2020 Archbishop's Charity and Development Drive
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GIFT!
With a grateful heart, thank you to those who generously made a commitment to the 2020 Archbishop’s Charities and Development Drive (ABCD). As of today, $32,168.00 has been pledged by our Parish. That is 67% of our goal. We are truly grateful for the love and support of our parish community to help serve our Church above and beyond what happens here in our parish.
If you have not made a gift to the ABCD yet, we need your help to reach our parish goal of $48,031.00. Please make your pledge and return it to the church office or in the collection basket. We are confident that, with God’s help and yours, we will unite as a Catholic community to be the eyes, hands and feet of Christ here in South Florida.
Pope Francis’ Intentions for the month of February 2020
Listen to the Migrants' Cries
We pray that the cries of our migrant brothers and sisters, victims of criminal trafficking, may be heard and considered.
Thanks to the generosity of the community of San Isidro, we are able to reach families in need. We need drivers to deliver food every week as much as your monetary contribution. You can make a difference in people's lives and serve the Lord.
If you are aware of Parishioners in need or want to serve in this Ministry, please call (954) 978-2302.
Save The Date
Jesus said to his disciples: “I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
“You have heard that it was said to your ancestors, You shall not kill; and whoever kills will be liable to judgment. But I say to you, whoever is angry with brother will be liable to judgment.
“You have heard that it was said, You shall not commit adultery. But I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
“Again you have heard that it was said to your ancestors, Do not take a false oath, but make good to the Lord all that you vow. But I say to you, do not swear at all. Let your ‘Yes’ mean ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No’ mean ‘No.’ Anything more is from the evil one.”
“If you choose you can keep the commandments,” Sirach tells us. God “has set before you fire and water; to whichever you choose, stretch forth your hand” (Sirach 15:15, 16). This is a great mystery: God does not control us so completely that we cannot choose our own path. We have certain boundaries, of course, but no one but we can choose our way within those boundaries.
In today’s reading from Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus reminds us of our freedom and our responsibility for our lives. He calls us to look beyond the words of the commandments, all the way to their meaning. Look beyond the adultery to the selfishness that poisons our love. Look beyond the murder to the anger that eats away at our compassion. Look beyond the perjured testimony to the lies and deception that drive our behavior.
Our vocation is to choose life for ourselves, and to choose a path through our part of the world that helps make life possible and more abundant for others as well.
