Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – The Universal Call to Holiness
The saints are great models of holiness. But we are all called
to live lives of holiness. The universal call to holiness was
central to the Second Vatican Council. “Every member of the
faithful is called to holiness and to mission” (Pope St. John
Paul II). Taking on the Cross of Christ and following Him can
be an difficult journey. Transform your journey today, through
continuous improvement in small steps. Can you make 1
degree of spiritual progress this week?
Where there is sadness… Joy.
Last year, Pope Francis challenged his fellow priests to be
“shepherds living with the smell of the sheep.” Our Holy Father
called them and us to offer Christ’s grace and peace to the poor
In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds us that He is “the good
shepherd” and promises to “lay down his life for his sheep”
(John 10:11). We, in turn, are called to sacrifice for others.
The Annual Catholic Appeal offers each of us an opportunity to
shine light, bring hope and spread joy to our neighbors. Like
Christ, the Good Shepherd, we seek to lay down our lives for the
sheep. A gift to the Appeal is a reflection Christ’s love and peace,
offering hope and healing a world in need.
We begin our appeal at our 2 parishes this weekend. This
brings challenges as parishioners attend both parish Masses.
Immaculate Conception pledge cards will be on a table in the
back of Church this weekend. Please pick up yours after Mass.
There will also be a table in the cafeteria entrance for St. Vincent
parishioners to make their pledge. At St. Vincent’s, pledge cards
will be in the school lobby.
Some notes from Kathy Holdmeyer, chair of the ACA at St.
Vincent’s: ‘Every gift is important to the Appeal. If you are unable
to give today, there is an option on the pledge card to make a
payment or payments on the months that you select.
‘If your employer is a “Matching Gift Company” request and
complete a Matching Gift Form from the company; bring the
completed form with you when filling out your ACA pledge card
so they can be sent in
‘If you missed the ACA video, or would like to view it again,
please visit archstl.org/aca. The video is quite excellent this
Thanks Kathy & Connie for chairing the ACA at our parishes!
