    Nostra Aetate

    A Message From Monsignor Massie:

    As we hear and meditate on the Passion/ Death and Resurrection of Christ during this week and Holy Week I ask all to keep in mind that these events are the founding events of our faith. Please all remember the following:

    “Even though the Jewish authorities and those who followed their lead pressed for the death of Christ neither all Jews indiscriminately at that time, nor Jews today can be charged with the crimes committed during his passion. It is true that the Church is the new people of God, yet the Jews should not be spoken of as rejected or accursed as if this followed from the holy Scriptures. Consequently, all must take care, lest in catechizing or preaching the Word of God, they teach anything which is not in accord with the truth of the Gospel message or the spirit of Christ.

    Indeed the Church proves every form of persecution against whomsoever it may be directed. Remembering, then, her common heritage with the Jews and moved not by any political consideration, but solely by religious motivation of Christian charity, she (the Church) deplores all hatreds, persecutions, displays of anti-Semitism leveled at any time or from any source against the Jews.

    The Church always held and continues to hold that Christ out of love freely underwent suffering and death because of the sins of all men, so that all might attain salvation. It is the duty of the Church, therefore, in her preaching to proclaim the cross of Christ as a sign of God’s universal love and source of all grace. (Nostra Aetate 28 October 1965 Vatican II Document)

  • Evangelization – the essential mission of the Church. As Jesus said at the end of the Gospel of Matthew: “Go and make disciples of all nations.” To evangelize means to bring the good news of the Gospel to all we encounter by teaching, being channels of the gift of grace, reconciling sinners with God, and perpetuating Christ’s sacrifice in the Mass. The fruit of evangelization is new disciples of Jesus.
  • Disciple – a person who accepts and assists in the spreading of the good news of Jesus Christ. Christian discipleship is the process by which disciples grow in the Lord Jesus Christ and are equipped by the Holy Spirit, who resides in our hearts, to overcome the pressures and trials of this present life and become more and more Christlike. This process requires believers to respond to the Holy Spirit’s prompting to examine their thoughts, words and actions and compare them with the Word of God and the Tradition of the Church as good stewards.
  • Steward – a person who accepts the responsibility that Christians have in maintaining and using wisely the gifts that God has bestowed. God wishes us to be his collaborators in the work of creation, redemption and sanctification. A good steward gives of their time, talent and treasure in order to be an collaborator in the work of evangelization.
