Thoughts from Fr. Weldon
Ever Growing Tree of the Church
When we live our lives in the shade of the tree, that is the Church, many people, including Catholics, will tell us to be sensible, not to be so emotional, not to hold to antiquated ways of thinking. The want nothing antiquated but they love antiques. They buy furniture that has been “antiqued” with special dents, scrapes, chips, and faded paint. No one wants to grow old, but he / she loves being surrounded with old artifacts. Sentimental farmers keep 50 shovels used by their great-grandfather just in case one is needed. Sentiments can block an exit to the door and doors can shut out the light and even fresh air. Many grasp for identity and sure footing and then slip on steps they think they must climb because they can’t breathe under the weight of their own selfishness.
In God's activity for the kingdom, the "sickle" of sacrifice is also present, for the development of the kingdom does not occur without suffering. We offer the sacrifice of ourselves to God through Jesus Christ. (cf. 1 Pet 2:5). “In the moments of struggle and tribulation, when false goods (wealth and health) fill your way with obstacles, lift your apostolic heart: listen to Jesus as he speaks of the grain of mustard seed and of the leaven, and say to him: “Explain it to me.” (Escrivá the Way 695). When we stand for Christ—for the Truth—we may feel insignificant or small with a focus on inabilities or failures. We might even think of doing nothing. “What could I possibly do?” In this moment we call upon Christ. We are always courageous as we walk by faith and whether we are at home with him or away, we love him and want to please him. As we are here on earth, he has a plan; and that plan is to build the kingdom of God. The branches of the Church grow and bear fruit and become a dwelling for all. “New
Evangelization means: never being satisfied with the fact that from the grain of mustard see, the great tree of the Universal Church grew; never thinking that the fact that different birds may find place among its branches can suffice—rather, it means to dare, once again and with humility of the small grain, to leave up to God the when and how it will grow.” Benedict XVI the Church is old and ever new as the branches grow from the roots of Christ nurtured in the Spirit of Truth.

Michael & Kylee
Who were married at
St. Mark’s on
June 5, 2021
St. Germaine Cousin
1579-1601 | Feast: June 14
Patron: The disabled, the physical unattractive, and victims of abuse
Reflection: Germaine never put much stock in what people thought of her. She was rejected by her family and neighbors for most of her life, but she spent far more time listening to God than she did to gossip. Do I care what other people think of me more than what God thinks? Whose voices do I listen to most? Do they deserve my trust?
St. Maria Guadalupe Garcia Zavala
April 27, 1978—June 24, 1963 | Feast: June 18 Patron: Nurses
Reflection: Madre Lupita was courageous and bold with the love she showed in her hospitals, caring even for those who were persecuting Catholics. She truly lived Jesus’ command to lover her enemies (see Lk 6:35). In what ways can I be loving toward those I find difficult and hope for their good?

A Tender Shoot
Ez 17: 22-24 / 2 Cor 5:6-10 / Mk 4:26-34
Today’s first reading offers a beautiful image of tearing off “a tender shoot” from a cedar tree and planting it on a high mountain. Most of us are quite familiar with the cedar tree — it’s unique aroma and the supple nature of its young branches. Let’s apply this image to our own discipleship. A tender shoot, torn off a more mature branch, can be planted straight into the ground. This little shoot–like you and I–may have been com-fortable where it was, but it has been called to another task. It is young, but it has a powerful life force within it. This shoot has been carefully selected and planted with great purpose. Like this little branch, you and I are sometimes thrust into po-sitions that we didn’t choose; but we always have the ability to choose how we respond. FIAT means recognizing the life force within us and trusting God to use us as He sees fit.
