    The Spanish Emaús Women are having their

    retreat this weekend please pray for them.


    From the Pastor: Violence is a re- sponse we turn to very easily when we are upset. We become irritated, both- ered, ticked off, etc. by very common experiences. Then those feelings evolve into actions. For instance, how

    many of us can admit to feeling a desire to cause someone harm after an aggressive and dangerous maneuver by another driver on the road? Or, maybe it was at a sporting event when you became angry with a referee, an opposing player or coach, or at one of your team’s players who did not perform up to your expectations? Or, maybe you were feeling very tired after a long day of work and one of your own family members “pushed the wrong button?” I understand these feelings and reactions. Just the other evening I attended my nephew’s basket- ball game and became frustrated at the referees for their “bad calls.” I yelled out in frustration. Even now, a few days later, I am amazed at how quickly I moved from joy to frustration. There are no excuses for yelling in anger at the referee. Referees on every level have a hard job. They are not perfect. They may need some reminders from the coaches about what to watch for, but they do not need to hear my angry outbursts. We must not let a violent world, or a violence- oriented society, or own violent habits and history to determine our current behaviors. We are daughters and sons of God, sisters and brothers of Jesus the Christ. We are to be a peace-oriented People of God, prepared to reconcile with others. “To the person who strikes you on one cheek, offer the other one as well,” (Luke 6:29). Jesus was not inviting us to be passive. Note well, he is speak- ing to poor people who are accustomed to being de- graded by their “masters.” Author and theologian Walter Wink describes the dynamic as follows: The first hit was likely a backhanded slap with the right hand, an insult. To offer the other cheek meant the hitter would need to hit with the right fist. Such fighting was thought to be not fit for dignified people. Turning the other cheek was not passive, but rather required the hitter to recognize that the “inferior” was not going to accept this kind of treatment. It was like saying: I matter! Do not treat me poorly! I am one of God’s children, too!

    Peace, Fr. Andy

    This is the 13th and last part of our 13–part series which highlights the various parts of the devotion to

    Our Mother of Sorrows which we pray every Friday after Noon Mass with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament followed by Benediction.

    Sign of the Cross In the name of the Father, and of the Son,

    and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

    The Way of the Sorrowful Mother

    In the Sorrows of the Virgin Mary we see a reflection of the suffering and bitter anguish of the human Christ. Just as Mary accepted the total mystery of Christ into her life, so may we see in our sorrow, our fear, our humiliation, a dim, but real participation in His passion and death, recalling that if we wish to follow Him, we must “take up our cross” each day. Amen.
