Saint James The Greater July 25, 2017

 

The son of Zebedee and Salome (Cf. Matthew 27:56; Mark 15:40; 16:1). Zahn asserts that Salome was the daughter of a priest. James is styled “the Greater” to distinguish him from the Apostle James “the Less”, who was probably shorter of stature. We know nothing of St. James’s early life. He was the brother of John, the beloved disciple, and probably the elder of the two. Read more .. Here

Looking Ahead

Father Magiera will be on vacation from Monday, July 24 through Saturday, August 5. Unfortunately, since Father will not have an associate until September, there will be no daily Masses during that period, nor will there be the Thursday evening Holy Hour on July 27 and August 3. However, for the weekend of Saturday/Sunday, July 29/30, Father will have the following substitutes: Saturday, July 29, 4:15 PM, Father Bernie Danber, O.S.A.; Sunday, July 30, 10:00 AM, Father Scott Haynes, S.S.J.C.; Sunday, July 30, 5:30 PM (Naperville), Father Bernie Danber, O.S.A.

Father Magiera will be away again from Monday, August 14 through Saturday, August 26. Again, there will be no daily Masses or Holy Hours during that period. For the weekend of Saturday/Sunday, August 19/20, Father will have the following substitutes: Saturday, August 19, 4:15 PM: Father Bernie Danber, O.S.A.; Sunday, August 20, 10:00 AM, Father Bernie Danber, O.S.A.; Sunday, August 20, 5:30 PM (Naperville), a priest from the Society of St. John Cantius (S.S.J.C.). At this time, we do not know who it will be.

Father’s Associate is due to arrive either at the end of August or the beginning of September, so there will never again be any more Daily Mass “lacunae” in future. FYI, Father Magiera will be away again for the weekend of October 20 through 23, but, Father’s associate will take over the Mass schedule during that time.

There will be one more time when Father Magiera will be away in calendar year 2017, and that will be from December 25, 2017 through January 5, 2018.
