We cannot lose hope. God is in charge. We need to continue to pray for all people of the Archdiocese of St. Louis. The Battle of Lepanto (October 7, 1571) is a great example of prayer changing the outcome of a dire situation for Christendom. Since October 7th is the day before the “Listening” Sessions (or as the laity calls it “Telling Sessions”), let’s ramp up our prayers and ask God for His protection and help! Also, it is perfectly appropriate to ask at the “Telling Sessions” questions like how many souls are okay to leave behind? Will you give us an accounting to the penny of every church you close in this process? Anyone who is willing to be a facilitator for these sessions, must believe that All Things New is a good program, and should be willing to answer hard questions about it.
“In her voyage across the ocean of this world, the Church is like a great ship being pounded by the waves of life’s different stresses. Our duty is not to abandon ship but to keep her on course.” – St. Boniface
The Canon Lawyer Event on October 25th is almost full. We are so thankful for the many, many people involved in bringing Canon Lawyer Philip Gray with the St. Joseph Foundation to St. Louis. We already have 60+ parishes represented, and almost 250 people. We may add events while Mr. Gray is in town, or later in the year. After your “Listening” Session at your parish, you may want to meet Mr. Gray. Just use the link below to get on the Wait List.
