Sts. Peter and Paul

Through me the proclamation might be completed.

Peter and Paul encountered Jesus in very different ways. Peter was fishing, and Paul was persecuting Christians. But both encounters were so powerful that they led these two men to surrender their lives to Jesus and to follow him on a lifelong journey.

The Book of Acts shows us their journeys with all the highs and lows. Peter and Paul boldly preached to crowds of people, even when it meant getting thrown into pris- on. They performed amazing miracles that led people to believe in Christ. Both experi- enced rejection of the gospel by some of their fellow Jews. And then there was that painful disagreement between Peter and Paul about the role of Gentiles in Church.

In all of this, Peter and Paul had to continually surrender their lives to God. This may have required them to wrestle with their own plans and desires. They may have had to combat the weakness and fear that go along with such surrender. But it made them more open to the Holy Spirit and his guidance. And what fruit was borne because of it!

As we continue to surrender our lives to the Lord, we too will become more open to the Spirit. And that will make us more fruitful, just as it did for Peter and Paul. Like a spring flood that flows down river channels with no obstacles or dams blocking it, God’s grace can flow through us to the people around us. We can bring the good news of Jesus and the new life he offers to the people of our own day.

“Lord, give me the grace to surrender my life to you.“

Sunday Reflection

My persecutors will stumble, they will not triumph.

So who exactly are these "prophets"Jesus is talking about?

In the early Church, it was common for men and women to be commissioned by the Church as traveling prophets. Their calling was to visit other churches and speak God’s word to them, just as Jesus sent out his disciples in today's Gospel. They were called prophets because they were recognized as being able to speak God's words under the inspiration of Holy Spirit. It was considered an honor to welcome such a person into your home and care for him while he ministered to your church—as the woman in today’s first reading cared for the Old Testament prophet Elisha

As time went on, however, false prophets began to set themselves up in opposition to the local church leaders. Their presence and their messages caused division and confusion. Because it was fraught with controversy, the practice faded, and the official role of prophet fell to local bishops instead.

But that doesn't mean that ordinary prophets disappeared from the Church. In fact, they're all around us today. You may even be one! That's because a prophet is nothing more—and nothing less—than someone through whom the Holy Spirit speaks.

That means that your spouse might be speaking prophetically when he or she encourages you to keep up with your prayer time. Or a child coming to you in the middle of the night might be bearing a prophetic message: Time to deny yourself, take up your cross, and care for this little one. And you may be a prophet when you tell a coworker about God's work in your life. God is always speaking to us. He's always trying to get our attention. He's always asking us to welcome his messengers into our lives. Even the ones we least expect.

"Holy Spirit, help me to hear you speaking through the people you will place in my path today."

The COVID-19 virus forces us and our parishioners to grapple with a difficult reality. Amid self-isolation and "stay-at-home" orders, an increasing number of people are experiencing sickness and death separated from other people.

Liturgical Press

Liturgical Press (Collegeville, MN) has posted more free resources in their website that relate to healing and grief.

Praying Together, Praying Apart: At-Home Prayers for Times of Healing, Illness, and Death is a new resource available for free download in their website and at the link below for praying in times of healing, illness and death.

Praying together, praying apart printable pdf

  • Part I: Prayers of Comfort, Hope, and Healing: These texts can be prayed by individuals, families, or other groups

  • Part II: Lucernarium for Healing: Lucernarium, or "service of light," grows out of the tradition in the early church of lighting lamps for evening prayer. This celebration of light rejoices in Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, the Light no darkness can overcome.

  • Part III: Rosary for Healing with Luke the Evangelist: The rosary is a prayer pathway that invites us to meditate on significant events in Jesus' life. The Rosary for Healing with Luke the Evangelist focuses on the healing mission and ministry of Jesus Christ, allowing us to enter more fully into the healing experiences within Luke's Gospel. Begin each decade by reading the corresponding Scripture passage.

  • Part IV: At-Home Service of Prayer when Someone Has Died: One of the realities of social distancing is the inability to gather as a community for wakes, funerals, and other memorial services when someone has died. This service of prayer is intended to give people a way to pray in their own homes as they grieve the loss of a loved one.
