▲▲▲ BREAK OPEN THE WORD My 3-year-old niece was standing at the door the other day wanting to go outside and it was so hot no one else wanted to go out. She finally said, “I just want to go smell the flowers again.” That stirred up something within me—how often do I “smell the flowers”? All too often we are so busy and driven in our daily lives that we scurry past the beauty of God’s creation. This summer take time to slow down and enjoy! Pause a moment and look for God in the midst of creation, in the midst of your day-to-day activity and most importantly in the midst of your heart! Regardless of what you have going on today —go out and smell the flowers! June 17 Reflection: In today’s Gospel we hear two parables. The first is about a farmer who scatters seeds, then sleeps and rises. The second parable is about the mustard seed—the smallest seed that produces the largest plant. Which of these parables do you connect with? Are you the farmer who plants seeds and watches them grow knowing that you have no control over their fruitfulness? Have you considered even the tiniest of seeds that have been planted in your heart and what may be growing as a result? Seeds are a great metaphor for our faith life. The seed holds within it life that we cannot see or even comprehend until we plant it and allow it to grow. Something to ponder: “Sometimes when you are in a dark place you think you’ve been buried, but actually you’ve been planted.” (Christine Caine) June 24 Reflection: As we look at today’s Gospel consider what do we know about what has already happened? Mary has been with Elizabeth for 3 months. Together these women shared in the knowledge of who Jesus is. While these women have been talking and singing praises, Zachariah has been mute, unable to speak, for the duration of Elizabeth’s pregnancy. In today’s Gospel Zachariah speaks for the first time, calling his son ‘John’ and singing the praises of God. Silence has a way of opening our hearts to things that we would often dismiss with words, explanations, or questioning attitudes. This week give yourself the gift of silence. Shut off your phone and find a place where you can enter into silence and be able to stay there for a little while. Try for an hour, but start where you are and go as long as you can. When it gets hard, you may want to consider what is making it hard… are you distracted? Are you trying to avoid what is stirring up in your heart or your mind? What surfaces as you sit in silence? Where do you sense God in the silence? Sometimes we need something to focus on as we sit in silence, I often use scripture or a quote from a book. My favorite verse is “Be still and know that I am God” from Psalm 46. Focus on each word, focus on them together and individually. Be open to where the Spirit may lead you in this time of prayerful silence! —Patty Mayer, Adult Faith Formation Director Like Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart on Facebook

▲▲▲ NEWS TO KNOW TREE REMOVAL As many of you have noticed, the trees along the north edge of the parking lot were removed this past week. This was necessary, as the trees were too big to replant. Although we do not have records of who donated for those trees, we do know that many were donated in honor of loved ones. Please know that as we replant, we will continue to honor the memory of your loved ones with the new trees planted.
UNDER CONSTRUCTION We thank the Knights who volunteered to be our parking lot attendants. If you would be willing to help out this summer, there is a sign up sheet on the kiosk. For our attendees, thank you for treating each other with patience ‘in thought, word and deed’ on entering and exiting. Keep it up! Since our parking lot construction will be dependent on the weather, we cannot always predict where we’ll be in the process. We have been promised there will always be a driveway open and some spots available and a door through which to enter!
THE CATHOLIC MIRROR Our diocesan newspaper’s subscription drive kicks off this month. Please consider taking a subscription to The Catholic Mirror. It’s the only publication that features Catholic news and inspiring stories from around our diocese along with reflections and teachings from our bishop.

The Agape Garden is in desperate need of help with weeding. With the late spring and a diminished volunteer attendance this year, the planting is incomplete and large parts of the area are being lost to weeds. If folks could come for even as short of a time as 30 minutes and make a dent, it would help. Work times are Tuesday and Thursday evenings starting around 5:00 pm and Saturday morning, starting around 8:00 am. The garden is located at 7384 NW 16th St, Ankeny.
