2/5/23 - You're the Salt & Light of the World - Cycle A

Dear Families,

In this week’s Gospel, Jesus continues his Sermon on the Mount.  He compares our lives to salt and light, things we need and use every day in our daily lives.  When we taste food that is not salted it tastes bland, add the right amount of salt and its tastes good.  When we enter a dark space and there is no light we cannot see where we are going, turn on the light or a lamp and you can see where you are going.

 

Jesus wants us to bring the right amount of salt to the earth with the goodness and truth that he gives us.  Jesus wants us to be God’s light to the world by being kind and merciful with everyone.  Jesus teaches us that we are to be the salt of the earth and the light to the world.  We need to share his love with everyone.

 

As a family watch video in its entirety and then ask each other this question.
Why do you think Jesus compares his followers to salt and light?

 

Family Prayer:  Jesus, knowing that you love us makes a big difference in our lives. 
Help us show others your love.  Amen.

February 5, 2023- 4th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

   "You are the salt of the earth" (Mt 5:13). This statement we have heard so many times in our lives, and what a way for Jesus to make our life a parable, expressed in so few words yet speaking volumes if we ask a cook about what salt is to food industry.

     Jesus invites us to contemplate our human life, comparing it to the function and utility, serviceability, its value and other qualities that can be ascribed to salt. It is all about: purpose, nature, goal, function, essence, destiny, role, that our life plays in the life of the world, and in the life of other people.

     What does the salt do? It gives taste, sharpens it, exalts the taste of food. Salt preserves and conserves food. Salt has healing qualities; it cleans and disinfects. Salt absorbs humidity, too much of it may be toxic. Its amount in water may kill life as it is in Dead Sea. Its amount in the water of Dead Sea makes it easy to swim in it or rather float on its surface.

     What is the secret of the salt? What is the best way to use it and to get the maximum of what salt can give? It is in the right usage, right balance, that the salt gives its best to the user and so fulfilling the purpose for which it is sought and used.

2/5/23 -  QUINTO DOMINGO DE TIEMPO ORDINARIO

Queridas Hermanas y Hermanos,

   “Ustedes son la sal de la tierra” Mt 5,13. Esta afirmación la hemos escuchado tantas veces en nuestras vidas, y qué manera de Jesús de hacer de nuestra vida una parábola, expresada en tan pocas palabras, pero hablando mucho si le preguntamos a un cocinero qué es la sal para la industria alimentaria.

     Jesús nos invita a contemplar nuestra vida humana, comparándola con la función, la utilidad, su valor y demás cualidades que se le pueden atribuir a la sal. Se trata de: propósito, naturaleza, meta, función, esencia, destino, papel que nuestra vida juega en la vida del mundo y en la vida de otras personas.

     ¿Qué hace la sal? Da sabor, lo agudiza, exalta el sabor de la comida. La sal conserva los alimentos. La sal tiene cualidades curativas; limpia y desinfecta. La sal absorbe la humedad, demasiada puede ser tóxica. Su cantidad en el agua puede matar la vida como en el Mar Muerto. Su cantidad en el agua del Mar Muerto facilita nadar en ella o más bien flotar en su superficie.

     ¿Cuál es el secreto de la sal? ¿Cuál es la mejor forma de utilizarla y aprovechar al máximo lo que puede dar la sal? Es en el uso correcto, el equilibrio correcto, que la sal da lo mejor al usuario y así cumple el propósito para el que se busca y se utiliza.

Background Screening Update

The Office for the Protection of Children and Young People:

The Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People (The Charter) promulgated by the Bishops of the United States in 2002 outlines specific practices and guidelines providing standards of safety in parishes and dioceses throughout the United States. As directed in The Charter, the Diocese of Rockville Centre requires all employees, clergy, and volunteers to complete three requirements within thirty days of employment or volunteering:

  1. Attend Protecting God’s Children Program (Virtus)
  2. Sign the Codes of Conduct;
  3. Complete a background screen application. The Diocese requires all those who remain in active ministry be rescreened at 5 yr. intervals. volunteers/employees.

 

The 'Equality Act' discriminates against people of faith and threatens unborn life.

Tell Congress you oppose it!
 
Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. The so-called Equality Act, which is being voted on in the U.S. House of Representatives soon, in many ways does the opposite and needs to be opposed. Instead of respecting differences in beliefs about marriage and sexuality, the Equality Act would discriminate against people of faith. 
 
The Equality Act would: punish faith-based organizations, such as charities and schools who serve everyone in their communities, simply because of their beliefs; force girls and women to compete against boys and men for limited opportunities in sports, and to share locker rooms and shower spaces with biological males who identify as women; risk mandating taxpayers to fund abortions; force people in everyday life, and especially health care workers, to support gender transition; and expand what the government considers a “public” place, forcing even some parish halls to host functions that conflict with Catholic beliefs.
