THREE MISSIONS Today we begin with one of the "servant songs" from the book of Isaiah, a song prophetic of Jesus' ministry of service. Isaiah's mission is not only to bring back the children of Jacob to gather in Israel; it is also to be "a light to the nations" (Isaiah 49:6). Jesus Christ, as servant, will be the fulfillment of the ancient prophecy and the basis of the new. This Sunday we begin a series of readings from Paul's letter to the Corinthians. Here Paul is identified by his mission: he is an apostle of Jesus Christ. The church at Corinth to whom he addresses this letter is also identified: it is part of the universal church of God. The Corinthians are called to holiness, as are all Christians. Though the feast of the Baptism of the Lord was celebrated last Monday, today's Gospel also alludes to the importance of that event. The reading emphasizes that Jesus "outranks" John: his baptism in the Spirit will eradicate sin. Jesus accepts John's baptism, even though it is he himself who is the Lamb of God. Copyright (c) J. S. Paluch Co., Inc. INTERCESSIONS FOR LIFE For the world: May we build a culture that embraces every man, woman, and child as priceless and that never treats any of them as a burden; We pray to the Lord: STEWARDSHIP “Now the Lord has spoken who formed me as his servant from the womb...” ISAIAH 49:5 You have to do what God is calling you to do and I have to do what God is calling me to do. Guess what, each of has been given a different plan! So, stop comparing yourself to others. Don’t let envy and jealousy enter your life. Be thankful for the gifts God has given you and generously share them with others. That we may faithfully live as God’s stewards, fulfilling the plan He had for each of us as He formed us in the womb. MARRIAGE MOMENTS In these days of racial tension, yes, black lives matter. Yes, all lives matter. Presumably you've had to figure out how to resolve differences in your own marriage. Do you have friends of a different race than your own? Relationships matter. Make friends. PARENTING POINTERS Many people are on the move this weekend. Some going to Washington DC for the Inauguration, others for the Women's March. Talk to your children about standing up for what they believe in. www.SusanVogt.net

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION As soon as Christmas ends, people begin planning for Easter! Originally, the source of our Paschal Triduum was but a single liturgy extending from Saturday sundown to sunrise on Easter Sunday. The two days leading up to the liturgy were days of fast, not only for the elect, but for the church preparing to baptize them. A fifth-century pope explained that the church imitated the apostles, who were in hiding with their grief from the arrest of Jesus, and therefore sacraments, even penance, were forbidden. Inevitably, though, people wanted to come together, and so eventually a Liturgy of the Word developed for Good Friday. This was the first step toward today's shape of the Triduum, and gradually new ideas were embraced, including the veneration of the cross and a simple Communion service. Interestingly, the Word remained central, since we know that in those days the pope did not receive Communion at this liturgy, even though the faithful had that option. In the other churches of Rome, priests and people received Communion under both species. Although the custom of Communion on Good Friday took hold, it did not endure past the Middle Ages. The central liturgies of the year slowly unraveled and disappeared from parish life. Remember that there were no seminaries in those days, and books were a rare luxury. Most priests could only manage to celebrate a simple "low" Mass, and few parishes could afford the ritual books that would guide a priest through the complex forms. Holy Week remained important in private devotion, but for a time the liturgies virtually disappeared Rev. James Field, Copyright (c) J. S. Paluch Co.

SAVE THE DATE FREE INCOME TAX PREPARATION If you plan to take advantage of this service and e-filing, you will need an appointment. Please respond by Monday, February 13th to the office at pssspeterpaul@charter.net or to Fr. Bruce Forman’s email at revycm@charter.net. This service includes tax return preparation, e-filing, and direct deposit of refund if desired by the taxpayer. All services are free. The volunteers are certified to do almost all Federal tax returns unless they involve depreciation (such as rental property), or involve selfemployment income with expenses over $25,000 or result in a net loss. The service also includes preparation of State tax returns including the MO Property Tax Credit (also known as the circuit breaker). If enough are interested in this service, we will arrange to have the volunteers set up on site at Sts. Peter and Paul on Saturday afternoon, March 4th from noon until 4 pm.


HAVING DINNER WITH AN OLD FRIEND By: Molly Jud, Events and Programs Coordinator, Office of Laity and Family Life "Welcome back home!" a friend of mine whispered with an embrace before we sat down for dinner. "It’s so good to be back," I replied, as we began chatting and eating our meal, I was struck by the ease of our conversation. Though we had lived far away from each other, and life had continued on for the both of us, a deep friendship remained in both our hearts. Questions flew out of our mouths and responses were given with joy and sadness, tears and laughs, and by the end of the night I was reminded of the depth of this particular friendship. A friendship I couldn't believe I had let slip through the cracks at times. This past October I moved back to St. Louis after living and working in Switzerland and Washington DC. Two amazing opportunities that this little adventurous heart loved! But growing up as the oldest of six kids with two wonderful parents, I knew there was going to be a day that I wanted to be back home where my roots were planted. Thankfully God had the same idea, and a priest friend of mine sent me the job description for the Events Coordinator for the Office of Laity and Family Life with the Archdiocese. Now I get to plan events like the Catholic Men for Christ and Catholic Women for Christ conferences that are coming up this February and March. Ironically, these events have reminded me what it is like to come home to a familiar place. Just like meeting an old friend for dinner, I have come to see how these conferences are a great way to rekindle a friendship with Our Lord. To learn new things, to catch up on life, and spend time in joy, healing, and peace and to reconnect with a Person—namely the Person of Jesus! Maybe this years’ Catholic Men and Catholic Women for Christ conferences could give you a chance to catch up with an old friend you may have lost touch with, to put a friendship back on track, and leave with a new resolve and discovery that you are grateful for!

Questions: Office of Laity & Family Life 314-792-7185 BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD I wonder if anyone understood John the Baptist when he called Jesus the Lamb of God. After Jesus' death and resurrection, the apostles began to understand that Jesus' blood, shed on the cross, freed us all from sin and death. Yet here is the Baptizer already acting like a disciple before Jesus has gathered any disciples or even begun to preach. In today's Gospel, John the Baptist gives us some hints about discipleship. First, John trusts God with things he does not understand. He says twice that he did not know Jesus. We too may not always understand where God is leading us. If you have lost a loved one, are looking for work when no one is hiring, or are dealing with serious illness, this is the time to trust that God still loves and cares for you. John also knew that doing God's work meant that God was working through him. Originally, John baptized others as sign of repentance, but he soon came to see that his real work was to make Jesus "known to Israel" (John 1:31). When we try to do what God wants, it is good to remember that God is the one in control and who decides what the result will be. John's third hint teaches us that a disciple shares his or her faith in God. So John testifies that Jesus is the Son of God. Even today, when Jesus is known throughout the world, we still need to share our faith experiences so those without faith may be attracted to it, and even those with faith can be encouraged by our sharing. You may be surprised to find that your own faith deepens the more you share it with others. Tom Schmidt, Copyright (c) J. S. Paluch Co.

SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME As we enter Ordinary Time, following the Christmas season, our readings suggest that something extraordinary is going on. In the passage from Isaiah, during the time of their exile the people of Israel are terribly confused and lost, and they long desperately for the healing and renewing presence of God. A servant is chosen, called to remind God's people that God's promises to them will be fulfilled. In the Gospel, as we move to the ministry of John the Baptist, Israel is again aching for God to be present among them. John proclaims that Jesus is the real deal, the Lamb of God, the fulfillment of God's promises. The Holy Spirit remains with Jesus. And as John testifies, when Jesus baptizes with the Spirit, this is God healing and renewing the people. CALLED TO TESTIFY All four Gospels speak of the baptism of Jesus, but the Gospel of John does so in a distinct way. The evangelist does not narrate the story, but instead provides the testimony of John the Baptist about the event. John simply reports the descent of the Holy Spirit and the Spirit's continued presence in Jesus. John the Baptist is thus shown as an exemplary disciple of Jesus; one who not only does great deeds, but also always points to Jesus. John testifies to Jesus; he proclaims him as the Christ and his entire life gives evidence of the lordship of Jesus. We too are invited to testify in daily life, to give testimony and to be evidence of God's reign in our world. LIGHT TO THE NATIONS From the beginning, the people of Israel understood themselves as a people who are gathered by God with a distinct purpose: to be so united with their God and with each other that they form a society filled with justice and mercy, and generously share with others. Imbued with God's graciousness and compassion, they are to be "a light to the nations," an example to all for how to live in community, and how to live in peace with all peoples. Our passage from Isaiah speaks to us today because all our parishes and Christian communities are similarly called to be such a light, to our neighbors and to our world. Every society struggles to find ways to live peaceably together. Bitterness in conflict and suspicion of strangers are all too common. The quality of our life together in Christian community thus matters a great deal. How we address conflict, how we forgive each other, and how we welcome strangers can be a source of light to our world. Put another way, as Paul wrote to the community in Corinth, we are called to holiness, to testify to God's graciousness in our life together. Copyright (c) J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.
