From the Pastor’s Desk….…


Welcome Father Charlie Klinger and the Joliet Franciscan Sisters who are celebrating our sesquicentennial.  Please know all of you reading this are welcome to the 3:00 p.m. Mass at St. Mary today (Sunday).


Sometimes I want to get inside the washing machine and set it for the spin cycle so I can slow down a bit.  My life's activity seems to fall somewhere between the tilt-a-whirl and the round-up rides at the state fair.


Last Sunday was a beautiful day.  The Blessing of Animals went well.  No one was bitten, no blood drawn, blessings imparted and a very happy spirit prevailed.


The Zoo Day was very entertaining.  There was a legless lizard that I would swear was a snake, but I was assured there was a technical difference and although it looked like a snake, it was a legless lizard.  I saw an armadillo walk by--it looked quite odd as it waddled along -- such an odd little creature.  The children were very excited when they saw a bob cat and a spotted leopard.  The police and fire department were there and demonstrated their equipment and the children got the opportunity to sit at the steering wheel of an enormous fire truck.


I will be in Rome by the time you read this.  Pray for a safe trip and I will pray for all your good intentions while I'm away.


The Lord be with you!

Father Kevin F. Lutz



The Cat from 684 S. Third Street:


Zoo Day!  Everyday here is Zoo Day!  I was not able to attend the blessing of the animals.  I knew there would be far too many dogs there. I did hear the good news that two cats came to the blessing---Milo and Francois.


I heard about the armadillo--- you must admire God's creativity, but for sheer overall design nothing beats a cat. I must point out too that the library shelf marked Great Works by Armadillos has one book and it's about leprosy. The book wasn't even written by an armadillo -- it was about them.  They can carry leprosy.  Egad!!  I would never bring something so ghastly in the rectory.  But enough. I'm glad Zoo Day went well.  


Peace From The Cat Who Is Happy To Be A Cat
