Again we thank you for your generosity and may God continue to bless you! Seniors Ministry Movie Matinee. Seniors are invited to meet in the St. Faustina Room on Tuesday, August 11, 1:30pm, for a showing of For the Greater Glory. Popcorn and drinks will be served. Signing up in the Parish Office will ensure enough seats are available. Healing Masses: Tuesday, August 11, 6:30pm and Friday, August 14, 12pm. The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick will be available during Mass for every baptized Catholic over the age of reason. Prayer teams will also be available immediately after Mass to pray with people for healing and other needs. Anointing of the sick primarily is for spiritual healing. Physical healing might occur, but it is not the main purpose of the sacrament. Certainly the sacrament should not be expected to automatically cure the sick person. Such an expectation tends toward superstition (cf. CC2111). Baptized children below the age of reason cannot commit personal sin and so do not need anointing of the sick if they are in danger of death. Rather, when in danger of death, such children can be given confirmation, for spiritual strengthening and more fully to initiate them into the Christian religion. Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time The next Painting Palooza will be held on Friday, August 21 in Loreto Hall at 7pm. Please register by to Janet Thoughts From this Sunday s Readings by Fr. John Previous reflections can be found on his blog at FrJohnMurphy.blogspot.com Dorothy Day, an important 20 th Century American Catholic social activist and writer once wrote, Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul. These two simple sentences sum up the message of today s Gospel from John 6: In last week s Gospel, John 6:1-15, we heard how Jesus and his disciples fed thousands of people with five barley loaves and two fish. And we heard how they wanted to make Jesus King. Today we hear how the crowd followed Jesus back to Capernaum where he confronted them about their motives. They wanted more food and a king. Jesus wanted to give them the food that endures for eternal life. Bread is perishable. Two thousand years ago people only made enough bread for one day because it became inedible quickly. Even today with vast improvements in food technology bread does not stay fresh for very long. So when Jesus told the people that he wanted to give them food that will last forever, they were incredulous. They understood that manna was bread from heaven but manna did not guarantee eternal life. It was simply food. We understand with thousands of years of hindsight that Jesus wanted to nourish their souls. He wanted to give them spiritual bread. The crowd in Capernaum didn t get it. He told them that all they had to do was believe in the one [God] sent. Their response was, prove it. Jesus answer to them and to us was I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst. Those of us who are here in Holy Trinity Catholic Church today believe that Jesus was the one God sent. We believe that he offers us food that endures for eternal life. And we believe that the Eucharist is that food. We are here because we want spiritual nourishment. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that There is no surer pledge or dearer sign of this great hope in the new heavens and new earth "in which righteousness dwells," than the Eucharist. Every time this mystery is celebrated, "the work of our redemption is carried on" and we "break the one bread that provides the medicine of immortality, the antidote for death, and the food that makes us live for ever in Jesus Christ." As we reflect on the significance of the Eucharist in our lives, let s join with St Catherine of Siena who prayed, Father, I am hungry; for the love of God give this soul her food, her Lord in the Eucharist," Our living God, we hunger for lasting life and happiness and the fulfilment of all our hopes. Satisfy all our hungers through your Son Jesus Christ, our bread of life. And when he has filled us with himself, may he lead and strengthen us to bring to a waiting world the food of reconciliation and joy which you alone can give to the full. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Reflexiones sobre las lecturas de este domingo del Padre Rico. 2 de agosto del 2015 Décimo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario El Pan como Regalo: Uno asocia el pan con la idea de "ganarse el pan." Y no está mal porque existe el pan "ganado," o sea, el pan que nos ganamos a través del esfuerzo de sembrar, cultivar, cosechar, amasar, hornear. Pero no todo pan es esfuerzo; hay pan que es regalo; pan que nos recuerda que en el fondo todo es regalo, hasta el mismo esfuerzo. El pan, en efecto, es ante todo el símbolo del sustento para la vida. Pero, no es la vida misma un regalo? Es decir: qué hemos hecho para merecer existir? Qué dimos a cambio para que en justicia se nos diera vivir? Y si el empezar a vivir fue regalo y puro don, entonces, estrictamente hablando, qué puede haber dentro de la vida que no tenga radicalmente la condición de regalo y de don? Incluso las mismas fuerzas con que nos esforzamos existen porque nosotros existimos, y ello es siempre regalo! No dar nada por descontado: Este carácter esencial de la vida como "don continuado" uno lo olvida fácilmente. Pronto uno se acostumbra a que las cosas "deben ser" de un determinado modo y "tienen que estar." Las damos por descontadas. Se vuelven parte del inventario de la vida y las consideramos como derechos adquiridos. En esta categoría están las leyes de la naturaleza, la estabilidad y seguridad de la vida en sociedad y la salud, cuando uno la tiene y disfruta. Es en este punto donde las contradicciones y sobre todo los imprevistos nos cambian la escena. Un accidente, o simplemente una circunstancia en que nos vemos sin esos recursos que ya considerábamos como "debidos" nos obligan a replantear la vida. Usualmente la primera reacción es inmadura y quejumbrosa, como Israel en el desierto. A su vez, la respuesta de Dios, cuando llega en ese contexto de incertidumbre y precariedad, adquiere un significado nuevo porque es un recordatorio de que todo viene de Él--incluyendo nuestra propia existencia. El Don y el Donante: El pan que llega como regalo, el "Pan del Cielo" es Cristo. Esa expresión indica varias cosas. Por lo pronto implica que Él es el gran recordatorio del plan y las condiciones iniciales, las de la creación. Luego, es una enseñanza viva: la salvación es gratuita, es por gracia, porque la existencia misma ya es una "gracia," ya es un don. Y ambos dones, el de existir y el de ser salvo, nos han llegado por Cristo. Por otra parte, el Pan del Cielo no ha caído solo, ni ha caído porque sí. El Pan del Cielo ha sido regalado y todo receptor de este regalo ha de preguntarse por quién es el donante. El donante, según explica Cristo, es Dios nuestro Padre. Recibir a Cristo como don es recibir al Padre como donante. Y recibir al Padre como donante es admitir que uno mismo es don, a imagen de Cristo. Amén Clases de inglés como segundo idioma ( ESL ) Se ofrecerán en la Iglesia Católica St. Philip Benizi, los martes y jueves, 7-9pm, en el Edificio Educacional Hartmayer.
