Jesus, Servant and King

Jesus, Servant and King by Rev. Richard Barker My dear parishioners, the use of human use power is never benign or genuinely collabora ve. It never goes away, nor does it submit quietly to anything that threatens it. The human use of power is the fruit of original sin. Man idolizes himself and seeks to dominate both nature and his fellow human beings. The ul mate abuse of power is human supremacy over life itself, whether in the form of a terrorist mili a’s murderous assault against Chris ans in the name of their religion or a solitary person’s killing of an unborn child at an abor on clinic in the name of personal hygiene or lifestyle. Power, a rac ve to the person possessing it and repulsive to the person without it, is exemplified in Pon us Pilate, the Roman governor. Exasperated with Jesus he demands of him: "You will not speak to me? Do you not know that I have power to release you, and power to crucify you?" [Jn 19:10] What is authority? Unlike power which demands subservience, authority is persuasive influence that respects man’s freedom of will to choose for or against what is being proposed. Power impels man outward, however, to control everything within his reach. Authority, in contrast, draws man inward to engage truth in his own soul and upward to encounter the only lawful power in the cosmos: the God of Truth. Authority, direc ng man beyond his own experience, invokes Divine Truth as its guarantor. It seeks the collabora on and consent of every individual not by mastery, but by a free act of human will. What did Jesus say? "I can do nothing on my own authority; as I hear, I judge; and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me." [Jn 5:30] Jesus Christ fulfills what is expected of a king. He chooses to leave Nazareth his boyhood home … (con nued on page five)
Thoughts on Communion
[Excerpt from St. John Vianney’s wri ngs) MY CHILDREN, all beings in crea on require to be fed, that they may live; for this purpose God has made trees and plants grow; it is a well-served table, to which all animals come and take the food which suits each one. But the soul also must be fed. Where, then, is its food? My brethren, the food of the soul is God. Ah! what a beau ful thought! The soul can feed on nothing but God. Only God can suffice for it; only God can fill it; only God can sa ate its hunger; it absolutely requires its God! There is in all houses a place where the provisions of the family are kept; it is the store-room. The church is the home of souls; it is the house belonging to us, who are Chris ans. Well, in this house there is a store-room. Do you see the tabernacle? If the souls of Chris ans were asked, "What is that?" your souls would answer, "It is the store-room. " O my children, how beau ful will a soul be in eternity that has worthily and o en received the good God! The Body of Our Lord will shine through our body, His adorable Blood through our blood; our soul will be united to the Soul of Our Lord during all eternity. There it will enjoy pure and perfect happiness. My children, when the soul of a Chris an who has received Our Lord enters paradise, it augments the joy of Heaven. The Angels and the Queen of Angels come to meet it, because they … (cont. on page four) St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church, Huffman, Texas

“Come and See”
Do you know that you are the sum total of all your acquaintances and experiences? That thought came to me as we were on our way home from the Holy Land a few weeks ago. My wife Danee and I saw so many wonderful and holy places and made new friends from other parishes. In addi on, I got to serve at Mass with Bishop Vincent Rizzo o, Father Francis Macatangay from St. Cecilia Catholic Church and two other deacons. One of the deacons, Frank Davis, was a former classmate of mine who sat behind me in class for four years. To say we traveled back into an quity was an understatement as we walked in the footsteps of Jesus, not to menon the holy way of holy bishops, priests and deacons of past genera ons. As we visited these sites I couldn’t get over how close in proximity everything was. Of course, we live in a different and very modern age. Traveling is defined in minutes as opposed to days. However, some places in Israel were just over the next hill from each other or just a stone’s throw away like the ancient synagogue (men oned in the gospels) adjacent to Peter’s house in Capernaum. I was once told that my forma on would not be complete un l I visited the holy land and its biblical sites. I agree. To read the Gospels is one thing, to experience them quite another. I was reminded of what Jesus said when his disciples asked where he was going: “Come and see.” (John 1:39). I was in awe of the sights but also felt a bit like the bewildered apostle Thomas as the Lord “proved” his presence at each loca on of our pilgrimage. I am so glad my wife and I made that trip. Put the holy land on your bucket list. One thing that was reaffirmed for us . . . Jesus LIVES! Confirmation Class Updates

Thoughts on Communion (from front page)
... recognize the Son of God in that soul. Then will that soul be rewarded for the pains and sacrifices it will have endured in its life on earth. My children, we know when a soul has worthily received the Sacrament of the Eucharist, it is so drowned in love, so penetrated and changed, that it is no longer to be recognized in its words or its ac ons. . . . It is humble, it is gentle, it is mor fied, charitable, and modest; it is at peace with everyone. It is a soul capable of the greatest sacrifices; in short, you would not know it again. Go, then, to Communion, my children; go to Jesus with love and confidence; go and live upon Him, in order to live for Him! Do not say that you have too much to do. Has not the Divine Saviors said, "Come to Me, all you that labor and are burdened, and I will refresh you"? Can you resist an invitaon so full of love and tenderness? Do not say that you are not worthy of it. It is true, you are not worthy of it; but you are in need of it. If Our Lord had regarded our worthiness, He would never have ins tuted His beau ful Sacrament of love: for no one in the world is worthy of it, neither the saints, nor the angels, nor the archangels, nor the Blessed Virgin; but He had in view our needs, and we are all in need of it. Do not say that you are sinners, that you are too miserable, and for that reason you do not dare to approach it. I would as soon hear you say that you are very ill, and therefore you will not take any remedy, nor send for the physi-4- cian. Dear St. Philip’s family, Recently, the Confirmandi were blessed to have Fr. Barker teach the class. He addressed the rela onship man has with God and our desire to know God. This is a basic concept that demands our a en on. We have to nurture our hearts and minds with God’s goodness and His abundant love for us. It takes effort on our part and a desire to spend quality me with God through prayer, Mass and taking part in the Eucharist. Taking God for granted is wrong. Some of the teaching points Fr. Barker made answered the age of science ques on about “crea onism” or “evolu onism”. Are they exclusive and are they right? Neither is right if they are exclusive and dogma c. We, as Catholics, can accept the theory of evolu on as a helpful explana on of the progress of man. We can also accept the Biblical data of Genesis 1 as a way to understand God’s hand in our existence. God’s me is not our me. God created everything. That is the main point to understand. Another teaching point was “why does God allow evil”? God, in His infinite wisdom and goodness, has given man the gi s of Free will and intellect. This is what separates us from the rest of God’s crea ons. God doesn’t allow evil. God created the world and all on it for good, but we are not complete. Physical evil is the manifesta on of things out of our hands. Moral evil is the misuse of freedom in the world. God allows us to make choices and to fail as humans. Upcoming topics include Heaven and Hell, angels and our interac on with them, and ge ng to know Jesus. Sincerely in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, Lyne e Zaunbrecher Confirma on Coordinator Serra Club

St. Vincent de Paul Thoughts meet his des ny, suspended between earth and heaven on Golgotha. Forsaking comfort and security, he sets out on the kingdom road to preach and teach, to heal and perform miracles in the lives of the poor in desperate need. When vast numbers of persons faint from exhaus on and hunger, he gathers them to himself as a mother hen would her brood. [cf. Mt 23:37] He feeds them with bread and the Good News of his father’s kingdom. He washes their feet. Those who accept his friendship, he saves. Long a er his disciples succumb to sleep, Jesus keeps watch at night in prayer. By the sweat of his own back, Jesus carries the cross upon which he will suffer crucifixion for the sake of the world. The Messiah offers himself as the perfect sacrifice to free mankind from its slavery to sin and death. The harshest burden Jesus willingly accepts; he alone can and should bear the world’s sins upon his shoulders. Our Lord Jesus Christ, far from being indifferent to the travail of man, le his heavenly abode to embrace the human world as his own home. [cf. Jn 1:11] That his own people disoriented and bewildered upon the field of Roman conquest refused to acknowledge his authority did not deter him from his mission. The Son of God sought them out in the "howling waste of wilderness" [Deu 32:10] and in the appointed me emp ed himself of his divine preroga ves "taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross". [Phi 2:7-8] Thus Jesus Christ did not seclude himself in his own tent. Jesus, Son of God and Servant of Man, was nailed to the cross because he staked his life on the truth. He consented to the destruc on of his earthly tent [cf. 2Cor 5:1] trus ng that his heavenly Father would raise him up on the third day. Therefore, Christ the King the first fruits of the resurrec on from the dead has won for God a holy people. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords has secured for us a house not made by human ingenuity or cruelty, but rather a mansion built by the loving hands of God our provident father. Sincerely in the hearts of Jesus and Mary. Your pastor, Reverend Richard Barker Today we celebrate Christ the King, we hear Jesus say: “...whatever you did for one of the least brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Knowing that we find the face of Christ in the poor, this month, through your gi s, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul was able to serve local residents who were in financial need. Daily Mass in Downtown Houston? It is available at Holy Cross Chapel, 906 Main Street, Houston. They are open from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, and offer Mass at 11:35 am and 12:15 pm.

DJM Corner
When you receive Communion during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, it is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ that you are receiving. Holy Communion, in the Catholic Church, is reserved for those who have received the sacrament of First Holy Communion, have been catechized (taught) in our Catholic faith and have made a profession of faith. One should abstain from Holy Communion if they are in mortal sin and have not received the sacrament of reconcilia on. If you are not Roman Catholic or are in need
of the Sacrament of Reconcilia on, we ask that you refrain
from receiving Holy Communion in the Mass. However, you
may go up to one of the ministers for a blessing when Holy
Communion is being offered. By crossing your hands over
your heart, the Priest or Eucharis c minister will know to give
you the blessing. Fr. Santan Pinto SOLT

Also, if you choose to receive only the Blessed Sacrament and not from the Chalice, it is fi ng nevertheless to pause for a moment to honor Christ’s presence in the Precious Blood—with an appropriate sign of devo on. We would not think to pass a friend on the street without some acknowledgement. Our Lord Jesus Christ deserves no less, and most assuredly, a great deal more.
