Dear Parishioners,

            Please join me in congratulating Archbishop-elect Thompson and thanking him for 5+ years of wonderful pastoral and spiritual leadership. Also, please join me in responding to his request for our prayers as this next chapter of God's plan for him unfolds. I am thrilled for Archbishop-elect Thompson and the good people of Indianapolis but saddened by the loss of such a wonderful spiritual leader. Let’s all offer our prayers and best wishes as the next chapter of God’s plan for bishop Thompson unfolds. We definitely will miss him, but take comfort that he is only moving a few hours up the road.  Bishop Thompson will serve as Apostolic Administrator of Evansville until his installation in Indianapolis on July 28. After that a group of Evansville diocesan priests known as consultors (Fr. Bernie Etienne, Fr. Ken Walker, Fr. Tony Ernst, Fr. Dave Fleck, Fr. Phil Kreilein, Fr. Mike Madden, Fr. Alex Zenthoefer) will gather the week following his installation to elect a priest to serve as Administrator of Evansville until the Vatican names the sixth bishop of Evansville.  I am thinking many months or a year, not days or weeks until someone is names bishop.  There are many large Dioceses that do not have a Bishop right now.

                        We welcome the St. Vincent de Paul conferences to our 8:00 Mass.  Following they will have a breakfast and their quarterly meeting.  Welcome to Resurrection.

                        Here is a reflection on the 13th Sunday of the year. So many of us go through life afraid of living, worried we aren’t good enough to please God, or that we have messed things up too much to recover. The second reading reminds us that eternal life is a gift, freely given, and all we need to do is receive the gift of freedom Jesus offers us in grace. The Gospel affirms that we are free to receive the gift, and with that freedom also comes the freedom to reject it. Though sin, evil, and darkness exist in the world because of freedom, no darkness can overcome the light of God, who will expose all darkness to light in His time. The possibility of hell and condemnation exists not because God desires to punish us, but rather because God so completely respects our freedom to choose death if we do not want the life He offers. Do not be afraid to choose life, to set down your sinfulness, and to let Him exchange it for peace, for joy, for love – and for true life in this world and the one to come.

            Since we are talking about the Bishop leaving, here is an amusing item about a bishop, At a Mass at which some young ladies were to take their finals vows to become nuns, the Bishop presiding noticed two Rabbis enter the church just before the service began. They insisted on sitting on the right side of the center aisle. The Bishop wondered why they had come, but he didn't have time to inquire before the Mass began.  When it came time for the announcements, the Bishop's curiosity got the better of him. He welcomed the two Rabbis and asked why they had chosen to be present at this occasion where the young ladies were to become the "Brides of Christ". The elder of the Rabbis slowly rose to his feet and explained, "Family of the Groom."

            God Bless you this Week,   Fr. Phil Kreilein


JUSTFAITH: DEVELOPING A PASSION FOR THE SOCIAL MINISTRY OF THE CHURCH Looking for a way to deepen your understanding of the Gospel call to love and serve your neighbors?.  JustFaith is a parish faith formation program for faithful Christians looking to deepen their commitment to care for vulnerable people and our planet. In the words of its founder, Jack Jezreel, “JustFaith Ministries was birthed in the effort to invite and prepare people of faith for the life-changing and world-changing call of the Gospel to help heal the world and, in so doing, experience a deeper faith, a more fulfilling life, and a community of care and vitality.” Matthew 25 calls us to wrestle with the words of Jesus that “Whatever you do the least of these, you do to me.”  JustFaith began in the 1990s at a parish in Louisville, KY. Over 50,000 people have now participated in over 1500 parishes across the United States. JustFaith is an invitation to parishioners to come together in a small group (10-12 people) to study, over the course of 9 months, the Gospel message, to pray together, to form community, and to act with compassion toward our brothers and sisters, especially to those who are “least among us.”   St. Joe Parish is sponsoring JUSTFAITH which will have it’s first meeting on Aug. 30. The program will run from Aug. 30 to around the first of May, 2018. If you would like more information about JustFaith, call Tom Wannemuehler, a St. Joe parishioner, who is co-facilitating the program. You may reach Tom at 919-607-6888 or wannemuehl@aol.com.
