A Note from Your Deacon


A few weeks ago, Pope Francis released his third apostolic exhortation.  An apostolic exhortation is a document written by a pope, which highlights a pastoral message about a particular issue that the pope feels is important for Catholics to reflect on.  His first apostolic exhortation was Evangelii Gaudium, also known as the ‘Joy of the Gospel’ in English, was released on Nov. 24, 2013, and focused on the proclamation of the Gospel in the world today.  Amoris Laetitia, was released March 19, 2016, addressed to “bishops, priests and deacons, consecrated persons, Christian married couples and all the lay faithful,” and is focused on love in the family. Pope Francis’ third apostolic exhortation, Gaudete et Exsultate, translated “Rejoice and Be Glad” was released on April 9, 2018.  In this document, the Pope begins by saying:

“REJOICE AND BE GLAD… (Mt 5:12), Jesus tells those persecuted or humiliated for his sake. The Lord asks everything of us, and in return he offers us true life, the happiness for which we were created. He wants us to be saints and not to settle for a bland and mediocre existence. For the Lord has chosen each one of us “to be holy and blameless before him in love” (Eph 1:4).”

Challenging words addressed to us.  God wants us to be saints! Yes, that does mean you and me!  God wants us to be holy. Yet, we are called to be who we truly are and not be a copy or “cookie cutter” of other saints; and definitely not a plastic saint standing on a podium. Pope Francis goes on to share:

“I like to contemplate the holiness present in the patience of God’s people: in those parents who raise their children with immense love, in those men and women who work hard to support their families, in the sick, in elderly religious who never lose their smile. In their daily perseverance I see the holiness of the Church militant. Very often it is a holiness found in our next-door neighbors, those who, living in our midst, reflect God’s presence. We might call them “the middle class of holiness”.

We are humble parishes, striving to stay alive and grow….and I think there are many here who belong to that “middle class of holiness” that the Pope speaks about.  We can all grow by little steps toward this type of holiness.  Pope Francis again shares:

“This holiness to which the Lord calls you will grow through small gestures. Here is an example: a woman goes shopping, she meets a neighbor and they begin to speak, and the gossip starts. But she says in her heart: “No, I will not speak badly of anyone”. This is a step forward in holiness. Later, at home, one of her children wants to talk to her about his hopes and dreams, and even though she is tired, she sits down and listens with patience and love. That is another sacrifice that brings holiness. Later she experiences some anxiety, but recalling the love of the Virgin Mary, she takes her rosary and prays with faith. Yet another path of holiness. Later still, she goes out onto the street, encounters a poor person and stops to say a kind word to him. One more step.”

There is much more to be said regarding this document but time and space limit me. However, I encourage you to take some time to read this and reflect on its message.  This exhortation can be purchased through the USCCB website or through our local Cathedral Bookstore, or read on-line through the Vatican website.

“Do not fear holiness”, says Pope Francis, “it will take away none of your energy, vitality, or joy.”


In His Mercy,


 

Deacon Mark

 

The Mass – A slice at a time

Other Formulas Occurring during the Celebration

Since the celebration of Mass by its nature has a “communitarian” character, both the dialogues between the Priest and the assembled faithful, and the acclamations are of great significance; for they are not simply outward signs of communal celebration but foster and bring about communion between Priest and people.


Faith Formation Update

On Wednesday April 25, for our last class we had a wonderful potluck cookout with about 60 people attending. We played basketball, drew on the side walk with chalk and played kickball.  Fr. Francis gave instructions on Altar Serving to two of our students.  It has been a great year.  Thank you to all who attended and helped clean up. 

A First Communion Retreat is planned for April 28th from 9 - 10:30 am to prepare for the Holy Eucharist. First Communion will be May 13th at 9 am Mass along with our May Crowning.  


 

Thanks to the students, families and catechists for a great year!  Sign up for Faith Formation for 2018  - 2019 will be at the end of summer or early fall. Classes will begin in late September.

Parish Cemetery – Selling of Burial Rights

 Anyone wishing to purchase burial rights in a parish cemetery shall contact the parish office, which in turn, will contact the employee or the cemetery committee member who is in charge of selling burial rights. 

It is important to note that the cemetery/parish does not sell physical property. The purchaser does not take ownership of the land on which the lots(s) are located, but rather the purchaser becomes a holder of burial right(s) in that space. A clear explanation should be included in each cemeteries own “Burial Rights Policy.”

All monies paid for burial rights shall be paid to the parish office. The monies will be credited to the specific cemetery accounts, and a receipt will be given to the purchaser, with a certificate of easement, which is a document that confirms the right(s) of burial.  

 


Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers Needed

Come help celebrate the Mass by joining us as a lector or Eucharistic minister on Saturday or Sundays.  Preparation is minimal and the rewards of this service are enriching and fulfilling. Please contact the Parish Office at St. Michaels if interested. (715) 799-3811.
