The Ascension of the Lord
From the Pastor’s Desk:
While Father Antony is on vaca!on
we are prin!ng past ar!cles that
Father had wri"en.
A couple of nuns were in the stands enjoying an
exci!ng football game. Some rude guys si%ng
behind them decided to badger the sisters to
get them to move. One man says to others, loud
enough for the nuns to hear, “I think I want to
move to Utah. There are only 100 Catholics
living there.” The second guy speaks up and
says, “I want to go to Montana, there are only
50 Catholics there. The third guy jumps in with,
“I want to go to Idaho, there are only 25
Catholics living there. One of the nuns finally
turns around and calmly says, “Why don’t you
all go to hell? There aren’t any Catholics there.”
A&er the Sunday Mass a li'le boy told the
pastor, "When I grow up, I'm going to give you
some money." Well, thank you," the pastor
replied, "but why?" "Because my daddy says
you're one of the poorest preachers we've ever
Four women were si%ng discussing their sons.
The first proudly stated that her son was a
bishop, so when he enters a room, people
address him as "Your Excellency." The second,
not to be outdone, said that her son is an
archbishop, so when he enters the room,
people address him as "Your Grace." The third
quietly stated that her son was a cardinal, so
when he enters the room, the people say: "Your
Eminence." The fourth woman said: "Well my
son is 7 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 430
pounds, and when he walks into a room people
say: "My God!"
Nota de nuestro pastor:
Mientras que el
Padre Antony esta de vacaciones estamos
imprimiendo un ar!culo pasado que el Padre había
Dos monjas estaban paradas disfrutando de un
emocionante par!do de football. Unos hombres
groseros que estaban sentados detrás de ellas
decidieron molestarlas para que se muevan. Un
hombre le dijo al otro, suficientemente alto para
que ellas puedan escuchar, “Yo creo que me
quiero mudar a Utah. Solo hay 100 católicos
viviendo allá.” El segundo !po habla y dice, “Yo
quiero ir a Montana, solo hay 50 católicos
viviendo allá.” El tercer hombre salta y dice, “Yo
quiero ir a Idaho, solo hay 25 católicos viviendo
allá.” Una de las hermanas finalmente se da la
vuelta y calmadamente dice, “Por que todos
ustedes no se van al infierno? No hay ni un
Católico allá.”
Después de la Misa de domingo un niño
pequeño le dice al cura, “Cuando crezca, Yo voy
a darle dinero.” “Bien, gracias,” le responde el
cura, “pero por que?” “Porque mi papá dice que
usted es uno de los predicadores mas pobres
que hemos tenido.”
Cuatro mujeres estaban sentadas hablando
sobre sus hijos. La primera declaró con orgullo
que su hijo era un Obispo, por lo que cuando él
entra en una habitación, la gente se le dirige
como "Su Excelencia." La segunda, no para no
quedarse atrás, dijo que su hijo es un Arzobispo,
por lo que cuando él entra en la habitación, la
gente se le dirigía como "Su Reverendísimo." La
tercera silenciosamente declaró que su hijo era
un Cardenal, así que cuando él entra en la
habitación, la gente dice: "Su Eminencia". La
cuarta mujer dijo: "Bien, mi hijo mide 7 pies 2
pulgadas de alto y pesa 430 libras y cuando él
entra en una habitación las personas
dicen:"¡Dios mío!"

On April 16, 2016 Pope
Francis made a lighting trip to
the Greek island of Lesbos, spending 6 hours there to draw
international attention to the plight of those fleeing across the
Mediterranean Sea to escape conflict and persecution in their
home countries. Many of the people are coming from Syria, but
they are also coming from Iraqi and Afghanistan. Lesbos has
borne the brunt of the refugee influx into Europe with more than
85% of the 1.1 million people coming through that island last
year. This was Pope Francis’ 13th journey outside Italy, but as
he told journalists on the short plane trip from Rome, this visit
was different. It was a visit marked by sadness for the suffering
of so many people caught up in the worst humanitarian crisis
since World War II. Alongside Pope Francis were Ecumenical
Patriarch Bartholomew (the spiritual leader of the world’s 300 million Orthodox Christians) and Orthodox
Archbishop Hieronymus of Athens. The three religious leaders were able to see and hear firsthand the suffering
of the women who had lost their husbands to war, the men weeping and pleading for help for the security of their
families, and the children’s depictions on paper of the perilous boat journeys they went through. The three
walked around a camp, held hands, listened to stories, gave blessings and promised to do whatever they can.
They held a service to bless those who had died trying to reach Europe. Last month the European Union and
Turkey agreed to seal off the sea route used by migrants trying to reach wealthy Western Europe after the
Balkan states shut their borders to these migrants. So the agreement stranded thousands in Greece and
transformed this camp and the others into detention centers where people now anxiously wait to learn whether
they will be sent back to Turkey, or allowed to join family and friends in other European countries. Speaking after
these visibly moving encounters, Pope Francis said we all know how easy it is “to ignore other people’s suffering
and even to exploit their vulnerability”. But he also praised the solidarity of the Greek people who’ve responded
generously to the crisis amid their own economic difficulties. Lesbos alone is currently home to almost 90.000
refugees, more than its original population before the crisis began. He urged world leaders to “heed these scenes
of tragic and indeed desperate need and respond in a way worthy of our common humanity.” His words were
echoed by those of the Patriarch and Archbishop who said the world will be judged by the way it treats these
refugees. The three religious leaders are hoping that political leaders across Europe would look beyond their
short term interests and find lasting solutions to guarantee safety and dignity to so many suffering families. Pope
Francis wanted to make a gesture himself so through discussions with Greek and Italian authorities, it was
arranged to take three Syrian families and their six children back with him on the plane to Italy. The Vatican will
be taking care of the costs involved in housing and taking care of the refugees. Sources:,,
