    A Few Words from Fr. Dariusz..

 

THE 25TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

 


With the new way some parishes are run in the Archdiocese of Detroit, it is necessary for all of us to understand that some changes have been made and they will affect the way we communicated and do our ministry in our parishes.  One of the reminders priests received a couple of years ago for the Archdiocese of Detroit is that the prayer services without a priest are NOT allowed.  The majority of the priests in our family have decided that if one of us is on vacation, sick, or taking some time off, we will not look for a priest to substitute for us.  Instead, parishioners are asked to attend Masses at local Churches within the family.  To keep everyone notified, I decided to apply for CallingPost, where you can register by text or e-mail and you will be notified if there is Mass, funeral, any kind of event, or Mass that is canceled during winter.  I would encourage you to get the App to get all the notifications from the parish on your smart phone.  There will be more information coming up in our parish paper and announced after Masses.

Now about the readings designated for this weekend.

The First Reading talks about the just one who serves the cause of righteousness, and suffers for it at the hands of the wicked.  The 'righteous' are those who hold on to their faith in God and obey His commandments.  This passage has been seen as Christian tradition as anticipating the hostility suffered by Jesus.  Our reading forms a unified theme with the Gospel and with the reading from James.

In the Gospel we have the secon prediction of the Passion: once again the disciples do not understand.  Instead, motivated by selfish ambition, they get involved in an argument as to which of them is the greatest.  This kind of ambition is condemned by Jesus and by James (Second Reading).

It is not ambition itself that is condemned, but false ambition.  False ambition involves a desire to rule others.  It creates conflict and division, and is very damaging to the unity of the community.  True ambition, on the other hand, is the desire to serve others.  The best and purest kind of service is that which is rendered to the little ones, that is, to the most insignificant persons in the community.

Mark says that Jesus is teaching the disciples about the future life.  He tells them that the Son of Man is to be betrayed into human hands, that they will kill Him and three days later, He will rise again.  The disciples do not understand Him because their human wisdom does not have the necessary knowledge and understanding to perceive what Jesus is talking about.  Nor does their spiritual wisdom have the knowledge and understanding to perceive the death and Resurrection of the Lord that is quickly approaching.

This week, let us call upon the Lord, asking Him with a sincerity of heart for the gift of wisdom so through the gift of wisdom; we will be blessed with a new perception of things, receiving the Divine Light that the soul absolutely needs to perceive spiritual things with a spiritual mind.

 

God bless you 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
