Dear Sacred Heart Family and Friends,

How important is life to us? How important is human life? These are great questions for us to ask anytime, but especially today when the Church celebrates Respect Life Sunday. October is Respect Life month. How important is human life to God? It is most important. Just as children are most important to their parents, we are most important to God.

Human life, from womb to tomb, is sacred, and the Christian cannot understand life, all of life, apart from God. Faith must inform all of our decisions, for it is faith which reminds us of the value of each and every life, a life created by God and set upon this earthly stage in order to reveal who God is. While the scientist can tell us how life begins, it is faith which tells us that all life is precious. It is only by faith that we come to appreciate more fully God’s gift of life, a gift worth preserving, a gift that should be clothed with dignity at all of its stages. We recently reconstituted our Pro-Life committee at Sacred Heart. If you are interested to help this very important ministry, please contact the parish office.

The month of October is also dedicated to the Holy Rosary. The Feast day of the Holy Rosary is October 7th. The month of October is a good time to commit to praying the Rosary every day. The Rosary will bring great peace and holiness to your life. We are the praying Rosary before all of the Masses. It is a powerful instrument for conversion. The Rosary is the best method of honoring Mary.

Please join us on October 4th, as the Sacred Heart school students present the “Living Rosary”. We will begin in the parking lot at 8:450am after the Communion Service.

The Priests of the Diocese will be attending the annual Priests Retreat this week. We ask that you keep Fr. Alex, myself and all of our priests in the diocese in your prayers.

In Christ & Mary Immaculate,

Fr. James CMI

Eucharistic Revival

Why do we call the presence of Christ in the Eucharist a “mystery”? The word “mystery” is commonly used to refer to something that escapes the full comprehension of the human mind. In the Bible,...
