Fifth Sunday of Easter - May 22, 2011 “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” — John 14:6 VOCATION Roman Catholics in the United States spend a good deal of time speaking of “vocation” and the manner in which each of us discerns our vocation for life. In today’s apostolic letter, however, Peter gives us the “cornerstone” of our vocation, the description of what each of us is called to first and foremost by our baptism. He describes our vocation as “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of [God’s] own, so that you may announce the praises” of Christ, who called us out of darkness into light (1 Peter 2:9). All of us, no matter what path our life’s vocation may take us down, have been chosen by God, made holy, and anointed as priests in the high priesthood of Christ through baptism. All of this, so that we may announce the praises of Christ. Vocation is given for proclamation at home, in the workplace—wherever life takes us—in service, in word, and in sacrament. © Copyright, J.

Congratulations to Fr. Michael on his 25th Anniversary of Ordination this week! HIS VOCATION STORY...

Ordained on May 24, 1986 by Bishop Howard James Hubbard at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Albany, NY.

The example and life of St. Francis of Assisi drew him to enter the Conventual Franciscan Order in 1975

Fr. Michael celebrated his first Mass in Nassau, NY. Pictured on the top right with his sister, AnnMarie and brother Jim. To the bottom right with his mother Teresa & father Ted.

Fr. Michael served in the foreign missions in Mexico...traveling at times by mule and sleeping on the floor HOW DID FR. MICHAEL END UP IN FLORIDA?

...marriage preparation took only a day! Page 6

He would vacation in St. Pete Beach and would help out at St. John Vianney Parish where he received the call to “Stay with us…” and serve. Fr. Michael was incardinated into the Diocese of St. Petersburg on April 1, 2003

PILDORITAS DE FE DEL PADRE DIEGO MAYO: MES DE MARÍA

Reflexionar en los principales misterios de la vida de María Reflexionar implica hacer un esfuerzo con la mente, la imaginación y, también, con el corazón, para profundizar en las virtudes que la Virgen vivió a lo largo de su vida. Podemos meditar en cómo María se comportó, por ejemplo, durante:

∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗

La Anunciación La Visita a su prima Isabel El Nacimiento de Cristo La Presentación del Nino Jesús en el templo El Niño Jesús perdido en el templo Las Bodas de Caná María al pie de la cruz

Recordar y honrar a María como Madre de todos los hombres. María nos cuida siempre y nos ayuda en todo lo que necesitemos. Ella nos ayuda a vencer la tentación y conservar el estado de gracia y la amistad con Dios para poder llegar al Cielo. María es la Madre de la Iglesia.

Reflexionar en las principales virtudes de la Virgen María. María era una mujer de profunda vida de oración, vivía siempre cerca de Dios. Era una mujer humilde, es decir, sencilla; era generosa, se olvidaba de sí misma para darse a los demás; tenía gran caridad, amaba y ayudaba a todos por igual; era servicial, atendía a José y a Jesús con amor; vivía con alegría; era paciente con su familia; sabía aceptar la voluntad de Dios en su vida.

Rezar en familia las oraciones especialmente dedicadas a María. La Iglesia nos ofrece bellas oraciones como la del Ángelus (que se acostumbra rezar a mediodía), el Regina Caeli, La Consagración a María, y el Santo Rosario.

Recordar las apariciones de la Virgen. En Fátima, Portugal; en Lourdes, Francia y en el Tepeyac, Méjico, La Virgen de Guadalupe. La Virgen entrega diversos mensajes, todos relacionados con el amor que Ella nos tiene a nosotros, sus hijos. ©www.catholic.net

Alabado seas, mi Señor, por el hermano viento y por el aire y la nube y el cielo sereno y todo tiempo, por todos ellos a tus criaturas das sustento. Alabado seas, mi Señor, por la hermana agua, la cual es muy útil y humilde y preciosa y casta. Alabado seas, mi Señor, por el hermano fuego, por el cual iluminas la noche, y es bello y alegre y vigoroso y fuerte. Alabado seas, mi Señor, por la hermana nuestra la madre tierra, la cual nos sostiene y gobierna y produce diversos frutos con coloridas flores y hierbas. —San Francisco de Asís

Muchas veces nos vemos también confrontados por la realidad de las diferencias y divisiones en las comunidades por razones de lengua, cultura, costumbres o clase social. Una buena comunidad busca maneras de centrar la mirada en lo que es esencial a la fe, mientras que respeta los valores y tradiciones de cada comunidad o grupo social.

30 de mayo ♦ San Fernando Rey Conocido en la historia de España como Fernando el Santo, su reinado estuvo caracterizado por la expansión de la nación. Era un hombre justo que practicó la peidad, la prudencia, y el heroísmo. Murió en 1252. ¿Has considerado alguna vez tu vocación cristiana como asociada a la política? ¿Piensas que quizás podrías trabajar por un mundo más justo desde ese campo?
