Corpus Christi: June 7, 2015 “This is the blood of the covenant that the Lord has made with you” -Exodus 24:3-8 Pastor Reflection The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ Today the Church focuses on the Eucharist. Today’s readings remind us how connected to ancient blood sacrifices we are when offering our unbloody sacrifice. The reading from Exodus describes a solemn ritual designed so the Israelites would never forget their covenant with God. THANKYOU! Sincere thanks to all of those who remembered my priestly anniversary … for your prayers, cards and gifts. You are a true blessing. -Father Eric The reading from the Letter to the Hebrews turns us from those ancient animal sacrifices, the first efforts to worship the living God. Our sacrifice is the body and blood of the Son of God. Because of Christ we have a new covenant. The Gospel from Mark retells the establishment of that covenant, the familiar story of the Last Supper. Juxtaposed with the story of animal sacrifice as it is here, we are challenged to listen with new attention, to remember the great price paid for our salvation. Jesus gave his body and every drop of his blood for us. HOW SHALL WE MAKE A RETURN TO THE LORD? The ancient words of Psalm 116 ring out fresh and new in today’s responsorial psalm. When the psalmist asks how he or anyone can make a return to the Lord for all the good that God has done, he is echoing our prayer of wondrous gratitude. How can any of us ever make a return to the Lord or repay God in any way? In this psalm we are told what we are to do: We are to take up the cup of salvation and “call upon the name of the Lord” (Ps. 116:13). This primal need to give thanks and make a return to God prompts the Church to give us this solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, a celebration set apart from Holy Thursday, when, among other things, we commemorate Jesus Christ’s establishment of the Eucharist. That day, set in the context of the Easter Triduum, is busy with many symbols and actions. Today we turn our full attention to the body and blood of Christ, given to us in the forms of bread and wine. THE CUP OF SALVATION Jesus, in Mark’s Gospel, identifies the cup of salvation for us. It is the cup of his blood, the blood of the covenant. This blood fulfills the old covenant, the one marked by Moses when he sprinkled the Israelites with the blood of sacrificed animals. Now we take up the cup of the new covenant, the cup of salvation, and we call upon the name of the Lord. How can this action make a return to the Lord? Only this way: In this action we offer to God the only perfect gift. Alone we are nothing. It is Christ who is the perfect offering. It is through the total gift of his body and blood that we have been redeemed. We are looking forward to a great week of Cathletics! Registration forms are available at the church office or you can download the forms from the parish website, www.tccov.org. The program will run from July 20-24, 8:30 a.m. until noon each day and is designed for participants ages 3 years through 6th grade.

We are excited about this year’s program which offers lots of great ways for your children to keep God and our Church close to their hearts. They can use lots of help - teens in grades 7-12 and adults are needed to assist in the program with crafts, snacks, fun & games, as teachers, aides or wherever needed.

MARRIAGE & FAMILY LIFE Continued “When families bring children into the world, train them in faith and sound values, and teach them to contribute to society, they become a blessing in our world,” Pope Francis has said. Throughout our history, our nation has stood by the fundamental right of parents to raise their children according to their own beliefs – a right upheld by numerous U.S. Supreme Court cases. “It is cardinal with us that the custody, care and nurture of the child reside first in the parents,” the high court stated in Prince v. Commonwealth of Massachusetts (1944). Therefore, it said, Court decisions “have respected the private realm of family life which the state cannot enter.” In Troxel v. Granville (2000), the justices wrote, “The interest of parents in the care, custody, and control of their children is perhaps the oldest of the fundamental liberty interests recognized by this Court.” Parental rights, however, though fundamental, are not absolute. They have limits, as also articulated by the courts. “Neither rights of religion nor rights of parenthood are beyond limitation,” the Prince ruling stated. Parental rights can be restrained to protect a child. The state, it said, may restrict parents’ control by requiring school attendance, regulating or prohibiting child labor and in many other ways. California law also states that “a parent's fundamental right” to raise his or her children as the parent sees fit, “while compelling, is not absolute.” The state has legitimately assumed authority over parents in protecting children from child abuse and neglect and in deciding custody issues. In addition, the legal doctrine of “in loco parentis,” a Latin term meaning “in the place of a parent,” and rooted in English common law, refers to the legal responsibility of a person or organization to perform some of the functions or responsibilities of a parent. Under this concept, a non-biological parent, such as a legal guardian, can be given the legal rights and responsibilities of the parent, under certain conditions. Similarly, courts have upheld the right of schools, under this doctrine, to restrain and discipline students, as well as the duty of school officials to protect students from harm. But at what point does the state interest outweigh the parental right? And how far can government go in infringing on a fundamental freedom? In order to be constitutional, any law intruding on a fun- damental liberty must meet a “compelling interest,” and must be “narrowly tailored,” using the “least restrictive” means possible, according to various high court rulings. The question of how much power the state can use in restricting parental rights is currently the subject of a major debate in California. Proposed legislation, SB 277 (Pan, D- Sacramento and Allen, D-Santa Monica), would remove the personal belief exemption from the vaccination requirement for children in public and private schools and certain other facilities, except for those with a medical exemption. The law would not apply to students in home schooling or independent study. The Supreme Court has upheld the right of states to implement reasonable regulations to control communicable diseases. The question about SB 277 is whether banning the freedom of parents to opt out based on their personal beliefs is “reasonable.” Some considerations based on principles under prior court rulings include: Is there a demonstrated need that warrants this particular form of government intrusion on parental rights? Whatever conclusion is reached on SB 277 there is no doubt that there has been a troubling erosion of parental rights in California in ways that many believe do not protect, but often harm, children: • A girl under age 18 cannot get a cavity filled or an aspirin from a school nurse without a parent’s approval, but a doctor can perform an abortion on a young girl without informing a parent. • Children as young as 12 in California can obtain an HPV vaccine for sexually transmitted diseases without parental permission, under a 2011 law. • Parents cannot access the records of teenagers who had an abortion, or are receiving contraceptive services, HIV/AIDS services or treatment for communicable diseases without the minor’s consent. • Another 2012 law banned licensed therapists from providing therapy for children with same-sex attraction or gender confusion that does not affirm the behavior, even if agreed to by parents and family. - See more at: http://www.cacatholic.org/policies -issues/marriage-and-family-life/primer-parental -rights-California#sthash.PjDvd8QN.dpuf From time to time ARS’s (by a) “Wing and Prayer” group meets to help with miscellaneous tasks for our ministry and church.

Corpus Christi: 07 de Junio de 2015 “El Señor hace una alianza con su pueblo y la sella con sangre” -Exodo 24:3-8 ¿Está ssiendollamado? Pastor Reflexión El Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo Las antiguas palabras del Salmo 116 resuenan frescas y nuevas en el salmo responsorial de hoy. Cuando el salmista pregunta como él o alguien puede pagarle a Dios por todo el bien que Dios le ha hecho, está haciendo eco a nuestra oración de maravillada gratitud. ¿Cómo puede alguno de nosotros recompensar o pagarle a Dios? En este salmo, el salmista nos dice lo que debemos hacer: Levantaré el cáliz de salvación e “invocaré el nombre del Señor” (Salmo 116:13). Esta necesidad primordial de dar gracias y pagarle a Dios motiva a la Iglesia a darnos esta solemnidad del Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo, una celebración separada del Jueves Santo cuando, entre otras cosas, conmemoramos el establecimiento de la Eucaristía. Ese día, situado en el contexto del triduo de Pascua, está ocupado por muchos símbolos y acciones. Hoy, damos toda nuestra atención al Cuerpo y a la Sangre de Cristo, entregados a nosotros en forma de pan y vino. LA COPA DE SALVACIÓN En el Evangelio de Marcos, Jesús identifica para nosotros la copa de salvación. Es la copa de su sangre, la sangre de la alianza. Esta sangre cumple la antigua alianza, aquella que fue marcada por Moisés cuando salpicó a los israelitas con la sangre de los animales sacrificados. Ahora alzamos la copa de la nueva alianza, la copa de salvación e invocamos el nombre del Señor. ¿Cómo puede esta acción ser un pago al Señor? Sólo de esta manera: en esta acción ofrecemos a Dios el único regalo perfecto. Solos, somos nada. Cristo es la ofrenda perfecta. Es mediante el regalo total de su cuerpo y sangre que somos redimidos. Lecturas de hoy: Ex 24:3–8; Sal 116:12–13, 15–18; Heb 9:11–15; Mc 14:12–16, 22–26 ¿Estás siendo llamado a dar de su tiempo y talento para servir a los demás?
