gathering of priests religious and lay people called by the bishop to offer assis tance with the planning for the future of the local church Archbishop Patrick Flores has called this synod to provide an opportunity for the people of the Archdiocese of San Antonio to come together and reflect on their lives as Catholic Christians Through the synod process which willlast two to three years the people of the Ibcal church will be able to name the strengths needs and challenges of the archdiocese to help it become a more vibrant community as it moves into the 21st century The San Antonio Archdiocesan Synod began last November and is the first in this archdiocese since 1930 The Archdiocesan Synod has four phases an edu cational phase a listening phase a phase for gath ering information and a recommendation phase The archdiocese just completed the first phase which involved educating the people of the church about the synod process Now it will enter the listening phase which brings people together within the Catholic parishes so that they may express their ideas about the needs and Concerns of the Catholic Church in the archdiocese As part of this listening phase parishes throughout the Archdiocese of San Antonio will host listening sessions the weeks of Oct 22 Nov 5 and Nov 12 The topic for discussion Oct 22 will be Evange for Nov 5 The and for Nov 12 Prayer and Because parishes can host the listening sessions on various days and at various times within those weeks individuals interested in attending should the parish in their area for specific times Through these listening sessions and the rest of the synod process that follows we will name the impor ant issues that face our focal church and see how we can address them and develop an action plan for the said Sister Janet Marie Abbacehi SSND synod coordinator LEARNING TO SEE IN im The last night that Jesus spent with His disciples was spent in a dimly lit room loaned to them by a sympathetic follower who lived in Jerusalem In that room the disciples participated in the ancient rituals of Passover It was nothing new in fact it was wholly familiar But Jesus as He was known to do changed all the rules that evening He rewrote the Passover to institute a part of the new order and used the simple unleavened bread and coarse wine of the common peo ple to illustrate it all What was left were instructions for us to Do this in remem brance of And since that night Christians have cel ebrated the broken bread and wine of the sacrificial death of Jesus Symbols that car ry with them the Blessed Hope with great simplicity Weve tried to spiff up Holy Commu nion over the years Ornate chalices lots of lace tablecloths and the like All well mean ing but brutally missing the point Because the message that was preached that night could never be softened The bright lights and orderliness of a sanctuary is a strange place to play out the passion of the death of Jesus isnt it But that is what we do And last Wednes day evening our church participated in the RK cup and broken bread of the Lords Table Nothing new Nothing revolutionary Noth ing particularly miraculous Yet in our sim ple sharing there was a deepened sense of Gods purpose in the struggles and trials that we face A picture developed in my heart that I would like to share with you Have you ever con sidered how many oth er meals might have seemed more appropri ate to celebrate than this one What about the miracle of the loaves and fishes It would Dennis Gallaher seem more appropriate to celebrate Jesus miracles instead of the blight of the cross Or how about the breakfast He served the eleven on the beach after His resurrec tion By that time the victory over death had taken place That would seem a much better event to rejoice in dont you think There is one other meal recorded You remember It was the first time Jesus appeared to the disciples after He rose from the dead He simply appeared to them as Bible translator to visit Missionary Kenny Gammon will share the opportuni ties available in the field of missions throughout the world at a banquet on Saturday Nov 4 1995 at 7 at the Holiday Inn in New Braunfels The complimentary dinner is sponsored by Wycliffe Associates a support ministry of Wycliffe Bible Translators Wycliffe Bible Translators was founded by Cameron Townsend in 1934 and now has over mis sionaries working in about 50 coun tries to translate the Bible into peoples heart languages Wycliffe translators live with the people to leam their lan guage and culture They develop an alphabet of the language analyze the grammar then produce primers and teach people to read Wycliffe works with national translators to translate the Bible so it speaks clearly and cor rectly they were locked away in fear To prove He was not a ghost He asked them for some thing to eat They gave Him a piece of broiled fish and some honeycomb which He ate in their presence proving that He was flesh and bone Why did Jesus pick the one meal that represented the horror of the cross to be remembered by Why did He choose the broken body and spilled blood to do in remembrance of Me The answer is found in the little book of Philippians written years later by Paul the Apostle In it he pens these words That I might know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings being conformed to His We desperately try to avoid the lessons of suffering in the Christian life dont vta In fact the church today has become masterful at comfort and has developed a long 1st of reasons why we should not suffer our calling is to know Him in participate in the darkness of pain knovong that the power of resurrection is just aroind the corner And so instead of sharing the table bf miraculous provision or the table of resii rection power or the table of deep Kenny Gammon Wycliffe Associates WA was organized in 1967 by members and friends of Wycliffe missionaries The orga nization now has over members who support Wycliffe financially or through handson involvement WA is a handson ministry that provides opportunities for those interested in helping translate the Bible for indigenous peo ple through volunteer programs Missionary Gammon an aerospace engineer previously worked for Douglas Aircraft in Tucson Ariz Since joining Wycliffe in 1960 Gammon has been utilizing his skills to support worldwide Bible translation efforts For complimentary tickets to this special dinner please call Ray Still at Oakwood Baptist Church ship Jesusvhose the table that represented the pain of death His instruc tion Do in memory of Because Ike it or not we are called to be conformed WHim in all ways Even when we suffer Charles Sputeon said it this way I bear willing I owe more to the fire and the hammi and the file than to any thing else in workshop I some times question I have ever learned anything except hrough the rod When my schoolroom is daWned I see Maybe you fiffl yourself at a point of great pain in yourtfe Some would tell you that you must be outside the blessing of God because of the Offering that you are in But the suffering isVctually the best indi cator that God is stillW your side Because it is through the trialshat we become more like Jesus So the next time youchurch celebrates the Eucharist remembW that Jesus chose that meal for a great impose It wasnt because it was the last W because it was the best to describe thfc way we would become like Him Because it is often in thfc darkness that we learn to see the most Dennis Gallaher is pastor of
