  • Greetings from St. Louis Fr. Reese, March 2015

    Greetings in the Lord. I am writing you from the beautiful chapel of Our Mother of Good Counsel nursing home, run by the wonderfully holy Franciscan Sisters of the Martyr St. George who are full of love and compassion for the sick. They originated in Germany where their Cardinal protector was once Eugenio Pacelli, so I know that my prayers to Ven. Pius XII have been answered!
    This is a healthy and holy place, and so my health has improved with my lung infection gone and in many other ways. I am trying to become holy by offering up my trials and by praying more. I normally pray one hour before Mass and one hour after. Then I try to remain in His presence through frequent spiritual aspirations and glances at His Crucifix with our Sorrowful Mother beneath it.
    My hope is to be a contemplative -- praying especially for vocations to the priesthood in Peoria, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Chicago, Rapid City, S.D., Ireland, Wales, Kitui, Kenya, Springfield, Il., and Denver and for these holy Franciscan sisters. I am always praying for Our Lady of Mount Carmel, St. Therese, and for St. Joseph Academy where I was so involved (All Saints too). I am very glad that my ardent prayers to St. Joseph were answered that no casino come to Kenosha, but other jobs instead. In fact, I now pray that an annual Passion play will come there through the intercession of St. Padre Pio.
    I will certainly miss all of you in Kenosha, and leaving brought some tears to my eyes as when St. Paul left the Corinthians. However, you are in very good hands with Fr. Campbell and Fr. McDermott. I am happy here in St. Louis where many of my ancestors have lived for generations (also the Cardinals), and God has given me a new mission, united to His Cross. Please pray for this poor sinner and for all the Sisters, nurses aides and sick here (including a Bishop and 6 other priests).
    In His Sacred Heart and her Immaculate Heart with St. Joseph,
    Father Ben Reese
