Augustine Church, Barberton, OH) (February 19, 2012)

Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Am I immobilized by guilt for my own sin? Am I paralyzed by fear, hurt or anger due to a sin committed against me? Seek the healing of the Sacrament of Reconciliation or the advice of a priest or counselor. Allow the Lord to heal you through others. (Insert graphic 1106-0086)
360 Holy Hours were kept before the Blessed Sacrament this past week. During Eucharistic Adoration, we "watch and wait", we remain "silent" in his Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the worshiping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be! Like a magnet the Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us. The following hours are in desperate need of an adorer, Saturday 7-8 pm, 8-9pm. and Sunday morning from 1-2 am. Please contact Judy Soltis at 330-212-0926 if you are able to help out. (Insert Graphic 2404-0106.tif)

drives, nor the amount of money one has in the bank that counts. These mean nothing. It is simply service that measures success. George Washington Carver
