Information will be available soon.   Called to Transformation   The readings this Sunday remind us that our presence at Eucharist calls us to transformation. Because of the Eucha-rist we cannot be the same person this Sunday as last. Our first reading from Exodus assures us that God is a God of abundance and that God is not indifferent to the needs of the world. Hunger, thirst, oppression, injustice all matter to God. Our Creator, God, creates enough for every-one.   It is in our pursuit for “food that perishes,” (Jn. 6:27) the desire for power over and control of others, the need for the respect of others, the craving for material goods, etc., that leads us to destroy the reputation and lives of other people. These desires give us permission to destroy our earth, and that sanctions “not enough for all.”   Moreover, our quest for fulfilling “deceitful desires” (Eph. 4:23)   inevitably creates vio-lence to our own soul and spirit while obstructing the peace and freedom of “enough.” Pope Francis states “Communion with the Lord is neces-sarily a communion with our fellow brothers and sisters.  And therefore the one who is fed and nourished by the very body and blood of Christ cannot remain unaffected when he sees his brothers (and sisters) suffering want and hun-ger.” As we partake in the Eucharist today we are com-pelled to bring this “food that gives life” (Jn. 6:27) to each encounter God offers us this week, to each news story God puts before us, and to each opportunity God gives us to use our voice to lovingly address the hunger, thirst, oppres-sion and injustice in society.   Saint Paul reminds us that we are to “be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on the new self, created in God's way in righteousness and holiness of truth.” (Eph.:24) If you are not transformed by Eucharist today, then our Eu-charist is incomplete. As Pedro Arrupe, whose cause for beatification was recently announced, stated:   “If there is hunger anywhere in the world, then our celebra-tion of the Eucharist is somehow incomplete everywhere in the world …. In the Eucharist we receive Christ hungering in the world. He comes to us, not alone, but with the poor, the oppressed, the starving of the earth. Through Him they are looking to us for help, for justice, for love expressed in action. Therefore we cannot properly receive the Bread of Life unless at the same time we give the bread of life to those in need wherever and whoever they may be.” (Pedro  Arrupe SJ, Servant of God)   Sr. Maryann Mueller, CSSF   Franciscan Action Network Board Member    Peace & Everything Good,   Father Jim   “Then a cloud came, casting a shadow over them; from the cloud came a voice, ‘This is my beloved  Son. Listen to him.” (Mark 9: 7, Lectonary  ) CNS/Nancy Wiechec “I wish to be before You as light as a feather, so that Your breath may carry me where You will.”   St. Katharine Drexel    Sanctuary Lamp...August 11 -  August 17   Bob Riley (Charlotte Lake)      Page 3   August 5, 2018 Minister Schedule for August 11 & 12   Lectors   Sat. 4:00 pm   M.
