Letter From The Pastor
Ah, the lazy, hazy days of summer — since we’re in Houston I should say hot,
humid and sweaty days of summer as well. Most of our children are out of school, many
at camps or special school for summer. Some of our older teens have a job of some sort,
but many are at home, a lot. Of course, they spend a good amount of time reading and
relaxing with their siblings.
I fear, however, this may not be the case. I have heard from reliable sources that
children tend to sleep late many days, do not spend much time reading, watch too much
TV and spend too much time in the Inter-net.
An editorial in the May 15, 2016 edition of Our Sunday Visitor commented on
this growing problem.
According to statistics, provide by Covenant Eyes, a Christian based internet filtering system, the
average age of first exposure of young boys to pornography is 11 to 12 years old. On average 83%
of boys and 57% of girls have viewed group sex online. With the highly addictive quality of
pornography and its ready availability, parents can no longer afford to wait to address this topic
with their children even as young as 11.
Last fall, the U.S. Bishops issued the pastoral letter Create in Me a Clean Heat: A Pastoral
Response to Pornography (http://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/human-life-and-dignity/
pornography/index.cfm) in which they issued a call to action to all people of good will seeking
combat the surge. “May we work together for laws and for a culture that remove pornography from
its prominent and privileged place and counter its numerous injustices,” they wrote, “building
instead a culture that honors the true dignity and meaning of human sexuality.”
One of the tasks as educators, parents, pastors, etc. is to help protect our children from the enemy(s) who
desire to harm our children. It behooves us to be very proactive in the area of modern communications. I urge all
to be more knowledgeable about this issue. IPS Institute for the Psychological Sciences, a Catholic school of
psychology has an online brief paper, Pornicious – The Impact of Pornography on Children and Families, by Fr.
Charles Sikorshy that has several resources and endnotes for further study. I am a supporter of Convenant Eyes
(www.covenanteyes.com) as a filtering and monitoring family service. Covenant Eyes has several online books
with many ideas and education.
Other online sites that are helpful are www.theporneffect.com and www.reclaimsexualhealth.com. A
local Catholic service, Gratia Plena (full if grace) conducts professionally facilitated support groups — King
David’s Men (Catholic adults, sexual integrity) and King David’s Young Men (Catholic tens, sexual identity).
You can contact them at 832.532.0129. You can find a Catholic therapist online at www.catholictherapists.com.
In a future column, I will address the emerging issue of “gender identity” vs “gender reality.”
These are not easy issues to discuss partly because they are emerging topics not talked about in years past; partly
because of the emotions involve especially with loved family members involved; partly because of fear and a
lack of knowledge. But discuss them we must.
I urge all parents to check regularly the history of your children’s sites visited on their computers, iPad,
phones, etc. If your child decides to block your ability to view the pictures, texts, etc., they should lose the
privilege to have those devices. Truth be told, sometimes we must protect children from themselves. There are
several program additions you can put on a cell phone (restrictions, times of use, blocked numbers, etc.) which
you can add to help you guide your child.
The enemy is at the door — is already past the door and in the house. Vigilance is needed more now
than in the past. Modernity does not always walk the path of right and justice. Praise be God who has given us a
job of being a protector.

As we hear the Gospel today we realize
that sometimes we are like Simon as it’s
far easier to see what is wrong in another
than it is to see what is wrong in ourselves. But Jesus,
who accepts the poor woman without judging or
blaming her, shows us what Christian love is all

work; far greater than you think. The coins placed in

HOW IS GOD, IN HIS INFINITE
LOVE, CALLING YOU?
Fr. Larry Richards is a pretty brash guy, so brash in fact
that a member of his congregation left a copy of “The
Art of Kindness” on his doorstep. By Fr. Larry’s account, God says “no,” to him rather frequently, so perhaps Fr. Larry is a good resource on discernment after
all. The good father urges us to pray, pray, pray – and
to make a fixed place for Jesus in our day. He encourages us to set aside a place for our Lord in our homes
with a Bible, statue or crucifix. Every time we pass this
special place, he explains, Jesus will call to us and ask
us to spend just a few moments with Him. Only after
we’ve begun to talk to God deeply in prayer, can we
begin to understand the rightness or wrongness of the
choices we make. The choices which embrace God’s
plan for us make us more loving; sadly we often make
choices which have exactly the opposite outcome.
Perhaps Fr. Larry never finished reading “The Art of
Kindness,” but after listening to this brusque priest, you
too may be convinced to climb onto Jesus’ lap and lay
your troubled heart against His in repose.
Father’s Day Cards are available through this
weekend at the entrances to the church. The names

Dear Parish Blood Donors,
Our next parish blood drive is Sunday, June 26, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
Please take the time to give blood that day, it is so important.
Thank you for your support of the parish blood drives over the years. Your support is the
reason for my apology today. At recent blood drives, potential donors have had some very long waits; some donors
even left. I am sorry for this and hope that you will give the blood drive at our parish another chance to improve
I have discussed the waiting time with the Gulf Coast Blood Center and we realize that better blood drive planning
to assure adequate staffing is a key factor.
As blood donors, we can be a part of the solution. I encourage blood donors and potential donors to do the following which can allow for more effective planning:
Make an appointment to give blood whenever possible. Appointments help to improve planning. You can make
an appointment at the following link: https://www.commitforlife.org/donor/schedules/sponsor_code and use Sponsor Code 0014. If you need assistance making an appointment, feel free to call or e-mail at
[email protected] or call 713-665-0086. All donors with appointments go to the head of the line. If you
can’t be exactly on-time for your appointment, we still honor it.
Once established as a donor, check in to the drive through CFL Express. CFLexpress is a Commit for
Life benefit that allows donors to save time at the donation site by doing health history interview before the
drive. IMPORTANT: Your CFLexpress ticket is only valid for a donation on the same calendar day you
complete the interview and print the ticket.
If you haven’t made an appointment, we still want you to come and give blood. Walk-ins are always welcome. Come at a time that is less busy for the drive. Usually, that is right at the start of the drive (8:00-8:15
a.m.) or during a Mass. We tend to have longer lines after the 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. Masses. If you come
before a Mass, you’ll need about an hour to complete the screening and donation before attending Mass.
Please take the time to give us feedback. Moving forward, the blood drive volunteers are going to pass out
cards soliciting your feedback on the blood drives.
Again, thank you for supporting the parish blood drive and the thousands of people who need your help every day.
If you have any questions or comments for me, please feel free to contact me.
God bless you,
Mary Ann Beachler, Parish Blood Drive Co-Chairperson

Undécimo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
Había algunas concepciones interesantes sobre el pecado que prevalecían en la época de las Escrituras hebreas.
Estaba la creencia de que Dios castigaba inmediatamente el pecado. Los que sufrían alguna enfermedad o desgracia eran, por lo tanto, pecadores que recibían su merecido del Todopoderoso.
La primera lectura de hoy nos muestra a otro tipo de Dios. Cuando David admite su pecado, Natán declara: "El
Señor te perdona tu pecado" (2 Samuel 12:13b). Aquí no hay un Dios vengativo sino un Dios misericordioso.
¡Qué buena nueva debe haber sido eso para David y para los que, como él, eran lo suficientemente honestos como
para admitir su pecado!
Jesús es la buena nueva de la misericordia y el perdón de Dios hecho carne. Sin Jesús, quizás la buena nueva
hubiera sido demasiado buena como para creerla, demasiado difícil de imaginar. Pero allí está en el Evangelio de
hoy, el Dios-hombre, perdonando a una pecadora y declarando que está perdonada debido a su gran amor.
¡Hay esperanza, entonces, para el resto de nosotros pecadores, si tan sólo amamos lo suficiente!

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
En 1910, cuatro años antes de iniciar el Día de las
Madres, el pueblo de Estados Unidos empezó a celebrar
ocasionalmente un día para los padres de familia. Pero,
no fue hasta 1972 que se fijó un día oficial para el papá.
Poco a poco esta fecha del segundo domingo de junio se
ha ido expandiendo al resto del mundo con algunas excepciones. En Italia por ejemplo, la fiesta del padre se
celebra el 19 de marzo, día de san José.
Durante la Revolución Industrial del siglo diecinueve,
José, esposo de María recibió su primera fiesta oficial.
La Iglesia, preocupada por el ingreso del padre a las
fábricas, propuso a este santo varón como ejemplo de lo
que los padres deben ser en la vida de sus hijos e hijas;
ejemplos de fe, ternura y trabajo. Aún en nuestro tiempo, el Rito del Bautismo de niños insiste que el padre,
junto con la madre, deben ser los mayores maestros de
sus hijos. Al igual que José, el papá debe cuidar y
proteger a su familia, enseñarle a los niños a trabajar y
ser honestos para el bien de la familia y la sociedad.

actividades sociales que nos permitan crecer en comunidad buscando imitar el ejemplo de Jesús y las virtudes de nuestra Madre María. Como jóvenes adultos, nos esforzamos en ser
luz siendo testigos de nuestra fe y así dar a conocer el
mensaje del Reino de Dios desde nuestra vida cotidiana.
Nos reunimos todos los jueves a las 7:00 PM en el segundo piso del centro parroquial. Si desean agregarse a
nuestra lista de
contactos para recibir información acerca de nuestros
eventos, pueden enviarnos un correo a
