    TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION From its earliest days, the Church has had an interest in the education of young people. In ancient Rome, teachers of boys had to resign their posts in order to become catechumens, since the education of boys was so keyed to the lore and worship of the gods. In other ages, public education has been so attuned to other values that creative solutions have arisen. In late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Ireland, government schools had a goal of “Anglicizing” the Irish in culture and religion. Most Irish Catholics opted out in favor of “hedge schools.” In these largely secret schools, meeting not just in the shadow of hedges but also in cottages and barns throughout Ireland, schoolmasters provided eager students with a classical education grounded in Greek and Latin, Irish literature, the banned Gaelic language, and the catechism of the Church. The so-called penal laws forbade Catholics from teaching young people publicly or privately, and “civil disobedience” ruled the day. In 1826, a British government study showed that of half a million Irish children enrolled in schools, 403,000 were in hedge schools! A woman named Nano Nagle defied the law by opening schools for the poor. Eventually her companions became the Presentation Sisters. A layman named Edmund Rice, inspired by her courage, founded the Irish Christian Brothers for the same purpose. By 1820, the situation eased, since Irish Catholics had shown that they would defy any law that diminished their love of learning and threatened their faith. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S.

    Sunday: Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time Monday: St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus Tuesday: The Holy Guardian Angels Thursday: St. Francis of Assisi Friday: Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos; First Friday Saturday: St. Bruno; Blessed Marie-Rose Durocher; First Saturday; Blessed Virgin Mary

    .NOT AGAINST US Like Moses before him, Jesus corrects his disciples’ misunderstanding of the gift of the Spirit. They saw people who were not of their company casting out demons and doing other works such as Jesus had done. Jesus points out that no one who does a good deed in his name can be opposed to him at the same time. He goes on to point out the importance of the “little ones,”: the poor, simple people, children, the meek ones who are not important in the world. It is to them that he was sent, not to the wealthy and the self-righteous. He underscores the importance of small works done in faith, as well as big works like driving out demons. “Anyone who gives you a cup of water . . . because you belong to Christ . . . will surely not lose his reward” (Mark 9:41). God builds the coming reign little by little in our actions, however small and unassuming, when they are done out of love of God and neighbor. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

    "What wonderful majesty! What stupendous condescension! O sublime humility! That the Lord of the whole universe, God and the Son of God, should humble Himself like this under the form of a little bread, for our salvation"

    "...In this world I cannot see the Most High Son of God with my own eyes, except for His Most Holy Body and Blood."

    - St. Francis of Assisi

    You are invited to join Catholics nationwide in celebrating Respect Life Month this October The 2018 theme for Respect Life month is "Every Life: Cherished, Chosen, Sent"! Learn more at www.usccb.org/respectlife.

  • The St Francis Kindergarten class talked about the importance of names, and how Jesus' name is holy. Just as we like it when people say our names with love, God also wants us to show our love for him by the way we speak God's name. The children prayed the Jesus Prayer, and practiced genuflecting as a way to show reverence to God.

    Help Children Understand and Participate in the Mass: My Picture Missal App was developed for children with special needs and for young children. It is a is a simple, interactive app that leads the child through the Order of Mass, including the words to the following prayers: Sign of the Cross, Apostles’ Creed, Nicene Creed, and the Lord’s Prayer. With a choice of English or Spanish, each part of the Mass is displayed as a colorful icon and a word or short phrase. When used at Mass, it's a great tool to help children follow along step-by-step and join in appropriately and reverently.

    St. Mary had a visit from Kelly High School Monsignor Kelly High School students partnered with St. Mary Catholic School as part of their community service. The high schoolers assisted with morning duty, unloading students and greeting parents.

    Pictured are Tristan Balthazar (left) with Cameron, who had unloaded him.
