Sunday, October 4, 2015 Twenty Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time
Dear sisters and brothers of Holy Family,
“The Rosary is a prayer that always accompanies me; it is also the prayer of the ordi nary
people and the saints … it a prayer from my heart.” (Pope Francis, preface to the book, "Il
Rosario. Preghiera del cuore”, May 13, 2014 ). October is the month dedicated especially to the
Holy Rosary and respect life. Rosary is a beautiful prayer in which we follow
Jesus with our
blessed mother meditating the great mysteries of our salvation history. It's a very simple, biblical and
powerful prayer. Our beloved Blessed Virgin Mary appeared in Lourdes and Fatima with a Rosary in her
hand and requested us to pray rosary for the repentance of sinners and conversion of the world. Let us make
it a habit and teach our children to pray the rosary every day and it will make a great difference in our family
and spiritual life. Let us also ask the intercession of our blessed mother for the success of the pro-life movements
of the Church.
On behalf of our parish family I would like to congratulate and thank the 4th Holy Family
Pageant winners: Raegan Kay (Miss Holy Family), Brandon Ikwuagwu (Mister Holy Family), Laila M Sorina (Holy
Family Princess, Julissa DeLuna (Holy Family Duchess). Together these children raised $14,000 for our building fund!
Thanks to the parents of these children for their support and also to our Gospel choir for their hard work and great stewardship! May the good Lord bless you for your amazing stewardship!
We have good news! We have received the permit from TexDot for the construction of our parking lot. Now we have to get the Missouri City permit to start our construction. Thanks to Paul Czervinske and the steering committee for the tireless hard work and dedication.
Next Sunday, October 11th, will be our Fall Festival. It's our parish family festival and it's the
great time to gather together with our fellow family members for fun and fellowship. As you know it helps us a lot also
with our parish operating budget. We have amazing prizes including a beautiful car, Chevrolet Cruze for our raffle this
year. Ruben Mendez, Domingo Sales and the committee members were preparing so hard for months for our Fall Festival. I appreciate and thank them all for their love, dedication and hard work. Please pray for good weather; do come and
bring your friends and families to enjoy our family festival. Let us grow together in Christ as one family of God!
Fr. Sunny.
Queridos Hermanos y Hermanas,
“El Rosario es una oración que siempre me acompaña, también es la oración de la gente
ordinaria y los santos… es una oración de mi corazón.” (El prefacio del libro del Papa
Francisco "el Rosario. Plegaria del corazón”, Mayo 13, 2014). Octubre es el mes dedicado
especialmente al Santo Rosario y el respeto a la vida. El Rosario es una bella oración en la cual
seguimos a Jesús con nuestra Santa Madre meditando los grandes misterios de la historia de nues
tra salvación. Es una simple y poderosa oración bíblica. Nuestra amada y Bendecida Virgen María se
apareció en Lourdes y Fátima con un Rosario en su mano y nos pidió que rezáramos el rosario por el
arrepentimiento de los pecados y la conversión del mundo. Hagamos el hábito y enseñemos a nuestros ni
ños a orar el Rosario todos los días y así hacer una gran diferencia en nuestra familia y en nuestra vida espi
ritual. También pidamos por la intercesión de nuestra Santa Madre por el éxito del movimiento pro-vida de la
Iglesia.
En nombre de nuestra familia parroquial, quiero felicitar y agradecer a los ganadores del 4o
concurso de Rey y Reina de Holy Family: Raegan Kay (Reina- Holy Family) Brandon Ikwuagwu (Rey-Holy Family) Laila M Sorina (Princesa- Holy Family) Julissa De Luna (Duquesa- Holy Family). Unidos estos niños recaudaron $14,000
para nuestro fondo de edificios. Gracias también a los padres de estos niños por su apoyo y también al Coro Evangélico
por la organización de este evento. Que el buen Señor los bendiga por su compromiso.
¡Tenemos buenas noticias! Hemos recibido el permiso de “Texdot” para la construcción de nuestro
estacionamiento. Ahora que obtener el permiso de Missouri City para empezar la construcción. Gracias al comité de los
edificios por su incansable esfuerzo y dedicación.
El próximo domingo 11 de Octubre, tendremos nuestro Festival de Otoño. Este es nuestro festival
familiar y es un gran momento para reunirnos con la familia parroquial y disfrutar la camaradería. Como sabrán esto
nos ayuda en nuestro presupuesto operativo parroquial. Tenemos grandes premios en nuestra gran rifa incluyendo un
maravilloso Chevrolet Cruz. Gracias al Comité organizador del Festival que trabajaron mucho; estoy muy agradecido
por su magnífica labor, amor y dedicación. Por favor oremos por que el clima nos permita gozar de este tiempo, traiga a
toda su familia y amigos. Crezcamos unidos en Cristo como una familia de Dios.
Fr. Sunny.

would not love our lives so much as to shrink from
death. O Lord, hear our prayer.

upcoming events and mass schedules, pictures and much
more. We invite all parish organizations to submit their
news and pictures. Thank you!
TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
The old world of what we call canonical penance, or
the extraordinary one time public repentance of sinners,
began to collapse with the conversion of Constantine in
the early fourth century. It tottered for a hundred years or
so and then virtually disappeared. It served an isolated
and persecuted church well, but once people began seeking baptism for economic and political privilege, a real
pastoral crisis exploded. There were more lukewarm
Christians afoot, and some “barbarians” rampaging
through the ruins accepted baptism just because their
leaders did.
As the old structures collapsed, people who still
sought some sort of public conversion scampered off to
the desert to live in monastic isolation. Penance disappeared from the parish scene, and the old bench where
hungry penitents used to beg for prayers was empty.
Some bishops faced the crisis by inventing alternate
means of discipline, all more private than public. A person might be asked to refrain from receiving Communion
for a time, or even to accept some sort of corporal punishment (the pedigree of the stocks and scarlet letters of colonial America). This had the effect of separating the sinner from the prayerful intercession of the gathered church,
and made an already bad situation worse. Before long, the
pastoral system of penance was in a shambles, and sadly
irrelevant to ordinary Christians.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
El matrimonio es una vocación y estilo de vida sagrado, instituido por Dios, mismo que no debe tomarse a la
ligera. Así como no se concede el sacramento del orden a
un varón que no se ha preparado debidamente, una persona que no se ha preparado debidamente, no debe ser admitida al sacramento del matrimonio. Así como a las religiosas y los religiosos no profesan una consagración de vida
sin antes haberse asegurado de su motivación, la pareja
comprometida debe ver y evaluar muy bien lo que está haciendo y asegurarse de que no haya algún impedimento
para el matrimonio. Han de reconocer concientemente
cuál es la motivación por la cual quieren unir su vida.
Para que un matrimonio sea válido, según las leyes de
la Iglesia, los contrayentes deben tener una edad apropiada, saber lo que hacen y que no haya impedimento alguno,
por ejemplo, la presión de la familia, embarazo prematuro
o el deseo de salir de la casa familiar. Los dos deben consentir una vida de esposos por el resto de su vida y ser
siempre fieles el uno al otro. Este compromiso debe hacerse públicamente, ante un miembro del clero y dos testigos.
Cumplidos todos estos requisitos, los dos se hacen una sola
carne, como dice Jesús.

Sunday, October 11, 2015 Twenty Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time
DISCIPLESHIP AND WEALTH
Sometimes we get the idea that having material wealth is a bad thing. We may convince ourselves that it is the poor
who are favored. In today’s readings, we discover that material wealth alone does not keep us from discipleship. We will
see that there are other gifts more important than material wealth, but even so, it is how we use our gifts that matters
most.
Today’s scriptures point to the value of the gifts of wisdom, trusting in God, and letting our actions reflect the love
of God from within. It is not gold that causes us to fall, but rather the desire for gold above all other things. From the
readings in Wisdom and Hebrews, we find the source of God’s gifts in our lives. Wisdom is more valuable than worldly
possessions. In Hebrews, we are challenged to look at our own values and admit honestly what controls our lives.
Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
TODAY’S READINGS
First Reading — I pleaded, and the spirit of wisdom came to me. All good things together came to me in her company
(Wisdom 7:7-11).
Psalm — Fill us with your love, O Lord, and we will sing for joy! (Psalm 90).
Second Reading — Indeed the word of God is living and effective (Hebrews 4:12-13).
Gospel — It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of
God (Mark 10:17-30 [17-27]).

LOS DISCÍPULOS Y LA RIQUEZA
A veces creemos que tener riquezas materiales es algo malo. Nos convencemos a nosotros mismos que los pobres
son los más favorecidos. En las lecturas de hoy, descubrimos que las riquezas materiales no son lo único que nos impide
ser discípulos. Ya veremos que hay otros dones más importantes que esas riquezas. Pero así todo, lo que más importa es
el uso que hacemos de nuestros dones.
Las Escrituras de hoy señalan el valor de los dones de la sabiduría, la confianza en Dios y una cualidad que permite
que nuestras acciones reflejen el amor de Dios que llevamos en nuestro interior. No es el oro lo que nos hace tropezar,
sino el desear el oro por encima de todo lo demás. En las lecturas de la Sabiduría y Hebreos, descubrimos la fuente de
los dones de Dios en nuestra vida. La sabiduría vale mucho más que las posesiones materiales. En Hebreos, se nos motiva a examinar nuestros valores y a reconocer con honestidad qué es lo que rige nuestra vida.
Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
LECTURAS DE HOY
Primera lectura — El don más preciado que podemos pedir y poseer es la sabiduría (Sabiduría 7:7-11).
Salmo — Sácianos, Señor, de tu misericordia (Salmo 90 [89]).
Segunda lectura — La palabra viva de Dios penetra hasta las profundidades más recónditas de nuestro ser
(Hebreos 4:12-13).
Evangelio — Aquellos que han dejado sus posesiones a causa de Cristo y su Evangelio recibirán en herencia la vida
eterna (Marcos 10:17-30 [17-27]).

The Year of Mercy ….Pope Francis
declared the Year of Mercy, an Extraordinary Jubilee, which will begin
on the Solemnity of the Immaculate
Conception on December 8, 2015 and
conclude on the Solemnity of Our
Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe on November 20, 2016. The last
time the church celebrated a Jubilee
Year was in 2000.
Since the fifteenth century, a holy door has been viewed
as a ritual expression of conversion. The believer associates the door with Christ. In the words of Pope Francis,
“There is only one way that opens wide the en-trance into
the life of communion with God: this is Jesus, the one and
abso-lute way to salvation. To him alone can the words of
the Psalmist be ap-plied in full truth: ‘This is the door of
the Lord where the just may enter’ (Ps 118:20).”
When Pope Francis opens the Holy Door at St. Peter’s
Basilica on December 8, the “Holy Door will become a
Door of Mercy through which anyone who enters will experience the love of God who consoles, pardons, and instills hope” (Misericordiae Vultus 3). Fifty years earlier,
December 8, 1965, the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council concluded. That council strove to bring the church into
the modern world by bringing a breath of fresh air into the
church, to become a “living of the Father’s love in the
world” (MV 4).
“In this Jubilee Year, let us allow God to surprise us. He
never tires of casting open the doors of his heart and of
repeating that he loves us and wants to share his love with
us. The Church feels the urgent need to proclaim God’s
mercy. Her life is authentic and credible only when she
becomes a convincing herald of mercy”
(MV 25).
Here in our archdiocese, the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred
Heart and St. Mary’s Basilica in Galveston will designate
a door as a Holy Door which will be opened on December
13, 2015 and will close on November 13, 2016. For more
information, watch for the Year of Mercy links at
www.archgh.org.

THE REMARKABLE SALESMAN
Christopher Columbus was the world’s most remarkable salesman. He started out not knowing where he was
going. When he arrived, he didn’t know where he was.
And when he returned, he didn’t know where he had
been. And he did it all on a big cash advance and he received a repeat order.
A prayer for persecuted Christians...Heavenly Father, we ask that you would make us ever mindful of
our brothers and sisters around the world who need us
to stand with them as they suffer in your name. Teach
us what it means to overcome by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of our testimony; we pray that we
would not love our lives so much as to shrink from
death. O Lord, hear our prayer.

Twenty Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time
What a great Fall Festival we had last Sunday! Let us praise and thank God for the
beautiful weather and all His blessings. I hope you all had lots of fun and fellowship
with great food, games and entertainments. We grow together in unity and love
through these parish functions and programs. But as you know it takes lot of effort and
hard work. On behalf of our parish family I want to thank all who worked so hard for months
for the success of our Fall Festival especially Ruben Mendez, the chairperson, Domingo Salas
and the amazing team who did a fabulous job. A million thanks to our Raffle committee under the
leadership of Raul Basurto for their three months hard work. Thanks to all the stewards who worked
so hard in the kitchen and in all the booths especially our money counters, dynamic youth, KC’s, Cath
olic Daughters, and all those organizations who shared their time, talents and treasure for this Fall Festival. May the Good Lord bless you all for your amazing stewardship!
As we celebrate World Mission Sunday this weekend I would like to share with you The first few paragraphs
of Pope Francis' Message on World Mission Sunday. "The 2015 W orld Mission Sunday 2015 takes place in
the context of the Year of Consecrated Life, which provides a further stimulus for prayer and reflection. For if
every baptized person is called to bear witness to the Lord Jesus by proclaiming the faith received as a gift,
this is especially so for each consecrated man and woman. There is a clear connection between consecrated
life and mission. The desire to follow Jesus closely, which led to the emergence of consecrated life in the
Church, responds to his call to take up the cross and follow him, to imitate his dedication to the Father and
his service and love, to lose our life so as to gain it. Since Christ’s entire existence had a missionary character, so too, all those who follow him closely must possess this missionary quality.
The missionary dimension, which belongs to the very nature of the Church, is also intrinsic to all forms of
consecrated life, and cannot be neglected without detracting from and disfiguring its charism. Being a missionary is not about proselytizing or mere strategy; mission is part of the “grammar” of faith, something essential for those who listen to the voice of the Spirit who whispers “Come” and “Go forth”. Those who follow
Christ cannot fail to be missionaries, for they know that Jesus “walks with them, speaks to them, breathes with
them. They sense Jesus alive with them in the midst of the missionary enterprise” (Evangelii Gaudium, 266).
“Mission is a passion for Jesus and at the same time a passion for his people. When we pray before Jesus crucified, we see the depth of his love which gives us dignity and sustains us. At the same time, we realize that the
love flowing from Jesus’ pierced heart expands to embrace the People of God and all humanity. We realize
once more that he wants to make use of us to draw closer to his beloved people (cf. ibid., 268) and all those
who seek him with a sincere heart. In Jesus’ command to “go forth”, we see the scenarios and ever-present
new challenges of the Church’s evangelizing mission. All her members are called to proclaim the Gospel by
their witness of life; the witness of life; in a particular way, consecrated men and women are asked to listen to
the voice of the Spirit who calls them to go to the peripheries, to those to whom the Gospel has not yet been
proclaimed."
Have a blessed Mission Sunday!
Fr Sunny

Vigesimo Noveno Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
Queridos Hermanos y Hermanas,
¡Que maravilloso Festival de Otoño el pasado domingo! Demos gracias y alabanzas a Dios
por la maravillosa temperatura y por todas sus bendiciones. Espero que todos hayan tenido
un buen tiempo y camaradería con la sabrosa comida, los varios juegos y entretenimiento. Uni
dos crecemos y amamos a través de estos eventos y funciones. Sin embargo esto es un gran esfuerzo
y trabajo. En nombre de nuestra familia parroquial quiero agradecer a todos los que por meses traba
jaron para hacer de nuestro Festival de Otoño todo un éxito, especialmente a Rubén Méndez, el coordinador, Domingo Salas y al maravilloso equipo que hizo un fabuloso trabajo. Un millón de gracias al comité
de la Rifa, bajo la dirección de Raúl Basurto por su arduo trabajo durante tres meses. Gracias a todos los que
trabajaron en la cocina, y en todos los puestos de venta, los contadores de dinero, los dinámicos jóvenes, los
Caballeros de Colón, las Hijas Católicas y todas las otras organizaciones que compartieron su tiempo, sus
talentos y tesoros necesarios para el éxito del Festival. Que el Buen Señor los bendiga por su gran servicio.
Al celebrar nuestra misión mundial este fin de semana el domingo, quiero compartir con ustedes los primeros
párrafos del Mensaje del Papa Francisco sobre el Mensaje Misionero Dominical. “El Domingo Misionero en
el 2015 se lleva a cabo en el contexto del Año de Vida Consagrada, el cual provee un estímulo mayor para la
oración y la reflexión. Porque todos los bautizados son llamados a ser testigos del Señor Jesús proclamando
que la fe es recibida como regalo esto es especialmente para los hombres y mujeres consagrados. Hay una
clara conexión entre la vida consagrada y la misión. El deseo de seguir muy de cerca a Jesús los lleva a ejercitar la vida consagrada en la Iglesia, así respondiendo al llamado de llevar su cruz y seguirlo, e imitar su
dedicación al Padre y el servicio al amor, y entregar nuestra vida y rehacerla. Como la existencia total de
Cristo tuvo un carácter misionera, así también todos los que lo sigan, deberán poseer la calidad de
misionero” La dimensión misionera, la cual pertenece por naturaleza a la Iglesia, también es intrínseca a todas las formas de vida consagrada y no deberá ser abandonada sin distraer su desfiguración de su carisma. El ser misionero, no es acerca de predicar o meramente evangelizar, la misión es parte de la gramática de fe, algo
esencial para aquellos que escuchan la voz de Espíritu quien susurra “Ven y Sigue Adelante”. Aquellos que
siguen a Cristo no podrán fallar al ser misioneros, porque ellos sabrán que Jesús “camina con ellos, habla
con ellos, respira con ellos. Ellos sienten a Jesús vivo junto a ellos en las tinieblas de iniciativa misionera.” (Evangelii Gaudium, 266).
Misión es una pasión por Jesús y al mismo tiempo para Su gente. Cuando oramos frente a Jesús crucificado,
podemos ver lo profundo de Su amor lo cual nos dignifica y nos da sustento. Al mismo tiempo, nos damos
cuenta que el amor fluye desde el perforado corazón de Jesús el cual se expande para abrazar a la Gente de
Dios y toda la humanidad. Una vez más nos damos cuenta que Él desea utilizarnos para reunir a su amado
pueblo (cf. ibid., 268) y todos aquellos que lo buscan con un corazón sincero al mando de Jesús de “seguir
adelante” veremos el escenario y los reos de los testigos de la misión de Evangelización de la Iglesia. Todos
los miembros somos llamados a proclamar el Evangelio siendo testigos de vida en sus vidas particulares los
hombres y mujeres consagradas se les pide que escuchen la voz del Espíritu quien los llama al as periferias
de aquellos a los que el Evangelio aún no ha sido proclamado”
Que tengan un bendecido Domingo de Misiones.

our brothers and sisters around the world who need us
to stand with them as they suffer in your name. Teach
us what it means to overcome by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of our testimony; we pray that we
would not love our lives so much as to shrink from
death. O Lord, hear our prayer.

Sunday, October 25, 2015 Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
TRUE BLINDNESS
Bartimaeus caused a stir. Normally he sat by the side of the road being a “good blind beggar.” But one day Jesus
passed nearby. Bartimaeus jumped up and called out to Jesus. We can imagine him turning toward the direction of the
commotion and noise. Bartimaeus probably had his arms outstretched as he shouted out to the son of David.
The people who knew him were embarrassed by his outburst. They tried to hush him up and get him to sit back
down by the roadside. Their actions spoke volumes: “Bartimaeus, you’re not fit for Jesus.” But it was okay for them and
other “sighted” people to follow Jesus. In today’s readings, we learn that true blindness is not a condition of our eyes but
of our hearts.

TODAY’S READINGS
First Reading — I will lead the people to brooks of water, on a level road, so that none shall stumble (Jeremiah 31:7-9).
Psalm — The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy (Psalm 126).
Second Reading — It was not Christ who glorified himself, but rather the one who said to him: You are my son: this
day I have begotten you (Hebrews 5:1-6).
Gospel — Immediately the blind man received his sight and followed Jesus on the way (Mark 10:46-52).

VERDADERA CEGUERA
Bartimeo causó tremenda conmoción. Por lo regular él estaba sentado al borde del camino siendo un “buen mendigo ciego”. Pero un buen día pasó Jesús cerca de ahí. Bartimeo se puso de pie en un salto y le gritó a Jesús. Nos podemos imaginar como se daba vuelta en dirección al ruido y la conmoción. Probablemente tenía los brazos extendidos al
gritarle al hijo de David.
Los que lo conocían se sentían azorados de sus gritos. Trataron de hacerle callar y que se volviera a sentar al borde
del camino. Sus acciones decían mucho: “Bartimeo, tú no eres digno de Jesús”. Pero sí estaba bien que ellos y otras
personas “con vista” siguieran a Jesús. En las lecturas de hoy, aprendemos que la verdadera ceguera no es una condición de los ojos sino del corazón.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
In the tangled but fascinating history of penance in
the Church, the Irish “tariff” system helped us survive the
collapse of the old system of public canonical penance
and prepared the way for a new system that emerged in
the twelfth century. The old form was unrepeatable, public, dealt with serious community matters, and regulated
by the bishops as chief reconcilers. The new form had a
more intimate setting of penitent and confessor, was extremely repeatable, and applied to everyone. The old canonical form was closed to children, who were hardly
capable of the very grown up sins listed, or their demanding remedies. The old form was likewise closed to
clerics, who were protected in a sense by the very nature
of the discipline.
In the new Irish form the penitent directly named
sins, or answered direct questions by the priest. Sometimes, the penitent would recite a long formula accusing
him- or herself in a general way of all sorts of sins, even
from the distant past. Next, priest and penitent together
would lie prostrate before the altar and recite several of
the psalms with penitential themes. Finally, the priest
would pronounce a judgment, deciding what form and
duration the penance should take, normally insisting that
the person return for reconciliation once the penances
were completed.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
En varias ocasiones, Jesús le declara al recién sanado: “tu fe te ha salvado” (Marcos 10:52). Todos los cristianos deseamos ser salvados. Y, ¿qué es la salvación?
La palabra “salvación” viene del latín salus que también
significa “salud”. La salvación es el bienestar en todas
sus formas. Es el estar bien con Dios, con las demás personas, con la creación y consigo mismo. Los hebreos le
llaman shalom y los árabes llaman salam que quiere decir: “paz y bien”. Por siglos y hasta el presente, el saludo de los pueblos semitas es: “La paz sea contigo”. Se
responde “Y también contigo”.
Según Jesús este shalom, salam, salus, salvación, paz
y bien se consigue por medio de la fe. Hay que tener un
deseo profundo de tenerlo, para así pedirlo: “Jesús, Hijo
de David, ten piedad de mí” (Marcos 10:47). La salvación no llega a quienes la esperan sentados en una iglesia, más bien, llega a los que se mueven y obran por ella.

“It is not 'progressive' to try to resolve problems by
eliminating a human life.”

"We do not come to church to attend the service as a
spectator, but in order, along with the priest, to serve
God. Everything we do—our entering, being present, our
kneeling and sitting and standing, our reception of the
sacred nourishment—should be divine service. This is so
only when all we do overflows from the awareness of a
collected heart and the mind’s attentiveness."

A prayer for persecuted Christians...Heavenly
Father, we ask that you would make us ever mindful of
our brothers and sisters around the world who need us
to stand with them as they suffer in your name. Teach
us what it means to overcome by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of our testimony; we pray that we
would not love our lives so much as to shrink from
death. O Lord, hear our prayer.
