    A Few Words from Fr. Dariusz..

 

THE 30TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

As your Pastor, I would like to thank you for your prayers for me.  It has been 20 years since I was ordained to Priesthood.  It feels like it happened last week.  Twelve of those yeaars I have spent with you at Our Lady of the Angels Parish.  There is no doubt, time goes by very fast.  I would like to thank all of you for your kind words and support during those years.  I would like to thank those who organized this special Anniversary dinner, especially Bennie Belknap and her team for putting the party so nicely.  I am very grateful to those priests who came to dinner, friends who came from other Churches and places where I used to work as a priest or an associate, and those who came from our Church, Our Lady of the Angels.  Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart.  You all mean so much to me.

Now, let us turn to the readings for this Sunday.

In the First Reading, we hear the story of those who escaped the Assyrian captivity of 721.  A small group of those who escaped the captivity were purified through their exile.  They became the New Israel committed to God's will.  Through suffering, they humbled themselves and turned to God with sincere resentence.  Originally, while they had had physical sight, they were still spiritually blind.  Through their suffering and slavery, they had received spiritual sight.  The First Reading reminds us that God would save what is left of His people and bring them back from exile.  Even the most helpless will share in the joy of this great event.

In the Second Reading, we heard that while every high priest is chosen from among mortals and appointed by God to be in charge of things that pertain to God on their behalf, they too must offer sacrifices for sins because they also are subject to human weakness.  The function of a high priest is not one of self appointment or an appointment by man.  It is a calling from God.  We need to remember that spiritual sight is not limited to the priests only.  One can be priest and still be spiritually blind.  We could say one who is closed to the grace of the Holy Spirit.  Spiritual sight applies to everyone in every action that is performed during the day.  It applies to spiritual growth to ensure that the doctrines that are learned are sound like a house that is built on a solid foundation.

In the Gospel Reading we hear a story about Bartimaeus.
The story of Bartimaeus is as much a call story as a healing story.  The expression "followed him along the way" doesn't simply mean that he joined the crowd on the road to Jerusalem.  There can be no doubt what Mark intends: Bartimaeus followed Jesus on the way of Christian discipleship.  He is presented as a model of faith.  Bartimaeus also serves as a model for those who are spiritually blind and whose lives lack direction.  Through faith they can have purpose, energy and direction in their lives.  An enthusiastic following of Jesus results in a happy and fulfilled life.

It seems that the story was just used in the early Church as a model of encouragement to believers and would-be believers.

May God bless us all, 

Fr. Dariusz

Statement from Archbishop Vigneron


COVID Liturgical Protocols

As we continue to make progress against the COVID-19 virus in Southeast Michigan, the following Liturgical restrictions are being amended.  All of these below are at the pastor's discretion, using his best judgment about the needs of any situation at his parish.

      1.  Those who are fully vaccinated may wear a face-covering and social distance but are no longer required to do so in Churches but is recommended.

     2.  Those who have not been fully vaccinated are to continue wearing face-coverings and to practice social distancing to protect themselves and others in Churches.  Because a parish community - and our society - requires mutual trust and a commitment to the common good, each individual is asked to make the best decisions for himself as well as for others.  Parishes do not have the responsibility to verify who is and who is not vaccinated.

       3.   Each parish is to provide a portion of the Church - with a size to be determined by the pastor - where social distancing and face coverings are consistentlymaintained.  This section is for anyone, vaccinated or unvaccinated.

      4.   All unvaccinated Catholics are encouraged to sonsult with their doctor about the vaccines.  Resources to assist Catholics in understanding the moral use of COVID vaccines can be found at aod.org/vaccines.

      5.    The Sign of Peace may resume with the normal wording, "Offerte vobis pacem / Let us offer each other the sign of peace," allowing parishioners and families to make their own determinations about how widely to share some sign of peace.

While we have made strides to make these changes on the road to returning to normal for our parish Masses, parishes are reminded to do their best in keeping vigilant that all other Liturgal guidelines and requirements from Archbishop Vigneron - including the wearing of face-coverings during indoor Masses - are maintained by the faithful.

God's blessing to all of you

Fr. Dariusz
