In the priesthood there is an idea known as fraternal correction.In fact, I remember in seminary having an evening of formation dedicated to this topic, so important a subject it was.Fraternal correction is delicately approaching a brother priest to help him deal with something that might be an issue in his life.It could be something as simple as letting him know he has bad breath to calling him out on a serious vice.
The First Reading is from the Prophet Ezekiel. Ezekiels original mission is to warn Gods people that unless they turn back from their evil ways, the Babylonians will destroy their country, and are now in exile in Babylon.This passage is,however, mainly about Ezekiels responsibility to carry out his mission to persuade disinterested people that if they do not change, they are in danger of being cut off from the Lord.
The North American Martyrs Council of the Knights of Columbus honored Mary Ryan Smith and Luisa Iannessa on Sept. 2 during morning Mass. The presentation was made by Dick Barton, Chancellor of Council 4338 which serves St. Juliana parish and three other parishes. The presentation was in recognition of the special efforts of Mary and Luisa in serving as greeters, ushers, sanitation assistants, and cleaning crew for the morning Mass during these past months of the virus pandemic. Thank you ladies!
Now that summer is over and school is started, I would like to get us back in the habit of reading. That is, I would like to try to resume the Saint Juliana Parish Book Club that we launched earlier in the year.We never had a chance to meet to discuss two of our booksThe Power and the Glory by Graham Greene and A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman.
Im thinking of either trying to meet in person or do a Zoom session or a combination of the two.If you are interested in being part of the discussion†couldyou please email me along with your preference for inperson or Zoom?
Our next book will be A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce.Date to discuss TBD.
A masterpiece of modern fiction, James Joyces semiautobiographical first novel follows Stephen Dedalus,a sensitive and creative youth who rebels against his family, his education, and his country by committing himself to the artists life.
I will not serve, vows Dedalus, that in which I no longer believe and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can.Likening himself to God, Dedalus notes that the artist remains within or behind or beyond or above his handiwork, invisible, refined out of existence, indifferent, paring his fingernails.
The Tassel of the Cloak One of the ways we reverence God is by properly celebrating holidays.
When we reverence someone or something the most fundamental thing we do is pause and acknowledge.If we are before a revered object and continue checking our phone, we are unconsciously stating the object before us is not that significant.We fill ourselves with what we think is necessary, and we continue on the path more a rut of selfabsorption.
