In this celebration we are reminded of the great gift of our catholicity, the universality of our faith among those who come to our Diocese from throughout the world and who each share our common faith in the Lord. I invite you to join me in solidarity and prayer for the celebrations being observed in your local deanery, that they each may be a source of renewal in understanding and love of Christ, but also a reminder of how we are each called to be of service to Our Lord, His Church and Her mission here in eastern North Carolina. May Our Lord continue to bless us with the rich heritage of faith among all who are now part of our Diocesan family and may Mary, Mother of the Church, protect and guide you and your loved ones always. Sincerely in Christ, Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of Raleigh AROUND THE DIOCESE If you are suffering from an abortion, experience the love of Jesus Christ at a Project Rachel weekend retreat November 7-9.

World Mission Sunday October 19, 2014 is World Mission Sunday, a day when we not only pray for those most in need in our world, but also assist them by our annual special collection, which assists missionaries throughout the world in providing direct service as they spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to all people. While we may not serve as missionaries, we do participate in their work in attending to those who are poor, the sick, and the downtrodden of the world, as we support missionary efforts through our prayer and financial support. Thank you for your great generosity. MINISTERIO HISPANO – OCTUBRE 12 -2014 LA SACRAMENTALIDAD DEL MATRIMONIO VIENE DEL DOMINGO PASADO: Las Summas Teológicas de los siglos XII y XIII formularon ya las definiciones sistemáticas de los sacramentos, pero tiene un significado particular la definición de Santo Tomás: "Non omne signum rei sacrae est sacramentum, sed solum ea quae significant perfectionem sanctitatis humanae" (3.ª qu. 60, a. 2). Desde entonces se entendió como "sacramento" exclusivamente cada una de las siete fuentes de la gracia y los estudios de los teólogos apuntaron sobre la profundización de la esencia y de la acción de los siete sacramentos, elaborando, de manera sistemática, las líneas principales contenidas en la tradición escolástica. Sólo en el último siglo se ha prestado atención a los aspectos del sacramento, desatendidos en el curso de los siglos, por ejemplo a su dimensión eclesial y al encuentro personal con Cristo, que han encontrado expresión en la Constitución sobre la Liturgia (núm. 59). Sin embargo, el Vaticano II torna, sobre todo, al significado originario del "sacramentumm-misterium", denominando a la Iglesia "sacramento de la íntima unión con Dios y de la unidad de todo género humano" (Lumen gentium, 1). Aquí entendemos el sacramento -de acuerdo con su significado originario- como realización del eterno plan divino referente a la salvación de la humanidad. Pregunta para reflexionar: ¿Qué se entiende por "sacramento"?

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE - La Virgen María tiene siglos de estar apareciéndose a los cristianos. Aún antes de que fuese asunta al cielo, ella ya se le había aparecido al apóstol Santiago en Zaragoza, España. Según una antigua leyenda, Santiago llegó a tierra española en el año 40 para predicar el Evangelio. Tuvo poco éxito y desanimado pensaba sacudirse de los pies el polvo de aquella tierra y buscar convertir otras gentes. Mientras estaba en oración, María, la madre de Jesús, se le apareció con palabras de consuelo, ánimo y un pequeño obsequio. Le dio una imagen de ella misma sobre un pilar y con el Niño Jesús en brazos. En esa tierra ella pidió la construcción de un templo donde ella misma sería altar para la gloria de Dios. Santiago mismo construyó la primera iglesia donde hoy se encuentra una gran basílica en honor de Nuestra Señora del Pilar. En el siglo XVIII, el Papa Clemente XII declaró el 12 de octubre como su fiesta en memoria de la llegada de los europeos al continente americano. De —Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright © J. S.
