THE QUEENSHIP OF MARY - AUGUST 22 MaryThis feast, established in 1954 by Pope Pius XII is a logical follow-up to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. As in all the mysteries of Mary's life, Mary is closely associated with Jesus. Her queenship, therefore, is a share in Jesus' kingship. Pope Pius XII points out that Mary deserves this title because she is the Mother of God, because she is closely associated as the new Eve with Jesus; redemptive work, because of preeminent perfection and because of her intercessory power. Our Almighty Father has given us the mother of his only begotten Son to be our queen and our mother. Mary, Queen of Heaven, pray for us.

ST. ROCCO FEAST DAY & BLESSING OF DOGS Father David, Pastor of St. Peter of the Fields Church, 3467 Old Forge Road, Rootstown invites all parishioners and dog lovers to a blessing of Dogs on the Feast of St. Rocco, Thursday, August 16th at 7:00 pm in the St. Peter of the Fields Courtyard, (between the two churches--rain or shine.) St. Rocco lived in the 14th Century and tended to victims of the plague. He was known for his miraculous healings. Becoming a victim himself, he went into the woods to recover. A dog would bring him bread for feed him. He died on August 16, 1327. He was canonized by popular acclamation. We will say a prayer in honor of St. Rocco, and all dogs will receive a special blessing.

VOCATIONS "Amen, Amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood you have no life in you."

Is Christ calling you to give life to others by bringing his Body and Blood to the world as a priest, deacon or in the consecrated life? To explore His calling, contact Father Christopher Luoni at 330-744- 8451, or email him at: cluoni@youngstowndiocese.org.

Stewardship Thought
August 19, 2018 - "Watch carefully then how you live, not as foolish persons but as wise...."  -- Ephesians 5:15

A wise person recognizes that all we have and all we are comes from God. A wise person thanks God continually throughout the day for all His many blessings. A wise person realizes that God has blessed us for a reason and that He wants us to help Him build His kingdom of earth.
