SEPTEMBER 12, 2012

1 Cor 7:25- 31 / Lk 6:20-26

1 CORINTHIANS 7:25- 31
With regard to those who remain virgins, I have no special commandment from the Lord, but I give some advice, hoping that I am worthy of trust by the mercy of the Lord. I think this is good in these hard times in which we live. It is good for someone to remain as he is. If you are married, do not try to divorce your wife; if you are not married, do not marry. He who marries does not sin, nor does the young girl sin who marries. Yet they will face disturbing experiences, and I would like to spare you. I say this, brothers and sisters: time is running out, and those who are married must live as if not married; those who weep as if not weeping; those who are happy as if they were not happy; those buying something as if they had not bought it, and those enjoying the present life as if they were not enjoying it. For the order of this world is vanishing.

LUKE 6:20-26
Then, looking at his disciples, Jesus said, "Fortunate are you who are poor, for the kingdom of God is yours. Fortunate are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled. Fortunate are you who weep now, for you will laugh. Fortunate are you when people hate you, when they reject you and insult you and number you among criminals, because of the Son of Man. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for a great reward is kept for you in heaven. Remember, that is how the ancestors of this people treated the prophets. But alas for you who have wealth, for you have been comforted now. Alas for you who are full, for you will go hungry. Alas for you who laugh now, for you will mourn and weep. Alas for you when people speak well of you, for that is how the ancestors of these people treated the false prophets.

Across all cultures, the name is important. Parents give their child a name that will carry their hopes and dreams to the future, or a name from the past, calling a beloved ancestor forward into the present. As the child grows, he puts the stamp of his own identity on his name. A name becomes the sum of one's experiences. A good name is passed on to the next generation.

Our parish carries Mary's name. We invoke Mary's name, as she is our mother and our help. We often do not remember that Mary, the Queen, is Queen of the Church Militant. She plays a great part in our struggle against evil and suffering.

It was Pope Innocent XI who created the feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary in 1683. Under her banner, the King of Poland defended the walls of Vienna against the massive army of the Turks. Against all odds, the Turks were routed.

Mary is family; she is our mother. Which aspect of her great and wonderful person do we, as her children, bring into the future?

Finally, we pray for one another, for those who have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most.

Have a good day!
