PASTOR’S COLUMN
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
“They made themselves a molten calf … worshipping it …” Exodus 32:8
It is easy to fall into worshipping false gods like satanism, power, pleasure,
race, money, superstitions, horoscopes, Ouija boards and many others. The
Lord calls us to leave all this and embrace Him, the Only God. Jesus Christ
comes to free us from all these lies.
“Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” 1 Timothy 1:15
In today’s Gospel, we see this in the prodigal son. He made his god a life of
dissipation. But the grace of God called him back to his dignity.
“Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you …” Luke 15:21
Our merciful Father receives us as He does the prodigal son with love
when we acknowledge our sins.
“He ran to his son, embraced him and kissed him …” Luke 15:20
May the Saints encourage us to overcome all temptations.
Monsignor Lorenzo Miranda

FAITH BUILDING
“WHERE IS GOD WHEN I
NEED HIM MOST?”
Two men, upset over the murder of a friend,
were walking to the next town. Along the way,
they struggled to understand how such a thing
could happen and worried that God had abandoned them.
A stranger who was
also walking to the same
Trust in God is often town joined them, heard
hardest when it is their conversation, and explained how the recent
most necessary. events could be seen as
part of God’s plan. At dinner that night, the stranger
miraculously turned out to be the very friend
they were grieving. Though they didn’t realize it,
God was walking with them (Luke 24).
Sometimes, events or experiences in our
lives can lessen our awareness of God and
make Him appear distant. As a result, we can
become too worried, too sad, or too angry to
find Him. For example, preoccupied by grief, the
two friends on the road failed to recognize God
walking right next to them.
Trust in God is often hardest when it is most
necessary. The truth is that He is always with us
whether we “feel” it or not. He promised that He
would never abandon us, and God always
keeps His promise.
“… All things work for good for
those who love God, who are called
according to His purpose” (Romans
8:28).

CATECHETICAL SUNDAY
SEPTEMBER 18
“PRAYER: THE FAITH PRAYED"
This year, the Church will celebrate Catechetical Sunday, on September 18 and will focus on the theme "Prayer: The Faith Prayed."
Those who the Community has designated
to serve as catechists will be called forth to be
commissioned for their ministry.
Catechetical Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each person
plays, by virtue of
Baptism, in handing on the faith
and being a witness to the Gospel.
Catechetical
Sunday is an opportunity for all to
rededicate themselves to this mission as a
community of faith.

Mary, Jesus’ mother, also was distraught by
His death. Yet instead of being overwhelmed by
it, she stood with dignity at the foot of His cross.
She acted on the faith that God would prevail.
And her reward for her faith in His promise was
amazing.

SEPTEMBER 11, 2016
St. John, named Chrysostom
(golden-mouthed) on account of his
eloquence, came into the world to
Christian parents, about the year
344, in the city of Antioch.
His mother, at the age of 20,
was a model of virtue. He studied
rhetoric under Libanius, a pagan,
the most famous orator of the age.
In 374, he began to lead the life
of an anchorite in the mountains
near Antioch, but in the year 386
the poor state of his health forced
him to return to Antioch, where he
was ordained a priest.
In 398, he was elevated to the See of Constantinople and became one of the greatest lights of
the Church.
But he had enemies in high places and some
were ecclesiastics, not the least being Theophilus, Patriarch of Alexandria, who repented of this
before he died.
His most powerful enemy, however, was the
empress Eudoxia, who was offended by the apostolic freedom of his discourses.
Several accusations were brought against
him in a pseudo-council, and he was sent into
exile. In the midst of his sufferings, like the apostle, St. Paul, whom he so greatly admired, he
found the greatest peace and happiness. He had
the consolation of knowing that the Pope remained his friend, and did for him what lay in his
power.
His enemies were not satisfied with the sufferings he had already endured, and they banished him still further, to Pythius, at the very extremity of the Empire. He died on his way there
on September 14, 407.

S a n
J u a n
Chrysostomo conocido
por su elocuencia
como (boca de oro)
vino al mundo a unos
padres
cristianos,
hacia el año 344, en la
ciudad de Antioquía.
Su madre, a la
edad de 20, años era
un modelo de virtud. El
estudió retórica bajo
Libanius, un pagano, el
más famoso orador de
la época.
En 374, comenzó a llevar una vida de
anacoreta en las montañas cerca de Antioquía,
pero en el año 386 el mal estado de su salud le
obligó a regresar a Antioquía, donde fue
ordenado sacerdote. En 398, fue elevado a la
sede de Constantinopla y convirtiéndose en una
de las más grandes luces de la iglesia.
Pero tenía enemigos que eran influyentes, y
algunos eran eclesiásticos, siendo uno de ellos
Theophilus, patriarca de Alejandría, que se
arrepintió de esto antes de morir.
Su enemigo más poderoso, sin embargo, era
la Emperatriz Eudoxia, que estaba ofendida por
la libertad apostólica de sus discursos.
Varias acusaciones fueron traídas contra él
en un pseudo-Consejo y fue enviado al exilio.
Ahí como San Pablo a quien admiraba mucho
encontró paz y felicidad
Sus enemigos no estaban satisfechos con
los sufrimientos que había soportado ya, y lo
desterraron, a un lugar más lejano, a Pythius, al
extremo del mismo Imperio. Yendo a ese lugar
murió el 14 de septiembre del 407.

MINISTERIO HISPANO
Queridos Hermanos y Hermanas en Cristo,
“Se han hecho una imagen de un becerro de metal …
y le han ofrecido sacrificios …” Éxodo 32:8
Es fácil caer en la adoración a dioses falsos como el satanismo, el poder, el
placer, el dinero, las supersticiones, los horóscopos, la tabla de la Guija y
muchos otros. El Señor nos llama a salir de todo esto y abrazarlo, el único
Dios. Jesucristo viene para liberarnos de todas estas mentiras.
“Cristo Jesús vino al mundo a salvar a los pecadores” 1 Timoteo 1:15
En el Evangelio de hoy, vemos esto en el hijo pródigo. El hizo su dios
viviendo una vida disoluta. Pero la gracia de Dios lo llamó a recobrar su
dignidad.
“Padre, he pecado contra el cielo y contra ti …” Lucas 15:21
Nuestro Padre misericordioso nos recibe con amor, como recibió al hijo
pródigo, cuando reconocemos nuestros pecados.
“Corrió hacia él, y echándole lo brazos al cuello,
lo cubrió de besos …” Lucas 15:20
Que los Santos nos animen a superar toda tentación.
Monseñor Lorenzo Miranda
“El no dijo:
Tu no serás tentado,
Tu no estarás preocupado,
Tu no estarás afligido,
Pero si dijo:
Tu no serás derrotado …”

Mensaje del Diácono Carlos
Mis Hermanas y hermanos:
El Evangelio de hoy nos habla de la alegría
del retorno a Dios. El Señor nos da dos ejemplos: Uno es el del pastor que esta feliz cuando
encuentra una oveja extraviada. El otro es el da
una mujer que se pone a gritar de contenta porque encontró una moneda que había perdido, el
gozo de ese pastor y de esa mujer nos enseñan
como es la alegría de Dios cuando volvemos a
Él. Todo ser humano es para Dios algo de mucho valor que aprecia en sumo grado. El Salvador viene a buscar lo que estaba perdido, y
cuando nos encuentra proclama ante todos la
buena nueva de la salvación. Por eso para nosotros los católicos nuestra religión es de alegría y de retorno a nuestro Salvador.
He tenido preguntas acerca de los horarios
de las confesiones, después de la misa dominical por favor llévense a casa un Boletín, ahí encontraran información de eventos, cambios y
otras cosas que están sucediendo en nuestra
parroquia y que no se leen en los avisos al final
de las misas.
Bendiciones, Diácono Carlos
