Saint Francis de Sales
From the Pastor's Desk

Are you stuck at home? No time to get away? Think you’re too old for summertime fun? Well, you don’t have to be. This week, why not try to keep the heart of a child? You, too, can be a part of our Vacation Bible School/Mission Camp this week by joining in with the theme of rejoicing and gladness through the Beatitudes via “Take A Roadtrip to Holiness.” Each day this week, our younger brothers and sisters in Christ will gather to strengthen their Catholic identity and love of the faith through a central image or saint to lead them. So why not go along for the roadtrip even if it’s at home:

     Monday we will teach the children how to use their excitement for fun and play so their soul can magnify the Lord like Mother Mary. Since Monday is the feast of Our Lady Of Mount Carmel, it is time to make sure your brown scapular is unknotted and prayers ready to be offered with Our Lady to Her Son. For a better background on this devotion, check out this website from Word on Fire (5-things-to-know-about-our-lady-of-mt-carmel-and-the-brown-scapular). St. Philip Neri will be with you and the kids to help share a faith based on laughter and love: “First let a little love find entrance into your hearts, and the rest will follow.”

     Tuesday Fr. Bearer will show the children how to “be bold” in their faith and how to keep in constant prayer—imagine him being bold (good luck calming them down when you get them home)! 

    Wednesday Deacon Butz will be taking the wheel for the roadtrip with St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (formerly Edith Stein-read something from her!) so we can learn how to love via the Beatitudes within the context of a shared community of faith.

     Thursday Deacon Herrick will try to stay on the road by taking a side trip with St. John of the Cross’ Carmelite heart that beats with Jesus’ living flame of love so we can know how to patiently persevere. (by the way, if you haven’t prayed daily for our seminarian Alexander Clark and his parents, today would be a great day to do it)

     Friday Fr. Pfeiffer is driving on for the final day, as he shows us the way to follow with St. Francis de Sales to living a devout life. We will be concluding the roadtrip to holiness with the celebration of the Sacrifice of the Mass at 11:45 a.m.—why not be a part of the ultimate destination! Get your car packed...Pax, Fr. Bline
