REFLECTING ON THE WORD

Call to mind—or "Google", if you have access to the Internet—the famous ceiling painting of creation by Michelangelo in the Vatican's Sistine Chapel. God the Creator's right hand is extended to touch the fingers of the first human creature, Adam. Often forgotten or overlooked are the other figures there. Besides a dozen infant angels, you can find a beautiful woman in the crook of the Creator's left arm. That is Wisdom, who speaks to us in our first reading today.

Proverbs tells us that at the dawn of creation, when all was being marked out, made firm, and fixed fast, Wisdom was in on the act. When the Creator set the limits of the sea and the borders of the sky and the foundation of the firmament, she was there, beside God as God's craftsperson, delighting God, playing before God all the while, playing on the surface of the earth (see Proverbs 8:30-31). Then those wonderful words: "and I found delight in the human race" (8:31).

The Creator loved the world and all of creation from the beginning, so much that in the fullness of time God's only Son was sent by God to redeem us, and then the Holy Spirit was sent to swell within us. Into the life of this Trinity we were baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Today's feast calls us to joy because our living God continues to lead us to the truth of who God is, and to pour the love that is the very life of the Trinity into our own hearts, enabling us to love as God loves.

MESSAGE FROM FR. KEN

I will be away from the parish this week (May 24 – 29). I will be on vacation for R&R. You will notice that we have published weekday mass times for our neighboring parishes.

Also, believe it or not, in six weeks (July 7) I will celebrate that I have completed two years as your pastor!! I feel very much at home here and am grateful that Bishop Zubik appointed me as pastor. Thank you for a great two years and for your commitment to the parish community and your words of support to me. I am most grateful and graced.

COME AND SEE

Are you curious about the Catholic Church? Have you been attending Mass with your spouse and want to investigate taking the next step? Do you want to look into the possibility of living as a Catholic? Plan to attend an information session on Wednesday evening, June 2 at 7:30 in Marsico Library in the Ministry Center.

RCIA PROFILE: Lauren Gagliardino

Lauren Gagliardino (with tongue in cheek) describes her profession as "domestic goddess." That is, she is a homemaker who takes care of her children Will (age 2) and Vivian (1). She is married to William Gagliardino, and the family lives in Fox Chapel. Lauren was born and grew up in Pittsburgh, and was baptized at St. Scholastica. She did not receive religious training as a child, though, and did not receive any other sacraments. She lived in South Carolina for a time as an adult, and attended the Episcopal Church there. On moving back to Pittsburgh, she met Bill and they eventually married. It was his Catholic faith, Lauren says, that inspired her to return to Catholic practice and raise their children in the faith. She credits her experience in the RCIA with helping her to "fine tune my ideas of God, understand the mechanics of the Church, and feel comfortable in a new community." One highlight of her experience was "making it through" the Sacrament of Reconciliation, but her most vivid memory is of the Easter Vigil, where she was confirmed and received Eucharist for the first time. She recalls being welcomed into the community "with a hug from Fr. Ken, no less!" surrounded by the RCIA team, her family and friends and the entire parish community. She says: "I experienced an overwhelming sense of belonging." The RCIA Team can testify to how Lauren threw herself into the process with great enthusiasm (and sometimes trepidation—see the aforementioned sacrament of Reconciliation!) Her vibrant presence enriched the RCIA this year for all who participated in it. Asked what she would tell someone who is considering entering the Church through the RCIA, Lauren says: "It is well worth the journey. Doors will open for you when it is least expected." Congratulations to Lauren, and welcome to our parish community!

REFLECTING ON THE WORD

             The late Paul Harvey was famous for his stories on the radio.  He would tell only part of a story, then announce that, after the commercials, he would be back with "the rest of the story".  Then he would come back with a  surprising or satisfying wrap-up.  The word of God reminds us that, no matter what has already happened in our lives or what will happen in future days, God will provide us "the rest of the story".

John does not have Jesus praying in the garden of Gethsemane but at the Last Supper.  Jesus prays to the Father for his disciples and for all who will hear their words about him.  He prays that all may be one.  The ending that God has planned for all who believe in Jesus is that we enter into unity with Jesus and the Father and the Holy Spirit.

Today we also witness the end of the story of one of the first preachers of the gospel, Stephen the deacon.  As he was being stoned, he prayed that the Lord Jesus receive his spirit and that those stoning him be forgiven.  The end of his story on this earth echoes the final words of Jesus on the cross in Luke's Gospel.

Finally, the author of Revelation holds up an image of Jesus as the beginning and the end of the human story.  He will return at the end of time and bring a recompense that he "will give to each according to [our] deeds" (Revelation 22:12).  At the end, then, is God's plan for unity, forgiveness, and glory.  And that's the rest of the story.
