The Third Sunday of Advent
John answered them all, saying,
"I am baptizing you with water,
but one mightier than I is coming.
I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals.
He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire."
Lk 3:16

PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God
rebuke him, we humbly pray: and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all the
evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen

Blessed Advent!
3rd Sunday of Advent
Luke 3:10-18
Remember last week where we read
about this crazy man John "crying out
in the desert"? Well, this week we
read about what the people of his time
wondered about him. They all asked
him "What should we do?"
The crowds were asking, the tax collectors were asking, the soldiers were asking. And he answers each of
them according to the temptation of their particular
state in life. To the crowds he says, share of your
abundance. To the tax collectors he says, stop taking
more money for yourselves. Only collect from the
people what is proscribed. To the soldiers he says,
stop extorting money.
And so, what must we do to prepare? I ask myself if I
am sharing from even the little that I think I have. Do
I charge more than a fair price for my work? If I lend
money to anyone, do I expect too much more in return?
I challenge myself this week, and I challenge you, to
take some time and think about how we are preparing
for the coming birth of Christ, in history, in today's
world, and in the future when he will come to bring all
of creation back to the Father.
Msgr. Mike
Msgr. Mike has been recuperating at
home. He will not be active in the parish

Please continue to Pray for Msgr. Mike
PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS
God of Love, You show your favor for us and grace us
through baptism. Bless us with the courage to carry out the
mission of Jesus. Grant us open and generous hearts to see
the needs of others and to respond with compassion. May the
Church be blest with women and men who are dedicated to
You through marriage, the single life, the diaconate,
priesthood, and the consecrated life. It is in Christ and
through Christ that we offer ourselves to You now and
forever.
Amen.
ORACION POR LAS VOCACIONES
Dios de Amor, muestras tu favor hacia nosotros
y nos das tu gracia en el Bautismo. Bendicenos con valor
para llevar a cabo la mision de Jesus. Concedenos corazones
abiertos y generosos para que viendo las necesidades de los
demas respondamos con compassion. Que la Iglesia sea
bendecida con mujeres y hombres que se dedican a Ti en el
matrimonio, la vida celibe, el diaconado, el sacerdocio y la
vida consagrada. Es en Cristo y por Cristo que nos
ofrecemos a Ti ahora y siempre.
Amen
Prayer of Pope Francis for the
Jubilee Year of Mercy
Oración de Papa Francisco para
Jubileo de la Misericordia
Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us to be merciful like the
heavenly Father, and have told us that whoever sees you sees
Him. Show us your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved
by money; the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking
happiness only in created things; made Peter weep after his
betrayal, and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.
Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that
you spoke to the Samaritan woman: “If you knew the gift of
God!”
You are the visible face of the invisible Father, of the God who
manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy: let
the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and
glorified.
You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in
weakness in order that they may feel compassion for those in
ignorance and error: let everyone who approaches them feel
sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.
Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing,
so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from
the Lord, and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may
bring good news to the poor, proclaim liberty to captives and
the oppressed, and restore sight to the blind.
We ask this of you, Lord Jesus, through the intercession of
Mary, Mother of Mercy; you who live and reign with the Father
and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.
Señor Jesucristo, tú nos has enseñado a ser misericordiosos
como el Padre del cielo, y nos has dicho que quien te ve, lo ve
también a Él. Muéstranos tu rostro y obtendremos la salvación.
Tu mirada llena de amor liberó a Zaqueo y a Mateo de la
esclavitud del dinero; a la adúltera y a la Magdalena del buscar
la felicidad solamente en una creatura; hizo llorar a Pedro luego
de la traición, y aseguró el Paraíso al ladrón arrepentido.
Haz que cada uno de nosotros escuche como propia la palabra
que dijiste a la samaritana: ¡Si conocieras el don de Dios!
Tú eres el rostro visible del Padre invisible, del Dios que manifiesta
su omnipotencia sobre todo con el perdón y la misericordia:
haz que, en el mundo, la Iglesia sea el rostro visible de Ti,
su Señor, resucitado y glorioso.
Tú has querido que también tus ministros fueran revestidos
de debilidad para que sientan sincera compasión por los que
se encuentran en la ignorancia o en el error: haz que quien se
acerque a uno de ellos se sienta esperado, amado y perdonado
por Dios.
Manda tu Espíritu y conságranos a todos con su unción para
que el Jubileo de la Misericordia sea un año de gracia del Señor
y tu Iglesia pueda, con renovado entusiasmo, llevar la Buena
Nueva a los pobres proclamar la libertad a los prisioneros y
oprimidos y restituir la vista a los ciegos.
Te lo pedimos por intercesión de María, Madre de la Misericordia,
a ti que vives y reinas con el Padre y el Espíritu Santo por
los siglos de los siglos.
Amen.
Amén.

3rd Sunday of Advent
Holiday magazines are well known for providing quick, practical ideas for trimming the house, welcoming guests, and preparing enticing food. The suggestions that are offered are designed to help the host and hostess show off a stunning atmosphere without spending days and weeks preparing for a party
or dinner that may only last an hour or two. Often everyday
items are transformed with a swatch of fabric, a candle, or
some evergreens. Ingenious cutting makes plain vegetables or
ordinary hors d'oeuvres into holiday delights. The operative
concepts in getting people to buy these idea books and read
them are: quick, easy, and practical.
In the Gospel today, John the Baptist offers quick, easy, and
practical ideas for those who would prepare for the coming of
the Christ. As St. Luke tells us, people in his day were filled
with expectation. John was pretty straightforward in what he
thought they should do: If you have two coats, give one away
to somebody who doesn't have one; be equitable in your dealings with others; don't push people around; don't lie about people. In modern parlance, we might say that John the Baptist
was asking people to act justly in the world.
Unfortunately, today we don't often think of justice as quick,
easy, or practical. Our understanding of justice is more often
colored by the contemporary legal system than by the divine
laws of the covenant that binds God and his people. There was
a reciprocity and equanimity in the covenantal relationship.
There were duties to be fulfilled on each side. John was asking
that those who were filled with expectation for the coming of
the Messiah would set themselves aright with one another so
that God's covenant would find full expression in the relationships that bind people to God and to one another. Justice is
really about leveling things out. And when you think about it,
that is pretty easy. If you have more, then you share.

THE DIVINE MERCY Weekly Message
During one of the adorations, Jesus promised me that:
With souls that have recourse to My mercy and with
those that glorify and proclaim My great mercy to
others, I will deal according to My infinite mercy at
the hour of their death.
My Heart is sorrowful, Jesus said, because even chosen souls do not understand the greatness of My mercy. Their relationship [with Me] is, in certain ways,
imbued with mistrust. Oh, how much that wounds My
Heart! Remember My Passion, and if you do not believe My words, at least believe My wounds.
Mensaje semanal De La DIVINA MISERICORDIA
Durante una adoración Jesús me prometió: Con las almas
que recurran a Mi misericordia y con las almas que
glorifiquen y proclamen Mi gran misericordia a los
demás, en la hora de la muerte Me comportaré según Mi
infinita misericordia.
Mi Corazón sufre, continuaba Jesús, a causa de que ni las
almas elegidas entienden lo grande que es Mi misericordia; en su relación [conmigo] en cierto modo hay desconfianza. Oh, cuanto esto hiere mi Corazón. Recuerden Mi
Pasión, y si no creéis en Mis palabras, creed al menos en
Mis llagas.

Sometimes It’s Hard to Ask for Help
We’re brought up to be strong, selfsufficient, independent people. We
tend to think that if we ask for help, it
is a sign of weakness. So we try to
keep our struggles hidden, stuffed
deep inside. However, that’s not
God’s plan. Galatians 6:2 says, “Bear
one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
God wants us to care for others—and allow others to care
for us in our time of need.
If you’re sad or struggling inside, don’t suffer alone. Ask
for help. We’ve got a team of Stephen Ministers who are
ready to listen, care, encourage, pray, and help you
through a tough time.
Find out more about Stephen Ministry by talking with
one of our Stephen Leaders:
Jerry Krimbill, 392-0602 or Pam Hughes, 394-5723
or email Pam at [email protected]
Our Stephen Ministers are there to care!

5 Marriage Tips To Start
The Year of MERCY
FORGIVE – No one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. If
you make forgiveness a habit – for everything from major mistakes to little annoyances you will keep resentment from growing.
CALL – DO NOT TEXT BUT CALL your spouse two times
randomly today and let them know how you care for them, love
them and appreciate them. It is easy to get busy with life and
forget to let our true love know how much we really love them.
Love them as if today is your last day!
GRATITUDE – Make a gratitude journal for your spouse by
writing what he or she does that you are grateful for. During
times of wanting to fight and argue, bite your tongue and read
that journal before you criticize in a moment of frustration.
ADORATION – Take a few minutes during the week to stop at
a church and sit before the Tabernacle, simply be with Christ,
the merciful. Thank God for your spouse and list the ways in
which you are thankful. If you can, go to adoration together as a
couple.
PRAY – Praying together helps a couple stay together! Pray a
Rosary every night before bed with your spouse. Allow God
back into your marriage!

Reflection ~ Sure Bet
One time, as I was walking through a casino in Las Vegas, I
heard a lot of cheering and commotion coming from a roulette
table. Curiosity got the best of me, and I wandered over to see
what was going on. I got there just in time to see the roulette
operator slide three large stacks of chips toward a rather inebriated woman. She was enjoy herself immensely, all the while readily admitting that she had no idea what she was doing. The crowd
gathered to watch the spectacle because she had won six times in
a row, each time betting all her winnings again on red. With another loud cackle she yelled, "Put 'em all on red!" and she slid all
her chips onto the red marker. Unfortunately, the woman was
oblivious to the odds that dictated sooner or later she would lose.
Sure enough, on the next spin, she lost--everything. Dumbfounded, she staggered from the table, her exuberance turned to disbelief.
Unfortunately, most of us approach life much like that woman
approached gambling. We try all different strategies to solve our
problems and to get ahead, usually in vain. Some of us are fortunate enough to finally stumble on the one strategy that will always win: Christ. Nothing else truly works. Nothing else can
help. Nothing else can save. Nothing. Only Christ. We are supposed to put it all on Christ. He is the only sure bet. Put everything on Christ--your worries, your fears, your dreams and your
hopes, everything. When you do, you will win every time.
Whatever gains I had, these I have come to consider a loss because of Christ. More than that, I even consider everything as a
loss because of the supreme good of knowing Christ Jesus my
Lord. For his sake I have accepted the loss of all things and I
consider them so much rubbish, that I may gain Christ.

Holy Trinity Altar Guild Needs More Handmaids of the Lord
The Altar Guild needs more parishioners to ensure that the Holy Trinity masses and the Blessed Sacrament Chapel are
“pleasing in His eyes”. Help is needed and the Altar Guild may be your ministry. The Altar Guild cleans and washes
over 90 communion linens every week. We ensure the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, the main Altar, the offertory table,
and the credence table is dressed with clean linens. Help washing the communion vessels and ensuring the Sanctuary candle is full during adoration times are other duties. We have also added the duties of decorating the Church and Altar for liturgical seasons and special
Masses. “Do not be afraid”
Our Altar Guild coordinator will instruct and answer any questions you may have .

Everyday Stewardship
Pope Francis has begun this Jubilee Year of Mercy because, as he has stated, mercy is "the beating heart of the Gospel." He states that
the purpose of the year is to "reach everyone, both believers and those far away, as a sign that the Kingdom of God is already present in
our midst!" This is a profound statement because he is saying that mercy is for all humanity, not just those who are Christ's disciples,
and we are not a people waiting for a coming kingdom, for the kingdom of God is already in our midst.
When John the Baptist was speaking to his followers he spoke about showing mercy to others by giving away your second coat and not
collecting more from others than what they owe you. But how much greater that mercy needs to be now that we live in a world redeemed by the power of Jesus Christ's death and resurrection! Certainly, the principles of stewardship can assist us in truly being fruitful in this jubilee year.
As good everyday stewards, we should not only see the second coat as something we should give away, but indeed the first coat is not
truly ours either. For it would not exist except for the generosity of our God. Since we are only stewards of all we have instead of owners, our ability to be generous greatly increases. We then begin to see that we have many tools at our disposal to offer mercy to those in
need. This year we have the chance to really put into practice that which we claim to be true. As mature disciples we are to answer
God's call regardless of the cost. During this jubilee year may we now more than ever offer ourselves freely to do his will.
Aging religious need your help. In the United States today, there
are more than 33,000 senior Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests. These religious worked tirelessly in Catholic
schools, hospitals, and agencies, usually for little to no pay. As a
result, many religious communities lack adequate savings for retirement and eldercare. Your gift to today's collection for the Retirement Fund for Religious helps provide medications, nursing
care, and more. Please be generous.
Join Holy Trinity's moms group

Childcare will be provided for children over the age of 1,
but you must RSVP by Monday, Dec. 14, to guarantee a spot.
We are a group of moms working towards a closer relationship with God. Moms who strive to ignite a passion for God
in our children and families. Moms who know we can't do
it alone, support each other and need each other. Moms
who band together for spiritual growth, social activities,
and service projects in an effort to make a difference in this
world, one tiny face at a time.
We meet first and third Fridays of the month.
