Everyone Is Irish On March 17! Born in Great Britain, Patrick was the son of a Roman official. When he was 16, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and sold into slavery in Ireland. In time, Patrick escaped and spent a number of years in France, where he studied for the priesthood and eventually became a bishop. In 432, he returned to Ireland as a missionary, “I came to the Irish people to preach the Gospel and endure the taunts of unbelievers, putting up with reproaches about my earthly pilgrimage, suffering persecutions, even bondage, and losing my birthright of freedom for the benefit of others.” Making himself one with the people and learning their language and customs, Patrick’s efforts to evangelize Ireland were wonderfully successful!  St. Patrick, pray for us.


Joseph, you were a man
who carried into dark
of anxious sleep
the hunting mystery
of deep, unsettled doubt.

But yet, with in, and all untouched
your citadel of trust
was calm, serene, and still
and flamed your unstarred night
into the answering of dawn
in God’s unchanging will.

O carpenter of faith, 
build our inwardness 
into a city lamped with trust;
and when we, too,
must face the nights
and tread the desert’s way, 
let us, like you, 
take Mother and Child 
into the Egypt of each day.
(Carmel of Terre Haute)

“The Light Is On For You” is an initiative undertaken by the Diocese of Owensboro so that you may take advantage of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. From 6:30-8:00PM every Wednesday night during the season of Lent, you will find most priests in church available for confession. Either Fr. Suneesh or myself will be in St. Stephen Cathedral as a confessor on Wednesdays.

Seven Deadly Sins/Seven Lively Virtues: Because of the winter snow storm/sleet and the Rite of Election the last two Sunday evenings, we have been unable to complete the course on Seven Deadly Sins and Seven Lively Virtues based on the DVD by Fr. Robert Barron. On Sunday, March 16, at 6:00PM in the Undercroft, we will review the video on LUST and its counter virtue of CHASTITY. Shall we have a potluck? Bring a dish!

In Joy and Hope,
Fr. Jerry
