Suffering for Souls
Come to Love Suffering
I want you to detach yourself, not only from creatures, but also from yourself. My daughter, I want to delight in the love of your heart, a pure love, virginal, unblemished, untarnished. The more you will come to love suffering, My daughter, the purer your love for Me will be (Diary, 279).
Lord Jesus, only with Your love can I come to love suffering. Love me that I may love and carry my cross daily. Help us all to be Your disciples as You taught us: "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me" (Lk 9:23).

Important Message to all Parishioners
If you know that one of your friends or loved ones is nearing death, or was recently diagnosed with a terminal illness, please notify the parish office immediately so that we can make an appointment to administer the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. Oftentimes I am not notified until the final hours of life and not always able to get to them. In addition to my responsibilities in the parish, I too have aging and ill parents in Lafayette and am having to tend to their needs as well. Thank you for your consideration
. Fr. Buddy
Coffee, Doughnuts, and Fellowship
Please join us on the 1st Sunday of every month after 7 AM mass for coffee and doughnuts in Vandebilt Hall. Catch up with an old friend or make a new one. “Forsake not an old friend; for the new is not comparable to him: a new friend is as new wine; when it is old, thou shalt drink it with pleasure.” Sirach 9:10

Father Buddy's 1st Fleet Blessing
1st Saturday Devotion Promises
Our lady has promised to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, shall:
1. Go to confession,
2. Receive Holy Communion,
3. Recite five decades of the Rosary,
4. “And keep me company for fifteen minutes while meditating
on the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention
of making reparation to me.”
The truth of God’s Word exists before Mary’s own choosing. She submits to a word, a truth she did not create.
At the heart of the “pro-choice” mentality is the idea that we create our own truth. This mentality holds that the value of the unborn child, and that child’s right to exist, depend upon the choice of the mother.
