LA RENOVACION DE LA LITURGIA
La Instrucción General del Misal
Romano (IGMR) es el "flujo" general
de toda la Iglesia Católica Romana
universal y del Rito Romano. Cuando
se sigue la IGMR, las cosas parecen
familiares de Iglesia a Iglesia y es por
eso que podemos ir a Misa en
cualquier parte del mundo y sentir que
sabemos exactamente lo que está
sucediendo, incluso si no entendemos
el idioma:
‘… quiero repasar algunos puntos de nuestras prácticas
litúrgicas que necesitan que los recordemos con un
"recordatorio".

El Credo – Todos deben hacer una inclinación
profunda durante las palabras "y por obra del
Espíritu Santo se encarno de María, la Virgen, y se
hizo hombre". (IGMR 137 & 275b)

El Gran Amen hasta que termina la procesión de
Comunión – Quedarnos de pie del Amen cantado
después de la Oración Eucarística cuando el
Sacerdote muestra ambos el Cáliz y las Hostias y
canta o dice, "Por Cristo, con él y en él, a ti, Dios
Padre omnipotente, en la unidad del Espíritu Santo,
… por los siglos de los siglos" hasta que todos han
recibido la Comunión, la Preciosa Sangre ha sido
consumida y el Santísimo ha sido colocado en el
Sagrario.

El Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo –
o El uso de los términos correctas en nuestro
discurso e instrucciones, etc. –
Como Católicos creemos y el Obispo nos
recuerda, son el Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo,
no solamente pan y vino.
o

El Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo están
presentes aún después de que hayamos
terminado
la
Comunión
y
la
Misa.
Recordemos esto para siempre consumir
reverentemente el Cuerpo y la Sangre de
Cristo y al tiempo de purificar las patenas y
copas como tienen los pedazos y gotas que
son todavía el Cuerpo y Sangre de Cristo.
La comunión de las Hostias consagradas en la
Misa y sólo utilizando las Hostias del Sagrario al
momento que se estén terminando las Hostias de
esa Misa – Esto es para que "la Comunión quede
más claramente como una participación en el
sacrificio actual que se está celebrando" (IGMR 85).
Esto es más un recordatorio para los Sacerdotes y
los Ministros de la Comunión que ayudan a distribuir
la Comunión a la asamblea.

Hacer una inclinación de reverencia antes de
recibir la Comunión y responder “Amen” – antes
de recibir el Cuerpo y/o la Sangre de Cristo. Es
preferido hacer la inclinación de reverencia al
tiempo que la persona delante de usted ha recibido
la Comunión y se ha movido de la línea. La
respuesta al recibir la comunión es “Amen”. (IGRM
160 & 161)

Silencio después de la Comunión - Puede
sentarse o puede arrodillarse en oración privada
después de que se ha completada la Comunión.
Después de que el Santísimo ha sido colocado en
el Sagrario, debe haber algunos momentos de
silencio cuando cada persona puede sentarse o
puede arrodillarse en la oración y en la acción de
dar gracias. (IGRM 164)

El Altar no debe ser utilizado como una "mesa
común" para utilizar y colocar "materiales" en el en
cualquier momento. Tenemos que recordar que
aún cuando la Misa no es celebrada, el Altar es el
signo del Sacrificio del Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo
y no debe ser utilizado para colocar papeles, los
cuadernos, etc. especialmente durante ensayos ni
presentaciones.
Como un recordatorio de estos puntos y la reverencia,
podemos recordar la declaración que el Obispo
McGrath utiliza constantemente para enfocarnos en las
acciones, las palabras, y los artículos que se utilizan
durante la Misa: ¿"Si unos Marcianos aterrizaban y
entraran a nuestra Iglesia Católica y observaran una de
nuestra
celebración
de
Misa,
pensarían
y
comprenderían ellos que lo que celebramos es algo
muy importante"?
En Cristo,
Padre Ernesto Orci
Párroco
Nota: Este articulo es una "repetición" de un artículo
publicado en nuestro boletín el 29 de mayo de 2011
después de nuestra semana de estudio sobre la
"Renovación de la Liturgia", con los sacerdotes,
diáconos, seminaristas y Obispo McGrath. A medida
que revisamos y evaluamos nuestras celebraciones de
Misas aquí en la Parroquia Católica de San Lorenzo,
Mártir, estaremos actualizando y refrescante nuestras
prácticas como comunidad y para los ministros de la
liturgia basados en la Instrucción General del Misal
Romano (IGMR).
October 13, 2013 - 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Page 2
RENEWAL OF THE LITURGY
The General Instruction of the Roman
Missal (GIRM) is the general “flow” of
the Liturgy for the whole universal
Roman Catholic Church and Roman
Rite. When the GIRM is followed,
things look familiar from Church to
Church and that is why we can go to
Mass anywhere in the world and feel
like we know exactly what is
happening, even if we do not
understand the spoken language:
‘ … I want to review some items that need our
“refreshing” and a “reminder” based on liturgical
practices:
 Creed – Everyone should make a profound bow
during the words “and by the Holy Spirit was
incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became
man.” (GIRM 137 & 275b)
 Great Amen through end of Communion
procession – Please remain standing from the
sung Amen after the Eucharistic Prayer when the
Priest shows both the Chalice and Hosts singing
or saying, “Through him, with him, in him, in the
unity of the Holy Spirit, … forever and ever” until
everyone has received Communion, the Precious
Blood has been consumed, and the Blessed
Sacrament has been placed in the Tabernacle.
 Body and Blood of Christ
o Usage of the correct words in our speech
and instructions, etc. –
As we Catholics believe and the
Bishop reminded us, they are the
Body and Blood of Christ not just
bread and wine.
o The Body and Blood of Christ are present
even after we have finished Communion
and Mass. We are reminded to always
reverently consume and purify the vessels
since the particles and drops are still the
Body and Blood of Christ.
 Communion from the Hosts Consecrated at the
Mass and only using from the Tabernacle when
running out of Hosts – This is so that “Communion
will stand out more clearly as a participation in the
sacrifice actually being celebrated” (GIRM 85).
This is more a reminder for the Priests and the
Communion Ministers who
Communion to the assembly.
help
distribute
 Making a reverent bow before receiving
Communion and then responding “Amen” –
Both before receiving the Body and/or the Blood
of Christ. It is preferred that you make the
reverent bow as the person in front of you has
finished receiving Communion and has moved.
When receiving Communion, the response to the
words, “The Body of Christ” and “The Blood of
Christ”, is “Amen”. (GIRM 160 & 161)
 Silence After Communion – You can sit or kneel
in silent prayer after Communion has been
completed. After the Blessed Sacrament has
been placed in the Tabernacle, there should be
some moments of silence when each person can
either sit or kneel in prayer and thanksgiving.
(GIRM 164)
 Altar - The Altar is not to be used as a “common
table” to use and place “stuff” on it at anytime.
We have to remember that even when Mass is not
being celebrated, the Altar is the sign of the
Sacrifice of the Body and Blood of Christ and
should not be used to place papers, notebooks,
etc. especially during rehearsals or presentations.
As a reminder of these items and general reverence,
we can remember that Bishop McGrath constantly
uses the following statement as the way to focus on
the actions, words, and items used during the Mass:
“If Martians landed and entered our Catholic Church
and saw a Mass being celebrated, would they think
and understand what we were doing was important?”
In Christ,
Fr. Ernesto Orci
Pastor
Note: This is a “rerun” of an article printed in our
bulletin back on May 29, 2011 after our study week
on the “Renewal of the Liturgy” with the priests,
deacons, seminarians, and Bishop McGrath. As we
review and evaluate our Mass celebrations here at
St. Lawrence the Martyr Catholic Parish, we will be
updating and refreshing our practices as a
community and for the liturgical ministers based on
the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM).

I NCOME I NEQUALITY
C ONFESSION OF F AITH
I read a startling
statistic on Income
Inequality in an ad for
the
documentary
movie “Inequality for
All” which draws on the
research and writings of
Robert Reich including
this phrase: “Today, the
richest 400 Americans
have more wealth than
the bottom 150 million
of us put together. …
“Think about it – FOUR HUNDRED PEOPLE HAVE
MORE WEALTH THAN HALF THE POPULATION OF
THE UNITED STATES!!!”
The passage about Naaman’s cure from leprosy
begins in verses earlier than those we read today.
Starting at 2 Kings 5:1 we learn that Naaman is an
esteemed and respected commander of the king of
Aram. A new servant in his household, a girl whom
the Arameans had captured from Israel’s land,
wanted Naaman to present himself to the prophet in
Samaria, who would cure him of his leprosy.
Naaman speaks to the king of Aram, who provides a
letter for the king of Israel, attesting to the desire for
a cure.
By: Jim Balquist
If Pope Benedict were to comment, he would note again
that this type of situation is unjust and leads to
frustration and a loss of dignity, which in turn leads to
social unrest, which in turn can lead to violence and
worse.
Pope Francis would concentrate on the relationship of
capitalism as the cause of income inequality which, in
turn, leads to poverty, which, in turn again, leads to a
denial of dignity and fundamental human rights such as
food, shelter, adequate health care, education, etc.
Reich concentrates on the fact that the middle class can
only buy so many jeans, pillows, autos, and houses. If
they continue to get smaller, the economic engine that
powers the nation will sputter and stall.
The wealthier “invest”. They buy a second home so that
the “entry price” for first-time buyers becomes
unaffordable. They exert political influence to “get rid of
the homeless and the poor because they are ‘bad for
business’”.
They work to increase their political
influence by developing laws and cultures to de facto
exclude minorities, students, and the elderly from their
constitutional right to vote (because they might vote the
“wrong way”).
And Pope Francis, who “sees” the limitations of
capitalism in these situations, would say that this
situation will continue and get worse if we continue
to de facto support our culture of indifference to the
poor.
Open our eyes, Lord, and let our faith guide our
actions.
By: Deborah Ferry
The king of Israel, however, responds derisively.
The prophet Elisha somehow finds out about the
encounter and sends word to the king to send
Naaman to him. Naaman, along with his cohort,
arrives at the door of Elisha’s house. At the
doorstep, Naaman receives the message from the
prophet to go and wash seven times in the Jordan and
his flesh will be healed. But Naaman balks,
disappointed that the prophet himself did not come
out to greet him, invoke the Lord’s name, and lay
hands on him. Naaman’s anger leads him to turn
away from Elisha’s home. He concludes that the
God of Israel is no better than any other god.
Naaman’s disappointment, however, is not the end of
the story. His servants intervene and help him to
think logically about the situation, ultimately
convincing him to follow through on the simple act
of washing in the Jordan. This is the point at which
today’s First Reading begins. The focus of the
reading is not so much Naaman’s cure, but his
confession of faith. Elisha’s refusal of Naaman’s gift
in thanksgiving for the cure is also a confession of
faith. It shows that those who serve the Lord are not
in need of material gifts, because their life comes
from the Lord God and is true gift itself.
At the end of the reading, Naaman requests two mule
-loads of earth so that he can continue to worship
God in his homeland.

Saint Lawrence Middle School Drops Eggs for S.T.E.M. Class
Goal: Move a marble
across the science lab
on a fishing wire using
a limited amount of
resources.
Goal: Build a twentyfour inch bridge from
two pounds of pasta
that supports forty
pounds of weight.
Goal: Create a device
that will keep an egg
intact
a er
it’s
dropped
from
a
height of 30-50 feet.
The Saint Lawrence Middle School new Elec ve Program
offers nearly twenty courses that provide academic, crea ve,
technological and personal growth op ons for the middle
school student.
One is a lab course covering Science,
Technology, Engineering and Mathema cs, known as
S.T.E.M., which uses twenty-first century skills to develop,
design, and analyze projects over the course of the year. For
the egg drop project, students used readily available packing
material brought from home to swaddle a raw egg in a shoe
box and then sealed
the box in such a way
that it would withstand
the drop but s ll be
able to be opened.
Assistant Principal and
S.T.E.M. teacher Adrian
Gardner then took the
boxes up to a height of
about 40 feet in a li ,
and gleefully tossed
them to the blacktop.
When the students
took their boxes
back to the lab, all
but
two
were
intact, a higher
than usual success
rate for a project.
“Many
mes in
designing a project
the students will be
more unsuccessful
than successful in their ini al designs,” commented Mr.
Gardner. “We want students to learn from the failures and
see them as a step to success.” This class facilitates thinking,
analysis, ar cula on and problem solving—all part of the new
California Common Core curriculum.
