Life of Charity, The Way of The Disciple

There are mixed up or unclearness in the term “Messiah” as “the Anointed One.” Most of the Jews thought of him as a powerful, conquering leader who would set his people free from their oppressors, the way James and John perceived what the Lord was that they asked him for a throne on His left and right when He fulfills all the messianic task on earth. A small minority, instead, believed on the idea that the Messiah would save his people by taking upon himself the enslavement of sin which oppressed them and all mankind, in many ways the Lord was, but not losing His innocence and his faultlessness. The Messiah portrayed through dramatic scenes in the four Isaiah passages known as “The Songs of the Servant of the Lord.” The idea of glory and triumph is also included in the fourth Song, but His comes only at the end, and after the cruel suffering humbly endured by Him in atonement for the sins of all mankind, a scripture that is unclear and even hard to accept except for Christ Himself. This Sunday, Jesus demonstrates the three marks of discipleship, not rooted in association, but by service. First, the openness of oneself in fulfilling the master’s will. Second is willingness of the disciple not to gain reward from the master, but to take joy in serving others the way the master had demonstrates. The third is to obey the master in his command. The disciple is worthless if he doesn’t know the will of his master. We are challenges by the readings of this Sunday to take up the cause of discipleship in Jesus, not counting the cost, but delighting to be identified belonging to Him - Fr. Norlito



Additional Mass

On October 28th, Thursday the Feast Day of Saints Simon and Jude, Apostles, there will be two (2) masses at 7:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Before the 6:30 p.m. mass there will be adoration and confession (crying room) starting at 5:30 p.m. The Diocesan Taskforce Team will be helping and singing at the 6:30 p.m. mass

These are two Apostles that we know little about but they were called by Jesus. Jude is also called Thaddeus. According to tradition, both were martyrs and Jude has become the saint of the impossible! We pray to Jude for hopeless cases

Devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Blessed Virgin Mary

Anyone is currently doing devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus or the Blessed Virgin Mary would you please call the parish office. Fr. Norlito is interested in knowing how many people are doing these devotions. Thank you.

Reflection:

Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is truly devotion to the Divine Mercy of God. This is why images of the Divine Mercy reveal blood and water flowing from His Sacred Heart. Likewise, devotion to the Immaculate Heart reveals how Mary the Mother of God is also the Mother of Mercy and that her heart is perfectly united to the merciful mission of her Divine Son. As the New Adam and New Eve, the hearts of Jesus and Mary reveal the redemptive love of God for each of us. This is why God is intent in inspire devotion to the Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary. This is why the message of the Immaculate Heart stands at the center of the messages of Our Lady of Fatima. When Christ was crucified and the spear pierced his Sacred Heart on the cross, so also a sword pierced Mary’s Immaculate Heart. This twin piercing is the hope of all Christians in the last ages.

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque is the patron saint of devotees of the Sacred Heart, and those suffering with polio and from the loss of parents. Her feast day is celebrated on October 16. St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, a French Roman Catholic Visitation nun and mystic, is greatly recognized for her devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. St. Margaret Mary was chosen by Christ to arouse the Church to a realization of the love of God symbolized by the heart of Jesus. Her early years were marked by sickness and a painful home situation. “The heaviest of my crosses was that I could do nothing to lighten the cross my mother was suffering.”

 

St. Teresa of Ávila

St. Teresa of Ávila was a Spanish Carmelite nun who lived in the 1500s. She was a mystic and author of spiritual writings and poems. She founded numerous convents throughout Spain and was the originator of the Carmelite Reform that restored a contemplative and austere life to the order. St. Teresa of Avila spent a great deal of time in solitude contemplating in the name of God. As an author, she is considered one of the foremost writers on mental prayer, a form of prayer whereby one loves God through dialogue and meditating on God's words.

covid prayer

Prayer for the
COVID-19 CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC

Written 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 the service of those who had an infectious disease. St. Marianne Cope said, “I am not afraid of any disease,” because she was confident in 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.

Saint Damien, pray for us!

Saint Marianne, pray for us! --- Amen.

Our Stewardship Prayer

Generous and Loving Creator, you have called us to M lama i ka Makana (Cherish the Gift). As disciples of your Son, we ask that your Spirit open our minds and hearts to more deeply appreciate your countless blessings. Increase your transforming spirit within us, so as to nurture our call to stewardship as a way of life marked always by faithfilled prayer, service to others and generous giving. With the kokua of St. Marianne and St. Damien, teach us to be good stewards so we may return a hundred-fold the makana entrusted to us.

We pray this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
