Those living in closer proximity please be here early; Confessions begin at 8:00 a.m. Of course, and I think that it goes without saying, that those who live in close proximity to the church, should come for confessions on Saturday morning if at all possible.

Church Support
Ordinarily, a particular diocese will have annually a general diocesan collection to support their seminary and another to maintain a regular building program. The central office of a diocese is called a chancery office. At this office all the offi-cial records of the diocese are preserved and all the general paper-work for the whole diocese put into proper channels and processed.
As the official office of the Bishop, the decisions of the chancery office naturally reflect the mind of the Bishop. Diocesan statutes, made known and interpreted by the chancery office, will specify the offerings ordinarily expected for Masses (Mass stipends) and a few spiritual mini-strations (stole fees), for the salaries of pastors, assistant priests, and religious teachers. As offerings and salaries vary in different dioceses, definite information on such matters can be obtained from the diocesan chancery office.
Stole fees or free will offerings made by the faithful on the occasion of baptisms, marriages and funerals are a special dis-charge of part of the layman's general duty of supporting his pastor. Stole fees consti-tute part of the general support of a parish. Such offerings are ordinarily determined and regulated by diocesan statute; there-fore, one in doubt about such offerings should either consult a priest of the diocese or the diocesan chancery office. A pastor may not refuse his free service to persons who are unable to make such offerings.
Stole fees and Mass stipends are not payments for spiritual functions. Spiritual things cannot be sold. Can a man sell his heart and remain alive? Can we traffic with the things of God and expect the Source of all grace to bestow His bles-sings? There may have been some attempts in this regard in the past, but it is foolish to think that those concerned were able to take advantage of God.
Stole fees and Mass stipends began in ancient times as voluntary offerings for the support of religion. In the course of centuries, these offerings became so sanc-tioned by custom or by particular law that they are now obligatory when one's means permit.
"It Shall Be Measured"
"Give to the most High according to what he hath given to thee, and with a good eye do according to the ability of thy hands: For the Lord maketh recompense, and will give thee seven times as much" (Sir. 35:12-13). Thus spoke God in the Old Law. What says He in the New? "Give, and it shall be given to you; good mea-sure, pressed down, shaken together, run-ning over, shall they pour into your lap. For with what measure you measure, it shall be measured to you" (Luke 6:38). If every member of the Church followed these divine directives, no pastor would find it necessary to preach about money or lie awake nights attempting to find ways of meeting parish responsibilities. There exists an old proverb which contains much food for thought: "The only thing a dead man holds in his hands are the things he has given to God."

 

MARRIAGE - a Sacred Vocation
The essence of the marriage contract and the sacrament it may form is found in the expression of mutual consent. "Adam, will you take Eve for your lawful wife." "I will." A similar question is asked of Eve, and she too answers, "I will." They are now man and wife, for the rest of their lives. Because marriage is a contract and, between the baptized a sacrament, both the State and the Church have a right and obligation to legislate concerning its administration and reception.
"But from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female. For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother; and shall cleave to his wife. And they two shall be in one flesh. Therefore they are not two, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder" (Mark 10: 6-9). Mar-riage is the religious and legal bond uniting husband and wife for the begetting and rearing of offspring, for mutual help and assistance, and, after the fall of our first parents, for the regulation of the sexual instinct in accordance with the dictates of reason.

 

************************

1. The question is, what exactly does it mean, to dress modestly?
2. What does the Catholic Church say on the matter?

On January 12, 1930, the sacred Congregation of the Council, by mandate of Pope Pius XI, has issued emphatic instructions on modesty of dress to all bishops, directing them to insist on these prescriptions:
"We recall that a dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows, and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knee. Furthermore, dresses of transparent material are improper.

Women must be decently dressed, especially when they go to church. The parish priest may, with due prudence, refuse them entrance to the church and access to the reception of the Sacraments, [each] and every time that they come to church immodestly dressed." (General Pastoral Directive, 1915 A.D.)

"Girls and women dressed immodestly are to be debarred from Holy Communion and from acting as sponsors at the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation; further, if the offense be extreme, they may even be forbidden to enter the church." [Decree of the Congregation of the Council, 1930 A.D.]
