A Word From The Pastor
Princess Diana’s Liberation Theology: Before her tragic death in 1997, Princess Diana was championing the cause of those who had been victims of land-mine explosions. In the weeks following her funeral, the video footage of her last visit to Bosnia ran again and again on televised news programs. Featured in the footage was the Princess, reaching out in compassion to those who had survived the explosion but who would have to live the rest of their lives maimed by the loss of one or more of their limbs. Her care for these wounded members of society was a poignant reminder of what Paul teaches in today’s second reading. Just as every part or member of the human body is necessary to the well-being of the whole person, so is every member of the human family necessary to the well-being of the Body of Christ. Therefore, each member must be cherished, valued, respected and protected by all the other members. Let us always respect and cherish one another.
How Friendly Are We?: “I was a stranger…. and you welcomed me”. Mathew 25: 35. I am very fortunate to have a wonderful parish with wonderful people here at Precious Blood. We know our Church is our second family. Make sure when you come to church to at least talk to one person that you haven’t talked to recently or someone you haven’t met. Please introduce yourselves to another person and continue to make this Church a place of God’s love. Don't wait for someone to talk to you or introduce them to you but rather take the initiative to be Christ first to the other person. ‘In the Kingdom of God strangers on the doorstep represent a gift and opportunity from God.” – Michael Knowles.
Friends of the Youth: John Bosco was born on August 16, 1815 in Italy. From early childhood on, our Lord and our Lady repeatedly inspired him in what he termed his “dream”, to rescue young lads from evil ways and to train them in an honest trade- but only by gentleness and kindness. After his ordination he set out deliberately to cultivate every means for gaining their confidence and friendship: juggling, sleight-of-hand tricks, tight-rope walking, playing the violin, singing, telling stories, games etc. These he would begin and end with a simple catechism instruction, the recitation of the rosary or an explanation of days Gospel. Don Bosco, as he fondly came to be known, could read the hearts of his pupils, and they in turn knew him to be a saint. He died on January 31, 1888. As we honor this great saint of the young we seek his intercession that our youth will make right choices and right decisions in their daily life.
The Monk and the Mouse: Once there was a monastery that had a very strict rule: the monks were never to complain about the food, except out of concern for the well being of the other brethren. One day a monk named Brother Thomas was shocked to find a mouse in his soup. He couldn’t complain about it, so what was he to do? Then an inspiration came to him. He called the monk serving as waiter that day, pointed to the monk on his right, and whispered, “Brother Michael doesn’t have a mouse in his soup”.

Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time
February 17, 2019
The words of the Psalmist echo the theme of all of today's readings. "Happy are they who hope in the Lord" As good stewards, firmly grounded in that hope, may we bear fruit in due season--assisting the poor, feeding the hungry, and consoling the sorrowful whenever we have the chance.
Readings for next weekend will be
I Samuel 26:2, 7-9, 12-13, 22-23 I Corinthians 15:45-49 Luke 6:27-38
We invite you to read and study these passages for your own reflection as we prepare for the liturgy we will celebrate as a parish community.
