06/05 - Marian Pilgrimage stopping at SMOY Monday
Beloved in Christ,
Please beware: I will not email you or text you and ask you to purchase gift cards of any kind. Scammers have been making fake email addresses and attaching my name to them asking people for such things. When they create these fake email addresses, they can use any name they want as the display name attached to their fraudulent emails: Pope Francis, Jesus Christ, mine, etc. Then they comb our bulletin, website and all links to our website looking for email addresses of parishioners to scam. Moreover, you will notice that none of these fake email addresses are “@smoy.org” Feel free to call me 513-697-3101 or Jacilyn at the office 513-697-3109 to verify if an email is coming from me. Also, feel free to call the police to report the fraud. What the scammers are doing is illegal. May the Lord Jesus touch their hearts and bring them to repentance!
For decades, the Hyde Amendment has kept our tax dollars from paying to kill unborn children. However, because of the agenda of pro-abortion politicians in power now, the Hyde Amendment is going away, thus opening the door for our tax dollars to be used to pay for abortions. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has provided us with these links where we can learn more about it and take action to protect the Hyde Amendment. Check it out here:
I hope to see you at the Eucharistic Procession and reception after the noon Mass tomorrow.
Thanks for your prayers. Be assured of my daily prayers for you.

The Feast of Corpus Christi
Christianity has always been the religion of little people and little things. Or, better stated, it is the religion of things which seem small and insignificant, but are actually grand and vital. Jesus announces that the disciple who gives even just a cup of cold water to a child “will surely not lose his reward” (Matthew 10:42). Similarly, Christ declares that the poor widow who put only two small coins into the temple treasury “put in more than all the other contributors” (Mark 12:43). This theme permeates the Gospels; the little things that men scoff at are often the things of God. With this in mind, it is fitting that Jesus Christ, in profound meekness, makes Himself really present to us in the sacrament of the Eucharist. The non-believer sees only a small piece of bread and a sip of wine, not even enough to content the stomach. The Catholic faithful, however, know this sacrament to be the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of our Lord, Jesus Christ; and He is enough to content the soul for all eternity. The feast of Corpus Christi is the celebration of Christ’s true presence in the Holy Eucharist.
How to Live Corpus Christi
If you doubt that the Eucharist is truly the body of Christ, then celebrating the great feast of Corpus Christi can open the eyes of your heart. Dr. Sri explains the significance and history of the feast of Corpus Christi, and offers us four practical ways to celebrate it with true devotion.
