25th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Sept. 20, 2015

Greetings, to all! Last weekend was the Jazz Festival and we had our fund raising, it was great to see the St. Catherine’s parishioners participating at the event and helping out. If you have a chance to assist next year I think you will find it wonderful and lots of fun meeting visitors as well as able to know some of the parishioner. Thanks, for all who have volunteered monitoring and making sure the rest room was clean and well supplied with toiletries.
In one of the “Peanuts” Comic Strip, Charlie Brown worries about his chronic, lifelong sense of low self-esteem. He says to Linus, “It goes all the way back to the beginning. The moment I was born and stepped on the stage of history, they took one look at me and said, ‘Not right for the part!'”
Unfortunately, many of us can identify with our friends Linus and Charlie Brown. We forget that God looks at us and says, “You are right for the part, and no one else can replace you. You are unique. No matter what your faults may be you are special. You are you, and no one else can fill that role. And I love the you I have created — in My own image!”
Peace and blessings!
Fr. Luis

“Behold, God is my helper; the Lord sustains my life.”
Today’s readings have several themes, including that of trusting God even when our lives are threatened. In today’s Gospel Jesus speaks again of His passion, death and resurrection, and He teaches us to be the servant of others.
As we sing the hymns today, let us reflect on what it really means to choose the cross, to trust God in all circumstances, and to seek wisdom and righteousness.
Songs for the 9 am Mass:
Gathering Song: Glory in the Cross # 724
Gloria in excelsis Deo, gloria, gloria!
Gloria in excelsis Deo, et in terra, terra pax.
Additional words to the Gloria are found in your Breaking Bread hymnal, p. 6.
Psalm 54: The Lord upholds my life.
Intercessions: O God, hear us, hear our prayer.
Preparation of Gifts: How Can I Keep From Singing? # 441
Communion: Shelter Me, O God # 474
Recessional: We Are Called # 630
