Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Parish is a faith-filled community for all cultures and ages dedicated to building the Kingdom of God. We come closer to God by following Jesus Christ through His Word and the Sacraments. Through the Holy Spirit and with the intercession of our Blessed Mother, we provide a sense of belonging to all God's people through prayer, service and the sharing of our gifts for the praise and glory of God.
 
 
Generous and Loving Creator, you have called us to Malama i ka Makana (Cherish the Gift).  As disciples of your Son, we ask that your Spirit open our minds and hearts to more deeply appreciate your countless blessings.  Increase your transforming spirit within us, so as to nurture our call to stewardship as a way of life marked always by faith-filled prayer, service to others and generous giving.  With the kokua of St. Marianne and St. Damien, teach us to be good stewards so we may return a hundred-fold the makana entrusted to us.  We pray this through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

“KNOCK, KNOCK. WHO’S THERE?”
WOW! That’s all I can say about the readings we’ll hear this weekend.  Have you ever been up for a promotion at work thinking you were guaranteed to get it, owed it even, then get passed over for the position by someone you never expected, someone you thought to be below you?  WOW!  You may have been expecting something you really, really wanted, but you never got it, like say a Cello you ordered from Amazon that never came even after being told it’s on its way, 4 times?  Ok, that was me.  WOW! How about being told by your mother you’re her favorite just to find out she says the same thing to all your brothers and sisters when she thinks no one else can hear.  WOW!  How did you feel when you put that big bet down on a football game and you’re guaranteed to win because it’s the last second and your team has the ball and as he’s taking a knee on the last play the Quarterback fumbles, it’s picked up by the other team and they score to win the game?  You lost all your money.  WOW!  Unbelievable right?  This is the predicament the Israelites find themselves, being described in our first reading today.  God, through Isaiah, tells them that they will no longer be his one and only favorites.  That he’ll send “Fugitives” (this turns out to be the Apostles) out to many nations.  To places that have never even heard of him or his works or power.  And these “Fugitives” will tell all the people in those many nations about him and they will be the ones to bring all the Israelites back to their rightful place among all of Gods people.  Originally it was Israel to be a light to the nations, only now the tables have turned.  Some Israelites thought that heaven was only for them and no one else, and all others would be excluded.  God tells them otherwise even to the point of letting them know that he’ll make priests and Levites of these foreigners which was unthinkable to them.  It seems they were being chastised for the way they were acting.  But in Paul’s letter to the Hebrews he relates that being disciplined is all part of our relationship with God, but this lesson doesn’t only pertain to the Israelites as we see in our Gospel.  Here Luke recounts the words of Jesus to paint a picture of the reality of being a part of God’s heavenly banquet.  God wants many people to become part of his kingdom but not those who consider themselves to be automatically included, despite their sinfulness.  Jesus goes on to make things even more difficult because now all people are held to the same standard.  We can come to mass every weekend, we can share in the meal of his body and blood, listen to his words and yet still not be invited to his heavenly kingdom.  Why?  because we think that’s all it takes.  Spoiler alert, it’s much more than that.  What?  WOW!  Yes,  It’s mercy, forgiveness humbleness compassion and most importantly, Love.  We are judged by how we judge and the last thing I want to hear when knocking on the door to heaven is, “Who’s there?”
