A Note from Your Deacon:


A Note from Your Deacon

As I continue my notes to you for Respect Life Month, I would like to speak about pornography, not necessarily an easy topic to write about, but one that is so prevalent in our society.  Pornography is a multi-billion dollar industry.  Its use has increased tremendously because of the internet and mobile technology, which has made it accessible, affordable, and anonymous. These factors also make it much easier for children and teenagers to access pornography, which all parents need to be mindful of.  Both men and women of all age can become entangled in the lies and pain of pornography use and even addiction to it, which has devastating effects on the user and his or her spouse and family.   One of those that became addicted to internet pornography was my best friend and in the end, sadly cost him his marriage.  The Church teaches that pornography is wrong because it offends against the virtue of chastity and is a grave injury against the dignity of the human person.   Pornography wrongfully treats people as objects to be used, forgetting that we are all made in the image and likeness of God, “God created man in His own image; in the divine image he created him; male and female He created them” (Gen 1:27).  We were created- to know, love, and serve God.  We were created to love one another- treating each other with respect and dignity. 

 In 2015, the U.S Catholic Bishops felt the need to write a pastoral response to the problem of pornography in our culture; giving us the pastoral letter, “Create in Me a Clean Heart.”  The bishops shared that “everyone, in some way, is affected by increased pornography use in society. We all suffer negative consequences from its distorted view of the human person and sexuality.  Many good people struggle with this habit, including faithful Catholics, married and single people, fathers and mothers, and adolescents.  However, let’s remember the Church is called to be a "field hospital" for the wounded of the world.  No wound is out of the reach of Christ's redeeming grace. Christ is our hope! The Church proclaims the truth about love, sexuality, and the dignity of each person, and she seeks to provide the Lord's mercy and healing for those harmed by pornography.”  

 

There are many resources that are available for individuals struggling with issues related to pornography.  I would suggest starting with the John Paul II Center for the New Evangelization website, located at >>http://www.johnpaul2center.org , and then clicking on their Marriage and Family tab.  Locally in our diocese, Elizabeth Ministries, >>http://www.elizabethministry.com , offers a program called Reclaim, which is an anonymous web based program that assists individuals who may have an addiction to pornography.  Finally, always remember our Lord’s grace and assistance is available  to those that call out to Him, grace comes from heartfelt prayer and the sacraments, especially the sacrament of  confession…. and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free  (John 8:32).

 

In His Mercy,   Deacon Mark

 

ROSARY IN NEOPIT PARK

 

In spite of the inclement weather, members showed up to pray the Rosary last Saturday night.  It was a beautiful event with a lit up statute of the Virgin Mother with roses and a rosary shaped balloon float which the children released at the end of the service.  The Rosary was said for Menominee tribal leaders and public safety workers, our Big Drum family, MTE employees and their families, the elders and the youth.   There was a second Rosary prayed last night as well.


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

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

In the celebration of the Mass, the symbols that are being used, are not the only parts that are important, but also the association with them.

Water: It is not decoration for and in the Church, house of God, but it is being used for the Sacrament of Baptism and for blessing persons and objects. It is being placed at the entrance doors so that when we enter the Church, we make the sign of the cross with it as a sign of our identity, Christian coming to worship, praise, give thanks our Lord and present our petitions less unworthily and in going out we dip in it again to remind us of His holy presence in us and so share His holy presence to others after participating the Holy Mass.
