Aloha and mahalo from Fr. Chuck

What a blessing for me to be with you good people of St. Augustine Parish! Celebrating Mass with you on Sundays and weekdays is a memory that I will treasure. Your presence, your devotion, your prayerfulness, your joy and laughter moved me deeply and taught me important values of our faith journey. I first celebrated Mass here at St. Augustine in June 1972. I thought that would be the only time I would be here. Since then, I have preached parish missions and given talks in many parishes on the five main islands. Maybe this was my last time in Hawaii, and maybe not. Let’s see what the Lord’s plans might be.

I hope you can continue the practice of Lectio Divina of the Scriptures. Remember the three steps (some say four): 1) Read one sentence or one phrase in the Bible. Read slowly and aloud. Then read the same Word of God again. Listen to a word that touches your heart, that invites you, strengthens you, comforts you. Read that sentence again and again and then begin the second action of Lectio Divina: 2) Ponder and Reflect on those words of Scripture. How do these words speak to me and challenge me? What is God asking me to change or do in my life? What is the blessing for me from this Word of God? Then the last step: 3) Pray to God, converse with God about the reading. Thank and praise God for the Good News that the Word is for you. Adore God, the Holy One! Ask for God’s blessing to live what the Word revealed to you,. And then rest in the Word, in the Lord’s presence.

 

Several of you have asked me, “what can I say to Jesus after communion?” When I was in 2nd grade, Sr. Silvia prepared us for First Holy Communion and suggested that after communion we talk to the Lord using the letters of the word ALTAR. To this day I still use this guide for my quiet time with Jesus after I receive Communion.

A   Jesus, I Adore you….

L    Jesus I Love you…

T    Jesus I Thank you…

A    Jesus I Ask for your help and blessings for me…

R    Jesus I Remember others to you, please bless…

 

Hope to see you again, sooner than later! Aloha! May the Lord give you Peace!
