I always welcome comments on the homil

“Do you want us to go and 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!

16th Sunday Fiesta Weekend


15th Sunday Ordinary tim

There is nothing more joyful than when a fruit tree that you planted produces apricots or when a tomato plant begins to form little tomatoes on its branches.  IT is the same when the Word of God begins to produce fruit in your life!

  Today, Jesus makes it easy for us to understand the Word of God.  He tells us the story of seeds which are thrown on the ground.  Some fall on the path and birds eat them, some begin to grow, but do not have strong roots, wither and die, some begin to grow, but thorns choke off the growth and some seeds grow in good soil and produce a harvest of many grains.

 Jesus takes us all aside and explains what this means.  THE SEED IS THE WORD of God and Jesus is the Sower. The 1st reading describes The Word of God coming down to us like the RAIN that has been falling here each afternoon.  A farmer hopes that this rain will make the frijol, chili, and corn grow for a great harvest.  GOD the Father also hopes His WORD that is in the Bible will also produce an abundant harvest in us. 

 How many of you have a Bible?  Many people may have a Bible but let it sit in a place in the house and never read it.  Sometimes we begin a good resolution to read the Bible during Lent but that lasts about a week or so into Lent. Have you tried to read it and given up on trying to understand it?  If you are like me, it is not always easy to understand things in the Bible. Sometimes the pressures of work and shortage of time lets the Word get choked off by the worries that we have about making ends meet.  Yet there are people who read the Bible every day when they get up in the morning or in the evening before they go to bed.

 Where do you fall in terms of your use of the Bible, the Word of God?  Do you have a Bible that is in the closet under the Telephone Directory?  Do you have a big Family Bible that sits on a table in your living room?  It gives the appearance that the Bible is important for the family, but it is not really doing anything!

OR have you tried to read the Bible and given up on trying to understand it?  Actually Bibles are available today that have notes at the bottom of the page which help to understand the Word.  BUT sometimes we give up on reading the Bible because we are not rooted in the study of the Bible.

Many of us spend a lot of time on our cell phones worrying about our messages, going to APP sites, TEXTING, even while driving or eating while looking down at your phone messages.  Ask yourself honestly is the use of your phone choking off the Word of God in the Bible for you?  

I would suggest that you read a small portion of the Bible each day. Begin with a prayer turning to one of the 150 prayers which we call the Psalms, like Psalm 23:           The Lord is my Shepherd who walks with me through the dark valleys of life, who guides me and leads me and goes ahead of me.  He even holds me when I am tired and gives me real REST.  He anoints my head and gives me the promise of living in the presence of the Lord for all time.

  Follow this up by read a short passage from the Bible. Read it over several times and let a word or a phrase sink into your awareness. Then let the Lord explain what that word or phrase is meant to say to you.  The Lord promises that if you read the Word of God each day, you will see a great growth in your life, like picking fruit from your tree that you nurtured.

On the back of the Bulletin are selections that you can read from each day.  Some Bibles also have indications where you can find help for difficult times like if you are afraid? Then read this, if you are sad, read this, if you are discouraged, read this, if you are angry, read this. This upcoming weekend, during our Fiesta, we will have a Religious Information Booth and people will be there to give you information or answer questions.  They will have Bibles available and are willing to show you how to begin to read the Word of God and allow it to grow in your life. They will try to answer questions you have about the Word of God and show you how they are letting the Word of God produce an abundant harvest of Understanding in their lives.

Today Jesus made it easy to understand his teaching and He will guide you each day, if you give Him some time to do it! Jesus makes it clear:  WORLDLY ANXIETY AND THE LURE OF RICHES can choke off the WORD of GOD and the WORD that is being choked off is the Word FATHER! 

 You too, like me, will be able to say, I really like taste the sweetness of the Word of God and it is very satisfying to see it  producing spiritual fruit in my life.

14th Ordinary Sunday

Sun

My YOKE is easy and my burden is light’ the Lord tells us today.  He invites us to come to Him and take up HIS YOKE and learn from Him that these burdens can be light and easy.  DO YOU KNOW WHAT A YOKE IS?   It is a round shaped collar which is put around a horse’s neck or a wooden beam around an animal so that it can pull a heavy burden that the person cannot carry.  The neck of the animal takes the weight of the burden which is being pulled along.  These neck muscles get tight and tense, like we do when we are feeling a burden or something is stressful or worrisome in our lives.  We generally feel tension in the shoulders and neck areas when we are under pressure, or STRESSED out about a situation.  When a parent cannot make ends meet, or a family situation is difficult, no doubt the tension is felt in all of the body but the neck and shoulders.  So a YOKE is a device in which the animal can pull along the weight of a wagon or other device for carrying something that is heavy and difficult to move forward. 

WHAT ARE THE BURDENS THAT YOU ARE CARRYING NOW which are heavy and you are laboring to carry?  Perhaps it is a physical situation or an emotional problem or maybe a family problem that is hard to deal with.  Sometimes there are tragedies which seem unfair such as a car wreck. Maybe it is the death of a loved one which is hard to bear.  Sometimes there is a difficult in a marriage or a parent dealing with a son or daughter or a child dealing with a difficult parent or situation at school.  These are heavy burdens that many of you are carrying each day and sometimes you want to say or have said: THAT’S ALL I CAN CARRY!  I can’t go on like this!  This is too much for me to bear!  Sometimes we give up hope of being able to carry the burden and people have turned to drugs or other drugs of their choice to escape from the pain of the burden they are carrying. 
But there are also the spiritual burdens like having to come to Mass each Sunday or not eat meat on Friday or following the teaching of the Church on Birth Control or other issues, or thinking that God is PUNISHING ME or others in PURGATORY.  These spiritual burdens seem like they are imposed by someone who want to burden us down with many rules and commands which are getting hard to carry.

How does Jesus then say that carrying HIS YOKE will be easier????  He invites us to come to Him and learn from Him.  WE ARE HIS DISCIPLES, learners who are wanting to follow Him, but like St. Peter reacted saying: We have left everything and what are we going to get for leaving our security of fishing to follow a man who has nothing to promise?  Jesus tells him and us that we will receive a hundred more family members, AND PERSECUTION, but in the end ETERNAL LIFE!  Peter later decides to follow the Lord because whom else promises eternal LIFE?  But when it comes time to take up the cross that Jesus carries, Peter and the others run away out of fear of the burden of this intense suffering AND FOR WHAT?  They do not see the Resurrection, the Sunday VICTORY, only the pain and suffering.  Jesus tells them that a woman as she labors to give birth has intense pain, but when the mother sees the new LIFE, she begins to forget the pain. It was well worth it, vale la pena as we say.

If we only see going to Mass every Sunday as a burden, then we have not seen the reason and motive for gathering each Sunday. Saint Pope John Paul II wrote: ‘Every 7 days the Church celebrates the Easter mystery.  The resurrection of Jesus is the fundamental event upon which Christian faith rests. Sunday is above all an Easter celebration.’ So if we can focus on the real MOTIVE for the command of the Church to come here: to deepen our understanding of the center of our faith in Jesus, THEN the BURDEN is light and easy because it helps us to carry all the other burdens in an easier way. 

Then we also have to learn from Jesus as to the reason and MOTIVE for his suffering and death on the cross.  AS we say in the Creed: FOR OUR SAKE He suffered and died and from that death, comes forgiveness, the power to forgive and the promise of a life after death.  IF YOU BELIEVE IN ME………

The MOTIVE that we need to come to in any work or family burden is not to carry it out of DUTY, but out of LOVE.  A person works BEST when they do not work mainly for the SALARY, but the good of the family or for the person they attend like a nurse who attends a patient out of LOVE, not out of DUTY.  That makes a big difference, when our motive is LOVE FOR ANOTHER PERSON.

Finally, PSALM 145 today tells us that the Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and of great kindness. The Lord is good to all and compassionate toward all his works.  This Psalm and Psalm 103 give a quite different understanding of God rather than the one we have invented or made to think is God.  When we open the pages of the Bible we find that God is quite different than we imagine and does surprising things and impossible things and we learn who God is FROM THE ACTIONS AND EXPERIENCES WE SEE IN JESUS!  So the more we study Jesus and FOCUS on HIM, we learn HIS MOTIVES and HIS ACTIONS then need to become ours and our burdens will lighten.  It is like the little boy who was carrying another boy on his shoulders.  Fr. Flannigan asked the boy if he wanted help to carry the boy who seemed pretty heavy.  The little boy simply replied and revealed the way it is: HE’S NOT HEAVY, HE’S MY BROTHER!  So the relationship we have, the MOTIVE we have makes all the difference and makes our burdens, and the yoke of JESUS LIGHT!

 

day- Body and BLOOD of Jesus

Have you ever had a blood transfusion?   When I had my surgery on my liver, I needed a blood transfusion for all the blood that I had lost.  After I got a little better, my brother and my sister decided to donate blood at the hospital because of the blood that I had received, out of gratitude for the people who had donate their blood to save my life.  The blood of another person becomes the source of recuperation of strength until the body itself can again produce it’s own blood and nourishment.

Most of you might say that you did not receive a blood transfusion, but actually everyone of us have had one when we were in the womb of our mother for 9 months.  There was a umbilical tube that connected us to our mother and through that tube flowed blood and oxygen and all the necessary nutrients that we needed to grow and sustain ourselves until we were fully born and able to create our own blood apart from the mother’s blood.

Jesus tells us that HE can give us HIS BLOOD which will give us life. Isn’t it amazing that God can pour into us the blood that can sustain us and keep us nourished when our spirit is getting weak and in need of strength.  This is the Holy Communion which we receive each day we come here.  In the past the emphasis has been on the host that we receive on the tongue, but I would like to remind ourselves that we received the body AND BLOOD of Jesus in our COMMUNION with our God.  We receive His STRENGTH which gives us the necessary nourishment to overcome any difficulty or suffering. 

One of the symbols that was taken up by the early Christians is the mother PELICAN who according to legend in time of famine, would wound herself, bite her flesh, striking her breast with her beak in order to fee her young with her blood to prevent starvation.  Another tradition was that the mother fed her dying young with her blood to revive them from death, but in turn lost her own life for them.  This is true love and is really what Jesus talks and commands us to have: to lay down our life for those who are our friends.

This image of giving of blood for another person to survive is surely what we hear each time I elevate the chalice and say: THIS IS THE BLOOD OF THE NEW COVENANT WHICH IS POURED OUT FOR YOU AND FOR ALL FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.      DO THIS IN MEMORY OF ME.

Jesus gives us his blood so that we can be forgiven of our sins.  But in turn, out of gratitude, we should want to respond to this great love by being willing to give our life for those who are in need of food and nourishment.   But we cannot do that unless we appreciate the GIFT, like a child who finally understands what a mother has done in this mysterious way to give us life and development from the moment of our conception.  JESUS gives us HIS BLOOD for our LIFE, to give  us real life, something of his life, HIS BLOOD for us to purify us of any sin which can destroy our lives.  WHAT are we going to do in RESPONSE?  The Eucharist is a word which means the ACTION OF GIVING THANKS.  Can we today and more often, GIVE THANKS and then GIVE OUR BODY AND BLOOD FOR THOSE WHO ARE DYING SPIRITUALLY?



Jesus, before he Left the Disciples told them, commanded them, sent them to make DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS, baptizing and teaching all that He commanded, all of his commands, especially to love one another as He has loved us. Then we hear:They were all in one place together and suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, also tongues as of fire and came to rest on each of them and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues of the might acts of God.

This description of the coming of the Holy Spirit gives us much to visualize and consider on this new day of Pentecost.  It tells of the 11 disciples, the Blessed Mother and the other women who had followed Jesus as his disciples, about perhaps 120 believers (Acts 1:15) who are mentioned previously, gathered in the upper room where they were in prayer.  ( We don’t know if all of the 120 were there in the room at that time.)This was the room of the Supper, the room where they hid from the Jews, this was the locked room where Jesus broke in and breathed on them the power of the Resurrection, the power to forgive sins, by the giving of the Spirit of the Father and Son. This is the room where they came back together and waited for this great event to happen, the powerful Spirit of God entering that room full of fear filled men, who then became brave, courageous, witnesses to the Resurrection of Jesus.  They began to speak to ALL NATIONS as Jesus had called them to do: GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS, Baptizing them and teaching them and assuring them that HE would be WITH them till the end of the world.  The change was so dramatic in these men that the people in Jerusalem who heard them thought they were drunks, but Peter assured them in a sort of funny way that it was only 9 o’clock in the morning when a drunk is not yet drunk and speaking with this sort of enthusiasm.

This dramatic change from cowards to DISCIPLES sent out to invite all people of all nations to accept Jesus as the Savior, the Christ, the Messiah, was such a change that we are astounded how this happened.  When they spoke to all people in all their languages, it reminds us of how we now also speak to people in SPANISH or whatever language that is native to the people so that they understand in the CLEAREST way what is being said.  So we also speak in English or Spanish, depending on what background and language the person is best able to understand.  GOD WANTS to communicate clearly to all people!  This is the word CATHOLIC which reminds us that we are sent to speak and invite people of all languages to get acquainted with Jesus and become his Followers, His disciples.  For that reason also, we have BIBLES available in all languages so that people of all languages will understand what is being offered to them.

So are we remembering only an historical event that was the launching of the disciples on their mission? NO it is the ongoing coming of the Holy Spirit into our world like a strong blowing wind that descends on those who are in prayer asking for that power to forgive and forget the sin, that power to go out and make disciples of all people. It happened most dramatically this weekend when 32 men gathered in retreat with a team of 20 men, all speaking in Spanish. These men who came afraid and maybe resistant, are going back to their families with a joy and change of heart to become disciples of Jesus and invite their families to become disciples of Jesus.  They found a new relationship with Jesus that came about from the Holy Spirit of the Father and Son that came upon them in new ways.  They are going out like the disciples, not drunk on alcohol, but full of the spirit of Jesus.

Each of also need to gather in prayer and ask that the Spirit of Jesus come into us like a strong wind and descend on each of us in tongues which can explain the faith as a relationship with Jesus.  We then become His Disciples and invite all to become his Disciples.

A word on the word DISCIPLE:  A disciple is one who follows a teacher, like an apprentice who studies under a great master, or like a master carpenter, a master musician or a noted Surgeon. There is need for study and focus on the ways and wisdom of that special person. WE focus on JESUS! He is the one we learn from and study under.  One of the best ways to study and know Jesus is through the reading of the Bible and the Gospels. Prayer is also very important: TALKING with Jesus each day and when we come to CHURCH. How often we come to church each Sunday out of OBLIGATION and little focus on TALKING AND LISTENING TO JESUS AND THE WORD OF GOD.  How fortunate we are to be called, invited to be His Disciples.

Secondly, we do this together as a group as we gather.  We gather as the 120 people because we have the same Jesus who are following and loving. We all have a common work or mission to carry out, given by Jesus.  We all have a unity of purpose and share a same destiny or goal: Make disciples of all people.  So let us carry out that mission, WITH THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT!  Jesus calls us and sends us out to baptize and teach all that He commanded.  That is our work, that is what we now have the power to do and to teach HOW TO FORGIVE, because we are forgiven by the power of the Spirit of Jesus and the Father. How fortunate we are. Let us break out also of our rooms of fear!

 


 

Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Sunday, July 6, 2014

Introduction to the Liturgy of the Day

Today we resume our numbered Sundays of Ordinary Time, having celebrated all the Sundays of Lent, Easter, and the feast days that follow since the last time we observed a Sunday in Ordinary Time. We will not continue on this course, with a few interruptions, until we celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King at the end of the liturgical year. So let us gather, grateful for God’s, presence in times both extraordinary and ordinary.   

 

Introduction to the Liturgy of the Word

As we resume our Sundays in Ordinary Time, we will hear Gospels that Matthew for most of the rest of this year. You may recall that Matthew wrote for a mixed population of Jews and Gentiles, possibly in Antioch, and in his Gospel Jesus often speaks of God’s care for “the least” and “the little ones.” We resume his Gospel narrative in the midst of the chapters that address the opposition to Jesus from Israel. Today, Jesus is publicly establishing his relationship with the Father and encouraging all who are burdened to come to him. Let us lay down our burdens and listen to his message today.   

 

Decimocuarto Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

6 de Julio 2014

Introducción de la Liturgia del Día

Hoy después de haber celebrado los domingos de Cuaresma y de Pascua, y todas las otras celebraciones que les siguieron, reanudamos el tiempo ordinario con sus domingos enumerados. Ahora continuaremos en este curso, aunque con algunas interrucpciones, hasta celebrar la solemnidad de Cristo Rey al final de año litúrgico. Agradezcamos pues,
aquí reunidos, las presencia de Dios tanto en los momentos extraordinarios como en los ordinarios.  

 

Introducción a la Liturgia de la Palabra

Al reanudar nuestros domingos del tiempo ordinario escucharemos pasajes del Evangelio según San Mateo durante la mayor parte de este año. Puede que recuerden que Mateo escribió para una población mixta de judíos y paganos, posiblemente en Antioquía y en su Evangelio Jesús habla a menudo de cómo Dios protégé a “la gente sencilla” y a los “humildes”. Reanudamos la narración de este Evangelio en medio de los capítulos que abordan la posición a Jesús por parte de Israel. Hoy Jesús establece públicamente su relación con el Padre animando a todos los que están fatigados a que vayan a él. Pon a un lado tus agobios para escuchar el mensaje de Jesús hoy.

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Sunday, July 13, 2014

Introduction to the Liturgy of the Day

On this midsummer Sunday, God has gathered us here to hear the Holy Scriptures and respond with our hearts and our lives. God’s word is always fruitful, if we but listen and heed it. As we continue our liturgy today, let us pray for the grace to be open to God’s word and to find ways to take it to our hearts and make it real in our lives.

 

Introduction to the Liturgy of the Word

Today’s Gospel is the well-known story of the Sower and the seed. Often when we hear this story, we think about who among us is the rocky ground?  Of if the seed has fallen on the path or among the thorns in our own lives. But it may be that the Gospel today is about God’s lavish generosity–the seed of God’s word is flung everywhere, and it takes root in unexpected places, and beats fruit far beyond usual expectations. Isaiah says as much when he says God’s word will not return void. Let us make our hearts ready to receive the abundant and fertile word of God.

Dios nos ha reunido en este domingo a mitad del verano para escuchar las sagradas Escrituras y responderle con nuestro corazón y nuestra vida. La palabra de Dios es siempre fructifera si la escuchamos y le hacemos caso. A medida que nos adentramos en nuestra liturgia de hoy, oremos para recibir la gracia de permanecer abiertos a la palabra de Dios y encontrar las formas de llevarla a nuestro corazón y decidirnos a ponerla en práctica.

 

Introducción a la Liturgia de la Palabra

El Evangelio de hoy nos relata la bien conocida historia de sembrador y la semilla. Al escuchar esta historia pensamos a menudo en quién será el terreno pedregosos entre nosotros o si la semilla ha caído a lo largo del camino o entre los espinos de nuestra vida. Pero bien pudiera ser que el Evangelio de hoy se refiriera más bien a la espléndida generosidad de Dios. La semilla de la palabra de Diso se arroja por dondequiera y echa raíces en los lugares más inesperados, y produce frutos mucho más allá de lo que nosotros normalmente esperamos. Isaías así bien lo expresa al decir que la palabra de Dios no volverá a Dios sin resultados. Dispongamos nuestro corazón a recibir la palabra abundante y fertile de Dios.

Prayer for the selection of an Archbishop

O God, eternal shepherd, who governs your flock with unfailing care, grant in your boundless fatherly love a good and faithful pastor for your people of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. Give wisdom to those in charge of selecting a shepherd for our Church. May your Holy Spirit guide their deliberations and ultimate recommendation to our Holy Father Francis. Gladden us with the gift of a Shepherd who will continue to instruct us by word and example in the teachings of Christ your Son. May he be a man of humility, prayer and dedication, with a heart open to your Spirit and a deep love of your people. This we ask in the name of Jesus, your Son who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen
