2 | MISSION SAN LUIS REY PARISH, Oceanside, California—December 20, 2015
Peace and all good! Here we are in the fourth
week of Advent. To all of you who are visiting this
Christmas season, welcome! Know that God loves
you very much and we are delighted to have you as
part of our parish family.
I hope you've had some time to participate in
some of our Advent activities such as the Feast of
the Immaculate Conception, December 8th, or in
our festive Triduum for Our Lady of Guadalupe. At
the moment we are celebrating Simbang Gabi and
Las Posadas. I'd like to say thank you to the parish
and mission staffs, and all our volunteers and ministers who have worked so hard to make these liturgies and celebrations possible. I think it's been a
very beautiful time of year.
I know as the holidays progress, all of us, including
myself, can become more busy than usual. Just trying to manage our normal day to day lives can be
stressful enough without all the additional activities
that Christmas brings: shopping for gifts, decorating
our homes, parties with family and friends, trying to
juggle money and budgets and time. If we aren't
careful, the peace and joy of the season can be lost
as we hurry from activity to activity. But I invite you
as I invite myself, to try to take time to reflect on the
deeper meaning of this season.
If you haven't had the Advent you would like to
have had at this point, don't lose hope. It's still not
too late. The point of Advent is to slow down and
spend some time in prayer with Jesus. We still have
another week of Advent. We have many beautiful
liturgies planned for Christmas and throughout the
season. I hope you find graced moments in your life
to participate and reflect on how we live our lives as
disciples of Jesus.
For all the priests, my Franciscan brothers, the
Parish and Mission staffs and ministers and volunteers, and the entire Catholic Community of San Luis
Rey, I am wishing you and your family a blessed and
happy Christmas.
Fr. David
The Jubilee Year of Mercy Dec. 8, 2015 through
Nov. 20, 2016 Motto:
“Merciful like the Father”
Pope Francis has
said that “Mercy is
the beating heart
of the Gospel,” and
so has proclaimed
December 8th
November 20th, 2016 as a Jubilee Year of Mercy.
Mission San Luis Rey is one of seven Churches
throughout the Diocese of San Diego designated as
Door of Mercy for pilgrims to visit during the
Jubilee. This Holy Door offers an opportunity for
anyone to travel through the Holy Door, in case they
cannot visit the one in Rome. The Holy Door
represents Christ, who is the door through which
we encounter God, the Father of Mercy.

December 20, 2015 - Fourth Sunday of Advent| 3
As we draw close to the Feast of
the Nativity, we hear the great
stewardship proclamation twice in
today’s second reading from the
Letter to the Hebrews: “Behold, I
come to do your will, O God!” Who
is this Jesus? Who are we that we
should follow him? Many want him
as a friend, a guide, a king, an advocate. We long to see the face of God. Jesus reveals the
nature of God, the servant sent to give us new life in
Him. Take time to ponder: Do we have the courage to
follow Jesus? To show others the face of God? To say to
the Lord: “Behold, I come to do your will?”
Join us at the Knight’s Chili Cook-off
on Saturday, January 9, 2015 from 6:009:00 p.m. in the St. Francis Hall. Tickets
are $5 suggested donation; includes:
Chili bowl and cornbread or taster set.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Parish Youth
Programs. Tickets on sale after Masses.
“Most people nowadays would
not consider love as related in
any way to truth. Love is seen as
an experience associated with the world of fleeting emotions, no longer with truth. But is this an adequate description of love? Love cannot be reduced to an ephemeral emotion. True, it engages our affectivity, but in order
to open it to the beloved and thus to blaze a trail leading
away from self-centeredness and towards another person, in order to build a lasting relationship; love aims at
union with the beloved. Here we begin to see how love
requires truth. Only to the extent that love is grounded in
truth can it endure over time, can it transcend the passing moment and be sufficiently solid to sustain a shared
journey. If love is not tied to truth, it falls prey to fickle
emotions and cannot stand the test of time. True love,
on the other hand, unifies all the elements of our person
and becomes a new light pointing the way to a great and
fulfilled life. Without truth, love is incapable of establishing a firm bond; it cannot liberate our isolated ego or redeem it from the fleeting moment in order to create life
and bear fruit.”
― Lumen Fidei: The Light of Faith
Advent is a time for new understanding, for putting
different pieces of God’s revelation together to see
the Divine Plan more clearly. Here are some aids for
the season and that discernment:
Advent Light- Stephen Binz [264.1Bin] provides 30
short reflections for the season.
A Child in Winter [Advent, Christmas and Epiphany
with Caryll Houselander] - Thomas Hoffman
[264.1Hof] shares insight and inspiration for the seasons before, during and after Christmas.
Biblical Mediations for Advent and the Christmas Season- Carroll Stuhlmueller, CP [264.1Stu];
The Vigil [Keeping Watch in the season of Christ’s
coming] - Wendy Wright [264.1Wri] offers scripture
and personal reflections for this season of Hope.
Lupe Rios Radio Interview
Lupe’s radio interview will be broadcast on Salt and
Light Radio Hour with host Deacon Pedro Guevara
Mann at www.saltandlighttv.org/radio or in various locations through AM/FM radio and on Sirius XM129.
Lupe will discuss his music, work at Mission San Luis
Rey Parish and his CD: Lupe Rios - Songs of Advent and
I wish all my friends at San Luis Rey a wonderful Christmas and God’s many blessings throughout the New Year.
I am 101-years-old now and well taken care of and not
completely helpless. I still walk with the help of a walker
to meals and get around, and enjoy playing cards and
bingo. It is very hard for me to write cards and letters, so
I send you this general greeting. You are in my thoughts
and prayers. Sr. Gladys Lowe, C.PP.S.

December 20, 2015 - Fourth Sunday of Advent| 7
¡Paz y todo bien! Aquí estamos en la cuarta semana
de Adviento. A todos los que nos visitan en esta temporada de Navidad, ¡bienvenidos! Sepan que Dios los
ama mucho y estamos encantados de tenerlos como
parte de nuestra familia parroquial.
Espero que hayas tenido un tiempo para participar
en algunas de nuestras actividades de Adviento, como
la Fiesta de la Inmaculada Concepción el 8 de diciembre, o en nuestro Triduo festivo de Nuestra Señora de
Guadalupe. Por el momento estamos celebrando Simbang Gabi y Las Posadas. Me gustaría dar las gracias al
personal de la parroquial y de la misión, y a todos
nuestros voluntarios y ministros que han trabajado tan
duro para hacer que estas liturgias y celebraciones
fueran posible. Creo que ha sido una muy hermosa
época del año.
Sé que al progreso de los días festivos, todos nosotros, incluyéndome a mi, podemos llegar a estar más
ocupados que de costumbre. Tratando de manejar
nuestras vidas día a día puede ser bastante estresante
sin todas las actividades adicionales que trae la Navidad: las compras de los regalos, la decoración de nuestros hogares, fiestas con familiares y amigos, tratando
de hacer malabares con el dinero, los presupuestos y
el tiempo. Si no tenemos cuidado, la paz y la alegría de
la temporada se pueden perder al apresurarnos de
una actividad a otra. Así que te invito como a mí mismo, a tratar de tomar tiempo para reflexionar sobre el
sentido profundo de esta temporada.
Si tu no has tenido el Adviento que te gustaría haber
tenido a este punto, no pierdas la esperanza. Todavía
no es demasiado tarde. El punto del Adviento es reducir la velocidad y pasar algún tiempo en oración con
Jesús. Aún tenemos una semana más de Adviento. Tenemos muchas liturgias hermosas previstas para la
Navidad y a lo largo de la temporada. Espero que encuentres momentos de gracia en tu vida para participar y reflexionar sobre la forma en que vivimos nuestras vidas como discípulos de Jesús.
Para todos los sacerdotes, mis hermanos Franciscanos, el personal de la Parroquia y de la Misión y los
ministros y voluntarios, y toda la Comunidad Católica
de San Luis Rey, les deseo a todos ustedes y a su familia una Navidad bendecida y feliz.
Padre David Gaa, OFM
Año Jubilar de la Misericordia
diciembre 8, 2015 a noviembre 20, 2016
Lema: "Misericordioso como el Padre"
El papa Francisco ha
dicho que
"La misericordia es el
corazón palpitante del
Evangelio ",
y ha proclamado el
8 de diciembre al 20 de
noviembre 2016 como
Año Jubilar de la Misericordia.
La Misión San Luis Rey ha sido designada como una de
las siete iglesias en la Diócesis de San Diego que abrió
una Puerta de la Misericordia para que peregrinos la visiten durante el Jubileo. Esta Puerta Santa ofrece una
oportunidad para que cualquiera pueda viajar a través de
la Puerta Santa, en caso de que no pueden visitar a la de
Roma. La Puerta Santa representa a Cristo, que es la
puerta por donde nos encontramos con Dios, el Padre de
la Misericordia.
El Sacramento de Reconciliación que toma lugar los
sábado reanudará el sábado 9 de enero del 2016, de 9:00
-10:00 a.m. Mientras tanto, te sugerimos que asistas a
uno de las Reconciliaciones Comunales que se anuncian
en la última página del boletín.
Las oficinas y el edificio parroquial estarán CERRADOS
a partir del 24 de diciembre al mediodía hasta el sábado,
2 de enero del 2016. Si tienen una emergencia, como la
Unción de los Enfermos o para hacer arreglos de un Funeral durante este tiempo de cierre, por favor comuníquense a nuestra LÍNEA DE EMERGENCIAS al 760-5833393.
El Departamento de Asuntos
Sociales necesita donaciones de
ropa de invierno: abrigos, calcetines, guantes y cobijas. Si tienen
algunos artículos extras que puedan donar, por favor pasen por la
oficina entre 8:00 a.m. a 4:00 p.m.
