Pentecost Sunday: May 15, 2016
“In one Spirit we are baptized into one body and given to drink of one Spirit” -1 Corinthians 12:3b-7
Reflection
Two years ago, during Rome’s quiet summer, Pope
Francis took a day off to visit privately with some old
friends, whose identity took Catholic Italy by surprise:
Evangelical Protestants. They welcomed Francis to their
Pentecostal Church of Reconciliation, where Francis
asked pardon for Catholic persecutions and celebrated
the Holy Spirit’s “pentecostal work.” Unlike Satan, declared Francis, who creates division among God’s children, the Holy Spirit creates a diversity rich and beautiful. And unity; not uniformity, Francis specified, but unity in diversity. Francis named the Spirit’s gift
“reconciled diversity.” Pentecost’s rich treasury of scriptural readings, for Saturday’s vigil and Sunday’s morning liturgy, traces the Holy Spirit’s work from creation’s
beginning, through Jesus’ resurrection, into the
church’s earliest days, now into our days. Kindled in our
hearts, the Spirit’s gentle fire is ours to share generously, even with those most strikingly different from us. All
hearts are Spirit-warmed by reconciled diversity.
MONTH OF MAY DEDICATED TO PRAYING THE ROSARY TO THE VIRGIN MARY
The Guadalupana Society of Good Shepherd Catholic

the following schedule:
May 16-20 in Saint Thomas Church

You are encouraged to bring flowers from your garden
so that the small children may offer them to our Blessed
Mother.

Domingo de Pentecostés: 15 de Mayo de 2016
“Fuimos bautizados en el Espíritu para formar un sólo cuerpo” -1 Corintios 12:3b-7
Reflexión
El inicio de la Pascua comienza con una Vigilia rica en
narraciones de las Escrituras; Pentecostés corona los “Gran
Cincuentena Pascual” al iniciar la Vigilia de esta solemnidad
con lecturas del Antiguo Testamento que imaginan la
creatividad del Espíritu de Pentecostés. El libro del Génesis
muestra la unidad del lenguaje de Babel desintegrarse en
confusión y dispersión. El Espíritu de Pentecostés reconcilia la
variedad de idiomas, creando unidad en la fe en la diversidad.
El libro del Éxodo muestra a las personas temblando como el
viento y el fuego acompañando los mandamientos de Dios.
Las lenguas de fuego llegan con viento, pero no con miedo,
gentilmente otorgando a los Apóstoles a proclamar la ley de
amor de Jesús. Ezequiel imagina al Espíritu reunir huesos
dispersos, otorgando nueva vida, restaurándoles la Tierra
Prometida. El Espíritu de Pentecostés otorga nueva vida en
almas dispersas, reuniéndolas en la nueva comunidad de fe de
Jesús. Joel promete que el Espíritu dará sueños y visiones para
rescatar a los elegidos de Dios. Pablo declara que ese Espíritu
ora por nosotros, en nosotros; y Jesús nos invita a tomar
profundamente de ese Espíritu, cuya agua viva, fluyendo por
medio de nosotros, restaura amorosamente la vida a los
demás.
BECA ZALUD DISPONIBLE
Perla Zalud, residente de Porterville por mucho tiempo,
estableció un fondo para dar becas a los estudiantes universitarios de tiempo completo con un enfoque en la

Confesiones Disponibles para aquellos minusválidos
con discapacidades
Con la remodelación reciente de los confesionarios en la
iglesia de Sta. María, el confesionario reconstruido recientemente en el lado sur de la iglesia detrás del órgano fue
diseñado específicamente para dar espacio a aquellos
cuya movilidad está restringida o que necesitan usar andadores, bastones o sillas de ruedas. El lado del penitente
es mucho más grande y la puerta ancha permite entrar y
salir a las personas en sillas de ruedas sin muchas maniobras. A su vez, el área alrededor del confesionario es más
cómoda para aquellos en sillas de ruedas, con bastones o
andadores o movilidad limitada.
Les pedimos por favor a aquellas personas que necesitan ayuda de andadores, bastones sillas de ruedas o algo
similar, que utilicen el confesionario del lado sur. Para su
conveniencia, también está marcado con el símbolo tradicional de "discapacitados".

Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship - Part I The U.S. Bishops’ Reflection on Catholic Teaching and Political Life
Our redemption has a social dimension because "God, in Christ, redeems not only the individual person, but also . . . social relations." To believe
that the Holy Spirit is at work in everyone means realizing that he seeks to penetrate every human situation and all social bonds. . . . Accepting
the first proclamation, which invites us to receive God's love and to love him in return with the very love which is his gift, brings forth in our
lives and actions a primary and fundamental response: to desire, seek and protect the good of others.
(Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, no. 178)
PART II …..Continued from two weeks ago.
2.
The political realities of our nation present us with
opportunities and challenges. We are a nation founded on
"life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," but the right to
life itself is not fully protected, especially for unborn children, the terminally ill, and the elderly, the most vulnerable
members of the American family. We are called to be
peacemakers in a nation at war. We are a country pledged
to pursue "liberty and justice for all," but we are too often
divided across lines of race, ethnicity, and economic inequality. We are a nation of immigrants, struggling to address the challenges of many new immigrants in our midst.
We are a society built on the strength of our families,
called to defend marriage and offer moral and economic
supports for family life. We are a powerful nation in a violent world, confronting terror and trying to build a safer,
more just, more peaceful world. We are an affluent society
where too many live in poverty and lack health care and
other necessities of life. We are part of a global community
charged with being good stewards of the earth's environment, what Pope Francis calls "our common home," which
is being threatened. These challenges are at the heart of
public life and at the center of the pursuit of the common
good. They are intertwined and inseparable. As Pope
Francis has insisted, "We are faced . . . with one complex
crisis which is both social and environmental. Strategies for
a solution demand an integrated approach to combating
poverty, restoring dignity to the excluded, and at the same
time protecting nature" (Laudato Si', no. 139).
3.
For many years, we bishops of the United States
have sought to share Catholic teaching on social and political life. We have done so in a series of statements issued
every four years focused on "political responsibility" or
"faithful citizenship." In this document we continue that
practice, maintaining continuity with what we have said in
the past in light of new challenges facing our nation and
world. This is not new teaching but affirms what is taught
by our bishops' conference and the whole Church.
4.
As Catholics, we are part of a community with a
rich heritage that helps us consider the challenges in public life and contribute to greater justice and peace for all
people. Part of that rich heritage on faithful citizenship is
the teaching of Vatican Council II's Declaration on Religious Liberty (Dignitatis Humanae). It says that "society
itself may profit by the moral qualities of justice and peace
which have their origin in [people's] faithfulness to God
and to His holy will" (no. 6). The work for justice requires
that the mind and the heart of Catholics be educated and
formed to know and practice the whole faith.
5.
This statement highlights the role of the Church in
the formation of conscience and the corresponding moral
responsibility of each Catholic to hear, receive, and act
upon the Church's teaching in the lifelong task of forming
his or her own conscience. Foremost amongst those teachings are the four basic principles of Catholic social doctrine: the dignity of the human person, the common good,
subsidiarity, and solidarity (Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, no. 160). With this foundation, Catholics are better able to evaluate policy positions, party platforms, and candidates' promises and actions in light of the
Gospel and the moral and social teaching of the Church in
order to help build a better world.
6.
We seek to do this by addressing four questions:
(1) Why does the Church teach about issues affecting public policy? (2) Who in the Church should participate in political life? (3) How does the Church help the Catholic faithful to speak about political and social questions? (4) What
does the Church say about Catholic social teaching in the
public square?
7.
In this statement, we bishops do not intend to tell
Catholics for whom or against whom to vote. Our purpose
is to help Catholics form their consciences in accordance
with God's truth. We recognize that the responsibility to
make choices in political life rests with each individual in
light of a properly formed conscience, and that participation goes well beyond casting a vote in a particular election.
