Laudato Si’ – A Review and Personal Commentary - 9
On Care of Our Common Home
V. Civic and Political Love
Have you ever heard someone say:
“Everybody is doing their own thing?” In this
situation, people do not sacrifice their own time or
energy to engage in civic or community affairs. It is a
loving and caring thing to have a party and to have
everyone show up and participate in the party. Civic
and community enterprises include doings such as
parades, county fairs, 4-H clubs, co-ops, NGOs,
Bread for the World, CARE, a community garden.
Apostolic works enable individuals and groups to
share their talents and skills with people in need.
(#227-232) We here at St. Therese will be happy to
read that Francis calls upon our patroness: “St.
Therese of Lisieux invites us to practice the little way
of love and not to miss out on a kind word, smile, or
any small gesture that sows peace and
friendship.” (#230)
VI. Sacramental Signs and the Celebration of Rest
Ignatian Spirituality shines through the
following statement: “The ideal is not only to pass
from the exterior to the interior to discover that action
of God in the soul, but also to discover God in all
things.” (#233) “The sacraments are a privileged way
in which nature is taken up by God to become a
means of mediating supernatural life. (#235) The
Eucharist gives us the fullness of God in the form of
food and drink. (#236) Sunday is the Christian
Sabbath. It is the day of the resurrection; it is a day of
rest and celebration. (#237)
VII. The Trinity and the Relationship Between
The Trinity is the most important--and
complicated -- doctrine of our faith. Thus, it is
impossible for me to simplify the pope’s terse, but,
enlightening statements. “The Father is the ultimate
source of everything, the loving and selfcommunicating foundation of all that exists. The Son,
His reflection, through whom all things were created,
united Himself to this earth when He was formed in
the womb of Mary. The Spirit, infinite bond of love,
is intimately present at the very heart of the universe,
inspiring and bringing new pathways. The world was
created by the three persons acting as a single divine
principle, but each one of them performed this
common work in accordance with His own personal
property.” (#238) In fact, Saint Bonaventure teaches
that “each creatures bears in itself a specifically
Trinitarian structure.” (239) “The divine persons are
subsistent relations, and the world, created according
to the divine model, is a web of relationships.
Creatures tend toward God and, in turn, it is proper to
every living being to tend toward other things so that
throughout the universe we can find any number of
constant and secretly interwoven relationships. This
leads us not only to marvel at the manifold
connections existing among creatures but also to
discover a key to our own fulfillment. The human
person grows more, matures more, and is sanctified
more to the extent that he or she enters into
relationships, going out from themselves to live in
communion with God, with others, and with all
creatures. In this way they make their own that
Trinitarian dynamism that God imprinted in them
when they were created. Everything interconnected,
and this invites us to develop a spirituality of that
global solidarity that flows from the mystery of the
Trinity.” (#240)
VIII. Queen of the Universe
Pope Francis’ own devotion to Our Lady
leads him to show three perspectives about her. Mary
cared for Jesus and cares for the earth with maternal
affection. She moaned for the death of her Son and
grieves for the sufferings of the poor and of all
creatures. Now, in glory, she and all creatures rejoice
(#241) Her husband, Joseph, “can teach us how to
show care; he can inspire us to work with generosity
and tenderness in protecting this world that God has
entrusted to us.” (#242)
IX. Beyond the Sun
“There is an after-life, and we will find
ourselves face-to-face with the infinite beauty of
God…” (#243) “In the meantime we come together to
take charge of this home that has been entrusted to us,
knowing that all the good that exists here will be
taken up into the heavenly feast. In union with all
creatures we journey through this land seeking for
God…”(#244) The pontiff concludes with two
beautiful prayers: an ecumenical prayer for our earth
and a specifically Christian prayer in union with
Creation. (#246)

Advent Directed Retreat
November 29 - December 5, 2015
Our Advent Week of Directed Prayer has been a great
success. It enables the participants to get into the Advent Season
and to deepen their relationship with God. A team of Ignatian
Spiritual Directors will provide individual prayer direction for
interested parishioners in a “retreat” which you can do at home.
The retreat will begin with a group meeting on Sunday, Nov.
29th from 1:15pm - 2:15pm. During the week (Monday - Friday),
each person making the retreat will meet with an Ignatian Spiritual Director for 30
minutes daily. Your director will discuss prayer with you and suggest Scripture for you
to pray each day of the retreat. On Saturday, Dec. 5th, all participants will gather after
the 9:00am Mass for the conclusion of the retreat.
The only requirement is your commitment to pray for approximately 30 minutes
each day during this time and to meet with your spiritual director daily.
For more information and/or to register, please fill out a registration form and
return it to the parish office, or call the parish office at 704-664-3992 by Wednesday,
November 25th. You can use the registration form below or the one on the parish

contributions or plan to make an additional gift
before the end of the year, we encourage you to

Presenting...the St. Therese Catholic Church Motto and Logo!
For the past several months the Pastoral Council has been working to develop a motto and logo to
represent the parishioners of St. Therese. Please join with us as we all strive to follow our motto...
We hope you enjoy our new motto and logo!
- St. Therese Pastoral Council
The rose in our logo was designed to match the
roses being held by St. Therese in our new
statue. When the heart is colored red, the rose
inside appears white. Roses have a special
significance for Pope Francis. V atican Insider
quotes an interview with then-Cardinal
Bergoglio by Sergio Rubin and Francesca
Ambrogetti in the book El Jesuita (The Jesuit):
In a description the two journalists give of
Bergoglio’s library in Buenos Aires, they write:
“We pause before a vase full of white roses
standing on a shelf in the library. In front of it is
a photograph of Saint Thérèse. “Whenever I
have a problem,” Bergoglio explained to the
journalists, “I ask the saint not to solve it, but to
take it into her hands and to help me accept it
and I almost always receive a white rose as a
Christmas Giving Tree

Catholic Families, by Mary Cronk Farrell
Class Spotlight
Seventh grade students in our faith formation
program begin the first of a two year Confirmation
program. Their year is spent learning about Jesus
Christ. The chapters they cover in their Finding God
book from Loyola Press cover his life and teachings.
The students learn about the Gospel writers as well as
a number of saints.
Throughout the year, seventh grade students are
invited to participate in half
day retreats that are held
here at Saint Therese. The
retreats focus on
discipleship and how to be
filled with the love of God.
A couple of weeks ago the Confirmation students
welcomed Tyra Lokey to Saint Therese. Tyra is a
direct product of God's provision, protection, grace,
and unabounding love. She shared her testimony of
a hard childhood and God’s amazing turn around of
her life.

“La Esquina Ignaciana”
Hoy día es la fiesta de Cristo Rey. Es la fiesta final del año litúrgico, una
fiesta en que paramos a ver lo que hemos recibido por el don de ser
hombres y mujeres dedicados al Reino de Dios y también un fiesta para
mirar adelante y soñar de cómo el miso Reino pueda ser más visible en
nuestras vidas durante el año que viene. Es un momento rico para dar
gracias por las posibilidades de construir un mundo de paz y justicia que
hemos vivido durante el año 2015: la visita de Francisco a nuestras orillas
ciertamente fue un momento inspirador a recordar las maneras concretas
por las cuales Dios nos ofreció para seamos constructores mejores de
aquel mundo. Es también un momento para rezar que nos hagamos
abiertos a las múltiples posibilidades sorprendentes que el Señor
proveyera en el año 2016 para que nosotros, hombres y mujeres, ricos y pobres, grandes y
desconocidos, viviéramos juntos en un mundo más pacífico, más justo, más lleno de amor
verdadero. Es un día del sueño de que el reino del Padre de Jesús sea una realidad visible
durante todas las edades hsitóricas.
Esta semana también es el momento solemne de celebrar el Día de Acción de Gracias,
Thanksgiving. Esta fiesta originó en los primeros años de la colonia de Massachusetts Bay
cuando, después de la cosecha abundante, los ingleses compartieron una comida con el pueblo
indígena, en un gesto de paz entre los dos grupos. Representó el deseo bíblico de una sociedad
humana basada en el respeto mutuo entre todos los hombres y mujeres. Simboliza el ideal sobre
el cual el país joven de Los Estados Unidos se construyó. Probablemente es la fiesta menos
comercializada de todo el año. Es una celebración que hay que llamar la atención de todos los
cristianos y de todas las personas de buena voluntad.
¿Cuál sería la manera adecuada de celebrar este día especial? Pienso que la cosa primaria y
absolutamente necesaria sería rezar o individualmente o, mejor, como una familia. La oración
podría ser una de recordar a las personas queridas, las oportunidades, las alegrías humanas, las
esperanzas, las historias personales de todos que están ofreciendo la oración. Y, después de
recordar, simplemente agradecer a Dios por estas cosas y por todo que Dios nos ha dado durante
el año pasado. Una oración especial de este día especial sería participar en la misa, la oración
perfecta de acción de gracias. Otra cosa, por supuesto, sería compartir una comida rica con la
familia y con otros queridos como signo de la unidad por la cual celebramos y, con anhelo,
esperamos que sea más realidad en nuestro alrededor.
En el texto de San Lucas, del leproso samaritano que volvió de dar gracias a Dios, Jesús nos
enseña una cosa muy importante sobre la gratitud. Dice que la importancia de ella es no
solamente porque es la manera por la cual recordamos nuestra realidad básica de ser criaturas en
frente de un Dios que nos ama con un amor enorme pero también porque la gratitud es la
manera a juntarnos más estrechamente con ese mismo Dios. Esta fe nos limpia para que
podamos triunfar sobre todo el mal y toda nuestra miseria. Agradecer a Dios es decir que nuestra
única esperanza es el Señor y, diciendo eso, nos hacemos agentes de aquella esperanza para
todos los demás. Cantemos con alegría especial esta semana de Acción de Gracias por que el
Señor es realmente bueno con nosotros.
