¡Faltan 87 días para que llegue el Papa a los Estados Unidos
F
ollowing the theme of "struggle" that constantly arises in this year's Cycle B reading
series, the struggle in this weekend's readings
is the very human discomfort in facing death. The first
reading tells us that God didn't make us for death but for
eternal life simply because God is "just" (which in biblical wisdom literature is a synonym for "faithful,") and if
God is eternal, then God is eternally "faithful," and so
we are made to be in relationship with Him eternally.
The author goes on to blame death on the wicked, who,
instead of acting in accord with justice, live unjustly and
so, prefer "finitude" and what they can "get and amass"
here, instead of wanting eternity with God. Hmmm.
Maybe God will find a way to be "faithful" even to
them! We can dare to have that hope as we look at the
Gospel where we see two close "brushes with death,"
and how Jesus (God) brings life out of death-dealing
situations. In the second reading, Paul, in "good Catholic form," is writing about a "collection of money" for
the poor and starving in Jerusalem...another way of
"staving off death" is to provide the hungry with food.
All these readings assure us that God is guiding us to
eternity--death is not something to fear--and that we
have in our power to make life, on this side of death, so
much more bearable for so many if we could only find it
in our hearts to be more generous.
- Fr. Bill Axe
Las lecturas de este fin de semana nos hablan sobre
nuestra lucha cuando nos enfrentamos con la muerte.
Las primera lectura nos dice que Dios no nos creó
para la muerte si no para la vida eterna, puesto que
Dios es justo, que significa fiel. Entonces, si Dios es
eterno, y si Dios es fiel eternamente, por lo tanto,
somos creados para tener una relación con Dios eternamente. El autor después nos comparte que los malvados son quienes prefieren la muerte sobre la vida
eterna con Dios, puesto que viven haciendo obras
injustas. ¡A lo mejor Dios encontrará una manera de
cómo ser fiel con ellos! Podemos decir esto de acuerdo al Evangelio que nos dice cómo Jesús trajo vida
de la muerte. En la segunda lectura, Pablo nos escriba sobre una “colecta de dinero” para la gente pobre
que sufre de hambre en Jerusalén… Ésta es una manera de cómo luchar la muerte, de proveer comida a
quienes sufren de hambre. Todas estas lecturas nos
aseguran que Dios nos está guiando hacia la eternidad… la muerte no es algo a que temerle– tenemos
en nuestro poder en cómo crear la vida, en esta parte
de la muerte. Por lo tanto, puede ser mucho más soportable si llegamos a ser más generosos en nuestros
corazones.

“I am a mission on this earth; that is the reason
why I am here in this world" (273).
- Pope Francis in Joy of the Gospel
“Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love. We melt into another world, a
realm of power already within us. The world
changes when we change. The world softens
when we soften. The world loves us when we
choose to love the world."
- Marianne Williamson in A Return to Love
To build and foster a Christian Community that
offers the opportunity to experience God’s unconditional love and acceptance to all who come into
contact with it.
W
e are so blessed to have a God who
loves us so much that he came upon
this earth to steer us straight. There
were so many laws about impurity and untouchables
that many people were excluded from society. We hear
in today's readings how Christ changed all of that. No
one was unclean or untouchable, Christ used his power
to heal and transform lives. It seems like we have lost
that image of God in our society. Shouldn't we be transforming lives instead of condemning? Who do you
know in your circle of friends who feels unwelcome?
Can you reach out to that person and be Christ to them?
Be Jesus to them!!
I will be out of the Parish for around six weeks starting
on Monday as I am having foot surgery. I won't be able
to stand on my foot for six weeks. You will all be in my
thoughts and prayers as I am healing. Please keep me in
yours as well.
Have a blessed week,
Sr. Karen Collier

Construyendo y alimentando una comunidad cristiana que ofrezca la oportunidad de experimentar
el amor incondicional de Dios y la aceptación a
todos con quienes nos encontremos.
S
omos sumamente bendecidos de tener a un Dios
que vino al mundo para ponernos en buen camino. Habían muchas leyes sobre seres impuros e
intocables que excluían a mucha gente. Escuchamos el
día de hoy cómo Jesús cambió todo esto. Nadie era impuro ni intocable, Jesús usó su poder para sanar y transformar vidas. Parece que hemos perdido esa imagen de
Dios en nuestra sociedad. ¿A poco no deberíamos de
transformar vidas y no de condenarlas ni menospreciarlas? ¿Conoces a alguien entre tus amigos que no se
sienta bienvenido? ¿Podrías ser como Cristo y hacerle
que se siente bienvenido? ¡Sean Jesús con ellos!
El lunes tendré una cirugía en mi pie y tendré que estar
fuera de la parroquia por 6 semanas, puesto que no
podré estar de pie y tendré que descansar lo más que se
pueda. Ustedes estarán en mis pensamientos y oraciones mientras me recupero. Por favor de recordarme en
las suyas también.
Que tengan una semana bendita,
Hermana Karen Collier

Financial Report on Parish Festival 2015
Reporte Financiero del Festival 2015
We are proud to say that our Festival achieved Revenue
greater than Expenses to produce net income of
$38,132.38. The regular Parish revenue from collections,
contributions, rent from school & hall and the various fund
raisers do not provide sufficient money to pay for all the
costs to operate the parish. Consequently, we are very
happy with the impressive financial contribution of the
Festival towards meeting Parish expenses. Congratulations
and a hearty THANK YOU to all who contributed their
talent, time, energy and money to achieve the good results!
May God bless you!
Con alegría reportamos que nuestro Festival obtuvo más
ingresos que gastos, con un neto total de $38,132.38. El
ingreso regular de la Parroquia que viene de la colecta,
donaciones, renta de la escuela y del salón parroquial, o
los demás eventos para recaudar fondos no obtienen el
dinero suficiente para las operaciones de la Iglesia. Por lo
tanto, estamos muy felices por la contribución financiera
del festival hacia los gastos de la Parroquia. Felicidades y
mil GRACIAS a todos quienes contribuyeron con sus talentos, tiempo, energía y con su dinero para alcanzar estos
resultados! ¡Que Dios los bendiga!
We will provide a more detailed annual financial report in
August or September.
En agosto o en septiembre tendremos un reporte financiero más detallado del año fiscal.
