building community
a way of life
Sunday, May 3, 2015
In today’s Gospel reading, Jesus reminds us how
important each and every one of us is when He says, “I am
the vine; you are the branches.” One of the central ideas in
the spirituality of stewardship is how crucial each person
is to the success and effectiveness of the community. Of
course, together we can do so much more than each of
us can individually.
Are you using your gifts? Are you using your gifts to
build the community and to serve others? Jesus speaks of
His Father “pruning” the branches that do not bear fruit.
As is often the case in ancient Greek, a word can have
two meanings. The word for “prune” is also the word
for “cleanse.” That is the point the Lord is most likely
making. Until we are “cleansed,” until we have sought
conversion and change with the help of God, we are not
able to fully fulfill our covenants with God.
Stewardship, of course, is a call to each of us to
respond to our many gifts with thanksgiving and service.
Fruits bear seeds within them. Our response to God’s call
is to allow our seeds to produce more fruit. The author
Robert Louis Stevenson said, “Don’t judge each day by
the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.” As our
Easter season continues, we need to make sure we are
attached to the vine of the Lord, and that we are planting

prayer requests
The Islamic group (ISIS) just took over Quaragosh, the biggest
Christian city in Iraq. There are hundreds of men, women and
children that are being beheaded.
The people are asking for prayers to be made on their behalf
concerning the ongoing atrocity in their country. Please take
one minute to pray for them.
They asked for this special prayer. Please, ensure you pass
across the prayer request to the body of Christ for fervent
prayers offered on behalf of the brothers, sisters and children
in Iraq. This is an urgent SOS.
May God bless you.
From Andrew White the Vicar of Baghdad.

Dear Catholic Community at Stanford.
As you have heard me say before, the Catholic Community
at Stanford is a wonderful, faith filled community. It is a
great honor to be part of a community so diverse in its gifts
and so intentional in its discipleship. I share with you that
I am being reassigned to be the Director of the Newman
Center at University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
But before we separate and say goodbye it is important
to appreciate the time we have together. My new
assignment begins July 1 so I will be here to the end of
June in which my last Mass will be the 4:30 p.m. on June
28. Please pray for me during this time of transition,
for it is never easy to become part of peoples lives and
then to move. Please pray for my success there for I am
challenged to raise a million dollars to build a church with
stained glass and all. Of course it will not be as grand as
the Memorial Church. Yet I have hopes.
So who is coming? and What is he like? These may be
some of the questions arising as you read this. His name
is Fr. Emanuel Taylor. He is currently an associate at St.
Dominic’s in San Francisco. I mention this as I know
many will begin to Google him and Facebook him and
do the Cyber Searches to know who he is. I will say that
I know him as a sincere and caring priest and I am glad
for you to receive him well. Pray for him in this time of
transition as well and know that you are in my prayers. I
end this message with a heart felt Thank You. You have
been very good for me, God Bless you always.
Fr. Daniel Rolland, O.P.

Dominican Life in the 21st
Solemn High Mass According to the
Dominican Rite and Reflections on
Dominican Life Today.
In honor of the Year for Consecrated
Life, the Dominican nuns of Corpus
Christi Monastery, the friars of
the Western Dominican Province,
and the Corpus Christi chapter of
Dominican Laity joyfully invite
you to Dominican Life in the 21st
Century, at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday,
May 16, 2015, at Corpus Christi
Monastery, 215 Oak Grove Avenue,
Menlo Park, California.
The morning will begin with a
Solemn High Mass according to
the Dominican Rite; the celebrant
will be Fr. Ambrose Sigman, O.P.
Following Mass, the Dominican
friars, nuns, and laity will present
three short talks on Dominican life.
A light reception will follow.
Founded by St. Dominic 800 years
ago, the Order of Friars Preachers
was commissioned to contemplate
God and share with others the fruit
of that contemplation, preaching the
Gospel for the salvation of souls.
Today, the sons and daughters of St.
Dominic continue to embrace and
live out that charism as religious
friars and nuns, sisters and laity.
3. For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ,
with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father. Amen.
First Reading Acts of the Apostles 9:26-31
Saul went back to Jerusalem, but the disciples were afraid of him. Barnabas told
them how the Lord had conversed with Saul and how he had suffered in the name of
Jesus. Then they welcomed and protected Saul.

Gospel Acclamation
Gospel Easter Alleluia John 15:1-8
Jesus said, “I am the vine and you are the branches. Those who live in me and I
in them will bear fruit abundantly.”
Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven
and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin
Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died
and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day
he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and
is seated at the right hand of God, the Father almighty;
from there he will come to judge
the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the
resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
