OCTOBER IS RESPECT LIFE MONTH
LOVE ~ RESPECT ~ PROMOTE
October is annually observed as Respect Life Month in churches across our nation.
This provides a wonderful opportunity for catechists to teach children and youth the
truth about the dignity of the human person. Human life is under constant attack in
our culture today; from the moment of conception to natural death. Life is threatened
because we no longer understand what it means to be human, and what our humanity
calls forth from us in our responsibility to care for other persons.
Respect is the acknowledgement that all human persons are made in the image of
God. It is important that children learn at an early age to recognize that they are a
human person because they possess a God-given dignity. This can be done by emphasizing their Heavenly Father’s love for them. “See what love the Father has given us,
that we should be called children of God; and so we are… Beloved, we are God’s children now.” (1 John 3:16)
Respect obligates us to revere and honor not only others, but ourselves as well. Young
children can learn to respect themselves by how they treat their bodies, what they
watch on television, what games they play on their iPads, what time they take to pray
and thank God for His gifts to them, how they respect their parents.
Older children and adults can be taught ways in which our dignity as human persons
calls us to love others. Love is not an emotion, but a call to action. Our attitude should
be to care for another as a person for whom God has made us responsible. They can
be shown ways to care for the elderly, take part in prayer for an end to abortion, lend
help to a neighbor in need or help at a food pantry in the community. These are just a
few examples of caring for our neighbor.
MINISTRIES, EVENTS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
MINISTERIO EN ESPAÑOL
Vigésimo Séptimo
Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
CAMINO A RELACIONES SALUDABLES
Desde comienzos de la creación, Dios tenía planeado
que los seres humanos vivieran unidos llevándose
bien unos con otros. Gran parte de la Sagrada Escritura nos muestra cómo hacerlo, a la vez que explica
y clarifica el plan de Dios. Las lecturas este fin de
semana ofrecen una guía para valorar y cuidar de
nuestras relaciones humanas. Específicamente, el
Evangelio se enfoca en las circunstancias de una
relación que ha fallado. A diferencia de los fariseos,
nos conviene no tanto enfatizar las leyes que se aplican a relaciones que fallan, sino más bien, dar prioridad a lo que en realidad Dios deseaba para nosotros.
Los vínculos saludables requieren de nosotros mucho tiempo y dedicación. Ciertamente exigen confianza y honestidad. Jesús demostró un profundo
compromiso con sus amigos y para con nosotros.
Como un hermano, entregó hasta su vida por nosotros. Los niños se ocupan mucho de sus amistades.
Ellos confían, perdonan, aman sin condiciones. Las
palabras finales del Evangelio de hoy nos invitan a
recibir a Jesús y a aquellos con quienes nos relacionamos, con el entusiasmo y la frescura de un niño.

STEWARDSHIP REFLECTIONS
“So out of the ground the Lord God
formed every beast of the field and
every bird of the air, and brought
them to the man to see what he
would call them; and whatever the
man called every living creature,
that was its name.”
(Genesis 2:19)
The creation story reminds us of
two important points. First, since
the start, God has put the entire
world into our care. Second, stewardship has been around since the
beginning of humanity; it isn’t
something recently invented by the
Church. Just as past generations
built our Church, it is now our
responsibility to continue to nurture and develop these gifts for future generations.
