Divine Mercy Novena starting Good Friday and ending the Saturday Divine Mercy Sunday. The image will be in church. Stop in at your convenience or say it at home.
Did you know: Feeling heard leads toward healing – Relief from hurt and anger often comes when one feels heard, when one’s pain and concerns are taken seriously, and a victim/survivor’s appropriate sense of range and indignation are acknowledged. Not being acknowledged contributes to a victim’s sense of being invisible, unimportant and unworthy; they are in some way revictimized.
Rice Bowls: Please return your rice bowl contributions to your CCD teacher, or place them in the BIG white rice bowl in the back of church by Easter.
St Mary’s First Holy Communion: Will be 8:00am next Sunday, April 28th.

AT THE GROCERY STORE
A man observed a woman in the grocery store with a
three-year-old girl in her basket. As they passed the cookie section, the
little girl asked for cookies and her mother told her, "No." The
little girl immediately began to whine and fuss, and the mother said quietly,
"Now Monica, we just have half of the aisles left to go through - don't be
upset. It won't be long now."
Soon, they came to the candy aisle and the little
girl began to shout for candy. When told she couldn't have any, she began to
cry. The mother said, "There, there, Monica, don't cry - only two more
aisles to go and then we'll be checking out."
When they got to the checkout stand, the little girl
immediately began to clamor for gum and burst into a terrible tantrum upon
discovering there'd be no gum purchased. The mother said serenely,
"Monica, we'll be through this checkout stand in 5 minutes and then you
can go home and have a nice nap."
The man followed them out to the parking lot and stopped the woman to compliment her. "I couldn't help noticing how patient you were with little Monica," he began.
The mother replied, "I'm Monica - my little girl's name is Tammy."
What Should a Catholic
Know about Cremation?
The Catholic Church permits cremation. For a number of reasons, the church prefers the burial of the body, but it does permit the celebration of a funeral with cremated remains.
Among the reasons in favor of burial of the body are these:
· Seeing the body confronts people with the mystery of life and death.
· The body naturally recalls stories of faith, family and friend-ship, the words a person spoke, the deeds a person performed.
· Although we have virtual electronic friendships, people best encounter another person through the body.
· The body experienced the sacraments – being washed in baptism and anointed in confirmation, and by eating and drinking the body and blood of Christ in communion.
· The body is destined for the glory of the resurrection.
· The final care of the body demonstrates dignity for the whole person.
· Burial imitates the burial of Jesus body, and thus constitutes another layer of discipleship.
If a Catholic chooses cremation, the church prefers that the final disposition of the remains be in a public place, such as a cemetery.
Many survivors make other arrangements: they retain the ashes at home, divide them among family members, or scatter them to the elements. The Catholic Church disapproves of these practices.
According to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the conservation of ashes in one’s home is not permitted, nor may they be scattered in the air, on land or at sea. Ashes may not be preserved in mementoes such as jewelry (Ad resurgendum cum Christo).
The careful placement of ashes honors the remains of the deceased in the same way that burial of the body does. Furthermore, it gives a permanent place where future generations may visit to remember, and where the person’s name can be honorably etched.
The Catholic Church also prefers that the final disposition of the ashes take place as soon as possible after cremation has happened. This will protect the remains from accidental or deliberate abuse.
Some crematoriums have a place where the family may gather during the process. If a family desires to be together, they may spend the time offering suitable prayers of thanksgiving and hope, such as Psalms 23, 25, 42, 51, 93, 114 and 115:1-12, 116, 118, 119, 121, 122, 123, 126, 130, 132 or 134.
There are three possibilities for the sequence of events. Here they are in order of preference:
1. The body of the deceased is present for the vigil service and the funeral Mass, and cremation happens before the committal at the cemetery. In this case, the body may be placed first in a ceremonial coffin that will be interred, and the removed from it for the cremation.
2. The cremation and committal take place before the funeral Mass. In this case, the cremated remains are interred in a cemetery or mausoleum, and then the mourners gather for the Eucharist.
3. The cremation takes place before any of the funeral rites begin, and the cremated remains are present for the vigil, the Mass, and the committal.
Whenever the ashes are presented in public for the funeral services, they should be treated with the same dignity and respect offered a human body. The container should be dignified, and the pallbearers should carry it with honor. Because of the compact nature of the ashes. Someone may be tempted to carry it more casually. It is all that remains of a human being. It deserves respect.
