Help Prepare Young Men for Overseas Mission
Father Raymond Finch
Support Our Mission
Dear Dinh,

We have been blessed not once—but twice! And that's in great part thanks to you, our loyal partners in mission.
On May 20 two dedicated young men called by God became Maryknoll priests. Fathers Daniel Kim and Peter Latouf have recently joined the legacy of all the Maryknoll priests who have made the commitment to go overseas and demonstrate God's love and mercy to the poor.

Although they came about deciding on being priests in different ways, their desire to connect with people of different cultures and be of service to them have brought both Frs. Kim and Latouf to Maryknoll.

I see so much hope and promise in these young men. Your prayers at every step of their amazing journey will provide a lot of love and support.

"A vocation flows from the heart of God and blossoms in the good soil of faithful people..."

Pope Francis
Help Our Global Mission
Dinh, your prayers and gifts will make sure that Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers continues to prepare young men for religious life for years to come. Your support will help missioners like Frs. Kim and Latouf continue to do God's work for the poor and less fortunate overseas.

Thank you for participating in a legacy of faith that is more than 100 years old.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Raymond J. Finch, M.M.

"Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid."​

John 14:27
Dear Deacon Nguyen,

Do you ever feel like a piece of Swiss cheese, like there are holes or places of emptiness inside?
God means for those holes to be filled with Him. His love for us so far outweighs anything this life can dish out.

I believe the closest thing to God's love on this earth is that of a mother for her child. And who better to celebrate today than our Blessed Mother, the one who said the loudest "YES!" in response to the prospect of motherhood?

Something mystical happens when a woman holds her child for the first time, a transformation involving a complex physiological process of the heart, brain, hormones, nerves, and almost every part of the body—and spirit—of the new mother. A Parenting Magazine article entitled "The New Science of Mother-Baby Bonding" concluded with the following statement by bonding researcher Francesca D'Amato, MD, "The mother-child bond assures infant survival in terms of protection, nutrition, and care".

Jesus was no different in His need for the mother-child bond, requiring the nurturing of His mother's love to bring Him to adulthood. The anxiety felt by all parents must have been multiplied manifold for Mary.

Prayer for Mother's Day​

Mother of God, Mary most holy
give us the grace and courage
to follow your example:
submit to God's will
receive the Holy Spirit
treasure God's Word in our heart
and give flesh to that Word
in our lives.

O most blessed among women,
for nine months you cherished
our Lord in your womb.
He whom the universe cannot contain
chose you as his new Temple.
Bless all women and all mothers
with a deeper appreciation
of the great mystery of life
love and faith that they embody
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

~ Father Joseph R. Veneroso, M.M.
Dinh, I celebrate all mothers today. May you have the gift of Jesus' deep and lasting peace, a confident assurance in any circumstance—no "Swiss cheese emptiness" there! Mary did not succumb to fear as a refugee escaping King Herod's evil decree; trusted God's wisdom when her pre-adolescent son "went missing" to teach in the synagogue; and bravely walked alongside our Lord as He was crucified. So, too, should we allow the peace of God to move into our hearts and lives in the face of all challenges and take up permanent residence therein.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Raymond J. Finch, M.M.

"The shear wonder of sheep!"

"The LORD is my shepherd;- there is nothing I lack. In green pastures he makes me lie down; to still waters he leads me; he restores my soul. He guides me along right paths - for the sake of his name."​

Psalm 23:1-3
Dear Deacon Nguyen,

I am careful about the words I choose and try never to use the word "stupid".
In the case of sheep, however, I do make an exception!

Born and bred in Brooklyn, New York, I had not had a lot of contact with sheep. As a young missioner in the Peruvian Altiplano, I found myself in the middle of these not-so-bright animals. Every family had twenty or more sheep. Needing careful and constant attention—a sheep on its back cannot right itself—these animals frequently get into dangerous situations and often wandered away from their shepherd. An unfamiliar voice often caused them to scatter. We can be like sheep when it comes to following the wrong voice sometimes.

King David's popular psalm fills the reader with a sense of being cared for in all circumstances of life. It is replete with the imagery of a calming meditation. As I picture that pastoral scene and refreshing water, I know to whom I can entrust my very soul.

With God as our shepherd, we have all that we need—provision. We don't have to navigate through this perilous life alone and in a state of anxious anticipation—peace. When beyond consolation, we needn't stay in a place of despair—restoration. And when we follow the flock in the wrong direction, He shows us the path toward His glory—guidance.

Prayer for 4th Sunday of Easter​

Lord Jesus, you are both
Good Shepherd and Lamb of God.
Help us hear your voice
above the din of this world
and remain in your fold
confident should we stray
you would come to lead us home.

O Lamb of God, you offered yourself
to take away our sins and
those of the world
may we follow your example
and live our lives for others
lightening their burdens
and filling their hearts
with peace, joy and love.

Amen.

~ Father Joseph R. Veneroso, M.M.
Dinh, are you listening for your Shepherd's voice today? If we follow Him, He will give us courage to face even our darkest hour; correction that lifts us up when we fall; protection from our enemies; joy in the blessing of an anointing and calling for our lives; and the promise of one of the many mansions in His Father's house when our work is done here.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Raymond J. Finch, M.M.

"My brothers, one can confidently say to you about the patriarch David that he died and was buried, and his tomb is in our midst to this day. But since he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn an oath to him that he would set one of his descendants upon his throne, he foresaw and spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that neither was he abandoned to the netherworld nor did his flesh see corruption. God raised this Jesus; of this we are all witnesses."​

Acts 2:29-32
Dear Deacon Nguyen,

The prophets had foretold the coming of the Messiah.
The Savior who was and is to come was the very one who died upon the cross and rose again to save us all.

The arrival of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost is one of four most important days in the New Testament. When Peter addressed the crowd of Israelites that day, he quoted the prophet Joel and the ancestor of the future Messiah, King David, to remind them of their Holy Scriptures.

"And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will escape harm" (Joel 3:5) and "...for you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, nor let your devout one see the pit." (Psalm 16:10) respectively speak to the events at Pentecost and the miracle of Christ's resurrection.

The term "new age" takes on a new meaning in the context of Pentecost—an age of ministry and dispensation. The belief that sins could be forgiven—not through ritualistic offerings and laws—but through God's infinite mercy manifested in Jesus was revolutionary!

The "helper" that our Lord promised His disciples is present to every believer, who from Pentecost on has a new intimacy with God. The Spirit gives us peace greater than any the world can offer, enabling us to do great things in Jesus' name and providing a mirror into God's heart through the souls of His followers.

Prayer for Third Sunday of Easter​

O God of eternally marvelous deeds, we adore You and thank You for the witnesses of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. You inspired prophets long before Him and You continue to inspire His many disciples to this day to open our hearts to let Your Spirit guide us infallibly. Our human way of following customs and rules has its good but limited role in our daily comings and goings. We may not cooperate very well at times with the Spirit, but we believe that Your promptings will ever be with us and that we will live fuller lives in with You always.

Amen.

~ Father John P. Martin, M.M.
Dinh, Jesus is the liberator who hailed from the Messianic line of David that the Israelites had long-anticipated. The prophets predicted His arrival, death and resurrection. King David's remains are in his tomb to this day, yet Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father forever.

Chuyện mới vào lễ Phục sinh - Tháng 4-2017

Oneway.vn – Câu chuyện lạ lùng, hy hữu như thể được trích ra từ Kinh Thánh: một mục sư bí mật phục vụ Chúa ở Trung Đông vừa làm chứng rằng 3 con sư tử đã đến giải cứu ông và nhóm tín hữu khỏi các binh sĩ Hồi giáo cực đoan.
Mục sư Paul Siniraj và trẻ em Trung Đông

Mục sư Paul Ciniraj là giám đốc trung tâm Bibles for Mideast (Kinh Thánh cho Trung Đông), một mục vụ Cơ đốc chuyên phân phát Kinh Thánh và rao giảng Tin Lành. Ông đã mô tả chi tiết câu chuyện về 3 con sư tử đã giải cứu ông và nhóm tín hữu khỏi nhóm ISIS.

Ông viết: "Chúa tôi, Đức Chúa Jesus Phục Sinh đã cứu sống tôi lần nữa, tôi ngợi khen và cảm tạ Chúa vì ân sủng không kể xiết của Ngài!"

Câu chuyện bắt đầu vào 3 tuần trước, khi ông vừa làm phép Rửa tội cho một số người mới tin Chúa thì một nhóm binh sĩ đến ném đá xối xả vào họ.

Ông được đưa đến bệnh viện chuyên khoa vì chấn thương nghiêm trọng ở đầu. Tuy nhiên, các binh sĩ Hồi giáo lại phát hiện ra bệnh viện nơi ông điều trị và ông buộc phải rời đi.

Mục sư Paul được bí mật chuyển đến nhà mục sư Ayyoob, một người Hồi giáo đã cải đạo Tin Lành, đang sống gần một khu rừng cùng gia đình. Các tín hữu bí mật thăm viếng ông và hiệp lòng cầu nguyện.

Khoảng 3 tuần sau, vào chủ nhật Phục Sinh 16.4.2017 vừa qua, mục sư Ayyoob đang hướng dẫn thờ nhóm phượng thì đột nhiên một nhóm binh sĩ mang vũ khí, gậy gộc xộc tới.

Mục sư Paul kể: "Chúng tôi không biết phải làm gì ngoài gọi Chúa". Ông chưa hoàn toàn hồi phục, và trong nhóm còn có một phụ nữ đang mang thai. Ông cho biết lúc đó cả nhóm gần như tuyệt vọng, nghĩ đây là ngày cuối cùng của mình trên đất.

Đột nhiên, một con sư tử lừ lừ xuất hiện, lao đến tấn công một trong số binh sĩ. Khi các binh sĩ khác đang tìm cách tấn công lại con vật, bỗng nhiên lại xuất hiện thêm 2 con sư tử nữa. Quá kinh hoàng, các binh sĩ vội vã chạy trốn mất. Ba con sư tử cũng lẳng lặng bỏ đi, không hề động đến mục sư và nhóm tín đồ.

"Điều đáng kinh ngạc diệu kỳ là từ trước đến nay chưa ai từng thấy sư tử vãng lai trong khu rừng đó" – mục sư Paul kể.
