From the Pastor’s Laptop
When there is inexplicable suffering or evil in the news in our
world, in our neighborhood or in our own home, we wonder why. If
God is good, how could He allow it. There is terror and war,
especially now in Israel (which we had just visited on our parish
pilgrimage). There are tragedies such as the car accident that broke
the neck of Jeremy Phillips, the lead altar server of our 5:30 PM
Saturday Mass. There is illness and death in each of our
families. There are bad people who corrupt our children and lead
them astray.
Jesus is the answer to life’s questions. He answers by
suffering Himself; by dying Himself; and also by telling parable
stories which help explain the mysteries of the Kingdom: “Jesus
spoke to the crowds only in parables.” For example, He speaks about
a “mustard seed” that is almost too small to see, but which grows into
the largest shrub. Only in heaven will we see the true unfolding of
the events that happen in this short life. We will comprehend them
only in heaven when it all unfolds. God will explain to us all the
reasons for the things that happen. “He also tells a parable about
weeds. He says “Let them grow together until harvest.” These
terrible words let us know that God’s mysterious plan is to allow evil
to develop along with the good in this life. He wants us to put up
with the weeds of life. Evil is allowed because it allows for the
possibility of even greater good: “If you pull up the weeds you might
uproot the wheat along with them.” When we see the courageous
faith of Jeremy and his family, we are all inspired. From suffering
can come mysterious fruits of salvation. Let us all pray for a miracle
of healing for Jeremy, but also for the grace to imitate Christ who
offered up His pain on the tree of the cross for the salvation of
souls. We are the wheat which will be gathered and ground to form
pure bread to be offered to the Father. “Then the righteous will shine
like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.”

Bl. Junipero Serra
 Religious Education 
July 1 was the feast day of Blessed Junipero Serra, the great
Franciscan missionary, who brought the Catholic faith to
the new world. Miguel José Serra was born in Majorca,
Spain in 1713, an excellent student who entered the
novitiate at the age of sixteen. He was later sent to study
and earn a doctorate, becoming a professor at the
University of Palma. Junipero was a very good preacher
and scholar, who was inspired by the missionary work of
St. Francis Solano in South America. In 1789, Junipero left
for what was to become California. He landed in Monterey
and celebrated Mass overlooking the bay. His zeal and love
for God and souls, led him to found nine missions, walk
24,000 miles, and convert six thousand. His motto was
“always go forward and never go back!” His indomitable spirit
and untiring labor laid the foundation for today’s
Californian agriculture. Junipero’s fatherly love for the
natives was often the basis for his perennial fight with the
military and the governors, who often sought to take
advantage of them. Despite his age and a wounded leg that
became ulcerated, he chose a life of hardship, helping many
to know Christ. Junipero’s first desire as a disciple was the
eternal salvation of all souls, and not just their temporal
well-being. This great Franciscan missionary, who laid all
before God and the Church, has left his imprint in this state. Those who visit the missions are often
surprised and impressed by the great skill, vision and dedication of this little friar. The words, “speak
Lord, for your servant is listening,” were lived by Fr. Serra until his death from tuberculosis at 70 years old.
He came to the wilderness of the new world and its natives, and was able to shepherd his flock toward
God. Let us ask Fr. Junipero Serra to intercede for all of us as as we labor to bring Christ to our
brothers and sisters, who have returned to a state of spiritual wilderness. Fr. Junipero Serra, pray for us!

NO ONE CAN JUDGE
One who judges “always gets it
wrong”. He’s wrong, Pope Francis
explained, “because he takes the place
of God, who is the only judge: taking
that place is taking the wrong place!”.
Believing you have the authority to
judge everything: people, life,
everything”. And “with the capacity to
judge” you also assume you have “the
capacity to condemn”.
This person “doesn’t only get it wrong;
he also gets confused”. And “he often
becomes obsessed with whom he
wants to judge, with that person —
so, so very obsessed!” Sometimes
losing sleep over that “speck”, he
repeats, “But I want to remove that
speck for you!”. Meanwhile, he isn’t
aware “of the log he has” in his own
eye... Therefore, “the arrogant and
condescending judge who assumes the
wrong place, because he is taking
God’s place, is betting on a loser”.
Who is the loser? “The one who is
judged by the same measure by which
he judges”, the Pope clarified.

“Millennium child,” and her family
(Will and Michelle, 7 younger
siblings) has been a dedicated
parishioner of St. Joseph`s from
2001, serving graciously to God`s
call. From her early childhood,
Mary was involved in the parish
life: VBR and Children`s Holy
Hour with her dad, junior sacristan
for the 5:45pm daily Mass, and
other activities.
About 2 years ago, Mary joined our
Hand Bells Choir family,
generously sharing her music
talent, playing bells for parish
concerts and liturgies. Mary also
adores singing for God and has a
very pretty voice. Her desire is to
become a church musician (at the
age of four, Mary already started to
practice piano). This year, first
time, she successfully sang as a
cantor for the Home School
Graduation Mass.
For Mary, faith is a very important
part of her life. Being so young,
Mary is working hard on her
journey to follow Jesus and become
a good steward: “I love to support
other people and my family as
much as I can.” She loves
everybody around her, people and
animals. One of her hobbies is to
raise chickens and rabbits.
We are very thankful for all your
work that you do for God and His
people!

Nuestro Santo Padre en Roma
NADIE PUEDE JUZGAR
Quien juzga «se equivoca siempre». Y se equivoca, afirmó,
«porque se pone en el lugar de Dios, que es el único juez:
ocupa precisamente ese puesto y se equivoca de lugar». En práctica,
cree tener «el poder de juzgar todo: las personas, la vida, todo». Y
«con la capacidad de juzgar» considera que tiene «también la
capacidad de condenar». Pero, precisó el Papa, «no sólo se equivoca;
también se confunde». Y «está tan obsesionado de eso que quiere
juzgar, de esa persona —tan, tan obsesionado— que esa pajilla no le
deja dormir». Y repite: «Pero yo quiero quitarte esa pajilla». Sin darse
cuenta, sin embargo, de la viga que tiene él» en su propio ojo. ...Por lo
tanto, «el juez soberbio y suficiente que se equivoca de lugar, porque
toma el lugar de Dios, apuesta por una derrota». Y ¿cuál es la
derrota? «La de ser juzgado con la misma medida con la que él juzga.
23 de junio, 2014
Mensaje para reflexión...
Los textos del domingo nos ayudan a compaginar dos tributos
de Dios: es poderoso y es compasivo. Y es admirable que los dos
se proclamen al tiempo de un solo y mismo Dios, porque
nuestra experiencia suele ser que los que tienen mucho poder
tienen poca misericordia, mientras que los muy comprensivos
resultan inhábiles para alcanzar el mando. Parece ser que la
clave de la unión entre estas dos cualidades divinas es que
ambas son infinitas. El que tiene un poder limitado tiene
siempre el temor de perderlo o de que algo escape de su mano.
El temor cierra el alma, y de ahí viene la dureza típica de lo que
llamamos los “mandos medios.” Lo mismo vale si la persona
tiene una compasión limitada. “Que es una compasión
limitada? Es la capacidad de perdonar “algunas cosa” pero no
todas. Dios en cambio, es ilimitado, es infinito, tanto en su
poder como en su compasión. Ambas coexisten precisamente
porque son infinitas. Lo dice hermosamente la primera lectura
del libro de la Sabiduria: “ Tu poder es el fundamento de tu justicia, y
por ser el Señor de todos; eres misericordioso con todos… Con todo esto has
ensenado a tu pueblo que el justo deber ser humano, y has llenado a tus hijos
de una dulce esperanza, ya que al pecador le das tiempo para que se
arrepienta.”

2001, respondiendo a la llamada de
Dios. Desde su niñez, Mary ha sido
parte de la familia parroquial: en
VBR y la Hora Santa Infantil con su
papá, sacristán junior para la Misa
diaria de las 5:45 y otras actividades.
Hace unos dos años, Mary se hizo
parte de la familia del coro de
campana, compartiendo
generosamente su talento musical,
tocando las campanas para los
conciertos y liturgias de la parroquia.
Mary también adora cantarle a dios y
tiene una voz muy linda. Su deseo
es de ser una música para la iglesia
(a la edad de cuatro, Mary ya habia
comenzado a practicar el piano).
Este año, por primera vez, tuvo el
éxito de cantar un “solo” para la
Misa de graduación del grupo que
estudian en casa.
Para Mary, la fe es una parte
importante de su vida. Siendo tan
joven, Mary trabaja en el camino
siguiendo a Cristo y volviéndose una
gran corresponsal: “me encanta
ayudar a otros y a mi familia en lo
qu mas puedo.” Ella ama a todos a
su alrededor, la gente y los animales.
Uno de sus hobbies es cuidar pollitos
y conejos.
¡Estamos agradecidos por todo el
trabajo que haces para Dios y Su
pueblo!

A man wakes up after sleeping

on an ADVERTISED mattress
and pulls off ADVERTISED pajamas
bathes in an ADVERTISED shower
shaves with an ADVERTISED razor
brushes his teeth
with ADVERTISED toothpaste
washes with ADVERTISED soap
puts on ADVERTISED clothes
drinks a cup
of ADVERTISED coffee
drives to work
in an ADVERTISED car
and then . . . .
refuses to ADVERTISE
believing it doesn’t pay.
Later if business is poor
he ADVERTISES it for sale.
