From the Desk of the Principal…June 4th, 2024
Tuesday  the 9th  week of Ordinary Time

2 Peter 3:11-15, 17-18. In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge – Psalm 89(90):2-4, 10, 14, 16. Mark 12:13-17.

All things are of God

One interpretation of today’s reading might be that Jesus makes a distinction between the realm of God and the worldly realm of Caesar. A person could hear his words and see how their loyalty might be given to both – paying taxes to Caesar, while also remembering they are part of God’s people.

However, it also depends on what we might mean by ‘ownership’. If we believe that everything, ultimately, belongs to God, then it leaves little if anything belonging to Caesar. Even the coin Jesus shows to the Pharisees and Herodians is made of precious metals that are given to us by God.

In weighing this question for ourselves, I suggest it’s prudent to continue paying one’s taxes if one wants to remain free to live in society. However, I think it’s also wise to consider the limits of worldly authority and see that ultimately all things are of God, not man.

Virtue of the Month: Responsibility ...

Virtue for the month of May/June ~   Responsibility

Pardoning those who have offended you.

ResponsibilityResponsibilities Lenten Activities ...

Being reliable in your duties and accountable for your actions~

When looking at responsibility we must remember we have free will. Freedom is the poser, rooted in reason and will, to act or not to act, and so to perform deliberate actions on one’s own responsibility.  By free will one shapes one’s own life.  Human freedom is like a superpower that helps us grow and become better people by choosing what is true and good.  When we use our freedom to follow God and seek happiness, that’s when it’s at its best. 

The Saints we are walking with this month in our classes are:Saint Peter - Wikipedia

Pre-K - Grade 2: St. Peter

Saint peter, you asked Jesus to forgive you for denying Him, and He made you the first pope !  Help me to be responsible.   Amen 

Saint Peter Pray for us!

Sea Catholic Church - Saint Henry II ...

Grades 3 - 5: St. Henry II

Saint Henry, you fulfilled the duties God entrusted to you and faithfully served the people of your kingdom,  Above all,, you tried always to be faithful to Jesus, the tru King of the world.  Help me to be responsible for all my duties , and to grow in holiness by serving God and others.  Amen 

Saint Henry II, Pray for us!

Bl Bartolo Longo by NoahGutz on DeviantArt

Grades 6 - 8:  Blessed Bartolo Longo

Blessed Bartolo Longo, although you had offended God severely, you turned back to him in confession, and dedicated your life to reparation.  Help us to be honest with ourselves, to take responsibility for our actions and sins, and to be determined to change them for the glory of God.  Intercede for us that we may have strength to repent, as you did. Amen

Blessed Bartolo Longo, Pray for us!

The program helps clergy, staff, volunteers, and parents to understand the facts and myths about child sexual abuse, how perpetrators groom children and young people, and how they, as caring adults, can learn and implement the important “Five Step Plan” to Protect God’s Children in helping to prevent child sexual abuse.

More than 150,000 clergy, staff and volunteers have participated in these training sessions throughout the five Pastoral Regions of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

Please know you are welcome to attend a training at any  parish in our diocese.  To learn where the training is taking place visit lacatholics.org  and under the pull down menu titled PROTECT/REPORT move your cursor to Safe SafeGuard the Children then to Education and Training.
