Saturday of the 13th Week in Ordinary Time


 Genesis 27:1-5, 15-29 ;

Psalm 135:1-6;

Gospel MT 9:14-17


The disciples of John approached Jesus and said, "Why do we and the Pharisees fast much, but your disciples do not fast?"


Jesus answered them, "Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast. 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. People do not put new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise the skins burst, the wine spills out, and the skins are ruined. Rather, they pour new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved."

 

Celebrate the Mass with the Presence of Bridegroom

 

What is the Mass? The mass is where the bridegroom is fully present. It is a drama: it’s not a tragedy because there is a resurrection. In every great drama there is first of all the conception of it strong in the mind of the artist. Second, there are long rehearsals, the choosing of characters and types; third, there is opening night; and forth, there are road companies. The drama of the mass was conceived in the mind of the eternal dramatist, for the lamp was slain from the beginning of the world. Then there were the rehearsals and the types and the choosing of characters: Paschal lamp, the serpent, and the many other instances and prototypes of sacrifice in the Old Testaments. Then came the opening night, the Last Supper, which looked to the cross. And then the Lord sent out his road companies, His priests: “Do this in memory of me”. Same action, same words, same drama, only different characters pronouncing the lines. When, therefore, we begin the Mass we are reaching back to the cross of Calvary and lifting out of its rocks and planting it right down here in our midst. Every time a Mass is offered Calvary is represented somewhere on earth.
