The Second Joyful Mystery: The Visitation


A Reflection from Dan Allen, Parishioner

The following is the ninth of twenty monthly reflections about the Mysteries of the Rosary as they relate to family life. The mysteries will not be necessarily chronological but presented as they interact with the liturgical year.  For previous installments, click here.


FFFOne of the greatest remedies for a messy house that I know is to have visitors.  In my childhood home and current one, nothing lights a fire under the cleaning crew more than people coming to visit.  This, of course, is a natural human response.  We want to welcome our guests well to a presentable environment, and we cannot claim that the demands of family life do not sometimes get the better of our ability to keep our space organized.  However, even when we clean our homes, there is usually a spot or two that remain in disarray but mercifully out of the sight of guests.  Whether under a bed, in a closet, or in an entire room with the door strategically closed, we all know the go-to place when we have run short on time preparing for the guests to arrive.  In our rosary mystery this month, we do not hear about the cleanliness of anyone's home, but we find out a great deal about the guests who come to visit.


Living our Faith at Home

SVdP Many times, our inability to keep our homes clean is due to the material possessions that we have accumulated.  Instead of cleaning together as a family only to make our houses tidy, this month clean with the aim in mind of sharing your surplus with others.  Each family member could go through individual possessions and select items he or she would like to donate to St. Vincent de Paul Society or some other worthy organization.  As you collect the items, discuss why you chose to give the items you did and pray together for the future recipients of your good will.

Did you know....

FFF We sometimes refer to John the Baptist as the forerunner.  This is because he was, throughout his life, announcing the arrival of Jesus to the world.  He got a head start by doing so inside his mother's womb, and he continued this mission as an adult, announcing the coming of Christ and then diminishing his own prominence to make way for Jesus.

Young Parishioner Sponsors Blood Drive in Father's Honor

Blood Drive Save a Life, Be The Cure
Saint Pius X Blood Drive

Saturday, October 22
9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.

Holy Cross Room


 

Hello All. My name is Jack Rodriguez. My family and I have been parishioners here for many years. Not all of you probably know me, but you might have known my father, Dr. Michael Rodriguez. About five years ago, my father was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, and almost a year ago, he passed away. He was well known and loved within the community, and he was my best friend.

 

For my Eagle Scout Project, I am organizing two large-scale blood drives in his honor and one of them will take place at Saint Pius X.
