Gospel Meditation
Jesus continues to stress the seriousness of true discipleship. In today’s Gospel, Jesus attempts to give a wakeup call to his followers.
Jesus wants us to give ourselves entirely to him. To hold onto or seek
anything more than God can be seen as idolatry. What possessions or
relationships prevent us from offering ourselves completely to God?
Jesús continúa poniendo énfasis en la seriedad del verdadero discipulado. En el Evangelio de hoy, Jesús trata de despertar a sus seguidores. Jesús quiere que nos entreguemos por completo a Él. Aferrarnos o buscar algo más que a Dios puede ser visto como idolatría ¿Qué
posesiones o relaciones nos impiden ofrecernos a nosotros mismos
por completo a Dios?
With Deacon Bill Hobby
Saturday, Sept 10 at 9:00 a.m.
Parish Hall
“God of peace, bring your peace to our violent world…
Comfort and console us, strengthen us in hope,
and give us the wisdom and courage
to work tirelessly for a world
where true peace and love reign.”
— Pope Francis, “Prayer of Remembrance”
“Dios de la paz, concede tu paz a nuestro violento mundo:…
Confórtanos y consuélanos, fortalécenos en la esperanza,
y danos la sabiduría y el coraje
para trabajar incansablemente por un mundo
en el que la verdadera paz y el amor reinen”.
— Papa Francisco, “Oración conmemorativa”
Feature for September: Mother Teresa
Mother Teresa will become a saint on September 4th. She was known as the "saint of the
gutter" for her tireless work and unconditional
love for the poor and abandoned. This month we honor and celebrate
her dedication to Catholic Social Teaching and her witness to the gospel of life.
"May we never forget that in the service to the poor we are offered a
magnificent opportunity to do something beautiful for God."
- Blessed Mother Teresa
At the request of the U.S. Conference of Catholic
Bishops all parishes in the Diocese of Austin are
asked to take up a special collection to aid the victims of the 2016 Louisiana floods. The money collected the weekend of Sept. 17-18 will be used to support the humanitarian efforts of Catholic Charities USA and to provide pastoral and
rebuilding support to the dioceses with flood damage. For more information, visit
23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
How much are we willing to give up to be a follower of
Jesus? In the Gospel, Jesus asks us to let go of everything
important and dear to us: family, friends, possessions, position and even our very selves. Have we calculated the cost of
discipleship? Philemon in the second reading had to give up
social status in order to receive his runaway slave as a brother
as Paul asked. Do we accept as brothers and sisters those
whom society rejects because of Christ? How do we live that
23ro Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
¿A cuánto estamos dispuestos a renunciar para ser seguidores de Jesús? En el Evangelio, Jesús nos pide que dejemos
ir todo lo importante y querido para nosotros: familia, amigos, posesiones, posición e incluso nuestro propio ser
¿Hemos calculado el precio del discipulado? Filemón en la
segunda lectura tuvo que renunciar a su estatus social para
poder recibir a su esclavo fugitivo como hermano, tal como
Pablo había pedido ¿Nosotros aceptamos como hermanos y
hermanas a aquellos cuya sociedad rechaza por Cristo?
¿Cómo vivimos esto?
Volunteer for the month of July
Congrats to our July nominee, Debbie Baldwin. We apologize for delay in this announcement but we wanted to make sure Father Ramiro had time to review nominees after he returned from his trip.
Debbie is being recognized for several ministries that she is involved in including Extraordinary minister,
nursing home service, and lector. She never hesitates to volunteer wherever needed. Debbie and her team did an outstanding job on the new directory. They put in countless volunteer hours preparing and organizing as well as working
several hours and nights of checking in folks for their pictures. We are so grateful and proud of our new directory. It
truly shows how active this parish is and has allowed us to
reconnect with other members as well as be very useful for
outreach. Congrats Debbie!
Felicidades a nuestra candidata del mes de Julio, Debbie
Baldwin. Nos disculpamos por la demora en este anuncio,
