“Teach My People to Pray”
On the Feast of Christ the King, November 23rd, you
may remember that a letter from Bishop Ricken was
read at Mass. In it, he introduced a two-year
initiative calling all of us across the Diocese of Green
Bay to enter into a deeper relationship with Jesus in prayer. It’s
part of a larger focus on discipleship that you will continue to hear
more about in the months and years to come.
What’s particularly exciting about this invitation is that
it coincides so well with our emphasis on evangelization
here at St. Gabriel the Archangel. Sharing the Good News
of Jesus MUST be founded on prayer. Without a growing
relationship with God, our efforts will be empty, like words
without music. Here is an excerpt from Bishop Ricken’s
recent Pastor reflection “Teach My People to Pray”.

Priests
My brother priests, I know that all of you are working
very hard in your pastoral ministry, sometimes covering
several parishes sacramentally and administratively. As your
shepherd, I humbly ask you to please remember to take care
of your own soul. It often happens that those closest to a
profession also neglect their own care, e.g. health care
professionals often neglect their own health; psychologists
forget to take care of their own psychological well-being;
teachers resist taking on-going education classes, etc.
Sometimes, the reality is that priests neglect the care of their
own souls, putting the needs of others far ahead of their own.
As our retreat master in June 2014, Cardinal Thomas
Collins of Toronto, explained, the priest is fundamentally a
servant and has the responsibility to tend to three types of
service. The first is the “service of reconciliation.” A good
confessor is first of all a good penitent who goes to
confession frequently. He is also a pontifex – a bridge
builder of reconciliation between and among the faithful in
their families and in their parish communities.
The second service the priest renders is the “service of
the Word of God.” He recites all of the offices of The
Liturgy of the Hours every day for his own people, for the
Diocese and for the Church universal. He is also a man of
the Word of God, both a herald and a doer of the Word of
God. He practices praying with the Bible (called lectio
divina) on a frequent basis and strives to live and breathe
the Word as he ministers to the People of God.
Third, he is a “servant of the Eucharist.” He celebrates the Mass
well and prayerfully. He also spends time in private prayer before
the Eucharist, talking and listening to his best friend, Jesus Christ.
My dear brother priests, I ask you in this two-year period to
reinvigorate your interior life and to make sure that you are
tending the garden of your own soul by putting first things first,
just as I will strive to do. Together, as a community of priests, we
can support and nourish one another to truly be bridge builders of
God’s mercy, love and renewal to the world. Through the power
of the Holy Spirit, as we renew our interior lives together, so too
2 we will renew the lives of our parishes and parishioners.

Debt Reduction Recap
In November of 2010, the parish began a debt reduction
drive with the hope of leaving a debt-free parish to our new
pastor, Fr. Larry. At that time, our total debt that included
the bank line of credit, notes to parishioners and Bishop’s
Appeal arrears amounted to $336,000. As of December 31,
2014, we have no line of credit and our promissory notes
have been paid off. All that remains is $70,000 owing on
the Bishop’s Appeal liability from past years when we
were unable to make our assessment. We have come a long
way, especially considering all the other fundraising we
have done. For the past three years we have gone above
and beyond our Bishop’s Appeal assessment. Any amount
we raise over that assessment will be applied to our liability
from previous years’ shortages. So please give generously
to this appeal which begins again in February. We also ask
that you keep up the donations to the debt reduction drive
that will continue until this liability is paid off. We will get
there! Thank you for your generosity.

Yell to the Youth
News & Events for St. Gabriel Youth Ministry
Often we hear the readings on a given Sunday,
and it might be hard to make connections. There may be a
theme that runs between the Old Testament First Reading,
and the Gospel, for example, but they aren’t always obvious
parallels. Then throw in the Second Reading, which is
usually from one of the letters of St. Paul or another author.
These often follow their own sequence, so that you notice
that it continues a topic from the previous week. It may or
may not “fit” with the First Reading & Gospel.
This weekend, at first glance, would appear to be a
hodge-podge. Moses is talking about God raising up a
prophet to follow in his footsteps. St. Paul is talking about
how it’s easier to dedicate your life to serving God when you
don’t have the commitment to spouse and family. And early
in Mark’s Gospel (chapter 1!), Jesus is already on a mission,
proclaiming the Kingdom of God and driving out evil spirits.
However, if we step back, we can see a few connections.
Moses is talking about a prophet whose job is to “tell them all
that I command him.” In other words, the prophet is speaking
on God’s behalf, giving direction to the people of Israel so that
they may follow the Lord more closely. St. Paul offers
guidance “for your own benefit, not to impose a restraint upon
you, but for the sake of propriety and adherence to the Lord
without distraction.” And Jesus amazes his listeners, not just
with a show of power over an evil spirit, but because “he
taught them as one having authority…”
So we’re called upon to consider how God is guiding us
in lots of big and small ways. How do I submit to the
authority that God has in my life?
Perhaps it is the authority of a parent or teacher or a doctor.
It may be the authority of a coach or music instructor. We
have over us the authority of civil government. And lest we
forget, in the life of the Church, we have the authority of
pastors and bishops who are there for our benefit.
Here’s the thing – part of the paradox of our human
condition is that God doesn’t force our obedience, even though
we are subject to His Laws. It is our choice to enter into a
relationship with Jesus, and in so doing, choose our ultimate
Good – life with God forever. There are consequences to
consistently choosing less than the best of what God has to offer.
Let’s pray today for those in authority, that they may
exercise their power in loving service to the people under
them. May we take as our example Jesus, Who, though He
was Lord of all creation, stooped down to wash the feet of His
disciples. And let’s pray for all who are subject to authority,
that we may be obedient, and put things in the proper
perspective. In this also, may we look to the model of Jesus.
In the ultimate act of obedience, He followed His Father’s plan
of love, all the way to the Cross, for our salvation.

Scout Sunday, February 8 at the 10:00 AM
Mass. If you have a child, son or daughter, who
is a scout in any troop at any level, he/she is
invited to participate in Scout Sunday. All
boy scouts and girl scouts in the parish are welcome. They
simply need to show up in their scout uniforms.
On Scout Sunday, all participating scouts will be part of the
procession and will sit together with their leaders in pews
reserved in the front of church. As in the past, several of
the scouts are welcome to lead the procession of scouts with
the American flag and with the scout standards. After the
homily, Father will ask all the scouts to stand and he will give
them a blessing. Scouts will not be doing the readings or
petitions. At the end of the Mass, the scouts will participate in
the recessional, leading the way out of church.
Why Give to the Bishop’s Appeal?
And the king will say to them in reply,
“Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for
one of these least brothers of mine, you did
for me.” Matthew 25:40
Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal will help in countless
ways. Care ministers are trained to go out and share the
Gospel with the homebound and sick. Children and
families are able to attend lively, interactive education
programs learning the Word of God. A young woman in
an abusive relationship is able, through counseling with
Catholic Charities, to stand on her own feet. Families
seeking to adopt are connected with newborn babies. Your
gift to the Bishop’s Appeal makes happy endings possible.
91% of every dollar raised goes to Diocesan ministries and
services right here in northeastern Wisconsin.
