September 6, 2015 Twenty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time
Dear Parishioners and Friends:
Jesus took the deaf man off by himself away
from the crowd. He put his finger into the man’s ears
and spitting, touched his tongue; then he looked up to
heaven and groaned… “Ephphatha!” – that is, “Be
opened!” Immediately the man’s ears were opened, his
speech impediment was removed, and he spoke plainly.
[Mark 7: 33-35]
Every now and then, when we gather to give our
praise and thanks to God, the day’s celebration is given
over to wonder at God’s goodness. Today is one of
those days. The scriptures tell of God’s gracious and
merciful love. Jesus goes out to the fringes of his
world, to foreign territory, to encounter a deaf-mute and
heal him. He communicates to him in a way that can
reach and touch him with the ultimate spiritual message: be opened! The man receives the message and is
healed.
Illness, sin, and evil close us down. They shrivel
us up so that we are numb and unable to be open to the
goodness of life. God’s grace opens us up to new life
and healing. Today we pray in gratitude for all that God
has done for us and we recognize those who have revealed God’s love to us in their loving service as we
ponder who to nominate for the Bishop Gartland Service award.
Question for the week: J esus wants to touch
us and open us up to the love of God in a new way. Are
you open to being touched and healed by the love of
God? Are you grateful for how God has touched you?
Your Pastor, Fr.
Bob
Loaves and Fishes Sunday!
Thank you, all who brought
canned goods for the hungry as
part of your Sunday offering.
Queridos Feligreses y Amigos:
Jesús se apartó de la muchedumbre con el hombre
sordo. Puso sus dedos en los oídos del hombre y escupiendo, tocó su lengua; luego miró hacia el cielo y dijo…
“Ephphatha!” – que quiere decir, “ ¡Ábranse!” Inmediatamente los oídos del hombre se abrieron, su impedimento
del lenguaje se removió y el comenzó a hablar abundantemente.
[Marcos 7: 33-35]
De vez en cuando, cuando nos reunimos para darle alabanza y gracias a Dios, el día de celebración se
vuelve una admiración de las bondades de Dios. Hoy es
uno de esos días. La escritura nos habla de la gracia y del
amor misericordioso de Dios. Jesús se sale de los márgenes de su mundo, a territorio extranjero, para encontrar a
este sordo-mudo y curarlo. Él le comunica en una manera
que puede acercarse y tocarlo con el más grande mensaje
espiritual: ¡ábranse! El hombre recibe el mensaje y es curado.
Enfermedad, pecado y el mal nos rodean. Ellos
nos envuelven para que estemos cerrados y nos sea imposible abrirnos a la bondad de la vida. La gracia de Dios
nos abre a una nueva vida y sanación. Hoy pedimos en
gratitud por todo lo que Dios ha hecho por nosotros y reconocemos a aquellos que nos han revelado el amor de
Dios en su amoroso servicio mientras pensamos a quien
nominar para el premio al Servicio del Obispo Gartland.
Pregunta de la semana: Jesús quiere tocarnos y
abrirnos al amor de Dios en nuevas maneras. ¿Estas
abierto a dejarte tocar y sanar por el amor de Dios?
¿Estas agradecido por las maneras en que Dios te ha tocado?
Su Pastor, P.
Bob
Domingo de Panes y Peces! Gracias, a todos los que trajeron latas
para los hambrientos como parte
de su ofrenda dominical.
The Anointing of the Sick will be available
after each Mass for those who wish to be
prayed over. Place your hands on the person in front of you who is being anointed
and pray for them first, that God will give
them the healing that they need to be
open again to the fullness of life.
La Unción de los Enfermos estará disponible después de cada Misa para aquellos que
deseen que recemos por ellos. Ponga sus
manos en la persona enfrente de usted que
está siendo ungida y rece por ellos primero,
que Dios les de la sanación que ellos necesitan para abrirse a una vida plena.

El Ministerio Hispano tuvo un maravilloso retiro la semana pasada con el P. Victor Canela, un Misionario
Trinitario de Bainbridge, GA. Su humor y sus historias de todos los días nos hicieron estar conscientes
de en qué manera única somos llamados y que afortunados somos. Su habilidad de hablarle al corazón como un hijo de México nos hizo a muchos de nosotros sentir que podíamos hablar fácilmente y
confortablemente. Hubo un rico intercambio y muchos corazones contentos. ¡Un nuevo comienzo para
nuestra comunidad!

Online Giving: St Joseph’s is testing Online Giving—a convenient and safe way to make a one-time or recurring donation in supporting the parish. Getting started is easy—just visit our website, www.stjosephwaycross.com
and click our Online Giving link. When you participate, your offering will be securely transferred directly into the parish
bank account. And you won’t have to remember to write a check or stop by the ATM before mass! For your convenience donations can be made from your checking account, debit card, or credit card. As is typical for all electronic
transactions, the church pays a small processing fee for each transaction. These administrative fees
are lower for ACH/check transactions and slightly higher for credit card transactions so please consider using your
checking account to make your donation. We will be evaluating online giving for the next 8 weeks to see if it is something our parishioners would like to continue to use. After the evaluation period, the parish will have to pay a $20 monthly
support and security fee to E-Catholic. If there isn’t sufficient demand, we may discontinue the service. If you’re interested, please make an electronic donation and let us know what you think! Thanks! [Your webmaster, Jason Strickland]
