Notes from the Pastor


In your charity please pray for the souls of those who died this week.  Robbie Michael Richards II, age 21 was buried from Mother of Sorrows Chapel on Tuesday of this past week and Gladys Esther Gonzalez who was buried from Our Mother of Sorrows Chapel this past Wednesday.  Gladys was 77 years old and originally from Puerto Rico.  We received word this week that parishioner Jon Erickson passed away while visiting his family in Boston, MA. May they rest in peace.


The calendar says it is spring.  The blossoms on the trees say it's spring, the temperature says grab your hat, coat and gloves!  I'm not sure those white blossoms are not ice crystals on the trees!  Spring didn't spring very far.  Here's hoping for a better weather report in the bulletin next week.  


Pray for vocations.  We are getting close to the priestly ordination of Deacon Tim Lynch.  


The Lord be with you!


Fr. Kevin F. Lutz



From The Cat at 684 S. Third Street:  


I hear you people say "Curiosity killed the cat".  I used to think that was a pretty dumb saying. I'm reconsidering my opinion.  ---   The rectory chapel window was left open about a week ago and the screen was up and I thought it was time to inspect German Village.  I was outside for about five hours and now I am renewing my oath not to like dogs, cars, rain, mud, and cold.  Father went to pray in the Chapel and discovered the open window.  God bless his bones!  He went out looking for me.  He put on his cassock so I would recognize him at a distance and shook a bag of food so I would hear his approach.  My hearing is better than you think.  I heard him say a prayer to the Blessed Virgin.  It seemed like a good time to step out of the shadows and be reclaimed.  I must say, Father was very generous with the treats that night.  It's good to be loved!



The retired adventurer and guardian (through glass) of German Village.

If I knew nothing…if I had been taught nothing…still, the Great Being would know me. And would walk with me all my days, waiting for my heart to awaken. And whether or not I was aware of it, that same God who loved into being the petal of the smallest flower, the glacier, the deer, the rock, the galaxies of stars, would know the deepest part of me. -from  The Divine Spark
