Sunday, August 1


Dear Sisters and Brothers in Jesus Christ,

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life;
whoever comes to me will never hunger,
and whoever believes in me will never thirst.”

Bread is necessary to survive. Well, we all work for a slice of bread, and it is true, if no bread, no life. But, I asked myself, ‘am I really hungry for this bread or am I mistaken for something else? If I am hungry for this bread, why am I not satisfied even if I have plenty of them on my table? What is that I am really hungry for? What kind of hunger is mine? Am I confused?  Why am I not satisfied, even if I am full? Yes, I am confused. The bread that I eat now is not the one that gives me joy and life. I am on the wrong feeding. My crave is for eternal life and my hunger is the hunger of my soul and not of my body.  So it is this hunger of my soul that I must satisfy and nothing else. Otherwise, I am eternally doomed. 

Now I know what my hunger is. But how do I satisfy this my deepest longing?   What should I do or where should I turn for help? There is something wrong with me. That is why I forgot to ask my Lord. My Lord knows everything. I want to see my Lord. I looked through my window. “Lord, why are you delaying coming to me? Lord where are you?”, my heart sobbed. I should have known what I hungered for.  I should have known the bread I was craving for. My hunger was for my Lord whom I ignored for a while. Only my Lord can satisfy my inner hunger. Now where should I go seeking for my Lord from whom I walked away? It is too late that I realized that only my Lord could satisfy every need of mine.  I remember, when my Lord was with me, I never felt hungry. Now I feel very sad. Why did I walk away from my Lord? In my ignorance I left my Lord. I want to see my Lord. What I want is not the bread from this dust but the bread from heaven, the true bread that gives us life. My bread is my Lord. 

I miss you, my Lord; how my heart is shattered to bits because you are not in me anymore, my Lord. Yes, it is time for me to stop wandering away from my Lord who loves me so dearly. Lord, it hurts me to pretend I am fine, when deep inside I am dying. I want to live, my Lord. “My dear son,” my Lord called me. “If I you are not hungry, the bread is of no use to you.  Stay hungry for me. I am your bread”, my Lord gave me a hug.  I missed that hug for a while. It was my mistake. I am the one who walked away from my Lord. Now we are friends again.  I am satisfied.

‘Remain a friend of God. Then your bread will be on your table, eat it and live forever,’ I said to myself as I was resting in the lap of my Lord.

Don’t forget that Saturday, August 14th is our Day of Prayer.

Let us spend a day, before the Assumption of Our Blessed Mother, in our Church, before the Holy Eucharist, praying together; starting with 8.30 morning Mass and ending with Holy Benediction at 3.45. Let us pray for our family and for the whole world; let us remember our dear ones, the sick and the deceased brothers and sisters. The Lord invites us. “Can’t you stay awake with me for a while?”

My love and God’s blessings,
Father Sebastian Earthedath, MST


 

Queridos hermanos y hermanas en Jesucristo:

Jesús les dijo: “Yo soy el pan de vida;
el que a mí viene, nunca tendrá hambre,
y el que cree en mí, no tendrá sed jamás ”.

El pan es necesario para sobrevivir. Bueno, todos trabajamos por una rebanada de pan, y es verdad, si no hay pan, no hay vida. Pero, me pregunté, '¿tengo mucha hambre de este pan o me confunden con otra cosa? Si tengo hambre de este pan, ¿por qué no estoy satisfecho incluso si tengo muchos en mi mesa? ¿Qué es lo que realmente tengo hambre? ¿Qué tipo de hambre es la mía? Estoy confundido? ¿Por qué no estoy satisfecho, incluso si estoy lleno? Sí, estoy confundido. El pan que como ahora no es el que me da alegría y vida. Estoy en la alimentación incorrecta. Mi anhelo es la vida eterna y mi hambre es el hambre de mi alma y no de mi cuerpo. Así que es esta hambre de mi alma lo que debo satisfacer y nada más. De lo contrario, estoy condenado eternamente.

Ahora sé cuál es mi hambre. Pero, ¿cómo puedo satisfacer este anhelo más profundo? ¿Qué debo hacer o dónde debo acudir en busca de ayuda? Hay algo mal en mí. Por eso olvidé preguntarle a mi Señor. Mi Señor lo sabe todo. Quiero ver a mi Señor. Miré a través de mi ventana. “Señor, ¿por qué demoras en venir a mí? Señor, ¿dónde estás? ”, Sollozaba mi corazón. Debería haber sabido lo que ansiaba. Debería haber sabido el pan que ansiaba. Mi hambre era por mi Señor, a quien ignoré por un tiempo. Solo mi Señor puede satisfacer mi hambre interior. Ahora, ¿adónde debo ir en busca de mi Señor de quien me alejé? Es demasiado tarde para darme cuenta de que solo mi Señor podría satisfacer todas mis necesidades. Recuerdo que cuando mi Señor estaba conmigo, nunca sentí hambre. Ahora me siento muy triste. ¿Por qué me alejé de mi Señor? En mi ignorancia dejé a mi Señor. Quiero ver a mi Señor. Lo que quiero no es el pan de este polvo, sino el pan del cielo, el verdadero pan que nos da la vida. Mi pan es mi Señor.

Te extraño, mi Señor; cómo se me hace añicos el corazón porque ya no estás en mí, mi Señor. Sí, es hora de que deje de alejarme de mi Señor que me ama tanto. Señor, me duele fingir que estoy bien, cuando en el fondo me estoy muriendo. Quiero vivir, mi Señor. “Mi querido hijo”, me llamó mi Señor. “Si no tienes hambre, el pan no te sirve. Quédate hambriento de mí. Yo soy tu pan”, me abrazó mi Señor. Extrañé ese abrazo por un tiempo. Fue mi error. Yo soy el que se alejó de mi Señor. Ahora volvemos a ser amigos. Estoy satisfecho.

"Sigue siendo un amigo de Dios. Entonces tu pan estará en tu mesa, cómelo y vive para siempre ', me dije a mí mismo mientras descansaba en el regazo de mi Señor.

 No olvide el sábado 14 de agosto; es nuestro día de oración

Pasemos un día, antes de la Asunción de Nuestra Santísima Madre, en nuestra Iglesia, antes de la Sagrada Eucaristía, orando juntos; comenzando con la misa de la mañana a las 8.30 y terminando con la Santa Bendición a las 3.45. Oremos por nuestra familia y por el mundo entero; recordemos a nuestros seres queridos, los enfermos y los hermanos fallecidos. El Señor nos invita. "¿No puedes quedarte despierto conmigo un rato?"

Mi amor y las bendiciones de Dios,
Padre Sebastian Earthedath, MST

A Welcome Message from our Pastor, Father Sebastian

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Jesus Christ, 

We warmly welcome all of you to the first Catholic church in West Pasco County. Together with “Our Blessed Mother” we gather at the Table of her Son, Jesus to get nourished and to proclaim His message of love in words and deeds.

We invite you to be a part of our loving Community being present at our Eucharistic celebrations and other events. Every First Friday at 5.00 p.m. is our Family Dinner Time in the Parish Hall. We gather to know one another and to build up new friendships. The third Sunday of the month is the St. Lorenzo 5 Star Breakfast Buffet.  Dates are published in the bulletin.  You must try it as it is the "best in town".

Please visit this magnificent Church adorned with colorful stained glass entrance doors, windows, Carillon Tower, Stations of the Cross and the Doves of Peace; stay here in solitude to get blessings upon you and your family through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother.

We look forward to seeing you!  May God bless you.
