Membership and Registration Information
In last Sunday’s Prayer of the Faithful deceased list, we had 14 names mentioned. They were not all Resurrection parishioners, but I knew most of the people. I was stationed with Sr. Sulpice in my first assignment. She taught me more about priesthood than I learned from any priest or seminary. Msgr. Thomas Baumgartner gave an example of how to be a holy, humble priest. Ann Burke taught me to love the liturgy. Kathy Zetts cleaned my house and offices for 16 years. Jim Saboe would stop by my office once or twice a week and give me a word of encouragement. Jean Plitt was a faithful EM. Andrea Bellamy leaves behind twin, 14 yr. old boys. Dominic Corriere was a good friend and major supporter of Our Daily Bread with both his time and resources. I am sure next week will generate another list. The point I want to make is two-fold. These good and faithful servants have gone home to rest in their God.
Their passing leaves a big void to be filled by us who remain. If you are not involved in some ministry in the Church, Lent is a perfect time to step up to plate and increase your involvement in building the Kingdom of God. Today is the second Sunday of Lent, but it is also St. Patrick’s Day. So, here is wishing everyone, whether Irish or not, (St. Patrick wasn’t Irish either), Happy St. Paddy’s Day. And just a couple of Irish thoughts:
Paddy and Mick are walking down the road. Paddy has a bag of doughnuts in his hand. Paddy says to Mick, “If you can guess how many doughnuts I have in my bag, you can have them both.”
May you have the hindsight to know where you have been, the foresight to know where you are going, and the insight to know when you’ve gone too far.
