THIS WEEK'S BULLETIN NEWS:
No Sweat, No Sweet
Beloved in the Lord, we all desire the good things in life. There is no one who truly desires hardships. Therefore, it is not strange that the Apostles of Jesus desire that which they think will bring them comfort and joy. They desire Jesus to allow both of them to sit at his sides. In order words, they desire to be given what they feel is a place of highest privilege in the kingdom Jesus established.
Several years ago, I worked in a Catholic High School in which there was a senior who spent the entire study period in the school chapel rather than make use of the study period by preparing for exams. Those who told him to apply himself to his bookwork were considered by him as an anti-Christ, fit only for hell. This student desired to pass in his final exams even though he was not working towards the success. Needless to say, he had one of the worst exam results the school had ever received.
The desire for every right-thinking Christian is Heaven but let us ask ourselves how much work we do to have the Heaven we desire. The Apostles of Jesus desired Glory but Jesus instructs them the way to Glory is through the challenges of life and not by a wish. Jesus made His Apostles understand the way to Glory is the way of the cross.
In Philippians 2:12, Paul commanded all of this, “So then my beloved, even as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling”. The time here on earth that God has given us along with the several opportunities and blessings that come our way are made possible by God for us to make use for our Salvation and Eternal life. Being a Christian is a 24/7 job. We as Christians should never stop working for our salvation until God calls us to come and share in His Glory.
Reconciling with those who have hurt us, letting go of the grudges, not entertaining gossips and Calumny, going out of our way to help a brother or sister in need, assisting and supporting the Church in her Mission of evangelization with financial support or through our volunteering of our service, being nice to those who are not nice to you, being kind and welcoming to strangers, and many more. You will realize to live out these few Christian virtues will be very challenging but brothers and sisters, it is most rewarding. Do not forget that all that is good never comes easy. Not the best of things, the Glory of Heaven. It is only through Sweat, that we shall enjoy the sweetness of the Glory of Heaven. We need to make the necessary sacrifices. “As long as this day last, let us keep encouraging one another”.
"Do have a wonderful week with JESUS”.
Sin Sudor, Sin Dulce
Amados en el Señor, todos deseamos las cosas buenas de la vida. No hay nadie que realmente desee las dificultades. Por tanto, no es extraño que los Apóstoles de Jesús deseen aquello que creen que les traerá consuelo y alegría. Desean que Jesús les permita a ambos sentarse a sus lados. En otras palabras, desean que se les dé lo que sienten que es un lugar de mayor privilegio en el reino que Jesús estableció.
Hace varios años, trabajé en una escuela secundaria católica en la que había un estudiante de último año que pasaba todo el período de estudio en la capilla de la escuela en lugar de aprovechar el período de estudio preparándose para los exámenes. Aquellos que le dijeron que se dedicara a sus libros fueron considerados por él como un anticristo, apto solo para el infierno. Este estudiante deseaba aprobar sus exámenes finales a pesar de que no estaba trabajando para lograrlo. No hace falta decir que tuvo uno de los peores resultados de exámenes que la escuela había recibido.
El deseo de todo cristiano que piensa correctamente es el cielo, pero preguntémonos cuánto trabajo hacemos para tener el cielo que deseamos. Los Apóstoles de Jesús deseaban la Gloria, pero Jesús les instruye que el camino a la Gloria es a través de los desafíos de la vida y no por un deseo. Jesús hizo comprender a sus apóstoles que el camino a la gloria es el camino de la cruz.
En Filipenses 2:12, Pablo ordenó todo esto: “Entonces, amado mío, así como siempre has obedecido, no como en mi presencia solamente, sino ahora mucho más en mi ausencia, obra tu propia salvación con temor y temblor”. El tiempo aquí en la tierra que Dios nos ha dado junto con las diversas oportunidades y bendiciones que vienen en nuestro camino son posibles gracias a Dios para que lo usemos para nuestra Salvación y Vida Eterna. Ser cristiano es un trabajo de 24 horas al día, 7 días a la semana. Nosotros, como cristianos, nunca debemos dejar de trabajar por nuestra salvación hasta que Dios nos llame a venir y compartir su gloria.
Reconciliarnos con quienes nos han lastimado, dejar ir los rencores, no entretener chismes y calumnias, hacer todo lo posible para ayudar a un hermano o hermana necesitado, ayudar y apoyar a la Iglesia en su Misión de evangelización con apoyo económico o mediante nuestro ser voluntario de nuestro servicio, ser amable con los que no lo son contigo, ser amable y acogedor con los extraños, y muchos más. Se darán cuenta de que vivir estas pocas virtudes cristianas será muy desafiante, pero hermanos y hermanas, es muy gratificante. No olvide que todo lo bueno nunca es fácil. No es la mejor de las cosas, la Gloria del Cielo. Es sólo a través del sudor que disfrutaremos de la dulzura de la Gloria del Cielo. Necesitamos hacer los sacrificios necesarios. “Mientras dure este día, sigamos animándonos unos a otros”.
"Que tengas una maravillosa semana con JESÚS".

THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE
The Knights of Columbus was the leading proponent of the 1954 addition of the words “under God” to the Pledge of Allegiance. U.S. Knights began including the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance in 1951 after the organization’s board of directors adopted a resolution mandating that the amended pledge be formally recited in each of its 750 Fourth Degree assemblies. A year later, the Supreme Council adopted a resolution that urged Congress and the White House to add the words “under God” to the Pledge. Supreme Knight Luke Hart, who was also president of the National Fraternal Congress, persuaded the other 110 fraternal societies to support the resolution as well. The Pledge of Allegiance was formally amended by Congress and signed into law by President Dwight Eisenhower on Flag Day, June 14, 1954. In a letter following the action, President Eisenhower thanked Supreme Knight Hart for the K of C’s work in making the addition of the words “under God,” to the Pledge a reality. Today the Order is directly involved in defending the Pledge against the most recent legal challenges to its constitutionality. In 2005, atheist Michael Newdow, whose earlier lawsuit had been rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court because he lacked standing, filed a new challenge with a number of coplaintiffs. He asked the U.S. District Court in Sacramento, CA to declare the Pledge unconstitutional because it contains the words “under God.” The Knights of Columbus and seven individual Knights and their families sought and were granted permission to join the suit as defendant-intervenors. In 2006, the District Court ruled against the Pledge, and the Knights immediately appealed the decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Oral arguments in the case were heard by a panel of the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco on Tuesday, December 4, 2007. On March 11, 2010, the court issued a decision upholding the constitutionality of the Pledge, and ruling that the words under God “do not violate the Establishment Clause.” On October 31, 2007, Newdow filed a similar lawsuit against the school system in Hanover, New Hampshire, this time on behalf of the Freedom From Religion Foundation and several local plaintiffs. Once again, the Knights of Columbus sought and received permission from the court to become defendant-intervenors. On September 30, 2009, U.S. District Judge Steven McAuliffe ruled that the Pledge of Allegiance - including the words “under God” - did not violate the Constitution, and dismissed the case. Judge McAuliffe held that the Pledge “neither advances nor inhibits religion” and “does not foster excessive government involvement with religion.” It was, he said, “enacted to enhance instruction in the Nation’s history, and foster a sense of patriotism.” Newdow has appealed to the First Circuit.
