March 2nd Message from Father Bob

Dear Nativity parishioners and friends, 

On Ash Wednesday I will receive my 10th and final treatment of radiation on my brain. Monday was a challenge, fighting a fever, etc.  Then on Thursday I’m having a CAT scan of my chest again. 

In my neighborhood there is an elderly lady named Julia who every day walks her dog named “Precious” down the street. Julia has pure, white hair and she is 93 years old. Julia is Polish and when she was a young girl was forced into a POW concentration camp in Russia.  She escaped and ended up eventually in North Olmsted as an elderly lady.  If you could hear her speak about Vladimir Putin and I quoted her my phone would melt. We need to pray for the people of Ukraine, and I think we should have them every day in our prayer intentions.  

I looked at the bishop’s letter to pastors about the latest info on the pandemic.  At this time, masks are optional but still recommended–it depends on each person.

Thank you very much again for all of your prayers and support.  Please keep praying and singing.

Love, Father Bob
