Our Lady of Malibu Catholic Community
October 19. 2014
Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time
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 Traditions
When the fathers of the Second Vatican Council met
to discuss the sacrament of penance, they were required
to draw up a new rite, including several forms. The hot
button for debate was so-called “general absolution,” by
which a penitent could be absolved of sin without
confessing to a priest. This was a difficult debate,
compounded by widely varying traditions in both East
and West. Some were surprised to learn that the Holy
See had already given permission, during the First and
Second World Wars, for this form. In 1944 the Vatican
issued a decree saying this form was valid under extreme
conditions, which bishops in mission lands and Latin
America took as a kind of “blanket permission.”
Thus, the fathers of the Council were alarmed to
find this practice fairly widespread, not only in war, but
in peaceful places with huge numbers of faithful and few
priests. Although they eventually produced a ritual with
three different forms, the forms are not considered equal,
and the enriched and revised individual form is
preferred. The enrichments include a welcome of the
penitent, a sign of the cross with an encouragement to
trust in God’s compassion, new texts rich in the Word of
God, praise for God’s mercy, and a dismissal.

In the Catholic Church? We have a special process for
adults to help them understand what it means to be a
Catholic Christian and whether they are being called by
God to live as Catholics. If you are interested, contact
Sr. Brigid at the rectory (310-456-2361).
Mexico Mission
Thanks to your support, we had a successful trip to Tijuana on September 20th. We distributed food to 300
families and over 260 backpacks and school supplies
were handed out to the local children.
We have set the date for our next trip for January 3,
2015 and because of the holidays we are preparing early
and would like to start collecting goods now. We are
asking for canned goods (tuna, soup, vegetables, fruit),
juice packs, dry pasta, hard candy, peanut butter and
jelly; things that can be easily stored for a few
months. Of course, you can bring any of the items
listed on the grocery bags which are at the back of the
church. We also take monetary donations which we use
to purchase food to compliment your donations.
It is your continued support that enables us to bring this
much needed help to our less fortunate brothers and
sisters in Tijuana.
