SAINT PASCAL PARISHPage 2OF COWARDS AND HEROESLast week, our country endured yet another terrorist attack. This one took place at the Boston Marathon, an internationalevent of celebration. It represents hard work, perseverance and community. That celebration was wrecked when explosionsbrought death, injury and fear. As I write this, two brothers are accused of perpetrating this cowardly act. One is dead, theother is too seriously injured to talk. Whatever their reasons may have been, there is no justification for killing innocent people.Stories have emerged of those heroes who first responded to the chaos. They were police, fire and medical personnel.Some were just people there who lent a hand.I spoke to a former parishioner of Saint Pascal. He is a runner and he has participated in past Boston marathons. I calledhim to make sure he was all right. He told me he did not run, but if he had, his usual running time would have put him at thefinish line approximately when the explosions occurred and his wife probably would have been right at that spot.I was away the week of these events. Part of my time away was in Portland, Oregon, to celebrate the ninetieth birthday of adear friend. He is the father of a deceased friend of mine and I have kept in touch with the family for many years. The mancelebrating his birthday is a person of great faith, personal character and integrity. He is my kind of man, a man I would hopeto be, a hero to his sons and many friends.At the celebration, I met Marcus Ugarte, another hero. Marcus is a 15 year old high school freshman who rescued a boy froma burning house earlier this month. He has been featured in People Magazine and Good Morning America. He has receivedthe Service Before Self Congressional Medal of Honor. He constantly says that he did nothing no one else would do. Maybehe gives the rest of us a little more credit than we are due. We would all hope we would react as he did but maybe not. Andthat’s why he is a hero. And that’s why, even in the face of vicious acts like in Boston, we still can hope that human nature isstill touched with The Divine.Thursdays, Doors open at 5pmGames start at 7pm

SAINT PASCAL PARISHPage 4SOCIETY OF ST. VINCENT DE PAULSAINT PASCAL CONFERENCEThe gospels tell us over and over in manyways that love means self-sacrifice. Thinkabout it.As loving parents we sacrifice much for our children; ashusbands and wives we know that love demands selfsacrifice;we easily respond to others’ tragedies with gifts ofmoney and service; we reach out to a perfect stranger onthe street who is in need. We do this because we know Jesusloves us and we share in His mission of being advocatesto the most needy among us. It’s not enough to feelsomeone else’s pain. We should react as Christ did in Histime on earth, because we must be responsive disciples toHis command that we love one another.Next weekend we will collect non-perishablefood for our parish pantry. Please bring atleast one item of non-perishable food to theMass you attend. The persons and familieswho receive it will be most grateful for yourrecognizing their great need.Instrumentalists, pianists, flautists,violinists, and more: we need your talentsat St. Pascal!
