Year of Mercy
Lighthouse CD Spotlight
“It often seems that we have been appointed judges of others:
gossiping, criticizing, we judge everyone. But Jesus tells us:
'Judge not and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you
will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven.' And
so, we say it every day in the Our Father: 'forgive us as we
forgive'. If I do not first forgive, how can I ask the Father to
forgive me? There is also another really beautiful image in the
Gospel reading: 'Give and it will be given to you.’”
— Pope Francis
World Youth Day in Krakow:
"Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy"
This week, the universal Church focuses in prayerful solidarity
on World Youth Day in Krakow, where WYD's founder, Saint
John Paul II, served as archbishop. Its theme coincides with that
of Pope Francis' Jubilee Year of Mercy: "Blessed are the
merciful, for they will be shown mercy" (Matthew 5:7). Today's
Gospel echoes the same theme, as Jesus unites prayer with
mercy in "The parable of the persistent friend." Jesus teaches us
not only what words to pray, but what deeds must match
authentic prayer. How beautifully down-to-earth is Jesus'
portrait of a God who can be trusted to do what is best for us. A
pesky neighbor disturbs a sleeping friend and disrupts the
household. Yet beautiful images unfold. Persevering prayer
receives active, practical mercy in loaves of bread, recalling
Luke's unique expression for the Eucharist, "the breaking of
bread" (Luke 24:35; Acts 2:42). WYD, the Jubilee, and Jesus
thus unite to define perfect prayer as persevering communion
with God and unconditional mercy toward our neighbor.

Ask. Seek. Knock. Do you know
someone who is just so relentless?
He tirelessly makes his point! She
keeps at it and does not back down.
They ask … and ask again … and
yet again! Abraham, the merciful
one, is just like that – reread of his
persistence in Genesis 18:20-32.
The friend is just like that, too, in
Luke 11:1-13. And Jesus tells all
who hear, and that is us today as well, be just like that in
addressing God. Ask. Seek. Knock. Few words, fewer
actions, great persistence.
† How will my prayer be persistent this week?
† For whom and for what will I pray?
† How can I respond like God and open my door (and my
heart), give food to the hungry, bargain for the innocent?
No Price Too High
In this stunning real-life
drama, discover the
sacrificial yet triumphant
journey of a man of deep
integrity and love for Christ.
Reverend Alex Jones
promised his congregation a
real New Testament worship
service. To prepare, he
studied the works of the early
Church Fathers. The
astonishing events that
followed culminated not only
in his conversion to the Catholic Faith, but also that of 42
members of his flock.
CD’s are available in the Gathering Space for $3.00each.
Reflecting on God’s Word
Be Careful What You Ask For
Jesus talks about praying for whatever we need with faith and
confidence, but he ends by asking, "How much more will the
Father . . . give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?"
(Luke 1:13). Is he saying there are limits to what we can ask
for? "Be careful what you ask for," the saying warns. Just
because we want something doesn't mean it will be good for us.
Remember the Indiana Jones movies? The artifact that the bad
guys were seeking usually turned out to be lethal. But if we
have enough faith to pray for something, we probably would
not pray for anything evil. So what is Jesus really saying? He is
giving us two lessons about prayer.
First, he assures us that God does hear our prayers and answers
them. Many people take "ask and you shall receive" so literally
that they expect God to do their bidding no matter what they
want. Prayers, however, are not a magical ritual that somehow
forces God to do our will. God is free to do what is best for us,
free to answer some prayers with a no when what we seek is
against God's will. So maybe our first prayer should be to ask
God to show us what we really need.
That leads us to the second lesson: prayer changes us, not God.
If we truly pray as Jesus prayed, we would ask for what we
need, adding, "Not as I will, but as you will" (Matthew 26:39).
If we pray humbly and are open to what God wills for us, we
will begin to see that what we really need most is actually God.
It's not easy to change our minds about what we want or need.
To change our desires from selfish to holy takes a lot of power,
the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus was raised from the dead by
that power and we will be, too (Romans 8:11). Mary conceived
by the power of the Spirit (Matthew 1:18). The bread and wine
of the Eucharist become the Body and Blood of Christ by the
Spirit's power. So when Jesus promises that the Father will give
the Spirit to us for the asking, the Spirit is both the source of
and the answer to our prayers. Let us ask the Spirit to empower
us to desire and pray for what we really need.

llena de misericordia. Dios sabe perdonar a los pecadores por
amor a los justos y, de ningún modo, es su intención que paguen una señal de una buena oración, de una fe y de una esperanza que
son don de Dios. Y si Dios nos concede ese modo de orar,
