Welcome to St. Mary Catholic Church!
EXILE Both Isaiah and Peter had the task of comforting
and encouraging their communities during times of exile.
The Israelites were in geographic exile from Israel; to them
this was, in effect, the same as being in exile from their
God. The early Christians, following the Resurrection, expected an immediate return of Christ in glory; they, too,
felt in “exile” as the delay of the Second Coming grew
longer and longer. All four of scripture’s authors today—
Isaiah, the psalmist, Peter, and Mark—hasten to help us see
things in God’s terms, not ours. They want us to know that
we can never truly be exiled from God, or from God-among-us, since we know that when the faithful are
gathered, Christ has come into their midst. Instead, we are encouraged today to do what we can from our end to shorten the time of our exile: to repent of our sins, to return
our lives to the Lord, to live
as people who seek the coming day of the Lord, when
“kindness and truth shall
meet; justice and peace shall
kiss” (Psalm 85:10).

Tanto Isaías como Pedro tenían la tarea de consolar y
animar a sus comunidades durante épocas de exilio. El de
los israelitas era un exilio geográfico, apartados de Israel;
para ellos, en efecto, era lo mismo que estar exilados de su
Dios. Los primeros cristianos, seguido de la Resurrección,
anticipaban una vuelta inmediata de Cristo en su gloria;
también ellos se sentían “en exilio” cuando la demora de la
Segunda Venida se hacía cada vez más larga. Todos los
cuatro autores de las Escrituras de hoy Isaías, el salmista,
Pedro y Marcos se apresuran a ayudarnos a ver las cosas
desde el punto de vista de Dios, no el nuestro. Ellos quieren
que sepamos que en realidad nunca podemos estar exilados
de Dios, o de Dios-entre-nosotros, ya que sabemos que
cuando se congregan los fieles, Cristo está presente en
medio de ellos. En vez, se nos anima hoy a hacer lo que
podamos de nuestra parte, para
acortar el tiempo del exilio: arrepentirnos de nuestros pecados,
volver nuestra vida al Señor, vivir
como personas que buscan la
llegada del día del Señor, cuando
“La misericordia y la fidelidad se
encuentran, la justicia y la paz se
besan” (Salmo 85 [84]:11).

The Bethlehem Christian Families
(The Holy Land)
On December 20th & 21st, 2014 the Bethlehem Christian Families will be selling
their hand carved religious articles made of
olive wood. The sale of these precious articles supports their Church Mission which is
to maintain the roots and the existence of
the Christian Families who are struggling to
remain in Bethlehem.
At least Ninety percent of the funds
raised through these sales go directly to
Christians living in the Bethlehem area. The
proceeds will create more work which will
help them to survive and stay in the Holy
Land since they have no other source of income and are dependent on the olive wood
industry. Thank you for your support and
Saint Mary's is kicking off it's Youth Ministry with Faith-FunFood! Come join us on December 7th as we prepare during Advent: "Frozen- Let it Go"at 3:30 in the conference center. We

December 7, 2014
(Sunday Dec. 7th Mass is the Sunday obligation solely & Monday is a Holy Day of Obligation apart from Sunday)
(Excerpts from the CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH second edition)
1389—“The precept of participating in the Mass is satisfied by assistance at a Mass which is
celebrated anywhere in a Catholic rite on the holy day.”
2181—The Sunday Eucharist is the foundation and confirmation of all Christian practice. For this
reason the faithful are obliged to participate in the Eucharist on days of obligation, unless excused
for a serious reason (for example, illness, the care of infants) or dispensed by their own pastor. 119
Those who deliberately fail in this obligation commit a grave sin.
2182—Participation in the communal celebration of the Sunday Eucharist is a testimony of belonging and of being faithful to Christ
and to his Church. The faithful give witness to this by their communion in faith and charity. Together they testify to God’s holiness
and their hope of salvation. They strengthen one another under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
The Immaculate Conception—It’s important to understand what the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception is and what it is not.
Some people think the term refers to Christ’s conception in Mary’s womb without the intervention of a human father; but that is the
Virgin Birth. Others think the Immaculate Conception means Mary was conceived "by the power of the Holy Spirit," in the way Jesus
was, but that, too, is incorrect. The Immaculate Conception means that Mary, whose conception was brought about the normal way,
was conceived without original sin or its stain—that’s what "immaculate" means: without stain. The essence of original sin consists in
the deprivation of sanctifying grace, and its stain is a corrupt nature. Mary was preserved from these defects by God’s grace; from
the first instant of her existence she was in the state of sanctifying grace and was free from the corrupt nature original sin
brings. When discussing the Immaculate Conception, an implicit reference may be found in the angel’s greeting to Mary. The angel
Gabriel said, "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you" (Luke 1:28). The phrase "full of grace" is a translation of the Greek
word kecharitomene. It therefore expresses a characteristic quality of Mary. (excerpts from Catholic Answers)

¡Un día de precepto para todos los católicos!
Lunes 8 de diciembre 2014
(Domingo 07 de diciembre Misa es el precepto dominical y exclusivamente y El lunes es un día de precepto, aparte del domingo)
(Extractos del CATECISMO DE LA IGLESIA CATÓLICA segunda edición)
1389—"El precepto de participar en la Misa es por la asistencia a la misa que se celebra en cualquier
parte del rito católico en el día santo."
2181—La Eucaristía dominical es el fundamento y la confirmación de toda la práctica cristiana. Por
esta razón, los fieles están obligados a participar en la Eucaristía los días de precepto, a no ser excusados por una razón seria (por ejemplo, enfermedad, el cuidado de los recién nacidos) o dispensa
por su propio pastor. 119 Los que deliberadamente falla en esta obligación cometen un pecado grave.
2182—La participación en la celebración comunitaria de la Eucaristía dominical es un testimonio de pertenencia y de fidelidad a
Cristo a su Iglesia. Los fieles dan testimonio de esto a su comunión en la fe y en la caridad. Juntos dan testimonio de la santidad de
Dios y su esperanza de la salvación. Fortalecen el uno al otro bajo la guía del Espíritu Santo.
La Inmaculada Concepción—Es importante entender lo que la doctrina de la Inmaculada Concepción es y lo que no lo es. Algunas
personas piensan que el término se refiere a la concepción de Cristo en el vientre de María sin la intervención de un padre humano;
pero que es el nacimiento virginal. Otros piensan que la Inmaculada Concepción significa María fue concebida "por el poder del Espíritu Santo", en la manera en que Jesús era, sino que, también, es incorrecta. La Inmaculada Concepción significa que María, cuya
concepción se produjo de la forma habitual, fue concebida sin pecado original o su mancha-que es lo que "inmaculada" significa: sin
mancha. La esencia del pecado original consiste en la privación de la gracia santificante, y su mancha es una naturaleza corrupta.
María fue preservada de estos defectos por la gracia de Dios; desde el primer instante de su existencia se encontraba en estado de
gracia santificante y estaba libre de la naturaleza corrupta pecado original trae.
Cuando se habla de la Inmaculada Concepción, una referencia implícita se puede encontrar en el saludo del ángel a María. El ángel
Gabriel le dijo: "Alégrate, llena de gracia, el Señor está contigo" (Lucas 1:28). La frase "llena de gracia" es una traducción de la palabra griega kecharitomene. Por lo tanto, expresa una cualidad característica de María. (extractos de Catholic Answers)
TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION—Have you seen Antiques Roadshow on television? People bring attic treasures to experts
for appraisal and possible cash. Catholic attics, or maybe Grandma’s wall, often hold a “sick call crucifix.” It is a curiously bulky
crucifix hiding a sliding panel and a secret compartment. Two tiny candles, a squeeze bottle of holy water, a stringy purple
mini stole, a tube of prayers, and some cotton balls are all hidden inside. The cross folds up to form a mini altar that can be
propped up by a sick person’s bed. All that is needed is a priest with the oil of the sick and Holy Communion. Forty years ago,
when these crosses enjoyed great popularity, the sacrament of the sick was often an encounter between priest and sick person alone,
and often only in a last crisis of illness.
Gradually, we are reclaiming the sacrament of anointing from this minimal, hidden expression. It is celebrated more richly and
more often, even in the Sunday assembly, at every stage of illness and across a wide range of human suffering. The “sick call crucifix” is not a tradition, it is a curiosity from another time, but it reminds us of true tradition: we are a people who care for our sick,
who accompany them in faith, and who sustain them with an experience of Christ’s presence.

Did You Know?
Who should report child abuse?
Priests, deacons, school faculty and administrators and other staff members in our parishes and schools have been designated as
mandated reporters under California law. When one of these persons receives information leading to a “reasonable suspicion”
that a child is being abused or neglected, he or she must make a report to the appropriate child protection or law enforcement
agency. For Information on Responding to an Allegation of Suspected Child Abuse visit:
¿Usted Sabia?
¿Quiénes deben reportar abuso infantil?
Bajo la ley del estado de California, todos los sacerdotes, diáconos, profesores, administradores y empleados de nuestras parroquias y escuelas tienen la obligación de reportar abusos. Cuando alguna de estas personas recibe cualquier información que
lleve a una “sospecha razonable” de que un menor puede ser una víctima de abuso o negligencia, tiene la obligación de hacer un
reporte ya sea a las autoridades civiles o a agencias de protección de niños. Para más información sobre cómo responder a una
alegación o sospecha de abuso de niños, visitar
