Mass Intentions
Holy Family Sunday
December 26, 2015 – January 1, 2016
Many people tell me that they come from a
“dysfunctional family”. I have no idea what
that means. I don’t even know what a normal family is.
What defines a normal family? The Holy Family?
When I reflect on the Holy Family (given what they had
to face) I cannot help but come up with such
descriptors as: uncertain, threatened, and frightened.
The Holy Family regularly found themselves dealing
with the aforementioned.
At the outset Joseph feared Mary would be stoned
because she was with child before marriage. They both
feared paranoid King Herod who was intent on killing
baby Jesus. Joseph and Mary ran and took only what
they could carry. They fled on foot nearly 200 miles to
Egypt. They had to avoid Roman patrols that searched
for them. They had to cross the border. They were
suddenly plunged into a foreign and hostile country
whose language and culture were unknown to them.
They had no money, no job, no home, and no friends.
They later returned but were so afraid of Herod’s son
they bypassed Bethlehem and continued on to the
northern region of Galilee. 300 miles on foot! Jesus was
then raised in a dangerous village named Nazareth. A
place with no walls or protection from desert thieves
and marauders. Later, on pilgrimage from Nazareth to
Jerusalem they lost pre-teen Jesus. Mary and Joseph
were distracted by the activity of the caravan with
whom they traveled. Nearly five days later they found
Jesus in the Temple. I suspect 12-year-old Jesus was not
too happy about being forgotten.

Ladies and gentlemen this was NOT a normal family.
Yet, through all of the aforementioned they were
connected to God. This is why they were Holy. God’s
favor was with them and Mary and Joseph NEVER
forgot this. God communicated His will for them in the
context of dreams, angels and prayer. Mary and Joseph
were led, guided, strengthened and encouraged by the
Spirit of God. Life was hard, dangerous and
unpredictable but they stayed connected to God. They
did not give up and courageously persevered.
My friends, family life is hard. The challenges that
confront us (socially, spiritually, financially, health wise)
are frequently unseen and unexpected. Today we are
reminded that it is precisely at these moments when
life is uncertain, unstable and perhaps even dangerous
that we stay in close connection to our Loving God.
Pastor’s Corner (cont’d)
As Christians of the Catholic tradition it is in the
moments of great difficulty and uncertainty that we stop
and pray and come to mass and are strengthened by
the Holy Eucharist. EMMANUEL: God is with us. Don’t
forget this!! May his presence guide and strengthen you
this Jubilee Year of Mercy.

LIFETEEN® and Confirmation News
Protecting Our Children
Take a time out to communicate. Sometimes, kids
need a place to go where they can say what they want,
and they won’t be immediately punished or have to deal
with a negative reaction. It’s important to make sure
your child has such a space or time – after dinner
conversations, an ice cream spot, riding home from
school – where they can tell you what’s on their mind,
good or bad, and you can just listen and discuss,
without taking the instant parental approach. If your
children feel safe talking to you openly, you are better
equipped to notice and handle any red flags in their
lives. For a copy of the VIRTUS® article “Modeling Good
Communication,” email:
→ Confirmation Year 1 and 2 meets on Monday Nights
from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

Masses: one at 10:00 am and one at 2:00 pm.

Vida Familiar
Información Parroquial
La vida familiar es sagrada, pero no faltan las
dificultades. Este puede ser el mensaje más importante
que encontramos en las lecturas de hoy. Si Jesús, María y
José pueden tropezar de vez en cuando – desconectarse
– entonces no nos debe sorprender cuando eso mismo
nos ocurre a nosotros también. Y los padres dondequiera
que estén (hijos también) pueden ver el parecido – y
hasta consolarse – con el relato bíblico que habla de
María y José después de que Jesús les explica porqué se
quedó atrás en el templo. Escucharon sus palabras, nos
dice Lucas, “pero ellos no comprendieron lo que les
acababa de decir” (Lucas 2:50). ¡Amén! Sin embargo,
Jesús sí se va con ellos para la casa, y continúa creciendo
bajo su cuidado.

Protegiendo a Los Niños
Tome un tiempo para comunicarse. Algunas veces
los niños necesitan un lugar donde puedan ir y decir lo
que quieran, y donde no serán castigados
inmediatamente o donde tengan que lidiar con una
reacción negativa. Es importante asegurar que su hijo o
hija tenga tal espacio o tiempo, que puede ser después
de las conversaciones de la cena, un lugar donde vaya
a comer helado, o el trayecto de la escuela a la casa,
donde él o ella puedan decirle lo que piensan, bueno o
malo, y que usted sólo pueda escucharlos y discutir, sin
tomar ninguna decisión inmediata. Si sus hijos se
sienten seguros al platicar con usted abiertamente,
usted estará mejor equipado/a para notar y manejar
cualquier dificultad en sus vidas. Para una copia del

Communication,” (Modelando buena comunicación)
