Pastor’s Notes “Behold the Lamb of God!” When they heard John the Baptist proclaim these words two of John’s followers immediately left him to follow Jesus. There is little question that they were searching for a new relationship with God although they may not as yet been able to put it into so many words. Jesus reading their hearts immediately asks them “What are you looking for?” Their reply, “Rabbi, where are you staying?” might seem to suggest that Jesus’ question left them a little a little “tongue-tied”. Yet, it may also point to their desire to spend time with Jesus and get to know the one their former teacher called "the Lamb of God”. Jesus’ reply “Come and see” applies to us as much as it did to Andrew and his companion. Jesus is constantly inviting us to come and get to know Him better. He wants to spend time with us. He wants to inspire in us that fervor manifested by Andrew. The better we come to know Christ the better we will come to love and server Him. Further the more we come to love and serve Him, the more we will desire to share our love of Christ with others. Once again we are to follow the example of Andrew. Andrew having spent the day with Jesus is filled with an uncontained joy. It is joy which he has to share with someone else. Andrew is filled with a discovery that he wants to let others know about. He is sure that in Jesus he has found the long awaited Messiah. He is sure that all of his dreams and all the dreams of his people are about to be fulfilled. He is excited. He is exuberant. Nothing can stop him from telling others about Christ beginning with his own brother. Even though Jesus has yet to call him to be an apostle, Andrew is already filled with apostolic zeal to spread the Good News. As Saint John Chrysostom pointed out, the Gospel does not necessary imply that Simon believed immediately because of what his brother told him. Instead it says that Andrew brought Simon to Jesus. It was enough for Andrew’s proclamation to inspire Simon to seek to learn more about Christ, himself. So it is with us. It is not our responsibility to turn everyone we meet into a fervent follower of Christ but instead to bring them to Jesus so that they may open themselves up to His grace and come on their own to know and love Him as we do. The important thing is that we act in the spirit of Andrew and not attempt to hide our love and knowledge of Christ. Bringing others to Jesus, in whatever way we may be called to do it, is the primary way we all can evangelize others. Father Tom SUN.

FATHER THOMAS HAMM, JR. PASTOR

JANUARY 14, 2018________ THE LAMB OF GOD

“Behold the Lamb of God!” We hear this phrase every Sunday at Mass, but there’s a good chance that many Roman Catholics do not know who in the Bible originally spoke it. The phrase appears only in the Gospel of John, on the lips of John the Baptist, who utters it twice. In today’s Gospel reading, John proclaims Jesus as the Lamb of God, and two of John’s own disciples then follow Christ. A little bit later Andrew, who heard John and then followed Jesus, brings his brother Simon to be re-named Cephas, or Peter. A careful look at these Bible verses shows us the mission of everyone baptized into the Body of Christ: we must always proclaim our faith in Christ, so that others will follow him. We may not know how the will of God might work through those we bring to Christ; that is not the point. The point is that our ongoing mission as a church is to bring others to Christ, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc. PSR CLASSES TODAY.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION

Ordinary Time” began for us this week. On the old calendar, the feast of the Presentation, still more than two weeks away, was the last day of the Christmas season. Sadly, Bethlehem is hardly a place of peace on earth these days. The ancient Christian community has been largely uprooted by political strife. The Church of the Nativity stands (barely) in remarkable disrepair and disorder in Manger Square. The roof is crumbling, the major doorways are blocked, the wiring is faulty, and the worship life is disrupted by quarrels among Eastern Christians. The church was founded by the Emperor Constantine in 325, destroyed in a Samaritan revolt in 539, and rebuilt by the Emperor Justinian. When the area came under Muslim control in 638, the holiness of the church was respected, and in return Christians allowed Muslims to pray in the south aisle, a right still upheld. Earlier in that century, invading Persians were ordered to destroy all churches, but when they saw the magi carved over the doorway of the Church of the Nativity, they spared it out of respect for their ancestors who bore gold, frankincense, and myrrh to the same city. The Crusaders restored and redecorated the church by the twelfth century, and it is their plan that survives. Down a few stone steps is a stone grotto with a silver star marking the place of Christ’s birth: when the star was stolen in 1847 it triggered an international crisis that exploded into the Crimean War. Since 1852, the church has been shared by the Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, and Armenian Churches. The Greeks are in charge of the grotto, but don’t enjoy the best of friendships with the Armenians. Catholics have the care of the Chapel of the Manger, and avoid the squabbles by a separate entrance to the Franciscan monastery church of St. Catherine. Pray for peace in Bethlehem! —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
