January 24, 2016 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time Pastors Notes: On the feast of the Holy Family, one of the cluster of feasts around Christmas, Pope Frances had this remark during one of his addresses: The true joy that's experienced in the family isn't something random or accidental. It is a joy that is the result of the deep harmony between people, who savor the beauty of being together, of supporting each other on life's journey," he said. That joy also is always rooted in "God's presence, his welcoming love, mercy and patience toward everyone. If one doesn't open the door of the family to God's presence and his love, the family loses harmony, individualism prevails and joy is extinguished," he said. My take-away from this is that it is something both important and intentional that we need to bring to our family life. That something is a God-centered Charity; caring for others and keeping God at the center of our families. Nowadays, we have so bought into the individualism of modern society that we now are seeing the negative effects of it going too far. Individualism is great when dealing with personal achievement, and in difficulty to insist on our personal and individual dignity as human persons. However, we can take it too far and obliterate the balance brought about by an under-standing that as individuals we must contribute to the common good, else we will devolve into a sick narcissism. By this I mean that we will have as our only, or even dominant point of reference the self. When we do this, we begin to ask selfish questions like Whats in it for me? This is detrimental to family life and our society. In one family I know, where every request for a contribution to the family in terms of chores is met with How much money will you pay me to do that chore? Whats in it for ME? This is not right. We need to teach our children (and adult children also need to learn) that we are responsible to each other, to help one another, to contribute without counting the cost, to be responsible to the good of family--and by extension to society and to the Kingdom of Heaven. A second negative influence that modernity has brought to our families is secularism. The goal of secularism is to remove any religious motivation or discourse from the body politic. When we opt for secularism we choose to silence the voices of the Faithful. The antidote to a God-less society is keeping God at the center of the family. This can begin in very simple ways: prayer together in the morning, at meals, at times of trouble, and in the evening before bed. Weekly Mass attendance on Sunday is directed at combating godlessness. But it goes further than that. When we discipline our children, bringing Gods moral laws (the 10 commandments, the two great commandments and the beatitudes, to name only three) into the teachable moment is a way to be God-centered. To read from scripture or some spiritual reading and discuss it briefly, every dinner time is another way to contextualize daily activity in the faith. Of course, this presumes that your family has dinner together every day. Perhaps fewer stops to grab something at the local fast-food might help with that? Or if there is a game or some other activity, planning for the WHOLE FAMILY to attend and to eat before or after would ensure the focus on family and of God. It takes planning, and it takes sacrifice--but both of these are good for the soul. When God is at the center, and charity is the goal in the family, we will keep our individualism in check by always seeking to find how we can best contribute to the common good of the family, to society and to the Kingdom of God.

Another successful year hosting men from Homeward Bound has been completed thanks to the help of many people who volunteered their time and/or donated food for the two weeks we just finished. The men are now the guests of Redlands United Methodist Church for the next 2 weeks. We want to especially thank those who volunteered to stay overnight: Robert Bray, Tim Casey, Dave Duncan, Bobbie Evans, Pete Fregetto, John Heideman, Miles LaHue, Dave Lancaster, Bart Lockhart, Kyle Lockhart, Dave Murphy, Bob Stepan, Peg Stepan, Pete Meyers, Rick Peterson, Ann Peterson, Chris Pipken, Paul Redig, Brian Sargent, Tom Sargent, Dennis Simpson, Mitch Schierland, Cliff Ulman, Zulema Valencia, Art Weber, Marv Walworth, Ken Wesolowski, John Withers, Gen Yanowich, Angie Zdunich and Mike Sewell. Another special thanks to those who prepared breakfasts and dinners: Members of the Knights of Columbus, members of the Ladies Auxiliary, Judy Campbell, Donna Mae Donohue, Jeanie MacArthur, Mary Knob, Nancy McCarroll, Barb Davis, Leslie McDonald, Shauna, Karen Sjoberg, David Wells, Joe Doak, Julia Marston, Alex Schmidt & family, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Smith, Barb Walders & family, Judy Spillane, Jane Lake, Anita Martinez & friends from St. Anns, Andrea Siegel & family, Melissa Scott, Jan & Steve Gammill, Dennis & Joan Haberkorn, and Eileen McGinnis. A great many people brought in food for the men and simply dropped it off, so we dont have their names, but thank you for this essential service. Our guests so appreciated your thoughtfulness and the bounty of food! Kudos to the three coordinators of this program: Tom Chapman Mike Sewell Patricia Amadeo. Not only did they organize, recruit and schedule, they were on hand to offer hospitality, answer questions, and sometimes to stay overnight when a scheduled volunteer couldnt come in. A big thanks to Tim Gasperini without whom nothing could have happened as he drove the van back and forth each morning and evening to Homeward Bound. This week, we will take up the Collection for the Church in Latin America. In Peru, the 14 villages of Chazuta, in Moyobamba, are all located away from the city center, with the most remote only accessible by boat. Through our help members of the Chazuta villages will feel the love and support of the universal Church. Please support programs like these and give generously. Holy Family School Bingo Dates: February 4 & 18, March 3 & 17, April 7 & 21 and May 5 & 19. Bingo starts at 6:30pm. Cost is $10. Concessions will be available. Childrens Liturgy of the Word One ministry which has been put on hold for a while is the Childrens Liturgy of the Word. With the Diocese of Pueblo rules for safe environment, we are obliged to have two adults accompany our children with their catechists if they are going to the chapel during Mass. In order for this ministry to continue, we will need at least two adults to be with the children and teachers at the 10am Mass. Would you like to make this your ministry and volunteer once a month? Please contact Jack Stuckenschneider at the parish office : 242-6121, and find out more to help establish this ministry within our parish again.
