This Sunday at our St. Thomas Aquinas Cathedral in Reno Nevada, we will celebrate the Eucharist. Many do not understand the tradition behind it, which reaches back, not 2,000 years, but at least 3300 years. We also do not realize how it connect with our Catholic/Christian understanding with Justice. The Hebrew word for Justice is Tzaddic. The Hebrew word for Charity is Tzaddic. Read a rabbi one time who pointed out, if you read Deuteronomy 5:1-6 it reads:
Moses called all those who quarrel with God, and told them: Hear, you who quarrel with God, the customs and the correct judicial precedents which I speak in your ears, this day, that may learn them, and guard to do them.
The Personal Name our Mighty Judge made a Social Contract with us at Horeb/Mt. Sword, not with our fathers did he make this Social Contract, but with us, each of us, standing here, this day, alive.
(Remember) I am the Personal Name your Mighty Judge, who brought you! out of the land of out oppression, out of the house of menial labor. You will have no other Mighty Judges before My face.
