1 B eing "God's Servant in the world" isn't easy! We sometimes think we "speak for" Godalways dangerous, for we don't have the mind of God. The first reading deals with the difference in the way we thinkgod thinks in millennia, we think in days and hours! What we see as something "just" that should happen immediately, God sees in a context that is both much larger and more "lenient," as it is always leading individuals and peoples to learn from their mistakes and reform, rather than being caught in a moment of transgression and punished. The Gospel is an illustration of this principleenemies can do things that seem to "ruin" our crop! But, in the end, we need both wheat, and the chaff to start the fire to bake the bread we make with it, so all is somehow brought into alignment but in ways we wouldn't have suspected at first sight. And what is more, when ALL is useful, things grow in ways otherwise unimaginable. So, we are asked to serve a God Who is larger than we can imagine, and Whose ways our beyond our understanding...so when we speak of Him, it is best always to speak of His love, not His judgment, for the latter is more refined than we can appreciate and more lenient than we can comprehend though we all want that leniency when it comes to us, don't we? So, this week, let's worship a God Who is big enough and wise enough to find each one of us, as well as those we meetboth in friendship and in adversitya TREASURE. Fr. Bill Axe Rest in Peace: Maxine Wagner It is with profound sadness that we announce the death of Maxine Wagner, who entered eternal life on July 9, She was 76. Mass of Resurrection will be celebrated on Thursday, July at 11:00 a.m. at St. Agatha Church. Siendo el servidor de Dios no es siempre fácil! Siempre pensamos que hablamos por Dios, pero esto es peligroso porque no tenemos la mente de Dios. La primera lectura se trata de las diferentes maneras que pensamos Dios piensa en milenios mientras que nosotros en días y horas! Nosotros podríamos ver que lo justo debería de pasar al instante, Dios lo ve en un contexto mucho mayor y más tolerante. Deja que las personas aprendan de sus errores y tanto de que sean aprehendidos por sus transgresiones y ser castigados. El evangelio es una ilustración de este principio Los enemigos pueden hacer algo que echen a perder la cosecha! Pero, al final, necesitamos el trigo y la cascarilla para empezar el fuego para cocinar el pan, entonces al final se forma un balance pero de maneras que no había pensado al principio. Es más, cuando TODO es útil, las cosas crecen de una manera inimaginable. Por tanto, se nos pide a sirvamos a un Dios Quien es más grande que lo que nos imaginamos, y Cuyas maneras son más allá de nuestro entendimiento entonces cuando hablemos de Él, hablemos de su amor y no de su juicio, puesto que su juicio es más perfecto para apreciarlo y más tolerante para comprenderlo, y todos queremos esta tolerancia cuando nos toca, no es así? Entonces, esta semana, alabemos a un Dios Quien es suficientemente grande y suficientemente sabio para que nos encuentre, como también a quienes llegamos a conocer ambos en la amistad y en la adversidad un TESORO. Padre Bill Axe Interment will follow the Mass at Holy Cross Cemetery, 5835 W Slauson Ave Repast after interment at St. Agatha's Parish Hall. In your charity and kindness, please remember Maxine Wagner in your Masses and prayers.

2 To build and foster a Christian Community that offers the opportunity to experience God God s s unconditional love and acceptance to all who come into contact with it. L Construyendo y alimentando una comunidad cristiana que ofrezca la oportunidad de experimentar el amor incondicional de Dios y la aceptación a todos con quienes nos encontremos. L ast week's readings presented us a parable about sowing. This week we have a parable that speaks about tending the growing plants as we await the harvest. Both of these weeks we see good and evil existing together and ask why God has allowed this? Doesn't God want us to make the church an enclave of purity in a sinful world, eliminating the wrongheaded and halfhearted? Our reading suggests that it is not easy to distinguish saints from sinners some times. Appearances can be deceiving. We need to leave the judgment of souls to God. For it is God, as our second reading states, who is "the one who searches hearts." On our part, we should be kind to all. a lectura de la semana pasada se trató de una parábola sobre la siembra. Esta semana tenemos un parábola que nos habla sobre las plantas que crecen mientras esperamos la cosecha. En estas dos semanas vemos al bien y al mal que existen juntos y preguntan: Por qué Dios lo ha permitido? Acaso Dios no quiere que hagamos de la Iglesia un lugar puro en un mundo de pecado, eliminando al que hace mal y con un corazón frío? Nuestras lecturas nos dicen que a veces no es fácil distinguir a los santos de los pecadores. Las apariencias nos pueden engañar. Necesitamos dejar que Dios se encargue de juzgar a las almas. Puesto que es Dios, como los dice la segunda lectura, quien busca corazones. Por nuestra parte, deberíamos de ser amables con todos. I hope I'll see many of you at the Picnic today, and if not have a wonderful Sunday and a grace filled week. Espero ver a muchos de ustedes en el Picnic el día de hoy, y tengamos un domingo maravilloso y lleno de la Gracia de Dios.
