26th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Spiritual teachers tend to repeat themselves, and to
repeat other teachers. Maybe there really aren’t that
many different truths to tell. Just a lot of slow, sleepy
human beings—like us—who need to hear the basics
over and over. Consider today’s readings.
People complain that God isn’t “fair,” and Ezekiel
answers that God is more than fair. People choose their
own fates, and people can change. Even evildoers can
turn, do right, and live. “Actions speak louder than
words.” A fresh new insight? Hardly.
Paul tells the Philippians he would truly be
encouraged if those who claimed to be believers would,
in fact, look to others’ interests and not their own. “The
proof of the pudding is in the eating.” A novel idea? I
don’t think so.
In Jesus’ story of the farmer and his sons, everyone
knows the one who said he wouldn’t work—but did—is
way ahead of the one who said he would work, but
“Talk is cheap.” Heard that before?

2• CHRIST, THE GOOD SHEPHERD PARISH, CAMPBELL, OHIO
As we enjoy the Spaghetti this weekend, there a couple
of things to mark on our calendars.
This Wednesday evening is an Evangelization
Committee meeting. Right now, there are only a couple
of people officially on the Committee. I think some
people are staying away because they assume what the
committee is about. I assure you that I have some ideas
about what it is, but I need you there to hear about them.
We will meet at 6:30pm at St. Lucy, because on
Wednesday we make the switch there for Masses.
Also, we will celebrate with Fr. Tobin on Saturday,
October 11. He is celebrating 50 years of Ordination (in
December), and he will celebrate Mass for us at the 4pm
Mass on the 11th. Of course, a reception will follow the
Mass. I hope you can come!
And, then, on Sunday, October 19th there is “Fall Fest”
at Roosevelt Park. The Campbell Pride Project people
asked if we would set up a food booth for the event. So,
come and support the parish and the City from 12-7pm.
The food will be wonderful!
These are the last days to complete the Diocesan Survey.
Come to the office if you need any help.
Now, for the past couple of weeks, I have been offering
some explanations about the Rite of Communion. This
week, I want to make a comment about the response
when receiving Communion. When we approach the
Altar to receive Communion the minister says: “The
Body of Christ,” or “The Blood of Christ.” And, the
response to this proclamation is: “Amen.” There are a
number of other responses that I hear. For example: “I
believe.” “Thank you.” Or, a simple nod and no words
at all. In the end, “Amen” is a Hebrew word that has
been continuously used in our Catholic tradition, like
“Alleluia!” Instead of translating it, we use “Amen”
because it can be used universally no matter what
language Mass is celebrated in. Because it takes us
immediately to our Jewish roots and that religious
context in which Jesus celebrated the First Eucharist.
Because it is a word that has many meanings: “I
believe.” “May it be so.” “It is.” And, no translation can
capture all of its meanings. And, of course, silence or
“Thank you” do not capture any of its meanings. We
have such a profound and rich word in “Amen.” Let it
be a clear expression of our faith in Jesus present in the
God bless you,
Mientras disfrutamos de los espaguetis este fin de
semana, hay un par de cosas para marcar en nuestros
calendarios. Este miércoles por la noche se reunirá el
Comité de Evangelización, hay sólo un par de personas
oficialmente en el Comité. Creo que algunas personas no
participan porque asumen de lo que se trata el Comité.
Les aseguro que tengo algunas ideas sobre lo que es, pero
los necesito allí para escuchar de ustedes. Nos reuniremos
a las 6:30pm en St. Lucy, ya que el miércoles las misas
rotan a ese edificio.
Además, celebraremos con el Padre Tobin su 50 años de
Ordenación el Sabado, 11 de Octubre con misa primero a
las 4pm y luego una recepción en el Palermo Center.
Espero que puedan venir!
Y, el domingo, 19 de Octubre es el “Festival de Otoño”
en el Parque Roosevelt. La gente del “Proyecto Orgullo
de Campbell” nos pidio que pusieramos una cazeta de
comida para el evento. Así que ven y apoya la parroquia y
la Cuidad de 12-7pm. La comida estara maravillosa!
Este es el último día para completar el cuestionario
Diocesano. Vengan a la oficina si necesitan alguna ayuda.
Por las últimas par de semanas, he estado ofreciendo
algunas explicaciones acerca de el Rito de la Comunión.
Esta semana, quiero hacer un comentario acerca de la
respuesta cuando recibimos la Comunión. Cuando nos
acercamos al altar a recibir la Comunión el ministro dice:
“El Cuerpo de Cristo” o “La Sangre de Cristo”. La
respuesta a esta proclamación es “Amén”. Sin embargo,
hay una cierta cantidad de respuestas que escucho que no
son adecuadas, por ejemplo: “Yo creo”. “Gracias”. O un
simple gesto con la cabeza y no palabras. Al final,
“Amén” es una palabra hebrea que ha sido ulitizada en
nuestra tradición Católica, como “Aleluya”. En vez de
traducirla, usamos “Amén” porque puede ser utilizada
universalmente sin importar que idioma se este
celebrando la misa. Porque nos lleva inmediatamente a
nuestras raíces judías y ese contexto religioso en que
Jesús celebró la Primera Eucaristía. Porque es una palabra
que tiene mucho significado. Y, por supuesto, el
“silencio” o “gracias” no captura algunos de sus
significados. “Amén” es una palabra tan profunda y rica.
Que sea una expresión clara de nuestra fe en Jesús,
presente en la Eucaristía.
Que Dios te bendiga,

STEWARDSHIP OF TREASURE
St. Paul reminds us to do nothing out of selfishness or
vainglory, but rather to be humble - regarding others needs
as greater. Among the many aspects of stewardship is the
stewardship of our motives. Why do we do what we do? If
it is for praise and glory, God will not be impressed. If it is
truly for the needs and well being of others, God will truly
bless us for all our efforts one in his name.

Pastoral Council Meeting – September 16, 2014
Fr. Shawn opened with prayer.
New Council lists were approved.
Nominations for Chairman were Carmel Gerlick, Chuck Zamary and Donna Guerrieri. Donna was called
and accepted. Aida Pacheco accepted the Co-Chair position.
Finance report given by Ismael Caraballo who said in the last two months we took in $99,209 in
donations but had to pay bills totaling $110,839 leaving a deficit of $11,630. Fr. Leo Dobosiewicz gifted us
a gift of $30,000 that was used help pay the $42,000 payment towards the debt owed to the diocese. After
that payment we still owe the diocese $94,000.00 for assessments.
The Liturgy Committee reported on the Assumption Mass and reception held at St. Lucy.
Mary, from the Evangelization committee went to the 1st Friday club where Fr. Shori was the speaker.
He said all parishes are facing the same challenges. Evangelization starts with each of us as a good
example with our own lives.
St. Rose Cultural Society is having their Spanish Heritage celebration at St. Joseph Hall September 21.
St. John Cultural Society had their Stuffed Cabbage Dinner which was successful. They raised $4,168
and are planning a pizza party for the youth that helped them. They are making plans to paint all their
doors in their church and paint the hall.
St. Lucy Cultural Society had their St. Anthony celebration, Cavatelli Dinner and Assumption Mass
and reception. Their Spaghetti dinner is set for 9/28 from 12-4.
St. Joseph Society will have their annual Cookie Walk. They will be baking as well as asking for
donations of cookies since they run out of cookies within the first 1-2 hours.
Fr. Shawn announced the exhibit at the Steel Museum featuring artifacts from our parish. It is titled
Fr. Shawn also said one of our challenges is to grow in unity. He has scheduled our socials for
once a month this year at two Masses. So each Mass will have a social every other month. Those hosting
the socials are welcome to display what their groups are all about.
On October 11 we will celebrate Fr. Tobin’s 50th anniversary at the 4:00 Mass with a reception to
follow at the Palermo Center. There will be reservation slips in the bulletin. The reservations will be given
to the office. The Cultural Societies will handle the reception.
There is also a Campbell October fest at Roosevelt Park on Oct. 19th from 12-7. Christ, the Good
Shepherd has been asked to have a booth of ethnic foods. Fr. has assigned people to take care of the foods
from each church.
Everyone is encouraged to fill out the Diocesan Survey. This is important so the Diocese can get an
idea of where to focus in the future. In the next 5 years there will be 40 of 80 priests retiring.
The finance committee has recommended having one Worship site and using the other two buildings as
chapels for funerals etc. We have been losing parishioners due to the rotation of Masses. It is understood
that no matter what decision is made we will lose some parishioners but we are losing them now. Fr.
Shawn feels he has enough information at hand to decide what needs done. The Parish Council has agreed
that a decision needs to be made.
