Fr. Tom Mahalo AlohaFr. Tom

My dear parishioners and friends:

By now you might have heard that I am retiring as of July1. Bishop Larry has appointed my successor. God’s blessings on him and all of you.

The ongoing struggle with my cancer forced me to ask for early retirement. The various treatments so far have not cured the illness. It is only because of your prayers and support I have lived so far. In August 2019, when my cancer was detected, the prognosis was four months of life. But I have outlived the prognosis by two years. I am convinced it is due to your and other people’s prayers.

On June 29 I am leaving for San Francisco. My close friend Fr. Paulson has invited me to stay with him at the Rectory of Christ the King Catholic Church in Pleasant Hill, CA. With the help of Dr. Melvin Palalay (my Oncologist) I am looking for possibilities of treatment in the Bay Area. So please continue to keep me in your prayers. I am not ready to give up yet!

I consider it a great privilege to have been able to minister to you in the past several years. Let us keep each other in our prayers.

My new address:

Rev Thomas P Joseph
Phone:(808) 388-9032

The Wonders of God’s Kingdom

Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time - Sunday, June 13, 2021

Jesus said to the crowds: “This is how it is with the kingdom of God; it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land and would sleep and rise night and day and through it all the seed would sprout and grow, he knows not how.” Mark 4:26–27

The mystery of the Ascension dazzles us. If we understand the Ascension, the most abundant treasure of Jesus' gifts will be given to us. His body, no longer physical but spiritual, penetrates the heavens and is present in the Eucharist. He gives Himself to all those who wish to receive and embrace Him. In a hidden way, He is transforming all.

God's love is continually divinizing our humanity. Our life of divine love places an obligation on us to love our bodies properly. They constitute part of us as a human person and will share in eternal happiness. We as Christians must love our bodies as living images of our incarnate Savior. We must also love this divine image in each other.

When we begin to live a life “hidden in God with Jesus Christ,” we live out of our true interior self. We live a new life of divine love. Our selfish loves are in the service of divine love. How did we achieve this? Strong sunlight causes the light of the stars to disappear. Similarly, when we set up a stronger affection for imperishable, eternal things, we extinguish our inordinate love of ephemeral things. The stronger more powerful fire of God's love extinguishes our excessive love of lesser things.

Jesus' Resurrection-Ascension empowers us to live this new life of holy love that is contrary to all the opinions and rules of our materialistically oriented culture. Christ's love is the wellspring of our love. Nothing urges on a person's heart so much as love. Let us walk joyously among the difficulties of this passing life, since all is perfected and brought to perfection in the eternal beatitude of Heaven. Then Our Savior will glorify us with His splendor, for we loved all things, not for ourselves, but for the glory of God.

The COVID-19 virus forces us and our parishioners to grapple with a difficult reality. Amid self-isolation and "stay-at-home" orders, an increasing number of people are experiencing sickness and death separated from other people.

Liturgical Press

Liturgical Press (Collegeville, MN) has posted more free resources in their website that relate to healing and grief.

Website link:

Praying Together, Praying Apart: At-Home Prayers for Times of Healing, Illness, and Death is a new resource available for free download in their website and at the link below for praying in times of healing, illness and death.

Praying together, praying apart printable pdf

  • Part I: Prayers of Comfort, Hope, and Healing: These texts can be prayed by individuals, families, or other groups

  • Part II: Lucernarium for Healing: Lucernarium, or "service of light," grows out of the tradition in the early church of lighting lamps for evening prayer. This celebration of light rejoices in Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, the Light no darkness can overcome.

  • Part III: Rosary for Healing with Luke the Evangelist: The rosary is a prayer pathway that invites us to meditate on significant events in Jesus' life. The Rosary for Healing with Luke the Evangelist focuses on the healing mission and ministry of Jesus Christ, allowing us to enter more fully into the healing experiences within Luke's Gospel. Begin each decade by reading the corresponding Scripture passage.

  • Part IV: At-Home Service of Prayer when Someone Has Died: One of the realities of social distancing is the inability to gather as a community for wakes, funerals, and other memorial services when someone has died. This service of prayer is intended to give people a way to pray in their own homes as they grieve the loss of a loved one.
