    Dear brothers and sisters,

    Peace in the Lord Jesus Christ!

    This Sunday's liturgy focuses on our vigilant faith. We are reminded that we must be like faithful servants who stay awake waiting for their master. We need to open our hearts and minds so that we shall be aware of the Lord's coming into our lives, be it moments of prayer and recollection, in active service to our needy brothers and sisters, in the monotony of ordinary experiences, or in dra- matic events of our lives. We know that God has wonder- ful things in store for us. Bishop Larry Silva recently sent a recorded message of thanks for the success of the Grateful Hearts Campaign. We will have the chance to view this message during Mass this weekend. In line with this, I am happy to an- nounce to you that this week we have received the first installment of the Campaign amounting to $48,344.43. Many thanks to all our parishioners for supporting this Campaign.

    God bless you, Fr. Samuel E. Loterte, SSS

    Welcome Visitors To Our

    Reflection                                                 by Father Greg Friedman, O.F.M.  

    Mission Statement: Centered on the Word of God and the Eucharist we gather as a commu- nity of disciples of Jesus Christ as we seek fullness of life. Blessed with many cultures and gifted with the Hawaiian spirit of Aloha we pledge to share our heritage and our faith, and commit ourselves to the full development of our people.

    With Saint Joseph as our patron we offer our gift of self for the greater glory of God.

    August 8, 2010 | 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time (C)    Wis 18:6‐9; Ps 33:1, 12, 18‐19, 20‐22 ; Heb 11:1‐2, 8‐19 or Heb 11:1‐2, 8‐12 ; Lk 12:32‐48  In my hometown of Cincinnati we have an unfinished subway. Begun early in the twentieth century, it consists of a couple of stations, and some miles of tunnels. It was abandoned before train tracks were even installed, and probably will never be used for its original purpose. We Cincinnatians like to joke about it, but in the late 1950's and '60's the unfinished subway did serve an unexpected purpose. For a time, during those years when we all feared that an atomic war might break out, part of the abandoned subway tunnels were outfitted to be a fallout shelter, complete with beds and supplies of food and water. It was an attempt at preparedness that, fortunately, was never tested. Today's Gospel is about preparedness, and having our priorities straight. It's a message Saint Luke intended for his community to hear. They lived some thirty or forty years after the time of Jesus. Perhaps they were becoming complacent. Luke wanted them to hear Jesus' stern words about being prepared for the Master's return. He also wanted them to hear Christ's admonition about priorities. The leaders in Luke's commu- nity were especially to pay attention: When more is entrusted to you, more will be ex- pected. These Gospel truths shouldn't be buried away like Cincinnati's unfinished sub- way. Let's allow them to live in our hearts every day.
