Sacred Heart and Our Lady’s CollaborativeNext Weekend, October 5 & 6, Is Commitment WeekendOver the past two weeks, Fr. Dan and fellow parishionersspoke at all Masses this week concerning our IncreasedOffertory Appeal. As Fr. Dan mentioned, we must increaseour regular offertory to support crucial ministries and programs at both Sacred Heart and Our Lady’s. All parishioners are asked to participate in this important effort.How You Can HelpAll registered families have been mailed a brochure describing our Increased Offertory Appeal. It details both theparish’s Offertory history and includes suggested guidelines for increased giving and instructions on how andwhen to participate. Additional brochures and envelopesare available in the church.increased weekly amount that is best for you or your family. Bring the Commitment Envelope to Mass next weekand place it in the regular Offertory collection. Your newlevel of weekly support should begin at that time.Online Giving: We are asking all parishioners to considerOnline Giving. Electronic giving is very convenient. It alsohelps our parishes by replacing seasonal collection variations with more regular, consistent giving.If you will be out-of-town or unable to attend Mass nextweekend, please mail the envelope to the parish office orplace it in the collection the following weekend.The excellence of both Sacred Heart and Our Lady’sis a reflection of God’s generosity and you, thegenerous parishioners. A generous sacrifice, nomatter the size, makes a big difference.Along with the brochure is a Commitment Envelope.Please fill out the inside portion completely, and select anFr. John SassaniHomily Given on September 30, 2007Twenty-Sixth Sunday in Ordinary TimeLiturgical Year CToday’s first reading from Amos was chosen to prepare us to hear the parable of Jesus about the rich manand the poor man. And there is a reading from the Letter of St. James that is often chosen to prepare us forthe Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. There may be a greater connection than there seems betweenthose two readings.By means of this parable that we hear today, Jesus isn’t simply condemning the neglectful contempt that therich man showed toward Lazarus. Jesus is indicating the that faith is aw ay of life that looks in two directions: vertically to God and horizontally to neighbor. Jesus’ idea of faith is both contemplative and active.St. James, a close relative of Jesus, had a similar view of faith. Repeatedly in his brief letter, he calls Christians to not only hear the word – contemplation – but to be doers of the word – action. Faith is not onlywhat we believe about God but how we accept the call of Christ to be his partners in the world.But this partnership isn’t just about action; it is also about prayer. Prayer allows Christ the opportunity toenvision the life of the Kingdom of Heaven, so that – by action – that vision can be enacted. In the Kingdom,no one will be hungry and neglected like Lazarus, because doers of the word assist the poor and neglected.In the Kingdom, no one will be so self-absorbed as to notice another only for personal gain, because doersof the word have the attitude of Christ, who came not to be served, but to serve. In the Kingdom, no one willbe sick, because doers of the word pray for the sick and embody the healing touch of Christ for their wellbeing.St. Theresa has a beautiful prayer about what it means to be doers of the word:Christ has no body now but ours, no hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which helooks on the world with compassion. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.Today, Christ looks on the sick with compassion – through our eyes. Today, his healing touch is given –through our hands.And then there’s Lazarus and the poor. The transformation of poverty, war, prejudice, disease, and so on isChrist’s work, but he has no body now on earth but us. As we gather for the Eucharist today, Christ comes –Body and Blood, personally – so that we can be reinvigorated as His Body, to do his work by enacting thelife of the Kingdom.Homily reflections are available each week online at
