Father George's Weekly Message

Pope Francis, on September 30, 2019 instituted the Third Sunday of Ordinary Time as Sunday of the Word of God. This is the first time a Sunday has been dedicated to the Word of God. In instituting this Sunday, the Pope in-tends that all Christian communities, in their own way, will be drawn anew to contemplate and recognize the importance of the word of God in their lives and how central it is to unity. In the letter of institution, Aperuit Illis, the Pope states, “The Bible is the book of the Lord’s people, who, in listening to it, move from dispersion and division towards unity. The word of God unites believers and makes them one people” (paragraph 4).
The Word of God is central to who we are as believers, because “the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us” (John 1:14); the Word is Jesus Christ. Jesus himself demonstrates this truth when on the way to Emmaus, he explained the scriptures to them in this way: “Beginning with Moses and all the prophets, [Jesus] interpreted to them the things about himself in scrip-tures” (Luke 24:27). The word of God is so important that St. Jerome says, ‘Ignorance of scripture is ignorance of Christ’, Pope Francis recalls. Focusing on scriptures, therefore is focusing on Christ Jesus. Therefore, preeminence must be given to the word of God. In scriptures you find Jesus – the source of life.
Perusing through the Bible, you will notice how important the word of God is to us. In Ephesians Paul says; “In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield, to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (6:16-17); Further, Paul tells Timothy, “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that one who belongs to God may be competent, equipped for every good work” (2 Tim 3:16-17). Therefore, the importance of scriptures in our lives cannot be overemphasized. The Word of God Sunday is designed to give prominence to this reality.
BLESSING OF LECTORS: As part of celebrating the Sunday of the Word of God at all the weekend masses, special blessings will be bestowed on all lectors and readers. We recognize and applaud this role of proclaiming the Word of God to the Christian assembler during our liturgical celebrations. At the same time, we call on parishioners to consider serving our faith communi-ty in this ministry or others.
Some of the youth of our parish particularly the 8th graders and some of their parents attended the National March for Life at Washington DC. Ron Wolschleger, John Howison and I were part of the group representing our parish. We were part of the Saginaw Diocesan participants for the March for Life on Friday January 24. While we thank them for the bold statement for who we are, we pray for God’s protection on all persons who attended the program. But above all, we pray for the legal protection of the most vulnera-ble in our society, especially the unborn children.
