LIFELINES It cannot be taken for granted that human life in itself is a gift. Can it really be a beautiful gift? Do we know what will befall man in the dark days ahead — or in the brighter days that could come? Can we foresee to what troubles, what terrible events he might be exposed? … It is a problematic gift, if it is left to itself. Biological life is in itself a gift, but it is surrounded by a great question. It becomes a true gift only if, along with it, we are given a promise that is stronger than any evil that could threaten us, if it is immersed in a power that ensures that it is good to be human, that there will be good for this person no matter what the future brings. Thus, with birth is associated rebirth, the certitude that, truly, it is good to be alive, because the promise is stronger than evil. ~ Pope Benedict XVI, Homily, Mass on the Occasion of the Holy Father’s 85th Birthday, April 16, 2012

PONTIFICAL MISSION SOCIETIES IN THE U.S.—LOCAL NEWS For the past (19) years the Scranton office of the Pontifical Mission Societies in the U.S. has been sponsoring faith-based mission experiences for groups of high school students, seminarians and adult chaperones. The purpose of these missions is to provide students and their chaperones with an opportunity to experience life among the poor, gain a greater understanding of their Catholic/Christian faith and other cultures, as well as a better perspective on their own lives when they return home. This summer, from July 10-21, our group of high school Juniors and their chaperones will be touching the lives of the poor in the Archdiocese of Castries in St. Lucia, West Indies. Some of their activities will include after-school activities for children and work at a soup kitchen run by Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity Sisters, feeding centers and shelter for the homeless, an orphanage for children, and a home for the elderly. After the group returns home, the students will look for opportunities to share the experience at their schools, in their local communities and churches before going on to college. The cost for each person in the group is $ 1,500.00, which includes airline tickets, transportation to and from the airports and at the mission sites, lodging and meals for the two weeks. Participants in the group would be most appreciative of any help you might be able to give towards these expenses, and/or donations for the above-mentioned mission sites. Any cash donations earmarked for the mission sites will be distributed to the places of greatest need in the area being served. Thank you for whatever support you are able to give MAKAYLA DEARBORN, member of St. Brigid Parish, who will be a member of this group. Donations can be given directly to Makayla or placed in the collection basket in a marked envelope.
