sick and the possessed, can come to him. He goes
out to meet them where they are, and they go to meet
him where they can find him.
It’s a significant detail. And this fact remains: what
was true in Capernaum two thousand years ago is still
true around the world today.
Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Job 7:1-4, 6-7
1 Corinthians 9:16-19, 22-23
Mark 1:29-39
Today’s Gospel begins with just four brief words: “On
leaving the synagogue. . .” It sounds so simple. It’s
almost a passing reference. You could hear those
words go by and not give them a second thought. But
with those four brief words, St. Mark does something
radical and unexpected. He points the way to another
kind of living: the Christian way. The way of Christ.
And it begins when Christ leaves the synagogue.
The synagogue, of course, was one of the most familiar
and popular gathering places in the time of Christ. It
was the great center of Jewish teaching.
But another kind of teaching, another lesson, is about
to be imparted. And it happens where you may not
expect – not in the synagogue, but a short walk away
from it, in Peter’s house.
That is where Christ cures Peter’s mother-in-law. And
then others are brought to Jesus. Jesus himself eventually has to go away, to a quiet place, to pray. But
Peter finds him and says “Everyone is looking for you.”
And Jesus replies that he can’t rest. He can’t stay put.
He needs to get up and go into others towns and
villages. He explains it beautifully: “For this purpose
have I come.”
What strikes me about this is that Christ’s work begins
in a house of worship. It starts in a place of sacred
prayer and ritual and meaning. And he clearly exercises
his ministry there. But that isn’t where it ends. It continues, and is carried out and made real, in the world.
His great purpose is fulfilled outside the synagogue
walls, in places where the lepers and the lame, the
The great work of Christianity happens in homes, on
street corners, in the market place. It unfolds in breadlines and soup kitchens, in shelters and classrooms.
It’s made manifest around the dining room table and in
offices, stores, and subway cars.
What we do here, within these four walls of the church,
of course, in invaluable and supremely important.
Here, we gather to become a community, to worship, to
receive the Eucharist, and to hear the Gospel message
proclaimed. This is where we are fed and nourished
and given the gift of grace to live as Christians in the
But this is only the beginning. Out there, out those
doors, is where it lives, grows, and spreads.
The Gospel doesn’t do any of us any good if we simply
treat it as a pretty story bound in leather, perched on
the altar, and proclaimed from the pulpit. It’s meaningless if we leave it behind. It needs to be carried from
here, in our hearts and in our lives. We need to take it
into the world, the way that Jesus did.
There are still those who are sick and who are possessed who need to be healed. They may be sick with
fear. Or possessed by loneliness. They may carry a
leprosy that eats away at their self-worth. They may
be shunned or ignored.
They are waiting for us. We can be Christ to them.
We can help fulfill his purpose in the world. Or, as
someone once said: “The only edition of the Gospels
most people are likely to see. . .is you.”
Significantly, the synagogue is mentioned twice: at the
beginning of this Gospel passage and at the end. We
begin with Christ leaving the synagogue. But we conclude with him going into it, in other towns and villages,
as he continues his work.
Years ago, a colleague at work gave me a beautiful
picture frame as a Christmas gift, with a note: “What
matters in life,” she said, “is how you frame it.”
I think Mark is telling us the same thing in this Gospel.

FEBRUARY 8, 2015
continued from page 2
A life of prayer and worship gives guidance and direction
to Christ’s work, to the Gospel message.
It’s the alpha and omega, the beginning and the end.
And so it should be for each of us. It’s the start and the
finish. But what will we do in the middle?
At the end of this Mass, you’ll hear some familiar words:
“Go in peace, glorifying the Lord with your life.”
We hear it so often – every week – that it may not
register. And let’s be honest: by that point in the Mass,
a lot of people are already out in the parking lot.
But this time, stay and listen. And ask yourself: What
does that really mean? How will I love and serve the
Lord? How will I put those words into practice? How
can I take what I hear and receive here and carry it out
those doors . . . and into the world?
That was Christ’s challenge, and – this day and every
day – it is also ours. Because, whether we realize it or
not, that remains our great calling as Christians. For
that purpose have we come.

St. Joseph Parish Center Lounge
All women of the CCM are invited to attend the
February L.I.F.E. gathering. Join us for a special
look back at the history of Guardian Angels Church,
St. Joseph Church and St. Mary of Mount Carmel
Shrine. These three places of worship have made
a huge impact on our lives and on our community.
Our presenter, historian Mark Fedder, will give us
insight into the ethnic roots, architecture, art and
history of these beloved churches.

We are asking you to help fill in some of the details,
too, by sharing photos, memorabilia and stories of
your experiences at these churches. Do you have
photos of the baptism, reception of sacraments, or
wedding of yourself or a family member? If you, or a
family member, attended one of the schools, do you
have class pictures or an early yearbook? Maybe
you have a photo, old bulletin, or parish membership booklet showing some of the pastors, priests
or nuns who so faithfully served our community. Can
you tell us an interesting, touching, or funny story
about an experience you have had? Or perhaps you,
or a family member, served the church in some
capacity. We would love to hear your story! Please
dig into your family archives and heirlooms and see
what you can find to share.

We come to love
not by finding
a perfect person,
but by learning to see
an imperfect person perfectly.
~Sam Keen
In today’s Gospel reading we see a perfect example of stewardship. Jesus
gives His time to do all that God wishes - healing the sick and preaching.
Yet, Jesus also makes time to be alone in prayer. It is through prayer,
spending time with God, that we find the strength to do what God wishes
us to do. Be sure to find time every day to be with God.
