Shroud of Turin to be shown on Holy Saturday telecast

Before his resignation took effect on February 28, Pope Benedict XVI authorized a television broadcast that will display the Shroud of Turin.

On Holy Saturday, March 31, Archbishop Cesare Nosiglia will lead a liturgical ceremony that will include a public display of the Shroud. The ceremony will be telecast and made available worldwide.

The last broadcast images of the Shroud were carried by the Italian RAI network in 1973. The last public display of the Shroud was in May 2010. Pope Benedict was among the 2 million people who came to venerate the Shroud during that exposition.

Lord Jesus,
You have chosen Your priests from among us
and sent them out to proclaim Your word and act in Your Name.
For so great a gift to Your Church, we give You praise and thanksgiving,we ask You to fill them with the fire of Your Love,
thae they are earthen vessels,we pray that Your power shine out through their weakness.

In their afflictions let them never be crushed; in their doubts, never despair;in temptation, never be destroyed; in persecution, never abandoned.
Inspire them through prayer to live each day the mystery of Your dying and rising.In times of weakness, send Your Spirit,
and help them to praise Your Heavenly Father and pray for the poor sinners.  By the same Holy Spirit put Your word on their lips and Your love in their hearts,
to bring good news to the poor and healing to the broken-hearted.  And may the gift of Mary, Your Mother,
to the disciple whom You loved, be your gift to every priest.
Grant that she who formed You in her human image,
may form them in Your Divine Image,
by the power of Your Spirit,to the glory of God the Father. Amen.

SPA Board Nominations- Due March 28th

Cougar Cash Update

The Scrip program is a year round program.  If you choose to participate, you are agreeing to purchase scrip throughout the calendar year of June 1, 2013-May 31, 2014.  Placing only a few orders without the intention of reaching your required profit of $250 does not qualify as fulfilling your agreement to participate. 
You do have the option to NOT participate. 
Please remember that this is an easy way to fulfill your fundraising obligation without spending more than you would normally.  Use it to buy your gas, groceries, clothing, gifts, etc…  It all adds up over time. 
Mrs. Windisch and I are trying to contact the Diocese to look into the possibility of adding local vendors.
