341 Holy Hours were kept before the Blessed Sacrament his past week. We are
very grateful for a new adorer; Kayla Traxler. Our vacant hours are as follows:
Sunday 1-2pm, Monday 8-9am and Wednesday 10-11am, Sunday 1-2am and 2-
3am. We are still in need of a partner Friday 7-8am. Think about Jesus’
encounter with the Samaritan woman described in John 4. At the very beginning
of their conversation, Jesus told her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that
is saying to you, “Give me a drink” you would have asked, and he would have given you living
water.” (John 4:10) In a similar manner, Eucharistic Adoration is not about us giving Jesus a
drink by giving up our time to be with him as much as it is about our coming to Jesus and asking
him for a drink. It’s about presenting our needs to the Lord and asking him to fill us with
heavenly grace and heavenly power and heavenly wisdom. It’s about receiving all that we need
to live in him and for him in this world. When we come and meet him in adoration, he shows us-
--just as he showed the Samaritan woman---that he wants to be our Lord, our Savior, and our
friend. As our eyes are opened, we will take his advice and ask him for a drink of his living
water. And we will never be the same again. (From encountering Jesus in Eucharistic
Adoration) Choose a vacant hour or any hour and begin your journey. Call 330-690-9661.

Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Family relationships have primary importance in our lives. Jesus, however, reminds us of a
higher priority than family for each of us; the will of God. In today’s Gospel he even says “for
whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.” According to Mark’s Gospel,
Jesus had to overcome some of his own earthly family’s resistance to his calling. What about
us? Are our families open to God’s will for each member or must we, too, overcome family
