Chris Micale Ordination

THE PRIESTLY ORDINATION OF FATHER CHRISTOPHER MICALE Father Christopher Micale, a man from Woodstock and Our Lady of the Snows Parish, was ordained a priest of the Roman Catholic Church at 10:00 AM on Saturday, May 31. His Excellency, Salvatore R. Matano, Bishop of Rochester, NY, performed the ordination at St. Joseph Co-Cathedral in Burlington, Vermont.

GREETINGS FROM FATHER MIKE

As your new pastor, I leave you these words from a sermon of Pope St. Leo the Great to mediate on during this holy season of Lent.

…This belief in the Lord’s Incarnation, dearly-beloved, through which the whole Church is Christ’s body, hold firm with heart unshaken and abstain from all the lies of heretics, and remember that your works of mercy will only then profit you, and your strict continence only then bear fruit, when your minds are unsoiled by any defilement from wrong opinions. Cast away the arguments of this world’s wisdom, for God hates them, and none can arrive by them at the knowledge of the Truth, and keep fixed in your mind that which you say in the Creed. Believe the Son of God to be co-eternal with the Father by Whom all things were made and without Whom nothing was made, born also according to the flesh at the end of the times. Believe Him to have been in the body crucified, dead, raised up, and lifted above the heights of heavenly powers, set on the Father’s right hand, about to come in the same flesh in which He ascended, to judge the living and the dead. For this is what the Apostle proclaims to all the faithful, saying: if you be risen with Christ seek the things which are above, where Christ is sitting on the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are upon the earth. For you are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. For when Christ, our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with Him in glory. Colossians 3: 1-4.

Relying, therefore, dearly-beloved, on so great a promise, be heavenly not only in hope, but also in conduct. And though our minds must at all times be set on holiness of mind and body, yet now during these 40 days of fasting bestir yourselves to yet more active works of piety, not only in the distribution of alms, which are very effectual in attesting reform, but also in forgiving offenses, and in being merciful to those accused of wrongdoing, that the condition which God has laid down between Himself and us may not be against us when we pray. For when we say, in accordance with the Lord’s teaching, Forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors, we ought with the whole heart to carry out what we say. For then only will what we ask in the next clause come to pass, that we be not led into temptation and freed from all evils: through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

Reverend Michael Augustinowitz, Pastor
