From the Desk of the Pastor
TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
With the Easter season well under way,
we now resume our survey of the sacrament
of the sick. The pastoral care of the sick will
be misunderstood if we start from the
vantage point of the sickroom. Begin with
the Sunday assembly, from which the sick
person has been separated by the crisis of
illness, and whose absence is given expression in prayer and service. The goal is to
extend the consolation of the Lord’s presence at the table to those who are apart from
it, and for the assembly to enfold them in
prayer.
Secondarily, the goal is to teach people
what the Church desires for all those who
are sick. Seeing ministers dispatched to the
sick from Mass every Sunday might help a
caregiver realize that their dear one can also
receive Communion. Witnessing the anointing of a woman facing surgery might help
another person to overcome hesitation and
ask for the sacrament’s healing and strength.
Society’s impulse may be to marginalize the
sick, but the tradition of our community is
to see them at the center of our life. When
Roman persecutors ordered St. Lawrence
the Deacon to hand over the jewels of the
church, he assembled a motley crew of the
sick and the infirm and announced with all
humility, “Behold, my lord, the treasures of
the church of Christ.”

Dr. Bob's Notes on the Third Sunday of Easter
A Real Resurrection...Every Sunday we profess that we believe in the resurrection
of the body because we believe that it was the fully human, fully divine Jesus who was
raised from the dead.
In Peter's speech in Acts, we find the striking phrase, "The author of life you put to death." It is
striking first because Peter identifies Jesus with the rather exalted title "the author of life" - after all, it
is God alone who is the author of life. Peter does not come out and say directly that Jesus is God; as
is typical of the writings of the New Testament (except, perhaps, the Gospel of John), he approaches
the affirmation of Jesus' divinity indirectly.
It is also striking because it says that we human beings have put the author of life to death. By
taking on a human nature, God in Christ has made himself subject to the most devastating of human
experiences, death itself. God, who is by nature immortal, joins to our mortal nature to experience
death directly and defeat it, as it were, from "within." In Jesus, God was embraced by death in order
to break death's grip.
We see this in the Resurrection. In today's Gospel, we see that resurrection means a real restoration of our human life, and not simply the ongoing existence of an immortal soul. We human beings
are a unity of body and soul, not simply a soul that is temporarily using a body. The risen Jesus has a
real human body, a fact that he is careful to make clear by inviting the disciples to touch him and by
eating with them. A purely "spiritual" resurrection would not be enough. Like the physical healing
of the beggar by Peter in the reading from Acts, Jesus' bodily resurrection shows that God truly is the
Author of Life.

Religious Education
This is the 3rd Sunday of Easter. During the week we remember St. Anselm, Earth
Day, Administrative Professionals Day, St. George, St. Adalbert, St. Fidelis of
Sigmaringen and St. Mark.
REP meets on April 22nd and 29th. We will have registration for the 2015-16 REP
year on the 29th. Please make sure that you have paid your 2014-15 REP tuition bill
by the 29th. Registration will take place in the REP office from 6-7:30 p.m.
Please join us for the Family Mass on April 26th at 10:30. The 3rd graders from REP/OLV will host.
Hospitality will follow in the school hall after mass. We will also welcome parishioners from
St. Pascal, St. Tarcissus, and St. Cornelius.
First Communion practice is April 28th at 7 p.m. One or both parents should attend the practice with
your child. Please come to the upper church.
First Communion is May 3rd at 1 p.m. in the upper church.
The Catechetical Dinner honoring Pat Tokarz is May 6th at Drury Lane.
Stay tuned for details about May Crowning!
In Closing.....We remember all Administrative Assistants this Wednesday. At OLV we have several.
These are the people who answer the phones, answer the door, and enter data into the computer and
keep the offices running smoothly. They are friendly, kind and helpful. On occasion they have to
deal with unexpected circumstances, and they do so with compassion and love. It takes a lot to run
an office smoothly.
At school we have Robin Webb, Lila Jahnke and Jeanine Brooks. In the rectory we have Chuck
Conn. They always find time to be helpful. Many times we have volunteers who give their time to
help out at school and/or the rectory. They are Eileen Bond, Jackie Brennan, Clara Spitza and Betty
Kane.
So no matter what capacity you serve in it is important to know your talents are valued. Thank you
to everyone who helps out along the way. Administrative Assistants are sometimes the victims of
“Ding, Dong, Ditch”, and “Anonymous Prank Callers”! Yet, no experience is ever wasted!
Thank you for all that you do to serve our parishioners and our families. It is always nice to know
that at the other end of the phone, or on the other side of the door there is someone who has a smile
on their face and the willingness to help.
Gratefully,
M.B. Frystak
