FIFTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME - July 13 & 14, 2019

REFLECTION ON TODAY'S READING:  The Great commandment of love is not something “mysterious” or “remote.”  Indeed, it is “very near” to us.  Yet how difficult it is to fulfill, being neighbor to whomever is in need.  But if we seek God, we must “go and do the same”, for we have been created in, form, and through Christ.

ST. JOSEPHS HEALING MINISTRY
    
In addition to the Anointing of the Sick, St. Joseph Church now offers a weekly Healing Ministry. This is a time set aside to bring restoration and wholeness to anyone in need of healing of body, mind, or spirit.    
IMAGO CHRISTI (in the Image of Christ) is an international healing ministry.  
Offered every Monday evening at 5:00 pm in the Church

You are invited to come and pray for healing with us. Group prayer and specific individual healing sessions are available to all.   It is the promise of Jesus that, through Him, we are "to have life and to have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10).  Mark 16:17-18 says "these signs will follow those who believe... they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover!"   This is a special time of grace for individuals, couples, and families to ask Jesus for healing for our needs and supplications.  Let the power of the Holy Spirit fill and restore us with His love!   Whether or not you are seeking personal healing, you are welcome to join our Healing Ministry Team. Please call Alda and Jim St. James for more information.  The flyer for the Healing Ministry is here.

 (Reflection Of The Gospel)

"Go and do likewise"

If God is all-loving and compassionate, then why is there so much suffering and evil in this world? Many agnostics refuse to believe in God because of this seemingly imponderable problem. If God is love then evil and suffering must be eliminated in all its forms. What is God's answer to this human dilemma? Jesus' parable about a highway robbery gives us a helpful hint. Jesus told this dramatic story in response to a devout Jew who wanted to understand how to apply God's great commandment of love to his everyday life circumstances. In so many words this religious-minded Jew said: "I want to love God as best as I can and I want to love my neighbor as well. But how do I know that I am fulfilling my duty to love my neighbor as myself?"

STEWARDSHIP
St. Joseph Church is grateful and blessed.    Last Friday, we celebrated the Ordination of Deacon Dario Rinaldi.  It was a beautiful event and was made possible by the following gifts of tithing:  
¨ TIME:
  Organizing a worship service takes time and we are very grateful for the time that the following contributed:  The Diocese of Honolulu, Dcn Modesto, Darlene Cachola, Fr. Jaime, Fr. Michael, Dcn Pat & Cora Constantino, Dcn. Dario Rinaldi, Arsie Anderson, Rochelle Alo, Christine AhPuck, Jaime Balthazar, Audrey Glassen, Jason Jacinto, Tracy Jones, Donna Pico, Helen Souza, and Steve & Laurie Rinaldi who planned such a memorable event.  
¨ TALENT:  The liturgical music for the ordination was in tune!  The Choir, composed of members from Christ the King, St. Anthony, and St. Joseph Church did a wonderful job.  Thank you for sharing your God given talent.  
¨ TREASURE:  We would like to thank the following community members for their generosity that they contributed to the Ordination:  Any Kine Sounds for the Videography and Sound Systems, Hawaii Express Moving for the toilets, Service Rentals for the light towers, Malcolm & Val Aguirre for the chairs, The Social Ministry, NEO Catechumenal Way, Alo & Jones Ohana for the water,  and the Diocese of Honolulu for the food and leis.

 *******************************************************************************************  
A STEWARDSHIP MOMENT:
  Today’s Gospel turns our attention to one of Jesus’ most familiar stories, the Parable of the Good Samaritan.  It is about living how God intended us to live: to acknowledge God’s divine love and compassion lavished upon us, and to extend that love and compassion upon others without reservation. We can find a lot of reasons for not stopping to help someone. We can talk ourselves out of being Good Samaritans. Strangers are not our responsibility, or are they? Good stewards understand that God’s mercy is a gift that must be shared, and that doing the right thing, acting as Jesus would act toward others,  is the only course of action for one who lives according to the demands of the Gospel. How might you be a Good Samaritan this week?
 *******************************************************************************************  
SECOND COLLECTION FOR THE SEMINARIAN EDUCATION FUND—Seminary education for our future priests can last up to eight years and include not only academic, spiritual and pastoral formation, but personal formation as well.  This comprehensive education is needed to help produce priest who are committed, prayerful, joyful, and generous in ministering to God’s people.  Please consider making a gift to the 2019 special collection to provide the best education and formation possible for these men.  Your gift will help in ways that are simply immeasurable!

What is RCIA?  RCIA which stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a process through which non-baptized men and women enter the Catholic Church. (It is also for those baptized in a different faith tradition who wish to become Catholic, or baptized Catholic and would like a refresher course, or baptized Catholic but never confirmed) It includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass. Participants in the RCIA are known as catechumens. They undergo a process of conversion as they study the Gospel, profess faith in Jesus and the Catholic Church, and receive the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Holy Eucharist.  If you know someone who might be interested in learning more about the Catholic faith please contact Chris AhPuck 463-1585.
