Kings 3:9 talks about an understanding heart to judge people. “Young King
Solomon’s request from God, the gift of wisdom edified me. He wanted
wisdom to help others. His example could improve our modern-day conduct,
which is often narrow minded selfishness. We should pray each day for
wisdom, which is in the heart, and never does wrong. The more we have the better the
world would be. (Fr. James McKarns) Come spend an hour with the Eucharistic Lord,
asking for wisdom and thanking Him for all His gifts to us. Call today 330-745-6852.
The following are current vacant hours; please consider filling a spot and spend

Thirty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

The Sadducees in today’s gospel did not believe in the resurrection. Death was the end of the
road. At family gatherings all the fun, caring, support, affection, and laughter gives us a
glimpse into eternal life. Family life can be a window into eternal life.

Pastor’s Pick of the Week: “All That Remains: The Story of Takashi Nagai”

This movie tells the inspiring story of Nagasaki atomic bomb survivor and
Catholic convert, Dr. Takashi Nagai. A rich, stylistic blend of live action, CGI, and
archive footage, All That Remains brings to life the amazing story of a forgotten hero in
the West-but deeply beloved in Japan-and a pivotal moment in history for a
generation, and takes the viewer on a visceral journey of discovery and revelations.
Nagai, a descendent of a Samurai family, a patriot and a pioneering scientist
embarks upon a quest for the “ultimate truth” – the meaning of life and death. It is a
journey that starts at his mother’s deathbed, and leads him to discover the “hidden
Christians” of Nagasaki and meet Midori, the woman who will finally transform a
skeptical man of intellect, into a man of the heart and faith. As Takashi struggles with
his new faith, storm clouds gather in Japan as militarists take control of the
government and drag Japan into a long, bloody war with China.
When Japan declares war on England and America, Takashi is convinced that
X-ray technology will be in high demand and absorbs himself in his work, risking his
health and neglecting his family. But everything changes in a blinding flash, as the
atomic bomb is detonated over Nagasaki. Midori is one of the 80,000 souls killed
instantly. Takashi, now battling leukemia, left alone to raise their two young children,
turns to God for help, and is inspired to rebuild Nagasaki from the rubble and ash.
Becoming increasingly bedridden, he begins to wright about his experiences. It is
through his profound words as a revered man of peace, that a country defeated and
demoralized by war rediscovers the healing power of love.

Christ’s Peace!

Fr. David Majikas

This week our parish will take a collection to benefit the Archdiocese for the Military Services,
USA, a triennial collection approved by the U.S.A. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Please
prayerfully consider a contribution to this special collection to support active-duty military men
and women, and their families – including those from our own parish.

Congratulations to our new Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion: Wane Goss,

Sally Knorr, Jamie Murawski and Dorathy Ulichney. May God bless you and may you
continue to grow in love of the Eucharist as you minister here at St. Augustine

Please note: Information for the December 1 bulletin must be received into
the rectory by Thursday, November 21.

The new crucifix in the Jesus Garden –

St. Augustine has purchased and installed the beautiful crucifix that you now
see in the Jesus Garden facing 6th Street. The previous wooden crucifix had rotted
Our marble crucifix had been in the courtyard of the Sisters of the Carmelite
Monastery in Cleveland Heights which went on the market in May 2019. We were able
to purchase it from Henninger’s at a salvage rate which was far less than the cost of
such a crucifix purchased brand new.

Our crucifix is made of Carrara marble. It was carved from a single block – the
city of Carrara is in the province of Mass and Carrara in Lunigiana, the northern most
tip of modern-day Tuscany. The Basilica of Massa is built entirely of Carrara marble
and the Ducal Palace of Massa was used as a showcase of the precious stone. Our
crucifix was carved from Carrara marble that is one grade below the highest grade of
Carrara marble. Some other notable uses of Carrara marble were: The Pantheon,
Trajan’s Column, Michelangelo’s David, the Marble Arch London, the sarcophagus of
St. Hedwig, queen of Poland and the Peace Monument in Washington D.C.
I am certain that this crucifix will bring much joy to those who stop to pray and reflect
for many, many years to come.
