During the summer months we encourage the youth – and others – of our parish to submit their art work, poetry, etc. for publication on our parish blog.

Some ideas for poetry might include poems entitled:

  1. Why?  where each line might include something you have wondered about
  2. Me where you might describe who you are, what you think God’s plan is for you, and some things you really like, things you do, things you read, things you need, things you see, things you fear, things you dream, etc.
  3. What if …?
  4. The third eye  – what does it see and notice that is ordinarily missed?
  5. I know I’m dreaming but wouldn’t it be great if …
  6. This morning …  – what was each member of your family doing as they got ready for the day?

We welcome Holly Marie as she enters the faith of the Church through baptism, here in the arms of her mother.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) in paragraph 1282 says “Since the earliest times, Baptism has been administered to children, for it is a grace and a gift of God that does not presuppose any human merit; children are baptized in the faith of the Church.  Entry into Christian life gives access to true freedom.”

When I went to the University of Minnesota many years ago, I got advice from two people: the first was the priest who taught the release-time religion classes to the Catholic students at our high school, the second was an aunt who had a successful career before many women did.
 
The priest said that I should do things at the Newman Center since I would not be going to a Catholic University.  My aunt gave me two pieces of advice: first was to study a map of the University so I would always know where I was and where I was going – good advice literally and figuratively.  The second was not to fritter away the little, miscellaneous chunks of time that inevitably creep into one’s schedule.
 
I combined the advice of my aunt and the priest in a rather special way:  every Friday afternoon, when the push for doing class work was absent and it was tempting to goof off in some way, I would go to the Newman Center library, take some book about our faith off a shelf, a book that caught my eye for whatever reason, and spend a couple of hours reading. 

I strongly advise the graduates to make time for their faith, use those miscellaneous time chunks and regularly scheduled time chunks to further their knowledge of their faith – an adult knowledge of their faith!

Editor’s note:  Our church library  is now in the chapel which makes it available whenever the chapel is open.

I remember what one of our pediatricians that I worked for recommended. He said college students should eat right and get plenty of sleep and the rest will fall in place.
