Letters From A Pastor to His People June 30, 2019
In the Old Testament, each of the Twelve Tribes of Israel were given parcels of land throughout Israel, following the Exodus and return to the Holy Land. That is, all of the tribes except the tribe of Levi.The Levites were set apart as priests for Israel.This was determined by Moses when he came down from Mount Sinai with the Law.The Levites would not farm, goat and sheep herd.They would not have to worry about land disputes.Their whole task was to care for the Temple in Jerusalem.How would they be sustained?From where would their livelihood come?One word answer God.
In the First Reading, from the First Book of Kings,Elijah is told by God to transfer his authority to Elisha. He is very willing to respond to his call, but first asks if he can bid farewell to his parents. Elijahs harsh remark is no harsher than Jesus in todays Gospel. This is a story of prophetic succession. It is done not only by spoken word, but also by symbolic action, passing of the mantle which represents the handing down of prophetic authority from Elijah to Elisha.
Returning to our topic of pairing theological virtues with the three evangelical counsels, I want to first say more about the term "evangelical counsels.
These counsels of obedience, poverty, and chastity are guides to imitating Christ and are described as being evangelical. The use of this term is not to be confused with the Evangelical church. The original meaning has always been connected with the work of evangelization, coming from the Greek word, euangelizesthai, which means to bring the good news. During the time of the Roman Empire, this term carried the connotation that whatever the good news was it meant that Rome was being strengthened and had achieved something.
Eucharistic Adoration will take place every first Friday of the month†in the chapel starting after the 830am Mass and ending with Benediction at 545 pm. Please consider stopping by to spend some time with Jesus.
