One cannot read the Gospels without becoming aware that Jesus frequently went out of His way to make contact with disreputable people. Certainly, he did nothing to avoid them. Jesus is not impressed by the self-righteous, nor does He classify people (as we often do) into good folks and sinners. In today s Gospel we are told that Simon, Jesus host at dinner, was a Pharisee someone who took great pains to fulfill all aspects of the Law, including many traditions not found in the Pentateuch. We also know Simon s welcome lacked warmth and even the courtesy customarily shown to invited guests. By contrast, the woman who approached Jesus at Simon s home and showed Him the courtesy of anointing His feet was considered sinful by pharisaic standards, though we re not told in what respect. She seems to have accepted the judgment of outstanding sinfulness, and Jesus agreed with her judgment about herself. The difference between Jesus attitude and Simon s is that the Pharisee disdained the woman, while Jesus considered her acknowledged sinfulness as a special opportunity for grace. Those who know themselves forgiven have good reason for gratitude, love, and generosity toward others. Those who think they have no significant need of forgiveness are more likely to be arrogant, meting out approval and friendship in small doses. It is no accident that the liturgy matches this Gospel with the reading from 2 Samuel. Any talk of great sin, great repentance, and great love, would suggest to a devout Jew the figure of King David, the proverbial passionate penitent. The well-known story of David s sin in taking Bathsheba and having Uriah killed had long stood as a reminder that great sinners can become great penitents and lovers. The story of David s confession told in today s first reading, however, follows the part where the prophet Nathan confronts David s sin by telling him a story, supposedly about someone else. Novelists and playwrights often use this strategy because it allows us to look from the outside at a situation without defensiveness and only later do we realize that a similar situation exists in our own lives. So Nathan tells David about a rich man who took the only sheep of a poor man in order to feed a guest, and David is ready to take the life of the rich man for his wrong-doing. That is when Nathan says to him, You are the man, exposing his sin against Bathsheba and her husband, Uriah. Today s liturgy begins at this point, where Nathan now confronts David head on and David s response is to see himself in Nathan s story and confess his great sin. All of today s readings pose the question of whether we recognize ourselves as sinners sinners who have been forgiven much, who have had the debt of five hundred silver pieces remitted, who are justified not by our own efforts but by the death of Jesus. In today s second reading St. Paul expresses the meaning of these stories in a theology of justification we are justified not by having perfectly observed the Law but by having believed in Jesus Christ crucified and in God s redeeming grace. Two paradoxical things are true: All are sinners in need of redemption by the sheer grace of God, and yet all are also called to repent and to live lovingly. Our struggle as Christians is to live out both of these truths in our attitudes and behavior. Perhaps the paradox is best understood in this way: If we acknowledge our sin and believe we have received God s forgiveness, we open ourselves to the possibility of genuine and lasting change a new beginning each time we repent. More than that, we can then offer others the same kind of forgiveness and expectation of change, dropping our stereotypes and learning to love open-handedly, as Jesus did. This is a great challenge for today s civil holiday Father s Day. Those who author life, in the very image of God, always face the call to love more deeply, more faithfully, more honestly. May we at Notre Dame Catholic Church and School both support and benefit from their call! In Jesus, Fr. Mike TODAY S READINGS First Reading The Lord forgives David for taking the wife of Uriah, and for having Uriah killed (2 Samuel 12:7-10, 13). Psalm Lord forgive the wrong I have done (Psalm 32). Second Reading If justification comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing (Galatians 2:16, 19-21). Gospel Jesus forgives the woman because of her great love (Luke 7:36 8:3 [7:36-50]).

3 Undécimo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario 16 de junio de 2013 Oro y Plata Te Doy Lo Que Tengo (Hechos 3:6) LECTURAS DE LA SEMANA Lunes: 2 Cor 6:1-10; Sal 98(97):1, 2b, 3-4; Mt 5:38-42 Martes: 2 Cor 8:1-9; Sal 146(145):2, 5-9a; Mt 5:43-48 Miércoles: 2 Cor 9:6-11; Sal 112(111):1bc-4, 9; Mt 6:1-6, Jueves: 2 Cor 11:1-11; Sal 111(110):1b-4, 7-8; Mt 6:7-15 Viernes: 2 Cor 11:18, 21-30; Sal 34(33):2-7; Mt 6:19-23 Sábado: 2 Cor 12:1-10; Sal 34(33):8-13; Mt 6:24-34 Domingo: Zac 12:10-11; 13:1; Sal 63:2-6, 8-9; Gal 3:26-29; Lc 9:18-24 Saludos en el Señor! Uno no puede leer los Evangelios sin llegar a ser consciente que Jesús, con frecuencia se salió de su camino para hacer contacto con personas de dudosa reputación. Ciertamente, Él no hizo nada para evitarlos. Jesús no se deja impresionar por la justicia propia, ni el clasificar personas (como hacemos a menudo) en buenas personas y pecadores. En el Evangelio de hoy nos dice que Simón, el anfitrión en la cena de Jesús, era un Fariseo - alguien que hizo grandes esfuerzos para cumplir con todos los aspectos de la Ley, incluyendo muchas de las tradiciones que no se encuentran en el Pentateuco. También sabemos de la bienvenida de Simón carente de calidez - e incluso la cortesía habitual para recibir a los invitados. Por el contrario, la mujer que se acercó a Jesús en casa de Simón, le mostró la cortesía de ungir sus pies, considerado pecaminoso por los estándares de los fariseos, aunque no se nos dice en qué sentido. Ella parece haber aceptado la resolución de la pecaminosidad excepcional, y Jesús estuvo de acuerdo con su juicio sobre sí misma. La diferencia entre la actitud de Jesús y Simón es que el Fariseo despreciaba a la mujer, mientras que Jesús consideró su pecaminosidad como una oportunidad especial para concederle su gracia. Los que se conocen a sí mismos perdonados tienen buenas razones para ser agradecidos, amar y ser generosos hacia los demás. Los que piensan que no tienen gran necesidad del perdón son más propensos a ser arrogantes, dan su aprobación y amistad en pequeñas dosis. No es casual que la liturgia coincida con este Evangelio y con la lectura del segundo libro de Samuel. Cualquier conversación de gran pecado, gran arrepentimiento y gran amor, sugiere a un Judío devoto, la figura del Rey David, el penitente apasionado proverbial. La conocida historia del pecado de David al tomar a Betsabé y después de haber matando a Urías, había permanecido durante mucho tiempo como un recordatorio de que los grandes pecadores pueden convertirse en grandes amados penitentes. La historia de la confesión de David en la primera lectura de hoy, sigue a la parte en que el profeta Natán confronta el pecado de David, diciéndole una historia, supuestamente de otra persona. Los novelistas y dramaturgos a menudo utilizan esta estrategia, ya que nos permite "mirar desde afuera" a una situación sin actitud defensiva - y sólo más tarde nos damos cuenta de que una situación similar existe en nuestras propias vidas. Así que Natán le dice a David acerca de un hombre rico que tomó a la única oveja de un pobre hombre con el fin de alimentar a un invitado, y David está listo para tomar la vida del hombre rico por su mala acción. Es entonces cuando Natán le dice: "Tú eres el hombre", revelando su pecado contra Betsabé y su marido, Urías. La liturgia de hoy comienza en este punto, donde Natán se enfrenta ahora a David y la respuesta de David es verse a sí mismo en la historia de Natán y confesar su gran pecado. Todas las lecturas de hoy plantean la cuestión de si nos reconocemos como pecadores - los pecadores que han sido muy perdonados, que han tenido la deuda de quinientos denarios remitidos, que están justificados no por sus propios esfuerzos, sino por la muerte de Jesús. En la segunda lectura de hoy, San Pablo expresa el significado de estas historias en la teología de la justificación - somos justificados no por haber observado perfectamente la Ley, sino por haber creído en Jesucristo crucificado y en la gracia redentora de Dios. Dos cosas paradójicas son verdaderas: Todos somos pecadores en necesidad de redención por la pura gracia de Dios, y sin embargo, todos también estamos llamados a arrepentirnos y vivir con amor. Nuestra lucha como Cristianos es vivir estas dos verdades en nuestras actitudes y comportamientos. Tal vez la paradoja se entiende mejor de esta manera: Si reconocemos nuestros pecados y creemos que hemos recibido el perdón de Dios, nos abriremos a la posibilidad de un cambio real y duradero - un nuevo comienzo cada vez que nos arrepentimos. Más que eso, entonces podemos ofrecer a los demás la misma clase de perdón y esperanza de cambio, dejando caer los estereotipos y aprendiendo a amar abiertamente, como lo hizo Jesús. Este es un gran desafío para la fiesta civil de hoy el día del Padre. Ellos los autores de la vida, a imagen de Dios, siempre se enfrentan al llamado de amar más profundo, más fiel, y más honestamente. Que nosotros en la Parroquia y Escuela de Notre Dame, los apoyemos y beneficiemos de su llamado! En Jesús, Padre Mike LECTURAS DE HOY Primera Lectura El Señor perdona a David por tomar a la esposa de Urías y por haber matado a Urías (2 Samuel 12:7-10, 13). Salmo Señor, perdona el mal que he hecho (Salmo 32 [31]). Segunda lectura Si la justificación viene por cumplir la ley, entonces Cristo murió en vano (Gálatas 2:16, 19-21). Evangelio Jesús perdona a la mujer debido a su gran amor (Lucas 7:36 8:3[7:36-50]).

7 BooksToGo from the Notre Dame Parish Library are available in the narthex of the church, near the bell tower door. Biographies for relaxed summer reading are currently featured. Our newest library helper, Debra Payne, has reviewed an assortment from our large collection. The Story of Thomas More was published in This is a good thing, as during this time biographers would present their subject in a positive light. This is a very easy read and a great book for teenage homeschoolers. St. Katharine Drexel: Pioneer for Human Rights. She truly used her treasures for the poor. Also, the story tells of the dark side of daily discrimination mind set. This is another worthwhile teenage read. The Secret Diary of Elisabeth Leseur. The book is a good read taken whole. However, if time is limited, this book neatly divides into thirds. First is the In Memoriam as a history overview written by her priest husband. By her prayer life, she converted her atheist husband who, after her death, became a priest. This foreword contains an extensive bibliography of anti-christian works written in the later 19th century and books that counter them. Part two is Elisabeth s actual diary. It could be called The Homemaker s Guide to Sainthood or Living a Holy Secular Life The third section is her spiritual exercises. These can be used as short breaks in the work day. The cute little book The Little Flowers of Saint Francis of Assisi has some real spiritual gems in it. Unfortunately, it is written in old English and will not be for everyone. Padre Pio: The True Story is wonderful. First, it reminds me of a Star Trek episode. He grew up in a totally alien environment from USA. The practices and customs fascinate on their own. Next, it is an interesting life story. And finally, it answers the question of why Padre Pio loved visits from American GI s! Before letting a teenager read this, the parent needs to read first. Some of the antique practices for spiritual development mentioned may be an influence to an impressionable youngling. The Long Loneliness by Dorothy Day. I started this book as a hostile reader. I ended it with a clearer understanding and agreement, especially considering the time in which she lived. Dorothy is up for canonization, so learning about her is important. She had a great love for the poor and lived voluntary poverty. The Last of the Fathers by Thomas Merton. This little book is a two-fer. It includes Merton s essay on St.Bernard and a papal encyclical on the same. The essay does a good job with historical background pertinent to Bernard s work.

9 PASTORAL NOTES The Pastor s Upcoming Retreat and Vacation When I was asked to return to this assignment several years ago, in my prayer I promised the Blessed Mother, the Patroness of Notre Dame Catholic Church and School, that I would visit her shrines at Fatima and Lourdes, after we were restored pastorally and financially, knowing that she would be seeking the graces of her Son, Jesus, on our behalf. In order to fulfill that promise, during the first week of my vacation beginning June 25, I will be traveling with a priest friend to Portugal, Spain and France and visiting these sacred sites as a pilgrim. During these days of retreat I will bring all of the intentions of this parish and school, and all of our prayers of thanksgiving for the many, many benefits that we have received in these past three years. If you wish to write intentions for me to take, please bring them to the office and Eva will put them together for me to bring along with me. I will bathe in the springs of Lourdes seeking healing for all in the parish. After the retreat I will be going to a town near Dijon, France to preside at a wedding of one of our former Notre Dame School students. I will return to the United States on July 8th and will continue my vacation, and return to the parish and school on August 1st. I pray that I will be restored and refreshed to begin again. I entrust all of you to the care of Father Gustavo and the parish and school teams until I return. Father Gustavo and I have both been reassigned to Notre Dame Catholic Church and School for another year. We embrace our mission in His mercy and in Mary s love. Please pray for us both that we will have the grace to be faithful and effective ministers of the Christ. I will be continuing all of my other ministeries, especially St. Peter Upon the Water and teaching/preaching so I am still only here on a limited basis. But I will serve with faith and joy. In Jesus, Fr. Mike NOTAS PASTORALES Próximo Retiro y Vacaciones del Pastor Cuando se me pidió regresar a este puesto hace varios años, en mis plegarias le prometí a la Santisima Virgen, patrona de la Iglesia Catolica y la Escuela de Notre Dame, que visitaría sus santuarios en Fátima y Lourdes en cuanto pudiéramos reponernos pastoral y financieramente, sabiendo que Ella le pediría a su Hijo esas gracias para nosotros. Para poder cumplir esa promesa, durante la primera semana de mis vacaciones, que empezarán el 25 de junio, viajaré con un sacerdote amigo a Portugal, España y Francia para visitar esos lugares santos como peregrino. Durante estos días de retiro, llevaré todas las intenciones de esta parroquia y escuela, y todas nuestras plegarias en acción de gracias por los muchos, muchos beneficios que hemos recibido en los ultimos tres años. Si ustedes desean escribir sus intenciones para que me las lleve, por favor tráiganlas a la oficina, y Eva las acumulará para que me las pueda llevar. Me bañaré en el manantial de Lourdes para pedir la sanación de todos en la parroquia. Después del retiro, iré a un pueblecito cerca de Dijon, en Francia, para presidir en la boda de una antigua alumna de la Escuela Notre Dame. Regresaré a los Estados Unidos el 8 de julio, continuaré mis vacaciones, y regresaré a la parroquia y la escuela el 1º. de agosto. Espero regresar restaurado y refrescado para volver a empezar. Los dejo bajo el cuidado del Padre Gustavo y los equipos de la parroquia y la escuela hasta mi regreso. Tanto el Padre Gustavo como yo hemos sido re-asignados a la Iglesia y la Escuela de Notre Dame por otro año. Aceptamos nuestra misión en Su misericordia y en el amor de María. Les rogamos oren por los dos para que tengamos la gracia de ser fieles y efectivos ministros del Cristo. Continuaré con todos mis otros ministerios, especialmente San Pedro Sobre las Aguas, y enseñar/predicar, así es que continúo estando aquí en tiempo limitado. Pero serviré con fe y gozo. En Jesús Padre Mike
