Jubilee Year of St. Paul
    Last Sunday, as we celebrated the feast of St. Peter and St. Paul, the universal church was celebrating the beginning of the Special Jubilee to the Apostle Paul.  As parishioners of St. Paul Parish we are ushering in a year of intense study about and prayer to our patron.  May this graced time which is devoted to remembering and honoring the great Apostle to the Nations be an occasion of renewed faith and fervor for you and your family.
     As the year progresses, please take the time to read the monthly bulletin letters that will focus on our patron.  Also, take some time to pray to our patron for a renewed and deeper faith in Christ.  St. Paul’s motto was “For me to live is Christ”.  By St. Paul’s intercession, may the same be so for each of us. 
    If you wish, you could use the following prayer to begin each day of the year.

Holy Apostle Paul, help me at the beginning of this new day to offer my body and the whole of my life as a living sacrifice to God.  Do not permit me to conform myself to this age but rather, by your intercession, may I be transformed by the renewal of my mind.  Through this renewal help me to judge what is God’s will, what is good, pleasing, and perfect.  For the one whom I seek and serve is Jesus Christ who is the Lord, now and forever. Amen.

Christian Formation News
Grades K – High School
      All children from grade K – 10 must register.  The registration does not roll over from one year to the next.  You can pick up a form in the back of the church or you can visit the parish office Monday – Thursday during office hours or give us a call at 483-8481 and ask us to mail you a form.  We would be happy to do this

Grades K- 3  The children in grades K – 3 attend classes during the weekend liturgies.  We use a Lectionary Catechesis which is based on the Gospel of the week.  Kindergarten students are not obliged to attend regularly.  However, beginning with grade l, students must attend classes on a weekly basis as the program for 1st Communion is a two year program.  It is vital that students continue with their Christian Formation even after their 1st Communion. This year’s program will begin on September 15, 2007

Grades 4 – 10 +    This program is designed for both parents and children.  Parents are asked to attend the sessions as they have the opportunity to refresh their memory on important matters of the faith . This year’s program for the Generations of Faith has come to an end as of April 13th.

Question of the Week
14th Sunday in Ordinary Time 
(The Gracious Will of God)
Reading I:
Zechariah 9:9-10 (Your King Shall Come)
Reading II:
Romans  8: 9-13 (You Are in the Spirit)
Matthew 11: 25-30 (Come to Me)

Question for Adults:  Who are the “little ones” in today’s world who seem to “get” the message of Jesus?  The term “little ones” is interpreted in many ways.  Sometimes it interpreted as referring to the poor and the downtrodden.  At other times the expression is used to refer to people who are mentally challenged.  And yet, at other times, the term refers to the better educated who seem to have lost their spiritual center.  Perhaps there are others who would fall into this category of “little ones”.  The question of the week is not so concerned with how many different categories we can come up with but rather which ones seem to “get” the message.  Perhaps we are in one such category.  Let’s take the time to reflect on this.

Question for Children? Do I come to Jesus when I have problems so that he can make my burdens lighter? This is a pretty straight forward question for children.  The only problem with children is that they are often thinking in a very concrete mode.  This makes it difficult for them to recognize the fact that their prayers are being answered.   They would need your help in this area.  Try to help your child to understand various ways of recognizing the presence of Jesus in their life.  Once they are able to see his presence they will have no problem turning to him in time of need.

What does the term Capital Sin (sometimes called deadly) really mean and do they still exist?  The original seven capital sins were Pride, Covetousness, Lust, Anger, Gluttony, Envy, and sloth.  These sins were deadly or capital (as in the most important things to watch out for) because they did not stand alone. If we are not careful to avoid these attitudes or behaviors we could very easily find ourselves becoming guilty of sinning in many other ways. For example, if we are not careful to curb our anger, we could end up fighting, ruining important relationships, even killing someone.   Consequently we could experience a spiritual death.

News from Your Spiritual
Adoption Baby
. . . month six.
“I’m sitting up straight now!”
       The baby you spiritually adopted is now in its sixth month of development.  He or she is doing well and wants you to know that your prayers are working.  Don’t stop now.  “Just because I don’t contact you more often doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate everything you are doing.  Here’s a little update on what is going on by way of my development.” 
    The baby’s oil and sweat glands are functioning; these help regulate body temperature.  A white filmy layer covers the baby and protects his/her delicate skin from the surrounding amniotic fluid and from scratches as the baby twists and turns.  This waxy substance will be quickly absorbed into the skin soon after birth.  He/She can now respond to sound.  The lungs are fairly well developed and he/she would stand a good chance of survival if born at this time.
