Gospel

Mk 6:30-34

The apostles gathered together with Jesus
and reported all they had done and taught.
He said to them,
“Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.”
People were coming and going in great numbers,
and they had no opportunity even to eat.
So they went off in the boat by themselves to a deserted place.
People saw them leaving and many came to know about it.
They hastened there on foot from all the towns
and arrived at the place before them.

When he disembarked and saw the vast crowd,
his heart was moved with pity for them,
for they were like sheep without a shepherd;
and he began to teach them many things.

    Reflection
    The readings present the image of the shepherd responsible for the herd. The prophet Jeremiah sings a lament against the perverse shepherds who do not fulfill their function but cause the dispersion and death of the sheep. With this, he alludes to the time of exile, denouncing the attitude of the kings and leaders of the people that have not been able to safeguard the unity and religious identity of the people of Israel.
    Therefore, God becomes the pastor of this scattered people, to gather him and bring him back to the earth, to green pastures and water fountains. In addition, the prophet puts in God’s mouth the announcement of a new pastor (a descendant of David) to reign with justice in the name of the just God. The evangelist Mark recounts the reunion of the disciples with Jesus after the mission that the Master entrusted to them. It is like a preview of what is going to happen with each of us at the end of our stay in this world, that is, that each of us must return to the Master to be held accountable. Depending on
    whether we do it, we will be able to move on to eternal rest with the Master.
    Question: How have I been fulfilling the mission that Jesus entrusted to me? How faithful am I to the Good Shepherd (Jesus), and how often do I pray for the priests?

    Don’t let yourself be scammed! Often, many of you receive text messages or an email using my name, asking you to be generous, either through gift cards or other ways. Don’t be fooled, because you know that when I ask I do it in the temple or personally, and I do it for the parish and never for my own benefit; that’s why I have never told you my birthday. Please ignore email or text messages because that’s not me.

  • The Big Day Has Arrived!

    This Tuesday, July 23, our parish celebrates 60 years. That is why we want to invite you to celebrate the Eucharist together at 6:00 pm followed by a food sharing in the parish hall as well as being able to know a little about the history of our parish, a story where you or one of yours has been present in one way or another. Perhaps your name is not mentioned, but the mere fact of being with us and having participated in some social, cultural, or religious event makes you part of the story of St. Paul the Apostle.
    We look forward to seeing you this Tuesday. Please do not forget to bring your gift, that is, to come and celebrate with us, because the greatest gift for this parish is you and your family. Of course, if you bring your $ gift St. Paul the Apostle will not reject it.
    Happy birthday, and thank you for being part of this beautiful parish and its history! SEE BELOW for details, or check out the flyer in the Weekly Bulletin Insert, 7-21-24. Click on Weekly Bulletin above.
