  1. AS I READ THE FIRST READING I THOUGHT ABOUT MY GREAT GRANDFATHER WHO WAS OFFERED HIS UNCLES BELONGINGS AND ALL HIS LAND IF HE WOULD ‘GIVE US HIS ‘SILLY RELIGION”— BUT MY GREAT GRANDFATHER, A CATHOLIC, SAID HE WOULDN’T DO THAT EVER.–HE ASKED ”” WHY WOULD HE SELL HIS SOUL TO THE DEVIL?” HE REFUSED TO GIVE UP HIS CATHOLIC RELIGION AT THAT TIME-AS HIS UNCLE WAS WEALTHY AND NOT CATHOLIC—HIS FAITH MUST HAVE BEEN TESTED JUST AS SOME OF US SEEM TO BE TESTING OUR FAITH BELIEFS NOW.
    SO HE INHERITED NOTHING…..IT MUST HAVE BEEN DIFFICULT AT THAT TIME BECAUSE HE WAS YOUNG AND POOR AND A IMMIGRANT FROM IRELAND. IT WAS WELL KNOWN THAT THE UNCLE ADMIRED HIM AND LOVED HIM AND WANTED HIM TO INHERIT WHAT HE HAD BECAUSE HE KNEW GRANDFATHER WAS A GOOD PERSON—-AND HIS FAVORED NEPHEW. THIS READING REMINDED ME OF THIS STORY WELL KNOWN IN OUR FAMILY HISTORY! MY GRANDFATHER DID NOT ENTICE THE UNCLE TO WANT TO GIVE HIM HIS INHERITANCE TO MY GRANDPA…….——HE JUST KNEW MY GRANDFATHER WAS A GOOD PESON AND HE WANTED HIM TO SHARE AND MAKE HIS LIFE EASIER.
    THE STORY ALSO REMINDED ME OF FR SENK’S DELEMMA! WE CAN ALL UNDERSTAND WANTINGTO LEAVE SOMEONE WE LIKE AND ADMIRE WHO IS OUR FRIEND SOME OF OUR BELONGINGS! I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THE BISHOP OF VENICE DOESNT SEE IT THIS WAY ALSO!?? often BEFORE PEOPLE LEACVE THIS WORLD THEY WANT TO GIVE THIER THIGNS TO THOSE THEY ARE ABOUT WHO HAVE BEEN GOOD TO THEM TOO!

    I ALSO LOVED THE PRAYER FOR THOSE IN NEED OF GOD’S INTERSESSION IN SENDING DOWN HIS HELP … I WILL COPY THAT AND SAY IT DAILY! FOR FR. CHRISTOPHER.

    PLEASE PRAY FOR FR TODD ARNBERG WHO IS A PRESIT AT OUR PARISH IN THE THUMB AREA.. HE HAS BEEN ILL AND WAS UNABLE TO COME TO MASS LAST EVENING TO SAY GOOD BYE AS HE HAS TO RETURN TO COLORADO FOR MEDICAL TREATMENT FOR THE CANCER HE HAS HAD. HE IS A HUMBLE AND KIND AND WONDERFUL PRIEST! I ASK WHY GOD OFTEN TAKES THE GOOD ONES AWAY??
    MY FAITH IS TESTED AGAIN! PRAY FOR FR CHRIS AND FATHER TODD TOO!

  2. PRAYERS TO THE LORD AND TO THE HOLY SPIRIT TO GIVE FATHER SENK WHAT HE MOST NEEDS……
    I PRAY FOR THOSE WHO CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR JUSTICE FOR HIM FROM THE CHURCH WE ALL HAVE LOVED….
    WHEN WE MENTIONED A BISHOP’S NAME FROM MICHIGAN- WHO IS NOW DECEASED-BISHOP KENNETH UTENER –
    MENTIONED HIS NAME TO ANOTHER PRIEST IN THIS DIOCESE, THIS PRIEST SAID :
    ” BISHOP UTENER IS IRREPLACEABLE.”

    HE WAS A WONDERFUL BISHOP WHO KNEW AND CARED FOR HIS PRIESTS AND FOR HIS PEOPLE! ALL BISHOPS SHOULD HONOR THAT KIND OF HONOR BESTOWED ON THEM! PRAY THAT THE BISHOP IN VENICE FLORIDA WILL USE HIS ‘POWER’ ‘ TO FREE FATHER SENK FROM ANY KIND OF PUNISHMENT —-FREE FR CHRISTOPHER FROM THIS UNJUST TREATMENT. HE DOESNT DESERVE TO BE DENIED HIS RIGHTS AS A PRIEST!
    THAT IS MY PRAYER TONIGHT !
    TO ANOTHER PRIEST FRIEND
