~ Pastor’s Column ~ Dear Parishioners, It was a wonderful week so far. Monday I had the joy of having a great gathering of our dedicated group leaders, representing over30 groups that are active in our parishes. What a blessing!! I could feel the anticipation and excitement to revive our groups and activities. I look forward working with you all. All the groups will be listed soon on our website. Tuesday I had six couples who came to attend the Baptism preparation classes. This again means that we have a wonderful young community. Over one hundred CCD parents attend adult formation program every Sunday at St. John's. Our CCD programs at both parishes are going well. Social outreach programs are also gaining momentum. The Women Club had the first spaghetti dinner, which was successful. Bingo at Mount Carmel is doing very well and drawing great numbers. Thanksgiving programs in both parishes are planned in both the parishes. The tentative Christmas schedule is formulated. Please remember our beloved ones in the month of November. Please join us for the blessing of the graves at our parish cemetery on All Souls' Day. Having listened to some people, I am making a few changes in the Mass schedule.: Saturday English Mass will be at 5:30 pm, preceded by Pro Life Rosary at Mount Carmel, a tradition for the last 25 years can continue. Spanish/Bilingual Mass will be at 7pm. After a very hectic year of activities, I think that I deserve a break. I will be visiting my family in India during the month of November. Please pray for me and my family, especially my great grand niece, the new born, is still struggling to hang on to her precious life. She has survived two major surgeries of heart and lungs in her tender age of ten weeks. Little Elsa is very courageous and she opened her eyes and smiled at her mom and dad who have spent sleepless hours the whole time with her in the hospital. I thank you for all your support and love for me and the parishes. Sincerely your humble servant, Father Thomas

Columna del Pastor Queridos feligreses, La Semana pasada fue una semana maravillosa, el pasado lunes tuve la alegría de tener una reunión con los lideres de nuestros grupos parroquiales . Alrededor de unos 30. ¡¡Que bendición!! Sentía la emoción de revivir nuestros grupos y actividades. Espero con interés trabajar con todos ustedes. Todos los grupos serán listados en breve en nuestro sitio web. El Martes me reuní con seis parejas para las clases de preparación para Bautismo. Más de un centenar de padres asisten al a formación de adultos cada domingo, dicho programa se lleva cabo en la iglesia de San Juan Evangelista. El club de las mujeres tuvo la primera cena de espaguetis, que fue un éxito. El Juego de Bingo en Monte Carmelo está funcionando muy bien. Se están programando cenas de acción de gracias en ambas parroquias. Estamos trabajando en el calendario de Navidad. Por favor, recordemos a nuestros seres queridos en el mes de noviembre y acompáñenos , para la bendición de las tumbas en el cementerio de la parroquia, Monte Calvario. Después de haber escuchado a algunas personas, estoy haciendo algunos cambios en el horario de Misas nuevamente: Sábados: Misa en Inglés 5:30 pm, precedido por el Rosario pro-vida en Monte Carmelo, una tradición de los últimos 25 años. Misa Español será a las 7:00 pm SJE Después de un año muy agitado de las actividades, creo que me merezco un descanso. Voy a visitar a mi familia en india durante el mes de noviembre. Por favor oren por mí y mi familia, especialmente la hija de mi sobrina, la cual , sigue luchando por su preciosa vida. Ha sobrevivido a dos grandes cirugías de corazón y pulmones en su tierna edad de diez semanas. Elsa es muy valiente y ella abrió los ojos y sonrió a sus padresque han pasado horas sin dormir todo el tiempo con ella en el hospital. Le doy las gracias por todo su apoyo y su amor hacia mí y las parroquias. En Cristo Jesús Padre Thomas Kallumady

Meditacion del evangelio “Hijo de David, ten compasión de mi” Bartimeo era un pobre ciego que pedía limosna al borde del camino que, procedente de Jerusalén, llega a Jericó. Hasta que un día pasó Jesús cerca de él. Al principio, el ciego sólo percibía el rumor de la gente que pasaba, más bulliciosa que de costumbre. Extrañado ante aquel alboroto preguntó que ocurría: Es Jesús de Nazaret que pasa, le dijeron. Entonces la oscuridad que le envolvía se tornó luminosa y clara por la fuerza de su fe, y lleno de esperanza comenzó a gritar con todas las fuerzas: “Jesús, Hijo de David, ten compasión de mí..." También nosotros somos muchas veces pobres ciegos sentados a la orilla del camino, pordioseando a unos y otros un poco de luz y de amor para nuestra vida oscura y fría. Sumidos como Bartimeo en las tinieblas de nuestro egoísmo o de nuestra sensualidad. Quizá escuchamos el rumor de quienes acompañan a Jesús, pero no aprovechamos su cercanía y seguimos sentados e indolentes, tranquilos en nuestra soledad y apagamiento. Es preciso reaccionar, es necesario recurrir a Jesucristo, nuestro Mesías y Salvador. Gritarle una y otra vez que tenga compasión de nosotros. La voz del ciego se alzaba sobre el bullicio de la gente, tanto que era una nota discordante y estridente, molesta para todos. Cállate ya, le decían. Pero él gritaba aún más. Jesús no quiso hacerle esperar y llevado de su inmensa compasión llamó a Bartimeo. Cuando el mendigo escuchó que el Maestro lo llamaba, arrojó su manto, loco de contento, dio un salto y se acercó como pudo a Jesús. También a nosotros nos llama Cristo para preguntarnos como a Bartimeo: "¿Qué quieres que haga yo por ti?”. Bartimeo no dudó ni un momento en suplicar: "Maestro, que pueda ver". Jesús tampoco retarda su respuesta: "Anda, tu fe te ha curado". Y al instante la oscuridad del ciego se disipa bajo una luz que le permite contemplar extasiado cuanto le rodea, ese espectáculo único que es la vida misma. Vamos a seguir clamando con la misma plegaria en el fondo de nuestra alma, sin cansarnos jamás: Señor, que yo vea. Señor, que pueda contemplar tu grandeza divina, que tu luz mantenga encendido nuestro amor y brillante nuestra esperanza.
