“Where jealousy and selfish ambion exist, there is disorder and every foul pracce.” Dear Friends,

Last weekend we held our parish Couples Retreat “Encounter of Love” in which 22 couples parcipated. I am blessed to have been a part of that retreat and to have witnessed God’s love being outpoured on all the couples.

Today’s second reading from the leer of St. James begin with a statement that is so true for every human person, “Where jeal-ousy and selfish ambion exist, there is disorder and every foul pracce.” At the couples retreat, it was said that selfishness is destroying many Chrisan marriages thus they were reminded that married couples are to image God’s unselfish and uncondional love for humanity in how they love each other. Husbands were reminded that they are called to love and protect their wives as their own body. Couples must seek the good of the other at all mes because they are one flesh, one body.

When selfish ambion infests a marriage, it causes couples to neglect the feelings of the other, the good of the other. This ambion is also seen in today’s Gospel, while Jesus shares with his disciples the im-minent death that awaits him in Jerusalem, some disciples where think-ing about power and posion ignorthink-ing Jesus’ feelthink-ings and emoons. Je-sus, however does not deny posion and power, but teaches us the way to get there, “If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of al and the servant of all.”

Let us then, in every aspect of our lives be the servant of all in order to be the first in the Kingdom of Heaven.

With Love and Prayers, Fr. Bismarck

“Donde hay envidias y rivalidades, ahí hay desorden y toda clase de obras malas.”

Esmados Amigos,

El pasado fin de semana celebramos nuestro Rero parroquial de Parejas "Encuentro de amor" en el que parciparon 22 parejas. Tube la bendición de haber sido parte de ese rero y de haber sido tesgo de como el amor de Dios se derramó sobre todas las parejas.

La segunda lectura de hoy de la carta de Sanago comienza con una declaración que es tan cierta para cada persona humana, “Donde hay envidias y rivalidades, ahí hay desorden y toda clase de obras malas.” En el rero de parejas, se dijo que el egoísmo está destruyendo muchos matrimonios crisanos, por lo que se les recordó que las parejas deben reflejar el amor desinteresado e incondicional de Dios por la humanidad en la forma en que se aman el uno al otro. A los maridos se les recordó que están llamados a amar y proteger a sus esposas como a su propio cuerpo. Las parejas deben buscar el bien del otro en todo momento porque son una sola carne, un solo cuerpo.

Cuando la ambición egoísta infesta un matrimonio, provoca que las parejas descuiden los senmientos del otro, el bien del otro. Esta ambición también se ve en el Evangelio de hoy, mientras que Jesús comparte a sus discípulos la próximidad de la muerte que le espera en Jerusalén, algunos discípulos solo piensan sobre el poder y la posición ignorando los senmientos y emociones de Jesús. Jesús, sin embargo, no niega la posición y el poder, pero nos enseña el camino para llegar allí: "Si alguno quiere ser el primero, será el úlmo de todos y el servidor de todos".

Procuremos entonces, en cada aspecto de nuestras vidas ser el servidor de todos para ser los primeros en el Reino de los Cielos.

Con amor y oraciones, P. Bismarck

SEPTEMBER: DEDICATED TO THE SEVEN SORROWS OF MARY The month of September is dedicated to the Seven Sorrows of Mary. Devoon to the sorrows of the Virgin Mary dates from the twelh century, when it made its appearance in monasc circles under the influence of St. Anselm and St. Bernard. The Cistercians and then the Servites undertook to propagate it. It became widespread in the fourteenth and especially the fieenth centuries, parcularly in the Rhineland and Flanders, where Confraternies of the Sorrowful Mother

sprang up. It was in this context that the first liturgical formularies in her honor were composed. A provincial council of

Mainz in 1423 made use of these in establishing a "Feast of the Sorrows of Mary" in reparaon for Hussite profanaons of her images. In 1494 the feast appeared in Bruges, where the Precious Blood of Christ was venerated; later on it made its way into France. It did not, however, become widespread in France before Benedict XIII included it in the Roman Calendar in 1727 and assigned it to the Friday before Palm Sunday.

Some Churches had previously celebrated this feast during the Easter season. Others, however, celebrated the Joys of the Blessed Virgin during the Easter season, as is sll done today at Braga. In some places it was entled "Recollecon of the Feasts and Joys of the Blessed Virgin Mary." - EExcerpted from The Church at Prayer, Vol. IV A.G. Marmort.

Have you ever been pursued? The idea of someone “chasing us” can bring up different images in our mind. On the one hand, being chased by someone or something can be frightening. On the other hand, the idea of someone pursuing us is flaering, but perhaps we wonder what their moves actually are. The Catechism of the Catholic Church

says that “in every me and in every place, God draws close to man.” God pursues us. God is connually chasing us, but not to harm us or for His own gain. GGod pursues us out of love. And God’s pursuit is not

like the pursuit of others that might grow red or give up on us. GGod is relentless in seeking us out.

All teenagers, ages 13-18, are invited to join us for our WEEKLY youth group!

Join us for a series based on this year’s theme called “RRELENTLESS FATHER”! WWe will start at noon (right aer 10:45
