The Word of God urges us take off the old self and put on the new. The word “vanity” means different things to different people. Some think of the bathroom counter. Others think of it as a preoccupation with one’s physical appearance. According to Qoheleth, the author of Book of Ecclesiastes, vanity defines worthless and futile pursuits: vanity of vanities, all things are vanity. Qoheleth lived among a people so intent on the pursuit of wealth and possessions that they became forgetful of God, and of goodness. He asserts that nothing but sorrow and grief come from our earthly labors-far better for us to store up for ourselves treasures in heaven.

Speaking to the Colossians, St. Paul couldn't agree more, telling us to seek what is above..not of what is on earth. He, too, saw people so bogged down with everyday stresses and anxieties that they had lost sight of who they were and what they were called to be. Put earthly parts to death, take off the old self and put on the new self, he states. We are called upon to part with the sins and selfishness of our past, and concentrate on the pursuit of eternal life. He promises that we who die 

with Christ in baptism will one day appear with him in glory. Telling us that our true identity is hidden from us, as is our future fate, we are encouraged to find our true selves by uniting more closely to Jesus.

In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus warns against greed and gluttony, reminding us that one’s life does not consist of possessions, but in the spiritual treasures we store up for ourselves by doing good and seeking justice. Jesus uses the all-too-familiar parable of the wealthy landowner building bigger barns for his harvest to show us that what we have here is not making the journey with us to the afterlife. All it takes is one swift wind to knock down those barns and scatter the grains like dust across the countryside. It would have been far better for this man, who had been so blessed, to share his wealth, especially with the hungry and the homeless, the widow and the orphan. Jesus then points out the moral of the story by saying, woe to those who store up treasure for themselves but are not rich in what matters to God.


What does matter to God? How much money we have or received? It may have more to do with how much we are willing to share that how much we can keep for ourselves. What matters most to God is our faith, hope and charity, and how we use these virtues to benefit our brothers and sisters. So much of our time and attention is devoted to work, financial matters and recreation, there is little time left for prayer. The landowner’s sudden demise is a sign for us that we will face the judgment day at a time we least expect. Our degree s and property holdings will not speak for us on that day, only how much love we shared with those around us. Jesus owned nothing. He was a prince who lived like a pauper, born in someone else’s barn and buried in another’s tomb. Everything he did have he gave for us-to break the chains of sin, Satan and death, forever and for everyone. In order to live like Jesus, we have to learn to give and to love like Jesus, not counting the cost. Yes, Christ came with nothing and left with nothing, but gained everything in the process- for himself and for us. He did it because he loves us. What we do for love of him will help us to know him, love him and serve him and one day be joined to him forever in heaven. A blessed Weekend to you!

A blessed weekend to you!

Fr. Joel







Why send your child to Faith Formation Classes? Yes, your child’s Catholic education comes primarily from you. We here at St. Michael’s are there to help to enhance that education. We offer the opportunity to have your child to join in with children their age to celebrate their faith in prayer, song, Bible stories, and arts and crafts. We also help prepare your child to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion. We are SIX WEEKS away from the start of Faith Formation Classes! Classes begin on Wednesday, September 14th at 6:00 pm. Registration forms are available in the front of the church. You can turn the completed form at the parish office or put it in the

box next to the registration forms in the front of the church. It is very helpful to have the registrations forms in prior to classes beginning so we can better plan for this years’ classes. If you have any questions be sure to call me at 715-851-2947. This year part of our program has a parent/guardian component. Throughout the Faith Formation year we will have a few sessions about our Catholic faith. Faith Formation Classes are in need of volunteer catechist! It is not hard to become a catechist. First, you have to have the desire to grow our Catholic faith. Secondly, you have to be willing to give up some of your time to put your faith into action. Thirdly, you need to take a session on Protecting God’s Children. You are provided with all of the lessons and supplies that you need to help the children to enhance their faith. As you can see it is as easy as one, two, three! I am asking all of you to pray about this and listen to hear is God calling you to help. 

Summer Fun - Frozen Ice Chalk

Here is a really fun activity!

You need: Corn starch, water, water color paint.

Step one: Take equal amounts of corn starch and water, add the water color paint and mix well.

Step two: Put the mixture in an ice cube tray or in any container that you can put in the freezer.

Step three: After the mixtures are frozen, go out and have fun! The color might not come through right away, just be patient and once the water evaporates the colors will appear!
