The following is from Fr. Bill Crowe’s Corner:

The Power of Love
Jesus gives us the command to love. The love of God is not just the human emotion – it is a way of life. The love of God is taking care of our neighbor especially those that can’t take care of themselves. Jesus gives us the ultimate example of this: Jesus suffered and died to free us from sin and so we could rediscover the Love that is God. Jesus reconnected us to the life-giving love of God. We could not do this by ourselves. We needed Jesus.

October is “Respect Life Month”. We are called to recognize in a special way that every human being is created in God’s image. We are called to recognize that human life is sacred from conception until natural death. This means that we need to be the voice of those who have no voice or cannot speak for themselves. The 25th chapter of the Gospel of Matthew tells us that we will be judged on how we treat our neighbor. We cannot just say that we are prolife. We need to BE prolife. We need to enlighten ourselves on the many bioethical issues of our times. St. John Paul II writes extensively on assisted suicide and other end of life issues as well as the death
penalty. Fr. Luke Dysinger, a monk at St Andrew’s Abbey writes on medical directives and other bioethical issues. He was a MD before he was ordained. Fr. Richard Benson, a Moral Theologian, writes on embryonic stem cell research and other “beginning of life” issues. We can then put this knowledge into action and live out the Great Commandment: Love God with your entire being and love your neighbor as yourself.

Prayer For Priestly Vocations
Prayed at the Ordination of Fr. Eben McDonald and Fr. Nabor Rios on June 3, 2012

Father, in every generation you provide ministers of Christ and the Church. We come before you now, asking that you call forth more men to serve our Archdiocese in the ministerial priesthood.
Give us priests who will lead and guide your holy people gathered by Word and Sacrament. Bless us with priestly vocations so that we can continue to be a truly Eucharistic Church, strengthened in our discipleship of Jesus Christ, your Only Son.
Raise up, we pray, men who are generous in their service, willing to offer their lives and all their gifts for your greater glory and for the good of your people.
We make our prayer in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, through Christ, Our Lord.
