Saturday, SePtember zz:

3:16-4:3 / Mark 9:3o-37

The day will come when an instruction I give my daughter-"Please make your bed," "Don't forget your lunch money," or "Stop hitting your brother over the head"- will go in one ear and out the other: Five minutes later the bed will be unmade, the Iunch money forgotten, the brother still getting a bruising. l'm sure most parents have wondered how their child can misunderstand perfectly clear instructions.

I imagine Jesus felt similarly about his disciples in today's Gospel. Jesus teaches about his suffering and death-a time of utter vulnerability and humiliation. Yet not moments later, his disciples are arguing about who is the greatest-as if they hadn't heard anything he said. He must have been shocked. But as a good teacher, he reiterates his message with an example. He brings a child forth and actually identifies himself with the child. "Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me." ln Jesus'time, those who were dependent and couldn't provide for themselves had no social status or importance.

Children

fall into that category.

Jesus claimed

to be one of the vulnerable

and

dependent-in stark contrast to his disciples' arguments about who is the greatest. Today, who are the vulnerable people Jesus identifies with? Perhaps a single parent

who relies on the welfare system for survival. Perhaps a lonely elderly woman plagued with illness in a nursing home. Perhaps the man who's a regular at your parish's food pantry, Do we recognize Jesus in these people, or do we dismiss them as burdensome to society as we seek more for ourselves? Does Jesus need to reiterate his message to us again, just as he did to his disciples?

Mahalo to our coordinators and all who participated in our Movie Night on Friday. "For Greate r Glory" if you have not seen it, please find time to listen to a zoth century story of Faith in action.

YEAR OF FAITH Pope Benedict XVI has declared October a\ 2c:-2 to November 24t 201-2as the Year of Faith. The upcoming Year of Faith is a "summons to an

authentic and renewed conversion to the Lord, the One Savior of the YTAR TAffi{fi]l world" (Porta Fidei6).ln other words, the Year of Faith is an opportunity for Catholics to experience a conversion - to turn back to Jesus and enter into a deeper relationship with him. The "door of faith" is opened at one's baptism, but during this year Catholics are called to open it again, walk through it and rediscover and renew their relationship with Christ and his Church. Celebrate the opening Mass of the "Year of Faith" on Tuesday, October 9th at 7.oo P.m. at the Co-Cathedral of St. Theresa. OF

Redemptorist priest, he and his compatriots encountered unimaginable hostilities for being German and CatholicHis exemplary witness through this adversity broke down barriers and dissipated people's fears.

As an itinerant preacher, pastor, seminary director, and lifelong friend of the destitute, Seelos was a spiritual father to thousands. Countless pilgrims visit his sacred remains at the National Shrine of Blessed Francis Seelos within Saint Mary's Assumption Church in New Orleans. He was beatified by PopeJohn Paul II in 2000, and we pray for his canonization (www.seelos.org).

Second Vatican Council opened up opportunities for you and me

in Ordinarg Time

to play apart in the celebration of the Eucharist, the Liturgy of the Church. The Church Fathers drafted a Document that stated "Let the spiritual shepherds recognize and promote the dignity and the responsibility of the laity in the Church." (The Dogmatic Constitution onthe Church, #37) We can now serve as Lectors and Acolytes and Ministers of Music and even help the priest to distribute the Body and Blood of Christ. Let's find out how we can be better Ministers: October 6th at B:00 a.m. in the Church.
