             This is the anniversary day Mary appeared

                    at Fatima after the

                    children were jailed

 

August 13, 1917

Because of the excitement caused by the apparitions, the civil authorities were so alarmed that they kidnapped the three young visionaries and put them in jail. The incarceration period included the day of August 13. Consequently, Our Lady did not appear to the children on this particular 13th.

The authorities, fearing reaction on the part of the people, quickly released the children. Mary appeared to them on August 19 near Valinhos:

She told them she was greatly displeased by the action of the mayor. As a result, the miracle promised for October would not be as impressive as originally planned. 15

2 Corinthians 9: 6-10

But remember:  anyone who sows sparsely will reap sparsely as well—and anyone who sows generously will reap generously as well. Each one should give as much as he has decided on his own initiative, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. God is perfectly able to enrich you with every grace, so that you always have enough for every conceivable need, and your resources overflow in all kinds of good work. As scripture says: To the needy he gave without stint, his uprightness stands firm for ever.  

The one who so freely provides seed for the sower and food to eat will provide you with ample store of seed for sowing and make the harvest of your uprightness a bigger one:

 

Psalm 112: 5

All goes well for one who lends generously,

who is honest in all his dealing;

   

John 12: 24-26

In all truth I tell you, 
unless a wheat grain falls into the earth 
    and dies, 
it remains only a single grain; 
but if it dies 
it yields a rich harvest. 
Anyone who loves his life loses it; 
anyone who hates his life in this world 
will keep it for eternal life. 
Whoever serves me, must follow me, 
and my servant will be with me 
    wherever I am. 
If anyone serves me, 
    my Father will honour him.

  

                The priest at Mass said

                Being willing to suffer for Christ —
                Being willing to share our talents to
                    lead others to Christ

                From the Jewish converts, they were
                    ostracized from social
                    life —

                The Jews didn't like them because
                    the Jews thought they abandoned
                    the way of Moses but they were
                    doing right.

                Paul was taking a collection to
                    support the Christian community —

                St. Paul thanks those who gave
                    because they didn't have
                    much

                The Gospel is the seed —
                    a seed must be planted —
                    We must die to ourselves to
                        bear fruit —
                    The fruit of our actions should
                        bring others to Jesus —

                We must be concerned in this life
                    for other people, too, to lead
                    them to eternity —

                We must succumb to the will
                    of God so we bear fruit
                    for ourselves and others to get
                    to heaven —

                We must die to ourselves to
                    produce good fruit for
                    the Kingdom of God —

                end of homily August 10


                The wine is from the grape
                The wheat is from the field —

                At Mass bread and
                    wine are offered —

                The bread at Mass becomes the Body of Jesus
                    through the hands of consecrated
                    priests —

                The wine becomes the Blood
                    of Jesus at Mass through
                    the hands of consecrated priests —

                God is all powerful

                We pray to the Father
                We unite to the sacrifice of Jesus
                    in the Holy Spirit
                    through the intercession of Mary
                    with all the angels and saints

 

Mark 14: 12-16, 22-26

On the first day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover lamb was sacrificed, his disciples said to him, ‘Where do you want us to go and make the preparations for you to eat the Passover?’ So he sent two of his disciples, saying to them, ‘Go into the city and you will meet a man carrying a pitcher of water. Follow him, and say to the owner of the house which he enters, “The Master says: Where is the room for me to eat the Passover with my disciples?” He will show you a large upper room furnished with couches, all prepared. Make the preparations for us there.’ The disciples set out and went to the city and found everything as he had told them, and prepared the Passover.

   And as they were eating he took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to them. ‘Take it,’ he said, ‘this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them, and all drank from it, and he said to them, ‘This is my blood, the blood of the covenant, poured out for many. In truth I tell you, I shall never drink wine any more until the day I drink the new wine in the kingdom of God.’

   After the psalms had been sung they left for the Mount of Olives.

   

                Jesus has died and He has risen
                    He is our saving Lord

                Sing: A Song from Jesus

                We see ourselves stand beneath the cross with
                    Mary — unite to Jesus —
                    we pray to the Father
                    united to Jesus
                    in the Holy Spirit

  

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

-Mass Book, December 27, 1995

  

                The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary
                    sacramentally made present —

 

Lamb of God

Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.

    

John 15: 1-8

I am the true vine,
and my Father is the vinedresser.
Every branch in me that bears no fruit
he cuts away,
and every branch that does bear fruit
     he prunes
to make it bear even more.
You are clean already,
by means of the word
     that I have spoken to you.
Remain in me, as I in you.
As a branch cannot bear fruit all by itself,
unless it remains part of the vine,
neither can you unless you remain in me.
I am the vine,
you are the branches.
Whoever remains in me, with me in him,
bears fruit in plenty;
for cut off from me you can do nothing.
Anyone who does not remain in me
is thrown away like a branch
—and withers;
these branches are collected
     and thrown on the fire
and are burnt.
If you remain in me
and my words remain in you,
you may ask for whatever you please
and you will get it.
It is to the glory of my Father
      that you should bear much fruit
and be my disciples.

    

                Sing: We Have Been Told

 

Genesis 1: 26-31

God said, ‘Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.’ 

    God created man in the image of himself, 
    in the image of God he created him, 
    male and female he created them. 

God blessed them, saying to them, ‘Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. Be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven and all the living creatures that move on earth.’ God also said, ‘Look, to you I give all the seed–bearing plants everywhere on the surface of the earth, and all the trees with seed–bearing fruit; this will be your food. And to all the wild animals, all the birds of heaven and all the living creatures that creep along the ground, I give all the foliage of the plants as their food.’ And so it was. God saw all he had made, and indeed it was very good. Evening came and morning came: the sixth day.

   

                God said to be fertile and
                    multiply in Genesis —

                God gave us the seed for food —
                God gave us the animals —

                God gave us the wheat of the field
                    and the gift of the Mass
                    and the Church and the priest

                God gave us the fruit of the vine —
                    God gives us food for our
                    bodies and
                    we can make juice and wine
                    from the grapes to sustain
                    our life

                And God gives us the Eucharist —
                    Jesus gives Himself to us for ourselves —
                        to feed our souls — to
                        prepare us for heaven —

                We were made body and soul —
                Jesus is the bread of life —

 

John 6: 41-51

Meanwhile the Jews were complaining to each other about him, because he had said, ‘I am the bread that has come down from heaven.’ They were saying, ‘Surely this is Jesus son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know. How can he now say, “I have come down from heaven?” ’ Jesus said in reply to them, ‘Stop complaining to each other.

‘No one can come to me
unless drawn by the Father who sent me,
and I will raise that person up
    on the last day.
It is written in the prophets:
They will all be taught by God;
everyone who has listened to the Father,
and learnt from him,
comes to me.
Not that anybody has seen the Father,
except him who has his being from God:
he has seen the Father.
In all truth I tell you,
everyone who believes has eternal life.
 I am the bread of life.
 Your fathers ate manna in the desert
 and they are dead;
 but this is the bread
    which comes down from heaven,
 so that a person may eat it and not die.
 I am the living bread
    which has come down from heaven.
 Anyone who eats this bread 
    will live for ever;
 and the bread that I shall give
 is my flesh, for the life of the world.’

 

1 Kings 19: 4-8

He himself went on into the desert, a day’s journey, and sitting under a furze bush wished he were dead. ‘Yahweh,’ he said, ‘I have had enough. Take my life; I am no better than my ancestors.’ Then he lay down and went to sleep. Then all of a sudden an angel touched him and said, ‘Get up and eat.’ He looked round, and there at his head was a scone baked on hot stones, and a jar of water. He ate and drank and then lay down again. But the angel of Yahweh came back a second time and touched him and said, ‘Get up and eat, or the journey will be too long for you.’ So he got up and ate and drank, and strengthened by that food he walked for forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, God’s mountain.

INTRODUCTION
– (1 Kings 19, 4-8; Ephesians 4, 30 – 5, 2; John 6, 41-51) Eight hundred fifty years before Christ there lived in Israel a queen with an evil reputation named Jezebel.  Among her many goals in life was to eliminate the Israelite religion.  There lived also in Israel at this time the prophet Elijah whose life was dedicated to serving the one true God, Yahweh.  Naturally these two would clash.  In a very dramatic and powerful confrontation on Mt. Carmel, a place now known as Haifa, the prophet Elijah worked a miracle that demonstrated that Yahweh was truly God, while the gods of Jezebel were nothing at all.  Jezebel was not a happy loser in this confrontation, and she sent her army after Elijah in order to kill him.  Elijah took off running.  Today’s first reading finds him in the southern part of the Holy Land, hungry, tired and depressed.  But God took care of him and gave him special food that strengthened him to be able to walk for 40 days through desert wildness to Mt. Horeb, the mountain in the Sinai Peninsula where God gave Moses the 10 Commandments.

This passage has been chosen because of the special food God gave Elijah.  The passage connects with the gospel where Jesus tells us he is the bread that will strengthen us on our journey through life and into eternal life.

 

                Elijah was serving the one true God —
                Jezebel wanted to destroy him —
                    because Elijah just worked
                    a miracle and Jezebel was
                    a sore looser — she
                    wanted him put to death —

                God led Elijah to Mt. Horeb

                That is where Moses got the
                    10 Commandments —

                Elijah is given a hearth cake
                    and told to eat by the angel

                Elijah eats and walks 40 days and nights.


                Jesus gives us food infinitely more
                    than Elijah's hearth cakes —

                If we really believed in the Eucharist
                    we would have a steady
                    food of the Eucharist —

                Jesus tells us the food He gives
                    us will help us with
                    eternal life


 

John 6: 52

Then the Jews started arguing among themselves, ‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’

 

19th Sunday in Ordinary Time
August 13, 2006

HOMILY – Our readings today are about food, something that is near and dear to all of us.  It’s near and dear to all of us not only because it’s something we enjoy, but something we need to have in order to live. 

Two weeks ago the gospel was about Jesus feeding a great crowd - over 5000 people with five barley loaves and a couple of dried fish.  After he fed them, they wanted to make him their king and why wouldn’t they?  But Jesus came to give us something more than free food.  And so he got away from this crowd that were intent on making him a king until they settled down.  When they found him again, he told them you’re looking for me not because you’ve seen signs (indicating they couldn’t see more deeply into what Jesus did), but you’re looking for me simply because you’ve had your stomach filled.  He came, he told them, in order to give them food that would bring them eternal life.  Of course they wanted that too.  So he told them that food was himself: “I am the bread of life…  I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever.”  That was not easy for them to swallow (if you’ll pardon the expression).  In spite of the great miracle he had worked, they failed to believe in him.  But he did not back down. 

If you read through this section of St. John you will see there are two different ways to understand this expression that Jesus is the bread of life.  We Catholics almost automatically presume that the idea that Jesus is the bread of life means the Eucharist, and it does, but it means something that precedes the Eucharist.  The first way to understand this idea is to understand that Jesus feeds us through his word and our acceptance of that word.  In other words, Jesus is the bread of life because we believe what he teaches us.  This is one big reason such a large part of the Mass is dedicated to hearing God’s word.  It is through hearing and believing that we are fed: our mind is fed, our spirit is fed, our heart is fed.  God’s word influences our thoughts, our attitudes, our actions, the way we treat others, our attitude toward God and toward ourselves.  This openness of our mind and heart to his word is a source of eternal life for us. 

As we read on through this chapter, the idea that Jesus is the bread of life in the Eucharist begins to be developed.  It will be developed in the next couple of weeks, but it is introduced here with the words: “the bread that I will give is my flesh.”  I would like to digress here for a moment.  St. John devotes a lot of his gospel to the Last Supper, but he does not tell us about the institution of the Eucharist.  It is in this place that he does.  Notice the words “the bread that I will give is my flesh…”  Notice how closely the words parallel what we hear at the consecration: “this (the bread) is my body.”  The bread that I will give is my flesh.”  As I said, we will hear Jesus say this more emphatically in the next couple of weeks, so emphatically and clearly in fact that those who had been ready to make him a king said he was crazy and they walked away. 

Modern science has discovered many things about food.  It has told us about foods that are healthy and foods that are unhealthy, foods that can help heal us and foods that contribute to sickness, foods that can even affect our moods and our energy.  We’ve learned from science about vitamins and minerals, but we know we can’t just stop eating and just take one big vitamin pill.  Scientists tell us there are still elements hidden in food that affect our health and well-being positively or negatively that they haven’t discovered yet.  Although we’ve all seen vitamin pills, vitamins themselves are tiny molecules that we can’t see with the unaided eye.  We just have to take it on faith that they’re in the vitamin pills we take or the food that nutritionists tell us is healthy food. 

We have to take it on faith, too, that there is a lot in Jesus’ teaching and his sacraments that we cannot see and will never see in this world with our eyes.  We can only believe what our ears tell us.  When we look at the host we see what looks like bread.  What we hear, though, are the words of Jesus, “The bread that I will give is my flesh.”  Jesus is the bread of life.  Believing in him, living according to his word and receiving his sacraments are life-giving.  He gives us a life that is abundant, a life that is eternal, a life that will bring greater joy that we can now imagine.  We thank the Lord for this gift of divine nourishment he gives us today.

 

John 6: 51-58

"'I am the living bread
    which has come down from heaven.
Anyone who eats this bread
    will live for ever;
and the bread that I shall give
is my flesh, for the life of the world.’

    Then the Jews started arguing among themselves, ‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’ Jesus replied to them:

In all truth I tell you,
if you do not eat
   the flesh of the Son of man
and drink his blood,
you have no life in you.
Anyone who does eat my flesh
   and drink my blood
has eternal life,
and I shall raise that person up
   on the last day.
For my flesh is real food
and my blood is real drink.
Whoever eats my flesh
   and drinks my blood
lives in me
and I live in that person.
As the living Father sent me
and I draw life from the Father,
so whoever eats me
   will also draw life from me.
This is the bread
   which has come down from heaven;
it is not like the bread our ancestors ate:
they are dead,
but anyone who eats this bread
   will live for ever.

 


 

Exodus 24: 3-8

Moses went and told the people all Yahweh's words and all the laws, and all the people answered with one voice, 'All the words Yahweh has spoken we will carry out!' Moses put all Yahweh's words into writing, and early next morning he built an altar at the foot of the mountain, with twelve standing-stones for the twelve tribes of Israel. Then he sent certain young Israelites to offer burnt offerings and sacrifice bullocks to Yahweh as communion sacrifices. Moses then took half the blood and put it into basins, and the other half he sprinkled on the altar. Then, taking the Book of the Covenant, he read it to the listening people, who then said, 'We shall do everything that Yahweh has said; we shall obey.' Moses than took the blood and sprinkled it over the people saying, 'This is the blood of the covenant which Yahweh has made with you, entailing all these stipulations.'

 

Psalm 80: 17

May your hand protect those at your side,
the child of Adam you have strengthened for yourself!

 

Hebrews 9: 11-15

    But now Christ has come, as the high priest of all the blessings which were to come. He has passed through the greater, the more perfect tent, not made by human hands, that is, not of this created order; and he has entered the sanctuary once and for all, taking with him not the blood of goats and bull calves, but his own blood, having won an eternal redemption. The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkled on those who have incurred defilement, may restore their bodily purity. How much more will the blood of Christ, who offered himself, blameless as he was, to God through the eternal Spirit, purify our conscience from dead actions so that we can worship the living God.

This makes him the mediator of a new covenant, so that, now that a death has occurred to redeem the sins committed under an earlier covenant, those who have been called to an eternal inheritance may receive the promise.

   

                Sing: I Am the Bread of Life

 

                When Jesus went up Mt. Tabor
                    and took the Apostles —
                    Peter, James and John
                Elijah appeared with Moses —

                God led Elijah to Mt. Horeb
                    where Moses got the 10 Commandments

                In the Transfiguration
                    Elijah and
                    Moses appeared

                Moses received the law
                    Elijah was a great prophet

                Jesus showed the Apostles
                    Himself transfigured —

                Jesus is the completion of the Law
                    and the prophets

                Elijah and Moses appeared on
                    Mt. Tabor and the Apostles
                    saw Jesus all white

                Saturday at Church when the priest gave
                    the homily about the Eucharist
                    for the 19th Sunday and
                    these were the readings —

                I saw this white veil across the front
                    of the Church —
                    it is hard to describe, but
                    this beautiful sight lasted
                    the whole homily

                It was my birthday too —

                Jesus wants us to get the Blue
                    Books out that lead people
                    to adoration and the Eucharist —

                Also to print Cycle C
                    of the homilies for next year
                    please help us

July 31, 1994

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)
