Father Richard Metzger, Pastor of St. Mary, Groveport who is recovering from a stroke; Father Harry Schneider (retired) diagnosed with lymphoma. He will be convalescing, but will be going to The James for periodic treatments; and Msgr. David Sorohan (retired) who went to the hospital last Wednesday for a medical procedure to help with his breathing, which has been increasingly difficult for the past couple of months.
The above-mentioned priests ask for your prayers, but request no visitors or phone calls until their energy is back and on their feet again.

Congratulations to three of our St. Mary Grads who performed in the Hartley production of The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood. They are pictured above: 1) Sam Agra (Sound Board Operator) 2) Ben Smallwood (Prince John) and 3) Charlie Collins (Sheriff of Nottingham). It was an Academy Award Performance! We're proud of you and found the performance extremely entertaining and very well done.
The Lord be with you!

From the Cat at
The ridiculous no-pets rule prevented me from seeing The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood. I heard the pastor laughing about the show. He seemed to enjoy it. I wonder if they have ever made the play The Somewhat True Tales of the Cat at 684 South Third Street. Me thinks that I would not be allow to see that either!- Likely the only thing I will ever be able to see is my tail.
I did receive a letter from two of my feline fans, Sylvia and Chowder Brown. Obviously, both of these Cats are critiques par excellence as they pointed to some of the human errors in the publication of my first book. I also am edified to know that they are practicing sacred music with their choir member owner. I hope she is learning some unique harmonies to sing to the choir because of their distinctive training in Chant (see you can't even spell chant without C-A-T.) May Sylvia and Chowder continue to improve their proficiency in Latin. After all, the word Cat comes from the Latin Cattus.

This is why going to confession frequently is so important in the life of a committed Catholic. The graces you receive from the sacrament heal the self-inflicted wounds of sin and prepare you to receive the Lord in the Eucharist more worthily and fruitfully. -from Now What?
