Notes from the Pastor
In your charity, please remember in prayer the soul of Ida Santaquilani, mother-in-law of Graziella Marchicelli of the Jubilee Museum. Her funeral was in Crown Point, Indiana. May she rest in peace.
This Sunday is the First Sunday of the Passion and the liturgy goes even further than just the abandoning of flowers and alleluias as has been done since Ash Wednesday. You will notice that the statues are all covered in violet. Part of the origin of this custom is that the original Gospel of this Sunday has the verse "Jesus hid Himself because His hour had not yet come." As Christ is hidden symbolically at this time so are the saints hidden from our view.
This week is the Feast of St. Patrick. Sadly, it always falls in Lent, so the vestments are violet. There will be no wearin' o' the green.
Thank you for being present at the "24 Hours of Prayer with the Lord" requested by Pope Francis. This bodes well for the hopes of Eucharistic adoration being established here.
Sheila Lutz of our staff, and my dear sister, was released from the hospital on Wednesday. She would be most grateful for your prayers for her continued recovery.
The Lord be with you!
Father Kevin Lutz
From the Cat at 684 South Third Street:
As you all know, March 17th is the Feast of St. CATrick. He drove the mice out of Ireland which made it much easier for St. Patrick, his companion, to drive out the snakes, since the snakes had nothing to eat. St. CATrick also gave Ireland its nickname: "The Emerald Isle" after his old girlfriend, Emerald McGilacatty. The Leprechauns were always very devoted to St. CATrick and always led him to the Pot o' Gold Kibbles and Bits. This legend was later corrupted by the greedy. St. CATrick is invoked against mice and people who read other things in the bulletin before reading this column.

PS. See how devoted my fans are! One came to church with her "cat" and her special ears
News Worthy Notes
It is often a good thing just to ask in the silent prayer of our hearts for what God wants for us, for how God will guide us through the blinding sandstorm of life, for God perhaps to suggest someone to help. No matter if there are no immediate answers. The important thing is to keep asking.

JUBILEE MUSEUM LENTEN EXHIBITION
During this season of Lent, the Jubilee Museum presents The Passion of Christ: The Crucifixion in Art, an exhibition from the Sacred Art Pilgrim Collection. The exhibition runs from February 12 to March 27, 2016 and includes 53 works of art representing the Crucifixion of Christ. In antiquity, crucifixion was considered the most shameful means of execution, reserved only for the worst criminals but by the 4th century, however, the cross symbol rose in prominence. In this exhibition, viewers will likely be struck by the sight of over 50 crucifixion images in particular by a special bronze wall cross done by sculptor Gilbert Jerome Singleton as a gift to St. John Paul II. Many of Singletons works are included in the collections of the Vatican.
For more information please visit the Jubilee Museum and Catholic Cultural Centers website at www.jubileemuseum.org or call 614-600-0054. A suggested donation of $10 per person is greatly appreciated.
