MASS INTENTIONS FOR THE COMING WEEK:

|October||4||Sunday||9:30AM||† Members of the Stopek and Balog families, by Barbara Comiskey|
FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: The upcoming week may as well be called a week of angels. On Tuesday (9/29) we have the feast of the three Archangels (St. Michael, St. Gabriel, and St. Raphael) and on Friday (10/2) we will celebrate the memorial of our Guardian Angels. On this occasion, I would like to share the ten things to remember about them (taken and modified from http://www.peterkreeft.com/topics/angels.htm) God bless! Fr. Bona
1. They really exist. Not just in our minds, or our myths, or our symbols, or our culture. They are as real as your dog, or your sister, or electricity.
2. They are present, right here, right now, right next to you, reading and listening to these words with you.
3. They are not cute, cuddly, comfortable, chummy, or “cool”. They are fearsome and formidable. They are huge. They are warriors.
4. They are the real “extra-terrestrials”, the real “Super-men”, the ultimate aliens. Their powers are far beyond those of all fictional creatures.
5. They are more brilliant minds than Einstein.
6. They can literally move the heavens and the earth if God permits them.
7. Angels are aware of you, even though you can’t usually see or hear them. But you can communicate with them. You can talk to them without even speaking.
8. Angels often come disguised. “Do not neglect hospitality, for some have entertained angels unawares”—that’s a warning from life’s oldest and best instruction manual.
9. We are on a protected part of a great battlefield between angels and devils, extending to eternity.
10. Angels are sentinels standing at the crossroads where life meets death. They work especially at moments of crisis, at the brink of disaster—for bodies, for souls, and for nations.
