Our Mission
The Catholic Community of Our Lady of
Malibu welcomes all people to worship
God, to grow spiritually in the Catholic
faith, and to receive encouragement and
direction in shaping the wider world in
light of the Gospel.
Treasures From Our Tradition
Old customs fade slowly, and in 1560 the Council of
Trent tried for significant change in pastoral care of the
sick. People resisted, thinking that the last breath was the
right time for the sacrament. Although physical improvement was often noted after anointing, it was seen as a
kind of bonus, rather than an expected outcome of a
prayer for good health, strength, patience, and even healing. More than four hundred years later, many people
still do not ask for anointing until it is literally too late
for the person to have reasonable hope of healing, or at
least be aware enough to participate in the ritual. By
then, it may even be too late for viaticum, the true “last
We have a treasure in our tradition that we seem reluctant to use. We visit the sick, we anoint those who are
in the first crisis of illness, we give Communion to those
who are dying, and we keep vigil and pray for those
close to death. When anointing is celebrated early
enough, optimally when the sick person is still at Sunday
Mass, it can be a source of courage, faith, and hope for a
difficult road ahead. When we anoint our sick, we remind them that they belong to Christ and a community of
faith. We bring them into the presence of Christ to reconcile, heal, and give strength and hope. We resist forces
that isolate and alienate the sick; the symbol of touch is a
powerful act of acceptance. Why wait until the crisis of
illness is dire before we apply such a rich remedy to
body and soul?

Catholic Identity Corner
Did you make any New Year’s resolutions this year?
Have they already fallen by the wayside? Or are you on
your way to adopting a healthy new habit that will last a
while? Typically, New Year’s resolutions are geared toward improving our physical health, but it is just as important to take care of our spiritual well-being.
I was talking to Fr. Bill recently and he mentioned that
he starts his day by reading the daily prayer at this website: http://www.sacredspace.ie/
He pointed out that it is helpful to begin the day by being
centered on God’s word before his day gets too busy.
You might want to visit this website to read the brief
prayer each morning or a page in a book of day-by-day
prayers, or pray a decade of the Rosary while commuting. Whatever you choose to do to take care of your spiritual health, give yourself a few weeks to allow it to become a habit. Once you get to that point, you avoid the
struggle to fit daily prayer and conversation with God
into your active life.
Happy New Year!

We will resume our study on Thursday January 29 at 10:30

and some of the most influential works ever written. We will
be using a series of video lectures by Fr. Raymond F. Collins
former professor and former dean of Religious Studies at
Catholic University. The study will consist of the lectures
along with discussion. All are welcome.

To Visit the Sick
In the Gospel, Jesus reminds us His followers we are to be
servants of all. Visiting the sick to bring the Eucharist, as
well the love, prayers and the support of the OLM community is one vital way to serve, to connect those who are not able
to be with us at Sunday Mass. If you know a shut-in who
would like to be visited by a member of the OLM homebound ministry team, please contact the Parish Office.
If you are new in the Parish or have moved to a new
address, please complete this form,and return it to the
Parish Office or place it in the collection basket.
