FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
One of the joys of being a priest working in the Marriage, Family, and Life office of the diocese is the reality of caring for the great sacrament of marriage. It is true that there is an interrelatedness to all the sacraments. Marriage and the Eucharist are therefore linked as the sacrament of the nuptial love between Christ and the Church. The couple does not cause the bond between Christ and his Church, but participate in it. In the Sacrament of the Eucharist, the spouses encounter the Trinitarian foundation of the Nuptial Mystery also, as an intertwining of difference, self-gift, and fruitfulness.
Christ has left here in the Eucharistic action, the memorial of his total self gift so that the believer in his own freedom can opt for him. Thus the marital lives of couples take place within the context of life as a vocation to love and to holiness. Their marriage is thus strengthened by their worthy reception of the Eucharist.
We see this in Pope Benedict XVI’s Sacramentum Caritatis # 27 where he says, “The Eucharist inexhaustibly strengthens the indissoluble unity and love of every Christian marriage. By the power of the sacrament, the of Christ the Bridegroom and his Bride, the Church (cf. Eph 5:31-32). The mutual consent that husband and wife exchange in Christ, which establishes them as a community of life and love, also has a Eucharistic dimension. Indeed, in the theology of Saint Paul, conjugal love is a sacramental sign of Christ's love for his Church, a love culminating in the Cross, the expression of his "marriage" with humanity and at the same time the origin and heart of the Eucharist.”
As we approach the altar to receive Jesus, let us be conscious of the reality of this sacrament which strengthens our vocation to love in the concrete circumstances of our life. God bless you!
Fr. Anthony recently blessed the Shrine to the Relic of the True Cross of Jesus at St. Joseph in Chisholm. See the photo gallery.

I am a young woman who was dating a terrific young man. Things were going along really well for us when he broke up with me because he believed that he needed to enter seminary and discern whether or not God is calling him to be a priest. I want to support him, but I’m not sure how.
