A Polish-American Jesuit friend invited me to dinner at his mother’s house. This sounded quite agreeable. The only
instruction I was given beforehand was: do not refuse second helpings.
Young and skinny, I knew I would accept even thirds. Polish mothers take great pride in their traditional foods and in
the multiple, large, large, large bowls they use to serve them. Diverse foods, all delicious, each and every one
astonishingly filling. So I ate and ate and ate until the terrible moment arrived.
“Here, have some more, oh my goodness you don’t have anything on your plate, take some of this. And this. And
this. You are going to starve. You won’t be ready for dessert if you don’t eat your meal!”
Luckily I did not roll my eyes. I took as little of each as I could politely do, dealt with dessert, and took my stuffed self
away from the table, graced with a new friend in my new Polish mother.
Why do I tell you this? Because Simon’s mother-in-law in the Gospel must have been just this sort of a woman.
Whenever guests visited, I’m sure she would be hustling and bustling, stirring up a welcome, dish after dish.
But when Jesus and the apostles came over one day, she had been taken ill and helpless!
Jesus saw how much out of character it would be for her to just lie there looking at the guests. Even though Jesus was
immersed in his new career—preaching, curing, driving out unclean spirits, showing the great tenderness of God for
people—he took her hand, healed her without ceremony, and lifted her out of her frustration. The Gospel says that,
next, “she waited on them.”
She was the Polish mother.
By contrast, in the First Reading we hear the ancient words of Job, who does nothing but complain that everything
has been taken away from him. “My life is like the wind,” he says, “I shall not see happiness again.”
I have been assigned months of misery,
and troubled nights have been allotted to me.
If in bed I say, "When shall I arise?" then the night drags on;
I am filled with restlessness until the dawn.
Many of us will recognize these symptoms from our own lives.
But Job lost more than just sleep. Formerly he had been prosperous, with a wife and servants, children, land,
livestock, and a sterling reputation. It was all gone.
He had been holy and loving:
I rescued the poor who cried out for help,
the orphans, and the unassisted, ...
the heart of the widow I made joyful, …
I was eyes to the blind,
and feet to the lame was I”
What had he done to deserve his huge deprivations? For that matter, what had Jesus done to deserve his terrible
losses—his people (and his frequent meals with them), his preaching and curing and befriending?
When he hung on the cross did he remember his mother’s meals?
This much we do conclude: loss is the way of the world. The blessings we receive fall away and are broken. Starvation
lurks.
God knows this too. He stays with us either way. “Father and fondler of heart he has wrung” (Hopkins), he shows
that love means “being with,” instead of just taking away trouble. ~ John Foley S. J.
Are you looking for a deeper relationship with
our Lord, Jesus Christ?

just change your life.

Dear Friends:
During our preparation for the
Catholic Faith appeal this year,
we came upon a most
interesting insight into sharing
the blessing that God has
entrusted to us. I wanted to
share the insight with you as we
prepare for this year’s Appeal.

Last Saturday and Sunday was
an
especially
uplifting
weekend for our music
ministry, quite a few people
came forward and encouraged
us by saying that they love the
fact that our church is filled with the
sounds of joyful singing! We in turn give
all the Glory to Jesus, (which is right
where it belongs!) and we encouraged
them to keep singing ever more joyfully
from the pews. We need more and more
of this until the sound of our voices at SES
is shaking the rafters for Christ!
We are excited to welcome three new
choir members this week and a
professional percussionist who has
offered to become part of our music
ministry for the month of February.
Keep the excitement going! Join the choir
or music ministry!

Our Faith Formation
Many of our Blestways children are preparing for
their very first Reconciliation on February 28, at
9:30am. Besides learning their prayers, they are
learning about the examination of conscience, the
rituals of penance, and penance. Of course
reciting the Act of Contrition correctly is also
important.

Dear Friends at St. Elizabeth Seton:
The Collection for the Church in
Central & Eastern Europe
On Wednesday, February 18th our second
collection will support the Collection for the
Church in Central and Eastern Europe. This
collection supports Catholic organizations
that provide affordable shelter and train
seminarians in a region that still struggles
from the effects of Soviet rule. By providing
pastoral care, catechesis, and funding for
building renovations, your donations help to
restore the Church and build the future in
the region.
The envelopes at the end of the pews are for
our support of the Church in Central and
Eastern Europe. Please use the envelopes to
make your gift.
We are so grateful for the beautiful baby
shower for the Sunlight Home and the
Community Pregnancy Center. We are so
grateful for the wonderful food, the creative way
it was presented and the numerous gifts
(beautiful handmade baby quilts, blankets,
adorable sweaters, booties, diapers, baby wipes, etc.)
Thank you so much for treating Paige, Jacob and Shiloh with such value. They
had such a good time.
Your generosity also helps Sunlight Home offer hope to homeless mothers who
come to us in the future. Because of you, while they are in their deepest time of
crises we can offer them hope. You have made it
possible for us to meet their needs in so many
ways.
God bless you each one for all you do to make
sure so many are provided for.
~Linda Hale, Executive Director
