PASTOR’S COLUMN
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I saw this reflection in Bringing Home the Word published by Ligouri Publications and
wanted to share it with you.
RECEIVE ONE ANOTHER IN MY NAME
The day will come when an instruction I give my daughter – “Please make your bed,”
“Don’t forget your lunch money,” or “Stop hitting your brother over the head” – will go in
one ear and out the other: Five minutes later the bed will be unmade, the lunch money forgotten, the brother still getting a bruising. I’m sure most parents have wondered how their
child can misunderstand perfectly clear instructions.
I imagine Jesus felt similarly about His disciples in today’s Gospel. Jesus teaches about
His suffering and death – a time of utter vulnerability and humiliation. Yet not moments
later, His disciples are arguing about who is the greatest – as if they hadn’t heard anything
He said. He must have been shocked. But as a good teacher, He reiterates His message with
an example. He brings a child forth and actually identifies Himself with the child: “Whoever
receives one child such as this in my name, receives me.”
In Jesus’ time, those who were dependent and couldn’t provide for themselves – children
included – had no social status or importance. Jesus claimed to be one of the vulnerable and
dependent – in stark contrast to His disciples’ arguments about who is the greatest.
Today, who are the vulnerable people Jesus identifies with? Perhaps a single parent who
relies on the welfare system for survival. Perhaps a lonely elderly woman plagued with illness in a nursing home. Perhaps the man who’s a regular at your parish’s food pantry. Do
we recognize Jesus in these people, or do we dismiss them as burdensome to society as we
seek more for ourselves?
Question for Reflection:
Does Jesus need to reiterate His message to us again,
just as He did to His disciples?
Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time
WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES
Philadelphia ~ September 22 - 27
Did you know? The World Meeting of Families
event was established by Pope St. John Paul II
in 1994. It is held every three years in cities
across the world.
2015 is the first time it will be in the United
States. Its goals are (1) to strengthen family
bonds and (2) to give witness to the fundamental role of the family in society.
World Meeting of Families Prayer
God and Father of us all,
in Jesus, your Son and our Savior,
you have made us your sons and daughters
in the family of the Church.
May your grace and love help our families
in every part of the world be united to one another
in fidelity to the Gospel.
May the example of the Holy Family,
with the aid of your Holy Spirit,
guide all families, especially those most troubled,
to be homes of communion and prayer
and to always seek your truth and live in your love.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

WE NEED YOUR HELP
GOVERNOR BROWN VETO PHYSICIAN-ASSISTED SUICIDE
BILL ABX2-15
Contact Governor Brown right away and
urge him to veto this very dangerous bill that
would legalize physician assisted suicide.
History repeatedly shows this is the path to
euthanasia. The disabled, elderly, and poor
would be especially vulnerable when costly
treatment could be replaced with cheaper lifeending drugs.
Under a veil of “compassion”, this bill destroys the medical credo of “Do No Harm.” ABx2
-15 would help make health care rationing and
death panels a reality.
Don’t delay! The Governor intends to decide
before September 29.

Virtus Certification for all ADULTS
training as Lectors or Eucharistic Ministers
You do NOT need to attend:
 If you have an updated Virtus Training
 If you are under 18 years old

Make more time for prayer.
Spending time together is
the best way to get to know
God better. Get up early,
pause before meals, go to
bed later.

Be a voice in the wilderness. Don’t worry if you are the only one saying or doing the right thing.

Learn to let it go. Think carefully before
arguing, fighting, disagreeing, or criticizing.
Be an instrument of peace.

Share your faith. Talk about God with anyone
who will listen. He doesn’t want us to keep His
love all to ourselves. We have to pass it on.

Read Scripture every day. Devote time to
studying a book of the Bible.

Practice forgiveness and learn to be forgiven.

Be a domestic church. Offer your home as a
place for friendship and hospitality.

Walk away. Leave when the conversation or
jokes get vulgar, racist or intolerant. If you
stay, and say nothing, you give silent
approval.

Avoid gossip. Work hard to avoid gossip and
or speculating about other people. Remember,
there’s no way to know someone else’s heart
– leave that to God.

Dress modestly. Avoid outfits that call attention to yourself inappropriately. That kind of
attention distracts people from noticing the
practice of your faith.

Don’t give up. No matter what your struggle,
remember that no matter how many times
you fail, God will never leave you.

Fear not. It’s human to fear trouble, illness,
pain or even death. But God’s children know
that He will always provide what we need.

KIDS CORNER
SAFEGUARD THE CHILDREN
A GOOD PHOTO COULD SAVE A CHILD’S LIFE
Jesus told His disciples,
“The Son of Man is to be handed
over to men and they will
kill Him, and three days after
His death He will rise.”
One of the most important tools for law enforcement to use in the case of a missing child is an updated (every six months), good school-portrait quality, head-and-shoulders color photograph of the
child in which the face is clearly seen.
The background should be plain or solid so it
does not distract from the subject. When possible,
the photograph should be in a digitized form, and
available on a compact disk (CD), as opposed to just
a hard copy. This minimizes the time necessary to
scan, resize, and make color corrects before disseminating it to law enforcement. The photograph
should have space for accurate, narrative description
useful to identify the child such as name, nickname,
height, weight, sex, age, eye color, identifying
marks, glasses, and braces.
For more information, call Victims Assistance
Ministry: (213) 637-7650.
STEWARDSHIP
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or
store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds
them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

SOMETHINGS NEVER CHANGE
Adam bit the apple and, feeling great
shame, covered himself with a fig tree leaf.
Eve, too, felt shame and covered
herself with a fig tree leaf. Then
she went behind the bush to try
on a maple tree leaf, a sycamore
tree leaf, and an oak tree leaf.

MINISTERIO HISPANO
Queridos Hermanos y Hermanas en Cristo,
Vi esta reflexión en Bringing Home the Word publicada por Ligouri Publications y quiero
compartirla con ustedes.
RECIBANSE UNO AL OTRO EN MI NOMBRE
El día vendrá cuando le de una instrucción a mi hija – "Por favor, haz tu cama," "No
olvides el dinero de tu almuerzo", o "Deja de golpear a tu hermano en la cabeza" – le
entrará por un oído y saldrá por el otro: cinco minutos más tarde la cama estará desecha, el
dinero del almuerzo olvidado, el hermano sigue recibiendo golpes. Estoy seguro de que la
mayoría de los padres se han preguntado cómo su niño puede malinterpretar las
instrucciones perfectamente claras.
Me imagino que Jesús sentía algo similar con sus discípulos en el Evangelio de hoy. Jesús
enseña acerca de su sufrimiento y muerte – un tiempo de absoluta vulnerabilidad y
humillación. Sin embargo momentos más tarde, sus discípulos están discutiendo sobre quién
es el más grande-como si ellos no hubiesen escuchado nada de lo que Jesús dijo. Él debe
haberse sorprendido. Pero como un buen maestro, él reitera su mensaje con un ejemplo. Él
trae a un niño y se identifica realmente con el niño: "Quien recibe a un niño como éste en
mi nombre, me recibe a mi."
En tiempos de Jesús, aquellos que dependían de alguien y no se valían por sí mismos –
incluyendo los niños – no tenían importancia ni estatus social. Jesús afirma que es uno de
los vulnerables y dependientes – en contraste con los argumentos de sus discípulos acerca
de quién era el más grande.
Hoy en día, ¿quiénes son las personas vulnerables con que identifica Jesús? Tal vez una
madre soltera que se basa en el sistema de bienestar social para la supervivencia. O tal vez
una solitaria anciana plagada con enfermedades en un hogar de ancianos. O quizás es el
hombre que regularmente recibe la despensa de alimentos de su parroquia. ¿Reconocemos
a Jesús en estas personas, o los catalogamos como una carga a la sociedad mientras
buscamos más para nosotros mismos?
PREGUNTA PARA REFLEXIONAR:
¿Necesita Jesús reiterar su mensaje de nuevo a nosotros,
así como lo hizo con sus discípulos?

PROTEGIENDO LOS NIÑOS
UNA BUENA FOTOGRAFÍA PUEDE SALVAR LA
VIDA DE UN NIÑO
Una de las herramientas más importantes que
las autoridades pueden utilizar en el caso de un niño
perdido es una fotografía reciente (de al menos seis
meses anteriores) del tipo de retrato escolar a color,
que lo muestre de hombros a la cabeza con el rostro
completamente visible.
El fondo debe ser claro o de color oscuro para
que no distraiga del sujeto. Si es posible, la
fotografía debería estar disponible no solamente en
papel, sino también en forma digital y en un disco
compacto (CD).
Esto disminuirá considerablemente el tiempo
necesario para cambiar el tamaño, copiar, y corregir
el color de la fotografía antes de entregarla a las
autoridades. La fotografía debe tener espacio para
anotar una descripción exacta y útil para identificar
al niño, tal como el nombre, apodo, estatura, peso,
genero (femenino o masculino), edad, color de ojos,
marcas identificadoras, anteojos y frenos dentales.
Para más información llamar al Ministerio de
Ayuda a Víctimas, (213) 637-7650.
