The mission of our community is rooted in Jesus the Christ.
This mission is to hear, respond to and proclaim the
Through the Sunday Eucharist we are called to ongoing
conversion and personal spiritual formation. As a community, we
are challenged to provide mutual support for a Catholic Christian
lifestyle and are empowered to use our gifts to minister to the
needs of others. We commit ourselves to the beatitudes, to the
spiritual and corporal works of mercy, and to minister to the
larger communities in which we live and work. We respect the
dignity of every person, at all ages and stages of life. We hand
on our Catholic heritage through catechesis, worship, service
and witness.
In carrying out this mission we further the kingdom of God in
our midst.
La misión de nuestra comunidad tiene su raíz en Jesucristo.
Esta misión es escuchar, responder y proclamar la palabra de
Dios que se encuentra en las escrituras Hebreas y Cristianas.
Por la Eucaristía del Domingo, estamos llamados a una
conversión continua y a una formación espiritual personal.
Como una comunidad, tenemos el reto de proporcionar apoyo
mutuo para un estilo de vida Cristiana Católica y tenemos las
facultades para utilizar nuestros dones en las necesidades de
los demás. Nos comprometemos a vivir las Bienaventuranzas,
las obras de misericordia corporales y espirituales y a servir a las
comunidades más grandes en las que vivimos y trabajamos.
Respetamos la dignidad de cada persona, en todas las edades y
etapas de la vida. Entregamos nuestra herencia Católica a través
de catequesis, adoración al culto divino, servicio y testimonio.
Viviendo esta misión, nosotros vivimos el Reino de Dios en la
tierra.

THIRTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
In today’s Gospel we see how Jesus, on his way to Jerusalem, sent
“a messenger on ahead of Him.” To be the messengers of God, we
must know well what it is God wants to say and do through us, as he
sends us out to bring his love to others.
In the past month, you were the “messengers of God” in
bringing hope to the poor. Your gifts enabled the St. Lawrence
Conference to assist 24 families, provided $635.00 in emergency
rent and $293.13 in emergency utility bills and referrals to other
support agencies. Many thanks for your dedication and commitment our brothers and sister who need our support.
CONFERENCE MEETING DATES
The Conference will hold the next Bundle Sunday on July 17, 2016
from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm in front of St. Lawrence Hall. (look for the
SVdP Truck) Your donations of new or gently used household
items, clothing, kitchen utensils, toys, linens and other useable goods
are welcome. A list of acceptable and non-acceptable items will be
posted on the parish web page or call Jim Floyd at 916.804.1731 if
you have question. Thank you St. Lawrence for your generous donations.
The St. Lawrence Conference of St. Vincent de Paul is seeking
individuals who want to help people in need. If you can spare a few
hours to share your time and talents doing the caring work of Jesus,

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
An old and still vital treasure in our tradition is a document called the
"Apostolic Traditions," giving us a snapshot of church life in third-century
Rome. Its author, Hippolytus, describes the liturgical life of the church
and records the actual texts of the prayers. The way he explained the
various "orders" of the church was the basis for a major reform of the
rites of ordination by Pope Pius XII in 1947, and later for the Second
Vatican Council. Hippolytus tells us that a bishop had to be elected by
the entire people, and that ordination had to take place on a Sunday in
the presence of the people, the presbyters, and neighboring bishops.
The bishop-candidate is ordained by the other bishops, who impose their
hands on his head while everyone else keeps a profound silence, awaiting
the outpouring of the Spirit. There is a prayer of blessing said by one of
them, on behalf of all, asking for the Spirit and describing his ministry.
Later centuries layered new features on top of this liturgy, including the
requirement for three bishop consecrators. Today, whenever a new bishop
is announced (election by the people is no more), a kind of genealogy is
provided, tracing his pedigree through the consecrating bishops down
through the centuries to Peter and the first body of believers. Every
bishop today can trace his office through his consecrators back to the
beginning in a tradition called "apostolic succession."

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
El último sábado de junio o el primero de julio en un ayuntamiento de
Valcidacos, España, se pone en escena el Miserere escrito por Gustavo
Adolfo Bécquer (1836-1870). Esta obra relata como un músico llega de
noche a la Abadía de Fetero pidiendo posada. Los hermanos del monasterio
lo invitaron a pasar la noche. Allí él les contó su vida pecaminosa y su
deseo de encontrar un Miserere (Salmo 51) digno de expiar sus pecados
ante Dios. Le contaron del Miserere del Monte que cantaban durante la
noche los monjes difuntos de un Monasterio que había sido destruido
siglos atrás. El músico afanado por encontrar su Miserere, corrió a la
montaña donde escuchó aquel lamentoso y bello canto. Al regresar a la
Abadía intentó escribir la música de aquel Miserere, pero lo único que
logro fue volverse loco.
Aquel pobre hombre murió sin reconocer que cada quien debe entonar
a su manera su propio y pobre Miserere mei (piedad de mi). Dios no nos
perdona por la belleza o la fuerza de nuestra confesión, sino por su
amor y su misericordia.

Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,
Today we learn through readings of the requirement of true
discipleship. The message is clear, a true disciple must be willing to
undergo what may seem like a stern call, be ready to give up the
“flesh” that represents the things of this world—we are born in the
flesh. Yet, as true disciples we must live by the spirit of our Lord,
Jesus. This will require everything of us as we must be willing to take
up the action of wholehearted obedience. We cannot hesitate or make
excuses for not taking up the mantle of a true disciple of Christ. Jesus,
we learn, was resolute in his purpose and his mission. Jesus does not
look back, makes no excuses or wavers from his love and obedience
to the Father. It is this type of discipleship that we are being asked to
undertake. Christ has set us free so that we do not have to submit to
the yoke of slavery, namely sin. He asks us to follow his spiritual law,
our commandment to serve one another through love, “you shall love
your neighbor as yourself”. . . this is the whole law fulfilled. The law of
Christ does not say “love this type of person or only those like you,” it
means that we cannot limit our love as our Savior did not limit his love,
he freely loved everyone, including his love of forgiveness of those who
put him to death. This may seem hard or harsh but as Disciples of
Christ we must make a radical commitment to Christ—we are on a
journey that requires a total commitment to our Lord. . . we cannot
serve two masters, it is either the “flesh of the world or Christ.” Which
will you chose?
My fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, this is the last “Pastor’s
Corner.” I begin my assignment next week at Holy Family parish. I
too must answer the call to discipleship and I am under the same
commandment of Christ to accept his call to “follow him.” This “call”
is full of blessings, expectations and a firm commitment to fulfill the
mission I must undertake as a servant of Christ. I will cherish the time
I have spent at St. Lawrence, the friendships and yes, the uncomfortable
challenges—these are all part of the journey of growth and faith. May
the Lord bless you and protect you as your journey of faith continues.

TIL WE MEET AGAIN FATHER ENRIQUE!
¡HASTA SIEMPRE PADRE ENRIQUE!

Queridos hermanos y hermanas en Cristo,
Hoy aprendemos a través de las lecturas los requisitos para ser
un verdadero discípulo. El mensaje es claro, el verdadero discípulo
debe de estar dispuesto para su llamado, estar listo para morir a si
mismo y a lo que representa las cosas de este mundo–hemos nacido en
la carne. Aun así, como verdaderos discípulos debemos de vivir en
el espíritu de nuestro Señor, Jesucristo. Esto requiere todo de nosotros,
ya que debemos ser completamente obedientes. No podemos
dudar, ni tener excusas para no ser discípulo de Cristo. Jesucristo,
como sabemos, estaba resuelto a su propósito y a su misión.
Jesús no miro hacia atrás, no tuvo excusas, ni vacilo en su amor y
obediencia al Padre. Es este tipo de discipulado el que se nos pide que
tengamos. Cristo nos ha hecho libres para que no tuviéramos que estar
sometidos bajo el yugo de la esclavitud, o sea el pecado. El nos pide que
sigamos su ley espiritual, nuestro mandamiento de servir unos a
otros a través del amor, “debemos de amar a nuestros hermanos
como a nosotros mismos”...en esto se cumple toda la ley. La ley de
Cristo no dice que amemos a este tipo de persona o solo aquellos
que son como nosotros, esto significa que no podemos limitar nuestro
amor como nuestro Salvador no limito su amor, el lo dio libremente a
todos, incluyendo su perdón amoroso a quienes le dieron muerte.
Esto parece muy difícil, pero como discípulos de Cristo debemos
de hacer un compromiso radical a Cristo–porque estamos en este
caminar que requiere una entrega total a nuestro Señor…no podemos
servir a dos amos, o es el mundo y la carne o es Cristo. ¿Cual escoges?
Hermanos y hermanas en Cristo, esta será la última columna del
Pastor. Comienzo mi nuevo nombramiento la próxima semana en La
Sagrada Familia. Yo también debo de contestar a la llamada de mi
discipulado y estoy bajo el mismo compromiso de aceptar su llamado
de “seguirlo”. Este llamado está lleno de bendiciones, expectativas
y una firma resolución de llevar a cabo la misión como siervo de
Cristo. Me regocijo en el tiempo que pase en San Lorenzo, las
amistades y si, los retos –todo esto es parte del caminar de nuestro
crecimiento y fe. Que el Señor los bendiga y los proteja al continuar
su camino de fe.
Padre Enrique

JUBILEE YEAR OF MERCY
AÑO JUBILAR DE LA MISERICORDIA
Yet again in Ordinary Time, Jesus seems to
demand extraordinary commitment. A would-be
disciple enthusiastically volunteers to follow
Jesus "wherever" (Luke 9:57). Jesus replies that
"wherever" means "nowhere to rest his head"
(9:58). To other candidates, Jesus brusquely
denies reasonable requests to fulfill family obligations
(9:59, 61), declaring that discipleship demands
total commitment--now! But Jesus also demands
that we not judge how others respond. When
James and John volunteered to "call down fire
from heaven" (9:54) to destroy an unwelcoming
town, Jesus "turned and rebuked them" (9:55). All
violence of any kind is completely unacceptable
among Jesus' disciples, a lesson this Jubilee Year
of Mercy is teaching the Christian community
once again. Paul's challenge to the Galatians and us
reinforces Jesus' decisive command to James and
John that they express their commitment to him
through compassion for others. We must abandon
the violence of "biting and devouring one another"
(Galatians 5:15), choosing instead to "serve one
another through love" (5:13).
En este, un domingo más del Tiempo Ordinario,
parece que Jesús exige un compromiso
extraordinario. Un aspirante entusiasmado a
ser discípulo se ofrece de voluntario para
seguir a Jesús "a donde sea" (Lucas 9:57).
Jesús le contesta que "a donde sea" significa "no
tener donde recostar la cabeza" (9:58). A otros
aspirantes, Jesús bruscamente niega sus
peticiones para seguirlo pues les antepone
razonablemente sus responsabilidades y
obligaciones familiares (9:59, 61), expresando
que ahora ser discípulo exige compromiso
completo. Pero Jesús también exige que no
juzguemos cómo responden otras personas.
Cuando Santiago y Juan se ofrecen para "hacer
caer fuego del cielo" (9:54) para destruir una
ciudad que no los recibió, Jesús "los reprende"
(9:55). Cualquier tipo de violencia es completamente inaceptable entre los discípulos de
Jesús, una lección este Año Jubilar de la
Misericordia es enseñar una vez más a la
comunidad cristiana. El desafío de Pablo a los
gálatas y a nosotros refuerza el mandamiento
decisivo de Jesús a Santiago y Juan que ellos
expresaran su compromiso hacia los demás
con compasión. Debemos dejar de ser violentos
y dejar "comernos y devorarnos unos a otros"
(Gálatas 5:15), eligiendo en su lugar "servir uno
al otro por medio del amor" (5:13).
