Pastor’s Reflection
rothers and Sisters, when Jesus
appointed seventy of his disciples to go on
a mission, he gave them a vision of a vast
field that is ready to be harvested for the
kingdom of God. Jesus frequently used the
image of a harvest to convey the coming of
God's reign on earth. The harvest is the
completion of much labor and growth,
beginning with the sowing of seeds, then
growth to maturity, and finally the
harvest. In the same way the word of God
is sown in the hearts of each one of us who
hear his word, accept it with trust and
obedience, and then share the abundant
fruit of God's word to others. The harvest
Jesus had in mind was not only the
gathering in of the people of Israel, but all
the peoples of the world. John the
Evangelist tells us "God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son, that
whoever believes in him shall not perish
but have eternal life."
What does Jesus mean when he says
his disciples must be "lambs in the midst
of wolves"
? This certainly refers to the
second coming of the Lord Jesus when all
will be united under the Lordship of Jesus
I was born in El
September 5,
1959. I am the
oldest of four,
one sister and
two brothers; one
of my brothers is
a diocesan priest
in El Salvador.
My father is still
alive and my
mother passed to
the house of the
Father five years
ago. I moved to the United States when I was
seventeen years old, ten years later I met the
Missionaries of the Holy Spirit in Los Angeles, CA,
where I lived since I moved to the States.
I joined the Congregation of the Missionaries
of the Holy Spirit on July 3, 1988, that was the day
I started a new adventure in my life. After three
months of postulancy, I entered the novitiate, a
formation stage of two years. In the novitiate I
wanted to confirm God’s calling to consecrate my
life in the Congregation of the Missionaries of the
after he has put down his enemies and
established the reign of God over the
heavens and the earth. In the meantime, the
disciples must expect opposition and
persecution from those who would oppose
the Gospel. Jesus came to lay down his life
for us, as our sacrificial lamb, to be
expiation for our sins and the sins of the
world. We, in turn, must be willing to offer
our lives with gratitude and service for our
Savior Jesus Christ.
What is the meaning of Jesus
appointing seventy disciples to the
ministry of the word? Seventy was a
significant number in biblical times. Moses
chose seventy elders to help him in the
task of leading the people through the
wilderness. The Jewish Sanhedrin, the
governing council for the nation of Israel,
was composed of seventy members. In
Jesus' times seventy was held to be the
number of nations throughout the world.
Jesus commissioned the seventy to speak
in his name and to act with his power. He
gave his disciples instructions for how they
were to carry out their ministry. They must
go and serve as people without deceit, full
of charity and peace. They must give their
Holy Spirit. I made my first religious profession on
August 11, 1990, a further step to reaffirm my
vocation. In my profession I made my first
commitment to Jesus to live poor, obedient and
chaste. In September of the same year, I began
the stage of philosophy, this stage was for 4 years,
which opened new horizons in my life and
strengthened my desire to belong to God.
In 1995 I started the stage of
‘Efosa’ (internship), which was to live in a Parish
community for one year, I was sent to Saint
Martha Parish in Huntington Park. I began to live
what they taught me in the novitiate and
philosophy on the lifestyle of the Missionaries of
the Holy Spirit, this was a very cheerful dynamic
stage; working in parish ministry also helped me to
reaffirm my priestly vocation.
Finally, the last stage of basic formation was
the theological studies, which began in September
1996 at St. John Seminary in Camarillo California,
a time of consolidation in my life in all areas. After
finishing my theological training I was ordained a
priest on August 12, 2000.
full attention to the proclamation of God's
kingdom. They must travel with only what
was essential, in order to concentrate on
the task of speaking the word of the God.
They must do their work, freely to others,
without expecting any payment.
Jesus wants his disciples to be
dependent on him and not on themselves.
Jesus makes it clear that the true
source of our joy is God, and God alone.
Jesus assures his disciples that he has all
power over evil, including the power of
Satan and the evil spirits. In fact, that is
why Jesus came into the world: to
overthrow the evil one. We, as disciples of
Jesus, have been given spiritual authority
and power for overcoming the works of
darkness and evil. God gives us his lifegiving word that we may have abundant
life in him. Jesus wills to work in each of
us for his glory. God shares his word with
us and he commands us to speak it
confidently and plainly to others. Brothers
and Sisters, are we ready to witness the
truth and joy of the Gospel by word and
example to those around us?

faith and trust in God, and I assure you that this is
not different in any way. I come to Saint Elizabeth
Ann Seton’s community with great enthusiasm,
faith, and trust that God wants me here for a
reason, and that He will guide me in the process. I
rely on your prayers and support in order for me to
do the will of God at its best in this community.

Padre Armando Hernández, MSpS.
I’m a Missionary of the Holy Spirit. On June 10th 2001, I
started my Postulancy Stage and later on January the 3rd, 2004 I
Professed my Religious Vows. I remember that on the day I
received My First Communion I received the Call to serve in
the Church as a Priest. I was born in Lerdo, Durango,
Mexico, on May 7. My Parents are Francisca and Leoncio (my
Dad died 15 years ago). I have two sisters, Angelica and
Norma. When I was 8 years old I studied drama and singing in
Mexico. Later I was a High School Drama teacher in Mexico.
I like to paint and enjoy to play guitar. I concluded my studies
as an Accountant. Later, I started my carrier
studying Graphic design at Autonomous

Later, I felt a strong desire to serve God and
His Church. In May 2009 I concluded my
College studies at Mount Angel Seminary and

Parish. I studied Theology at the University of
Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana and
Mount Angel Seminary in OR.
On September 19th, 2015, I was ordained a
Priest here at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Bothell,
WA. I love to serve people and to share with
them what I learned from Jesus: to be
compassionate and to have a spirit of solidarity and mercy with
all. I hope that my experience as a Priest here in this parish can
be helpful for you and your family members. Also I want to
thank you for your prayers, especially for vocations to the
religious life and to the Priesthood. May God Bless you.
Soy Misionero del Espíritu Santo. El 10 de Junio del 2001

Many of you know me. I came as a brother to this parish
of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in 2007. A year later I was
ordained deacon, and then four months later I was ordained a
priest in my hometown, Tarandacuao, Gto. Being in this
parish for five years was a beautiful and meaningful
experience, sharing my faith with you in
moments of joy and sorrow.
In 2012 I was assigned Associate Pastor at St.
Matthew’s parish in Hillsboro, Oregon, where I
served that community for three years. Last
year, I was assigned Vocation Director for our
Province and lived in Long Beach, California.
Now I am coming back home to St. Elizabeth
Ann Seton. I feel very happy to come back to
the family that saw me grow as brother, deacon,
and priest. I am coming back with a mission, the mission that
the Holy Spirit is giving to all Missionaries of the Holy
Spirit: to promote in the parish the Spirituality of the Cross
and the vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Please,
pray for us, and thank you for your love and support. Many
blessings to all of you.

deben viajar sólo con lo esencial, con el fin
de concentrarse en la tarea de transmitir la
palabra de Dios. Ellos deben hacer su
trabajo, gratuitamente para los demás, sin
esperar pago. Jesús quiere que sus
discípulos se apoyen en Él y no en sí

fuente de nuestra alegría es Dios, y sólo
Dios. Jesús asegura a sus discípulos que él

Jesus has done it All
—————Fr. Mario Rodriguez, MSpS—————
This is the statement that flows and moves from the bottom of my heart: “Jesus has done it all.” Fr. Felix used this
expression as the title for one of his letters in which he talked about the history of the Congregation of the Missionaries of the
Holy Spirit. Fr. Felix could clearly see the action of God in our history; Jesus had helped us and given us the necessary graces
for the Congregation to exist and develop. Amidst a sea of difficulties, the Congregation had been able to move forward,
thanks to Jesus’ Divine intervention.
My life and your life are also Divine interventions. We’ve had many successes and many happy times in our lives. We
have grown and reached places we couldn’t imagine. We have avoided unexpected situations and dangers. We’ve had many
moments of triumph and success. We have become great. And Jesus has been constantly present in our lives, and has been
acting in our lives. And it is Jesus Himself who has taken us to these heights, and we know it!
But now there can be a new beginning in our spiritual lives. This can be the moment to acknowledge that JESUS HAS
DONE IT ALL. That in him we acknowledge the giver of all graces. Jesus is the source and goal of our whole life. Now, as
Catholics, it is our turn to acknowledge that JESUS HAS DONE IT ALL in our lives, and we have just been unprofitable
servants (Lk 17:10) who have just been led by Him. Jesus has called us to be co-sharers in His salvific mission and we have
just allowed ourselves to be led by the Holy Spirit. Jesus has done it all in our parish, in our families and our personal life. I
invite you to start looking at your life from the point of view of
Jesus’ actions, and not from the perspective of your own
In the end, all we need to say to the Lord is: “Increase our
faith.” (Lk 17:5) so we can discover that YOU have done it all in
our lives.
Jesus lo ha hecho Todo
Esta es la frase que ha estado brotando y moviéndose en el
fondo de mi corazón: “Jesús lo ha hecho todo”. Esa es la frase que
el P. Félix utilizaba para titular una de sus cartas donde nos
expresaba la historia de la congregación de Misioneros del Espíritu
Santo. El P. Félix descubría el actuar claro de Dios en nuestra historia; Jesús había ayudado y dado las gracias necesarias para
que la Congregación existiera y se desarrollara. En medio de todas las dificultades tenidas se había salido adelante, gracias a la
intervención divina de Jesús.
Mi vida y tu vida son también intervenciones divinas. Hemos tenido muchos éxitos y muchos momentos felices en
nuestras vidas. Hemos crecido y llegado a lugares que no imaginábamos. Nos hemos vistos librados de situaciones y peligros
inesperados. Hemos tenido muchos momentos de éxito y de triunfo. Hemos llegado a ser grandes. Y Jesús ha estado muy
presente en nuestras vidas y Él ha estado actuando en ellas. Y Jesús es quien nos ha impulsado y llevado a esas alturas ¡Y lo
Pero ahora en nuestra vida puede iniciar un nuevo momento en nuestra vida espiritual. Puede ser el tiempo de reconocer
que JESUS LO HA HECHO TODO. Que en Él reconocemos al dador de todas las gracias. Jesús es la fuente y la meta de toda
nuestra existencia. Ahora como católicos nos toca empezar a reconocer que JESUS LO HA HECHO TODO en nuestras vidas
y que nosotros sólo hemos sido siervos inútiles (Lc 17, 10.) que se han dejado guiar por ÉL. Jesús nos ha llamado a ser
copartícipes de su misión salvadora y nosotros sólo nos hemos dejado llevar por su Espíritu. Jesús lo ha hecho todo en nuestra
parroquia, en nuestras familias y en nuestra vida personal. Te invito a que empieces a ver tu vida desde la actuación de Jesús y
no desde tus propios logros.
Al final lo que tenemos que decirle al Señor es: “Auméntanos la fe” (Lc 17, 5) para poder descubrir que TÚ eres
quien ha hecho todo en nuestra vida.

Vocation Awareness
“Lifestyles” and “Prayer Styles” of sisters and brothers in “community” are described
by the National Coalition for Church Vocations as follows:
Personal choice within the specific spirit and custom of a community encourages a
great deal of creative, thoughtful and prayerful decision-making about how sisters and
brothers live and grow holy. Again, community is a frame of reference. Some people find
living in a traditional convent or a very large community house best suited to them and to
their current ministry or apostolate. Others are drawn to small-group living, perhaps in a
small home or apartment. For still others, the decision must be to live alone — and yet to
be very community-oriented during this interim. Basically, it’s not really where you live,
but why and how you do it.
That’s true about praying, too. Everybody does it, but there are many different ways in
which we can relate to God. The community helps here, too. Sisters and brothers pray —
frequently within very ancient traditions of prayer, constantly finding new ways of keeping
in close touch with God. Individually, they have their special ways of being with God,
listening to Him and responding to His love.
The variety of lifestyles and prayer forms evident in the so called “active” communities
is also apparent in contemplative groups of religious. Men and women attracted to
contemplative life learn from the great prayers of the past even as they explore new forms
of contemplative prayer and contemplative living. This vocation is a particularly precious
gift to contemporary society and culture. Among some contemplatives there is renewed
interest in “hermitages.” Through this kind of life some are finding, in greater isolation and
solitude, an even more intense form of spiritual life.

HAPPENING Here and elsewhere
Volunteers needed for Mother Seton Ministries
We are a group of ladies that meet @ 8:00 Friday mornings to
straighten pews and when necessary put inserts in the bulletins.
We usually finish the pews by 9:00 am and therefore are able to
attend the Mass. If we have bulletins to stuff, we do it
immediately following the Mass and usually finish by 10:30.
On occasion we could use a substitute when one of us is
unavailable for whatever reason.
If you would be interested in helping on a regular basis or as an
occasional volunteer please contact the office; Thank you.

on ahead of Him.” (Luke 9:52) 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 first half of June, you were
the “messenger of God” in bringing hope to the poor. Your
gifts enabled the Society of St. Vincent de Paul to assist ten
families with food, with utility and rent bills, and with other
