July 24, 2011 A SHARE IN GOD’S KINGDOM Today concludes a three-week series of Gospel texts in which we have listened to a total of seven parables about the kingdom. The believer is asked to consider the request that God made of Solomon in today’s first reading: “Ask something of me and I will give it to you” (1 Kings 3:5). Today’s parables about the treasure buried in the field and the pearl of great price should prompt us to answer, “A share in your kingdom, O God!” Today we discover that the kingdom of God is beyond value, a priceless treasure. Unfortunately, our culture bombards us with things that it believes are priceless treasures— the bigger and better SUVs, anti-aging and anti-balding creams and salves, miracle diets, and so much more. Having a share in God’s kingdom and helping to bring about that kingdom are the greatest treasures that we can ever hope to gain. © Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.

PARTICIPACIÓN EN EL REINO Hoy concluye la tercera semana de una serie de textos del Evangelio en que hemos escuchado un total de siete parábolas sobre el Reino. Se pide al creyente que considere el pedido que Dios hace a Salomón en la Primera Lectura de hoy: “pídeme lo que quieras, y yo te lo daré” (1 Reyes 3:5). Las parábolas de hoy sobre el tesoro enterrado en el campo y la perla de gran precio nos debería empujar a responder: “¡Una participación en tu Reino, oh Dios!”. Hoy descubrimos que el Reino de Dios es invalorable, un tesoro que no tiene precio. Desafortunadamente, nuestra cultura nos bombardea con cosas que considera tesoros inapreciables: vehículo utilitario deportivo, cremas antiarrugas y contra la calvicie, dietas milagrosas, y mucho, mucho más. Tener una participación en el Reino de Dios y contribuir a la venida del Reino son los mayores tesoros que jamás podamos esperar ganar. © Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.

Registration Day: Sunday, August 14th from 9am to 12 noon Classes begin: Monday, August 15, 2011– Friday, June 22, 2012 DID YOU KNOW? Road to Priesthood Involves a Rigorous Formation Process `

Seminary formation involves much more than academic study. Prior to ordination, a candidate for priesthood goes through a lengthy evaluation period, including an internship during which he lives in a rectory and works with priests, staff and parishioners. During this time, the candidate is judged as to his suitability to be a priest. No one is ordained unless the staff of St. John’s Seminary, including the lay faculty and formation advisers, concludes that the candidate has attained an emotional, psychological and sexual maturity appropriate for his age and for the celibate life of a priest.

El Camino al Sacerdocio Involucra Un Proceso de Formación Riguroso La formación en el seminario requiere más que los estudios académicos. Antes de la ordenación, el candidato al sacerdocio debe pasar por un largo proceso de evaluación, incluyendo un internado durante el cual él vive en la rectoría y trabaja con sacerdotes, empleados y feligreses de la parroquia. Durante este tiempo el candidato es evaluado sobre su compatibilidad para ser sacerdote. Nadie es ordenado sin que el personal del Seminario de St. John, incluyendo el personal laico y los consejeros de formación, concluya que el candidato haya madurado de un modo apropiado a su edad emocionalmente, psicológicamente, y en su sexualidad, y para la vida de celibato de un sacerdote. Para más información visite la página de Internet www.la-archdiocese.org y oprima el botón de “Vocaciones”. Para obtener ayuda, llame a la Oficina del Ministerio de Ayuda al (213) 637-7650.
