Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Today’s responsorial psalm, Psalm 40, is more familiar to us with the refrain
“Here am I, Lord.” This “Here am I” is Jeremiah’s great prophetic response to
God’s call. But today’s story of Jeremiah and the refrain “Lord, come to my aid!”
remind us that there are always two sides to following the call of God. The author
of the Letter to the Hebrews knew this, too. He reminded his readers that even
weighted down with burdens and sins, we can still persevere by keeping our eyes
fixed on Jesus, who himself knew the shame and pain of the cross, but saw beyond it to the joy of sitting at the right of the throne of God.
Jesus himself gave the disciples a “sneak preview” of a baptism that would not
be as wondrous as the one in the Jordan that inaugurated his ministry, but would
be one of fire and anguish. Today’s words from scripture may not be terribly
soothing, but in their honesty and strength we can acknowledge the difficulties of
daily discipleship, and take comfort in the assurance of our own salvation in
Christ.

JUBILEE YEAR OF MERCY - WEEK BY WEEK
THIS WEEK AT ST. MARK’S
August 14, 2016 | Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
This Jubilee Year of Mercy bids
us share our own experience of Jesus' mercy with those on what
Pope Francis calls the
"peripheries"--people who
feel marginalized, even
unwelcome--inviting
them to come home. But
with all this mercy, why
today's mayhem? "Do
you think I have come to
establish peace on earth?
No, I tell you, but rather
division" (Luke 12:51). Jesus "breaks down" those
"breakups" in painful detail--parents,
children, even in-laws. "Against"
appears eight times in five verses.
Jeremiah faced death for bearing
witness (Jeremiah 38:4). Can't we
bear at least a small share of the
sometimes merciless cost of
sharing mercy? The Letter to
the Hebrews warns us, keep
your "eyes fixed on Jesus"
and "so great a cloud of
witnesses," lest we "grow
weary and lose heart" as
we run "the race that lies
before us" (Hebrews 12:13). After all, "for the sake
of the joy that lay before
him," Jesus "endured the
cross" (12:2). Can't we endure
our small crosses for the sake of
sharing mercy?

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
Long ago, a signet ring was an
essential part of the wardrobe of
influential people. A letter or document would be sealed with hot wax,
and a signet ring pressed into the
wax would affirm the origin of the
document. In the case of the pope, at
least from the thirteenth century, the
ring was used to seal public documents with hot lead, saving the red
wax for private letters. The public
documents were called bullae after
the Latin name for the lead stamp,
and we still call them “papal bulls.”
It is not surprising, therefore, that
a signet ring has long been bestowed
as part of the inauguration of a pope.
The ring is called the Pescatorio, or
“Ring of the Fisherman.” It reminds
the wearer of his link with Peter, and
his responsibility to continue the
apostolic ministry of “fishing for
human beings.” Until 1842 it actually functioned as a signet ring. Now,
each pope receives a new gold ring
at the beginning of his ministry. It
goes on the fourth finger of his right
hand and bears some fisherman design, usually St. Peter casting nets
from a boat, as well as the pope’s
name in Latin. A custom that endures for the pope, but not so much
for bishops, is for people being introduced to him to kiss the Pescatorio as a sign of respect for his teaching authority. Another enduring custom is for the ring to be smashed
and defaced at the pope’s death,
originally a way of preventing counterfeit deathbed documents.

SET THE WORLD ON FIRE
Occasionally we hear words from Jesus that do not fit the seemingly
typical message of ‘love your neighbor.’ Today Christ plainly says He
wants to set the world on fire and create division among peoples, even
among families. How do we reconcile a message of love and service with
today’s Gospel predicting divisions in households? God calls us so we
may gain eternal life. If anything or anyone hinders us on
our heaven-bound journey, we must turn our backs on the
world and choose heaven. May God’s word ignite a fire
within us and so enable us to answer the call to follow Jesus
and imitate his way of life.

Mercy is more than just forgiving
people; it is about considering the
needs of others and responding
to them in a loving and compassionate manner. It is a call to look
beyond ourselves to the way in
which we interact with the world
as Christians. Pope Francis encourages us to "return to the basics and to bear the weaknesses
and struggles of our brothers and
sisters. Mercy is the force that reawakens us to new life and instills in
us the courage to look to the future with hope" (MV, no. 10). We
have hope in our salvation by our
faith in Christ. However, not everyone shares in this hope, so we
need to spread this hope by becoming "merciful like the Father" (MV, no. 13).
1. Sometimes, having hope can be
challenging when we are faced
with difficulties in life. This month,
pray for someone who is going
through a difficult time, that they
might find hope and peace in
God.
2. Back to school time! Though it is
nice to have new clothes and
new supplies each year, consider
reusing what you already have.
Instead of buying new things for
yourself, use that money to buy
school supplies for those who are
in need. See if your local community already has a drive for
school supplies to donate to,
and if not, consider starting one.

A Stewardship
Prayer for August
My soul proclaims the greatness of the
Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.
For he has looked upon his handmaid’s
lowliness;
behold, from now on all ages will call me
blessed.
The mighty one has done great things for
me, and holy is his name.
His mercy is from age to age to those
who fear him.
He has shown might with his arm, dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart.
He has thrown down the rulers from their
thrones but lifted up the lowly.
The hungry he has filled with good
things; the rich he has sent away empty.
He has helped Israel his servant, remembering his mercy, according to his promise to our fathers, to Abraham and to his
descendants forever.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the
beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end.
Amen.

VISIONING & PLANNING COMMITTEE UPDATE
St. Mark’s Hoedown in the Hall was a great success!
Approximately 200 people from our
parish community came together on
Saturday night for St. Mark’s first ever
Hoedown in the Hall. If you
weren’t able to make it, you
really missed out!
This was our first parish
event in Aquinas Hall over
on West Campus. Everyone
will agree...it’s a great place
to have an event, and the
room looked amazing.
We extend a very special
thanks to Team #1 of the St.
Mark’s Visioning & Planning
Committee (Ed Garcia,
Sharron Hanson, Gary Richmond and
Velma Spruel Williams) for heading the
efforts for the Hoedown.
Of course, they could not have done it
without the help of the very many dedicated parishioners and volunteers that
spent lots of time and physical energy
to decorate the hall, help make all the
preparations, man the registration
tables and greet our wonderful
guests.
We look forward to building our parish community
through more events like the
Hoedown. Events like this
are more than just a party;
though they are fun, they
are great opportunities to
get to know one another
better and familiarize ourselves with new things going
on in the parish.
To view a slideshow from
Saturday night’s event and see all the
fun that was had, go to the St. Mark’s
website and click on the “Current
Events” tab.
If you are interested in having a
future event in Aquinas Hall, contact

Society of
St. Vincent de Paul
“On the journey of life, we must make
choice. Our instincts, our selfishness, our
pride will often suggest to us to follow
them. It is an easier road. But Christ, his
Church and our consciences suggest another way. To follow that road, we must say
no to our natural instincts. It may be difficult and demand much effort, but that effort will bring with it a peace and contentment that money will not buy.” (McCullen,
Deep Down Things, p. 589)

Back to School
Do you remember the excitement
of the first day of school?
Many children living in poverty spend that
special day at home to avoid the embarrassment of wearing worn-out clothes and being
without the required school supplies.
Daughters of Charity Services of San Antonio
have been advocates for the less fortunate
with the Back to School Program since 1995.
Please be part of this wonderful tradition by
participating in the A dopt-a-Child Back to
School Program. Monetary donations are
accepted, or you can shop for a particular
child.
Call (210)-334-2300 for more information.
New shoes..........................................$25-$50
New clothing….................................$60-$100
School supplies…................................$40-$80

The Gods of ATHEISM
August 19-21
Hyatt Regency Country Resort & Spa
We live in a culture gripped by atheism,
humanism and secularism, and Catholics, both young and old, are being seduced and led astray. Atheism must be
regarded as one of the most serious
problems of our time. Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller, Fr. Mitch Pacwa,
Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio, Sr. Miriam
James and Vatican endorsed demonologist, Adam Blai will help us plumb
the depths of this all-important attack
on faith and religion. We will learn how
Catholics can remain entrenched in the
fullness of truth and not reject the crucial bond between man and God. Enliven your Catholic faith and come enjoy
the rustic oasis of the Hyatt resort. For
tickets, hotel accommodations with
discounted room rates and more details, visit www.FullnessOfTruth.org or

Vigésimo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
EL COSTO DE SER DISCÍPULO
El Salmo responsorial de hoy, Salmo 40 (39), nos es muy familiar
por el refrán “Señor, date prisa en socorrerme”. La historia de Jeremías hoy y el refrán “¡Señor, date prisa en socorrerme!” nos recuerda
que siempre hay dos caminos para seguir el llamado de Dios. El autor de la Carta a los Hebreos también lo sabía. Él recordaba a sus
lectores que aunque nos agobien desgracias y pecados, podemos
todavía perseverar si mantenemos nuestros ojos fijos en Jesús, quien
también conoció la vergüenza y el dolor de la cruz, pero vio más allá
del sufrimiento, el gozo de sentarse a la derecha del trono de Dios.
Jesús mismo dio a sus discípulos una “idea” de un bautismo que no
sería tan maravilloso como el del Jordán que inauguró su ministerio,
sino de fuego y angustia. Las palabras de la Sagrada Escritura hoy
pueden no ser terriblemente apaciguadoras, pero en su honestidad y
fortaleza podemos reconocer las dificultades que el discípulo enfrenta a
diario, y consolarnos por la seguridad de nuestra salvación en Cristo.

Lecturas de Hoy
Primera lectura — El profeta del Señor sufre peligros y deshonra para proclamar el no grato mensaje de Dios para la ciudad (Jeremías 38:4-6, 8-10).
Salmo — Señor, date prisa en socorrerme! (Salmo 40 [39])
Segunda lectura — No te desanimes. Persevera en la lucha
igual que Cristo soportó la cruz (Hebreos 12:1-4).
Evangelio — Jesús vino a purificar la tierra con su santo fuego
y a sembrar división y no paz (Lucas 12:49-53).

Tan Pronto uno Escoge Ser Discípulo de Cristo,
el Compartir ya no es opción
Ocasionalmente escuchamos palabras de Jesús que no necesariamente se refieren al mensaje típico de “amar al prójimo.” Hoy Cristo
claramente dice que El quiere tener al mundo en fuego y crear una
división entre la gente y las familias. ¿Cómo es que correlacionamos
un mensaje de amor y servicio con el Evangelio de hoy que predica la
división entre hogares? Dios nos llama a ganarnos la vida eterna. Si
alguien o algo nos dificulta el camino hacia el cielo, necesitamos alejarnos de lo mundano y debemos escoger el cielo. Que la palabra de
Dios nos encienda el fuego que habita en nosotros y nos haga responder al llamado de seguir a Jesús e imitar su estilo de vida.

Este Año Jubilar de la Misericordia nos invita a llevar
nuestra propia experiencia de la misericordia
de Jesús hacia las
"periferias" --así lo llama el
Papa Francisco--, las personas marginadas, incluyendo a personas que
juzgamos desagradables,
invitándolas a que
vengan a casa. Pero con
toda esta misericordia,
¿por qué el caos de hoy
día? "¿Piensan acaso que
he venido a traer la paz a la tierra? De ningún modo. No
he venido a traer la paz,
sino la división (Lucas
12:51). Jesús va dando
ejemplos de esas
"divisiones" en detalles dolorosos para padres, hijos,
suegros, suegras, nueras,
yernos. Una palabra a
considerar es "división". Jeremías estuvo a punto de
morir por dar testimonio
(Jeremías 38:4). ¿No podemos nosotros al menos
asumir una pequeña parte de
lo que a veces despiadadamente cuesta compartir misericordia? La carta a los hebreos
nos advierte mantener "fija la
mirada en Jesús" y de quienes
"dieron prueba de su fe", para
que "no se cansen ni pierdan la
ánimo" mientras corremos "la
carrera que tenemos por
delante" (Hebreos 12:1-3). ¿No
podemos llevar a cuestas nuestras pequeñas cruces por el
bien de compartir misericordia?
