A Message from Our Pastor

Our Second reading today is from St. Paul’s letter to the Philippians. Partway through today’s section there is an unmistakable shift in the tone of his writing. It starts with St. Paul’s usual reasoned argument, but then it suddenly becomes more poetic and lyrical. Some speculate that he actually inserted into his letter a very early hymn that would have been sung during the Eucharistic celebration. This really is quite remarkable when you consider that this letter was written around the year 50AD! It is clear that from the very earliest days the Church had its hymns and songs. Whatever its origins, this hymn clearly affirms our belief in both Christ’s divinity and humanity. In terms of his divinity, Christ was “in the form of God and (enjoyed) equality with God…” In terms of his humanity, “he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in the likeness of men.” I find it a great help to my personal faith to remember that from the very earliest days of the Church up to this present time, it is truly the same faith and the same Eucharist we share together every time we come here to Mass.

During the 9:00 and 11:00 AM Mass this Sunday, Assumption Parish will honor, thank and pray for all our Catechists as we celebrate Catechetical Sunday (see the article by Cheryl Sokolowski, Director of Faith Formation, on page 6 of this bulletin). These fellow parishioners give of their time and talent helping us all, from the very youngest to the more mature, grow in our faith.  Please join me thanking these dedicated ministers.

~ Fr. Tony
