Daily Gospel Reading and Reflection from Fr. Frank

At that time:
Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee,
went up on the mountain, and sat down there. 
Great crowds came to him,
having with them the lame, the blind, the deformed, the mute,
and many others. 
They placed them at his feet, and he cured them. 
The crowds were amazed when they saw the mute speaking,
the deformed made whole, 
the lame walking, 
and the blind able to see,
and they glorified the God of Israel.

Jesus summoned his disciples and said,
“My heart is moved with pity for the crowd,
for they have been with me now for three days
and have nothing to eat. 
I do not want to send them away hungry,
for fear they may collapse on the way.” 
The disciples said to him,
“Where could we ever get enough bread in this deserted place
to satisfy such a crowd?” 
Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” 
“Seven,” they replied, “and a few fish.” 
He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground. 
Then he took the seven loaves and the fish,
gave thanks, broke the loaves,
and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds. 
They all ate and were satisfied. 
They picked up the fragments left over–seven baskets full.

(Matthew 15:29-37)

 

I find it helpful to approach unnamed characters in the bible as if they are calling me to step in their shoes for a moment. What is it about my life right now that is lame, unable to move? What is it about my life right now that is blind, unable to see? What is it about my life that is deformed, misshaped? What is it about my life right now that is mute, inarticulate, and unable to communicate? What would it look like today if I allowed Jesus to touch these wounded areas in my soul? What if I was truly given the sight to see and to receive the Body and Blood of the Lord in what was simple bread? Would I be satisfied? Why not? What are the areas in my life I simply need Jesus’ real presence? Advent is an opportunity to ask these questions and to keep watch.

Attending Events at Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Thank you for being part of our parish community and for all your support! As society begins to “re-open,” we are looking forward to seeing you again.

As a reminder, when we attend events at Saint Teresa of Calcutta, we are asked to wear face masks that covers both the mouth and nose. For those unable to wear masks due to medical reasons, face shields are required. Please also be sure to observe physical distancing when here and conduct a "Self-health check" prior to coming. 

As you are aware, there are no public spaces that can guarantee a 100% virus free environment. However, if we all do our part by being mindful of our health and the wellbeing of others, we can continue to worship together and to enjoy each other’s company. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

 

Self-Health Check

If you answer “yes” to any one of these questions, please get well soon and visit us another day.

Dear Parishioners of Saint Teresa of Calcutta Parish,

Every year at this time we ask our parishioners to commit or recommit themselves to be good Stewards of our parish by returning a Stewardship of Treasure commitment card or pledging online.

Why do we make this once a year request?  The most important reason is that we recognize God has filled all of our hearts with a need to give to others.  When you make a pledge you are answering the call God gave you and we are then able to fund the many ministries, faith formation programs, sacraments, liturgies, celebrations, and costs of having a parish in which to practice our Catholic faith.

You are invited to review our finance council’s Annual Financial Report; we are a vibrant and faith-filled community because of your support! 

We know this past year has been difficult for many of our parishioners as well as the parish due to the pandemic. We face the reality that many of your fellow parishioners may not be able to support the parish financially this year, so your pledge is more important than ever and very much appreciated. 

Many parishioners wonder what the appropriate level of support for the parish might be – perhaps seeking a suggested dollar amount.  The best response is that our giving to the parish should make some difference in how we as people of faith experience life from day to day. Our giving should define our priorities, help the less fortunate, support the mission of Christ and His Church, and strengthen our relationship with God. 

Please review the pledge card you received in the mail or the Online Pledge Card and prayerfully discern what God is calling you to give back to Him from the generosity He has shown to you.  We ask that you please return your commitment card to the parish or pledge your support online at our website.

We are filled with gratitude for the generosity of parishioners and pray that God will continue to bless you abundantly. Thank you for supporting our parish!

Yours in Christ,
Fr. Frank Schuster
Pastor
