Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
"You are the salt of the earth...you are the light of
the world." Being Christian is not supposed to be boring! On the contrary, Jesus gave us the mission to
bring flavor to the world, and to brighten things up
when they seem dark and dismal. What a misunderstanding it is to think that following Christ would ever
mean abandoning "the good life" or becoming dull servants of a rigid master. No, we are meant to be like
the salt that brings a delicious meal to perfection. We
are called to be the light that enables energy and activity. An authentic Christian is filled with life in the
truest sense, filled with the One who is "the way and
the truth and the life" (Jn 14:6).
Joy and gratitude are really meant to be at the heart
of the Christian experience. Our loving Father has
given us the gift of salvation and the hope of heaven as
free gifts. Because Christ has conquered sin and
death, we can exult with Easter joy all year long! This
is the good news we proclaim. It's not news that's
meant to be whispered in a private corner. Jesus tells
us to be a like a city set on a mountain, and a lamp
radiating light from a lampstand. We have a mission to
invigorate the world with the hope, the happiness, and
the fulfillment found in Christ.
Jesus said that we are in fact salt and light. The
question is only whether we will "lose our taste." That
of course is up to us. If we let our faith in the good
news fade, we are bound to grow dull. But when we
remain rooted in Christ, we will truly be able to let
our light shine.
Silent Retreat

February 9, 2014
I want to give an update on the exciting developments
in the liturgical formation we offer both our girls and
our boys. The numbers tell a good story. Before the
changes I instituted with altar serving our parish records show there were a total of 62 altar servers (36
boys; 26 girls). With the new altar boy program that
began last October we had 32 boys continue serving
and receive training for our new procedures. Added
to that we have 21 new boys trained who had never
previously been altar boys. That gives us presently a
total of 53 altar boys.
Another great sign of the vitality of our parish is the
response of our girls and young ladies to training as
lectors and sacristans. At our recent training we had
a total of 33 girls present. Of that group a high
number had never before been involved in any liturgical service.
Over the history of our parish our kids and youth
have always been excited to serve in various ways. I
give much credit to you parents for this! With a total of 86 girls and boys involved, we can rejoice
that we now have more kids than ever involved in
service at the Holy Mass, which is our most important
work as a parish and as disciples. I pray and expect
that these distinct areas of service for our youth will
strengthen their identities as young Christian women
and men as they serve and socialize in their respective
groups. I pray and expect that these distinct areas of

We are most grateful to the loyal donors and all

Catholic Foundation Scholarships Available
The 2014-2015 Catholic Foundation of Oklahoma
Scholarship Applications are now available. The
Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
service will also contribute to a more effective promotion of the priestly vocation for our young men,
and a more effective promotion of the religious life
for our young women. Pope Francis at his Angelus
address last Sunday said: “Think of a Church without
nuns! It is unthinkable: these women are the gift, that
leaven that carries the People of God forward!
(Translation mine from the Italian original).” But I ask,
where are they? We need more young women to
respond to religious and consecrated life! The
Church suffers when we do not have this indispensable feminine witness. And considering our need for
priests for the Sacraments, we must do everything we
can to promote unambiguously this service for our
young men. Finally the above numbers I have shared
do not even touch upon the number of youth who
are very active with their talent in our choirs and
youth orchestra. We are truly blessed! I look forward to still more girls and boys becoming involved in
our liturgical formation programs. And I know our
choirs are always happy to have more youth involved.
The spirit among these groups of our girls and boys is
clearly contagious!
Sincerely in Christ
Rev. Stephen Hamilton

Parish Mission Statement
The mission of St. Monica
Catholic Church is to spread the
Gospel of Jesus Christ. Rooted in
Scripture and our Catholic
Tradition, and nurtured by the
Sacraments, we will strive to
instill hope in the hearts of the
hopeless, to encourage trust in
God for those who are searching
for peace, and to build a loving faith community to
help one another along life's journey.

Lighthouse Catholic Media Highlighted CDs
The Hidden Power of Forgiveness: Jeff Cavins unmasks
the trap of unforgiveness that prevents so many from
living in the freedom of God's peace and halts spiritual
progress. He explains with clarity how forgiveness
frees not only the one who is forgiven, but the forgiver. The importance of this is shown in Christ's
words - "As you forgive others, so I will forgive you."
Which Came First, the Bible or the Church? Have
you ever been asked where Catholic beliefs can be
found in the Bible? Here is a crash course in history
proving that the Bible is a Catholic book. Matthew
Arnold offers convincing evidence showing that the
Church has faithfully proclaimed and preserved the
fullness of God's Word down through the centuries.

Monaguillos: Edgar Barcenas, Gilbert Velez, Miguel Esparza
5o domingo del tiempo ordinario
Tema: Todos somos llamados a ser hijos de la luz.
Apuntes de la Palabra
Texto sugerido para compartir la fe: El Evangelio de hoy
Paso uno: Escuchar la Palabra
¿Qué imágenes crean en su mente las palabras Luz y Sal?
Cuando escuchan y se imaginan esas cosas, ¿usan sus ojos y
sus papilas gustativas cuando las oyen?
Paso dos: Examinar su vida
Pregunta para los niños: ¿Qué pueden hacer para llevar la
luz de Jesús a la vida de sus familiares, amigos y personas
que conocen?
Pregunta para los jóvenes: ¿Cómo se sienten cuando Jesús
dice que USTEDES son la sal de la tierra y que USTEDES
son llamados a ser la luz de los demás?
Pregunta para los adultos: ¿Qué esfuerzos específicos han
tomado para mantener su luz? ¿Ustedes dejan que su luz se
apague? ¿Por qué?
Deseo ponerlos al día referente a los desarrollos emocionantes en la formación litúrgica que ofrecemos tanto a
nuestros niños y niñas. Los números nos dicen algo bueno.
Antes de los cambios que yo he instituido nuestros registros parroquiales muestran que teníamos 62 acólitos (36
varones; 26 niñas). Con el nuevo programa de monaguillos,
que comenzó el octubre pasado tenemos 32 varones que
continúan sirviendo y han sido entrenados con los procedimientos. Aumentando a esto tenemos 21 que son nuevos
y entrenados que nunca antes habían sido monaguillos.
Eso nos da en la actualidad un total de 53 monaguillos.
Otra gran signo de la vitalidad de nuestra parroquia es la
respuesta de nuestras niñas y jovencitas a la formación como lectores y sacristanes. En nuestra formación reciente,
tuvimos un total de 33 niñas presentes. Este es un grupo
numeroso que no habíamos tenido antes en ningún servicio litúrgico.
A través de la historia de nuestra parroquia nuestros niños,
niñas y jóvenes han estado siempre muy contentos de servir de diversas maneras. ¡Yo atribuyo esto a los padres de
familia! Con un total de 86 niñas y niños involucrados,
podemos regocijarnos de que ahora tenemos más jóvenes
que nunca habían participado en el servicio a la Santa Misa,
Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
que es nuestro trabajo más importante como parroquia y
como discípulos. Rezo y espero que estas distintas áreas
de servicio para nuestros jóvenes fortalezcan sus identidades de mujeres y hombres cristianos de tan sólo servir
y socializar en sus respectivos grupos. Al igual, rezo y
espero que estas distintas áreas de servicio también contribuirán a una promoción más eficaz a la vocación sacerdotal para nuestros jóvenes varones, y una promoción
más eficaz de la vida religiosa para nuestras jóvenes. El
Papa Francisco al dirigirse durante el Ángelus el domingo
pasado dijo: ¡"Piensen en una Iglesia sin monjas! ¡Es inconcebible: estas mujeres son el regalo, ellas ejercen
una influencia latente y poderosa que lleva al pueblo
de Dios hacia adelante!”
(Traducción mía del italiano original). Pero yo pregunto,
¿dónde están? ¡Necesitamos más mujeres jóvenes que
respondan a la vida religiosa y consagrada! La Iglesia sufre
cuando no tenemos este testimonio femenino indispensable. Y teniendo en cuenta nuestra necesidad de sacerdotes para los sacramentos, debemos hacer todo lo posible
para promover claramente este servicio para nuestros
jóvenes. Finalmente las cantidades anteriores que he
compartido ni siquiera tocan el número de jóvenes que
comparten su talento en nuestros coros y orquesta juvenil. ¡Estamos verdaderamente bendecidos! Espero que
aún más niños y niñas en participen en nuestros programas de formación litúrgica. Yo sé que nuestros coros
están siempre dispuestos a tener más jóvenes participantes . ¡El espíritu de estos grupos de nuestras niñas y niños es sin duda contagioso!
Sinceramente en Cristo, Padre Hamilton
Hoy iniciamos la Solicitud Anual Arquidiocesana del 2014

obras podrían ser realizadas con una participación completa! No importa lo pequeña que sea su ofrenda, cada
