pastor’s note
Leadership
CHURCH
In his catecheses St. Ambrose
gives an enthusiastic comment
on this passage from the Fourth
Gospel. His words are addressed
to Christians recently baptized, but
they also show us how the Saint
preferred to approach baptism.
Rev. Sean Weeks, Pastor
(503) 644-5264 / [email protected]
Rev. Francisco Bringuela, Parochial Vicar
(503) 644-5264 / [email protected]
Rev. Peter Siamoo, Priest in Residence
When you had yourself registered,
he (Jesus) took some clay and spread it on your eyes.
What does that mean? It means that you were forced
to acknowledge your sin, examine your conscience,
do penance for your faults – in short, you had to admit
to the state that the whole human race shares. For
although the person approaching baptism makes no
confession of sins, he does nonetheless admit his sins
by asking for baptism that justifies and by asking to
pass from sin to grace.

ADMINISTRATION
EASTER MORNING PARKING
To accommodate a large number of cars expected for our
9:00 am and 11:00 am Easter Masses:
Do not think that this act is useless. There are those –
I know at least one, who, when we told him: “At your
age you have a greater obligation to be baptized,”
replied: “Why should I be baptized? I have no sins. I
have never committed a sin, have I?” Such a man had
no clay, because Christ had not spread it on his eyes;
which is to say that Christ had not opened his eyes.
For, in fact, no man is without sin.
•
•
•
Consequently, anyone who takes refuge in baptism
acknowledges that he is but human. Christ, then,
put mud on you, that is, he gave you a reverential
fear, prudence, and a consciousness of your own
weakness, and he said to you: “Go to Siloam.” What
is “Siloam”? It means (says the evangelist) “Sent.”
In other words, then: Go to the fountain where they
preach the Cross of Christ the Lord; go to the fountain
in which Christ has paid the ransom for the sins of all.
•
For these two Masses the church will provide traffic
control police at both the Saltzman Road and 123rd
Street entrances to the church, as well as having traffic
control staff in our parking lot. We hope to make your
experience of parking as comfortable as possible with
the limited amount of space that we have. Thank you for
your patience.
You went, you washed, you came to the altar, you
began to see what you had not seen before. In short,
your eyes were opened in the fountain of the Lord and
by the preaching of the Lord’s Passion. You seemed
previously to be blind of heart; now you began to see
the light.124 (The Liturgical Year, Lent Holy Week,
Adrian Nocent, OSB, pgs. 108-109)

Walking into Lent: A labyrinth Walk
In ancient times the church used the labyrinth for the community to make
pilgrimages when it was not safe to travel to the Holy lands. Many of the
great cathedrals of Europe had them inlaid into their floors, but all but a
couple were destroyed over the years in the wars. As the labyrinth returns
as a practice of prayer and peace, we offer our Pilgrim's Traveling Labyrinth, lit with sacred candle light, to make your own pilgrim's journey. Use
this time to walk the labyrinth for meditation, a time to honor those who
have passed, or any other sacred stirring of your heart. The labyrinth can
be a great healing tool as it calms the mind and allows for sacred focusing
of the heart. Come in to release, receive and return as you step on to the
sacred path of light.

Ministerio latino
la Nota del parroco
REFLEXIÓN
En su catequesis St. Ambrose da un
comentario entusiástico en este pasaje
del cuarto evangelio. Su palabras
son dirigirse a Cristianos que son
recientemente bautizado pero también
enseñan cómo el santo preferido
acercarse bautismo.
Si observamos con cuidado a nuestro alrededor, quedaremos
sorprendidos al darnos cuenta de que la naturaleza tiene algo
relevante e importante que enseñarnos acerca de nuestra fe.
La observación de esas gigantescas montañas, las cascadas
de inspiración divina o las estrellas que cuelgan en el cielo,
las mariposas que vemos durante el verano volando alrededor
de los jardines y que ayudan a polinizar las flores, etc. Estas
mariposas hipnotizan nuestros ojos con la belleza de sus alas
de colores. Yo creo, que tienen algo espiritualmente profundo
que enseñarnos.
Cuando tuviste a registrarte, el (Jesús)
se coge arcilla y se difundirlo en sus
ojos. ¿Qué significa este? Significa que forzarte a admitir
tus pecados, examinar tu consciente, hacer penitencia por
sus culpas –en curto, había que admitir al estado que toda la
raza humana compartirá. Aunque la persona que se acerca
bautismo no hace confesión de pecados, pero se admitir
sus pecados preguntando por bautismo que justificad y
preguntando a pasar desde pecado a gracia.
Algunos biólogos consideran las mariposas entre las más
fascinantes de los insectos, porque tienen el sabor de su
comida en los pies, no vuelan cuando está frío, y el hecho
más interesante de ellas; se someten a un proceso único de
transformación de crecimiento llamado Metamorfosis.
No pienso que esto acto es inútil. Hay algunos– conozco al
menos uno quien cuando le dijimos: “A tu edad tienes un
gran obligación para ser bautizado,” el respondido: “¿Por qué
había de hacer bautizado? No tengo pecados. ¿Nunca comité
un pecado, verdad?” Una hombre como este no tuvo arcilla
porque Jesucristo no difundirlo en sus ojos; esto significa que
Jesucristo no se abro sus ojos. Por un facto no hombre es sin
pecados.
Algunos de ustedes saben mejor que yo este término
científico, Metamorfosis. Yo no sé mucho al respecto.
Probablemente me dormí cuando lo estudiamos en la
escuela. Pero recuerdo como las mariposas pasan por
diferentes etapas de la transformación física. Comienzan
como un peculiar huevo que busca convertirse en orugas.
Entonces, después de ser unas orugas, se convierten en
mariposas; preparan sus propios capullos donde permanecen
dentro varias semanas casi como un hombre muerto en un
ataúd. Cuando están listos, hermosas mariposas de colores
comienzan a emerger de esos capullos.
Consecuentemente, cualquier que se refugia en bautismo
reconocerse que es humano. Jesucristo, pone arcilla en usted,
eso significa que te dio un temor reverencial, prudencia, y un
conocimiento a su debilidad y se dijo: “Ve al Siloé.” ¿Que
es Siloé? Significa (dice el evangelista) “Enviado.” En otras
palabras, entonces: Ve a la fuente donde predican la cruz de
Cristo el Señor; ve a la fuente en la que Cristo se pagó el
rescate por los pecados de todos.
Este proceso metamórfico de crecimiento de las mariposas y
de muchos insectos e incluso en los mamíferos nos dice que
el cambio es una parte inevitable de la naturaleza. Casi todo
lo que vemos a nuestro alrededor se somete al proceso de
cambio o transformación.
Fuiste, te levaste, vino a la alterar, comenzaste a mirar que
no vistes antes. En corto, tus ojos se abrieron en la fuente del
Señor y el predica de la pasión del Señor. Parecía ciego de
corazón; ahora comienzan a mirar la luz.124 (El evangelio de
año, La Semana Santo de Cuaresma, Adrian Nocent, OSB,
págs. 108-109)
Esto es algo que podríamos aprender a medida que
continuamos la celebración del tiempo de la Cuaresma. De
la misma forma que las mariposas y muchos animales se
someten a transformaciones, como parte del ecosistema,
nosotros también debemos cambiar o transformarnos para
ser mejores seres humanos y cristianos. Tenemos que pasar
por un proceso de metamorfosis espiritual, transformación
o conversión que nos debe llevar a un cambio positivo en
nuestra vida. Esta transformación no se trata simplemente de
un cambio externo, un cambio en la perspectiva física, sino
más bien una transformación interior, un cambio del corazón.
Con la Gracia de Dios,
Padre Sean Weeks
Parroco

De sacramentis III, 12-15 (SC 25bis:98-100).
En el Evangelio, Jesús nos invita a ese cambio interior que
debemos atravesar.
Jesús nos llama a cada uno de nosotros a hacer una limpieza
de nuestro ser interior de cualquier actitud negativa que
nos hace menos de la persona que Dios quiere que seamos;

ministerio latino cont.
de la misma manera que él transforma y cambia todo en la
naturaleza, de igual forma que las mariposas, los insectos, los
mamíferos, e incluso los árboles, Dios quiere transformarnos
para convertirnos en lo que él quiere que seamos. Dejemos
que Dios haga eso en nosotros. Dejemos que Él nos
transforme en esta Cuaresma a través del sacramento de la
confesión, dejemos que Dios nos cambie a través de la gracia
eficaz de la Eucaristía, nos transforme a través de las personas
que nos rodean.
