Message from Fr. Moki, April 26 2017

Dear Cathedral Ohana:

I returned yesterday from a quick visit to Hawai‘i Island to spend time with my grandmother. It is always good to see and spend time with her and I am glad to be back in Honolulu as of yesterday afternoon. Every time I go back to my family home, I always reflect on how different my family homestead is from downtown Honolulu. They are like different planets, especially since the elevation at my grandmother’s house is quite high and the fog often rolls in in the morning. That is in great contrast to the blue sky and sunshine that I am enjoying as I sit on my lanai and write to you this afternoon.

Sunday
The Sunday after Easter is traditionally what they call a “low Sunday,” but that was not the case at the Cathedral. We had 217 people come to worship over four services this past Sunday and I enjoyed the opportunity to tell you my story about the opihi shell that my uncle polished for me many years ago. Sadly, I cannot find the shell. I searched for it frantically on Saturday night so that I could wear it on Sunday morning, but I fear it got lost in the move from Hilo to Honolulu.

Dear Cathedral Ohana:

Post-Easter, I have been sitting on my lanai in the mornings and watching a pair of terns flying back to their nest to feed their babies in one of the trees on Queen Emma Square. This morning when I saw them return to feed their young after being out at sea, it reminded me of how Christ returned to all of us in the resurrection that we commemorated at our services this weekend. He went away, and then he returned. In addition to that, the two terns flying in the air and hovering above that tree reminded me of the Holy Spirit and how she is always present in our midst, hovering around and waiting to land on our hearts.

Dear Cathedral Ohana:

The holiest and most sacred time of the year is upon us and this morning I sat in the Cathedral in the company of a street person. Each of us, in our own private ways, sat in prayer. I felt the Christ within her ministering to me and I hope the Christ within me did the same for her. If that did indeed happen, then this truly is a holy Holy Week. And as I left the sanctuary to come back into the office, I was glad to know that because of all we do, people can come into our worship space, say prayers, and feel the presence of God. Furthermore, it’s nice to know that not only are we blessed; we are also a blessing to others. That makes me very proud to be your priest and to serve at the Cathedral. Let’s not lose sight of the way we can and do touch people’s lives.

A Special Mahalo
Last week I received a very gracious letter from Father Malcolm Chun where he submitted his resignation as Canon Pastor at the Cathedral. His last day in the office will be Friday, April 21st and that means that his last Sunday with us will be Easter Sunday. As such, Bishop Fitzpatrick has asked that he preside at the 8:00 Easter service and Father Malcolm has accepted the Bishop’s invitation to do so.
