Gospel Teaching: When the above question is asked of Jesus, he answers with a quotation from Deuteronomy that is part of the prayer said by faithful Jews many times every day Love God with all of your soul, mind and strength. But Jesus continues and broadens the requirement to Love beyond your relationship with God, and states a second commandment, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Extending your love to your neighbor all others in this world and treating them with the same respect that you have for your own welfare, means that "You are not far from the kingdom of God." How far are you from the kingdom? KING AHEAD SHARING THY BOUNTY is this weekend. Our receiving agency is the St. Stephen UMC Food Pantry.

For more information or to tour the school, please contact JPII is Hitting the High Marks As a new school in a competitive market, John Paul II Catholic School has focused on expanding its curriculum to increase the academic success of its students. A primary measure of that success is national standardized tests such as the ACT and SAT. The attached graphic indicates the incredible achievement of JPII s Class of 2018 on the ACT. Last year s seniors earned an average composite ACT score of 25.6, which is a staggering 7.3 points higher than the South Carolina state average of 18.3, said JPII Principal Walt Dupre. Our students scored highest in the critical area of reading, averaging a reading score of 27.8, which is 9.2 points higher than the state average of Success on the ACT, as well as other factors, allowed JPII graduates to enroll in high-quality colleges and universities such as New York University, Catholic University, American University, Savannah College of Art and Design, Furman University, Wofford College, Clemson University, and University of South Carolina Honors College. Furthermore, based on the ACT college readiness benchmark, the graduates of JPII have a much greater chance of being successful in college compared to their peers. ACT college readiness benchmarks indicate that 95% of our students are prepared for their college English courses compared with only 42% of students who attend public schools in the state. Overall, nearly half of our graduates have been deemed college ready by ACT compared to 14% of the public school students in South Carolina, explained Mr. Dupre. We are proud of our achievement, which is a testament to the diligent work of both our students and our faculty. We look forward to the continued growth and success of our school and our graduates. To learn more about JPII, please visit or attend Open House on Sunday, December 2 for 11am Mass and noon tours.

Si desea obtener más información sobre nuestra Iglesia o desea registrarse como nuevo feligrés, por favor acérquese a la Oficina del Ministerio Hispano o visite nuestra página de internet: Bautizos Para recibir información acerca de la hora y los requisitos necesarios para poder bautizar, por favor contacte la oficina del Ministerio Hispano. Próxima Plática Pre-bautismal Nuestra próxima plática será el Miércoles 14 de Noviembre a las 7:30 p.m.en el Salón Familiar. REFLEXIÓN DOMINICAL En nuestra vida diaria decimos, y lo decimos con verdad, que nuestra bondad se demuestra haciendo obras buenas: obras son amores y no buenas razones. El árbol bueno da frutos buenos y el árbol malo, frutos malos. Por sus frutos se conocen los árboles. Lo importante aquí es que entendamos qué es lo que hace buena a una obra. Y lo que aquí nos dice Jesús es que es siempre el amor a Dios y al prójimo el que determina la bondad de nuestras obras buenas. Es decir, que una obra legalmente buena no es moralmente buena si no está inspirada directamente en el amor a Dios y al prójimo. Podemos rezar mucho, y hacer muchas limosnas, y cumplir fielmente los mandamientos; si no es el amor a Dios y al prójimo el que inspira y motiva nuestras buenas acciones, estas acciones no son moralmente buenas, no nos salvan. Los fariseos se fijaban sobre todo en el cumplimiento legal y externo de las obras que estaban mandadas en la Ley; Jesús prefiere que nos fijemos en el amor con que hacemos estas obras. Porque al final, como nos repetirá frecuentemente San Pablo, sólo nos salvará el amor, el amor a Dios y al prójimo. Oremos para que en nuestra comunidad de San Francisco cada día aumente el amor y la fraternidad en tre nosotros.

9 Letanías a María (XL Parte) INTENCIÓN DEL PAPA FRANCISCO Para este mes de noviembre, el Papa Francisco pide rezar por la paz, para que el lenguaje del corazón y del diálogo prevalezca siempre sobre el lenguaje de las armas. Presentamos en esta edición la cuadragésima y última parte de nuestra catequésis acerca de las Letanías a la Virgen María: REINA DE LAS FAMILIAS Es un título que faltaba en las letanías y que Juan Pablo II se encargo de añadir. Las familias tenían necesidad de una Reina. Y una Reina fuerte, que fuera parte de una familia, abogada y defensora contra un enemigo abiertamente declarado contra las familias, el Demonio. Hoy tiene el maléfico pensamiento de destruir la familia. Y ya ha hecho bastante mal. Pero se le enfrenta su eterna rival, María Santísima. Todos somos miembros de una familia y todos queremos que las familias se sostengan en el amor y en la unidad. Invoquemos a la Reina de la Familia. REINA DE LA PAZ La imagen de la Virgen María bajo la Advocación de Nuestra Señora de Fátima, continúa visitando los hogares de las familias de la comunidad de San Francisco por el Mar. Un hermoso momento para que juntos en familia oremos por las vocaciones en el mundo y por la unidad familiar. En la semana comprendida entre el 27 de octubre al 03 de noviembre la imagen de Nuestra Señora estuvo en el hogar de la familia de los abuelos Alvarez- García. Si desea que la imagen de la Virgen Peregrina visite su hogar, por favor comuníquese con la Oficina del Ministerio Hispano. VIRGEN PEREGRINA OREMOS DIARIAMENTE Oración por las Vocaciones Señor Jesús... Envía a la Diócesis de Charleston más Sacerdotes, más Diáconos, hermanos y hermanas. Elije hombres y mujeres de Fe de nuestros hogares, parroquias y escuelas para servir al pueblo de Dios. María, Madre de la Iglesia, ayuda a aquelllos a los que han recibido el llamado, a ofrecer un dichoso si a la invitación de Dios. Amén. Tan necesaria en nuestros tiempos. Si invocáramos más a María, si rezáramos el rosario con más frecuencia y devoción se acabarían las guerras, todas las guerras. Está prometido. Pero no lo creemos. Seguimos tercamente empeñados en pelear con nuestras piedras, flechas, espadas, cañones y bombas. A su Hijo se le llama entre otras cosas, Príncipe de la paz. Pues bien, este príncipe, cansado de que no le hagamos caso, nos ha dicho insistentemente: Si quieren la paz, hagan lo que Ella les diga. Él nos ha pedido que recemos el rosario. Dios mismo ha prometido paz a cambio de rosarios. María es una Reina bellísima, muy poderosa. María es una Madre amorosísima, la mejor de todas. María es la delicia de Dios. María es la flor más bella que ha producido la tierra. Su nombre es dulzura, es miel de colmena. Dios la hizo en molde de diamantes y rubíes, y luego rompió el molde. Le salió hermosísima, adornada de todas las virtudes, con sonrisa celestial. Y, cuando moría en la cruz, nos la regaló. Esa mujer es mi madre bendita...
