A special way to remember a loved one is to donate the monthly Altar Bread and/or Wine in honor of their memory. You may also choose to remember a loved one by donating a weekly Sanctuary Lamp in either the Church or the Chapel. Sanctuary Lamps burn day and night to illuminate the Blessed Sacrament, serve as an emblem of Christ's abiding love, and as a reminder to the faithful to respond with loving adoration in return. The Altar Bread for June is donated in loving memory of
Lenny Caruso (Pat Caruso).
The Altar Wine for June is donated in loving memory of
Cosmo J. Azzoline (Charlene Azzoline)
The Sanctuary Lamp in the Church this week is in memory of Rev. William Giblin (Holy Rosary Staff )

Please Remember in Your Prayers
A Message From Father Jose
This week we enter into the 13th Sunday in Ordinary
Time, as we commemorate “Religious Freedom Week. The Church religious freedom expresses her solidarity with all the people who seek the common good and hope for fulfillment in the truth. As Pope Francis teaches: “Hope speaks to us of a thirst, an inspiration, a longing for life of fulfillment, a desire to achieve great things that fulfills our hearts and lift our spirit to lofty realities like truth, goodness and beauty, justice and love….Hope is bold, it can look beyond personal convenience, the petty securities and compensations which limit our horizon, and it can open us up to grand ideals that make life more beau-tiful and worthwhile…”(Fratelli tutti, 55).
Let us all join this week as we pray, reflect and take actions on religious liberty, throughout the world. The scriptur-al readings of this week, especiscriptur-ally the gospel, support this hope presenting to us that God has the answer for everything that man hopes for. Trust and have faith in Him like Jairus and the woman afflicted with hemorrhage.
~God bless~ Father Jose
“…as a matter of equality your abundance at the present time should supply their want, so that their abundance may supply your want, that there may be equality.” 2 CORINTHIANS 8:14
One of the tenants of living a grateful and generous lifestyle is giving without expect-ing anythexpect-ing in return. It is important that we not only grow, nurture and share our gifts; but that we also teach our children and encourage others to do the same. This is the communal aspect of our Catholic faith. We are the “Body of Christ”. We are called to be depend-ent on each other and not live in isolation.
Jesus’ Example of Helping Others
In today’s second reading Paul offers a wonderful argu-ment to his converts at Corinth for seeking to help those in need. He is dealing with a practical problem, arranging a collection for the poor of the church of Jerusalem; but as he often does, he develops an important teaching about Jesus to make his point.
After asking that they show their faith by generous gifts, he reminds them of the “gracious act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, for your sake he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9). In the In-carnation our Lord assumed our human nature, certainly be-coming poor for one who is God. The ultimate gracious act of this poverty was going to the cross with all its terrible suffer-ings. By this act of poverty we definitely become rich. Now our sins can be forgiven; we can share in the very life of God through the sacraments; we can attain eternal salvation!
First Reading — God did not make death, nor does God rejoice in the destruction of the living (Wisdom 1:13-15; 2:23-24). Psalm — I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me (Psalm 30).
Second Reading — Your abundance should supply the needs of the others (2 Corinthians 8:7, 9, 13-15).
Gospel — Your faith has saved you (Mark 5:21-43 [21-24, 35b-43]).

Works of Charity
Time & Talent Food Pantry:
Parish members assist in supplying approximately 45 families with food every month. Thank you to all who donated and helped in any way! The Food Pantry is open on the last Mon-day of every month (excluding holiMon-days).
Feeding the Homeless:
Normally, Holy Rosary Parish members feed the homeless on the second Monday of every month. This has been temporarily suspended due to current CoVid-19 pandemic. We will resume as soon circumstances allow.
Your Monetary Donations: The work of Christ at Holy Ro-sary is supported by parishioners who have embraced the bibli-cal ideals of Stewardship Tithing.
Feast of Faith Preparation of the Gifts
The altar is prepared, the gifts are received. Several brief rites follow with accompanying prayers, some prayed silently by the priest and deacon and others said aloud. We call this part of the Mass the “preparation.”
What kind of preparation is happen-ing? First, the presider holds up the paten or bowl containing the hosts, and says words that Jesus must have said many times, since they derive from ancient Jewish meal prayers: “Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation!”
We have brought forward our gifts, our offering to God, and now we
acknowledge that they are not really ours—the gifts that we give are God’s gift to us. It is “through your goodness” that we have gifts to offer. It is significant that we offer not wheat and grapes, but bread and wine; “fruit of the earth and work of hu-man hands.” Bread and wine are both God’s work, and ours.
These preparatory rites also prepare us for what we are about to do in the Eucharist, a mystery in which divine and human meet; a holy collaboration in which our action is caught up into God’s divine plan.
Current Holy Rosary Fundraiser Proceeds: The current pro-ceeds from our ongoing fundraising efforts for a church cooling system are as follows: A/C Fundraising (ongoing): $39,776.10; Four bake sales: $989; Tricky Tray (12/8/19): $1,470.

— Psalm 30:13
Convertiste mi duelo en ale-gría
te alabaré por eso eterna-mente.
— Salmo 30 (29):13
Saint Junipero Serra (1713-1784): July 1 No one who has stood
before the quiet majesty of Mis-sion San Juan Capistrano, or the altogether different but no less lovely Mission Dolores in San Francisco, or any of the missions from San Diego to Sonoma can fail to bless the Franciscan padre who, while not founder of each, was inspiration for them all, Saint Junípero Serra. Abandoning the
comfortable academic life to which his doctorate in theology entitled him, Serra journeyed to the New World where his tire-less traveling, dramatic preaching, and penitential austerity converted thousands of native peoples. Saving souls and cele-brating the sacraments were Padre Serra’s primary mission but not his only one. Education in letters and crafts, trades and agri-culture transformed the people, while roads and irrigation sys-tems transfigured the landscape. His more than thirty years of ministry were not free from conflict with authorities or without controversy in the retrospectively critical eye of history. But when John Paul II beatified him in 1988, he praised Padre Serra for assisting his converts to use their new faith to advance their true human development. He was canonized by Pope Francis in September 2015.
O God, in Your ineffable mercy, You chose Saint Junípero Serra as a means of gathering many peoples of the Americas into Your Church. Grant that through his intercession our hearts may be united in You in ever greater love, so that at all times and in all places we may show
forth the image of Your Only-Begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one
Prayer in Honor of Saint Irenaeus
O God, who called the Bishop Saint Irenaeus to confirm true doctrine and the peace of the Church,
grant, we pray, through his intercession, that, being renewed in faith and charity, we may always be intent on fostering unity and concord.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Prayer to Saints Peter & Paul
Blessed Redeemer, Saints Peter and Paul were leaders and models in strengthening the faith of the infant Church, and I ask them to pray
for my faith to grow strong.
Saint Paul wrote in his second letter to Saint Timothy, “I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God that you have.”
Wherever I am still a baby in my relationship with You, weak and uncertain, I ask Saints Peter and Paul to pray for me to grow into
Help me, O Lord, to increase in faith and trust. Where Your presence is but a spark in me, fan it into a flame that brightens other people’s
lives. Saints Peter and Paul, pray for me. Amen.
Prayer in Honor of the First Martyrs of the
Holy Roman Church
(Wednesday) O God, who consecrated
the abundant first fruits of the Roman Church by the blood of the Martyrs, grant, we pray, that with firm courage we may together draw strength from so great a struggle
and ever rejoice at the triumph of faithful love. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Prayer to Saint Thomas
Almighty and ever living God, who didst strengthen Thine apostle Thomas with sure and certain faith in Thy Son's resurrection: Grant us so perfectly and without doubt to believe in Jesus Christ, our Lord and our God, that our faith may never be found wanting in Thy sight;
through Him who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
