POPE FRANCIS Quote of the Week:
If you need information on the Ministry, please
call Madgy Chalmers at 626 915-7290 or send
an e-mail me to [email protected]
The Spouse of Christ [the Church] must
pattern her behavior after the Son of God
who went out to everyone without
exception. In the present day, as the
Church is charged with the task of the
new evangelization, the theme of mercy
needs to be proposed again and again
with new enthusiasm and renewed
pastoral action. (S12)

submitted no later than noon on Tuesday.

faith---in a manner that today’s teens will
understand & enjoy.

Readings for the Week...
TODAY’S READINGS
First Reading — Brought before the Sanhedrin, the
apostles give witness to Jesus Christ.
(Acts 5:27-32, 40b-41).
Psalm — I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued
me (Psalm 30).
Second Reading — In his vision John sees all in heaven
and on earth give honor and glory to the one on the throne
and to the Lamb (Revelation 5:11-14).
Gospel — Jesus appears to the disciples by the sea of
Tiberias (John 21:1-19 [1-14]).

REDEMPTION
Do you remember Peter on the night Jesus was arrested? He claimed he had never heard of Jesus. Today we
are called to join Peter in testifying to the name of Jesus
as he does in the first reading, and in proclaiming our
love for him as Peter does in the Gospel passage. The
powerful imagery of John’s vision in the second reading
from the book of Revelation shows us the company we
keep when we have faith in the name of Jesus. We join all
living creatures, “countless in number” from “heaven,
earth, under the earth, in the sea; everything in the universe” (Revelation 5:11, 13). The dignity and majesty
described in each reading are in stark contrast to the dark
and pitiful image of Peter and the other apostles at the
time of Jesus’ arrest, trial, and crucifixion. What a relief
that we can all be redeemed so completely!

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
From the earliest centuries, we know that some
Christian women desired to vow themselves to a celibate
life to pray and serve. Some, but by no means everyone,
wanted a kind of monastic life. Others wanted to stay in
the family home. By the fourth century, the church was
celebrating the “Consecration of Virgins,” a rite
performed by the bishop, and involving a “veiling” of the
woman. It was looked upon as a form of marriage with
Christ, partly because in the culture of the day a woman’s
status in society was linked to a man. The prayers and
ritual for the consecration of virgins were exactly the
same as the prayers and ritual for the consecration of a
bride on her wedding day. The public character of the rite
gave the bishop the opportunity to commend the virgin to
the faithful, and to threaten with punishment anyone who
tried to turn her from her commitment. Eventually, the
rite fell into disuse for women living in the world, and
was reserved for nuns. The Second Vatican Council
directed that it be revived and restored, and in nearly
every diocese, single women have embraced this form of
consecrated life.

DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR CAR
DO NOT LEAVE IN PEW
Dear Friends,
We are blessed to live in a beautiful community and our
two local cities of Covina and West Covina are safe
neighborhoods with little crime and good neighbors.
However there are always a few problems; because of that
sad reality I must remind you to:
Please NEVER leave any valuables visible in your car
and NEVER let anyone see you storing them under your seat or in the trunk for example (store
them safely out of site before you leave home).
And please NEVER leave your purse or any valuables
in the pews even when you come up for
Communion.
Father Bill, Pastor

The Vatican is sending the people of California a
special gift.
Vatican Splendors: A Journey of Faith and Art opened
at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and
Museum on March 6.
The exhibition is one of the largest Vatican collections
ever to tour North America, with over 200 objects
including personal mementos from both His Holiness
Pope Benedict and Pope Saint John Paul II.
From the sights and sounds for the grand Basilica to a
touchable cast of Saint John Paul II’s Hand, it’s true
“insiders” view of the Vatican, including spiritual,
artistic, and ceremonial treasures. It’s a lesson for us
all to better understand our history and faith presented
in both English and Spanish.
For a limited time, our parish will have a special
opportunity to purchase tickets at a $5.00 discount.
Enter discount code “Parish” when purchasing your
tickets.
I hope you all chose to visit thes very special
exhibition at the Reagan Library—the opportunity to
have it here is truly a blessing.

LECTURAS DE HOY
Primera Lectura — Llevados ante el sanedrín, los
apóstoles dieron testimonio de Jesucristo
(Hch 5:27-32, 40b-41).
Salmo — Te alabaré, Señor, eternamente. Aleluya
(Salmo 30(29)).
Segunda Lectura — En su visión Juan ve todo en el
cielo y en la tierra rindiendo honores y gloria al que está
en el trono y al Cordero (Apocalipsis 5:11-14).
Evangelio — Jesús se aparece a los discípulos cerca del
mar de Tiberíades (Juan 21:1-19 [1-14]).

REDIMIDOS
¿Recuerdas a Pedro la noche que arrestaron a Jesús?
Insistía en que nunca había oído de Jesús. Hoy estamos
llamados a unirnos a Pedro en dar testimonio del nombre
de Jesús como lo hace en la primera lectura, y a
proclamar nuestro amor a él tal como lo hace Pedro en el
pasaje del Evangelio. La poderosa imagen de la visión de
san Juan en la segunda lectura del libro del Apocalipsis
nos enseña la comunidad a la que pertenecemos cuando
tenemos fe en el nombre de Jesús. Nos unimos a todos los
seres vivientes “miles y millones” en “el cielo, sobre la
tierra, debajo de ella y en el mar, y todo lo que hay en
ellos” (Apocalipsis 5:11, 13). La majestad y dignidad
expresadas en cada lectura están en profundo contraste
con la oscura y miserable imagen de Pedro y los otros
apóstoles en los momentos en que Jesús era arrestado,
juzgado y crucificado. ¡Qué alivio que todos podemos ser
tan totalmente redimidos!

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
Muchas primeras comuniones se celebran en el
Tiempo de Pascua. Además de recibir el Cuerpo y la
Sangre de Jesús por primera vez en su vida los
comulgantes reciben un libro de oraciones, un rosario y
un escapulario. Como recuerdo del evento, muchos
comulgantes regalan a sus amigos y parientes alguna
estampita religiosa.
Las estampitas llevan imágenes de Jesucristo, la
Virgen, los ángeles o los santos y son muy populares
entre los latinos. Las ponemos en nuestros autos, en libros
como la Biblia o libros de oración. Las tenemos en
altarcitos domésticos o metidos en los marcos de las fotos
de nuestros seres queridos.
Muchos critican esta práctica recordando que en
Éxodo 20:3-5, Dios prohibió el uso de ídolos. Esto la
Iglesia católica nunca lo ha negado, pero recuerda que
Dios también pidió imágenes de ángeles para la arca de la
alianza (Éxodo 25: 17). En Números 21:8 mandó hacer
una imagen milagrosa de una serpiente. Ninguna de esas
imágenes es considerada un ídolo porque son imágenes al
servicio de Dios y recuerdo de su presencia igual que las
estampitas e imágenes religiosas.

Has recibido el Sacramento de Confirmación?
"Con el Bautismo y la Eucaristía,
el Sacramento de la Confirmación
constituye el conjunto de los
‘sacramentos de la iniciación
Cristiana’, cuya unidad debe ser
salvaguardada. Es preciso, pues,
explicar que la recepción de este
sacramento es necesaria para la
plenitud de la gracia bautismal.
En efecto, a los bautizados, el sacramento de la
Confirmación los une más íntimamente a la Iglesia
y los enriquece con una fortaleza especial del
Espíritu Santo. De esta forma quedamos obligados
aún más, como auténticos testigos de Cristo, a
extender y defender nuestra fe con sus palabras y
sus obras" 1285 Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica.
