Lessons from Today’s Readings (2017)

Posted on Updated on

“The way we may be sure that we know Him is to keep His Commandments. Those who say, “I know Him,” but do not keep His Commandments are liars, and the Truth is not in them. But whoever keeps His Word, the love of God is truly perfected in Him.” – 1 John 2:3-5

These are the words of our Lesson at Mass today. We are reminded that Christ is risen, and that He is risen in His Body the Church, and that is ALL of us. By our Baptism, we have been made a part of His Mystical Body, and our vocation in life is to live the message of Christ, Who is alive and desires all to come to Him for salvation. St. John reminds us that if we say we love God, we must follow God, we must do His Will. And what is His Will? John tells us that we keep His Commandments. St. Peter will say to those who hear him speak, “Repent, therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be wiped away.” (Acts 3:19) In other passages, he will say, “Repent and be baptized so that your sins might be washed away.” For us, the Easter message in many ways is linked to …prayer, fasting and charity. If our lives are oriented to this, then the natural outflow of our life will be to live and obey the Commandments of God. Jesus was made known to the disciples on the road to Emmaus after they showed Him charity, by constraining Him to come and stay with them because it was getting late. In showing kindness to a stranger, the Lord revealed His presence among them and they became witnesses of His resurrection. In the Gospel lesson from Luke 24:46, Jesus says: “Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins, would be preached in His Name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.” We always seem to come back to that idea of repentance. And just what is repentance? A turning away from my will and my idea of what is up or down, right or left, good or bad, to listen to the voice of Christ. May God help us as we go through this Easter season to make the risen Christ known where we work, where we live, among our family and friends. How do we do this? By keeping His Commandments. What is the first and greatest Commandment? To love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is like to it: Love your neighbor as yourself.

The Power of Christ’s Blood: Homily for Good Friday by St. John Chrysostom

Posted on Updated on

    If we wish to understand the power of Christ’s Blood, we should go back to the ancient account of its prefiguration in Egypt: “Sacrifice a lamb without blemish,” commanded Moses, “and sprinkle its blood on your doors.” If we were to ask him what he meant, and how the blood of an irrational beast could possibly save men endowed with reason, his answer would be that the saving power lies not in the blood itself, but in the fact that it is a sign of the Lord’s Blood. In those days, when the destroying angel saw the blood on the doors he did not dare to enter, so how much less will the devil approach now when he sees, not that figurative blood on the doors, but the true Blood on the lips of believers, the doors of the Temple of Christ.

    If you desire further proof of the power of this Blood, remember where It came from, how It ran down from the Cross, flowing from the Master’s side. The Gospel records that when Christ was dead, but still hung on the cross, a soldier came and pierced his side with a lance and immediately there poured out water and blood. Now the Water was a symbol of Baptism and the Blood, of the Holy Eucharist. The soldier pierced the Lord’s side, he breached the wall of the Sacred Temple, and I have found the Treasure and made it my own. So also with the Lamb: the Jews sacrificed the Victim and I have been saved by It.

    “There flowed from His side water and blood.” Beloved, do not pass over this mystery without thought; it has yet another hidden meaning, which I will explain to you. I said that Water and Blood symbolized Baptism and the Holy Eucharist. From these two Sacraments the Church is born: from Baptism, the cleansing water that gives rebirth and renewal through the Holy Spirit, and from the Holy Eucharist. Since the symbols of Baptism and the Eucharist flowed from His side, it was from His side that Christ fashioned the Church, as He had fashioned Eve from the side of Adam. Moses gives a hint of this when he tells the story of the first man and makes him exclaim: “Bone from my bones and flesh from my flesh!” As God then took a rib from Adam’s side to fashion a woman, so Christ has given us Blood and Water from His Side to fashion the Church. God took the rib when Adam was in a deep sleep, and in the same way Christ gave us the Blood and the Water after His own Death.

    Do you understand, then, how Christ has united His Bride to Himself and what food He gives us all to eat? By one and the same Food we are both brought into being and nourished. As a woman nourishes her child with her own blood and milk, so does Christ unceasingly nourish with His own blood those to whom He Himself has given life.

@ St. Catharine Catholic Church, West Lake Avenue, Spring Lake, New Jersey 07762 7:30 – 9 PM Annual Diocesan Tenebrae Service.  Tenebrae, meaning darkness or shadows, is an ancient service that is prayed and sung, commemorating the Death of Jesus through psalms, lessons and chants expressing grief. A principal element of the service is the extinguishing of 15 candles, reflecting the desertion of the Apostles and three days of darkness following Christ’s Death. The candles are displayed in a triangular stand. The candle at the top, symbolizing Christ, remains lit but is hidden behind or under the altar during the closing prayer, symbolizing Christ’s burial. When the prayer is completed, a loud noise is made representing the earthquake that followed Christ’s Death on the Cross. The lit candle is returned to its place, symbolizing Christ’s victory over death. The noise ceases and the congregation departs the church in silence. Please join us for this unique prayer experience during Holy Week. All are welcome and encouraged to bring family or friends!
