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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com.

OFFICE OF WORSHIP BULLETIN SHORTS FOR SUNDAY PRAYER-SHAPING LIFE AND BELIEF
Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time – July 31
Ecclesiastes 1:2; 2:21-23 ~ Psalm 90:3-4, 5-6, 12-13 ~ Colossians 3:1-5, 9-11 ~ Luke 12:13-21
About Greed: Family quarrels, regrettably, are often about inheritance, about possessions. That should be mine, we may say. I do not have enough, we may say. Jesus tells a story about how we are stewards only, and not owners of what we use; about how possessions can possess.
† How much is enough?
† What do I have that I can give away?
† With mercy works in mind, what will I do?
RESPECT LIFE CORNER
“A woman with an unexpected pregnancy may have any number of fears and challenges: facing judgment from her friends and family, losing her job or housing, or being abandoned by the father of her child. Following Mary’s example, we can ask ourselves how to better know these mothers, listen to them, seek understanding, and help them obtain the necessities of life for themselves and their children”
USCCB Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities “Called to Serve Moms in Ned”
As we live our lives and are occupied with daily things, we the have tendency to not see that we are truly blessed. It can be a good job, wonderful family, awesome friends, great health, and many more. All we need to remember is all of that comes from God's hands and provides for us some happiness. St. Gianna Molla said, "The secret of happiness is to live moment by moment and to thank God for all that He, in His goodness, sends to us day after day." Have a blessed week and take some rest, as I will be resting on vacation for next two weeks.
Fr. Slawomir Ptak
