12/4/22 - John the Baptist - Cycle A

Dear Families,

 

This is the second week of Advent, and in this week’s Gospel; John the Baptist encourages people to turn to God with their whole hearts.  He baptizes many people who desire a better relationship with God.  John shares that God is sending a holy and mighty person who will baptize with the Holy Spirit and fire.

 

We can turn to God with our whole hearts by repenting and turning away from sin.  During this Advent season, reflect on poor choices you have made and ask for God’s forgiveness.  This is how we can prepare our minds and hearts and welcome Jesus at Christmas.

 

As a family watch video in its entirety and then ask each other this question.
What can you do this week to strengthen your relationship with God?

 

Family Prayer:  Thank you, Jesus for welcoming us into your family.  Help us to make choices that bring us closer to you.  Amen.

December 4, 2022- Second Sunday of Advent

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

   In Advent we are preparing for Christmas. Christ' birth is a historical event and we celebrate it yearly, giving ourselves time to be enriched and transformed by his coming, and ultimately to be saved by his: life, suffering, death and resurrection. Do we allow Christ to save us? That depends on each one of us individually, since friendship and love of God, is a relationship built on freedom to give ourselves to the one who loved us first.

   Someone made a great point in describing three types of people in the world and their approach to life and faith; they are the: "tourists, residents and pilgrims". What kind of life and faith consumers are we?

12/4/22 - Segundo Domingo de Adviento                        

 Queridas Hermanas y Hermanos,

   En Advientos nos estamos preparando para la Navidad, el nacimiento de Cristo es un acontecimiento histórico y lo celebramos anualmente, dándonos tiempo para ser enriquecidos y transformados por esta venida, y finalmente ser salvados por su: vida, sufrimiento, muerte y resurrección. Permitir que Cristo no salve, depende de cada uno de nosotros individualmente, ya que la amistad y el amor de Dios, es una relación construida sobre la libertad de darnos a quien nos amó primero.

   Alguien hizo un gran comentario al describir tres tipos de personas en el mundo en su enfoque de la vida y la fe; son los: “turistas, residentes y peregrinos”

¿Qué tipo de consumidores de vida y fe somos?

The Office for the Protection of Children and Young People:

The Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People (The Charter) promulgated by the Bishops of the United States in 2002 outlines specific practices and guidelines providing standards of safety in parishes and dioceses throughout the United States. As directed in The Charter, the Diocese of Rockville Centre requires all employees, clergy, and volunteers to complete three requirements within thirty days of employment or volunteering:

  1. Attend Protecting God’s Children Program (Virtus)
  2. Sign the Codes of Conduct;
  3. Complete a background screen application. The Diocese requires all those who remain in active ministry be rescreened at 5 yr. intervals. volunteers/employees.

 

The 'Equality Act' discriminates against people of faith and threatens unborn life.

Tell Congress you oppose it!
 
Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. The so-called Equality Act, which is being voted on in the U.S. House of Representatives soon, in many ways does the opposite and needs to be opposed. Instead of respecting differences in beliefs about marriage and sexuality, the Equality Act would discriminate against people of faith. 
 
The Equality Act would: punish faith-based organizations, such as charities and schools who serve everyone in their communities, simply because of their beliefs; force girls and women to compete against boys and men for limited opportunities in sports, and to share locker rooms and shower spaces with biological males who identify as women; risk mandating taxpayers to fund abortions; force people in everyday life, and especially health care workers, to support gender transition; and expand what the government considers a “public” place, forcing even some parish halls to host functions that conflict with Catholic beliefs.
