a veteran of the army and worked many years as the Monday cook in the soup kitchen.  He and his wife just recently joined here before his death.  Finally remember Charles M. Wesley.  Charles, 96, was the father-in-law to my little sister, but he also functioned as the grandfather to the entire family.  Three great souls have gone to God.  Among the many good words that describe them, this is one of my favorites: character!

 

For several months seminarian Edgar Ochoa has lived at the rectory.  At this time he has decided to go to the Franciscan University of Steubenville as he discerns his call to serve God.  He is looking for a summer job to make a little cash for college.  If you have a good lead, please call Ann and let her know.  If you wish to send a card to him you may do so:  Edgar Ochoa, 80 South Sixth Street, Columbus, Ohio 43215.

 

What an Easter this was.  All of Holy Week was inspiring and blessed.  Thanks to the deacon, all the musicians, the decorators, lectors, servers, ushers, sacristans, program preparers, cleaners and the like. Well done.  God reward you.

 

The Lord be with you!

 

Father Kevin Lutz

From the Cat at 684 South Third . . .

 

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.
