Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – Christ as Son of Man
Jesus is like us in all things except sin—a true “Son of Man,” as in a “son of
Adam”! The New Adam—Jesus—not only created the first Adam but is also
descended from the first Adam according to His human nature. This great act
of humility, leading to the humiliation of the Cross, ultimately leads to salvation
offered as a gift for the whole human race. If we embrace the Cross, we will
find mercy, forgiveness, and redemption. (CCC 504-505, 539) archstl.
As of Monday, October 24:
Immaculate Conception is at 93% of the $150,000 goal with $139,100, with 37 gifts out of 95 families and
individuals. St. Vincent is at 66% of the $325,000 goal with $214,730 with 74 gifts out of 234 families and
individuals. Getting closer to both parish goals! I will give a tally of where we are after what was supposed
to be this final weekend in next week’s bulletin.
We now move to CLOSING THE CAMPAIGN for our 2 parishes, which involves getting back ALL the

feel you cannot afford the pledge suggested, please consider a one-year, or a one-time pledge; if you
cannot or choose not to support the campaign, please write $0 in the pledge, sign your commitment and
turn it in. If you have discarded or lost your commitment card, please put your pledge, any checks, or your
$0 pledge, sign the note and drop it in the collection basket or mail it in. I have copies of everyone’s
PLEASE turn in your commitment cards in anytime during the month of November. I will be sending a note
by mail to all those families who have not responded. Please give kind attention to this. We will be

The launch of the World Apostolate of Fatima's U.S. Tour for Peace is
underway and coming to our Diocese!
The historic tour, marking the 100th Anniversary of the apparitions of Our
Lady at Fatima, Portugal, will feature the world-famous International Pilgrim
Virgin Statue, traveling worldwide for nearly 70 years. The tour runs through
all 50 states and will be an extraordinary occasion of healing, hope, and
grace. Any who have been in the presence of this special Statue (created in
1947 based on Sr. Lucia's description of her encounters with Our Lady) and
blessed by Pope Pius XII) know that.
I hope you'll be able to experience the blessing of gathering with others
devoted to Our Lady when the statue visits these parishes in our Diocese:
St. Joseph, Cottleville, MO Nov.10th 8am to 5 pm St. Joseph, Manchester,
MO Nov 11th 8:30 to 5 pm St. Gabriel, St. Louis, MO. Nov. 12th 8am to 5 pm
St. Wenceslaus, St. Louis, MO Nov. 13 9 am to 5pm Sacred Heart,
Florissant, MO. Nov. 14 8am to 5 pm
This epic journey across the United States is to allow Our Lady of Fatima,
the Queen of Peace, to claim her dominion over our country and to bring the
message of Fatima—the Peace Plan from heaven—to a world in need. Our
Lord told Sister Lucia that he had placed the peace of the world in the
Immaculate Heart. The Pilgrim Virgin Statue has visited more than 100
countries, bringing Mary's powerful and timeless message of salvation and
hope to millions. Countless favors and graces have been reported
wherever the Virgin Statue has traveled.
Please join us! And will you help us spread the word about the tour by
forwarding this email to friends, family, and any others who might be
touched by Our Lady... Contact (Dan Burke 314 918-8323) for more
information about our Diocesan visit. Say “Yes” to Our Lady! www.
