From the Pastor
on 10/09/2015  

The month of October is traditionally referred to as the Month of the Rosary,  However, one of the challenges that many Roman Catholics encounter when speaking or praying the Rosary is twofold: The first is: Why pray to Mary?  The second is: Why do you pray a repetitious prayer? The answers to these questions are simple: The first is that we do not pray to Mary, rather we pray with Mary. Think of it like this: You often ask people to pray for you, but is it not also nice to have someone pray with you? The Blessed Virgin Mary prays with us, her children and, through our regular times of prayer, she continues to intercede for us. The second question is even easier to answer: The Rosary is not a prayer that we pray without thought, but it is praying the Gospels. Each of the mysteries of the rosary are a visual for us as we contemplate the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This prayer, which has been and continues to be prayed by millions can transform lives, and it can transform the world.

This month I encourage us all to pray the Rosary—maybe you could join us for this prayer before the 9:00 am Mass as we gather to pray the rosary, or maybe you could pray this prayer with your family on a Sunday. The rosary is a simple prayer, but it is quite powerful. Through the rosary, we can be strengthened to go forth and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus with our lives.

I would be remiss to mention that October is also Respect Life Month. As we celebrate the gift of life may we also pray for the protection of all human life—that all life from conception until natural death will be respected and defended. During the month of October, may we pray in particular for all health providers that any procedure that does not promote life will be rejected, and that the gift of life we have all received from God will be respected and cherished.

May the Lord Bless You and Protect You.

Fr. Kalista

Ohio Ballot Issues - November 2015

Ohio Ballot Issues

In the Catholic Tradition, responsible citizenship is a virtue, and participation in political life is a moral obligation. Political rights are meant to be exercised for the common good of the nation and the human community.

There are three statewide issues on the November 3, 2015 ballot.
