Weekly Bulletin - Holy Cross Catholic Church
FIFTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY, JULY 10, 2016
Random thoughts from you know who...
It is one thing to know something; it is entirely
another thing to act on that knowledge. Indeed, it
is a great accomplishment to go from knowing to
doing. Why?
Knowing is safe and requires little or no risk.
Knowing is the stuff of committees who can talk
endlessly about an issue but never decide to take
action. Knowing is comfortable, reasoning and
serene. Knowing is full of hope, promises and
good intentions, but knowing will take us nowhere
unless we are willing to take the first step, the
first attempt toward doing.
Doing, on the other hand, reveals who we are
and what we stand for. Doing requires courage,
strength and determination, because doing can
get us into trouble. Doing must be fueled by faith
and prayer. In order to be authentic, doing must
persevere.
Today’s scripture texts show that God is aware
of the human struggle to transform knowing into
doing. In the passage from Deuteronomy, Moses
is featured as speaking for God, imploring the Israelites to take to heart the laws of the Lord.
These you already know, says Deuteronomy; indeed, God’s command is very near. It is already
in your mouth and in your hearts. You have only
to carry it out.
Today’s Gospel features the uniquely Lucan
Good Samaritan who, along with two others,
chanced upon a man lying on the roadside
stripped, beaten, robbed and half-dead. A priest
and a Levite saw the man, and, of course, they
knew what had to be done. But knowing did not
move them to do it. Both passed by on the opposite side of the road. Would distancing themselves from what they had seen ease their minds
and consciences? This we cannot know or judge.
But we can admire and imitate the Samaritan
who came upon the scene, saw and knew what
was needed, and then allowed compassion to
move him to do what he could. His help and aid
for a person who perhaps would have shunned
him under ordinary circumstance were beyond
the ordinary because his compassion moved him
to act. He did not hold back.
What is it that holds us back when we come
face to face with human need? Barbara Brown
Taylor, an Episcopal priest, tells of a time when
she was preparing a sermon on today’s Gospel
(The Preaching Life, Cowley Pub., N.Y.: 1993).
As she drove to work, she mulled over it in her
head. Suddenly, she came upon a car with its
hood up along the road. As she approached, a
tall black man stepped into the road, holding up a
pair of jumper cables, looking her straight in the
eye. Several hundred pieces of information went
through her mind in about three seconds: the
man needs help … you are a single woman alone
in a car … the man needs help … never open
your door to a stranger … go to the nearest service station and send a mechanic … the man
needs help … what if he cannot afford a mechanic … the man needs help … I’m sorry, I cannot
help … maybe the next person will. At that, she
drove off to work to complete research on the
Good Samaritan.
Brown Taylor tells the frustration many of us
feel because of the gap between knowing what
should be done and doing it, and suggests that
after all the arguments are made and all the issues are debated, it comes down to one thing,
just do it! Love God, Love neighbor, be a neighbor. If we want the world to be different, to be
better, “do some love,” says Brown Taylor. “Do a
little, do a lot, but do some.”
Today’s Gospel illustrates the advice of Brown
Taylor and brings to life the special mission of the
church as shared by Pope Francis in a conversation with Jesuit Fr. Antonio Spadaro (My Door Is
Always Open, Bloomsbury, N.Y.: 2013). The
church should be like a field hospital after a battle; it should be like a nurse who heals wounds,
one at a time. “Samaritan” in its spirituality, the
church’s is a ministry of mercy that washes,
cleans, relieves and heals both body and spirit.
As one who exemplified a Samaritan spirituality, Mother Teresa founded a religious community
to “do love” among the needy and sick of India.
Now, her sisters number 4,500 and are “doing
love” in 133 countries. In order to ensure that the
community remains true to its spirituality and purpose, the sisters, in addition to the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, take a fourth vow of
“wholehearted free service to the poorest of the
poor.” This vow both reflects and affirms the
church’s favored option for the poor as first
voiced by Fr. Pedro Arrupe in a 1968 letter to his
fellow Jesuits. This option was embraced and affirmed by the Latin American bishops and has
become vital to the church’s mission.
This we know. What shall we do about it?
