TRANSCRIPT

Nicene Creed I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Penitential Act Gloria — see sidebar LITURGY OF THE WORD Reading I: Wisdom 2.12, 17-20 Response: Psalm 54

Parish Life Weekly Schedule Not a soul has mentioned it to me, so maybe you haven’t noticed. Then again, as a matter of church décor it’s a rather small

matter, but we changed out the icon on the left side of the sanctuary at St. Michael’s. Right after August 15, the Feast of the Assumption of Mary, the “Our Lady of Kazan” was replaced with an image of “Christ Blessing the Children.” The icon of Mary and Child was a reproduction based on a centuries-old original. Jesus and the Children doesn’t have a long artistic pedigree. It’s a modern interpretation using many of iconography’s traditional rules. So, for example, in the background are two buildings, the one on the left representing a church (see the side aisles) and the one on the right a house. Jesus is clothed in the same colors we saw with Our Lady of Kazan: blue representing his heavenly nature (think, sky) and red for his human nature (think, blood). These are Jesus’ standard colors in Eastern art. The scene (see Mark 10:13-16) represents Jesus with five children and three adults. The colors they wear tell us nothing about them at all (other than that kids in icons wear wild tones). I did notice that the adult handlers in the piece are all women. Hmm. That would have been the case in Jesus’ day, of course, but coming as it does from the Eastern Mediterranean, the rules of iconographic social scenes are still a bit on the conservative side. We chose it for late August and September for the start of school and parish faith formation. Another image will replace it in October. And there is something new at Resurrection Church as well … but outside. It’s been eighteen months, but the McClellan Street door is now open … all the time. Initially we kept it closed under the first strictest COVID protocols to nudge all to enter by way of the Francis Hall for the sake of seating control. Even when the County Health Department’s rules lightened up in May we still had to keep the door closed, as over the winter we had broken open the sidewalk on the church’s south side to upgrade the water runoff system as required by the city. As part of that project we poured a new ramp for handicap access, but then had to wait (and wait) for the handrails to arrive. It was something of a build-it-yourself kit (and even now not all the pieces have reached us), but we thought you have been waiting long enough, and so we’ve opened the route with just one and a half rails in place. Of course, for those who prefer them, there are still steps to be used. But the bigger news at CR this week is the return of the pre-COVID Lord’s Day Mass schedule: Saturday evening at 5:30 pm and Sunday morning at 8:30 am!! The 5:30 evening liturgy will be the one where, for the sake of those who seek a little more space, masking, social distancing, and limited music will continue. With the Sunday morning Mass back at 8:30, the Sacrament of Reconciliation time at 7:30 am will reappear as well. Small steps. Hope you see them as good news. Msgr. Mark Pierce

Next Sunday Reflection Material 3

Readings for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time September 26

Numbers 11:25-29; James 5:1-6; Mark 9:38-48 At first hearing, today’s Gospel sounds like a collection of disparate thoughts. There is, however, a unifying theme: acting and believing in the name of Jesus. “No one who performs a mighty deed in my name.” “Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to (literally, because you are in the name of) Christ.” What does it mean to be, to act, to believe in the name of Je-sus? We know from our own life experience that a “name” signifies a person and all he or she is to us. If we Chris-tians were truly mindful of being “in the name of Jesus” every thought and action would flow from his presence and power. According to today’s scriptures, what actions characterize one who is “for” God? How would our lives be different if we really acted on the belief that Christ lives in me?

COVID procedures at Sunday Masses at the

Eastside Parishes last updated September 15, 2021 Here’s a rundown of our current procedures at worship:

· With the installation of the rail-ing along the ramp on the McClellan Street entrance at the Church of the Resurrection, all the doors to both churches are now open.

· For the unvaccinated, the continued wearing of face coverings and social distancing remain strongly recom-mended; with the delta variant gaining steam, even those who have been vaccinated are encouraged to mask at Mass and at other parish events.

· Most of each church will be available for seating, with two exceptions: first, the pews at the very front and the very back of each section will continue to have an empty “buffer” row (behind or ahead of it) for those who would welcome more space between them and others. The 5:30pm Mass at Resurrection will require 6’ distancing and the wearing of masks by all.

· Taking the offering “passively” at the entrances of the church will continue for now.

· Sanitizing of “high touch” areas (pew tops, door han-dles, etc.) will continue per CDC recommendations.

Stay tuned. Things change.

Friday Morning Men’s Group to begin Friday, September 24, at 6:30 am at

Resurrection’s Francis Hall Before COVID our 6:30-7:45 am twice-a-month group for

discussion, prayer, and a light breakfast was doing well. But after an 18-month hiatus, Fr. Mark is calling us back

beginning on September 24 in Francis Hall at Resurrection. The launch-pad for our meetings will be a book:

The Unbroken Thread: Discovering the Wisdom of Tradition in an Age of Chaos by Sohrab Ahmari. There is still time to join.

A simple, light breakfast will be served.

Catholicism 101 starts this week! On Tuesday nights at 7:00 pm, starting September 21, at

St. Michael’s Fr. Mark will again lead whomever he can gather into a general adult study of faith he calls

Catholicism 101. Our intention is to meet “live” for about a dozen times before Christmas and then to pick up again in

late January. We’ll tackle topics big and small, and there will be plenty of time for questions. These sessions would

be especially helpful for those who somehow missed Confirmation, who were raised in other Church traditions

and want to understand the Catholic way, or who suspect good things might come from blowing the cobwebs off

what they learned as kids. We will make this fun.

To get on the list for either of these groups, contact Fr. Mark at 715-842-4283 or [email protected].

Please remember all of our homebound and hospitalized parishioners from Resurrection and St. Michael Parishes in your prayers this week.

Opportunities for Sunday Worship, a Daily Mes-sage, and Formation on the Mass on our Website Believe it or not, this bulletin isn’t everything we have to tell you at the Eastside Parishes. For those with internet access, there are daily and weekly messages you can access through our website: eastsideparishes.org. For example, there we livestream the 8:30 am Sunday Mass (and where it can be reviewed through the next week). It’s where you also can find an audio-only “daily reflection on the Scriptures” posted by Fr. Mark or Fr. Joe. And currently we have three 15 minute messages from Fr. Mark about the importance of Lord’s Day worship for your consideration, as well as some much briefer words of encouragement on the importance of Sunday Mass by some of our members. Give it a look!

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil... and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and forever.
