St. Mary’s Parish

Annapolis, Maryland

Dear Parishioners, “Mom why are carrots orange?” “Because that is the way God made them.” “OK” said Susie only half accepting her moms answer. “Mom why do we put onions in the pot roast, I don’t really like onions?” Suzie’s mom said patiently, “because your father and I do like them and you don’t have to eat them if you don’t like them honey.” “Ok mom.” A split second later, Suzie asked, “Mom why do we cut the roast in half?” Suzie’s mom became a little short and snapped back “because that is the way we have always done it!” In an attempt to sooth Suzie’s apparent bruised feelings she said to Suzie, “When I was your age and grandma showed me how to make a pot roast, she told me to cut it in half. I am not sure why we do it, let’s call her and ask.” So they called and grandma told them she was not sure why they cut the roast in half but that is the way her mom had showed her when she was a little girl. She said she would call her at the nursing home and ask her about it. She hung up with her and called Suzie’s great grandmother and said Suzie wanted to know why they cut their roast in half. The great grandmother began to laugh on the other end of the phone and said, “I cut my roast in half because my pan is to small to put the whole roast in one piece. Sometimes we do things because that is the way we have always done them. And sometimes we think certain things because it is the way we have always thought about them. This may be the case with this Labor Day weekend. How do we think about Labor Day? What do we think about Labor Day? Labor Day used to be a big holiday. Now it is a day used as a reference point to remind us that the summer season is coming to an end and that school is beginning; that life is returning to "normal". Americans have celebrated Labor Day weekend since 1882. From picnics and parades, to fireworks and barbecues, thousands of people every year take time to relax and recreate. While every working person in the nation knows that Labor Day means a day off from work, most may not know the history behind it and why it is a national holiday. And for Christians, celebrating Labor Day should mean much more than honoring the workers of America. Labor Day was instituted as a national holiday on June 28, 1894, a day set aside to honor the working men, women and children who were the industrial foundation of America. But the concept of an official day off of work began long before Congress voted it into existence. For the Christian, a day of rest began at Creation: "And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work." (Genesis 2:2, 3) This day of rest was of such importance to God, that He established it as part of His law: "Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD. Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant -- for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed." (Exodus 31:15-17) God created the heavens and the earth, birds of the air and beasts of the field. Every living thing seen today originally was created by God. But the scriptures teach that God does not sleep nor does He need rest, yet He chose to set aside a day to rest from His work. He did so as an example for all of mankind to follow. This day of rest is meant to be a time of refreshing, of looking over accomplishments and either enjoying the results or seeking ways for improvement. God, upon His day of rest, looked over everything He created said it was good. His work was complete. Unfortunately, this is not the case for workers today. There will always be more work to finish. As we celebrate this Holiday weekend, here are some thoughts to ponder: What work has God gifted me for? What is my attitude about my work? Do I recognize God’s presence in my work or work place? Do I consider my work holy or sacred? How can I live my faith better at work? Do I live out the gospel values at work? God Bless Us all Fr. Tizio Email: [email protected] Pastor’s Pun: What happens if you spend too much time in the coffee shop? You’ll be latte for work.

They are a lexicon of the human condition-assuring us that our hopes and fears and desires are just like the rest of humanity's, and that God is with us always. Joan Chittister, in her book "The PsalmsMeditations for Every Day of the Year," provides a favorite Psalm for each month and provides a reflection for each day so that the prayer can become a benediction that pulsates in out hearts. It will bring your heart the comfort of the ages. Available in the Prayer section of the SJN Parish Library.

A Message from Fr. Tizio - News to Share As we start a new school year, I am pleased to share with you the news of someone who has indeed answered the call. Effective August 24, I have appointed Mr. Fred Haller to be the president of St. Mary’s School. He will report directly to me and work closely with the school principals, Mrs. Rebecca Zimmerman and Mrs. Mindi Imes, to bring a renewed focus on strategic planning, curriculum and technology enhancements, and our vision for a connected, vibrant school. His work will directly support the preparation of our students to become the next generation of Catholic leaders. Mr. Haller has been a member of our school board, most recently serving as its chair. That service has given him an in-depth understanding of the needs and goals of St. Mary’s School. He also brings with him years of professional experience in teaching, school administration, advancement, admissions, and technology integration in the classroom. As an educational technology consultant with experience in numerous schools, he can bring what is the best and brightest to our school, helping us to continue grow, adapt, and have a future that is as brilliant as our rich history! Please join me in welcoming and supporting Mr. Haller in his new role and continue to pray for the continued success of St. Mary’s School.

Intenciones de Misa Sabado Domingo

St. Mary’s Parish

Annapolis, Maryland

Queridos feligreses, "Mamá ¿por qué las zanahorias son anaranjadas?" "Porque esa es la manera en que Dios los hizo." "O.K.?", dijo Susi, aceptando a medias lo que su Mama le dijo. "Mamá ¿por qué ponemos la cebolla al asador, que no me gusta la cebolla?" La madre de Suzie dijo pacientemente, "porque a tu padre y a mi nos gustan, tú no tienes que comerlas, si no te gustan" "OK Mamá "Una fracción de segundo después, Suzie le preguntó:" Mamá, ¿por qué cortamos la carne por la mitad? "La madre de Suzie ya comenzó a perder la paciencia y dijo" porque esa es la manera en que siempre lo hemos hecho! "En un intento de calmar los sentimientos heridos de la niña, dijo a Suzie," Cuando yo tenía tu edad y la abuela me enseñó cómo hacer un asado, ella me dijo que había que cortarlo por la mitad. No estoy segura de por qué lo hacemos, vamos a llamarla y preguntarla. "Así que me llamaron y la abuela les dijo que no estaba segura de por qué cortaba el asado por la mitad, sino que es la forma en que su madre le había enseñado cuando era una niña. Ella dijo que iba a llamar a su madre en el hogar de ancianos y preguntarle al respecto. Colgó con ella y llamó a la bisabuela de Suzie y le dijo que Suzie quería saber por qué se cortaba el asado por la mitad. La bisabuela empezó a reír al otro lado del teléfono y dijo: "Yo cortaba el asado por la mitad porque mi sartén era muy pequeña para poner toda la carne en una sola pieza. A veces hacemos cosas porque esa es la manera en que siempre las hemos hecho. Y a veces pensamos de cierta manera porque siempre hemos pensado así. Esto puede ser el caso de este fin de semana del Día del Trabajo. ¿Cómo podemos pensar en el Día del Trabajo? ¿Qué pensamos sobre el Día del Trabajo? El Día del Trabajo solía ser una gran fiesta. Ahora se trata de un día que se utiliza como punto de referencia para recordarnos que la temporada de verano está llegando a su fin y que la escuela está empezando; que la vida está volviendo a la "normalidad". Los estadounidenses han celebrado el fin de semana del Día del Trabajo desde 1882. A partir de picnics y desfiles, con fuegos artificiales y barbacoas, miles de personas cada año toman tiempo para relajarse y recrearse. Si bien cada persona que trabaja en el país sabe que el Día del Trabajo significa un día libre en el trabajo, la mayoría no sabe la historia detrás de él y por qué es un día de fiesta nacional. Y para los cristianos, la celebración del Día del Trabajo debe significar mucho más que honrar a los trabajadores de América. Día del Trabajo se instituyó como fiesta nacional el 28 de junio de 1894, un día reservado para honrar a los que trabajan hombres, mujeres y niños que fueron la base industrial de América. Pero el concepto de un día oficial fuera del trabajo comenzó mucho antes de que el Congreso haya votado su existencia. Para el cristiano, un día de descanso comenzó en la Creación: ". Y en el séptimo día Dios terminó la obra que había hecho, y reposó el día séptimo de toda la obra que había hecho Y bendijo Dios al día séptimo, y lo santificó, porque en él reposó de toda la obra". (Génesis 2: 2, 3) Este día de descanso fue de tal importancia para Dios, que Él lo estableció como parte de su ley: "El trabajo se llevará a cabo durante seis días, pero el séptimo es sábado de reposo consagrado a Yave, por tanto, los hijos de Israel lo harán así. por generaciones como pacto perpetuo - porque en seis días hizo Yave los cielos y la tierra, y en el séptimo día cesó y reposó ". (Éxodo 31: 15-17) Dios creó los cielos y la tierra, las aves del cielo y las bestias del campo. Todo ser vivo visto hoy originalmente fue creado por Dios. Pero las Escrituras enseñan que Dios no duerme ni necesita descanso, sin embargo, Él optó por dejar de lado un día para descansar de su obra. Lo hizo como un ejemplo para que toda la humanidad lo siguiera. Este día de descanso está destinado a ser un tiempo de refrigerio, examinar los logros y, o bien disfrutar los resultados o la búsqueda de nuevas maneras de mejorarnos. Dios, en su día de descanso, miró por encima de todo lo que Él creó dijo que todo estaba bien. Su trabajo se había completado. Desafortunadamente, este no es el caso para los trabajadores de hoy en día. Siempre habrá más trabajo para terminar. Al celebrar este fin de semana de vacaciones, he aquí algunos pensamientos para reflexionar: ¿Para qué trabajo Dios me ha dado talento? ¿Cuál es mi actitud sobre mi trabajo? ¿Reconozco la presencia de Dios en mi trabajo o lugar de trabajo? ¿Considero mi trabajo santo o sagrado? ¿Cómo puedo vivir mejor mi fe en el trabajo? ¿Vivo los valores del Evangelio en el trabajo? Dios nos bendiga a todos Padre Tizio Email: [email protected]

Ser catequista Cada semana iremos indicando un actitud necesaria para ser un buen catequista

2. Comunica lo que vives. Comunicar la propia experiencia de fe es la primera forma de evangelizar. Normalmente somos y vivimos, por obra de la gracia de Dios, más de lo que sabemos y comunicamos en la catequesis. No siempre transmitimos bien todo lo que conocemos y vivimos. No tenemos palabras adecuadas para explicar la! experiencias más profundas de la vida cristiana. Cuántas veces hemos dicho el famoso refrán: «nadie da lo que no tiene». Así, pues, debe preocuparnos más tener algo que decir, que el cómo hemos de decirlo. El temor a fracasar en la misión nos impide, mucha veces, dar la catequesis con alegría y paz. Cada sesión de catequesis supone un acto de fe en la sabiduría, en el poder y en la misericordia de Dios para con su pueblo. Cuando vivimos la vida cristiana con sencillez de corazón y abandono en las manos de Dios, no debemos temer comunicar lo mucho o poco que vivimos según nuestra pobre manera de entender las cosas. El Señor estará con nosotros para hacer su obra a pesar de nuestras limitaciones y de los poderes
