GOD’S WORD TODAY “This is enough, O Lord!” How often has even the most dedicated believer echoed Elijah’s cry of despair, heard in today’s first reading? Elijah was frustrated and exhausted because the people refused to heed his prophetic words. We are all aware of friends or relatives who seem to have more than their share of misfortune. Perhaps we may be experiencing severe hardships as we come to Mass today. If this is the case, then we are in the right place. It is here that we, like Elijah, can find food that will sustain us, even when all life seems to offer us is frustration and misfortune. Jesus promises us today that he is the living bread. Let us be strengthened by the living bread that is God’s word.

PASTOR’S CORNER I have always liked the reading about Elijah and the broom tree. I can identify with the prophet who wanted to stay in the shade of the tree, until he was “nudged” by the angel to journey to the mountain of the Lord, Horeb. In our lives today, we are challenged by many things in our secular world. We can avoid or ignore hunger, conflict, poverty or other things that conflict with the teaching of Jesus. But, thanks be to God, I find modern day angels come along to nudge me to live up to a calling to be holy, to be prophetic. We don’t want to sadden the Holy Spirit whose expectations are high. But we can live up to that calling with the help of the Eucharist and the grace of God we find in our brothers and sisters. Pray to God, that as we have been nourished by the Bread of Life, we might continue on our journey to the kingdom rather than “resting” at some oasis of life that isn’t on God’s roadmap. God bless and have a good week!
Fr. Mike Garvey

STEWARDSHIP THOUGHT Jesus knew that the stewardship journey would be difficult, so He gave us the nourishment of the Eucharist. When we take time to join our sacrifices with the sacrifice of the Mass, we find the strength to give and joy in our giving.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION In an age given to slogan T-shirts, one of the last bastions of “dressing up” is the wedding. Everyone seems to stretch toward the old ideal of “Sunday best” for these moments. In our tradition, clothing is immensely important. Coming out of the baptismal water, we are immediately vested with a white garment. “You have clothed yourself in Christ,” the new Christian is told, and a white garment is the token of being born into God’s family. Sadly, this is the last time most Christians wear this garb until their funeral, when the family spreads a pall as a reminder of baptismal identity. Increasingly today, we are seeing the alb as the proper garb for liturgical ministers, men and women. In ancient Rome, sleeveless tunics of varying colors were worn by everyone, and so at baptism the new Christians could be expected to wear their new garb under their everyday clothes. Sleeves were a problem for ancient Romans, who thought they were a barbarian fashion. As is so often the case, eventually the barbarians won the day, and by the third century the long-sleeved garment worn by ministers today was familiar liturgical garb.
