Hello! My name is Emma Kloes and I am a college student at UW-Madison.  Although I love my home in Madison, I also loved growing up in Hortonville as a parishioner of Ss. Peter and Paul.  Ss. Peter and Paul has always been very special to me; there is something that this community has that is unlike any other.  Some visiting priests say that it’s our strong voices in communal prayer or our beautiful, loud singing.  I’d have to agree with them, but the uniqueness of our parish is more than our loud voices.  It’s the dedication to service, radiant joy, fire for the Catholic faith, and pure love that I have witnessed in so many of you.  This has taught me the importance and pure goodness of living a life for Christ. The transition to life in college was not an easy one, but Ss. Peter and Paul had fortunately equipped me for living out my faith amidst the secular college culture of Madison.  I want to thank you and give back to our beautiful community here by sharing various reflections each week in our bulletin. I hope to share with you all the beauty of Catholicism along with ways we can live out this faith, striving for holiness and heaven.    Emma~

 

July 14th

Something that never fails to surprise me is how universal the Mass is, no matter the time, country, or language. I was on a mission trip to Haiti not too long ago and attended a Mass said in Creole, and I just went to Mass said in Spanish at a cathedral in Posadas, Argentina where I am studying right now. Even though these Masses were celebrated in different countries and in different locations, they helped me feel a little more at home in these foreign places. There was familiarity in the readings, the consecration, the evident love and joy emitted by the people, and the receiving of Holy Communion.

 

One clear difference about the Masses I’ve attended in other countries, however, whether that be in Canada, the Virgin Islands, Haiti, or Argentina, is how the people process to receive communion. I am always struck by how there is less order, less straight lines to follow. Last Sunday in Posadas, the priest said something along the lines of “those who have prepared their hearts to receive the Eucharist, please come forward,” then all of a sudden people from all areas of the cathedral stood up and went to receive Jesus. There were no lines, but just a crowd of people in the main aisle. When I have seen this happen in the past I’ve usually been consumed with anxiety and frustration. But last Sunday after reflecting a bit on the Mass, I didn’t see a disorganized mess but rather people gathering to receive Jesus with strong desire, need, and surrender in their hearts. This made me think more about our preparation to receive Holy Communion. In that walk down the aisle are we daydreaming, or are we preparing our hearts to receive Jesus who is above us all, Jesus who died for us, Jesus who is merciful?

 

Happy Sunday from Argentina!

July 8, 2018

I’m writing this week’s article from Mobile, Alabama. I work for a summer mission trip organization called Alive in You Catholic Camps, where we host five camps in five different cities around the United States. We just arrived in Mobile after an eight hour drive from Knoxville, Tennessee. Knoxville was a great camp, especially because Ss. Peter and Paul took 46 campers to do service projects around the city, celebrate Mass, pray, go to confession, and grow in love with one another and for Jesus Christ. 

This past week in Knoxville was very special as we celebrated Mass in the newest cathedral in the United States. It was absolutely beautiful, but the presence of the 350 youth in that cathedral every day increased its beauty. We are so very blessed to have youth on fire for the Catholic faith here at Ss. Peter and Paul; youths that are selfless, hard working, and striving for holiness. These teens and young adults are ready to share their stories and encounters with Christ! Please keep the returning campers in your prayers as they try to bring the joy, love, faith, and community they experienced in Knoxville back into their communities. They are a huge part of the Church today, and have so much potential to change our world. 

 

Happy Sunday!

 

Emma
