3 our statues have arrived! The last three of our Church statues have arrived: St. Jude, St. Rose of Lima and the Holy Child of Prague! Learn more about the Holy Child of Prague here: Holy Child of Prague from Devotion to the Holy Child Jesus is a longstanding tradition in our Catholic spirituality. The early Church Fathers, like St. Athanasius and St. Jerome, had a special devotion to the Holy Child Jesus. Some of the later great saints, including St. Bernard of Clairvaux, St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus (the Little Flower), St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua and St. Teresa of Avila, helped popularize this devotion to the Holy Child. (As an aside, St. Teresa of Avila traveled with her statue of the Holy Child when she visited other convents.) In the 1300s, sculptures of the Holy Child usually made of wax or wood also grew in popularity. Keep in mind that even though the Gospels do not relate much information regarding our Lord s childhood, the hidden life at Nazareth allows everyone to enter into fellowship with Jesus by the most ordinary events of daily life (Catechism, No. 533). The devotion to the Infant of Prague originated in the mid-1500s. In 1556, Maria Manriquez de Lara of Spain married a Czech nobleman named Vratislav Perstyn. She brought with her the statue of the Holy Child (which would become the Infant of Prague sculpture), standing about 18 inches in height. (Another tradition holds that the statue came from a monastery in Bohemia and was obtained by Dona Isabella Manriquez who presented it as a wedding gift to her daughter, Marie Manriquez, and son-in-law, Vratislav Perstyn.) In 1587, Maria then presented the statue as a wedding gift to her daughter, Princess Polyxena Lobkowitz. In 1628, Princess Polyxena gave the statue to the Discalced Carmelites at the Church of the Virgin Mary the Victorious in Prague. She said, I am giving you what I most esteem of my possessions. Keep the sculpture in reverence and you will be well off. In 1631, Swedish troops invaded Prague, and ravaged the Catholic churches. The Carmelites were forced to flee the Church of the Virgin Mary the Victorious. The Swedish troops desecrated the church, damaged the high altar, and cast the statue into a pile of rubble, breaking its arms and fingers. In 1638, the Carmelites were able to return to Prague and to their Church of the Virgin Mary the Victorious. Although they were impoverished, they remembered the words of Princess Polyxena. Father Cyril found the statue of the Holy Child buried in the ruins of the church. He cleaned the statue and placed it in their oratory for veneration. One day, while he was praying before the statue, he heard the Holy Child Jesus say, Have pity on Me, and I will have pity on you. Give Me hands, and I will give you peace. The more you honor Me, the more I will bless you. Father Cyril knew that he had to find a way to repair the Infant s hands, but he and his religious brothers had neither the skills nor the financial means to do so. Therefore, Father Cyril implored the help of the Blessed Mother to come to the aid of her divine Son. Once again, when Father Cyril was praying before the image, the Holy Child spoke to him: Place Me near the entrance of the sacristy and you will receive aid. Father Cyril immediately complied. In just a few days, a man came to the sacristy after Mass to offer help. His donations paid for the repair of the statue. Moreover, the monastery would never face poverty again.

You have everything to fear from yourselves, but everything to hope from God. -SES from father pacheco It is hard to believe we are already in October. Time seems to fly away so rapidly; before we know it, it will be Thanksgiving, then Christmas and then we will be wrapping another year! I hope we are making the necessary changes in our lives to be closer to Jesus by eradicating habitual sin, meditating the Word of God, celebrating the Sacraments (Mass and Reconciliation) and sharing our time, talent and treasure. The second collection this weekend is for Respect Life Ministry, to help change our culture of death into a culture of life, promoting respect for all life from natural conception to natural death.

Saturday, Oct 20th at St. Williams a morning for catholic women A Morning for Catholic Women: On Saturday, October 20th, at St. William parish in, the Venice Diocesan Council of Catholic Women is sponsoring a FREE morning to get together with other Catholic Women from the Naples area to learn and share. The topics of the morning are: Catholic women are not called to be Catholic in one specific area. We will look at the big picture and how we fit in; Pope Francis wrote The Joy of the Gospel. We will address one of the chapters and discuss his message to the Church and its people. He suggests out of the box thinking as the Church moves forward. We will do some brainstorming. Come and meet other women from the area and learn some skills to work together with all people, even the difficult ones, in a Christian way. (Dealing with Difficult People). There will be separate training for CCW officers. To register call Elaine Wade, (239) or Ellen Bachman ( ) Registration and continental breakfast is at 8:30 the sessions are from 9:00 to Noon.

5 watch mass on television! Televised Mass for the Homebound - For those who are unable to attend Mass due to medical or physical limitations, the Diocese of Venice offers a televised Mass each Sunday. For viewers in the northern portions of the Diocese, the Mass airs at 9:30 a.m. on the CW Network; and for those in the southern portions of the Diocese, the Mass airs at 10:30 a.m., on WFTX-TV (FOX-4). Check your local listings for channel information. Leaflet missals are available by contacting Gail Ardy at , or Prayer Requests sacraments Marriages Arrangements must be made six months in advance by calling the Parish Office. Baptisms Please call the Parish Office for further information. We are here to pray for you 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Please calll ext the catholic faith appeal Goal Pledged Collected Statistically, roughly 50% of all marriages will end in divorce, and many more live in disillusionment or misery for the sake of staying married. Many married couples resign themselves to the belief that this is all there is, so they just live with it or end the marriage. But the truth is that the romantic love a couple once shared the love that brought you to make those vows in the first place, can be found again, and even last the rest of your lives. Many couples even discover a deeper love than they ever shared together. There is Help & Hope In 1 Corinthians 13:13 Jesus tells us the greatest of these is Love. Living in a marriage that is missing love can be painful and miserable. If you have given up hope that your marriage can and will get better, ask your spouse to consider attending a Retrouvaille program. Retrouvaille is an international Christian-based ministry that offers a program to help couples improve their marriages and rediscover the love they once shared, no matter how bad it may be even for separated and divorced couples. It is NOT a quick fix like many marriage retreats. It is an eight-week program that begins with a weekend retreat, followed by seven weekly four-hour follow-up sessions. Finally, an on-going monthly small group of couples gather for support and growth. It is not counseling or group therapy, and you will not share your struggles with others. If improving your marriage, building trust and forgiveness, and rediscovering the romantic love you once shared is important to you, reach out today for more information. Our Next Program begins on Oct 19, in Tampa Bay For more information, or to register, visit us at or call (813) All contacts and names held in strictest confidence. $204,000 $226,678 $214,909 With joy and gratitude, we thank everyone who has committed to our CFA! visit the friary gift store For your religious needs and special occasions, come shop at The Friary gift store.

ORACION POR LOS SACERDOTES Oh Jesús, rezo por Tus fieles y fervientes sacerdotes; por tus sacerdotes infieles y tibios; por tus sacerdotes que trabajan en casa o en el extranjero o en campos misioneros lejanos; por Tus sacerdotes tentados; por tus solitarios y desolados sacerdotes; por tus sacerdotes jóvenes; por tus sacerdotes moribundos; por las almas de Tus sacerdotes en el purgatorio. Pero sobre todo, te encomiendo a los sacerdotes más queridos para mí; el sacerdote que me bautizó; los sacerdotes que me absolvieron de mis pecados: los sacerdotes en cuyas Misas asistí y que me dieron Tu Cuerpo y Sangre en la Sagrada Comunión; los sacerdotes que me enseñaron y me instruyeron; todos los sacerdotes a quienes estoy endeudado de cualquier otra manera. Oh Jesús, mantenlos cerca de Tu corazón, y bendícelos abundantemente en el tiempo y en la eternidad. Amen.

Resaltaré solo uno: el misterio esencial de la cruz es que da lugar a un cierto tipo de soledad, una incapacidad para ver claramente cómo se desarrollan las cosas, una incapacidad para ver que, en última instancia, todas las cosas funcionarán para nuestro bien, y que, de hecho, no estamos solos.

8 Page 8 St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church diocesan events Diocesan Stewardship Day - Since the beginnings of the Church, Christians have embraced stewardship as a way of life. It was a fundamental aspect of discipleship and remains a powerful process by which God converts the minds and hearts of His children. When fully embraced, stewardship can transform individuals, Parishes, and even an entire Diocese. In order to reach out to the Faithful on the importance of stewardship in the Christian life, the Diocesan Office of Stewardship and Development will be hosting a Stewardship Day on October 3, 2018 at Our Lady of Light Parish in Fort Myers. This event will assist in sharing the principles of ownership, responsibility, accountability and the rewards of stewardship. Witnessing Faith with Bishop Dewane - Join Most Reverend Frank J. Dewane, Bishop of the Diocese of Venice, for his monthly radio program on Relevant Radio. Listen anywhere online at The program will continue to air on the last Friday of each month. World Youth Day Pilgrimage: Panama The Diocese of Venice has opened registration for the 2019 international pilgrimage to World Youth Day in Panama with Pope Francis! This trip will take place from January 19 to January 28, For questions and to reserve your group please contact Joshua Mazrin at You have everything to fear from yourselves, but everything to hope from God. -SES is it time to become Catholic? Maybe you are getting married, your spouse is Catholic, other members of the family are Catholic, you want to receive Holy Communion, or you want to find out about the Catholic faith. Regardless of the reason, St. Elizabeth Seton parish offers the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program to help you explore your faith, learn about Catholicism, and inquire whether it may be right for you. You will join others who are sharing the same experience. During this program, you will be baptized (if necessary), receive confirmation into the Church, and receive Holy Communion. The program is beginning at this time. For further information or to register, call St. Elizabeth s Faith Formation department at respecting life: a perfect gift Read the full version at Soon after the birth of my son Charlie,* who has Down syndrome, a visitor asked whether he was mild, moderate, or severe referring to his level of cognitive impairment. I was shocked. In my arms I held a beautiful baby boy, who defied easy categorization. It s like looking at stained glass from the outside: the colors look dark and you can t see the figures. But inside, with the sun shining through, the effect can be brilliant. From inside our family, love illuminates our life with Charlie. What may seem dreary to others, perhaps even unbearable, is actually filled with beauty and color. Our love has nothing to do with his abilities. We love him simply because of who he is, and understanding this teaches us a fundamental truth: every life is a good and perfect gift.
