Pastor’s Notes Jesus has given us the Beatitudes. He has called us to be salt and light for the world. Now in this next part of His “Sermon on the Mount”, Jesus begins to explore what the Law really means. He begins by telling His disciples that He has not come to abolish the Law and the prophets but to fulfill them. In so speaking Jesus is claiming that everything anticipated in the Hebrew Scriptures is fulfilled in His person. All of the Torah and Prophetic writings point to Jesus, His entire life, passion, death, and resurrection. Jesus is also implying that the Hebrew Scriptures point directly to His teaching. Jesus is to be the One authentic, that is, authoritative interpreter of the Scriptures. From now on everyone must follow Jesus’ lead in teaching the precepts contained therein. To do less would be to break the commandments and teach others to do so. Jesus calls for a righteousness that exceeds that of the Scribes and the Pharisees. He stresses that keeping the Law as God intends it to be kept means more than an external observance. To truly keep the Law requires that it be kept from the heart. True righteousness is something that comes from deep within a person and influences everything that that person thinks, does, and says. Jesus emphasizes this by giving the “great antitheses” (“You have heard it said…but I say to you). Each of these expresses how keeping the specific commandment comes from deep within the person. One has to remove from one’s life every thought or action that could lead that person to kill, commit adultery, etc. To keep the commandment “Thou shalt not kill” we have to eliminate from our lives all prejudice, anger, hatred, in fact anything that would make us look down on another person. To avoid committing adultery, we have to avoid anything that would make us see the other person as an object which is there solely for our own pleasure. In short, to keep the commandments means that we always look at the other person as one like ourselves, made in the image and likeness of God. We must see the other as an end in himself or herself, never as a means to our ends. Failure to do so means that we break the commandments even if we never physically kill someone or commit an act of adultery. In our hearts we have already done so by stripping that other person of his or her humanity and seeing them as being no different than a tool for our use. Jesus preaching to Galilean Jews, probably did not really expect anyone offering sacrifice in Jerusalem to leave their gifts there and return hundreds miles to their homes in Galilee to reconcile with another person. He almost certainly did not really mean that people should maim themselves to avoid sin. But Jesus used these extreme examples to underscore the importance of avoiding the slightest occasion for sin. For His disciples, keeping the Law was not observing some arbitrary precepts. It was a way of life leading one to love others as God wills us to

FEBRUARY 12, 2017______ CHOICE

“If you choose you can keep the commandments,” Sirach tells us. God “has set before you fire and water; to whichever you choose, stretch forth your hand” (Sirach 15:15, 16). This is a great mystery: God does not control us so completely that we cannot choose our own path. We have certain boundaries, of course, but no one but we can choose our way within those boundaries. In today’s reading from Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus reminds us of our freedom and our responsibility for our lives. He calls us to look beyond the words of the commandments, all the way to their meaning. Look beyond the adultery to the selfishness that poisons our love. Look beyond the murder to the anger that eats away at our compassion. Look beyond the perjured testimony to the lies and deception that drive our behavior. Our vocation is to choose life for ourselves, and to choose a path through our part of the world that helps make life possible and more abundant for others as well. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

Have you ever wished you could offer your gifts and talents to do more in the Church? If you have, then maybe you should consider the vocation to the Diaconate. A permanent deacon is either a single or married man ordained for service (if married must be 35 years old at time of ordination with the permission of his wife). Deacon in Greek, diakonia, refers to one who is called to service and comes to us from the sixth chapter of the Acts of the Apostles, where seven men are called to service. 2016 CONTRIBUTION RECORDS: If you need a complete record of your 2016 church contribution records for tax purposes, please call the rectory @ (740) 446-0669.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION By the early 1950s some scholars were calling for the restoration of Communion of the faithful on Good Friday, since by then only a priest received, consuming the host from the Holy Thursday repository. In 1955 the new Good Friday liturgy was timed to begin at three o’clock everywhere, and included the option of Holy Communion, but without the Precious Blood that had originally been part of the liturgy. Today, there is increasing debate among theologians. Some feel that it would be better to fast from the Eucharist on Good Friday, focusing on the mystery of the cross and highlighting the Easter Communion. Others say that this Communion infuses the sadness of the day with awareness of Christ’s victory. It is not a day of mourning, of course, and the Passion according to John grounds the liturgy in a sense of Christ’s victory over death and the triumph of the cross. The tradition is rich and varied, and we are still in the early stages of recovering an ancient way of doing things. Why do we call the day “good”? The English and Dutch languages share this name, and its origin stems from the name “God’s Friday.” The traditional name for the day in Latin is Feria VI in Parasceve, which translates as “The Sixth Day of the Week of Preparation.” Other languages make do with “Holy Friday.” In another part of England, as in Denmark, the people used to call it “Long Friday,” a good description for a quiet day without work and no chance for play or a good meal! —Rev.
