APRIL 15, 2019

Dear Parishioners,

                As we move through the readings of Holy Week, we go back in time and try to experience the events of Jesus’ last week on earth as if we were bystanders.  We exult with Him as He rides triumphantly into Jerusalem in the midst of the cheering crowd.  We see Him sharing a bittersweet Last Supper with his closest friends.  We watch Him sweat during the Agony in the Garden as He faces the grim reality of what lies ahead.  We wince for Him as He endures the humiliation of being stripped of His dignity, taunted and tortured.  We trudge along with Him as He wearily carries His cross through streets He had entered in triumph only days before.  We mourn for Him as He dies in apparent defeat.

                 As we recall these long ago events, we feel like bystanders, but we are not.  We are part of the story and the story is part of us.  At one time or another, we all experience fleeting moments of triumph when we enjoy the respect and admiration of others – moments when our team wins, when our plans succeed, when we are congratulated and honored.  And at one time or another, we will all experience bittersweet last moments with loved ones - a last dance, a last walk, a last conversation, a last meal.  Sooner or later, most of us will go through the agony of having to face a reality that we do not want to face – a bleak diagnosis, the death of a loved one, or other tragic news.  All human beings experience moments of humiliation and some  unluckier ones know what it feels like to be bullied or abused. Most adults know what it feels like to be weighed down with a burden that seems too heavy to bear. And sooner or later, most of us will experience weakness, loss of dignity and loss of control.  Eventually all of us will die. 

                Thinking about the suffering and death that are part of every human life can be depressing, but those of us who have faith in Jesus are comforted by the knowledge that just as we move through Holy Week with Him, He moves through the trials and tribulations of our lives with us.  We are never alone, even in our darkest, ugliest, most shameful hours.  There is no low that we can sink to that is too low for Jesus to go and no personal hell that He cannot raise us from.

                As we move together through this Holy Week, may our hearts and minds be centered on Jesus. May we reach out with compassion to all those we know who are suffering and rejoice together in the Resurrection. --                Parish Staff

GOOD FRIDAY WAY OF THE CROSS

On Good Friday, April 19, 2019 the Catholic movement, Communion and Liberation, will sponsor a Way of the Cross beginning at the Four Freedoms Monument in Downtown Evansville and concluding at St. Mary Catholic Church.  We will begin at 3:30 pm and will reflect on the path that Christ followed for our redemption.  The event should finish around 5:00 pm.  Please join us for this public opportunity for prayer.  If you have questions, please contact Fr. Alex Zenthoefer at azenthoefer@evdio.org.

THE CHRISM MASS WILL BE CELEBRATED ON TUESDAY, APRIL 16, 5:30 PM CDT, AT HOLY REDEEMER CHURCH IN EVANSVILLE (DUE TO ONGOING CATHEDRAL RENOVATIONS). This is the Mass where the holy oils used throughout the year are blessed and consecrated, and the priests of the diocese make a public renewal of their priestly promises to serve Christ and the Church. The Sacrament of Reconciliation will also be available prior to the Mass. All are invited to attend, show your support for the service of our priests, and pray together as a diocese in those holy days leading up to Easter.

REQUEST FROM THE ST. JOSEPH CEMETERY - Please help us get ready for the mowing season by removing the Christmas decorations from the graves of your loved ones. All statues, mementos, balloons, and other items not attached firmly to your gravesite marker must be removed.
