The Pastor’s RANT…
Jesus is not on the Ballot
Over these past few weeks, I have watched the television airwaves filled with politics and election matters
and I have come to a conclusion…JESUS IS NOT ON
THE BALLOT. I wish Jesus was on the ballot and I
hope I would vote for Him. Yet, I am confident He
would not win the election. Why? ...because Jesus is
not a politician. He tells us what we need to hear; not
what we want to hear. He calls out SIN. He challenges
us to LOVE; even our ENEMIES. He uses words and
formula to lose an election. These words would upset
the average voter, you and me. If Jesus had just multiplied loaves and fishes, healed and raised people from
the dead and done what people wanted Him to do and
avoided talking about sin, He would have set Himself
up to win any election. But, He didn’t. He proclaimed
the Kingdom of God, He challenged the values of the
world, He died on the Cross by showing us what genuine love is all about.
Many people are desperately worried about the election results…I am not among them. Oh, I have my
preferences! And of course, people should pray and
discern and bring their Catholic values into the voting
booth AND VOTE. It does make a difference in shaping our world.
But, regardless of who wins and what measures are
passed, there is one undeniable fact…OUR SALVATION IS NOT ON THE BALLOT. Jesus has already
won the victory over sin and death. Our task is to be
faithful to Him…to carry on proclaiming His message,
living the values of His Kingdom, challenging the values of this world. The end of the story (GOD WINS)
doesn’t change because of an election. So, on election
day, I will look for Jesus on the ballot and will not find
Him. Then, I will go to Mass and He will be there…
continuing to challenge me about my sins, loving me
with an authentic love, and I will feel a peace that no
election can give me. I hope you do the same.

News & Notes
RCIA: An Invitation for Everyone
to Community in Christ.
We are beginning a new “year round RCIA process”. If you are
interested you are invited to join with us at 10am in the parish
office. The RCIA’s invitation is for those individuals who have not
been baptized and wish to enter into a relationship with Jesus
Christ in the Roman Catholic Faith Community. The invitation is
for those from other Christian Faith communities who wish to
become members of the Roman Catholic Church. Catholics who
have not completed the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist will find the invitation is for them to complete those sacraments. Catholics who have not been active in their faith and wish
to return to an active sacramental relationship with the faith community will find the RCIA a place to have that journey. For more
information write Bill Bischoff at [email protected] or call
the parish office. The RCIA schedule has been adjusted for the
summer. The classes will be August 7th & 21st with weekly classes resuming Sunday September 11th.
All Young Adults (ages 18-39)
are welcome to join our weekly
gatherings. Our meetings are on
Wednesdays 6:30PM – 8:30PM.
Our activities include Bible Studies, Faith Sharing, Fellowship,
Service and much more! Please
email Dorinamae at
[email protected] with any questions about our
events. To be added to our email list, simply text
’SAINTJOSEPHYA’ to 22828 and you will be in the loop as to
when and where we will be for the week. We’re also on Facebook and Instagram! We look forward to meeting you very
soon! The 5:15PM Sunday Mass is our official YOUNG ADULT
MASS! Please join us for worship! We’re also looking for Liturgical Ministers so if you’re interested, contact Dorinamae!
Confirmation for Teens
Registration ~ TODAY
Our Confirmation program is two years. The program is designed to help our teens to come to a deeper understanding
of how the Holy Spirit works in their lives and in the life of the
Social Ministry
Back to School Supplies
Our local Catholic Schools have very limited budgets for supplies and materials. As a parish, we support local Catholic education by collecting school supplies for neighborhood Catholic
Schools. We will be collecting supplies after Masses this weekend and next. They greatly appreciated our past contributions.
Please drop off all items on the side of the altar after each
Mass. Thank you for your generosity.

Año Jubilar de la Misericordia
Decimonoveno Domingo
del Tiempo Ordinario
En la parábola del domingo
pasado del “Rico Insensato”
escuchamos una razón de
peso para hacer lo que es
correcto aquí y ahora
“‘¡Insensato!’ Esta misma
noche vas a morir” (Lucas
12:20). Hoy Jesús nos advierte “estén preparados,
porque a la hora en que menos lo piensen vendrá el Hijo
del hombre” (12:40). Aunque no sabemos cuando nuestro
Maestro vendrá, lo que sí sabemos es lo que nuestro
Maestro espera encontrar. Jesús espera que estemos
vigilantes (12:37) y diligentes (12:42) en nuestro trabajo
por el Reino, pero también llenos con misericordia reverente hacia nuestros prójimos y hacia nosotros mismos.
Con confianza, la advertencia de Jesús de no beber y
maltratar a los demás (12:45) no parece que se siga fielmente. Pero justo ahora qué cambios necesito hacer para
que las personas fuera de “la casa del amo” quieran venir
adentro para sentir el consuelo de la sanación de la misericordia de Jesús en la compasión de los discípulos de
Jesús hoy en día
Lecturas de Hoy
Primera lectura —
Tus antepasados esperaron con fe y valor el
cumplimiento de las promesas de Dios
Sabiduría 18:6-9
Salmo —
Dichoso el pueblo escogido por Dios
Salmo 33 [32]
Segunda lectura —
A causa de la fidelidad al llamado de Dios, los descendientes de Abraham son tan numerosos como las estrellas
Hebreos 11:1-2, 8-19 [1-2, 8-12]
Estén alerta y preparados porque no saben ni el día ni la
hora en que el Hijo del hombre aparecerá

Faith Formation
Faith Formation is a vital element of every Catholic
parish. The role of parish faith formation is to provide
organized and systematic approach to the instruction
and practice of the faith for everyone in the parish
community. The goal of this formation is to give each
member an understanding of their faith so they can
evangelize and witness to the faith in the greater secular community. The programs offered at Saint Joseph’s Cathedral parish reflect the diversity of an urban Southern California parish.
In addition to the weekly catechetical program special
events and speakers are presented throughout the
parish’s pastoral year.
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)
RCIA an Invitation for everyone
to Community in Christ.
At St. Joseph Cathedral’s parish community we believe that everyone has an invitation to join the RCIA
process. The RCIA’s invitation is for those individuals who have not been baptized and wish to enter into
a relationship with Jesus Christ in the Roman Catholic
Faith Community. The invitation is for those from
other Christian Faith communities who wish to become members of the Roman Catholic Church.
Catholics who have not completed the sacraments of
Confirmation and Eucharist will find the invitation is
for them to complete those sacraments. Catholics
who have not been active in their faith and wish to
return to an active sacramental relationship with the
faith community will find the RCIA a place to have
that journey. Also, Catholics who wish to renew their
faith by refreshing their knowledge of the church’s
teaching are most welcome.
Evangelization and Catechesis are the hallmarks of the
RCIA at St. Joseph Cathedral. For more information
write Bill Bischoff at [email protected] or call
the Parish Office.

Formación en la Fe
El propósito de la formación de fe es hacer lo que
Cristo dijo a sus apóstoles. Esto es proclamar el evangelio y llevar al pueblo a una comunión con Dios.
Todos los Católicos tienen la responsabilidad y el derecho de participar en la misión catequética de la Iglesia por virtud de su Bautizo; esto es un proceso de
vida, aprender y ensenar a ortos la fe. La Vida de la
Iglesia es catequética y es el responder a necesidades
de los que son catequizados.
Rito de Iniciación Cristiana de Adultos
La comunidad parroquiana de Catedral de San José
extiende una invitación a todos al proceso de RICA.
La invitación es para Adultos que nunca han sido
bautizados y quisieran establecer una relación con
Jesucristo en la Comunidad Cristiana Católica Romana.
De igual manera la invitación es para Adultos de otras
comunidades Cristianas que quisieran ser miembro
de la Iglesia Católica Romana.
Católicos que aun no completan el Sacramento de
Confirmación y Primera Comunión se les invita a que
reciban los Sacramentos. A Católicos que no han
sido activos en su fe y quisieran regresar a una fe activa sacramental encontraran que RICA los guiara de
nuevo a su Fe Católica Romana.
La evangelización y el Catequesis son bases fundamentales en el programa de RICA en Catedral de
San José. Para mas información, se puede comunicar
con Alicia Gutiérrez al (619)239-0229 o [email protected]
Confirmación Para Adolescentes - El Sacramento de
la Confirmación es un trayecto de fe de dos anos.
Durante estos dos anos, es obligatorio que los adolescentes y sus familias participen en el Ministerio en
Preparación para la Confirmación. Las clases se llevan a cabo cada domingo de 11:40am a 1:30pm en el

(619)239-0229 o al correo electrónico [email protected] Se les invita a los padres que se
comuniquen dos (2) meses antes de la fecha bautismal que desean. Este anticipo permite programar la
sesión necesario de la formación sacramental para los
padres antes del bautismo del niño/niña y también
permite que los padrinos obtengan cartas del pastor
de su parroquia. Si usted es feligrés registrado en
Catedral de San José y necesita una carta de recomendación para poder ser padrino/madrina de bautismo en otra parroquia, por favor llame a la oficina.
A las parejas interesadas en celebrar el Sacramento
