A WORD FROM OUR PASTOR
Happy Feast of the Holy Trinity: This Sunday the whole Church celebrates the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity. The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is a basic doctrine of Faith in Christianity, understandable not with our heads but with our hearts. It teaches us that there are three distinct Persons in one God, sharing the same Divine Nature. Our minds cannot grasp this doctrine which teaches that 1+1+1 = 1 and not 3. But our faith helps us to understand this doctrine. Every time we make the sign of the cross we profess that I believe in the trinity. We touch our head and we say, “In the name of the Father.” Because he is the first person of the Trinity and our Creator. Then we touch our hearts and we say, “and of the Son.” This reminds us that God the Son proceeds from the Father and came down from heaven to the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Then we touch our shoulders, moving from left to right as we say, “and of the Holy Spirit.” We do this because God the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son; and in his love, the Spirit fills us, body and soul, with the life of God. Wish you all a happy Feast of the Most HolyTtrinity- This was St. Francis Xavier’s favorite prayer : “Most Holy Trinity, Who lives in me, I praise You, I worship You, I adore You and I love You.” Let the Son lead us to the Father through the Spirit, to live with the Triune God forever and ever. Amen.
St Aloysius Gonzaga: St. Aloysius was born in Castiglione, Italy. He was destined for the military by his father (who was in service to Philip II), but by the age of 9 Aloysius had decided on a religious life. A kidney disease prevented St. Aloysius from a full social life for a while, so he spent his time in prayer and reading the lives of the saints. When he was 18, he joined the Jesuits, after finally breaking down his father, who had refused his entrance into the order. He served in a hospital during the plague of 1587 in Milan, and died from it at the age of 23. I am a twisted piece of iron, and have entered religious in order to get straightened out - words that expressed his humility. Yet, his motto was: I was born for greater things. He was canonized in 1726 and was declared special protector and patron of youth. As the church honors the Feast of St Aloysius on the 21st of June let us seek his intercession especially for all our youth that they may continue to grow in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Vacation Bible School: Our Vacation Bible School for this year will start on Monday, June 24th to Friday, June 28th. The kids will gather at 8. 30 am in the Parish Hall for breakfast and the Vacation Bible School will be until 11. 30 am. Lunch will be served at 11:30am. It will be a great time for the kids to come together and learn about Jesus. The topic will be the different parables of Jesus. Please let Sr. Rosanne know via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by a phone call (270-684-6888) if your kids will be attending Vacation Bible School.
The Image of God: A kindergarten teacher was observing the children in her classroom while they drew pictures. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's artwork. As she came to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl replied, "I'm drawing God." The teacher paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks like." Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing the girl replied, "They will in a minute."

SOLEMNITY OF THE MOST HOLY TRINITY
June 16, 2019
Today’s Psalm reminds us that we have been crowned with glory and honor and given rule over the works of God’s hands. But we must be good stewards, for the Lord will surely hold us accountable for the use of those gifts!
DIOCESAN PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS
God our Father, we thank you for calling men and women from the Diocese of Owensboro to serve in your Son's kingdom as priests, deacons and religious. We pray that you continue to inspire young men and women to respond courageously to your call and give themselves generously to the Church in service of the Gospel. Pour out your Holy Spirit upon our parishes, schools, and families and assist us in building a culture of vocations in which many will hear your call to serve your people. Help us to remain faithful to the call of the Gospel as we support and encourage vocations of sacrificial love in our youth. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us!
Readings for next weekend will be
Genesis 14:18-20 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 Luke 9:11b-17
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.
