Dear Parish Leaders:

Every fall The Messenger celebrates Priesthood Sunday and our diocesan priests with a special PRIEST APPRECIATION ISSUE. This year Priesthood Sunday falls on September 1, 2022. Our priests’ pastoral ministries affect people’s spiritual and personal lives in many ways, often at significant times: the baptism of children or adults; first Eucharist, confirmation, young couples preparing to be married in the church; visitations to a parishioner in the hospital or nursing home, receiving the anointing of the sick, a family funeral liturgy. These are all emotional times that can be made more meaningful or less difficult when a priest walks alongside a family or individual. To celebrate the ministry of priests in our diocese, The Messenger invites parishioners to comment on how priests’ pastoral ministries affect their spiritual and personal lives or the parish community. Please send brief comments to: Deadline is 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, August 9. Please note: The comments are free and separate from the Priest Appreciation paid advertisements. For Priest Appreciation paid advertisements contact Bernadette at The Messenger at 618-722-5047 or by email at

Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time – July 24

Genesis 18:20-32 ~ Psalm 138:1-2, 2-3, 6-7, 7-8 ~ Colossians 2:12-14 ~ Luke 11:1-13

About Praying: Abraham is persistent in his pleading with the Lord. And the Lord listens and relents. A disciple asks Jesus, after seeing him pray, how to pray. Jesus gives a form that we use at every Mass and that we hand on to the elect each Lent. He then goes on about persistence in our praying.

† How does my prayer plead for the Kingdom of God to come?

† How does my prayer ask for what I need to do God’s mercy work?

† How does my prayer seek and offer forgiveness?


“Married love differs from any other love in the world. By its nature, the love of husband and wife is so complete, so ordered to a lifetime of communion with God and each other, that it is open to creating a new human being they will love and care for together. That power to create a new life with God is at the heart of what spouses share with each other.”

United States Conference of Catholic Bishops “Married Love and the Gift of Life”


Sunday, July 24 from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Dinner includes fried chicken, Mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, coleslaw, hot roll, drink and dessert - $10 a plate.

Most of us are not born with the gift of joy. Already written on our hearts, but that doesn't mean it is out of reach. When we spend time in the presence of Jesus, we experience his gracious and amazing love. It swells our hearts and souls. We feel gratitude for this love, and this gratitude leads to joy, because we learn that while feel like we can't control our little section of the world, all will be ok. We learn to let go of things that don't matter and focus on things that matter: our internal beauty and value and the hope of eternal life with Christ. Joy is a gift given to us because of God's great love and our time in adoration of Blessed Sacrament, prepares out hearts to accept it. Be joyful and be spread this joy with others. Have a blessed week, Fr. Slawomir Ptak.
