Stewardship Reflection, June 30, 2024, 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time

”…as a matter of equality your abundance at the present time should supply their want, so that their abundance may supply your want, that there may be equality.” 2 Corinthians 8:14

One of the tenants of living a grateful and generous lifestyle is giving without expecting anything in return. It is important that we not only grow, nurture, and share our gifts; but that we also teach our children and encourage others to do the same. This is the communal aspect of our Catholic faith. We are the “Body of Christ.” We are called to be dependent on each other and not live in isolation.

30 de junio de 2024, 13o Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

” ... En el momento actual la abundancia de ustedes suple la necesidad de ellos, para que también la abundancia de ellos supla la necesidad de ustedes, de modo que haya igualdad.” 2 Corintios 8:14

Una de las características de vivir un estilo de vida agradecido y generoso es dar sin esperar nada a cambio. Es importante no solo aumentar, cuidar y compartir nuestros dones; sino también es importante que se lo enseñemos a nuestros hijos y que animemos a los demás a hacer lo mismo. Ese es el aspecto comunitario de nuestra fe Católica. Somos el “Cuerpo de Cristo”. Somos llamados a depender los unos de los otros, no a vivir en aislamiento.

Stewardship Reflection, July 7, 2024, 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

”As the Lord spoke to me, the spirit entered me and set me on my feet, and I heard the one who was speaking say to me, 'Son of man, I am sending you…'” Ezekiel 2:2-3

God has a plan for each of us. He calls us to do something for Him. But, He doesn't leave us on our own to figure it out. He gives us the resources we need to do His work. Are you listening for God's call? When you hear it, do you get on your feet and do the work He asks of you? Do not be afraid. God doesn't call the equipped, he equips the called. Answer His call.

 

7 de julio de 2024, Domingo 14o del Tiempo Ordinario

Cuando me habló, el Espíritu entró en mí y me mantuvo de pie para que pudiera escuchar al que me hablaba. Me dijo: “Hijo del hombre, yo te envío...” Ezequiel 2:2-3

Dios tiene un plan para cada uno de nosotros. Nos llama a hacer algo por Él. Sin embargo, no nos deja de nuestra cuenta para resolverlo. Él nos da los recursos que necesitamos para hacer Su obra. ¿Estás escuchando el llamado de Dios? Cuando lo escuchas, ¿te levantas y vas a hacer el trabajo que Él te ha pedido? No tengas miedo, Dios no llama a los que están equipados, Él equipa a los que llama. Responde a su llamado.

Stewardship Reflection, July 14, 2024, 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

”He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick -- no food, no sack, no money in their belts.” Mark 6:8

Imagine taking nothing but a stick when you go on a trip. The Apostles must have really trusted in God's providential care. Think of all the material things “we can't live without” in today's world. We make our life's journey more difficult because of all the material baggage that we drag along. Putting God first in everything and putting our money and possessions second gives us freedom because we don't become “slaves” to wanting to acquire more things.

14 de julio de 2024, Domingo 15o del Tiempo Ordinario

“Les ordenó que no llevaran nada para el camino: ni pan, ni bolsa, ni dinero en el cinturón, sino solo un cayado.” Marcos 6:8

Imagine que solo lleva un cayado cuando va de viaje. Los apóstoles debían realmente confiar en el cuidado providencial de Dios. Piense en todas las cosas materiales “sin las que no podemos vivir” en el mundo actual. Hacemos nuestro viaje por la vida más difícil por todo el equipaje material que arrastramos. Poner a Dios en primer lugar en todo, y a nuestro dinero y posesiones en segundo lugar nos da libertad porque no nos transformamos en “esclavos” de querer adquirir más cosas.

Stewardship Reflection, July 21, 2024, 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” Mark 6:31

Do you spend time, every day, alone and in silence listening to how God is calling you? If not, you are missing out on a wonderful opportunity to develop a more personal relationship with Him. Unless we talk and more importantly, listen to God every day, how else will we know how He is calling us? Consider making a retreat this year, spend some “alone” time with God.

21 de julio de 2024, Domingo 16o del Tiempo Ordinario

“Jesús les dijo: Vengan conmigo ustedes solos a un lugar apartado y descansen un poco.” Marcos 6:31

¿Pasa tiempo, cada dia, solo y en silencio escuchando como Dios lo llama? Si no es así, está perdiendo una maravillosa oportunidad para desarrollar una relación más personal con Él. A menos que hablemos, y más importante, que escuchemos a Dios cada dia ¿cómo sabremos que Él nos llama? Considere hacer un retiro este año, pasar algún tiempo “a solas” con Dios.

Stewardship Reflection, July 28, 2024, 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time

”There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what good are these for so many?” John 6:9

The miracle of the Loaves and Fishes carries two important messages. First, no matter how little we have, we always have enough to share. Second, Christ can take our humble gifts and do great things with them if we are just willing to let Him. Nothing is impossible with God. All of our gifts, big or small, were given to us for a reason. No gift is too small or insignificant!

28 de julio de 2024, Domingo 17o del Tiempo Ordinario

“Aquí hay un muchacho que tiene cinco panes de cebada y dos pescados; pero ¿qué es esto para tantos?” Juan 6:9

El milagro de los Panes y los Peces lleva dos mensajes importantes. El primero, que no importa que tan poco tenemos, siempre tenemos suficiente para compartir. El segundo, Cristo puede tomar nuestros humildes dones y hacer grandes cosas con ellos, solo tenemos que estar dispuestos a permitírselo. Nada es imposible con Dios. Todos nuestros dones grandes o pequeños nos han sido dados por una razón. ¡Ningún don es demasiado pequeño o insignificante!

San Damiano Spiritual Life Center

(For June 29-30 and July 6-7 bulletins)

Seeking Friendship with Christ - Men's and Women's Retreat

Join Fr. Daniel Hanley, coordinator of the blessed Stanley Rother House of formation at Mount St. Mary's Seminary, at the Arlington Diocese's San Damiano Retreat Center in White Post, VA and set aside time to understand the life of God within us and open ourselves to the movement of prayer. Prayer is the most proper activity of a baptized soul. As breathing is a necessary part of bodily life, so prayer is "respiration" in the life of grace. Prayer may be understood simply as opening the will to God--but as simple as this may seem, it is not always easy to live. True prayer always comes from and returns to the Eucharist and bears the fruit of love of God and of neighbor. Our goal in this retreat is to form practical resolutions to help us to live in more constant union with Jesus. This silent retreat begins at 5 p.m. on Friday, July 12, and ends at 1 p.m. on Sunday, July 14. Retreat cost is $285 per person. For further information or to register, please contact Deacon Mark Maines at mark.maines@arlingtondiocese.org

Finding Jesus with Saints Francis and Clare - Men's and Women's Retreat

This silent retreat begins at 5 p.m. on Friday, July 19, and ends at 1 p.m. on Sunday, July 21. Retreat cost is $285 per person.
