Baptism and the sacred.

 

Throughout the world, different nationalities have different rites of initiation. Through the sacrament of Baptism, we become members of God’s family and share in God’s life. Baptism is the sacrament of new life and is the beginning of a faith journey – Baptism is not just a gesture.

The priest baptises “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”, and in the same way he absolves “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” However, he is not forgiving in his own personal name no more than he is baptising in his own personal name – it is in the power of the Trinity that he acts. One is introduced into the life of the Trinity, sharing the life of God, through Baptism. Grace constitutes God’s life in us.

Jan 19 - St Branwalader (6th century) Cornwall,Dorset, Jersey

branwaderSummary of St Branwalader was a monk, and could have been a bishop, of Celtic, probably Welsh, origin. He is honoured both in Cornwall and Dorset as well as on the island of Jersey in the Channel Islands.

Patrick Duffy explores what is known about him.

Worked with St Samson
Little is historically known about St Branwalader (also called Brelade or Breward). He was a 6th century Celtic monk and possibly a bishop. He may have been of Welsh origin. He worked with St Samson (490-565) in Cornwall and the Channel Islands, and possibly in Brittany. Samson established a monastery at Dol in Brittany, which afterwards became an episcopal see: feast 28th July.

Cornwall
In Cornwall, he is known as St Breward. St Breward's Church is the highest in Cornwall, located on Bodmin Moor, in the village of the same name. There is also a St Breward's Well in Cornwall which is situated close to Camelford. It was visited by sufferers from inflamed eyes and other complaints, who would throw in a pin, or small coin, as an offering to the saint.

Abbey Church of St Mary, St Sansom and St Branwalader, Milton Abbas

Dorset
King Æthelstan of Wessex founded the Benedictine abbey of Milton in Dorset in 933 AD to commemorate the death at sea of his brother Edwin, for which he was said to have been responsible. It was dedicated to St. Mary, St. Sampson, and St. Branwalader. He bestowed many relics, including the arm and bones of St. Sampson, and the arm of St. Branwalader the bishop.

During the dissolution of the monasteries it passed to Sir John Tregonwell, a lawyer who had worked to arrange Henry VIII's divorce from Catherine of Aragon.

In 1953 the grounds were bought by a trust to establish a school, Milton Abbey.

Jersey
Branwalader is remembered in Jersey in the parish name St Brelade (church dating from the 10th or 11th century) in the very south-west of the island.

Exeter Martyrology
The Exeter Martyrology describes Branwalader as a son of a Cornish king, Kenen. His name is found in litanies and his feast was kept at Winchester and Exeter.

A reading from the Gospel according to John        1:29-34
Look, there is the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.

Jesus lamb of God.2Seeing Jesus coming towards him, John said, 'Look, there is the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. This is the one I spoke of when I said: A man is coming after me who ranks before me because he existed before me. I did not know him myself, and yet it was to reveal him to Israel that I came baptising with water.' John also declared, 'I saw the Spirit coming down on him from heaven like a dove and resting on him. I did not know him myself, but he who sent me to baptise with water had said to me, "The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and rest is the one who is going to baptise with the Holy Spirit."

Yes, I have seen and I am the witness that he is the Chosen One of God.'

Dúirt an Tiarna lio,

 “Is tú mo ghiolla Iosrael
trína saothróidh mé glóir dom féin.”
Bhí maise orm i súile an Tiarna,
ba é mo Dhia mo neart.


Agus anois tá an Tiarna tar éis labhairt,
an té a dhealbhaigh mé ón mbroinn i leith i mo ghiolla dó,light-of-the-ntions
le go mbailínn Iacób ar ais chuige,
le go gcruinnínn Iosrael le chéile dó:

“Is fánach an mhaise duit a bheith i do ghiolla agam

chun treibheanna Iacóib amháin a thabhairt chucu féin,
chun ar slánaíodh d’Iosrael a thabhairt ar ais.
Ceapfaidh mé thú i do sholas do na ciníocha,
chun go dté mo shlánú go críocha na cruinne.”

Briathar Dé.

agus d'éist le m'éamh.
Chuir sé amhrán nua i mo bhéal,
amhrán molta dár nDia.                                Freagra

2. Íobairt ná ofráil níor thoil leat,
ach d'oscail tú cluasa dom.
loseadh níor theastaigh uait, ná íobairt in éiric an pheaca.
Ansin dúirt mé: 'Féach, táim ag teacht.'    Freagra

Eisean an té a ndúirt mé faoi: ‘Tá duine ag teacht i mo dhiaidh a bhfuil tosach aige orm, mar bhí sé ann romham.’ Níorbh aithnid dom féin é, ach is chun, go nochtfaí d’Iosrael é a tháinig mé ag baisteadh le huisce.” Agus thug Eoin fianaise: “Chonaic mé,” ar sé, “an Spiorad, mar cholm, ag tuirlingt air ó na flaithis agus ag fanacht air. Níorbh aithnid dom féin é, ach an té a sheol mé ag baisteadh le huisce, dúirt seisean liom:

‘An té ar a bhfeicfidh tú an Spiorad ag tuirlingt agus ag fanacht air, eisean an té a bhaisteann leis an Spiorad Naomh.’
Chonaic mé agus is finné mé gurb é seo Mac Dé.”

Liturgical Readings for: Sunday, 26th January, 2020

-  26th Jan 2020 -


FIRST READING

A reading from the book of the Prophet Isaiah          8:23-9:3
In Galilee of the nations the people have seen a great light.

In days past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in days to come he will confer glory on the Way of the Sea on the far side of Jordan, province of the nations.

DamascusThe people that walked in darkness
has seen a great light;
on those who live in a land of deep shadow
a light has shone.
You have made their gladness greater,
you have made their joy increase;
they rejoice in your presence
as men rejoice at harvest time,
as men are happy when they are dividing the spoils.

For the yoke that was weighing on him,
the bar across his shoulders,
the rod of his oppressor,
these you break as on the day of Midian.

The Word of the Lord 

Responsorial Psalm          Ps 26
Response                               The Lord is my light and my help.

1. The Lord is my light and my help;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
before whom shall I shrink?         Response


2. There is one thing I ask of the Lord,
for this I long,
to live in the house of the Lord,
all the days of my life,
to savour the sweetness of the Lord,
to behold his temple.                     Response


3. I am sure I shall see the Lord's goodness
in the land of the living.
Hope in him, hold firm and take heart.
Hope in the Lord!                          Response


SECOND READING 

A reading from the first letter of St Paul to Corinthians          1:10-13. 17
Make up the difference between you instead of disagreeing among youslves

I appeal to you, brothers, for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ, to make up the differences between you, and instead of disagreeing among yourselves, to be united again in your belief and practice. From what Chloe's people have been telling me, my dear brothers, it is clear that there are serious differences among you. What I mean are all these slogans that you have, like: 'I am for Paul,' 'I am for Apollos,' 'I am for Cephas,' 'I am for Christ'. Has Christ been parcelled out? Was it Paul that was crucified for you? Were you baptised in the name of Paul?

For Christ did not send me to baptise, but to preach the Good News, and not to preach that in the terms of philosophy in which the crucifixion of Christ cannot be expressed.

The Word of the Lord

Gospel Acclamation           Mt 4:23
Alleluia, alleluia!
Jesus proclaimed the Good News of the kingdom,
and cured all kinds of sickness among the people
Alleluia!

or                                                  Jn 1:14
Alleluia, alleluia!
Blessings on the King who comes, in the name of the Lord!
Peace in heaven  and glory in the highest heavens!
Alleluia!


Gospel                             

A reading from the Gospel according to Matthew                4:12-23
Jesus went and settled in Capernaum: in this way the prophecy of Isaiah was fulfilled

Hearing that John had been arrested Jesus went back to Galilee,  and leaving Nazareth he went and settled in Capernaum, a lakeside town on the borders of Zebulun and Naphtali.  In this way the prophecy of Isaiah was to be fulfilled:

'Land of Zebulun! Land of Naphtali!
Way of the sea on the far side of Jordan,
Galilee of the nations!
The people that lived in darkness
has seen a great light;
on those who dwell in the land and shadow of death
a light has dawned.'

From that moment Jesus began his preaching with the message, 'Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is close at hand.'

call by JesusAs he was walking by the Sea of Galilee he saw two brothers, Simon, who was called Peter, and his brother Andrew; they were making a cast in the lake with their net, for they were fishermen. And he said to them, 'Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.' And they left their nets at once and followed him. Going on from there he saw another pair of brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John; they were in their boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. At once, leaving the boat and their father, they followed him.

Going on from there he saw another pair of brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John; they were in their boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. At once leaving the boat and their father, they followed him.

He went round the whole of Galilee teaching in their synagogue proclaiming the Good News of the kingdom and curing all kinds diseases and sickness among the people.

CÉAD LÉACHT

Sliocht as an Leabhar Íseáia, fáidh         8:23-9:3
I nGailíl na gciníocha chonaic an pobal solas mór.

San am atá thart thug sé béim síos do thír Zabúlun agus do thír Naftáilí, ach san amatá ag teacht ardóidh sé bealach na farraige, an taobh thall den Iordáin, Gailíl nagciníocha.

DamascusAn pobal a bhí ag siúl sa dorchadas,
chonaic siad solas mór;
agus ar mhuintir na tíre gruama
tá solas ag lonrú.
Chuir tú go mór lena n-áthas,
mheadaigh tú ar a lúcháir;
tá siad ag déanamh gairdis os do chomhair,
mar a dhéanann in aimsir an fhómhair,
amhail an gairdeas lena roinntear an chreach.

Óir an chuing a bhí anuas orthu,
an choirb ar a nguaillí,
agus slat an aintiarna,
déanann tú smionagar díobh mar a rinne tú lá Midian

Briathar Dé.  

Salm le Freagra         Sm  26
Freagra                          Is é an Tiarna mo sholas is mo shlánú.

1. Is é an Tiarna mo sholas is mo shlánú.:
cé a chuirfidh eagla orm?
Is é an Tiarna dúnáras me bheatha:
cé a chuirfidh ar crith me?                                  Freagra

2. Aon ní amhain a iarraim ar an Tiarna,
eilím é seo:
bheith i mo chónaí i dteach an Tiarna
fad a bheidh mé beo,
chun go mblaisfinn aoibhneas an Tiarna
agus go bhfeicfinn a theampall.                         Freagra

3. Creidim go bhfeicfidh mé maitheas an Tiarna,
i dtír na mbeo.
Fan leis an Tiarna; bí cróga;
bíodh do chroí go tréan is fan leis an Tiarna. Freagra

DARA LÉACHT

Sliocht as céad Litir Naomh Pól chuig na Coirintigh           1:10-13. 17

Impím oraibh, a bhráithre, in ainm ár dTiarna Íosa Críost, sibh go léir a bheith ar aon fhocal agus gan aon siosmaí a bheith eadraibh, ach sibh a bheith dlúite le chéile ar aon aigne agus ar aon intinn. Mar tá sé curtha ar mo shúile dom ag muintir Chlóé, a bhráithre, go mbíonn sibh in achrann le chéile. Is é atá i gceist agam go mbíonn gach duine agaibh á rá: “leanaimse Pól,” nó “leanaimse Apollós,” nó “leanaimse Céafas,” nó “leanaimse Críost.” An amhlaidh atá Críost roinnte ina choda? An é Pól a céasadh ar an gcrois ar bhur son? An in ainm Phóil a baisteadh sibh?

Mar ní ag baisteadh a chuir Críost uaidh mé ach ag fógairt an dea-scéil agus é a dhéanamh gan dul i muinín
eagna urlabhra ar eagla cros Chríost a choilleadh.

Briathar Dé.  

Alleluia Véarsa             Mth 4: 23
Alleluia, alleluia!

agus gach éagruas i measc an phobail.
Alleluia!

SOISCÉAL

Sliocht as Soiscéal naofa de réir Naomh Mhatha           4:12-23
Chuir sé faoi i gCafarnáum chun go gcomhlíonfaí a ndúradh trí Íseáia fáidh.

Nuair a chuala Íosa go raibh Eoin tugtha ar láimh, chuaigh sé i leataobh go dtí an Ghailíl. D’fhág sé Nazarat agus chuir faoi i gCafarnáum cois na farraige, i gcríocha Zabúlun agus Naftáilím chun go gcomhlíonfaí a ndúradh trí Íseáia fáidh:

“Talamh Zabúlun, talamh Naftáilím,
bóthar na farraige, an taobh eile den Iordáin,
Gailíl na gciníocha,
an pobal a bhí ina suí sa dorchadas,
chonaic siad solas mór,
an mhuintir a chónaigh i dtír scáilmhear an bháis,
d’éirigh solas chucu.”

call by JesusÓn am sin amach, thosaigh Íosa ag seanmóir agus ag rá: “Déanaigí aithrí, mar tá ríocht na bhflaitheas in achmaireacht.”

Ag siúl dó cois farraige na Gailíle, chonaic sé beirt dearthár, Síomón ar a dtugtar Peadar agus Aindrias a dheartháir, ag caitheamh eangacha san fharraige, mar iascairí a bhí iontu. Labhair sé leo: “Tagaigí i mo dhiaidh, agus déanfaidh mé iascairí ar dhaoine díbh.” D’fhág siad na líonta láithreach agus lean siad é. Bhuail sé ar aghaidh, agus chonaic sé beirt dearthár eile, Séamas mac Zeibidé agus Eoin a dheartháir: bhí siad sa bhád in éineacht lena n-athair, Zeibidé, ag cóiriú a gcuid líonta; agus ghlaoigh sé iad. D’fhág siad an bád agus a n-athair láithreach agus lean siad é.

Agus ghabh Íosa ar fud na Gailíle go léir, ag teagasc sna sionagóga, ag fógairt
dea-scéil na ríochta, agus ag leigheas gach galar agus gach éagruas i measc an phobail.
