REFLECTION ON TODAY'S READING

Let us boast of nothing but the cross of Christ.  Through it his grace and power are made known to his servants.  Tremendous deeds shall be performed in his name: the reign of God is proclaimed, peace is given as gift and the forces of sin are overcome.

Pray the Lord to Send out Laborers into His Harvest

Pray the Lord to Send out Laborers into His Harvest

What kind of harvest does the Lord Jesus want us to reap today for his kingdom of truth, light, and righteousness? When Jesus commissioned seventy of his disciples to go on mission, he gave them a vision of a vast field that is ready to be harvested for the kingdom of God. Jesus frequently used the image of a harvest to convey the coming of God's reign on earth. The harvest is the fruition of much labor and growth - beginning with the sowing of seeds, then growth to maturity, and finally the reaping of fruit for the harvest. 

 

MASS AT SAINT JOSEPH CHURCH

For those of you that are not physically able to attend mass please Join Fr. Michael as the mass is livestreamed daily and 9 a.m. Sunday Mass.
Go to: https://www.facebook.com/josephchurch.makawao/

A STEWARDSHIP MOMENT

 In today’s Gospel, we hear Jesus inviting his disciples to be evangelizers. “The harvest is abundant,” Jesus says. But those who are willing to invite others to a deeper relationship with the Lord are few. Good stewards who are willing to witness their Catholic faith to others know they are “like lambs among wolves.” They are encouraged to be gentle, patient and loving, knowing they may face rejection and even fierce opposition. Jesus invites us to be better stewards of our faith, to give positive, courageous, joyful witness to others who have turned away from their relationship with him. Is there someone we should be reaching out to this week?

DIOCESE OF HONOLULU PRAYER

FOR THE COVID-19 CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC

[by Bishop Larry Silva)

Dear God of all the living

You sent your Son Jesus to heal us from illness and sin. We turn to his healing power in this time of anxiety over the pandemic of this potentially deadly virus.
St. Damien and St. Marianne Cope dedicated their lives to service of those who had an infectious disease. St. Marianne Cope said, “I am not afraid of any disease,” because she was confident of your power to save. At the same time, she took prudent precautions of hygiene to assure that she and her Sisters would not be infected.
Let us learn from this example to put our trust in you to save us from the ravages of disease and to take prudent measures to prevent its spread. Guide us to know when to isolate ourselves from the possibility of infection, but never let anyone be left without the care and concern of others in the community.
As our Diocese of Honolulu has been dedicated to the Divine Mercy, we pray with confidence, “Jesus, I trust in you.”
