YEAR OF MERCY
December 8, 2015 November 20, 2016
The Epiphany of the Lord
`
In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Epiphany celebrates God’s mercy shining on
the magi from a guiding star. Their
kingdoms were far from Jerusalem, their religions
far from God’s covenant with Israel. At first the star
led the magi to Jerusalem, where they could
“recalculate” their quest with the help of God’s own
“GPS,” the Jewish scriptures. How challenging and
humbling for the magi to discover that they would
find the world’s Messiah not in a palace but with a
poor couple in an insignificant village. That’s where
God’s mercy, shining in the star, led the magi to
worship Jesus, the Prince of Peace. Today the magi
invite us to “recalculate” our life’s journey during
this Jubilee Year—to follow the star of God’s mercy
along the way of humble love, to discover a renewed
personal relationship with Jesus ourselves and so
become “guiding stars” leading other seekers to find
Jesus, too.
La Epifanía del Señor
En este Año Jubilar de la Misericorida, la Epifanía
celebra la misericordia de Dios brillando sobre los
reyes magos desde la estrella que los guía. Sus
reinos estaban muy lejos de Jerusalén, sus religiones
muy lejos de la alianza de Dios con Israel. Al principio la estrella guió a los magos a Jerusalén en
donde ellos podrían “recalcular” su búsqueda con la
ayuda del propio “GPS” de Dios, las Escrituras judías. Que humilde y consternado debió ser el momento en que los magos vieron al Mesías del mundo
no en un palacio sino con una pareja pobre en un
pueblito insignificante. Ahí es donde está la misericordia de Dios, brillando en la estrella que guió a los
magos a adorar a Jesús, el Príncipe de la Paz. Hoy
los reyes magos nos invitan a “recalcular” nuestro
camino de vida durante este Año Jubilar, siguiendo
la estrella de la misericordia de Dios a lo largo del
camino de amor humilde, para descubrir una relación personal renovada con Jesús hacia nosotros
mismos para que podamos convertirnos “estrellas
guías” dirigiendo también a otros buscadores a encontrar a Jesús.

PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN
DID YOU KNOW?
Monitor online activity on all devices - In the past,
parents had been advised to place the family computer in an open area such as a kitchen or family
room so that they may easily monitor activity. Today, most social contact, especially among young
people, is conducted almost exclusively on smart
phones and tablets. Technology continues to rapidly
change. All of us must continue our efforts to stay
abreast of the many new mobile device apps that
may be used by young people to communicate with
others and could potentially be used to manipulate or
abuse them. For a copy of the VIRTUS® article
“Mobile App Danger,” email jvienna@laarchdiocese.org
¿SABIA USTED?
Monitoree en línea la actividad de todos los aparatos - En el pasado, se ha adver tido a los padr es
de familia que coloquen la computadora de la familia en un área abierta como la cocina o el cuarto de
descanso familiar para que ellos puedan monitorear
con facilidad toda actividad. En la actualidad, la
mayor parte del contacto social, especialmente entre
los jóvenes, es conducida casi exclusivamente a través de los teléfonos celulares y las tabletas. La tecnología continua cambiando rápidamente. Todos
debemos continuar nuestros esfuerzos de mantenernos informados sobre las muchas nuevas aplicaciones para aparatos móviles que pueden ser usados por
las personas jóvenes para comunicarse con otros, y
que potencialmente pueden ser usados para manipular o abusar a jóvenes. para una copia del articulo en
Virtus “Mobile App Danger” (Peligro de las aplicaciones móviles) por favor envíe un email a jvienna@la-archdiocese.org.

YOUR PRO-LIFE MINUTE …
The pro-life message will not harm our
children. What will harm them is the proabortion mentality, which will train them to
think that human life is a disposable item, and if unchallenged, could lead them to an abortion mill
someday. Respect for all life must start with the
young.
