Letters from a Pastor to His People October 18, 2020
This is a fitting Gospel for the election season. Politics...yikes! Ill do my best to keep it spiritual. As Ive said before, I personally subscribe to the position of St. Edmund Campion, the English priest who was martyred by Queen Elizabeth in the 16th Century. I never had mind, he said, and am strictly forbidden by our Father that sent me, to deal in any respect with matter of state or policy of this realm, as things which appertain not to my vocation, and from which I gladly restrain and sequester my thoughts. Now, I can do this because I belong toGod
The First Reading is from the Prophet Isaiah. The Prophet has been given a message from God to Cyrus, King of Persia, who has just defeated the King of Babylonia in the 6th century BC.The great Persian Emperor Cyrus will be made part of Gods saving plan for His chosen people. Cyrus is told that it was by the hand of God that he was successful in his battles and that God will use him to great advantage if he follows God's instructions. What makes this decree extraordinary is that it is addressed to a pagan king, Cyrus who was not a Jew, but he recognized true authority when faced with it and, in humility, he bowed in favor of the God of the Israelites.

The Saint Juliana Parish Book Club will meet on Saturday, October 24th at 915am in the back of the church to discuss A Portrait of the Artist As A Young Man, by James Joyce
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 was reading recently through my old political science notes from college and came across this quote by the comedian Jon Stewart about public opinion. You have to remember one thing about the will of the people, he wrote, it wasnt that long ago that we were swept away by the Macarena.
Macarena, of course, was the 1993 song by the Spanish group Los del Rios that remained on Billboards top spot for fourteen weeks and the top 100 chart for sixty weeks. It was named the most successful song of 1996, achieved number 7 on Billboards All Time Top 100, and was called by VH1 the number 1 Greatest OneHit Wonder of All Time.
Deacons are ordained as a sacramental sign of Christ, who came to serve and not to be served. In fact, the terms deacon and diaconate come from the Greek word diakonia which means service or ministry. The deacon, by virtue of his sacramental ordination and through his various ministries, participates in his service to the Church and its people through an integrated threepart ministry of service to the Word, service to the liturgy, and service to charity.
CHIBRO is hosted by Father James, St Juliana Parish and NEWLY ORDAINED Father Hank, St Emily Parish, Mount Prospect, IL. 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.
