Our Lady of Good Counsel Meetings Parish Council - meets every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 6:00PM Knights of Columbus - meet every 4th Tuesday of the month at 6:30PM Mother Cabrini - meets every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 2PM & 6:30PM SVdP - meets every 1st & 3rd Monday of the month at 5:30PM Dearly beloved in Christ, Saint John Paul II, in one of his writings tells of an incident in Poland, how the people would gather each Sunday to read the prayers of the Mass. There was no priest available during the Soviet occupation to say the Mass. These Catholics were putting themselves at risk to pray together. We see in them a great love for the Holy Mass. We, as Catholics have a great love for the Holy Sacrifice. The Catechism of the Catholic Church has many points about the Eucharist, one of them tells us: “The sacrifice of Christ and the sacrifice of the Eucharist are one single sacrifice: ‘The victim is one and the same: the same now offers through the ministry of priests, who then offered himself on the cross; only the manner of offering is different.’ "In this divine sacrifice which is celebrated in the Mass, the same Christ who offered himself once in a bloody manner on the altar of the cross is contained and is offered in an unbloody manner." (CCC No. 1367). The purposes of the Mass are to adore God, to thank him, to pray for our sins and to ask him for spiritual and material blessings. It is like dealing with a great friend; we thank them for favors, ask their help and tell them we are sorry if we offended them. Saint John Paul II tells us: “The Eucharist is the summit of the whole Christian life because the faithful bring to it all their prayers and good works, their joys and sufferings. Our modest offerings are then united to the perfect sacrifice of Christ, and are thus completely sanctified and lifted up to God in an act of perfect worship that brings the faithful into the divine intimacy.” (Go in Peace, p. 129, John Paul II, Loyola Press). St. Josemaría taught that the Holy Mass is the center and root of our spiritual life. It is an action of the Trinity. (cf. Christ is Passing By, No. 85-87). From what the Mass is, it is easy to realize why the Church teaches that there is a serious obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation, and “Those who deliberately fail in this obligation commit a grave sin” (cf. CCC No 2181). From the Mass we are sent forth to evangelize the world. In Christ, Rev.

Our worship on earth reflects the worship in heaven. What we do here at the holy sacrifice of the Mass is a kind of distant echo of what goes on in heaven. There, the Lamb of God is offered in one timeless and eternal sacrifice. There the saints and angels worship around the throne of the Lamb. In that city there is no sun, moon, or stars, for the Lamb Himself is the light of that city. This altar you see is a reflection of the altar in heaven. The chalice is a sign of the eternal Precious Blood of the Lamb. The host is, on earth, the sign of the Eternal Bread of heaven. The priest is an icon of Christ the Lord — and who are you? You represent and reflect on earth the heavenly host. That’s right. I want you to represent the saints and angels. That’s why we have children and teens serve the Mass if we can, because you remind us adults of what the Lord Jesus said: “Unless you become like a little child, you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.” So just by being child-like you remind us what we must be like to become like the saints and angels. Therefore, since you represent the heavenly host of saints and angels, I want you to behave as such. Of course, I know that you are not yet saints, and I know you are not angels. You fight with your brothers and sisters. You disobey your parents. Nevertheless, you have a role to play in the Divine Liturgy, because despite all that, you are called to reflect something greater. You are called from what you are not to become all that you shall be; and if you are struck with a sense of awe at what I am expecting of you, think how I feel, for I am a sinner just like you are, and I am called to represent Christ Himself to the people. When you process into church, remember that you are leading the whole people of God into the presence of God. Our little procession hearkens back to the procession of David and the priests up into the holy city of Zion. The cross will be lifted high, and you will walk with a solemn and stately posture, for you are leading all of us into the presence of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Know where you are going, and move there with the grace of a child and the dignity of a prince. As you sit in the sanctuary, remember that actions speak louder than words. You may not have many tasks to do, but did you know that they also serve who only stand and wait? Simply by your presence, your reverence, your listening to the Word of God with an attentive ear, you will help to lead the worship and encourage those who see you. When you have a task to do, do it with simplicity and confidence. Remember that what we do at Mass is the most important thing in your life. Everything else comes after that. Seek first the kingdom of God, and everything else will be added to you. At Mass you are seeing that beauty, truth, and love are the three most important treasures on earth, and they are three things you cannot buy. Furthermore, while they are most precious, they are also (from a human point of view) most worthless. What you are doing when you serve at Mass is not a useful thing. There is no payment. There is no reward — except the reward of knowing that your heart is right with God, and that you have spent an hour on the threshold of heaven. And if you have learned how to do that, then throughout your life, whatever else happens, you will be most richly blessed. May God bless you and protect you all the days of your life. In Christ, Fr. Victor Jagerstatter Saint John Paul II Monthly Lectures: Father Victor will be giving hour-long classes and lectures on different topics that involves our Catholic Faith every last Wednesday of the month at 7PM in the parish hall. This month is on the 24th of June. The topic for this month is TBA. Please join us and bring a friend, too if you can. See you there! Thank you! Are You Going On Vacation? Many of our parish families are planning to get away for some summer fun and relaxation in the next few months. We pray that your vacation time will be safe and a source of many happy memories. However, please don’t take your parish offering with you. Each summer our parish office struggles to juggle the bills as Sunday offerings decrease significantly. If you find that you tend to forget your envelope more often during the less structured weeks of summer, please consider our electronic giving program. Go to olgcid.org It’s simple! It’s safe! And it keeps God at the top of your giving list even when you are away!

Los sobres se encuentran ubicados en la parte posterior de la iglesia y pueden ser colocados en la canasta de la colecta o usted puede donar en línea en www.catholicidaho.org Nuestros Mártires de Hoy El Papa volvió a pedir a la comunidad internacional que “no asista muda a este inaceptable crimen”. “Pidamos la ayuda tangible, concreta, y la protección de nuestros hermanos y hermanas perseguidos, exiliados, huidos, decapitados por el sólo hecho de ser cristianos. Ellos son nuestros mártires de hoy, y son tantos, son más numerosos que en el primer siglo”. Estas palabras las pronunció durante el rezo del Regina Coeli desde el balcón de San Pedro del Vaticano, el pasado Domingo de Resurrección. El Papa volvió a recordar el drama de los cristianos perseguidos en el mundo, a la vez, reclamó que “la comunidad internacional no asista muda e inerte a este inaceptable crimen, que constituye una preocupante deriva de los derechos humanos más elementales”. “Que no mire hacia otra parte”, clamó el Papa. Con anterioridad, Francisco quiso referirse al hecho de la Resurrección, y a su vinculación con la construcción de un mundo nuevo. “Galilea fue la periferia donde Jesús comenzó su predicación, y donde partirá el Evangelio de la Resurrección, para que sea anunciado a todos”, arrancó Bergoglio, quien recordó a los miles de fieles presentes aquel día en San Pedro que “por el Bautismo, todos somos resucitados, presentes y protagonistas de la historia; por él hemos pasado de la muerte a la vida, de la esclavitud del pecado a la libertad del amor”. Así, “la fe en la resurrección de Jesús y la esperanza que nos ha dado es lo más bello que los cristianos podemos y debemos ofrecer a nuestros hermanos. Con la palabra, pero sobre todo con el testimonio de nuestra vida”. “Anunciamos la resurrección de Cristo cuando su luz refleja en todo momento nuestra existencia y podemos compartirla con los otros; cuando sabemos sufrir con quien sufre y llorar con quien llora; cuando caminamos junto al que está triste y ha perdido la esperanza; cuando contamos nuestra experiencia de fe con felicidad”, culminó Francisco. Oración a San Miguel Arcángel O San Miguel, Arcángel defiéndenos en la batalla. Se nuestra protección contra el mal y las trampas del Diablo; humildemente te rogamos que Dios los reprenda. O Príncipe Celestial de la Santa Hostia, que con la ayuda de Dios eches a Satanás al infierno y a los espíritus que andan dispersos por el mundo para arruinar las almas Amen Formación de Fe Hemos empezado preinscripción para Formación de Fe para el año escolar 2015-2016.

Women—June 11-14 @ Our Lady of the Rosary in Boise Contact: Barb Dauner 859-5971 or [email protected] Men—June 25-28 @ Our Lady of the Rosary in Boise Contact: Mark McCormack 863-6933 or [email protected] THE JOY OF THE GOSPEL, para. 66-72 in the book: God created “family” to reflect His Love in the world. The strength of family life is the basis for how people adapt in society. If prayer and faith is not taught to our children within the family circle, we cannot expect the children to learn how to survive life’s trials once they leave home. What children see and hear at home is what they expect and bring out into the world and pass on to others. If there is no responsibility or respect in the home, there will be no responsibility or respect in any other area of their lives. Question: How can I help change the culture where I live? What might God be calling me to do to evangelize the culture, either individually or with other Christians? How can I strengthen my own marriage and support the marriages of others?
