Saint October 9, 2011 Twenty-Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time Patrick’s CATHOLIC CHURCH 20500 West Maple Road PO Box 10 Elkhorn, NE 68022 The Mass is changing - Part II s t p a t s e l k h o r n . o r g Last week I tried to tackle the word “consubstantial”. This week I would like to tackle a simpler word-“many”. We all know that Jesus came into this world to save everyone. Jesus was criticized for associating with sinners, tax collectors and prostitutes. We know that Jesus did not come into this world to save just the Jews or any other special group or nationality. Jesus came to save all of us. This is clear in the prayer at consecration time. Jesus took the cup and said “this is my blood…It will be shed for you and for all so that sins may be forgiven”. This is the current translation of the Mass. The new translation will be different and may cause some confusion. The new translation will have: “for this is the chalice of my blood…which will be poured out for you and for many for the for- giveness of sins”. “For many” has replaced “for all”. Why? As it turns out the new translation is exactly how two of the 4 gospels writers describe the words of Jesus at the Last Supper. (As I have said earlier, the new translation is more literal and biblical). That still leaves us with a big theological question—did Je- sus die for everyone or not? There is a section in Pope Benedict’s latest book, FR. GARY OSTRANDER, Pastor “Jesus of Nazareth, Holy Week,” that helps to explain this mysterious phrase FR. RODNEY ADAMS, Assoc. Pastor (pages 125-144). The pope says that we can speculate what was in Jesus’ mind at the time of the consecration. Did he see his mission to just the Jews? Did the DANIEL PERCHAL, Deacon Church later come to see his mission for all people? The Last Supper words of JIM RICKETTS, Deacon Jesus were an echo of the words BUD SIMMONDS, Deacon of the prophet Isaiah (Is. 53),“his Masses blood was poured out for many”.

There was a woman standing at the door who told me her son was inside, he told her he was too big to use the ―girl’s room.‖ I said I was going to use the one downstairs but she asked if I would go in because he had Scripture Readings been in there a long time. Well, when I went in, he was Today’s Gospel ~ Another parable! Today’s standing there pulling all of the toilet paper off the roll. parable is about the wedding feast (heaven). When he saw me, he panicked and ran out of the rest room Those invited ignored the invitation. They were (without washing his hands). Not sure what to do, I walked out after him and there was Mom. How did he do? She busy with other things. How sad that we allow asked. Umm, well, look for yourself. I held open the door other things in our life to become more important and she looked in, turned to her son and said: Tommy, (not than our ultimate goal of eternal life with God. his name), did you do that? No, he said, it was like that when I went in there. I walked away. Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time Why do we lie? We do it to get out of trouble; to avoid October 16, 2011 hurting someone’s feelings; to get what we want, and on and on. The CCC, in talking about the 8th commandment, First Reading: Isaiah 45:1, 4-6 says that it: Forbids misrepresenting the truth in our It is I who arm you, though you know me not, relations with others. This moral prescription flows from the vocation of the holy people to bear witness to their God who so that toward the rising and the setting of the is truth and wills truth. Offenses against truth…undermine sun the foundations of the covenant (2464). In the Gospel of people may know that there is none besides me. John, the words of Jesus are: If you continue in my word you I am the LORD, there is no other. are my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free (John 31,32). In other words, to honor Responsorial: Psalm 96:1, 3, 4-5, 7-8, 9-10 truth, is to honor Jesus Christ. The most obvious way to live Give the Lord glory and honor. this commandment is to just not lie. To lie is to intentionally deceive another by speaking falsehood. So a lie, is a lie, is a Second Reading: 1 Thessalonians 1:1-5b lie. We call some lies, little white lies, but that doesn’t make what we said any less of a lie, and therefore immoral and For our gospel did not come to you in word alone, sinful. Figures of speech, teasing, jokes, hyperboles, and but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with those types of things are not lies, because they lack much conviction. intention, someone is just trying to be funny. Sometimes telling the Gospel: Matthew 22:15-21 truth can be a lie. In the At that he said to them, movie Steel Magnolias, the "Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar character played by and to God what belongs to God." Olympia Dukakis says: If you don’t have anything nice to say about Daily Scriptures for the Week somebody, sit next to me. Gossip, or what is properly Monday, October 10 called Detraction, is telling something true about someone, Romans 1:1-7 usually something embarrassing and confidential, with the Luke 11:29-32 only intention and purpose of ruining their reputation. Tuesday, October 11 Calumny is gossip that isn’t true, told for the same purpose. Romans 1:16-25 Both are immoral and therefore sinful. There is something Luke 11:37-41 called Mental Reservation which is a way of withholding truth without lying. In other words, you hide or conceal the Wednesday, October 12 truth by intentionally holding back some facts, usually only Romans 2:1-11 enough not to tell a lie. Now this isn’t to be done casually, Luke 11:42-46 because generally the expectation when asked a question is Thursday, October 13 that we will tell the truth. But not every truth is everybody’s Romans 3:21-30 business. For example, if asked a personal or inappropriate Luke 11:47-50 question, we have every right not to answer, but to lie, even Friday, October 14 – St. Callistus I in this type of situation would be a sin. Intentionally lying is Romans 4:1-8 always considered a sin, even if the reasons are noble. Luke 12:1-7 According to the Church, we were created by God to use our intellect to know the truth, so to intentionally distort it, is Saturday, October 15 – St. Theresa of Jesus wrong. Fr.
