50th ANNIVERSAR BOOK:
As we begin assembling the 50th anniversary book, we want to verify that all families have taken their photos for the book. We know with Covid that some families did not have the opportunity to take their family picture, therefore, we are asking any family/parishioner interested to please contact Fr. Michael as soon as possible to set up an appointment.
Although it is uncertain if the actual celebration can be held, the diocese is still asking for all parishioners to submit their names who will be celebrating their wedding anniversary of 10,25,35,40, 45, 50 or additional years that are a multiple of 5 during 2021. Please notify Fr. Michael or Paula Slemons by July 25. If a celebration does occur, it will be held on September 12, 2021 at St. Elias Church in Pittsburgh. All jubilarians will receive a certificate.
The Sanctuary candles will be lit for the entire week for your intentions. The Left Sanctuary Candle is for +Frances Redoway. The Right Sanctuary Candle is for the Health and Well-Being of Mildred Jonda, both are from Joe and Mary Sinowski.
TWO BLIND MAN
The start of this encounter is in public. There are crowds round Jesus, and the blind men are caught up in the general emotion. They shout at Jesus using a formal title, ‘Son of David,’ as though he was a powerful messianic figure dispensing health to crowds. Jesus waits until he is in the house, where he can meet the blind men in person, and question their faith.
Lord, you do not meet me as one of a multitude, but face to face, on my own, where you can test the truth of my words, free from the illusions of mass emotion.
In matters of faith, we are all blind in some way. But, if I allow Jesus to touch my heart, he will help me see more clearly the path I should follow.
The blind men had faith in Jesus’ power of healing. Do I ever experience the inner healing power of God?
The blind men remind me of the need to be persistent in my prayer. Is what I ask God for now in my mind during the day? Do I look with expectation and hope to see how God is answering me? If I don’t, what might my lack of perseverance say?
I give thanks to God for those times when my eyes have been opened and ask God to lead me to appreciate truth.
