Pentecost XII

zelusdomustuaeBishop’s Corner

Thank you for your cooperation for a beautiful weekend for Our Lady’s Assumption and our new priest. It was good to have the Lourdes Grotto properly blessed and dedicated to Our Lady. Make a point to visit it for a little prayer. We hope to do some more landscaping there, and to install some benches.

I was glad to hear that all of the festivities went well, and that many of you stayed and enjoyed the beautiful breakfast which Mark Lotarski and his helpers prepared. Thank you, Mark. Meanwhile things went well for us in Columbus, but there is no air conditioning, and it certainly was hot!

We have had our introductory meeting for the teachers in preparation for the new school year, and are quite pleased to be having two priests on our faculty, in addition to our excellent and devoted lay staff. Fr. Cekada continues as school chaplain, and I look forward to speaking to the children each day at Mass about the saints of the day.

You know that Fr. Cekada’s father died suddenly last Sunday morning. His Requiem High Mass was Thursday in Milwaukee, and his burial Friday in Calumet, Michigan (Upper Peninsula). Frank Cekada had attained the good age of 91 years and leaves a legacy of real fidelity to the Catholic Church and devotion to Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Fr. Cekada reports that his father left the Novus Ordo before he did. Mr. Cekada was a great help to the faithful in starting St. Hugh of Lincoln chapel. May his good soul rest in peace, and his example inspire others to keep up the fight for the Faith, and the love of Our Lady.

Fr. Saavedra and Fr. Siordia will both be visiting us this week. We hope to be able to accommodate our guests in our new house, the Convento San Marco. Thanks to all who are
helping with this project.

Let us finish August with fervor and devotion to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart, and daily ask for a place there for ourselves and loved ones.

God Bless You!
