Parishioners For Life—Motivating Members to Help End Abortion

Eucharistic Citizenship

“The Eucharist … spurs us on our journey through history and plants a seed of living hope in our daily commitment to the work before us. Certainly the Christian vision leads to the expectation of “new heavens” and “a new earth” (Rev 21:1), but this increases, rather than lessens, our sense of responsibility for the world today. I wish to reaffirm this forcefully at the beginning of the new millennium, so that Christians will feel more obliged than ever not to neglect their duties as citizens in this world. Theirs is the task of contributing with the light of the Gospel to the building of a more human world, a world fully in harmony with God’s plan.”

— Pope John Paul II, Ecclesia de Eucharistia, 2003

Catholic Stewardship 2016

A STEWARDSHIP MOMENT

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity: May 21st & 22nd:

In today’s Gospel Jesus talks about life with his Father and the Spirit. He tells his disciples that what belongs to the Father belongs to him, and that the Spirit will take from what is his and give it to them. Jesus helps us understand that the relationship between Father, Son and Spirit is one of perfect sharing and loving generosity. This shared life is the foundation for what we now understand as part of living life in the Trinity. The abundant generosity of those who are good stewards of the gifts entrusted to them gives us a glimpse into the love of the Triune God. Does the generosity with which we live our lives bear witness to God’s extraordinarily generous life within us?

A STEWARDSHIP PRAYER

For May….

Gracious and Loving God,

When your Spirit descended upon the apostles at Pentecost, they spoke the languages of those who came to hear their testimony. They proclaimed a new covenant in Christ Jesus, sanctified by his blood, bound by the Holy Spirit, and sealed in the waters of baptism. We give you thanks and praise for releasing your Spirit upon us; and in our time pray that it will break through the many barriers that divide nations and people. Let your Spirit open our eyes as a communion of faith to your ongoing presence among us, so we can recognize you when we serve one another. Let your Spirit open our minds so that we may gain the wisdom to work together for reconciliation and peace, and unite our talents to build a better world. And let your Spirit open our hearts so that together we can live more fully in Christ, shine his light of mercy and love and prepare for the day of his glorious return. We pray this through your son, Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.

Amen!

Reflections From Our Pope…

Weekly Reflections from Pope Francis…

May 22nd- 28th: 

“On the day of the final harvest, the judge will be Jesus. … In the end we will all be judged by the same measure with which we have judged: the mercy we have shown to others will also be shown to us. Let us ask Our Lady, our Mother, to help us grow in patience, in hope and in mercy with all brothers and sisters.”

— Pope Francis

Adopt-A-Baby

DEVELOPMENT UPDATE:

1 Month Old

Thank you for praying for me. I am one month old now. I have a heart pumping my blood and a backbone. I am very, very tiny and I appreciate your prayers!

Your spiritually adopted baby has been quite active over the past month. Already your baby is 10,000 times bigger than at conception. Your baby has developed the foundations of his brain, spinal cord, and nervous system by the 20th day. His heart began to beat on the 21st day. His heart is pumping blood through its own circulatory system and the blood type can be different from his mother.

Your baby is most vulnerable during the next month to being aborted. Pray that the Lord of Life might move the heart of his mother to give him the most precious gift of all – the gift of life!
