who are experiencing a loss, or going through difficult times or
life transitions. Please contact: Deacon Julio Blanco-Eccleston
for assistance as a care receiver or to get involved in the

The parish community of St. Bartholomew extends
its deepest sympathy and prayers to the family and
friends of John Patrick Corrigan, long time
parishioner at St. Bart’‛s, who died on August 24,
2015. A Mass of Christian Burial for John was
celebrated at St. Bartholomew Church on Friday,
September 4. Please keep the soul of the deceased
and his family and friends in your prayers.
SEPTEMBER 6, 2015
St. Bartholomew Parish has been allocated
40 tickets for the Papal Mass at the east
portico of the Basilica of the National
Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and
the University Mall at the Catholic
University of America on Wednesday,
September 23, 4.15 p.m. The breakdown of
ticket allocation is as follows: 20 seats
outside, and 20 standing room only. We will be allocating these
tickets through a lottery system to parishioners who are
registered and active (active as in giving via time, treasure
and/or talent) - please call the Rectory at 301-229-7933 and
leave your name, # of tickets requested and cell number.
There is a limit of two tickets per family, and the closing
date for requests is this Tuesday, September 8. Please be
aware that transportation to the Mass will be extremely
difficult, (nearest Metro stop is Catholic University, and
parking in the area will be nigh on impossible), security will be
very heavy, and you should anticipate long waits and much
standing, irrespective of whether you are fortunate enough to
win a seat.
“Light The City” is back! Prepare to welcome Pope Francis by
bringing the light of peace and prayer to neighborhoods in the
DC area. Join us on Saturday night, September 12th, at
multiple parishes across the archdiocese for this evening of
prayer and street evangelization. Parishes include: St.
Matthew's Cathedral, Our Lady of Lourdes, Epiphany, and Holy
Trinity. Following a prayer service, teams of volunteers will
head out on to the streets and invite passersby to come into
the church to light a candle, pause peacefully in prayer with
the Blessed Sacrament, and talk with a priest. Volunteers are
needed! Sign up at www.adw.org/light and spread the word in
your communities. Thank you!
SOCIAL CONCERNS
The Poor Box for the month of September is for Bethesda
Help, a non-profit, all-volunteer program designed to provide
emergency help to the working poor and others when they are
confronted with an immediate but short-term need.
Bethesda House - a new calendar for the monthly dinner for
Bethesda House has been put up in the Church vestibule.
Please write your name and telephone number according to
your date preference - we need three volunteers for each
month. PLEASE NOTE the new address. Any questions, please
contact Carol Bergin at [email protected] or Livia Gatti at
[email protected]
The Second Collection next week is for the Catholic University
of America. The Catholic University of America (CUA),
established in 1887, is the national university of the Catholic
bishops in the United States - the only institution of higher
education founded by the United States bishops and
chartered by the Vatican. CUA provides and academically
rigorous education, guided by the Catholic intellectual
tradition, to nearly 7,000 students from every geographical
region of the U.S. The university is dedicated to advancing the
dialogue between faith and reason, seeking to discover,
preserve, and impart truth through excellence in teaching and
research, all in service to the Church, nation and the world.
More than 4,000 students directly receive scholarship aid
from this collection, including many from our archdiocese.
Thank you for your support for the collection.
TWENTY-THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
The flowers on the altar this weekend were
sponsored in thanksgiving for Julio and Debbie
Blanco’‛s 21st Wedding Anniversary.
This weekend is Walk with Francis Parish Pledge
Weekend. Celebrate the coming visit of the Holy Father!
At Mass this weekend, you will have the opportunity to
sign a card to pledge to Walk with Francis and pray,
serve, or act in a new way to advance his mission and
ministry in the world. We encourage you to pray
regularly for the Holy Father and learn about the
message of the joy of the Gospel, the mercy of God and
the love of Christ. Serve by reaching out and caring for
those in need and supporting charitable efforts in our
community and beyond. Act to promote human life and
dignity, justice and peace, family life and religious
freedom, care for creation and the common good. Once
you have taken the pledge, challenge family, friends, and
co-workers to do the same! Find more information or
take the pledge online at WalkwithFrancis.org. Share
your pledge on social media and challenge others using
#WalkwithFrancis. In today’‛s First Reading we heard
Joshua’‛s pledge, “As for me and my household, we will
serve the LORD”. How will you serve the Lord this week?
The best way to
#WalkwithFrancis!

Walk with Francis by Helping an Unaccompanied
Immigrant Child
In anticipation of Pope Francis’‛ visit to Washington, D.C.
in September, Catholic Charities together with local
parishes is encouraging area residents to Walk with
Francis by helping the poor and marginalized in our
community.
Catholic Charities Immigration Legal
Services (ILS) asks area legal professionals to make this
pledge by agreeing to represent an unaccompanied minor
to obtain legal status in the United States. Many of
these children have escaped horrific violence and are
relying on volunteer attorneys in order to remain in the
United States safe from harm in their home
countries. When represented by an attorney, these
children are five times more likely to be able to remain
in the United States than when they are not. ILS trains
and mentors volunteer attorney as well as provides
interpreters and other resources to help ensure the
successful
representation
of
these
deserving
clients. Currently there is a backlog of over seventy
children waiting for representation and Catholic
Charities is asking your parish to agree to assist a
minimum of two unaccompanied minors. Please join
Monsignor Enzler and Cardinal Donald Wuerl and make
your commitment to walk with Francis by representing
an
immigrant
child.
Contact
Jim
Feroli
at
[email protected]
to
get
information on trainings and cases, and take the first
step in your walk with Francis. During his visit, Catholic
Charities will be presenting the Pope with an album of
“Walk with Francis” volunteers and we would like to
include your parish’‛s contribution.

VIGESIMO TERCER DOMINGO ORDINARIO
06 DE SETIEMBRE DE 2015
Los milagros confirman la divinidad de Jesucristo. Sólo
Dios tiene poder sobre la vida y la muerte, sobre la
salud y la enfermedad, sobre los elementos de la
naturaleza. La curación del sordomudo se realiza en
este contexto. Es así que el milagro se realiza en
clima de oración. Jesús impone las manos al
sordomudo, mira al cielo y manda con poder: Effetá
(esto es, ábrete). Y al momento se la abrieron los
oídos, se le soltó la traba de la lengua y hablaba sin
dificultad. Nuestro Salvador es Jesucristo. Es Dios con
nosotros y para nosotros. Tiene la plenitud de la
divinidad y del poder: Es el amor, la misericordia, la
fortaleza, la valentía. Tiene poder para devolvernos la
vista, el oído, el andar, el hablar. Es el manantial de
donde brota el agua para nuestra tierra reseca.
