From the Pastor
on 05/26/2016  

“I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.” (John 6:51) In our world we have many things that are proposed to us—for example “Money will buy us happiness; Love means never having to say you are sorry.” Of course we know that these beliefs along with others are not true; however, as Roman Catholics we have something that we can believe is true and that is: JESUS IS REALLY AND TRUELY PRESENT IN THE EUCHARIST!

At the Last Supper we remember that Jesus took the bread, blessed it, broke it, and gave it to His disciples saying, “This is my Body…This is my Blood!” Yet, today, there are many who don’t believe this. But I see Eucharistic miracles all the time! I have been blessed to see them over and over again since I have been assigned here at Immaculate Conception. Some of these miracles are: People sacrificing sleep to assist at

Mass daily; people spending time in our Eucharistic chapel at all hours of the night and day; and people leaving after the 8:00 am Mass to show their love by visiting with and bringing communion to the sick and homebound. Why do they do this? Because they know that Jesus is real, that Jesus is truly present. This weekend I invite you all to pray with me that each and every Catholic will understand that Jesus is not a symbol at Mass but He is really at every Mass and pray that each and every one of us who is able to receive communion may always do so with great reverence and with great love. Please join us following the 12:00 Noon Mass for our annual Corpus Christi Procession and our rededication of the Rectory Chapel.

This weekend, in Rome, the Holy Father has asked for a special Jubilee Celebration for Deacons. In the United States this celebration is happening in New Orleans, but, as part of our own celebration, I asked Deacon George Malec (St. Cyprian and son of the parish) and Deacon Paul Hlabse to preach during this weekend’s Masses. In case you did not know this the Permanent Diaconate was restored by Pope Paul VI on June 18, 1967. Since then Permanent Deacons have faithfully served the Church in a variety of ways

(Please look at Bulletin Letter of May 8, 2016). In this Jubilee Year of Mercy I offer a special prayer for all of our Permanent Deacons, but in a particular way may the Lord continue to pour out his blessings on Deacon Paul as he faithfully serves us here at Immaculate Conception. May the Lord Bless those men who serve as Deacons in the Church and in a very particular way and those men who are currently discerning a call to the Permanent Diaconate.

May the Lord Bless You and Keep You,

Fr. Kalista
