CONGRATULATIONS FR. ED!
 

Recently Bishop Larry Silva appointed our own, Parish Administrator, Reverend Edmundo Barut, Jr. as the Vicar Forane of the Leeward Oahu Vicariate, effective July 1, 2016 - June 30, 2017 to complete the term of Father Michel Dalton, OFM Cap., who is moving to another vicariate.

The Vicar Forane represents the Leeward Vicariate parishes in the Presbyterate Council of the Bishop.  Fr. Ed was recently the Elected Representative of the Presbyterate Council, but that position has been given to another priest.  He is then appointed his new position in the Council by the Bishop himself.

Let us congratulate Fr. Ed on his new appointment and also let us offer prayers for him that God will grant his strength in body, mind and soul.

JUNE 25-26, 2016
THIRTEENTH SUNDAY
IN ORDINARY TIME

      This weekends Gospel tests our resolve as Disciples of Christ.  Is it easy for us to leave everything without as much as a goodbye to our families, or at least an explanation of why we are leaving?  Maybe not so hard for those who are single but for those of us with families this may seem to be something you wouldn’t expect Jesus to ask.  Yet he does.  There was no mention in the first reading if Elisha was married or not so the supposition is that he was single.  Still he demonstrated his willingness to follow Elijah when he cooked up his oxen and served up a banquet to his people.  His source of income eaten, (maybe they made some ox tail soup,) he never looked back.  He was free of his former life.
 

 
       The people in the Luke’s Gospel ask Jesus for some time to tie up some loose ends, but they’re denied their requests.  Jesus tells them in certain terms that there isn’t anything in this world more important than to focus on the goal of his kingdom.

       He even warns them that being a disciple will not be easy.  Everyone else has a home to go to or a place they can call home but to be a disciple means to give up ones personal possessions, the things that slow us down in our journey with him.  They become like an anchor dragging behind us as we try to keep up with him.  The apostles owned nothing but were never lacking of anything either.  No matter where they went, and some traveled very far distances, they always had their basic needs filled.  Food to eat, a place to stay and the finances needed to continue their ministries.  Somehow they were always cared for.

      This is where this weekend’s second reading teaches us to be generous with each other, to serve one another in love.  This gives us the freedom to become faithful followers of Jesus.  It unburdens us of the things we constantly worry about protecting or keeping safe, materialistic things.  The words of Ecclesiastes 1 come to mind, “Vanity of vanities!” about how we work so hard to amass so much and how when we die it just becomes stuff useless to us.  Sure, we could pass it on to our children but what happens when they die and their children and so on and so on?  That stuff will eventually go away, but what we will eternally be remembered for is how we treated others.  I’ve never presided over a funeral prayer service that the family made a point to say how much money or possessions this person had,
it’s always about how much this person loved, this is what is most important.
 

      To follow Jesus is a conscious choice we make every day.  Hear his call, don’t look back, live simply and serve one another in love.  This is this weekends message.
 
Peace,
Deacon Eric

GO WITH OUR PRAYERS!
 

  It has only been 10 months since Fr. Santiago “Bong” Agoo, walked through the doors of OLPH and now he has to leave those same doors for another parish.

  Fr. Bong has been assigned to be the Parish Administrator of Sacred Hearts Parish in Waianae.   His new assignment starts July 1, 2016.
 
  This parish community has been blessed by the presence of Fr. Bong, as he was able to share with us his wisdom, love and service.  Although he will be missed by many, we know that his love, wisdom and service will be shared with our brothers and sisters in Waianae.  As he continues his work to build the Kingdom of God on the Leeward coast of Oahu.
  
  Fr. Bong’s last day at OLPH will be June 30, 2016.  Let us wish him blessings and great joy in his new ministry/parish and let us continue to remember him in our prayers.
