LOVING STONES Saint Stephen was one of the first deacons of the Church. He was also the first martyr (Acts 2). Today the word “martyr” makes us think of someone who died for their faith or, more colloquially, someone who suffers needlessly for others. In Greek, the word martyr simply means a witness. Saint Stephen cannot deny his testimony about Jesus Christ. For this he will be executed by stoning. As he awaits the bludgeoning by stones he sees a vision of the Lord. He is filled with the Holy Spirit and hands his spirit over to God. He prays the Lord to forgive his executioners. Everyone who is baptized in Christ is called to be a witness. Each of us is called to a martyrdom wherein we seek the glory of God above all else. We are called to the difficult task of ongoing reconciliation. A faith community is called together as a house of martyrs. Each of us is a living stone built together as one. We are anchored upon our cornerstone Jesus Christ. Each of us is needed to keep the spiritual house on a good foundation. We keep the foundation strong by being solid stones. We become solid stones by asking Jesus to transform us from people who throw stones into living stones grounded in the foundation of Christ’s love. We become an effective and multiplying spiritual house by gathering as often as possible for prayer and worship. We come to this altar not for pardon only but also to be rejuvenated for our mission in the world.

PLEASE DON'T CALL ME THE MINISTER Everyone who has received the Sacrament of Holy Baptism and consequently the Sacrament of Confirmation is a minister of the Church. I cringe when someone refers to me as “the” or “a” minister. The ordained are a specific type of Christian minister. Bishops are the apostle, chief priest and pastor of the diocese. Deacons connect the world to the Church and the Church to the world. Priests assist the bishop in overseeing and pastoral work. All three orders share in proclaiming the Gospel and administering the sacraments. The Laity are the heart and lungs of the body of Christ. Without the laity there is no Church. Lay Ministers are ambassadors of Christ in the community and according to the gifts given them they carry on Christ’s work of reconciliation in the world. Lay Ministers are called to take their place in the life, worship, and governance of the Church. All Christians through Baptism have vows to fulfill. They are summed up in the Catechism, “the duty of all Christians is to come together week by week for corporate worship; and to work, pray, and give for the spread of the kingdom of God.” When any minister ignores their vows the whole Body is weakened. When the ordained do not follow their vows and the laity remains unaware of their own the vital organs begin to shut down. There may be a visible body of people there, but it is not alive.
