My Heart is Like a Steepled Church.

 

My heart is like a steepled church

With bells that are joyfully ringing,

Doors that are open to everyone

And a choir the world can hear singing –

 

Whose rafters resound from the organ’s notes,

Pews that are full to the bursting,

And windows with light shining blissfully on

Souls satisfied of their thirsting.

 

When quiet descends on my happy church,

As the air is filled with sweet prayer,

I think of the peace that now dwells within

Because of the Love that is there.

Sep 16 - Ss Cyprian, bishop, and Cornelius, pope (3rd century martyrs)

St Cyprian and St Cornelius

These two martyrs are mentioned together in the Roman Canon (First Eucharistic Prayer) indicating they had already attained a position of honour in fourth century Rome. The disputes that occurred during their time helped established principles about the unity of the Church, the practice of penance and the validity of the sacraments. Patrick Duffy gives the background.

Dilemma following the Decian persecution
9_16_cornelius_cyprianIn a year 250 there was no pope, because of the Decian persecution. When it became possible to hold an election, Cornelius (image right) was the leading contender. However, a counter candidate emerged called Novatian who was strongly opposed to forgiving the Church members who had apostasised (denied their faith) in the persecution and allowing them back into the Church. Cornelius (image left), however, was for allowing them back and his candidacy was supported by a letter from Cyprian, bishop of Carthage.

cyp1A middle position
Cyprian was born in that city about 210. He trained and practised as a lawyer before his conversion to Christianity in 245. Within two years, he was elected bishop and shortly after he went into hiding because of the Decian persecution. For this he was criticised, but he did manage to continue administering his diocese through letters. A dispute about those who had lapsed during the persecution: some said they should be allowed to come back without any demands being made on them. Cyprian opposed this and insisted they could be re-admitted - provided and after they had completed a period of penance. This middle position was supported by the newly elected Pope Cornelius. Cornelius was sent into exile by the emperor Gallus and he died at Civitavecchia in 253.

The Baptism of heretics
Another sacramental issue arose in 255 and this time Cyprian held a more rigorist position against that of Pope Stephen. The question was whether baptism according to the accepted form was valid if it was administered by a heretic. The new pope Stephen held that provided the accepted form was used - in the name of Christ or in the name of the Trinity - it was valid. Cyprian held it wasn't valid and insisted on re-baptism. He did allow that heretics who had been baptized in the Church, but had temporarily fallen away and wished to return in penitence, need not be re-baptized. Eventually the Church decided in favour of the position held by Pope Stephen.

Sacramental principles
Three principles of Church sacramental theology were established through the disputes that arose following the persecutions at this time. The first was that the Church exercises the power to remit sin, even apostasy: the second was that unworthy members can be accepted back into the Church, provided they do penance; the third is the validity of baptism by heretics.


Death and influence
cyp2Cyprian was imprisoned under the persecution of Valerian in 257 and was exiled for refusing to participate in worshipping the Roman gods. He was put to death on 14th September 258. Since much of his writing helped to clarify issues about the sacraments, Church unity and the role of the bishop, St Cyprian figures and is quoted quite a lot in Vatican II's Constitution on the Church Lumen Gentium.
Liturgical Readings for: Monday, 16th September, 2019
FIRST READING
A reading from the first  letter of St Paul to Timothy        2:1-8
There should be prayers offered for everyone to God, who wants everyone to be saved.

My advice is that, first of all, there should be prayers offered for everyone - petitions, intercessions and thanksgiving - and especially for kings and others in authority, so that we may be able to live religious and reverent lives in peace and quiet. To do this is right, and will please God our saviour: he wants everyone to be saved and reach full knowledge of the truth. For there is only one God, and there is only one mediator between God and mankind, himself a man, Christ Jesus, who sacrificed himself as a ransom for them all. He is the evidence of this, sent at the appointed time, and I have been named a herald and apostle of it and - I am telling the truth and no lie - a teacher of the faith and the truth to the pagans.

In every place, then, I want the men to lift their hands up reverently in prayer, with no anger or argument.

The Word of the Lord

Responsorial Psalm            Ps  27
Response                                Blessed be the Lord, for he has heard my cry.

1. Hear the voice of my pleading
as I call for help,
as I lift up my hands in prayer
to your holy place.                                                Response


2. The Lord is my strength and my shield;
in him my heart trusts.
I was helped, my heart rejoices
and I praise him with my song.                          Response


3. The Lord is the strength of his people,
the stronghold where his anointed find salvation.
Save your people; bless Israel your heritage.
Be their shepherd and carry them for ever.     Response 


Gospel  Acclamation          Ps 118:27: 2
Alleluia, alleluia!
Make me grasp the way of your precepts,
and I will muse on your wonders.
Alleluia!


Or                                             Jn 3:16
Alleluia, alleluia!
God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son;
everyone who believes in him has etemal life.
Alleluia!

GOSPEL
A reading from the Gospel according to Luke       7:1-10
Not even in Israel have I found such faith

j +THE CENTURIONWhen Jesus had come to the end of all he wanted the people to hear, he went into Capernaum. A centurion there had a servant, a favourite of his, who was sick and near death. Having heard about Jesus he sent some Jewish elders to him to ask him to come and heal his servant. When they came to Jesus they pleaded earnestly with him. 'He deserves this of you' they said 'because he is friendly towards our people; in fact, he is the one who built the synagogue.' So Jesus went with them, and was not very far from the house when the centurion sent word to him by some friends:

'Sir,' he said 'do not put yourself to trouble; because I am not worthy to have you under my roof; and for this same reason I did not presume to come to you myself; but give the word and let my servant be cured. For I am under authority myself, and have soldiers under me; and I say to one man: Go, and he goes; to another: Come here, and he comes; to my servant: Do this, and he does it.'

When Jesus heard these words he was astonished at him and, turning round, said to the crowd following him, 'I tell you, not even in Israel have I found faith like this'. And when the messengers got back to the house they found the servant in perfect health.

The Gospel of the Lord.



Gospel Reflection     Monday,     Twenty Fourth Week in Ordinary Time      Luke 7:1-10

In today’s first reading, Paul gives us a very generous vision of God. He declares that God wants everyone to be saved and reach full knowledge of the truth. God desires all of humanity to hear the truth of the Gospel. Paul articulates that Gospel truth in a very succinct way in the reading: ‘There is only one God, and there is only one mediator between God and mankind’, Christ Jesus who sacrificed himself for our sins, who gave himself through his life and especially his death so that we might be reconciled to God. This truth of the Gospel is so rich that no one of us will ever fully exhaust its meaning in this life.

In today’s gospel reading, God’s generous vision for humanity meets with a very generous response from a non-Jew, a pagan centurion. This pagan had a deep appreciation of the Jewish faith. According to the gospel reading, he paid for the building of the synagogue in Capernaum, the foundations of which can still be seen today. He clearly had a tremendous faith in one particular Jew, Jesus from Nazareth. He trusted Jesus to heal his servant at a distance by means of his word. He did not consider himself worthy that someone as close to God as Jesus should enter his pagan home. Jesus was deeply impressed by his trusting faith and his humility. ‘Not even in Israel have I found faith like this’. Indeed, a version of this centurion’s words has made its way into the text of our Mass. At every Mass, we are invited to make the words of this centurion our own, and to make our own the trusting faith and humility that lie behind them. If we can do that, then God’s generous vision for our lives will begin to come to pass.

CÉAD LÉACHT
Sliocht as céad Litir Naomh Pól chuig Timóteas            2:1-8
Déanfaí urnaithe agus achainíocha agus iarratais agus altú ar son an uile dhuine.

I
mpím ort sa chéad áit go ndéanfaí urnaithe agus achainíocha agus iarratais agus altú ar son an uile dhuine, agus go háirithe ar son ríthe agus an lucht ceannais uile, le súil go bhféadfaimis ár saol a thabhairt go diaganta cráifeach faoi shuaimhneas agus faoi shíocháin. Is maith agus is taitneamhach sin le Dia ár slánaitheoir. Is áil leis go slánófaí an uile dhuine agus go gcuirfidís eolas ar an bhfírinne. Mar níl annach aon Dia amháin, agus níl ann ach an t-aon idirghabhálaí amháin idir Dia agus an cine daonna, mar atá an duine Críost Íosa a thug suas é féin in éiric orthu uile; sin í an fhianaise a tugadh ina mhithidí féin; ní bréag atáim a rá ach an fhírinne lom – ceapadh mise i mo bholscaire agus i m’aspal aige chun an creideamh agus an fhírinne a mhúineadh do na gintlithe.

Ba mhaith liom, dá bhrí sin, go mbeadh na fir ag guí gach uile áit agus a lámha tógtha acu go hómósach, gan fearg ná aighneas.

Briathar Dé.

Sliocht as Soiscéal naofa de réir Naomh Lúcás          7:1-10
Ní bhfuair mé in Iosrael féin creideamh chomh láidir leis seo.


j +THE CENTURIONSan am sin nuair a bhí a bhriathra uile críochnaithe aige i gcomhchlos don phobal, chuaigh sé isteach i gCafarnáum. Bhí taoiseach céad a raibh seirbhíseach leis tinn agus le hucht báis, agus b’ionúin leis é. Nuair a chuala sé trácht ar Íosa, chuir sé chuige seanóirí de na Giúdaigh á iarraidh air teacht agus a sheirbhíseach a shlanú. Ar theacht i láthair Íosa dóibh sin, bhí siad ag achainí air go díocasach, á rá: “Is maith an díol air go dtabharfá an aisce seo dó; óir tá grá aige dár náisiún agus is é a thóg an tsionagóg dúinn.” Agus d’imigh Íosa leo. Ní raibh sé i bhfad ón teach nuair a chuir an taoiseach céad cairde chuige á rá leis: “A Thiarna, ná cuir as duit féin, óir ní fiú mé go dtiocfá isteach faoi dhíon mo thí: sin é an fáth nár mheas mé gurbh fhiú mé dul chugat; ach abair an focal agus bíodh mo ghiolla leigheasta. Óir is duine mé féin atá i mo ghearroifigeach de réir ranga, agus tá saighdiúirí agam fúm, agus deirim leis seo: ‘Imigh!’ agus imíonn, agus leis seo eile: ‘Tar!’ agus tagann, agus le mo sheirbhíseach: ‘Déan seo!’ agus déanann.” Nuair a chuala Íosa an méid sin, rinne sé ionadh den duine, agus, ag iompú chun an tslua a bhí á leanuint, dúirt: “Deirim libh, ní bhfuair mé in Iosrael féin creideamh chomh láidir leis seo.” Agus ar dhul ar ais chun an tí dóibh, fuair na teachtairí an seirbhíseach slán.

FIRST READING 

A reading from the Book of the prophet  Amos        8:4-7
Against those who 'buy up the poor for money.

Listen to this, you who trample on the needy
and try to suppress the poor people of the country,
you who say, 'When will New Moon be over
so that we can sell our corn,
and sabbath, so that we can market our wheat?
Then by lowering the bushel, raising the shekel,
by swindling and tampering with the scales,
we can buy up the poor for money,
and the needy for a pair of sandals,
and get a price even for the sweepings of the wheat.'
The Lord swears it by the pride of Jacob,
'Never will I forget a single thing you have done'

The Word of the Lord

Responsorial Psalm            Ps 112

2. High above all nations is the Lord,
above the heavens his glory.
Who is like the Lord, our God,
who has risen on high to his throne
yet stoops from the heights to look down,
to look down upon heaven and earth?   Response

3. From the dust he lifts up the lowly,
from the dungheap he raises the poor
to set him in the company of princes,
yes, with the princes of his people.         Response

GOSPEL                               

A reading from the Gospel according to Luke            16:1-13
You cannot be the slave both of God and of money.

Unjust stewartJesus said to his disciples, 'There was a rich man and he had a steward denounced to him for being wasteful with his property. He called for the man and said, "What is this I hear about you? Draw me up an account of your stewardship because you are not to be my steward any longer." Then the steward said to himself, "Now that my master is taking the stewardship from me, what am I to do? Dig? I am not strong enough. Go begging? I should be too ashamed. Ah, I know what I will do to make sure that when I am dismissed from office there will be some to welcome me into their homes."

Then he called his master's debtors one by one. To the first he said, "How much do you owe my master?" "One hundred measures of oil" was the reply. The steward said, "Here, take your bond; sit down straight away and write fifty". To another he said, "And you, sir, how much do you owe?" "One hundred measures of wheat" was the reply. The steward said, "Here, take your bond and write eighty".

'The master praised the dishonest steward for his astuteness. For the children of this world are more astute in dealing with their own kind than are the children of light.'

'And so I tell you this: use money, tainted as it is, to win you friends, and thus make sure that when it fails you, they will welcome you into the tents of eternity. The man who can be trusted in little things can be trusted in great; the man who is dishonest in little things will be dishonest in great. If then you cannot be trusted with money, that tainted thing, who will trust you with genuine riches? And if you cannot be trusted with what is not yours, who will give you what is your very own?

'No servant can be the slave of two masters: he will either hate the first and love the second, or treat the first with respect and the second with scorn. You cannot be the slave both of God and of money.'

SOISCÉAL    

Sliocht as Soiscéal naofa de réir Naomh Lúcás        16:1-13
Ní féidir libh Dia a riaradh agus an t-airgead.

Unjust stewartDúirt sé lena dheisceabail : “Bhí fear saibhir ann a raibh maor aige, agus gearánadh é seo leis go raibh sé ag scaipeadh a mhaoine. Chuir sé fios air agus dúirt leis: ‘Cad é seo a chluinim mar gheall ort? Tabhair cuntas uait i do mhaoirseacht, óir ní féidir thú a bheith i do mhaor feasta.’ Ansin dúirt an maor ina aigne: ‘Cad a dhéanfaidh mé, óir tá mo mháistir ag baint na maoirseachta díom? Níl neart ionam chun rómhair, ba nár liom dul le déirc. Tá a fhios agam cad a dhéanfaidh mé, ionas, nuair a bheidh mé briste as an maoirseacht, go nglacfaidh siad isteach ina dtithe mé.’

Ghlaoigh sé chuige gach aon duine dá raibh i bhfiacha ag a mháistir, agus dúirt leis an gcéad duine: ‘Cé mhéad atá ag mo mháistir ort?’ Dúirt seisean: ‘Tá céad bairille ola.’ Dúirt sé leis: ‘Tóg do bhille, suigh síos, agus scríobh go tapa caoga.’ Ansin dúirt sé le duine eile: ‘Cé mhéad atá amuigh ortsa?’ Dúirt seisean: ‘Tá céad ceathrú arbhair.’ Dúirt sé leis: ‘Tóg do bhille agus scríobh ochtó.’

Agus mhol an máistir an maor mímhacánta mar go ndearna sé go géarchúiseach é; óir bíonn clann an tsaoil seo níos géarchúisí lena leithéidí féin ná clann an tsolais. Agus deirim féin libh, déanaigí cairde daoibh féin leis an airgead mímhacánta, ionas, nuair a chlisfidh sé, go nglacfaidh siad isteach sibh sna bothanna síoraí. An té a bhíonn iontaofa faoin mbeagán, bíonn sé iontaofa faoin mórán freisin; agus an té a bhíonn mímhacánta faoin mbeagán, bíonn sé mímhacánta faoin mórán freisin. Dá bhrí sin, mura raibh sibh iontaofa faoin airgead mímhacánta, cé a thaobhóidh libh an saibhreas fírinneach? Agus mura raibh sibh iontaofa faoin rud a bhí ar iasacht agaibh, cé thabharfaidh daoibh an rud is libh de sheilbh dhílis?

Ní féidir le sclábha ar bith dhá mháistir a riaradh, óir beidh fuath aige do dhuine acu agus grá aige don duine eile, nó beidh sé ag déanamh dúthrachta do dhuine acu agus ag déanamh neamhshuim den duine eile. Ní féidir libh Dia a riaradh agus an t-airgead.”
