On the contrary, it is the loving ini a ve whereby God encounters us invites usto be part of a great undertaking. He opens before our eyes the horizon of a greater sea and an abundant catch.” ͲHis Holiness, Pope Francis
About twelve years ago myfriend, Fr. Mark Coiro, and Idecided to backpack throughYellowstone National Park.As neither one of us had everdone so before, we decided itwould make sense to hire aguide. Our guide, Tim, helpedus immensely. First of all, helooked at what we were going to place in ourbackpacks and then helped us realize that we wereplanning to take far more than we would need, orwould be comfortable carrying. He reminded us thatwhatever we took with us would be on our backs forfive days. The more we took, the heavier the backpackwould become. Tim helped us understand what wastruly essential for the journey. We left behind thethings we really did not need, and it made the hikingfar more manageable and enjoyable. As we made ourway through the park Tim, of course, took the lead; heknew the trails to take and where we would need tostop for the night. Finally, Tim helped us establish agood pace for hiking. When I took the lead we wenttoo fast, but when Mark took the lead we went at a farmore sustainable pace. Tim talked to us about theterrain we would be facing and how to traverse itsafely. He was an excellent guide.As we journey through life, Christ realizes that we tooneed a guide to traverse through the world. We wouldneed help in understanding what is expected of us. Wewould also need help in discerning what things aretrue and real, and the falsehoods that the world wouldplace before us. The world is ready to send us downpaths and trails that will ultimately bring us harm anddespair. The way of the world is always in oppositionto the way of Christ. But the way of the world is verysubtle in its deceptions and, therefore, much of what itwill teach sounds good and reasonable. And, as such,when we accept the teaching of the world it can makethe ways of Christ seem unfair, harmful, andantiquated. The way of the world is modern andaccepts people and creates toleration. The way ofChrist, in contrast to the world, seems to stymiepeople from achieving their true sense of self. But thatis the power of the world—its ability to feed into aperson’s ego and sense of self-determination. Theworld desires to show us a trail that looks broad andeasy, but it is always the way of destruction anddamnation.Christ again realized that we need a guide to help usstay on the true path. The path of Christ, of course, isnarrow, rocky and difficult. But it is the way ofsalvation—the way that leads us to heaven. It is theway that leads us to our deepest desire which is to bein union with God. And there is only one way toachieve this union with God: that is through Christ.The guide that Christ created to help us find the rightpath and to stay on the path is, of course, the Church.As Catholics, we must believe that the Church Christintended to create is the Roman Catholic Church, andthe Roman Catholic Church only. We see this mostclearly in the story of Pentecost. As the apostles hid inthe upper room out of fear, the Holy Spirit came uponthem like a strong rushing wind. In that moment theyrealized what they were being called to do, and theywent forth to proclaim the Good News of Christ. TheChurch came about through Saint Peter and the otherapostles, by doing the work Christ intended for themto do. But they could not do it alone. It was throughtheir ministry and preaching that the Church wouldexpand and grow. But, more importantly, the workthey did was sustained by the Holy Spirit. The HolySpirit made possible all that would follow as theChurch would grow and expand.The Church exists again for one purpose and that is tocontinue the mission of Christ in the world. The workof the Apostles ensured that Christ’s message wouldnot be lost and, more importantly, would not changethroughout all time. The message of Christ is the sametoday as it was 2,000 years ago. The reason for this isthat there is only one path towards salvation. Each ofus will walk the path differently, but that one paththrough Christ must be the path we all must take.The Church exists to guide us on this path. We oftenwill think we need to take more than we need, but theChurch will call us back to a life of simplicity. We mustrecognize the good things God has given us, but alsorealize that all we receive is not necessarily for us.Rather, we are called to share our good bounty withothers who have less. Many times we will try to walktoo quickly down the path but the Church is there toteach us patience. We need to learn to live in themoment. We need to take time and see what God hasgiven us and how God is present to us. When we rushthrough life, we can miss what is really mostimportant. At times we might want to take a path thatlooks more interesting, or stop at a place that is moreappealing to us. The Church is there to teach us truediscernment—to know which path is best for us.The Church, therefore, speaks to us in a way that wecan always trust, to show us the direction of the pathwe need to take.We will continue this discussion next week.If you have any questions about anything, please donot hesitate to ask firstname.lastname@example.org.Please keep me in your prayers.
Fromour Faith Formation CoordinatorElaine KindlerLiving the Gospel of LifeFather, Forgive we do not know what we doArchbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone, of SanFrancisco, CA, wrote a reasoned response (‘FirstThings’ 6/23/2021) to a ‘Statement of Principles’published by 60 Catholic Democratic members ofCongress.I strongly encourage you to read it. ArchbishopCordileone addresses 15 of the items in thestatement and their adherence to Catholic teachingand social justice.What struck me deeply is that if we are unable toacknowledge the sanctity of human life, and in allcases, stand to promote respect for this sanctity—to defend human life at all stages, ages andconditions—then we are missing the boat no matterhow high and mighty our social justice programsseem to be.The right to life is the foundational human right.“Abortion is the axe laid to the roots of the tree ofhuman life” (Archbishop Cardileone).My heart is so heavy, I can only pray. I offer thislitany, prayed every Friday at 12 noon in CoventryCathedral and around the world.The Litany of Reconciliation (Coventry, England)All have sinned and fallen short of the glory ofGod. -Romans 3:23The hatred which divides nation from nation,race from race, class from class, -Father forgive.The covetous desires of people and nations topossess what is not their own,-Father forgive.The greed which exploits the work of humanhands and lays waste the earth, -Father forgive.Our envy of the welfare and happiness of others,-Father forgive.Our indifference to the plight of the imprisoned,the homeless, the refugee,-Father forgive.The lust which dishonors the bodies of men,women and children,-Father forgive.The pride which leads us to trust in ourselves,and not in God,-Father forgive.Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgivingone another as God in Christ forgave you.-Ephesians 4:32 From our Senior Priest in ResidenceFr. CollettiAll of us create our own world because we needto control ourselves and our world. We try toestablish a fixed, sensible, settled ‘given’ that isbeyond criticism or reexamination. This ‘given’ isintellectual, sociological, economic, political andbelievingcomponents of pre-conceived ideas and visions. Once this is established, it is ourworld and our truth and we judge all otherthings by this template. Things either fit or don’t;makes sense or doesn’t.When Jesus said, “I am the living bread of lifecome down from heaven” and called God HisFather, he drew the contempt of the crowdbecause none of this fit in with their ‘given;’ theirway of seeing things. They could not understand,even from their own history with God, that theyneeded to expect the unexpected. God wasalways full of surprises, shaking people out oftheir comfortable little world.Jesus was perceived as a threat to theirtraditional ‘given,’ so rather than listening andlearning, they killed Him. We need to thinkoutside our safe world with we have created;outside the expected and accepted way to listento and learn from God.There are people in our time who listened andlearned:Oscar Romero – Against Military GovernmentMother Teresa – Against Poverty with CompassionDorothy Day – Supported the NeglectedMohandas Gandhi – Peaceful ResistanceMartin Luther King, Jr. – Dream of EqualityIn today’s second reading from Saint Paul whowrites: “Brothers and sisters you must no longerlive as the Gentiles do you should put away theold self of your former way of life and berenewed created in God’s way in righteousnessand holiness of truth.”In another place, Saint Paul wrote: “Be imitatorsof me as I am of Christ.”We need to get out of our comfort zone, our“given” and enter more deeply into therelationship to which we are called. Look up theword “mindset” and think again what Saint Paulwrote: “Have this mind in you which is in ChristJesus.”
