Fr. George's Corner:

Fr. George’s Weekly Message: Building the Body of Christ: The Church
Christ is the head of the Church His body, and we are all members. This bonding into the one body of Christ is brought about by the action of the one Spirit irrespective of our origin, state of life, or personality (see 1 Corinthians 12:13). Our baptism binds us into a holy entity, because Christ the head of the Church is holy. This presents to us a unique privilege to belong to a holy body in spite of our unfaithfulness and imperfections. But, at the same time, because we are members of the body, we are called to function as such.
St. Paul compares the Church, the body of Christ to the human body, where each part has a role to play to keep the body fit and functional (see 1 Corinthians 12). St. Paul ar-gues that the well being of the body is radically dependent on the cooperative functionali-ty of all the parts, and no part can really say it is indispensable, and hence does not need any of the other parts. Similarly, the non-functioning of any of the parts affects the gen-eral well being of the entire body. In simple terms, all parts of the body need to work together in harmony in order to have a healthy body. God so made it that each of the parts is endowed with the capability to execute specific function for the well being of the entire body.
So it is with the Church, the Body of Christ. God has therefore endowed members of the church with all sorts of gifts to guarantee a vibrant and healthy church faithful to her mandate. And so, in the church “God has designated [some people to be] first apostles; second, prophets; third teachers; then mighty deeds; then gifts of healing, assistance, administration, and varieties of tongues” (1 Cor. 12:28). The list is endless because God’s gifts are limitless. The Parish assumes a perfect representation of the Church, the body of Christ, and so what ever is said about the church, we must have the parish in mind.
Therefore, in our parish God has graciously brought us together as individuals bound together by our baptism. And God has endowed each of us special gifts for the use of building the parish in order for it to exercise her mission and ministry. The parish there-fore needs you to bring your gifts to bear in the building of the body of Christ here at Harbor Beach and Helena. Never you deny yourself this opportunity and privilege to make use of your gifts, talents, and endowments for God. Do not fall into the trappings of daily excuses (which apparently are legitimate) like, ‘I don’t have time, my job is taking a toll on me, I need to be with my family, I need to take care of business.’ Do not be like those persons in Luke 14:15ff invited to the wedding feast who said, "‘I have pur-chased a field and must go to examine it’ … ‘I have purchased five yoke of oxen and I am on my way to evaluate them’ … ‘I have just married a wom-an, and therefore I cannot come’”, and missed a grace-filled opportunity. Indeed, using our gifts in the service of God in our Parish and building a church capable of ac-complishing her mission is a grace-filled opportunity that you would not want to miss for anything in the world. And finally in the words of St. Peter, “Each one of you has re-ceived a special grace, so, like good stewards responsible for all these dif-ferent graces of God, put yourselves at the service of others” (1 Peter 4:10ff).
Parish Pastoral Council
The Parish Pastoral Council is to evolve a three-year Pastoral Plan for the parish, and so it requires inputs from all parishioners. Therefore, we call on you to please offer any sug-gestions or ideas you may have to help grow the pastoral life of the Parish. You may ap-proach me or any of the following members of the council with your ideas: Chris Grekowicz, Brian Lasceski, Sharon Mausolf, Terry Guza, Paul Learman, Carl Taus, Doug Volmering, Pat Murdock, Les Volmering, Randy Lemanski, and Gerry Schroeder. Similarly, all heads of committees are to meet with their members between now and August 18 to prayerfully brainstorm and draft their plan for the coming year. Thank you.
Vocation drive and Prayer
The Vocations Office of the Diocese is offering a day of prayer with Bishop Cistone at the Cathedral of St. Mary, Saginaw on August 14 from 5pm to 8pm. Any parent who wishes to attend with his or her children of 13 years and above should please contact the parish office.
