Stewardship Reflection, June 2, 2024, Feast of Corpus Christi

”Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them and they all drank from it.” - Mark 14:23

Jesus, the perfect steward, gave thanks, just before He gave Himself up for us, completely for our salvation. He offers us the same chance to drink from His cup. In the bread and wine, we meet Christ personally. If we follow Him, drinking from His cup means we offer our own self-sacrifice, using all of our gifts for the benefit of others and to do His work on earth.

2 de junio de 2024, Fiesta de Corpus Christi

“Y tomando una copa, después de dar gracias, se la dio a ellos, y todos bebieron de ella.” - Marcos 14:23

Jesús, el perfecto administrador, dio gracias, justo antes de entregarse a Sí mismo por nosotros, por nuestra completa salvación. Él nos ofrece la misma oportunidad de beber de Su copa. En el pan y el vino, nos encontramos personalmente con Cristo. Si lo seguimos, tomar de Su copa significa que ofrecemos nuestro propio sacrificio, utilizando todos nuestros dones para beneficio de los demás y para hacer Sus obras en la tierra.

Stewardship Reflection. June 9, 2024, 10th Sunday in Ordinary Time

”If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.” Mark 3:24

Within your parish community, do your ministries collaborate with each other or do they compete against each other? Do your parish ministries work for the greater glory of God or do they work for the glory of the people running them? The primary goal of parish ministry is not to increase Mass attendance, increase the number of volunteers or increase offertory. The primary goal is to be one Body of Christ that helps people take one step closer to Jesus. If it's not doing that, it's not worth doing.

9 de junio de 2024, 10o Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

”Si un Reino está dividido contra sí mismo, ese reino no puede perdurar.” Marcos 3:24

¿Dentro de su comunidad parroquial, los ministerios colaboran entre sí o compiten unos contra otros? ¿Los ministerios de su parroquia trabajan para la mayor gloria de Dios o trabajan para la gloria de las personas que los dirigen? La meta principal de un ministerio parroquial no es incrementar la asistencia a la Misa, o aumentar el número de voluntarios o las ofrendas. La meta principal es ser uno en el Cuerpo de Cristo que ayude a la gente a estar un paso más cerca de Jesús. Si no lo está haciendo así, entonces no vale nada.

Stewardship Reflection, June 16, 2024, 11th Sunday in Ordinary Time

”For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive recompense, according to what he did in the body, whether good or evil.” - 2 Corinthians 5:10

We are all accountable for all of the gifts God has given us -- our time, our talent and our treasure; everything we have and everything we are. Each of us is accountable not only for our own life but for the lives of others as well. One day God will ask each of us what did we do with the gifts we were given. How will you respond?

16 de junio de 2024, 11o Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

“Porque todos nosotros debemos comparecer ante el tribunal de Cristo, para que cada uno sea recompensado por sus hechos estando en el cuerpo, de acuerdo con lo que hizo, sea bueno o sea malo.” - 2 Corintios 5:10

Todos debemos responder por todos los dones que hemos recibido de Dios- nuestro tiempo, nuestro talento y nuestros tesoros; todo lo que tenemos y todo lo que somos. Cada uno de nosotros es responsable no solo de nuestra propia vida sino también de las vidas de otros. Un día Dios nos preguntará a cada uno de nosotros lo que hicimos con los dones que recibimos. ¿Cόmo responderá usted?

Stewardship Reflection, June 23, 2024, 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

”Then he asked them, 'Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith?'” -- Mark 4:40

Do you really trust God? Is God your first choice or last resort? Is your faith something you just do on Sunday or do you live the Gospel message every day of the week? Many of us know about God. How many of us have a personal relationship with Him? Start now, open your heart to receive our Lord. Talk and listen to Him every day. Move your discipleship from head knowledge to heart knowledge.

23 de junio de 2024, 12o Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

“Entonces Él les preguntó, ¿Por qué están tan asustados? ¿Todavía no tienen fe?” - Marcos 4:40

¿Realmente confía en Dios? ¿Es Dios su primera opción o su último recurso? ¿Su fe es algo que solo practica los Domingos o vive el mensaje del Evangelio cada día de la semana? Muchos de nosotros conocemos acerca de Dios. ¿Cuántos de nosotros tenemos una relación personal con Él? Comience ahora, abra su corazón para recibir al Señor. Hable con Él y escúchelo cada día. Mude su discipulado de conocimiento de la cabeza a conocimiento del corazón.

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.

Praying Like the Ancient Fathers - Men's and Women's Retreat

Join Father Juan Puigbó, Pastor of St. Leo the Great Parish, for a unique men's and women's silent retreat. The first Christians faced many challenges from political and spiritual adversaries. The needs of the early Church were very pressing, but Christians learned very soon to trust in the Lord Jesus, their Savior. They took the Gospel so very much to heart that they surrendered their lives to Christ by dying as martyrs or by fleeing to the desert as monastics. Either way, their strong relationship with the living God made them giants of Christian spirituality--an excellent example for us in today's troubled world. This silent retreat begins at 5 p.m. on Friday, June 21, and ends at 1 p.m. on Sunday, June 23. Retreat cost is $285 per person. For further information or to register, please contact Deacon Mark Maines at mark.maines@arlingtondiocese.org,

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

Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi have fascinated the world for centuries. How can active men and women in the world draw nearer to Our Lord by learning from their Wisdom, imitating their charity, and finding little ways to embrace their poverty? Join Father John Riley and a small band of brothers and sisters at the Arlington Diocese's San Damiano Retreat Center in White Post, VA as we gather in a silent retreat at the feet of Jesus to consider how to follow Francis and Clare to Christ; in His Crib... and on His Cross. 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.
