JACKPOT
In our lottery- and sweepstakes-obsessed culture,
it is common to ask ourselves or others what they
would do if they won. In today’s first reading,
Solomon certainly hits the jackpot. What prize
could be greater than having God Almighty agree
to give you whatever you ask for? Out of all the
things he could have asked for, Solomon chose to
ask for understanding, and was rewarded with it.
We would do well to wonder what we would ask
for if God made us the same offer. Actually God
does make us the same offer each and every day, by granting us
another day of life, a bit of the earth’s goods, some gift or ability,
some call to goodness, some portion of the divine will. Each of
these is a “prize.” We should stop and examine what we are going
to do with our prize: keep it or use it selfishly, or put it at the service
of the spread of the gospel? Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
$2,794.39
following scenario: What if I encountered a genie
that granted me one wish? What would be my
one request of the genie? Should I ask for a
$1,000,000? But before long I might spend it all
and then what? I would be back to where
I started! After years of pondering this scenario
I came up with the perfect answer: I would wish, “that every request
that I make for all time would be granted.”
As far-fetched as that scenario appears to be, the Scriptures are filled
with “genie” moments today. In the Book of Kings, we hear of how God
appears to Solomon in a dream and then says to him, “Ask something
of me and I will grant it.” Here is Solomon’s big chance to tell God his
request is that God will grant all of his requests for all time. Instead,
Solomon asks for a wise and an understanding heart so that he can
distinguish between right and wrong in his role as king of the people of
Israel.
What would we do in Solomon’s situation? How many of us would ask
to receive the reign of God? The treasure of knowing that we belong to
God, that we are cherished and cared for. A treasure that feeds our
hungers and satisfies our thirsts. A treasure that excites us like a child
at Christmas or a bride on the morning of her wedding. A treasure that
is the fulfillment of our deepest desires and our fondest hopes. Like
the person in the Gospel story who just happens to come upon the
treasure buried in a field and then with great joy sacrifices everything to
attain it, the reign of God is not something that we earn, rather it is a
gift from God given for all time. It is ours for the finding.

WE GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR
CONTINUED GENEROSITY!
As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one
another as good stewards of God's varied grace.
1 Peter 4:10
A profound stewardship prayer is offered by the young king Solomon
in today’s first reading. He asks the Lord to give him an understanding
heart, compassion towards God’s people and the insight to distinguish
right from wrong. An understanding heart, or wisdom, is a gift from
God. It is a gift that enables us to make good decisions and prudent
choices. Cultivating and sharing this gift is essential, especially when
poor decisions and lack of compassion have consequences that affect
the lives of others. Do we exercise good stewardship over the gift of
wisdom? Do we share our compassionate hearts with others?

Statement of California Bishops on the Transport of Displaced Migrant
Children and Families to California
In recent days, the people of our state have witnessed the arrival of hundreds of displaced people,
mostly women and children, to various locations in Southern California. The Bishops of California
wish to express our solidarity with these immigrant brothers and sisters who are coming to our
state and to offer our prayer that God will deliver them to the safe environment they seek. We also
recognize our responsibility as a Church of compassion to come to their aid and help provide them
with the practical and pastoral support they so need.
These children and families have journeyed to our country, fleeing violence and destitution in Central America. Sadly,
their experience in California has thus far been marked by hostility and near chaos. They are exhausted, afraid and
clinging to hope. The gravity of this situation transcends politics; it is truly a humanitarian crisis that calls all of us,
Catholics and others of good will, to respond with compassion and with urgent action.
The response of Catholic agencies and other community-based groups has already begun. Catholic Charities, working
in collaboration with directly affected dioceses and other service organizations, is mobilizing to help these immigrants
in centers of hospitality and assistance. Many individuals have contacted our parishes and social service agencies
asking how they can help. This reflects the best of the American spirit. We are particularly concerned about the safety
and security of the thousands of unaccompanied children that have crossed our border, without a parent or guardian
and without family ties to the US. They desperately need our help. Federal officials believe that groups of migrants
will continue to arrive throughout the summer. The most affected dioceses will be asking parishioners and others for
donations of time and money. We ask you to respond to this call. In this critical moment, Jesus’ parable of the Good
Samaritan reminds us of what we are called to do. Federal, state and local government agencies also have a role to play
in responding to this heartbreaking situation. We urge Congress to appropriate the resources necessary to care for
unaccompanied children. We also urge opposition to the “fast track authority” requested by the Administration that
could send children back to the violence they attempted to flee without a proper hearing—and in violation of their
rights. We recognize the passion surrounding this issue. We call on all Californians of good will to express themselves
with civility and respect, and to refrain from violence. We ask the Catholic community to join together in solidarity
with these children of God, our brothers and sisters, to provide help and give them hope.
Most Reverend Bishop Armando X. Ochoa’s Statement
It is of the most importance to understand the difference between the political agendas and the challenges associated
with migration in general and the urgent needs of this particular movement of unattended refugee children and
families. This is a “humanitarian crisis” As people of faith, we need to create a bridge of compassion for these children
and families who are “exhausted, afraid and clinging to hope.” A designated account has been established by our
Diocese to receive funds contributed by our faithful. These funds will be sent to the most affected dioceses that are
bearing the financial responsibility in caring for our vulnerable brothers and sisters. Please make checks payable to the
Diocese of Fresno: Emergency Relief for Displaces Children and Minors.
Thank you for your attention to this great need. “ The gravity of this situation transcends politics; it is truly a
humanitarian crisis that calls all of us, Catholics and others of good will, to respond with compassion and with urgent
action.” Most Reverend A rmando X . Ochoa, D.D. Bishop of Fresno

ADULT CONFIRMATION:

NOW is a GREAT time to start with the formation process. If you have
questions regarding RCIA or English Adult Confirmation call Martha for

When I read today’s Gospel, the thing that
stands out to me most is finding
“treasure.” The treasure is so good and
complete that the finder doesn’t need
anything else. If the treasure is the
kingdom of heaven – it makes me question
if I value heaven that much. Sometimes
I am focused on what I have now, like the
latest basketball sneakers or cell phone.
This Gospel reminds me that as long as
I have the promise of heaven, I have
everything I need. The other thing from
this Gospel that stands out to me is that
when these people find this treasure their
first thought is not to tell the world and
share the gift but they hide it and then buy
the land so that it is theirs and theirs only.
It makes me think, am I sharing the gifts
that I’ve been given or am I actively trying
to keep them to myself?

EL GRAN PREMIO
En nuestra lotería – y en las muchas rifas de
nuestra cultura – se tiene la costumbre de
preguntarnos a nosotros mismos y de
preguntarles a los demás qué haríamos si
ganamos. En la primera lectura de hoy, Salomón
ciertamente se gana el premio mayor. ¿Qué
premio podrá ser más grande que tener a Dios
todopoderoso ofrecerte lo que quieras? De todas
las cosas que podemos pedir, Salomón escogió pedir sabiduría y le
fue concedida. ¿No sería bueno preguntarnos que pediríamos si
Dios nos hiciera esa oferta? En realidad Dios nos hace esa misma
oferta cada día, al darnos otro día de vida, un poco de los bienes de
la tierra, algún don o talento, un llamado a la bondad, algo de la
voluntad divina. Cada uno de esos bienes es un “premio”. Debemos
detenernos y examinar lo que vamos a hacer con nuestro premio:
¿guardarlo o usarlo con egoísmo, o ponerlo al servicio de la
proclamación del Evangelio? Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

Declaración de los Obispos de California sobre el Transporte de
Familias y Niños Migrantes Desplazados en California
En días recientes, la gente de nuestro estado ha sido testigo de la llegada de cientos de personas, la
mayoría quienes son mujeres y niños, a varios lugares en el sur de California. Los obispos de
California brindamos nuestra solidaridad con nuestros hermanos y hermanas migrantes quienes están
llegando a nuestro estado y ofrecemos una oración que Dios los hará llegar al ambiente seguro que
ellos buscan. También reconocemos nuestra responsabilidad como iglesia de compasión para
asistirles y proveerles el apoyo práctico y pastoral que tanto necesitan. Estos niños y familias han tenido una larga jornada
a nuestro país, huyendo de la violencia y destitución en Centro América. Desgraciadamente, su experiencia aquí en
California hasta el momento ha sido marcada por hostilidad y caos. Ellos están cansados, asustados, y aferrados a la
esperanza. La gravedad de esta situación sobrepasa a la política; es realmente una crisis humanitaria que nos llama a
todos nosotros, Católicos y personas de buena voluntad, a responder con compasión y con acción inmediata.
La respuesta de las agencias Católicas y otros grupos comunitarios ya ha empezado. Caridades Católicas, en colaboración
con esas diócesis directamente afectadas y otras organizaciones serviciales, está movilizando para ayudar a estos
inmigrantes en los centros de hospitalidad y asistencia. Muchos individuos han contactado a nuestras parroquias y
agencias de servicios sociales ofreciendo su ayuda. Esto refleja lo mejor del espíritu Americano. Estamos sumamente
preocupados sobre el bienestar y la seguridad de miles de niños desacompañados quienes han cruzado la frontera, sin un
padre o guardián y sin ningún familiar aquí en los EE.UU. Ellos necesitan desesperadamente de nuestra ayuda. Los
oficiales federales creen que grupos de migrantes continuarán a llegar a lo largo del verano. Las diócesis más afectadas les
pedirán a los feligreses y a otros que donen su tiempo y dinero hacia esta causa. Les pedimos a Uds. que respondan a este
llamado. En este momento crítico, la parábola de Jesús que habla sobre el Buen Samaritano nos recuerda de los que
estamos llamados a hacer. Las agencias federales, estatales, y locales también desarrollan un papel en responder a esta
situación dolorosa. Le urgimos al Congreso que provea los recursos necesarios para cuidar de los niños desacompañados.
También le pedimos oposición al pedido de la Administración que aprueba la autoridad de trayectoria rápida (referido en
inglés como “fast track authority”), la cual podría mandar a los niños de regreso a la violencia de la que ellos mismos
huían sin una audiencia apropiada – y que está en violación de sus derechos humanos. Reconocemos la pasión que rodea
este tema. Le pedimos a todo californiano de buena voluntad que se exprese con civilidad y respeto, y que se abstenga de
violencia. Le pedimos a la comunidad Católica que se una en solidaridad con estos niños de Dios, nuestros hermanos y
hermanas, y que les brinden su ayuda y esperanza.
Declaración de nuestro Obispo Armando X. Ochoa
Es de mayor importancia entender la diferencia entre las agendas políticas y los desafíos asociados con la migración
particular y en general las necesidades urgentes de este movimiento de los niños refugiados desatendidos y familias. Esto es
una "crisis humanitaria" como personas de fe, necesitamos crear un puente de compasión por estos niños y las familias que
están "agotadas, con miedo y aferrados a la esperanza". Se ha establecido una cuenta designada por nuestra diócesis para
recibir fondos aportados por los fieles. Estos fondos se enviarán a las diócesis más afectadas que están dando la
responsabilidad financiera en el cuidado de nuestros hermanos y hermanas vulnerables. Por favor haga los cheques
pagaderos a la diócesis de Fresno: Emergency Relief for Displaces Children and Minors.
Gracias por su atención a esta gran necesidad. "La gravedad de esta situación trasciende la política; realmente es una crisis
humanitaria que llama a todos nosotros, los católicos y otros de buena voluntad, para responder con compasión y con
medidas urgentes". Reverendísimo Obispo Armando X. Ochoa, D.D.

Saints of Summer:
Saint Elizabeth of Portugal
Saint Elizabeth was related to kings, queens,
emperors, and a saint! She was the daughter
of the king and queen of Aragon, a land now
part of Spain. One grandfather was the king of
Sicily, and the other was an emperor. She was
named after her great-aunt, Saint Elizabeth of
Hungary, another queen who was a saint.
These connections did not guarantee that she
would be a great queen or a saint. She
became both.
Elizabeth married Dinis, the king
of Portugal. The couple ruled
wisely and well. They worked to
improve the lives of their
subjects. They provided
education, justice, and
protection for the people in their kingdom. Elizabeth supervised the
building of hospitals, orphanages and churches. She also worked
among the poor and sick, often feeding or caring for them. As a
result, the people dearly loved their king and queen.
Saint Elizabeth of Portugal devoted her life to maintaining peace in
her kingdom. She tried to change the minds and hearts of others by
showing the joy she received from serving God. She saw her role
as queen as an opportunity to share the love and care of God with
others.
