Notes from the Pastor


In your charity please pray for the soul of John “Jack” Phillips, lifelong “south-ender” and member of St. Leo and then St. Mary. Jack served the Columbus Fire Department and the OSU Heart Mobile as a paramedic for 31 years.  Jack was buried from St. Leo by Father Droll this past Wednesday. May he rest in peace.  


A minor era has come to an end:  Fr. Tim Lynch has left St. Mary for his new assignment at St. Michael, Worthington.  I have known him for many years.  I first met him at Our Lady of Fatima School.  Later he worked for me at Holy Family.  Finally he entered the seminary and served here as a deacon.  Now as a priest I have seen a great transformation as he goes forth as a newly ordained and zealous priest.  Keep him in your prayers.  Pray for vocations.  


The festival is coming.  Volunteers are needed.  (Of course, I am not talking to you.  I am talking to the person sitting behind you.  If you are behind the person who is sitting behind reading this, please volunteer).  


As I mail out and ship out the final earthly treasures of Fr. Pendolphi, I am reminded of the need to have a Will. Making out a Will does not cause death.  It does not summon the Grim Reaper (really!).  Without a Will, the state takes over and send things to people you may not have wanted to be the recipients and ignores those you have chosen.  Make out a Will.  Sign it.  Have two witnesses sign it.  A high number of people die without a Will and not making it out did not prevent the Final Summons. Speaking of Wills, among many worthy recipients, make a space for St. Mary.   Many good things have been accomplished here because a Will was settled and there was money to fix something or help the school.  


The Lord be with you!


Fr. Kevin Lutz



From the Cat at 684 South Third . . .


The house looks a little emptier.  Father Pendolphi's earthly goods have all gone out the door.  Cats have a very keen sense of smell.  It always felt like he was there along with his dog.   All that remained was boxes of games, videos and books.  Cats are not savers.  My library (consisting of the two books I wrote) is in the hands of others.  You can learn a lesson from cats.  Don't get too attached to things.  They won't love you back.  Only three can love you:  God, people, and pets.  And that is the correct order they come in - as I have been informed from on High, since pets are meant to be special friends of people and help them be better by learning how to be loving and caring.  


I have found a new pillow in the chapel.  It is my new resting place.  Rest in the Lord, I say.  Do the same.  A nap is a wonderful thing.  Take one and dedicate it to God.  I bet you sleep better.  




"Better living through napping."

To the Good People of St. Mary

Thank you for all of your prayers, love and support during my blessed time with you all. I was truly blessed and learned so much. While I am sad that my time at St. Mary is coming to an end I ask that you continue to pray for me as I transition into my new role as a priest at St. Michael. I will continue to pray for you all. I will try to come back and visit from time to time.              God bless, Father Tim Lynch

The Holy Spirit is within us, calling us to think about God, see where God really is and what God is saying in his Word. Gradually, the realization builds within us that God is our Father, Jesus is our brother, and the Spirit gives us a share in the divine life. We can experience always the great mysteries of God’s love and his salvation in Christ.
