POPE FRANCIS Quote of the Week:
JUBILEE YEAR OF MERCY
Dec. 8, 2015 – Nov. 20, 2016
Mercy: the word reveals the very mystery of
the Most Holy Trinity. Mercy: the ultimate
and supreme act by God come to meet us.
Mercy: the fundamental law that dwells in
the heart of every person who looks
sincerely into the eyes of his brothers and
sisters on the path of life. Mercy: the bridge
that connects God and man, opening our
hearts to the hope of being loved forever
despite our sinfulness. (S2 )
Merciful Like the Father

One Day Only: Saturday, May 28, 2016
8:15am Mass, 4:15pm Confessions, & 8:00pm Confessions; ALL CANCELED
We deeply regret the inconvenience it causes. We hope you will understand and forgive us.
On Saturday, May 28th we are pleased and honored to celebrate two Conﬁrma on Masses. We will conﬁrm our teens
at a special Mass scheduled for 10:00am and then later, at the regular 5:30pm Mass we will conﬁrm our adults. We
are delighted to welcome Bishop Alex Salazar for the celebra on of both Conﬁrma on Masses.
Because there is a great deal of work to be done to set up and prepare the church and sanctuary in prepara on for
each Mass; and because there will be some noise in all that has to be done we need to cancel the regular confessions
along with the regular morning Mass. All will return to normal the Saturday a er Conﬁrma ons. This is a once a year
cancela on of the morning Mass & evening confessions.
After the evening Mass there will be a photo session in the church with the Bishop and newly confirmed. Next there is a customary
gathering of the priests and deacons with the Bishop. As a result we will be unable to cover the 8:00pm confessions. Once more,
please note, this is a once a year cancelation of the morning Mass & evening confessions.

JOURNEY OF FAITH
We are on a long and eventful journey. Today’s
readings for Trinity Sunday succinctly cover the depth
and breadth of our human travels.
The very beginnings of our journey are revealed in
the reading from Proverbs. God’s plan filled with divine
wisdom was born before the earth was made. In today’s
Gospel, Jesus speaks of his own personal journey. He has
come from the Father and will return to the Father. Only
then will the Advocate—the Spirit of Truth—take us
This does not diminish the fact that the journey will
be hard. The very setting of the Gospel is the night before
Jesus died. As Saint Paul writes to the Romans, “[W]e
even boast of our afflictions, knowing that affliction
produces endurance, and endurance, proven character,
and proven character, hope” (Romans 5:3-4).
Ultimately, our human journey is modeled by the
Holy Trinity—a family of love among Father, Son, and
Spirit that we are all called to emulate.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
Around the turn of the fourth century, Augustine, still
fairly fresh from the baptismal waters in Milan, was
elected bishop of a tiny city in North Africa, Hippo. He
told his people, “While I am frightened by what I am for
you, then I am consoled by what I am with you. For you I
am a bishop, with you I am a Christian.” He had his
priorities right, and also knew that everyone coming from
the water arises with a ministry, a specific role, in
bringing about God’s kingdom.
If we were asked to purge English of Greek
vocabulary, we would gain an insight into key ministries
in our church. Bishop, from the Greek episkopos, would
become simply “overseer;” priest, from the Greek
presybter, would become “elder;” and deacon, from the
Greek diakonos, would be “servant.” Each title stands in
relationship to all the baptized, serving the community,
helping it to be the Body of Christ. In our deepest
tradition, each of these ordained ministries is attuned to
help us become our best selves, to hunger and thirst for
the coming of God’s kingdom. The goal for each one of
us is to be able to recognize the presence of Christ in
worship and in service. Although only some of us are
ordained to ministry, each of us is called to ministry.

OFFICIAL FUNERAL MASS
The oﬃcial Funeral Mass for Father Jeﬀ was held on
Tuesday, May 17 at 11:00am at Our Lady of the Valley in

were present for his Funeral Mass.

welcome to come and participate.
MEMORIAL MASS AT OUR PARISH
To assist those who ﬁnd it diﬃcult to get to Canoga Park
and to allow us as a parish to both mourn Father Jeﬀ’s
passing as well as to give thanks for his priesthood we
will celebrate a Memorial Mass in his honor and memory
Monday + June 6, 2016 + 5:30pm Mass
Father Jeﬀ will be greatly missed. We have all come to
appreciate and love his quick wit and his very special
sense of humor. Many parishioners suggested he should
have had a regular stand-up comedy rou ne! He
brought smiles to every face in the parish and a laugh to
every heart and soul. He was always warm, loving and
I personally will miss the many ways he was a helpful
friend to me, oﬀering generously to ﬁll in for me or cover
for me here and there so that I could be free to deal with
some crisis. I never told him I needed help; rather he
had a sixth sense that always realized when I could use a
helping hand. He reminded me of Radar on the TV series
Father Jeﬀ was originally ordained for the Archdiocese of
Washington, D.C. in 1976 and was celebra ng his 40th
anniversary of priesthood this May 2016. Born April 18,
1950 he died on April 25th, just one week a er his 66th
Please remember him in your prayers. I pray you can
join us for his Funeral Mass &/or Memorial Mass.

VIAJE DE FE
Estamos en un viaje largo y lleno de acontecimientos.
Las lecturas de hoy para el Domingo de la Santísima
Trinidad cubren sucintamente la profundidad y la
amplitud de nuestros viajes humanos.
Los comienzos de nuestro viaje se revelan en la
lectura de Proverbios. El plan de Dios lleno de sabiduría
divina nació antes de que la tierra existiera. En el
Evangelio de hoy, Jesús habla de su propio viaje personal.
Él ha venido del Padre y volverá al Padre. Sólo en ese
momento el Paráclito –el Espíritu de la Verdad– nos
llevará hacia adelante.
Esto no disminuye la dificultad del viaje. El contexto
mismo del Evangelio es la noche antes de la muerte de
Jesús. Como san Pablo les escribe a los romanos, “Nos
gloriamos hasta de los sufrimientos, pues sabemos que el
sufrimiento engendra la paciencia, la paciencia engendra
la virtud sólida, la virtud sólida engendra la
esperanza” (Romanos 5:3-4).
En última instancia, nuestro viaje humano está
modelado por la Santísima Trinidad –una familia de amor
entre el Padre, el Hijo y el Espíritu que todos somos
llamados a emular.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
Este domingo la Iglesia celebra la Solemnidad de la
Santísima Trinidad: Padre, Hijo y Espíritu Santo. Este
dogma acerca de la realidad de Dios es la clave para
comprender la verdad de la religión cristiana. Mediante el
poder del Espíritu Santo el Padre envió al Hijo como
Salvador del mundo. Estas tres personas son un solo Dios.
No es una doctrina fácil de comprender y mucho
menos de pintar en arte sagrado. Sin embargo muchos
artistas latinoamericanos han intentado pintar
simbólicamente la verdad de la Santísima Trinidad. En
muchos casos imaginan al Padre cargando a Jesús en la
cruz y soplando sobre él el Espíritu en forma de paloma.
A veces Padre e Hijo están entronados sobre las nubes
soplando el Espíritu mutuamente y las alas de la paloma
tocan los labios de ambos. En algunos casos el Padre, el
Hijo y el Espíritu Santo son tres cabezas que salen de un
solo cuerpo. Seguido los tres tienen el mismo rostro
distinguiéndose solo por el color de sus vestiduras o los
símbolos que cargan.

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.
