Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – The Lord’s Day
Are your Sundays centered on worship and relaxation of mind and
body? Sunday symbolizes the new creation ushered in by the
Resurrection of Christ. For this reason, the “center of the liturgical
season is Sunday” (Compendium, 241). The faithful are obliged to
participate at Holy Mass every Sunday (and holy day of obligation). This
obligation—although Mass is more than an obligation—is one of the
Precepts of the Church. Do you know a Catholic who is not attending
Mass? It may be a good time to invite him or her back.

There is no greater feeling of liberation than to experience this freedom
from sin and death that you have provided for me through Jesus Christ.
Today my heart and my soul are free to praise you. For this I am very
On this Independence Day I am reminded of all those who have
sacrificed for my freedom, following the example of your Son, Jesus
Christ. Let me not take my freedom, both physical and spiritual, for
granted. May I always remember that my freedom was purchases with a
very high price. My freedom cost others their very lives.
Lord, today, bless those who have served and continue to give their lives
for my freedom. With favor and bounty meet their needs and watch over
Help me to live my life in a way that glorifies you, Lord. Give me the
strength to be a blessing in someone else's life today, and grant me the

Saturday, August 1 is the St. Vincent de Paul School Dinner Auction. As has
happened in the past, THERE WILL BE ONLY ONE MASS THAT DAY AT 4PM AT ST.
VINCENT. This gives an opportunity for workers and those attending the auction to
get to Sunday Mass. Auction doors open at 5pm.
Lots of stuff has bene going on this summer. Thanks to all who have
been offering their time and talents to our parishes:
--the Auction Committee is in full swing and is working incredibly hard for
a fun and successful auction;
--the guys who have been working on the 7th/8th grade classroom at St.
Vincent’s getting ready to pour a new floor
--the folks at IC who have been cleaning and organizing all of our ‘stuff’
on the 3rd floor of the school; the folks that are working on grading and
--as well as all the folks who do the ‘regular weekly’ stuff of money
counting, church laundry, liturgical ministries, and whatever else that
make our parishes who and what they are.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!
As you probably know by now, this morning the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that states
cannot ban same-sex marriage.
The definition of marriage has been changed in the law of the land.
However, regardless of today’s SCOTUS ruling, for us Catholics, the definition of marriage as a
sacramental institution of marriage remains unchanged: The union of man and woman in marriage
is a way of imitating in the flesh the Creator’s generosity and fecundity: ‘Therefore a man leaves his
father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh.’ All human generations
proceed from this union. ‐Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2335
In the coming days, you will, no doubt, find yourself engaged in conversation, heated debates,
question and answer sessions with loved ones, friends, foes… The archdiocese has put together
various tools, images, memes, videos, etc. to help you if you need it and, certainly, to share it in
order to help the rest of our culture better understand that, the Church isn’t against anyone’s right to
the pursuit of happiness; however, She has certain teachings that cannot change to meet the
approval of the culture in which She resides and that these teachings exist in order for all God’s
children to live in happiness and holiness in this life so that we can live with Him in the next.
Attached you will find 6 images which are the “official” look of the archdiocesan “#MarriageIs”
campaign, 5 of which include the reasons why we believe what we believe. Please consider
making these your social media profile pix, sharing them on social media, in emails, et cetera.
Additionally, at www.archstl.org/marriage <http://www.archstl.org/marriage>, you will find all the
archdiocesan resources for what marriage is according to the teachings of the Church. Please take
a look so that you’ll be familiar with these materials if and when you should need them. Also,
please share these materials.
Finally, the St. Louis Review, the official, stalwart publication of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, has up-
to-date and on-going coverage of the marriage issue. Please keep the paper and their online link
www.stlouisreview.com <http://www.stlouisreview.com> close at hand.
Holy Family, pray for us.
