                each year after Easter the Bishop gathers all the priests actively 
                serving in our Diocese to the Annual Convocation. The featured 
                speaker this year, who will focus on our spiritual renewal as 
                we approach the climax of our Diocesan Spirit Alive renewal on 
                Pentecost, will be Father Ronald Rolheiser, OMI. As we begin the 
                month of St. Joseph this week I thought these comments from him 
                would be appropriate for inspiration and meditation. I am taking 
                them from the December 23, 2009 issue of North Country Catholic.<br>
                In his efforts to grapple with the difficult situation of finding 
                Mary &quot;with child&quot;, Father Rolheiser says:</span></p>
            </div>
            <blockquote>
              <div align="left" class="txt-black-large"><span class="subhead3">He shows how 
                a person can be a pious believer, deeply faithful to everything 
                within his religious tradition, and yet at the same time be open 
                to a mystery beyond both his human and religious understanding.</span></div>
            </blockquote>
            <div align="left" class="txt-black-large"> 
              <p class="txt-black-large"><span class="txt-black-sm"><br>
                So when God breaks into one's life in new, unimaginable ways we 
                can look to St. Joseph to guide us in how to respond. Again, he 
                says:</span></p>
            </div>
            <blockquote>
              <div align="left" class="txt-black-large"><span class="subhead3">In 
                essence what Joseph teaches us is how to live in loving fidelity 
                to all that we cling to humanly and religiously, even as we are 
                open to a mystery of God that takes us beyond all the categories 
                of our religious practice and imagination.</span></div>

                us as we try to live our faith in a world of surprises. St. Teresa 
                of Avila calls him &quot;our helper in every need&quot;.<br>
              </p>
              <p class="txt-black-sm">On Monday we thank St. David, king and Patron 
                of Wales for all the beautiful Welsh hymns that enhance our Liturgies. 
                Wednesday we give thanks for another American Saint . Katherine 
                Drexel . who gave of her own fortune to serve and provide for 
                the needs of America's poorest. </p>
              <p class="txt-black-sm">The Polish and Lithuanians rejoice in honoring 
                St. Casimir on the 4th. His favorite hymn was &quot;Daily, Daily, 
                Sing to Mary&quot;. We close off the week with the early martyrs 
                Felicitas and Perpetua who still inspire us in our quest for &quot;perpetual 
                felicity&quot; and St. Colette.</p>
