Fr. Bill's Corner:

Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time:
Scripture summary from the Ordo: “You have been saved by the grace of God in the person of Jesus Christ (2). Hence, do not fear those who can take away your mortal life (G), for the Lord will protect and defend you (1, Ps) unto life everlast-ing.”
Liturgy Notes:
This past Friday we celebrated the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heard of Jesus. The scriptures for that day reminded us that the Lord, who is gentle of heart, freed us from death. His love is everlasting and we should love one another as God loves us.
Friday was also the World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests. Please pray for us ‘active’ and ‘retired’.
Yesterday was the Solemnity of Saint John the Baptist. St Augustine found this date (near the summer solstice) appropriate for, after the birth of John, the daylight begins to grow shorter, whereas after Jesus’ birth, daylight begins to in-crease. As John said, ‘I must decrease and he must increase’.
Update on Health and ‘Retirement’!
As regards my health, I was notified on Tuesday evening that the biopsy on my right ribs was positive, so the cancer has spread from my forehead, to the right side of my face and neck, and now to my ribs. I still have to talk to the surgeon about the operation on the right side of my head and neck that is scheduled for Friday, July 7. In itself, the operation my not extend my life because the cancer has spread. Maybe they will try radiation. As of this writing, I am waiting to talk about more details and the prognosis with the surgeon. I know that many of you are praying for me. Please pray for my decision about the treatment and for my heal-ing. Thank you.
As regards my retirement, being near my kids and grandkids will be a positive aspect to this next step in my life. However, I truly will miss all of you because of your love, support, prayers, and help through these 10 years.
I am going to try to stay as active as a priest in the parish and at Domino Farms, as I can. Occasionally, I hope to get back to Holy Name of Mary Parish, as often as I can. I will continue to keep you all in my prayers especially at Mass.
Please welcome and support Fr. George as you have in the past. Steps are be-ing taken to help him communicate more clearly. You can have a major impact on him and on the parish with your support and prayers!
Building and Grounds Committee:
The open tasks are still in progress: Roof replacement will start soon; the repair of the Church steps and a future enclosure there are being evaluated by an architect; the work in the rectory kitchen is being evaluated; as regards the Church sanctuary, a liturgical consultant has visited, taken pictures, and is currently eval-uating what has to be done and the estimates for the new altar of repose and the additional chair (s) have been received and are a part of the sanctuary upgrade.
