The Good, the Messy, and the Beautiful

God draws spouses ever closer to the Heavenly marriage through the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony, but this does not mean that the journey is easy. On the contrary, marriage can present spouses with many different kinds of struggles and difficulties, alongside the joys and triumphs of family life. Join us for this one-day event with Edward and Beth Sri, who will share from their 20+ years of marriage what lessons they have learned about the realities of marriage. From discussions about miscommunication, healing, intimacy, gifts, and more, you will walk away refreshed and strengthened in your vows! Join us Saturday, July 23, 2022 at Corpus Christi Church from 9 am to 3 pm. Coffee and lunch provided. $125 per couple. Register at arlingtondiocese.org/goodmessybeautiful.

July 3, 2022, Stewardship Reflection, 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“He said to them, 'The harvest is abundant, but the laborers are few…'” Luke 10:2

As Catholics we are all called to serve. Each of us has been given “charisms” otherwise known as gifts from the Holy Spirit to help build God's Church. Our charisms can only be used for good. We know that we are using them in the right ministry when we are filled with joy and we want to share stories about our charitable works. Discern how God is calling you to use your charisms. Say “yes” to what God is calling you to do and then do it! Share your joy and invite others to do the same.

3 de Julio de 2022, Domingo 14o del Tiempo Ordinario

Él les dijo, “La cosecha es abundante, pero los trabajadores son pocos...” Lucas 10:2

Como Católicos todos estamos llamados a servir. A cada uno de nosotros se nos han otorgado “carismas”, también conocidos como dones del Espíritu Santo, para ayudarnos a construir la Iglesia de Dios. Nuestros carismas solamente pueden utilizarse para bien. Sabemos que los estamos utilizando en el ministerio correcto cuando nos sentimos llenos de alegría y queremos compartir las historias acerca de nuestras obras de caridad. Descifre como Dios lo llama a utilizar sus carismas. ¡Dígale “sí” al llamado de Dios y luego póngalo en práctica! Comparta su alegría e invite a los demás a hacer lo mismo.

July 10, 2022, Stewardship Reflection, 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Jesus said to him, 'Go and do likewise.'” Luke 10:37 This was Jesus' command at the end of the Good Samaritan story. Did you know that the Samaritans and Jews despised each other? The moral of the story is to love our neighbor. That means loving someone you may not know, or someone that looks different than you, or someone that has different beliefs than you, or someone that you don't like. All without expecting anything in return.

10 de Julio de 2022, Domingo 15o del Tiempo Ordinario

“Jesus le dijo, 'Ve y haz lo mismo'” (Lucas 10:37) Este fue el mandato de Jesus al final de la historia del Buen Samaritano. ¿Sabía usted que los Samaritanos y los Judíos se despreciaban los unos a los otros? La moraleja de la historia es amar a nuestros vecinos. Eso quiere decir amar a alguien que usted quizás no conoce, que luce diferente a usted, que tiene creencias diferentes a las suyas, o que a usted no le gusta. Todo sin esperar nada a cambio.

July 17, 2022, Stewardship Reflection, 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“…I am a minister in accordance with God's stewardship given to me to bring to completion for you the word of God.” Colossians 1:25 We are all called to evangelize - to convert individuals and society by the divine power of the Gospel. Our faith is more attractive to others by our actions than by our words alone. We may not be called to evangelize like St. Paul, but we should look for opportunities to share our faith through our actions and words, especially with those closest to us, like our family, friends and neighbors. Pray for the courage to joyfully express your faith the next time the opportunity arises.

17 de Julio de 2022, Domingo 16o del Tiempo Ordinario

“...Soy ministro de acuerdo con el plan que Dios me ha dado: dar cumplimiento a la palabra de Dios.” Colosenses 1:25 Todos somos llamados a evangelizar - a convertir a los individuos y a la sociedad por el poder divino del Evangelio. Nuestra fe es más atractiva a los demás por nuestras obras que solo por nuestras palabras. Puede que no seamos llamados para evangelizar como San Pablo, pero debemos buscar oportunidades para compartir nuestra fe a través de nuestras acciones y palabras, especialmente con aquellos que están más cerca de nosotros, como nuestra familia, amigos y vecinos. Rece para tener el valor de expresar alegremente su fe la próxima vez que se presente la oportunidad.

July 24, 2022, Stewardship Reflection, 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Luke 11:9 Jesus assures us that if we ask, God will take care of what we need. The problem is that our culture often confuses what we really need with what we simply want. The truth is that many of us need very little. However, we usually want so much more! Stewardship is simply being grateful for all that we are and all that we have been given, and generously sharing all of our God-given gifts with others. Generosity is a gift that opens doors to new relationships with others and with God.

24 de Julio de 2022, Domingo 17o del Tiempo Ordinario

“Pidan, y se les dará; busquen, y encontrarán; llamen, y se les abrirá la puerta” Lucas 11:9 Jesús nos asegura que, si le pedimos, Dios se ocupará de nuestras necesidades. El problema es que nuestra cultura a menudo confunde lo que realmente necesitamos y lo que simplemente queremos. La verdad es que muchos de nosotros necesitamos muy poco. Sin embargo, ¡usualmente queremos mucho más! Corresponsabilidad es simplemente estar agradecido por todo lo que somos y por todo lo que se nos ha dado, y compartir generosamente con los demás todos los dones que Dios nos ha otorgado. La generosidad es un don que abre puertas a nuevas relaciones con los demás y con Dios.

July 31, 2022, Stewardship Reflection, 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Take care to guard against all greed, for though one may be rich, one's life does not consist of possessions.” Luke 12:15 The Gospel message is contrary to modern culture that continually tries to convince us that our joy comes from the material things we possess. That the more we acquire, the happier we will be. Jesus shows us that our true joy comes from our “invisible” gifts like love, mercy and forgiveness. True joy comes from “emptying” ourselves, giving of ourselves rather than always taking. We are called not to hoard but to share. True joy comes from living a grateful and generous lifestyle; become more “God-centered” and less “self-centered.”.

31 de Julio de 2022, Domingo 18o del Tiempo Ordinario

“Estén atentos y cuídense de toda forma de avaricia; porque aun cuando alguien tenga abundancia, su vida no consiste en tener bienes” Lucas 12:15 El mensaje del Evangelio es contrario a la cultura moderna que continuamente trata de convencernos de que nuestra alegría viene de los bienes materiales que poseemos. Que mientras más cosas adquirimos, más felices seremos. Jesús nos muestra que nuestra verdadera alegría viene de nuestros dones “invisibles” como el amor, la misericordia y el perdón. La verdadera alegría viene de “vaciarnos” nosotros mismos, dando de nosotros en lugar de tomar. No somos llamados a atesorar sino a compartir. La verdadera alegría viene de tener un estilo de vida agradecido y generoso; de transformarnos para estar más “centrados en Dios” y ser menos “egocéntricos”.
