Kolbe News St. Maximilian Kolbe Renewed Catholic Church 25th Sunday of Ordinary Time Year B
“You cannot acquire, so you quarrel and fight.” ~ James 4:2 Our international wars are personal conflicts are partially due to the fact that even our legitimate needs are sometimes not met, although the Lord has promised to provide all our needs, “our daily bread” (Mt 6:11). This is because His promise is often conditional upon our asking Him in prayer. The Lord states in His word: “You do not obtain because you do not ask” (Jas 4:2). This statement may puzzle us, for we recall asking the Lord to meet certain needs that we don’t see met. However, to get what we need, we must not only ask vocally but unselfishly (Jas 4:3). Selfish praying leaves us very needy and contentious.
Inside this issue: Mass Intentions
Cards of the Deck
Financial Pastor’s Notes
We are naturally selfish, and therefore trapped into depriving ourselves of our needs. The only way to have an unselfish heart is to get a new heart (see Ez 36:26), and Jesus is the only One Who can give us a new heart and a new life. So, without Jesus, we can do nothing (Jn 15:5). We can’t pray rightly or keep from fighting. Our need of all needs is total love for Jesus.

Now Forming “Cards of the Deck” Ministry The "Cards of the Deck" is a social club that we are forming right now by taken person’s information so we can plan a date for this group to meet. Anyone who is 50 years old or older is welcome to join us. We play bingo, cards, games, and enjoy each others’ company. Our plan for this group is to meet with our first meeting as a business meeting followed by bingo and then cards. Then the second meeting we celebrate the birthdays of our members during that month and then play cards and socialize. Then the third meeting we have a potluck where all the members bring a dish. After the potluck we play cards and socialize. The fourth meeting will be a Mass and offer any prayers and then play games. When there are five weeks in a month the Mass and prayers are scheduled for that day rather than the fourth Thursday. If you are seeking companionship and want to meet new people, Please email the Parish Office if you would like to be added to the list and be informed of all the dates and when this Ministry will start.

Our Belief We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God and inerrant in the original writings. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe that the lost and sinful man must be saved, and that man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We believe in and practice the holy ordinance of water baptism, which signifies the believer's death, burial, and resurrection into new life with Christ Jesus, and the regular celebration of Holy Communion as commanded by our Lord. We believe in the present ministry and baptism of the Holy Spirit. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; those that are saved into the resurrection of life and those that are unsaved into the resurrection of death. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Fact: ANGELS—FICTION AND FACT Fiction: Angels are like pixies, elves or leprechauns. It's fun to imagine they exist, but adults know they're not real. Fact: Oh, yes, they are. Cod created the spiritual, non-corporeal (bodiless) beings we call angels, explains the Catechism of the Catholic Church (nos. 328-336). The Church bases this teaching on both Scripture and Tradition. Each angel has intelligence and will, and each is a personal and immortal creature. In other words, each heavenly angel is a unique being who has chosen to love and serve God, its Creator. It is a being who will never die. Fiction: All angels are wonderful and will help us humans. Fact: Some are, some aren't. Some do, some don't. Heavenly angels—"good angels"—are enjoying great popularity these days, but their counterparts—"bad angels"— tend to be forgotten or dismissed as primitive superstition or childish fairy tales. But the Church teaches that not all angels chose to do God's will. "'The devil and other demons were indeed created naturally good by God, but they became evil by their own doing,"' the Catechism says (no. 391), quoting from the writings of the Fourth Lateran Council (held in the year 1215). Some angels sinned. We don't know exactly what they did wrong, but their "fall" was a result of radically and irrevocably rejecting God and His reign. And since the beginning of humanity's time on earth, the devil— immortal and powerful, but not all-powerful like God—has been encouraging human beings to also reject their Creator. No human being has been spared this tempting, not even Jesus (Mt 4:1-11).

Mission To minister to hearths through love and acceptance and the word of God, by uniting the Body of Christ thru Prayer and Worship within all we meet, so we can meet in Heaven.
In the coming weeks we celebrate a Feast Day of St. Vincent de Paul, a saint that was born to poor parents and became a priest but also founded a society to help others. In today’s world we tend to forget about those that are suffering from all points of life. We oversee those people as trash or unknown. We leave them on the side to beg and hope. We think we are doing a great job by just driving off and looking at them. We as Christian should help! How?, you might ask. Just a simple have a good day or here is some water is helping. You never know what will happen if you offer just one simple act of kindness to another stranger. You don’t have to give them money that way you know that the drink or food you give will be used. What are you waiting for? Let’s also think back to our days growing up when we had problems and needed a few things we always walked next door to ask to borrow something and vise versa.
The stranger you help could just
be Christ testing you. Don’t give into hate or evil when you know you want to offer a hand. JMJ +M.J.
