As I write this I am looking outside at the green grass and tress and beautiful flowers as well as the bright sunshine. I enjoy this time of the year to slow down just a little although as usual we have several projects that we are trying to finish up. The Knights of Columbus are still working on the renovation of the Convent. We are in touch with two communities of sisters and they are planning to come up for a visit sometime this summer. We are trying to finish up the convent by the beginning of August. So far most of the work has been donated labor. We are trying to get the floor finished up and the interior painting. The exterior painting is done and the building looks new like it did in 1950 when the Dominican Sisters moved in. One of the other projects is the new chapel. Magnum Construction has been working on it and has told us that they hope to be done by September. That would be fantastic if they could finish it by then. We are also doing some re-construction in the gym area trying to give more room for spectators during the games. The tables and chairs and other materials that were in the gym area are being stored in the school shed. The Hispanic council of the Knights of Columbus are also renovating Frank’s old shop and are using that shed to keep their things. There are more painting jobs that are being done around the campus and of course we are busy cleaning up the classrooms, etc. in preparation for another school year. In the Church I am looking at adding some metal work to liven up the altar rail and perhaps we will June 14, 2015 also do something with the Stations of the Cross to make them show up a little better. In the small chapel we also have some ideas of how to renovate that space to make it more attractive. By October of this year it would be great if we were finished with all these things that I have listed. I would like to thank all of you who have increased your weekly donation to the Church. I had asked everyone to try to double what they were giving before and many of you have done so. It has made a huge difference in the total amount each Sunday. Please continue to give generously to the support of our parish family. Make it a sacrificial gift like the poor widow did whom Jesus praised. He saw that although she gave only a few cents she gave more than everyone else because she gave form her needs, not just form her surplus. I am happy that Father Juan Pablo and myself were not transferred this year. We are enjoying serving as your priests. Bishop Slattery will be turning in his retirement letter this August as he will be 75 years of age. He doesn’t know at this point whether he will be requested to work for another year or so or whether the Pope will accept his retirement immediately. At any rate, things are a little bit up in the air at this point as Bishop doesn’t want to make too many changes since he is so close to finishing up his time with us as our Bishop. I hope that summer will be a rejuvenating time for each of you and that you will have the opportunity to enjoy some of the beauty of God’s creation. Take care and God bless you always. Sincerely, Father Tim Davison The most important person to be honest with is myself. Anonymous Where the Church is, there is the Spirit of God: and where the Spirit of God is, there is the Church and all grace, and the Spirit is truth. St. Irenaeus Cross Catholic Outreach Father Peter V. Zafe, S.T.D. of Cross Catholic Outreach will be visiting our parish next weekend to speak at all the Masses on behalf of the poor in developing countries. Cross Catholic Outreach was founded to create a meaningful link between parishes in America and the priests and nuns working in the Church overseas. Go, Share Serve Pope Francis offers three simple ideas for evangelization: “Go, do not be afraid, and serve.” Go If you know the truth about life, love, marriage, and family, share it! To be silent “would be like withholding oxygen from a flame that was burning strongly,” as Pope Francis put it in Rio de Janeiro. “Faith is a flame that grows stronger the more it is shared and passed on, so that everyone may know, love and confess Jesus Christ, the Lord of life and history.” (World Youth Day, 2013) Share We must share! And we needn’t be afraid. Pope Francis said, “Some people might think: ’I have no particular preparation, how can I go and proclaim the Gospel?’” But you don’t need a theology degree to say something true and welcoming about the Church. Likewise, God doesn’t always call the equipped; he equips the called. And God is calling you. Give of yourself. Speak from experience. Walk with someone. Lead them to the wellspring of eternity. That’s not done by coercion but by patient, loving, and compelling conversation, friendship, and true encounter. Serve Last, during that homily about our missionary work in the world, Pope Francis called us to serve. Serve the Lord even in your conversations about elections, even in conversations it would be much easier not to have. You might not convince those who think differently that the Church is right, but you may earn their respect and a second look. That’s what Pope Francis has been doing his very life is a model. Copyright Our Sunday Visitor, Inc. TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION A wedding celebrated in the Eastern Church has a form that was fixed a thousand years ago. In the West, our story is more complicated by constant change and variation. As the world’s structures tottered in the ninth century, bishops and priests stepped into the void left by collapsing civil structures. For the first time, marriage was referred to as a sacrament, and wedding ceremonies were to be in public (assuring the free consent of the bride) after an investigation of the couple by a priest. The custom of the blessing of the bridal room diminished, and was finally forbidden in 1012 by the Council of Rouen, although it continued for centuries. In the diocese of Perigueux in France, a ritual from 1827 had the parish priest clad in surplice and stole sprinkling the bridal couple as they stood modestly in their pajamas by the wedding bed. Next the bed and all those present were sprinkled too! That’s a tradition that few Americans, either the betrothed or the clergy, are ready to revive! Rev. James Field, Copyright J. S. Paluch.

All is Grace On Sundays in Ordinary Time, the Old Testament reading is selected for the light it sheds on the day’s Gospel. Today, Ezekiel sees God lifting up the lowly tree and making the withered tree bloom. So in the second parable of today’s Gospel, Jesus encourages us by promising that, as fragile seeds grow into an abundant harvest, and the tiny mustard seed into a hearty plant, so God will grow the kingdom from small beginnings to an instrument of salvation for all. In the first parable, the land yields fruit “of its own accord.” (Mark 4:28). Not only is the initiative God’s, but the parable teaches that the seed’s growth, though invisible at first, is actually unstoppable! To be sure, those who depend on the impressive or dramatic in order to be convinced or encouraged will be disappointed in the slow unfolding of the kingdom that Jesus announces. But for those who do accept the kingdom, all is grace, and that grace is certain. Though the second reading is not coordinated with either the first reading or Gospel on these Sundays, today’s is thematically appropriate. Saint Paul argues that our experience of God’s trustworthiness thus far should make us a people of undaunted courage and unshakeable faith. But at the same time Paul warns that faith should also make us aware of our responsibility to do good. Copyright J. S. Palich Co.

Mientras escribo esta carta estoy mirando afuera donde todo esta verde, veo los árboles y las flores hermosas y el sol esta brillando. Disfruto de esta temporada cuando podemos descansar un poco aunque hay proyectos que estamos tratando de cumplir. Los Caballeros de Colon todavía están trabajando en la renovación del Convento. Estoy en comunicación con dos comunidades de hermanas y están planeando visitarnos este verano. Esperamos terminar con la renovación en agosto. Todo ha sido trabajo donado. Ahora estamos trabajando en el piso y pintando el interior. Ya hemos terminado con pintando el exterior y el edificio se ve como era en 1950 cuando llegaron las Hermanas Dominicanas. Uno de los otros proyectos es la nueva capillita. La compañía Magnum Construction esta trabajando en esto y dicen que esperan tenerla terminada en septiembre. También estamos trabajando en el gimnasio, tratando de hacer más cupo para espectadores. Las mesas y las sillas que estaban guardadas en el gimnasio ahora están guardadas en el cobertizo de la escuela. El grupo hispano de los Caballeros de Colon están renovando el viejo cobertizo de Frank y están usándolo para guardar sus cosas. Tenemos proyectos de pintar en varios lugares y claro estamos ocupados limpiando los salones de clases en preparación por otro año escolar. En la Iglesia estoy pensando en añadiendo arte de metal en las barandillas del altar para hacerlas más bonitas y tal vez vamos a hacer algo con los puestos del Vía Crucis para que se pueden verlos mejor. Estoy pensando tambien en unas renovaciones en la capillita para que se ve mejor. Quisiera tener todos estos proyectos terminados en octubre. Quisiera agradecer a todos ustedes que han aumentado sus donaciones a la Iglesia. Había pedido que doblen sus donaciones y muchos de ustedes lo han hecho. Ha hecho una diferencia enorme en la colecta cada domingo. Favor seguir donando generosamente a su familia parroquial. Deben hacer un regalo sacrificial como hizo la viuda. Jesús vio que ella dio solamente unos centavos pero dio más que los otros porque dio de lo que necesitaba, no de lo que sobro. Me alegra que ni el Padre Juan Pablo ni yo fuimos transferidos este año. Estamos muy contentos sirviendo como sus sacerdotes. El Obispo Slattery va a cumplir los 75 años este agosto y mandara su carta de jubilación al Papa. El todavía no sabe si el Papa aceptara su jubilación o si va a trabajar un año adicional. Por eso el Obispo no quiso hacer cambios grandes como esta acercando el fin de su tiempo como nuestro Obispo. Ojala que este verano sea una temporada de renovación para cada uno de ustedes y que tendrán tiempo de disfrutar de algunas de las bellazas de las creaciones del Señor. Cuídense todos y Dios bendiga a todos ustedes. Sinceramente, Padre Timothy Davison GANADORES DE LA RIFA: Imagen de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe: Lezly Alvarado Ángeles: Pablo Covarrubias !Felicidades!

IMPORTANTE: Decir NO a Charlie, Charlie Recientemente un nuevo juego nombrado Charlie, Charlie ha ganado mucha popularidad en el Internet. Hay variaciones, pero los elementos en común son el uso de lápices y el invocar al espíritu de un (supuestamente) fallecido niño llamado Charlie para que él contesta preguntas. Aunque esto parece una tonta perdida de tiempo, hay peligro grave en este juego. Las Escrituras nos advierten en Deuteronomio 18:10-13 de no invocar a los espíritus ni consultar a los muertos, que este es repugnante en los ojos del Señor. Jugando un juego como Charlie, Charlie es un pecado grave. Los que violan esta advertencia, aunque solamente para divertirse, están invitando a los demonios a interactuar con ellos. Tal vez esto no ocurre inmediatamente ni a todos pero cuando si ocurre es muy grave. Los que han jugado este juego deben confesarse lo más pronto posible.
