A Family Perspective The key word in today's gospel is "listen." We cannot change another person; not alone, not with others and not with a whole Church. All we can do is state our position and "if he listens to you" then he / she can take the steps necessary to change themselves. Change comes from within.

We can assure the continued existence of many important programs that help tens of thousands in our Diocese each year; education of our seminary students, care of the sick and needy are among them. To-date the parish will receive a refund of $110.00 plus any additional donations received at diocese in our parish name.

A Statement from Bishop Daniel E. Thomas Regarding the Impact of Hurricane Harvey

As we witness the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and the subsequent flooding, the people in Texas and beyond need our support in the days, weeks and months to come. This is a time when Catholics, and all people of faith, need to come together in prayer and action for those whose lives, families and homes are being effected. As our Holy Father, Pope Francis eloquently says, 'Wherever someone is reaching out, asking for a helping hand in order to get up, this is where our presence - and the presence of the Church which sustains and offers hope - must be." I encourage all people to join the larger community to help those whose essential needs are compromised. By working through reputable charitable organizations we can fulfill the mission of all human persons to help one another in times of need. Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo stands ready to accept your donations and will send 100 percent of the proceeds to our sister Catholic Charities on the ground Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Toledo joins those

praying for those who perished, their families, and untold numbers of people who are injured, homeless, or facing evacuation after the devastation wrought from Hurricane Harvey. Recovery efforts are expected to take months, if not years. Your financial support will help with long-term recovery efforts, including needed pastoral care and support, case management to assist disaster victims navigate the system, and direct assistance to people unable to get insurance coverage or sufficient government support from FEMA. As in past disasters, Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo is collecting and forwarding donations dollar for dollar to sister Catholic Charities agencies. Checks should be made out to Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo, with a Hurricane Harvey Recovery notation, and sent to 1933 Spielbusch Avenue, Toledo, OH 43604. Note: we will take up a second collection this weekend for Hurricane Harvey victims.

Correcting Lovingly

T oday’s readings are about fraternal correction. We are responsible for our

brother’s good, and God expects us to help him. This means being a good example and holding him or her to a gospel standard. If that means a hard dose of the truth, so be it, as long as that truth is given in love.

Ezekiel was a prophet who knew how to preach fire and brimstone, but he could also be tender and compassionate. He prophesied both about the destruction of Israel and how Yahweh would turn their hearts of stone into flesh. In Michelangelo’s fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, the strength of this rugged prophet is evident. That Ezekiel is turned to listen to a cherub says a lot about his humility as well.

God told Ezekiel that if he didn’t preach to the wicked, God would hold him responsible for their deaths. However, if he did preach and the wicked still didn’t heed him, Ezekiel would be safe. The moral is, when God asks us to preach, take it seriously!

Jesus tells us if our brother sins against us, we should confront him in the presence of two witnesses. He even encourages us to bring the Church in as judge if a dispute between believers isn’t resolved. However, this should always be done with love.

As humble Christians, we should accept corrections when they are done correctly. No one likes to be told he or she is wrong, but if we are we should rejoice in the truth, even if it hurts. And we should thank those who love us enough to correct us.

—Fr. Mark Haydu, LC

September 10, 2017Twenty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time (A)Ez 33:7–9Rom 13:8–10Mt 18:15–20

“The commandments…are summed up in this saying, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself ’ ” (Romans 13:9).

For ReflectionDo I find the idea of charitable correction uncomfortable? Why or why not? How willing am I to receive correction from my peers? My spouse? My child? My boss?

I want my children to be merciful and forgiving like Jesus, but I don’t want them to be permissive of sin because someone else thinks it’s OK. How can I teach this balance?

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches, “Education in the faith byparents should begin in the child’s earliest years. This already happens

when family members help one another to grow in faith by the witness of a Christian life in keeping with the Gospel” (CCC 2226). The balance of advocating the magnitude of God’s mercy without diminishing the severity of sin is best taught through witness.

You should hold your children accountable (and vice versa) and explain with loving candor how lax attitudes and actions have consequences. As we are taught in Proverbs 27:5, “Better is an open rebuke than a love that remains hidden.”

An intimate relationship with God also helps. It’s easier to instill greater compassion in ourselves and in others when we’ve experienced God’s infinite mercy firsthand. Jesus asked the woman caught in adultery, “‘Has no one condemned you?’ She replied, ‘No one, sir.’ Then Jesus said, ‘Neither do I condemn you. Go, [and] from now on do not sin any more’” (John 8:10–11).

Christ loves the sinner and despises the sin—but he doesn’t dwell on the sin. Instead, Jesus rejoices when sinners enter a newfound relationship with his merciful Father, knowing that the experience of God’s mercy is the catalyst for ultimate change and lasting conversion, where neither the sinner is condemned nor the sin condoned.

A Word From Pope Francis“If you are not capable of performing fraternal reproof with love, with charity, in truth and with humility, you will offend, damage that person’s heart: you will create an extra tale that wounds and you will become a blind hypocrite, as Jesus says...a sign which perhaps can help us: when one sees something wrong and feels that he should correct it but perceives a certain pleasure in doing so, then it is time

to pay attention, because that is not the Lord’s way. In the Lord there is always the cross, the difficulty of doing something good.”

—Morning meditation, “Mending holes in the fabric of the church,” September 12, 2014
