FOURTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
JULY 3, 2016
July 6
St. Maria Goretti
(1890-1902)
Beautiful, pious farm girl, one of six children of
Luigi Goretti and Assunta Carlini. In 1896 the
family moved to Ferriere di Conca. Soon after,
Maria’s father died of malaria, and the family
was forced to move onto the Serenelli farm to
survive. In 1902 at age twelve, Maria was
attacked by 19-year-old farm-hand Alessandro
Serenelli. He tried to rape the girl who fought,
yelled that it was a sin, and that he would go to
hell. He tried to choke her into submission, then
stabbed her fourteen times. She survived in
hospital for two days, forgave her attacker,
asked God‘s forgiveness of him, and died holding a crucifix and medal of Our Lady. Counted
as a martyr. While in prison for his crime,
Allessandro had a vision of Maria. He saw a garden where a
young girl, dressed in white, gathered lilies. She smiled, came
near him, and encouraged him to accept an armful of the lilies.
As he took them, each lily transformed into a still white flame.
Maria then disappeared. This vision of Maria led to Alessandro’s conversion, and he later testified at her cause for beatification. (photo circa 1902)
“It is well known how this young girl had to face a bitter struggle with no way to defend herself. Without warning a vicious
stranger burst upon her, bent on raping her and destroying her
childlike purity. In that moment of crisis she could have spoken to her Redeemer in the words of that classic, The Imitation
of Christ: “Though tested and plagued by a host of misfortunes, I have no fear so long as your grace is with me. It is my
strength, stronger than any adversary; it helps me and give me
guidance.” With splendid courage she surrendered herself to
God and his grace and so gave her life to protect her virginity.
The life of a simple girl – I shall concern myself only with
highlights – we can see as worthy of heaven. Even today people can look upon it with admiration and respect. Parents can
learn from her story how to raise their God-given children in
virtue, courage, and holiness; they can learn to train them in
the Catholic faith so that, when put to the test, God’s grace will
support them and they will come through undefeated, unscathed, and untarnished. From Maria’s story carefree children
and young people with their zest for life can learn not to be led
astray by attractive pleasures which are not only ephemeral
and empty but also sinful. Instead they can fix their sights on
achieving Christian moral perfection, however difficult that
course may prove. With determination and God’s help all of us
can attain that goal by persistent effort and prayer. Not all of us
are expected to die a martyr‘s death, but we are all called to the
pursuit of Christian virtue. So let us all, with God’s grace,
strive to reach the goal that the example of the virgin martyr,
Saint Maria Goretti, sets before us. Through her prayers to the
Redeemer may all of us, each in his own way, joyfully try to
follow the inspiring example of Maria Goretti who now enjoys
eternal happiness in heaven”. – from a homily by Venerable
Pope Pius XII at the canonization of Saint Maria Goretti

News From The Streets…
Eddie
By Mary Martha Primerano
Right away we all noticed him. A tall man with a bandage on
his left knee. Maybe it was his custom made tricycle with a
large wooden box attached to the front that made Eddie (not
his real name) stand out. But soon, that large wooden box
would be filled with food, clothing, and toiletries. Then came
an opportunity to ask Eddie, “Have you ever asked Jesus to
come into your heart?” He bowed his head and responded,
“No, I’ve never done it.” Would you like to pray with us now
and do that? Eddie responded, “Yes, I would.” We quickly
lead him into a prayer asking God to forgive him of his
sins, and that at this moment he chose to receive Jesus as his
Lord and Savior. Eddie seemed so grateful after our visit
that he asked if we would return soon and if so he would be
back next week to meet with us. If this ministry has touched
you hearts, now would be a good time to donate “new” or your
gently used bibles (large print) - Converts like Eddie are always asking for one.

“ AC L A M A D A L S E Ñ O R , T I E R R A E N T E R A ”
S U F R IM I EN TO ,
C A MI N O D E AM O R
Lucas 10, 1-12. 17-20.- En aquel tiempo, designó el Señor otros
setenta y dos, y los envió de dos en dos delante de sí, a todas las
ciudades y sitios a donde él había de ir. Y les dijo: La mies es
mucha, y los obreros pocos. Rogad, pues, al Dueño de la mies
que envíe obreros a su mies. Id; mirad que os envío como corderos en medio de lobos. No llevéis bolsa, ni alforja, ni sandalias. Y no saludéis a nadie en el camino. En la casa en que entréis, decid primero: "Paz a esta casa." Y si hubiere allí un hijo
de paz, vuestra paz reposará sobre él; si no, se volverá a vosotros. Permaneced en la misma casa, comiendo y bebiendo lo
que tengan, porque el obrero merece su salario. No vayáis de
casa en casa. En la ciudad en que entréis y os reciban, comed lo
que os pongan; curad los enfermos que haya en ella, y decidles:
"El Reino de Dios está cerca de vosotros." En la ciudad en que
entréis y no os reciban, salid a sus plazas y decid: "Hasta el
polvo de vuestra ciudad que se nos ha pegado a los pies, os lo
sacudimos. Pero sabed, con todo, que el Reino de Dios está
cerca." Os digo que en aquel Día habrá menos rigor para Sodoma que para aquella ciudad. Regresaron los 72 alegres, diciendo: "Señor, hasta los demonios se nos someten en tu nombre."
Él les dijo: "Yo veía a Satanás caer del cielo como un rayo.
Mirad, os he dado el poder de pisar sobre serpientes y escorpiones, y sobre todo poder del enemigo, y nada os podrá hacer daño; pero no os alegréis de que los espíritus se os sometan; alegraos de que vuestros nombres estén escritos en los cielos."
Reflexión.- La segunda lectura de hoy (Gálatas 6, 14-18) toca
un problema fundamental de la vida humana: el sufrimiento y la
cruz. Por eso vamos a reflexionar sobre este tema tan existencial. Vamos a ver cuál es la actitud del cristiano frente al sufrir.
El sufrimiento es algo que repugna al hombre. Para muchos su
realidad es, justamente, la prueba de que Dios no existe: les
parece imposible que un Ser todopoderoso y lleno de amor no
usará ese amor y ese poder para impedir que haya guerras, asesinatos, injusticias, niños que nacen deformes, cáncer que mata
a madres cuando sus hijos más las necesitan, etc. Al cristiano se
le pide, sin embargo, mucho más: no sólo creer en Dios a pesar
de la existencia del sufrimiento, si no también saber aceptar ese
sufrimiento como camino de amor. Este es el punto donde se
dividen los espíritus y donde se decide si somos o no cristianos.
Somos cristianos de verdad desde el momento en que aceptamos la cruz, porque es en la cruz donde se prueba nuestro corazón de hijos.
La cruz se produce cuando nuestra voluntad se “cruza” con la
voluntad del Padre Dios: cuando yo quiero una cosa, y Él me
pide otra o permite que suceda algo que va en contra de mis
deseos. Si entonces acepto la cruz, me hago verdadero hijo porque manifiesto que confío en mi Padre, porque creo que sus
caminos son más sabios que los míos, y que me dejo conducir
por ellos, renunciando a los míos, aunque me duela. “Si el
grano de trigo no muere, quedará solo y no producirá fruto”,
nos dice el Señor. Siendo bueno, Dios no podría permitir nunca
el mal por el mal, si de él no resultara bien alguno. Lo que sucede es que no siempre descubrimos el fruto positivo que surge
del mal, porque no conocemos la totalidad del plan de Dios. El
sentido de muchos dolores nuestros tal vez lo entenderemos
recién en el cielo. En el cielo - al ver el plan total que Dios tenía
con nuestra vida - comprenderemos que todos nuestros sufrimientos los permitió Dios por amor: para corregirnos y educarnos, para librarnos del egoísmo y de la afición por los bienes
terrenales, para obligarnos a crecer en dimensiones nuevas, para
enriquecernos espiritualmente. Así el sufrimiento no es castigo
de Dios, sino al contrario, prueba de su amor de Padre. San Pedro compara el sufrimiento con un crisol, donde Dios purifica el
oro de nuestra fe y de nuestro amor. Cuando Dios hace sufrir,
significa que nos está dando una oportunidad de crecer en el
amor y la confianza, de desarrollar aspectos nuevos de nuestra
personalidad cristiana, que hasta ahora estaban dormidos, atrofiados o enfermos. Cristo y la Santísima Virgen sufrieron muchísimo, precisamente porque fueron los más amados por Dios.
También ha sido el destino de todos los santos, los grandes predilectos de Dios. Todo sufrimiento y cruz que aceptamos como
cristianos es siempre participación de la Pasión de Cristo. Él se
entregó hasta la cruz como expiación por nuestros pecados. Así
también nosotros participamos, por medio de nuestro sufrir, en
esta expiación, no sólo por los pecados propios, si no también
por los pecados de los demás. Y siempre cuando nos es dada
una nueva cruz, debemos verla en unión con Él, nuestro Redentor. Cuando consideramos así nuestra cruz como parte de su
cruz, aprenderemos con más facilidad a llevarla pacientes, obedientes y, con el tiempo, incluso alegres. Así lo hizo, ante todo,
María, la Madre de Jesús. Lo acompañó durante su vida en los
tiempos felices y en los tiempos difíciles, hasta el pie de la cruz.
Y por eso no es sólo Cristo quien está con nosotros, en tiempos
de dolor, sino que también su Madre - que es nuestra Madre está con nosotros al pie de nuestra cruz.
Y en la medida en que participamos así como Ella en la Pasión
de Jesús, tenemos también la promesa de participar en la vida
glorificada de Cristo en el cielo, tal como ya lo está haciendo
María desde su Asunción. Queridos hermanos, pongamos pues
en esta Eucaristía, nuestro sufrimiento y cruz personal sobre la
patena, como nuestra ofrenda, para unirlo con el sacrificio perfecto de Cristo en la cruz. Porque sabemos que esta celebración
es la renovación de su Pasión y Muerte, pero también de su
Ascensión y Glorificación en el cielo - anuncio y promesa de
nuestro propio destino en la vida eterna.
¡Qué así sea! En el nombre del Padre, del Hijo y del Espíritu
Santo. Amén.
