THE YEAR OF MERCY

DECEMBER 8, 2015 -
NOVEMBER 20, 2016
 
 
Please join us as we celebrate the
Incardination and Installation of
Fr. Edmundo N.
Barut Jr.
Date: Sunday,
September 11, 2016
Place: Our Lady of
Perpetual Help Church
Mass Time:  5 pm
Celebrant:
Bishop Larry Silva
 
Reception to follow at the OLPH School grounds after Mass.
 
ALL ARE INVITED!
 
Incardination is when a member of the clergy has been placed under the jurisdiction of a particular bishop or diocese.  In this process of incardination, he will then be installed as the "pastor" of the assigned parish.  He is no longer considered as a parish administrator.
 
 
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 as Altar Servers,
Sacristans and Ushers Ministry.  This Sunday we would like to thank and recognize those serving within the EMHC, Homebound and Linen 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.
 
 
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.

Ha'a Ha'a
 
Last weekend we heard in the Gospel reading what Jesus said about striving to enter heaven through the narrow gate.  His foretelling that many will try but not all will make it.   In his homily, Fr. Sammy reminded us that to achieve heaven we need to live out our faith not only when we come to Mass but all the time.  And Fr. Ed recounted that perfection of our faith can be achieved through the daily practice of our faith.  In today's Gospel Jesus tells us how we are to, not only live it, but how to perfect it as well.
The Hawaiian people weren't always Christians.  They had their gods and demigods that were feared and worshiped.  But even then, before Christianity was introduced, they too had a code of conduct, a set of moral values, a lifestyle that was expected to be followed.  One of these values was called Ha’a Ha’a, the value of humility.  It didn’t mean allowing themselves to become less assertive but allowed them to see merit in the good things they did.  It taught them to groom their character with a humility stemming from the utmost of respect for others.  I remember stories of old Hawaii and how when someone on a journey was carrying something valuable, if it was wrapped in a Ti leaf, they could leave their package on the ground out in the open and not worry about anyone else taking it, it would still be there in the same spot when that person came back for it later.  I don’t think that kind of respect is alive anymore.  For the early Hawaiians there was nothing noble about being or acting superior to someone else.  Ha’a Ha’a, their umbleness, helped them to understand that no individual can satisfy every need, and that all in the ‘Ohana were needed.  All were to be respected and supported for the talent and uniqueness they offered.  So even before the people of Hawaii knew of Jesus they were already living today’s Gospel.
Today Jesus gave us an example of someone who takes a place of honor at the banquet table only to be removed from that place and asked to sit further down resulting in what could turn out to be an embarrassment.  If that person practiced Ha’a Ha’a this situation may have been avoided.  Humility is the way to live and to perfect our faith as it is revealed to us.  Again humility allows us to invite others outside of our regular group of friends and family to join our daily routines in life and to lift up those less fortunate.
This is how we should be living our lives, by living Ha’a Ha’a every day, not only when we come to church but always, until we reach the perfection of our faith and are able to find our way through that narrow gate.
