MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of our community is rooted in Jesus the Christ.
This mission is to hear, respond to and proclaim the word of
God as found in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures.
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 our
selves 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.

GOD IS A LOVING PARENT
DIOS ES UN PADRE AMOROSO
Some scripture passages require a good deal of
study before they yield their inner meaning. Not so with
today’s Gospel, a continuation of the Sermon on the
Mount. Here we have Jesus’ well-known sayings about
God’s care for us. “No one can serve two masters” and
“Look at the birds in the sky” have become idioms in our
culture. Perhaps they have become too familiar. Jesus’
point is a simple one—if we keep our hearts set on the
important things, God will take care of the rest. His use
of simple images from nature—birds, flowers, grass—
would have resonated just as deeply with his listeners
then as they do today.
The brief passage from Isaiah, situated as it is in a longer
section on the restoration of Zion, uses a wonderful feminine
image to portray God’s care for us. Even more than a mother’s
care for her own child is God’s attentiveness to our needs. Juxtaposed with the Gospel reading, an image of God as doting
parent surfaces. No wonder St. Paul in his letter to the
Corinthians is more confident in the judgment of the Lord than
in any human assessment! For those whose hearts are set on
God’s priorities, the time of judgment can bring nothing but
good.

Algunas partes de las Escrituras requieren de conocer
ciertos antecedentes históricos, prácticas culturales, etc.,
para entender su mensaje. Pero eso no pasa con el texto
del Evangelio de hoy, una continuación del Sermón de la
Montaña. Aquí tenemos las frases de Jesús diciendo
cómo Dios cuida de nosotros. Por ejemplo, las frases:
“Nadie puede servir a dos amos” y “Miren las aves del
cielo” se usan tan frecuente en nuestra cultura. Quizá son
tan populares. Jesús enfatiza una cosa tan sencilla, si
ponemos nuestro corazón en cosas importantes, Dios
proveerá el resto. La forma cómo Jesús relaciona cosas de
la naturaleza, pájaros, flores, hierba, hicieron eco en los
oídos de quienes lo escucharon entonces y de quienes hoy lo
escuchan.
El pasaje breve de Isaías, que está tomado de un texto más
amplío que trata de la restauración de Sión, utiliza una imagen
femenina para mostrar el cuidado de Dios por nosotros. Así
como una madre cuida a su hijo, así de atento está Dios por
nuestras necesidades. Juntando la historia del Evangelio, la
imagen del amor paterno de Dios; no es de extrañarse que san
Pablo en su carta a los corintios tiene más confianza en la forma
cómo el Señor lo juzgara en lugar de los juicios humanos. Para
aquellas personas que tienen puestas sus esperanzas en Dios, el
tiempo del juicio lo único que puede traer son cosas buenas.

T HE P ASTOR’ S C OLUMN
LA C OLUMNA
As we have learned from Pope Francis over the past
few months through his encyclical letter, God is the giver
of all good gifts. He has given us life and continuously
graces us with His abundant love. He not only nourishes
us spiritually through the Holy Eucharist but He shelters
us, feeds us, and clothes us. In return, God asks us to
have faith in Him, to love Him, and to follow His light as
He leads us through our journey of life here on earth. He
wants us to be His disciples by leading and encouraging
others to join this magnificent journey of faith and life.
Part of our journey of faith includes sacrificing ourselves
for the greatest good of others, just like the Holy Family,
Joseph, Mary, and Jesus, sacrificed themselves to the
extreme for the good of all of us. Can a person truly be a
disciple of God if he lives a life of greed and hoarding and
who is self serving? No. If a person is not willing to share
generously his time, talents, and financial resources with
God then he cannot be a disciple of God because his or
her heart will be focused more in the world rather than in
the Kingdom of God. The message the Gospel of Matthew
tells us is not to worry about our life in this world and
rather focus on the Kingdom of Heaven: “. . .do not worry
about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your
body, what you will wear . . .your heavenly Father knows
that you need them, but first seek His Kingdom and His
righteousness and all these things will be given to you as
well.” (Matthew 6:25,32-33). Many times we don’t realize
that we become focused on ourselves and in the things of
this world. We lose the opportunity to focus on the
kingdom of heaven. Jesus is teaching us that if we focus
on the kingdom of God first we will be more blessed and
everything will be given to us by our heavenly Father. We
just need to be first committed and generous to God by
returning to Him our time, talent and treasure.
Each one of us has been blessed by God with certain
talents, abilities, resources and opportunities throughout
our lives. It is one of my responsibilities to encourage
parishioners to respond to the Lord’s call to be His
disciples and to live out a faithful response. As most of
you know, our parish has approximately 1200 parishioners
and less than half have pledged to our Capital Campaign
in order to pay for the renovation of our church. We are
supposed to share our resources with those who are in
most need. As I mentioned in my last homily our parish
has a second collection for charities every first weekend
of the month. Unfortunately only about 25% of our families
contribute. The same thing happens on the third weekend
of the month with only about 25% of families contributing to the facility fund collection, which is the fund that
enabled us to begin our renovation. Asking for money is
never a pleasant task; however, if all of our parish families
would tithe responsibly, generously, and faithfully every
weekend I would never have to ask for money and all of
our needs would be met.
“May almighty God Bless you with a generous, responsible
and faithful heart”.
Como hemos aprendido por el Papa Francisco por los
pasados meses a través de su Encíclica, Dios es el dador
de todos los buenos regalos. Nos ha dado vida y gracias
continuas con Su amor abundante. El no solamente nos
nutre espiritualmente a través de la Eucaristía, sino que El
nos protege, nos alimenta y nos viste. Dios nos pide que
tengamos fe en El, que lo amemos y sigamos su luz que
nos guía por este caminar de vida en esta tierra. El quiere
que seamos su discípulos guiando y motivando a otros a
unirse a este magnifico viaje de fe y de vida. Parte de ese
viaje de fe incluye sacrificándonos por un bien mayor de
los otros, como lo hizo la Sagrada Familia, Jesús, José y
María, sacrificándose hasta el extremo por todos
nosotros. ¿Puede una persona verdaderamente ser
discípulo de Dios si vive una vida de avaricia y acumulación y pensando solo en si mismo? No. Si una persona no
esta dispuesta a compartir generosamente su tiempo,
talento y recursos financieros con Dios no puede ser un
discípulo de Dios, porque su corazón esta concentrado
más en el mundo que en el Reino de Dios. El mensaje del
evangelio según San Mateo nos dice no anden preocupados por su vida: “ ¿qué vamos a comer?. Ni por su cuerpo:
¿qué nos pondremos? Pero el Padre de ustedes sabe que
necesitan todo eso. Por lo tanto, busquen primero el
Reino y la justicia de Dios, y esas cosas vendrán por añadidura.” (Mateo 6:25, 32, 33). Muchas veces no nos damos
cuenta de que nos enfocamos demasiado en nosotros y
en las cosas de este mundo. Perdemos la oportunidad de
enfocarnos en el Reino celestial. Jesucristo nos está
enseñando que si nos concentramos en el Reino de Dios
primero seremos bendecidos y nuestro Padre celestial nos
dará lo que necesitamos. Solo necesitamos comprometemos y darle a Dios generosamente de nuestro tiempo,
talento, y tesoro.
Cada uno de nosotros ha sido bendecido por Dios con
ciertos talentos, habilidades, recursos y oportunidades a
través de nuestra vida. Una de mis responsabilidades es
motivar a los feligreses a responder generosamente a la
llamada de Dios a ser discípulos y a vivir una respuesta
fiel y activa. Como la mayoría ya sabe, nuestra parroquia
tiene aproximadamente 1200 feligreses y menos de la
mitad se han comprometido con nuestra Campaña
Capital para poder pagar por las renovaciones de nuestra
Iglesia. Se supone que debemos compartir nuestros recursos con los más necesitados. Mencioné en mi última
homilía que nuestra parroquia tiene una segunda colecta
para asociaciones caritativas el primer fin de semana de
cada mes. Desafortunadamente solo el 25% de nuestras
familias contribuye. Lo mismo pasa con nuestro tercer fin
de semana del mes con sólo 25% de las familias contribuyendo para el Fondo de Mantenimiento; el cual nos permitió empezar la renovaciones. Pedir dinero no es agradable; sin embargo, si todas las familias de la parroquia
tomarán su corresponsabilidad responsable, generosa y
fielmente cada fin de semana, no tendría que pedir dinero nunca y todas nuestras necesidades estarían cubiertas.
“Que Dios altisimo los bendiga con un Corazon generosos,
responsible y fiel”.

AÑO DE LA FE: NOVIEMBRE DE 2013
Su reino no tendrá fin:
cuando llegues a tu reino acuérdate de mí
Meditación: Nosotros creemos con firme certeza que el Señor Jesús ha vencido el mal y la muerte. Con esta segura confianza nos
encomendamos a él. Presente entre nosotros, el Señor Jesús vence el poder del maligno (ver Lucas 11:20); la Iglesia, comunidad
visible de su misericordia, permanece en Jesús como signo de la reconciliación definitiva con el Padre (ver Benedicto XVI, La puerta
de la fe, 15).
El último mes del Año de la Fe empieza con Todos los Santos (Catecismo, 946–259; Compendio, 194–195; YouCat, 146) y Todos los
Fieles Difuntos (Catecismo, 1030–1032; Compendio, 210–211; YouCat, 159–160). Esperamos que un día, como Zaqueo que intentó
ver a Jesús y solo descubrió que Jesús ya había llegado buscándole a él, que oigamos decir a Jesús: “¡Hoy ha venido la salvación a
esta casa!” La liturgia de noviembre y el Leccionario nos mandan que meditemos sobre el fin de la vida y el juicio final (Catecismo,
1021–1022; Compendio, 207–208; YouCat, 154–155). Lucas, un artista según la tradición, concluye este Año de la Fe presentando
un retrato único de Cristo Rey. “Entronizado” en la cruz, Jesús moribundo da la bienvenida al primer ciudadano de su reino, a un
criminal que pide ni liberación del sufrimiento ni perdón—ni siquiera la salvación; solo dice: “Jesús, cuando llegues a tu reino
acuérdate de mí”. La respuesta de Jesús promete mucho más: “Te aseguro que hoy estarás conmigo en el paraíso”: la paz y la
abundancia, la consolación y la alegría, toda la creación en armonía con sí misma y con su Creador. Esta es nuestra fe y la fe de la
Iglesia. Que sea también nuestro futuro. ¡Amén! ¡Ven, Señor Jesús!
Misión: Buscar el perdón de Jesús con fe segura; es fácil decir a otras personas “lo siento”, porque Jesús lo ha hecho tan fácil para
mí.
