When we are faced with people or situations that anger us, we usually react in a way that we will later regret. The psalmist says that God is slow to anger and that is to our benefit. But how do we respond to disturbing situations? Bringing the Message Home All of us will face people or situations that will anger us. Will our responds be from a rush of adrenaline or from an attitude of slow to anger abounding in kindness? To help make life less stressful, look over your days agenda and identify possible irritating situations and prayerfully resolve to face them with a renewed effort to be patient and slow to anger.

3 PASTOR S MESSAGE CHILDREN REFUGEES: OUR CHRISTIAN RESPONSIBILITY As has been well documented by the media and government records, our country is facing a child and youth refugee crisis of immense proportions. In 2010, United States immigration authorities detained around 6,800 children and placed them in federal custody. This year some 90,000 are expected to be picked up. Twenty-five percent come from Honduras. They almost all come for the purpose of escaping violence, kidnapping, enslavement into drug cartel gangs, murder, rape and all forms of viciousness. The drug terrorists virtually control Honduras because of a weak and corrupt government that thrives on bribery and extortion. Our government and that of Colombia spent literally billions of dollars to try to stop cocaine from reaching the USA and now 79% of cocaine smuggling flights to our country come through Honduras. There is a need to distinguish refugee children and youth from illegal immigrant children and youth who are seeking a better life and have one or both parents still in their country of origin. We need to treat them humanely, process their cases quickly but justly and if called for re-repatriate them. But the vast majority of these immigrant children and youth would qualify for humanitarian parole procedures similar to those used for Cambodian, Iraqi, Cuban, Vietnamese and Haitian children and youth. Overworked Homeland Security guards and judges have to make hasty decisions now that do not always protect the rights and the troubled histories of the children and youth they evaluate. Being a social worker as well as a priest, I know how complicated it is to interview and learn the true-life situations of traumatized children and youth. Decisions affecting life and death cannot be forced or rushed to meet quotas and deadlines. A real due process procedure to deal with these children and youth would, according to a reputable refugee organization, Kids in Need of Defense, result in 40-60% of them being judged eligible to stay here. As Catholic Christians who are voting citizens, we have a responsibility to put our faith into action and to seek to influence the political processes that represent us. The safety and welfare of some 58,000 children and youth who have arrived here since last October require this of us. Border security, anti-drug programs, immigration quotas, foreign aid etc. are all part of a complex picture. Our Gospel mandate is clear, however, we should not allow a double victimization of so many children and youth refugees. When Jesus said "Let the little children come to me", He meant it and asks us to do the same. Please read over again the information from our Catholic Bishops that was printed in last week's bulletin and make an effort to write our political representatives and challenge them to protect the lives of these children and youth refugees. Please consult these websites for more information - Msgr. Michael D. McGraw JULY 20 l ST. JOAN OF ARC l 3

7 A note from the Choir and Liturgical Committee It has become customary for many members of our congregation to applaud after songs at Mass and after some inspiring homilies. In our society it is very natural for people to express their appreciation of a job well done in sports, theater, musical performances and other activities with a round of applause. Mass, however, should never be considered a performance or some kind of religious entertainment, and while it may seem that we are being appreciative of the people in the music ministry or the priest by applauding we should remember that the focus of the Mass should always be on God and our praise and worship of Him. Applauding people during Mass, in effect, singles out the choir or the priest for their efforts and this changes our focus from God to individual people. The Mass is a liturgical event and the word liturgy means, service to God, or the work of the people for God, and the ritual itself exists to draw our attention away from ourselves. Our, work, our participation at Mass is our attentiveness to the priest s prayers and the Liturgy of the Word, our full and genuine responses to the prayers of the people, our joining in the singing of praise to our God and our silent and prayerful reflection during the quiet parts of the Mass. Yes, our choir members are very talented and many of the priest s homilies are very inspiring. However, one must remember that the praise is for God and the preaching is for the teaching of the word of God and while our applause may be well intended its effect is one of turning our attention away from God to focus on the individual. Both the Music Ministry and the Liturgical Committee respectfully request that when we are inspired by a certain song or homily, instead of clapping, we internalize that feeling of appreciation and turn it into a prayer of gratitude towards our God, the one who, ultimately, gives us all things great and beautiful. May we together create a Mass culture that reflects the sacredness of the House of God. - Deacon Bill Watzek PARISH LITURGY COMMITTEE PRAYERS FOR PEACE IN ISRAEL Our Pope Francis, on his regular address to thousands of pilgrims on Saint Peter s Square, spoke of the tragic events of the last few days. He appealed on Sunday for peace in Gaza during his weekly Angelus Prayer. He tried his best to promote reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians when he held a joint Prayer for Peace in June attended by President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. While we are grateful to God for the peace that reign in our land, we must show our support to all the victims in conflict-torn countries, the innocent people killed as a result of senseless violence, the displaced families of war, as well as those whose lives are in constant danger because of hostilities. Please remember them in your daily prayers as we include them in our Prayers of the Faithful. Hopefully this tragic event between Israel and Palestine will serve as eye opener to all of us and appreciate how blessed we are compared to others. May this realization opens our hearts to our less fortunate brethren needing our prayers. May the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph bless, protect and keep them safe. May those who died rest in peace. Amen. - Father Jimmy B. Hababag JULY 20 l ST. JOAN OF ARC l 7

9 FROM OUR DIRECTOR OF MARRIAGE MINISTRY EMBRACING IMPERFECTION When I was a little girl, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned toast in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his toast, smile at my mom, and ask me how my day was at school. I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that toast and eat every bite! When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the toast. And I'll never forget what he said: 'Baby, I love burned toast.' Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if He really liked his toast burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, 'Debbie, your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired. And besides-a little burnt toast never hurt anyone!' The path to happiness is not straight. There are curves called MISTAKES, there are caution lights called FAMILY, and everything can be achieved if you have: a spare tire DECISION call, a powerful engine called LOVE, a good Insurance called FAITH, abundant fuel called PATIENCE, but above all, an expert driver named GOD.

10 Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, On July 26th, the Feast of Saints Joachim and Anne, the parents of the Blessed Mother, I will celebrate the Saturday Vigil Mass in honor of married love and the gift of life at 4:30 P.M. at the Cathedral of St. Ignatius Loyola. I invite all the faithful, especially families and children, to attend. July 26th will mark the conclusion of the Natural Family Planning Awareness Week which we will begin on July 20th, under the theme Natural Family Planning It s worth it! Join the revolution! The annual educational campaign sponsored by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) celebrates God s design for married love, the gift of life and the benefit of Natural Family Planning (NFP). The week falls during the anniversary of the Papal Encyclical Humanae Vitae which articulates Catholic beliefs about human sexuality, conjugal love and responsible parenthood. NFP upholds Catholic teaching on married love by respecting "the Godgiven power to love a new human life into being" (U.S. Bishops, Married Love and the Gift of Life, 2006). Through an expression of reciprocal personal giving in the conjugal act, spouses become sharers in God's creative action. With NFP, couples exercise responsible parenthood without breaking the "inseparable connection" between the unitive and procreative meanings of the conjugal act that are written by God Himself into the nature of the human being (HV, no.12). Modern NFP methods are scientific in their biology. They rely on natural KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS SCHEDULE OF EVENTS FOR FALL 2014 Keep a close eye on these events for sports and travel with the Knights of Columbus, THREE DYNAMITE GAMES WITH THE DOLPHINS on opening day, Sunday, September 7, dolphins vs. patriots lower bowl seats, bus to and back, tailgate party.

Couples learn how to identify and interpret the natural, observable signs of the wife's fertility cycle. As NFP becomes a way of life, both husband and wife share in the duties of responsible parenthood, and communication and mutual trust are fostered between themselves and God. It is interesting to note that couples who practice NFP suffer divorce at a rate of less than 3% as opposed to a national rate above 50% for first time marriages. During NFP Awareness Week, I would like to thank those married couples who live out their marriage commitment to free, total, faithful and fruitful love. I encourage all married couples and those preparing for marriage to reflect on their current or future marriages and the way they can authentically and responsibly live out their parenthood. If you have not considered NFP, I encourage you to take a class and discover the richness of NFP.

Adults who are interested in converting to the Catholic Faith. Catholics who have been away and would like to know more about their faith. What: A faith journey to help you understand the Catholic Faith and become an active member of the Catholic Church. When: every Tuesday from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Starts on August 26, 2014 until the Easter Vigil How: Stop by the Office of Faith Formation and Religious Education to Register. You may also download the application at or call the office (561) for more information. CONFIRMATION FOR ADULTS 18 AND OVER Adults who only need to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation are invited to participate in a special 7 week preparation program starting Thursday, AUGUST 7, :00 to 8:30 p.m. Please stop by the Office of Faith Formation and Religious Education to Register. Call (561) for more information. All-powerful God Send your Holy Spirit upon your daughters and sons to be their helper and guide. Give them the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of right judgment and courage, the spirit of knowledge and reverence. Fill them with the spirit of wonder and awe in your presence. We ask this through Christ our Lord. (Prayer of the Bishop over Candidates during Confirmation) CONFIRMATION - OCTOBER 11TH, 2014 FAITH FORMATION & RELIGIOUS EDUCATION RELIGIOUS EDUCATION SUMMER OFFICE HOURS Parents with children in Religious Education last year may have received a call from our Office inviting them to come back to register for Religious Education again. The most common response we have received is BUT MY CHILD AL- READY DID FIRST COMMUNION. I would like this opportunity to explain to you why we are inviting them back. When you send your child to school, it is important for the child to complete his or her education from Kinder to Twelfth grade. If the child only goes to second grade and does not return again until twelfth grade expecting to graduate, there will be a huge gap in the education of the child and graduation will not be possible. More importantly, the child will not have the tools and education needed to navigate college. In Faith Formation, something similar often happens. The child comes to First Communion Monday to Friday 9:00am. to 4:00 pm. Open during Lunch hour. Also by appointment. HEY RELIGIOUS EDUCATION KIDS SUMMER IS HERE! Ah the summer months! No homework no heavy backpacks uniforms reports no tests science projects or dragging to the bus stop too early in the morning Beach Time to hit the beach, the pool, the mall, and the movies. Hang out with friends. Fun summer camps sleeping late and playing video games till late... eating ice cream vacationing with family traveling to new places or old favorite ones... Wonderful time SUMMER But wait aren t we forgetting something? Where is God in all this? Luckily for us, God does not take vacations. He continues to watch over us 24/7 even over the summer months. So, yes Catechism is over, no more coming every Sunday at 9:15 a.m. or Wednesday at 4:45p.m. But please, don t forget to continue to come to thank Jesus in a formal way in the celebration of the Mass. The word Eucharist means just that TO GIVE THANKS. Yes, I know what you are thinking you can thank God at anytime and anywhere. And that is true. But coming to Mass is a special way we give thanks to God for the week we ve had and we come to receive the food that strengthens our spiritual life in the bread and wine where Jesus is present. Especially all those of you who have received First Communion this year should continue to come every week to receive the body of Christ. You say, but I m going on vacation, I can t come to St. Joan! No worries. There are Catholic Churches where masses are celebrated all over United States. It s also part of the vacation fun to go visit a new Church and learn its history. I love to stop by Our Lady Queen of the Universe in Orlando when I go to Disney World or Universal Studios, it s a beautiful Church constructed for tourists. Many states have older style Churches that you may not be familiar with, it is a lot of fun to see the architecture of the building and the different saints and paintings those churches have. And more important, it s a great feeling to know that anywhere we go, we have a place where we are family, where we are home and where we can share our faith with others. I will be going on retreat and vacation these coming weeks. You and your family will be in my prayers. I look forward to finding a new church to visit and go to Mass. Did your child receive First Communion on May 10th? preparation and then does not return until Confirmation. There is a huge gap in the faith education of the child. In Catholic School, children receive Catholic religion classes every day. Children in public school and even in private Christian schools do not benefit from the Catholic formation they need to understand their faith. Catechism is the way that has been established to give children a formal systematic Catholic education. Please, bring your child to Religious Education to continue their religious training. Each grade has a specific topic to deepen the child s knowledge of the Catholic faith. I assure you, you will provide your child with a most wonderful gift. Next week, I will share with you the curriculum of the program as it progresses through the years. Have a safe and restful summer! JULY 20 l ST. JOAN OF ARC l 11

15 Ministerio Hispano MISA EN ESPAÑOL TODOS LOS SABADOS A LAS 6:30pm. (Confesiones todos los Sábados a las 5:45pm (antes de la Santa Misa) en la capilla) Nuestro principal apostolado como cristianos consiste en crear en el mundo un ambiente de auténtica caridad XVI DOMINGO DEL TIEMPO ORDINARIO, CICLO A SAN MATEO 13, 24-43: LA CIZAÑA DE LA MALA DOCTRINA Ahogar la cizaña con la abundancia de buena semilla. No desaprovechar ninguna ocasión. La abundancia de cizaña sólo puede contrarrestarse con mayor abundancia aún de buena doctrina: vencer al mal con el bien, con ejemplo de vida y coherencia de conducta. El Señor nos llama a buscar la santidad en medio del mundo, en el cumplimiento de los deberes ordinarios; y esta llamada reclama de nosotros una presencia activa en las realidades humanas nobles que de alguna manera nos atañen. No basta lamentarse ante tantos errores y ante medios tan poderosos para difundirlos, la buena doctrina de Jesús,no puede quedar fuera de la vida pública y, sobre todo, debe ser parte de la educación, la cultura, la vida familiar. DIEZ CLAVES PARA UN VERANO CRISTIANO Exponerse al SOL y broncearse puede ser una oportunidad para que se evaporen del interior de nosotros mismos las toxinas de la insolidaridad y del engreimiento. Bronceado del alma. La belleza encanta la vista, pero el mérito gana el alma Cobijarse en la SOMBRA es buscar un momento para la lectura de la Palabra de Dios y para la reflexión serena de cómo va nuestra propia vida. Darse un buen BAÑO conlleva el limpiar la conciencia y el corazón de todo poso de corrupción y de envidia, de agobios y de estrés. Tomarse un REFRIGERIO es hacer un alto en el camino cada domingo para participar en la Eucaristía dominical, levantarse y acostarse cada día dando gracias a Dios. La oración es la llave de la mañana y el cierre de la noche PASEAR es caer en la cuenta que somos peregrinos en la tierra. Nada es definitivo y, por lo tanto, es bueno echar la vista atrás para ver si en la gran playa de nuestra vida cristiana estamos dejando huella que merezca la pena. DIALOGAR nos hace caer en la cuenta que somos seres sociales y que, para enriquecer, necesitamos de un contraste con los otros que nos rodean. DESCANSAR exige detener un poco el ritmo de nuestra existencia. No siempre lo que hacemos es lo más importante ni aquello que aparcamos es lo más innecesario. BUSCAR a Dios. Muchos se preocupan por recoger conchas en la arena y son incapaces de dar con un incentivo para sus vidas. Si te vas al fin del mundo encontrarás la huella de Dios. Si te vas al fin de ti mismo, es Dios mismo a quien encontrarás (D. Copperfield) CONVIVIR es salir de uno mismo y hacer partícipes de mis éxitos y de mis fracasos a los que me rodean. La gente se te hace pesada? No te la cargues a tu espalda, llévatela en tu corazón LA ALEGRIA por vivir y creer. La realidad dura que nos toca vivir echa en falta hombres y mujeres, armónicos y felices consigo mismo. La alegría es una red de amor con la que se pueden capturar muchas almas (M. Teresa de Calcuta) Para Información sobre los sacramentos, clases de preparación para bautismo, etc. Entrar en nuestra página web: o pedir información en la parroquia con María, Rosario o Alba Para pedir una intención en las misas para difuntos o enfermos dirigirse a la oficina parroquial en las horas de oficina. Nuestra contribución semanal a la Iglesia. Como miembros de Santa Juana de Arco la comunidad hispana contribuimos semanalmente con el ofertorio, continuemos siendo generosos con nuestra aportación. La participación de todos los feligreses es esencial para el éxito de nuestros ministerios apostólicos. JULY 20 l ST. JOAN OF ARC l 15

16 MINISTERIO HISPANO AVISOS PARROQUIALES Quédate conmigo, señor, porque aunque mi alma sea tan pobre, desea ser para Ti un lugar de descanso, un nido de amor.. BIENVENIDO ALEJANDRO SANCHEZ nuevo director de nuestro coro. Todos los interesados en participar en nuestro coro, adultos, jóvenes y niños, hablen con Alejandro después de la Misa. OFERTORIO Gracias Familia Teran: Jorge, Reina, Diana y Jorge. Próximamente encuentro para familias de Santa Juana de Arco y sus amistades. TALLERES DE MINISTROS EXTRAORDINARIOS DE LA COMUNION Todos los Ministros extraordinarios de la comunión de Santa Juana de Arco y todos los que quisieran ser ministros, están invitados a participar en el Taller que la hermana Vivian González, RMI ofrece el sábado 2 de agosto en Santa Juana de Arco de 10:00 a 12:00 en la sala de conferencias A. TALLERES PARA PROCLAMADORES DE LA PALABRA El sábado 16 de agosto de 10:00 am a 12:00pm La Hermana Vivian González, RMI dictara un Taller para Proclamadores de la Palabra en la sala de Conferencias A. Todos los proclamadores de la palabra de Santa Juana de Arco y aquellos que estén interesados en serlo están invitados a participar. PORQUE ES IMPORTANTE REGISTRARSE COMO MIEMBROS DE LA PARROQUIA. Es muy importante que participemos en nuestra comunidad como miembros activos de la parroquia registrándonos en la oficina y utilizando el sobre en la Misa (en lugar de dejar la contribución sin sobre). De esta manera la parroquia conoce quienes somos y que participamos activamente de las Misas y demás liturgias. A la hora de pedir los sacramentos (Bautismo, Confirmación, Primera comunión, Matrimonio y funerales) para nuestros hijos o ahijados se nos preguntara si somos miembros activos en nuestra parroquia. Si estamos registrados como miembros activos de la parroquia se podrá comprobar fácilmente, el solo asistir a Misa regularmente no es suficiente para que la parroquia nos reconozca como sus miembros. Por favor no deje de registrarse para evitar inconvenientes en la hora de pedir los sacramentos. Gracias. CONFESIONES EN ESPAÑOL todos los sábados antes de la Misa. BAUTISMOS Próximo Bautismo en español sábado 16 de agosto Próxima clase pre bautismal en español para padres y padrinos: martes 19 de agosto a las 7:00pm. Información: A partir de los 7 años los niños y jóvenes que deseen recibir el sacramento del Bautismo deberán recibir catequesis. RICA RITO DE INICIACIÓN CRISTIANA PARA ADULTOS RICA es un proceso por el cual una persona que desea recibir los sacramentos en la Iglesia Católica es instruida en la fe Católica y luego recibida como fiel de la Iglesia. Si usted desea ser Católico o conoce alguna persona que tiene esa inquietud puede llamar al ministerio de formación religiosa de la parroquia Sr. Vivian Gonzalez, RMI, Rosa Davidson (561) (561) , o al ministerio hispano, Constanza Preble para mayor información. También aquellos adultos mayores de 18 años que ya han sido bautizados pero desean recibir la Sagrada Comunión y el sacramento de la Confirmación pueden participar de este programa. Los cursos de RICA comienzan el martes 26 de agosto de 6:30 a 9:00pm y se reúnen una vez por semana. Los catecúmenos son recibidos en la fe en la vigilia de Pascua. Clases de Confirmación para mayores de 18 años TODOS los JUEVES de 7:00 a 8:30 pm a partir del 7 de agosto El 11 de octubre de 2014 el Obispo Barbarito celebrara el Sacramento de la Confirmación en Santa Juana de Arco.
