ON VACATION
20th Sunday

‘DOGS’--- the humiliating word Jews used to speak of non Jews, foreigners. We also say at times: ‘look at what that dirty dog did to me! They treated me like a dog, they are going to the dogs, She is putting on the dog…………………….” When we use a word in that way, we are doing what we often do: demonize the other person, creating a word which humiliates the other person. (Many dogs TODAY are not treated badly, but sometimes are treated royally, like a special child and get very special consideration from the owner.)

When Jesus speaks to the Canaanite woman, a foreigner, He uses the word DOG to refer to her and yet that word, commentators tell us that he was using a word in his language which means a little pet dog which begs food from the table. Jesus seems to open up a little type of play on words with the woman after the disciples want him to “send her away”. When they say this, it is very much reminds us of when the 5,000 people were with Jesus and they told him to send them away to buy bread themselves.  Jesus once again, does not send them away, nor did he send away the little children that the disciples told him to do.  Rather, he brings the woman into an intimate conversation with a play on the word Dogs. The woman takes up the playful game and reminds Jesus that even little pet dogs get a little bit of food from the children and that is all that she really wants:  Just a little help for her daughter who is possessed by demon.

We don’t know what sort of demon the woman was referring to in her daughter.  It might have been a sickness that didn’t go away or it could be a rebelliousness that the daughter had taken on which put her at odds with the mother.  To me it sounds like what many parents suffer when a son or daughter seem to suddenly change from the child they knew and go in an opposite direction from what they lived before.  Many times I hear parents say that their son or daughter no longer practices their faith nor goes to church and just seems to have changed so much and that they have a spirit in them that is very rebellious, very arrogant, very strong -willed which says: “Let me live my life as I WANT TO LIVE!   This shocking turn of events seem like what the woman was asking the Lord to take from her daughter. She called him the SON OF DAVID and hoped that he would then have compassion for her and to drive out this evil spirit from her daughter, by his gentle love, a compassionate wisdom and understanding.  She calls upon and strongly seeks the power of the word of Jesus and understanding.  She keeps seeking that which He is calling us to follow:  a narrow path that leads to LIFE, rather than the wide and easy path that many are on, but which leads to destruction.  The wide path that a son or daughter might be on is very dangerous and the parents sense that it will lead their child to destroy their lives if they continue that type of behavior.  It is like a coach standing on the sidelines, hoping that the player will do what is best, but  the player seems to ignore the coach and stubbornly and arrogantly does what is self-centered  and eventually candestroy the team and the chance for success.

The woman, like many parents need to come to Jesus and plead with him and not give up, or be sent away, but rather to continue an intimate and stubborn dialog with the Lord until they get the outcome that they are seeking. 
Will you do that this week?  No doubt there is someone who seems to have picked up an evil spirit of self centeredness, arrogance, know it all type of spirit, almost like the son who asked for the inheritance even before the father had died. The son went off and misspent his inheritance, threw out what upbringing his father had given him.  Only when the boy was at rock bottom, had come to a severe hunger in which he even desired the food that pigs eat, did he finally COME TO HIS SENSES and decides to return to his father’s house .We too wait and pray for those who have gone astray and lost their way on the wide path that many are on, the easy way of doing whatever I want to do, but eventually leads to death. Let us beg the Lord to drive out this selfish demon, this arrogance know it all spirit and give our loved ones and many disoriented people the wisdom to make good choices that produce LIFE!

Let us also let go of the prejudiced words which we use for foreigners such as ILLEGAL ALIENS, CRIMINALS for those who come here to our country.  For example, the 57,000 children who have come here since October are CHILDREN who are running away from violence, rape, killings, drug trafficking and are seeking to find a place that offers some better degree of hope and safety.  THEY ARE NOT CRIMINALS!  They are HUMAN BEINGS, CHILDREN, seeking a human life.  They are not DOGS.  They are like little ones, puppies who we need to protect and feed!


18th Sunday of ordinary time:

Five thousand men, not counting women and children, and who has food to feed them?  It sounds a  like the 57,000 Children and women who have come across our border fleeing violence and drug killings and WHO will feed them? “When Jesus saw the vast crowd, his heart was moved with pity for them and when the disciples proposed to send them back and let them buy food for themselves, Jesus said to them, “There is no need for them to go away; give them some food yourselves.”  And they made fun of his request by saying that they only had five loaves and 2 fish.  The truth was that every family had brought along some type of food for their children.  The mothers, the women would have brought along some bread or dried fish, just as we do not go on a journey our car without taking along some snacks and drinks.  Am I RIGHT?  But we hear people saying today that we do not have sufficient food and shelter and clothing for all these children and especially unaccompanied children who have come here to the land of plenty!

But what is important to note is what Jesus did with the 5 barley loaves and 2 fish which we learn in the Gospel of St. John were offered by a young boy who gave in a true and innocent belief that this would be a help to feed the people.  HE ACTED IN FAITH that God had provided plenty and more than he needed and that if he share his bread, the FATHER who provided for these 5 loaves today, would give and abundant amount tomorrow.  SO JESUS TAKES the 5 loaves and 2 fish and then without a word said, looks up to heaven and then said the blessing.

WHY did He look up to heaven?????? What does that gesture tell us???????? WHO IS in heaven??????  ABBA, FATHER, OUR FATHER!  It is the Father, Our Father who provides the daily bread, who created the SEED bearing grains which when we plant them and trust by letting go of them, they will provide a super abundance of grains, more than the one grain we wanted to hold onto.

This is the mystery of love which the young boy demonstrated and which Jesus reminds the 5000 men, women, and children is what happens in their homes each day when the PROVIDENT FATHER gives us the resources to feed our families and even to have more than 12 baskets of LEFTOVERS! Ask yourself: are there any leftovers in your refrigerator today and do you have some food stored up in your pantry????? Would you do what the boy did and show the faith and belief that he showed to Jesus and the disciples????? How often we fear that we willnot have enough to feed the hungry and yet each week the St. Vincent de Paul is able to feed families as it did this past Tuesday, giving out grocery baskets full of food for over 200 families.  Of course this food was gathered from Roadrunner food bank, and the contributions that you make each month in our offering.  Tuesday and Thursday there are about 40 families who also receive food that sustains many children because parents at time do not have the resources to feed them.  So the faith of the little boy is like the faith that you have when you offer some of what you have received from God. The only difference is that the BOY gave ALL that he had to offer at that moment and TRUSTED that God the FATHER would provide for him next day.  It is like the children, un accompanied children who have the faith that if they get here where there is an abundance of food, clothing, and shelter/bedrooms, WE WILL offer all that we have received from God.  This is the faith of our blessed Mother who said that God has done great things for her and through her.  This is the faith of the widow who from her last bit of flour and oil made a meal for the prophet Elijah who promised that her flour and oil would not run out, IF SHE HAD THE FAITH TO GIVE ALL SHE HAD TO FEED HIM.  She did it and she never ran out for what she needed for her son and this stranger who had come to her home.

What then is the blessing that Jesus said when he looked up to Heaven with the 5 loaves and 2 fish that the boy had offered?  We do not have the words recorded, but it sounds like what He will do at the Passover supper when He takes the bread and the wine and said the blessing.  In the ceremony of the Passover supper, there is a remembrance prayer, remembering that God freed the people from the slavery in Egypt and then fed them in the desert with their daily bread and even water from a rock.  He FED them and so Jesus reminded the people that God the Father would ALWAYS feed us, if we trusted to feed others first and not worry if we would have food for ourselves.  This is what we also do now at the EUCHARIST.  The Priest takes the bread and the wine and says the Blessing: “Blessed are you, God of all creation, through YOUR GOODNESS we have this bread and wine to offer, which earth has given, fruit of the earth and which human hands have made---it will become the Bread of LIFE and the Cup of Salvation and we can say: BLESSED BE GOD FOREVER!  

So can you look up to heaven and say a blessing for all that you have really received from God the Father, our Father, who provides our daily bread.  Can you also offer of the abundance that you have, all that you have like the boy and FEED the 57,000 children, unaccompanied children, women and mothers???  I hope you can say: Yes I can---Yes I will!, I offer to you Lord, all that I have received.


17th Sunday ordinary time:

Theme:  If you have not found the hidden treasure or the pearl of great value, keep searching and you will find it in the Old and New Testament.
 
“Ask something of me and I will give it to you, God said in a dream to Solomon.  If God appeared like that to you, WHAT WOULD YOU ASK FOR??????

Money,  Health, a long life, restoration of loved one or relationship, or Victory over your enemy?   Solomon, asked for An UNDERSTANDING Heart! A Listening Heart!  What would you ask for from God? 
In the Gospel Jesus tells us that the Kingdom of heaven is like finding o a hidden treasure and a pearl of great value and these things are so valuable, that the person would sacrifice all that the person possess in order to get it.

What is the most valuable treasure that you have or would want to have? If you found a treasure in a field, what would you hope it would be and what would you give to acquire it?  What would be the pearl of great value for you, that is more precious to you to find?

Would it be wisdom?  Like the young King Solomon asked for, a listening heart that bring with it understanding and directs knowledge properly so that good decisions follow.  Can we ask our young people to pray for a listening heart and the gift of understanding so that they make good decisions in this life filled with great choices.  Can we pray for your YOUNG children to make this the pearl of great price that they seek?  Perhaps even the children who have streamed over the border in these past months are showing the Godly wisdom to take life in hand to escape from the violence and pressure of being forced to kill and sell drugs. In turn, are we wise in our ways of reacting to this situation.  Are we filled with a listening heart and understanding what is going on with their country and ask why they are fleeing here?

 

The Imitation of Christ has a passage which seems to catch the drift of the Gospel images which Jesus speaks about:  “Make room for Christ. When you possess Christ you are a rich person for He is sufficient for you.  He himself, shall provided for you and faithfully administer all you care.  Put all your4 trust in God.  Let him be your love and he will do whatever is in your best interest.” Hazle en ti lugar a Cristo.  Si posees a Cristo, seras rico, y con el te bastara.  El sera tu proveedor y fiel procurador en todo, de manera que no tendras necesiddad de esperar en los hombres. El respondera por ti y todo lo hara bien como major convenga.

Today again we have to ask ourselves what is the pearl of great price which Jesus wants us to seek and find.  What does Jesus consider to be the treasure that is hidden and sometimes when a person finds it, that person is willing to sell everything, leave everything in order to acquire it?  Perhaps it is like the disciples who left everything to follow the TEACHER, Jesus of Nazareth.So the great question put to us and might serve also for our family to discuss is:  What is the Pearl of great price that we need to seek and what is the GOOD and the BAD that we have to separate out in life?
16th Sunday ordinary

Do you want us to pull the weeds up? No, if you pull up the weeds you might uproot the wheat along with them.”  The wisdom of this is that the weeds, darnel resembled wheat in the early stages of growth.  The good and the evil are sometimes entwined so much that it is hard to separate one from the other.

But the promise made by the parable of the Lord is that in the end there will be a separation of the weeds from the wheat. This is the mystery of the wisdom of God’s mercy also in which, as long as evil exists or is present, there is a chance of conversion. 

So often, however, we are more inclined to focus our attention on the existence of evil and how we can eliminate it or pull it out.  We do it often or at least wish to do it and eliminate all evil and live in a world where no evil exists.

One example that I want to call your attention to is the situation of the children coming across the border.  Many times people call these children immigrants and illegal.  But the truth is that we need to see the roots of the evil which exists now in the central American countries. Honduras has the highest per capital murder rate right now. These children are running away from this situation as you or I would do.  They are children!  And we need to ask what is at the root or what is the reason for these children running away from their land of origin.  We want to root THEM out as EVIL, but the evil exists around them and is deeply entwined around them.   

So can we protect the good that is developing in these children or let them be overwhelmed by the evil which is so around them?

As Jesus showed us and said: “Let the little children come to me, for of them we learn what the kingdom is all about, it is about a mustard seed or yeast that is so small, but grows to large proportions, IF WE ALLOW IT and welcome them.” And then he touched them, blessed them and so should we!


 

 


Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Sunday, August 17, 2014

Introduction to the Liturgy of the Day

The celebration to which God summons us today has sometimes been called the “welcome table.” Everywhere we turn, we see people around us who are different from us in one way or another. Yet all are (or should be) welcome at our Eucharistic table. As we welcome on another around our twin tables of word and Eucharist, perhaps our prayer today can be for the grace to be as welcoming outside these walls as we are within them.

 

Introduction to the Liturgy of the Word

Sometimes our scriptures seem as if they were taken from today’s headlines. The people of Israel in Isaiah’s time and in Jesus’ time had difficulty dealing with foreigners in their midst, just as we often seem to do in our country today. Yet when we listen closely to these readings, we can discern God’s response to them. How should that inform our response in the here and now?

 

Vigésimo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

17 de agosto 2014

Introducción de la Liturgia del Día

Esta celebración a la cual Dios nos convoca hoy es a veces llamada la “mesa de bienvenida”.  Dondequiere que miremos vemos a nuestro derredor personas que son diferentes a nosotros de una manera u otra. Mas sin embargo, todo somos (o deberíamos ser) bienvenidos a nuestra mesa eucarístía. Al darnos la bienvendad mutuamente a nuestras mesas gemelas de la palabra y la Eucaristía, tal vez nuestra oración de hoy pudiera pedir la gracia de ser tan acogedores fuera de estas paredes como lo somos aquí adentro.  

 

Introducción a la Liturgia de la Palabra

Hay veces que la Escritura parece reflejar los titular del día. El pueblo de Israel en el tiempo de Isaías y en el de Jesús tenía dificultad en su trato con los extranjeros que vivían entre ellos, tal como a menudo parece suceder en este país hoy día. Mas, si escuchamos estas lecturas con atención podremos discerner cómo Dios responde a esa situación. ¿Cómo puede ese discernimiento nuestro afectar una respuesta informada de nuestra parte a tal situación en la acutalidad?

Pope Francis speaks to the World

Pope Francis has awakened the world to the need for mercy, and urges each of us to "travel this path of mercy." But what is mercy exactly? How does Jesus model mercy? What are the works of mercy? And most important, how can I become more merciful myself?  By avoiding gossip, refusing to retaliate when offended, and accepting mercy from others. As we become more merciful, we begin to respond to people in need, and we ourselves are blessed, as Jesus said "Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy." (Mt. 5:7)

Twenty First Sunday in Ordinary Time

Sunday, August 24, 2014

Introduction to the Liturgy of the Day

In today’s Gospel we will hear Jesus ask, “Who do you say that I am?” Most of us would not be here if we had not already given thought to that question. Yet every new experience in our lives gives us another opportunity to learn more about the Lord. Maybe it’s been a while since you’ve thought about it. Today, who do you say that Jesus is? Let us pray together and find out.  

 

Introduction to the Liturgy of the Word

For the third week in a row, the topic of faith appears in the Gospel. This time Peter gets it right, acknowledging Jesus as the Messiah or as our translation has it, the “Christ” or anointed one. Jesus’ response is telling; this faith of Peter’s comes from the heavenly Father. Is it not so with us as well? What responsibilities do you think are given to you along with your gift of faith?

 

Vegésimo Primer Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

24 de agosto 2014

Introducción de la Liturgia del Día

En el Evangelio de hoy oiremos a Jesús preguntar: “Y ustedes, ¿quién dicen que soy yo?” La mayoría de nosotros no estuviera aquí si ya no hubiéramos considerado esa pregunta. Sin embargo, cada nueva experiencia en nuestra vida nos da otra oportunidad de aprender más acerca del Señor. Tal vez y haya pasado tiempo desde que pensaste en esa pregunta la última vez. Hoy, ¿quién dices tú que es Jesús? Oremos juntos para encontrar la respuesta. 

 

Introducción a la Liturgia de la Palabra

Ésta es la tercer semana consecutiva que el tópico de la fe aparece en el Evangelio. Esta vez Pedro hace lo correcto al reconocer a Jesús como el Mesías, el “Cristo”, el ungido. La respeueta de Jesús dice que esa fe de Pedro le viene del Padre celestial. ¿No sucede así también en nuestro caso? ¿Cuáles son la responsabilidades que crees se ten han dado conjuntament con el don de tu fe?

You Did It For Me

In the Central African Republic and South Sudan, people live through farming. Most of their food comes from what they can grow, and the crops which are not eaten are sold to bring income. But the recent violence in these African nations has prevented farmers from planting this year. In the face of a possible famine, CRS is working to prepare families for the difficult times ahead.

Tú lo hiciste por mí  

En la República Centroafricana y Sudán del Sur, la gente vive de la agricultura. La mayor parte de sus alimentos proviene de lo que pueden cultivar, y las cosechas que no se consumen son vendidas para obtener un ingreso. Sin embargo, la reciente violencia en estos países africanos ha impedido a los agricultores sembrar este año. Frente a una posible hambruna, CRS está trabajando para preparar a las familias para los tiempos difíciles que se avecinan.                                   

Ministros Extraordinarios de la Comunión

Hemos recibido muchas llamadas para llevar la comunión a los enfermos en sus casas. Muchos de nuestros parroquianos están enfermos y no pueden venir a misa y les gustaría recibir la Comunión. Si estás interesado en llevar la communión a los enfermos, llama a Linda Padilla al 842-5426. Gracias y que Dios te bendiga.

Requisito importante

Todo adulto de 18 años o mayor que sirva como ministro voluntario o empleado en una parroquia o escuela católica en la Arquidiócesis de Santa Fe debe asistir a uno de los entrenamientos sobre la prevención del abuso a menores ofrecidos por la oficina del Ambiente Seguro de la Arquidiócesis, especialmente si su ministerio le coloca en una posición de contacto directo con menores. Los próximos entrenamientos en español se llevarán a cabo en las siguientes fechas y localidades: El jueves 28 de agosto, de 6:30pm a 9:30 pm en el Centro Católico, 4000 St. Joseph Pl. NW, Albuquerque, NM 87120. El entrenamiento se ofrece sin costo, pero es necesario pre-inscribirse. El cupo es limitado. Llama ya al (505) 831-8244 para inscribirte. (Por favor, ten en cuenta que no habrá cuidado de niños y los menores no pueden entrar a este taller).


Estás inscrito en la parroquia?

¿Como saber si estás inscrito?  Si recibes los sobres de la parroquia en tu casa, estás inscrito o registrado. Si celebraste una boda en esta parroquia, o que tus niños recibieron sus sacramentos aquí no te hace automáticamente un feligrés inscrito.  Si no recibes nuestros sobres en el correo en tu domicilio, no estás inscrito. Recuerda que si tienes dieciocho años de edad o más, necesitas tener tu propia inscripción.

El uso de los sobres es la herramienta más eficaz para probar su actividad y participación en la parroquia). Los padres y padrinos que no sean miembros registrados de la Iglesia Sagrada Familia deben tener una carta de autorización firmada por el pastor de la parroquia a la cual pertenecen.
