    Vocation Prayer Chalice

    If you are willing to have the Vocation Prayer Chalice in your home for a week, please call the parish office.

    Dynamic Catholic, Alive! Lectio Divina

    The Compendium identifies Sacred Scripture as the ‘fount of the spiritual life” (24). How often do you prayerfully reflect on the Scriptures? Lectio Divina is one way to deepen your spiri- tuality. Lectio Divina is a prayerful reflection on Scripture through reading, meditation, prayer, and contemplation. It is a way of discerning God’s will for your life and deepening your relationship with Him. Was there a word or phrase in today’s readings that stood out for you? What does this word or phrase mean for your life?

    I want to thank all of you, and especially the Picnic Committee, for your hard work in mak-

    ing our Parish Picnic a big success! We were blessed to have beautiful weather throughout the day. A report has been in- serted in this bulletin for you to see the detailed results. I am very happy to inform you that Rose Ritter, the daughter of Norm & Linda Ritter, and the sister of our seminar- ian, Tony Ritter, has entered a religious order. She has written a note to the parish which is printed on the opposite page in this bulletin. It is wonderful to see the fruits of our prayers for reli- gious vocations come forth within our parish. Thank you to Norm & Linda for nurturing religious vocations in your home. Below is an article I read this past week and I wanted to share it with you. Let us pray for each other this week.

    Father Bob Samson Living a Kinder, Happier Life

    We know that being kind may help us get to heaven, but it may also help us live a healthy life here on earth. A recent United Healthcare newsletter states that people who make a habit of spreading kindness experience less pain, depression and stress. Here are some tips they suggest for spreading kindness: • Think small - it doesn’t have to be large or time-

    consuming. Smile, hold the door for someone or let some- one up in line.

    • Get involved - if you want to make “helping” a routine, then you should consider volunteering. Look for opportu- nities that match your talents and interests.

    • Bring it full circle - while being kind to others, be kind to yourself. Avoid negative feelings, gossip and remember no one is perfect.

    Stewardship Awareness “Be doers of the word and not hearers only…” (James 1:22) What do you do to live God’s word? Do you share your time in prayer with God? Do you use your talent to help those in need? Are you generous with your financial resources? If not, what are you waiting for?
