™FROM THE PASTOR™
You may recall my column of a couple weeks
back in which I discussed a play called “Every Brilliant
Thing.” In that column, inspired by the play, I invited
myself and all of you to make a habit, as this New Year
begins, of writing out our own lists of “brilliant things”
which we experience daily – things that make life
beautiful and worth living.
You know, God is good; and he tends to hear
our prayers, even when we don’t voice them directly.
Anyway, he obviously read my above-referenced
column as a prayer; because he sent me a “brilliant
thing” recently. It was my monthly 1-hour spirituality
session with those guests of our Food Faith & Friends
program who opt to remain for it. Since Epiphany had
just passed, I decided we might read and discuss the
classic short story by O. Henry entitled “The Gift of the
Magi.” I paired this little gem with my own column on
“Every Brilliant Thing”…
As they often do, our guests floored me with
their insight and their faith. At some point, just about
every one of them jumped in to share an insight or an
experience of their own. They also listened attentively
to one another, and offered support, both verbal and
nonverbal. It was, of course, their genuineness and
conviction which moved me; I’ll say more of that in a
minute…
But first, a refresher… Most of you probably
read “The Gift of the Magi” in high school or college.
It was published originally in 1905 (and is readily
available for free online). It was meant to be
contemporary then. The relative value of a 1905
dollar versus a 2015 dollar is striking indeed!!
Anyway, the story tells of Jim and Della – a young
newlywed couple of (very) slender means who are
very much in love.
As Christmas draws near, each of the young
marrieds wants to get a special gift for the other; but
money is obviously tight. They own between them, as
the author tells it, only two things of any real value.
Della has long, thick, beautiful hair; and Jim has a gold
pocket watch which had once belonged to his father,
and to his father’s father before that.
Intending to surprise one another, Jim pawns
his watch in order to purchase some bejeweled combs
which Della had admired in a store window, while
Della sells her hair to buy a worthy gold chain for Jim’s
precious watch. When they recover from the mutual
shock of each other’s ironic sacrifice, Jim – having
hugged Della tight – wisely says: “Della, let’s put our
Christmas gifts away and keep them a while. They’re
too nice to use now... And now I think we should have
our dinner.”
O. Henry, reflecting the tastes of his day, is not
at all reticent to moralize. He declares at the end of
his tale: “The magi, as you know, were wise men—
wonderfully wise men— who brought gifts to the
newborn Christ-child. They were the first to give
Christmas gifts. Being wise, their gifts were doubtless
wise ones.
“And here I have told you the story of two
children who were not wise. Each sold the most
valuable thing he owned in order to buy a gift for the
other. But let me speak a last word to the wise of
these days: Of all who give gifts, these two were the
most wise. Of all who give and receive gifts, such as
they are the most wise. Everywhere they are the wise
ones. They are the magi.”
Which leads me back to my own God-given
“brilliant thing” with our FF & F guests. Once again,
they floored me with the depth of their own
spirituality. They expressed only compassion – and
even near-pity – for the wealthy in our culture. Some
recalled having had periods of relative wealth
themselves; and they freely acknowledged that during
those periods, they had worked too hard and too long,
worried too much about safeguarding their
possessions, and often missed the most precious
things in life, which (as Della and Jim illustrate) have to
do with the free giving and receiving of love.
Our guests also had no difficulty at all in
naming any number of “brilliant things” in their recent
experience for which they thanked God
unapologetically, and with great enthusiasm. I was
reminded yet again that to “find God in all things,” you
need to have your eyes and ears open – and your
humility in abundant supply.
The “icing on the cake.” One of our guests
had recently lost most of his possessions in a fire.
Having openly thanked God for keeping him and his
housemate safe, he asked me quietly if we could help
him to get some clothes. The short answer would
have been “no,” as we no longer collect and store
clothing on an ongoing basis. But as it happens, I
personally had several boxes of clothes which no
longer fit me, and which were waiting for me to
deliver them to a neighborhood thrift store.
Amazingly – no, providentially! – about three-quarters
of them were the exact right sizes for our guest. So he
and I thanked God together for this latest gift, and for
“every brilliant thing.”
—Fr. Dan

thank the members of the Old St. Joseph’s Church for
its recent donations of holiday gifts. We have never
received as many beautiful gifts from a single

“We are delighted to be a recipient of your
generosity, and we are very grateful for your
demonstrated commitment to our case. It is because
of your support that Little Brothers is able to
accomplish its mission of relieving the isolation and
loneliness of the elderly in Philadelphia.
“We are sincerely thankful that, with the
assistance of organizations like yours, we are able to
continue to brighten the holiday season for so many
of our “old friends.”
“Once again, we thank you very much for all of
your support.

™INTERFAITH™
On Tuesday, January 27, 2015 from 7:00pm to
9:00pm at Old St Joseph's 3rd floor Library we will
discuss the book The Ornament of the World: How
Muslims, Jews and Christians Created a Culture of
Tolerance in Medieval Spain. A review on
Amazon describes the book as follows: María Rosa
Menocal's wafting, ineffably sad The Ornament of the
World tells of a time and place--from 786 to 1492, in
Andalucía, Spain--that is largely and unjustly
overshadowed in most historical chronicles. It was a
time when three cultures--Judaic, Islamic, and
Christian--forged a relatively stable (though
occasionally contentious) coexistence. Such was this
period that there remains in Toledo a church with an
"homage to Arabic writing on its walls [and] a
sumptuous 14th-century synagogue built to look like
Granada's Alhambra." Long gone, however, is the
Córdoba library--a thousand times larger than any
other in Christian Europe. Menocal's history is one of
palatine cities, of philosophers, of poets whose work
inspired Chaucer and Boccaccio, of weeping fountains,
breezy courtyards, and a long-running tolerance
"profoundly rooted in the cultivation of the
complexities,
charms
and
challenges
of
contradictions," which ended with the repression of
Judaism and Islam the same year Columbus sailed to
the New World. --H. O'Billovich. The book is available
at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and the Free Library of
Philadelphia. And all also have e-editions.
™WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES™
World Meeting of Families: Archbishop Chaput Wants
YOU! In a letter to all the people of the Archdiocese dated
December 15, Archbishop Chaput has invited us all to
consider being personally involved next year in the World
Meeting of Families in a special way. He expects over 5,000
reporters to be here covering the meeting, and so identifies
a need for well-informed priests, religious, and lay people
from across the Archdiocese who represent the broad
spectrum of our diverse Catholic family to help speak to the
media about Church teaching on a variety of matters. In
order to help prepare people, both the Archdiocese and the
World Meeting of Families have partnered with Catholic
Voices, USA, which provides media training to Catholics so
that they can speak to the press about their faith with
confidence, comfort, and sensitivity. Training sessions focus
not only on interviewing techniques, but also on how to
field questions that might seem critical of the Church and
her teachings by embracing them as a way to provide clarity
and understanding. Catholic Voices will host an initial
information session for all those interested; the meeting
will be held on Tuesday, January 13th at 6:00 p.m. in the
Vianney Hall Auditorium at Saint Charles Borromeo
Seminary. Representatives from Catholic Voices, the
Archdiocese, and the World Meeting of Families will provide
detailed information at that time. You’ll be able to learn
more, ask questions, and decide if this opportunity is right
for you. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to
the Archdiocesan Office for Communications at 215-5873747 or [email protected] Thank you for all of your
continued support. Please continue to pray for the success
of our efforts as we prepare to welcome Pope Francis and
the world to Philadelphia next year.
