2014 Annual Catholic Appeal
Once again we come together to support diocesan ministries. This
year we embrace the message that Pope Francis shared in his first
encyclical, The Light of Faith (“Lumen Fidei”) as this years theme.
The Holy Father reminds us that faith is a light that dispels darkness.
“The light of faith is unique, since it is capable of illuminating every
aspect of human existence.”
Pope Francis tells us that, “Faith opens the way before us and
accompanies our steps through time.” May faith open the way as you
consider once again being an essential part of the 2014 Annual
Catholic Appeal with a sacrificial pledge.
Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio

Theme: The Gift of Wisdom
Reflection: This gospel helps us move all the talk about God’s kingdom out
of the scripture and into our daily lives. We can’t make the kingdom present
by ourselves. At first, Jesus tells the disciples to “give them some food
yourselves.” They can’t; human resources are not sufficient to make present
what God’s kingdom promises. Jesus then takes the meager human resources
- “five loaves and two fish”- and blesses them and gives them to disciples to
distribute to the crowds. What the disciples cannot do alone they can do with
Jesus’ blessing. (Living Liturgy, p. 208)
Meditation: “We must pass,...from affective to effective love. And that is a
love which takes flesh in works of charity, service of the poor which is undertaken with joy, constancy and
tender love.” (Praying with Vincent, p. 64)
Prayer:
Lord Jesus, you bless those who seek the poor,
-move our hearts from affective to effective love.
Open our eyes,
-that we may see your presence in our midst.
Open our ears,
-that we may hear the cries of the poor.
Open our hearts,
-that we may serve with joy, constancy and tender love.
Open our hands,
-that our “loaves and fishes” may receive your blessing. Amen.

This is a process, which provides preparation for adults who seek full initiation into the Catholic
Church through the reception of the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist .

The RCIA process also provides for:

The preparation of baptized Catholics who wish to complete their initiation into the Church
through the reception of the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.
B)
The preparation of validly baptized Christians from other traditions, who wish to be brought into Full Communion
in the Catholic Church.

THIRD ORDER LAY CARMELITE
Cenacles of Life:
St. Thomas Moore
St. Tomas Moore, was martyred for
Religious Freedom during the reign of
King Henry VIII. Our country was founded on Liberty
and justice for all, a right for worship and preservation
of conscience. Recently we celebrated the 4th of July;
Independence began for the United States of America!
To keep this freedom of liberty and justice for all, we
ask through the Cenacles of Life, a continuation of
what our forefathers gave our country. Come on
Wednesdays at 11:00am in St. Mel’s Church, and pray
to our Blessed Mother to change the hearts and minds
of those who threaten our religious freedom.
