Go that extra mile. Be holy! Be Perfect as God is!
7th Sunday in Ordinary Time
February 19, 2017

     The Second Vatican Council’s document Lumen Gentium has a section that is called, “The Universal Call to Holiness.”  And this document primarily focuses on the holiness of the Church and the Clergy.  However, this document like the wise Spirit of the Council also focuses on the holiness of the laity.  You see prior to the Council, there wasn't much emphasis on the holiness of the laity.  The only ones called to be “holy” was the priests and religious.  But now, the Church teaches that all of us are called to be holy.  Lumen Gentium #40 says, “In order to reach this perfection the faithful should use the strength dealt out to them by Christ’s gift, so that, following, in his footsteps and confirmed to his image, doing the will of God in everything, they may be wholeheartedly devote themselves to the glory of God and to the service of their neighbor.”   We all have a call brothers and sisters by Mother Church to go that extra mile.  To be holy and be perfect as God is perfect!
       And this is the main message of the readings we have this Sunday.  The readings continue to ask us to take our faith and our discipleship up to the next level.  Up the bet, the ante, take the risk to be continually transformed into the likeness of God, who created us in his own divine image.  As we can read in the first reading already from the Old Testament, God is calling Israel to be holy as he is holy.  Why?  Because he has chosen them as his own!  And so it is the same for Jesus in our gospel.  Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect!
      Well we all know that this is not easy.  How can this be done?  What can be done in order for me to do this?  Simply put.  We try and keep trying to be holy.  And Jesus tells us as he told his disciples, do not be evil.  Be nice!  Don't seek revenge on your enemies.  Love them and kill them with kindness.  Give whole heartedly whether it is money, clothes, or whatever someone is seeking.  As St. Mother Teresa said, “give until it hurts.”  Go the extra mile for someone out of love for Jesus, even if you don't “feel” like going or may not get repaid.  Do not be angry, try not to use foul language and in all of this pray and ask God for the grace that in all circumstances all of us may grow in our discipleship and fall deeper and deeper in love with God.
      God created us to be good people, and despite our sinful inclinations all we can do is try.   To follow Jesus and his examples to die to self out of love for him is the only way we can gain our holiness.  Our holiness will not happen overnight.  It’s a lifelong journey with and through Jesus that we will obtain this.  Be faithful to God, to your families, and your friends.  When we fall ask for forgiveness, go to confession (a sure way to be holy!) and get the strength and will power to overcome this shortcomings of ours through the grace and power of the Eucharist.
     Point is this: we are all called to be holy and holiness comes through Prayer, Mass, and Confession.  But with this comes also comes work at it too.  We can only be holy through Jesus Christ who is holiness itself by our relationship with him and witnessing to our relationship with Christ to our family, friends, and all acquaintances and people we meet.   Holiness comes with a smile!

Dear OLPH Parishioners,
     For the past two weeks, I have informed you through this corner about our plan to do our Stewardship Commitment on the Sundays of Lent this year.  Our Parish Stewardship Committee prepared Commitment Cards to be filled up by every parishioner in the Masses on our Commitment Sundays.  These Commitment Cards would serve as our covenant with God to develop Stewardship as a way of life and the Spirituality that comes out of it.  It is very inspiring to listen to the personal witnessing of some of our parishioners about their stewardship journey.  The inspiration is strengthened through stewardship tidbits and blurbs that we read after the homily through our Power Points in our Sunday Masses.  We have acknowledged those who have continuously committed themselves in our Stewardship of Time and Talent.  We have disclosed financial reports as our way to promote Stewardship of Treasure.  We also have expanded our Ministry Fairs, not only limited on one Sunday in a year, but a couple of Sundays to give more opportunities for parishioners to see our ministries in a more comprehensive way.
     Why Commitment Sundays?  It is not enough to know what others are doing for the parish and the school.  It is high time to participate and get involved so that the next story we will share will also be your and our story, and not only their story.  So, through these Commitment Sundays, we are inviting you to live more fully the Spirituality of Stewardship.  We thought of doing Commitment Sundays, instead of only one Sunday, because this would give more opportunities for us to consider the details of our commitment.
      Again, I am inviting you to fill up your Commitment Cards on those designated Sundays of Lent. Fr. Andrew Kimberling explains, “Commitment Cards may be called covenants, faith promises or pledges.   Stewardship is a spirituality and that means doing rather than just thinking.  Stewardship Spirituality means making a commitment to become a good steward and commitment cards are important in the process of making stewardship a way of life.”
