Deacon Mark Writes



The readings this Sunday speak of the need to be constant and persistent in prayer.  While Moses prayed and had his arms raised, the Israelites would win in battle with the enemy.  When his arms had dropped for weariness, the tide turned and the Israelites would begin to lose. Quick thinking by Moses’ companions led them to hold and keep up the arms of Moses, so that the Israelite army had final victory.  They did not give up on prayer nor let those arms of Moses drop!  In the gospel, Jesus shares the parable of the widow and the judge, showing again  the value of perseverance.  The judge is not honest or kind but gives in to the widow’s demands because she continues to demand justice and does not relent. 

 These readings made me ask what were those things in my life which  I have constantly prayed about for a long time.   My reflections turned to my mother, who died five years ago this past week.  She was a good woman but she did not quite want to make a full leap of faith and trust in God.    I prayed for her for many, many  years to find peace and to believe in our Lord.  At the end of her life, as she was lay dying of cancer, unable to move and leave her bed, she told me saw Jesus and I could tell she had come to a deep sense of faith.  I asked her what He looked like but she gazed at me with love, and her eyes spoke what could not be expressed in words. Though it was hard experience to see one’s parent dying, I knew that at the end, God had answered my prayers for my Mom.  She had come to faith in Christ.

Upon Further Reflection:

A mother was teaching her four-year old daughter the Lord’s Prayer.  For several evenings at bedtime the little girl repeated it after her mother.  One night the girl said she was finally ready to do it solo.  The mother listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word right up to the end.  “Lead us not into temptation, the little girl prayed, “ and deliver us some email, Amen.”

(From -Sheridan, Deacon Tom. The Second Book of Catholic Jokes. Chicago: ACTA Publications. 2010.)

In His Mercy, 


Deacon Mark





 This week the children continued learning about the Rosary, focusing on the Joyful and the Sorrowful Mysteries. The children also had fun making a prayer wheel and learning the “Five Finger Prayer.” 

There is still time to sign up your child to join us in our religious education program. Come on Wednesday night at 5:45 to enroll you child or call me at 715-851-2947.

On October 26th there will be a special meeting for the parents/guardian and an informational talk about “Bible a Catholic View Not a Book But a Library” in Barrett Hall 6:00-7:15, All are welcome. We will start at 6:00 with the parents and children discussing the Faith Formation program and then dismissing the children to their classrooms. Once the children have been dismissed to their classrooms, we will begin our discussion.  

Mark your calendar now, for November 1st, All Saints Day, a Holy Day of Obligation. Mass will be at 6:00 pm at St. Michael’s. The Faith Formation children will participate in this celebration! The parents and children should come to Barrett Hall at 5:45pm prior to Mass. 

On November 16th the older students will be participating in the Hunters Mass at 6:00 pm. What a great opportunity for the children to participate with the parish community in these celebrations of the Holy Eucharist. Be sure to come and share in the faith community. 

If you have questions about the Faith Formation Program call me at 715-851-2947.

God bless,

                                                                                                         October - Respect Life Month

Respect Life Program begins in October and ends September 2017.  This year's theme is "MOved by Mercy."

    As a gift from God, every human life is sacred from conception to natural death.  The life and dignity   of every person must be respected and protected at every stage and in every condition.  The right to   life is the first and most fundamental principle of human rights that leads Catholic to actively work for   a world of greater respect for human life and greater commintment to justice and peace.  



Good things are happening around St. Michael’s.  Each week, we will spotlight a person, persons or group that that spotlight shines on.  If you know of someone from our parish that we need to recognize, please call or E-mail St. Michaels.  Thank you.
