THE ASCENSION OF THE LORD  -May 12th & 13th

REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READING: Jesus commissions his disciples to baptize in his name, reminding them that he is always present, through his Spirit.  Having ascended to his Father amid cries of gladness, we are to be his witnesses for we have been gifted with his Spirit of wisdom and revelation.  Let us, therefore, live in a manner worthy of the call we have received.

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 5:30 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.

 A STEWARDSHIP MOMENT   Jesus calls his disciples his “friends” and commands them to love one other as he has loved them. We are called to be stewards of this friendship; to love one another as Jesus loves us. Do we give serious attention to what this love requires of us? Does this require us to actively seek the welfare of others? What is the price of this friendship with the Lord?    

 

 

 (Reflection on Sunday Gospel)

"The Lord Jesus was taken up into heaven"

Why did Jesus leave his disciples forty days after his resurrection? Forty is a significant number in the scriptures. Moses went to the mountain to seek the face of God for forty days in prayer and fasting. The people of Israel were in the wilderness for forty years in preparation for their entry into the promised land. Elijah fasted for forty days as he journeyed in the wilderness to the mountain of God. For forty days after his resurrection Jesus appeared numerous times to his disciples to assure them that he had risen indeed and to prepare them for the task of carrying on the work which he began during his earthy ministry.       

******************************************************************************************* 

Wishing all Mother’s a very Happy Mother’s Day!  May God Bless you on this special day.  A Mother’s Love is Forever.

SJC MULTIPURPOSE CENTER   If your parish celebrates the Mass for the First Scrutiny for catechumens preparing for Baptism at the Easter vigil, you may hear the Gospel story of Jesus speaking with the Samaritan woman at the well; someone who supposedly is of the wrong gender, wrong religion, and has lived the wrong life. The woman is overwhelmed by guilt and shame. And yet Jesus speaks to her and offers her “living waters” to quench her spiritual thirst. The living water that Jesus gives is new life through the Holy Spirit; a life that is accepted, forgiven, loved and eternal. Good stewards of their life in Christ remain mindful of their own spiritual thirst. They listen to Jesus who speaks to them just as he spoke with the Samaritan woman at the well. Jesus has living water for us today. He encourages us to come and drink. Are you thirsty? Are you ready to listen to him?

What Easter Means to Me
Pray for our Keiki before the #BigPentecost
Diocese of Honolulu, Questions? Kdeneve@rcchawaii.org Oahu    

   This Pentecost, half our parishes will enact the Original Order.  900+ children will receive their final two sacraments of initiation in the “original” order and another 2700+ will be confirmed. 
Not one of these keiki, parents, family, and/or parishes involved with Big Pentecost?!  Well, we still need your prayers!  
Please pray for those who are to be confirmed by using part of the High Priestly Prayer Jesus himself used:  “I revealed your name to those whom you gave me out of the world.
They belonged to you, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for the ones you have given me, because they are yours. And now I will no longer be in the world, but they are in the world, while I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one just as we are. I gave them your word, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. I do not ask that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from the evil one.  
Consecrate them in the truth. Your word is truth.  As you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world.  I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me through their word. “  

We pray this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen John 17: 6, 9, 11, 14-18, 20.
