Parishes of St. Anthony of Padua and St. Thomas the Apostle Fr. Rick Courier, you are a blessing to us! We are grateful for your love, faith, and caring devotion. The Beautiful Hands of a Priest (Author unknown) We need them in lifes early morning, we need them again at its close; we feel their warm clasp of true friendship, we seek them when tasting lifes woes. At the altar each day we behold them, and the hands of a king on his throne are not equal to them in their greatness; their dignity stands all alone. And when we are tempted and wander, to pathways of shame and of sin, its the hand of a priest that will absolve us, not once, but again and again. And when we are taking lifes partner, other hands may prepare us a feast, but the hand that will bless and unite us is the beautiful hand of a priest. God bless them and keep them all holy, for the Host which their ingers caress. When can a poor sinner do better, than to ask him to guide thee and bless? When the hour of death comes upon us, may our courage and strength be increased, by seeing raised over us in blessing the beautiful hands of a priest. St. Joseph Catholic Parish and the LSSU Catholic Newman Center Father Mike, You are truly a blessing to St. Joseph Parish and the LSSU Catholic Newman Center. We are very excited about our future and its endless possibilities. Gods Holy Spirit is definitely at work in our Parish. God Bless you. Reverend Michael Chenier www.upcatholic.org THE U.P.
