From the Pastor's Desk

Fr. Eli

Dear Parishioners,

Happy Feast of the Baptism of the Lord.  This feast closes out the Christmas Season, and we move back into ordinary time.  I want to encourage you all to consider being involved in the Men’s conference March 9th, the women’s conference is March 23rd.  Next Sunday we will have an opportunity to come together to pray for Life.  We will be doing an hour of prayer at 3 PM on Jan. 20th at St. Joseph (Crosby).  There will be a short talk, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and some time of adoration.  Please consider doing this or other events to continue the work of being supportive of human life and dignity.  January 22nd 1973 was the tragic day that abortion was legalized in our nation.  It’s a day to offer prayers, fasting, penance and possibly take some time to be involved in a March or other civic activity for promoting the cause for life.  Let’s make an effort to continue to support life in all its stages.

You may have noticed that during the Christmas Season I chanted the Mass prayers.  This is an effort to emphasize the importance of these days and to set them apart from other days.  There ought to be a tangible difference between seasons, and celebrations.  The Church actually gives direction to the singing and of the prayers and the parts of the Mass in a document called Musicam Sacram (Sacred Music).  Here is a little section of the document that you might find interesting:

For the celebration of the Eucharist with the people, especially on Sundays and feast days, a form of sung Mass (Missa in cantu) is to be preferred as much as possible, even several times on the same day.

The distinction between solemn, sung and read Mass, sanctioned by the Instruction of 1958 (n. 3), is retained, according to the traditional liturgical laws at present in force. However, for the sung Mass (Missa cantata), different degrees of participation are put forward here for reasons of pastoral usefulness, so that it may become easier to make the celebration of Mass more beautiful by singing, according to the capabilities of each congregation.

These degrees are so arranged that the first may be used even by itself, but the second and third, wholly or partially, may never be used without the first. In this way the faithful will be continually led towards an ever greater participation in the singing.

The following belong to the first degree:
(a) In the entrance rites: the greeting of the priest together with the reply of the people; the prayer.
(b) In the Liturgy of the Word: the acclamations at the Gospel.
(c) In the Eucharistic Liturgy: the prayer over the offerings; the preface with its dialogue and the Sanctus; the final doxology of the Canon, the Lord's prayer with its introduction and embolism; the Pax Domini; the prayer after the Communion; the formulas of dismissal.

There is also a 2nd and 3rd degree, but we still need to work towards that.  If you are interested you can read more in the document. 

Let us Proceed, In the Name of Christ,

-Fr. Eli

Diocese News from the Northern Cross

Betsy Kneepkens: Which children are really ‘sheltered’? Those who don’t know about Jesus

Some have suggested that my husband and I have sheltered our children.

I cannot deny the fact that we intentionally made decisions to shield our kids from potentially harmful situations or incidents that would negatively impact the foundation we were trying to provide them. I am not just talking physical circumstances but emotional, intellectual, and spiritual, as well. We worked hard not to expose them too early to specific experiences where the visual scenes would forever plague their memory. Often — I mean very often — my children did not participate in activities that were commonplace for other children.

Father Richard Kunst: Inviting ‘Christmas and Easter Catholics’ back to Mass should be our main goal

I like to bring humor into classes I teach and homilies that I preach, because I think humor is a good way to get through to people about the importance of faith.

As I look back on my ministry I remember many times when certain points of humor were particularly well received; one was several years ago, right before Mass started at my parish of St. Joseph’s in Gnesen (the prettiest parish in the Diocese of Duluth, if you ask me). St. Joseph’s is a small, rural parish, so there tend to be other critters in the area besides humans. It was during Advent when someone inadvertently allowed two dogs to sneak in the door. They were good-sized dogs, and they ran up and down the aisle of the small church, which caused a bit of a stir with the parishioners. After the dogs were finally corralled and let out, I told the congregation that I can tell Christmas is getting near, because I hadn’t seen those two dogs since Easter.
