Pope Francis’ top 75 inspiring quotes
(more to follow in future bulletins)
1. “Jesus is the gate opening up to salvation, a gate open
to everyone.”
2. “God’s forgiveness is stronger than any sin.”
3. “To change the world we must be good to those who
cannot repay us.”
4. “We cannot keep ourselves shut up in parishes, in
our communities, when so many people are waiting
for the Gospel!”
5. “The perfect family doesn’t exist, nor is there a perfect husband or a perfect wife, and let’s not talk about
the perfect mother-in-law! It’s just us sinners.” A
healthy family life requires frequent use of three
phrases: “May I? Thank you, and I’m sorry” and “never,
never, never end the day without making peace.”
6. “Being a Christian is not just about following commandments: it is about letting Christ take possession of our
lives and transform them.”
7. “A little bit of mercy makes the world less cold and more just.”
8. “Instead of being just a church that welcomes and receives by keeping the doors open, let us try also to be a
church that finds new roads, that is able to step outside itself and go to those who do not attend Mass, to those
who have quit or are indifferent.”
9. “Dear young people, do not be afraid of making decisive choices in life. Have faith; the Lord will not abandon you!”
10. “It is the disease of cowards, who do not have the courage to speak upfront and so talk behind one’s back. …
Watch out against the terrorism of gossip!”
11. “Are you angry with someone? Pray for that person. That is what Christian love is.”
12. “How marvelous it would be if, at the end of the day, each of us could say: today I have performed an act of
charity towards others!”
13. “Jesus understands our weaknesses and sins; and he forgives us if we allow ourselves to be forgiven.”
14.“Not only does each person have the freedom and the right to say what they think for the common good, they
have a duty to do so, because while it is true that it is wrong to react with violence, If my good friend Mr Gasparri
says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch in the nose. … It’s normal. You cannot provoke. You
cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others. … There are so many people who speak
badly about religions or other religions, who make fun of them, who make a game out of the religions of others. They are
provocateurs. And what happens to them is what would happen to Mr Gasparri if he says a curse word against my
mother. There is a limit. … One cannot make war… kill in the name of one’s own religion, that is, in the name of God.”
Please join us for “Pastor’s Talk’s this Sunday, February 15 and next Sunday,
February 22 in the KC Hall for “Mercy in the City”, St. Henry’s Lenten Study.
Building the Domestic Church
As part of our preparation for the 8th World Meeting of
Families to be held from September 22-27, 2015 in

parents wedding, birth of each child, sacramental
celebrations, friends, and service projects.
Fridays during Lent we will have Confessions at
6:00pm. Holy hour begins at 7:00pm and includes
Stations of the Cross, Benediction, and Communion.
The following groups will host Stations of the Cross:
February 20: Knights of Columbus
February 27: Faith Formation (Children’s version)
March 6: Youth Group
March 13: RCIA
March 20: Catholic Daughters
March 27: Choir
Everyone is invited to experience this
wonderful Lenten devotion.

“Brothers and sisters, whether you eat or drink, or
whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God.” –
1 Corinthians 10:31
Do a quick check of your priorities. Where does God
rank in that list? If He’s not first, you have some work
to do. Putting God first in everything helps develop the
attitude of “ I am grateful for the gifts God gave me”
instead of “I want more”. For most people gratitude
leads to generosity.

Year of Consecrated Life
Pope Francis has announced a Year of Consecrated
Life which began on November 30, 2014, the
First Sunday of Advent, and will conclude with the
Feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple on

Open House event will be on Sunday, February 15,
