1 St. Mary Catholic Church St. Michael Catholic Church Hagerstown, MD Clear Spring, MD January 7, 2018

2 Dear Parishioners, Merry Christmas and Happy Epiphany of the Lord! You may recall last year hearing the Announcement of Easter and the Moveable Feasts Sung after the Gospel at Mass. The proclamation of the date of Easter and the other moveable feasts on Epiphany dates from a time when calendars were not readily available. It was necessary to make known the date of Easter in advance, since many celebrations of the liturgical year depend on its date. The number of Sundays that follow Epiphany, the date of Ash Wednesday, and the number of Sundays that follow Pentecost are all computed in relation to Easter. Although calendars now give the date of Easter and the other feasts in the liturgical year for many years in advance, the Epiphany proclamation still has value. It is a reminder of the centrality of the resurrection of the Lord in the liturgical year and the importance of the great mysteries of faith which are celebrated each year (from the USCCB website). We will observe this ancient practice of the Church again this year. You will find the text printed below. In addition to this text, please also find those dates, in addition to Sundays, that we are obliged to worship God at Mass. There are only five of these holy days of obligation that are not observed on Sunday. Please mark your calendars now and plan around Mass for each of these feasts. We should think of Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation Masses as the center of our week, month, and year around which all other events are scheduled. Explained very simply, this is on account of the Third Commandment and the Lord s command to us when He gave us His Body and Blood: Do this in memory of me. By placing Mass on these days at the center of our schedules, we help to put God more and more at the center of our lives. This is a great new year s resolution whether we already live by it or are still trying to do so more perfectly. As I have mentioned, I am away from December 29 to January 15 to work on my dissertation. I am so close to being finished, with a bit of dedicated time like this, I hope to be finished by October. Please pray for this intention that, once finished, I may focus even more on the important work God has in mind for us here. You are in my prayers even while I am away. While I am gone, please welcome Father Jon Kightlinger who will be assisting with Mass and Confessions in my absence. Father Jon is a priest of the Archdiocese who has been dedicating his priestly service to helping parishes in need of temporary priestly ministry (like us right now!). Father Jon s presence is a real blessing! May God bless you and keep you in His care, and may the Blessed Mother intercede for you, Father Cibelli

3 Holy Days of Obligation for the year 2018 (those days, in addition to Sundays, we are obliged to worship God at Mass): August 15, Wednesday, The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary November 1, Thursday All Saints Day December 8, Saturday The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary December 25, Tuesday The Nativity of the Lord (Christmas) January 1, 2019, Tuesday Mary, the Holy Mother of God Announcement of Easter and the Moveable Feasts (for the year 2018) Know, dear brethren (brothers and sisters), that, as we have rejoiced at the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ, so by leave of God's mercy we announce to you also the joy of his Resurrection, who is our Savior. On the fourteenth day of February will fall Ash Wednesday, and the beginning of the fast of the most sacred Lenten season. On the first day of April you will celebrate with joy Easter Day, the Paschal feast of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Come join us in prayer and bring your family and friends! Questions? Call Pat Oliver at Rosary Crusades are always on the second Saturday of each month, 10:30-11:30am, at the National Shrine Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. As Blessed Mother Teresa said Everything begins with prayer. Father, What is the significance of the gifts of the Wise Men? The wise men may have known the ancient Hebrew prophecies of the coming Messiah from the time that the Israelites had spent in exile in Babylon. The prophet Daniel held a high position in the court of the Babylonian king and prophesied the coming of the Messiah. So, the wise men were wise enough to bring gifts that signified their knowledge of who Jesus was. A gift is simply that; something we do not have a right to; something that is given to us out of generosity and kindness of someone else. In that respect then, when the Gospel says the Magi opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. They were not really gifts since, as God, everything belongs by right to God. The Magi were only giving to God what was His due. Like the background music in a scary movie, whose ominous tune warns us that danger is just around the corner. The gifts of the wise men sound the first note, that proves this is not fairy tale ending of the Christmas story. As St. Pope Gregory the Great has written, The Magi come bearing gold, incense, and myrrh. Gold is offered in tribute to a king, incense is offered in sacrifice to God, [and] with myrrh bodies of the dead are embalmed. The magi therefore, proclaim also by their mystic gifts, Who it is they adore: with gold they proclaim Him king, with incense that He is God, by myrrh that He is mortal. There are heretics who believe that He is God, but they do not believe that He reigns everywhere. These indeed offer incense, but refuse to offer Him gold. There are others who believe He is a king, but deny He is God. Those offer Him gold, but deny Him incense. And there are others who confess He is both God and King, but deny that He assumed a mortal body. Such as these offer Him gold and incense but refuse the myrrh of His assumed mortality. Ask The Priest is a continuing feature of the Bulletin. If you have a question regarding the Catholic faith, please place your question in the box on the back table.
