07-05-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

July 5, 2014
Jesus said, “No one patches an old cloak with a piece of unshrunken cloth, for its fullness pulls away from the cloak and the tear gets worse.”  Mt 9:14-17

patchMaybe this is done all over the country, or all over the world, but every year our Bishop reassigns the priests of our fairly large diocese to different parishes and missions.  That means that every year or two we have different associate pastors and occasionally transitional deacons who stay a year and then leave.  Being a university town, we also get priests from foreign countries who take a journalism class at the University and stay for a semester at our parish.

It all makes us pretty resilient with customs, accents, preaching styles, and the diverse personalities of priests.  Some we truly love, and some we have the blessed hope of knowing that it’ll only be a year or two before change happens again.  You see, we are the proverbial “old cloak.”  We’ve seen the “tears” both as rips and watery sadnesses.  We’ve seen the true beauty of Church, in it’s members and in it’s leaders, and how it’s all centered on Jesus.  He is the Rock upon which our Church stands.  And we are the “shrunken cloth” ready to bind with the old and bend with the new, because He IS in our hearts and in our souls.

And we belong to Him!
