                                                       PASTOR’S CORNER

                                                              Rev. Eliseus Ibeh

         Although the dogma of the Assumption is a relatively new one made by the church

1 of 6                                                                                                                            8/13/2010 4:44 PM

         through Pope Pius XXII in 1950; but the belief in the Assumption is one of the oldest in the
         church regarding Mary.
          In the second reading for the Vigil Mass, St. Paul states that death is swallowed up by the
         victory of Christ. Physical death is now seen as a transformation from one manner of living
         to another. The second reading for the feast itself states that since the first man became
         the instrument of death, by rejecting God, the new man became the instrument of life
         through His obedience. We now understand the Assumption of Mary in the light of this
         reading. Her death was a transformation from this life to heaven. This is because she is a
         model Christian who heard the word of God and kept it. Since Mary, our Mother is now in
         heaven, we have an intercessor before the throne of Grace. We now ask her to plead for us
         who are still in this valley of tears that after thus our earthly journey we may enjoy the face
         of her blessed son; our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

         for everyone, especially the children. And remember, we have the cow bell that we ring to
         help bring in the players and win the many, many items, like baskets of food, grapevine
         wreaths, hand rolled from a tree from a local ranch. We will need lots of greenery, pine
         cones, ribbons, preserves, jams and jellies. Crochet and handmade crafts are nice, books
         for the children, pastas and any non perishable goods for our baskets. We also need you to
         consider helping us, can't craft, we'll show you, maybe you can tie a bow, group things
         together, don't worry, we'll find something for you. Right now, we will only work on
         Tuesdays, from 9:30 a.m. until noon or so, later, when we have more items, we can work two
         or three times a week. For more information and to VOLUNTEER, please call Barbara

         pledges. Of that amount, we have collected more than $48 million to date. Currently, 56

         redemption, in August the diocesan Stewardship and Development Office will begin
         sending monthly reminders to those families who have not made a recent payment on their
         pledge.. Thank you for your continued commitment to the Our Faith~Our Legacy campaign.
