    We proclaim Jesus as Lord and ourselves as servants for His sake.

    September 15, 2013 Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Feast of Saint Thrse

    On Monday, September 30, there will be a

    wonderful program in church for the vigil of the

    feast of Saint Thrse. Beginning at 7:00 pm,

    some of our most loved musicians and soloists

    will present a concert of song and music

    interspersed with enlightening talks about Saint

    Thrse given by Elizabeth Ficocelli, author of

    Shower of Heavenly Roses inspiring stories of

    the powerful intercession of Saint Thrse.

    During the evening there will be veneration

    of relics of Saint Thrse and other saints from

    the vast collection of relics held by the

    National Shrine of the Little Flower.

    What are relics?

    The word relic comes from the Latin

    relinquo, literally meaning I leave, or I

    abandon. A relic is a piece of the body of a

    saint, an item owned or used by the saint, or

    an object which has been touched to the

    tomb of a saint.

    There are three classes of sacred relics. The

    first-class is a part of the saints body. (It is this

    type which is placed in an altar stone.) The

    second-class is a piece of the saints clothing

    or something used by the saint, while the third-

    class is an object which has been touched to

    a first-class relic.

    The veneration of relics of the saints is a

    profession of belief in several teachings of the

    Catholic faith: (1) the belief in everlasting life

    for those who have witnessed to Christ and His

    Holy Gospel; (2) the truth of the resurrection of

    the body for all persons on the last day; (3) the

    doctrine of the splendor of the human body

    and the respect which all should show toward

    the bodies of both the living and the

    deceased; (4) the belief in the special

    intercessory power which the saints enjoy in

    heaven; and (5) the truth of our closeness to

    the saints because of our connection in the communion of saints. Gods family

    goes beyond the limits of time and space.

    The relics of the saints and their veneration is just another in the long line of

    treasures which Jesus Christ has given to His Church. These relics summon us to

    appreciate more profoundly not only the heroes, who have served the Lord so

    selflessly and generously, but especially the love and mercy of the Almighty who

    called these His followers to the bliss of unending life in His eternal kingdom.

    Priests Convocation

    From the afternoon of Sunday, September 22 to Thursday September 26, the

    priests of the Archdiocese of Detroit will gather in convocation with the

    Archbishop in northern Michigan. All of the priests of the National Shrine will be

    attending. Monday through Thursday that week, our Deacon, Rev. Mr. Thomas

    Avery, will conduct a Communion Service at 6:30 am. On those mornings when

    we cannot find a priest for the 8:30 am Mass, Sister Noreen will conduct a

    communion service at 8:30 am. The schedule for that week will be in next weeks

    Shrine Herald. Any Mass intentions assigned to those Masses will be reassigned.

    Rosie, Carlito & Lord Stanley and Step by Step

    With Rosie approaching her 13th birthday (Fr. Anthony said that is 91 in human

    years) she has retired from long walks. She still enjoys a short walk now and then

    as well as a short swim when she can get one. The Step by Step next weekend will

    be a little too much for her. However she is supporting Stachu (Lord Stanley) in his

    walk and donated 10 milk bones in his name. If you would like to join Rosie you

    can put your donation in an envelope with Lord Stanleys name on it and put it in

    the collection or drop it at the office. All donations will go to the Step by Step
