MISSION STATEMENT The mission of our community is rooted in Jesus the Christ. This mission is to hear, respond to and proclaim the word of God as found in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures. Through the Sunday Eucharist we are called to ongoing conversion and personal spiritual formation. As a community, we are challenged to provide mutual support for a Catholic Christian lifestyle and are empowered to use our gifts to minister to the needs of others. We commit ourselves to the beatitudes, to the spiritual and corporal works of mercy, and to minister to the larger communities in which we live and work. We respect the dignity of every person, at all ages and stages of life. We hand on our Catholic heritage through catechesis, worship, service and witness. In carrying out this mission we further the kingdom of God in our midst.

Listen to that hug. It’s your Heavenly Father reaching his arms to you, the Holy Spirit whispering in our ear, hoping to draw you home. Classes will be starting on Monday, September 12. Please call the Parish Office for further information or to register (332.4777).

Then he lifted him up on his own animal, took him to an inn and cared for him.” (Luke 10:33-34) Adult: When have you gone out of your way to help a stranger in need?

The first "presbyters" were advisers to the bishops rather than what we would call "priests," yet by the year 1000 our present-day understanding of the ordained priesthood is clearly in place. The Germanic influence was strong in those days, reflected in a series of questions posed to the candidate about his intentions. The priest's role in the celebration of Mass had by then come to the fore, as the ritual notes that Mass vestments must be worn, the hands of the priest must be anointed with chrism, and a chalice with wine and water and a paten with a host must be given. Up to then, the ordination rite had stressed the presbyter as a collaborator with the bishop and a member of the order of presbyters. Then, in a not-so-subtle shift, the presbyter came to be seen as a "priest" designated to celebrate the Mass and, as the prayer suggests, to touch the chalice. By these days, remember, the cup had long vanished from Communion for the laity. A thousand years ago, today's patterns were already in place. The priest no longer saw himself as a member of a council of elders, a presbytery, and in some dioceses he had little influence over the bishop. Instead, he was either a pastor, with relationship to the eucharistic community in the parish, or he was a priest monk, offering Mass for the salvation of the departed or the intentions of the living.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE

Desde 1913, en la ciudad de Puntarenas, Costa Rica, la Virgen del Carmen es reconocida como la Virgen del Mar. En aquel año un barco llamado el Galileo naufraga en una tempestad y el pueblo angustiado por sus seres queridos recurrió al templo de la Virgen para pedir auxilio. Algunos días después todos los tripulantes fueron rescatados y llevados a Puntarenas. Según los tripulantes, mientras las lluvias y vientos amenazaban al Galileo una mujer los animó a que se echasen al agua y nadaran a tierra firme. Allí ella los alimentó y los acompañó hasta que fueron rescatados. Llenos de alegría, el pueblo llevó a los rescatados a la iglesia para dar gracias. Estos reconocieron a la Virgen del Carmen como la mujer que los había ayudado. Desde entonces el sábado más cercano al 16 de julio, el pueblo celebra en grande la fiesta del Carmen con grandes desfiles de barcos y yates. Entre música y fuegos artificiales los costarricenses vienen en embarcaciones adornadas desde toda la nación a celebrar con la Virgen del Mar que también se encuentra en una embarcación.

FATHER ISNARDO

I am very happy to be assigned to St. Lawrence Church. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I was born in Colombia February 13, 1970 to Arturo Serrano and María Luisa Rodriguez. On March 21, 1998, I was ordained a Priest in Ipiales Nariño, Colombia and belong to the Congregation of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri. In Colombia, I served as a school teacher and a Pastor of our church for six years. I also served as Superior of our religious community for three years. In January 16, 2006, I immigrated to the U.S. and have served in the following Sacramento diocese locations: parishes in Williams area, and Saint Vincent Ferrer Parish (Vallejo) and Immaculate Conception Parish (Sacramento). With love and happiness, I look forward to working with the St. Lawrence community in evangelizing and building up the Kingdom of God.

TOWER OF DAVID, PRAY FOR US “. . . If we do what we have always done, what our fathers did before us, we cannot go wrong. Satan wants to destroy this prayer, but in this he will never succeed. The Rosary is the prayer of those who triumph over everything and everyone. It was Our Lady who taught us this prayer, just as it was Jesus who taught us the Our Father.” --Padre Pío

PRAYER FOR SAINT BENEDICT - JULY 11

Admirable Saint and Doctor of Humility, you practiced what you taught, assiduously praying for God’s glory and lovingly fulfilling all work for God and the benefit of all human beings. You know the many physical dangers that surround us today, often caused or occasioned by human inventions. Guard us against poisoning of the body as well as of mind and soul, and thus be truly a “Blessed one for us”. Amen

ORACIÓN PARA SAN BENITO - 11 DE JULIO

Oh, Dios que al beatisimo confessor San Benito enriqueciste con el espíritu de todo los justos, concédenos a todos los que recordamos su memoria que, llenos del mismo espíritu, cumplamos con fidelidad lo que te prometimos en el bautismo, y con la ponderosa intercesión del Santo Patriarca San Benito, me vea liberado siempre de toda influencia diabólica, envidias, traiciones maldades, y también de los malos pensamientos y tentaciones, por Cristo Nuestro Señor, que vive y reina por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.

BLESSED KATERI TEKAKWITHA (1656-1680) - JULY 14

Though the New York State Thruway runs close by the North American Martyrs’ Shrine, traffic’s roar never pierces the peace enveloping Auriesville— Ossernon to Native Americans—in the lovely Mohawk Valley, where Kateri Tekakwitha was born barely ten years after the martyrdom of Isaac Jogues and his Jesuit and lay companions. Daughter of a Christian Algonquin mother and nonChristian Mohawk chief, Kateri’s parents died in a smallpox epidemic widely blamed on the missionaries. Moreover, many Native Americans had experienced exploitation at the hands of “Christian” traders and trappers, further discrediting the faith Kateri embraced in baptism, then pledged to live even more intensely in vowed virginity. Misunderstanding led to harassment, prompting her move to a Christian village farther north along the Saint Lawrence River. Despite this, Kateri’s faith remained undaunted, her selfless charity undiminished. Both before and after her death at twenty-four, this young “Lily of the Mohawks” drew countless converts to Christ by the fragrance of her goodness. Through us, does “the aroma of Christ” (2 Corinthians 2:15), attract others to the beauty of his gospel? —Peter Scagnelli, © Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.

JUBILEE YEAR OF MERCY

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Could anyone object to Jesus' supreme lesson in mercy, the parable of the Good Samaritan? Jesus' devoutly religious audience certainly did! Scant sympathy for anyone foolish enough to travel crime-ridden "Jericho Highway" alone. Much sympathy for priest and Levite, hurrying to assigned temple ministry, unwilling to risk ritual impurity through hands-on mercy. No sympathy for Jesus' scandalous hero. Samaritans were religious apostates and political enemies. Jesus challenges them--and us--to seek God's presence not only in liturgical beauty but in a fellow traveler's self-inflicted misfortunes. See God's presence even in someone outside the law, whose hands-on mercy springs not from religious obligation but from the heart's instinctive goodness. Since Jesus became our "Good Samaritan" despite our foolishness and sins, who are we to ration our mercy? "Who is my neighbor?" (Luke 10:29). The next person we see who needs hands-on mercy! No conditions, no limits, no exceptions. Especially in this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Jesus commands, "Go and do likewise" (10:37). Peter Scagnelli, Copyright ©, J. S. Paluch Co

AÑO JUBILAR DE LA MISERICORDIA Decimoquinto Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

¿Podría haber alguien que contradijera la excelente lección de misericordia en la parábola del Buen Samaritano? ¡Claro, la audiencia de Jesús que era religiosamente devota lo hizo! Muy poca simpatía gozaba alguien lo suficientemente tonto como para viajar solo por "el camino de Jericó" lleno de criminales. Bastante simpatía tenía un sacerdote y un levita, quienes a prisa se dirigían a realizar su trabajo en el templo, y que preferían evitar hacer una obra de misericordia evitando quedar impuros para la realización del culto. Nada de simpatía para la persona atenta que presenta Jesús. Para los judíos los samaritanos eran sus enemigos, tanto religiosa como políticamente. Jesús los desafía --y también a nosotros-- a buscar la presencia de Dios no solamente en la hermosura de la liturgia sino en esa persona extraña viajera que cayo en desgracia. Observa la presencia de Dios aún en alguien que está fuera de la Ley, quien hace una obra de misericordia que brota más de la bondad instintiva de su corazón que por sus obligaciones religiosas. Ya que Jesús se hizo nuestro "Buen Samaritano" pese a nuestras culpas y necedad, ¿quiénes somos nosotros para medir nuestra misericordia? ¿Quién es mi prójimo? (Lucas 10:29). ¡La próxima persona que veamos que necesita una obra de misericordia! Sin condiciones, sin limites, sin excepciones. Especialmente en este Año Jubilar de misericordia, Jesús ordenó "vete y haz tú lo mismo" (10:37).
