From the Pastor’s Desk….…


In your charity, please pray for the soul of Jim Langley, long-time owner of German Village Antiques.  Jim was a generous supporter of the Jubilee Museum and was a kind and generous friend here in the Village.  Also, please pray for the soul of Margaret Engle whose funeral will be Monday at 11:00 a.m. at Maeder Quint Tiberi Funeral Home.  Her husband was buried from here many years ago. May they rest in peace.  


Father Paul Noble, Director of Vocations for the Diocese of Columbus, will speak at all the Masses next weekend at St. Mary.  Under Father's leadership, there has been a rise in vocations and through his efforts he has encouraged many young men to consider the priesthood.


On Sunday, September 27th the Catholic Record Society will have their 2:00 p.m. meeting here at St. Mary in honor of our Sesquicentennial.  You are welcome to attend the meeting in the Parish Center Atrium.


Say a pray for the safe and inspiring trip of Pope Francis to the United States.  Our Holy Father will arrive on the 22 of September in Washington, DC.  While the pope is in our country he will canonize the legendary Franciscan Missionary, Father Junipero Serra.  He was the founder of the familiar California Missions which bear the names of many of our great saints.


Good News!  Deacon Tim Lynch has been assigned by the Bishop and the Josephinum to serve here on weekends up to his ordination as a priest. The deacon was praying that this would be his assignment.  May God bless him in us and us in him.  


The Lord be with you!

Father Kevin F. Lutz


From the Cat at 684 S. Third Street:


I'm not feeling too well.  It can't be missing the seminarians-- none of them were zealots for my needs.  It must be the weather.  Not that it changes much here in the rectory.  I'll figure it out.


I hear the Pope is coming to the USA.  In the world of cats, we don't have a pope -- we are all popes.  My papal/cat name (heretofore never revealed) is Pope Maximus Incredibilis of the Nine Lives Glorified.  You may call me Pope Max for short.


Back to your pope...Pius XII had a parakeet, Benedict XVI has a cat, Francis has an irresistible name and I have...a priest!!! (as my pet).  He is not as charming as a bird or a cat, but no one can open the food with so much panache.


I'd write more, but it's time for my papal audience.  I am excommunicating Fr. Droll today for denying the existence of my soul.


Raphael the Cat

AKA Pope Maximus


P.S.  I have been so busy I forgot to write about my new friend, Betsy Butler.  She found my column and then went back in the archives to read them all!  I had to send her my book.  She even went to the Museum as "Raphael's friend."  We are developing an interesting friendship.  More later!
