HEALING AND ANOINTING OF THE SICK second Wednesday of the month after 12:10 PM Mass
June 19, 2016, Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Letter From The Pastor
Dear Parishioners:
A couple of weeks ago, someone asked me a question about whether coming late to
Mass is a sin. She said that her pastor growing up told her that as long as you got to Mass
before the Gospel and did not leave until the priest had received communion one fulfilled
the duty to attend Mass.
Part of the problem of answering this question is akin to answering a young man who
asks, “How little can I spend on a date for it to count as a date?” Asking that
question is obviously a plea to the minimalistic attitude toward the other. We
understand why that type of question makes the date all about oneself, not the one being
asked out.
“So, what’s the answer?” Actually, there is no official rule. Our Church is rather lenient because life can always
throw curve balls; car won’t start, child gets sick, I over sleep [from
a hangover does not count], etc. The real question is, “Why?”
Am I being careless, or lazy, or irreverent, or proud, etc.? We
are invited by the Lord to be holy and there is no better help here
on earth than coming together with my faith family and sharing the
family meal of the Eucharist.
Each of us can make sure that we are not the reason my family
is late. I should get up and get ready without being told seven
times. I can help with younger brothers and sisters. I can stop
complaining about going to Mass and start paying attention to the
one I am going to Mass to adore.
We need to stop using the weakness of others to bolster our own weakness; “Well so and so doesn’t go to
Mass either!” I tried this once on my dad and he gave me his favorite answer, “So?” After all these years, I still
have not come up with a good answer. I pressed him for an explanation and he replied that we are a family and
this is what we do — can’t argue with that.
This person pressed me for a more specific answer. I would say that if we came in after the
consecration of the Mass we probably should wait and not receive communion at that Mass but go to the next
Mass (if we’re talking about Sunday or Holy Day Mass). Since weekday Mass is not obligatory we could receive
“Are there any official rules about how to dress for Mass?” “Yes,” and “No,” is the best answer. To
understand the answer we should once again examine why we go to Mass. We attend Mass to show
respect, honor, adoration, humility, and recognize in our lives our creator. This does NOT mean we have to wear
the absolute best outfit we have. Going to Mass is different from going to prom or a wedding.
On the other hand, we aren’t going to the beach either. I think most would agree that swim trunks or a bikini
are not proper clothes for Mass. That’s the easy part. Is anything we wear OK, is a more difficult question. First,
whatever we wear ought to be modest, respectful, clean, etc. We ought not to wear clothes just to show off and
prove we could care less.
We should all avoid being too casual with the things of God. No one reading this would go before a judge
about a simple traffic ticket dressed too casually. God Our Father deserves at least as much respect as the earthly
judge. Sunday Mass is of much higher rank than a weekday Mass. Sometimes we find ourselves with a few extra
minutes and we drop in for Mass. Great! We may not be dressed as neatly as on Sunday, but come anyway. On
Sunday, since we know after every Saturday comes a Sunday, we can plan and work to make it very special by
the way we pay attention to time, get dressed up a bit, work a bit harder to be loving to our brothers and sisters,
etc. After all, it is Love’s day for loving him and one another.
Pax et bonum,
Msgr. Bill

The top five happiest professions, according to University

What would it be like to make the choice to live a celibate
life? Sister Julie, in the blog “A Nun’s Life Ministry,” recalls what her mentor told her when Julie fell in love with
someone as she discerned a religious vocation.
“If we lose the capacity to fall in love,” the mentor said,
then we lose the ability to truly open our hearts to God, to
the people with whom we live and minister, with God’s
beautiful creation.” Falling in love doesn’t mean, Sister
Julie came to understand, that we have to act on it.
Catholic priests in Australia discussed their choice with a
journalist this way: “It gives me plenty of time to deal with
people who come to me for help; more time for my work. It
also allows me an intimacy with Jesus in the sense that He
is the only one I come to as my ultimate, intimate companion; rather than any non-divine person.” “We discussed celibacy a lot in the seminary. We looked at it not as a giving
up, but a giving for. Pray for Vocations!

The great fifty-day celebration of Easter has concluded,
as have the feasts honoring the Holy Trinity and the Body
and Blood of Christ. Last week we began a long stretch
of Ordinary Time that will bring us to late November.
Saint Paul tells us today that those who are baptized
“have clothed yourselves with Christ” (Galatians 3:27).
This scripture is echoed in the Church’s baptism ritual
when we sing, “You have put on Christ, in him you have
been baptized.” This message is inspiring and sobering at
the same time, for in today’s Gospel, we get to the heart
of what it means to be clothed in Christ. The Lord tells
us, “If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny
himself and take up his cross daily and follow me” (Luke
9:23). For the next twenty-two weeks we are called to
take up the cross and, with Saint Luke as our guide, fol-
Saints and Special Observances
Sunday: Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time;
Father’s Day; Julian Calendar Pentecost
Monday: Summer begins
Tuesday: St. Aloysius Gonzaga
Wednesday: St. Paulinus of Nola;
Ss. John Fisher and Thomas More
Friday: The Nativity of St. John the Baptist
Today’s Readings
First Reading — Zechariah foretells the Messiah
(Zechariah 12:10-11; 13:1).
Psalm — My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God
(Psalm 63).
Second Reading — There are no distinctions or divisions; we all belong to Christ (Galatians 3:26-29).
Gospel — Peter proclaims Jesus as the Christ; Jesus
speaks of his great suffering to come (Luke 9:18-24).
It’s almost midsummer day! One of the great hidden
treasures of our liturgical calendar occurs this week.
There are only three “nativity” feasts on our calendar: for
the Lord, the Blessed Mother (September 8), and the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist on June 24. Friday’s date
is anchored by the Annunciation (March 25), when Mary
learns not only of her own child’s advent, but of Elizabeth’s child. We are exactly half a year away from
Christmas Eve. There are strong traditions around this
feast. Just as the winter solstice provides a rich vocabulary for Christmas, so does the abundance of light at midsummer inform this celebration. Just as at Christmas, a
religious festival spills over into culture. As summer light
reaches its peak, the sun-drenched zones of northern Europe see people staying up all night, kindling “St. John’s
Fires” in the long summer twilight. Bonfires seem to be
the unifying force in all these celebrations, kindled along
the shores of the St. Lawrence in Quebec and Montreal,
with harbor illuminations in France. You may be most
interested in the custom in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the
Baptist’s own city. People there will leap into the sea between midnight and dawn to honor John. Why not find
your way to a pool, a lake, or a sandy beach this week
and plunge in to recall your baptism? It’s a tradition!

Décimosegundo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
19 de junio de 2016
La primera vez que yo presencié el bautismo de un adulto dentro de la Vigilia Pascual, me impresionó
mucho el impacto que el sacramento parecía haber tenido sobre uno de los bautizados en particular. José se había
criado en la fe judía, y había abrazado la fe cristiana ya bastante mayor. Nuestra parroquia había bautizado once
adultos esa noche, y José fue uno de los últimos en bautizarse.
Como yo estaba tocando el órgano, podía ver a los recién bautizados muy de cerca según iban saliendo de la fuente bautismal.
Cuando José, que normalmente tenía una cara muy seria, salió de
entre las aguas, su expresión estaba absolutamente radiante. Cuando él iba saliendo de la fuente, comencé a tocar la introducción a
la aclamación, y las voces de la comunidad atronaron hasta el techo de la iglesia cantando “Todos los que se han sumergido en
Cristo, de él se han revestido, ¡Aleluya! ¡Aleluya!”. No podía contener los deseos de hablar con José sobre esta experiencia.
Una semana más tarde, yo estaba junto a José en un grupo de los recién bautizados, y le pregunté que cómo se sentía uno al recibir el bautismo. Me dijo: “Cuando salí del agua y miré las caras de la gente que llenaban
la iglesia, me di cuenta de que ahora sí que era uno con ellos”. La verdad es que, esa noche José se había revestido de Cristo en muchas maneras. Revestirse de Cristo significa que nos hacemos Cristo unos para otros. También
significa que escuchamos el llamado de Cristo en el Evangelio de hoy, de cargar nuestra cruz diariamente y seguirlo. Y más aun, significa que nos revestimos de otra manifestación de Cristo en nuestra experiencia cristiana,
la de ser parte de una comunidad que es el Cuerpo místico de Cristo. Una cosa muy consoladora en nuestra vida
cristiana es que nunca cargamos nuestra cruz solos. Siempre tenemos el apoyo y el amor de ese Cuerpo de Cristo.
Ahora que los largos meses del tiempo ordinario se abren ante nuestra vista, prometamos apoyarnos unos a otros
en el diario cargar de nuestras cruces y seguir las huellas de Cristo, en quien hemos sido bautizados.
Lecturas de hoy: Zacarías 12:10–11; 13:1; Salmo 63:2–6, 8–9; Gálatas 3:26–29; Lucas 9:18–24

Taller en español:
"Hijo: Ahí tienes a tu Madre” (Jn 19, 27)
El objetivo de este taller es cecer en amor a nuestra Madre María
conociendo su papel fundamental en la historia de nuestra Salvación. La
charla tratará sobre la importancia de María en la historia de nuestra
Salvación a la Luz de las Sagradas Escrituras. Se enfatizará en el hecho de
que Dios contó con María para salvarnos y nos la entregó como Madre
para que contemos con Ella como ayuda para alcanzar nuestra salvación.
Presentadora: Verónica López. Dónde: Salón Grande, MJ Centro
Parroquial. Cuándo: jueves 30 de junio, 7:00 PM.
SEGUIR LOS PASOS A CRISTO La gran celebración
de cincuenta días de la Pascua ha concluido, al igual que
las fiestas en honor a la Santísima Trinidad y al Cuerpo y
la Sangre de Cristo. La semana pasada comenzamos el
largo tramo del Tiempo Ordinario que nos llevará hasta el
final de noviembre. San Pablo nos dice hoy que los que
han sido bautizados “se han revestido de Cristo” (Gálatas
3:27). Este mensaje es inspirador y al mismo tiempo nos
alecciona, ya que en el Evangelio de hoy, vamos al centro
de lo que significa estar revestidos de Cristo. El Señor nos
dice, “si alguno quiere acompañarme, que no se busque a
sí mismo, que tome su cruz de cada día y me siga” (Lucas
9:23). Durante las veinte y dos semanas que siguen somos
llamados a tomar la cruz y, con san Lucas como guía, seguir en los pasos a Cristo. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
una noche mientras los discípulos estaban en la barca de
Pedro, Jesús vino hacía ellos caminando sobre el mar. Ellos
se espantaron creyendo que era un fantasma de algún pescador pero él los calmó diciendo “¡Ánimo!, que soy yo; no
teman”. Debió ser impactante ver al Señor caminar sobre
las aguas, especialmente en una época donde las aguas venían consideradas como el caos. En varias partes de latinoamerica los fieles celebran a distintos santos con procesiones
de barcos sobre ríos o mares. En el Puerto de Paita, Perú se
llevan a los santos Pedro y Pablo en una procesión acuática.
San Pedro, que fue pescador, está en casa sobre la barca, ya
que normalmente son barcas de pescadores las que forman
la procesión. Esta procesión reconoce el caos del mar reconociendo a los pescadores, que durante el año perdieron sus
vidas en el mar, con guirnaldas lanzadas a la bahía. Pero,
esta procesión no se espanta del mar ya que es una fiesta en
honor de dos siervos de aquel que camina sobre las aguas,
dominando el mar. —Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, © Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.

Segunda lectura — Todos son uno en Cristo Jesús
