Parish Giving Update
Together we fund our parish
and live our mission!
“Come after me,” said Jesus, “and
I will make you fishers of people.”
Those are two functions, two sides
of the same coin. Following the path
of a master is the work of a disciple,
student or apprentice. Going fishing
for people, however, is the work of a
person sent in the name of another.
The Twelve were fishers of people
for Christ Jesus. Are not we also
both disciples and apostles for Christ
Jesus? Yes. In his name we proclaim
the Gospel of God. The time is now;
God’s reign is breaking in! We proclaim that Good News in word and
deed to all because we love them.

St. Andrew Announcements - Jan. 25, 2015

Sunday. You may also bring one item

Before Vatican II the Sacrament of Reconciliation, at that
time called the Sacrament of Penance, or confession, was
associated with a small dark room where the penitent maintained anonymity. The priest also could not be seen, and the
two spoke to one another through a screen. Since Vatican II
churches have incorporated larger rooms
known as reconciliation chapels where the
priest and penitent can sit together, share
Scripture and celebrate the sacrament, now
known as reconciliation. This provides
more of an opportunity for the penitent
to ask questions and for the priest to offer
By Elaine Rendler-McQueeney, from Today’s Liturgy 2012
Today we journey with Jesus to Galilee as he calls the
people to repentance.
He invites James and John to join him and by the end of
the story, they have radically changed their lives to follow
him. Today’s readings provide yet another opportunity for
the Rite of Welcoming the Candidates into the RCIA to take
place. Also, see Paul Covino’s hospitable words about the Rite
of Reception for baptized adults coming into the Catholic
Church in his Ritual Notes on An appropriate
song after today’s Gospel and homily is “The Summons”
(kelvingrove), addressing the call to discipleship and the cost.
Not too slow, please—it’s dance-like.
The entrance processional “Sing a New Song” (Psalm
98) has the same spirit as today’s entrance antiphon from a
royal psalm (Psalm 96). Dan Schutte has eliminated the word
Yahweh and provided a smooth revision of the text of this
favorite. “Yahweh’s people dance for joy” has been modified
to “Shout with gladness! Dance for joy!” Nice work, Dan!
You are a blessing to us. (He is also a Today’s Liturgy reader.)
Dan’s book, Walking the Sacred Path (, based
on the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, can
be used to assist parish councils, RCIA teams, prayer groups,
and even individuals to deepen their relationship with Christ
through a creative, contemplative approach.

The meaning of confirmation has changed
over the years. Originally it was celebrated
as part of baptism, one of the parts of
the initiation ritual. As the bishop became
no longer the primary minister of baptism
due to the large numbers of people, confirmation became
separated from baptism and became the bishop’s confirmation of the baptism ministered by the priest. Gradually as
it was celebrated later in life, further removed from baptism, it became thought of as a teenage right of passage, a
change for the individual to make a personal commitment.
With the Vatican II reinstatement of the catechumenate,
the original order and meaning of the sacrament was
restored with confirmation following immediately after
baptism as a sacrament of initiation. In some countries
the two sacraments were never separated, but have always
remained linked.

“In my weakness is my strength,” Paul writes (2 Cor.
12:10). I never understood that passage nor did I like it
until, struck with polio as a young woman, I began little by
little to realize that if I ever walked again, it would not be
thanks to me, it would be thanks to everyone around me
who formed the human chain that kept me human. When
I could not move, they carried me. When I could not work,
they found functions for me that justified my existence.
When I could not find a reason for going on, they liked
me enough to give me back a sense of human connectedness. When I could not cure
myself, they cured me of the clay of my limits and turned them into life again. They
taught me the glories of weakness.
When I most wanted to be strong and like no other time in life found myself
defined by my weaknesses, I began to understand the great questions of life. If I do
not need other people, what is their own purpose in life, what is their claim on my
own gifts when they need me as I have needed them? The moment I come to realize
that it is precisely the gifts which I do not myself embody that make me claimant to
the gifts of others—and they of mine—marks the moment of my spiritual beginning. Suddenly, creature-hood becomes gift and power and the beginning of unlimAlerta de acción referente a un coited personal growth.
