Ricky V. Ordóñez VVVVVVVV The first week of school has come and gone! Verdict? Very successful! The children are happy and so are the teachers. While we had a fair bit of rain, it was good to be in air-conditioned comfort! VVVVVVVV Looking at our children come in to school every morning, I often wonder what their futures hold. Whatever these may be, I know that the foundation that they get from a St. Joseph Catholic School education will help them achieve it. Therefore, the challenge falls, not only on the teachers and parents, but for the rest of the parish who CAN have a great hand at supporting it. VVVVVVVV Someone asked me, “What can we do to help the school, Fr. Ricky?” There are so many things that we need to do for our children. One way is to upgrade our facilities. The air conditioning was only the beginning. Oftentimes, I walk around the school when it is empty and start imagining what it would be like to have the following: A track oval around the soccer field An improved “ramada” A covered basketball court Updated TV sets in each classroom VVVVVVVV We have a terrific Principal in the person of Mr. Sam Granillo. He brings with him the energy and skill to keep our children raring to learn. It is his third year in our school and he has proven that he has the talents and knowledge in providing leadership to bring it to greater heights. Well done, Mr. Granillo! VVVVVVVV With John Hill joining Tom Taylor and Nora Arriola in our maintenance crew, we are confidently catching up in keeping our gardens tidy. The summer was just so busy trying to get our school ready for the opening that, we must admit, our gardens needed some “serious tender loving care”. Thanks to them, it is now coming back to life. VVVVVVVV Let us pray for Bishop Kicanas! On his birthday last Thursday, Aug. 18, 2016, Bishop Kicanas submitted his letter of retirement to the Holy Father in Rome. This is mandatory for all Bishops reaching the age of 75. While his retirement is not immediate, it means that the Pope will now have to find his successor which, traditionally, takes some time. I am sure that it is “bitter – sweet” for the Bishop as he must look forward to retirement but, I am sure, he will miss all the “action” in the Diocese of Tucson. VVVVVVVV Our 5:30 PM Sunday mass has seen its number grow! We would like to call on those who may want to join our ‘a capella’ choir! Better still, if you can be the pianist, ALLELUIA! Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you would like to offer your musical skills. VVVVVVVV Let us continue to pray for our brothers and sisters who are currently facing some health challenges. There are a few of them in home care facilities and hospices. Some are still in the hospital. Let us ask the Lord to touch them with His healing hand and restore them to full health! VVVVVVVV “Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5, 6 3 DISCIPLINE It is no accident that the words “disciple” and “discipline” are nearly identical. Their relationship in Christian faith and life, however, has fallen somewhat out of favor in the past generation, as certain prescribed Church rules and regulations have been reduced and relaxed. These rules were often referred to as “disciplines.” We are mistaken, however, to think that it no longer takes discipline to follow Christ. The Letter to the Hebrews assures us of that today. Our discipline is more like that of an athlete pursuing a victory or a personal best, or a musician striving for a concert career or to master a new piece of music. This discipline comes from desire, not from regulations. It was the desire to do the will of God that led Jesus on the path to his cross. It is that same desire he encourages in us today: to strive to enter through the narrow gate, to find ourselves in the kingdom with a surprising assortment of people who are there not because of mere observation of rules, but out of a genuine desire to recline at the table of the heavenly banquet.

Su relación en la fe y la vida cristianas, sin embargo, ha caído en desuso en la generación pasada debido a que ciertas reglas y regulaciones prescritas en la fe cristiana se han reducido o relajado. Estas reglas con frecuencia eran llamadas “disciplinas”. Nos equivocamos, sin embargo, si pensamos que ya no se necesita disciplina para seguir a Cristo. La Carta a los Hebreos nos lo asegura hoy. Nuestra disciplina es como la de un atleta que persigue una victoria o quiere ser el mejor, o como la de un músico que lucha por hacer carrera como concertista o por perfección en la ejecución de una nueva obra musical. Esta disciplina se basa en el deseo, no en las reglas. Fue el deseo de hacer la voluntad de Dios lo que motivó a Jesús en el camino hacia el calvario. Es ese mismo deseo el que él inspira en nosotros hoy: luchar por entrar por la puerta angosta, para encontrarnos en el Reino con muchas personas que están allí no solamente por observar las reglas, sino por un sincero deseo de reclinarse a la mesa del celestial banquete. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co. 4 Each year, our councils undertake many thousands of locally inspired programs at the parish level, making life better for millions of people. And all of this is the legacy of our founder, Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney, whose spiritual genius inspired generations of Catholic men to step forward with courage to confront the challenges of their day by living out the principles of charity, unity and fraternity in a distinctly Catholic way. Council 8813 is planning to have dinners on the first Friday of each month and it was decided to try out something a bit different. Along with our usual fish dinners, there will be a different entrée each month. Part of the reason is to try to entice Fr. Ricky and Deacon Leon into trying something different, since word from the pond is the catfish were showing signs of being concerned. If you are a Catholic man interested in becoming a Knight, please contact our council at 520-303-4791 or by email at Kofc8813@yahoo.com RCIA INQUIRY CLASSES BEGINNING Are you interested in joining in full union with the Catholic Church or know someone who is?
