Notes from the Pastor
In your charity, please pray for the soul of George Jacobs (originally from Carey, Ohio, home to Our Lady of Consolation Basilica, who died and was buried from St. Mary's last Thursday. May he rest in peace.
Thank you for your presence
and good wishes on the occasion of my 37th anniversary. It's an off year
and so it was quietly observed. It was a bit of an
odd experience to see the priests and servers in the Sanctuary and
know that they were all so young that I could have baptized all the
priests who were there. Then as I scanned the congregation, I notice
that there was not one person present who knew me on the day of my ordination,
I was happy to
see people from all three parishes where I am serving now.
Pray for the good people
This Sunday is the Feast of Christ the King, a King who does not ask for blood, for He has shed His Most Precious Blood to wash us clean. Long live Christ the King!
The Lord be with you!

I miss the glowing orb of day. No hot spots on the floor for me to rest in. The table lamps just don't do the trick: too little light, too little heat.
