The Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time

June 23, 2013

Jesus: Who do you say that I am?

Last Thursday evening, a joint meeting of the pastoral team, wardens, pastoral council, and liturgy committee was held in the parish hall. We began by doing what Catholics love most to do when they get together eat! sharing a delicious potluck supper that reflected the diverse cultures and nations that make up our parish. We then moved to the rectory and, after a time of prayer, watched together a video of one of Pope Francis recent homilies: Joy Is a Sign of Christian Freedom, and used this as a springboard for group sharing on what brings us joy in our faith and what empowers us to share this joy with others. We then discussed the challenge of the new evangelization placed before us in this Year of Faith. Again inspired by Pope Francis Pentecost Vigil homily to the members of lay movements in the Church, we proposed a three-year journey focused first on the encounter of Jesus, then on deepening a relationship with Jesus in Prayer and Sacramental Living, leading to a fuller embrace of what it means to give Witness to our faith in the world and share in the mission of the Church. Jesus, Prayer, Witness quite the program!! In todays Gospel, Jesus asks the disciples two questions. The first is generic: Who do the crowds say I am? Then he makes it personal: Who do YOU say I am? The world has all different kinds of opinions about the Catholic Church, about the Christian faith, and even about Jesus. But who do WE say Jesus is? Have we met him and formed a deep friendship with him in his Word, in prayer, in the sacraments, in the joys and challenges of our daily life? We can only bear witness if we ourselves have had a personal, lifechanging encounter with Jesus. To help launch this process and set a fire under us, Fr. Guylain Prince, a dynamic Franciscan preacher and biblical scholar, will be leading our community on a retreat day this coming Saturday, September 21st. Please mark this day in your schedules, and plan to join in this exciting event. Have a wonderful summer!
