Mass Intentions & Memorial Candles
If you would like to have a Mass offered for a particular
Intention or for someone who has died, or if you would like to
dedicate a candle to an intention or a loved one, please call the
parish office. The stipend for the Mass is $10. The candles are
$30 for 1 month, $60 for 6 months, or $90 for one year. Our
office staff will help you find an open date and time for a Mass,
or available candles for dedications.
Who would you like to invite to dine with you? Friends? Celebrities? Family?
I will invite the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. I know you will ask
me, why him. There can be many reasons and they may vary from interest to
need. However, just like any one, I choose somebody who is significant, and
very usually we invite the rich, the famous and the powerful.
“When you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame and the
blind.” (Lk. 14:14) Jesus, in this challenge, teaches us charity without counting the cost and without expecting a reward, especially the latter.
Very often those who are greedy will invite those who can give back a favor,
especially the favor to make them feel important, needed and indispensable. I
know of a politician’s story. He used his power to stay in power. How? When
he became the mayor of the town, he put up a small clinic using government
funds. He provided cheap or low cost medical service for the indigents who
comprise almost all the population of his town. Through his “philanthropic”
work, he convinced his townspeople he was needed, thus he stayed in power.
Every election, he reminded his town about the mayor’s clinic, which bears the huge sign: MADE
THROUGH THE PROJECT OF MAYOR SO AND SO. He served as Mayor for twenty years (with pauses in
between as the election code allows a mayor to serve for three consecutive terms of three years) until he was
killed by “rebels” (actually, the opposition who felt the abuse is already too much).
Often we do not realize we can be like the mayor. We use our God given gifts to be praised. And since
being praised has become very satisfying to us, we abuse the use of those gifts to continue being praised.
Have you heard yourself saying: “Oh, it was me who made that”, “I have been leading that for 20 years
and saw a lot of good results”, “I am the only who made that area very clean and beautiful”, “Without me, that
group is in shambles”, “I know better and I have the keys to the success of your company”, “Who is this young
person that dictates on me”, “What kind of culture he has; our culture is better” and the like. When you hear
yourself say any of this, reflect. Reflect so hard. We need to reflect when we have this hunger for praise. When
we do great things, make sure that we do them for God’s praise not our own. We will know that we become so
engrossed with our own hunger for praise when we make others believe that we are the only righteous individuals to be loved and others to be hated.
Seek only the things that are above (Col 3:1). It is the true reward. Human praise is passing and does
not last. The heavenly praise is everlasting.
¿A Quién le gustaría invitar a cenar con usted? ¿Amigos? ¿Famosos? ¿Familia?
Voy a invitar al Secretario General Ban Ki-moon. Sé que me va a preguntar, Yo se que me preguntaran
porque a él. Puede haber muchas razones y pueden variar el interés y la necesidad. Sin embargo, al igual que
cualquiera, elijo a alguien que es importante, y por lo general Invitamos a los ricos, los famosos y los poderosos.
"Cuando a preparado usted un banquete para, invitar a los pobres, a los lisiados, a los cojos y a los ciegos." en (Lucas. 14:14) Jesús, en este desafío, nos enseña la caridad sin contar el costo y sin esperar recompensa, sobre todo lo último .
(continua en la pagina próxima)
Muy a menudo los que son codiciosos invitan a los que pueden regresarles un favor, en especial el favor de hacer que se sientan importantes, necesarios e indispensable. Conozco la historia de un político. Él utili-
zó su poder para mantenerse en el poder. ¿Cómo? Cuando se convirtió en alcalde de la ciudad, puso una pequeña clínica con fondos del gobierno. Que proporciono servicio médico a bajo costo para los indigentes
que abarcaba casi toda la población de su ciudad. A través de su obra "filantrópica", convenció a la gente del
pueblo que lo necesitaban, por tanto, se quedó en el poder.En cada elección, se le recordaba al pueblo sobre la
clínica del alcalde, que lleva un signo enorme que decía:
ESTO ES REALIZADO A TRAVÉS DEL PROYECTO DEL ALCALDE. Se desempeñó como Alcalde durante veinte años (con pausas en medio como el código electoral permite a un alcalde servir por tres períodos
consecutivos de tres años) hasta que fue acecinado por los "rebeldes" (en realidad, la oposición sintió que ya
era demasiado el abuso ).
A menudo no nos damos cuenta que podemos ser como el alcalde. Nosotros usamos nuestros dones
dados por Dios para ser alabados. Y como somos elogiados eso ha llegado a ser muy satisfactorio para nosotros, abusamos de la utilización de esos regalos para continuar siendo alabados.
¿Te has escuchado a ti mismo diciendo: "Oh, fui yo el que hizo eso", "He sido líder desde hace 20 años
y veo muchos buenos resultados", "yo soy el único que hizo todo ese lugar muy limpio y hermoso", "Sin mí,
ese grupo estaría perdido", "yo sé mejor y tengo las claves para el éxito de la empresa", "¿Quién es este joven
que me quiere dirigirme a mí", "¿Qué tipo de cultura tiene; nuestra cultura es mejor “ y cosa similares a esto.
Cuando te escuches a ti mismo diciendo algo así, Reflexiona. Reflexiona mucho. Tenemos que reflexionar
cuando tenemos este hambre de elogios. Cuando hagamos grandes cosas, asegurémonos de que las hacemos
para la alabanza de Dios, no para la nuestra. Sabremos que estamos tan absortos con nuestra propia hambre de
elogios cuando hacemos que otros creen que somos los únicos individuos rectos para ser amados y otros para
ser odiados.
Como dice en Colosenses 3:1 )Buscar sólo las cosas de arriba. Que es la verdadera recompensa. Los
elogios humanos pasan y no dura. Pero la alabanza celestial es eterna.

Coats for Kids Breakfast
T hi s
With many families continuing to struggle in these challenging economic times, there
has never been a better time for you to support your Knights of Columbus council and
help provide warm winter coats to children. Because of St. Mary’s generosity the last
three years, we’ve been able to raise enough money to purchase 216 coats. The
Knights of Columbus have raised funds to purchase these new Coats. These winter
coats are provided to families who need help, free of charge . The winter months are
coming and we need your help to raise money to purchase the Coats for Kids this
year. August 28th, the Knights will be serving a breakfast after the 8:30 am Mass
and the 11 am Mass in the Gathering Space. Come and enjoy yourselves with friends,
neighbors and family while supporting this very worthy cause.
We work with St Mary’s and community resources to determine where the greatest needs are and hope to distribute them around Thanksgiving.
Point of contact for Albany Council is Jon Keefer at [email protected] or find
me at the 11:00 AM Masses.
