Bulletin Bites
The rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and make their authority over them felt. But it shall not be so among you.
The disciples of Jesus were not immune to temptations for power and prestige. Despite all that Jesus
had taught them and all they had seen him do, they still thought, or hoped, that Jesus had come to establish an
earthly kingdom that would free them of the oppression of their Roman conquerors and the Jewish leaders.
They had visions of “Doing unto others what had been done to them.” Jesus ask them if they could do what he
knew he had to do. They had no clue what he meant, but they enthusiastically said, “Yes, we can.” Jesus does
not condemn them for their human weakness of pride and envy, but he tells them that their greatness will be
determined, not by wealth, power and prestige, but by the way they serve others, by
becoming a slave to all. That certainly is not what James and John, or any of the
other disciples, had in mind. It would not be until Jesus rose from the dead and
served them meals that they would begin to understand. We have their testimony in
the Scripture that they understood. Do we understand?

Prayer to Saint Jude
Most holy Apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church
honors and invokes you universally as
the patron of hopeless cases, of things
despaired of. Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone; make use, I implore you,
of this particular privilege accorded to
you, to bring visible and speedy help,
where help is almost despaired of. Come
to my assistance in this great need, that I
may receive the consolations and succor
of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly (here
make your request), so that I may bless
God with you and all the elect forever.
I promise you, O blessed St. Jude, to be
ever mindful of this great favor, and I
will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and to do all in
my power to encourage devotion to you.
Amen.
A huge “Thank-you” to all who made
our two dances a great success!
May our Lord pour His blessings upon you!
The 29TH Sunday in Ordinary Time ~ XXIX Domingo Ordinario
PENSAMIENTOS DEL BOLETIN
Los gobernantes sobre los gentiles, el Señor sobre ellos,
y haz tu autoridad hacerse sentir sobre ellos; pero no sera entre ustedes.
Los dicipulos de Jesus no estaban exentos a tentaciones de poder y prestigio. A pesar de las
enseñanzas de Jesus, y todo lo que le vieron hacer; aun pensaban o esperaban que Jesus habria venido para
establecer un reinado terrenal que los libraria de la opresion de conquistadores romanos y lideres judios.
Tenian visiones de “hacer a otros lo que les han hecho a ellos”. Jesus les pregunto si
podian hacer lo que el sabia debia hacer. No tenian idea lo que les decia, pero con entusiasmo dijeron “si, podemos”. Jesus no los condena por su debilidad humana de
orgullo y envidia, pero les dijo que su grandeza sera determinada, no por sus riquezas,
poder o prestigio; pero por la forma que sirven a otros siendo esclavos de todos. Esto
ciertamente no era lo que Juan, o cualquier otro dicipulo, tenian en mente. No seria
hasta que Jesus surgio de entre los muertos y les sirvio comida que comenzaron a entender. Tenemos su testimonio en las escrituras que entendieron. Entendemos nosotros?

San Judas Tadeo nació en Caná de Galilea, era
agricultor. Su padre fue Alfeo Cleofás, hermano de San José y su madre María Antera,
prima hermana de María Santísima. Tuvo
quatro hermanos: Santiago el Menor, apóstol;
José llamado el Justo; Simón,Obispo de Jerusalén y María Salomé, madre de Santiago el
Mayor y de San Juan Evangelista. El reservado
y paciente agrónomo, al escuchar la palabra de
su primo Jesús, dejo su trabajo para integrarse a
la legión de discípulos del Mesías, convirtiéndose en uno de sus apóstoles; siendo el más
grande y fervoroso predicador de la doctrina del
Maestro. Llevo el mensaje mesiánico hacia las
regiones de Galilea, Judea, Asia, Egipto, Eufrates, Tigris, Libia, Samaria, Edesa y Babilonia, llegando hasta los confines de Siria y Persia. En su paso por estos lugares sufrió crueles
persecuciones, más ello no lo detuvo para realizar numerosos prodigios y con su predica
transformo cientos de personas al cristianismo,
entre ellos al Rey Acab de Babilonia. Transitando por numerosos caminos con su hermano
Simón, llego a Persia donde todas las mujeres
eran iguales "madre, tía, hermanas, sobrinas";
los muertos eran llevados a los bosques para
que fueran devorados por los animales, entre
otros tratos y actos que atentaban contra los
valores morales y cristianos. San Judas recorrió
todo el territorio, predicó corrigiendo todos los
vicios y errores, logrando convertirlos a todos
(cien mil habitantes); bautizó y dio la
confirmación e hizo matrimonios masivos.
Con la ayuda de todos levanto capillas donde el
pueblo iba a rezar y a escuchar el Sermón de
los Apóstoles; hizo que enterrasen a sus muertos y todos lograsen vivir felices cumpliendo
con la Ley de Dios y sus principios valorativos.
Oración a San Judas Tadeo
¡Santo Apóstol San Judas, fiel siervo y amigo
de Jesús!, la Iglesia te honra e invoca universalmente, como el patrón de los casos difíciles
y desesperados. Ruega por mi, estoy solo y
sin ayuda.
Te imploro hagas uso del privilegio especial
que se te ha concedido, de socorrer pronto y
visiblemente cuando casi se ha perdido toda
esperanza. Ven en mi ayuda en esta gran
necesidad, para que pueda recibir consuelo y
socorro del cielo en todas mis necesidades,
tribulaciones y sufrimientos, particularmente
(haga aquí su petición), y para que pueda
alabar a Dios contigo y con todos los elegidos
por siempre.
Te doy las gracias glorioso San Judas, y prometo nunca olvidarme de este gran favor,
honrarte siempre como mi patrono especial y
poderoso y, con agradecimiento hacer todo lo
que pueda para fomentar tu devoción. Amén.

St. Alphonsus Liguori wrote:
“Of all devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the
greatest after the Sacraments, the one dearest to God and the one most
helpful to us”. The Eucharist is a priceless treasure: By not only
celebrating the Eucharist, but also by praying before It outside of Mass,
we are enabled to make contact with the very wellsprings of Grace ..."

Adoration begins after 8:15 Mass; ends with Benediction at 11:50 am.
