THE PADRE'S PORTION 

2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Brothers and Sisters:  What are you good at doing? We started a new calendar year not too long ago. It is the fashion to talk about ideas for self-improvement. Deacon Matt pointed out in a homily about just how much of the culture is focused on self-improvement. Let us say you become very good at a sport. Perhaps, you could do like the Chinese have made popular, and you could do amazing acrobatics. This would also be good. These endeavors are good; please do not mistake my meaning.  Our concern as a Christian is always, “Will this life help me as a Christian?” We can become great at something. We can earn a bunch of money doing it. We can have a glorious past when we get older.  We could even get really really good at something. Have you seen the Robots of 2019? Is there a limit to our abilities? My idea today is to not discourage, but to encourage. If we only do things that help in this world. We are headed for a spiritual crash. Let us remember to use this New Year to grow as a Christian. If we aim for Heaven and Earth, we succeed in both. If we aim for Earth only, we will lose both.

                                                             Fr. David Tate

                                                                So let our sacrifice be in your presence today
    and find favor before you;
            for those who trust in you cannot be                               put to shame.
And now we follow you with our whole heart,
    we fear you and we seek your face.
Do not put us to shame,
             but deal with us in your kindness                           and great mercy.
Deliver us in accord with your wonders,
         and bring glory to your name, O Lord. 
 
                                                                                                                                                                                  Daniel 3:40-43
