From the Pastor’s Desk:
In 1990, Michale Mohr’s son, Jeff,
moved to Arizona to work as a
computer technician. Michale, back
in Portland, Oregon, looed forward
to her son’s weekly calls. But after a
few years in Arizona, Jeff’s phone
calls began to taper off. When
Michale’s letters to him were
reurned, she decided to investigate. Michale found out
from Jeff’s friends that he had become addicted to
crystal meth, a powerful drug. One day, Jeff had just
walked away from his house. No one knew where he
was. For the next three years, Michale Mohr made it her
mission in life to find her son. She flew back and forth
between Oregon and Arizona, canvassing Jeff’s old
neighborhood and talking to his friends and associates.
The police offered little help. Michale’s quest to find her
drug-addicted son led her into dangerous, run-down
neighborhoods. She witnessed horrible decay and
poverty in these drug-infested hellholes. She faced
constant threats to her safety. At one point, she even
dressed as a homeless woman in order to relate to the
street people she interviewed. Finally, after three years,
Michale made contact with someone who knew Jeff. She
remembers distinctly the day she found him. Jeff rode up
on his bicycle. He had lost weight, his teeth were rotting,
he was bruised from a recent beating. But he had ridden
on his bicycle for ten miles in the sweltering Arizona
heat to find her. They ran into each other’s arms. Jeff
had been trying to fight his addiction, but he had been
afraid to contact his mother, afraid of how his addiction
might hurt her. You will be happy to know that Jeff
Mohr moved back to Oregon, got a steady job, and
joined Narcotics Anonymous.
Michale Mohr’s story appeared in Newsweek magazine
[“The Seamier Side of Life” by Michale Mohr,
Newsweek (August 18, 1997), p. 14.] It is a story that is
all too often repeated in families across our land. And
don’t think that Church families are immune to the curse
of losing a child to chemical addiction or even to crime.
-------------------------------------------------------------------Reconciliation with a hook: An elderly man on the beach
found a magic lamp. As he picked it up and started
cleaning it, a genie appeared and said: “Because you
have freed me I will grant you a wish.” The man responded. “I had a fight with my only and older brother
thirty years ago. I want to be reconciled with him so that
he may forgive me and start loving me.” The genie said,
“I am glad that you did not ask for money or riches.
Your wish is granted. Are you sick and about to die?”
the genie enquired. “No way!” the man shouted. “But
my unmarried, older brother is about to die and he’s
worth about $60 million!!”
En 1990, el hijo de
Michale Mohr, Jeff, se
trasladó a Arizona para trabajar como un técnico en
computación. Michale, en Portland, Oregón, esperaba con
anticipación las llamadas semanales de su hijo. Pero
después de algunos años en Arizona, las llamadas de
teléfono de Jeff se disminuyeron. Cuando las cartas de
Michale se le fueron devueltas, decidió investigar.
Michale descubrió por medio de los amigos de Jeff que se
había convertido en adicto al cristal de metanfetamina,
una droga potente. Un día, Jeff dejó su casa. Nadie sabía
dónde estaba. Por los próximos tres años, Michale Mohr
hizo su misión en la vida encontrar a su hijo. Ella voló
entre Oregón y Arizona, escudriñando el barrio viejo de
Jeff y hablando con sus amigos y asociados. La policía
ofreció poca ayuda. La búsqueda de Michale para
encontrar a su hijo adicto de drogas la llevó a correr por
barrios peligrosos. Presenció la horrible decadencia y la
pobreza en estas mazmorras infestadas de drogas. Se
enfrentó a las amenazas contra su seguridad. En un
punto, ella se vistió como una mujer sin hogar para
relacionarse con la gente de la calle que entrevistó.
Finalmente, después de tres años, Michale hizo contacto
con alguien que conocía a Jeff. Recuerda claramente el día
que lo encontró. Jeff montó su bicicleta. Había perdido
peso, sus dientes estaban podridos, molido de una paliza
reciente. Pero él se fue en su bicicleta recorriendo diez
millas en el sofocante calor de Arizona para encontrarla.
Corrieron a los brazos del otro. Jeff había estado tratando
de luchar contra su adicción, pero había sentido miedo de
contactar a su madre, pensando de cómo su adicción
podría lastimarla. Usted estará feliz de saber que Jeff
Mohr se movió de nuevo a Oregón, consiguió un empleo
fijo y se unió a Narcóticos Anónimos.
La historia de Michale Mohr apareció en la revista
Newsweek ["El Lado Oscuro de la Vida" por Michale
Mohr, Newsweek (18 de Agosto de 1997), p. 14.] Es una
historia que es repetida demasiado a menudo en las
familias a través de nuestra tierra. Y no creo que las
familias de la Iglesia sean inmunes a la maldición de perder a un hijo a la adicción química, o incluso a la delincuencia.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------Reconciliación con un gancho: un anciano en la playa
encuentra una lámpara mágica. La recogió y comenzó a
limpiarla, un genio apareció y le dijo: "Porque usted me
ha liberado te concederé un deseo". Respondió el
hombre. "Tuve una pelea con mi hermano más viejo y
único hace treinta años. Quiero reconciliarme con él para
que él pueda perdonarme y empezar a amarme." El genio
dijo, "me alegró que usted no pidió dinero o riquezas. Su
deseo es concedido. ¿Está usted enfermo y a punto de
morir?" preguntó el genio. "¡Ninguna manera!", gritó el
hombre. "Pero mi hermano soltero, más viejo está a punto de morir y el vale aproximadamente $ 60 millones!!!!"

On February 17, 2016, Pope
Francis’ trip through Mexico reached its
final stop at the northern border city of Juárez across the Rio Grande
from El Paso, and thus he symbolically traced the route of migrants
through Mexico, focusing on their need for human dignity. Juárez once
had the highest murder rate in Mexico and possibly, all of Latin America.
In 2011, in a city of 1.3 million there were 10 homicides every day,
driving an estimated 100,000 people across the border into El Paso and
neighboring Las Cruces, New Mexico, many of whom remain out of fear.
However, the apparent victory of one drug gang over its rival, as well as
social programs launched by private business has significantly reduced
the killing. For three weeks before the Pope arrived, worker in Juárez
cleaned and painted streets, and on the day of the Pope’s arrival, local
government suspended the sale of alcohol. An estimated 70,000 people formed a human chain to protect the
papal motorcade along the 25-mile route from the airport to the border. Francis visited a prison in Juárez, riding
through in a motorized cart among the 3,000-strong tattooed congregation. He shook hands and hugged inmates
and called on the men and women who had committed horrific acts to find themselves there, to end their cycle of
murderous violence, cut their gang ties and become ‘prophets’. Then he visited a college and spoke with workers
and business leaders. Talking to the group, he condemned excessing capitalism. He said “God will hold the
slave drivers of our days accountable, and we must do everything to make sure that these situations do not
happen again. “The flow of capital cannot decide the flow and life of people.” Later at the edge of the Rio Grande
at a memorial built for his visit and dedicated to immigrants who died crossing the border, Pope Francis prayed. It
has one enormous cross, several smaller crosses and a ramp that slowly rises to provide a view of the border
fence and the U.S. Pope Francis laid a bouquet of flowers and read the sign across the river in El Paso:
“Immigrant Lives Matter.” At the fairgrounds 300 feet from the border, he presided over a cross-border Mass with
200,000 people on the Mexican side, and a small group of people from the Roman Catholic Diocese of El Paso,
along with police and border guards on the U.S. side. Pope Francis saluted “our brothers and sisters” in El Paso
who watched the live broadcast of the Mass at the Sun Bowl Stadium, adding that thanks to technology, "we can
pray, sing and celebrate together ... and that no border can prevent us from sharing." He decried the global
“human tragedy” that forces people to migrate unwillingly, risking death -- “each step, a journey laden with grave
injustices: the enslaved, the imprisoned and extorted.” He prayed for compassion and conversation. One
resident of Juárez said “we came to get his blessing, it’s a way to give us hope, having him with us.” Though he
said he doesn’t expect the Mass to bring an end to the violence in his native Chihuahua state, in the long run,
“this will change a lot of people’s consciences.” Sources: news.va, cruxnow.com, dailymail.co.uk, latimes.com, theatlantic.com
