“Stand, Sit and Kneel”

Throughout the celebration of the Eucharist the Catholic faithful are familiar with certain gestures and postures during the Mass.
 
At the beginning of the Mass during the Entrance Hymn all the way to the Collect (Opening Prayer) all remain standing until after the Collect.  Standing is a sign of respect to authority.  As thus we stand at the beginning and ending of Mass a respect to the priest and his power of authority.  We stand at the reading of the Gospel just as the Israelites stood upright to listen to God’s word.  Standing also “a sign that we are a resurrected people”.  This is us joining in the same resurrection that our savior Jesus, died and rose from the death.
 
Sitting is seen in a posture during the Liturgy of the Word, Offertory and after communion.  Sitting in it’s sense is a sign of teaching (as some bishop’s will preach sitting at the cathedra or the bishop’s chair) but sitting is also a sign of listening.  As we sit to listen to the readings, except for the gospel and also we sit at the preparation of gifts, as paying attention to the gifts being offered for the sacrifice of the Mass.
 
Kneeling became part of the liturgy during the consecration and after Holy Communion for others.  Kneeling was a sign of being a penitent, recognizing our sinfulness and asking for God’s mercy and love.  Kneeling in the medieval times took another meaning as a sign of adoration and respect as we would kneel when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed in the monstrance during Benedictions.

The newly ordained Fr. EJ Resinto of the Diocese of Honolulu is our new Parochial Vicar.
 
Fr. EJ will be arriving here at OLPH on Monday (July 25) and will officially start his time and work as the new parochial of this parish.
 
Fr. EJ a local born priest from the island of Kauai was just ordained by Bishop Larry Silva on July 9, 2016 at the Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Peace.
 
Therefore, in the spirit of hospitality and aloha, we will have a “Welcome Potluck Dinner” for Fr. EJ Resinto on Saturday (July 30) at 6:30pm in the breezeway.
 
On that same weekend at all the Masses, there will be time for food/fellowship after Mass and a chance for you to get to meet and greet our new and young priest.  Also maybe a great opportunity to ask for a blessing from him as his hands are still fresh with Sacred Oil from the ordination.
 
We thank God for the gift of this young man’s life into the priesthood and we continue to pray for more young men to enter the call to serve the Lord of the Harvest in His vineyard.  Let us also keep Fr. EJ in our daily prayers as he starts his new ministry here with us at OLPH.
