This Week at St Timothy's
Almighty and everlasting God, you govern all things both in heaven and on earth: Mercifully hear the supplications of your people, and in our time grant us your peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Feria
Intention: for the Anglican Shrine of OLW
Words defined:

Intention: In the Holy Eucharist we receive remission of our sins and "all other benefits of his passion." In the celebration of the Eucharist, we apply those benefits to a particular intention. You can see examples of masses for particular intentions on pages 199-210 in the Prayer Book. 17th century Anglican divine Jeremy Taylor wrote, " "It follows then that the celebration of this sacrifice be, in its proportion, an instrument of applying the proper sacrifice to all the purposes for which it was first designed. It is ministerially, and by application, an instrument propitiatory; it is eucharistical; it is an hommage and an act of adoration, and it is impetratory, and obtains for us and for the whole church, all the benefits of the sacrifice, which is now celebrated and applied; that is, as this rite is the remembrance and ministerial celebration of Christ's sacrifice, so it is destined to do honour to God... to beg pardon, blessings, and supply of all our needs" (Discourse XlX, 4).

Adoration
From the Choir Loft | Christin Barnhardt
This Friday evening for Candlemas, Christin Barnhardt, Robert Matthews, and Chris Ervin will sing William Byrd's Mass for Three Voices.  

Byrd's three unaccompanied masses composed during the 1590s are masterpieces of late Elizabethan polyphony. These masses - for three, four, and five voices - were composed for Catholics' secret use during a period when celebration of the mass was forbidden in England. The Mass for Three Voices (1593-1594) is the briefest of Byrd's masses, perhaps because the opportunities for expanding the thematic material are limited by only having three voices. The vocal writing is fairly straightforward. It is mostly syllabic (one note per syllable) with a few melismatic moments (many notes per syllable), but Byrd manages to create some beautifully expressive moments that highlight the text well.

This Sunday, the full choir will sing Hugo Distler's arrangement of the hymn "Praise to the Lord," which the choral scholars sang last Sunday. This is a rhythmic and lively arrangement of the familiar hymn, and we hope that it will help enliven your worship on Sunday. We always have extra chairs in the choir loft on Sunday mornings and in rehearsal on Wednesday evenings. If you would like to come sing with us or have any questions about what that would look like, please contact me at christin@sttimothys.ws or call the church office.

At the 9am mass, Mary Berstone, soprano; David Berstone, horn, will sing "Morning Star in Darkest Night," a Moravian anthem composed by Julius Otto (1804-1877) and edited by Nola Reed Knouse in 2016.

At the 11am mass, Sarah Taylor, mezzo soprano will sing Felix Mendelssohn's "O Rest in the Lord" from Elijah.

See you Sunday,

Formation
The Way | Father DJ
I will be absent from St. Tim’s for a short time to participate in one of the oldest Christian devotional practices: going on a pilgrimage. I am going on pilgrimage to the small rural village of Walsingham, England, to visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. One of the oldest and most venerated pilgrimage sites in the British Isles, the Shrine dates back to 1091, even older than the more famous shrine of St. Thomas Becket at Canterbury (of Canterbury Tales fame). My prayer is that the journey will be a fruitful one for me in my own walk with Christ, and that it will strengthen me for the ministry to which he has called me.

Truth be told, the Christian life as a whole is really a kind of pilgrimage. This is not a new idea, by any means. The Pilgrim’s Progress, written by John Bunyan in 1678 and one of the best-selling English novels of all time, portrays the life of an individual Christian allegorically as a journey along the straight and narrow King’s Highway to the Celestial City.

But this idea is even older. Throughout the New Testament, the Apostles suggest that Christians are strangers and pilgrims in this present, because “our citizenship is in heaven,” (Philippians 3:20), that is, our true home is where God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – reigns. Since we still pray for God’s Kingdom to come “on earth as it is in heaven,” we are still ‘not quite at home’ in this world, but rather finding our way to our true home. In fact, the earliest name for the Christian faith was “the Way,” as evidenced in the Book of Acts (for example, in 9:2). And, in John 14:6, Jesus calls himself “the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” Thus, Jesus is not only the goal of our pilgrimage, but also the very road that gets us there.

Wherever our feet may take us, let us, as brothers and sisters in Christ, walk this way together, till we all reach the true Shrine, where all wanderings come to an end.
