whole world for us. It is a world of hope in the midst of
chaos, a universe in which the power of mercy
overwhelms guilt and despair. It is an existence in which
God is fully alive, and so are we. Such is the grace of an
encounter with the living God. -from Encounter Jesus

33 DOMINGO ORDINARIO
16 DE NOVIEMBRE DE 2014
Hoy escuchamos la parábola del Señor que repartió
talentos. Cuando regresó el señor, Recompensó a
los que duplicaron los talentos que habían recibido
y los invitó a pasar al banquete, símbolo de la
salvación. Castigó al que escondió el talento y no lo
hizo fructificar: le quitó el talento y lo lanzó a las
tinieblas símbolo de la condenación. Hemos de ser
buenos administradores de los bienes que hemos
recibido de Dios para alcanzar la salvación. Es la
aplicación de la parábola de los talentos. Se trata
de los bienes sobrenaturales que cada uno ha
recibido de Dios. Tenemos que hacerlos producir.
Esto es: hemos recibido el don de la vida
sobrenatural de la gracia y tenemos que crecer en
ella para dar la medida que Dios espera. Y Dios,
cuando venga, nos ha de pedir cuentas. Nos
recompensará si hemos hecho fructificar los dones
que de Él hemos recibido. Entonces, seremos
invitados al banquete del Reino, nos salvaremos.
NOVENA A LA VIRGEN DE LA MEDALLA MILAGROSA
Un camino hacia Dios de la mano de María. Los segundos
martes de cada mes a las 7:30PM en la Iglesia de San
Bartolomé. Día final: 9 de Diciembre. Rezada en español,
con exposición del Santísimo Sacramento. Información
con María Lelia Orozco: 301-469-0103. Los esperamos a
todos para continuar con esta tradición de San Bartolomé.

El domingo 23 de noviembre, el grupo de Juventud de San
Bartolomé invita a todos los jóvenes a nuestra cena
compartida anual. Cada uno de nosotros traerá un plato
de comida tradicional de la familia para compartir. Nos
