Ramblings/Ministry Schedule
Page 3
A bit of bad news from the family, one of my nieces has decided to drop out of college. Maybe it was
the pressure of being on the Dean’s list, or the classes she thought “too basic,” still she needed some “time off.” As us oldsters know,
things you put off don’t get easier; if that were the case then colleges and universities would be populated by gray haired
cheerleaders with walkers and fraternity men sitting on benches talking about fiber in the diet and prostates. No it’s certainly easier
when you’re younger; in fact I’m thinking of sending Bert and Ernie (faithful canine companions) to college. After all they’re only eight
years old and can reasonably be expected to finish an undergrad degree in four or five years. Bert of course wants to take up a
degree in eating with a minor in fetching. Naturally he would join the intramural flag fetching team at the university, if they had
one. Ernie will be a natural in school and should look forward to his Masters of Arts in sleeping; given the study and practice he puts
in, a Ph.D. level in napping is not out of the question.
Unfortunately the fact is that neither Bert nor Ernie will be going to higher education anytime soon; have you checked recently
on what colleges cost? I thought Catholic high schools were expensive until I saw what they wanted for one semester at the
University of Nebraska at Kearney. The University does not give scholarships to dogs and there are no federal grants for any animals
hoping to hallow the halls of higher education; I know because they said so when I emailed them the questions. They do have grants
for people experimenting on animals but I would never let Bert or Ernie get into such programs. The only experimenting my pets do is
testing which part of the church lawn is greener. Many of you are thinking, “A work study program would help them pay for college;”
but regrettably these are my animals, so “work,” “hard work,” “sweating it out,” “putting in a full day” are not in their lexicons.
If you can pay for it somehow: work study, scholarships, the military or loans college is a great thing, but it does cost. What
does not cost is the invitation to the Kingdom of God. It is open to all regardless of money, power, sins or faults. The parable of the
king and his wedding feast is a lesson for us on who is getting into the kingdom—the bad and the good alike. It is the acceptance of
the invitation through the grace of the sacraments and following Christ that permits us into heaven. So what about the guy who is
thrown out of the wedding feast because he didn’t have a wedding garment? The garment we need for the Kingdom is humility; we
have done nothing to deserve heaven, it is Jesus’ Sacrifice that pushes us through the door of salvation. We need to be clothed with
humility to know that Jesus does it all. Father Rector

Last 300 Club Winners
Larry Cornelius $75.00 Saul Nuncio $30.00
Director of Religious Education
As we continue our spiritual and faith
journey a good way to strengthen our
relationship with Jesus is through prayer. In
today’s second reading we here "My God
will fully supply whatever you need, in
accord with his glorious riches in Christ Jesus". A great way to
reach Jesus is through his mother- The Blessed Virgin Mary.
This month of October what better way to teach our children how
to pray and live than by committing the family to praying the
Rosary together. Our Wednesday class learned about and said
the Rosary and so will our Sunday classes. Children learn more
about faith by those around them who role model and live by
example. It is in and through prayer that we grow as we heard
today -"I can do all things through God who strengthens me".
Let us all strive this month to be a Catholic role model to our
children/grandchildren/children of the Parish and encourage and
engage the children in prayer, Mass and Rosary.
Please check the Bulletin for Mass and Rosary times. The
Rosary is also said often on EWTN and Spirit Radio. Please
contact me if you are in need of a Rosary or information on how
to say the Rosary.
God Bless, Mary Rose

Cathedral Eucharistic Adoration
St. Mary’s Christian Service is having a
“Campaign for Camille’s Cupboard “in October.
This is in honor and memory of Camille Glaze for
whom our food pantry is named. Camille was a
very active member of our committee and was
very loyal in her service to working in the food
pantry. Camille left us for her heavenly home on
October 2, 2010. We hold her memory very dear. And because of
this we hope to make this an annual event in October of each year.
Hy-Vee, Skagway, and Super Saver are graciously allowing us to
have a food drive in their stores on October 9th,10th and 11th.
There will be container in each store named “Campaign for
Camille’s Cupboard.’ We welcome all non perishable food items
such as cereal, pasta and sauce, soup, fruit etc. We hope this will
help us stock up before the winter months arrive to help the less
fortunate among us. We thank you for your continued support and
generosity! God bless you! Shirley Murphy Chairperson Christian

Today Readings
First Reading — On this mountain the LORD will make for all
peoples a feast of rich food and choice wines (Isaiah 25:6-10a).
Second Reading — God will supply whatever you need
(Philippians 4:12-14, 19-20).
Gospel — I have prepared my banquet, and everything is ready.
Come to the feast! (Matthew 22:1-14 [1-10]).
“On this mountain, the Lord of hosts / will provide for all
peoples / a feast of rich food and choice wines” (Isaiah 25:6).
That’s what Isaiah tells us today. God is putting together a huge
party for “all peoples,” to “wipe away / the tears from every
face” (Isaiah 25:8).
And what does Jesus tell us? The reign of God, he says,
“may be likened to a king who gave a wedding feast for his
son” (Matthew 22:2). When the guests didn’t come, the king had
his servants go out “into the main roads and invite to the feast
whomever you find” (Matthew 22:9). We are called to deliver that
One of the themes woven into today’s liturgy is that of divine
generosity. Asleep to reality, people often think they have
“earned” what they have. In our better moments, though, we know
that all our gifts—even the spiritual gifts—come through God’s
generosity. Our vocation is to invite people, to remind them the
tickets aren’t for sale. We can only show up and say thank you.

St. Mary’s Cathedral Eucharistic Adoration Prayer Intentions
Vocations. That many people may hear the call of Christ and
follow Him in the priesthood and religious life.
Pro Life. That all people will come to value human life as God’s
precious gift to be accepted and loved rather
than a burden to be destroyed.
Holy Father’s Prayer October 2014
Peace: That the Lord may grant peace to those parts of the
world most battered by war and violence.
World Mission Day: That World Mission Day may rekindle in
every believer zeal for carrying the Gospel into all the world.
The confessional is a familiar setting in literature and drama.
Everyone from Doestoevsky and Shakespeare down the line to
Seinfeld has used the sacrament to tragic or comic effect or to
reveal aspects of character otherwise hidden. All of this theater,
from world classics to slapstick, has had a numbing effect on our
own expectations, and has skewed how the culture looks at us
and our struggle with sin and forgiveness, hope and healing.
Yet the artists are on to something. The reconciliation chapel
is a place where hearts are laid bare, where honesty is the
watchword, and people confess their deepest needs. It is also a
place of rebirth, or at least realignment. It is, like the baptismal
font, a place where something dies, and where something else is
born. Today, although literature has barely caught up, the place is
usually not the dark and gloomy cabinet of old; rather it is a
chapel that speaks of peace, serenity, and the comfort of a
welcome home. People in one parish were astonished recently to
see their children skipping with delight as they left the place of
their first confession. We have to wait a bit for world literature to
catch up with this reality, but at least we can experience the joy of
penance, the thrill of a new beginning, the assurance of God’s
love. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

. A medida que continuamos nuestro
camino espiritual y de fe, una manera de
fortalecer nuestra relación con Jesús es a
través de la oración . En la segunda lectura de hoy
escuchamos “Mi Dios, por su parte, con su infinita riqueza,
remediara con esplendidez todas las necesidades de ustedes,
por medio de Cristo Jesús” Una madera excepcional de alcanzar
a Jesús es por medio de su Madre Santísima, La Virgen Maria.
Este mes de octubre , ¿qué mejor manera de enseñar a nuestros
hijos cómo orar y vivir que por la comisión de la familia a rezar el
rosario juntos. Las clases del miércoles aprendieron sobre y
dijeron el Rosario al igual lo harán las clases del domingo. Los
niños aprenden sobre la fe de aquellos a su alrededor quienes
son su modelo y ejemplo a seguir. Como escuchamos en la
lectura de hoy a través de la oración es que crecemos. " Puedo
hacer todas las cosas a través de Dios que me fortalece ".
Esforcémonos este mes para ser un modelo católico a seguir
para nuestros hijos / nietos / niños de la parroquia y alentemos e involucremos a los niños en la oración , en la Misa
y Rosario. Por favor, consulte el boletín para horarios Misa y
Rosario. El Rosario es también recitado muy seguido por EWTN

Adoración Eucarística en la Catedral
Buscando historias de Adoración
Nos gustaría extender una invitación aquellos que están dispuestos a escribir un testimonio para el boletín. Estamos buscando a
personas que participan en la Adoración Eucarística para que compartan alguna experiencia vivida a través de la Adoración.
Puede ser una experiencia motivadora, en como la Adoración lo ha cambiado, una súplica contestada o su oración favorita que le
gustaría compartir. Lo que sea que motiva a su corazón escribir y inspirar a los demás.
Por favor de dirigir sus historias para la oficina de la Catedral ya sea por correo en una carta escrita en un sobre indicando
Historia de Adoración. Por favor de mantener la historia en menos de 175 palabras. Puede optar en agregar su nombre o puede
ser anónimo lo que usted prefiera. Se puede mandar por correo electrónico a: [email protected]
Todos los artículos serán aprobado por nuestro Pastor antes de ser publicados. Estas historias serán publicadas durante todo el
año, siga mandándolas a medida que sea inspirado. No nos quedemos con el conocimiento de lo impresionante que ha sido la
Adoración con nosotros…ayudemos a compartir la emoción con otros parroquianos, para así ellos también desarrollen el deseo
de crecer cerca de nuestro Señor a través de Adorarlo durante la Adoración en la Catedral.
Si usted anhela una relación profunda con nuestro Señor, usted debe considerar participar en la Adoración Eucarística. Las
personas que se comprometen una hora cada dos semanas, o hacen más tiempo experimentan una verdadera transformación de
Fe. Te pone en la presencia de nuestro Señor Eucarístico, proporcionando enormes poderes de intersección para las necesidades

parroquial 308-384-2523.
Queridos amigos en Cristo:
En mi propio viaje espiritual, es claro para mí que el Señor se sirvió de los demás para que me ayude a oír la llamada al sacerdocio.
Afortunadamente, yo crecí en una comunidad de personas llenas de fe. El ejemplo de las hermanas religiosas y párrocos tocó mi
vida. Mis padres tenían un gran respeto por ellos, y su santidad y carácter fueron apreciados en nuestra casa.
La llamó por su nombre 20 a 40 la iniciativa se centra en el sacerdocio y la vida consagrada, y destaca el papel de la comunidad
cristiana de convocarse a hombres y mujeres a considerar las vocaciones. Muchos sacerdotes dan testimonio de que el principio de
discernimiento fue provocada por una investigación personal de un amigo, un familiar, un sacerdote de la parroquia, un miembro
del Club Serra, o el alcance de los Caballeros de Colón. No hay nada tan poderoso como alguien diciendo: "Creo que sería un buen
Tarjetas de nominación están disponibles para la presentación de nombres. Las personas que han sido nominados serán

o una joven a considerar la llamada.
Gracias por todo lo que hacen para “orar y hablar” en apoyo de la iglesia y las vocaciones usted. Por favor oren por el éxito de esta
iniciativa y por todos los sacerdotes, religiosos y religiosas.
