Reflection from The Word among Us

Novena in Honor of Mary Help of Christians

" There are times when God is silent, a silence which cannot be understood unless we gaze upon Christ crucified."..Pope Francishttps://twitter.com/pontifex

It is in these Greek words that we see not only Peter's repentance (the three affirmations to match his three denials) but also his newfound humility. Peter has just shown through his denial that he does not yet really agape Jesus. Peter's use of phileo shows his understanding of this. Though he wants to agape Jesus, he sees that at this point he is only able to phileo Jesus. No more boasting or proud assertions of his love for Jesus and instead, humility. As a result, Jesus switches to phileo, undoubtedly pleased with Peter for his honesty and humility (notice that Jesus doesn't scold Peter for responding with phileo; nor is there an admonition when Jesus switches to phileo). Of course we know, as did Jesus, that even if at that time Peter was only ready to phileo Jesus, his love did in the end mature to agape, as demonstrated by his martyrdom. Jesus' prophecy of Peter's martyrdom shows this. Jesus' call to Peter to "Follow me" also shows Peter's need to continue growing in faith and love. This is always such a reassuring thought: that the very first vicar of Christ also needed to mature in his faith and love! How much more we, therefore, need to have the humility to recognize where we are, and how far we still need to go, all the while holding onto the hope that such change is possible. (Jn 21:15-19)

The Feast of the Ascension of the Lord may be celebrated today or on the following Sunday. This holy solemnity, which the Acts of the Apostles 1:3 situates forty days after the Resurrection, commemorates Jesus’ return to his Father in heaven.[1] This solemn blessing for the Feast expresses its significance for us - See more at: http://divineoffice.org/#sthash.tlMq18HC.dpuf
This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. This I command you, to love one another,'” - See more at: http://divineoffice.org/#sthash.HMXuLWHr.dpuf

"There is no lack of injustice and pain and anxiety in this world. But none of this comes from our Father—and we should keep none of it to ourselves. Rather, God is inviting us to bring it all to him, no matter how big or small, so that he can give us his guidance and his comfort. He wants us to be grateful that he is with us, no matter what paths we are on. This is how our hearts can be guarded and protected. This is how we can hold onto our peace in good days and bad."

................Fr. Mike Pace prepares us for the Feast of Pentecost

Prayer to Mary Help of Christians

Catholic saints are holy people and human people who lived

extraordinary lives. Each saint the Church honors responded to God's invitation to use his or her unique gifts. God calls each one of us to be a saint :)

Great Young People

Last Sunday (Jan.18,2015), I had the great joy of meeting a  wonderful group of young people at the closing of the Youth Leadership Weekend. Their enthusiastic participation in the closing Mass was a joy to behold. In speaking with some of them following the Liturgy, I found young men and women who had been set on fire for the Lord, wanting to continue to grow in their faith. If these young people are the future of the Church, we are in good hands. Keep up the good work Salesian Youth Leaders.…See More
