St. Augustine, St. Benedict the Moor & St. Mary Churches: Pastoral Region One Oct. 26, 2014
THIRTIETH SUNDAY IN
ORDINARY TIME
How foolish the Pharisees were in not listening to
our Lord's warnings. He gave them every opportunity to
turn away from the false path, which their pride had chosen
for them. His divine heart was ever ready to embrace them
if only they would say "mea culpa." "Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
you who kill the prophets, and stone them that are sent to
you, how often would I have gathered together your
children, as the hen does her chickens under her wings, and
you would not?" (Mt. 23:37). "God created us without our
cooperation," says St. Augustine, "but he cannot save us
unless we cooperate."
We too could make the Pharisees' mistake. We
have the invitation to the wedding feast; in fact, we are
already in the banquet hall, since our baptism; but are we
wearing the wedding garment of virtue and grace? If not,
we are no better off than those who rejected the invitation.
The king may come in at any moment and cast out those
who are not properly dressed. Being a member of the
Church on earth is a wonderful privilege, and a sure
guarantee that we will reach heaven, if we do what is
expected of us. However, the same obstacles, which
prevented the Pharisees from entering the kingdom—love
of this world, its wealth and its pleasures— these can
impede us too, unless we are on our guard. The world with
its allurements is very close to us; heaven seems very far
away. Thus we must be prepared to do violence to our
ordinary inclinations, to go against them whenever and
wherever "the things that are Caesar's" tend to blot out or
make us forget "the things that are God's."
This implies a daily carrying of the cross, a daily
struggle against our evil inclinations, a daily endeavor to
acquire true love of God and neighbor. This may sound
superhuman, but Christ did not ask anyone to do the
impossible. He led the way, and millions have followed him
to eternal glory. He has called us too and has placed within
our easy reach in his Church all the grace we need. If we
fail to use these divine helps, if we are found without the
wedding garment, we will have no one to blame but
ourselves. We have been called with the many. We can be
among the "chosen."
Reflection by Father Kevin who was professor of Sacred
Scripture at Christ the King Seminary and St. Bonaventure University in
N.Y. and later in the National Seminary, Pretoria, South Africa and as a
pastoral priest in Ireland

learn? What caused you to become aware that you
were untrue? What change happened?

PRIESTHOOD SUNDAY
On the last Sunday of October, Catholic
parishes throughout the United States will show
support for their priests with prayer, celebration and
dialogue. The last Sunday of October is designated as
Priesthood Sunday, a one-day celebration of the
priesthood organized by parish lay leaders and
coordinated by the USA Council of Serra
International.
“The purpose of Priesthood Sunday is to
engage every level of the church in the United States
in a national conversation about the priesthood,” said
Rev. Richard Vega, President of the National
Federation of Priests’ Councils. NFPC represents more
than 26,000 U.S. priests.
Priesthood Sunday was established in 2003 to
provide a way for Catholic communities to express
appreciation for the devoted priests who serve them so
faithfully despite recent negative attention in the
media. Such a celebration is increasingly relevant in
light of the declining number of priests in the U.S.
Only about 4,000 of the 19,000 parishes in this country
currently have more than one priest. Many priests
serve two or more parishes by themselves.
The lay faithful of each parish, school or other
ministry are asked to develop their own special way of
marking the day and honoring both priesthood and
their own priests. Special liturgies, Priesthood Sunday
celebrations and the opening of a dialogue between
priests and parishioners are encouraged. Priesthood
Sunday is traditionally celebrated on the last Sunday of
October, but some dioceses and parishes may celebrate
at a different time to coincide with other planned
events.
Lay parish leaders are invited to visit
www.priestsunday.org for suggested liturgies, social
celebrations, reflections, and downloadable graphics,
guides and posters. Requests for printed material may
be directed to 888.777.6681.
“Affirming and supporting our priests are some
of the most important things that we can do as
Serrans,” says Gary Davis, past president of the USA
Council of Serra International, the non-profit
organization coordinating Priesthood Sunday. The
USA Council is responsible for disseminating
information to parishes interested in honoring their
priests on this very special day. “Our priests give of
themselves every day in so many different ways. It is
an honor to recognize them in a manner in which
entire parishes may join together in an outpouring of
appreciation,” said Davis.
Priesthood Sunday is coordinated and
sponsored by the USA Council of Serra International.
Serra International is a worldwide Catholic
organization of lay men and women dedicated to
promoting vocations to the priesthood and religious
life. More than 10,000 members in over 280 clubs are
active in the United States. The USA Council is
available at the number above or at www.serraus.org.
The USA Council office is based in Chicago.
