Thoughts from Fr. Richard Pensamientos de Padre Ricardo


Fr. TC George comes back to say THANKS. BOSCO Bangalore, the project for the children on the streets, won the National Award for the best Child Welfare Organization in India! Dear friends of BOSCO, I bring you the gratitude of thousands of kids who benefitted from our services given by the Salesians and the volunteers at the BOSCO care centers. During the past year alone, 6643 boys and girls passed through the BOSCO Yuvodaya - the 3-in-one care center - built with the help of the St. Bonaventure Catholic Community. This shows how the many beneficiaries, the most disadvantaged and the vulnerable ones of the society, are given hope through our project. Fr. Richard, our Pastor, and our friends who visited the project in 2014 can vouch for it. I invite you to continue your partnership with us in offering a bright future to thousands of poor boys and girls, through your generosity. I thank Fr. Richard for allowing me to take a second collection for the BOSCO Project on the weekend of July 9/10. There are over 300 boys and girls who reside in our care centers, and daily depend on us for their food, education, health care, etc. Can you sponsor a child, making a donation of $250 per year? Donations can be made by check, payable to the order of “St. Bonaventure Church” (for Fr.TC George/ BOSCO). Our faith challenges us to charity. And our charity brings hope to the hopeless. All I want to say is, “You made it happen! We thank you! We love you! We need you!” Our efforts are bearing fruits, by God’s grace and through your help. May the name of the Lord be blessed! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I will be visiting St. Bonaventure till July 18. Fr. TC George,sdb, 925 378 8908 (till July 18 only); [email protected]

WELCOME FR KEVIN AS PAROCHIAL VICAR We welcome Fr. Kevin Schindler-McGraw as our new full-time Pastoral Vicar. For some time, Fr. Kevin has been wanting to work in a parish setting, rather than in office ministry supporting the Provincial of the Franciscan province, of which he has been a part. We have prepared a job description for his work, which enables him to work here but live part-time in community with his fellow friars in Castro Valley. Fr. Kevin has been living with us for the latter part of June and will continue until mid-July on a mini sabbatical. He  will begin his duties as a Parochial Vicar on August 1. Fr. Kevin will be available for the complete variety of pastoral work: the celebration of the Sacraments, pastoral counselling, and being present to various ministries and outreaches. You may reach Fr. Kevin by phoning the parish phone number (6725800) and leaving a message for him.


St. Bonaventure Parish is in full compliance with the Safe Environment Charter mandates for the Diocese of Oakland for this audit year (July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016).

Upon their The New York Daily News reported arrival, the children were presented with in October 2015 that “the worldwide backpacks containing small toys and refugee crisis has displaced a record 60 snacks, which were provided by F2F million people from their homes – the committee members. most since the end of World War II.” In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis It took the family three days to travel to has encouraged parishes to host refugee the Bay Area from their home in Kabul, families, and has asked bishops to have Afghanistan, where they lived in a nice their dioceses “express the Gospel in home with Najib’s parents, his brother, concrete terms” by taking in a refugee and his brother’s family within a secure family.

Just hours before their arrival, CCEB was able to secure a small two-bedroom apartment for the family in Bay Point. When the Ahmadi family arrived, the apartment was completely empty— there was no furniture and no food—no necessities whatsoever. F2F committee members have worked tirelessly since the Ahmadis’ arrival to furnish the family’s apartment and stock their refrigerator and pantry. Thanks to the generosity of the St. Bonaventure community, the family now has a stocked kitchen as well as furniture, including beds, a chest of drawers, a dining room set, and a sofa and love seat. The St. Bonaventure parishioners also took up the cause and purchased many necessary items, however, the Ahmadis still need a set of bunkbeds (for the older children), a laptop computer (for Najib’s job search), and toys for the children. Najib is very humble and deeply appreciative of F2F’s efforts on his family’s behalf. He is also very independent and proud, preferring to walk the neighborhood to familiarize himself with his new surroundings whenever possible rather than relying on others for rides. The Ahmadi family will receive some support from Cal Fresh, however they will fall short each month until Najib can get a job. He is very anxious to find a job as soon as possible as he believes that it is his sole responsibility to provide for his family. When the Ahmadi family was taken to the local food bank and explained how it operated, Najib declined to accept food. He was thankful for us showing him the location of the food bank so that he can make donations of food there as soon as he is able. Plans for a St. Bonaventure welcome party for Najib, Zainab, Faisal, Marwan, and Bilal are in progress. In the meantime, please pray for this lovely young family as they embark on a new life. For more information, you may contact Irene Alonzo-Perez at 925-768-3122. Parish Life Thoughts continued on page 4

If you or someone you know is grieving the death of a loved one, we’d like to invite you to attend the Healing the Heart workshop. The workshop provides a safe place to express grief and begin healing after the loss of a loved one. Our grief companions have also lost someone who is dear to them and know the value of having someone listen with their heart. They recognize that each person’s grief is unique. The death of a loved one is unlike any other


loss. Whether the death was sudden and tragic, or one with warning and preparation, the reality of death leaves most of us shocked, confused and sad. These feelings may linger for years. The grief workshop is a six-week program characterized by trust in prayer, open sharing and spirituality. It is a Christ-centered program, but you do not have to be a member of St. Bonaventure’s parish or a Catholic to attend. It is open to anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one. The loss may have been a recent one or a long time ago. The next grief workshop begins Tuesday evening, August 23, from 7:30-9:00pm at St. Bonaventure Church. Registration is required by August 10. There is no cost to attend the workshop. Please call Helene Billeci at (925) 686-4870 for more information and to register. MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER

Año jubilar de la Misericordia Décimo Quinto Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

¿Puede alguien negar que la lección suprema de misericordia de Jesús, sea la parábola del buen samaritano? ¡Jesús tenía una audiencia devotamente religiosa! Quienes no simpatizaban con aquellas personas lo suficientemente tontas como para recorrer el “camino a Jericó” solas. Esta ruta era conocida por su índice de criminalidad. Mucha simpatía por el sacerdote y el levita, apresurándose a asignarles un ministerio en el templo, sin querer correr el riesgo de cometer un ritual de impureza a través de la práctica de la misericordia. Ninguna simpatía por Jesús, el héroe escandaloso. Los Samaritanos eran religiosos apostatas y enemigos políticos. Jesús desafía al Maestro de la ley — y hoy a nosotros — a buscar la presencia de Dios no sólo en la belleza litúrgica sino en las desdichas y aflicciones de un compañero de viaje. Ver la presencia de Dios incluso en alguien fuera de la ley, quien practica la misericordia no por obligación religiosa, sino por la bondad instintiva del corazón. ¿Puesto que Jesús se convirtió en nuestro “buen samaritano” a pesar de nuestra necedad y pecados, quiénes somos nosotros para racionar nuestra misericordia? “¿Quién es mi prójimo?” (Lucas 10:29). ¡Es la próxima persona que veamos que necesita misericordia! Sin condiciones, sin límites, sin excepciones. Especialmente en este Año Jubilar de la Misericordia, cumplamos el mandamiento de Jesús, “vayan y hagan lo mismo” (10:37).

Frases del Papa Francisco

Jesús manda a los suyos sin “talega, ni alforja, ni sandalias” (Lc 10,4). La difusión del Evangelio no está asegurada ni por el número de personas, ni por el prestigio de la institución, ni por la cantidad de recursos disponibles. Lo que cuenta es estar imbuidos del amor de Cristo, dejarse conducir por el Espíritu Santo, e injertar la propia vida en el árbol de la vida, que es la Cruz del Señor.

SAINT BONAVENTURE CATHOLIC CHURCH—IGLESIA CATÓLICA DE SAN BUENAVENTURA July 10, 2016 Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time — 10 de julio de 2016 Decimoquinto Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario Jesús Modelo de Misericordia

La parábola del buen samaritano que hoy leemos en el Evangelio de San Lucas nos pone en claro cómo debemos vivir la ley de la caridad, el amor a Dios y a nuestros hermanos. Para convencernos de que no basta hablar ni proclamar de palabra lo que aceptamos por la fe, para probarnos que la caridad y el amor de Dios son algo más que poesía, Jesús respondió a un doctor de la Ley que repetía como un verdadero maestro el texto del mandamiento del amor: “Bien dicho. Haz esto y tendrás la vida.” O sea, que no basta saber, ni predicar, ni enseñar. Hay que actuar, practicar obras de amor y de misericordia, porque de lo contrario no tendremos “la vida”, la vida eterna de la que Cristo habló tantas veces. Y para que no quedara ninguna duda de cómo practicar el primer mandamiento, Jesús usa una historia imaginaria, una figura fácil de entender por cualquier persona, por poco letrado que sea: usa la parábola del buen samaritano. El sacerdote que paso de largo nos sirve de ejemplo para saber que la caridad no es ciencia, ni profesión. Tampoco es fe, aunque deben ir juntas. La caridad es una actividad permanente de bondad, amor, y servicio. Es la base de la vida del cristiano y sin ella, al decir de San Pablo, somos “como campanas que resuenan.” El levita, que es como decir “gente de la Iglesia”, que pasa despreocupado del infeliz herido que yace junto al camino, es la figura de los cristianos cómodos de ayer y de hoy que creen cumplir con Dios yendo a la Iglesia de vez en cuando y echando algunas monedas sonantes en el platillo de la colecta dominical. Desde el Antiguo Testamento, el señor nos advierte que el mandamiento de la caridad con el prójimo está más cerca de nosotros” en nuestro corazón. Y en el Nuevo Testamento, Cristo, “primogénito de toda criatura”, nos ha enseñado el modo de guardarlo. Si somos sus discípulos, hagamos lo que el nos dice. Así en el mundo habrá más amor y más esperanza. Dios los guarde. Diácono Mariano Preza.
