We need your help!
I am asking for your help on behalf of St. Gabriel Church, I
wish to respectfully request your help in asking your Family
Doctor, Eye Doctor, Podiatris, your Auto Mechanic, your favorite Super Market, Nail Salon, Hair Dresser, or any other business
you deal with, in purchasing an Ad to be placed in the back of
our Weekly Church Bulletin.
If we CAN’T provide additional ads, we will not be able to
have the type of bulleting that we need. So I’m reaching out to
you and the Community. What an inexpensive way to promote
their business and help the church. For $468.00, their ad will run
each week for an entire year.
This is a good way to strengthen community ties and promote local business in our neighborhood. These ads pay for the Bulletins, which are printed and delivered to the Church FREE OF
J.S. Paluch, can not longer provide free bulletins without
ads. We hope you can help us to keep distributing our bulletin,
provide your friends and neighbors with inexpensive advertising,
keep our local business thriving and receive some extra blessings.
Please take note of hoy few businesses we have on the back
of our Bulletin. All others are from the J.S. Paluch Bulletin Co.
So that the back wouldnt be blank, so far only CONWAY Funeral Home, have responded to my plea.
I want to say THANK YOU, your help is very much appreciated.
To purchase an ad, please contact Eileen Walsh: 917-9220963.

Mark 4:35-41
Calming the storms
It's hurricane season where I live in Florida. Some people believe
that destructive storms are punishments from God. While it is true
that people deserve to be punished for their immorality, Jesus took
the Father's righteous wrath upon his own body, accepting torture,
shedding blood, and dying, so that all sinners could be saved from
the justice we deserve.
Jesus wants to calm our storms, not cause them.
Hardships are not punishments. They are the best occasions for
growing closer to God. All of us have seasons of storms in our lives.
Each of them are invitations to realize that Jesus is walking with us
through it all, whether we deserve his help or not. They're opportunities to learn more knowledge, gain more wisdom, and grow stronger
in true faith. It's a time of becoming more humble. Because of our
increased need to rely on God, we discover more about his love, but
only if we stop insisting that God should behave like a magic genie
that we control to resolve our problems the way we think it should
Some of the storms in this world continue raging because we don't
do enough to bring the presence of Christ into them. After we've
gained from our experiences, we're supposed to help others endure
the storms of their lives. We have the earthly hands that Jesus wants
to use to calm their storms. And then, surprise! It is in this outreach
that we realize that our sufferings have not been in vane; this calms
our stormy clouds of despair and regret.
Often, we create our own storms by making sinful decisions, but
God doesn't want us to get punished. He sends plenty of red-flag
warnings and then, if we get into a hurricane anyway, Jesus invites
us to calm the turmoil by reconciling with him.
Whether the storms brew by sin or by nature, if we cry out like the
disciples in this Sunday's Gospel reading -- "Lord, don't you care that
we're perishing?" -- Jesus replies, "Why are you scared? How little
faith you have! My peace is already here."

Calmando las tormentas
Es época de huracanes donde vivo en Florida. Algunas personas creen
que las tormentas destructivas son castigos de Dios. A pesar de que es
cierto que las personas merecen ser castigadas por su inmoralidad,
Jesús cargó la ira justa del Padre sobre su propio cuerpo, aceptando la
tortura, derramando sangre y muriendo para que todos los pecadores
pudieran salvarse de la justicia que merecían.
Jesús quiere calmar nuestras tormentas, no causarlas.
Los sufrimientos de la vida no son castigos. Son las mejores ocasiones
para acercarnos más a Dios. Todos tenemos épocas de tormentas en
nuestras vidas. Ellas son invitaciones a darnos cuenta que Jesús está
caminando junto a nosotros a través de todo, merezcamos su ayuda o
no. Son oportunidades para adquirir más conocimiento, ganar más
sabiduría y crecer más fuertemente en la verdadera fe. Es un tiempo
para crecer en humildad. Gracias a nuestra mayor necesidad de confiar
en Dios, descubrimos más acerca de su amor, pero sólo si dejamos de
insistir en que Dios debería comportarse como un genio mágico que
controlamos nosotros para resolver nuestros problemas de la forma en
que creemos conveniente.
Algunas de las tormentas en este mundo siguen bramando porque no
hacemos lo suficiente para traer hasta ellas la presencia de Cristo.
Después de haber crecido a partir de nuestras experiencias, supuestamente deberíamos ayudar a otros a soportar las tormentas en sus
vidas. Tenemos las manos terrenales que Jesús quiere usar para calmar
las tormentas. Y entonces, ¡sorpresa! Es en este logro que nos damos
cuenta que nuestros sufrimientos no han sido en vano; esto calma
nuestras nubes de desesperación y lamento.
A menudo creamos nuestras propias tormentas tomando decisiones
pecaminosas, pero Dios no quiere que seamos castigados. Nos manda
muchas banderas rojas advirtiéndonos y entonces, si de todas formas
