    World Youth Day/Priesthood Sunday The coming weeks ahead are going to be filled once more with busy-ness and insanity around these parts. Between Halloween, All Saints Day, All Souls Day, the Parish Mission, the Presidential Election, Taste of OToole, St. Lawrence OTooles feast day, the Craft Show, Thanksgiving, AND more, November tends to be one of the busiest months of the year. Yet its also a time when we are asked to keep remembering those who have died this past year, and it always seems like that list gets longer and longer each year. On more positive notes, this last weekend in October is always a dual celebration of World Youth Day and Priesthood Sunday. Its an interesting combination as we need to continue to pray for more vocations to the priesthood and religious life. We particularly should be praying for more young people to listen to Gods voice. His booming voice truly does speak louder than any other noise we hear, yet the worldly noise around us seems to distract us from listening to Him. I have had a magazine I received from Marist High School sitting on my desk for the past two weeks or so. The front cover is a collage of pictures of many of the Marist brothers who served at the Chicago campus over 50 years of service. My fun is to try to name as many of them as possible. So indeed I have written their names on the cover over their pictures. I am fully aware that many of them are deceased, and I know there are a few missing from the collage, too. I must admit that I had some very good teachers when I was at Marist. Many of the brothers that I remember were not even my teachers in class, but I know that there were more than a few who made a great impression on my life and my faith. Sure, I came to listen to Gods voice leading me to be ordained in the footsteps of the Apostles, but the brothers of Marist, following the rule of living from the great St. Marcelin Champgnat, continue to teach young men and women how to live Christian lives and how to use the knowledge God has given them for the advancement of humanity. PRAY. PRAY. PRAY. Ask the master of the harvest to send out more laborers into the vineyard. Peace and rest for all Fr. Michael Novick

    Living Stewardship October 28, 2012 ~~ 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way. (MARK 10:52) Sight is just one of the many gifts that God has given to us. Like all of our basic senses and talents, sight is a gift we often take for granted. We pat ourselves on the back for our accomplishments, forgetting that whatever we do, we do with the gifts that God has given to us.

    The priest says, Lift up your hearts. We say, We lift them up to the Lord. In the Mass, we lift or raise up our hearts to God. We lift up our offering to God. And that offering is the self-sacrificing love of Jesus Christ. We join him and, because we are in him, we can lift ourselves up to God. We are part of the one offering, the one sacrifice. We can and sometimes do stay stuck in our daily struggles, temptations, and even sins. In the

    Mass we break free. In Jesus lifted high on the cross, we lift up our hearts, our very selves. We break free of the gravity of sin and death and doubt.

    If you became blind would you ever think about seeing a priest? Christs priesthood, todays first

    reading and Gospel passage indicate, cures both physical and

    spiritual blindness.

    Think about a time during the Liturgy of the Word when your eyes were opened, providing you with an essential insight

    which you later put into practice. How did this make

    you feel?
