My dear Parishioners,

Next week, I will be at all the masses presenting various financial realities of our parish. I will be speaking about our new ABCD goal, the state of the parish Finances and the new amount of our assessments. I have been told by some, in the past, that they do not come to church to hear about money.

February 22, 2020.

In brushing up for "Catholic Jeopardy," it might help to know that there is only one feast on the calendar for a thing, rather than a person or mystery. It's for a chair: Saint Peter's chair in fact.

After the Resurrection, there can be no doubt that the disciples reserved a special place for Simon Peter in the upper room. Later, Peter became the bishop of Antioch in today's Syria, the place where we were first called Christians. From there, he went to Rome, the center of the Empire, where it is said that Peter sat in a chair in the house of Priscilla and Aquila to instruct his flock. Jesus, in entrusting the keys of the Kingdom to Peter and his successors, entrusted his compassion and mercy to them, and charged them with pointing to the Kingdom of God. Compassion and mercy are to resonate through their teaching.

Since the ancient sign of a teacher is the chair ("disciple" literally means one who sits at the feet of a teacher), Peter's chair has long been treasured. Today there is a symbolic shrine of Peter's chair above the main altar of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. This monument is the last work of Bernini, a huge bronze throne supported by four doctors of the Church: Augustine and Ambrose from the Western Church, and Chrysostom and Athanasius from the East. High above it is the alabaster window of the descent of the Holy Spirit.

"For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:20)

The scribes and Pharisees lived according to the letter of the law, and they used this to elevate themselves above the other people. Jesus is clear, only the love that you have in your heart will place you in the path to heaven. Simply following church rules out of obligation and attending mass on Sunday like the Pharisees is not the pathway.

"Porque les digo que, a menos que su justicia sea superior a la de los escribas y fariseos, nunca entrarán en el reino de los cielos". (MATEO 5:20)

Los escribas y fariseos vivían de acuerdo con la letra de la ley, y lo usaban para elevarse por encima de las otras personas. Jesús es claro, sólo el amor que tienes en tu corazón te colocará en el camino hacia el cielo. Simplemente seguir las reglas de la iglesia por obligación y asistir a misa los domingos como los fariseos no es el camino.
