Transcript of St. Dominic Catholic Church 303 West Main Street ... Choir and Hand Chime Rehearsals resume

  • Mission Statement of St. Dominic Church As members of St Dominic Church, we are called through our baptism to give witness to

    the presence of the Holy Trinity by accepting the Gospel message of Jesus Christ as part of

    our daily lives. Our mission is to proclaim the Gospel; to teach and share our faith; and to

    show the love of God to all through our daily lives.

    January 15, 2017 ~ Second Sunday in Ordinary Time


    Today we begin with one of the servant songs from the book of Isaiah, a song prophetic of

    Jesus ministry of service. Isaiahs mission is not only to bring back the children of Jacob to

    gather in Israel; it is also to be a light to the nations (Isaiah 49:6). Jesus Christ, as servant, will

    be the fulfillment of the ancient prophecy and the basis of the new.

    This Sunday we begin a series of readings from Pauls letter to the Corinthians. Here Paul is

    identified by his mission: he is an apostle of Jesus Christ. The church at Corinth to whom he

    addresses this letter is also identified: it is part of the universal church of God. The Corinthians

    are called to holiness, as are all Christians.

    Though the feast of the Baptism of the Lord was celebrated last Monday, todays Gospel

    also alludes to the importance of that event. The reading emphasizes that Jesus outranks John:

    his baptism in the Spirit will eradicate sin. Jesus accepts Johns baptism, even though it is he

    himself who is the Lamb of God. Copyright J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

  • TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION As soon as Christmas ends, people begin planning for Easter! Originally, the source of our Paschal Triduum was

    but a single liturgy extending from Saturday sundown to

    sunrise on Easter Sunday. The two days leading up to the

    liturgy were days of fast, not only for the elect, but for the

    church preparing to baptize them. A fifth-century pope

    explained that the church imitated the apostles, who were

    in hiding with their grief from the arrest of Jesus, and

    therefore sacraments, even penance, were forbidden.

    Inevitably, though, people wanted to come together,

    and so eventually a Liturgy of the Word developed for

    Good Friday. This was the first step toward todays shape

    of the Triduum, and gradually new ideas were embraced,

    including the veneration of the cross and a simple

    Communion service. Interestingly, the Word remained

    central, since we know that in those days the pope did not

    receive Communion at this liturgy, even though the faithful

    had that option. In the other churches of Rome, priests and

    people received Communion under both species. Although

    the custom of Communion on Good Friday took hold, it

    did not endure past the Middle Ages. The central liturgies

    of the year slowly unraveled and disappeared from parish

    life. Remember that there were no seminaries in those

    days, and books were a rare luxury. Most priests could

    only manage to celebrate a simple low Mass, and few

    parishes could afford the ritual books that would guide a

    priest through the complex forms. Holy Week remained

    important in private devotion, but for a time the liturgies

    virtually disappeared.
