October 26, 2014 - St. Brendan

Saint Brendan Catholic Church
Shallotte, North Carolina
30th Sunday in Ordinary Time
October 26, 2014
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
In the first reading today from Exodus, God speaks of the
alien, the widow, the orphan and our neighbor, saying: “If he
cries out to me, I will hear him; for I am compassionate.”
Each day Catholic Charities staff and volunteers throughout
the Diocese of Raleigh strive to mirror God’s compassion to
our neighbors in need. In the past year this outreach from
the Church assisted more than 68,000 people from 19,000
families. With God’s grace and the help of your prayers and
contributions, the staff of Catholic Charities and over 1,800
volunteers are able to perform the corporal works of mercy in
service to these families. Thank you for your constant and
generous support to our brothers and sisters who are most
The compassionate and holistic response of Catholic
Charities to the alien, the orphans and widows of our time
echoes Pope Francis’s words at the Jesuit refugee center
last September: “Charity that leaves the poor person as he
is, is not sufficient. True mercy, the mercy God gives to us
and teaches us, demands… that the poor find the way to be
poor no longer.” In addition to alleviating some of the
immediate impact of poverty by providing food, children's
clothing, and assistance to purchase prescription medication
and pay utility bills, the professional staff at Catholic
Charities also works to help the poor and vulnerable develop
skills and access resources which will allow them to find a
way to economic self-sufficiency.
I extend my gratitude to those of you who are volunteers and
benefactors supporting the work of the Church through
Catholic Charities. If you are not yet involved with Catholic
Charities or social outreach at your parish, I ask you to
prayerfully consider how you can become involved in
compassionately responding to the needs of our neighbors.
May Our Lord Jesus bless us and all those we love and
serve and may Mary Our Mother watch over us always.
Sincerely in Christ,
Just a reminder… The next
session for the Family-Centered

Christmas Giving this Season: This year
we are wanting to get started early on our
projects for this Christmas. We will again be
doing the gift cards for Building Hope
Ministries. This is the same as last year where we get
a $25.00 gift card at Wal-Mart, Belk or a store of your
choice. These cards are for the teenagers that have a
parent in prison. These teens are sometimes forgotten
at Christmas and your generosity helps them be able to
pick out there own gift. A letter from there parent in
prison is included with the card they get from Building
Hope Ministries. Gift cards can be brought to the
Office, given to Rusty and then Building Hope
Ministries will pick them up. Call Rusty at 754-8544 to
get on the list to donate a gift card. We will be taking on
50 Teens this year.
We will be getting the gift tags from the Senior Center
in Shallotte and NEW THIS YEAR we will feature a
tree for the children in Faith Formation here at St.
Brendan. Their names will be on a Christmas Tree in
the Gathering Space. We hope to be finished with our
projects before Thanksgiving like last year since we
have obligations with family in other places at this time.
gift cards can be started now and more
information on the Senior and Children’s Tree will be in
upcoming bulletins. Thank You for your generosity to

FORMACION DE FE Padre Ricardo, párroco
Hna. M. Teresa coordinadora (910-200-9209)
Amarás a tu prójimo como a
ti mismo.
Hoy también nos preguntamos
por el núcleo, lo más
importante en nuestra relación
con Dios, ¿qué hacer para acertar con una vida
verdaderamente cristiana?, ¿cómo superar la
insatisfacción que produce la mediocridad de vida
cristiana, que dificulta el conocimiento y la
identificación con Jesús? Si en tiempos de Jesús, la
maraña de leyes, normas, preceptos, mandamientos y
obligaciones de la religión judía no dejaban ver, ni
focalizaban lo esencial de la relación con Dios, hoy no
pocos cristianos sufrimos: el peso de nuestra
formación, más bien, deformación; el desconcierto en
la iglesia de jerarcas y de predicadores tan plurales y
hasta contrarios, que ni se acercan al evangelio; los
vaivenes en lo moral con un amplio arco de oscilación,
según qué convenga; tantas variadas maneras de
decir que se vive a Jesús, a veces hasta contrarias; la
identificación de la vivencia religiosa con un
individualismo que se traduce en un sentirse bien en
todos los sentidos, no meterse en la vida de nadie,
todo es bueno si no me hace daño, si me va o no me
va esto que dice la iglesia. Esto es una vida religiosa
políticamente correcta, pero sin referencias a Dios y a
los demás.
Los bautismos son el día 1 de
Noviembre y el día 6 de
Diciembre a las 3:30 de la tarde.
La plática para Diciembre es el
día 30 de Noviembre. Después
de la misa de las 9:30 de la
El Señor Obispo de ciudad Altamirano,
Máximo Martínez Miranda nos visitó el
lunes pasado y celebro la Santa Misa a
las 7 de la noche. Después hubo una
cena para todos y la comunidad
mexicana pudo saludar al Señor
Obispo con todo cariño.
Jesús simplifica y hace una reducción importante y
sencilla, respondiendo a lo que le preguntan sobre qué
es importante (amar a Dios) y explicando lo que no le
preguntan: que el amor a Dios se verifica con el amor
al prójimo, a los demás y, por tanto, lo primero e
importante son los demás. Olvidar esta referencia
esencial de la vida de Jesús en su relación con Dios,
ha hecho al cristiano entrar en una mediocridad de
vida, una vida sin significatividad.
