Seventeenth Sunday After Pentecost - September 16, 2018

In the Epistle (Ephesians 4, 1-6) for the Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost, the foundation of fraternal charity is formed by the bonds uniting us to God in Christ; the creator of these bonds and the living source of charity is the Holy Spirit. In the Gospel for this Sunday (Matthew 22, 34-46) after Our Lord’s teaching on the great commandment there follows a solemn assertion of the divinity of Christ. By His human origin He is a descendant of David, but by His divine nature He is far greater than David himself ever foresaw.   (St. Andrew Missal)

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT -Tonsure and the Four Minor Orders – The path to the priesthood is marked by various steps which associate the candidate ever more intimately with Jesus Christ. The first call of Holy Mother the Church through the bishop which separates a man from the secular world and brings him into the ecclesiastical realm inside the sanctuary is known as tonsure. This ceremony of tonsure takes place after years of preparation and training whereby a vocation is protected, nurtured, tested and authenticated. By the five clippings of the hair in the form of a Cross the man renounces all the vanity that the world offers him and instead places all his confidence in God. At tonsure the seminarian prays the words of the psalm: Dominus pars haereditatis meae, et calicis mei: tu es, qui restitues haereditatem meam mihi. The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and my lot: You are the one who will restore my inheritance to me(Ps. 15:5). At this moment the man becomes a cleric of the Church and no longer pursues any worldly attachments but looks to Jesus Christ exclusively as His Model and Provider. It is a beautiful ceremony rich in material for meditation not only for clerics but also for the faithful so they can appreciate better the divine calling of the priesthood.

We are happy to announce that last month one of our brothers who had completed the years of preparation was tonsured. He also received the Minor Orders of Porter, Lector, Exorcist and Acolyte from one of the bishops who supports us and the traditional Latin Mass and authentic Catholic doctrine and morality. Please remember this bishop and our seminarian in your prayers.
