“Repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar,
and to God what belongs to God.”
— Matthew 22:21
For the week of October 19th, the Altar Bread used at the Altar was given in loving memory of
James Tomney from Christine Reisman.
October: the Holy Rosary and Life....
October is the month dedicated to the Rosary. It
is also the month dedicated to the protection of
all human life. The Church is the Body of Christ
whose mission is to help and defend the poor,
the weak, the sick and the helpless. The many
causes which the Church takes up are human
rights issues, and defending the unborn is no exception.
We know that once conception occurs we have a
human being. We have an individual separate
from the person of the mother even though that
unborn baby is dependent upon the mother.
Through ultrasound technology we also know
that the baby, who is about to be aborted, will try
to get away from the instruments that will pull
him or her apart. It’s hard to believe that a society, which can have so much compassion on sick
and troubled people, does not extend the same
compassion on the most defenseless. Perhaps
more education is needed. Certainly, more prayer
is needed for the unborn and for their mothers
who are in need of help.
It was through the Rosary that Europe was saved
from the invading Ottoman Turks in the 1571. It
is a powerful prayer. Through it we get closer to
our Lord, and we have the effective intercession
of our Lady. Padre Pio once said that Satan hates
the Rosary because, when prayed with the heart,
it conforms the believer more and more to the
likeness of Christ. The Rosary is the weapon
against the evils of the world today, and we
know that there are many of them. May we make
the Rosary a part of each day. Also, may we
have as our intentions the protection of all human beings from the moment of conception to
the moment of natural death, the protection of all
children and the protection of everyone from
So, October is the month when we are reminded about the value of praying the Rosary throughout the year. It is the month
also when we are asked to remember our
brothers and sisters who are not yet born.
May we pray daily for their protection and
Fr. Stanley

I sincerely thank Rita Huryk for taking charge
of the planning and execution of the parish picnic once again this year. I thank also those who
helped in the preparation and work of the picnic
day itself. Their efforts earned a profit of
$8,794.28 for our parish, an amount that is
much needed and appreciated.
Moreover, in spite of all her other work Rita
took on the responsibility of planning and organizing the anniversary celebrations of Fr.
George and Fr. John. Again endless thanks to
you, Rita.
May God reward you.
