Dear Parish Family,
Peace and all good! This weekend marks the Third Sunday in Lent. How are you doing with your Lenten resolutions at this point? How are we doing as a parish family in terms of embracing the disciplines of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving which are intended to make us more aware of our dependence upon God and of our need for conversion? If youre stuck at this point or feel that your best Lenten intentions have somehow gotten derailed, take heart. You can push the restart button at any time and get going again. Its not about perfection; the journey is bound to be a bit wobbly for most of us. The important thing is to keep going. Just put one step in front of the other. The whole concept of stepstaking steps, for example permeates the Lenten experience. In todays Gospel reading from John (2:13-25), Jesus takes some rather drastic steps to confront the Temple authorities in Jerusalem with their hypocrisy and corruption. When challenged by the money changers and stall owners whom He has expelled from the Temple precincts, Jesus asserts His identity, His purpose, and His authority. Jesus took steps to call attention to the real purpose and meaning of the Temple as the House of God. We are called to take steps in our Lenten observance to rediscover and reclaim the purpose and meaning of our lives as followers of Jesus. One of the most important steps we can takeboth individually and collectivelyis to reflect upon our lives, our decisions, our habits of heart and mind, our attitudes and beliefs. Weall of us are challenged to make a frank assessment of the ways in which our missteps have caused us to turn away from God, from others, and from ourselves. Our Catholic Christian tradition is at heart a sacramental onewe believe most profoundly in the importance and efficacy of the sacred moments given to us by Jesus which reassure us of the power of His Presence and Love. Moreover, we are invited in an especially poignant way during this Lenten season to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation in preparation for Easter. Now, lets be really frank. Reconciliation is the one sacrament many Catholics absolutely dread. You did what?! How many times?! The stern admonishments of some harsh and insensitive confessors experienced in childhood or at a particularly vulnerable moment in life have needlessly driven people away from the celebration of what should be and is a most beautiful moment in which we experience the deep compassion and restorative Love of the Presence of Jesus. Always remember, my professor in confessional counseling urged, people have sinned against God, not against you, the confessor! So, be gentle with people. As one of the many blessings of the Second Vatican Council, I believe that in todays Church, we now have a deeper, healthier, and more compassionate understanding of sacramental Reconciliation. Its not a matter of the scrupulous

rendering of a laundry list of misdemeanors (with, perhaps, the occasional, mumbled felony sandwiched in). Rather, we now stress and celebrate our confidence in and gratitude towards a loving and gracious God who is always ready to welcome us home. This is not to minimize the reality and seriousness of sin, but rather to remind us of the infinite mercy (loving kindness) of our God. This year, think about taking advantage of celebrating the Sacrament of Reconciliationeither at one of our communal Penance services this coming week (March 15, 7pm and March 17, 10am) or at any one of the services offered at any one of the 12 parishes that form our local deanery (check page #4 for details.) These community-wide celebrations remind us that all of us stand in need of Gods healing grace and that our attitudes and actions affect other people. Lets take this important step in our spiritual growth and journey together. God bless, Fr. Chuck


Saint Patrick: A Missionary for our Time
The conversion of Ireland to the Christian faith, attributed in the main to St. Patrick, was achieved without the spilling of blood. People are often surprised by this. Patrick and his fellow missionaries seemed to have had an appreciation for the culture they encountered in Ireland which was pagan and deeply spiritual. The Druid culture had a huge love for creation, for relationships of family and friendship and it considered nature sacred. Patrick took the gospel and presented it to the Celtic people as a confirmation of what they already believed but with the addition of the Blessed Trinity, Christ as Savior and the Church as the body of Christ. Pagan holy wells, for example, where people went to drink for cures were blessed and called after saints so that people continued the practice of visiting them but with a new faith based on Christ and honoring his Blessed Mother. Mountains, sacred to the Celtic people because they were thought to be shrouded in mystery and occupied by the gods, became places of pilgrimage where people ascended to encounter the living God. Holy Islands served as places of penance where people, once superstitious, came to value fasting and prayer in solitude as atonement for sin and a cleansing of the spirit. St. Patrick Christianized pagan practices and beliefs by adding what had been missing - the One God, Creator of all. Patrick converted the Celtic people of Ireland by respecting the spiritual practices and beliefs he found upon his arrival and offering them the missing link, Christ and the Good News. Though he lived well over a thousand years ago, St. Patrick is most definitely a saint for our time. His ministry was defined by a respect for difference, cultural diversity and gentle courage. We would do well to listen to him again as we present the Good News in our diverse community today. We will celebrate St. Patrick on Saturday March 17 with Mass at 5:00 p.m. followed by Pot Luck in the Parish Dining Room. Please bring something to share if you are joining us an appetizer, entre or dessert. Simply drop off your dish or platter before Mass at the Dining Room and pick it up later before you leave. Diane and Jim Manning would love to hear from you if you would like to help with set-up and/or cleanup. You may reach them at760-724-3319. Cad mle filte! A hundred thousand welcomes!

By the Holy Spirit was incarnate...The simple change from born to incarnate is one of the most important improvements in the new translation of the Creed, because it more accurately conveys the truth of the Incarnation the moment when the Son of God took flesh. This wording more accurately reflects the Latin text of the Mass which includes the word incarnates (incarnate). There was concern that the previous wording/translation could be interpreted to mean that Christ did not actually become man until the moment he was born. The reality is that the Son of God took on human nature from the moment of his conception. The Blessed Virgin Marys yes to the Archangel Gabriel at the Annunciation is the moment when the Son first came down from heaven to dwell among us. In using the term, incarnate the new translation removes all ambiguity in our professing our faith in the Creed. The significance of this line is liturgically emphasized by the fact that we bow while saying it, as an expression of reverence to the mystery of the Incarnation. Suffered deaththis replaces two verbs in the previous translation, suffered died. The Latin is somewhat ambiguous; literally it is he suffered and was buried, and the word suffered implies his dying. Because the verb died is not in the Latin text suffered death is seen as a better way to express what happened to Jesus. The point is that he really died, and that is what gives his Resurrection its full meaning. Describing the Resurrection as being in accordance with the Scriptures speaks inclusively of the New Testament in addition to fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. The next and last part of the Nicene Creed Adored

STEP BACK This Lenten Season We live such hectic, busy lives; there is often so little time to notice what is happening to us. Gathering together regularly with a few fellow parishioners in a Small Christian Community offers people a chance to slow down, to be a bit more reflective about life, to sift and sort the things that count. Over time the Small Christian Community becomes a place where members ask: How might God be acting in this crazy mixed-up life Im living, even if I dont pay much attention to Gods presence on a day to day basis? The Mission San Luis Rey Core Team invites you to consider joining an SCC. All cultures are welcomed to join or start a group (8 to 12 people). Find out more from Eileen Costa (SCC Coordinator), at (760) 231-9930; or Bartolo Mendez at (760) 945-3701; or Tavale Tavale at (760) 295-4088. Be a part of bringing the presence of Christs love to your Family and Mission San Luis Reys Parish Family.

Del Escritorio del Prroco

Querida Familia Parroquial,
Paz y todo bien! Este fin de semana marca el Domingo Tercero de Cuaresma. Cmo ests llevando hasta hoy tus resoluciones de Cuaresma? Cmo estamos haciendo, siendo una familia parroquial, en trminos de practicar las disciplinas de oracin, de ayuno y de generosidad en dar limosnas que nos permiten hacernos conscientes de nuestra dependencia en Dios y de nuestra necesidad de conversin? Si ests detenido a este punto o notas que tus intenciones de Cuaresma estn fuera de orden, considralo. Tu puedes oprimir el botn de iniciar de nuevo en cualquier momento y comenzar. No se trata de perfeccin; la jornada est supuesta a ser difcil para la mayora de nosotros. Lo importante es mantenerse llevndola a cabo. Solo da un paso frente al otro. El concepto total de los pasosdar pasos, por ejemplo, hace penetrar la experiencia de Cuaresma. En la lectura de hoy del Evangelio de Juan (2:13-25), Jess toma algunos pasos algo drsticos para confrontar las autoridades del templo de Jerusaln debido a sus hipocresas y a su corrupcin. Al ser retado por los dueos y contadores del dinero, los cuales Jess haba sacado de los precintos del Templo, Jess muestra Su identidad, Su propsito y Su autoridad. Jess tom los pasos para llamar la atencin hacia el propsito real y al significado del templo como la Casa de Dios. Nosotros estamos llamados a tomar los pasos en nuestro observancia para redescubrir y reclamar el propsito y el significado de nuestras vidas como seguidores de Jess. Uno de los pasos ms importantes que nosotros podemos tomar, ambos individualmente y colectivamente, es reflejar en nuestras vidasnuestras decisiones, nuestros hbitos del corazn y de nuestra mente, nuestras actividades y creencias. Nosotrostodos nosotrosestamos retados a hacer una evaluacin franca de las formas que nuestros pasos errneos nos han causado a alejarnos de Dios, de los dems y de nosotros mismos. Nuestra tradicin Cristiana Catlica es una sacramental de coraznnosotros creemos muy profundamente en la importancia y en la eficacia en los momentos sagrados

dados a nosotros por Jess que nos aseguran sobre el poder de Su Presencia y de Su Amor. Ms an, nosotros somos invitados en una forma especialmente conmovedora y emocional durante esta Cuaresma, a celebrar el Sacramento de Reconciliacin en preparacin para la Pascua de Resurreccin. Ahora, seamos verdaderamente francos. La Reconciliacin es un sacramento que muchos Catlicos temen absolutamente. Que t haces qu? Cuntas veces? Los regaos severos e insensatos de algunos confesores que se han experimentado en la niez o en un momento vulnerable de sus vidas han alejado innecesariamente a la gente de la celebracin de lo que debe ser y que es el momento ms hermoso en el que nosotros experimentamos la compasin profunda y salvadora del Amor y de la Presencia de Jess. Siempre recuerda ordenaba mi profesor en consejera confesional, la gente ha pecado contra Dios, no contra ti, el que confiesa! As que s gentil con la gente. Como una de las muchas bendiciones del Concilio Vaticano Segundo, yo creo que en la Iglesia de hoy nosotros tenemos un conocimiento ms profundo, ms saludable y de ms compasin del Sacramento de Reconciliacin. No se trata de una entrega escrupulosa de una lista de faltas (con algunas faltas ocasionales, includas como rellenando un emparedado.) Por el contrario, nosotros enfatizamos y celebramos nuestra confianza en nuestro agradecimiento hacia un Dios amorosos que siempre est dispuesto a darnos la bienvenida en Su Hogar. Esto no es para hacer mnima la gravedad y la seriedad del pecado sino para recordarnos la misericordia infinita (bondad amorosa) de nuestro Dios. Este ao, piensa sobre tomar la ventaja de celebrar el Sacramento de Reconciliacinya sea en (el 15 de marzo a las 7pm o el 17 de marzo a las 10am) o cualquiera de los servicios que se ofrecen en las 12 parroquias que sirven localmente. (Puedes ver el boletn o llamar a al oficina parroquial para detalles al efecto.) Estas celebraciones comunales extensas nos recuerdan que todos nosotros estamos necesitados de la ayuda de la gracia de Dios y que nuestras actitudes y acciones afectan a otras personas. Tomemos unidos estos pasos tan importantes en nuestro crecimiento espiritual y en nuestra jornada.
Dios los bendiga Padre Chuck

8 | PARROQUIA MISION SAN LUIS REY, Oceanside, California 11 de marzo del 2012

Misal Romano El Credo de Nicea Parte II
La traduccin nueva recupera el ttulo antiguo de Cristo, (Hijo Unignito) que est tambin en el Gloria. El decir nacido del Padre antes de todo los siglos es una verdad teolgica profunda, porque el Hijo no ha nacido en el sentido hermano desde el comienzo de una vida, sino que procede eternamente del Padre, siendo siempre totalmente Dios. Otro cambio muy notable en el lenguaje del Credo de Nicea es el uso de la palabra consubstancial en lugar de la frase siendo en cambio uno. La palabra consubstantiales del latn es difcil de traducir porque es tan nica. Ella describe una realidad nica: la relacin entre el Padre y el Hijo Consubstancial no es una palabra la cual usamos en conversacin normal. Sin embargo, los Padres en el Concilio de Nicea trabajaron arduamente y por un largo tiempo sobre esta palabra en el ao 325, por lo que, lo ms cerca al vernacular es al original, lo ms fiel el estar a una creencia Cristiana clara. El trmino uno en el ser fue adaptado por la Iglesia Anglicana en la traduccin del Credo por Thomas Cranmer en el tiempo en que la Iglesia de Inglaterra de separar de la Iglesia Catlica Romana. Siguiendo el Concilio Vaticano Segundo como parte de los esfuerzos ecumnicos colaborativos de estar de acuerdo con algunos textos a ser usados en sus celebraciones litrgicas, esta traduccin uno en el ser fue aceptada por algunas iglesias Cristianas, incluyendo, la nuestra, para ser usada en el Credo de Nicea. Sin embargo, al examinar la exactitud de esta traduccin nueva se decidi que el Misal Romano debera adoptar la traduccin directa de consubstancial con el Padre, e.i. consubstancial con el Padre. La razn para sto es que desde el punto de vista de teologa, uno en el ser no refleja claramente el significado completo de consubstancial i.e., que Cristo es una naturaleza, no simplemente uno con el Padre. El no es una substancia minoritaria: El ha existido siempre. San Atanasio lo inclua todo: hubo un tiempo donde El no estaba. Una ventaja de la palabra consubstancial es que nos recuerda que hay algo sobre la vida interior de Dios la cual est ms all de nuestra terminologa normal. Bill Bischoff, Director de Catequesis

Primera lectura El sacrificio de nuestro patriarca Abraham (Gnesis 22: 1-2, 9-13, 15-18). Salmo Siempre confiar en el Seor (Salmo 116 [115]). Segunda lectura Dios nos entreg a su propio Hijo (Romanos 8: 31-34). Evangelio Este es mi Hijo amado (Marcos 9: 2-10).

Everyone is welcome! Join us in taking the chance to thank this remarkable man for his tremendous dedication and generosity in the more than five years he has served our parish family. There is not a single group in our parish family which has not been helped in some way by Allen.

Allen is a true gentleman and everyone who has ever worked with him has found him to be respectful, competent, calm, concerned, and affable. We will all really miss Allen, but we wish him and his wife, Marlene, many, many years of enjoyable retirement in the company of family and friends. God bless you, Allen, and Vaya con Dios! --Fr.

Allen es en verdadero un caballero y todos los que han trabajado con l han descubierto que es respetuoso, competente, sereno, atento y gentil. Todos nosotros vamos a extraar verdaderamente a Allen, pero le deseamos a l y a su esposa, Marlene, muchos, muchos aos agradables de jbilo en la compaa de familiares y amigos.
