A Word from Our Pastor Fr. Ron Weissbeck
My dear family in Christ,
We have had the privilege of receiving the teaching of the Bread of Life from the Gospel of John. Each
week Jesus has disclosed more precisely what that means in relation to His mission. Now we come to the central theme of
this whole section, the real presence in the Eucharistic elements. “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the
Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal
life, and I will raise him on the last day” (John 6:53).
This gift has been entrusted to the Church and is offered through the Mass. In the recent revision of the Roman
Missal, which was introduced at the same time that I came to St. John the Baptist in 2011, there is a statement in the forward
that Christ is the one who actually is the primary agent of the divine action. When I was rereading the introduction I was
alerted to the words that still have an impact as when they were first stated in the Council of Trent, “The Eucharistic
Sacrifice is in the first place the action of Christ himself, whose inherent efficacy is therefore unaffected by the manner in
which the faithful participate in it” (#11, Introduction). These words caught my attention since I have only celebrated the
Mass in the vernacular over the years. I have always been convinced that how I celebrate, and how the congregation
participates is essential. It is very important, but the words quoted above gave me pause to realize that it is the action of
Christ entrusted to the Church that makes it effective.
Since the Mass is in the language of the people, in this case English, there is more expectation that everything that is
presented sustains the interest and involvement of the participants. That has been an expectation that I have found common
among a significant group of Catholics. It is very sobering to realize that it is the action of Christ primarily. He is the one
who is present fully: body, blood, soul and divinity.
We speak of this as real presence. At the heart of the Eucharistic sacrifice is the Son who is offered to the Father
and we, who are members of the Church, are caught up in Christ in offering this inexhaustible gift. What I’m leading
toward is the need, on our part, to renew our participation and understanding of what we have in this act of worship. Yes,
we are impacted by the atmosphere, the music, and the feeling of belonging. Nevertheless, it is the act of faith that each
participant expresses at every celebration that will renew each one of us in fuller, active, and transforming participation.
I offer the following challenge: What is my awareness of the real presence in the Eucharistic celebration, and
following from this first part, How will I put this into practice?
Fr. Ron
RCIA, with Anna Campbell
We are now hearing the Word of God from the
Gospel of John. We are learning about the bread from
heaven. I have seen that it is sometimes easier for a person
coming from another faith or coming to learn about the
Bread of Life to accept this as an absolute truth than some
of us who are “cradle Catholics.” Have you been talking to
your friends and family members who might be hungry to
hear the Word of God? Give them a gift! Talk to them
about your faith! Invite them to come explore this faith
with us in RCIA.
We will start up
again on
September 13th
at 8:30 a.m.
Bring them in
and introduce
them, or ask
them to get in touch with me at [email protected]

20th Sunday in Ordinary Time
St. John’s Food Bank
and Outreach
There was a man who lived on the edge of a small
Midwestern town. He kept to himself, had his groceries
delivered, and never ventured past his own front gate. No one
made an effort to know him, and it stayed that way for nearly
sixty years. When the man passed away, it was found that he had
no family. The state-appointed lawyer for his estate ordered
everything in his home sold or disposed of. Upon entering his
home, the auctioneers found nearly every wall of the home
covered in beautiful oil paintings, created by the man no one
knew. He had a beautiful gift, yet he kept it to himself, and in
doing so he deprived so many others of its beauty.
Today’s Gospel reading from John continues the theme
of Jesus as the Bread of Life. He tells those listening that
whoever eats His flesh and drinks His blood will have eternal life.
We hear these words at every Mass as the priest recites the
similar words from the Last Supper. We hear them so often we
might not even react to their true meaning. Yet imagine hearing
them for the first time that day with Jesus! The people, who have
already witnessed His miracles, still refer to him as “this man.”
They cannot believe.
We approach the altar solemnly, reverently. The host is
placed in our hands; “the body of Christ.” We are offered the
cup; “the blood of Christ.” And with each gift, we respond,
“Amen.” And it is in that amen that we are truly saying, “Yes, in
receiving the true body and blood of Christ, I am becoming the
body and blood of Christ and wish to share it with others.” Our
faith, our belief in God’s saving grace, “is a treasure of life which
is enriched by being shared” (CCC 949).
By John Williams
Our Thursday morning crew begins at 9:00 a.m.
and immediately begins building the boxes of food we will
distribute on this day. Using our weekly updated menu
board we begin going down the list of items, beginning
with the heavier items, and top these boxes off with bread
and sweets.
Around 10:30 a.m. we begin getting carts loaded
for the drivers who come in before noon. The cart holds
boxes we have prepared according to size. We then put in
the produce, and when the driver arrives, we add the
perishable items. Then off they go for delivery!
We have two couples that come in for the last two
hours who are responsible for sweeping floors, vacuuming
the mats, and breaking down the recycled items for
appropriate disposal. We have eighteen commercial
stainless steel tables which are cleaned with a sanitizer so
they will be ready for deliveries the following Tuesday
morning. It is an awesome sight to see our warehouse so
neat and clean when it is all done. Thank you to our
Thursday crew for all the care and pride you take in
keeping us sanitary and well-organized!
At the Table
©2009 Liturgical Publications Inc
In today’s first reading, Wisdom is imagined as a
woman rich in poise and grace. She moves smoothly and
confidently about her temple-like home. She doesn’t flutter
about, nervous with worry. Wisdom sends her maidens to
invite all to her open house. The guests do not possess any
particular genius or insight. They need only be a people of
good will and common sense. They are summoned to leave
behind foolishness and to find for themselves a place at
Wisdom’s table. There they may and can eat and drink
Today’s gospel draws us back to the table of the
Eucharist. Jesus addresses those who seek to understand
His words and, sadly, those who seek to avoid them. As
people born of God, we are called and equipped to seek
God’s will and act on it.

Catechist's Corner
Catholic Religious Education (Creed)
Hello parish family! We are working like bees at CREED to ensure a fantastic
school year! My family and I are gearing up for some long awaited vacation time in
Outer Banks, North Carolina, the last week of August. So if anyone needs to reach me,
Liz Smith, your SJB CREED Coordinator, please reach out before August 21st at
303-776-0737, ext. 106!
Check out our improved website! We strive to make
as helpful as possible. We are very excited to bring to you the newest addition, our
CATHOLIC ENRICHMENT tab. Under this tab you will find all the current programs
our parish offers to assist each family and parishioner to “enrich” our Catholic lives by
enhancing the knowledge of our faith. I ask you to check back often as we are
constantly working on ways to offer more. We welcome your constructive comments
so we can make it most useful to our parish members. CATHOLIC RELIGIOUS
EDUCUATION (CREED) is found under this tab.
Registration is in full swing! Feel free to stop by my office any time each
Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., or drop off registration
forms and tuition fees at our reception desk. Again, please remember that registration
forms for “Catholic Religious Education” may be found on our website under
Our catechists are an ALL STAR team! I cannot express how excited I am to
be working with such an amazing group of people this fall. Our catechists are
experienced and faith-filled people who are devoted to assisting our SJB families in
their pursuit to instill the Catholic faith our parish children. We are blessed to have
them, but are still in need of a few assistants to aide our teachers. Please consider this
volunteer option and contact me with any questions.
What’s old is new again! CREED has decided to embrace an old tradition with
our younger CREED students. Grades K-2 classes will be held on Sunday mornings
from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. We recognize that little ones may have some challenges in the
standard classroom setting after attending school all day. Our new time for this
younger group will go from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m., and falls between the two most popular
family Masses, 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. To complement these classes, our Children’s
Liturgy of the Word will start up again in November at the 10:30 a.m. Mass, and we
encourage all families to stay after their child’s class and attend. This is a wonderful
Mass for our little ones, especially those preparing for their First Holy Communion.
This change will allow for ALL other grades, 3-8, to be held on Tuesday
Evenings from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
First Classes begin September 15th
Grades 3-8 - Tuesdays, 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.
RCIC and RCIT (for children in need of missed sacraments)
Tuesdays 6:00 - 7:30 p.m
Grades K-2 - Sundays, 9:30 - 10:15 a.m. beginning September 20th

Hemos tratado algo sobre la evangelización. La evangelización tiene su fuente y su culmen en la
Eucaristía. Jesucristo está ahora glorioso en el Cielo y también está en el Sagrario, donde adoramos al
Señor, le damos gracias, y pedimos su ayuda.
Pero ¿Qué es la Eucaristía? Nos lo dijo muy claro en aquel discurso de Cafarnaúm, donde
prometió dejarnos su cuerpo como alimento: “Si alguno come este pan vivirá eternamente; y el Pan que yo
le daré es mi Carne para la vida del mundo” (Juan 6:51) “Quien come mi Carne y bebe mi Sangre
permanece en mí y yo en él” (Juan 6:56).
En el Cenáculo, aquel memorable Jueves Santo, instituye este maravilloso misterio de quedarse hecho pan;
“Tomo pan, lo bendijo, lo partió y lo dio a sus discípulos diciendo: “Tomad y Comed esto es mi Cuerpo...”y tomando el
cáliz: “Bebed todos de él pues esta es mi sangre, sangre de la alianza nueva y eterna que será derramada por todos para la
remisión de los pecados” (Mateo 26:26-28).
Lo creemos porque el mismo Jesús lo dejó claro. Y así lo han creído todos los fieles desde la época apostólica hasta
nuestros días, como bien lo recoge el reciente Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica en el número 1374: “Jesucristo está
verdadera, real y substancialmente con su Cuerpo, con su Sangre, con su Alma y con su Divinidad”
Alguien podría decir: nada veo en la Eucaristía, ni nada siento. Y, le podríamos responder: cuando el cielo está
nublado, no veo el sol, ¿señal de que no existe? O, no siento que la tierra está girando, ¿señal de que está parada?
Pensemos cómo la gran mayoría de las cosas que sabemos es porque aceptamos lo que nos dicen nuestros maestros y
nuestros padres: ¿quién ha visto un átomo, la fuerza gravitacional, Neptuno y Plutón?... ¿Quién ha sacado los cálculos de la
casa donde vive? ¡Le hemos creído al señor que la hizo!, ¿Quién analiza los alimentos que tomamos? ¡Le hemos creído a la
cocinera que los hizo con higiene! Le creemos a tantos humanos, y ¿vamos a dudar de las palabras de Jesús, que nos mostró
con su vida, su palabra y sus milagros que es el verdadero Dios? ¿Se habrán equivocado millones de católicos durante 2000
años, muchos de ellos, santos y sabios?
La Eucaristía es un misterio de Amor que sólo parece imposible a aquel que no cree que Jesucristo es Dios, Creador
y Señor omnipotente del universo.
(Cfr. Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica, nn. 1356-1401)
Como un Sacrificio porque hace presente el sacrificio de la Cruz, porque es su memorial y nos aplica su fruto. Es cuando le
llamamos Santa Misa.
Como Banquete sagrado de la Comunión en el Cuerpo del Señor.
Como Presencia Eucarística de Cristo que se queda en el Sagrario, para permanecer a nuestro lado, para
sostenernos, para guiarnos.
Pues bien, la evangelización tiene su fuerza, su luz y su motivación en la Eucaristía que celebramos en una única fe. Ojalá y
podamos valorarla y celebrarla mejor cada día.

Peaceful Protest of Planned Parenthood in Longmont
Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America, has been making national headlines in recent months.
An attempt to remove federal funding from the organization passed the House but did not pass the Senate. Since then,
several states have advanced efforts to decrease or eliminate state funding to Planned Parenthood.
Public outcry is essential in the movement to discredit and defund Planned Parenthood. This will save many lives.
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in America, performing 300,000 per year. They receive a half a billion
dollars of taxpayer money a year. International Planned Parenthood Federation spent $6 million in 2014 alone funding
abortion groups in Catholic Latin America trying to legalize abortion.
On Saturday, August 22, pro-life Americans throughout the country will gather at Planned Parenthood locations
nationwide to protest the abortion giant’s barbaric practice of aborting babies and selling their body parts. In the wake of the
horrific videos exposing this practice, now is the time for Christians to stand up and demand an end to the nation’s largest
abortion provider:
Event: National Day of Protest Against Planned Parenthood
When: Saturday, August 22, 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
Where: Planned Parenthood, Burlington Village, 195 South Main Street, Suite 8, Longmont, CO
More Information: Call Teresa Dillon at 303-641-3677, 303-828-9566, or e-mail [email protected]
You may choose to be a part of this nationwide event and take a stand against the evil of abortion.
