Reflection – Blind to the usual

One night a few years ago there was a total eclipse of the moon.  Everybody was talking about it.  Many stayed up till the small hours in the hope of witnessing it.  I asked myself:
‘Why all this interest in the moon, simply because it is disappearing?’
I was convinced that most of those people wouldn’t see a full moon in the sky, much less stop to admire it. I brought to mind the words of Emerson:
‘The fool wonders at the unusual; the wise
person wonders at the usual.’

Holy Name St. Vincent de Paul Society

When we think of the society of St. Vincent de Paul we think of the poor box as a tradition of service and charity to the needy. It is unfortunate that in early February Holy Name’s poor box was stolen.  It is hard to understand why someone would take from the poor of the community, they must truly be desperate to do this.
We plan to look for a more permanent affixed poor box but in the mean time we ask for volunteers.  Our membership in Holy Name’s St. Vincent de Paul is limited and we are not always able to support the ministry of collecting for the poor after weekend Masses.  We are looking for volunteers to stand by and collect money, then make sure it is safely put away out of sight.  It is a not huge commitment, but a very much needed one.

If you think you could help out please call Paul Sabyan at 647-964-2453.  Thank you for             considering supporting our very worthwhile activities.
