Antonio Carvalho, who recently died; and Rose Marie McClanahan, sister of Richard Jessing and relative of Msgr. Joseph Jessing, founder of the Josephinum. May they rest in peace.
Sesquicentennial Curiosity: In the 1800s parishes did not keep good archives. Significant notes were sometimes put into the sacramental books. I've even seen old breviaries (priests' prayer books) that had baptisms and confirmations written on the blank pages. When St. Mary was dedicated, the "birth" was entered into the baptismal register of Holy Cross. The entry was in Latin, but says the following:
Blessed day, that is, 29 November 1868 the Church of St. Mary Mother of God in this city was dedicated by the most illustrious Doctor of Divinity, Sylvester H. Rosecranz, Bishop of Columbus.
I am sure that the priest who made that notation had no idea that it would be copied and mass produced 147 years later as you are reading it today. Father was probably intrigued by the typewriter that had come into vogue in that very decade. A computer would look like magic to him. Sorta looks like that to me.
The Lord be with you!

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
Taking back marriage for our children and families: Wednesday, July 15th, 7:00 8:30 p.m. at the Pontifical College Josephinums Jessing Center. There is much confusion in todays culture about the reality of marriage. We are left wondering: How do we protect our children from adopting distorted concepts of love and marriage? How do we promote the truth about marriage between man and woman in our society? William B. May, author of Getting the Marriage Conversation Right, and frequent guest on EWTN and Catholic Radio, will discuss the need for a new Marriage Reality Movement and provide a roadmap for reclaiming the truth about love and marriage. All are welcome to this free presentation sponsored by St. Gabriel Radio and the Diocesan Marriage & Family Life Office.
