December 20, 2015 ~~~~~~~~~~~4th Sunday of Advent:
Jesus was born during the night of the year when darkness
is the longest. The Savior of the world comes for the people
in dark places. The real, lasting, and deep joy is that the
Light shines there. That is why we can say to each other,
“Merry Christmas!”
This month, through your gifts, the Society of St. Vincent
de Paul was able to bring the light of Jesus into the dark
places of the poor, by assisting families, providing in food,
in gifts, and for utility and rent bills. Thanks for helping
those who are poor to be able to say “Merry Christmas!”
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Jesús nació durante la noche del año cuando la oscuridad es
la más larga. El Salvador del mundo viene por la gente que
está en lugares oscuros. La alegría verdadera, duradera, y
profunda es que la Luz brille allí. Es por ello que podemos
decirnos unos a otros, “¡Feliz Navidad!”
En este mes, gracias a sus donaciones, la Sociedad de San
Vicente de Paul fue capaz de llevar la luz de Jesús a estos
lugares oscuros de los pobres, ayudando a las familias,
ofreciéndoles despensas de alimentos, en regalos, y ayudándoles a pagar sus facturas de servicios públicos y alquiler.
Gracias por ayudar los necesitados de nuestra comunidad y
poder decirles “¡Feliz Navidad!”

A Note from Fr. Manny
Dear St. Francis Family,
The pace of things is getting faster as we
approach Christmas. Let us learn from the Gospel this weekend about Mary who celebrated the
very First Christmas with Jesus and Joseph.
Mary with Jesus in her womb, could not
just stay at home as most pregnant women will
probably do especially during cold winter. The
presence of Jesus in Mary's womb, inspired and motivated her
to get out of Nazareth to attend and serve Elizabeth in the city
of Judah, (Lk. 1:39), and stayed three months.
Every now and then, we receive Jesus in the sacrament of
the Holy Eucharist. Once we receive Jesus, He becomes part
of our being. Like Mary who shared Jesus to her cousin Elizabeth, we being Christians, are called to get out of our Nazareth,
(comfort zone), to live and share Christ to others as Mary did
to Elizabeth.
As we journey into this Jubilee Year of Mercy, let us allow God’s amazing love and mercy to those who are longing
for it. Like Mary did to Elizabeth, her relative, let us try to live
out God’s love and mercy first within the very members of our
family so that our Christmas celebrations become more meaningful because the spirit of “Emmanuel” (God is with us) is
truly present in each and every family.
Have a Wonderful and Meaningful Christmas to all!
Fr. Manny

Querida familia de San Francisco:
El ritmo de las cosas es cada vez más rápido a medida que
nos acercamos a la Navidad. Aprendamos del Evangelio de
este fin de semana acerca de María que celebró la primerísima
Navidad con Jesús y José.
María con Jesús en su vientre, no podía darse el lujo de
quedarse en casa como la mayoría de las mujeres embarazadas
probablemente harán especialmente durante el frio invierno.
La presencia de Jesús en el vientre de María, la inspiró y la
motivó a salir de Nazaret para ir a asistir y servir a Isabel en la
ciudad de Judá, (Lc 1:39), y se quedó por tres meses.
De vez en cuando, recibimos a Jesús en el sacramento de
la Santa Eucaristía. Una vez que recibimos a Jesús, Él se convierte en parte de nuestro ser. Así como María que compartió
a Jesús con su prima Isabel, nosotros siendo cristianos, estamos
llamados a salir de nuestra Nazaret, (zona de confort), para
vivir y compartir a Cristo a los demás como María lo hizo con
Isabel.
Al comenzar nuestro caminar en este Año Jubilar de la
Misericordia, compartamos con aquellos que anhelan el amor y
la misericordia increíble de Dios. Como lo hizo María con su
pariente Isabel, tratemos de vivir el amor y la misericordia de
Dios en primer lugar dentro de los propios miembros de nuestra familia para que nuestras celebraciones de Navidad se hagan más significativas porque el espíritu de "Emmanuel" (Dios
con nosotros) está verdaderamente presente en todos y en cada
familia.
¡Que tengan todos una Maravillosa y Significativa Navidad!
Padre Manny
