2 FROM THE DESK OF FATHER DAVIS: id you know that we are within a year or two of some D major anniversary celebrations in our community? In the Fall of 2015, Saint Theresa Catholic School will begin its 90th year of operation, educating the Catholic children from the Coral Gables area, serving as one of the oldest and largest Catholic grade schools in the Archdiocese of Miami. In April of 2016, the Church of the Little Flower will celebrate its 90th anniversary of its founding, becoming the second oldest parish in Miami-Dade County. And then, on December 8th of 2017, the original church of our parish, now Comber Hall, will celebrate the 90th anniversary of its ecclesiastical and liturgical dedication. Wow! 90 years! Many celebrations, special events, historical recognition ceremonies, Galas, and designations will surely be highlights of these anniversary years. If you would like to serve on the 90th anniversary committee, we are currently gathering names of people who will assist the members of our Parish Council as we begin to chart a course for the special occasions soon to take shape in our community. We would welcome your input. I am happy to announce that we are approaching a total of $211,000 in pledges and contributions to this year s ABCD. Our archdiocesan goal, as I mentioned before, is $236,000. So, we still have a little ways to go to meet our goal. Nevertheless, allow me to thank profusely all those who have lovingly involved themselves in this very important annual campaign. Together we are strong in the Lord! Those who have not yet made a pledge are invited to join us in solidarity as we seek to achieve our goal. A full report will be given, as soon as the complete printout of data comes to my office. I am pleased to also report that we are nearly finished with the second floor renovation of the office building. Following the water damage of this past summer, an entire half of the second floor had to be gutted, rebuilt, and refurnished, including airconditioning duct work, and wiring. All is just about in tip top shape, now, as we await the arrival of some new furnishings and the installation of new phones and computers. The renovated space will provide us a new conference room and four new offices. As part of the renovation, we have contracted Windstream, a telecommunications company, to install new computers, phones, and a secure network server for use by the fifteen members of our professional staff. All these enhancements to the second floor are being completely covered by the insurance disbursement which has come to us from the evaluation done by the insurance adjuster. It has been an uncomfortable and stressful past few months as this project has gradually taken shape. Yet, we re almost there! We ll soon have an open house to show you the results. With the support of the Finance Council, last year s ABCD overage which came back to Little Flower was designated to address the pressing need of the window replacement project at the rectory house. Thankfully, the new windows have assured the elimination of leaks, water damage, unwanted wind flow, bugs, and even road noise. What a difference! A long overdue project is now finally done. Later this spring, before Easter, a recently received bequeath will have paid for the exterior painting of the rectory house. The City of Coral Gables asked that it be done as part of the permitting of the windows. Addressing long-deferred maintenance, these enhancements will have addressed the needs of the rectory house for years to come. A great Lenten season is soon to begin. Let s prepare to deepen our walk with Christ! EILLY PARISH CENTER REILLY 2711 Indian Mound Trail Coral Gables, Florida Phone: (305) Follow us on Facebook and Twitter!

3 7 TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME FEBRUARY 23, 2014 Be holy, for I, the LORD, your God, am holy. Leviticus 19:2b BETTER TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE esus words in today s Gospel continue to contrast J the Jewish law and practice with the practice of the followers of Jesus. Today s Gospel continues with slight variations the formulation: You have heard... and What I say to you is... The old laws of retaliation were once created to soften the severe and vengeful retaliations common among the peoples that surrounded the struggling people of God. The would-be followers of Jesus again feel surrounded by people bent on retaliation. So Matthew presents Jesus, who asks his followers not only not to retaliate at all but to turn the other cheek. He asks that his listeners give the one who asks more than he or she seeks. Jesus asks us to love and pray for those of our home country and the alien, the ones who love us and the ones who hate us.

Martin 5:30 pm Fr. Barajas 7:00 pm Fr. Martin TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION live oil looms large in the vocabulary of baptism. O There are other oils in the pantry closet, from grapeseed to safflower to canola, but only olives yield the proper meanings. Olives don t just happen; they are cultivated, nurtured, pruned, and fussed over; they are a sign of human and divine cooperation. Olives can thrive in poor soil, but they cannot survive without human ingenuity, planting shoots and pruning branches. They can t be popped from a tree and munched like apples: they are inedible without long curing; neither do they yield their oil to hand pressure alone, but only to huge stone mills. Abundant patience is needed as sediment sinks to the bottom of storage barrels and pure oil rises to the surface. Olive oil is a byproduct of peace: war keeps harvesters, planters, and pruners within city walls and turns millers into soldiers. To obtain oil from olives you need vast measures of hope, patience, faith, and ingenuity. Olive oil is a sign of God s bounty and the way we human beings collaborate with God to bring about impossibly wonderful results. It is creation at its finest. Some people give chocolate eggs for Easter; perhaps olive oil is a more appropriate gift! Rev. James Field, Copyright J. S. Paluch Co.

In the meantime, the parish is currently in search of volunteer guitarists and musicians to step forward to provide liturgical music at the Sunday night 7pm Mass. If interested, please contact the parish office for an appointment with our Music Director. LENTEN REGULATIONS As we get ready for Lent, it s a good thing to begin to plan our annual penitential practices. Observed in the Archdiocese of Miami, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are both days of ABSTINENCE FROM MEAT products for all those who are 14-years of age or older. These days are also days of FAST for those between the ages of 21 and 59 (which means to say, having only one full meal and two smaller meals those days, the total of the two smaller ones not equal to the one main meal, and eating nothing in between meals. ALL FRIDAYS IN LENT are days of ABSTINENCE FROM MEAT products for those who are 14 years of age or older.

10 7 O DOMINGO DEL TIEMPO ORDINARIO 23 DE FEBRERO DE 2014 Sean santos, porque yo, el Señor, soy santo. Levítico 19:2b ES MEJOR DAR QUE RECIBIR as palabras de Jesús continúan contrastando la L practica y Ley judía con los seguidores de las enseñanzas de Jesús. El Evangelio de hoy continúa con una ligera variación de la frase Ustedes han oído que se dijo... y yo les digo que... Las antiguas leyes de venganza se escribieron para mitigar las represalias severas y vengativas tan comunes entre los pueblos que rodeaban al pueblo guerrero de Dios. Aquellas personas que querían ser seguidores de Jesús también estaban rodeadas por personas empeñadas en vengarse. Por lo que Mateo presenta a Jesús pidiendo a sus seguidores que si alguien los golpea en una mejilla que pongan la otra. Él les pide a las personas que lo escuchan que den más de lo que alguien les pida. Jesús nos pide amar y orar por nuestros conciudadanos y los extranjeros, a los que amamos y a quienes nos odian.

LECTURAS DE LA SEMANA Lunes: Stgo 3:13-18; Sal 19 (18):8-10, 15; Mc 9:14-29 Martes: Stgo 4:1-10; Sal 55 (54):7-11a, 23; Mc 9:30-37 Miércoles: Stgo 4:13-17; Sal 49 (48):2-3, 6-11; Mc 9:38-40 Jueves: Stgo 5:1-6; Sal 49 (48):14-20; Mc 9:41-50 Viernes: Stgo 5:9-12; Sal 103 (102):1-4, 8-9, 11-12; Mc 10:1-12 Sábado: Stgo 5:13-20; Sal 141 (140):1-3, 8; Mc 10:13-16 Domingo: Is 49:14-15; Sal 62 (61):2-3, 6-9; 1 Cor 4:1-5; Mt 6:24-34 A TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE ún lo recuerdo, estaba viajando en el metro de la ciudad de Roma cuando subieron dos mujeres con niños. Vestían como si fueran a una fiesta de disfraces. Noté que todas las personas las evitaban. Eran gitanas, esas a las que mi mamá y mis tías me iban a dar si no me portaba bien. Los gitanos no tienen una buena reputación entre las naciones. Tienen la misma reputación de los pastores de Palestina que vivieron en tiempos de Jesús. Se piensa que son ladrones e inmorales, gente a la que hay que tenerle miedo. Sin embargo, decimos que Jesús es nuestro Buen Pastor. En Jesús, todas las personas que jamás creeríamos capaces de alcanzar la santidad, lo logran. Tal es el caso del Pelé o Zeferino Jiménez, un gitano que en 1936 fue fusilado por militares españoles. El motivo de su muerte fue la enseñanza y difusión de la fe en Cristo. Su muerte fue la cumbre de una vida de fe como franciscano seglar. El ejemplo de vida que este gitano nos dio, logró hacer que los españoles lo respetaran y olvidaran sus prejuicios en contra de su gente. Además de eso, evangelizó a sus hermanos gitanos.
