Fishing with St. James

Sunday, August 20, 2017

Fifty years ago on August 27, 1967, Sr. Catherine Ann Bones, SCL left her home in McCook, Nebraska and entered the Sisters of Charity in Leavenworth, Kansas. At the 10:30 a.m. Mass this Sunday she will renew her vows and we will pray with her in thanksgiving to God for her being at St. James for 1/50th of her faithful and fruitful ministry. On the website of the Sisters of Charity Leavenworth (SCL) I found this quote from their Constitution, “we are called ever to renew and...  continue reading

A feast is a day of special significance on the Roman Catholic Church calendar. The church ranks special days in the calendar in this order: solemnity, feast, and memorial. In common usage the word feast is used to cover almost any special saint’s day, such as the “feast of St. Patrick” which is an optional memorial or the “feast of St. Joseph” which is a solemnity. Some solemnities are Holy Days of Obligation like the “Assumption of the Blessed Virgin...  continue reading

Last weekend we honored our parish’s patron saint; St. James the Greater (July 25 is the actual feast day). James and his brother John were called by Jesus as they worked with their father in a fishing boat on the Sea of Galilee (Mark 1:19-20). James was one of the favored three (with Peter and John) who witnessed the Transfiguration, the raising to life of the daughter of Jairus and the agony in Gethsemani. On another occasion Jesus gave James and John the nickname “sons of...  continue reading

The opening prayer calls on us "to reject what is contrary to the gospel." Isn’t it contrary to the "good news" to waste and destroy God’s creation? The Creator has "greatly enriched the land" and invited all people to share in it and take good care of it.  In the second reading, St. Paul says "the world itself will be freed from its slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God." He also says that "all creation groans and is in agony."...  continue reading

The Church celebrates many saints’ feast days throughout the liturgical year and you can follow them on St. James’ church calendar that our local mortuaries give as a gift to us every year during Advent. A saint’s feast day generally, though not always, marks the day the saint died and entered into eternity, their birthday into life everlasting. The Church’s universal calendar celebrates only three birthdays and two conception days. This Saturday, June 24 was the...  continue reading

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ                             (Corpus Christi) It has been reported that when St. Augustine was giving the Eucharist to a communicant, instead of saying, “The body of Christ”, he would say: “Receive what you are.” In this communion we sacrifice the things that divide us to become in reality the body and blood of Christ. We are meant to be...  continue reading
