Ramblings/Ministry Schedule
Page 3
t seems the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church is in a bit of a pickle; he was photographed wearing a $25,000
Swiss watch. Well he is the head of a big church in Russia after all; what’s the big deal with a really, really nice
timepiece? The issue is that Patriarch Kirill, the top dog of all Orthodox Russians, says he doesn’t own such a thing and
has never worn one. A bit of history is in order: The Russian Orthodox Church generally hates the Catholic Church for political
and historic reasons; the current Patriarch Kirill has been rather chummy with the Popes over the years, and this has brought
him some grief from other Russian Orthodox bishops who believe the Pope is the antichrist. In reality the Russian Orthodox
Church became a political department of the old Soviet Union; and you probably thought they were just godless commies! In
the new Russia the Orthodox Church still acts more as an extension of the State than as an independent religious entity.
For a few years the Orthodox Russian hierarchy was given government permission to sell cigarettes without taxes; this
brought over one billion (yes, with a B) dollars to the Church. It sure beats bingo games and raffles. Guess who coordinated
the sale of the cigarettes? That’s right, a Russian bishop named Kirill. The money made went to the Church which was badly in
need of funds at the time; so what about the watch? Astute investigators went to the website of the Russian Orthodox Church
and noted Kirill was wearing the watch. Now I couldn’t tell the difference between an expensive watch and a timepiece with
Mickey Mouse on the face, but the experts confirmed the identity of the said $25,000 wristwatch. So now everyone goes on the
website to see the nice watch, but it is gone! Mysteriously his wrist is now bare, but interestingly the reflection of his wrist
appears on the table where he is sitting, and the watch is on the wrist in the reflection, which means the watch was airbrushed
out of the original photo. Whether he wants to admit it or not, the Patriarch has a really nice, expensive watch. Somehow I
don’t think Pope Francis is jealous.
Is this the Kingship we talk about when we celebrate Jesus Christ, King of the Universe; the Kingship of royal robes,
crowns, gems and $25,000 wristwatches? No, the King we worship gave His life for us and pours out His Blood and gives of
His Body that we can become sharers in His Divine Life. He is not a King who takes, but a King who gives.

Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry…November… Yep, we’re already
planning our celebration of Birth of Jesus, and a key
component is YOU! To enable the maximum number of people to
participate, we are going to have five rehearsals on the six
Thursdays prior to Christmas (no rehearsal on Thanksgiving Day)

rehearsals is the goal for creating a beautiful and inspiring Liturgy,
if participants can attend at least three rehearsals, they should be
sufficiently prepared to take part in the music for Midnight Mass.
Reading the Bible Story
The story is told of an old man who lived on a farm in the
mountains of eastern Kentucky with his young grandson. Each
morning, Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading
from his old worn-out Bible. His grandson who wanted to be just
like him tried to imitate him in any way he could.
One day the grandson asked, 'Papa, I try to read the
Bible just like you but I don't understand it, and what I do
understand I forget as soon as I close the book. What good does
reading the Bible do?' The Grandfather quietly turned from putting
coal in the stove and said, 'Take this old wicker coal basket down
to the river and bring back a basket of water.'
The boy did as he was told, even though all the water
leaked out before he could get back to the house. The
grandfather laughed and said, 'You will have to move a little faster
next time,' and sent him back to the river with the basket to try
again. This time the boy ran faster, but again the old wicker
basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he
told his grandfather that it was 'impossible to carry water in a
basket,' and he went to get a bucket instead. The old man said,
'I don't want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water. You can
do this. You're just not trying hard enough,' and he went out the
door to watch the boy try again.
At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he
wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he
could, the water would leak out before he got far at all. The boy
scooped the water and ran hard, but when he reached his
grandfather the basket was again empty. Out of breath, he said,
'See Papa, it's useless!' 'So you think it is useless?' the old man
said. 'Look at the basket.'
The boy looked at the basket and for the first time he realized that the basket looked different. Instead of a dirty old wicker
coal basket, it was clean. 'Son, that's what happens when you
read the Bible. You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, it will change you from the inside
Moral of the wicker basket story: Take time to read a portion of
God's word each day; it will affect you for good even if you don't
retain a word. Thought for Today: God's Love is like the ocean,
you can see its beginnings but not its end.

The feast of Christ the King was intended to call the world
back to Christ as the sole power of the world, to bring back a flock
that had been scattered by many negative forces of the growing
industrial, scientific, and war‑torn world of the early twentieth
century. It is fitting that, as we celebrate Christ the King, we hear
about Christ the Shepherd who cares for us and who, likewise,
will be there at the end of time. Interestingly enough, as the
Gospel illustrates, our own destiny is determined by the way we
have been “shepherds” to the rest of the flock.

handicapped or sick, no matter how useful or productive for
society - is a being of inestimable worth created in the image and
likeness of God. This is the dignity of America … the ultimate test
of her greatness: to respect every human person, especially the
weakest and most defenseless ones, those as yet unborn.”
Pope John Paul II, “Apostolic Journey to the United States and
Canada: Farwell Ceremony,” September 19, 1987
Coming to the end of the Church year, we can wonder how
we got “extreme unction” out of “anointing of the sick.” “Extreme”
comes from a Latin phrase, in extremis, which in English refers to
the last struggle of a dying person. “Last rites” is a phrase in
common usage, and refers to the fact that years ago everyone
waited until the last crisis of illness to summon the priest. The
goal of anointing had always been healing and forgiveness, but in
time it began to be seen as a preparation for death. In a hard
world, almost anything from a hangnail to a sneeze could be life‑threatening, so perhaps the change was inevitable. The emphasis
on the penitential aspects was heightened, even to the odd
practice of Rome in the twelfth century, when the sick person was
sprinkled with ashes mixed with holy water and given a hair shirt
as a sign of penance.
The reformers thankfully overlooked some of these
oddities of history, and today the sacrament of the sick is much
more generously applied to persons in a wide range of situations.
Still, it is a sacrament of reconciliation, and for that reason is not
celebrated for an infant or toddler, although there is a rite for a
visit to a sick child not including anointing or Communion
