We welcome you to Holy Cross Parish and hope you enjoy your experience here. If you
would like more information about our parish or would like to pickup a registration form, please
visit our Welcome Desk located in the narthex. You may also visit our website at
www.holycrossatlanta.org.
Plan to join us! There is a place for everyone at Holy Cross.
Bienvenidos a la Iglesia de Holy Cross. Esperamos que disfruten su experiencia aquí. Si
desean más información sobre nuestra parroquia o les gustaría recoger un formulario de
inscripción, por favor visiten nuestro Escritorio de Bienvenida en el vestíbulo. También pueden
visitar nuestro sitio de internet en www.holycrossatlanta.org. Planeen unirse a nosotros!
Hay un lugar para todos en la Iglesia de Holy Cross.
From our Pastor/De Nuestro Párroco
Gente Buena de Holy Cross,
Vivimos en una cultura de celebridades. Muchos
de nosotros ponemos un gran interés en la vida de
los actores, músicos, políticos, figuras del deporte,
y chefs famosos. Debido a nuestro gran interés en
estas personas, existen muchas empresas que nos
proporcione información acerca de su vida personal
y gran parte de lo que informan no es favorecedor.
¿Por qué es que no estamos tan interesados en las
"buenas" cosas pero nos gusta lo "malo"; las fallas,
los comedores de empresas, las malas decisiones,
etcétera. ¿Puedes creer que ese fulano fue a
rehabilitación? No es ese político un idiota total
para engañar a su esposa? Te enteraste de aquel
actor hizo un berrinche? No puedo creer que ese
jugador sea tan estúpido como para usar esteroides.
Es un tarado!
Estamos llamados a amar. Mi conjetura es que,
rara vez es el amor el motivo cuando expresamos
nuestra desaprobación a los que nos han hecho
daño de alguna manera. La justicia propia? A
menudo. ¿Venganza? En algunos casos. Hacer
daño a ellos o hacerles sentir terrible por lo que han
hecho? La mayoria del tiempo. ¿Pero amor?
Probablemente no muy a menudo. "No, sino por la
gracia de Dios, que vaya", dice John Bradford y
tiene un buen punto. Muchas veces las cosas por las
que estamos descontentos con respecto a otros, son
exactamente las mismas cosas en las que fallamos
demasiado. En la práctica, esta es una de las cosas
más difíciles que estamos llamados por Jesús a
hacer. Amar y no juzgar, darnos cuenta de nuestros
propios defectos y faltas, y trabajar en ellos, en
lugar de ser rápidos en señalar los puntos débiles de
los demás. A estar interesados en lo bueno y no lo
malo!
Algunos trabajos de reparación muy necesaria
en las Ventanas de nuestra iglesia se ha completado
y evitará que el desgaste destruya la madera. En
nuestra reunión reciente sobre las finanzas,
terminamos el año fiscal en el negro (de nuevo!) ...
Sinceras Gracias a todos! Nuestro estado financiero
estará disponible para todos en breve. Los frailes
estarán presentes en la convocatoria de Sacerdote
de ATL esta semana, un tiempo para que todos los
sacerdotes de la diócesis se reúnan con nuestro
Arzobispo y trabajen, compartan, oren y aprendan.
Recen por nosotros como vamos a orar por todos
ustedes! Padre Calixto se quedará a cargo de la
fortaleza de lunes a jueves. Bendigan su corazón
Boliviano!
Padre Jude Michael
Good People of Holy Cross,
We live in a celebrity culture. Many of us
take great interest in the lives of actors, musicians,
politicians, sports figures, and celebrity chefs.
Because of our intense interest in these people,
many businesses exist to provide us with
information about their personal lives and much
of what they report is not flattering. Why is it that
we aren’t so interested in the “good” stuff but we
like the “bad” stuff; the failings, the mess-ups, the
bad decisions, etcetera. Can you believe so-andso went into rehab? Isn’t that politician a total jerk
for cheating on his wife? Did you hear about the
actor who threw a tantrum? I can’t believe that
player was stupid enough to use steroids. What a
moron!
We are called to love. My guess is that, rarely
is love the motive when we express our
disapproval to others who have wronged us in
some way. Self-righteousness? Often. Revenge?
In some cases. To hurt them or make them feel
terrible for what they have done? Much of the
time. But love? Probably not too often. “There,
but for the grace of God, go I” says John Bradford
and he has a good point. A lot of times the things
we are unhappy with regarding another are the
exact same things that we fail at too. In practice,
this is one of the most difficult things we are
called by Jesus to do. To love and not judge. To
realize our own faults and failings and work on
them, instead of being quick to point out others
foibles. To be interested in the good stuff and not
the bad!
Some much needed repair work on our
Church windows has been completed and will
prevent weathering from destroying the wood. At
our recent finance meeting, we ended the fiscal
year in the black (again!)….sincere thanks to all!
Our financial statement will be available to all
shortly. The friars will be attending the ATL
Priest convocation this week, a time for all the
priests of the diocese to meet with
our Archbishop and work, share,
pray, and learn.
Do pray for us as we shall pray
for all you! Fr. Calixto will
be holding down the fort
from Monday thru Thursday.
Bless his Bolivian heart!
Fr. Jude Michael

Dear Holy Cross family,
I am overwhelmed by all the love and support
that was given to me from the Holy Cross
community during the illness and death of my
beloved Dad, Robert McKinnon.Thank you to
all who sent a card, posted a facebook
message or email, or most importantly, prayed
for him and us. The prayers held us up through
it all. My Dad's funeral was a fitting tribute to his
life and his faith and we thank each of you who
could be at Corpus Christi Church to share in
the funeral Mass with us. I graciously and
humbly thank you all for everything. We are so
blessed to be part of the Holy Cross family.
With much love and gratitude,
Theresa O'Donnell

Los Amigos de San Martín es un

área de Atlanta. Es un ministerio de
voluntarios sin fines de lucro y
depende de la generosidad de los
feligreses de Holy Cross.
In the First Reading from the Book of Exodus, God speaks to Moses. In the midst of revealing to Moses what the
Israelites have done and how they have violated His trust in them, the Lord says, “I see how stiff-necked this people is.”
As is often the case in Holy Scripture, the term “stiff-necked” has a basis in agriculture, and one with which we may not
be familiar.
Farmers at that time used the term “stiff-necked” to describe an ox or horse which did not respond to directions. When
an animal like that would not move and resisted direction, the animal tended to stiffen and
freeze, thus the term “stiff-necked” for one who is stubborn and uncooperative.
God may consider us to be stiff-necked at times, might He not? In spite of the Lord’s appeals
to us to trust Him and to follow Him, we sometimes stiffen and resist. Usually we do that
because following the Lord may prove uncomfortable for us. God’s terms for us and His
expectations of us may sometimes seem unreasonable and even impossible.
Yet, that is the challenge of living stewardship as a way of life. It is not always easy, and it may
put us in positions where we feel uncomfortable and even vulnerable. Moses pleads the case
for his people to God and the Lord responds to Moses’ plea, his prayer, and Scripture tells us
“So the Lord relented in the punishment.” We do need to trust the Lord, and we do need to
pray to Him, as He will respond with love and mercy.

Families in Faith - The Challenge of the Word
September 11th is one of those defining moments in the life of Americans. It takes its place among other
hallowed dates: the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and the assassinations of President John Kennedy and Rev. Martin
Luther King Jr. Ask those alive at that time where they were, what the weather was like, who was with them,
and they are able to tell you. Such experiences form us as a people, but it is a deep sorrow that such communal
moments--so strong that they mark our psyche--are moments of great violence and often terrible carnage.
How does our faith and the good news of the Gospel help us understand and live in the face of such
tragedies? How does mercy, so much a part of the Scriptures and the very nature of God, live in these times?
There is no one easy response. Certainly the Scriptures offer comfort for those who have lost loved ones. We are
reminded that God cares for his creation, holds it in the palm of his hand, raises up the fallen on the wings of
eagles, drawing them close to his eternal life. We hear from the great prophets that God hears the cries of the
widow and orphan, that he hears the voice of the afflicted and that he will act to bring justice. Time and again
we are reminded that our God is not impotent. He acts on behalf of his people, that he will destroy all evil.
Still, amidst this comfort is the challenge of the Word. In passages hard to hear and nearly impossible to
embrace, we are told, vengeance belongs to the Lord, turn the other cheek, love your enemy or at the very least
forgive those who have wronged you, and do good to those who hate you. It can seem utter nonsense and
impractical to take this path, yet we cannot cling to the comfort of God's holy word without receiving its
challenge.
How we live this challenge as a nation founded on Judeo-Christian values and as faithful disciples of Jesus is
the call of the Gospel. How we remember and what we do to honor those who died is a window into our trust in
God and our desire to be disciples of his beloved son, Jesus. Hatred, anger, and resentment, while certainly
natural responses fail to accept that God has another way. As we gather Sunday morning, may the memory of
this day and other days of tragedy, cause us to turn not to ways of violence and hatred but to God who makes all
things new, who even now is wiping away all tears, raising up the dead to new life and calling us to his kingdom
of justice and peace. May our allegiances be to him as we live in God's mercy, sharing this mercy with all. In
this struggle may our hearts know his joy and peace.
