From the Pastor: Veterans Day

by cduesing

This past spring, as I was flying to Italy as part of a pilgrimage group, I was seated next to a young serviceman from Fort Knox. He was not part of our group but was traveling because of a job that he would be doing in Italy. I asked him about his service, and he […]

From the Pastor: Satan Is Real!

by cduesing

There is a very strange story about Pope Leo XIII and the Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel. The Holy Father was at prayer during Mass in 1884, and suddenly he fell to the ground. Some reports say that when those with him came to him, he had no pulse. As they tried to revive […]

From the Pastor — An explanation of the Mass — part 1

by cduesing

August 5, 2018 GATHER THE PEOPLE I have heard the Mass described as, “Gather the people. Tell the stories. Break the bread.” Not a bad summary of what the Mass is all about. As we go through the Mass over these six weeks, we will begin with the beginning–the gathering of the people. Please remember […]

From the Pastor

This weekend we begin the most sacred week in the Church’s calendar. As important as Christmas is, it is the suffering, death and resurrection of the Lord that has won for us the great victory.  It is why Jesus was born.  I hope that each of you will take part as fully as possible in […]

From the Pastor: National Catholic Schools Week

This week, beginning Sunday, January 28 is National Catholic Schools Week. It is a time to celebrate the great gift that Catholic schools are. Here in the Diocese of Covington, we have a particularly rich history of Catholic education that we need to acknowledge and celebrate. A few years ago Bishop Foys announced that he […]

From the Pastor: Rejoice Always!

by cduesing

The Third Sunday of Advent is known as Gaudete Sunday. Gaudete means “joy,” and in the readings we repeatedly are told to rejoice in the Lord. Saint Paul goes so far, in the second reading, to tell us to “rejoice always.” I recently was at the funeral of a friend who had died very suddenly and […]

From the Pastor: More Senseless and Horrific Violence

by cduesing

November 13, 2017 Last Sunday we saw the latest in a seemingly unending series of slaughters of innocent people. In just the past month we have seen 54 people killed and 564 people injured in the shooting in Las Vegas. A week and a half ago 8 people in New York were run down and […]

From the Pastor: Pray the Rosary

by cduesing

October 15, 2017 Last week I began to write about the rosary as a meditation device that allows us to enter deeply into the lives of Jesus and Mary. I want to continue with that, as I have spoken with people this week who were not taught the Mysteries of the Rosary and are not […]

From the Pastor: Tu Es Petrus

by cduesing

August 27, 2017 Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome is, like most churches, in the form of a cross. At the meeting place of the main aisle and the two arms of the cross is the Papal Altar. Standing around the altar, if you look up, you see the largest dome in the world, which was […]
