What the World Needs
The whole world needs to hear two things with strength and power: “God loves you” and “I love you.” You must say it often to your friends. This world isn't starving from a lack of money. It's starving from a want of love.

From the Pastor’s Desk….…


Happy Month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus!  I am a little late to say that, but this has been a very busy month.  May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored in all the tabernacles of the world until the end of time!


In your charity please pray for the soul of Barbara Blair whose funeral I offered last week.  May she rest in peace.  


Last weekend was an historic one in the life of St. Mary: the First Mass of Father PJ Shelton, SJ.  The choir did an outstanding job and added great beauty to the feast of the Most Holy Trinity.  A great reception followed and many hands and generous hearts made it wonderful.  Special thanks to Amanda Walker and Deacon Minner.  


Today (June 19th) I was interviewed for St. Gabriel Radio for broadcast on June 30 at noon.  It's part of a program called Gabriel's Trumpet.  My interview was a tribute to the late Father Richard Pendolphi.  I continue to receive calls, notes and assurances of prayers on the loss of my friend of 47 years.  Thank you for your concern.  


A new parishioner of St. Mary has written a book that you might want to see.  Go to Amazon and look up the book "No Ordinary Coincidence" by Donna Salyers.  Her son Nicholas, aged 18 at the time, died unexpectedly of a heart attack.  She has written a book that will be a great help to people who are grieving over the loss of a child.  Many unusual circumstances followed his death, leading to Columbus, the Jubilee Museum and even to me.  It is an interesting read and a book of hope after loss. Some of the coincidences are almost unbelievable.    


The Lord be with you!

From the Cat at 684 South Third . . .


It is an exhausting task, but I do my best to get my column done in a timely way.  The other cat, Frannie X, is most undisciplined and does not take to her responsibilities.  Her writing skills are lacking a bit of formality as well.  Oh, the burdens of office. Father has asked me to pose in your place if you have not yet registered for the parish directory.  I can make some crazy faces despite the limited facial musculature that nature has imposed on me.  So, please call and register for the directory ASAP.  Other than that, if the heat gets to be too much, remember last winter!

Heavenly Father, since the time of the Apostles

you have inspired the Church to commission certain members to assist in a special way
in the pastoral mission of Christ. Bless the deacons and all other ordained and non-ordained ministers that they may be humble
and faith-inspired in their service.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.


WOMEN TO WOMEN Listening Circle

All women of any age or life circumstances are invited to WOMEN TO WOMEN Listening Circle at Corpus Christi Center of Peace, 1111 E. Stewart Ave. on the second Thursday of each month. A simple soup lunch will be shared at

11:30 a.m. if you care to join us.  Our Listening Circle will begin at Noon and end at 1:30 p.m. We believe that women who come together to support each other by sharing and listening actually empower one another to believe in themselves in new ways.  Like love, wisdom is meant to be shared. Women to Women is a safe, non-judgmental, confidential place where we can be who we are. There are no requirements.  This is simply a place to step away, breathe and share with other women. No pre-registration is necessary.  Just come as you are. For information, call CCCoP at 614-512-3731 or email

This organization reaches out to meet the needs of those in our community who are struggling in these difficult economic times. Please be generous.

v  There is a signup sheet at the rear of Church for 5th Sunday liturgical ministers. We do not have a regular rotation for 5th Sundays and need help covering all 0f the weekend  Masses. Thank you.

v  This weekend is also a special diocesan collection weekend for Peter’s Pence, which provides the Holy Father with the funds needed to carry out his charitable works around the world. Please use your preprinted envelopes or mark your donation accordingly.
