Humility

Humility is a virtue in short supply in today's world. And yet our reading from the prophet Zechariah describes Israel's coming King, in whom we Christians see Jesus, as humble, riding on a colt, the foal of an ass. No great procession for our Lord and God, for he comes not on a golden chariot with banners and a great procession of soldiers and riches, but on a humble beast of burden.

Humildad

La humildad es una virtud escasa en el mundo de hoy, Y sin embargo, nuestra lectura del profeta Zacarias describe al re venidnte de Israel, en quien los cristianos vemos a Jesus, como humilde, cabalgando sobre un burrito, No hay gran procession para nuestro Senor y Dios, porque no viene en un carro dorado con estandartes y una gran procession de soldados y riquezas, sino sobre una humilde bestia de carga.

"Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).

These words of our Savior seem to be in stark contrast to the previous chapter from the same Gospel, when we were told that if we do not take up our crosses, we are not worthy of Christ. Connecting these two messages might help us on our faith journeys. Being a follower of Christ surely means that we must embrace the cross, in its mystery of both suffering and triumph. This is something that we need not do alone, for the burden is often too heavy for us to carry by ourselves.

Who, then, do we turn to?
We can turn to the Body of Christ the community of disciples gathered for worship. When we find the burden too heavy, let us remember that we can share that burden with our Christian sisters and brothers, who can help bring us rest.

"Vengan a mí, todos los que están fatigados y agobiados por la carga, y yo los aliviaré" (Mateo 11:28).

Esta palabras de nuestro Salvador son un gran contraste con el previo capítulo del mismo Evangelio, cuando nos dice que si no cargamos nuestra propia cruz, no somos dignos de Cristo. Relacionar estos dos mensajes puede ayudarnos en nuestro camino de fe. Ser seguidor de Cristo ciertamente significa que debemos abrazar la cruz, en su misterio que es sufrimiento y triunfo a la vez. Es algo que no necesitamos hacer solos, ya que la carga suele ser demasiado pesada para llevarla sin ayuda.

¿A quién volcarnos entonces?
Podemos volcarnos al Cuerpo de Cristo, a la comunidad de discípulos reunidos para el culto. Cuando sintamos que la carga es demasiado pesada, recordemos que podemos compartirla con nuestros hermanos y hermanas en Cristo que pueden traernos descanso.

SAINT MARIA GORETTI (1890-1902) July 6th

Does anything match a mother's pride in her children?
First Communions, confirmations, graduations, weddings: how these delight a mother's heart! Imagine, then, Assunta Goretti, the only mother ever to attend her child's canonization! In poverty-stricken rural Italy, widowed Assunta tended fields for the Serenelli family, whose eighteen-year-old son, Alessandro, propositioned her barely twelve-year-old Maria; then, when she resisted, crying, "It is a sin! God forbids it!" he stabbed her fourteen times. As she lay dying, Maria assured the attending priest, "Yes, I forgive Alessandro! I want him to be in Paradise with me someday." Imprisoned, unrepentant, Alessandro changed after dreaming that a radiant Maria had offered him fourteen lilies. "I've kept my promise," she smiled. "You'll be here with me someday." Upon release, he rushed to beg Assunta's forgiveness. "Jesus has forgiven you," she replied, "my Maria, too. How can I refuse?" Next morning, mother and murderer walked arm in arm to church and knelt side by side for Communion.

SANTA MARÍA GORETTI (1890-1902) 6 de Julio

María Goretti nació en Italia, cerca de Roma, en una familia campesina muy pobre y debido a ello se vieron obligados a vivir en un rancho y compartir la casa con la familia Serenelli. Dos años después sufrió la muerte de su padre, situación que obligó a la madre a asumir las labores del campo para mantener a la familia y, a María, la forzó a renunciar a la escuela para hacerse cargo del hogar y del cuidado de sus hermanitos; aun así, se daba tiempo para asistir al catecismo. A los 12 años María era una mujer bella y bien formada, fue precisamente esto lo que atrajo a Alejandro Serenelli, de 18 años, a proponerle que tuvieran relaciones sexuales, pero María se negó una y otra vez porque eso iba contra la voluntad de Dios. Cierto día llegó Alejandro a casa y al saber que María estaba sola quiso forzarla, pero María se opuso y, lleno de rabia, la apuñaló 14 veces. María murió al día siguiente, perdonándolo. Fue canonizada en 1950, estando presente su madre y sus hermanos.

Our Sunday bulletin is an important way for us to communicate with you, especially during these days of the Coronavirus pandemic. It might be the only way that we can reach some of you.

Every bulletin that you receive is paid for through the generosity of the businesses that you see advertised on the back cover. Most of these advertisers are members of our local community, and many belong to our parish. We urge you to think of them when you decide to have a meal or other item delivered to your door. Tell the business owners that you appreciate their support of our parish through their advertisements in the bulletin. This is one small way that we can work within our own community to weather the challenges that we face.

Together we can help each other make it through.
