Dedication of the Lateran Basilica
32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
Nov. 9, 2014
From the Pastor’s Desk
Dear Friends,
Saturday
In this month of November we think more of the
communion of saints and how we are united by faith
to those who have gone before us. We can pray for
them and they for us. They continue to be witnesses to
us. One of these is Monsignor Lorenzo Albacete, a
noted priest, theologian, lecturer, author and television
personality, who died on October 24, 2014.
Sunday
In a letter, Fr. Julian Carron described Msgr. Albacete
in this way: “Therefore, Pope Francis’ words from
Evangelii Gaudium are befitting our dearest Lorenzo:
‘Christians have the duty to proclaim the Gospel
without excluding anyone, not as one who imposes a
new obligation, but rather as one who shares a joy,
points out a beautiful horizon, offers a desirable
banquet. The Church does not grow by proselytism
but ‘by attraction.’” He was undoubtedly so
captivating that he immediately became friends with
anyone he met, because he was showing the beauty
and usefulness of faith for facing life’s needs.”
Albacete was friends with Pope John Paul II. In 1997
he was part of a PBS documentary. Following is an
excerpt of "John Paul II: The Millennial Pope: "... The
obstacles to faith, among them perhaps the most
serious one is the loss of the capacity to encounter or
to experience reality that you know doesn't originate

I feel very blessed to have known Msgr. Albacete over
these past 20 years. He was instrumental in beginning
and leading many of my priest retreats as well as many
other symposiums and talks, retreats and days of
reflection. As many who were able to be in his
presence I was struck by not just his intelligence and
humor, but by his profound love of Christ. He was
completely taken by one thing only: the recognition of
the Mystery in our midst. His last words were all
about the Incarnation and that Jesus is coming. I felt a
tremendous friendship with him the year my friend Fr.
Bill Finch died. Lorenzo simply looked at me with the
deep understanding of the pain but also faith in
Someone else. He was also experiencing in his life
great suffering, a share in the Cross. He helped me
embrace mine.

Fr. Lee’s Letter (continued from pg. 1):
inside of you…..Do we believe that something new can
exist? The Pope is convinced that the biggest threat not
only to faith but to human survival at the end of this
age and the beginning of the new one is the loss of that
ability to experience an encounter with the really and
truly other and thus establish a dialogue, establish
solidarity, because that is the key phrase to him. The
human being cannot be free, cannot live fully if it is not
in solidarity with others. Inability to grasp otherness is
to him not only the biggest obstacle to faith but really
the biggest obstacle to human life and human survival.
That is why in the end he'll have to say, "Look, it is
only through an encounter with another that you can
have faith." In the end what the Pope offers or
proclaims is the possibility of encountering the human
face of the mystery called God which he believes is the
face of Jesus Christ. ..."
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/pop
e/interviews/albacete.html
For me, Msgr. Albacete was that kind of encounter.
Thank you Lorenzo! His last words were, “You see,
Jesus always comes. He wants to be with us.” Thank
you for showing us the joy of his presence.

supporting our local service agencies in their mission of
comfort and healing. Sales begin Nov. 15th!

SECCIÓN EN ESPAÑOL
DEDICACION DE LA BASILICA DE LETRAN (Ciclo A)
9 de noviembre del 2014
Diversas culturas hispanas, pero «Un solo Señor, una sola fe» (Cf. Ef 4,5).
DE NUESTRO PARROCO
(Padre Lee Fangmeyer)
Evangelio de San Juan 2, 13-22
(Reflexión del Padre Rommel Padilla)
Queridos amigos:
En este mes de noviembre pensamos más en la comunión de los
santos y en cómo estamos unidos por la fe con aquellos que se nos
adelantaron. Nosotros rezamos por ellos y ellos por nosotros. Nos
siguen dando testimonio. Uno de ellos es monseñor Lorenzo
Albacete, un connotado sacerdote, teólogo, conferencista, autor y
personalidad de la TV, quien falleció el 24 de octubre del 2014.
Fue una bendición para mí conocer a monseñor Albacete durante
los pasados 20 años. Fui muy valioso en iniciar y guiar muchos de
mis retiros sacerdotales como también simposios, charlas y días de
reflexión. Al igual que muchos otros que disfrutaron de su
presencia, me impactó no solamente su inteligencia y buen humor
sino también su profundo amor por Cristo. Estaba muy seguro de
una cosa: saber que el misterio estaba entre nosotros. Sus últimas
palabras respecto a la encarnación y a la venida de Jesús. Sentí una
amistad tremenda el año que mi amigo Bill Finch falleció. Lorenzo
me miró con la comprensión profunda del dolor pero también de la
fe en Alguien más. Él también estaba pasando por un gran
sufrimiento en su vida, un compartir de la cruz. Me ayudó a llevar
mi cruz.
En una carta, el padre Carron describió a monseñor Albacete así:
“En consecuencia, las palabras del papa Francisco del Evangelii
Gaudium se ajustan a nuestro querido amigo Lorenzo: ’los
cristianos tienen la obligación de proclamar el evangelio sin excluir
a nadie, no como quien impone una obligación, sino como quien
comparte un gozo, como quien señala un hermoso horizonte, como
quien ofrece un suculento banquete. La iglesia no crece por el
proselitismo sino ‘por atracción’.” Indudablemente fue tan
cautivante que se hacía amigo con todos los que conocía, mostraba
así la belleza y la utilidad de la fe para encarar las necesidades de la
vida.
Monseñor Albacete fue amigo del papa Juan Pablo II. En 1997 fue
parte de un documental de PBS. A continuación un extracto de
“Juan Pablo II: el Papa del milenio”: Uno de los obstáculos contra
la fe, talvez el más serio es la pérdida de la capacidad de encontrar
o experimentar que la realidad que usted conoce no proviene de su
propio interior… ¿Creemos que puede existir algo nuevo? El Papa
está convencido de que la mayor amenaza no solamente contra la fe
sino contra la supervivencia humana al final de esta era y al inicio
de una nueva era es la pérdida de la capacidad de experimentar un
encuentro con la realidad y con el verdadero otro; y poder
establecer un diálogo, una solidaridad, porque esa es la frase clave
para él. El ser humano no puede ser libre, no puede vivir
plenamente sino es en solidaridad con otros. La incapacidad de
aceptar a otros es el mayor obstáculo no solamente contra la fe sino
el mayor obstáculo contra la vida y la supervivencia humana. Por
eso al final se tendrá que decir: “Miren, solamente a través de un
encuentro con otro se puede tener fe.” Al final lo que el Papa
ofrece o proclama es la posibilidad de encontrarse la cara humana
del misterio llamado Dios que él cree es la cara de Cristo Jesús…”
En la Ciudad de Roma, Italia hay 4 basílicas mayores, que están
caracterizadas por ser sus puertas santas y por tener un altar papal, éstas
son: 1. La Basílica de San Pedro Apóstol que se encuentra
geográficamente dentro de la Ciudad del Vaticano. 2. La Basílica de
San Pablo Apóstol Extramuros. 3. La Basílica de Santa María Mayor.
4. La Archibasílica de San Juan de Letrán.
La Archibasílica de San Juan de Letrán es la basílica del Papa y es la
Madre Basílica de todas las otras iglesias católicas hijas que se
encuentran alrededor de la tierra. El Papa es el obispo de Roma. Todos
los obispos de la Iglesia Católica y aquellos obispos de las Iglesias que
están en comunión con la nuestra, tienen la misma dignidad episcopal,
pero por ser el Papa el obispo de Roma, tiene la primacía sobre toda la
Iglesia Católica Universal. A pesar de que hay una sola dignidad
episcopal, existe una diferencia fundamental entre ser obispo de Roma
y ser obispo de cualquier otra diócesis del mundo y se refiere al
Ministerio Petrino. Los Apóstoles elegidos por Cristo fueron 12, pero
entre ellos, había uno que Cristo eligió para que sea la Cabeza del
grupo y ese es el Apóstol Pedro. En la Iglesia Católica subsiste la
Sucesión Apostólica, esto quiere decir, que los 12 Apóstoles
transmitieron sus poderes por voluntad de Cristo a otros hombres
nobles y de virtudes probadas que la Iglesia ha llamado obispos, por
consiguiente, se puede decir, que todos los obispos de la Iglesia
Católica son sucesores auténticos de los 12 Apóstoles, ninguna otra
Iglesia sobre la faz de la tierra tiene dicha sucesión. Sólo el Papa sucede
personalmente al Apóstol Pedro; todos los demás obispos de la Iglesia
Católica que de acuerdo al Anuario Pontificio del 13 de mayo del 2013
son 5.132, suceden a los demás 11 Apóstoles.
En Jerusalén se encontraba el templo Sagrado en donde se congregaban
todos los Judíos piadosos para hacer sus oraciones, dentro del templo
se encontraba el Arca de la Alianza, que contenía las Piedras Sagradas
en donde Dios mismo escribió los 10 mandamientos y se los entregó a
Moisés en el Monte Sinaí. Si la Palabra de Dios se encuentra guardada
dentro de un Tabernáculo eso quiere decir que el lugar es sagrado y
merece el total respeto de las personas que se acercan a él. Cada
persona piadosa que se acercaba a este lugar pedía con su corazón,
mediante la contemplación del Arca Sagrada, desear ver a Dios,
anhelaban desde sus más profundas convicciones estar cerca de ese
lugar Santísimo, no podemos olvidar que Jesucristo es Judío y va al
templo, y se encuentra que ese lugar sagrado está siendo desacralizado.
Lo verdaderamente valioso está siendo subvalorado; lo que merece
digno respeto está siendo indignamente irrespetado; el templo es el
lugar para la oración y no para hacer comercio ni ningún otro tipo de
negocio sucio, naturalmente la ira de Jesucristo se despierta porque la
intencionalidad para lo que fue hecho el templo se ha profanado. Yo
podría decir que Jesucristo presenció un tipo de sacrilegio al templo y
con su ira en contra de los comerciantes reparó la sacralidad de aquel
lugar santo. La casa de Dios nunca puede ser un mercado ni siquiera
una tienda de negocios mundanos.
San Pablo dice que el cuerpo humano es templo de Dios también. ¿Es
sagrado mi cuerpo? ¿Respeto mi cuerpo? ¿Honro mi cuerpo? ¿irrespeto
mi cuerpo? ¿Desacralizo mi cuerpo?. Surge una pregunta: ¿Cómo los
cristianos podemos sacralizar nuestros cuerpos que son templos del
Espíritu Santo? Vamos a sacralizar nuestro cuerpo siempre que
evitemos las fornicaciones, los adulterios, las mentiras, los robos, los
malos pensamientos, las envidias, las discordias, las rivalidades. Para
respetar nuestros cuerpos necesitamos siempre la gracia de Dios. La
vida de la gracia tiene un enemigo espiritual declarado que se llama
Satanás. El pecado viene del Diablo. El Diablo no es más poderoso que
Dios, pero el Diablo se vuelve Príncipe en nuestras vidas, cuando
nosotros renegamos de Dios. Si Dios dice que tu cuerpo es templo de
Dios, al final de los tiempos delante del juicio la pregunta será: ¿Qué
hiciste de tu cuerpo? ¿Qué hiciste con tu cuerpo?.

Para mí, monseñor Albacete fue ese tipo de encuentro.
Gracias Lorenzo! Sus últimas palabras fueron: “Ves, Jesús
siempre viene. Quiere estar con nosotros”. Gracias por
mostrarnos el gozo de su presencia.

Excerpt from Fr. Joe Breighner’s
More Reflections
Along A Country Road
“More Reflections Along A Country Road”
by Father Joe Breighner
“Minute Meditations for Everyday”
Good Example
The most effective way we share our scriptures, our understanding of the sacraments, our prayer life and
our image of God, is by how we live. As someone has profoundly put it, “People may not always believe
what you say, but they will always believe what you do.”
So our effort is to live as Jesus asked us to live when He gave the criteria for entering the kingdom of
God, “I was hungry and you fed me; thirsty and you gave me something to drink; naked and you clothed
me; in prison and you visited me; a stranger and you took me in”
Put simply, the best way to show our belief in God is through the sermon of our lives.
When we treat the least person the way we treat God, then we become believable and God
becomes visible.
