A Reflection “Lo, I will send you Elijah, the prophet, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and terrible day …" (Mal 3.23). This prediction, coupled with the Prophet's dramatic departure from the earth (2 Kgs 2.11), generated a conviction among the Jews that Elijah would return to prepare the day of Yahweh. The Gospels offer evidence of just such a belief in Palestine at the time of Christ. The Jewish levites and priests came to john the baptist asking if he were Elijah (Jn 1.21); others thought that Jesus Himself might be the Prophet (Mt 16.14; Lk 9.8). And although John denied that he was the Prophet, Christ Himself said of the Baptist: "And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who was to come” (Mt 11.14; cf. 17.10–13). These texts of the Old and New Testaments pose an exegetical problem. According to Christ, John was the long-awaited Elijah; yet the Baptist was obviously not the Prophet himself, for the scriptures have left a detailed account of his birth and parentage. One is compelled, therefore, to ask the question: is the prophecy of Malachi completely fulfilled in John, or is one to look for Elijah himself to reappear in eschatological times? Quite different answers have been given by patristic writers and by contemporary exegetes. Perhaps the clearest statement of the patristic view can be found in Augustine. “As there are two comings of the Judge,” he writes, “there will be two heralds. The [Judge] sent before Him the first herald [John] calling him Elijah, because Elijah would be in the Second Coming what John was in the first” (In evang. Ioh. 4.5). In Augustine’s interpretation, therefore, John was properly called Elijah because he was a symbol, or type, or the eschatological figure who would precede the Second Coming of Christ (see PAROUSIA). Modern exegetes, however, have moved away from this older opinion, convinced that it lacks and solid basis in the Scriptures. The prophecy of Malachi, they believe, is not to be understood literally, but rather of one who has the power of Elijah. That the Baptist fulfilled this prophecy was first vaguely indicated by the angel’s words to Zechariah “…and he himself shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah…” (Lk 1.17). The angel’s veiled hint becomes luminously clear in the words of Christ who declared that John was indeed Elijah. Modern exegesis sees no compelling reason to look for any further fulfillment of the prophecy.

The Liturgy of the Word OLD TESTAMENT READING Reader

Be seated

A reading from the First Book of Kings. Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, "So may the gods do to me, and more also, if I do not make your life like the life of one of them by this time tomorrow." Then he was afraid; he got up and fled for his life, and came to Beer-sheba, which belongs to Judah; he left his servant there. But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a solitary broom tree. He asked that he might die: "It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life, for I am no better than my ancestors." He got up, and ate and drank; then he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights to Horeb the mount of God. At that place he came to a cave, and spent the night there. Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying, "What are you doing here, Elijah?" He answered, "I have been very zealous for the Lord, the God of hosts; for the

8 | HIGH MASS


Israelites have forsaken your covenant, thrown down your altars, and killed your prophets with the sword. I alone am left, and they are seeking my life, to take it away." He said, "Go out and stand on the mountain before the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by." Now there was a great wind, so strong that it was splitting mountains and breaking rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of sheer silence. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. Then there came a voice to him that said, "What are you doing here, Elijah?" He answered, "I have been very zealous for the Lord, the God of hosts; for the Israelites have forsaken your covenant, thrown down your altars, and killed your prophets with the sword. I alone am left, and they are seeking my life, to take it away." Then the Lord said to him, "Go, return on your way to the wilderness of Damascus." 1 Kings 19:1-4 (5-7), 8-15A

THE PSALM

A cantor sings the antiphon first; the people repeat it thereafter.

As the deer longs for the water-brooks, so longs my soul for you, O God. My tears have been my food day and night, while all day long they say to me, "Where now is your God!" Antiphon Why are you so full of heaviness, O my soul? and why are you so disquieted within me? Put your trust in God; for I will yet give thanks to him, who is the help of my countenance, and my God. Antiphon Psalm 42:1, 3, 6-7

THE EPISTLE READING Sub-deacon

A reading from the Letter of Paul to the Galatians. Now before faith came, we were imprisoned and guarded under the law until faith would be revealed. Therefore the law was our disciplinarian until Christ came, so that we might be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer subject to a HIGH MASS | 9


disciplinarian, for in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. As many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:23-29

THE HOLY GOSPEL

All stand and turn to face the book of the Gospels

Then they arrived at the country of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee. As he stepped out on land, a man of the city who had demons met him. For a long time he had worn no clothes, and he did not live in a house but in the tombs. When he saw Jesus, he fell down before him and shouted at the top of his voice, "What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me" for Jesus had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (For many times it had seized him; he was kept under guard and bound with chains and shackles, but he would break 10 | HIGH MASS


the bonds and be driven by the demon into the wilds.) Jesus then asked him, "What is your name?" He said, "Legion"; for many demons had entered him. They begged him not to order them to go back into the abyss. Now there on the hillside a large herd of swine was feeding; and the demons begged Jesus to let them enter these. So he gave them permission. Then the demons came out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned. When the swineherds saw what had happened, they ran off and told it in the city and in the country. Then people came out to see what had happened, and when they came to Jesus, they found the man from whom the demons had gone sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind. And they were afraid. Those who had seen it told them how the one who had been possessed by demons had been healed. Then all the people of the surrounding country of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them; for they were seized with great fear. So he got into the boat and returned. The man from whom the demons had gone begged that he might be with him; but Jesus sent him away, saying, "Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you." So he went away, proclaiming throughout the city how much Jesus had done for him. Luke 8:26-39

All glory be to thee, O Lord our God, who didst make us in thine own image; and, of thy tender mercy, didst give thine only Son Jesus Christ to take our nature upon him, and to suffer death upon the cross for our redemption. He made there a full and perfect sacrifice for the whole world; and did institute, and in his holy Gospel command us to continue, a perpetual memory of that his precious death and sacrifice, until his coming again; who, in the same night that he was betrayed, took bread; and, when he had given thanks to thee, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take, eat, this is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” + Likewise, after supper, he took the cup; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink this, all of you; for this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for you and for many, for the remission of sins: Do this, as oft as ye shall drink it, in remembrance of me.” + Wherefore, O Lord and heavenly Father, we thy people do celebrate and make, with these thy holy gifts which we now offer unto thee, the memorial thy Son hath commanded us to make; having in remembrance his blessed passion and precious death, his mighty resurrection and glorious ascension; and looking for his coming again with power and great glory.

St. James’ News & Announcements PARISH REVIEW UPDATE (3) The preliminary findings of my study leave and the proposed period of review for the Parish have been scrutinized by the Trustees and the Clergy – I am grateful for their support and encouragement. The term ‘sabbatical’ was used initially to describe the fact that I am in my seventh year as Rector. However, ‘sabbatical’ has been mistaken as signifying that I will be taking time away from the Parish this year, which is not planned, nor anticipated. So we will not use the term any further. The remainder of 2013 is an opportunity for a period of review and recommendation at St. James’. During this time the leadership (lay and ordained) of the Parish plan to work together in creating opportunities for us to listen to one another (and the direction of the Holy Spirit), to take stock of where we are in our journey together in Christ and to seek direction as we plan for the next few years. One might say this is an invitation to an exercise in faithfulness. It is as if I were arriving at St. James’ as your new Rector this year. Who and what is the Parish of St. James’? What is our vocation? How shall we offer our spiritual resources, physical resources, Church programmes and personnel (staff, lay leaders and all Church members) to the glory of God and the pursuit of the Kingdom of God? What will be our focus and our priority as we seek to live into our vocation in Christ? What are we being called to leave behind and to give up? What are we being called to take up that is new? What are we being called to maintain and strengthen? It is hoped that by Advent specific recommendations will have emerged and be supported by the Parish. How we ask these questions with deep and

attentive listening I will explore with you in an update later in June. Please speak to me, or the Wardens, directly if you have a query, or would like to support this season of review. Fr. Mark. THANKS FOR YOUR PRESENCE AT THE YOUNG WOLVES LODGE 10TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS Thank you to everyone who attended the 10th Anniversary celebrations of the Coming Home Society’s Young Wolves Lodge.

A MORNING WITH DAVID HALL David Hall is a member of the Auckland Anglican Social Justice Council and has recently become part of the interim Management Committee of the Living Wage Movement, Aotearoa New Zealand. He represents the Anglican Diocese of Auckland on the Auckland Community Development Alliance. He is the author of a number of articles concerning social justice including "Equality, Health, Tax and Welfare", "Inequality: Don't Confuse Me With the Facts", and "One Measure for All". He is a member of St. John's Cooperating Parish, Bucklands Beach, Auckland which involves Anglicans, Presbyterians and Methodists. To read some of David's articles and find out more about his social

justice work on behalf of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa New Zealand, go to the Auckland Diocese website, www.auckanglican.org.nz. We are fortunate to have David in our diocese on July 4. You are invited to engage in dialogue with him and share his vision of the role of the Church in key social justice issues.

Please invite those who are involved in social justice development in your parish. To confirm numbers attending, please email Rev. Margaret Marquardt at mmarquardt@telus.net or Rev. Steve Bailey at sbailey1047@shaw.ca. DO YOU LIKE TO RECORD VIDEO? We are looking for a few volunteers to assist with the video recording of the sermons during Low Mass on Sundays. We’ll show you exactly what to do. It is pretty straight forward. The camera tripod needs to be set in place before the sermon begins, and there are three ‘X’s’ on the floor marking the spot to make it easy. After the sermon the camera needs to be put away. It is a one-person job, but we would like to train several people to ensure that someone is always available. Starting in September, we would also like to record Formation Sessions. Please contact the office ASAP for more information. This is an excellent opportunity for parishioners who are looking for experience and references for their resume.
