“First clean the inside of the cup.” Today Jesus continues his critique on hypocrisy among religious leaders. This prompts us to examine our hearts & purify our motives so that all our religious practices & rituals may truly give glory to God in all things and above all things.

June 18, 2020 Sacred Heart of Jesus

(We are open for Public Masses.)

June 19th is our newest public holiday in Virginia. It the day we celebrate the end of slavery in the U.S., Emancipation Day, also called Juneteenth. This year this day coincides with the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I cannot think of a better connection. The Sacred Heart of Jesus is the core of the Gospel Message. Each of us to be loved by Christ who suffered and died unjustly and each of us to love like Jesus, who loves all equally and generously. In a secular way, we are celebrating that every human being is owed compassion, love, respect and dignity. May the Sacred Heart of Jesus inspire us to the perfect love of God. A love that knows no boundaries or limits. May we hide within His Sacred Heart and experience His protective care. May we love with His sacred Heart each person whom we encounter. ........................................................................................................................................................ (Estamos abiertos para las misas públicas). El 19 de junio es nuestro último día festivo en Virginia. Es el día en que celebramos el fin de la esclavitud en los Estados Unidos, el Día de la Emancipación, también llamado Juneteenth. Este año, este día coincide con la Solemnidad del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús. No puedo pensar en una mejor conexión. El Sagrado Corazón de Jesús es el núcleo del Mensaje del Evangelio. Cada uno de nosotros para ser amado por Cristo que sufrió y murió injustamente y cada uno de nosotros para amar como Jesús, que ama a todos por igual y con generosidad. De manera secular, celebramos que a todo ser humano se le debe compasión, amor, respeto y dignidad. Que el Sagrado Corazón de Jesús nos inspire al amor perfecto de Dios. Un amor que no conoce límites ni límites. Que podamos escondernos dentro de Su Sagrado Corazón y experimentar Su cuidado protector. Que podamos amar con Su Sagrado Corazón a cada persona con quien nos encontremos.

June 18, 2020

When Jesus' disciples ask him to teach them to pray, Jesus not only teaches them the fundamentals but also gives them the most iconic and profound prayers to help them practice. Jesus lays out these 4 principles as fundamentals of prayer. 1) Do not babble. The words are not of the most importance, 2) being heard by God is not dependent upon what your saying, how often you say it or how you say it. 3) Do not imitate how others are praying just because it looks holy, seems hard, or challenging. 4) Have confidence in God, the listener, more than you the speaker of the prayer. He knows what you need and loves you as His son or daughter. He will not abandon you in your prayer. This is why we pray, "Our Father." ........................................................................................................................................................ (Estamos abiertos para las misas públicas). Cuando los discípulos de Jesús le piden que les enseñe a orar, Jesús no solo les enseña los fundamentos, sino que también les da las oraciones más icónicas y profundas para ayudarlos a practicar. Jesús expone estos principios 4 principios como fundamentos de la oración. 1) No hablen muchos. Las palabras no son de la mayor importancia, 2) ser escuchado por Dios no depende de lo que diga, con qué frecuencia lo diga o cómo lo diga. 3) No imites cómo otros están orando solo porque parece sagrado, difícil o desafiante. 4) Ten confianza en Dios, el oyente, más que tú, el orador de la oración. Él sabe lo que necesitas y te ama como su hijo o hija. Él no te abandonará en tu oración. Es por eso que oramos, "Padre nuestro".

June 17, 2020

(We are open for public masses.)

Why do we pray? Why are we charitable people? Why do we sacrifice? Prayer, fasting and alms giving benefit us. They are not necessarily ends in themselves. We do not pray just for the sake of saying the prayer, nor do we make sacrifices and mortification simply because we should suffer. We do these 3 acts out of devotion or piety. Piety can be defined as "acts of love done for God." Another way to say it is, piety is doing good for the right reason, that is out of love for God. In today's Gospel Jesus makes it clear that these acts are to be hidden acts done in secret. One of the most beautifully sweet things we can do for another is small secret acts of sacrifice done out love for them. These hidden sacrifices go a very long way in helping us to love another most fully. ........................................................................................................................................................ (Estamos abiertos para las misas públicas). ¿Por qué rezamos? ¿Por qué somos personas caritativas? ¿Por qué nos sacrificamos? Oración, ayuno y limosnas nos benefician. No son necesariamente fines en sí mismos. No rezamos solo por decir la oración, ni hacemos sacrificios y mortificación simplemente porque debamos sufrir. Hacemos estos 3 actos por devoción o piedad. La piedad se puede definir como "actos de amor hechos por Dios". Otra forma de decirlo es que la piedad está haciendo el bien por la razón correcta, que es por amor a Dios. En el Evangelio de hoy, Jesús deja en claro que estos actos deben ser actos ocultos hechos en secreto. Una de las cosas más bellas y dulces que podemos hacer por otro es pequeños actos secretos de sacrificio hecho por amor a ellos. Estos sacrificios escondidos contribuyen en gran medida a ayudarnos a amar a otro completamente.

(Public Masses are being celebrated in Sterling and we temporarily will have 2 daily masses Monday through Friday, an 8:00am in English and 4:30pm in Spanish.)

Our readings today make me think of the Catechism of the Catholic church where is speaks eloquently of peace. (CCC 2302 - 2306) In this passage we are reminded that deliberate hatred is contrary to charity and that it is sin and can even be mortally sinful if we desire and attempt to cause them grave harm. "But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven." The Holy Father goes on to remind us of the power of refusing to use violence and bloodshed. He says those that do so "make use of those means of defense available to the weakest, bear witness to evangelical charity..." "They bear legitimate witness to the gravity of the physical and moral risks of recourse to violence, with all its destruction and death." Elijah calls on Ahab to repent to see the errors of his ways. Jesus encourages us to love those who persecute us and that we will be more like the Heavenly Father. ........................................................................................................................................................... (Se celebran misas públicas en Sterling y temporalmente tendremos 2 misas diarias de lunes a viernes, a las 8:00am en inglés y a las 4:30pm en español.) Nuestras lecturas de hoy me hacen pensar en el Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica donde se habla elocuentemente de paz. (CCC 2302 - 2306) En este pasaje se nos recuerda que el odio deliberado es contrario a la caridad y que es pecado e incluso puede ser mortal pecaminoso si deseamos e intentamos causarles graves daños. "Pero yo te digo, ama a tus enemigos y reza por los que te persiguen, para que puedas ser hijos de tu Padre que está en el cielo". El Santo Padre continúa recordándonos el poder de negarse a usar la violencia y el derramamiento de sangre. Él dice que "Los que renuncian a la acción violenta y sangrienta y recurren para la defensa de los derechos del hombre a medios que están al alcance de los más débiles, dan testimonio de caridad evangélica..." y "Atestiguan legítimamente la gravedad de los riesgos físicos y morales del recurso a la violencia con sus ruinas y sus muertes." Elijah le pide a Acab que se arrepienta de ver los errores de sus caminos. Jesús nos anima a amar a los que nos persiguen y que nos gustará más el Padre Celestial.

(Public Masses are being celebrated in Sterling and we temporarily will have 2 daily masses Monday through Friday, an 8:00am in English and 4:30pm in Spanish.)

Jesus challenges His disciples and us to treat others generously and kindly. He starts off by challenging the common thought of an eye for an eye. Respond to strength with strength and give back insult for insult. But we know this may feel good in the moment but does not resolve anything. As Martin Luther King Jr. famously said, " Darkness does not dispel darkness only light can do that, hate does not dispel hate only love can do that.” Jesus basically challenges us to respond to adversity with generosity. Someone strikes you on the cheek, give them the other as well; pushes you into service for a mile, go 2 miles. They sue you for your tunic, give them your cloak as well. Jesus is saying that it is far more important to be the source of kindness and generosity or else the hate will never stop and will just keep being perpetuated. ........................................................................................................................................................ (Se celebran misas públicas en Sterling y temporalmente tendremos 2 misas diarias de lunes a viernes, a las 8:00am en inglés y a las 4:30pm en español.) Jesús nos reta a sus discípulos y a nosotros a tratar a los demás con generosidad y amabilidad. Comienza desafiando el pensamiento común de ojo por ojo. Responda a la fuerza con fuerza y devuelva insulto por insulto. Pero sabemos que esto puede sentirse bien en el momento, pero no resuelve nada. Como Martin Luther King Jr dijo: "La oscuridad no disipa la oscuridad, solo la luz puede hacer eso, el odio no disipa el odio, solo el amor puede hacer eso. Jesús básicamente nos reta a responder a la adversidad con generosidad. Alguien te golpea en la mejilla, dale el otro también; te pone en servicio por una milla, ve 2 millas. Te demandan por tu túnica, dales tu capa también. Jesús dice que es mucho más importante ser fuente de amabilidad y generosidad o de lo contrario, el odio nunca se detendrá y se seguirá perpetuando.

[06/14/20]   Homily for the Feast of Corpus Christi

By Father Mark Moretti

I love this time of the year because the Church has concluded the celebration of Easter, but she still wants to have a party! No sooner is Pentecost marked, that we have the celebration of the Holy Trinity, the Body and Blood of Christ, and the Sacred Heart in three consecutive weeks. It sure makes for a time of joy and festivity! Our Gospel today is the conclusion of the famous “Bread of Life” discourse found in Saint John chapter 6. The background is very important. Jesus had performed a great miracle – the multiplication of the loaves and fishes. Many thousands of people feasted on delicious fish and bread given by the Hands of the Son of God. To many, this was THE miracle. he miracle that would bring in the new era of the Messiah. But Jesus had a greater miracle to be given soon, and He used this opportunity to instruct his followers on its sacred importance. He wanted them to understand that He would nourish them always in a most intimate fashion. He would feed them with His own Flesh and Blood. And so, He turned the teaching to this reality. He used very graphic language that he punctuated with a double amen. There would be no other way but to accept in faith the deepest words of the Son of God.
Jesus said to the Jewish crowds:
"I am the living bread that came down from heaven;
whoever eats this bread will live forever;
and the bread that I will give
is my flesh for the life of the world."
The Jews quarreled among themselves, saying,
"How can this man give us his flesh to eat?"
Jesus said to them,
"Amen, amen, I say to you,
unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood
has eternal life,
and I will raise him on the last day.
For my flesh is true food,
and my blood is true drink.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood
remains in me and I in him.
Just as the living Father sent me
and I have life because of the Father,
so also the one who feeds on me
will have life because of me.
This is the bread that came down from heaven.
Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died,
whoever eats this bread will live forever." Saint John records that many of his followers reacted with disgust, even horror that the rabbi from Nazareth was proclaiming. It was a “make or break” moment. They thought: should we stay and have faith or walk away and declare our revulsion? It appears that most walked away that day from the Lord, without so much as a thank you for all He had done for them. Only His closest friends, with Saint Peter affirming their trust in Him, would remain at His side. It is a shame, because if those people had believed in Jesus, they would have been invited to the Last Supper, and then they would realize that Jesus was indeed going to give us His Body and Blood in the form of a Sacrament.
At the symbolic “first Mass of the Church”, Jesus would take bread and wine at the seder, and so thoroughly identify it with Himself, that it would truly become His whole self. Only the appearance of bread and wine would remain. He gave his apostles and all priests that same authority to make Him present on every altar until the end of time. That miracle exists to this very day, as our Lord abides with us in the tabernacle here at Christ the Redeemer Church.
Just as the Church invited her children last week to ponder the great mystery of the Holy Trinity, she invites us today to ponder the mystery of the Holy Eucharist. The feast that we celebrate today dates to 1264 and was instituted by Pope Urban IV. A year earlier, a priest from Prague, made a pilgrimage and asked the Lord to help him. It seems that Father Peter was plagued with doubt that the bread and wine would truly become the Body and Blood of Christ. Obediently, he shuffled down one morning to offer Mass at the altar and at the consecration, the Host began to bleed. He could not hide his astonishment and proclaimed a miracle in the loudest voice. All at the Mass were in awe and wonder, and they thanked God for letting them witness such a wonderful sign from Heaven.
Word reached the Pope and he traveled to see the miracle for himself. Fully convinced, he commissioned Saint Thomas Aquinas to write the parts of a special Mass in honor of the Holy Eucharist, and today, the feast of Corpus Christi is celebrated with great reverence throughout the world. Magnificent hymns that we have sung since childhood were composed by the great saint: the Tantum Ergo, Pange Lingua, O Salutaris, and Panis Angelicus. The sequence that we heard before the Gospel, Lauda Sion, recalls the fulfillment of all the promises of God regarding the Real Presence of His Son in the great sacrament. And so, today we celebrate. But we are also challenged. Are we truly faithful Catholics? Do we sincerely believe in Jesus and His plan for our salvation? Do we ask Him to let our faith in Him and His presence in the Eucharist grow each day? Do we make acts of intense reverence for Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament? Is our belief unshakable and are we willing to proclaim it? Or, like His false friends of old, walk away from Jesus or remain indifferent and cold to the reality of His divine love and mercy. I hope that for all of us, we can truly open our hearts and make a deep act of faith today. Let us sing aloud the ancient hymn and let it reflect our most genuine beliefs: “Down in adoration falling...Lo! The Sacred Host we hail”
May God bless you!!

Homilía para la fiesta del Corpus Christi
Por el Padre Mark Moretti
¡Me encanta esta época del año porque la Iglesia ha concluido la celebración de la Pascua, pero ella todavía quiere tener una fiesta! Tan pronto como marcamos Pentecostés, que tengamos la celebración de la Santísima Trinidad, el Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo, y el Sagrado Corazón en tres semanas consecutivas. ¡Seguro que nos mantiene en un ambiente de alegría y festividad!
Nuestro Evangelio de hoy es la conclusión del famoso discurso "Pan de Vida" que se encuentra en el capítulo 6 de San Juan. El trasfondo es muy importante. Jesús había realizado un gran milagro: la multiplicación de los panes y los peces. Muchos miles de personas se deleitaron con deliciosos pescados y panes dados por las manos del Hijo de Dios. Para muchos, este fue EL milagro. El milagro que traería la nueva era del Mesías. Pero Jesús tuvo un milagro mayor que se dio pronto, y aprovechó esta oportunidad para instruir a sus seguidores sobre su sagrada importancia. Quería que entendieran que El los alimentaría siempre de la manera más íntima. Los alimentaba con Su propio Cuerpo y Sangre. Y así, El volvió la enseñanza a esta realidad. Utilizó un lenguaje muy gráfico que acentúa con doble amén. No habría otra manera que aceptar con fe las palabras más profundas del Hijo de Dios.
En aquel tiempo, Jesús dijo a los judíos:
“Yo soy el pan vivo que ha bajado del cielo;
el que coma de este pan vivirá para siempre.
Y el pan que yo les voy a dar es mi carne para que el mundo tenga vida”. Entonces los judíos se pusieron a discutir entre sí:
“¿Cómo puede éste darnos a comer su carne?”
Jesús les dijo:
“Yo les aseguro:
Si no comen la carne del Hijo del hombre y no beben su sangre,
no podrán tener vida en ustedes.
El que come mi carne y bebe mi sangre,
tiene vida eterna
y yo lo resucitaré el último día.
Mi carne es verdadera comida
y mi sangre es verdadera bebida.
El que come mi carne y bebe mi sangre,
permanece en mí y yo en él.
Como el Padre, que me ha enviado,
posee la vida y yo vivo por él,
así también el que me come
vivirá por mí.
Éste es el pan que ha bajado del cielo;
no es como el maná que comieron sus padres, pues murieron.
El que come de este pan vivirá para siempre”.

San Juan registra que muchos de sus seguidores reaccionaron con disgusto, incluso horror lo que el rabino de Nazaret estaba proclamando. Fue un momento de "hacer o romper". Pensaron: ¿nos quedamos y tenemos fe o nos alejamos y declaramos nuestra repulsión?, Parece que la mayoría se alejó ese día del Señor, sin ni siquiera un muchas gracias por todo lo que había hecho por ellos. Sólo el amigo más cercano, con San Pedro afirmaron su confianza en él, permanecerían a su lado. Es una pena, porque si esas personas hubieran creído en Jesús, habrían sido invitadas a la última cena, y entonces se darían cuenta de que Jesús nos iba a dar Su Cuerpo y Sangre en forma de Sacramento.
En la simbólico "primera misa de la Iglesia", Jesús tomaba pan y vino en la celebración sagrada judía (Seder), y lo identificaba tan a fondo con Sí mismo, que realmente se convertiría en su presencia real. Sólo quedaría la apariencia del pan y el vino. Dio a sus apóstoles y a todos los sacerdotes esa misma autoridad para hacer que Él esté presente en cada altar hasta el fin de los tiempos. Ese milagro existe hasta el día de hoy, como nuestro Señor permanece con nosotros en el tabernáculo aquí en la Iglesia Cristo Redentor.
Así como la Iglesia invitó a sus hijos la semana pasada a reflexionar sobre el gran misterio de la Santísima Trinidad, nos invita hoy a reflexionar sobre el misterio de la Santa Eucaristía. La fiesta que celebramos hoy data de 1264 y fue instituida por el Papa Urbano IV. Un año antes, un sacerdote de Praga hizo una peregrinación y le pidió al Señor que lo ayudara. Parece que el Padre Pedro estaba plagado de dudas de que el pan y el vino se convertirían verdaderamente en el Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo. Obedientemente, se preparó una mañana para ofrecer misa en el altar y en la consagración, la hostia comenzó a sangrar. No podía ocultar su asombro y proclamó un milagro en la voz más fuerte. Todos en la Misa estaban asombrados y sorprendidos, y agradecieron a Dios por dejarles presenciar una señal tan maravillosa del Cielo.
Llegó la noticia al Papa y viajó para ver el milagro por sí mismo. Totalmente convencido, encargó a Santo Tomás de Aquino que escribiera las partes de una misa especial en honor a la Santa Eucaristía, y hoy, la fiesta del Corpus Christi se celebra con gran reverencia en todo el mundo. Magníficos himnos que hemos cantado desde la infancia fueron compuestos por el gran santo: el Tantum Ergo, Pange Lingua, o Salutaris y Panis Angelicus. La secuencia que escuchamos ante el Evangelio, Lauda Sion, recuerda el cumplimiento de todas las promesas de Dios con respecto a la presencia real de Su Hijo en el gran sacramento. Y así, hoy celebramos. Pero también somos desafiados. ¿Somos verdaderos católicos fieles? ¿Creemos sinceramente en Jesús y en Su plan para nuestra salvación? ¿Le pedimos que deje crecer cada día nuestra fe en Él y su presencia en la Eucaristía? ¿Hacemos actos de intensa reverencia por Jesús en el Santísimo Sacramento? ¿Es nuestra creencia inquebrantable y estamos dispuestos a proclamarlo? o, como Sus falsos amigos de antaño, nos alejamos de Jesús o permanece indiferente y fríos a la realidad de Su amor divino y misericordia. Espero que para todos nosotros podemos abrir nuestros corazones y hacer un acto profundo de fe hoy. Cantemos en voz alta el antiguo himno y hagamos que refleje nuestras creencias más genuinas:” postrémonos en adoración...Lo! La Hostia Sagrada que saludamos"
¡Que Dios te bendiga!
