A Note from your Deacon

Last week, I made reference to various March for Life rallies that were taking place throughout the country.  At the “OneLife LA,” the pro-life rally in Los Angles, one of the speakers selected was Karen Gaffney, a person born with Down’s Syndrome.  To put it simply, Karen is an amazing woman. Her parents didn’t tell her that Down syndrome would keep her back from achieving goals in her life. Instead, they encouraged and supported her to pursue her talents — and to push herself beyond her comfort zone.  She became a long-distance swimmer who has crossed the English Channel, Lake Tahoe and other bodies of water.  She is the president of a nonprofit organization that champions full inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities in families, schools, the workplace and the community. She is a part-time employee at Oregon Health and Sciences University. She is a sought-after public speaker, and she became the first living person with Down syndrome to receive an honorary doctorate degree when she received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from the University of Portland on May 5, 2013.

When interviewed by Elisabeth Deffner for the National Catholic Register, on what she was going to share at “OneLife LA,” Karen responded, “Those of us with Down syndrome are different, yes, but I think we are made for greater … not less. Yes, it is hard to live with Down syndrome, but isn’t it hard to live with any kind of disability? Does that mean we should prevent people who may have a disability from coming into this world? That’s what many in the health care industry want. They want to screen us out before we are born, because they don’t think we are “made for greater.” I don’t think they have the right to do that.”

Her final comment in the interview was, “I will be happy if people come away from the event wanting to learn more about Down syndrome and wanting to talk more about Down syndrome. I will be happy if they go home and reach out to the family in their neighborhood or in their church who has a child with Down syndrome and try to get to know them better. I will be happy if they come away from the event and reach out to that person they see in the workplace who may have Down syndrome or some other disability. I want people to show by their actions that all lives really do matter.”  Yes, all lives do matter, especially those with an extra chromosome!


Upon Further Reflection

Three boys were bragging about their fathers. 


The Mass: A slice at a Time - The Liturgical Year

Continuing the sharing on the making the sign of the cross: This guy discovered 6 perspectives on Sign of the cross that opens us to life- transforming graces.  Mini Creed: The Sign of the Cross is a profession of faith in God as he revealed himself. It serves as an abbreviated form of the Apostles’ Creed. Touching our forehead, breast and shoulders, we declare our belief in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We are announcing our faith in what God has done — the creation of all things, the redemption of humanity from sin and death, and the establishment of the Church, which offers new life to all. When we sign ourselves we are making ourselves aware of God’s presence and opening ourselves to his action in our lives. That would be enough, wouldn’t it? But there is much, much more.  The first boy says, “My dad is a poet.  He scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, calls it a poem, and they give him $50.  The second boy says, “That’s nothing.  My dad is in advertising.  He scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, calls it a song, and they give him $100.  The third boy says, “I’ve got you both beat.  My dad is a deacon.  He scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, calls it a homily, and it takes eight people to collect all the money!”

In His mercy,

THE PARISH CEMETERY COMMITTEE 

Treasurer

The parish cemetery committee treasurer assists the pastor in making sure that there are accurate and detailed accounts of all receipts and disbursements for the cemetery operation.  Many parishes have paid staff who carry out these responsibilities.  The treasurer shall ensure that there is a separate perpetual care endowment fund for the cemetery. The treasurer shall have the responsibility to see that the proper amounts/percentage of sales that are to be deposited in the funds are placed in the perpetual care endowment fund and accounted for. The treasurer shall maintain good communication with the parish finance council. One method is to provide the parish finance council with an accounting of receipts and disbursements of the cemetery on a regular basis.
