~Pastors Corner~
Of Lepers, Outcasts and Irony
I don’t read the biblical passages like the ones in today’s readings in the same way anymore, not since this
fall when I met some folks who actually had Hansen’s disease. In October, I was privileged to go with Bishop
Larry Silva and several others on pilgrimage to the Kaluapapa on the island of Moloka’i in Hawaii.
The first thing that surprised me was that one cannot simply go to Kaluapapa. You have to be invited. The reason for this
becomes evident when you get there. Unbeknownst to many, there are still nine surviving members of the leper colony that is
still there to this day. Most of them are in there 80’s but the youngest is 72 years old. These are the folks who arrived before the
policy of mandatory isolation was ended in 1969, which would have put them in their 20’s and 30’s when they arrived. Kaluapapa is their home. And while Hansen’s disease can now be controlled, they have chosen to stay there. For the past 50 or so years,
it is the only home they have known.
I had originally decided to go to see the place where Sts. Damien deVeuster and Marianne Cope had lived, worked and died.
What I did not expect was how I would be affected when first I came face to face with those who had the disease.
They were singing.
It was in the church of St. Philomena where St. Damien had begun his ministry in 1873. Appropriately, we were celebrating
Mass and they were the choir. There were three women in their 80’s. Incidentally, they were quite good. Unfortunately, they had
other obligations right after Mass and so I did not get to meet them. It was not until later, when we went to the other side of the
peninsula where the present day settlement is, that I met “Boogie”, the youngest patient there. It was in the bookstore as we were
getting ready to depart. Boogie was standing at the counter. Like the other patients, he still bore the marks of the disease that
left him deformed before treatment became widely available. He solidly build and about 5’8”. He was bald as an egg and had a
gravelly voice that laughed and joked as he asked where we were from. His enthusiasm was infectious. We chatted a bit and then
he looked at my purchases, a biography of each saint, and said, “Yeah, those are the best ones.” Then he looked me in the eye
and said, “Hey, are you a priest?”
“Absolutely,” I replied.
“Say, could I get a blessing?”
“Sure!” I said, and gave him my best while stretching out my hand and placing it firmly on his bald head.
When I was finished, he said, “Thanks, Father!” and vigorously shook my hand.
As we departed, I thought about how much things had changed in the last 50 years. With the development of sulphone-based
medications, Hansen’s disease is no longer the horrifying phenomenon that it once was. I didn’t think twice about touching a
“leper” because lepers in the sense that the word is used in scripture simply don’t exist in modern society. There is no need for
those with Hansen’s disease to cry out “Unclean! Unclean!”
When Jesus touched the leper, he himself became unclean physically and ritually. He could no longer enter the Temple area.
When the man who was healed publicized the event, the tables were turned and Jesus became the outcast and could no longer
move about freely.
We have other outcasts now. But Jesus still reaches out to touch them. Let us pray that we have the grace to let him use our
hands to do so.

The parish council of the Knight's of Columbus
is Council 12290. They show their commitment
to church and community through their volunteer
hours and donations. Last year alone they had 34
blood donors, 160 visits to the home bound, they
had charitable donations of $2,979, and volunteer
hours of 8,824 hours. The council was also involved in Spring clean up, renovation of the
Archangel Attic, painting of the parking lot, the
recovering of the kneelers, the renovation of the
bathrooms and the alter. The Knights also do the
cooking at the Parish Picnic. There's not a coat of
paint or a nail that goes into this church without a
Knight there.
Loretta and her family are long-time members of
St. Benedicts. She has a hand and needle involved for almost anything that requires sewing
here at St. Benedict's. She makes the rank collars
for the Altar servers and sews the bibs for our
youngest members at their baptism. She also has
a very green thumb and chairs the Church
Grounds Beautification Ministry (God's garden). Thanks to her and her team the flowers get
planted and maintained and the flower beds are
filled with perennials from various parishioner's
gardens. The Stewardship Committee THANKS
Loretta and asks you to join us
in a round of APPLAUSE!

EVANGELIZATION
Having a knowing and loving relationship with
Jesus from His Word - the Bible
“ . . . And the Word was God.” (John 1:1)
ROLE OF THE EUCHARIST
Eucharist – the Center of the Evangelized
Life.
The evangelized Catholic respects the
SACRED ENVIRONMENT of the Church and
people who are there to spend time with
Jesus in silence and prayer.
Outside of the Mass, we center on the Tabernacle and Jesus’ Presence.
SILENCE is the first and honored sign of respect acknowledging the Presence of Jesus.
As evangelized believers we understand what
Christ’ Presence means. He is present!
This sacred space is NOT a place for profane
conversation; in fact no conversation should be
tolerated at all unless necessary.
We all wish and need to be able to find a place
of solitude from the world. Where else can we
find such an atmosphere? This space is a
place of retreat and quiet.

from the Bible in the teachings of the
