    Dynamic Catholic, Alive! Humility

    While Jesus was experiencing crucifixion, suffering the death of one who was a criminal, people reviled Him saying, “You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself, if you are the Son of God, [and] come down from the cross!” St. Thomas Aquinas once wrote that the cross exempli- fies every virtue. Humility was certainly among those virtues. Just as Jesus experienced a most humble birth in a manger sur- rounded by animals, He also suffered a most humble death. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords is judged by a governor and suffers the death of a criminal. He could have come down from the cross and freed Himself of the pain. Instead, He humbled Himself and died for you, for me, for all people. One of the best responses we can have as we gaze upon the Crucified One is silence and contemplation. We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You, because, by Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world.

    Stewardship Awareness “As they were marching out, they came upon a man of Cyrene, Simon by name; this man they pressed into service to carry His cross.” Matthew 27:32 The Lord calls us to love God and to love our neighbor. Every day we are presented with opportunities to love our neighbor and help him “carry his cross”. These opportunities aren’t usually big events, they are usually ordinary occurrences like helping someone carry their gro- ceries or holding the door open for them. The key is putting the other person’s needs before our own and not expecting anything in return.


    By Michael Horn, Archdiocesan Evangelization Coordinator

    How do we know when we are true Christians? When we have joy even though are circumstances are not what we would like. People in terrible situations and work places have Chris- tian joy because they know the goodness of God and hope in His salvation. Joy can only come from having an intimate relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. Pope Francis provided us with a beautiful apostolic exhortation The Joy of the Gospel to remind us how invaluable joy is in our evangelization ef- forts. Joy is a fruit of gratitude, stemming from a keen aware- ness of the Lord working in our life. Do you want to evangel- ize? Encounter the Lord in the sacraments, in prayer, in your brothers and sisters, in your spouse, in your friends, and in the beauty of creation. Then, being imbued with the presence of God, give Him thanks. This thanksgiving will transform into joy that will attract others to Christ and His Church.

    Diaconate Diaper Drive The Permanent Deacons in the Archdiocese of St. Louis, in conjunction with the Respect Life office, are collect- ing diapers through April 16 for infants, toddlers and adults. Donations of diapers should be brought to church and placed in the vestibule. All diapers collected will be donated to assist families in our local community through Birthright in Wentz- ville
