Everyday Spirituality by Sr. Kathy Once again this week we hear of Jesus being present to the apostles and greeting them by saying, Peace be with you. Most of us, if asked to define the word peace, find our first response being along the lines of the absence of war or conflict which highlights what peace is not. So what is peace? The Hebrew roots (Shalom) speaks of completeness, soundness, welfare, safety or prosperity. For prayer this week, why not place yourself in the shoes of one of the early apostles. Imagine yourself in these post-resurrection days. As you are walking along one afternoon, you suddenly become aware of Jesus presence. He says to you, Peace be with you! How is your heart or spirit changed as you hear these words? What does this greeting of peace mean to you? What would it mean to you to hear Jesus says these words to you today? Elementary Easter Project The Service Project for the Level 4 students for April was making Easter Baskets for 25 youngsters at Turning Point. Students donated candy, books, games and stuffed animals to fill the baskets and wrapped the baskets themselves. Not only did they enjoy creating the baskets but were also very excited about doing something for someone else to make Easter morning bright for these young people. On behalf of Turning Point, a big thank you to all the students and parents for their participation in this worthwhile project.

3 Page 3 Pen Point Parking for Weekend Liturgies I would like to call everyone s attention to the importance of parking in our parking lots for the weekend liturgies. Some members of the community have been parking at the Mount Clemens Orthopaedic Appliances, INC store across from the Crocker Blvd entrance and this has caused some problems for customers who come to the store, leaving them unable to find parking. I ask that everyone refrain from parking in their parking lot and those of other businesses on Crocker. It is my understanding that non-customers can be ticketed and/or have their cars towed away. I certainly do not want this happening to anyone. I think we have adequate parking facilities for the community. Thank you for your attention and respectful response to this matter.

4 Page 4 Cover the Uninsured Forty six million Americans are uninsured. Nearly nine million of them are children. More than 8 out of 10 are in working families. The percentage of the non elderly population that is uninsured has climbed steadily from 15.9 % in 1994 to 17.1 % in 2007 with a slight dip to 15.6 % around the turn of the century. Living without health insurance is a risk no one should have to take. Cover the Uninsured, a project of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, now in its 7 th year, is a national effort to highlight the fact that too many Americans are living without health insurance and to seek solutions from our nation s leaders. Reaching the goal of affordable and stable health care will require changes in public policy. Cover the Uninsured week activities are an effort to raise awareness among policy makers, health care professionals, grassroots advocates, faith leaders, the business community and active citizens. Concern about access to affordable health coverage is high among American voters. Last year, congress demonstrated unprecedented bi-partisan support for an expansion of the State Children s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) to cover more of America s kids. Cover the Uninsured Week 2008 took place April 27 th - May 3 rd with thousands of activities across the country. Nearly 1500 events took place in 44 states and Washington D.C., more than 800 events provided enrollment opportunities for eligible families, more than 200 national organizations supported the campaign. To find out more about this effort visit: covertheuninsured.org. Extending health insurance coverage to all citizens will require evolving the American Health Care System in ways never seen before. The effort continues year round to assist activists around the country working to demonstrate broad support for getting uninsured Americans the health coverage they need. The Michigan Department of Community Health has launched a website providing information on where to find free or low cost health care. The site links to free clinics, mental health services, dental care, prescription drug programs, cancer screening and treatment, help with Medicaid enrollment and more. To search for health care resources, go online to: Yours in Christ Parish Nurses Dear Fr. Larry Pettke, St. Valerie of Ravenna, Italy, the wife of St. Vitalis, lived in the Second Centry AD. She was martyred near Milan when she refused to deny her faith in Christ. It is speculated that she is the mother of Sts. Gervase and Protase. On behalf of the men and women religious who benefit from the Retirement Fund for Religious, I want to thank you for your generous response to the 2008 appeal. In spite of all of the financial challenges facing so many of us, the response to the appeal in the Archdiocese was $758,945.00! Please express our gratitude to the people of St. Louis Parish. Your contribution of $5, was a vital part of making this appeal such a success. The religious who have provided for the needs of the Church so whole-heartedly for fifty, sixty and seventy years are now retired (or retiring). Now they find themselves in need of your support. Your continuing response through the years bears testimony that you have not forgotten them. They are remembered. Know that you, in turn are remembered in the prayers and good works of those retired religious who benefit from your gift. May our loving God multiply back to you in the measure of your giving, and even more, as we are told in the Scriptures "...pressed down and running over." Expect many blessings!

Often they are about power. Does the spouse who earns more have the most say in how money is spent? What burden might your spouse be carrying today--a worry, a health concern? Maybe there's a way to lighten it; recognizing it and sympathizing might be enough. For daily marriage tips visit: w w w. F o r Y o u r M a r r i a g e. o r g.

Larry Fr. Larry Fr. Larry Altar Servers Christopher McNeely Emily Tabor Aubrey Schihl Allie Matuzak Adam Schihl It had been an especially trying day. He had been out of work for over six months, and despite many interviews, he had not been offered any positions. He thought he had qualifications for the positions he had applied, what with a college degree and many years' experience in his field. Still, he continued to be turned down, often with no explanation whatsoever. Depressed, he turned to a particularly good book and read the words of a reassuring friend: "Peace be with you." That afternoon, he received a call from an employer. Today's Gospel reading is Luke's version of last week's reading from John. Two men have just visited the disciples and told of their encounter with the risen Jesus on their way to Emmaus. Excitedly, they recalled how they did not recognize him, but felt a burning in their hearts as they walked along and listened to him speak. Not until he broke the bread at dinner did they understand in whose presence they were. And as they told their story, Jesus appeared to them all in the room, startling them with his presence so they were unable to recognize him. "Peace be with you," he tells them. At times in our lives, we are hidden behind locked doors, fearful of the world and what it may have to offer us, or even what it may want to take from us. It is at these times that we must look for the resurrected Jesus and listen for his offer of peace. We celebrate the liturgy in expectation of Christ's return; we pray in hope through the Holy Spirit (CCC 2657). When we are fearful, remember the prayer of St. Paul: "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit" (Rom 15:13) Liturgical Publications Inc
