Weekly Letter From the Pastor Recently in the "Dear Padre" column which appears on the back page of Holy Family Parish's bulletin someone suggested that the First Eucharistic Prayer (Roman Canon) should include saints who are more familiar to us than those it does. I was especially thinking about this on September 16 The Memorial of Sts. Cornelius and Cyprian who are included in the Roman Canon. At least part of what the questioner in the column seemed to be saying was, "I want the Church to be familiar and comfortable". This is similar to people sometimes saying, "I want the Church to be the way it was when I was a little child". The Church should be comforting, however, it also needs to be challenging. We sometimes need to be taken out of our comfort zone as part of growing with Christ. We need to realize that the Church is far larger than our experience of her. For example, St. Cyprian was a Bishop of Carthage in the third century. Carthage is in modern day Algeria. It is worth knowing that Northern Africa was at one time largely Christian. Having a better awareness of Church History can help us avoid smallness and narrowness. Familiarity with the lives of the saints is a good way of learning more about that history.
