                                    Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

    My Dear Friends in Christ,

           I cannot express to you the joy that I feel when I see the mingling of various cul-
    tures and ethnic groups represented in the church. We seem to be a small “snapshot” of
    the universal Church in the gathering of many races and many traditions who come to
    worship together as brothers and sisters in the Lord. Many parishioners have commented
    on the beauty of how well-integrated the church is and has been, and I am certain it is
    pleasing to the Lord as well. I am so thankful for the different ushers and acolytes, lec-
    tors and altar servers who come from various backgrounds and ethnic origin.
           At a recent wedding rehearsal, we were practicing the recessional train with the
    groomsmen and the bridesmaids. At one point, a white gentleman put out his arm to es-
    cort an African-American bridesmaid. It only dawned on me later that twenty years ago
    that would have been unheard of, and forty years ago would have been criminal. We still
    have a long way to go in race relations, and in erasing racism in any form, but it is good
    to see progress even on the smallest level of the parish.
           You will notice that we are trying to incorporate more of our “Lift Every Voice and
    Sing” hymnal, as it is a rich treasure of dignified Gospel music. I hope you will join in
    and sing to the God who hears us in many languages and sees us only in one color: the
    color of love.

     Asking you to pray for the Souls you may meet someday in Purgatory,

     Fr. Tim Donahue

uttered this profound truth with joy and conviction at a rest stop in middle Georgia after losing all his possessions to
Katrina. During these days of “hope and change” we may tend in many ways to be skeptical. “Many, if not most, people
today doubt that there is any truth upon which all individuals can agree…thinking that morals are relative to a culture or
even to an individual.”
       As we try to sort out the barrage of information, plans and promises that mount up each day, it becomes ever more
apparent that we have only One Source of Truth we can depend on: JESUS, who speaks to us through His Church.
       A case in point is the recent endorsement of the entire homosexual agenda by our president at the first “LBGT
Pride Month reception” at the White House where he spoke of “worn arguments and old attitudes.”
       Dealing with a loved one or a friend’s same-sex attraction can be a heartrending challenge. As a Catholic,
how do you respond? Here are some steps for starters from the June 21 issue of Our Sunday Visitor:
        First, Pray: Fall on your knees and pray; Second, Prepare: Educate yourself about the truth of same-sex attrac-
tion; Third, Persevere: Persevere in prayer and in the face of disappointments and discouragement. Fourth, Proclaim:
Proclaim the truth. Don’t just sit by; become proactive. Visit the Courage Community, a website given the Triple Excel-
