Ah the happy times of family growing up! Every family has a favorite word or phrase
that seems to permeate their existence with one another in the formative years; ours was “shut up.” Don’t ask me the
whys or wherefores of such witty repartee; it was just something we said to one another all the time. It wasn’t meant,
necessarily, in a mean or nasty way, it was just communicating to a beloved brother or sister that you didn’t want to hear
their voice at that moment. Apparently we were preparing to join a Trappist monastery where all speech is forbidden,
except the essential stuff like—prayer, greeting visitors and “where’s the toilet paper?” The good part about the phrase
shut up is that it shut up; in other words, as kids we used it a lot, but as adults it fell into desuetude (found this word in a
book from 1940; couldn’t wait to use it).
Now perhaps you’re thinking that we would be foolish enough to say the shut up phrase to our parents; the answer
is no, the fact that we all lived into adulthood proves that. My mother did once say we had a couple of other siblings that
were buried in the backyard; according to her they “talked back.” Even though my name may not suggest it, our mother
was Irish therefore prone to great rage when another child, adult or creature crossed her path. There was a rumor about
her being a member of the Irish Republican Army but that was untrue; I found the rejection letter from them after her
funeral, she was deemed “too easy to anger for our organization.” But she and dad must have done something right, we
all turned out well, attend Mass and can talk to each other without saying shut up.
Our Holy Father Pope Francis is fond of saying that the words that make families successful are: please, thank
you, I’m sorry and I love you. Shut up didn’t make the list. When we use the words and phrases that the Holy Father
suggests we become stronger families and stronger families lead to a better society. The family and the Church are
reflections of one another; the Catechism calls the family the domestic Church. Is it possible to be a Holy Church without
strong families? The answer today and always is no. Father Rector

Prayer Requests
Director of Religious Education
As we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Family of
Jesus, Mary and Joseph this is a good
time to start the New Year looking to the Holy
Family to shape, model and seek protection of
our own families. After the Christmas gifts are already
unwrapped, the most important gift we can give our children is to
pass our faith on to them and help them to develop their own
foundation in faith as to sustain them with all that life has yet
unfold for them. There is no gift as important or worthy as
sharing our faith and love for Jesus with our children.
Please remain active in sharing your faith with your family and

Thank you
I would like to thank the Knights of Columbus and the El
Pescadores for each of them donating one thousand dollars
towards the purchase of a Saber Micro 16. Hard floor scrubber
with a brush or a pad for cleaning. And I need to thank Fr Richard
for approving the final cost. My hope is it will allow us to clean our
restrooms and all hard floors cleaner in less time than with the
conventional mop. It is like all purchases we try to buy only what
we think we will use and what will make our beautiful Cathedral &
the square even more appealing by how clean we can keep it.
This is a 100% participation on all members here of our church.
We all need to do what we can to keep the gum off the pews and
the carpet. When we have our spring clean up we get a bucketful
of gum from the bottom of the pews. When Central Catholic has
their community service day and the lay on their back for hours
cleaning gum off the bottoms of our pews they have a lot different
attitude about their disposition of Gum. All members who clean this
have a bad attitude towards the gum.
Also I hope to strip different areas of the old wax off of the terrazzo
in the church and square and this will be a great asset for this job.
Again I want to thank The Knights of Columbus and our El
Pescadores for their generous gift. And warn them. We will need to
set up different dates in the future for clean up days.
Thank you and May God bless you for your generosity

Word of Life
“[W]e are facing an enormous and dramatic clash between good
and evil, death and life, the ‘culture of death’ and the ‘culture of
life’. We find ourselves not only ‘faced with’ but necessarily ‘in the
midst of’ this conflict: we are all involved and we all share in it,
with the inescapable responsibility of choosing to be
unconditionally pro-life.” Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, 28

sorrows of family life. The message of Christmas shines through:
God-with-us is available to us in the ordinary patterns of our lives
and commitments. The lives of people who raise their children in
difficult circumstances, and of people who remain faithful to life in
the Church in spite of some of their own family struggles, occupy
a special place in our hearts today in prayer.

Mientras celebramos la fiesta de la
Sagrada Familia de Jesús, María y José
que es un buen momento para empezar el
año nuevo en busca de la Sagrada Familia
para dar forma, y buscar la protección de
nuestras propias familias. Después de que
los regalos de Navidad ya se desenvuelven, el regalo más
importante que podemos dar a nuestros hijos es pasar nuestra fe
a ellos y ayudarles a desarrollar su propio fundamento en la fe
como para sostenerlos con todo lo que la vida todavía se
despliega para ellos. No hay regalo tan importante o digno como
compartir nuestra fe y amor a Jesús con nuestros hijos. Por
favor, permanezcan activos en compartir su fe con su familia y lo
que es la cosa más importante en la vida, dándole todo lo que
necesita para seguir creciendo como, la asistencia a misa, de la
escritura / compartir la Biblia y la oración diaria en familia. Se nos
ha regalado con hijos / nietos y los niños en nuestra comunidad
para moldear y dar forma a su fe. Vamos todos a prestar
atención a la llamada de Dios y tomar el tiempo y esfuerzo para
mantener nuestra fe creciente y nuestras familias algo santo y
sagrado. Dios los bendiga, Mary Rose

Nota de Agradecimiento: De La Oficina De Mantenimiento
Me gustaría dar las gracias a los Caballeros de
Colon y al Ministerio El Pescador por la donación de mil dólares
que dieron cada uno, para ayudar con la compra de la maquita
Saber Micro 16 para lavar los pisos. Agradezco al padre Ricardo
por aprobar esta comprar y los costos totales. Mi deseo es
limpiar los pisos en menos tiempo que con el trapeador. Como
todo se necesita la participación al 100% de todos para que
lograr lo que proponemos. Necesitamos hacer lo que podamos
para mantener nuestras bancas y carpetas libres de chicles.
Cuando tenemos la limpieza anual de primavera, casi se llena
un balde de chicles que se quitan de debajo de las bancas y
carpetas. Cuando los jóvenes estudiantes de la escuela católica
central hacen sus horas de servicio comunitario aquí, después
de pasar casi todo un día completo con sus espaldas en el piso
quitando los chicles de las bancas, se van con una actitud
diferente en como despojar el chicle que ya no quieren mascar.
Todos los miembros que han ayudado con esto les puedo decir
que tienen otra actitud sobre los chicles, especialmente en venir
mascando chicle a nuestro Templo Sagrado. También espero
abarcar diferentes aéreas de la iglesia y el centro y remover
capas de cera vieja. Otra vez agradezco a los Caballeros de
Colon y al Ministerio
El Pescador por su generosidad. Y al mismo tiempo avisarles
que vamos a programar diferentes fechas en el futuro
cercano para hacer limpieza.
Gracias y Que nuestro Señor los bendiga por su generosidad
Diacono John Farlee
Director de Mantenimiento
“[E]stamos ante un enorme y dramático choque entre el bien y el mal,
la muerte y la vida, la ‘cultura de la muerte’ y la ‘cultura de la vida’.
Estamos no sólo ‘ante’, sino necesariamente ‘en medio’ de este
conflicto: todos nos vemos implicados y obligados a participar, con la
responsabilidad ineludible de elegir incondicionalmente en favor de la
vida”.Papa Juan Pablo II, Evangelium Vitae, 28 © 1995 Libreria
