Christians and Jews are united in praying Psalm 31 as there is increasing likelihood of war with Russia. Consider reciting this prayer aloud as it is powerful.
This Psalm of David reads:
1 In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame;
deliver me in your righteousness.
2 Turn your ear to me,
come quickly to my rescue;
be my rock of refuge,
a strong fortress to save me.
3 Since you are my rock and my fortress,
for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
4 Keep me free from the trap that is set for me,
for you are my refuge.
5 Into your hands I commit my spirit;
deliver me, Lord, my faithful God.
6 I hate those who cling to worthless idols;
as for me, I trust in the Lord.
7 I will be glad and rejoice in your love,
for you saw my affliction
and knew the anguish of my soul.
8 You have not given me into the hands of the enemy
but have set my feet in a spacious place.
9 Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am in distress;
my eyes grow weak with sorrow,
my soul and body with grief.
10 My life is consumed by anguish
and my years by groaning;
my strength fails because of my affliction,
and my bones grow weak.
11 Because of all my enemies,
I am the utter contempt of my neighbors
and an object of dread to my closest friends—
those who see me on the street flee from me.
12 I am forgotten as though I were dead;
I have become like broken pottery.
13 For I hear many whispering,
“Terror on every side!”
They conspire against me
and plot to take my life.
14 But I trust in you, Lord;
I say, “You are my God.”
15 My times are in your hands;
deliver me from the hands of my enemies,
from those who pursue me.
16 Let your face shine on your servant;
save me in your unfailing love.
17 Let me not be put to shame, Lord,
for I have cried out to you;
but let the wicked be put to shame
and be silent in the realm of the dead.
18 Let their lying lips be silenced,
for with pride and contempt –
they speak arrogantly against the righteous.
19 How abundant are the good things
that you have stored up for those who fear you,
that you bestow in the sight of all,
on those who take refuge in you.
20 In the shelter of your presence you hide them
from all human intrigues;
you keep them safe in your dwelling
from accusing tongues.
21 Praise be to the Lord,
for he showed me the wonders of his love
when I was in a city under siege.
22 In my alarm I said,
“I am cut off from your sight!”
Yet you heard my cry for mercy
when I called to you for help.
23 Love the Lord, all his faithful people!
The Lord preserves those who are true to him,
but the proud he pays back in full.
24 Be strong and take heart,
all you who hope in the Lord.

With immense joy we welcomed Christ on the great Christmas feast and then we surrendered this year to the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary when we celebrated the feast of Mary Mother of God on January 1st.
We all pray that this year will be better and safer for all of us. Hopefully with God’s help we will be able to defeat the virus. Many of our parishioners are still suffering from Covid. Even though it is strange to say I am happy I experienced that too so I could share with many of you the burden of the illness. That makes me feel even more a part of our great family, since the true family shares all joys and burdens. I also want to thank you for your personal gifts that I received from you during Christmas. I keep you all in my prayers as my gift to you.
This year we also can be more active in the Church. The Pope wants to hear from us. We may think it is not possible since he lives far from us. However, we can speak up and be heard. The way our church is organized allows us to do so. The Pope encourages us to be a part of the “World-Wide Synod on Synodality” that he started last year. A synod is a forum and process for listening, dialogue and learning. In the end it is a direct and personal way to introduce to the Pope some concerns we may have noticed in our church. So, we are encouraged to reflect and speak.
Our parish is large, and I would like to hear from as many people as possible. That is why instead of organizing meetings in the church, especially now when Covid cases are high, I prepared materials that will help you participate in an attachment below. It starts with a Synodal prayer. The next part is the Liturgy of the Word. Each reading has a small introduction so you can focus better on the reading itself. Then you will find the Pope’s suggestions meant to guide you through the process of reflection. Please do not treat them as questions that need to be answered. They are suggestions only. You can look through them and simply consider one or two that may be of interest to you.
In conclusion, I will be happy to hear your ideas and concerns. Please send them on our parish email email@example.com. We will work to choose the topics that have been repeated or of the greatest concern. I consider this synod as a wonderful opportunity to pray at home either celebrating the Liturgy of the Word with your family or by yourself. Following the outline above you will be able to participate through reflection and in speaking.
Again, I wish you a blessed and beautiful year of 2022.
