Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As many of you know the Church
Air Conditioning has not been
functioning well over the past few
years. This has been especially
evident during the summer
months. Finally, this month we
will be upgrading the Air
Conditioning System in the Church. The wor k will
entail installing a new Air Handler and two new 5 ton
Condensers. This will enable the Air Conditioning
System to function at maximum capacity. The work was
put out for bid and the cost of this upgrade will be
$15, 650.00. I know many of us will be pleased with
this improvement. If you would like to donate to this
project, it would be most appreciated. Please contact the Church Office for more details.

FIFTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

PARISH FAITH
LA FE DE LA PARROQUIA
GO AND DO LIKEWISE
ANDA Y HAZ TÚ LO MISMO
Miss Collins, the dean of students at Olympic High
School, was past the point of scolding Matt, though she liked
him very much. “Four detentions in two weeks are too
many.”
Still Matt wouldn’t tell. It was only after Miss Collins
went on a morning neighborhood patrol that she found out the
real reason for Matt’s tardiness. Thump, thump, thump, came
the wheelchair down the stairs. It was Matt, steadying
Shawnetta as he helped lower her down the stairs and then
push her to the corner bus stop.
“She’s a girl in my parish youth group,” Matt explained
to Miss Collins.
There are many ways to describe Matt’s actions—a
random act of kindness, making a difference one person at a
time. Jesus would understand. When the lawyer correctly
identified the good Samaritan as the one who had treated the
injured man with compassion, Jesus said simply, “Go and do
likewise” (Luke 10:37).
La señorita González, la decana de los estudiantes de la
Escuela Secundaria Olimpo, ya estaba cansada de regañar a
Mateo, a pesar de que le caía muy bien. “Cuatro castigos
después de clase en dos semanas es demasiado".
Sin embargo Mateo permanecía en silencio. Sólo después
de que la señorita González fuera en una ronda matutina por
el vecindario descubrió la verdadera razón de las tardanzas de
Mateo. Pataplún, cayó la silla de ruedas por las escaleras. Era
Mateo, sujetando a Dolores mientras ayudaba a que la bajaran
por las escaleras y luego la empujaba hasta la parada de autobús.
“Es una chica de mi grupo de jóvenes de la parroquia”
Mateo le explicó a la señorita González.
Hay muchas formas de describir las acciones de Mateo –
un acto de bondad al azar, marcar una diferencia en la vida de
una persona a la vez. Jesús entendería. Cuando el abogado
identificó correctamente al buen samaritano como el que
había tratado al hombre herido con compasión, Jesús simplemente dijo: “Anda y haz tú lo mismo” (Lucas 10:37).
TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
The first “presbyters” were advisers to the bishops
rather than what we would call “priests,” yet by the year 1000
our present-day understanding of the ordained priesthood is
clearly in place. The Germanic influence was
strong in those days, reflected in a series of
questions posed to the candidate about his
intentions.
The priest’s role in the celebration of Mass
had by then come to the fore, as the ritual notes
that Mass vestments must be worn, the hands of
the priest must be anointed with chrism, and a
chalice with wine and water and a paten with a
host must be given. Up to then, the ordination
rite had stressed the presbyter as a collaborator
with the bishop and a member of the order of
presbyters. Then, in a not-so-subtle shift, the
presbyter came to be seen as a “priest” designated to celebrate the Mass and, as the prayer
suggests, to touch the chalice. By these days,
remember, the cup had long vanished from
Communion for the laity. A thousand years ago,
today’s patterns were already in place. The
priest no longer saw himself as a member of a
council of elders, a presbytery, and in some
dioceses he had little influence over the bishop. Instead, he
was either a pastor, with relationship to the eucharistic community in the parish, or he was a priest monk, offering Mass
for the salvation of the departed or the intentions of the living.
BIRTHDAYS THIS WEEK
TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
Desde 1913, en la ciudad de Puntarenas, Costa Rica, la Virgen del Carmen es reconocida como la Virgen del Mar. En
aquel año un barco llamado el Galileo naufraga en una tempestad y el pueblo angustiado por sus seres
queridos recurrió al templo de la Virgen
para pedir auxilio. Algunos días después
todos los tripulantes fueron rescatados y
llevados a Puntarenas.
Según los tripulantes, mientras las lluvias
y vientos amenazaban al Galileo una mujer
los animó a que se echasen al agua y nadaran a tierra firme. Allí ella los alimentó
y los acompañó hasta que fueron rescatados.
Llenos de alegría, el pueblo llevó
a los rescatados a la iglesia para dar gracias. Estos reconocieron a la Virgen del
Carmen como la mujer que los había
ayudado. Desde entonces el sábado más
cercano al 16 de julio, el pueblo celebra en
grande la fiesta del Carmen con grandes
desfiles de barcos y yates.
Entre música y fuegos artificiales los costarricenses vienen en
embarcaciones adornadas desde toda la nación a celebrar con
la Virgen del Mar que también se encuentra en una embarcación.

DECIMOQUINTO DOMINGO DEL TIEMPO ORDINARIO
PÁGINA 5
THE MESSAGE ON THE FIFTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
The Old Testament reading from Deuteronomy
praises God for inscribing the commandments
in our very bodies.
God’s law is not distant
or foreign, but a natural
part of us. In his letter to
the Colossians, Saint Paul echoes Moses, praising God for
becoming one of us. The truly human, flesh-and-blood
Jesus reminds us that God always wants to be recognizable
and familiar to us. Jesus, who is also truly God, wants to
be on intimate terms with each of us.
God’s passionate desire to be known by us is almost
too wonderful to take in. Luke’s Gospel helps us
understand how to respond. The good Samaritan parable
provides practical advice for those who believe in God’s
intimate love for them and want to share that love with
others.
NO ASSEMBLY REQUIRED!
Lots of people joke about do-it-yourself furniture
stores whose products come in skinny boxes full of pre-cut
lumber and tiny bags of hardware. The instructions inside
often include confusing sketches and bewildering descriptions of how to accomplish each step. Many of us know the
frustration of reaching a critical stage in the assembly, only
to discover that the hardware bag lacks the necessary
screws.
Today’s readings boldly proclaim that God can never
be a source of frustration like this. The heart God gives to
each one of us comes fully equipped to know, love, and
serve God to the best of our ability. God’s law is perfect,
and God created us to know and follow the law. We come
fully assembled—no missing pieces, no spare parts!
La lectura del Antiguo Testamento del libro del
Deuteronomio alaba a Dios por escribir los mandamientos
en nuestros cuerpos. La ley de Dios no es extraña o distante, sino una parte natural de nosotros. En su carta a los
colosenses, san Pablo hace eco de Moisés, alabando a Dios
por ser uno de nosotros. Él, verdaderamente humano, de
carne y hueso, Jesús nos recuerda que Dios siempre quiere
ser para nosotros alguien familiar al quien podemos
reconocer, el que es verdadero Dios, quiere estar en buenos
términos con cada uno de nosotros.
El deseo apasionado de Dios para ser conocido por
nosotros es tan maravilloso para disfrutarse. El Evangelio
de Lucas nos ayuda a entender cómo responder. La parábola del Buen Samaritano nos provee de consejos prácticos
para quienes creen en la intimidad del amor de Dios para
ellos y quiere compartir ese amor con otros.
NO ES NECESARIO ENSAMBLAR LAS PARTES
Muchas personas hacen chistes acerca de las tiendas
que venden muebles empacados en pequeñas cajas que
incluyen una herramienta y algunos tornillos. Las instrucciones incluidas a menudo se confunden con los dibujos y
las descripciones que indican como realizar los pasos necesarios para terminar el proyecto. Muchos de nosotros conocemos la frustración que al hacer lo que dicen las instrucciones el resultado no es el que se indica y luego darnos
cuenta que además faltan algunas piezas.
Las lecturas de hoy audazmente proclaman que Dios
nunca puede ser un motivo de frustración como este. El
corazón que Dios da a cada uno de nosotros viene totalmente equipado para conocer, amar y servir a Dios lo
mejor que podamos. La ley de Dios es perfecta y Dios nos
creó para conocer y seguir la ley. ¡Venimos totalmente
equipados con todas las piezas y ninguna hace falta!
