OUR PARISH FEAST DAY

 

 

 

 

 

St. Pius X, August 21

Giuseppe Sarto was born in 1835 in the small village of Riese, Italy. He was ordained in 1858 and served God’s people as a curate (nine years), pastor (eight years), Spiritual Director of the diocesan seminary (nine years), bishop (nine years), cardinal (eight years) and pope (eleven years.) During his pontificate, Pius X confronted, challenged and inspired many critical issues facing the Church. He is referred to as the “Pope of the Eucharist” because he encouraged frequent and fervent reception of communion for all Catholics, especially children who had reached seven years of age. He established and promoted the practice of looking at the elevated Host while interiorly praying the words of St. Thomas, “My Lord and My God.” He reformed the liturgy and Gregorian chant. Pius X took as his papal motto, the passage from Paul, “To restore all things in Christ, that Christ might be all and in all.” He died in 1914 and was canonized in 1954. His will read, “I was born poor; I lived poor; I wish to die poor.”

Having interesting discussions over the last few days. It's been difficult, to say the least. I'm finding myself defending the in- defensible, yet I'm hearing nothing from the diocese, the same diocese who turned me away when Bishop Lori was there. We're at a crossroads, imo. Fr. Sam is brilliant, as always!

An exciting bible study is coming to St. Pius X this Fall! You don't want to miss it!

St. Pius X Catholic Church

Friends, today we celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In her great “Magnificat,” Mary is the new Isaiah and the new Jeremiah and the new Ezekiel, for she announces with greatest clarity and joy the coming of the Messiah.

What was only vaguely foreseen in those great prophetic figures is now in clear focus: “He has shown the strength of his arm; he has scattered the proud in their conceit; he has filled the hungry with good things and the rich he has sent away empty. He has come to the help of his servant Israel, for he has remembered his promise of mercy, the promise he made to our fathers, to Abraham and his children forever.” There is nothing stronger or more beautiful in any of the prophets.

Mary is the true Israel, and she knows what to do and how to do it with enthusiasm. No dawdling, backpedaling, straying, or complaining: she moves, she goes. And she goes upon the heights (the “hill country” that Luke describes), which is exactly where God had always summoned Israel, so that it could be a light to the nations.
