2 2 FROM THE PASTOR S DESK DEL ESCRITORIO DEL PASTOR The World in View from a Believer s Perspective H ere s a gem of a photo from the 2nd Annual Holy Cross Family Camp this past July near Mormon Lake. I asked for a Cheeto and she did not hesitate to share with me a handful. Such lessons are learned at home. I suspect her happy display of generosity was the fruit of her family experience where the needs of another come before the wants of the self. I chose this image in the hope of illustrating how the Church in every time, in order for it to grow, and bring the good news of Jesus Christ to every soul has come at the cost of the personal sacrifice, and in not a few cases, even unto the shedding of blood. The rule of salvation is clear: without sacrifice, there is no redemption, this is true for the mass just as it is true for the works of mercy within the Church. Today you are receiving an invitation to sacrifice for Jesus Church not the Bishop s Church. Not my Church. It s JESUS Church! We may not live to see full flourishing of the numerous works of mercy of this Campaign at the Diocesan and Parish levels. But what is important is that we reach into that little bag where the heart beats and see if there is anything there that can be offered to our Lord. Remember, we can t take what s left in the bag after we die. The bag stays down here. However, our charitable efforts as well as our omissions will follow us. Years ago, I had a good spiritual mentor, an Irish priest by the name of Fr. Eamon Kelly who left me with much food for thought one day when he said, No good act of ours will escape God s notice. That s why I try to not pass up an opportunity to do some good in the name of God at each moment. Well, my friends, this is our moment. Your Pastor, Fr. Larry El Mundo que se ve desde la perspectiva de un creyente E sta es una joya de fotografía que tom-ė en el Segundo Campamento Anual de la Familia de la Santa Cruz este pasado mes de julio cerca del Lago Mormón. Yo le pedí un Cheeto y ella no dudó en compartir conmigo una puñada. Esas lecciones se aprenden en casa. Sospecho que su feliz demostración de generosidad es el fruto de la experiencia en su familia, donde las necesidades de otro van antes que los deseos de uno mismo. Escogí esta imagen con la esperanza de ilustrar cómo la Iglesia en todo momento, para poder crecer y llevar la buena nueva de Jesucristo a cada alma, lo ha hecho al costo del sacrificio personal, y, no en pocas ocasiones, aun al costo del derramamiento de sangre. La regla de salvación es clara: sin sacrificio no hay redención, y esto aplica tanto a la misa como a las obras de misericordia dentro de la Iglesia. Este día, ustedes están recibiendo una invitación para sacrificarse por la Iglesia de Jesús no la Iglesia del Obispo, ni mi Iglesia. Sino la Iglesia de Jesús! Puede ser que no vivamos para ver el florecimiento completo de las numerosas obras de misericordia de esta Campaña a nivel diocesano y parroquial. Pero lo que es importante es que busquemos dentro de esa bolsita donde late el corazón y veamos si hay algo allí que podemos ofrecer a nuestro Señor. Recuerden, no podemos llevarnos lo que haya quedado en la bolsa cuando muramos. La bolsa se queda aquí abajo. Sin embargo, nuestros esfuerzos caritativos, al igual que nuestras omisiones, nos seguirán. Hace años, yo tuve un buen mentor espiritual, un sacerdote irlandés llamado Padre Eamon Kelly, quien me heredó mucho en quė pensar cuando un día me dijo, Ninguna buena obra de nosotros escapará a la vista de Dios. Por eso trato de no dejar pasar una oportunidad de hacer algo bueno en nombre de Dios a cada momento. Bueno, mis amigos, este es nuestro momento. Su Pastor, Padre Lorenzo

Do not miss this opportunity to serve and share what God has given you; you have obtained a unique gift of knowledge which God wants you to use for His glory.

7 RELIGIOUS EDUCATION: ADULT FAITH FORMATION AND SPIRITUALITY Adult Faith Formation Self Guided Advent Retreat Starts this Week, Evening Sessions Available too! When praying we often feel as if we re talking to ourselves, or to no one at all. How can something so vital to our Faith be so elusive? Using Lectio Divina we can make prayer an effective effort of love and intimacy with God. Prayer: Finding Intimacy with God captures the secret to opening our hearts and minds to Scripture as the means to hear from God and then respond in conversation, basking in His presence and resolving to live in and through his love.

8 8 Journeying through Grief PARISH & COMMUNITY EVENTS No two grief journeys are alike; all grief journeys are different. Two individuals grieving the same person, such as a wife grieving the loss of her husband and a daughter grieving the loss of her father (same person), will often experience entirely different journeys based upon their own relationships with the deceased. In addition, a person who has grieved the loss of two or more loved ones will find that each journey was different from the others again based upon each unique relationship. It is not unusual for a person to grieve the loss of one loved one more than the loss of another. It is important to remember this point that all grief journeys are different and not make comparisons as a person might think something is wrong because his/her journey is longer or shorter, more stressful or less stressful, or more complicated or less complicated than another person s journey or the journey traveled for a previous loss. Each journey through grief is as unique as the person who is experiencing it. In support group meetings, those who share their stories will often find similarities with others stories and will note how their journeys are different. Within the support group, there is affirmation for all journeys without judgment or comparison. If you are on the grief journey, we invite you to attend the Holy Cross support group meetings to be affirmed and supported as you make your way back to life. Our next meeting is Wednesday, November 7, 10:30 a.m. in classroom D at Holy Cross. We look forward to meeting and supporting you. Palm Sunday Chorus Oh come, let us sing to the Lord. Psalm 95:1. If you enjoy singing and have sung with a choral group before, we would love to have you join our Palm Sunday Chorus as we make a joyful noise to proclaim the scriptures. Holy Cross musicians will be performing in English The Passion and Resurrection of the Lord According to Mark, a musical setting of the scriptures composed by parishioner Evelyn Sanchez, on Palm Sunday, April 14, If you are interested, you may sign up after Mass the weekend of November or contact Evelyn at or Chorus rehearsals are scheduled for most Monday evenings from 6:15-7:30 p.m. starting Monday, November 26 th in Anderson Hall.
