SAINTLY LIVES
SPIRITUAL REFLECTIONS
CHICO MENDES
Rubber Worker and Martyr (1944-1988)
“YES” TO THE BEYOND
Chico Mendes, who was assassinated in 1988, was
the leader of a movement linking the defense of the
Amazon region with justice for the poor who lived
there. Living in the state of acre in the Amazonian
region of Northwest Brazil, he organized a union of
the region’s rubber tappers and other poor families
who earned their meager living by extracting the
renewable resource of the rain forest. Mendes was
himself the son of tappers who arrived in the Amazon
in the 1940s to take advantage of the rubber boom. In
more recent years the fate of such workers was
threatened by giant landowners and ranchers who
preferred to burn and clear the forests to make way
for cattle.
Mendes began organizing the rubber workers in
1977, with the initial aim of simply protecting their
livelihood. But he gradually expanded his concerns to
encompass a wilder ecological vision. The burning of
the forest threatened the survival of the planet. Thus
“the cry of the earth” was connected to the “cry of the
poor”. Though the owners resorted to threats and
violence to break the union, the workers’ non-violent
tactics gradually attracted international attention. But
it was not enough to protect Mendes. He was shot and
killed on December 22, 1988.
“Chico had a lot of faith. When he died I was filled
with despair. But God comforted me and inspired me
to work alongside others to carry on Chico’s work.
They killed him but they didn’t kill his ideals or crush
the struggle.”
-Ilza Mendes, widow of Chico Mendes
The overarching wisdom of God has carried the plan
through, and now the Messiah for whom Israel longed
is to be welcomed by this poor, silent, humble girl
who represents her people. Such a reading is wholly
legitimate, indeed necessary; it is what the evangelist
intends, but it is important to remember that we read,
as Luke wrote, with benefit of hindsight. In the full
light of Easter and Pentecost and the Church’s
pondering of the mystery of Christ, Luke could write
the Annunciation story in this poetic, allusive,
theologically developed way, and we can rejoice in it,
but to the people writing the story it did not look that
like that.
As the poor and faithful of Israel had said “Yes” to
God in anguish of spirit, not seeing how things could
work out but conscious only of the tearing away from
what had gone before and the venture forward into the
dark unknown at God’s word, so Mary was being
asked to make the leap of faith in response to God’s
self-offer and invitation. There were no models for
understanding, no comforting precedents, because this
thing had never happened before…
She said her “Yes” to the Beyond, she let go of her
securities, faced the misunderstanding, bore the
shame, accepted her own bewilderment and risk. She
was herself reborn to a new existence, that she might
bring forth life for many. There was joy for her, and
in newness of life she danced with the Beyond that
was within.
Maria Boulding (1929-2009) was a Benedictine nun
of Stanbrook Abbey in England. She was a
theologian, spiritual writer, and translator of the
works of St. Augustine. She authored The Coming of
God and edited A Touch of God.

Fourth Sunday of Advent – “Behold, I am the handmaid of the
Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.” Luke 1:38
During a singing contest, one of the best-trained operatic
singers sang a flawless rendition of the Our Father. No one else
wanted to compete; finally a nervous old man was persuaded to
try.
As he began, few could even hear him. In time the sound
swelled up in him and filled the auditorium. His performance
was far from technically perfect, but every heart was touched.
When the judges award the elderly man the prize, the operatic
singer contested, “Why him? Wasn’t I brilliant?”
They answered: “You knew the song. He knew the Father.”
One of the awe-inspiring realities of the annunciation is that,
amid her questions-and probably shocked surprise and
bewildering confusion-Mary responds with a committed yes.
Why is she able to do that? We know nothing of Mary’s life
until now, but we can conjecture. This moment did not begin her
relationship with God; she knew God from the very beginning of
her days.
Often we think of faith as believing in truths and doctrines,
believing in God. Even though that is a part of it, it’s much more
about knowing God intimately.
RECTORY/SCRIP OFFICES will close at 12:00PM on
December 23, 2014. We will remain closed on
Wednesday, December 24, Thursday, December 25 and
Friday, December 26. We will also be closed on
Wednesday, December 31, Thursday, January 1 and
Friday, January 2.
Daily Practice: As these Advent days wind down, take time to
reflect: do I believe in God; do I also know God? What enables
me to know God, to be in relationship with God?
Pre-K, K and 1st Grade registration for the school year
2015/2016 can be done in Our Lady of Calvary School
office during regular school hours. There is a $25
registration fee. If you have any questions, please call 215637-1648.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Joe
Kientzy for his ministries and for all he has done as
Extraordinary Minister. Joe has been a coordinator for us
and was the first coordinator at Aria Hospital when our
parish started bringing Communion to the patients. He
served at the 6:30 AM and 8:00 AM weekday Masses and
8:00 AM on Sunday, not to mention Communion calls and
funerals. He also found time to lector and help with
training Altar Servers. It goes without saying that he will
be missed! Thankfully, we can still count on Joe as a
substitute.
If any Lector or Extraordinary Minister is interested in helping
during the Lenten Season at the 7:00PM Mass, please contact
Luci DeLisi. We are in need of additional help at the hospital
and with bringing Communion to the homebound. Please contact
Luci DeLisi 215-632-9239 for Communion calls or Roseann
Spear 215-934-5446 to help at the hospital.
Are you a Mandated Reporter? As part of our Catholic
commitment to safe environments, the Archdiocese
recently updated its policies and training curriculum for
mandated reporters of child abuse and neglect. These new
policies reflect the Church’s commitment to always do
more, as well as new Pennsylvania laws that go into effect
on December 31, 2014. If you have direct contact with
children, you may be a mandated reporter. Jeanne
Costello is our Safe Environment Coordinator and will be
working with our parish in the coming weeks to educate
mandated reporters about their responsibilities and how to
properly report child abuse to Child Line, PA’s 24 hour
child abuse reporting hotline. In the meantime, Jeanne can
be reached at 215-632-1342 with any questions.
Information is also available at
www.childyouthprotection.org
As we continue to do all we can to keep our children safe,
also know that the Office for Child and Youth Protection
provides services, resources and support toward healing
for victims and survivors of child sexual abuse and their
families. Victim services can be reached at 1-888-8008780 or via email at [email protected]
World Meeting of Families Prayer
God and Father of us all,
in Jesus, your Son and our Savior,
you have made us
your sons and daughters
in the family of the Church
May your grace and love
help our families
in every part of the world
be united to one another
in fidelity to the Gospel
May the example of the Holy Family,
with the aid of your Holy Spirit,
guide all families, especially those most troubled
to be homes of communion and prayer
and to always seek your truth and live in your love.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray for us!
