Scripture Reflection:

Across the nations this week we remember the annual week praying for unity among Christian communities. Certainly the Israelites in today’s first reading from Isaiah understood the consequences of disunity.  In their own Jewish faith so much contention between leaders and people… neighbors and enemies… had resulted in their exiles. Once again back in their homeland, but no longer the power in charge, the prophet’s voice is strong. God will care for the people and God’s salvation will come. They will be his one people. In St. Paul’s New Testament letter he reminds the Corinthians (and us!) that we are all one body in Christ’s Spirit. All our gifts and talents belong to God, given to us to build up this body as one. Because of the Spirit this is possible. Sometimes it is difficult to believe that things can change… that we can find common ground to grow as God’s people. And so Jesus seems to give us some indirect advice in today’s gospel passage from John. Even when Jesus seemed reluctant to get involved in the Cana wedding problems (almost out of wine for the guests!) his  ministry started with this little thing. Pay attention to what is happening right around us and make that little difference. It began Jesus’ ministry. Maybe it will start up our ministry of reconciliation, healing, and unity in our relationships, in our countries …and in our faith communities.

 

Our Offertory collection each Sunday helps St. Pat’s pay their utility bills –
they charge CSA nothing for full use of the parish!

 

 

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

“The difference between a dreamer and a visionary is that a dreamer has his eyes closed
and a visionary has his eyes open.”

(Martin Luther King, Jr. from “I Have a Dream”)
