Portolá 250 Kickoff Day 1

Determined to Lead Pilgrimage to Retrace St. Junípero Serra’s Steps in California

Yesterday, at 2:00 pm, Saturday, August 31st, Patrick Sabat, the custodian of the World-Famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Fatima came to my neighborhood driving the slightly-well more than slightly-conspicuous Motorhome RV to pick me up to begin the journey to visit 21 Missions in 21 Days along with my colleagues Thomas McKenna and Anthony DeBellis. It was my son, Alex’ birthday and what better surpise than to be able to watch the neighborhood wonderment-what a great way to evangelize! He expects his friends to be asking him for weeks, ‘where is his dad now?’

The first step of the expedition started last night at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in Little Italy at 5:30 pm and arrived today, Sept. 1st, at the very first mission in Alta California, the Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcalá. From there, the expedition will visit each subsequent mission across the state, with a Sept. 11 crescendo event on the Capital steps in Sacramento.

You know well the passage of the dialogue between Jesus and the Apostles at Caesarea Philippi (Mt 16:13-20; Mk 8:27-33). Jesus asks His closest followers, “Who do people say that I am?”  They offer the different perceptions of the day, “Some say John the Baptist, others, Elijah, Jeremiah, or one of the Prophets.” “But who do you say that I am?” Peter responds quickly, “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God!” 

Jesus commends Peter, and entrusts to him the keys of the Kingdom; an extraordinary role in the Church. 

Imagine for a moment, if Peter, a few years later, after Jesus’ Death, Resurrection, and Ascension, posed the similar question in the Church. He asks, “What do people say about the Church and Her mission?” We could expect a variety of opinions and observations.

We can ask the same question today: What do people say about the Church? Who determines Her teachings and work?

The heart is often represented as the core or center of human emotions, and especially of love. The images of Valentine’s Day bear testimony to this. We know that the heart – along with the brain – performs one of the most important works of the body.  In the great first command of the Old Testament – and the New Testament – we are “to love the Lord Our God with all our mind, heart, soul and strength” (Dt 6: 4-5; Mt 22:37; Mk 12:29; Lk 10:27).

The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus is likewise a powerful sign or symbol of Christ’s love ‘in the flesh.’ When God took human flesh in the mystery of the Incarnation, there was formed in Him also a heart. After His death Jesus rose in the body. He ascended into Heaven in His body. And so His loving and Sacred Heart continues to live and beat.
