GIVEN MUCH “Much will be required of the person entrusted with much” (Luke 12:48). Whew! At least the Lord hasn’t entrusted me with much! Thank goodness that the work of the reign of God on earth has been entrusted to somebody else. This must be the “good news” of today’s Gospel, right? Wrong! In the mentality that has come to be known as “keeping up with the Joneses” we can gear ourselves toward a comparison with those who have more or who have been given more, even by God. Unfortunately, nowhere does Jesus say: “Not much will be expected of those who have been given only a little bit.” Each of us, in our own way, has been given something, some gift or treasure that we can put toward the work of the reign of God. This is the vocation of Christian discipleship. Perhaps others seem to have been given more; evaluating this is not the disciple’s concern. The concern of each of us in the vocation for which we have been chosen is to take what we have been given, and consecrate it for the continued in-breaking of God’s kingdom of justice, joy, peace, and beauty. Then will we come to realize that we have indeed been given much. © Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.

Report inappropriate or illegal content on the Internet One of the main reasons that children do not report the inappropriate content they find online is fear of punishment from parents. If you let them know that it is not their fault if they come across an inappropriate site, they will be more willing to come to you when it happens. If your children ever show you a site that contains illegal behavior, such as pornographic images of children, contact your Internet Service Provider and the CyberTipline at: For particular help, you may call Assistance Ministry at 213 637 7650 or Melissa Ager at 323.660.0034 ext. 15

Next Sunday, August 15th, is a Holy Day of Obligation for the Assumption or the Blessed Virgin Mary. BE NOT DECEIVED Do not be disturbed by the clamor of this world, which passes like a shadow. Do not let the false delights of a deceptive world deceive you. —St. Clare

Como Denunciar el Contenido Inadecuado o Ilegal en el Internet Una de las razones principales que los niños no denuncian el contenido inadecuado que encuentran en el Internet es por miedo a recibir castigo de los padres. Si usted les hace saber a sus hijos que ellos no tienen la culpa si se cruzan con sitios inadecuados, ellos estarían más dispuestos a comunicarle a usted cuando esto sucede. Si sus hijos le demuestran algún sitio que contenga comportamiento ilegal, tal como imágenes pornográficas de niños, comuníquese con su proveedor de su servicio de Internet y al CyberTipline: Para obtener ayuda, llame a la Oficina del Ministerio de Ayuda al 213 637 7650.
