Letters from a Pastor to His People May 10, 2020
This Sunday's Gospel is one we typically read at funerals. It is meant to be a consoling passage, and one focused on the afterlife. Jesus said to his disciples. Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father s house there are many dwelling places (John 14 1 2).
On this fifth Sunday of Easter, the First Reading comes from the Acts of the Apostles. As the Christian community new Church grows so rapidly in numbers, there is conflict around the care for poor widows.It seems that widows among the Hellenists Greek speaking Gentile Christian or to Jews who spoke only Greek do not receive the same care as Hebrew widows Palestinian Jews who spoke Aramaic living in Jerusalem.
What do you do with a problem like Maria? Title and refrain from a very famous movie, The Sound of Music. A great movie to watch if you have exhausted your movie queue. It s the ever so charming movie about a young woman who is discerning her vocation to become a nun or to be married
CHI BRO is hosted by Father James and Deacon Hank, both currently sheltering in place at St. Juliana Parish in Chicago. The podcast intends to show a peek behind the curtain of rectory life while providing an informal commentary on faith life under our current uncertain circumstances.
After an initial victory on the plains of Emmaus, Judas Maccabeus and his brothers set out to attack Jerusalem, which had become an enemy stronghold and from which the whole land was controlled. This is where we hear mention of the citadel. Ah, the citadel of Jerusalem! The sanctuary was trampled on, and foreigners were in the citadel (1 Maccabees 3 45).
