Notes from the Pastor
This past Tuesday I had the honor to preach at the Funeral of Officer Steven Smith. The crowd at St. Paul's in Westerville was undoubtedly the largest in the history of that church. The congregation included officers from as far away as New York City and Chicago and countless places in between. It was moving to see that other municipalities sent police to help cover traffic and other police responsibilities so our Columbus Police could attend. Countless and beautiful tributes were paid to Officer Steve Smith as well as many family stories. Pray for the police, pray for the city and may the good soul of Officer Steve Michael Smith rest in peace.
A special thank you to Father Droll who served as
Master of Ceremonies for the Liturgical portions of the ceremonies.
The Lord be with you!
Father Kevin F. Lutz
From the Cat at 684 S. Third Street:
There have been a few discussions about pain this week at my home where two priests also reside. It sounds very sad, but also in their words, redemptive.
I don't pretend to be a theologian. At best, I am a CATechist. I do understand pain -- pane though. Since I am getting older I experience a bit of pain when I rise from one comfortable repose to re-position myself in another. As a Cat, I endure that pain for the moment -- nothing more -- nothing less because that's what God asks us Cats to do with pain. From the talk I hear around the rectory (a fancy name for my house when it includes residing priests), you humans can unite your pain with Jesus and that gives it a redemptive quality.
The other pane I know is in the window where the sun comes through and bathes me in warmth and comfort. I guess, for humans you have a different kind of "pane" called grace. It fills you with warmth and comfort too.
May all your pain be redemptive and may grace shine brightly through the pane of your souls.
I feel myself evolving spiritually from a CATechist to a Theologian!
Raphael, in pain or through "pane" ever the evolving spiritual feline.
