From the Pastors Desk .
October is the month of the Rosary. Let us offer it for peace. The daily news is very disturbing with murders, threats and tensions. I will announce a couple of occasions for the rosary together. Mark your calendar for Family Rosary Day next Sunday at St. Joseph Cathedral at
Sister Vianneya, OP, came to visit
I went and took pictures of the altar that is coming to St. Mary for our sesquicentennial shrine. If all goes well there will be a picture in the back of the church for your consideration. IT is an impressive bit of stone.
The Lord be with you!

From the Cat at
I saw the nun today. I like her habit: black and white - just like mine. Sister is a Dominican. In fact, I may call myself a Domini-cat! Sister brought back memories of my old friend Sister Mary Francis. I used to go to her office and give her rosary a good workout. Whenever she walked through the house I'd follow her and try to catch her cord or rosary. Oh, I was young then and Sister was old. I could easily catch her. She seemed to enjoy our little game. Now there's a new Sister and she is young and I am old. Probably won't be able to catch her, but perhaps I'll get a chance to swing at her rosary for old times sake. Ask her to visit if you see her.
The nice thing I remember about Sister's rosary was that it looked like it got a lot of use. How worn out does your rosary look? I heard Father once say that some people, if they came back to life in the funeral home, might be frightened to find a rosary in their hand, and die a second time! Use it a lot while you're alive, so that it will look natural when you get the Final Summons.
