    The first reading today, from the book of Wisdom, makes its point over and over, at least five mes in five verses! God is mighty, but lenient to all. God's power is shown in kindness and clemency, not in harshness and condemna on, those who govern God's people must govern in the same way, with kindness. This loving kindness and gentleness is not contrary to God's might, but is a direct result of God's primacy over all. Who are we, then, to judge what is in the hearts of our fellow Chris ans and all people, when God commands jus ce with love and clemency? Likewise, the Holy Spirit makes up for our ignorance of what we need, speaking in a language we do not yet understand. But God knows our needs before we do, understands the intercessions of the Spirit, and helps us in our weakness. This is our hope: God's mercy, power, and love.


    First Reading -- You taught your people that those who are just must likewise be kind (Wisdom 12:13, 16-19). Psalm -- Lord, you are good and forgiving (Psalm 86:5-16). Second Reading -- The Spirit comes to aid us in our weakness (Romans 8:26-27). Gospel -- Jesus proposes parables to the crowds, teaching them of the reign of God (Ma hew 13:24-43).

    MR. DEEDS GOES TO TOWN is a hilarious combina on of comedy and romance! When small-town innocent Longfellow Deeds heads to New York to collect a $20 million Inheritance,

    he ends up a target of ridicule thanks to Babe Bennet, a cynical reporter whose damaging stories have made him the joke of the city. So when he discovers his sweet girlfriend is really

    Bennet in disguise, he tries to give his fortune away, an act of charity his crooked lawyer will stop at nothing to prevent.

    Come join us for this funny blend of laughter and romance, on Sunday, July 23, in the Chapel at 2:30 p.m.

  • PASTOR’S CORNER JULY 23, 2017 Dear Friends at Saint Paul: Here follows an update of the three required “councils” that our parish is to have as a shared way of s mula ng advice and discernment for the Pastor's work of shepherding and leadership in our parish life. Although the Pastor is the decision-maker, the organic and spiritual reality of those decisions is directly related to the consulta on and prayer that is the founda on for God's leadership of His People. To put it simply: we're not following me! We have to follow God! Please pray for me. Please pray for our Parish. Please pray that our three Leadership Councils – Pastoral, Finance, Catholic School – be constantly aided by God's wonderful Grace. When it comes to prayer, if you have been reading this column: Tag! You're IT!

    As a sign of caring for one another, the

    Church has responded to the needs of those

    who are gluten-intolerant: low gluten hosts are available at

    every Mass upon request. Please let an usher or the sacristan

    know before Mass that there is need for the low gluten host. (This must be done every me as we do not reserve consecrated low-gluten hosts in the Tabernacle). A specifically-

    designated pyx (communion box) is held by the Priest Presider with only low gluten hosts. The

    communicant needs to be in the Presider's line. The communicant iden fies himself or herself to

    the Priest Presider as they approach for communion asking for a low gluten host.

    Of course, should arrangements not be able to be made before Mass, or if low gluten hosts can not

    be tolerated, then it is perfectly acceptable for the gluten intolerant to receive communion under the form of the Precious Blood at any me it is offered.

    (Wine does not contain gluten). Please be aware that care and precau on are taken but the danger of wheat gluten to the gluten-intolerant can not be

    prevented completely. Please also note that "100% gluten free" hosts are not

    possible and are not used.

  • In prepara on for the 15th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, to be held at the

    Va can in October of 2018 on the theme, “Youth, Faith, and Voca onal Discernment,” the Holy See has asked each diocese to submit to its

    na onal episcopal conference a report on youth and young adults.

    The Diocese of Raleigh has created a survey to be distributed directly to young persons aged 13-39, with the inten on of collec ng both demographic data and their personal reflec ons on ques ons

    that will be addressed by the upcoming Synod. The survey is brief, anonymous, and designed to provide informa on

    that, in addi on to providing material for our report, will assist the Diocese in be er serving the faithful of eastern North Carolina.

    The survey is available in both English and Spanish and the links are provided below. It will be published on the Diocesan website, as well

    as through various social media. English: h ps://www.surveymonkey.com/r/raleighcatholic Spanish: h ps://www.surveymonkey.com/r/raleighcatolico Thank you in advance to the youth and young adults of our

    parishes. Please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Michael Bayer, Senior Director for Young Adults, at [email protected] or

    "Jesus loved Martha and Mary and Lazarus." This unique statement in John's gospel tells us of the special rela onship Jesus had with Martha, her sister, and her brother. Apparently Jesus was a frequent guest at Martha's home in Bethany, a small village two miles from Jerusalem. We read of three visits in Luke 10:38-42, John 11:1-53, and John 12:1-9.

    Many of us find it easy to iden fy with Martha in the story Luke tells. Martha welcomes Jesus and his disciples into her home and immediately goes to work to serve them.

    Hospitality is paramount in the Middle East, and Martha believed in its importance. Instead of speaking to her sister, she asks Jesus to intervene. Jesus' response is not unkind, which gives us an idea of his affec on for her. He observes that Martha is worried about many things that distract her from really being present to him. He reminds her that there is only one thing that is truly important -- listening to him. And that is what Mary has done. In Martha, we see ourselves -- worried and distracted by all we have to do in the world and forge ng to spend me with Jesus. It is, however, comfor ng to note that Jesus loved her just the same.

    The next visit shows how well Martha learned this lesson. She is grieving the death of her brother with a house full of mourners when she hears that Jesus has just come to the area. She gets up immediately and leaves the guests, leaves her mourning, and goes to meet him. Her conversa on with Jesus shows her faith and courage. In this dialogue she states clearly without doubt that she believes in Jesus' power, in the Resurrec on, and most of all that Jesus is the Son of God. Our final picture of Martha in Scripture is the one that sums up who she was: Jesus has returned to Bethany some me later to share a meal with his good friends. In this home were three extraordinary people. We hear how brother Lazarus caused a s r when he was brought back to life. We hear how Mary causes a commo on at dinner by anoin ng Jesus with expensive perfume. But all we hear about Martha is the simple statement: "Martha served." She isn't in the spotlight, she doesn't do showy things, she doesn't receive spectacular miracles. She simply serves Jesus.

    We know nothing more about Martha and what happened to her later. According to legend, Martha accompanied Mary to evangelize France a er Pentecost. But wouldn't it be wonderful if the most important thing that could be said about us is "They served"? Her feast day is on July 29th. Martha is the patron saint of servants and cooks.

    These are the weeks of parables, and although we have heard them all many mes, they never lose their freshness; if we look, we can perceive

    a new, fresh insight. The parable of the weeds and the wheat, so

    simple on its surface, is puzzling enough for the disciples to ask Jesus for an explana on. In our own gardens, we tend to yank up the weeds all through the growing season. But in the parable, the weeds and the wheat are allowed to grow

    together un l the harvest. If the good people and the evil people remain mixed throughout life, it puzzles us some mes: why are people who do

    bad things not punished? How is it that God allows bad things to happen to good people?
