January 29, 2017 St. Andrew’s 3rd Reducing Gun Violence Forum Community Center News Volunteer Appreciation Tuesday, March 14, 7:30 PM Community Center Appropriate for adults and teens Today’s Liturgy By Deacon Owen Cummings The Beatitudes from the Lord’s Sermon on the Mount form our Gospel reading for the solemnity of All Saints. Each beatitude reflects the present order in the first part, even as it looks to the final consummation in the second. Earth and heaven are brought into conjunction. This is really what Jesus is: earth and heaven in one Person. In reality the Beatitudes describe the person of Jesus himself. The Anglican New Testament scholar, R. H. Fuller, puts it nicely when he says, “He was all the things and did all the things the beatitudes enumerate.” He is the one who is really poor in spirit. The reign of God is his. In fact, as Origen of Alexandria put it, he is the reign of God in person, he is autobasileia. He is lowly, he hungers and thirsts for holiness, he shows mercy. Jesus is single-hearted, focused on his Father, is the peacemaker par excellence, and, above all else, is the one who is persecuted for holiness’ sake. All saints are saints in Christ. Without him there is no existence, nor holiness. In the Litany of Saints we formally note those women and men whose lives and witness exemplify the Beatitudes of the Blessed One in whom they have flourished, and in whom we too are called to flourish. © 2003, OCP.

It is also called “Candlemas Day,” because part of the ritual for this day is the blessing of candles. People can be invited to bring candles from their homes to be blessed. Some parishes hand out blessed candles at the end of the day’s liturgies. Blessed candles from today’s feast are used for the blessing of throats on the next day, the feast of St. Blaise. The feast has traditionally involved processions and candles. The feast recalls the Jewish rite of an infant’s presentation forty days after birth. Blessing candles has always been a traditional way of remembering Jesus—Light of the World— as well as the call to ourselves to be light for one another. Traditionally, all the candles used for the coming year are blessed as we remember the story of Jesus being presented by his parents at the Temple of Jerusalem. In words used as a canticle of praise in the evening prayer of the church, the prophet Simeon foretold about the Child: “A light of revelation to the Gentile world, and the glory of his people, Israel.” Once again, the church celebrates a basic gift, the gift of light, a gift that we take for granted, and it gives it new meaning. Besides the light that we share in our homes and work, we can be reminded that Jesus is the Light of the World.

Part of the Beckman Humor Project. St. Vincent de Paul / St. Andrew Emergency Services A Way of Love and Freedom The call to repentance is fundamental to the whole Christian Tradition. It echoes throughout the Old Testament and lies at the very beginning of the New. The early Fathers of the Church, the Councils, the saints, countless thousands of the faithful believed and tried to live out this call. How is it possible, then, that so many contemporary Christians—At least in the West—seem unable or unwilling to hear and answer it? There are two main reasons for this, I think. First of all, perhaps, we no longer understand the real meaning of repentance. We do not often understand it in its true religious sense, as a way of love and freedom, of total trust in God’s infinite mercy. Instead, we tend to view it in mainly psychological terms: as a negative emotion or state of mind, an expression of an exaggerated, even neurotic, sense of guilt. Secondly, because we often do not understand the nature of salvation, we do not realize the immensity of what we have lost as a result of sin. We cannot, therefore, mourn the absence of what we do not know we could have. In fact, we do not understand the true nature of sin. We tend to think of it as disobedience, the breaking of this or that commandment, individual wrong acts, rather than as a painful condition of the human spirit, a shadow background of all our lives. Thus we are inclined to view repentance as a way of paying a debt, a spiritual “transaction,” and do not easily see it as a way of healing and life. Irma Zaleski was born in Poland in 1931.
