That means that the Church considers it quite important. And so do we. I can recall as a child going into the church three times on All Souls Day. Each time I’d say an Our Father, a Hail Mary, and a Glory Be. I’d make sure to “go to Confession” within a week. I did that because we were told that was the way to get a Plenary Indulgence to get one of the Poor Souls into heaven. I have no idea if it is really that easy. I do know that it is good to pray for those who have gone before us. It is good for them and for us. I do know that the soul lives on after death. I do know that at the end of time in the Resurrection of the Dead we will all be together again. This time with bodies glorified by having participated in the Resurrection. Finally, I do know that our faith can take at least some of the sting out of death. Today is also a time to express our gratitude to our fellow parishioners who make the funeral an occasion for the Parish to minister to the Family. Thanks to the Funeral Choir, Heavenly Kitchen, Deacons, and Jonathan Alexander. I think we minister well and lovingly to these families. Last Sunday Mary Richter, our coordinator of RCIA, received a Certificate in the Lay Pastoral Ministry Program. Every time someone like Mary achieves an educational milestone I am humbled. All my serious study was done with no major responsibilities in life except to study. That was true for eight years of College and Seminary as well as my intensive studies of Spanish. Mary and others achieve these things in the midst of family and ministry and/ or work commitments. Incidentally, it is worth mentioning that both St. Joseph and St. Peter in Chains utilize our RCIA. Congratulations, Mary! READINGS FOR THIS WEEK Readings for the Week of November 2, 2014 Administrative action on deportation relief has been pledged for “after the November elections”. The Bishops Conference is sponsoring “call-in days” from Nov. 5 through Nov. 13. That is from the day after the national general elections to the Feast of St. Frances of Cabrini, the patroness of immigrants (Nov. 13th). The toll-free number to use to call the White House is 1-855-589-5698 and our message is simple: Protect as many immigrants and their families as possible from deportation. If you are concerned for the fate of many of your fellow parishioners, make the call.

JULIE BILLIART TODOS LOS FIELES DIFUNTOS LEER: Sabiduría 3:1-9, Salmo 27, Romanos 5:5-11, Juan 11:17-27 El Día de Muertos: Origen y Simbolismo El culto a la muerte en México no es algo nuevo, pues ya se practicaba desde fechas próximas al año 1800 a.C. Los evangelizadores cristianos de tiempos coloniales aceptaron en parte las tradiciones de los antiguos pueblos para poder implantar el cristianismo entre dichos pueblos. Los orígenes de la celebración del Día de Muertos en México son anteriores a la llegada de los españoles. Los rituales que celebran la vida de los ancestros se realizan en las antiguas civilizaciones por lo menos desde hace tres mil años. Cuando llegaron a América los españoles en el siglo XVI trajeron sus propias celebraciones del Día de Muertos cristianas y europeas, donde se recordaba a los muertos en el Día de Todos los Santos. Al convertir a los nativos del nuevo mundo se dio lugar a un sincretismo que mezcló las tradiciones europeas y prehispánicas, haciendo coincidir las festividades católicas del Día de todos los Santos (Nov 1) y Todas las Almas (Nov 2) con el festival similar mesoamericano, creando el actual Día de Muertos. Otros elementos influirían en la evolución de las actuales costumbres del Día de Muertos; por ejemplo, en el centro del país, las epidemias que durante siglos azotaron a la Ciudad de México llevaron a la creación de cementerios fuera de la ciudad y fue hasta 1961 que el gobierno se encargo de los entierros. Así mismo hacia 1859 se consolidó la costumbre de adornar las tumbas con flores y velas, visitar los panteones los días 1 y 2 de noviembre. El Pan de Muerto: El pan es una representación de la eucaristía y fue agregado por los evangelizadores españoles. Es un panecillo dulce que se hornea en diferentes figuras, desde simples formas redondas hasta cráneos, adornado con figuras del mismo pan en forma de hueso, se le espolvorea azúcar y se elabora con anís. Las Calaveras de Dulce: tienen escritos el nombre del difunto en la frente, son consumidas por parientes o amigos. (continuado al lado) Lecturas de la Semana - noviembre 3-8 Lunes: Filipenses 2:1-4, Salmo 131:1-3, Lucas 14:12-14 Martes: Filipenses 2:5-11, Salmo 22, Lucas 14:15-24 Miércoles: Sabidur ía 3:1-9, Salmo 23, Juan 6:37-40 Jueves: Filipenses 3:3-8, Salmo 105, Lucas 15:1-10 Viernes: Filipenses 3:17-4:1, Salmo 122, Lucas 16:1-8 Sábado: Filipenses 4:10-19, Salmo 112, Lucas 16:9-15 November 2, 2014 RETIRO PREMATRIMONIAL Y DE PAREJAS Fecha: 22 de Noviembre de 8:30am-5:00pm Dirección: Igl.

Después de misa habrá un pequeño convivio con merienda. Las Flores: Durante el período del 1 al 2 de noviembre las familias normalmente limpian y decoran las tumbas con coloridas coronas de flores de rosas, girasoles, entre otras, pero principalmente de cempsúchitl, las cuales se cree atraen y guían las almas de los muertos. Retrato de la persona recordada: El retrato del difunto sugiere el ánima que los visitará la noche del 2 de noviembre. Dicha imagen honra la parte más alta del altar. Se coloca de espaldas y frente a ella se coloca un espejo para que el difunto solo pueda ver el reflejo de sus deudos y estos vean a su vez únicamente al difunto. Doce cirios: Aunque pueden ser menos, tienen que ser en pares, y preferiblemente de color morado, con coronas y flores de cera. Los cirios, sobre todo si son morados, son señal de duelo. Los cuatro cirios en cruz representan los cuatro puntos cardinales, de manera que el ánima pueda orientarse hasta encontrar su camino y su casa aparte de agua y sal. Comida: Se coloca el alimento tradicional o el que era del agrado de los fallecidos se coloca para que el alma lo disfrute. Cruz: Utilizada en la mayoría de los altares, es un símbolo introducido por los evangelizadores españoles, con el fin de incorporar el catecismo a una tradición tan arraigada entre los indígenas, como la veneración de los muertos. Para recordarle su fe, ya que el Miércoles de Ceniza se le dice la frase: "Recuerda que polvo eres y en polvo te convertirás", con lo que se le recuerda que regresa a la tierra de la que salió. La cruz va en la parte superior del altar a un costado de la imagen del difunto y esta puede ser de sal, ceniza, tierra o cal.
