You may know the name of P.D. James, a British
murder mystery author who died in late November of
this past year. I love her novels, both for their plots
and for James’ wonderful command of the English
language. Many people, of course, enjoy a good mystery, whether it is presented in writing or on a screen.
As the story begins, we begin to wonder how it is going to work itself out, and indeed often feel an increasingly intense “need to know” as the story develops.
One important criterion of this kind of story-telling is
that the conclusion cannot come completely out of nowhere. Even with false leads, the mystery’s conclusion is satisfying only if we have been given hints
along the way. Another criterion of good writing is
that once the mystery has been revealed, the whole
plot ought to make sense.

God, it seems, has been luring us all along with his
own mystery. Today’s reading from the Letter to the
Ephesians is just one of many times when St. Paul
speaks of God’s mystery, a mystery, which contrary to
expectation, reveals that non-Jews and Jews alike belong to the same body and are co-heirs and partners in
Christ Jesus.

Of course, like any good mystery, hints were laid
from the beginning. For example, in the book of Genesis, we learn that all the families will be blessed
through Abraham. Isaiah the prophet - who provides
us with today’s 2nd reading - often declares that God’s
salvation reaches to the ends of the earth. While the
glory and light for the world are centered on Israel,
that light draws peoples from all the nations.
And that brings us to the Magi whose story is told
in today’s Gospel. Their journey to the newborn King
of the Jews, their worship of him and their gifts for
him manifest that God’s universal salvation has come.
While God’s desire that all peoples come to know him
and be saved seems obvious to us, really integrating
that truth into our hearts can be very challenging. We
may believe that everyone is created in God’s image
and therefore cherished by God, but we still find ourselves putting others “on the margin,” outside the circle of those whom we love. A great gift, a great
epiphany, is to know the glory of God’s love revealed
in everyone we meet. It is truly a profound mystery.

AGAIN, THANK YOU!
Thank you to all those who exerted special efforts to
prepare our church for Advent and for Christmas, as
well as to those who worked hard to prepare liturgies
and beautiful experiences of music for these sacred
seasons. Also, the boards, staff, students and guests
served by the Good Shepherd School and the Harry
Tompson Center have asked that a very special thankyou be extended to all those who participated in the
Giving Tree. Thank you for being such a blessing to
others this Christmas Season!
LITURGICAL MINISTERS
Emails have gone out to current liturgical ministers
with the schedule of service for the next three

A simple lunch is provided beforehand at 12:15.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Also on Tuesday afternoon, the 6th, beginning at 1:30
p.m., we will take down our Christmas decorations
and store them away for another year. Many hands
make for light labor… help is much appreciated.

The dedicated folks of the Altar Society who help with
the cleaning of the church, particularly the sanctuary,
meet from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on the 2nd and 4th

OUR NEW ORLEANS ARCHDIOCESAN FAMILY PRAYER
We come to you, Father, with Mary our Mother, and ask you to help us
in the battle of today against violence, murder and racism.
We implore you to give us your wisdom
that we may build a community founded on the values of Jesus,
which gives respect to the life and dignity of all people.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help us.
Mother Henriette Delille, pray for us that we may be a holy family.
