Page 2 November 23, 2014 Although we have a deep faith in the Resurrection of Jesus and in the eternal life that He has won for us, allowing us to share in the very life of the Trinity in an eternity of bliss, that doesn’t generally make us any happier about thinking about the end of our lives on this earth. One of the concerns we have is what is going to happen to those who are left behind? If I have several children and only a limited amount of property, how would that be divided up? - equally or according to their particular needs? How do I go about organizing this? Or if I or my spouse have health issues, what is Catholic teaching on the treatments that are available? What can I refuse and what must I accept? What rights do I and my designated next-of-kin have in regards to treatment? We don’t want to leave all the arrangements for our funerals to our loved ones after we are gone - they will be grief-stricken (hopefully!) and find it difficult to make all the decisions that need to be made. To help with these issues we are organizing a Life-Planning Seminar for sometime in the New Year. Please take a moment to fill out the questionnaire below so that we can see what issues matter most to our parishioners and make sure that these areas are covered in our seminar. We will need help to organize the seminar, so if you could help in any way we’d be extremely grateful. Please fill in the line #4 on the questionnaire to indicate how you might be able to help. God Bless, Fr. Robert.

Reminder: Gifts for the Angel Tree children should be brought to the Narthex by December 7th. Find the face of Christ Imagine a world designed for your pleasure! Philippine Duchesne was raised in a French society that loved to throw a party. She dressed up and danced—until the revolution in France shattered the upper-class bubble. Dedicating herself to Christ, she found him in two places: the faces of the poor and the Eucharist. She couldn’t tell them apart, which is a good thing. Arriving in America as a Sacred Heart sister, she served poor children in frontier schools in Missouri and Louisiana. What can you do for the poor Christ today? The Columbiettes again are offering you the opportunity to order “Keep Christ in Christmas“ Cards from their catalogue. You can get a catalogue in the Narthex. Orders are due by November 23rd to ensure they arrive in time for Christmas mailings.

Página 6 23 de Noviembre de 2014 THE VIRGIN MARY IS ONE FOR ALL LET US DO WHAT SHE TELLS US: OBEY THE KING OF THE UNIVERSE 'Do whatever He tells you.' This famous expression that the Blessed Virgin Mary says is the summit of the guarantees that promise us full happiness here on earth and eternal joy in heaven. There are many voices in the world inviting us to do what we please, what others tell us, what fashion imposes or what the Devil is saying to our conscience by manipulating and seducing us with temptation. Yes, many external and internal voices. But just at this moment in my heart is the voice of the Virgin inviting us in the Parish of Saint Ann, to do what Jesus tells us to do. The first person to give us the secret to continuously filling the empty jars in our hearts with new hope and faith is the Virgin Mary. But we need to realize our identity as members of the Catholic Church. First of all, We love the Virgin, We venerate the person recognizing that the God the Father, choses her, to be the mother of His Son Jesus. The Mother of God the Son. Therefore she is also the Mother of the Eucharist, Mother of the Church. Jesus gave his mother to the whole of mankind from the wood of the cross when he said to John: behold your mother. Therefore, it is also our mother. We believe she takes us by the hand to Jesus; She intercedes for us before God and comforts us in our afflictions as a loving and faithful mother. She is the same person, under any of the various names She has used in her many visits or appearances to every human group on the planet. She is only one, the Mother of God himself. And in our parish we honor her childhood, in the arms of her mother, Saint Ann, our patroness. Let us celebrate with joy the Octave Mariano SHE IS ONE FOR ALL from December 5 to 12. Both, The Englishspeaking and Spanish-speaking people are just one family. SHE IS ONE FOR ALL and we are all one in her, doing everything the Lord is telling us to do. The favorite sons of the Virgin are priests. Jesus shares his priesthood ministry with Father Robert and with me. He shares the third degree of priesthood with the deacons to work with and encourage priests in their ministry and share the common priesthood of all the baptized faithful and especially you. Get ready to renew your faith now that you're reading these few lines of spiritual encouragement, of Mariology and Faith in action, and every moment of celebration, every day of your life. Fr. Frank LA VIRGEN MARÍA ES UNA PARA TODOS, HAGAMOS LO QUE ELLA NOS DICE: OBEDEZCAN AL REY Hagan lo que Él les diga. Estas celebres palabras de la Santísima Virgen María son el colmo de las garantías que nos aseguran la felicidad plena aquí en la tierra y el gozo eterno en el cielo. Hay muchas voces en el mundo que nos invitan a hacer lo que nos dé la gana, lo que otros nos digan, lo que la moda nos impone o lo que el diablo nos presente manipulando nuestra conciencia y seduciéndonos con la tentación. Si, muchas voces externas e internas. Pero, solo una resuena en este momento en mi corazón y es la voz de la Virgen que nos está invitando en la Parroquia de Santa Ana a hacer lo que nos diga Jesús. La primera persona en darnos el secreto para poder llenar continuamente las tinajas vacías de nuestros corazones con nueva fe y esperanza es la Virgen. Pero necesitamos tomar conciencia de nuestra identidad de cristianos católicos. Nosotros amamos a la Virgen, la veneramos, la reconocemos como la persona que Dios Padre escogió para ser la madre de su Hijo Jesús, la Madre de Dios Hijo. Por lo tanto es también la Madre de la Eucaristía, la Madre de la Iglesia. La madre que Jesús le entregó a la humanidad entera desde el madero de la cruz cuando le dijo a San Juan: ahí tienes a tu madre. Por lo tanto, es también nuestra madre. Creemos que ella nos lleva de la mano a Jesús, intercede por nosotros ante Él y nos consuela en nuestras aflicciones como madre amorosa y fiel. Ella es única, bajo cualquiera de los distintos nombres que ha utilizado en sus numerosas visitas o apariciones a todos los grupos humanos en el planeta. Ella es solo una, la Madre del mismo Dios. Y en nuestra parroquia la veneramos en su infancia, en los brazos de su Madre Santa Ana, nuestra patrona. Celebremos pues con gozo el Octavario Mariano del 5 al 12 de diciembre. Las personas ingles hablantes y los hispanohablantes. ELLA ES UNA PARA TODOS y nosotros somos todos uno en ella haciendo todo lo que nos diga su hijo Cristo Jesús. Los hijos predilectos de la Virgen son los sacerdotes. Jesús comparte su sacerdocio ministerial con el Padre Roberto y conmigo. Él comparte el tercer grado del orden con los diáconos para que colaboren y animen a los presbíteros en su apostolado. Y comparte el sacerdocio común de los fieles con todos los bautizados y especialmente contigo. Prepárate a renovar tu fe ahora que estás leyendo estas cortas líneas de aliento espiritual, mariología aplicada y eucaristía en acción, y en cada momento celebrativo todos los días de tu vida. Fr. Frank Página 7 SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL Hoy celebramos a Cristo Rey, escuchamos a Jesús decir: “ De cierto os digo que en cuanto lo hicisteis a uno de estos, mis hermanos más pequeño a mí lo hicisteis”. Sabiendo que encontramos el rostro de Cristo en los pobres, la sociedad de St. Vicente de Paul quiere agradecerles a nuestros feligreses por permitirnos servir a las familias necesitadas, proporcionándoles comida y ropa.

Una vez más, "Gracias" a los Padres de familia por el apoyo y la ayuda que nos han brindado en el procedimiento de la salida de los estudiantes.

Sr. Josie En respuesta a la llamada de Cristo, "Pido al Señor de la Mies que haya obreros para la viña, estamos lanzando el "Programa Cáliz Peregrino de Vocaciones" en nuestra parroquia. Animamos a los feligreses a llevar el Cáliz a su casa durante una semana para orar por las vocaciones! Simplemente coloque el Cáliz en un lugar prominente, ore (oraciones están incluídas) y hable de las vocaciones. Vamos a comenzar con la Misa del 12 de diciembre. Inscripción para el programa será el próximo fin de semana en el Narthex. ATTENCION: Favor de no olvidar y dejar una donación cuando encienda una vela en la torre. No permitan que los niños jueguen dentro de la torre.
