Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time January 31, 2016 Faith, hope, and love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love. — 1 Corinthians 13:13 TODAY’S READINGS First Reading — God appoints Jeremiah as prophet to the nations (Jeremiah 1:4-5, 17-19). Psalm — I will sing of your salvation (Psalm 71). Second Reading — Love with its many facets is the most important of the virtues (1 Corinthians 12:31 — 13:13 [13:4-13]). Gospel — When Jesus claims his salvific mission is for all people, not just the Jews, he is expelled by the enraged members of the Nazarean synagogue (Luke 4:21-30).

THE GREAT HYMN TO LOVE It is doubtful that Saint Paul, when he sat down to write what we now know as the thirteenth chapter of First Corinthians, knew that he was penning what was to become one of the keystones of Christian ethics. In this brief passage, he set down ideals about love that have held fast through the centuries. Sometimes we may think that because these are ideals to which we aspire, we are excused from them in our daily living. But what Paul was writing was a letter to his friends, providing them with some sound advice about what it meant—and still means—to live in love, day by day, as a follower of Christ. We find in his words to his friends a broadening of the great commands of Jesus to love God and neighbor. Today we hear what this love must look like in our own actions, and how it ought to guide our relationships with others. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION For the first four centuries or so, there seems not to have been a sense of marriage as a church institution. Christians followed civil law, which kept the wedding in a family setting. Bishops wanted people to be good citizens insofar as possible, and so they recognized the government’s role in marriage. In general, they expected Christians to know that marriage was good, that marriage to other Christians was best, and to take it easy on the wild wedding parties. They agreed that marriage was a divine institution, that Christ blessed it especially, and they loved referring to the miracle at the wedding feast of Cana. Still, even when Christianity became the official religion of the empire in 380, marriage remained a family matter. On wedding days people gathered in the bride’s house, where the father would “give her hand” to her husband, draping a garland of flowers over the couple. There were no official words to say, there was no blessing to be given. Everyone walked in procession to the bride’s new home for the concluding rites and the feast. In the Eastern Empire, it soon became customary to invite a priest or bishop to give a blessing at the meal or the day before. It was a nice thing to do, completely optional, but had a “photo-op” feel to it that was widely emulated. Before long, at least in the East, it looked as if the priest were joining the couple in marriage and blessing the union. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

This is the day when many Catholics participate in the tradition of having their throats blessed. Why does the blessing of the throat take place on St. Blaise Day? St. Blaise, a physician and bishop, asked God to cure a child who was choking to death on a fish bone and the child’s life was saved. Thus, St. Blaise is the patron saint of healthy throats. The blessing of throats will take place during the 8:00 a.m. Morning Mass on Wednesday, February 3rd.

Be merciful, just as (also) your Father is merciful - Luke 6:36 YEAR OF MERCY BOOK CLUB 2016

ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI WOMEN’S PRAYER GROUP Praying the Psalms!! All are welcome Our Next Gathering will be on Feb.11TH and 26th We will gather in the hall after the 8:00 AM Mass

The Declaration of a jubilee year of mercy by Pope Francis is a spiritual demonstration by the worldwide Catholic Church of moving with the times. With the opening of the Holy Door at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome on 8th December, first time in the 21st century, the Pope called upon the entire Christian community to show a special measure of mercy and compassion to all humanity at a time when wanton immorality and senseless violence appears to have crossed all limits. Especially over the last year it has become clear that in different nations in different ways, the spiritual ideals that have traditionally united and bound together societies appears to be increasingly worn and spent. Therefore, the Holy Father’s call for mercy, and focus on forgiveness, reconciliation goes beyond a simple call for spiritual renewal. For more information about the Year of Mercy Book Club, please call Yvonne.

St. Francis of Assisi is currently seeking for a maintenance personnel. If you are interested in submitting your application, please call the parish office at (760) 564-1255.

Cuarto Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario 31 de Enero de 2016 Ahora tenemos estas tres virtudes: la fe, la esperanza, y el amor; pero el amor es la mayor de las tres. — 1 Corintios 13:13 LECTURAS DE HOY Primera lectura — Dios destina a Jeremías a ser profeta de las naciones (Jeremías 1:4-5, 17-19). Salmo — Señor, tú eres mi esperanza (Salmo 71 [70]). Segunda lectura — El amor con todas sus muchas facetas es la más importante de las virtudes (1 Corintios 12:31 — 13:13 [13:4-13]). Evangelio — Cuando Jesús reclama que su misión salvífica es para todos los pueblos, los miembros de la sinagoga de Nazaret enfurecidos lo echan fuera (Lucas 4:21-30). Salmo responsorial: Leccionario I © 1976, Comisión Episcopal de Pastoral Litúrgica de la Conferencia del Episcopado Mexicano. Usado con permiso. Todos los derechos reservados.

EL GRAN HIMNO AL AMOR Cabe dudar que, cuando san Pablo se sentó a escribir lo que ahora conocemos como el capítulo trece de la primera carta a los corintios, supiera que lo que estaba escribiendo se convertiría en una clave principal de la ética cristiana. En este breve pasaje, ha consignado ideales sobre el amor que se han mantenido firmes en el transcurso de los siglos. A veces pensamos que porque estos son sólo ideales a los que uno aspira, estamos libres de no practicarlos en nuestra vida diaria. Lo que Pablo estaba escribiendo era una carta a sus amigos, dándoles buenos consejos sobre lo que significaba –y todavía significa– vivir en el amor, día a día, en seguimiento de Cristo. Encontramos en las palabras a sus amigos una ampliación del gran mandamiento de Jesús de amar a Dios y al prójimo. Hoy en día escuchamos cómo este amor debe expresarse en nuestras acciones, y cómo debe regir nuestras relaciones con los demás. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE En muchos hogares latinos el tiempo de Navidad terminó el día dos de febrero con la levantada del Niño Dios en la fiesta de la Candelaria. Es interesante como el pueblo cristiano tiene un cierto afecto para Jesús en su aspecto de niño. Desde hace siglos con el evangelista Lucas y la virgen María la imaginación cristiana ha ido buscando al Divino Niño en el templo; con san Cristóbal lleva cargando al Niño Dios sobre los hombros mientras cruza el rió de la vida y san Antonio de Lisboa juega con el Niñito Jesús sobre un libro teológico mientras estudia la Palabra de Dios. Fueron los monjes cistercienses del siglo XII quienes primero desarrollaron esta devoción al Niño Jesús. En su afán por conocer mejor al Dios hecho humano entraban por medio de la meditación imaginativa en los cuatro evangelios. Esta meditación es un entrar en la vida de Jesús de tal manera que vives los eventos en tu corazón y desarrollar así una relación afectiva con el Señor. La devoción al Niño Dios debe ser acompañada de la lectio divina. —Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
