Celebrating 38 Years of Catholic Tradition in Education
Padre Pio Academy Fall Enrollment continues! Here’s the lay of the land: We are still accepting late enrollments requests, but the absolute cut-off is August 5th. If your plan is to have your children attend class here in the fall, enrollment time is down to two weeks. If you have some arm twisting to do to get to that point, twist harder!!! Your children will still need to be interviewed to determine their religious and social mien as well as tested to be sure that they can accommodate the proposed grade level. Initial information is available in the breezeway. We look forward to hearing from you!!! Very soon!!!
“Charity is a kind of desire seated in the will, so it presupposes a thought in the mind. And if the charity is to be truly supernatural and not just humanist or sentimental, it presupposes a supernatural object in the mind, and that is the supernatural object which is believed by faith. Therefore, true charity presupposes true faith, and without true supernatural faith there cannot be true charity. It follows that if today’s Roman officials have a faith at least seriously contaminated by Vatican II, as is certainly the case, then people wishing to keep the true Faith must be seriously warned to stay away from such officials lest their own faith be also contaminated. In other words, they must be told to “pull up the ladder.” And while, to those “seated on the chair of Moses” (Mt. XXIII, 2) is due all respect due to the chair of Moses, all the more to the See of Rome, and while to high Church officials is due all charity towards souls with a tremendous responsibility at their Particular Judgement, nevertheless the Catholic Faith comes first, so that neither the respect nor the charity can include my exposing my own soul or anyone else’s to contamination of our faith by imprudent contacts risking just such contamination. The Conciliarists in 2020 are still crusaders for the idolatry of man peddled by their wretched Council. Archbishop Lefebvre was right – pull up the ladder. Catholics and Conciliarists are in a war of religions, a war to the death.” Eleison Comments by His Excellency Bishop Richard Williamson, Number DCLXIX, May 9, 2020. Copyright 2011-2020.
OLHC Annual Parishioner Anointings have been scheduled for today after the 7:30 and 10:00 Masses. Please pay close attention to the pulpit announcement to assure you may qualify. There will be two lines formed, just like at Communion, and you will kneel at the altar rail. Each person anointed MUST, absolutely, complete the brief paperwork (name, date etc.). The pink Flower Donation envelope should have appeared in your packet today. Please enclose your donation and drop in the collection with your regular envelope. If you don’t have a packet, there are alternative envelopes on the Gift Shop counter. Sister Tadeo depends on your generosity to be able to buy flowers for the altar every week.
“When a society is perishing the wholesome advice to give to those who would restore it is to recall it to the principles from which it sprang.” Pope Leo XIII, “Rerum Novarum” May 15, 1891
