Divine Mercy Sunday
PASTOR’S COLUMN
CAPITAL CAMPAIGN NEWS
The statue of Pope St. John Paul II has graced our
parish church since last April when the saintly pope
was canonized along with another twentieth century
pope, St. John XXIII. St. John Paul is fondly recalled this Sunday, the Octave of Easter, also known
as Divine Mercy Sunday. Our present Holy Father,
Pope Francis, a most popular figure on the world
stage often speaks of the mercy of God and how we
Christians are called to mirror that mercy of God toward our neighbor. The corporal and spiritual works
of mercy should be the measure of our daily living:

Divine Mercy Sunday
EUCHARISTIC ADORATION
Has there ever been a time in human history
when we have needed God’s Divine Mercy, love
and guidance more? Pope St. John Paul II said,
“Anyone who prays to our Saviour (in the
Blessed Sacrament) draws the whole world with
him and raises it to God. Through Adoration, the Christian
mysteriously contributes to the radical transformation of the
world.” (Letter to the Bishop of Liege, 1966)
You are invited to spend some time,
Whether it be a few minutes or an hour,
With God in prayer, spiritual reading or silence.
THE BLESSED SACRAMENT IS EXPOSED
EVERY TUESDAY FROM 8:45 A.M.
TO WEDNESDAY AT 6:00 A.M.
For more information, contact the Parish Office, 846-8207, ext. 200
As the focus of this year, let us call to mind
the Prayer of St. Francis where we ask God
to use us “as an instrument of his peace”.
The ACA, through the generous donations
of parishioners provides “Love, Faith, Hope,
Light and Joy” to so many who otherwise
would be forgotten.
Looking to build a committee of volunteers
to assist in the successful implementation of
the Annual Catholic Appeal that will be running the weeks of April 19, April 26 and
May 3. If interested or to learn more about
how you can help, please call Bernadette

I wish to thank all of you for your prayers since my recent
fall. The MRA indicated no aneurysm. However, the
MRI shows a tumor on the pituitary. The good news is
that it is benign. I will be consulting a neurologist to see
where we proceed from here. I appreciate your continued
prayers.
Thanks and God bless,
Deacon Rich

UPDATE
EMERGENCY APPEAL FOR
REMEDIATION COVERAGE AND HVAC SYSTEMS
IN SCHOOL AND LIMBACH HALL
Queen of All Saints Parish is asking all parishioners and
friends of the parish for contributions to cover the cost of
remediating the school and church hall last summer, and
to cover the cost of repairs to or replacement of the
HVAC systems in the school and Limbach Hall.
The
Finance Council is asking each donor to contribute an
extra donation in addition to their ordinary weekly or
monthly offering for these expenses. A special “Mold
Remediation Appeal” envelope is contained in the
monthly envelope packet. Donations may also be made
through Faith Direct (enroll at the parish office or online
at Faith Direct; the QAS parish code is MO86). Last fall,
the parish expended $465,000 for remediation repairs in
the school and the church hall. The Capital Improvement
Committee estimates the expense of the HVAC solution for the school building will be $350,000. And recently a new boiler ($60,000) was installed in Limbach
Hall, an expense unrelated to the mold issue. The parish
Finance Council appr eciates ever y family’s assistance
in providing for these extraordinary expenses which obviously were not known at the time the current budget was
approved last spring.
NEW FROM LIGHTHOUSE CATHOLIC MEDIA
Pope John Paul II said that Divine
Mercy is THE message for the third
millennium and God's gift to our
time. There is nothing that mankind
needs more than Christ's Divine
Mercy. To help us avail ourselves of
that loving mercy, Fr. Brooks focuses on what we know of God's Mercy,
our response to His Love, how we
can become merciful to others, and
how to become apostles of mercy.
Kitty Cleveland is an award-winning
singer, songwriter and actress who
has been delighting audiences for
over 25 years. She has appeared five
times as a guest on EWTN's "Life on
the Rock" series. This CD features
the Divine Mercy Chaplet set to music written by Kitty and sung by her
with a children's choir, as well as
songs from a selection of her CDs. A
bonus segment from Kitty's stirring testimony follows.

Oremus – A Guide to Catholic Prayer
8 part study
Presented by
Fr. Mark Toups
Do you find it easy to pray?
For most of us, prayer becomes a source of
frustration as we struggle to calm our minds
and to find even a few minutes to pray. In our busy lives,
prayer is seen as a luxury, when in reality it is at the foundation of a healthy spiritual life.
The good news is that you can overcome your difficulties
with prayer, and it is easier than you might think.
Over the course of eight weeks, the Oremus study program
teaches you the essentials of an effective and fruitful prayer
life.

The Little White Book
Six-minute reflections on the
Resurrection Narrative
according to John
The Little W hite Book is meant to help you enjoy six
minutes of prayer each day during the 50 days of the Easter
season.
The left-hand page is like a buffet table with a variety of
items: Catholic traditions and customs, the saint of the day,
historical facts, and information pieces.
But the key is the right-hand page. On that page each day
(except Sundays) you will walk through the final two chapters
of John’s Gospel. These reading begin early Easter Sunday
morning when Jesus’ tomb is discovered to be empty, and then
continue with accounts of the appearances of the risen Jesus,
through to the end of the Gospel.
The stories you will read are familiar ones. But you’ll read
them in a way that might be unfamiliar to some – line by line,
right through to the end. When you normally hear the Gospels
proclaimed at the Eucharist on Sundays of the Easter season,
you hear short selections from one Gospel, then another, and so
on.
That has its value, but to read a whole Gospel, or a whole
section of a Gospel line by line, consecutively, can be a very
different experience.
Reading it this way, you may notice some things you hadn’t noticed before.
Six minutes a day is all it takes!
Take one – they are free!
(Books are available on the tables at the back of church
and in the vestibule.)

In this presentation, Matthew Leonard focuses on the new idea of
love proclaimed by Christ and how it gives meaning to human suffering, penance, and ultimately death. Sounds a bit dark, doesn't it?
But it's not! By looking at these issues we'll discover the secret to
how we can "Rejoice in the Lord always" just like St. Paul, no matter what happens.
The Holy Shroud of Turin was called the greatest relic in Christendom by Pope John Paul II. In fact, the Shroud is the most studied
scientific object in the entire world. Fr. Peffley presents new and
detailed scientific and medical evidence for the authenticity of the
Holy Shroud. This presentation brings greater clarity as to the
depth of the agony of our Lord's sorrowful Passion, which he voluntarily took on for love of us.
Come to grips with “what really happened to Jesus” as Dr. Steven
Smith explores Resurrection narratives from the vantage point of
each of the four Gospels as well as many of the vital medical details of Roman crucifixion.
Dr. Steven Smith is a professor of Sacred Scripture at Mount Saint
Mary's Seminary, in Emmitsburg, Maryland. Dr. Smith earned his
Ph.D from Loyola University in Chicago, where he specialized in
the study of the Gospels and their relationship to the Old Testament.
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen was one of the best-known and bestloved Catholic orators of the twentieth century, reaching millions of
Christians of all denominations. Presented here are his timeless reflections on the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of our Lord, combined with Scripture and Gregorian Chant to create a powerful
presentation that is sure to become a family favorite.
