From the Pastor's Desk:

July 14th, 2024

My Dear Parishioners,


On this Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, we recognize that part of God's plan for salvation is to call individuals to be  spokespersons for God and to send them out on a divine mission.


In the First Reading, Amos, a prophet, is sent to challenge the wealthy and sinful. In the Gospel, Jesus sends His disciples on a missionary activity. 


The readings speak of a two-fold part of being a disciple: election and mission. Those who are true disciplined followers of Jesus realize that they have been chosen. They, like the true prophets of old, have not taken this job on their own. They have a vocation from God. They are called to learn from the Master and then to be sent out on a mission. Yet, it is not just the Twelve who have been called and sent. All the disciples of Jesus (that includes all of us) are part of the Chosen Ones. We have been called by the Lord Jesus. It is not just for our own sake that we have been called. It is for the sake of God and the spread of the Good News. We are all missionaries. Some may be sent to a foreign country, but most of us are sent to the home missions: our immediate families, our workplace, our faith and civil communities. We also must be willing to devote ourselves to the service of those whom God has entrusted to us. We are to be aware that the Holy Spirit is our guide and will give us the words to speak if we are but open to the Spirit's presence in our lives. 


The purpose of all this is to bless God. The Lord Jesus is our Master and Teacher. The Holy Spirit is our guide. God is the reason for our being the best missionaries we can be, so that we can help others find their way and destiny in the Reign of God. 


May you continue to respond to God's call and seek to do what God is asking you to do so that the Good News can be proclaimed to others. 


Amen!


God Bless You,


Father George, MSFS

Eucharistic Revival:

Eucharistic Revival for  

week of July 14th -- 15th Sunday of Ordinary Time


A Minute with Jesus. 

 The Eucharist is called the Memorial of the Lord’s Death and Resurrection


Jesus instructed the apostles at the Last Supper to “do this in memory of Me.” The Eucharist is a memorial, but this means much more than recalling something to mind, or remembering an event from the past. “In Sacred Scripture, the memorial is not merely the recollection of past events.” At Mass, specific events from the life of Christ become present and real so that our lives may be conformed to them. “When the Church

celebrates the Eucharist, She commemorates Christ’s Passover [Jesus passing over from death

to life], and it is made present: the sacrifice of Christ offered once for all on the Cross remains ever present.” So, never forget the true meaning of the word “Memorial.”


Let’s pray this right now and every day this week:


Jesus, please help me prepare beforehand to enter into the Memorial—the making present—of

Your death and resurrection at Mass. 

This week, read how St. Paul describes the Last Supper in

1 Corinthians 11:23-26.


Blessed Carlo Acutis – a Teenage Saint to be:

Pope Francis has recognized a second miracle attributed to the intercession of Carlo Acutis, an

Italian teenager who died in 2006, paving the way for him to be canonized by the Catholic Church. A gamer and computer programmer who loved the Eucharist, he will be the Church’s first millennial saint. For more information on Blessed

Carlo, visit his official website at carlocutis-en.org.

LEAVING A LEGACY


Reminder: Planned Giving – Leaving a Legacy, Wills, Bequests and Endowments: 

We have inherited such treasures from our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, those whose shoulders we stand on today. Now it is our turn to make sure future generations can enjoy the reverence and beauty of a well-maintained parish. Leveraging the Capital Campaign and providing parishioners with information on Endowments, Trusts and Bequests are just a few ways a parish can help prepare for its future.  Please let us know if you would like more information at 715-985-2227.
