    Habemus Papam

    On Wednesday March 13th

    2013 Jorge Mario Bergoglio the

    Archbishop of Buenos Aires,

    Argentina was elected by the

    college of Cardinals to be our

    next pope and assumed the

    name Francis.

    As Archbishop he turned down

    the opportunity to live in the

    palatial residence, opting for a

    spartan apartment. He cooks his

    own meals, takes the bus and

    does all of this operating on

    only one lung.

    Pope Francis is a member of the

    Society of Jesus, a Jesuit.

    THE EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS

    A presentation was made on February

    6th by Noreen Hishon on the Eucha-

    ristic Congress held in Dublin Ireland

    in June 2012.

    K-W Serrans in attendance at the

    Congress were, Lou and Carole Reit-

    zel, Darlene Lustic as well as Noreen

    and Lee Hishon.

    Noreen’s presentation gave an overall

    picture of the event with highlights of

    the workshops held.

    One notable workshop on Eucharist

    was presented by Fr. Dan Crosby Capu-

    chin who spoke of Becoming the

    Eucharist. We need to understand what

    this means:

    Jesus took Bread,

    Jesus blessed it,

    Jesus broke it,

    Jesus gave it,

    He wants us to reach out to others peo-

    ple as He reaches out to us. Noreen was

    assisted in her presentation with a

    PowerPoint visual composed by Lee

    Fr. Frank Freitas is author of Are We There

    Yet? the latest book published by Catholic

    Register Books. It’s a practical guide that

    Freitas says demonstrates that despite the

    answer we seek not being as clear as we

    hope, finding our purpose is attainable if we

    are really willing to reach out for it. With

    the desire to help Catholics find their pur-

    pose, Fr. Freitas has brought together a col-

    lection of reflections on his life, Scripture

    and the history of the Church

    Fr. Toby Collins, C.R. Vocation Director for the Congregation of the Resurrection and also

    our club Chaplain was our speaker at the March 20th meeting.

    He explained the difference between a priest serving in an order or community like the

    Resurrectionists and the diocesan clergy. Since he is an order priest the emphasis was on

    the Resurrectionists. Order priests live in community unlike the diocesan priests who often

    live alone in the rectory. Order priests answer to the Spiritual Leader formerly known as

    the Superior. Diocesan men answer to the Bishop.

    The Resurrectionists are serving in seventeen countries around the world. Fr Toby has be-

    come involved in developing videos of vocation stories and vocation events for presenta-

    tions to young and old in the promotion of vocations. Former club Chaplain Fr. Wojciech

    Kuzma who planned to join with Fr. Toby was unable to attend.
