First Reading - Amos said, “The LORD took me from following the flock, and said to me, Go, prophesy to my people” (Amos 7:12-15).

Psalm - Lord, let us see your kindness, and grant us your salvation (Psalm 85).

Second Reading - The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing (Ephesians 1:3-14 [3-10]).

Gospel - Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two (Mark 6:7-13).

Who chose first, God or you? That is the question explored in today’s three readings. The second reading, from Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians, reads almost like a hymn. It praises God for choosing us, for calling us to serve, and for blessing us in our service. Paul makes it clear how honored we are and how special is the call to live as children of God. This is through no doing of our own.

The first reading and the Gospel use prose rather than poetry to describe the same truth: God did the choosing, not us. When the prophet Amos was berated for being a prophet, he retorted that the whole thing wasn’t his idea in the first place. Neither did the twelve apostles in today’s Gospel ask for their calling. Jesus sent them forth, two by two, to do the work of his kingdom.

Today’s readings are about being chosen and sent. The prophet Amos was chosen by the Lord and sent to use his talents for the people of God. The Gospel recounts the story of the sending of the twelve disciples; and in the second reading, St. Paul reminds us that we, too, are chosen. For what have I been chosen? To whom have I been sent?

We are in search of parishioners who enjoy working with children and would share their faith journey with our young parishioners. Are you that person? As we look to open our Faith Formation Program this fall, we are searching for several catechists. Kindergarten, 1st and 3rd grade Catechists are needed. You do

not need a degree in education or theology to help out. We ask for a weekly commitment of your time from 9:00-10:20 on Sunday mornings from September to May and a desire to accompany your class as they deepen their relationship with Jesus. Please call Mary Arnold at 746-2144, email faithformation@ourladyofgracefl.org, or stop by the parish office for more information.

Sunday Gospel Reflections From Bishop Parkes Let the Lord lead you

“He instructed them to take nothing for the journey

but a walking stick-no food, no sack, no money in their belts.” – Mark 6:8

When we go on a trip, maybe a vacation to the mountains or beach, we pack our bags and bring the appropriate clothes for the destination. When I was a child and we’d travel from New York to Florida to spend time with my grandparents, mom would often prepare snacks, sandwiches or a meal to eat on the road. She was a planner and often had each day and activity detailed. My Dad had the route on a map or trip tik (if you remember what those were) in case it was needed. The car was packed in just the right order.

Mark’s Gospel this weekend has Jesus doing things a bit differently when sending the disciples into the world to spread His Word. Instead of the disciples packing food, clothes and making preparations for housing at a local inn, He said, “take nothing for the journey but a walking stick - no food, no sack, no money.” Our Lord wanted to teach a lesson to His followers that God will take care of all their needs regardless of the circumstances. The even deeper lesson is that we should not let worldly distractions or personal wants get in the way of doing the work of the Lord.

We might say to ourselves, when tasked with volunteering for a ministry in the church, “Well, I’d like to, but I just don’t have the time. Or, I have to take care of this or that.” Or perhaps, “I’m not as talented as others. I don’t have the ability or the means.” But, our Lord tells us to “Go.” We shouldn’t worry about all the reasons why we can’t do something. Trust in God and that He will never ask us to do something unless He gives us what we need to accomplish it.

He calls us to do His work on earth, and by submitting to His will, God will take care of all our needs. Does it take trust and courage? It certainly does. Will we at times face doubt, rejection and even persecution? Probably. But God gives us the strength to persevere if we only let Him. That’s what we are called to do—to courageously live the Gospel in all circumstances, sharing the Good News wherever He leads us.

Pray for the boldness and courage to go forth today and allow Him to lead you on the right path and to invite others to come along on the journey. Bishop Gregory Parkes

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time Invitation to the Eucharistic Prayer

After the presider washes his hands, he turns to the people and says, “Pray that our sacrifice may be acceptable to God the almighty Father.” We have brought forward bread and wine, and now we are asked to see in these simple gifts upon the altar a sacrifice offered to God. Our response is rich in theological meaning. “May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands.” The words point to the unique role of the priest, whose hands, at his ordination, were anointed for just this purpose: that he might

“sanctify the Christian people and offer sacrifice to God” (Rite of Ordination). We ask God to accept our sacrifice not because it is worthy of God, but simply “for the praise and glory of his name.” God does not need our offering, but allows us to give it so that we might grow in holiness. And God, never to be outdone in generosity, gives all that we have given back to us, “for our good and the good of all his Church.” This Mass benefits not just those who have gathered, but, in the mysterious economy of grace, the whole Church. In the words of Saint Paul, when one part rejoices, the whole body “share[s] its joy” (1 Corinthians 12:26).

SU CONTRIBUCIÓN: $ 10 Reflexiones del Evangelio Dominical del Obispo Parkes

Deja que el Señor te guie

“Les mandó que no llevaran nada para el camino:

ni pan, ni mochila, ni dinero en el cinto, sino únicamente un bastón”. – Marcos 6, 8

Cuando nos vamos de viaje, tal vez de vacaciones a las montañas o a la playa, hacemos las maletas y llevamos la ropa adecuada para el lugar a donde vamos. Cuando yo era niño y viajábamos de Nueva York a la Florida para pasar un tiempo con mis abuelos, mi mamá a menudo preparaba bocadillos, sándwiches o una comida para el camino. Ella era una buena planificadora y a menudo tenía cada día y actividad detallada. Mi papá tenía la ruta en un mapa o en un trip tik (¿los recuerdas?) en caso de que fuera necesario. El auto iba abarrotado, pero de forma ordenada.

El Evangelio de Marcos de este fin de semana nos presenta a Jesús haciendo cosas un poco diferente cuando envía a los discípulos al mundo para difundir su palabra. En lugar de dejar que los discípulos empacaran comida y ropa, y se hospedaran en una posada les dijo “que no llevaran nada para el camino: ni pan, ni mochila, ni dinero en el cinto, sino únicamente un bastón". Nuestro Señor quería enseñar a sus discípulos la lección de que Dios se haría cargo de todas sus necesidades a pesar de las circunstancias. La lección aún más profunda es que no debemos dejar que las distracciones mundanas o los deseos personales obstaculicen la obra del Señor.

Cuando se nos encomienda la tarea de servir como voluntarios en un ministerio en la Iglesia podríamos decirnos: "Me gustaría hacerlo, pero no encuentro el tiempo”; o “tengo que ocuparme de esto o aquello”; o tal vez nos dijéramos “no tengo esos talentos como los demás”. “No tengo la capacidad ni los medios". Pero, nuestro Señor nos dice: “hazlo". No debemos preocuparnos por todas las razones que nos damos para no hacer algo. Confía en Dios que nunca nos pedirá que hagamos algo a menos que nos dé lo que necesitamos para lograrlo.

Dios nos llama a hacer su obra en la tierra y, si nos entregamos a su voluntad, atenderá todas nuestras necesidades. ¿Se necesita confianza y valentía? Desde luego que sí. ¿Afrontaremos a veces la duda, el rechazo e incluso la persecución? Probablemente sí. Pero Dios nos da la fuerza para perseverar si se lo permitimos. Esto es lo que estamos llamados a hacer: vivir valientemente el Evangelio en todas las circunstancias y compartir la buena nueva dondequiera que el Señor nos lleve.

Ora para recibir la audacia y la valentía de emprender hoy el camino correcto dejándote guiar por Dios e invita a otras personas a que te acompañen en tu caminar. Monseñor Gregory Parkes
