June 25 - 26, 2022

Today, we read that Jesus is first rejected by the Samaritans who know that He and His disciples are going to worship in Jerusalem. Some of His followers want the Samaritans to be punished for their rejection of Him. However, Jesus rebukes them because He wants only those who freely choose to respond to His invitation, not those who do so under threat of punishment for their refusal. So, Jesus gives others a personal invitation. They seem willing to respond, but only after they take care of other personal matters.

What the Lord is asking of His followers is a complete and freely chosen desire to do what He asks of them. By our asking Jesus to come into our hearts as our personal LORD AND SAVIOR, we will be willing to serve others who have been put in our lives without counting the personal costs. Our attitude toward The Holy Spirit (peace, love, patience, wisdom, knowledge, endurance, joy, etc.) would enable us to fully commit to showing our love and thanksgiving to Jesus by bringing His love to others.

Word Search Puzzle

The title of the puzzle to cs day says you are a “CHILD OF GOD”. God loves you so much that HE wants you to be HIS child no matter how old you are! HE wants you to ask JESUS, HIS SON, to be part of your life so you will always know HE is near you and will help you during your whole life.

As you work the puzzle, think about the words and look up what they mean or ask someone to explain them to you. Especially read the story of the boy David and the Giant in the Bible to see what he did with a stone because he love GOD and did what he was told. It's an exciting story look in 1Samuel 17.

The Inclusive Embrace of Catholicism

Jesus said: "In my Father's house there are many rooms!" That's also meant to be a description, at least ideally, of Christianity, Catholicism, the church, and our theological and ideological embrace.

Allow me an example: Most every year, I attend a Religious Education Congress (sponsored by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles) in Anaheim, California. It's always an uplifting, faith-filled event where more than 30,000 Christians come together to reflect on and celebrate their faith.

One of the little sub-themes there that I've always enjoyed is the particular placing of some of the book displays in the pavilion where the various publishers sell their wares. Invariably you will find, side by side, the booths for the CATHOLIC WORKER and IGNATIUS PRESS. They're miles apart ideologically yet here they are, side by side, on very friendly terms, participating in the same faith event, both representing something important within the same tradition, neither bent on excluding the other.

There's something important, I believe, to be learned from this, and not just for Roman Catholics. To build community we need to work with more than just those who are like-minded. Any community or church built with just the like-minded is not worth belonging to because it reflects neither what's best inside the human spirit nor, for those of us who are Christians, the inclusive embrace of Christ.

But that doesn't come naturally. What does come naturally is the proclivity to huddle together in fear and like-mindedness, like the disciples before Pentecost, barricaded behind locked door with our own kind, paranoid, suspicious of all who are not of our own mind. They huddled together for a while for a purpose, in fear, in loneliness, consoling each other within a certain fragility; but when they finally felt the real power of God's spirit, they burst out of those narrow confines.

To the Parishioners of Mary, Mother of our Savior Parish:

In your most recent packet of envelopes, you may have noticed a change especially for those who worshiped on the campus of Our Lady of the Rosary. Prior to the unification of our parishes, there were envelopes for specific parish needs such as heating, air conditioning and repairs. To help streamline our sacrificial giving, these envelopes have been removed. If in the past you have utilized these envelopes, please consider adding these funds to your regular weekly contribution. Only envelopes for Outreach, National and Diocesan collections as well as Holy Days will remain.

If you want to help with the food pantries, but do not want to shop or carry groceries, you can make a monetary donation instead which will go to the Outreach Ministry of our parish. Please place this envelope along with your weekly offering in the baskets at the center doors of the Church.

If you wish to contribute electronically please use the link provided below.
You can register for We Share at: ourladyoflourdes utica.weshareonline.org

Sincerely,
Fr. Joe

Attention Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers
