    GOD’S WORD TODAY At every Mass we are nourished at two tables: the table of God’s sacred word and the table of the Eucharist. Today’s readings provide a feast for our souls. Wisdom, that mysterious feminine figure, invites all to her table to eat of her food and drink of her wine. This food helps us to “advance in the way of understanding.” As wise followers of the Lord, we listen to Jesus’ words: “I am the living bread that came down from heaven.” At the table of the Eucharist we feast on this, the most sacred of all foods. We eat and drink of the very body and blood of Christ. From both tables—word and Eucharist—we are given life in abundance. Let us hunger for wisdom and for the presence of Christ as the word of God is proclaimed this day. From Saint Margaret Sunday Missal, © J. S. Paluch Co.

  • PASTOR’S CORNER Today’s readings present an interesting concept to us. They ask us to look more carefully or listen more attentively to those who we travel through this world with. Have you ever been challenged about an attitude or habit you may have? Once, in Okinawa while with the Marines I was “challenged” by a senior priest. He said he had heard I was arrogant and uncooperative while out on a training exercise. He was right … and I at first did not accept his criticism. Our first two readings admonish us to forsake foolishness. We are to live in accord with God’s will and spirit. John’s Gospel tells us we must eat and drink of Christ’s body and blood if we are to share eternal life. Of course our spiritual lives go beyond the walls of the Church. It is “in the city” that our faith can be tested by people and accepted practices. We can choose to conform or choose to “walk by faith.” Pray to God that we might be spiritually wise and strengthened by Eucharist. Pray further that when we are challenged or encouraged by someone with Gospel wisdom, we might have the faith and humility to listen. God bless!

    STEWARDSHIP THOUGHT A wise person recognizes that all we have comes from God. A wise person thanks God every day for all His many blessings. A wise person realizes that God has blessed us for a reason and He wants us to be partners with Him in His work here on earth.

    TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION If the alb is the premier baptismal garment, then why are there so many other styles of vesture in evidence in our parishes? In some places, altar servers and other ministers might wear a garment, usually black, called a cassock. Over that is normally worn a white garment (a “surplice”), reminiscent of the alb but much shorter, often of starched linen and trimmed with lace. The cassock is not a liturgical garment, but a clerical robe. Its origins lie in the religious habit of monks. By the late Middle Ages, diocesan priests and clerics increasingly were encouraged to emulate religious priests. Very small boys were often apprenticed to monasteries, especially for music education, and would be invested with a cassock and sometimes even inducted into the ranks of clerics. For centuries before the Reformation, it was required that all men entering higher education be clerics, and so the cassock and its variations became familiar academic garb. At the Reformation, many ministers retained a form of the cassock as ordinary dress, rejecting liturgical garments. In the seventeenth century, the English Civil War was in part provoked by the Archbishop of Canterbury’s insistence that ministers wear surplices. Although the Episcopal Church now retains “cassock and surplice” as the normal dress for lay men and women assisting at liturgy, Catholics are increasingly attentive to the deeply traditional treasure of the alb, our baptismal robe, when special liturgical vesture is needed.
