Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time - August 3, 2014

TODAYS READINGSFirst Reading All you who thirst, come to the water! You without mon-

ey, come to the feast! (Isaiah 55:1-3).Psalm The hand of the Lord feeds us; he answers all our needs (Psalm

145).Second Reading Nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ

(Romans 8:35, 37-39).Gospel All ate until satisfi ed; they collected twelve baskets of what was

left over (Matthew 14:13-21).

GRACE IS EVERYWHERE Grace is everywhere. People of faith act on this belief. As Christians we are called to reach deeply into ourselves and fi nd Gods presence there. We are called to reach outside ourselves and fi nd God there, too. The reality of grace has sustained and nourished people beyond num-bering. The church never tires of telling the story of the loaves and fi shes. It is narrated no less than six times in the four Gospels. We imagine the hesitant apostles reaching into the baskets and fi nding bread, always more bread. We anticipate the ending. The apostles will wear out before the bread runs out. At another time and place, Isaiah also spoke of an abundance, this time of water, sweet honey, and rich milk. Always, always God is a gift-giver, and we the receivers. Our response is doxology, or praise. In the second reading Paul provides the words and attitude. Praise is everywhere.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION Most parishes are now aware of the catechumenate and the journey of new faithful in the RCIA, but this form of sacramental initiation disap-peared from view in the thirteenth century along with many other ancient practices. Life back then was hard, and often too short, and priests were increasingly insistent about the responsibility of parents to baptize children in danger of death. Since everyone in that society was under unimaginable threat from famine, warfare, and plague, the liturgical rites changed quick-ly. Everyone was in danger of death all the time. No longer were babies immersed in fonts, being lowered into the water, although the ritual books never backed down from immersion. Infusion was the new way, a simple pouring of a few drops of water on the childs forehead. The catechumenate collapsed, being reduced to the recitation of the Creed and an Our Father at every baptism. Amazingly, any provision for adult baptism was shelved, so that as late as the 1950s, a person being baptized was presumed to be an infant, unable to answer for him or herself. Questions of creed and commitment were put to the godparents, not to the person being baptized. Even Dorothy Day and Thomas Merton, famous adult converts, remained mute at their baptisms while their sponsors an-swered for them. In hindsight all this appears strikingly odd, yet it was ac-cepted as the way things were. We have good reason to give thanks for the vigorous reforms of the last fi fty years!

LECTURAS DE HOYPrimera lectura A ver ustedes, que andan con sed, ven-

gan a tomar agua! (Isaas 55:1-3).Salmo La mano del Seor nos alimenta; responde a todas

nuestras necesidades (Salmo 145 [144]).Segunda lectura Nada podr apartarnos del amor de

Dios que encontramos en Cristo Jess (Romanos 8:35, 37-39).

Evangelio Todos comieron hasta saciarse (Mateo 14:13-21).

LA GRACIA EST EN TODAS PARTES La gracia est en todas partes. La gente de fe acta segn esa creencia. Los cristianos estamos llamados a bus-car dentro de lo ms profundo de nuestro ser para encontrar la presencia de Dios all. Estamos llamados tambin a buscar afuera de nosotros para encontrarlo all tambin. La realidad de la gracia ha sostenido y alimentado a la gente por encima de todo. La Iglesia nunca se cansa de contar la historia de los panes y los pescados. Se cuenta seis veces en los cuatro evangelios. Nos podemos imaginar a los dudosos Apstoles metiendo la mano en las canastas y en-contrando pan y ms pan. Anticipamos el fi nal. Los Apsto-les se cansaron antes de que se acabara el pan. En otro tiempo y lugar, Isaas tambin habl de una abundancia, esta ve
