Father George's Weekly Message


The Pastoral Guide, by Pope St Gregory the Great
Let the pastor be discreetly silent, and to the point when he speaks

A spiritual guide should be silent when discretion requires and speak when words are of service. Otherwise he may say what he should not or be silent when he should speak. Indiscreet speech may lead men into error and an imprudent si-lence may leave in error those who could have been taught. Pastors who lack fore-sight hesitate to say openly what is right because they fear losing the favor of men. As the voice of truth tells us, such leaders are not zealous pastors who protect their flocks, rather they are like mercenaries who flee by taking refuge in silence when the wolf appears.
The Lord reproaches them through the prophet: They are dumb dogs that cannot bark. On another occasion he complains: You did not advance against the foe or set up a wall in front of the house of Israel, so that you might stand fast in battle on the day of the Lord. To advance against the foe involves a bold re-sistance to the powers of this world in defense of the flock. To stand fast in battle on the day of the Lord means to oppose the wicked enemy out of love for what is right.
When a pastor has been afraid to assert what is right, has he not turned his back and fled by remaining silent? Whereas if he intervenes on behalf of the flock, he sets up a wall against the enemy in front of the house of Israel. Therefore, the Lord again says to his unfaithful people: Your prophets saw false and foolish vi-sions and did not point out your wickedness, that you might repent of your sins. The name of the prophet is sometimes given in the sacred writings to teach-ers who both declare the present to be fleeting and reveal what is to come. The word of God accuses them of seeing false visions because they are afraid to re-proach men for their faults and they consequently lull the evildoer with an empty promise of safety. Because they fear reproach, they keep silent and fail to point out the sinner’s wrongdoing.
The word of reproach is a key that unlocks a door, because reproach reveals a fault of which the evildoer is himself often unaware. That is why Paul says of the bishop: He must be able to encourage men in sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it. For the same reason God tells us through Malachi: The lips of the priest are to preserve knowledge, and men shall look to him for the law, for he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts. Finally, that is also the reason why the Lord warns us through Isaiah: Cry out and be not still; raise your voice in a trumpet call.
Anyone ordained a priest undertakes the task of preaching, so that with a loud cry he may go on ahead of the terrible judge who follows. If, then, a priest does not know how to preach, what kind of cry can such a dumb herald utter? It was to bring this home that the Holy Spirit descended in the form of tongues on the first pastors, for he causes those whom he has filled, to speak out spontaneously.
[From office of Reading 27th Sunday]
CROSS CATHOLIC OUTREACH: Please welcome Father Patrick Collins who will speak all the Masses on behalf of Cross Catholic Outreach which was founded to create a meaningful link between parishes in America and the priests and nuns working in the Church overseas in the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Central and South America. Please be generous in your response to Father’s appeal. Brochures will be provided if you wish to support this worthy Catholic ministry.
CHRISTIAN SERVICE BENEFIT SHOWER: I thank members of the Chris-tian Service and Book Club for a successful organization of this year’s benefit shower. I especially thank all donors for your generosity and gifts for the needy at safe place. Thanks to the ladies who were present at the event. The parish is grateful for your service especially the gift of your time and resources.

 

 

Holy Name of Mary Announcements:

SPECIAL THANKS: HNOM Book Club and Christian Ser-vice Committee would like to thank everyone who helped make our 6th Annual Benefit Shower such a success! We are happy to report that we had 55 attendees this year, who were treated to a delicious luncheon, great prizes, and a guest speaker who provided us with a lot of valuable information. Most importantly, Huron County Safe Place received 3 car-loads of material donations, in addition to a car-load of dona-tions from the Daughters of Isabella that was delivered prior to the shower. Also received was $335 in monetary donations and $435 in gift cards/TAT Bus tickets. Thanks again to eve-ryone who made this possible! Plans for next year’s benefit are already being discussed, so stay tuned!
HOG DONATIONS REQUESTED- Donations toward hogs/pork for the Ham and Sausage dinner are needed. If you are willing to donate, please contact Tammy Holdwick at 989-550-1988 after 6:00 pm. Thank you.
CRAFT ITEMS NEEDED- Craft Items will be needed for the Craft Table at the Ham and Sausage dinner. All parish members are encouraged to contribute craft items. The din-ner will be held on October 27, so there is still time to com-plete craft projects. Craft Items of all types are appreciated. You may drop them off at the parish office or at the Parish Center.

DINNER WORK SCHEDULE: The Ham and Sausage Dinner work assignments and raffle tickets are available. If at all possible, please pick up your envelope so we can avoid postage costs. Thanks.
END DISMEMBERMENT ABORTION: A statewide sig-nature gathering effort is now underway to ban the dismem-berment abortion procedure, also known as Dilation and Evacuation. Over the next few months, the signatures of 400,000 registered voters in the state are needed to bring this measure before Michigan lawmakers. Volunteers will be collecting signatures for the petition after all Masses the weekends of October 12th/13th. More information on the drive and how to get involved is available at www.micatholic.org/MichiganValuesLife/.
