June 20, 2021 - Humility of God
Last week at the Sunday 7 pm Mass, I preached in Spanish about the "HUMILITY OF GOD". Talking in my imperfect Spanish about our "little" miracle of the Eucharist at OLHOC was not easy (a humbling experience). Just one hour before the Mass, the Holy Spirit led me to share another "little" miracle in my life, a 4-page LETTER I received from a LIVING SAINT in 1978 ...a letter that changed my life.
In earlier occasions, I have spoken about my personal encounter with MOTHER TERESA in Calcutta when I was living next door in Dakha, Bangladesh. I have even shown the original 4-page letter she wrote me...

In the Storm: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time
33 Day Consecration to St Jospeh started on Wednesday, May 19th,
ending on Father’s Day, Sunday June 20.
You can follow along on YouTube with Father Alain and Father Ben daily
“With the phrase “guardian of the mystery of God” used to describe St. Joseph’s role in salvation history, Pope St. John Paul II has left us with a sure point of departure as we begin our 33-Day Consecration to St. Joseph. It is for us, all of us, to become a new creation, to become people who, having been knit together by the Holy Spirit, are now focused and bidden to draw life from the Mystery of God, from the mystery made flesh in the person of Jesus Christ, the one who bids us to come after him, called to become faithful guardians of the mystery of God. “
— Bishop Gerard Battersby

Memorare to St. Joseph
Remember, O most chaste spouse of the Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who implored your help and sought your intercession were left unassisted.
Full of confidence in your power I fly unto you and beg your protection. Despise not O Guardian of the Redeemer my humble supplication, but in your bounty, hear and answer me. Amen

HELP KEEP OUR CHURCH CLEAN
Since last year, OLHOC cut back on many of the services we use to pay for. Due to financial restraints, the lawn maintenance is all done by volunteers, we no longer have a staff person to help out with the facilities, and we cut back on our cleaning services to once a week. Please do your part in helping to keep our church clean.
AYUDA A MANTENER LIMPIA
Desde el año pasado, nuestra iglesia redujo muchos los servicios que usamos y pagamos. Debido a las restricciones financieras, el mantenimiento del césped es hecho por voluntarios, ya no tenemos personal de mantenimiento para ayudar con las instalaciones, y recortamos nuestros servicios de limpieza a una vez por semana. Por favor haga su parte en ayudar a mantener nuestra iglesia limpia.
