FIFTH SUNDAY OF
ORDINARY TIME
We continue in this ordinary
time (only two weeks this year)
before Lent begins. The “great
hinge of the year,” Candlemas,
has turned; with hopeful hearts
we look to the coming of spring.
The days are longer, brighter,
and we are making our way.
Come, let us worship God. Let
us bow down in the presence
of our maker, our God.
(Psalm 94: 6-7)
Today’s Entrance Antiphon
In the Gospel,
Simon says to
J e s u s ,
“Everyone
is
lo o k ing
for
you.” Jesus is
having
great
success healing
many
people
and driving out demons. All
who encounter him adore him.
People are paying great attention to him - “the whole town
was gathered” at the door of
Simon and Andrew’s house.
Nonetheless, Jesus moves on to
other villages. His ministry is
not about drawing attention to
himself, but about preaching
the Good News of salvation.
Yet, his ministry is about himself, for He is the Good News.

FEBRUARY IS BLACK HISTORY MONTH
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Voting
Rights Act, this year we will honor the legends of
the Civil Rights Movement in the United States.
The Friendship Nine was a group of African
American men who went to jail after staging a sitin at a segregated McCrory’s Lunch Counter in
Rock Hill, South Carolina in 1961. The group
gained nationwide attention because they followed
an untried strategy called "Jail, No Bail", which
lessened the huge financial burden civil rights
groups were facing as the sit-in movement spread
across the South. They became known as the
Friendship Nine because eight of the nine men
were students at Rock Hill's Friendship Junior
College. They are sometimes referred to as the
Rock Hill Nine. The first sit-in happened in February 1960 when four black students from North
Carolina Agriculture & Technical College sat
down at a segregated Woolworth’s lunch counter
in Greensboro, North Carolina. The movement
spread across the South, reaching Rock Hill on
Feb. 12, when about 100 black students staged sitins at various downtown lunch counters. Over the
next year, several sit-ins were held in the city. On
Jan. 31, 1961, students from Friendship Junior
College and others picketed McCrory's on Main
Street in Rock Hill to protest the segregated lunch
counters at the business. They walked in, took
seats at the counter and ordered hamburgers, soft
drinks and coffee. The students were refused service and ordered to leave. When they didn't, they
were arrested. The next day, 10 were convicted of
trespassing and breach of the peace and sentenced
to serve 30 days in jail or to pay a $100 fine. One
man paid a fine, but the remaining nine — eight of
whom were Friendship students —chose to take
the sentence of 30 days hard labor at the York
County Prison Farm. Their choosing jail over a
fine or bail marked a first in the civil rights movement and sparked the "jail, no bail" strategy that
came to be emulated in other places. A growing
number of people participated in the sit-ins and
marches that continued in Rock Hill through the
spring and into the summer. Since these protestors
chose prison instead of bail, they were sent to a
work camp, where twice they refused to work,
were put on bread and water as punishment.
In 2007 the city of Rock Hill unveiled an historic marker honoring the Friendship Nine at a
reception honoring the men. At that time, eight
of the Friendship Nine were living: Robert
McCullough (died on August 7, 2006), John
Gaines, Thomas Gaither (at the time, he was a
field secretary with the Congress of Racial Equality and was the only one of the nine who was not a
Friendship student); Clarence Graham, W.T.
“Dub” Massey (is now a substitute teacher in the
Rock Hill area), Willie McCleod, James Wells,
David Williamson, Jr., and Mack Workman.
In 2015, Judge Mark Hayes of Rock hill overturned the convictions of the nine, stating: "We
cannot rewrite history, but we can right history."
At the same occasion, Prosecutor Kevin Brackett
apologized to the eight men still living, who were
in court. The men were represented at the hearing
by Ernest A. Finney, Jr., the same lawyer who
had defended them originally, who subsequently
went on to become the first African-American
Chief Justice of the South Caroline Supreme Court
since Reconstruction.
Pray for Peace...People Everywhere!

Violence breeds violence….Pure goals can

so the end...if we take care of the means we are
bound of reach the end sooner or later.
