MAY IS MARY’S MONTH - All Catholics are encouraged to offer fervent and loving homage to
our Blessed Mother with prayers and veneration. Please pray the rosary.

61TH INTERNATIONAL ROSARY MARCH - We welcome all who will be participating in the
Rosary March today following the noon Mass. We shall process through town to Saint Mary of
Mercy Church on Stanwix Street for a Holy Hour with Benediction from 2 to 3 p.m. Refreshments
will be served afterward in Lawless Hall. Plan on joining us for this wonderful experience. For
those who cannot march, the rosary will be prayed at St. Mary’s at 1:15 p.m. This is a great way
to start your month of May as we honor Jesus and Mary.
MAY CROWNING - Our May Crowning to honor the Blessed Mother will be on Sunday, May 13,
at the 10 a.m. Mass. Our May Queen is Jean Chiappetta. This year, plan on attending this
special Mass.

served in the church hall. All are welcome to attend.

would like to be a part of our May Crowning procession at the 10 a.m. Mass on Sunday, May 13,
please contact Father Dan at 412-471-0257, extension 15.
MONTHLY REMEMBRANCE - The altar wine and hosts that are being consecrated at the
Masses throughout the month of May have been donated in loving memory of Anthony and
Carmella Rossi. If you would like to make a donation in memory of a loved one(s) to offset the
cost of the altar bread and wine, please call the parish office. The priest will pray for your loved
one(s) at each Mass as the bread and wine are offered up, and a note will be placed in the
bulletin each week. The donation for a month is $100.
THE SANCTUARY LAMP burns continuously signifying the presence of the Lord in the
Tabernacle. A 14-day candle is now burning in loving memory of the Bill, Bona and Forlini
Families for the two weeks of April 29 and May 6.
BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE is on the stand in front of the Blessed Mother’s altar. Please write in
the book the names of your loved ones who have passed away. We will pray at all the Masses
for them. You may wish to light a large candle in their memory. Suggested donation is $2.

                                  COMMAND OF LOVE
 I give you a new commandment, said Jesus: Love one another. But how, we might ask, could
He call this commandment new?
 Through Moses, He had said to the people of old: You shall love the Lord your God with all your
heart and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.
 Notice what follows. He was not content simply to say, I give you a new commandment: love
one another.
  He showed the novelty of His command and how far the love He enjoined surpassed the old
conception of mutual love by going on immediately to add: Love one another as I have loved
you.
  To understand the full force of these words, we have to consider how Christ loved us. Then it
will be easy to see what is new and different in the commandment we are now given.
  Paul tells us that although His nature was divine, He did not cling to His equality with God, but
stripped Himself of all privilege to assume the condition of a slave. He became as we are, and
appearing in human form humbled Himself by being obedient even to the extent of dying, dying
on a cross. And elsewhere Paul writes: Though He was rich, He became poor.
  Do you not see what is new in Christ's love for us? The law commanded people to love their
brothers and sisters as they love themselves, but our Lord Jesus Christ loved us more than
Himself.
  He who was one in nature with God the Father and His equal would not have descended to our
lowly state, nor endured in His flesh such a bitter death for us, nor submitted to the blows given
Him by His enemies, to the shame, the derision, and all the other sufferings that could not
possibly be enumerated; nor, being rich, would He have become poor, had He not loved us far
more than Himself.
  It was indeed something new for love to go as far as that!
  Christ commands us to love as He did, putting neither reputation, nor wealth, nor anything
whatever before love of our brothers and sisters. If need be we must even be prepared to face
death for our neighbor's salvation as did our Savior's blessed disciples and those who followed in
their footsteps.
  To them the salvation of others mattered more than their own lives, and they were ready to do
anything or to suffer anything to save souls that were perishing. I die daily, said Paul. Who suffers
weakness without my suffering too? Who is made to stumble without my heart blazing with
indignation?
  The Savior urged us to practice this love that transcends the law as the foundation of true
devotion to God. He knew that only in this way could we become pleasing in God's eyes, and
that it was by seeking the beauty of the love implanted in us by Himself that we should attain the
highest blessings.
      Saint Cyril of Alexandria, Bishop and Doctor of the Church

APPALACHIA WORK CAMP PROGRAM COLLECTION Our second collection on the weekend
of May 12 and 13 will be for our Appalachia Work Camp Program. This year we are planning to
build three homes, put on four additions to trailers and perform at least a dozen repair jobs for
needy families in Kentucky. Ten people from Epiphany will be participating this year. We can do
this only with your help. Please be generous in your support of this worthy cause.

WE NEED YOUR HELP - We need to purchase 100 chairs for the church hall. A few of the
chairs are damaged, but the main reason is we need to get our chair count up to 350. The cost of
one chair is $38. If you would like to “buy a chair,” or even a few, please mark your check or
envelope “Chair.” Thank you for all your support.

SPAGHETTI DINNER - As is our custom on weekday holy days, we shall be serving our
spaghetti dinner on Ascension Thursday, May 17, from 11:00 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. in the
church hall. The dinner includes spaghetti, meatballs, salad and a roll for $6.00. Eat in or take
out. For take-outs call 412-471-1008.

FRIDAY FISH FRY - From 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Our special this Friday will be roast beef,
mashed potato and vegetable for only $5.00. Call 412-471-1008 for take-outs.

DIOCESAN HOLY HOUR FOR PRIESTLY VOCATIONS is set for Thursday, May 10, 2007, at
Saint Paul Seminary in Crafton. The Road to the Priesthood event concludes with this special
Holy Hour at 7:00 p.m. with faithful from parishes and organizations around the diocese who
gather in prayer for vocations. Following our praise and worship of the Lord, an outdoor reception
will be hosted by the seminarians. Youth groups are especially encouraged to consider attending
the event.

CATHOLIC CHARITIES WISDOM, AGE AND GRACE: A CELEBRATION OF LATER LIFE
CONFERENCE - “Life in Abundance” is the theme of the 14th annual conference to be held on

Conboy, S.T.L., Ph.D. will deliver the keynote address, “Life in Abundance: There’s Enough for
