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.
Your children will learn more about their Catholic faith through
the daily faith lesson, new and inspiring music, great crafts and
delicious snacks. 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. Registration will
close on Monday, June 22nd, so don’t wait! If you need more

Priests’ Retirement Fund Collection
Father’s Day Weekend
Once a year, we are asked to remember the retired priests who
have served faithfully for many long years in the 90 parishes in
our diocese. The annual cost of retirement continues to grow,
as our compensation to the retired priests becomes more and
more realistic. We presently have 27 retired priests who have
served the parishes of the Diocese of Fresno. There will be a
second collection at all weekend Masses on June 20th & 21st to
support the retired priests of our diocese. Please be generous
with a Father’s Day Retirement donation and remember them in
your daily prayers!
THANK YOU!
The TCCOV Pro-Life Ministry would like to say "Thank You" to our
Priests, other ministries, communities, and all others who attended the

this participation made the Dinner a huge success. Please Pray for the
Unborn at one of our Pro-Life Rosaries. We pray the Pro-Life Rosary on

on the 3rd Monday of the month @ 6:15PM in Rm. 4 @ St. Mary's Parish
Center.
Attention Parishioners
Daily Mass at St. Mary’s on Fridays reverts

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.

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? La Iglesia Católica de Visalia está
buscando voluntarios adultos para ayudar en las misas

Se necesitan hombres y mujeres para ayudar a servir en el

Usted puede servir tan a menudo como quiera.

INTRODUCTION TO CATHOLICISM
First Step in Becoming Catholic
Are you unbaptized, and considering being baptized in the Catholic
faith? Have you already been baptized in another church and are now
considering becoming a Catholic? Are you a baptized Catholic who has
never been confirmed?
If your answer to any of these questions is “Yes” and you are at least
18 years old, Introduction to Catholicism might be just what you've been
looking for. It is the initial phase of the RCIA process, and is also call
Inquiry. It includes 9 sessions covering basic Catholic beliefs and practices in an informal setting where questions are welcomed. Our first
session will be Wednesday, May 27th, at 7:00 pm in Room 2 at the Parish Center on Garden Street, between Murray and Race.
If you have any questions, please contact Deacon Ken Ramage - 734
-8303; ken.ramage@sbcglobal.net, or Jack Martinesen – 303-8706.
