Easter IV

April 20, 2008 – Easter IV
Today is the Fourth Sunday after Easter. The Triduum to Our Lady of Consolation concludes after all Masses. The Blessing of Expectant Mothers is available at the communion rail after Mass. Early Vespers and Benediction are at 1:10 PM.

† Alberta Courter
A dear parishioner of our church, Alberta Courter, died last Tuesday after a four month illness. Alberta and her dear husband Andy were “original parishioners” from the early ‘80’s, and Alberta headed our Sunday Catechism program for many years. Recently the Courters had wintered in Florida, but we still saw them every summer. May she rest in peace. This is the funeral schedule for tomorrow, Monday, April 21st.:
9:30 AM Viewing in Helfta Hall.
11:00 AM Rosary and Requiem Mass, followed by refreshments in Helfta Hall. (It would be nice for some of our faithful to help set things up, and perhaps bring some food.) The burial follows in Springfield, Ohio.

New Website Launched!
Dr. Thomas Droleskey has launched his new video website, Christ or Chaos Store, on which will be featured the “Living in the Shadow of the Cross” lecture program, which is a comprehensive overview of the Faith, starting with an examination of the nature of truth and continuing on to discuss man’s creation by God and man’s subsequent fall from grace, which leads into and entire review of salvation history, up to and including our present time. Also included on the new website are two lectures that elaborate on the contrast between Catholicism and coniliarism that he addressed on March 2, 2008, here at St. Gertrude the Great Church. Occasional commentaries on current events will also be offered on the new website. For information about this new site, which exists to promote the immutable doctrine of the Social Reign of Christ the King that has been under attack by Protestants and Freemasons since the dawning of the age of Modernity in the sixteenth century, and has been rejected by the Modernists or the counterfeit church of conciliarism, please go to www.Christorchaos.com, Dr. Droleskey’s regular website of extensive written commentaries on the Faith and on the errors of the day.
