As you may have heard, there was a horrible train crash and derailment yesterday afternoon near Mendon, Missouri. Several young people from Our Lady of the Valley parish, along with their chaperones, were on that train returning from a mission trip to the Navajo reservation in New Mexico. Thankfully, none of them were killed in the accident, but several were injured, some seriously. We are still gathering specific information.

Please keep all of the passengers, and especially those from Our Lady of the Valley, in your prayers today. Please also ask for your parishioners’ prayers. Thank you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Dennis M. Schnurr
Archbishop of Cincinnati ... See MoreSee Less

Deacon’s Bench:
Never give up on prayer for the Lord does not ignore prayers. He evaluates them and gives us what is best for all involved. God sees the bigger picture of the past and the future and considers any consequences. Because of our free will, God will allow us bad decisions. The Lord has true love for us and will give us what is best even if that means suffering. We need faith to see and persistence to succeed.

Deacon’s Bench:
Thank the Lord every day for the things He does for us; many of which we have not asked but need. The Lord loves all of His creation and blesses us with good things. To follow Jesus, we need to love others as He did without prejudice. Perfect love is what God gives.

Deacon’s Bench:
Treat your enemies as if a sibling. Take care of the needs of others as you would your own for the Lord will multiple those things a hundred-fold in the future. It is better to have peace than property. It is important to protect the innocent from the greedy. Sometimes it may be a tough call to make. Recall Hitler and how he was destroying people strictly for greed and power. We had to go and fight against the injustice; we may still have to do this today in circumstances such as an invasion of neighbors.

Deacon’s Bench:
Respect and care for each other is the command the Lord expects us to follow. Even those who treat us unfairly need our care and respect. God gives the earth to everyone, including those who are against Him. We too must love and respect our enemies. We need not join them or support what they do, but as we go against what they do, we must be respectful as God is respectful of our will. We should respect the person not the actions.

Deacon’s Bench:
Elijah was outnumbered four hundred fifty to one by the prophets of Baal. They called on Baal and he called on our Lord. Baal did not respond, but our Lord did respond with fire that consumed the sacrifice. Elijah pronounced that our God is the true God. He also answers today when we call on Him in faith. We can depend on our God to be there for us, no matter what the odds. He will always answer our prayers in the way that is most beneficial for His church. Prayer within the faith is powerful. Remember how we always said, “save Russia” during our rosaries in the fifties, sixties, and seventies. The walls came down in the eighties. God listens.

Deacon’s Bench:
The church are those people who follow Christ. They preach His message by word and example. The message of Christ is fundamental to life here on earth. It is a message of love and respect that is unchanging. The means of communicating and implementing that message changes with the times. The Holy Spirit is there to guide us through these changes and allows us the confidence to spread the truth about Christ and our life, creation, and salvation. We will have faith in the truth Christ teaches.

Bear witness to Christ in whatever you do. Live as an example of Christian witness. Treat everyone with respect and follow the commandments Christ has taught in the Scriptures. God has given us what we need and the opportunities to spread His message. Each of us, different as we are, can reach different people and through our lives can spread the Gospel to all the world.

Deacon’s Bench:
We must have faith that God is there for us. We must trust that He has our best interest in mind. Jesus told His disciples, “A little while you will not see me, and again a little while you will see me.” They did not fully understand that He was talking about His Ascension to heaven and that they would see Him later in heaven. It is difficult for us too, because we are not privileged to know what will happen, but yet we do know if we trust Jesus’ message. With prayer He will give us peace of mind.

Deacon’s Bench:
The Holy Spirit is God and is here to guide and assist us in the spreading of the Word. Jesus ascended into heaven to send Him to us. Jesus is still present, but He gave the Holy Spirit reign over His church. God the father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit are always present and able to influence the church. They share authority in the best way possible. We pray to one and we pray to all three. God, the Trinity, has authority over all creation.

Deacon’s Bench:
Faith that God will save our souls for eternity and a profession of these truths are what Christ is expecting from His faithful. Faith in Christ is the backbone of our Catholic religion. This faith is reflected in our confidence in the presence of God in our lives. Through the recognition of His presence and love, peace blesses us and those around us. The Holy Spirit leads His church through trials and tribulation. These trials are what initiate changes which are necessary for our maturity in the knowledge of God’s plan. Faith and prayer help us to accomplish His work.
