FOSTERING STEWARDSHIP
AS A WAY OF LIFE
READINGS FOR SUNDAY, JANUARY 24, 2016
THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
First Reading: Nehemiah 8:2-4a, 5-6, 8-10
Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 12:12-30
or 12:12-14, 27
Gospel: Luke 1:1-4, 4:14-21
FOCUS: We are called to use the unique gifts and
talents that God has given us to further the work and
mission of the Church.
Today’s reading from the First Letter of Paul to the
Corinthians reminds us that, by virtue of our baptism, we
are members of Christ’s body. We have a sacred duty and
solemn obligation to use the unique gifts and talents God
has given us to further the work and mission of the
Church. Mindful of this, let us share our gifts generously
so many others might come to know Jesus.
LITURGY OF THE WORD:
The first reading tells of how those Israelites who
returned from exile in Babylon to live in Jerusalem
joined together in renewing their commitment to be faithful to God and his commandments. The second reading
reminds us that we are parts and members of the one
body of Christ. Today’s Gospel recalls the beginnings of
Jesus’ public ministry.
PARISH SACRIFICIAL GIVING
The US Bishops’ pastoral on stewardship reinforces
today’s reading from 1 Corinthians: “Because its
individual members do collectively make up the body of
Christ, that body’s health and well-being are the
responsibility of the members--the personal responsibility
of each of us. We all are stewards of the Church.”
Parish Sacrificial Giving Summary
Thank you for your continued sacrificial gifts to St.
Mary’s.

THE PASTOR’S PAGE
My dear people of St. Mary’s,
The Pastor’s Page was on hiatus for the last two weeks as I, and several parishioners, made a
pilgrimage to the Holy Land. As with my first trip, it is almost impossible to describe in words. We traveled
with a total of 204 pilgrims, some eighty percent from the United States, and the rest from other countries
around the world. (I do not know why, but I have often noticed that Texans and Australians are always
disproportionally represented on pilgrimage trips!)
In my homily at Mass on the first night, I stressed to all of the participants that this trip was not their
idea, even if they thought it was. By definition a pilgrimage is something God calls us to. It is a way He has
chosen to bestow upon us some particular grace He has reserved just for us. So many people came up to me
throughout the course of the pilgrimage to say that that one fact, the idea that they were called, helped
them to keep the whole trip in perspective.
So often, upon returning, people will ask you what was your favorite part of the pilgrimage. That
question is really almost impossible to answer. Instead, a pilgrimage is more a series of special moments
distributed throughout an extraordinary journey. It may come late one night in a conference room of the
hotel as half a dozen priests hear confessions for the pilgrims. It may be a moment on a long walk to a holy
site where a pilgrim takes you aside to ask for counsel or advice, or just to share what the pilgrimage has
meant to them.
Certainly for me one of the highlights was being able to celebrate
Mass on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, and then to travel to the
actual site of Jesus’ baptism at the River Jordan on the same Feastday.
There among the bulrushes, I was privileged to lead the people in the
renewal of their baptismal promises. It was very moving to stand there
on the banks of that ancient river at that historic site where St. John the
Baptist conducted his ministry. There at that very spot he baptized so
many, including his cousin, our Savior. I had a branch from an olive tree
with me and, upon completing the renewal, I was able to dip the branch
in the waters of the Jordan and sprinkle the people with it.
Then, as some of the group led the others in singing a hymn at the water’s edge, an idea suddenly came
to me. I began to pull the small olive leaves off the branch one by one and give them to the assembled
crowd. While everyone continued singing, the throng moved in closely and I was surrounded by a sea of
outstretched hands. As I placed leaf after leaf in the palms of the pilgrims, those hands were withdrawn and
replaced by others, outstretched and seeking. The thought came to me that this must have been a very vivid
recreation of what Jesus saw every day throughout His public ministry. As He passed through that land, He
must have been daily surrounded by an immense throng, all reaching to Him with outstretched and
imploring hands. That was one moment of an extraordinary pilgrimage I will never forget.
I am very grateful to Fr. Edsel Delfin, who assisted us here last summer, for taking such good care of
the parish and all of you during the two weeks I was away.
Before my departure, I asked for your prayers for me and for all the pilgrims on our journey; I thank
you on behalf of all those who made the pilgrimage. And please know that you were with us in our prayers
every step of the way. I will speak to you more about that next week.
—Fr. McCartney

This year members of the Order of Preachers, the Dominicans,
celebrate the 800th anniversary of their founding. St. Dominic de
Guzman produced one of the great reforms in the history of the
church, which continues to this day among friars, nuns, sisters
and laity. We are blessed to have the Dominican Sisters of
Amityville living in our convent and contributing to the life of our
parish. Please take one of the commemorative prayer cards you
will find at the doors of the church and hall this weekend, to
celebrate the 800th Jubilee of the Order of St. Dominic in the
Church.
REMEMBERING THOSE WHO SERVE
Lord, hold these men and women in your
loving hands and protect them as they
protect us and bless them for their selfforgetting acts. We pray for peace in our
world and an end to war. Amen.
