Notes from the Pastor


Lent is moving right along.  How are things going?  If nothing else, Lent reminds us of our humanity and the need for self-discipline to assist us in living out our faith to its fullness.  The need to renew in our hearts our Lenten resolutions daily will keep us on the straight and narrow.  Although we are resolved to be better for love of Him, He is the one always by our side giving us the daily encouragement needed to continue our Lenten Journey.  Isn't that amazing to comprehend such love?


The Catholic Women's Conference took place yesterday.  If you were able to participate in this beautiful day of prayer and meditation, what a blessing for you. Next weekend is the Catholic Men's Conference.  I encourage you to pray about adding this wonderful opportunity to your Lenten Schedule.  You will not be disappointed or sorry for spending this extra time getting to know Christ better.


Another reminder that Stations of the Cross is available each Friday during Lent at all three churches.  Check your bulletin for the scheduled time.  It is a perfect meditation as we journey through Lent. 


The Lord be with you!


Father Kevin F. Lutz



From the Cat at 864 S. Third Street:


These drastic changes is the weather -- very cold -- then very snowy -- then springlike -- must be difficult for those humans who need to go from here to there in it. So happy all I need to do is enjoy the warmth of the rectory all day and night.  But I just don't meander throughout the house all day doing nothing.  I look out for any cat toys that are out of place and see that after playing with them they are appropriately returned to where I found them -- everything in its place!  That keeps me very busy, so several naps during the day are of extreme importance and certainly necessary to my good health.  Moderation in work, play and lots of sleep -- that's one of my many mottoes for a long life.

Jesus really cannot be merely a part of our life; he must be the center of our life. Unless we preserve some quiet time each day to sit at his feet, our action will become distraction, and we’ll be unhappy.
