Pastor’s Letter
Dear Parishioners,
When Catherine Marshall said “I give up,” it did not mean that she
had lost all hope and had begun to despair. One author who wrote about
Catherine’s struggle with tuberculosis recounted that medicine and prayer
were not helping. She had read a book about a missionary in a similar
situation to her own. The missionary, at death’s door had accepted her
situation and resigned herself to God’s will, praying, “Lord, I give up!” Very
soon, she recovered. Catherine found the story strange but she could not
shake the idea and eventually prayed from her heart for God the Father’s
will to be done.
It is interesting that this was not the first time that Catherine had prayed
like this. As a teenager she deeply desired to go to college. The effects of
the depression had wreaked havoc on the country and her family was not
spared. Her parents were missionaries who served in Appalachia. It
seemed that the funds for a college education were not to be found. One
day her mother found Catherine crying, thrown across her bed. The
mother and her daughter prayed together. Catherine prayed, “Lord, I turn
this dream over to You. I give it up. It is in Your hands.”
During these days that our Church focuses on the family, father and
mother and children, let us encourage one another to accept those things
in life that we cannot change. Let us turn to God, following the example of
so many Catholic believers before us and face life following Jesus’
direction.
Jesus showed us the way to live and taught us how to pray. Let us pray
the words of the Our Father deeply, with conviction, deciding to live what
we pray, “ J Thy Kingdom come, ‘thy will’ be done J .”

LIVES
SAVED
We are just past 20 days in the forty days for life campaign. Eleven
members of our parish community have joined others to pray in
front of the abortion clinic by 12th and Locust. Untold others have
been praying here at Masses and in their homes for the lives of the
little ones in the womb. Over ten mothers have decided not to end
the lives of their children. Some of our parishioners have witnessed
that decision. What a gift that must have been. Maybe that child
will be the one to find the cure to some disease or serve others in a
grand way.
Thank you to all who are praying at home and in church. There
will be prayers after masses through the end of the 40 days. If you
would like to stop and pray at the clinic just stop over at Locust
between 12th and 13th streets.
If you would like more information - and especially if you would
like to volunteer to help, please contact: Monique Ruberu, M.D.

Next Sunday our 9:30 Mass at St.
Stanislaus will be celebrated in honor
of the 30th Anniversary of the murder
of Blessed Jerzy Popieluszko.
Blessed Jerzy Poplieluszko celebrated
Mass at St. Stanislaus Church. For
more info on his life visit:
THE MASS
When I prepare for Mass the acronym ACT may
help. Our preparation is so important to what
happens during Mass. ATTITUDE – Before
mass begins is my approach one of patience with
other people. I can certainly let that interfere
with my prayer and worship of God. CONVICTION – Deep within myself do I recognize that I
am to center myself on God almighty who has
created the world and all that is within it?
THOUGHTS – What is bouncing around in my
head? Am I bringing my thoughts back to what
will be happening at the Mass? Do I have some
thoughts about the readings that will be taken
from the Bible? Have I asked God to let me
have something from the Mass that will help me
to be the person I have been created to be?
Fr. Maloney started at the beginning
with his slide presentation on the
Eucharist. He identified Old Testament foreshadowing of Holy Communion
from the garden of Eden forward.
40 DAYS FOR LIFE
“As I stood outside of Planned Parenthood I
couldn’t help but feel the power of the Holy
Spirit working through me as I prayed for the
lives of the babies and the souls of the mothers
and staff.”

LITTLE BY LITTLE
Our life of faith naturally breeds within us the virtue of patience. The energy and time of unbelievers are spent trying to get in control and stay in control of the emotional and material circumstances of their lives. Men and women of faith struggle rather to surrender to and trust in God and
His providence. This surrender and trust free Christians of worry and anxiety and allow them to
focus their energy on the realities of the present moment.
Patience is the ability to endure prevailing circumstances. Our practice of patience needs to
extend to ourselves, our God, other people, and external situations. We should develop the ability to
be patient with ourselves by not placing unreasonable expectations on ourselves and by being realistic about our abilities. Our patience should also be exercised in our relationship with God as we
wait for Him to unfold His plan for us.
Perhaps the most difficult practice of patience involves other people. We all have our own
way of doing things. Some people do things that just irritate us. Their actions seem irrational, or
worse. In these situations our virtue is challenged. When we find ourselves irritated by other people
and their ways, one way to soothe our irritation and transform it into understanding is to remember
that we too at times irritate others by the way we do things.
Our patience is also tested when circumstances arise in our lives that are difficult, even painful, and that are out of control. Children often cause such grief to their parents. Children act
thoughtlessly, and their actions create a set of circumstances that cause parents much pain and
anxiety. Is there a person in jail whose mother doesn’t suffer? This is an extreme example, but in
fact, children are always imprisoning themselves in one way or another. With them, as with all our
loved ones, we most need to remember Saint Paul’s words. -from Matthew Kelly’s book A Call to Joy .
TODAY’S READINGS
The prophet Isaiah tells the people that the Lord
will prepare a feast and will wipe away the tears
from every cheek. Paul, who has learned to live in
all circumstances, encourages his readers to have
courage in God so that they are able to do all
things in Jesus who strengthens them. In the gospel
Jesus commands his followers to be generous in
inviting guests to the wedding. God’s invitation
goes out to all He has created.
