A Christmas Shoppers' Prayer
The Light Is On For You
The Advent Season offers a great opportunity to be reconciled with God through the Sacrament of Reconciliation. On each of the four Wednesday evenings of Advent, Dec. 2, 9, 16, & 23, Father Tom or Father Sinisa will be available for the Sacrament of Reconciliation from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the lower church, as well as at the regular time on Saturdays.
St. Paul and Resurrection Parish Collaborative
St. Paul and Resurrection Parishes continue to prepare to become a collaborative in June, 2016, i.e. two distinct parishes (as they have always been) under the leadership of one pastor and one pastoral team. The purpose of forming a collaborative is to strengthen parishes to carry out what Saint John Paul II called The New Evangelization. The New Evangelization is the Church’s call to us to go out and evangelize, that is, to share the Gospel with baptized Catholics, who may have heard the message of the Gospel before but need to hear it in new ways in order to be able to embrace it. The message of the Gospel is also called the Good News of Jesus Christ, which is to say that God entered the world through Christ, who suffered and died for our sins and rose from the dead, to ensure for us the promise of eternal life. That is God’s saving promise, which is why we sometimes refer to the Gospel and Good News as the Story of Salvation. Sometimes we call it the kerygma, which is a Greek word for proclamation, because we think of this Good News as the most important of any and all possible proclamations.
The New Evangelization is about reaching out to those who have heard the Good News. It is bringing that message forward with new ardor, new methods, and new expressions, so that the people of this age are able to hear the gospel with fresh ears, and, we hope, commit or renew their commitment to being intentional disciples of Jesus Christ.
We would suggest that the Second Vatican Council was a missionary council, an evangelizing council, which started the movement of the Church towards The New Evangelization. Pope Paul VI continued encouraging us all in this direction when he wrote a document called Evangelization in the Modern World, Pope St. John Paul II explicitly called for a new Evangelization, Pope Benedict provided the framework for how we should engage in this New Evangelization and Pope Francis is an example for all of us in how to live it out.
