LENTEN PROJECT AND VISIT TO CRISTO REY DEL UNIVERSO PAROCHIAL SCHOOL I take this moment to express my deepest gratitude to the families of Incarnation Catholic Church, Pastor, the Very Rev. Michael, Fr. Philip and Fr. Jairo, as well as all who collaborated in the big task of the Lenten Project to benefit our Cristo Rey Parochial School. This gesture has revolutionized our community, whose inhabitants feel supported by your efforts in the solution of some of the needs that would have otherwise gone unsatisfied had it not been for your authentic gesture of love in Jesus Christ and those in need. The children, the teachers and I, feel extremely grateful to the community of Incarnation for a most beautiful gesture of love and generosity. We continue to offer our prayers for the families that have made possible this generous contribution. Receive my warm regards, in thanksgiving for your kindness, Rev. Fr. José Luis Rosario Núñez Pastor, Parroquia Cristo Rey del Universo Exec. Dir. Cristo Rey del Universo Escuela Parroquial

Los niños, el cuerpo de profesores y mi persona, nos sentimos sumamente agradecidos de la comunidad de Encarnación por su gesto de amorosa generosidad. Continuamos orando por las familias que han hecho posible esta gran obra. Con mi más profundo agradecimiento, les saluda, Rev.

FR. MICHAEL’S VISIT TO CRISTO REY CATHOLIC SCHOOL

Fr. Michael had the privilege of sharing a delicious and abundant lunch with the children of the Cristo Rey Parochial School. As you can see he also served lunch. The children thought that was awesome, especially since he was also offering healthy portions and even seconds! The children, teachers, local guests and collaborators thought this was the most significant event that the community had ever been involved in since they can remember. All this and more, thanks to your generosity through the 2014 Lenten Project. More to come in other issues of our bulletin.

Fifth Sunday of Easter

May 18, 2014

Quarterly Report to the Parish The results presented at this time represent three quarter fiscal period ending on March 31, 2014. Net Income shows a deficit of almost $25,000.

Quarterly Report on Parish Treasure

Revenues

Three Quarters Ending 3/31/2014 Budget (3/4 of Annual Total) Actual vs Budget

Most weeks if you look at the bulletin, you will see that we fall short of our weekly collection goal of $23,000. However it should be noted that these results do not reflect collections taken over the usually strong Easter weekend nor is the impact of the carnival reflected in any way. These two positive forces should make a balanced budget for the remainder of the year a good possibility.

We keep the church on an even keel financially by managing our expenses in response to our income. When we did the budget, we identified several projects including the programmed replacement of obsolete air conditioning equipment and addressing the sound system problems in the church that would be addressed if collections would improve. We have been unable to address either of these projects thus far.

Another positive note not reflected in any of these numbers is your response to the Annual Pastoral Appeal (APA) for 201415. You have already pledged $167,000 toward our goal of $199,667 for the new campaign year. These numbers will not be reflected in the financials until our September results are reported.

Revenues The first collection ran behind our $23,000 per week parish goal with a 10% budget shortfall for three quarters. Other Revenues are low due to the timing of the carnival results which are not yet included.

If you have any specific questions regarding parish financials, do not hesitate to contact me at the parish office or by e-mail at phunter@icctampa.org. Paul Hunter

Expenses

Expenses Utility costs ran higher than expected due to a Freon leak impacting the church Air Conditioners which has been fixed. Maintenance expenditures continue to be deferred in response to the shortfall in revenue. Net Income Net Income for three quarters half shows a deficit of almost $25,000. Expense controls particularly on plant maintenance keep us close to a balanced budget. Mortgage Balance The outstanding balance on the loan that was taken out to rebuild the church and replace the roof is $133,648 as of March 31, 2014.

Church of the Incarnation

813-885-7861 Fifth Sunday of Easter May 18, 2014 “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” — John 14:6

Domingo 18 de Mayo de 2014. Quinto Domingo de Pascua Reflexionando la Palabra de Dios Cuando Jesús nos dice: “no pierdan la paz”, nos quiere infundir aquella serenidad que sentimos cuando estamos libres de preocupaciones interiores y de presiones venidas de fuera; la tranquilidad que experimentamos cuando nada nos turba mirando al pasado, nada nos oprime en el presente y vemos el futuro claro y positivo. Lo que Jesús pretende, cuando nos invita a no perder la paz, es iluminar nuestro futuro. No se trata evidentemente de nuestro futuro inmediato, por ejemplo, nuestra salud, el éxito de la empresa que traemos entre manos, o de nuestra relación con la familia y los amigos. El futuro al que se refiere Jesús es nuestro destino final, el buen resultado de la totalidad de nuestra vida, nuestra salvación espiritual. Si pensamos en la corta duración de las cosas de este mundo y en lo poco que valen; mayormente si atendemos a que están siempre colgadas de un hilo, entenderemos mejor que nuestra mirada debería estar puesta principalmente en el éxito final de nuestro peregrinaje. Orientar bien la vida, saber hacia dónde vamos y confiar alcanzar aquella meta, es fuente perdurable de serenidad y bienestar. Es lo que nos propone Jesús. Una disposición interior de esta categoría se llama confianza. Vivir firmemente en la confianza del diario acontecer es poseerlo de antemano, es disfrutarlo desde el mismo momento en que confiamos conseguirlo. Por ello Jesús nos dice: “No pierdan la paz; si creen en Dios, crean también en mí. En la casa de mi Padre hay muchas habitaciones. Cuando me vaya y les prepare un sitio, volveré y los llevaré conmigo, para que donde yo esté, estén también ustedes”. Para ir a la casa del Padre hay un solo camino: “Yo soy el camino, y la verdad, y la vida. Nadie va al Padre, sino por mí”. Jesús esta puesto delante de la humanidad entera para que se haga posible y fácil el camino de acceso. La imagen del Buen Pastor nos expresa y nos muestra este don de Dios: Él es el líder, el guía, el camino. Su promesa es clara y concreta: “Volveré y los llevaré conmigo, para que donde estoy yo, estén también ustedes”. Y, porque Jesús es el único camino de salvación, para los que no quieren conocerle ni seguirlo, se ha convertido en piedra de tropezar y en roca de estrellarse. Somos conscientes de que lo que estamos comentando es un misterio, pero parece claro que, o creemos en Jesús, o no tenemos parte en Él. Verdaderamente, todo lo que hace referencia a Dios y a nuestra relación con Él va más allá de toda reflexión humana. En definitiva, la resurrección de Jesús es el sello indiscutible del proyecto de salvación de Dios para toda la humanidad. Necesitamos disponer nuestra vida, nuestro corazón, nuestros sentimientos para hacer que el Señor Jesús se convierta en nuestro camino, nuestra verdad y nuestra vida, para que no perdamos la paz que solo Él nos da. P. Jairo 9|

Para Reflexionar Debo ser fuerte sin ser rudo, ser amable sin ser débil. Aprender con orgullo sin arrogancia, aprender a ser gentil sin ser suave. Ser humilde sin ser tímido, ser valioso sin ser agresivo, ser agradecido sin ser servil, meditar sin ser flojo. Por eso Señor te pido: Dame grandeza para entender, capacidad para retener, método para aprender. Sutileza para interpretar, gracia para hablar. Acierto al empezar, dirección al progresar, Y perfección al acabar. COMIDAS TRADICIONALES PARA TI ¡No se olviden!

Empanadas, Yuca y Papas Rellenas, Sándwiches Cubanos. Mayo 18, 2014 después de las Misas de las 10:30am, 12:00pm y 1:30pm. Todas las donaciones serán para nuestra Iglesia.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE Después de la muerte de Jesús, los discípulos habían regresado a su antiguo oficio de la pesca para así ganarse la vida, pues no sabían qué hacer. El Jesús resucitado tuvo que pescárselos de nuevo. En su tercera aparición, Jesús pidió a los discípulos que lanzaran sus redes al mar. Estos sacaron 153 peces del mar, número representativo de todas las naciones del mundo. Esta pesca milagrosa que tuvo lugar en Galilea, nos recuerda otra pesca milagrosa hecha en Brasil. En 1716 tres pescadores pescaban en el Río Paraiba y al lanzar la red al agua sacaron una estatua de la Virgen de la Concepción. Después, la pesca fue tan abundante que por poco hundía el barco. La virgencita de 36 centímetros había pasado muchos años en el agua por lo cual había tomado el rico color oscuro de muchos latinoamericanos. La devoción a Nuestra Señora de Aparecida creció hasta que la familia que la había encontrado la dio al pueblo para que en 1745 se construyera para ella una capilla pública. De esta manera, Aparecida pasó de las redes a los corazones, dando una rica pesca de personas para su Hijo. —Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
