Pastor’s Notes This year as we celebrate our parish patron, Saint Louis IX of France, it might be well to reflect on the meaning of our church building, dedicated in his honor. As Saint Augustine pointed out centuries ago, while St. Louis Church may well be our local house of prayer, we have to remember that we too are a house of God. Just as our church building took much effort to build and continues to require much effort and expense to maintain, Augustine said “if we are a house of God, its construction goes on in time so that it may be dedicated at the end of time. The house, in its construction, involves hard word, while its dedication [the attainment of heaven] is an occasion for rejoicing.” St. Augustine goes on to explain that just as craftsman shaped the materials needed to build our church building, we the members of the Church are shaped by the sacraments and good Christian formation to form an attractive and functioning dwelling for God that will draw others to Christ. Just as no one would want to enter Saint Louis Church if it looked like it was ready to fall down, no one will want to approach Christ through us if we fail to live our lives according to the values we claim. If we as a body and as individuals fail to love our neighbors as ourselves, fail to allow Christ’s teachings to guide us in our homes and workplaces, fail to be a light for others, then we would be analogous to our church building stripped of everything but its four walls and bell tower. From a distance it might look ok, but close up it would be nothing but a ruin attractive to none but archeologists and history buffs. As another early Christian writer, Origen, pointed out no building can stand unless it has a solid foundation. This of course applies to us as well if we are to be a house of God. Our principle foundation stone must always be Christ and if we keep ourselves firmly rooted in His teachings and on those of the Church He built we have nothing to worry about. However, we know that if we were to fail to maintain the foundation of St. Louis Church, sooner or later we would have major problems. Walls would crack, doors would jam, pipes would leek and even the ceiling might fall in. Similarly, if we fail to maintain our spiritual foundation or try to substitute something other than Christ for our anchoring stone we will fall down as Christians. We are about to begin our project of rewiring the Saint Louis Church building. This construction work might inspire us to consider how we may need some “rewiring” in our spiritual lives. Christ is our light, but sometimes we allow our faith in Him to dim. If we are sincere in attempting to grow closer to Christ, then we always need to take whatever steps we need to maintain our relationship with Him so that we can follow Jesus in the way that leads to eternal life.

FATHER THOMAS HAMM, JR. PASTOR

AUGUST 27, 2017________ BE A ROCK

Peter’s history as a follower or friend of Jesus is a bit spotty. It might be natural to wonder if Jesus, in giving him the keys to the kingdom, didn’t feel a bit like a parent giving a teenager the keys to the family car. But it was at the moment when God’s power and presence broke through everything else to raise up Peter’s great profession of faith in Christ as Messiah that Jesus chose to establish the bond between the loving, forgiving mercy of heaven and our vocation to be witnesses of that love, mercy, and forgiveness on earth. Like any parent, Jesus no doubt foresaw the failings, the irresponsible maneuvers or impaired senses, the collisions that the church would be headed for. But, most importantly, he also saw us at that moment as God prefers to see us: capable of manifesting great faith, with a willingness to remain at the feet of Christ to understand what it truly means to be Messiah and Christ. As the letter to the Romans points out to us today, we have not known the mind or the wisdom of God, but God knows us and still chooses to manifest the reign of justice, joy, beauty, and peace through us. Let this be our vocation. Let us always strive to be solid ground on which the church of Jesus Christ can be founded and on which it can continue to be built. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION Eucharistic Prayer II is a popular choice for Mass since it is both simple in structure and short. It is written with a preface, which is the section after the dialogue “The Lord be with you . . . Lift up your hearts . . . Let us give thanks,” which introduces all the Eucharistic Prayers. The preface states the reason for the eucharistic assembly on that occasion, and there are dozens of them covering almost every imaginable gathering for prayer, some specific to feasts, others for Masses for the dead or for other needs. The preface attached to the second Eucharistic Prayer may be dropped in favor of a more appropriate choice, especially one of the prefaces for weekdays. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal says that Eucharistic Prayer II is best suited for weekdays or “special circumstances.” In practice, however, it has become the common Sunday prayer because of its brevity and its comfortable familiarity. It also includes an optional phrase for adding the name of a deceased person remembered in the Mass, and therefore is often prayed at funerals. Article 50 of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy specified that the rites are to be simplified and restored “to the vigor they had in the tradition of the Fathers.” The rebirth of this ancient Roman prayer is a worthy response to this call. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
