Gospel of 15 May 2024

Protect them from the evil one

John 17:11-19

Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said:

‘Holy Father, keep those you have given me true to your name, so that they may be one like us. While I was with them, I kept those you had given me true to your name. I have watched over them and not one is lost except the one who chose to be lost, and this was to fulfil the scriptures.

But now I am coming to you and while still in the world I say these things to share my joy with them to the full. I passed your word on to them, and the world hated them, because they belong to the world no more than I belong to the world. I am not asking you to remove them from the world, but to protect them from the evil one. They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world.

Consecrate them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world, and for their sake I consecrate myself so that they too may be consecrated in truth.’

Reflection on the photograph

In the prayer that Jesus taught his disciples, the 'Our Father', one of the concluding petitions is, ‘Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil’. Jesus understood the challenges we face in maintaining our relationship with God, and how our faith, hope, and love may be tested in various ways. Life presents us with trials and temptations that can divert us from our intended path, much like the scene depicted in this photograph from 1918, showing a car crash. In the image, the wheels are detached and the vehicle has veered off course, illustrating how easily we can lose our way when faced with unexpected obstacles or temptations.

In the 1910s, photography underwent significant advancements, particularly in its application beyond portraiture. Although portraits remained a prevalent use of photography, the decade witnessed a notable shift towards its use in journalism and documenting current events. This transition was spurred by technological developments, including improvements in camera design and film processing techniques, which made it easier for photographers to capture moments quickly and effectively.

As newspapers and magazines sought to provide readers with more visually engaging content, they began to rely on photographs to accompany news stories and articles. Photojournalism emerged as a powerful tool for storytelling. Photographers like Lewis Hine, Jacob Riis, and Alfred Stieglitz became pioneers of this new form of journalism, using their cameras to shed light on social injustices, urban poverty, and the human condition, or as is the case here, highlighting unusual city events.

There are many influences in our world trying to knock us off course. Yet, as Jesus says to God in that reading, ‘I am not asking you to remove them from the world’. But he does ask for our protection to help us live out our faith in the world, with all the temptations and darkness that we experience at times.

There is so much kindness. I will explain why I have taken a tumble today. Some of you share similar difficulties. It is my husband’s 80th birthday next month. He and I are seeing a show on the day. We have organised a party with our son and his two boys down in London. A kids type party – superman birthday cake, crisps and ham sandwiches, sausage rolls, the little grandson is only 5, he will probably make muffins! Also our son has arranged a day to watch cricket – my husband’s passion.

Our daughter who lives a mile away and never see, well nothing arranged with her and unlikely to be. It has made me very low. We have older grandsons with her 21 and 19, we never see them.

Dear Janey…I know these occasions are very hard. Be grateful for your dear husband, son and the grandchildren you can be with. I know, you always think of the ones who are missing. I’ve been there too many times. I know it hurts, but focus on what you have, not what you’ve lost.
God bless you.

Next week we also have been invited to a family party. Two of my grandchildren will be there, the other will not because her mother won’t allow it. Very mixed feelings for me too but for my grandchild she will be missing out once again. She has never met her cousins. You are not alone Janey,

I am dwelling on Father Patrick’s reflection about the technological changes in photography. And what about the automobile? 1918. Cars were a novelty, and especially a luxury model like this one (not a Ford). The men touch it and look on with awe. The right front headlight akimbo.

I worry about the AI technological revolution today. How hard it is to discern presence of the Evil One. Dear Lord, we need your protection.

I’m feeling a bit low today. All this talk of death and euthanasia/assisted dying (which is another way of saying terminating another’s life) made me wonder what should I have put on my gravestone:

She could have done better, but she did the best she could.

I’m at a stage where I know I can’t do any more with my challenges, I can’t do more than I can, so I will do just what I can or nothing at all.

I feeling a little bitter – God forgive me, I feel so alone and struggling.

Should I send this or not………………..

Dear Janey M, Try to accept the truth in today’s Gospel reading: “I say these things to share my joy with them to the full.”
Love one another. I am working on that commandment in order to share in the joy. I wish I could offer more.

Dear Janey, allow me a few words of encouragement:
We are part of a privileged generation. We will live longer and enjoy better health than previous generations. We have benefited from a period of great social and economic stability, unique in history. We are allowed to retire at an age where we can enjoy and learn new things.
For this reason, I dare say that there has not been and will not be another generation, with privileges and prerogatives, such as ours. Let’s use the time and enjoy with the people we love. ¡¡ Let’s thank God!! “Sursum corda”

Yes Janey I for one am glad you sent it. On my gravestone I think it should say, ‘She wasn’t as sensible as you all thought she was!’

Do the little things with great love. Pope Francis has some wonderful things to say about ageing, that in some ways it is right we should withdraw a little. I don’t want to depress you but help lift your spirits if I can.

Be sure you are a valued contributor here, and always in my prayers.

Dear Sfg, and all of you, as we pray for each and everyone, His pure light to show us the way, His wisdom to sort through the things that block our path – what should I find room for, what should I shovel away. Discernment, what can I solve and what should I leave to Him – or what should I let others take responsibility for!

Many, many blessings. There is much to thank the Lord for, just sometimes that little gremlin finds a way in. Get behind me Satan, you will not have the last word.

Jesus is Lord, Allelulia.

Dear Janey…lift up your heart and your spirit to the Lord. He will help you. He is the way, the truth and the life. Do not despair. The hurt and sadness we all must endure will go away, not by someone else’s hand but by His. I know you feel alone, but you are not, the Lord is with you. We do the best we can, and often fall short. Keep trying to do more with your challenges and if you feel you just cannot do it, just let it go. Lay it down, Janey…leave it to the Lord.
I had a little wooden cross that someone gave me once. Like a ritual, everyday I would put it in my pocket or stuff it in my bra before going to work. I just had to have it on my person, close to me. One night I lost it. I was almost frantic when I could’nt find it. I looked for that cross everywhere for three days. One morning I caught one of my little dogs chewing on something and went to take it away from her. It was that cross, all wet, chewed up and ruined. I realized then that I had been carrying around a lot of things that hurt me, bothered me and made me anxious, and like that silly ritual every morning, I was determined to find it and keep it on me. I put it on a desk where I keep some very special articles of faith, under a picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. There it sits. I laid it down, never to be worn again. I gave it the Lord, and somehow I feel a lot better about letting that cross go.
You are a good person, Janey. Don’t ever give up…just keep moving forward.

Thank you, Carol, lay it down and let God take control. I do feel burdened, I can’t deny it, and today it’s just one of those days. I have just this minute broken two porcelain ladies whilst dusting. It could have been worse, it could have been the one my husband bought me for my 60th birthday. Praise God. A bit like your wooden cross, there is a message there, has to be I don’t believe things just happen. I have been praying all day, there has been an answer, I just have to hear it.

I do feel we (as Christians and as a church) are under attack. You can sense it. Things other than ‘good’ seem to hold sway. now.. Protect us (especially children) from all evil. Amen.

I watched a programme called ‘Better off Dead’ on telly last night with brilliant actress and disability campaigner Liz Carr where she was railing, along with others with disabilities, against the proposed law for Assisted Dying. It was excellent!!! Lord save us from such legislation.

Nice things: we had Mother’s Prayers yesterday. The focus was on Pentecost and the Holy Spirit – one lovely lady said we receive the Holy Spirit at Baptism and then at Confirmation but that flame, though real, is small – like the pilot light on your boiler. But it can be fired up into a powerful flame – you just have to ask and be open ☺️ ” How much more will He give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him..?” The Spirit enables you to be used, for others. Wonderful.

We are going to Spain for 10 days tomorrow (with the car, Portsmouth to Santander) and our first stop is Cangas del Narcea where we will stay in a paradore which was a monastery…it still has a chapel! We will enjoy a leisurely tour back along the Asturian and Cantabrian coasts (where I note it is absolutely bucketing down ☔)

‘Protect them from the evil one.’ Jesus intervenes for us all the time. He sent the Holy Spirit to keep us ‘on track.’ We have so many symbols for the ‘Paraclete’ maybe one of them should be a map!

The first ever car accident I had was not a serious one, although the wheel didn’t come off I did take a corner too tight and scraped a car parked outside the doctor’s surgery. I was very apologetic of course, but the driver merely said, ‘It’s only a bit of metal.’

I think we can see temptations and distractions this way too. No one was injured in this photograph- it is indeed merely a wheel that has come off. All the petty little attempts those impish spirits make to send us of course are to be seen like this. Our souls, consecrated through baptism and completed in confirmation, are indeed clothed in the armour of prayer we can renew every single day.

My wife’s aunt’s funeral today. Her last days were rather as Father Will described yesterday. Dementia, despair and sadness for her family. This problem of people living too long, basically, is not going away and the Church has a very clear position on not artificially bringing human life to an end.
What are we all to do?

That’s a bit downbeat. I’m meeting some of my male friends tonight for dinner (Catenian Association). I always end the evening with a Jewish joke of which there is a plentiful supply on YouTube. Why are they so good at humour? I suppose they have needed it over the centuries.

I’m sorry for your loss Chazbo. It sounds as if her passing was a blessing, which it often is despite some of the things I said yesterday. Seeing our loved one’s suffer is an endurance test for sure.
I do take issue with your statement about living too long, and by whose measure? Years ago people died very young due to lack of medical knowledge. In my own lifetime I have lost family members very young. One age only 2 and one only 18. Life for them and us would have been a gift, not a burden.

Downbeat, you? Enjoy your dinner this evening. Why are the Jews so good at humour, as you claim? I will let you answer that question in light of your previous statements.

Just off but have more to say…..why are the Jews so good at everything one might ask?

Also your second paragraph doesn’t tie in with my point. We are all born to have a full and fulfilled life as Our Lord said. Your relations dying at those young ages is terrible and no one would dispute that. It’s people suffering well into their eighties and nineties and wishing they were gone.
And I’m not saying that such people should be euthanased as that is a very worrying idea but just that it is a growing problem in our society.

The Jews are no better or worse than anyone else. Even the term Jew provokes the response- those Jews by birth or those by faith? You probably be too busy to answer!

My reference was in response to the suffering of the Jewish people down the ages, and the fact that their humour probably springs out of that suffering.

I think we are opening up a whole different discussion here though- so I will bow out.

Chazbo, your comments today and those of previous days I think respond to what you have lived these last days of life of your family… It seems to me that we actually live many years (my parents and my mother-in-law died before the pandemic, the three of them around the age of 100) and today medicine has evolved a lot … , in most cases you can avoid the unbearable suffering.. , avoid it, to me it seems absolutely moral and human….” Palliative care” offers the possibility of making physical or moral suffering more bearable, and generally improving the quality of life of a sick person in the last phase of his life. These include the increased use of anesthetics to cope with unbearable pain. Although some of these medical technologies may advance the death of the patient, the intention is not to cause death but to carry the last stretch of life in the best and most humane way possible…
On the other hand, there is what the Church calls “therapeutic incarnation”: it is a different situation. When all hope of regaining consciousness, and brain life has disappeared without possibility of return, maintain a species of artificial life dependent on sophisticated devices…no longer corresponds to the dignity of the patient or the emotional process of his relatives. If it were intended to continue this situation indefinitely, with the only result of having a body that breathes and circulates blood… , that’s therapeutic cruelty, and that’s not something the Catholic Church asks anyone…

Here we go;
A Catholic priest is in the confessional with a big queue waiting for confession. Then his housekeeper rushs over and says “Father, you’ve got to get up to the hospital someone is dying and they want you”.
Father tells his housekeeper to go and ask his friend, the local rabbi, to come over and help with the confessions.
He says to his friend “sit in the confessional with me for a while and you’ll soon get the hang of this”.
The first person comes in “Bless me father for I have sinned’. “What sin have you committed?” Adultery was the answer. “How many times?” “three times”. The priest tells him to say three Hail Marys as penance.
Then the next person comes in and says the same thing. She gets three Hail Marys as penance.
“So Rabbi Jonathan, you get the idea. Now can you take over?”
The next person comes in and says “Bless me father for I have sinned.” What sin have you committed?” Says the rabbi. Adutery is the answer and he asks her how many times she has committed the sin. “Once” says the lady.
“Go into the church and say three Hail Marys and this will put you two adulteries in credit and then head off and enjoy yourself!!

May your poor aunt rest in peace after her struggles and peace be with you, too, in your loss. On your further points, though… Are we forgetting the sanctity of human life in these times when we believe we have, or should be able to have, control over every aspect of our existence? Do we also have the temerity to think we should have the right to determine how, why or when anyone else’s life should end? We are taught in our faith that there is only one arbiter and judge: God – as Jesus was continually having to remind his disciples with regard to the fate that awaited Him. Otherwise, where does it all end?

It may be to insist…. but the Catholic Church does NOT defend suffering and pain above all… When death can no longer be avoided…the farewell of family and friends and the preparation of that farewell in a serene atmosphere of faith… justifies sedation…. , that is NOT euthanasia

What a brilliant choice of photo. (Sometimes I can relate to “feeling” just like that car! Then the need for help and for getting back on track is greatest.)
In this powerful extract (John 17), Jesus selflessly prays to God to keep his followers true to the divine name and protect them from the evil one. He acknowledges the challenges they face in the world, but emphasizes the importance of staying grounded in truth. It’s a message of unity, protection, and purpose that still resonates today. It also highlights the importance of faith and staying true to one’s beliefs, even in the face of adversity. And so I see it as a reminder to us to seek truth and strive for unity, despite the challenges we may face (or we might all end up looking like that car). What steps can we take in our own lives to stay grounded in truth and protect ourselves from negativity and evil influences?

We are all that car Michael- everyday I go off-course in a miriad ways.
What steps can we take? Mary answered that question iin the way I would.
Pray, go to mass if possible, pray some more.
Every morning I try to write my list of expectations for the day, and in the evening I try to reflect back on them. This helps me at least to have a ‘road-map’ but by evening (if I don’t feel to tired to write, which I often do) I often have to look at where I went off course!
I like to think it helps keep the distractions at bay, but also shows how I will always fail regardless.
Hope your day is a good one for you today.
