Bollettino Settimanale
Messa in Italiano ogni Domenica alle 11:30am (Chiesa di giu’)
Riflessione del mese di luglio
1. Quei difetti, nostro od altrui, che non riusciamo a
correggere, li dobbiamo sopportare con pazienza, fino a che
Dio non disponga altrimenti. Rifletti che, per avventura,
questa sopportazione è la cosa più utile per te, come prova
di quella pazienza, senza della quale ben poco contano i
nostri meriti. Tuttavia, di fronte a tali difficoltà, devi chiedere
insistentemente che Dio si degni di venirti in aiuto e che tu
riesca a sopportarle lietamente. Se uno, ammonito una volta
e un'altra ancora, non si acquieta, cessa di litigare con lui;
rimetti invece ogni cosa in Dio, affinché in tutti noi, suoi servi,
si faccia la volontà e la gloria di Lui, che ben sa trasformare il
male in bene. Sforzati di essere paziente nel tollerare i difetti
e le debolezze altrui, qualunque essi siano, giacché anche
tu presenti molte cose che altri debbono sopportare.
2. Se non riesci a trasformare te stesso secondo quella
che pure è la tua volontà, come potrai pretendere che gli altri
si conformino al tuo desiderio? Vogliamo che gli altri siano
perfetti; mentre noi non correggiamo le nostre
manchevolezze. Vogliamo che gli altri si correggano
rigorosamente; mentre noi non sappiamo correggere noi
stessi. Ci disturba una ampia libertà degli altri; mentre non
sappiamo negare a noi stessi ciò che desideriamo.
Vogliamo che gli altri siano stretti entro certe regole; mentre
noi non ammettiamo di essere un po' più frenati. In tal modo,
dunque, è chiaro che raramente misuriamo il prossimo
come noi stessi. Se fossimo tutti perfetti, che cosa avremmo
da patire dagli altri, per amore di Dio? Ora, Dio così dispone,
affinché apprendessimo a portare l'uno i pesi dell'altro (Gal 6,2).
Infatti non c'è alcuno che non presenti difetti o molestie; non c'è
alcuno che basti a se stesso e che, di per sé, sia
sufficientemente saggio. Occorre, dunque, che ci sopportiamo
a vicenda, che a vicenda ci consoliamo, che egualmente ci
aiutiamo e ci ammoniamo. Quanta virtù ciascuno di noi abbia,
ciò appare al momento delle avversità: non sono le occasioni
che fanno fragile l'uomo, ma esse mostrano quale esso è.
PADRE PIO DA PIETRELCINA – nelle prossime settimane
sarà elencato il programma della giornata della nostra chiesa in
onore di San Padre Pio.
ricordare la data di mercoledì, 22 settembre–spettacolo
teatrale – Million Dollar Quartet - Cena prima dello
spettacolo. L’autobus parte da Sant’Atanasio. Seguiranno
informazioni dettagliate.
(Benedetto XVI)
O Padre, fa' sorgere fra i cristiani numerose e sante
vocazioni al sacerdozio, che mantengano viva la fede e
custodiscano la grata memoria del tuo Figlio Gesù
mediante la predicazione della sua parola e
l'amministrazione dei Sacramenti, con i quali tu rinnovi
continuamente i tuoi fedeli.
Donaci santi ministri del tuo altare,
che siano attenti e fervorosi custodi dell'Eucaristia,
sacramento del dono supremo di Cristo
per la redenzione del mondo.
Chiama ministri della tua misericordia,
che, mediante il sacramento della Riconciliazione,
diffondano la gioia del tuo perdono.
Fa', o Padre, che la Chiesa accolga con gioia
le numerose ispirazioni dello Spirito del Figlio tuo
e, docile ai suoi insegnamenti,
si curi delle vocazioni al ministero sacerdotale
e alla vita consacrata.
Sostieni i Vescovi, i sacerdoti, i diaconi,
i consacrati e tutti i battezzati in Cristo,
affinché adempiano fedelmente la loro missione
al servizio del Vangelo.
Te lo chiediamo per Cristo nostro Signore. Amen.
Maria, Regina degli Apostoli, prega per noi!

El projimo es quien debe ser merecedor de ese
amor incondicional , sin importar quien , estamos
llamados a ser como el Samaritano . Hoy dia las
adversidades se encuentran a la vuelta de la esquina y es ahi donde debemos poner en practica
la misericordia del Samaritano , nunca se ajenos
a la realidad de nuestro alreedor , hoy ayudaras a
quien lo necesite , mañana podrias ser tu quien
necesite de ese samaritano y asi se reflejara el
mandamiento de Amarnos unos a otros como
Dios nos ama.
“Padre Celestial, en tu hijo se ve la plenitud del
amor, la majestad y la Santidad. El es ciertamente
digno de alabanza y adoración . Te doy gracias ,
señor por haberme rescatado aunque no lo
merecía . Hoy y siempre estare agradecido por la
extraordinaria muestra de misericordia y gracia
que me haz dado”

Jesus tell us the parable of the Samaritan who showed mercy to a
stranger who had been robbed ,
beaten , and left by the side of the
road . The Samaritan bandaged his
wounds , took him to a hotel, and paid
for someone to care for him.

DEUTERONOMIO 30,10-14 SALMO 69 14.17.3031-37
COLOSENSES 1,15-20 LUCAS 10,25-37
“ Cuál de estos tres te parece que se porto como
projimo del hombre que fue asaltado por los
ladrones ? El doctor le respondio : el que tuvo
compasión de El , Entonces Jesus le dijo , anda y
haz tu lo mismo”
Procurando seguir la misión Evangelizadora , Dios
nos llama una vez mas , como lo ha hecho en
domingos anteriores , a través de estos evangelios vocacionales. Por que lo llamamos vocacionales? La razon es por que todos de alguna
manera estamos siendo llamados a una misión
Evangelizadora , llena de amor y entrega a
nuestro projimo .
La primera Lectura nos cuenta acerca de los
mandamientos y como Moises promulga esta noticia entre el Pueblo , ya desde la antiguedad teniamos conocimientos de a que estabamos siendo
llamados , y la segunda lectura nos muestra el culmen de esta misión , todo resumido en una sola
palabra; El amor .
Amor por nuestro projimo , amor por nosotros
mismos . Amarnos los unos a los otros como
Cristo nos ha amado , y la prueba de ese amor
esta en la Cruz.
Mercy showers have compassion for
people who are less fortunate than others, those
who are hurting or have physical problems .
Mercy showers good listeners. They comfort
other people and share their sorrows and joys .
