Gospel

Meditation

There is always something very tender and heart- warming about a kiss.

When someone who loves us offers us a kiss, it sends a clear message that we are valued and special. We occupy a unique place in their lives and have a dis- tinct purpose. Kissing cele- brates the wonder and beauty of human life. In a very powerful way, we are connected, through inti- mate touch, with another human being. With the in- carnation of Christ, God kissed humanity. God, re- vealed so perfectly in Jesus Christ, showed us that we have value and are made in God’s image and likeness.

Mortal human beings radi- ate with the presence of God and are worthy enough to reveal the inti- macy of the Divine Mystery.

The human race is not simply something God cre- ated from a distance but

something special within which God dwells.

It is no wonder then, why the poor hold such an hon- ored place in Jesus’ minis- try. They speak of God’s love and they cry out for the compassion that is due them as children of God.

Justice is about setting re- lationships right because we are all filled with God’s love and have dignity. The human story is understood as a partnership, a true and new covenant, celebrating a love relationship be- tween all of creation and their Creator. It is a story that does not end with the Cross or even the Resurrec- tion. The story finds its happy ending in the Ascen- sion. Our human narrative is still evolving and moving ever more closely toward that day when all will be one in Christ.

Jesus now sits at the right hand of the Father as the Christ of God. In the as- cended state, we see what

we are all meant to be- come and have before us the trans- formed life that

awaits all of creation. The disciples got a glimpse of what this transfiguration would be on the holy mountain and it is an es- sential part of the Good News we are called to pro- claim! Christ, now ascend- ed to the Father, sets our paths straight and gives us a look at what awaits us.

The day-to-day challenges of life o#en find us strug- gling with our incomplete- ness. Today’s celebration gives us the strength to persevere, knowing that we’ll eventually be well.

May our hearts be enlight- ened so that we can know this hope and the surpas- sing greatness of Christ’s power! ©LPi

The Memorial Chalice

One of the time-honored traditions of the Fourth Degree of the Knights of Columbus is the Memorial Chalice and Chalice Ceremony. When a Fourth Degree member in good standing passes away, a chalice is donated in his memory to the religious order or organization of his choosing. The beautiful Chalice Ceremony is conducted as part of the deceased Sir Knight's wake or funeral vigil. A chalice, engraved with the Sir Knight's name, is presented to the fami- ly, used in the memorial Mass, and then delivered to the recipient by representatives of the assembly according to the Sir Knight's wishes.

On May 5, 2021, at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary, a chalice presenta- tion was made in honor of Joe Morris to Deacon Marcos Rodriguez, by Wentzville Knights of Columbus 4th Degree Assembly #2620 members Larry Myers and Frank Klaas. Joe was a long-time mem- ber of St. Patrick Parish that passed away on April 4, 2020. He served in the U. S. Air Force for 8 years and was honorably discharged with the rank of Staff Sergeant. He graduated from St. Louis University in 1961 with a BSC in Commerce and was elected to Alpha Sigma Nu and Jesuit Honorary Fraternity. Joe served on the Federal Grand Jury for two years. He was an Oasis Reading Tutor for 15 years and a volunteer at DePaul Hospital and at St. Joseph Hospital at Lake St.

Louis. In 2014 he was awarded the Cardinal Regali Service Award.

Mass Intentions

Offering a Mass for a special intention is a long-standing tradition in the Catholic Church. It is usually considered that special graces are obtained for whom the Mass is said.

Why have a Mass offered?

Simply put, it’s the greatest form of prayer we have available to us on earth. It’s important to remember that once our loved ones have passed away, they can no longer pray for themselves. It’s up to us to keep praying for their souls! And since Mass is one form of pray- er, all of us at Mass are especially praying for that special intention along with the priest.

Who can you offer a Mass for?

It’s a common myth that a Mass may only be requested for the dead. You may request that a Mass be offered in celebration of an anniversary, sacrament, or birthday. A Mass can also be requested for those who are sick or suffering.

How do you request a Mass?

You can call or visit the parish office or send us an email to schedule a time and date. Mass intentions can be scheduled up to one year in advance. Requests will be honored on a first- come, first-serve basis and will be granted as close to the requested date and time as possi- ble. The suggested offering is $10 per intention.

Why are you asked to pay for them?

There is no price tag on a Mass and the person who has made an offering has not "bought a Mass," which is patently impossible. What has happened is that the priest has committed himself to celebrate a Mass according to the intentions of the person making the offering.

The important part is to remember that you are not paying for the graces from God (which are of infinite value and cannot be paid for), but for the material things that are involved with celebrating that particular Mass.

How do you let someone know an intention is scheduled?

You can send a card, text, or email. The parish office does has Mass cards available at no cost.

These look like a greeting or sympathy card but inside there is space to record the time and date of the Mass intention, whom the intention is from, and Fr. Brian signs them. These cards can be given to the living person for whom the Mass is offered or to the family of the deceased.

Where can you find more information?

For specific questions regarding Mass Intentions, contact the parish office at 636-332-9225, parishoffice@stpatsch.org, or visit www.stpatrickwentzville.org/intentions.

Reflection Question of the Week

Commissioned & Sent

Have you heard the Good News? If you're reading this, chances are you probably have. You've heard the good news that God became man and that Jesus suffered, died, and rose for you, me, and everyone in between. Do you know you're part of it?

This week, we celebrate the Ascension of our Lord. When Jesus ascended into heaven, he gave specific directions to his Apostles. "Go and make disciples of all nations." They listened! They made disciples, who made disciples, who made disciples, who made disciples, on down the centuries. And here we are! So what's next?

The truth is that we're all commissioned and sent. It happened at our baptism, when we were made sharers in this sacred mission of Jesus.

Who will make the next disciples? I hope it's you!

Rell Sharing the Gospel

It was time for Jesus to go back up to heaven. Before he le#, Jesus asked his

friends to tell the whole world the good news. God wanted all people to

be saved from their sins through Je- sus. If people believed in Jesus, God would forgive them, and they could do

great things to help others. If people refused to believe in Jesus, God would

not forgive them, and they would not be saved. God was with Jesus' friends as they shared the good news. It is your turn now. God wants you to tell the world the good news about Jesus.

God will be with you, too. ©LPi

Prayer

God, help me as I tell people about Jesus.

“...baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit…” —Matthew 28:19

Live the Liturgy

When Jesus was physical- ly with his disciples, he guarded and protected them. One of his greatest desires was that they share his joy completely.

God’s love is the source of all things and their suste- nance. As we conduct the normal routines of our lives it is easy to get caught up in the immedi- acies of this world and lose focus. We become very self and worldly de- pendent, forgetting that God wishes to guard and protect us. The joy the resurrected Christ can offer cannot be found in this world. It takes a bit of faith to realize that God’s will is a constant in our lives and that God desires only the sustenance and goodness of both our bodies and our souls. We need to trust in God’s constant and rejuvenat- ing love. This radical res- urrection trust allows us to experience the joy of God’s presence in all of the good and the bad, positive and negative, life building and life destruc- tive events that we en- counter. God remains where love remains. ©LPi stpatrickwentzville.org org or

Lord God, Almighty Father, creator of mankind and author of peace, as we are ever mindful of the cost paid for the liberty we possess, we ask you to

bless the members of our armed forces. Give them courage, hope, and strength.

May they ever experience your firm support, gentle love, and compassionate healing. Be their power and protector, leading them from darkness to light. To you be all glory, honor, and praise, now and

forever. Amen.
