Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, July 24, 2016
Online Giving is now available at San Isidro!
Take part of the World Youth Day Virtual Pilgrimage
Over 500 pilgrims from across the Archdiocese of Miami will travel to Poland on July 23 to be part of the World Youth Day Celebration.
You may follow their trip through the Archdiocese of Miami website www.miamiarch.org and social media accounts: Facebook @ArchdioceseofMiami, Twitter @CatholicMiami, and Instagram @CatholicMiami with the hashtag #WYDMiami16.
World Youth Day which actually lasts from July 25th - 31st is the world’s largest Catholic youth fest. It takes place every two or three years. The last one was in Rio de Janeiro in 2013.
St. John Paul II started World Youth Day in 1985, so Krakow is a coming-home of sorts for the event: It is where the future pope was born. It is also the site of the Divine Mercy devotion he championed, a fitting locale during this extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy.
Pope Francis will join the world’s youths for an evening Stations of the Cross on Wednesday, July 27th; a prayer vigil on Saturday, July 30th; and a closing Mass on Sunday, July 31st.
Archbishop Thomas Wenski also will join the Miami pilgrims, celebrating Mass for them Sunday, July 24th, at Jasna Gora, before the icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa; Monday, July 25th, at St. Ann Church in Krakow; and Saturday, July 30th at Sts. Peter and Paul Church in Krakow.
Before the official beginning of World Youth Day, Miami pilgrims will tour Auschwitz and make a “Pilgrimage of Mercy” to the Divine Mercy Sanctuary and JPII Center. Afterward, they will “debrief” and reflect amid the mountains at Zakopane, where John Paul II loved to hike with the young adults of his day.
The pilgrims will spend their last day in Europe doing a little sightseeing in Vienna, Austria, before flying back to Miami Aug. 3rd.
The Prayer Group meets every Thursday after the 7:00pm Mass, in the Chapel. Every LAST Thursday of each month we will have teachings from Fr. Ethel Starting Thursday, July 28, 2016.
Bring your Bible and be prepared to take notes.
Let’s Pray for those in the Service
O, Lord God of hosts, O God of our salvation, O God who alone workest wonders, do thou now look down with mercy and compassion on thy humble servants and out of love for mankind hearken and have mercy on us. Look with mercy, we pray thee, O Lord, on those of our sons and daughters who now serve in our Armed Forces, and who in obedience to their superiors have for our sakes placed themselves in harm’s way. Grant that those who request the protection of thy right hand may be overpowered by no adverse force, and may the invited defense of thy mighty power shield thy faithful sons and daughters. Watch over them, O Lord, and bring them back safely to those who love them. Grant courage and steadfast faith to them and to those who long for their return. Bring a quick and bloodless end to these conflicts and spare the lives of the innocent. Grant no increase to the numbers of widows and orphans and relieve the privations of the bereaved and wounded, whether wounded in body or in soul. Restore peace in our day, O Lord, that thy truth may go forth unhindered, for Thou, O Lord, art the Prince of Peace and art ever-glorified with thine unoriginated Father and the all-holy, good, and life-giving Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

2016 Archbishop's Charity and Development Drive (ABCD)
ABCD: Give and You Shall Receive
Our church is a place to pray, to give thanks, to mourn and to celebrate. A place for us all to unite in need and abundance to have mercy, lift each other up and ease pain and suffering. A place people turn to in their time of need. We are all instruments of God's mercy and peace. Our church, our family uniting to help those in need.
Thank you to all who have already generously responded to this year's ABCD. Your support strengthens the ministries that serve our Archdiocese and allow the Church to form new disciples. As Scriptures remind us, Give and it shall be given to you. Your neighbor needs you. You are the answer to someone's prayers, and together, we are changing lives.
If you have yet to respond to this year's ABCD, please take a moment to reflect upon the many blessings the Lord has given you and how He is calling you to respond this incredibly important annual campaign. To make a gift, you can obtain a pledge envelope from the parish office or you can make a gift online at www.isupportabcd.org. Let us all unite through our support of this year's ABCD so that we can be One in Faith, One in Hope and One in Charity.
