October 24, 2021, Stewardship Refelction, 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“And Jesus said to him, 'Go your way; your faith has made you well.' And immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.” (Mark 10:52)
Faith is believing in something even though you may not be able to physically see it. Many people think that miracles don't happen anymore. This is hard, but try to focus on the positive and not the negative things in your life. When you focus on your blessings instead of your hardships, miracles will seem common. You will see God's active presence in your daily life. You will begin to develop an attitude of gratitude.

24 de octubre de 2021, Domingo 300 del Tiempo Ordinario

“y Jesús le dijo. 'Sigue tu camino; tu fe te ha curado'.   E inmediatamente pudo ver y lo siguió en su camino”  (Marcos 10:52)La fe es creer en algo aun cuando no pueda verlo físicamente.  Muchas personas piensan que los milagros ya no suceden.  Esto es difícil, pero trate de centrarse en las cosas positivas de su vida y no en las negativas.  Cuando se centra en sus bendiciones en lugar de hacerlo en sus dificultades, los milagros parecerán comunes.  Verá la presencia activa de Dios en su vida cotidiana.  Usted comenzará a desarrollar una actitud de gratitud.

October 31, 2021, Stewardship Reflection, 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time

“And 'to love him with all your heart, with all your understanding, with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself' is worth more than all the burnt offerings and sacrifices.” (Mark 12:33)
Of all the gifts that God gives us, the one He wants the most is our heart. He wants us to share out of our love for Him, not out of obligation. Using our talent in parish ministry and contributing money to support our parish mission is important, but it's more important to spend time in prayer with God daily and discern how He is calling us to be generous with all of our gifts. Not just the visible ones, but the invisible ones like love, mercy and forgiveness.

31 de octubre de 2021, Domingo 310 del Tiempo Ordinario

“Y amar a Dios con todo el corazón, con todo el entendimiento y con todas las fuerzas, y amar al prójimo como a uno mismo, es más importante que todos los holocaustos y todos los sacrificios.” (Marcos 12:33)
De todos los dones que Dios nos da, Él que más quiere es nuestro corazón. Él quiere que compartamos por amor a Él, no por obligación. Utilizar nuestro talento en el ministerio parroquial y contribuir con dinero para apoyar nuestra misión parroquial es importante, pero más importante es pasar tiempo en oración con Dios diariamente y discernir como Él nos llama a ser generosos con todos nuestros dones. No solamente los visibles, sino los invisibles como el amor, la misericordia y el perdón.

Novemer 7, 2021, Stewardship Reflection, 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treasury. For they all contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, her whole living. ” (Mark 12:43-44)
Jesus gets right to the point - we are all called to give money to support the mission of the Church, regardless of our circumstance. No gift is too small or insignificant! Giving money to support the mission of our local parish is a matter of our faith, just like praying and participating in parish ministries. When you make a financial offering, is it from your “first fruits” or from what is “left over”?

7 de noviembre de 2021 Domingo 320 del Tiempo Ordinario

“Yo les digo, esta pobre viuda puso más al tesoro que todos los otros contribuyentes. Porque ellos contribuyeron de su abundancia, pero ella en su pobreza ha puesto todo lo que tenía, su sustento.” (Marcos 12:43-44)
Jesús fue justo al punto - somos llamados a dar dinero para apoyar la misión de la Iglesia, independientemente de nuestras circunstancias. ¡Ninguna donación es demasiado pequeña o insignificante! Dar dinero para apoyar la misión de nuestra parroquia local es un asunto de nuestra fe, al igual que lo es orar y participar en los ministerios parroquiales. Cuando usted hace una oferta financiera, ¿es de sus “primeros frutos” o de lo que “le sobra”?

November 14, 2021, Stewardship Reflection, 33rd Sundary in Ordinary Time

“And then they will see 'the Son of Man coming in the clouds' with great power and glory.” (Mark 13:26)

We will all have that day when we are standing before God and our life is played out like a movie.  When this happens and God asks each of us, “What have you done with the gifts that I have given you?”  How will you respond?  The good news - it's never too late to live and grateful and generous lifestyle.

14 de noviembre de 2021 Domingo 330 del Tiempo Ordinario

“Y entonces veremos al 'Hijo del del Hombre venir entre las nubes' con gran poder y gloria.” (Marcos 13:26)
Cada uno de nosotros tendrá un día que pararse delante del Señor y nuestra vida pasará frente a nosotros como una película. Cuando eso suceda y Dios nos pregunte a cada uno de nosotros, “¿Qué has hecho con los dones que te di?” ¿Como responderás? La buena nueva es que nunca es tarde para vivir y agradecer, y tener un estilo de vida generoso.

November 21, 2021, Stewardship Reflection, Feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

“Jesus answered, 'My kingdom does not belong to this world.” (John 18:36)
Life is short. How much time, energy and money do you put into building “your” kingdom here on earth? We all know we can't take it with us. The real kingdom is in the next life. Yet, how much time, energy and money do you invest in working for that eternal kingdom? Ask God for His guidance. Detach from earthly possessions. Generously share your material goods with others for the greater glory of God.


21 de noviembre de 2021 La fiesta de Nuestro Señor Jesucristo, el Rey del Universo

“Jesús respondió, 'Mi reino no pertenece a este mundo'.” (Juan 18:36)
La vida es corta. ¿Cuánto tiempo, energía y dinero ha puesto para construir “su” reino aquí en la tierra? Todos sabemos que eso no podemos llevárnoslo. El reino real es en la otra vida. Sin embargo, ¿qué tanto tiempo, energía y dinero invierte en trabajar para ese reino eterno? Pídale a Dios que lo guíe. Sepárese de sus posesiones terrenales. Comparta generosamente sus bienes materiales con los demás para la mayor gloria de Dios.

“But when these signs begin to happen, stand erect and raise your heads because your redemption is at hand.” (Luke 21:28)
We celebrate Advent each year in preparation for the birth of Jesus, His first coming, as we await His second coming. What will you do differently this Advent season to grow in friendship and love with Jesus? How will you inspire others to do the same? Start by sharing your God story with others, especially those closet to you. Invite and accompany them on their faith journey this Advent.

28 de noviembre de 2021 1er. Domingo de Adviento

“Cuando estas señales empiecen a suceder, levántense y alcen la cabeza porque su redención está cerca” (Lucas 21:28)
Celebramos el Adviento cada año en preparación para el nacimiento de Jesús, Su primera venida, mientras esperamos Su segunda venida. ¿Qué hará en forma diferente esta temporada de Adviento para crecer en la amistad y el amor de Jesús? ¿Cómo inspirará a otros a hacer lo mismo?
