The Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
The Humanity of the Lord
In the Gospel reading, Jesus and a crowd of people
are entering Nain when they meet a widowed mother
and a bier carrying the body of her only son. Jesus
says to her, “Don’t weep!” Then he halts the procession by touching the bier, and he speaks to the dead
body of her son: “Young man, I tell you, arise!” And the
dead man does arise! There other cases of Jesus’
raising of the dead, but there is something special
about this case.
In general, Jesus does miracles in response to requests for help;
certainly, he raises the dead because someone has asked him for help. Jairus
petitions Jesus to heal his daughter, and Lazarus’s sisters send to Jesus for
help when Lazarus is dying. But no one asks Jesus for help in the case of the
widow’s son. In this unusual case, Jesus sizes up the situation without anyone’s telling him anything about the weeping woman or her son. Somehow he
seems to know that she is a widow and that this is her only child; and he is
moved with pity for her. Without anyone’s recognizing who he is, or asking him
for anything, or showing any sign of faith in him, Jesus initiates the miracle and
raises the dead man.
Why does Jesus do this? Maybe when he sees the widow of Nain
heartbroken over the death of her only son, the case of his own mother pierces
his heart. We don’t know who was in that large crowd accompanying Jesus to
Nain, but his mother does travel with him at least sometimes. Maybe she was
there with him at Nain. Jesus is her only son too, and she is also a widow
when Jesus dies. Then she will be heartbroken and weeping for her only son.
In his humanity, Jesus may be moved by the weeping widow of Nain to
compassion not only for her but also for his own mother.
So maybe Jesus initiates this miracle to comfort both these women.
Maybe he hopes that when his mother is weeping for him at the foot of his
cross, the memory of his restoring the son of the widow of Nain to his weeping
mother will come into the mind of his own mother. His love for his mother is in
this miracle.

Episode 9:
Thursday, June 13th
at 7pm in the Parish Hall
In this lesson, Father Barron explores
Catholic spirituality, which is centered
on prayer. As the Catechism of the
Catholic Church states: “Prayer is the
lifting up of the mind and the heart to
On pilgrimage to the places
where the great saints and spiritual
masters lived, Father Barron explores
the different types of prayer: contemplation; adoration; petition; and intercession. In telling the stories of Catholics like Thomas Merton, St. Theresa of
Avila and St. John of the Cross, Fr.
Barron demonstrates how the human
person can be transformed through
prayer that manifests a deep, spiritual
commitment centered in Christ.
These are stand-alone episodes, so
even if you haven’t joined us before,
you will enjoy the beauty of the sights
and sounds of this series. Make time
to learn more about prayer!

The Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
We have only recently completed our annual
celebration of the season of Easter. Yet our
return to Ordinary Time begins with the
story of Jesus raising a dead man to life. God
brings us new life out of death every day of
our Christian journey. Every day Jesus encounters us on the way and has pity on us.
His love and compassion are so great and so
enduring that Jesus is always loving us into
ever deeper risen life. Every day he is saying
to us “Arise!”
when we think
we are going to
break from too
much tension,
are discouraged with
always playing
catch-up, are
doubting our ability to make a difference in
our world. What is our response to his everpresent gift of Life?
—Living Liturgy
Kid’s Corner
In this week’s
Gospel we hear
about a widow. A
widow is a woman
whose husband
has died. In
biblical times,
when a woman married she left her own
family behind and relied on her husband’s
family for her safety and security. If a
widow was left without any male family
member to protect her—even a young
son—then she was among the poorest of
the poor. The Bible often mentions widows
and orphans together as the weakest
members of society; it teaches and insists
that they receive special care. Take time
this week to say a prayer for the widows
you know. Ask God to bless them and give
them strength.

St. Barnabas, 1st century
Feast day: June 11
Though not one of the original
twelve apostles, Barnabas is named
as an apostle because of the
missionary work he accomplished
alone and with Paul. Barnabas was
a Jew, a Levite, who had gone to school with Paul.
Even after his conversion, Paul was feared by the
Jewish Christians because he had been such a jealous
persecutor of the newly formed community. It was
through Barnabas’ intervention that Paul was
eventually accepted and trusted.
Barnabas and Paul were frequent traveling and
teaching companions, especially in areas where the
Gentiles were showing an interest in Christianity. In
fact, Barnabas spent much of his time in Antioch, and
it was in Antioch that this newly formed religious
sect of Jesus’ followers were first called Christians.
The most valuable resource for information about
Barnabas is found in the book of the Acts of the
I will praise you, Lord,
for you have rescued me.
Congratulations to Msgr.
Robert Ecker, or Fr. Bob,
as we are fond of calling
him, on the 62nd anniversary of his ordination
to the priesthood.
We are blessed to be
counted among the many
parish communities Fr. Bob has served during
his years as a priest. We appreciate his faithful
service to our parish in celebrating Mass here
for us every Monday morning at 7:30am and
also filling in as needed.
Please join us on Monday, June 10th for 7:30am
Mass and for a small reception following in the
Parish Hall to honor Fr. Bob.

Decimo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
Resurrección del hijo de la viuda
de Naín
El evangelio de Lucas nos narra un
milagro de resurrección. Naín era y
sigue siendo, una pequeña aldea
cerca de Nazaret. Jesús iba con sus discípulos
cuando se cruzaron con el entierro del hijo único
de una viuda. Las viudas en la tradición bíblica,
eran vulnerables, y más aún si no tenían en la
familia un hijo varón que les garantizara seguridad y dignidad. Sólo el hombre garantizaba
para ellas un status dentro de la sociedad, pues
eran consideradas objetos de propiedad, primero del padre y luego de su marido. Eran valoradas especialmente por su condición de procreadoras. La pérdida de su hijo suponía también la
pérdida de dignidad y consideración en la sociedad donde vivía, máxime cuando ya había sufrido la pérdida de su marido, que le aseguraba
estabilidad y respeto.
El llanto de la viuda es el grito silencioso de una
mujer que siente no sólo la pérdida de su hijo
sino también su destino de vulnerabilidad.
Jesús se conmueve por la suerte de esta mujer,
se solidariza, la mira y la toma en cuenta, le pide
que no llore, se acerca al féretro... y ordena al
muchacho difunto que se levante. Finalmente,
Jesús coloca al muchacho con vida en brazos de
su madre, es decir le devuelve la vida y la dignidad a la mujer.
