Notes from the Pastor
In your charity please pray for the soul of Linda Olvera, 46, who died recently of cancer. Her brother, Deacon Dan Olvera, was recently ordained. Also remember in your prayers the soul of Barbara Sweeney, mother of St. Mary parishioner, Patricia Moloney and Father Dan Moloney of Boston. Barbara passed away last Sunday and her funeral was in Connecticut this past week. Please pray for their souls and for the consolation of the families.
This has been a full house and a full week. Several priests and seminarians have stopped by. All enjoy the hospitality of the parish. Today (Wednesday) Daniel Mould, FSSP, a New Zealander, is heading out for his first assignment after a break here. Fr. Adam Travis, a priest of Alexandria, Louisiana, is headed south tomorrow after a short break here. The reaction of most guests: "Is that cat still alive? He must be a hundred!"
We have made the goal for the BAA and are actually over goal by a few thousand dollars. This is also a time when the belt is very tight. Many people travel and it is hard to keep apace of the bills. If you are able to throw a few more coins of the realm into the basket, it would be appreciated.
Long life and good health to you - and is St. Mary in your will? Preparing a will does not cause death. Many people die and then the state steps in and makes the determination. Making funeral plans and preparing a will are two very important things. They are also very sobering. Many people, as they prepare for the Final Summons, reflect and decide to mend a few fences that have been overlooked. . Oh, do not let us wait to be just or pitiful or demonstrative toward those we love until they or we are struck down by illness or threatened with death! Life is short and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are traveling the dark journey with us. Oh, be swift to love, make haste to be kind!" (Amiel)
The Lord be with you!
Fr Kevin Lutz
From the Cat at 684 South Third . . .
Several priests and seminarians have stopped in and many of them, unaware of my ability to understand English, ask, "Is that cat still alive?" Well! Fortunately, I am a cat of mercy and resist the temptation to administer a little feline justice. I must set a noble example.
I wonder if my hearing is starting to fail or is Fr. Lutz trying out for a part in a silent movie. His lips move, but I don't hear him. Can't always hear, even when he shakes the bag of kitty treats. As long as I get fed, all is good. So much of what people say isn't worth listening to, anyway. Cats never gossip. It goes against our inner sense of tranquility. Dogs are another matter. Yap. Yap. Yap. Like you didn't know that already! Say something nice today! Say it loudly!
Raphael - STILL ALIVE!!!
News Worthy Notes
REMINDER: next weekend, June 26th is the annual German Village Haus and Garden tour. The tour hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. which results in heavy pedestrian traffic. Parking also becomes more of a premium than normal.

ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT
Tuesday adoration began this week in the newly renovated Chapel. All went well. We are, however, looking for additional people to sign up for one hour between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. It is our goal to have a least two people per hour in case scheduling conflicts arise and prevents an individual from being here. Please contact the parish office if you can make this weekly one hour commitment to our Lord.
