POPE FRANCIS Quote of the Week:
JUBILEE YEAR OF MERCY
Dec. 8, 2015 – Nov. 20, 2016
The Church’s first truth is the love of
Christ. The Church makes herself a
servant of this love and mediates it to all
people: a love that forgives and
expresses itself in the gift of oneself.
Consequently, wherever the Church is
present, the mercy of the Father must be
evident . (S12)
Merciful Like the Father

PRAYER AND LIFE WORKSHOPS
Would you like to have a more meaningful prayer life? Come join a special class for learning how to
pray. By seeking God in prayer, you will find your life changing for the better. The Prayer and Life
Workshop consists of 15 weekly sessions that provide a carefully structured school for learning the art of
prayer. You will learn and practice different ways to pray and you will become very familiar with the Bible
because you will use it every day for 15 weeks during your private time for prayer and meditation. Come to
see for yourself what it’s all about. The sessions are on Monday evenings, at Sacred Heart Church, in the
Chapel of the parish center, from 6:15 to 8:15pm.

Readings for the Week...
TODAY’S READINGS
First Reading — Paul and Barnabas continue their
travels, spreading the faith and unifying the churches
(Acts 14:21-27).
Psalm — I will praise your name for ever, my king and
my God (Psalm 145).
Second Reading — John’s vision of God dwelling with
the human race (Revelation 21:1-5a).
Gospel — As Jesus has loved us, so we must love one
another (John 13:31-33a, 34-35).

TRUE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY
Can you imagine a world such as the one put before
us in today’s scripture readings? Communities of
believers everywhere would support and encourage one
another and be identified as Christians by the way they
love each other. It would be a world with no tears, no
death and mourning, no crying out in pain. “Behold, I
make all things new,” we hear the Son of God say in the
second reading from the book of Revelation (21:5).
Is this world of John’s vision only imaginary? Are
these faithful followers for whom Jesus prayed only a
savior’s dream? Today they are put before us as a worthy
goal. How much closer can we come to this vision of a
true Christian community in our lives today?

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
The French Revolution swept the church in France
away in an astonishing way, stripping the nation of every
possible vestige of the faith, not merely shuttering
churches, but using them as staging areas for pagan raves
and romps. While millions of faithful simply went
underground and hung on for the ride, even the seven-day
week was demolished along with the names of the
months. What emerged from the chaos was the
Napoleonic Code of 1792 governing church life, and
therefore marriage law in France, French Canada, and
elsewhere. The code makes civil marriage mandatory for
all citizens.
In practice, when the faithful marry, they go first to
the City Hall. There, the mayor performs the civil
marriage, usually accompanied by a patriotic speech
about the duties of the citizen, particularly in the rearing
of children. Then, typically after a lunch, everyone goes
off to change into more festive attire for the wedding
liturgy, featuring consent, the exchange of rings, and the
nuptial blessing. Sadly, only a minority of citizens today
celebrate even the civil form of the rite, and a fraction of
those continue on to the church. For those who do
celebrate the liturgy of marriage, however, there is near
certainty that the spouses are active worshipers, and that
they will later present their children for baptism.

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
PRAYER FOR PARISH PRIESTS
A rosary is being said each week in the
Parish Center Chapel on Thursdays, at 9:15 AM, for

COMMUNION MINISTERS NEEDED

Hospitality Minister... you will be welcoming people as
they arrive to Mass, tending their needs, helping them
find a place, gathering their gifts during the collections,

a deep faith in Christ and a love for the Mass. Your
desire to serve will help all our parishioners worship

DID YOU KNOW?
Preventing child sexual abuse is a
partnership. It requires education, training,
and action from parents, other adults,
organizations, and children. As adults, we
need to learn to recognize other adults who
are a risk to kids – ours and the others in the
community. April is Child Abuse Prevention
Month, which gives us all an opportunity to
learn more about what the Archdiocese of
Los Angeles is doing to prevent child sexual
abuse from happening. For more information

VERDADERA COMUNIDAD CRISTIANA
¿Te puedes imaginar un mundo tal como nos lo
presenta las lecturas bíblicas de hoy? Comunidades de
fieles por todas partes que se apoyan y se animan unas a
otras y se identifican como cristianos por el amor que se
tienen unos a otros. Sería un mundo sin lágrimas, sin
muerte ni luto, sin gritos de dolor. “Ahora todo lo hago
nuevo”, oímos decir al Hijo de Dios en la segunda lectura
del libro del Apocalipsis (21:5).
Este mundo de la visión de Juan, ¿es sólo un mundo
imaginario? Y esos fieles seguidores de Jesús por los
cuales él reza, ¿son un mero sueño del salvador? Hoy se
presentan ante nosotros como una meta valiosa. ¿Cómo
podemos acercarnos cada vez más a esta visión de una
verdadera comunidad cristiana en nuestra vida de hoy?

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
El primero de mayo es reconocido como el día
mundial del trabajo y conmemora seis mártires de
Chicago, quienes fueron fusilados en 1886 cuando la
policía trató de impedir una pelea campal durante una
huelga de obreros. Curiosamente esta fecha no es
reconocida por Estados Unidos pero sí por muchos países
latinoaméricanos. En 1954, el Papa Pió XII apoyó los
derechos del obrero incluyendo a san José Obrero en el
calendario cristiano. Esta fiesta celebra y recuerda la
doctrina social de la Iglesia católica, una doctrina que
insiste que: “El mensaje cristiano no aparta a las personas
de la edificación del mundo, ni les lleva a despreocuparse
del bien de sus semejantes, sino que les impone esta
colaboración como un deber” (Gaudiam et Spes 34).
Es justo conmemorar a san José como obrero en el día
mundial del trabajo, porque este santo varón nos recuerda
que al trabajar uno colabora con Dios en la creación
continua del mundo y de la humanidad. El trabajo no sólo
es derecho humano es una responsabilidad que se debe
tomar con amor al prójimo.

Prevenir el abuso sexual infantil es una
asociación. Requiere educación,
entrenamiento y acción de los padres de
familia, otros adultos, organizaciones y los
niños. Como adultos, necesitamos aprender a
reconocer a otros adultos que son un riesgo
para los niños, tanto los nuestros como los
demás en la comunidad. Abril es el Mes
Nacional de la Prevención del Abuso Infantil,
que nos ofrece una oportunidad para
aprender más sobre lo que la Arquidiócesis
de Los Ángeles está haciendo para prevenir
que ocurra el abuso sexual infantil.

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.
Clases en Español empiezan en Febrero para
adultos (18 años +) interesados de recibir el
sacramento de Confirmación.
