Pastor’s Notes Once again the Beatitudes are all manifested in the life of Christ. Jesus was the very personification of mercy. He was always extending mercy and forgiveness to those turned to Him. We see it manifested in His healings. We see it manifested in His forgiveness of sinners. And in particular, we see it manifested on the Cross when He prayed for those who were crucifying Him: “Father forgive them, they know not what they do.” Mercy rests in an empathy with those to whom it is shown. Jesus, the sinless One, identified with those to whom He was merciful. He calls us to do the same. To be clean of heart is to love God with undivided allegiance, seeking God’s will in everything, regardless of the cost. Doing the Father’s will was what Jesus’ life was all about. Again Jesus is the model of what it means to be so single hearted. To paraphrase many of the saints, to be clean of heart is to do God’s will because it is God’s will for as long as it is God’s will without any other motives. Jesus sought the Father’s will in all things without considering the consequences, and He calls us to do likewise. The Hebrew concept of peace means more than an absence of conflict. It means that everything is right ordered. A peacemaker is one who seeks to restore harmony and bring about reconciliation. What greater manifestation can there be of a peacemaker but Christ, Himself, who through his passion, death, and resurrection has restored the right-relationship between God and the human race? Throughout His public ministry, Jesus through His healings and his acts of forgiveness was constantly restoring people to their right place in society. Of course, Jesus is the model of what it means to be persecuted for sake of righteousness. People insulted Him and persecuted Him for speaking the truth. They put Him to death even though all of His actions were good and loving. Yet, it was in His Passion and death that Christ achieved victory. That is the model that Jesus holds out for us. The chosen people were called to be a light for the nations. They were to lead others to the worship of the true God and the keeping of God’s commands. Jesus fulfilled this mission in His life and is the true Light of the World. In calling us to imitate Him by living the life of the Beatitudes, Christ calls us His disciples to be light for the world. By imitating Christ we are to be the salt that not only gives flavor to life but preserves the goodness that God has given to us. By living out the Beatitudes as Christ manifested them, the world will see our good deeds as not our own works but as those of Christ working through us and give praise and glory to the Father.

FEBRUARY 5, 2017______ THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE

As children we sang the lively song This Little Light of Mine. The words, of course, are based on today’s Gospel, in which we are called as disciples to be salt and light for the world. Children are uninhibited about sharing their faith. It’s only when we grow older that we prefer to hide our light under a bushel basket because our culture tends not to emphasize discipleship. The message in this week’s readings is clear: in order to give glory to God through our discipleship, we must show the light of Christ in our words and deeds. Not an easy thing for inhibited adults. Often we may think of salt and light in terms of what we do for others, but it can be just as important not to do something, such as getting angry with the stranger on the road, or telling an offensive joke.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION When the custom of the stational liturgies was revived in the city of Rome in the early days of the twentieth century, the papal liturgy for Good Friday was appropriately housed in the stational church of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme, the Holy Cross of Jerusalem. The church is off the tourist track today, but true pilgrims would never miss it. It stands on the grounds of the Sessorian Palace, the home of the Empress St. Helena, mother of Constantine. She dedicated her life to finding the true cross of Christ in Jerusalem, and desired to found a church in Rome for people who could not make the long and dangerous trip to the Holy Land. Eventually, it came to house relics of the cross. When the pope fled the city of Rome for Avignon, the religious institutions of Rome collapsed and the church was abandoned. Centuries later it was given into the care of monks. Amazingly, it concealed a forgotten treasure. In 1492 repairmen took down a brick wall and discovered a niche with the inscription “Title of the Cross,” and within, an ancient wooden tablet on which was carved the inscription dictated by Pilate for the cross of Christ in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek. No one is certain that this is authentic, although its discovery was enough to give the church great prestige among pilgrims. The veneration of the relic of the cross located here was a factor in shaping our restored Holy Week. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
