A sense of urgency is reflected in all of today’s
readings. Jonah warns the Ninevites, “Forty days more and
Nineveh shall be destroyed.” Paul reminds the Corinthians
that “time is running out.” Jesus proclaims that “this is the
time of fulfillment.” There is no denying that we humans
tend to respond more readily to an urgent request; we
seem to be much more motivated by something that must
be done right now. This tendency makes it all too easy to
put off less urgent things: “Oh, we’ve got time for that
For the people in Jonah’s day, for the people of
Jesus’ time and Paul’s time, the end was believed to be
imminent. The words of the prophets and reformers
frequently tried to evoke a sense of urgency.
We don’t know, of course, how much time we have as
individuals or as nations to reform our ways, but it’s safe
to say that there’s less time left today than there was
yesterday. Today’s readings may be inviting us to revise
our priorities.
Jesus’ urgent message to the people of Galilee
contains two important declarative statements. The
command to “repent” is commonly heard. Far less
common is a command that requires the hearer to have
faith. Yet Jesus says, “Believe in the gospel” (Mark 1:15).
This is not a request or a suggestion. He does not say, “I
hope you can believe” or “Would you consider
believing?” Baptized Christians, believers by definition,
are to live their lives as if their beliefs mattered. That is
why we must repent as well as believe. Whatever our
calling in life, our families, neighbors, friends, and
co-workers should all be able to tell that we believe in the
gospel by the way we live the gospel. Time is too short to
do otherwise.
Today’s Readings: Jonah 3:1–5, 10; Psalm 25:4–9; 1 Corinthians
7:29–31; Mark 1:14–20

The kingdom of God is at hand.
Repent, and believe in the gospel.
— Mark 1:15
If one thing is certain in life it is
probably this. We all make mistakes.
We all make choices that are wrong for
us. We all have a need to repent and
change our ways. The Scriptures are
full of the call to repent and to believe. But the other
thing that is even more important is that God is always
full of mercy and forgiveness. Furthermore, when we
receive God’s mercy and engage his kindness and
love, healing and new life always come to us. It is no
surprise that the very first words out of Jesus’ mouth
after he is baptized in the Jordan are: "This is the time
of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent,
and believe in the gospel." In these words the healing
and new life are even included and are very evident.
Repenting and believing will bring about awareness
and participation in this time of fulfillment. The kingdom
of God will bring fulfillment NOW!

(Introduction to the 3rd Edition of the Roman Missal, section
2, The Different Elements of the Mass) #47 The Entrance -
When the people are gathered, and as the Priest enters
with the Deacon and ministers, the Entrance Chant
begins. Its purpose is to open the celebration, foster the
unity of those who have been gathered, introduce their
thoughts to the mystery of the liturgical time or festivity,
and accompany the procession of the Priest and ministers.
If there is no singing at the Entrance, the antiphon given
in the Missal is recited either by the faithful, or by some
of them, or by a reader; otherwise, it is recited by the
Priest himself, who may even adapt it as an introductory
explanation. (United States Conference of Bishop site:

then to ’General Instruction of the Roman Missal GIRM)
We formally close our Together in Mission 2011 before we
begin in February the 2012 pledges. This is an annual campaign
that supports our local missions, that is, the churches and
schools that cannot exist without some assistance. Catholics are
always supportive of missions. We reach out across the globe
to give prayerful and monetary assistance to missions in many
difference countries because we want to help out brothers and
sisters everywhere to grow in faith. Our local missions surround
us. Our own school receives assistance and is, in some sense,
one of our mission schools. Your generous pledges make a
huge difference in the opportunity for our faith to grow and
deepen for so many fellow Catholics. Thank you!

The tickets for the “250 Club” are now being sold at the

Tercer Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
Si hay algo cierto en la vida es
probablemente esto. Todos cometemos
errores. Todos tomamos decisiones
evivocadas. Todos tenemos la necesidad de arrepentirnos y
cambiar nuestos caminos. Las Escrituras están llenas del
llamado al arrepentimiento y a creer. Pero algo más
importante es que Dios siempre está lleno de misericordia y
perdón. Aún más, Cuando recibimos la misericordia de Dios
y tomamos toda su bondad y su amor, siempre llega a
nosotros la sanación y una nueva vida. No nos tome por
sorpresa el hecho de que las primeras palabras de boca de
Jesús después de su bautizo en el Jordán son: ”Se ha
cumplido el tiempo y el Reino de Dios ya está cerca.
Arrepiéntanse y crean en el Evangelio”. En el context de
estas palabras la sanación y la nueva vida son incluidas y
muy evidentes. El arrepentimiento y el creer traerá consigo
la conciencia y la participación en este tiempo de
cumplimiento. El Reino de Dios traerá la realización AHORA!
Padre Perry Leiker
Antes de dar principio al compromiso del 2012 de Unidos
en Misión se da por terminada formalmente la campaña
del 2011. Esta es una campaña que apoya nuestras
misiones locales, como lo son las Iglesias y escuelas que
no pudieran existir sin nuestra ayuda. Llegamos a través
del mundo por medio de nuestras oraciones y nuestra
ayuda monetaria a las misiones en muchos países porque
queremos que todos nuestros hermanos y hermanas
crezcan en la fe. Las misiones locales nos rodean. Nuestra
propia escuela recibe ayuda y es en cierto sentido, una de
nuestras escuelas misioneras. Sus compromisos generosos
hacen una gran diferencia en la oportunidad de muchos
Católicos para que puedan crecer y profundizar en su fe.

The businesses that advertise in our Sunday Bulletin are the
reason we have a bulletin. Their ads pay for the cost of the
bulletin. In order to keep our advertisers it is important for
them to know that their advertising helps their businesses.
During January and February, we ask everyone to check out
the advertisers and if you enter their establishments, could you
go out of your way to tell the owners or managers that you
saw their ad in our Sunday bulletin. A small effort on the part
of each of us can make an important contribution towards
keeping and improving our bulletin!
