2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time Dear Family, Over the Christmas break, the new flooring was put in our social hall, in the main room, the kitchen and the bathrooms. It looks great. We also replaced toilets in the bathrooms and repainted those rooms and the stalls, so they are looking real good, too. I hope you all get a chance to see the new flooring and the new work done. The improvements certainly make our social hall a more beautiful and functional place to gather with family and friends and also with our parish family. They will help our hall to be an instrument of building community, unity and the bonds of friendship in Jesus Christ between all of us. THANK YOU to those who helped move appliances, tables, chairs and other items, who removed and installed toilets and stalls, who painted and did all the other things that were needed to prepare for and finish up after the flooring people. A special thanks to our Y-Disciple youth who volunteered their time and effort to painting the bathrooms! God bless you. Now we’ll be looking forward to the next phase of the project, which is to put in a new dropped ceiling to help with the sound in the hall. Thanks to all of you for your ongoing support of this project, spiritual and material, without this would not be possible. There was a study done that asked people that they wanted to avoid the most, that they feared the most. Not surprisingly, death and public speaking were near the top of the list, but also on that list was silence. We often fear silence because we feel like somebody should be talking. We are not used to silence in a culture that promotes constant noise, activity and stimulation. But Pope Francis recently talked about silence, namely in the Mass. He said moments of silence in the Mass should be intentional times of prayer, recollection and communion with God, rather than just being times to be quiet or not speak. “Silence is not reduced to the absence of words, but is the availability to listen to other voices: that of our heart and, above all, that of the Holy Spirit.” In silence, then, we discover “the importance of listening to our soul and then opening it to the Lord.” He noted special moments of silence in the Mass. At the collect (opening prayer), after the priest says “Let us pray,” the congregation is exhorted to bring out “each one in his own heart, the personal intentions with which he participates in Mass… Perhaps we come from days of toil, of joy, of sorrow, and we want to tell the Lord, to invoke his help, to ask that he be enar us; we have family members and friends who are ill or who are going through difficult trials; we wish to entrust to God the fate of the Church and the world.” The silences are written right into the Missal. At the Penitential Act, again there is silence for recollection, and in the silences following a reading or homily, everyone is called to meditate briefly on what they have heard. After Communion they should praise and pray to God in their hearts. Through silence and by meditating on the prayers of the Mass, the liturgy can become for us a “true school of prayer.” May we not be afraid of silence, but embrace it as a special moment to draw close to our God. Have a blessed week. Father Jeremy Hans
