EXTRAORDINARY FORM OF THE MASS: Celebrant Rev. Jeffery A. Fasching
June 20th, 2010 4th Sunday after Pentecost
Rom. 8, 18-23
Luc. 5, 1-11
“Sacred Scripture teaches that man was created ‘in the image of God’, as able to know and love his Creator, and as set by him over all earthly creatures that he might rule them, and make use of them, while glorifying God” (Vatican II, Gaudium et spes, 12). Saint Paul says that creation is subject to futility due to the disorder resulting from sin. Material goods should be used as resources enabling us to attain our ultimate goal. If we use them in a disordered way we disconnect them from God and therefore turn them into instruments of sin.

From Father Fasching
Peter does not want our Lord to leave him. Peter is aware of his sinfulness and he declares his unworthiness to be near Christ. Peter’s attitude is similar to that of the centurion who stated his unworthiness to have Christ come into his house. This is the same attitude we must have before receiving the Blessed Eucharist. We must also show due external reverence to the Blessed Sacrament when going to Communion. This is why Peter falls to his knees. Peter shows that internal adoration of God should be expressed externally as well.
