Dear Families and Friends of Immaculate Heart of Mary,


Who would think that from the tiniest of seeds, the mustard seed, could grow such a large plant, so large even that birds are able to live in its shade? Likewise, the wheat seeds seem to grow effortlessly. Yet, all the while, the plants, embedded in healthy soil, gather nutrients, water, and sunlight so that they produce abundantly and are ready at harvest time. These parables stress the power of the seeds to grow so that they produce ripe grain and flowering plants. Once again, Jesus speaks to us, his followers, in parables, using ordinary images, so that we can understand his important message. Jesus starts the reign of God by planting the Word. The Word sprouts and develops and matures slowly and surely so that it is ready for the harvest which will come at the Last Judgment.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Parish Family Festival. Special thanks to those who helped organize, plan, and carry out the many events of the day. It was a special day for celebrating our IHM Family. Please be sure to take home a copy of the bulletin each week so that you will know about the many events and activities that are taking place here in the parish.

IHM, Pray for us,

Your Pastor,
Fr. Quang

Queridas Familias y Amigos del Imaculado Corazon de Maria,


¿Quién pensaría que desde la más pequeña de las semillas, la semilla de mostaza, podría crecer una planta tan grande, tan grande que incluso las aves son capaces de vivir en su sombra? Asimismo, las semillas de trigo parecen crecer sin mucho esfuerzo. Sin embargo, todo el tiempo, las plantas incrustadas en un suelo sano, recolectan nutrientes, agua y luz solar para que produzcan abundantemente y estén listas en el momento de la cosecha. Estas parábolas enfatizan el poder de las semillas para crecer de manera que produzcan granos maduros y plantas florecientes. Una vez más, Jesús nos habla a nosotros, a sus seguidores, en parábolas, usando imágenes ordinarias, para que podamos entender su mensaje importante. Jesús comienza el Reino de Dios plantando la palabra. La Palabra brota y se desarrolla y madura lentamente para poder estar lista para la cosecha que vendrá en el juicio final.

Gracias a todos los que participaron en nuestro Festival de la familia en la parroquia. Agradecimientos especiales para aquellos que ayudaron a organizar, planificar y llevar a cabo los muchos eventos del día. Fue un día especial para celebrar nuestra familia de ICM. Por favor, asegúrense de llevar a casa una
copia del boletín cada semana para que ustedes conozcan los muchos eventos y actividades que están teniendo lugar aquí en la parroquia.


Su Párroco,
Padre Quang
