Fourth Sunday of Lent-March 30, 2014
2| Welcome to Stella Maris in Baileys Harbor, Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, Jacksonport, Sister Bay & Washington Island
Dear Fellow Parishioners
Recently, there were some tragic local
suicides. One of the people grew up in our
parish, served mass for us and attended faith
formation. I attended his memorial and
knew people who attended the other memorial. Both memorials were well done and
were as helpful as possible for the people
who were attending. No matter how well
done the services are, the grieving of those
kinds of deaths is always difficult and takes
a long time to heal if it ever truly happens at
all. There are so many difficult questions
that go unanswered. These questions tear
our insides apart and cause to us to wonder
why they do that and how to stop them from
happening. Although suicide is one of the
hardest experiences, it is not the only difficult one. Any senseless taking of innocent
life or significant loss of human life or inhumane treatment of people by other people
shocks us. It also calls out to us for some
decent and satisfactory answer to justify the
unjustifiable. In the midst of this anger and
questioning, God often is the target and/or
blamed in some way.
An interesting Masterpiece Theatre
presentation is entitled, “God on Trial.” It
concerns a group of Jews in Auschwitz concentration camp. They are awaiting their
death and upset about Hitler’s extermination
of the Jewish people. They put God on trial
for breach of the covenant he made with His
chosen people. From their understandings
of the scriptures, their history and of God in
general; they argue for or against God’s
complicity in their situation and whether He
kept His covenant. Of the people present,
some are very knowledgeable about these
matters and some are not. Some are religious and some are not. Some want to stay
loyal to God and some do not. A father and
son who are opposite each other in almost
every way continue to demonstrate their
anger and frustration toward each other.
Although we hear almost every side of the
story, in the end we are told that God is convicted of breach of the covenant. The conclusion is that what is happening is somehow God’s fault. That is not surprising with
how we as human beings have acted since
the beginning. Although personally I do not
agree with the trial’s outcome, I do not think
the exercise of that trial was bad. It was a
normal and healthy outlet. I would even go
so far as to say it was prayerful.
As we continue our journey with the
woman at the well, it is important to carry
on the conversations with Jesus that push
the limits of faith, hope and love. Just as
those Jews could not understand why God
would allow the extermination of their race
by Hitler, we find situations in life that we
just cannot fathom. Some people use those
situations as excuses to abandon God. That
option is the least creative, growth filled or
helpful one possible. The better way is to
handle these experiences, questions and
difficulties as seriously as possible with the
greatest reverence in the deepest part of ourselves in dialogue with the deepest part of
reality. We do that when we discuss these
situations with God whatever the ultimate
outcome. The psalms which are filled with
these discussions can guide us in our ability
to cope with life by venting in the presence
of God’s tender, unconditional love.
In Christ’s love,
Fr. Dave Ruby, Pastor

5| Fourth Sunday of Lent-March 30, 2014
Worship & Music Column
This weekend, our liturgy is the Fourth
Sunday of Lent, also known as Laetare
Sunday. Laetare is Latin for “Rejoice”
and we are rejoicing as Easter is fastapproaching…..only three weeks from
now!
Our focus this Lent is: What’s in Your Well? Last
weekend, we heard John’s Gospel proclaimed about
the Samaritan Woman at the Well. With our special
hymns this Lent: “Come to the Well” and “There is a
Well”, it is our hope and prayer that the music and
the lyrics help bring us closer to the Lord as we relate
to what Jesus would say to us and what we would say
to him at the well. How would that conversation
change our lives?
Continuing our Lenten Journey with the Woman at
the Well, please plan on joining us this Tuesday,
April 1 for our Lenten Taize Prayer, 3:00 pm at
Sister Bay. We will incorporate our Lenten Well
focus into this particular Taize Prayer. Through the
music and the sacred scripture and the silence and the
art and environment, we pray that the experience will
bring us closer to the Lord this Lent.
I’d like to share an example of the Taize Prayer I
experienced last July, at the NPM (National Pastoral Musician) convention in Washington, D.C. It
was held very late at night at 10:30 pm after all the
day’s workshops, music readings and events. I didn’t
know how many people would be there, given how
late the time was after a jam-packed day. Wow, was
I surprised! In the huge ballroom, it was overflowing
with people of all ages with some sitting on the floor
to be closer to the icons. There was a huge metal pedestal that looked like a tree and the vigil candles were
placed at the end of the branches, illuminating the
icons and the cross. The effect was mesmerizing.
The music was so soothing and touched your heart
singing it. The prayer was supposed to last for an
hour, but we found ourselves still praying and singing after Midnight. It was one of the most profound
spiritual experiences in which I’ve had the privilege
of participating.
We will try our best to accomplish a little of that in
this Tuesday’s Taize Prayer.
Thank you, Kathy Sedan, Worship & Music Minister
