1 Saint Mary Roman Catholic Church 1000 North Jefferson Avenue, Goldsboro NC Rev. Alex Gonzalez, Pastor Deacon Webster James May 10, 2015 Sixth Sunday of Easter (Mother s Day) Prayer to the Mother of the Lord for all Mothers Mary, on this day when we honor all mothers, we turn to you. We thank the Lord, whom you serve, for the great gift of motherhood. Never has it been known that anyone who sought your intercession was left unaided by grace. Dear Mother, thank you for your Yes to the invitation of the angel which brought heaven to earth and changed human history. You opened yourself to God s word and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. Dear Mother, intercede for all of our mothers. Ask your Divine Son to give them the grace of surrendered love so that they could join with you in giving their own Fiat. May they find daily strength to say yes to the call to the sacrificial love-the very heart of the vocation of motherhood. May their love and witness be a source of great inspiration for all of us called to follow your Son. On this Mothers Day, Mother of the Word Incarnate, pray for us who have recourse to you. Amen.

We have cancelled the class that was to start on May 6th and are now offering this new time and dates: June 21, 28, July 12, 19 & 26 (Sundays) from 11:30am to 1pm. If you would like to join this class please, call the Parish Office at ext. 10 or 26 to register. Cost is $20.00 per person Bishop s Annual Appeal Update In asking for support of this year s appeal, Bishop Burbidge said, Each year, parishes across the Diocese seek to carry out the teaching of Christ by participating in the BAA. When we reach out to serve the poor and defenseless in society, we are putting our faith into action, by caring for those in need through charity. When we open the door of faith to others to know and love God, we are becoming joy-filled witnesses in bringing others to Christ through evangelization. And when we nourish and strengthen our faith through the Holy Eucharist, we participate fully in the worship and celebration of the cross, aligning our suffering and those of others with Christ. I encourage each of us to reflect upon the gifts God has given to our families over the past year and pray for discernment and guidance in determining our pledge for this year s appeal. I want to thank all those who have contributed to the 2015 BAA. I continue to be overwhelmed by the generosity of many people in our community. A special thanks to Kevin Bacon and all who helped organize, support and conduct the campaign this year. This type of work requires hard work, patience and lots of hope.

We need two people for each hour and we hope that many of the men of the parish will volunteer to take the evening hours. Eucharist...Source and Summit of our Faith. Respect Life Ever Wonder Why...? (Part II) Why is it... that when a woman is happy about her pregnancy, it's a "baby"? She is asked questions like, "when is your baby due?" When she goes to an abortion clinic, she is often told that "it" (the growing child) is only a blob of tissue or a product of conception? Why is it... so many people are uninformed about abortion and it receives so little coverage in the media, despite the fact that it is the number-one cause of death in the US every year. Why is it... that you can kill an unborn baby anytime you want to, for any reason under the sun, but if you destroy a turtle egg on a Florida beach, you go to jail? Why is it." if abortion is supposed to be available to give a woman a "choice", that illegal coercion is the number-one cause of abortion in America today? Also, the number-one cause of death among pregnant women is murder. Why is it... that many do not see the handwriting on the wall... that abortion is a catalyst to infanticide, euthanasia, assisted suicide, human cloning etc. only to name a few contemporary assaults on the sanctity of human life? Why is it... that the major Fortune 500 companies will proudly support Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortion, but pro-life companies are scared to death to openly support the unborn, for fear of retribution in the marketplace? Why is it... that when a priest gives a pro-life homily he is accused of being too political, when abortion is clearly a vitally important moral issue and a violation of the Fifth Commandment? Why is it... that in every election cycle, God-fearing citizens cast their vote for politicians who support abortion when we know that the greatest gift God gives us is life and the greatest attack on life is abortion? ~Respect Life for Church Bulletins May 10 (week 8) Baby Joseph begins to move. At eight weeks his arms are bending and flexing. Fingers are developing and Joseph is now swimming. He may be practicing for the 2032 Olympics. Happy Mother s Day! for nothing will be impossible for God. Luke 1:37 A Letter from our Pastor Happy Mothers Day, Motherhood is a high calling. What can replace the love of a mother and a grandmother? The love, guidance and influence they provide to their children are distinct and invaluable. All mothers who wish to be true to their high calling need only look to the woman who became the greatest mother of all. Born into humble surroundings, she was called by God to be the mother of the Son of God. I am very grateful for the hard work and dedication of the women in every single parish that I have been assigned to. No matter where I have been as a seminarian or as a priest, I have always seen the promise of Jesus fulfilled: "And everyone who has left houses, brothers, sisters, father, mother, children or land for the sake of my name will be repaid a hundred times over, and also inherit eternal life" (Matthew 19: 29). Concretely, not only have many dedicated women assisted me in my ministry as a priest, I have also been adopted by many spiritual mothers and many spiritual sisters that have always taken very good care of me. On this beautiful day dedicated to motherhood, we must contemplate the reality that God is love that that love is always shown through the face of a loving mother. My prayer is that the Holy Spirit keep renewing the hearts of our mothers so they can live out their calling to motherhood with a deeper and more generous love within the daily circumstances of their lives. Blessings to all natural and spiritual mothers! Happy Mothers' Day. Father Alex

Abogado Certificado en Migración El ministerio social católico tiene un abogado autorizado y reconocido para casos de migración si usted necesita algún servicio comuníquese con: Jim Palmer (habla español) 2717 Memorial Blvd., Greenville Alguna vez te has Preguntado..Por qué.? Parte II Por qué cuando una mujer está feliz por su embarazo s por un bebé? A ella le hacen preguntas, como Cuándo nacerá su bebé? Por qué cuando va a una clínica de abortos, a menudo le dicen que eso (el bebé en gestación) es solo una burbuja de tejidos o un product o de la concepción? Por qué hay tanta gente mal informada sobre el aborto y este tiene tan poca cobertura por los medios informativos a pesar de ser cada año la causa número uno de muertes en los Estados Unidos? Por qué por cualquier razón, alguien, en cualquier momento pueden matar a un niño no nacido, pero, si en una playa de Florida destruyes un huevo de tortuga, puedes ir a prisión? Por qué ahora, si supuestamente el aborto está disponible para darle a una mujer una elección, coerción illegal es la causa número uno de abortos en los Estados Unidos? También la causa número- uno de muertes por asesinato de mujeres embarazadas. Por qué...muchos no ven la escritura a mano en la pared de que el aborto es un catalizador del infanticidio, euthanasia, suicidio asistido, clonación humana, etc solo para nombrar algunos asaltos contemporaneos a la santidad de la vida humana? Por qué las más importantes compañias de Fortun 500, orgullosamente auspiciarán la Paternidad Planeada, el mayor proveedor de abortos, pero compañias a favor de la vida están muy temerosas, para apoyar abiertamente al no nacido, por temor a retribuciones en el mundo del mercadeo? Por qué un sacerdote que da un sermón en favor de la vida, es acusado de ser demasiado politico, cuándo claramente el aborto es un tema de vital importancia moral y una violación del Quinto Mandamiento? Por qué en cada ciclo electoral, Ciudadanos-temerosos de Dios, darán su voto a politicos que apoyan el aborto, cuando sabemos que el mayor regalo que Dios nos da, es la vida y el mayor ataque a la vida es el aborto? ÁMENSE UNOS A OTROS El domingo pasado escuchamos el familiar pasaje del Evangelio de san Juan en el que Jesús usa el símbolo de la viña y las ramas. En ese pasaje escuchamos que si permanecemos en Cristo daremos mucho fruto. El Evangelio de hoy nos dice cuál es ese fruto: el amor. La segunda lectura de hoy junto con el Evangelio crean un gran himno de amor. El coro de este himno es sencillo -Dios nos ama tanto que envió a Jesús al mundo para que tuviéramos vida. El Señor Jesús que nos dijo la semana pasada que permaneciéramos en él, esta semana nos dice que permanezcamos en su amor. En un mundo marcado por las divisiones y el terrorismo, las últimas palabras del Evangelio de hoy son un gran reto: "Esto es lo que les mando: que se amen los unos a los otros". Copyright (c) J. S. Paluch Co. Mensaje para todos los graduados..

9 Sexto Domingo de Pascua 8 10 de mayo de 2015 Lecturas De La Semana Lunes: Hechos 16:11-15; Salmos 149:1b-6a; 19b; Juan 15:26 16:4a Martes: Hechos 16:22-34; Salmos 138 (137):1-3, 7c-8; Juan 16:5-11 Miércoles: Hechos 17:15, 22 18:1; Salmos 148:1-2, 11-14; Juan 16:12-15 Jueves: Hechos 1:15-27, 20-26; Salmos 113 (112):1-8; Juan 15:9-17 Viernes: Hechos 18:9-18; Salmos 47 (46):2-7; Juan 16:20-23 Sábado: Hechos 18:23-28; Salmos 47 (46):2-3, 8-10; Juan 16:23b-28 Domingo: Hechos 1:1-11; Salmos 47 (46):2-3, 6-9; Efesios 1:17-23 o Efesios 4:1-13 [1-7, 11-13]; Marco 16:15-20 "No los llamo ya siervos... a ustedes los he llamado amigos" (Juan 15:15). Toda amistad se basa en una mutua atracción, simpatía y reciprocidad. Jesús dice que somos sus amigos 1) cuando hacemos lo que nos manda y 2) porque nos enseña lo que recibe de su Padre. La amistad con Jesús, es más que una emoción, se basa en el compromiso y la perseverancia. --Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright (c) J. S. Paluch Co. TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE Gracias a los grupos, asociaciones y movimientos tenemos muchos movimientos evangélizadores dentro de la Iglesia católica. Movimientos como Cursillos de Cristiandad, Talleres de Oración, S.I.N.E., la Renovación Carismática, Espiritualidad de la Cruz, Jornadas de Vida Cristiana, que dependen de himnos religiosos o de un canto lema para ir formando una conciencia cristiana en sus miembros o seguidores. Esta formación se basa en una relación íntima y emocional entre Jesús y sus seguidores. Un himno carismático dice así: "Yo tengo un amigo que me ama", y otro de ellos dice: "Él es mi amigo Jesús, él es Dios, él es rey, es amor y verdad". Estos dos himnos de autor desconocido, enfatizan lo bello que es tener una relación íntima con el Señor, mejor dicho, con nuestro amigo Jesús. Jesús mismo enfatiza este tipo de relación cuando dice: Felicitamos a Jose Guadalupe Morquecho y Christy Elena Hernandez, quienes se casaron aquí el 18 de april de 2015
