  • Dynamic Catholic, Alive! Self-Denial & Sacrifice

    One of the most beneficial sources of inspiration in our Catho- lic faith is the lives of the saints. The saints, like Christ, offer us a vast number of ways in which we can deny ourselves, take up our cross, and follow the Lord. The penances that saints have taken on through the centuries are excellent models for us and give us ideas for denying ourselves and thus surrendering our lives to Christ. Extra prayer, fasting, sleeping on the ground, waking up in the middle of the night to pray, abstaining from alcohol, etc. are just a few of the many actions we can take to grow closer to Christ. What is essential to remember is that these practices must not become a source of pride for us. We must focus on how the actions draw us closer to Christ and al- low us to participate in His divine life. We must remember that God must be the source and goal of all of our thoughts, words, and actions. He is worth the sacrifices that we make.

    Archbishop Carlson has asked all the parishes within the Archdiocese of St. Louis to have a

    second collection for all those who have been impacted by Hur- ricane Harvey. The weekend of September 9 & 10 we will have that second collection at all our weekend Masses. Funds raised will go directly to Catholic relief efforts via Catholic Charities of St. Louis. If you would like to assist in these ef- forts, please make your check payable to St. Joseph Church and note “Hurricane Harvey 2017” on the memo line. We will forward the funds to Catholic Charities of St. Louis. Donations can also be made through Catholic Charities website at and select the Hurricane Harvey 2017 fund. I want to thank all of you who remembered me with produce from your gardens this summer. There is nothing like vegetables from the garden. I really enjoyed it. We are still getting in bills from the Picnic. We will get to you the total amount made as soon as we can. Let us pray for each other this week. Father Bob Samson

    Stewardship Awareness “What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life?” Matthew 16:26 St. Francis of Assisi once said, “Remember, you are what you are in the eyes of God, and nothing else.” We often forget this stewardship wisdom when we spend all of our time, talent and treasure to gain more of the world’s riches. We need to set our priorities based on God’s values and not the values of the material world.
