Palm Sunday
March 20, 2016
Pastor’s Corner
Holy Week and Easter Triduum
Holy Week is the last week of Lent. It is the week we commemorate and enact the suffering (Passion) and death of Jesus through various observances and services of worship. While some church traditions focus specifically on the events of the
last week of Jesus’ life, many of the liturgies symbolize larger themes that marked Jesus’ entire ministry. In Catholic tradition,
the conclusion to the week is called the Easter Triduum (a triduum is a space of three days usually accompanying a church festival or holy days that are devoted to special prayer and observance).
Palm Sunday
This Sunday observes the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem that was marked by the crowds who were in Jerusalem for Passover waving palm branches and proclaiming Him as the messianic king. The Gospels tell us that Jesus rode into the
city on a donkey, enacting the prophecy of Zechariah 9:9, and in so doing emphasized the humility that was to characterize the
Kingdom He proclaimed. The irony of His acceptance as the new Davidic King (Mark 11:10) by the crowds who would only
five days later cry for His execution should be a sobering reminder of the human tendency to want God on our own terms. This
Sunday is also known as Passion Sunday to commemorate the beginning of Holy Week and Jesus’ final agonizing journey to
the cross. The English word passion comes from a Latin word that means "to suffer," the same word from which we derive the
English word patient.
Maundy Thursday/Holy Thursday
Maundy Thursday, also known as “Holy Thursday” is the Thursday of Passion Week, one day before Good Friday.
Maundy Thursday is the name given to the day on which Jesus celebrated the Passover with His disciples, known as the Last
Supper. Two important events are the focus of Maundy Thursday. First, Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with His disciples and
thereby instituted the Eucharist (Luke 22:19-20). Second, Jesus washed the disciples’ feet as an act of humility and service,
thereby setting an example that we should love and serve one another in humility (John 13:3-17).
The word “Maundy” is derived from the Latin word for “command.” The “Maundy” in Maundy Thursday refers to the
command Jesus gave to the disciples at the Last Supper, that they should love and serve one another.
Good Friday
Good Friday is the Friday immediately preceding Easter Sunday. It is celebrated traditionally as the day on which Jesus
was crucified and had died. Why is Good Friday referred to as “good”? What the Jewish authorities and Romans did to Jesus
was definitely not good (see Matthew chapters 26-27). However, the results of Christ’s death are very good! Romans 5:8, “But
God demonstrates His own love for us in this: “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Monetary offerings collected today will be sent to the Holy Land to support the needs of Christians who struggle daily
to survive in conditions marred by violence and strife and also to maintain shrines in our Lord’s place of birth, agony, death and
resurrection.
Holy Saturday
Holy Saturday is the name given to the day between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Some Christians recognize this
day as the seventh day of Holy Week, the day on which Jesus “rested” from His work of providing salvation for the world. Holy
Saturday is the day Jesus remained in the tomb where He had been buried following His crucifixion.
Easter Vigil
The Easter Vigil liturgy is the most beautiful liturgy in the Roman Catholic Church. Although celebrated Holy Saturday
evening, it is the dramatic Easter vigil liturgy that marks the beginning of Easter. We are awaiting our master's return with our
lamps full and burning, so that He will find us awake and seat us at His table (cf. Luke 12:35ff). All Catholics should try to attend this beautiful service. It is in the Easter Vigil that we welcome adult new members to the faith in the Sacrament of Baptism
and also administer the Sacraments Confirmation and Eucharist to them. The vigil is divided into four parts: (1)Service of
Light; (2)Liturgy of the Word; (3)Liturgy of Baptism; and (4) Liturgy of the Eucharist.
God bless!!! Fr. Elmer

Serra Daily Prayer for priestly and religious vocations:
Jesus, Lord of the harvest, Look with love on this portion of your vineyard. Bless the Diocese of San Diego with more priests to shepherd your people, Priests with hearts like
your own. Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us.
Pray for Priests and Vocations “Now we ask you to respect those who work hard among you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work.” (1 Thess. 5:12,
13, NIV) When we pray for vocations for the priesthood, diaconate and religious, we actually pray for ourselves, since holy priests, deacons and religious should result in a
holier people. When we pray for these servants of Christ, we also win the favor of Christ, for we, in so praying, are furthering His work. By praying for vocations we are helping our children and our children's children because we are using a meritorious means of preserving our faith for them. “Now we ask you to respect those who work hard
among you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work.” (1 Thess. 5:12, 13, NIV)

You taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father,
and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him. Show us
your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being
enslaved by money; the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking
happiness only in created things; made Peter weep after his
betrayal, and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.
Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman: “If you knew the gift of God!”
You are the visible face of the invisible Father, of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy: let the Church be your visible face in the
world, its Lord risen and glorified. You willed that your ministers would also be
clothed in weakness in order that they may feel compassion for those in
ignorance and error: let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved,
and forgiven by God. Send Your Spirit And Consecrate Every One Of Us With Its
Anointing. So The Jubilee of Mercy May Be A Year Of Grace From The Lord.
And Your Church.
With Renewed Enthusiasm, May We Bring Your Good News To The Poor. Proclaim Liberty To Captives And The Oppressed, And Restore Sight To The Blind.
We Ask This Through The Intercession Of Mary, o Mercy, and You who livea and
reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever Amen.
“A Time to Heal, to Help, to Forgive."
Pope Francis “ Five Finger Prayer”
1. The thumb is the closes finder to you. So start praying
for those who are closest to you. They are the persons
easiest to remember. To pray for our dear ones is a “Sweet
Obligation,.”
2. The next finger is the index. Pray for those who teach
you, instruct you and heal you. They need the support and
wisdom to show direction to others. Always keep them in
your prayers.
3. The following finger is the tallest. It reminds us of our leaders the governors
and those who have authority. They need God's guidance.
4. The fourth finger is the ring finger. Even though it may surprise you, it is our
weakest finger. It should remind us to pray for the weakest, the sick or those
plagued by problems. They need your prayers.
5. And finally we have our smallest finger, the smallest of all . Your pinkie
should remind you to pray for yourself. When you are done praying for the other
four groups, you will be able to see your own needs but in the proper perspective,
and also you will be able to pray for your own needs in a better way.
CATHOLIC MEN’S FELLOWSHIP!

REZO PARA SACERDOTES....Jesús, reza por tu sacerdote fiel y ferviente; Por tus sacerdotes infieles y tibios; Por tus sacerdotes que trabajan en casa o en un pais extranjero y en misiónes distantes. Por tu sacerdote tentado; Por tus sacerdotes solos y solitarios; Por tus sacerdotes jóvenes; Por tus sacerdotes agonizantes; por las almas de tus
sacerdotes en el Calvario. Pero sobre todo, te recomiendo a los sacerdotes los más queridos a mí: el sacerdote que me bautizó; los sacerdotes que me exoneraron de mis pecados; los sacerdotes en cuyas misas que asistí y quién me dan Tu Cuerpo y Sangre en la Sagrada Comunión; los sacerdotes que me enseñaron e instruyeron; Todos los sacerdotes a quien soy endeudado de cualquier otro modo (sobre todo a...). Guárdalos cerca de tu corazón. Amén. Oración Diaria por las Vocaciones: Jesús de la coseha, mira
con amor a esta porción de tu viña. Bendice la Diócesis de San Diego Bendito sea el Señor, porque él ha escuchado el sonido de mi escrito: "el Señor es mi fortaleza y mi escudo. En él confía en mi corazón, y encontrar ayuda; a continuación, mi corazón exultante y con mi hijo le doy fuerza mi escudo . En él confía en mi corazón, y encontrar ayuda;
a continuación, mi corazón exultante, y con mi canción le doy gracias. Salmo 28:6 con más sacerdotes que pastoreen a tu pueblo, sacerdotes con un corazón semejante al tuyo.
María, Madre de la Iglesia, intercede por nosotros.

Oración para el Año de la Misericordia
Señor Jesucristo,
Tú nos has enseñado a ser misericordiosos como el
Padre del cielo, y nos has dicho que quien te ve, lo ve
también a Él. Muéstranos tu rostro y obtendremos la
salvación.
Tu mirada llena de amor liberó a Zaqueo y a Mateo de
la esclavitud del dinero; a la adúltera y a la Magdalena
del buscar la felicidad solamente en una creatura;
hizo llorar a Pedro luego de la traición, y aseguró el Paraíso al ladrón arrepentido.
Haz que cada uno de nosotros escuche como propia la palabra que dijiste a
la samaritana: ¡Si conocieras el don de Dios!
Tú eres el rostro visible del Padre invisible, del Dios que manifiesta su omnipotencia sobre todo con el perdón y la misericordia: haz que, en el mundo,
la Iglesia sea el rostro visible de Ti, su Señor, resucitado y glorioso.
Tú has querido que también tus ministros fueran revestidos de debilidad
para que sientan sincera compasión por los que se encuentran en la ignorancia o en el error: haz que quien se acerque a uno de ellos se sienta esperado,
amado y perdonado por Dios.
Manda tu Espíritu y conságranos a todos con su unción para que el Jubileo
de la Misericordia sea un año de gracia del Señor y tu Iglesia pueda, con
renovado entusiasmo, llevar la Buena Nueva a los pobres proclamar la libertad a los prisioneros y oprimidos y restituir la vista a los ciegos.
Te lo pedimos por intercesión de María, Madre de la Misericordia,
a ti que vives y reinas con el Padre y el Espíritu Santo por los siglos de los
siglos. Amén.
“Un tiempo para Sanar, para Ayudar, para Perdonar"

1.El dedo gordo es el buscador mas cerca a usted.
En ese caso así que empieza a orar por los que están
más cerca de usted. Son las personas más fáciles de
recordar. Orar por nuestros seres queridos es una
'dulce Obligación ,.'
2.El próximo dedo es el índice. Oren por los que os
enseñe, dará instrucciones y sanar. Ellos necesitan el
apoyo y la sabiduría para mostrar la dirección a los demás. Siempre mantenga en sus oraciones.
3.El siguiente dedo es el más alto. Nos recuerda de nuestros líderes
gobernantes y los que tienenautoridad. Ellos necesitan la guía de Dios.
4. El cuarto dedo es el dedo anular. A pesar de que puede sorprender, es nuestro dedo más débil. Se debe recordarnos orar por los más débiles,
los enfermos o los plagado de problemas. Necesitan sus oraciones.
5. Y finalmente tenemos nuestro dedo más pequeño, el más
pequeño de todos. Su meñique debe recordarle a rezar por ti mismo. Cuando
haya terminado de orar por los otros cuatro grupos, usted será capaz de ver
sus propias necesidades, sino en la perspectiva adecuada, y también será
capaz de orar por sus propias necesidades de una mejor manera.

Quinto Domingo de la Cuaresma
20 de marzo, 2016
Esquina del Pastor
Holy Week and Easter Triduum
La Semana Santa es la última semana de Cuaresma. Es la semana en cual conmemoramos y promulgar el sufrimiento
(pasión) y la muerte de Jesús a través de varias observaciones y servicios de culto. Mientras que algunas tradiciones de la iglesia
se centran específicamente en los acontecimientos de la última semana de la vida de Jesús, muchas de las liturgias simbolizan
grandes temas que marcaron entero el ministerio de Jesús. En la tradición Católica, la conclusión a la semana se llama el Triduo
Pascual (un triduo es un espacio de tres días por lo general acompaña a una celebración de la iglesia o días Santos festivos que
se dedican a la oración y la observancia especial).
Domingo de Ramos
Este domingo observa la entrada triunfal de Jesús en Jerusalén que estaba marcado por las multitudes que estaban en
Jerusalén para la Pascua agitando ramas de palma y lo proclama como el rey mesiánico. Los Evangelios nos dicen que Jesús
entró en la ciudad en un asno, la promulgación de la profecía de Zacarías 9 9, y al hacerlo, hizo hincapié en la humildad que fue
caracterizar el Reino que Proclamó. La ironía de su aceptación como el nuevo Rey Davídico (Marcos 11:10) por las multitudes
que lo haría sólo cinco días despues gritában por Su ejecución debe ser un recordatorio aleccionador de la tendencia humana a
querer a Dios en nuestros propios términos. Este domingo también se conoce como Domingo de la Pasión para conmemorar el
inicio de la Semana Santa y el agónico viaje final a de Jesús a la cruz. La palabra Inglés pasión viene de una palabra latina que
significa 'sufrir', la misma palabra de que se deriva la palabra Ingles paciente.
Jueves Santo/o Jueves Maundy
Es el jueves de la Semana de la Pasión, un día antes del Viernes Santo. Jueves Santo es el nombre dado a la fecha en que Jesús
celebró la Pascua con sus discípulos, conocido como la Última Cena. Dos eventos importantes son el foco de Jueves Santo.
En primer lugar, Jesús celebró la Última cena con sus discípulos y con ello instituyó la Eucaristía (Lucas 22, 19-20). En segundo lugar, Jesús lavó los pies de los discípulos como un acto de humildad y servicio, ofreciendo un ejemplo que debemos amar y
servir mutuamente y con humildad (Juan 13 3-17).
La palabra 'Maundy' se deriva de la palabra latina para 'mandamiento'. “Maundy” en el Jueves Santo se refiere a la orden de Jesús a los discípulos en la última cena, que deben amar y servir el uno al otro.
El Viernes Santo
El Viernes Santo es el viernes de precedente del Domingo de Pascua. Tradicionalmente se celebra como el día en que Jesús fue
crucificado y murió. ¿Por qué el Viernes Santo se refiere como 'bueno'? Lo que las autoridades judías y los romanos hicieron a
Jesús definitivamente no era buena (veánse Mateo capítulos 26-27). Sin embargo, los resultados de la muerte de Cristo son muy
buenos! Romanos 5:8, 'Pero Dios demuestra su amor por nosotros en esto que siendo aún pecadores, Cristo murió por nosotros.'
Ofertas monetario recogidas hoy serán enviados a la Tierra Santa para apoyar las necesidades de los cristianos que
luchan diariamente para sobrevivir en condiciones marcadas por la violencia y los conflictos, y también para mantener santuarios en el lugar de nacimiento, la agonía, la muerte y la resurrección.
Sábado Santo
El Sábado Santo es el nombre dado al día entre el Viernes Santo y Domingo de Pascua. Algunos cristianos reconocen este día
como el séptimo día de la Semana Santa, el día en que Jesús 'descansó' de su labor de proporcionar la salvación para el mundo.
El Sábado Santo es el día que Jesús permaneció en la tumba donde había sido enterrado después de su crucifixión.
Vigilia de Pascua
La liturgia de la Vigilia de Pascua es la más bella liturgia en la Iglesia Católica Romana. Aunque celebrádo el Sábado Santo
por la noche, es la dramática vigilia de Pascua la liturgia que marca el inicio de la Pascua. Estamos a la espera del regreso de
nuestro principal con nuestras lámparas ardiente y brillantes.
por lo que Él nos encuentre despiertos y asiento en su mesa (cf. Lucas 12 35ff). Todos los católicos deben tratar de asistir a este
hermoso servicio. Es en la Vigilia de Pascua que damos la bienvenida a nuevos miembros adultos de la fe en el Sacramento del
Bautismo y también se administra los Sacramentos de la Confirmación y la Eucaristía a ellos. La vigilia se divide en cuatro
partes (1) Servicio de la Luz; (2) Liturgia de la Palabra; (3) Liturgia del Bautismo; y (4) Liturgia de la Eucaristía.
Que Dios los Bendiga!!! Padre Elmer
