From the Pastor’s Heart and Desk:
~~~~ Transfigurations are big business because we are very aware of
the face we present to the world.
And we will alter our face to our
advantage if we can. Sometimes
the change is not just in looks but in our
whole image - including our name. Larushka Shikne did not like the image he
thought his name projected, so he
changed his name to Laurence Harvey.
Issur Danielovitch Densky did the same
thing and became Kirk Douglas. In the
same way, Frances Gum transfigured herself and her image into Judy Garland.
Archibald Leach became Cary Grant.
Asron Schwalt became Red Buttons. And
would you have paid money to see Marion Morrison in the movies? Maybe, but
Marion didn’t take that chance, he became John Wayne. Remember that in Holy Scriptures many people got new
names to go with a new life and a new
image. Abram became Abraham. Sarai became Sarah. Jacob became Israel. Saul became Paul. Simon became Peter, “the
Rock.” Transfigurations are not the exception. They are the rule. We are all being altered in the appearance of our face,
our countenance. We are all changing. To
live is to be continually transfigured. So
who are we becoming?
~~~~ David A. Redding tells in one of his
books about Orville Kelly - a man who
was informed years ago that he was suffering from terminal cancer. He and his
wife went home to cry and to die. Should
they keep it a secret? They wondered
and they prayed. The answer, they decided, was that they should not only pray
but also play. They decided to put on a
big party. They invited all their friends.
During the festivities, Orville held up his
hand to make an announcement: “You
may have wondered why I called you all
together,” he said. “This is a cancer party. I have been told that I have terminal...

Del Escritorio y Corazón del Pastor:
~~~~ Las transfiguraciones son un
negocio grande porque estamos
concientes de la cara que presentamos al mundo y alteramos nuestras caras hacia nuestra ventaja si podemos. A veces el cambio no es solamente de como lucimos sino en nuestra
imagen total incluyendo nuestro nombre.
A Larushka Shikne no le gustaba la
imagen que ella pensaba que su nombre
proyectaba, entonces se cambió el nombre a Laurence Harvey. Issur Danielovitch Densky hizo lo mismo y se cambió
a Kirk Douglas. Del mismo modo,
Frances Gum transfiguró su imagen en
Judy Garland. Archibald Leach se cambió a Cary Grant. Aaron Schwart, se volvió Red Buttons. Y usted tendría que pagar dinero para ver a Marion Morrison
en el cine?. Tal vez, pero Marion no tomó
ese chance, se hizo John Wayne.
Recuerden que en las Escrituras Sagradas mucha gente alteró su nombre para
seguir con una nueva vida y una nueva
imagen. Abram se volvió Abraham.
Sarai, se volvió Sarah. Jacob se volvió
Israel. Saul se volvió Paul. Simón se volvió Peter "la roca" . Las transfiguraciones no son la excepción, son la regla.
Todos somos alterados en la apariencia
de nuestros rostros, nuestros aspetos, todos estamos cambiando. Vivir es estar
continuamente transfigurados. Entonces,
en quién nos convertimos ? .
~~~~ David A. Redding nos dice en uno
de sus libros acerca de Orville Kelly, un
hombre quien fue informado hace algunos años que estaba sufriendo de un
cancer terminal. El y su esposa fueron a
su casa a llorar y a morir. Debian ...

Continued from page 2 … cancer. Then
my wife and I realized we are all terminal. We decided to start a new organization. It is called M.T.C. - ‘Make Today
Count.’ You are all charter members.”
Since that time that organization has
spread across the country. Orville’s
recognition of his mortality was a new
beginning. Such an attitude is not as rare
as you might think. Former Harvard sociologist Pitirim Sorokin noted years ago
that some people meet tragedy and fall
apart at the seams. Others meet the same
adversities and see their troubles as a
challenge to their faith and courage. They
make their troubles work for them, and
the harder they fall, the higher they

thanks to everyone who
helped him celebrate the
50th Anniversary of his Ordination
at Mass on Sunday, February 26th.
Thank you to Fr. Kubala for his
invitation to have the Mass here at
St. Matthew and to Archbishop
Wenski for attending and giving
the Homily. Thank you to Eva
Hart, Joan Ochoa and their
wonderful volunteers for the
beautiful luncheon provided after
the 10:00 Mass. It was a lot of work
and was appreciated by Fr. Quinn
very much. God bless all of you.

un secreto? Se epreguntaron y oraron. La
respuesta, ellos decidieron, que no solo
debían orar sino gozar. Decidieron hacer
una gran fiesta. Invitaron a todos sus
amigos. durante la fiesta, Orville levantó
la mano para hacer un anuncio : "Ustedes
se preguntaran por qué los llamé a todos
juntos? les dijo. "Esta es una fiesta del
cáncer. Me han dicho que tengo cáncer
terminal. Entonves mi esposa y yo nos dimos cuenta que todos somos terminales.
Decidimos empezar una nueva organización. Se llama M.T.C. ( make today
count), Haga que hoy dia cuente. Todos
ustedes son miembros titulares". Desde
ese tiempo esa organización se ha difundido en todo el país. El reconocimiento de
la inmortalidad de Orville fue un nuevo
comienzo. Tal actitud no es tan rara como Ud. cree. Un Sociólogo de Harvard Pitirim Sorokin notó hace unos años que algunas personas encuentran una tragedia
y se desmoronan. Otros encuentran las
mismas adversidades y ven sus problemas como un reto a su fé y coraje.
Hacen que sus problemas trabajen para
ellos, y por más duro que caigan, más alto se levantan.
