A special word of thanks to Cynthia Bebe and Dr. Bea
Infantado for the assistance and coordination in two
recent events that took place during the past weeks.
Thank you very much, Cynthia, for inviting and orchestrating the visit of Mrs. Ana Puente who gave that inspiring presentation, “Mary, Model of Faith”. And likewise to
Dr. Bea who worked on preparing that little reception
that followed the talk. And also an additional word of
thanks to Dr. Bea who prepared that delicious soup that

St. Vincent Feast day January 22
Vincent was trained and ordained a deacon by Valerius,
bishop of Saragossa, Spain, in the third century. The
Roman emperors had made being a Christian punishable
by death, so when Emperor Dacian discovered Bishop
Valerius holding Christian services, he had him imprisoned. Vincent was soon caught visiting the bishop and
was also imprisoned. The emperor refused them food.
Both men were so cheerful and strong in suffering, however, that the emperor banished Bishop Valerius and had
Vincent tortured on the rack. Vincent endured this suffering for love of Christ.
Dacian told Vincent he would spare his life if he would
hand over the sacred books to be burned. Vincent refused,
and in a fury, Dacian ordered that he be roasted on the
gridiron. Again, Vincent suffered this patiently and
survived. It is said that Dacian wept with rage and had
Vincent thrown in a dungeon filled with broken pottery.
Vincent was so calm and heroic that he converted the
jailer. The emperor then had Vincent put in a regular
prison. Friends came to console Vincent, cleanse his
wounds, and pray with him. Vincent finally died there in a
bed his friends had made for him.
Second Ordinary Sunday
ANDREW: W HERE
ARE YOU STAYING ?
JESUS: COME AND
YOU WILL SEE.
JCM 2015
SECOND ORDINARY SUNDAY
Two disciples, one of them being Andrew, follow
Jesus and say, “Where are you staying?” Jesus says, “Come
and you will see.” Andrew gets his brother Simon and says,
“We have found the Messiah.” They both go and see Jesus.
What we are dealing with here is the folksy manner of Jesus. Oh, yes. We expect the sermons of Jesus to be
powerful and thunderous but how unexpected and even
disarming it is when all that Jesus says is, “Come and see.”
A simple question and a simple answer.
Where are you staying? Come and see. But oh what it entails. I wonder if those disciples realized then what they
were asking for.
Where are you staying? I like w h at you
teach. I might want to be a follower of yours. I might
want to test the waters.
Come and see. W ell yo u h ave said h o w you
feel. Of course you know what being a follower of mine
entails. Or do you? Well it entails a lot. If you come and
see, then you will see how much it means to be a follower
of mine.
But there is a sad alternate to the narrative. The
sad situation is when someone asks: where are you staying. But then does not: come and see. You know the thing I
am talking about. They are attracted to Jesus’ message but
they cannot make the full commitment. You see. The
WHERE ARE YOU STAYING /COME AND SEE experience has a certain balance to it. It carries with it joy as well
as responsibility.
Now let’s go back to that folksy story; if we ask
Jesus where he is staying, will we have what it takes to go
and see?

St. Mary’s “Messiah” was on TV
If you missed it we are sure you have already heard
by now how wonderful "Messiah" was on December
7th. Our diocese TV was here and recorded interviews and singing that was aired on NetTV. Another
brief vocal closed the half-hour news segment. You
may now view the main portion by typing the following link in your internet address area or going to the
parish blog stmarylic.blogspot.com and clicking on
the hyperlink "Click to watch Handel's Messiah"
