VALUES TO LIVE BY Today’s scriptures contain some catch phrases that are still quite familiar in our world: “All is vanity,” and “Eat, drink, and be merry” are both scriptural in origin. In the same way that it is easy to pray last week’s Lord’s Prayer thoughtlessly, it is easy to let the potent passages of scripture that are built on these common sayings glide right off our slick ears. Last week’s scriptures instructed us to listen attentively to the Lord, so that we might pray carefully. Our listening and our prayer are intimately connected. In the same way, this week we learn that our values and our living are connected as well. It has become quite common to ask, “Do you own your possessions or do they own you?” Like the familiar maxims from today’s readings, we might be tempted to quote this saying flippantly, and think that in the quoting of it we have truly considered it, perhaps lived it. Not true, Qoheleth, Paul, and Jesus tell us today. It is not wrong to treasure or cherish things of earth or of our own humanity; it is only wrong when those things we cherish are not of God, are not of the self-giving Christ. © Copyright, J. S.

Safety tips for children traveling alone Take time to discuss appropriate behavior with your child before he or she boards an airplane alone. If another passenger acts in an inappropriate way, be sure that your child knows to inform a flight attendant or other airline representative. Inappropriate behavior on the part of other passengers includes rude, offensive, or threatening comments; inappropriate touching; inappropriate conversations; taking food or other items away from the child; or other behavior that makes the child uncomfortable or fearful. In addition, inappropriate behavior would include any attempt to elicit personal information about the child. Make sure that you child understands that no passenger they meet needs to know things such as their full name, their home address, their telephone number, or where they are going. For particular help, you may call Assistance Ministry at 213 637 7650 or Melissa Ager at 323.660.0034.

Registrations for 1st & 2nd year First Communion and Confirmation 1 & 2 Will end on August 25th! Please pick up a registration package and forms from the parish office.
