See, the days are coming, says the Lord………..
It was Christ who established this new covenant, the new testament in his blood, calling into being, from Jews and Gentiles……….
This messianic people has Christ as its head: Christ who was given up for our sins and rose again for our justification; bearing now the name that is above every name, he reigns in glory in heaven……….
“This messianic people, then, though it does not in fact embrace all mankind and often seems to be a tiny flock, is yet the enduring source of unity, hope and salvation for the whole human race. It is established by Christ as a communion of life, of love and of truth; it is also used by him as an instrument for the redemption of all, and is sent out into the whole world as the light of the world and the salt of the earth.”
(From the dogmatic constitution on the Church of the Second Vatican Council:The Church as sacrament of unity and salvation)
Fr. Scott tells the story as told by the good Carmelites of the Santa Fe:
“Some parishioners were on their way to celebrate morning mass in honor of St. Patrick on his Feast day. Juan was working in his garden as usual and, as they passed, they called to him to join them. “No, no,” he said “I only celebrate the Feast days of Mexican saints.” So on they went leaving Juan to his gardening.
A couple of days later, on the feast of St. Joseph, they made the pilgrimage again. They passed Juan’s home but this time, no Juan. Arriving at the church, who did they behold but Juan devoutly praying before St. Joseph’s statue . “Juan,” they asked, “what’s this? You told us that you only honor Mexican saints and St. Joseph is a Jew?”
Juan smiled broadly, “I know, I know, but he’s married to a good Mexican woman….Our Lady of Guadalupe!”
