Palm Sunday: March 29, 2015 “Christ emptied himself, and God filled this emptiness with exaltation” -Philippians 2:6-11 Pastor Reflection The contrast between the processional reading in today’s liturgy and the proclamation of the Passion is striking. We are given a glimpse of how profoundly the word of God is fulfilled in Jesus. First he must be hailed as the Messiah, the One Who Is to Come. He must be acknowledged by all, though they do not know what they are saying. They think he is the promised king, a worldly king of the Jews who will free them from the Roman occupation. They do not yet understand, even the disciples, exactly where this triumphal procession is leading. In our lives, we too do not know where we are going. It is in faith that we can follow Christ wherever he may lead us, trusting that death is not the end, nor evil the victor. A WELL-TRAINED TONGUE What can be said after the reading of the Passion of the Lord? It leaves us speechless and sad, and a little numb. We can look to the words of Isaiah, who, speaking for Jesus, prophesies the eloquent teaching of Jesus, his mistreatment at the hands of those he comes to save, and ultimately, his victory over evil and death itself. The Catholic Church of Visalia EASTER EGG HUNT For Parish Families and their children ages 1 - 6 years Saturday, April 4th George McCann School grounds Gates open at 9 am Egg Hunt begins at 10 am Paul stresses Jesus’ obedience, the fact that he listened to the word of God, as Isaiah affirms, “Morning after morning / [God] opens my ear that I may hear” (Isaiah 50:4). Jesus brings God’s loving message, and instead of welcome, he receives “buffets and spitting (Isaiah 50:6). JOIN US FOR SOME FAMILY FUN! He humbles himself to be like us, even to death, a shameful and horrific death by crucifixion. What are we to make of it all? * George McCann Classrooms tours NOT DISGRACED We can get distracted by the horror—so repelled that we turn away, like the apostles, and want to run very far. But we miss the point if we close our eyes to the meaning of the suffering. Jesus’ death showed that evil cannot have the last word, for it prepared the way for his resurrection. We fear death, and wish we could make it go away. So did the Lord. We are heavy and sad at the thought of his suffering, of anyone’s suffering, and we want to turn and run. So did the Lord. Yet his obedience was perfect; he never heard a word of God that he did not keep and teach others to do the same. His death was his final “yes” to the will of God. And his resurrection is God’s final answer to the forces of evil and death.

Upcoming & Ongoing Events MUSIC MINISTRY DURING THE PASCHAL SEASON We all know that our worship music used at Masses, other liturgies like our Good Friday Service and the Liturgy of the Hours, and our devotions such as the Divine Mercy Chaplet follows the calendar of seasons and their proper readings and Psalms for each Sunday and Holyday. Leaders of choirs and ensemble groups are required to select chants, hymns and songs (in addition to the Mass Ordinary parts) that have sacred texts that are not only bound to scripture lessons, but are actually appointed to be sung on certain and exact days. Beginning with Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion we will experience that right at the formal Entrance of the Priest celebrating Mass with the deacon(s) and acolytes/servers. The Church instructs musicians and congregations to sing “Hosanna Filio David,” David,” or “Hosanna to the Son of David” during the initial entrance (introit) of the priest. Then the collect is prayed to greet all people, the first gospel is proclaimed, and then all the ministers proceed to the sanctuary to another appointed text such as “Children of Jerusalem” (Pueri (Pueri Habraeorum) Habraeorum) or another suitable hymn such as “All glory, laud and honor.” As in all Sunday Masses, the responsorial psalm assigned (“My God….why have You abandoned me?” Ps.22) Ps.22) is sung. But, after the Epistle reading many people are unaware that the Solemn Passion of the Lord is actually meant to be sung or chanted. Practically that can’t be done in every one of our Masses for this feast day, but the intended preference of it being chanted will happen at St. Mary’s 8:30 and 10:30am Masses. Ideally sung by the celebrant and deacons, the Church allows the option of three chanters proclaiming the Passion so that the entire assembly can actively listen to the Passion narrative with full attention. After the Passion is sung, the Mass continues with its normally assigned musical accompaniments to the liturgical actions. The “upshot” to take away from raising the solemnity of the day by chanting rather than reciting the Passion reminds us that the Mass itself is ideally supposed to be entirely sung, even in the Ordinary Form that we’ve celebrated since 1970. This isn’t an “old custom” from the Latin Mass eras at all. All of the Vatican II liturgical documents make clear the great importance of “singing THE Mass,” rather than “singing AT the Mass.” Of course, scheduling, time constraints, and personnel involved mitigate whether we can observe the ideal manner in which we celebrate the rites of the Mass, but again, the more prayers, collects (invitations) and lessons that are sung, the more Roman Catholic tradition is being manifested. And we truly can then claim to be actually singing in concert with Saints and Angels in Heaven “Hosanna to God in the highest.” In the next installment, I’ll highlight the Triduum and Easter Sunday aspects of sacred music at Mass. What is “Circumambulation?” One might think it’s “going around in circles” and that wouldn’t be wrong! But, it is a liturgical term that has to do with processions. In the Sunday and festal Masses there are at least three processions: The Entrance, Offertory and Communion. Those parishioners who attend St. Mary’s, Holy Family or St. Charles might have noticed that the music ministers often chant a short antiphon with some verses before the Entrance and during the distribution of Holy Communion to the Acolytes and Extraordinary Ministers. Well, those chants are actually what is actually prescribed by the Church documents to be sung for those processions. But given the custom of singing hymns and songs we don’t wish to displace those, but would like to move closer to the ideals the Church has established. We will make a first step toward this goal on Palm and Passion Sunday at the 8:30 and 10:30am Masses at St. Mary’s. The celebrant and ministers will enter the Church sanctuary at the ringing of the Sacristy bell, at which point they will process down the north aisle of the Church to the entrance doors. The chant accompanying that process will be the formal Introit, “Hosanna “Hosanna to the Son of David.” David.” The celebrant then will proceed with the Solemn Entrance rites and reading of the First Gospel. Then he and the ministers will procede up the center aisle to the hymn “All “All Glory, Laud and Honor” Honor” and conclude the Opening Rite in the sanctuary. At the Offertory, the acolytes will process down the south aisle to the family presenting the Offertory gifts, again to the Offertory chant, and then come up the center aisle to present them to the deacon and celebrant, accompanied by an appropriate congregational hymn. These processions essentially envelope the entire congregation, enabling all to actively “see and watch” the procession and then to join in singing as the ministers come up the middle aisle. That is the value of the processionals, which has been an ever more important part of Masses since Vatican II. “Encircling” the congregation contributes an enhanced sense of sacredness and solemnity. And if you think about it, it doesn’t take any more time to accomplish than the “normal” processions, when the company of ministers would still have to walk outside (sometimes in brutally cold or hot weather) to the front of the Church, or walk down and back up the center aisle for the Offertory. Because of other constraints we often cannot hold processions outside for major feasts such as this. “Circumambulation” also relieves this deficiency for any of our parishes. Hopefully, we will continue the practice as a normal part of the liturgical rites at TCCoV in the future. Upcoming & Ongoing Events WWW.TCCOV.ORG/EVENTS Catholic Professionals Meeting April 9th The Catholic Professionals & Business Club will have their next meeting on Thursday, April 9th. The group meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month, (with the exception of January, July and August) from 7-8:30 am at the Visalia Holiday Inn. For questions, more information or reservations, please call Eileen Daly at 559-805-7008, or register on line at cpbc-tularekings.org. Breakfast is $20 for non-members and $15 for members. Our guest speaker for the April meeting is Tom Carroll, Middle East specialist and former officer in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), for an evenhanded look at Islam in today’s world – from a Catholic point of view. Among the questions we will discuss: • What can the Middle East teach us about the authenticity of the Catholic Church? • What are the crucial beliefs Catholics and Muslims share, and why do we share them? • • What is “Shari’a law” and why is it important? What is the difference between radical and traditional Islam? Where does the difference come from? Why does it matter today? Tom joined the Clandestine Service of CIA shortly after graduating from college with a degree in philosophy. He spent years under cover in the Middle East, specializing in the region and its issues. Tom and his wife converted to Catholicism while living in Istanbul, Turkey. Please plan to join us on Thursday, April 9, 2015. Everyone is welcome.

The Reconciliation of Penitents in the Church’s Life (Cont.) The Sacrament of Penance and Its Parts The follower of Christ who has sinned but who has been moved by the Holy Spirit to come to the sacrament of penance should above all become converted to God with his whole heart. This inner conversion of heart embraces sorrow for sin and the intent to lead a new life. It is expressed through confession made to the Church, due to satisfaction, and amendment of life. God grants pardon for sin through the Church, which works by the ministry of priests. A) Contrition. The most important act of penitent is contrition, which is a “heartfelt” sorrow and aversion for the sin committed along with the intention of sinning no more.” “We can only approach the Kingdom of Christ by metanoia. This is a profound change of the whole person by which one begins to consider, judge and arrange his life according to the holiness and love of God, made manifest in his Son in the last day and given to us in abundance” (see Hebrews 1:2; Colossians 1:19 and passim). The genuineness of penance depends on this heartfelt contrition. For conversion should affect a person from within so that it may progressively enlighten him and render him continually more like Christ. B) Confession. The sacrament of penance includes the confession of sins, which comes from true knowledge of self before God and from contrition for those sins. However this inner examination of heart to the minister of God and in the minister a spiritual judgement by which, acting in the person of Christ, he pronounces his decision of forgiveness or retention of sins in accord with the empower of the keys. C) Act of Penance (Satisfaction) True conversion is completed by acts of penance or satisfaction for the sins committed, by amendment of conduct, and also by the reparation of injury. The kind and extent of the satisfaction should be suited to the personal condition of each penitent so that each one may restore the cured of the sickness from which he suffered. Therefore, it is necessary that the act of penance really be a remedy for sin and a help to renewal of life. Thus the penitent, “forgetting the things which are behind him” (Philippians 3:13), again becomes part of the mystery of salvation and turns himself toward the future. D) Absolution. Through the sign of absolution God grants and pardon to the sinner who in sacramental confession manifests his change of heart to the Church’s minister and thus the sacrament of penance is completed. In God’s design the humanity and loving kindness of our Savior have visibly appeared to us, and God uses visible signs to give salvation and to renew the broken covenant. In the sacrament of penance the Father receives the repentant son who comes back to him, Christ places the lost sheep on his shoulders and brings back to the sheepfold, and the Holy Spirit sanctifies this temple of God again or lives more fully within it. This is finally expressed in a renewed and more fervent sharing of the Lord’s table, and there is great joy at the banquet of God’s Church over the son who has returned from afar. The Sorrowful Mysteries of the Holy Rosary [In light of the Feast Day of the Anunciation on March 25 and the Holy Triduum on April 2, 3, & 4] As we journey along this Holy Week, meditating on the passion and death of the Lord, let us keep in mind that God’s only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, became flesh in the womb of Mary for this moment. He willingly gave himself to suffer and die because of His great love for the Father and for us; but before God can accomplish this, He invited Mary to be part of this heavenly plan through the Archangel Gabriel. For without Mary, in His perfect plan, the Son of God, pure spirit, will not have the human body to be able to suffer. In His infinitely great power, God humbled Himself to take on human form by dwelling in the most sacred place He created on earth – the Womb of a Mother. Mary’s Fiat made it happen. With Mary, God became incarnate so that he could suffer for the world. May our Lenten journey increase our Faith, Hope, and Love so that, like Mary at the Annunciation and at the Crucifixion, we, too, upon God’s invitation, can say Fiat – we are Your servants, Lord; let Your will be done in us. Amen.

Domingo de Ramos: 29 de Marzo de 2015 “Jesús se despojó totalmente y Dios lo llenó de exaltación” -Filipenses 2:6-11 Pray the Novena Pastor Reflexión UNA LENGUA EXPERTA ¿Qué puede decirse luego de leer la Pasión del Señor? Nos deja estupefactos, tristes y un tanto atontados. Podemos ir a las palabras de Isaías quien, hablando por Jesús, profetiza la elocuente enseñanza de Jesús, su maltrato a manos de los que vino a salvar y en última instancia, su victoria por sobre el mal y la misma muerte. Pablo destaca la obediencia de Jesús, el hecho de que escuchó la palabra de Dios, como afirma Isaías, “Mañana tras mañana / [el Señor] despierta mi oído para que escuche yo” (Isaías 50:4). Jesús trae el mensaje de Dios y en vez de recibir una bienvenida recibe “insultos y salivazos (Isaías 50:6). Se humilló a sí mismo para ser como nosotros, incluso aceptó la muerte, una muerte vergonzosa y horrorosa mediante la crucifixión. ¿Qué conclusiones sacamos al respecto? NO ES UNA DESHONRA Podemos distraernos por el horror –sentirnos tan repugnados que nos apartamos, como los apóstoles, y queremos correr muy lejos. Pero si cerramos nuestros ojos al significado del sufrimiento no comprendemos el mensaje. La muerte de Jesús mostró que el mal no puede tener la última palabra, porque preparó el camino para su resurrección. Le tememos a la muerte y desearíamos poder hacerla desaparecer. Lo mismo le pasó al Señor. Nos sentimos apesadumbrados y tristes al pensar en su sufrimiento, en el sufrimiento de cualquiera, y queremos apartarnos y correr. Lo mismo le pasó al Señor. Sin embargo su obediencia fue perfecta, nunca escuchó una palabra de Dios que no haya mantenido y enseñado a los demás a hacer lo mismo. Su muerte fue su último “sí” a la voluntad de Dios. Y su resurrección es la respuesta final de Dios a las fuerzas del mal y de la muerte.
