Dear Theologians,

In Misericordiae Vultus, the papal bull declaring the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, beginning December 8, 2015, the Pope calls us to contemplate the mystery of mercy.

“We  need  constantly  to  contemplate  the  mystery  of  mercy.  It  is  a  wellspring  of  joy,  serenity,  and peace.  Our  salvation  depends  on  it.  Mercy:  the  word  reveals  the  very mystery  of  the  Most  Holy  Trinity.  Mercy:  the  ultimate  and  supreme  act  by  which  God comes to meet us. Mercy: the fundamental law that dwells in the heart of every person who looks sincerely into the eyes of his brothers and sisters on the path of life. Mercy: the bridge that connects God and man, opening our hearts to a hope of being loved forever despite our sinfulness. At times we are called to gaze even more attentively on mercy so that we may become a more effective sign of the Father’s action in our lives.” (Pope Francis, Misericordiae Vultus, #2)

Please keep our brothers from the Diocese of Kansas City-Saint Joseph in your prayers regarding the retirement of Bishop Finn.

Please keep Mr. Christopher Damo, St. Michael’s Knight of Columbus Member who died this past weekend at our Softball Tournament and his family in your prayers.  Details for the funeral will be forthcoming.

Please remember the deacons in prayer, as they will be taking their S.T.B. oral exams this week.

Congratulations to the Diocese of Victoria, Texas on their new bishop, Bishop-Elect Brendan Cahill.

Congratulations to all who participated in the 6th Annual 5K Shadow Nun Run. It was a very good Theologian turn-out.
