The Year of Mercy
The year of Mercy affords us many opportunities to
receive the plenary indulgence attached to this very
special time. Follow are upcoming dates to receive
the plenary indulgence. Please remember the
requirements for the indulgence which includes
passage through the front doors, receiving the
sacrament of reconciliation and Holy Eucharist, and
performing spiritual and corporal works of mercy.
The dates are as follows:
January 1, 2016:
Blessings, Dcn. Pat Necerato, Pastoral Associate January 6, 2016:

Year of Mercy
Do you know?
During the Year of Mercy 2015-2016, each faithful can obtain an indulgence:
What is the indulgence?
“An indulgence is a remission before God of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been
forgiven, which the faithful Christian who is duly disposed gains under certain prescribed conditions through
the action of the Church which, as the minister of redemption, dispenses and applies with authority the treasury
of the satisfactions of Christ and the saints” (Catechism 1471).
The way to gain a plenary indulgence is both very simple and very difficult at the same time, here you have the
external conditions:
1.
Go through the door of the Year of Mercy, which will be installed in a Church per Vicariate. This is a pilgrimage to the temple with the intention of starting a true conversion. Our main entrance door is des
ignated as the door of the Year of Mercy during the weekend, and the door at the chapel during
the weekdays.
2.
Go to Confession with this same intention.
3.
Receive Holy Communion with the desire to practice the mercy that Jesus taught us.
4.
Recite the Creed, or prayer expressed as the faith of the Church.
5.
Pray for the Holy Father and his intentions.
6.
The Pope also notes that you can obtain the Plenary Indulgence when we practice the Works of Mercy, because this way we become like Christ.
The Church also explains: “The hardest condition to gain the plenary indulgence is letting go of all attachments
to sin. Be free for God, loving our brothers and sisters. That is why gaining the indulgence is painful; it is sacrifice because it means breaking with all that separates us from God. The purpose of the Holy Year is that we work
every day so that our desires are God’s desires, or so that in our lives we are truly capable of doing God’s will,
loving our brothers and sisters.”
Pope Francis explains that the sick who cannot make this pilgrimage may obtain the grace of the Holy Year,
living this difficult year with joy, receiving the Eucharist, and attending Mass albeit electronically (Internet, TV,
Radio).
Our Church, Saint Catherine of Alexandria is chosen the
Temporary Shrine of this Hemet vicariate for the faithful to
receive the planery indulgence. More information will be
provided later.

Título: El Regalo de Amor
Tema: Hemos recibido el mayor regalo de todos, el regalo del amor de Dios.
Escritura: "Tan pronto como Elisabeth oyó el saludo de María, la criatura saltó en su vientre. Entonces Elisabeth,
llena del Espíritu Santo, exclamó:-¡Bendita tú entre las mujeres, y bendito el hijo que darás a luz! Pero, ¿cómo es
esto, que la madre de mi Señor venga a verme?" (Lucas 1:41-43).
En la mañana de Navidad nos despertaremos encontrando muchos paquetes debajo del árbol. Serán paquetes
envueltos en papeles de colores brillantes y amarrados con cintas y lazos bonitos. ¿Qué si hubiese un paquete
debajo del árbol envuelto en papel de estraza de color café claro y amarrado con un cordón...y el paquete tiene tu
nombre? ¿Escogerías ese paquete para abrirlo primero? ¡No lo creo! Después de todo, se supone que un regalo
tenga una envoltura bonita, ¿no es así?
Sabes, creo que por eso es que muchas personas no gozan del regalo que Dios les envió. El regalo de Dios no vino
envuelto en una bella envoltura. Dios envió a Jesús, su único Hijo, y nos lo dio como Su regalo a nosotros. La
madre de Jesús era una joven virgen, su padre terrenal era un carpintero pobre, no nació en un palacio precioso,
nació en un pesebre. No era una envoltura bonita, ¿no es cierto? Pero, ¿sabes qué? Fue el más grande regalo que
el mundo haya conocido. Fue el regalo de la salvación y ¡tenía tu nombre en él, y el tuyo, y el mío!
La Biblia nos dice que cuando María supo que había sido escogida para traer al hijo de Dios al mundo, se llenó
de gozo. Corrió a casa de Elizabeth a compartir las buenas nuevas. Cuando Elizabeth escuchó la noticia, gritó
a gran voz: "¡Bendita tú entre las mujeres, y bendito el hijo que darás a luz! Bendita eres porque creíste que el
Señor y harías lo que dijo."
Bueno, el Señor ha cumplido sus promesas para con nosotros también. Nos ha enviado el regalo de su amor, pero
muchas personas están tan ocupadas desenvolviendo sus bellamente envueltos regalos ofrecidos por este mundo
que han perdido de vista el mejor regalo del mundo. Tal vez sea porque vino envuelto en papel de estraza y un
cordón.
Querido Padre, te damos gracias por el gran amor que nos has demostrado al enviarnos a tu único hijo para ser
nuestro Salvador. En el nombre de Jesús oramos. Amén.
TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
This New Year’s Eve, at the turning of the year, you may
catch a glimpse of the old year, a cartoon figure of a hunched
old man with a sickle, Father Time. Where else but in this
column could you learn that this is in fact a pope? December
31 was in the old calendar the feast of St. Sylvester. Legend says
that Sylvester healed the Emperor Constantine of leprosy, and
presided at the liturgy of baptism for the grateful emperor.
In 314, he was chosen pope, and it fell to him to organize the
peacetime church, free at last from persecution. He founded
the Lateran Basilica, the cathedral of the Diocese of Rome.
In northern Europe “Sylvester Night” is a time of great
parties with eating, dancing, and singing—recalling perhaps
the joy of the church in the fresh air of Sylvester’s papacy. In
Poland, there was great fear as the year 1000 approached that
an immense dragon would devour the earth and set fire to the
heavens. The people prayed earnestly to St. Sylvester, trusting
that the saint would not permit such suffering on his feast day.
They’ve been celebrating ever since!
