    PERPETUAL ADORATION

    For over a decade, the parishion-ers of St. Theresa have been en-gaged in a continual act of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. For twenty-four hours a day, every day of the year, the needs of the universal Church, our nation, the parish, our families, and our per-sonal needs have been lifted up to the Lord. The Emmaus chapel of Perpetual Adoration is open to everyone. The parish invites you to commit to one hour of prayer a week be-fore the Blessed Sacrament. There are a few hours during the week in which we only have one adorer. Some of these hours are listed below. Day Hours Sunday 12am, 1am, 2am, 8am, 12pm, 2pm, 4pm, & 5pm

    Monday 1am, 4am, 6am, 11am, 12pm & 1pm

    Tuesday 2am, 3am, 6am, 11am, & 12pm

    Wednesday 1am, 2am, 7am, 12pm & 1pm For more information, or to in-quire about how to become an adorer, please contact Rebecca Freeman (281-844-4616).

    Pope Francis: Angelus appeal for migrant families 2015-10-25 Vatican Radio Prayerful and practical solidarity with every family that has been forced to flee a homeland torn by strife and to seek a better future in distant lands and far-off shores: this was the promise of Pope Francis in remarks to the faithful gathered in St. Peter’s Square before the Angelus prayer this Sunday.

    Drawing on the first reading of the XXX Sunday in Ordinary Time, from the Book of the Prophet Jeremiah, which tells of the Lord’s promise to deliver His faithful people from captivity and restore them to liberty, Pope Francis said, “[T]his prophecy of a people on their way is one I have also confronted with the images of refugees making their way along the streets of Europe, a dramatic reality of our times. God says to them: ‘They left weeping, I shall lead them back amid conso-lations.’ Those families most suffering, uprooted from their land, were present with us in the Synod as well: in our prayers and in our work, through the voice of some of their pastors present at the meeting. These people in search of dignity, these families searching for peace, remain with us still: the Church does not abandon them, for they are part of the people that God desires to free from slav-ery and lead to freedom.”

    The traditional prayer of Marian devotion followed Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica, to mark the closing of the XIV Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, which met in Rome over the past three weeks for prayerful reflection and discus-sion of the vocation and mission of the family in the Church and in the contem-porary world.

    In his homily, Pope Francis reflected on the story recounted in the reading from the Holy Gospel according to St. Mark, in which the Lord miraculously restores the blind beggar, Bartimaeus, to sight. The Holy Father focused on the way the story dramatizes the need for all of us in the Church to make sure that our desires are ordered to Christ, and then to be confident in approaching Him with humility as we ask Him for every blessing – even as we are mindful of all He has done for us, and desirous of sharing the Good News with those, who need it most.

    “Let us follow the path that the Lord desires,” said Pope Francis. “Let us ask Him to turn to us with his healing and saving gaze, which knows how to radiate light, as it recalls the splendour which illuminates it.” The Holy Father concluded, say-ing, “Never allowing ourselves to be tarnished by pessimism or sin, let us seek and look upon the glory of God, which shines forth in men and women who are fully alive.”

    Homilía del Papa: “La salvación es la amistad entre nosotros y Dios”

    2015-10-23 Radio Vaticana

    “Los tiempos cambian y nosotros los cristianos debemos cambiar continuamente”, con libertad y en la verdad de la fe. Lo afirmó el Papa Francisco en su homilía de la Misa matutina celebrada en la capilla de la Casa de Santa Marta.

    El Pontífice reflexionó sobre el discernimiento que la Iglesia debe hacer viendo los “signos de los tiempos”, sin ceder a la comodidad del conformismo, sino dejándose inspirar por la oración.

    Los tiempos hacen lo que deben: cambian. Y los cristianos deben hacer lo que quiere Cristo, a saber: evaluar los tiempos y cambiar con ellos, permaneciendo “firmes en la verdad del Evangelio”. Lo que no se admite es el tranquilo conform-ismo que, de hecho, hace que permanezcamos inmóviles.

    Sabiduría cristiana

    Inspirándose en un pasaje de la Carta de San Pablo a los Romanos, el Santo Padre explicó que el Apóstol predica con “mucha fuerza la libertad que nos ha salvado del pecado”. Mientras el Evangelio relata que Jesús habla de los “signos de los tiempos” definiendo hipócritas a quienes saben comprenderlos pero no hacen lo mismo con el tiempo del Hijo del Hombre. Dios nos ha creado libres y “para tener esta libertad – afirmó el Papa – debemos abrirnos a la fuerza del Espíritu y entender bien qué cosa sucede dentro y fuera de nosotros”, usando el “discernimiento”:

    “Tenemos esta libertad para juzgar lo que sucede fuera de nosotros. Pero para juzgar debemos conocer bien lo que sucede fuera de nosotros. ¿Y cómo se puede hacer esto? ¿Cómo se puede hacer esto, que la Iglesia llama ‘discernir los signos de los tiempos’? Los tiempos cambian. Es precisamente de la sabiduría cristiana conocer estos cambios, conocer los diversos tiempos y conocer los signos de los tiempos. Lo que significa una cosa y lo que significa otra cosa. Y hacer esto sin miedo, con libertad”.

    Silencio, reflexión y oración

    El Papa Bergoglio reconoció que no es una cosa “fácil”, porque son demasiados los condicionamientos externos que también afectan a los cristianos induciendo a muchos a un más cómodo “no hacer”:

    “Este es un trabajo que nosotros no solemos hacer: nos conformamos, nos tranquilizamos con ‘me han dicho, he oído, la gente dice, he leído…’. Así estamos tranquilos… ¿Pero cuál es la verdad? ¿Cuál es el mensaje que el Señor quiere darme con aquel signo de los tiempos? Para entender los signos de los tiempos, ante todo es necesario el silencio: hacer silencio y observar. Y después reflexionar dentro de nosotros. Un ejemplo: ¿por qué hay tantas guerras ahora? ¿Por qué ha suce-dido algo? Y rezar… Silencio, reflexión y oración. Sólo así podremos comprender los signos de los tiempos, y qué cosa quiere decirnos Jesús”.

    Libres en la verdad del Evangelio

    Y comprender los signos de los tiempos no es un trabajo exclusivo de una élite cultural. Jesús – recordó Francisco – no dice “miren cómo hacen los universitarios, miren cómo hacen los doctores, miren cómo hacen los intelectuales…”. Y

    subrayó que Jesús habla a los campes-inos que, “en su sencillez” saben “distinguir el trigo de la cizaña”:

    “Los tiempos cambian y nosotros los cristianos debemos cambiar continua-mente. Debemos cambiar firmes en la fe en Jesucristo, firmes en la verdad del Evangelio, pero nuestra actitud debe moverse continuamente según los signos de los tiempos. Somos li-bres. Somos libres por el don de la libertad que nos ha dado Jesucristo. Pero nuestro trabajo es mirar qué cosa sucede dentro de nosotros, discernir nuestros sentimientos, nuestros pen-samientos; y ver qué cosa sucede fue-ra de nosotros y discernir los signos de los tiempos. Con el silencio, con la reflexión y con la oración ”.

    I could never be a RCIA sponsor. I don't know my faith? A sponsor, as a representative of the community, ac-companies a candidate on their journey to becoming practicing Catholics. They are asked to share their faith experiences, not teach theology. Sponsors invite their candidates to church activities like special prayer ser-vices, such as Stations of the Cross in Lent, as well as date night, fish frys or the bazaar. Sponsors check in with their candidates to see how they and their families are doing. They may have their candidates and family over for dinner, for example. A sponsor gives testimony and stands as a witness to the candidate’s moral character, faith and intention espe-cially before the candidate can be initiated.
