MAY GOD BLESS MONSIGNOR BOCIAN! Already the pastor of three parishes, he has been appointed pastor of four more. That’s seven parishes with one pastor! That has to be some sort of a record! It wasn’t that long ago that each of the seven had its own pastor — and some of them had an assistant pastor or two. Say a prayer for Msgr. Bocian, that he will stay healthy, live a long life, keep his equilibrium and not lose his mind!
We encourage all of our Catholic brethren in Shenandoah — and elsewhere — to put aside all ethnic rivalries and work together with their pastors for the good of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.


PRAY TO THE SAINTS IN PURGATORY
AND THEY, IN TURN,
WILL PRAY FOR YOU!

HELEN JOAN WINKLER,
a member of St. Vincent dePaul Parish, died on Monday, 01 November.
Born on 20 September 1925, she was 85 years of age.
Helen is the sixth of the seven children of the late Anthony S. and Mary A. (Kweder) Winkler.
Her brothers and sisters are: Connie Winkler Applegate (deceased); Ann M. Winkler (deceased); Anthony Winkler (deceased); John M. Winkler (deceased); Joseph Winkler (deceased); Marie Jeannette Winkler Vitale.
Helen was baptized at St. Vincent dePaul Church on 08 October 1925 by Fr. Valanciunas.
There was a viewing at the Oravitz Funeral Home on Thursday evening, 04 November, and a second viewing in St. Vincent dePaul Church prior to the 11:00 am Mass of Christian Burial on Friday, 05 November.
The interment took place in Our Lady of Lourdes Cemetery, Shenandoah Heights.
Helen was fortified with the sacraments of Penance, Anointing of the Sick and Holy Viaticum (Holy Eucharist) prior to her death.
Devoted to the Divine Mercy and the praying of the Chaplet, she died at 03:05 pm on the Solemnity of All Saints in her home in Lost Creek on the street known as Mount Olive. It is not too much of a stretch to think that God arranged these “coincidences” in order to indicate His favor to one of His humble servants.
Eternal rest grant unto Helen, O Lord, and let the perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

"I never approved of a schism, nor will I approve of it for all eternity... It is not by separating from the Church that we can make her better." Martin Luther
Last Sunday (31 Oct), many of our Protestant (especially Lutheran) brothers and sisters celebrated Reformation Sunday.
It was on 31 October 1517 that Dr. Martin Luther, a Catholic priest of the Augustinian Order, posted his 95 THESES on the church door of Wittenberg. At the time, Luther was a Catholic priest in good standing and his posting of the theses did not immediately diminish his good standing — although it certainly caught the attention of the authorities.
I have read Luther’s theses several times and — strangely enough — find myself in agreement with many (not all, but perhaps most) of them. My agreement does not in any way contradict my fidelity to the Holy Church or to the Apostolic See. Quite frankly, of course, some of Luther’s theses are red herrings.
Luther was a polemicist and a rhetorician. He had a talent for asserting his point of view in such a way as to rouse the passions of his readers and listeners. I remember in my younger days reading some of Luther’s sermons and diatribes against the Pope and the hierarchy and thinking to myself: “Gee whiz! This guy is fascinating! I wonder, if I had been a young man living in Germany in the 16th century, whether I would have been carried away from my Catholic Faith by the sheer emotion of Luther’s oratory.” The spirit of anti-authoritarianism and antinomianism that issues forth from his lips and his pen is very appealing to young men. Would I have become a Lutheran? It is an unanswerable question, inasmuch as I was not a contemporary of Luther. I would hope that I would have kept my wits about me and said to Dr. Luther, “Thanks, but no thanks, Martin! I do see your point and I do see that there are some things in the Church that need reform, but your way of going about it is all wrong!” — and then stayed faithful to the Successor of Peter and to the Faith handed down by the saints — while, all the time, working for reformation in myself and, to the extent possible, in the Church as well.
I wish all Lutherans (and other Protestants) would re-examine their separation from the Chair of Peter and — without abandoning their fundamental consciences — come back into union with us.
It is time — and well past time — for the silliness, the pride and the anger to be put aside.
It is perfectly clear that the fundamental principles of Protestantism are insupportable:

FIDES SOLA? (FAITH ALONE?)

There is no FAITH that does not produce WORKS! Faith without works is dead!

SCRIPTURA SOLA? (SCRIPTURE ALONE?)

This flies in the face of logic and experience. Every one reads Scripture within the context of some tradition. It is impossible to read Scripture without some sort of tradition. The principle “Scripture alone” is itself a species of “tradition”! The only question is: Whose tradition? As a Catholic, I believe in the Tradition that gave us the Scriptures in the first place, the Tradition that pre-existed the Scriptures and that faithfully and authentically interprets them, from the time of the Apostles to the present day.

I wish Lutherans (and other Protestants) would reflect on the fact that Martin Luther never intended to start a new religion and there is historical evidence that indicates that he was blindsided by his own arrogance and, no doubt, by the stupidity of his Catholic adversaries, not excluding Pope Leo X, who probably should have invited Martin in for tea and crumpets and conversation instead of excommunicating him.

Dear Lutheran (and other Protestant) brothers and sisters: Please come back home!

RECALL NOTICE
The maker of all human beings (GOD) is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units (code named Adam and Eve) resulting in the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed “Sorrow-Inducing Non-morality” (S.I.N.). Some of the symptoms include:

 


Loss of direction
Foul vocal emissions
Amnesia of Origin
Lack of peace and joy
Selfish or violent behavior
Depression or confusion in the mental component
Fearfulness
Idolatry
Rebellion
Sometimes the units are just plain mean.

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect is providing factory-authorized repair and service, free of charge, to correct this defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most graciously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. Some of the following procedures will be necessary in this repair:

1. The disk in the heart component must be scrubbed clean of all viruses.
2. The mental component must be overwritten with new software, (especially WORD of God 3.0)
3. Virus Protection software (such as Pure Eyes 2.0) must be installed to protect the unit from further damage.
4. Connection to the Maker of all human beings (GOD) must be re-established through the restoration of communication software in the unit. This is done by installing COMMUNION 2.0 Software.
5. Communications protocols must be upgraded to make sure that the unit says “only the good things men need to hear” and to be sure the unit speaks only that which is true.
Please bring your unit to the nearest Catholic Parish for immediate service. While it is true that WORD of God 3.0 is available for immediate download, an interpretive key must be installed on site at the Catholic parish. Without this interpretive key, WORD of God 3.0 may not function properly in the unit. Further, scrubbing the disk of the heart component can only be done by an authorized technician as well as the installation of COMMUNION 2.0 software. Jesus has personally authorized these technicians to do the work necessary to repair your unit.

WARNING
Continuing to operate the human-being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to further dangers and problems and will result in the unit being permanently quarantined. For more information on avoiding the “Hell sub-routine” send a kneemail to Jesus at: Jesuspaiditall@oncalvary.org
Please note that emergency service is always available. For information on the location of Catholic churches and times for Mass, Confession and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, go to www.masstimes.org. Please spread the word on this recall!
