Jeff ach of us is a masterpiece of God’s creation. This one line has been adopted as this year’s theme for Respect Life Month, which begins this Sunday, October 5th, in the United States. Each year since 1972, the U.S. Bishops have set aside the month of October as a time to reflect upon the gift of human life, to raise awareness of the injustices committed against it, and to pray for a greater respect for all human life—from conception until natural death. As Catholics, we desire to live in a world where each and every person is loved and treated with respect and dignity, especially those who find themselves on the periphery of society: the unborn, those with mental or physical disabilities, the poor and homeless, the chronically ill, the dying, and so many others who are considered “burdens.” ndeed, at the heart of the Church’s morality is the basic and most fundamental recognition that the human person possesses infinite value. When this reality is forgotten or disregarded, there is little to stand in our way of treating one another like objects, to be used and abused depending on the circumstances. The high dignity we possess as human beings is not something we can earn by our own merits. Likewise, it means that we cannot forfeit it or lose it. Whether innocent or guilty, whether old or young, whether healthy or sick—no matter what—every human being is deserving of love, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and protection. This is what we mean by unconditional love; it is the kind of love that God Himself has for each one of us. We can never forget that the call to holiness and the call to live eternally with God in heaven is not reserved for only a portion of the human race. Rather, in God’s house, there are many rooms (cf. John 14:2) and He desires that not a single soul be lost or separated from Him. oday, there are many injustices committed against human life and human dignity: abortion, embryonic manipulation and destruction, euthanasia, suicide, murder, bodily mutilation, discrimination, human trafficking, pornography, unjust wages, poverty, and so on and so forth. During this Respect Life Month, then, I call upon you to pray for an end to all injustices against human life and the human person, but, even more so, I encourage you to celebrate life and to live your life in joy. Remembering the words of Pope St. John Paul II, we must never cease to announce the Gospel of Life! Page 3 Points from the Parish & Community...

October 2014 Thank You God, for another wonderful Year! Thank you for an abundant crop and your generosity to us. Harvest is a time to return God’s generosity with special thanks. God entrusts us to manage the gifts He has given us and to remember His Church and our Catholic Schools. Please remember our Cedar County Catholic Schools Gala 2015 with a gift of grain or a cash gift for the Gala 2015 Grain Auction. Your gifts of harvest to Gala 2015 assists Cedar County Catholic Schools’ budgets. The Gala has helped our Catholic Schools with approximately $2.92 million in the past nineteen years. Gala 2014 raised a net total of $278,314.00 for our four Catholic Schools. The Grain Auction is over 22% of Gala proceeds and an essential part of it. Farmers, retired farmers and friends please remember Gala 2015 with a gift. Gifts of corn will be greatly appreciated as well as soybeans, hay and cash gifts, which can be converted to corn for the Grain Auction. Making a gift to the grain auction can be done by delivering grain to the Fordyce Coop, Hartington Elevator or Hartington Feed and Chick. Notify the elevator in person or by phone of the amount of grain you would like to give. Or call Merle Loecker at 402-254-3535 to arrange a time for him to stop for your grain donation. It may be more convenient to make a grain gift during the harvest season than later. If you would like to make a cash donation for grain, mail a check to the Catholic Development Office at P.O. Box 654, Hartington, NE 68739. Gala Grain Auction Committee members are: Darrell Lammers or Dan Kollars, Grain Committee Co-Chairmen Chuck Sudbeck, Clinton Becker, Alton Heimes, Mark Hans, Merle Loecker, Kurt Thoene, Brian Pinkelman, Gene Dickes, Mike Stevens, Roger Sudbeck, Stan Sudbeck, Tom Steffen and Richard Pinkelman.
