Feast of St. Ursula
Greetings! I just had to run an errand and the temperatures outside made me want to sneak out for the day. Unfortunately, I have entirely too much work to do so I am not able to go play in the beautiful weather with the gorgeous trees and perfect temperatures. Thankfully, the work is good too and I have a window to the outside behind me and one across from me so that I can see the red and green leaves on a pretty little tree.
I was really blessed to attend the Catholic Radio Conference earlier this month. It was a very productive meeting of veteran, novice, and prospective Catholic radio station operators. There were great conferences that gave me some ideas for us to implement as well as wonderful stories of "miracles" from listeners around the country. We had a beautiful retreat day at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament to begin the conference with a tour of the new Pope St. John Paul II Eucharistic Center. It is a beautiful interactive building that takes the visitor through the Old and New Testament references to the Eucharist along with representations of miracles and writings pertaining to Our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
Can you believe it is already November? October almost flew past me without my realizing it. I'm still trying to write September on my papers and we are just about ready to turn the calendar to November. November is the month of the Poor Souls in Purgatory. We cannot be any more grateful to Our Lord for his loving care for us in providing the opportunity to purge ourselves of sin upon our death, granted I pray that I will be able to enter Heaven directly upon my death, but I fear I will still have some attachment to sin that I would like to have purified. Please remember to pray and make offerings for the Poor Souls in Purgatory.
As this is the November newsletter, it is time to begin thinking about the end of the year too. By this time next month most of us will be busy making our preparations for Advent and Christmas. If you make end of year donations, please consider Covenant Network as a beneficiary, we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we appreciate and need donations or gifts of all sizes.
May God bless you! Have a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving!Sincerely in Christ,
