Fourth Sunday of Ordinary Time

January 29, 2023

The beatitudes that Jesus taught were not laws but graces that carried promises of exaltation, fulfillment, fruitfulness, or glory.  These attitudes and actions assure us access to the coming Kingdom. They are possible because Jesus empowers us from within.  It is His living the beatitudes in us that make us the light of the world, attracting others to the Father by our good deeds.

Jesus is the new Moses who ascended the mountain to proclaim the law of the Kingdom.  However, He said He did not abolish the old law, but fulfilled it.  He fulfills the law and its meaning by interpreting it.  His interpreting principles, were the two great commandments—love of God and love of neighbor.  Love alone determined how all the laws precepts were to be applied.

Jesus not only speaks about fulfilling the law, He does it.  Jesus is the supremely happy man, who invites us to follow Him and share His happiness.  In the old testament God showed people of Israel that He wanted to save them from the evils that were destroying them.  Jesus was to accomplish this through His Passion, Death and Resurrection.  Now in the New Testament Jesus’s teaching of love and mercy are key for applying God’s law.  Without this key, peoples efforts to do God’s will become misguided and futile.

Jesus basically calls us to be happy.  He then shows us how to live our life in such a way as to accomplish true happiness—the eternal happiness in Heaven.

God Bless

Nothing Compares to Being There

“I have greatly desired to eat this Supper with you.” cf. Luke 22:15

All of us know instinctively that nothing compares to “being there” in person. Whether it’s being at a friend’s wedding, sitting down to have a heart-to-heart conversation, comforting a family member while she is grieving or watching as your baby takes his first steps, we all know that being physically present makes all the difference. The same logic applies to our life as Catholics. Especially when it comes to the Mass, truly, nothing compares to being there.

Those who are sick or compromised due to health conditions are not to come to church. We will continue to live stream Mass on Saturday evening at 530pm. The link will be on our website and will be available all day Sunday. We will follow our regular Mass schedule 4pm vigil and 8am-10am and noon on Sunday. Daily Mass at 9am is in the main church.
