In the ancient world, to receive the emissary of some great personage was the same thing as receiving that personage him- or herself. Thus, if you treated that emissary well the king or queen who sent them would hold you in esteem. If you mistreated that emissary, it would have been the same as mistreating the king or queen and you would have found yourself in a lot of “hot water”. The greater the king or queen, the more you could expect to be rewarded for treating their emissaries well. Likewise, the greater the king or queen the more you could expect to be punished for not receiving their emissaries. For an individual, such mistreatment could lead to death. For a country, it might mean war. Therefore, those who heard Jesus’ words in today’s gospel passage would have known right away what He was saying. There is no greater one than God. To honor God’s emissaries in the least way leads to blessedness because to do so means that that person is acknowledging God. To honor God’s representative is not simply to honor God, but to place one’s faith in God. To show an act of love to even the least of God’s representatives is to show love of God. The widow in the first reading knew Elisha to be “a holy man of God”. She obviously loved and respected God and therefore wanted to do something for God’s prophet. Her motivation in arranging a place for Elisha to stay was motivated by that love and respect for God. She didn’t do what she did because she expected to be rewarded but instead acted as she did because she knew it to be the right thing to do: She loved God therefore she must love God’s prophet. Impressed by her faith, Elisha interceded for her and was able to prophesy that she would be rewarded: she would receive the gift of a son.

SAINTS AND SPECIAL OBSERVANCES:

Sunday: Monday: Tuesday: Wednesday: Thursday: Friday: Saturday:

Jesus is not telling His Apostles, and us, that we should do works of charity in order to be rewarded. Instead, He is telling us that if we truly love God above all things, even our own families, then we will do good works because of that love for God. It is in giving, and specifically in giving of ourselves, that we find reward. In so loving and giving we open ourselves up to the greatest gift we can receive: divine life, sanctifying grace. And in opening ourselves up to that grace we put ourselves on the path that leads to eternal life. Conversely, by not loving God, by sinning, we close ourselves off from that life and find only unhappiness, despair, and ultimately eternal death.

Once again, we see the dynamic of the two great commandments. It is impossible to love God with our whole being unless we love our neighbors as ourselves. It is impossible to love our neighbors as ourselves without first loving God.

FATHER THOMAS HAMM, JR. PASTOR

JULY 2, 2017________

THE RICHNESS OF LIFE IN CHRIST Today we have the beautiful story of the woman promised a child, the wonderful exhortation about life in Christ, and a powerful instruction from Jesus. An embarrassment of riches? Not if we take Jesus' words about "welcome" to heart. The many challenges and blessings offered to us today by Elisha, Paul, and Jesus should be cause for rejoicing, and welcomed heartily into our lives. And, like the great treat that they are, they should be enjoyed and shared generously with others. Today's reading from Romans was chosen very early in the liturgical life of the Church to be the sole apostolic instruction received by candidates for baptism at the Easter Vigil. This illustrates its importance as a core belief, and as a means of comprehending the story of the Resurrection. Christ's resurrection is not merely a story about something that he underwent once upon a time, but it is our story, the story of how we joined the other members of the one Body of Christ, the church. We were not only dead, but we were buried; not ultimately buried, but raised to eternal life with Christ. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION It’s Independence Day week, and there is a link worth tracing between the Declaration of Independence and the language of liturgy. One of the signers of the Declaration on that July 4 long ago was Charles Carroll, probably the wealthiest man in the colonies and one of the few Catholics on the political scene. As a flourish to his signature, he sought to distinguish himself from other prominent citizens bearing the same name by penning “Charles Carroll of Carrolltown”—a defiant “come and get me if you dare” postscript aimed at the British. Carroll’s brother John was a priest and patriot who in 1789 was given the task of organizing the Catholic Church in this country. By 1791 he had assembled a synod, or assembly of delegates, to launch that task formally. Archbishop Carroll wanted to gain acceptance of our faith by American people who mistrusted our customs and could not comprehend our liturgy. He made the amazing proposal to Rome that our liturgy should be prayed not in Latin, but in the vernacular, English. His wish was denied, but one hundred sixty years later, his deep desire helped the American bishops and scholars at the Second Vatican Council to win the vote in favor of the vernacular not just for the United States, but for the Church throughout the world. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
