Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – Generosity
The Gospel for the Epiphany of the Lord is a beautiful one. It beckons us to
consider how we pay homage to the Lord in our own lives. We are certainly not
kings in the sense that the Magi were. We do not rule nations. But we do share
in the kingly office of Christ as a result of our Baptism. This means we must
rule as He ruled: offering everything we have to God and being generous with
our possessions and treasures. These treasures might not be gold,
frankincense, or myrrh. They might instead be our time and energy spent more
intentionally for prayer and service to others within our parish and within the
wider community. As Pope Benedict XVI said in his homily for World Youth Day
in 2008, “The Church needs your faith, your idealism, and your generosity, so
that she can always be young in spirit.” archstl.org/dynamic
Epiphany Proclamation 2017
While a day like Christmas is fixed in our minds and on the calendars on December 25th, many of the
important feasts of the Church year move, based upon the date that Easter is set. Easter changes each
year moving to the Sunday after the "Paschal Full Moon," and can fall between March 22 and April 25.
In ancient times before calendars were common, most people did not know the dates for the upcoming
Liturgical year. On Epiphany Sunday, the upcoming dates were "proclaimed" after the gospel in this way:
Dear brothers and sisters, the glory of the Lord has shone upon us, and shall ever be manifest among us,
until the day of his return. Through the rhythms of times and seasons let us celebrate the mysteries of
salvation. Let us recall the year's culmination, the Easter Triduum of the Lord: his last supper, his
crucifixion, his burial, and his rising celebrated between the evening of the Thirteenth day of April and the
evening of the Fifteenth day of April, Easter Sunday being on the Sixteenth day of April.
Each Easter -- as on each Sunday -- the Holy Church makes present the great and saving deed
by which Christ has forever conquered sin and death.
From Easter are reckoned all the days we keep holy.
Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the fast of the most sacred Lenten season, will occur on the First day of
The Ascension of the Lord will be commemorated on the Twenty-Fifth day of May.
Pentecost, joyful conclusion of the season of Easter, will be celebrated on the Fourth day of June.
And, this year the First Sunday of Advent will be on the Third day of December.
Likewise the pilgrim Church proclaims the Passover of Christ in the feasts of the holy Mother of God,
in the feasts of the Apostles and Saints, and in the commemoration of the faithful departed.
To Jesus Christ, who was, who is, and who is to come, Lord of time and history, be endless praise, for
ever and ever. Amen.

In the evening of Tuesday, December 27th, a fire was detected at St.
Monica in Creve Coeur. Several area fire departments promptly
responded and were able to quickly extinguish the fire, limiting the fire
damage to the sanctuary area.
The fire did not damage the church structurally, however, there is now
significant smoke and water damage throughout the entire church. The
parish's nativity set was engulfed, the hymnals will need to be replaced,
and the pulpit and presidential chair were damaged. We know the altar
top was damaged beyond repair, though the lower portion is
salvageable. Clean-up and restoration will take several weeks, though
the full extent of the damage is still being assessed.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
We would ask that you keep the parish community of St. Monica in your
