              Dear Sisters and Brothers,
                      Putting ourselves in another person’s shoes is at the heart of morality. Compassion toward others
              is impossible as long as we keep ourselves at the center of everything. Everything looks different when we
              see the world through the eyes of others – especially when we look through the eyes of Christ.
                    Jesus saw the world with the eyes of a shepherd. Jeremiah 23:1-6 describes that shepherd as one
who risks and gives his own life to save the sheep. Our responsibility as Christians is to care for those around us who
are in need whatever it costs us.
         We hear in our Gospel from Mark 6:30-34, that even when Jesus was tired, he could not turn his back on the
crowds of people that followed him wherever he went. His own physical and spiritual needs always took second place
to the needs of others. He met every demand that was made on his love and help.
       There are basically two ways of looking at the people around us. We can either see them as companions or as
competitors. If we see them as competitors, they stand in the way of our own happiness. If we see them as
companions, our happiness is always wrapped up in their happiness.
Fr. Ray

                                                       Living Stewardship Now
                              Look at your life and try to add up how you spend your week. How much time is
                              devoted to God, family, work, and service? Do you rest and relax or just change
                              activities? What are your time-wasters?

We hear stories all the time about people in a parish saying, “let others do the work of the
Church (parish). I’ve been giving for so long. Now, it is time for others to step up.”
In today’s Gospel, Jesus had planned to slip away from the crowds for a few moments of peace and a
little rest. When He saw the people gathered, however, He put His needs aside to meet the needs of
others. Sometimes, as good stewards, we are called to do the same, no matter how long we’ve been
involved and how much of our treasure we have given.

                                ALTAR SERVER OF THE MONTH
                                            AUSTIN BLOCK
                  1. What do you like best about being an altar server? - I like helping to serve the church
                  and being a part of mass. I feel that it helps bring me spiritually closer to God.
                   2. What other activities have you done at St. Joan of Arc.? - I have been a V.B.S.
   counselor for four years now. I was part of the LIGHT youth ministry group last year and will be again
   this year.
    3. How has serving at liturgies changed the way you view the Mass, the sacraments, etc.? - Serving
   has taught me new things about mass. I have learned that to consecrate the bread and wine to make them
   the body and blood of Jesus Christ that it is not just the blessing that consecrates it. It is the story the
   priest tells along with it about the last supper. Without the story it can not be transformed into the body
   and blood of Jesus Christ.
    4. What are your outside interests, (i.e. favorite class, sports, musical instrument, etc.)? - Outside of
   altar serving I am a Boy Scout. I've been a Boy Scout for five years. I also run cross country and track for
   Cal High. Practice has already started for Cross Country in the fall of this year.
    5. What is your favorite memory as an altar server? - My favorite memory of being an altar server
   was serving at the Easter Vigil for the first time. It was a great experience and that is why I try to do it
   every year.
    6. How long have you been an altar server? - I have been an altar server since third grade and I'm
   going to be a Sophomore so that's... 7 years.

        Hike and Mass with Fr. Ian and Fr. Ray
            Saturday July 28, 2012 9AM Juniper Campground Mt. Diablo

 To those who wish to carpool, meet at St Joan of Arc lower parking lot by the
 MPR and be ready to leave at 8:15 AM sharp. We will car pool to Mt Diablo
 south entrance and up to the Juniper campgrounds, which is just below the
 summit. Non-carpool can go straight to the picnic area at Juniper Trail. We will
 begin with a mass at 9AM at the Juniper Campground picnic area.

 After mass, Fr. Ian and Fr. Ray will lead a hike from the Juniper campground to
 the summit via the Juniper trail. This is an easy two-mile round trip hike to the
 summit. We will have shuttles available to people up the summit to do the
 around the top hike/walk which has great views and informational plaques
 along the way.

 Those that do not wish to participate in the hike can remain at the site and enjoy
 the views until the hiking party returns. Upon returning to the campground, there
 will be a no host picnic.

 Those attending should bring their own lunch, water and a light folding chair.
 Mt Diablo charges a day use fee of $10 per vehicle. Maps with driving directions will be handed out at the entrance.
