In the coming Sundays we will be recognizing our “parish treasures”, which are the individuals that serve at the different ministries within Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church.  Last Sunday, we recognized those who are serving Respect Life Ministry.  This Sunday we would like to thank and recognize those serving within the Bereavement Ministry.  Thank you for your servant heart in being members of OLPH Ministries.
CCD classes are back in session. We ask all drivers to drive slow and follow traffic rules.  Let us all keep our children safe.  In addition, the road by the garage and carport will be coned which means drivers cannot make a left turn by the garage from 8 am to 10:30 am.  You either turn right or drive into the school ground and exit through the other gate by Room 8.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Lord Jesus Christ,
We gather in your name as did your apostles before us.  And we live, as they did, in anxious times, painfully aware of sin’s presence in the world; a world in need of your Father’s mercy and love.

As your disciples, we also live in hope, confident that your light is breaking through the changing moods of life – healing, embracing and transforming as your presence moves deep within us.
Help us see this time together as a moment of grace: A time when we open our hearts to you in prayer; discover your Truth in our discussions, and serve as blessings to one another.

Make us better stewards of the great wealth of gifts You have bestowed upon us.  And show us how to teach others to open their hearts to those who hunger, thirst or who are strangers.

Refresh our minds, renew our faith, and inspire us to proclaim your Gospel with a new energy in word and in deed for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.
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.
Clergy's Page Pastor's Corner
      Last week we listened as Jesus shared with us a lesson on praying without ceasing as the widow did with the dishonest judge, who finally gave in to her request.  This week he reinforces that point but also adds another lesson on how we should pray.  He said we should pray with humility.  Humility makes us justified.
      The Pharisee's prayer gave thanks to God for giving him the life he now led, making him better than those who sin by not following the law.  In his prayer he saw himself in a higher position, a position of authority and status . The tax collector on the other hand saw himself truly for what he was, a sinner, and a repentful one.  He prayed with humility, and in the end he went home justified.
       Today’s Gospel also said that God doesn’t favor anyone more than anyone else but for those who are in situations that they can’t control he hears their prayers and responds swiftly.  He hears the widows, orphans, the poor, the outcast and the dying.
      While praying over this week’s Gospel, a song came to mind that I used to like a lot having to do with the message Jesus is trying to relay to us today.  It’s called, “Better than a Halleluiah.”  Its verses tell us that although God loves to hear us thank and praise him for the things he does and gives to us; but sometimes he rejoices even more when we cry out to him in our sinfulness and need.  The lullaby sung to a gravely sick child by its crying mother, the soldier dying on the battlefield, the plea for help from someone with an addiction, a person ashamed for the things they’ve done and the lonely.  The chorus of the song talks about how we pour out all our miseries to God yet all he hears is a melody.  To him it’s like a song being sung, and he only sees the beauty in us during the worst parts of our lives.  He wants to know that we need him.  In situations like these, when we are most vulnerable is when we are most humble, just like the tax collector.
      I’ve been greatly blessed to see this first hand during my year of Chaplaincy in hospice.  Many times I would only be able to visit people once because the next time I came they would no longer be there.  But the time I spent with them, even if it was only once, is time I will always remember and cherish because of the humbleness they radiated.
      It’s time to look inward, into our own sinfulness, take advantage of the sacrament of reconciliation and ask God for help to bring us to that point of humility.
Peace, Deacon Eric Kim
