 (Reflection on Sunday Gospel)

"They would not come to the feast!"

What can a royal wedding party tell us about God's kingdom? One of the most beautiful images used in the Scriptures to depict what heaven is like is the wedding celebration and royal feast given by the King for his newly-wed son and bride. Whatever grand feast we can imagine on earth, heaven is the feast of all feasts because the Lord of heaven and earth invites us to the most important banquet of all - not simply as bystanders or guests - but as members of Christ's own body, his bride the church! The last book in the Bible ends with an invitation to the wedding feast of the Lamb - the Lord Jesus who offered his life as an atoning sacrifice for our sins and who now reigns as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The Spirit and the Bride say, Come! (Revelations 22:17).  The Lord Jesus invites us to be united with himself in his heavenly kingdom of peace and righteousness.

Living Catholic in the 808:

God Condemns Domestic VIolence

By: Kristina M. DeNeve,  Adult Faith Formation Coordinator Diocese of Honolulu

Leaving Akamu with his aunt, Evangeline made her way to the hospital to have her jaw wired shut and her face stitched at the emergency room.  By the time she got home almost a day later, her weariness was overwhelming; all she wanted to do was to lie next to her baby.  Two-year old Akamu, still sucking a pacifier, kept touching and softly stroking her severe “ow-wees.”  Even he knew something was wrong.

Absolutely, our faith recognizes that marriage is indissoluble, that “what God has joined together, no human being must separate” Matthew 19:6.  We are called, esp. in today’s throwaway society, to live out the marriage sacrament for our entire lives.  The human communion of a husband and wife in the sacrament of Matrimony “is confirmed, purified and completed by communion in Jesus Christ”  (Catechism of the Catholic Church, CCC 1644).

But, God did not intend for us to be abused! Not sexually, physically, emotionally or spiritually.  The commandments forbid killing and Jesus denounced even having enough anger to want to harm another (Mt. 5: 21-22).

And if someone wants to harm us?  “Love toward oneself remains a fundamental principle of morality.  Therefore it is legitimate to insist on respect for one’s own right to life” (CCC 2264). Next week’s bulletin will share exactly what Canon Law says about this issue.      


SJC MULTIPURPOSE CENTER   A couple of weeks ago Fr. Jaime and Fr. Drexel pleaded with you to reflect and pray if you could commit financially to support the construction of the Multi-Purpose Center.  If you have made a sacrifice to our program, we thank you for your support.  If you are a parishioner and have not yet made a commitment, we ask that you prayerfully consider a sacrifice to help us achieve our goal.  If you are not a parishioner, but support our vision and goals, we would greatly appreciate any financial support you can provide.   MAHALO!     

FOODLAND  You can also contribute to the Multi-Purpose building at checkout.  Present your Maika'i card (or provide your number) and inform the cashier that you would like to make a donation to ST. JOSEPH CHURCH MULTI-PURPOSE CENTER PROJECT , code number 77274.  If you do not have a Maika'i card/number, you may request to establish one.  Your donation will be added to your grocery purchase total.  You may donate up to $249 per organization; any portion exceeding $249 will not be matched.  The amount you donate and the name of our organization will appear on your receipt.  Any donation must be payable to Foodland or Sack N Save.   
 

The St. Joseph Youth Ministry  invites all High School students in Grades 9 thru 12 are invited to come and join us for food, fun and fellowship every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. in the 5th grade classroom. Should you have any questions, For more info contact Jason & Diane Jacinto, Youth Moderators at 572-4623 or by email: st.jcyouthgroup@gmail.com or Sheri Harris, Religious Education Coordinator at 572-2273
