From the Pastor’s Desk….…

 

In your charity please pray for Michael Molchan who died this past week and was buried from Mother of Sorrows Chapel Saturday.  May he rest in peace.  

 

Today (Thursday) one of the young priests came by and wanted to know how to administer the Last Rites in the old Latin way.  Exactly as we were beginning, a sick call came and instead of a class we helped to prepare a sweet lady for the kingdom of Heaven.  Please pray for Norma Raymond of Mayfair Village.  She was unresponsive until we chanted the Salve Regina.  She opened her eyes.  She could not speak, but I asked her to squeeze my hand if she could hear me.  She did.  I asked her to say the Holy Name of Jesus. She was unable to talk, so I asked her to mentally say His Name and then squeeze my hand again, which she did.  What a grace to be able to assist at the very gates of Heaven.  

 

Thank you for helping me celebrate 36 years as a priest.  From a cake to cards to many friendly assurances of prayers, I thank you!  It has been challenging, surprising, even confusing at times, but never boring!  What a blessing it is to bring Christ from Heaven to earth in the Mass and to bring His mercy to all who ask.  

 

I saw snow flurries today (Thursday).  Few flowers have survived.  A few roses are making a grand effort to hang on.  Soon will come the snows.   I move slower in the winter - not that I set any speed records in the summer.  Here's to a survivable winter.  

 

The Lord be with you!

 

Father Kevin F. Lutz

*************************************************************

From the cat at 684 South Third Street . . .

 

A kind soul left me some treats and a note about the beloved cat of that house who has died:  Edgar J. Buchannan Fluffytail Duren, 2002-2014, who was born on the West side (like me) but raised on the near East Side.  As a cat I am sorry to hear of a person losing a beloved pet.  He must have been an interesting cat to have been named after "Uncle Joe" on Petticoat Junction.  

 

You might wonder how I know so much about the homeless.  There are two reasons:  I was born homeless in 1998 and was soon orphaned.  I lived in the homeless camps until I was a few months old when I followed one of my buddies to Holy Family.  I was scared of Fr. Lutz (who isn't?), but soon he gave me a piece of baloney and I became his associate.  I learned a great deal when I went to the door with Father.  I did learn that street people need help.  Father seldom gave them what they wanted, but he always gave them what they needed.  A lady came to the door and wanted $30.00 to get a bus ticket to Cleveland because her mother just died.  Father asked her name, her mother's name and the name of the funeral home.  The lady didn't know what funeral home.  Father offered to call her family, but the lady said she'd be back after she found the name of the funeral home.  She didn't come back.  

 

Three months later the same lady came back to the door and asked for $30.00 to get to Cleveland because her mother was in the hospital.  Father said, "How happy you must be!"  The lady looked surprised and said, "Father, how can you say that!"  "Well, the last time you were here, she was dead, now she's in the hospital; she's obviously getting better!"  I watched the lady snap her finger like she was saying darn!  You have to have a really good memory to lie that much.  Do you want to help the poor?  Help the organizations that help the poor.  

 

Raphael the Cat and friend of my homeless (but not always honest) buddies.

Cost of the trip is $100.00 per person for transportation and hotel accommodations (based on 2 people per room). A hot breakfast and evening snacks are included in the cost as well.
