4 T-Shirt Design Contest The 2017 Camino de Santiago committee is calling all artists, future artists and creative parishioners! Enter the contest to create the 2017 Camino de Santiago T- Shirt and win a free registration, a t-shirt that you designed and $50. Your creation can be the face of the 2017 Camino de Santiago. Don't forget to include key elements of the Camino like the arrows, shell, Camino cross, rocks, and/or elements of our own church, etc. The contest will start the weekend of May and ends June 3-4. Hurry and submit your entry to Ann-Marie Blaney at Why Tithe with Envelopes or ParishPay? Why is it important to actually use envelopes (or ParishPay) to make your weekly contributions rather than just putting cash into the collection basket? Because somewhere down the line you will probably come to the parish in need of contribution verification, especially for income taxes purposes or to qualify for Catholic Tuition Rates at your child s Catholic School. We are able to track weekly donations only when our parishioners use their envelopes or utilize electronic fund transfer through ParishPay. Loose cash or checks do not get posted to our database. To have your tithing documented please be sure to use either the envelopes or ParishPay so we may properly record your contribution to the parish. When including a check in the donation envelope, please write your envelope number (which is also your Parish ID number) in the memo line of your check, as well as list the check number on the envelope.

This is not a family living on the fringes, its a scam.

5 JMJ 28 May 2017 My Dearest Parish Family, God be with us always. A Blessed Feast of Ascension to all. Congratulations to the families of those who receive First Communion in our Spanish Religious Education. After presiding at three Masses one after the other, then having a lunch meeting with a lovely couple whose Wedding Vows I will witness this coming July, then celebrating the Christening (Baptism) of four precious children Edward Jr., Hazel, Ruby and Autumn and then finally receiving Elijah the grandson of friends from my former parish in Anaheim... all last Sunday s event... I remember muttering to myself is yeah love is dynamic difficult but not impossible. Before our Lord ascended to Heaven, he had two parting words: one an assurance that we will never be alone even at the same breath He tells us to go and spread, be witnesses to all the world. We have gots a lot to do people, an expression y friend during seminary days would often say. It gives me so much joy, consolation and inspiration how people responded in the PSA Update and Appeal made last weekend. You have all been great in your willingness to come together so we can accomplish much. Hats off to Pat Walloch and Jeanine Sansone for being brave enough to speak to us. Surely that thermometer will see northern movement. Gratitude and blessings to all! I leave space for the Camino now; only after humbly asking that we pray for those receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation this coming weekend. God bless and take care. Love and prayers, 28 de mayo de 2017 Mi Querida Familia Parroquial, Que Dios este siempre con nosotros. Para todos una Bendita Festividad de la Ascensión. Felicidades a las familias de aquellos que recibieron la Primera Comunión de nuestro Catecismo en Español. Después de haber celebrado tres misas una tras otra, luego tener una comida de trabajo con una hermosa pareja de quien seré testigo de sus Votos de Boda este próximo julio, luego celebrar el Bautismo de cuatro preciosos niños; Edward Jr., Hazel, Ruby y Autumn y finalmente recibir a Elijah el nieto de amigos de mi previa parroquia en Anaheim todos los eventos del pasado domingo me recuerdo susurrando a mí mismo si que el amor MAY 21, 2017 es dinámico, difícil pero no imposible. Antes que el Señor ascendiera al Cielo, dejo dos palabras de despedida: la primera fue de una promesa, que nunca estaremos solos, y en el mismo respiro nos dice que vayamos y nos difundamos, para ser testigos en todo el mundo. Gente, tenemos mucho que hacer, era una expresión amigable durante mis días en el seminario que a menudo decíamos. Me da mucha alegría, consolación y inspiración en cómo la gente respondió en la actualización de la Campaña de Servicios Pastorales que les hice la semana pasada. Todos ustedes han sido grandiosos en su disponibilidad de venir juntos para que podamos lograr mucho. Me inclino el sombrero por Pat Wallach y Jeanine Sonsone, las cuales fueron tan valientes para hablar en frente de nosotros. Realmente el termómetro se dirigirá hacia arriba. Gratitud y bendiciones para todos! Le dejo el espacio para lo del Camino; solo después de pedirles humildemente que oremos por los que han de recibir el Sacramento de Confirmación esta próxima fin de semana. Dios los bendiga y cuídense. Amor y oraciones, Fr. Thomas Camino de Santiago Compostela What and Why? For the next three weeks we will answer the questions: What is the Camino, and, Why do Pilgrims walk the Camino? St James the Apostle traveled from Jerusalem to the Iberian Peninsula, now Spain, where he evangelized for approximately two years. In 44 CE, James returned to Jerusalem where King Herodes Agrippa tortured him to death, thus he become one of the first Christian martyrs. Here history gives way to legend as it is said that the king forbid the burial of James body, which was stolen by disciples, placed in a marble sarcophagus, and brought by boat to the Spanish coast in Galicia. The body was transported to a hillside north of Flavia and buried, remaining undiscovered for nearly 800 years. Once discovered through miraculous intervention, the Bishop of Flavia, decided to investigate. The Bishop found the tomb, containing the bodies of St. James and two of his followers, Athanasius and Theodore. A shrine was built/dedicated to St. James at Santiago de Compostela in the 9th century. Pilgrimages to the shrine became the most renowned of medieval pilgrimages, with those who returned from Compostela to carrying back with them a Galician scallop shell, as proof of their completion of the journey. The scallop shell became a Christian symbol for St. James, which many pilgrims wore as a sign to anyone on the road that they were pilgrims. Next week: Our Lady of the Pillar Two weeks: Tradition of Carrying a Stone Fr. Thomas Camino de Santiago Compostela Qué es? y Por qué? Durante las próximas tres semanas estaremos respondiendo a las preguntas: Qué es el Camino?, y, Por qué los peregrinos caminan por el Camino? * Santiago el Apóstol viajó de Jerusalén a la Península Ibérica, ahora España, donde evangelizó durante aproximadamente dos años. * En el año 44 AD, Santiago regresó a Jerusalén donde el rey Herodes Agrippa lo torturó hasta la muerte, por lo que se convirtió en uno de los primeros mártires cristianos. * Aquí la historia da paso a la leyenda, ya que se dice que el rey prohíbe el entierro del cuerpo de Santiago, que fue robado por discípulos, colocado en un sarcófago de mármol, y llevado por barco a la costa española en Galicia. * El cuerpo fue transportado a una ladera al norte de Flavia y enterrado, permaneciendo sin descubrir durante casi 800 años. * Una vez descubierto a través de una intervención milagrosa, el obispo de Flavia, decidió investigar. El Obispo encontró la tumba, que contenía los cuerpos de Santiago y dos de sus seguidores, Atanasio y Teodoro. * Un santuario fue construido y dedicado a Santiago en Santiago de Compostela en el siglo IX. Las peregrinaciones al santuario se convirtieron en las peregrinaciones medievales más renombradas, con los que regresaron de Compostela a llevar consigo una concha de vieira, como prueba de su finalización del viaje. * La concha de vieira se convirtió en un símbolo cristiano de Santiago, que muchos peregrinos usaban como una señal, y que mostraba a cualquier persona en el camino que ellos eran peregrinos. Próxima semana: Nuestra Señora del Pilar En dos semanas: La Tradición de llevar una piedra

8 Felicidades a todos los niños que este sábado 20 de mayo recibieron por primera vez a Jesús Sacramentado en su Primera Comunión. También felicitamos a sus padres, padrinos y demás familiares en esta ocasión tan especial. Perdonar no es un sentimiento, perdonar es una decisión! Para perdonar a una persona no tienes que sentirlo porque perdonar es un acto de la voluntad, es una decisión. Nuestra fe está basada en dos principios: El amor y el perdón. La palabra perdón en inglés se dice: For-give y en español per-dón. En otras palabras, el perdón es un don, y un don es un regalo. Cuando una persona guarda un resentimiento o rencor en su corazón el más afectado es la misma persona. Cuántos de nosotros guardamos rencor contra otra persona por muchos años y esta persona ni cuenta se da! En cambio, cuando damos el perdón a otro, los más beneficiados somos nosotros mismos. En el Evangelio de San mateo, capítulo 18, versículo 21, San pedro le pregunta a Jesús: Señor cuántas veces tengo que perdonar a mi hermano, si me hace algo malo? Hasta siete? Jesús le contesto: No te digo hasta siete veces, sino hasta setenta veces siete Hermano, Hermana, si has guardado rencor contra alguien te invito para que te des la oportunidad de perdonar a aquella persona que te hizo daño. Tal vez se trate de alguien que ya murió o se encuentra lejos. No importa cuánto tiempo ha pasado, solo invoca al Espíritu Santo para que, Él, que es el gran intercesor, interceda por ti para que puedas otorgar el perdón. Si la persona está lejos o simplemente no está, o incluso si esa persona está cerca de ti, ponte en la presencia de Dios y en contexto de oración escribe una carta a esta persona dándole el perdón. Luego, rompe o quema esa carta. Toma la decisión y perdónale! No esperes más! Perdona y serás una persona libre! Dios te bendiga!
