Our Lady of Peace Church & Shrine Mission Statement Our Lady of Peace is a church and shrine dedicated to the greater glory of God and the salvation of souls. It is a place of prayer & pilgrimage with: • Perpetual adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament • Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary • Frequent celebration of the Sacraments, particularly the Eucharist and Reconciliation • Integrated formation of the person (spiritual, moral, intellectual and emotional) Page 2 Our Lady of Peace FROM OUR PASTOR Dear Parishioners, This coming Friday, November 21st we will celebrate the Presentation of the Virgin Mary in the temple. For a long time, Mary’s parents, Sts. Joachim and Ann, were without children. God rewarded their prayers and granted them a daughter late in life. They may have made a vow before her birth to offer her up to God. When Mary was three years old, her parents took her to Jerusalem to present her to God in his Temple. This event in Mary’s childhood was recorded for the first time by St. Evodius, Bishop of Antioch; perhaps one of the seventy disciples of our Lord. He preceded St. Ignatius, St. Jerome, St. Gregory of Nissa, St. Gregory Nazianzen, and other Church authorities who lived when traditions were still very recent. They related the same event and held it as true. This event was already being commemorated in the East, in the 6th century. Pope Gregory XI introduced this feast at Avignon and Sixtus V in Rome in 1585 on November 21st. The Responsorial Psalm that is read on this day says: How sweet to my taste is your promise! (Ps 119: 103a) making reference to our Lady’s faith and hope, that reveals a fundamental way in which our Blessed Mother expressed her love for Jesus: that is by doing God’s will. Yes, your decrees are my delight; they are my counselors, continues the Psalm, Your decrees are my inheritance forever; the joy of my heart they are. So very briefly, I wish to share with you an excerpt from Pope Francis’ preaching on our Lady’s hope. He says: “Mary is the mother of hope, the icon that most fully expresses Christian hope. Her whole life is a series of episodes of hope, beginning with her ‘yes’ at the moment of the Annunciation. Mary did not know how she could become a mother, but she entrusted herself totally to the mystery that was about to be fulfilled, and she became the woman of expectation and hope. Then we see her in Bethlehem, where the One proclaimed to her as the Savior of Israel and as the Messiah is born into poverty. Later, while she was in Jerusalem to present him in the Temple amid the joy of the elderly Simeon and Anna, a prediction was made that a sword will pierce her heart and a prophecy foretells that He will be a sign of contradiction. She realizes that the mission and the very identity of this Son surpasses her own motherhood. We then come to the episode of Jesus who is lost in Jerusalem and is then called back: Son, why have you treated us so? (Lk 2:48), and to Jesus’ reply that takes away her motherly anxiety and turns to the things of the Heavenly Father. Yet in the face of all these difficulties and surprises in God’s plan, the Virgin’s hope is never shaken—The woman of hope. This tells us that hope is nourished by listening, contemplation and patience until the time of the Lord is ripe. Again at the wedding in Cana, Mary is the mother of hope, which makes her attentive and solicitous to human affairs. With the start of his public ministry, Jesus becomes the Teacher and the Messiah: Our Lady looks upon the mission of the Son with exultation but also with apprehension, because Jesus becomes ever more that sign of contradiction foretold by the elderly Simeon. At the foot of the Cross, she is at once the woman of sorrow and, of watchful expectation of a mystery far greater than sorrow which is about to be fulfilled. It seemed that everything had come to an end; every hope could be said to have been extinguished. She too, at that moment, remembering the promises of the Annunciation could have said: they did not come true, I was deceived. But she did not say this. And so she who was blessed because she believed, sees blossom from her faith a new future and awaits God’s tomorrow with expectation.” (Celebration of Vespers, 2013) We owe so much to our Blessed Mother! She is that mother “who inspires us not with the vain hope of the miserable and transitory advantages of this life,” says St. Alphonsus, “but with the holy hope of the immense and eternal good of the blessed life to come”. May the feast of the Presentation of our Lady remind us that she, is the mother of hope, that she is always solicitous to sustain us in times of darkness, difficulty, discouragement, of seeming defeat or true human defeat. May our Blessed Mother help us to make of our lives a pleasing offering to our Lord, in an attitude that always looks forward to tomorrow. May God bless you! Fr.
