PASTOR'S NOTES
Repent……………….. Fr. Bernie and I have a long
time tradition of celebrating birthdays and anniversaries.
Fr. Bernie’s anniversary of ordination is in late May and
his birthday is in late June. My anniversary of ordination
is in mid-July and my birthday is in late August. Our tradition is simple and reflects something both of us enjoy very
much….food and drink. The simple tradition is that I take
him out for his anniversary/birthday sometime between
the two dates to the restaurant of his choice, and he does
the same for me. We do not exchange cards or gifts, simply a dinner at the restaurant of choice. If we are lucky,
the other will throw in breakfast at Mimi’s or one of the fine
local restaurants in Vista. So the other night it was my
time to get a free dinner at the restaurant of my choice. I
am always the driver when we go, even when it is my anniversary/birthday that we are celebrating. It just works
out better that way. So last Saturday evening (I didn’t
have either of the evening masses) we were on our way
to the restaurant which is located in Oceanside. As we
were traveling on Vista Way (having left Highway 78) we
came up behind a large pick-up truck. The truck had a
camper shell and on the back window of the camper shell
there was a single word, in large red letters…REPENT.
Below the word repent there were flames of fire. Obviously, the message was turn to the Lord or you will burn in
Hell. Fr. Bernie and I saw the sign at the same time and
both of us turned to the other in disbelief. What a terribly
negative message for us to be sending to people who do
not believe in the Lord. Because the message was only
one word and an image of flames of fire it is impossible to
tell exactly what the individual was trying to say. Usually,
repentance is the first step towards surrendering your life
to Christ. Peter, when asked by the large crowd who
heard him speak at Pentecost, “What are we to do?” responded, “Repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of
yours sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
Usually, the English word repent or repentance is connected with conversion or in Greek, metanoia. It refers to
a turning around and going in a completely different direction. The question I have is what will turn us around and
send us in a completely different direction? Will fear turn
us around? Will it really give us the inner strength to head
in a completely different direction! Well, yes, maybe for a
short period of time. For instance, I was walking down a
path in Durango, Colorado one day looking at the flowers
and all the beautiful plants; when I looked up there was a
bear walking straight at me, as unaware of me as I had
been of it. The bear discovered me just a millisecond after I discovered it. In FEAR I turned and head 180 degrees in the opposite direction, and so did the bear. Fear
motivated me to turn and “get out of Dodge” as the saying
goes. But within minutes, I was again walking in the
woods enjoying the flora and fauna. In my opinion, fear is
pretty much the same in the spiritual life. It may motivate
us for a brief time, but it will not sustain a lifetime of moving toward the Lord. If this is true, then what will motivate
someone to make significant change that is lasting?
LOVE! Love is the only thing that will cause us to change
ourselves and continue to move in a totally new direction.
And it is my opinion, that love is the only valid reason to
repent. In my worldview, God is not trying to frighten us
into a relationship with Him. What kind of a relationship
would that be anyway? From my point of view, God
wants us to fall in love with Him/Her, just as God has
fallen in love with us. In my scenario, flames are not the
reason to convert; unconditional, faithful love is! I can’t
wait to see the word repent in big red letters inside a huge
Heart. In my opinion, that would be the real message!!

Prepare ye the Way … http://www.giusevista.org/donduongcuaducchua/
Một trong những sở thích tôi có từ lâu là được nhìn những
tấm kính màu (stained glass) rực rở được ánh sáng rọi
xuyên qua, tạo thành một bức tranh đẹp tuyệt vời. Đối với
tôi bức tranh này không những đẹp trong nghệ thuật mà
nhất là đẹp trong hình tượng và nội dung.
Khi nhìn toàn diện bức tranh chúng ta nhận ra ngay là nó
được làm nên từ những miếng kính lớn nhỏ khác nhau, đủ
mọi màu sắc và hình dạng; có những miếng vẹn toàn nhưng
có những miếng sứt mẻ, có những miếng rực rở sắc màu
nhưng cũng có những miếng chỉ đơn điệu với màu trắng
hoặc đen nhàm chán. Nhưng mổi một tấm kính có vị trí
quan trọng và nhất định của nó, không thể thiếu được. Điều
đó làm tôi liên tưởng đến Giáo Hội, đến Cộng Đoàn Giáo Xứ của chúng ta. Tôi nghĩ ngay đến
mổi thành viên trong cộng đoàn, tuy đa hình đa dạng, nhưng mổi một thành viên có một vị trí
nhất định và quan trọng để làm nên một Cộng Đoàn Yêu Thương và Hiệp Nhất, một “Chi Thể
Đức Kitô” tại thế.
Khi chúng ta nhìn vào bức tranh, chúng ta còn nhận thấy có những lằn đậm rất rỏ ràng giữa
những miếng kính. Đó là thép sắt, một đàng là để nối kết những tấm kính nhỏ lại với nhau,
nhưng cũng là để bù đắp những sứt mẻ và bất toàn của mổi tấm kính và làm cho những tấm
kính nối kết lại với nhau một cách chặt chẽ và hài hòa - những lằn thép sắt đó là ân sủng và
tình thương của Thiên Chúa.
Vì thế mổi người chúng ta trước hết hãy biết nhận ra vị trí của mình, nhưng đồng thời còn biết
mở lòng đón nhận anh chị em mình để nhờ ân sủng và tình thương của Chúa, chúng ta cùng
làm nên bức tranh tuyệt mỹ này. Qua đó ánh sáng là Chúa Kitô có thể rọi xuyên qua để mang
đến sự bình an thảnh thơi hạnh phúc cho những ai đón nhận. - Lm. QN

Mensaje del Párroco
Arrepiéntete… El P. Bernie y yo tenemos
una larga tradición celebrando cumpleaños y aniversarios. El aniversario de ordenación del P. Bernie es a
fines de Mayo y su cumpleaños a fines de junio. Mi
cumpleaños de ordenación es a mediados de Julio y mi
cumpleaños a fines de agosto. Nuestra tradición es
muy simple y refleja algo en ambos que gozamos mucho… comer y beber. La simple tradición es que lo llevo a cenar para su aniversario/cumpleaños entre las
dos fechas al restaurant de su elección, y él hace lo
mismo conmigo. No intercambiamos tarjetas o regalos,
simplemente una cena en el restaurant favorito. Si
tenemos suerte, podrá ser un desayuno en Mimi’s u
otro restaurant fino de Vista. Así, la otra noche fue mi
turno de tener una cena gratis en el restaurant de mi
elección. Soy siempre el chofer cuando vamos, aunque
sea mi cumpleaños o mi aniversario. Simplemente de
esa manera, ha sido mejor. El sábado pasado, (que no
tenía ninguna de las Misas) estábamos en camino a un
restaurant en Oceanside. Cuando manejábamos en
Vista Way íbamos detrás de una troca grande. Y la
troca llevaba un ‘camper’ y en su ventanilla trasera
llevaba una calcomanía que decía en letras grandes y
rojas: ARREPIENTETE. Y detrás de la palabra había
llamas de fuego. Es obvio que el mensaje venía del Señor, y si no lo hacías, irías al Infierno. El P. Bernie y
yo vimos el letrero y al mismo tiempo ambos nos miramos con incredulidad. ¡Qué mensaje tan negativo para
nosotros siendo enviado para la gente que no cree en el
Señor! Debido a que el mensaje solo era de una palabra y la imagen de las llamas de fuego, es imposible
decir exactamente lo que alguien estaba tratando de
decir. De ordinario, el arrepentimiento es el primer
paso hacia una entrega de la vida a Cristo. Pedro,
cuando se le preguntó por la multitud que lo había escuchado el día de Pentecostés: ¿Qué es lo que vamos a
hacer? Respondió: “Arrepiéntanse y sean bautizados
para el perdón de sus pecados; y ustedes recibirán el
don del Espíritu Santo”. Usualmente, la palabra, en
inglés, arrepentir o arrepentimiento está unida con
conversión o en griego con metanoia. Se refiere dar
vuelta en U y avanzar en una dirección completamente
diferente. La pregunta que yo tengo es: ¿qué es aquello
que nos hará dar vuelta en U y que nos llevará a una
dirección completamente distinta? ¡Que nos hará regresar con temor, que nos dará la fuerza para cambiar
totalmente de dirección! Quizás, sí, por un breve período de tiempo. Por ejemplo, un día, yo estaba caminando , en Durango Colorado, por una brecha mirando las
flores y todas las otras plantas hermosas, cuando de
repente, vi a un oso caminando en dirección mía, sin
darse cuenta de mi presencia. El oso me descubrió en
una milésima de segundo después de que yo lo había
visto. Lleno de MIEDO regresé en la dirección opuesta,
y el oso también. El miedo me motivó a darme vuelta y
volar. Pero, en cosa de minutos ya estaba caminando
de nuevo en medio del bosque gozando de la flora y de
la fauna. En mi opinión, el miedo es lo mismo en la
vida espiritual, nos puede motivar por solo unos momentos, pero, no nos motivará para tener una vida
entera en el camino al Señor. Si esto es verdad, ¿Qué
será aquello que pueda motivar a alguien a un cambio
definitivo? ¡EL AMOR! El amor es lo único que nos
hará cambiar y continuar en un movimiento hacia una
dirección nueva. Y, es mi opinión, que el amor es la
una valida razón para arrepentirse. En general, Dios
nos está tratando de atemorizar pero hacia una relación con El. ¿Qué clase de relación sería esa? Desde mi
punto de vista, Dios quiere que nos enamoremos de Él,
de la misma manera que Él se ha enamorado de nosotros. En mi visión, no es el fuego la razón de convertirme sino ¡el amor incondicional y fiel! Estoy desesperado por ver la palabra arrepiéntete con letras grandes
en rojo dentro de un enorme Corazón. En mi opinión,
¡ese sería el verdadero mensaje!!!!
