Greetings parishioners and to our many
visitors today and during the coming days! We
are celebrating Mardi Gras in Galveston style
before the rigors of Lent arrive this
Ash Wednesday.
I would like to express my sincere
appreciation and gratitude to the almost 200
generous volunteers who have offered their
help to pave the way for future parish and
Archdiocesan success as we and all 150
parishes advance the Archdiocesan Capital
Campaign. Together we will help prepare our
faith family for the long-term future of
advancing the mission of Jesus.
The willingness of you volunteers, over the
next few months, to make phone calls for
receptions, to help with reception set-up and
hospitality, to help with bulletin and invitation
stuffing, and to serve on the Parish Campaign
Committee will help the Archdiocesan Capital
Campaign live up to its title:
“Ignite: Our Faith. Our Mission”.
The great spirit of volunteerism in our parish
will contribute greatly to the Campaign’s focus
on supporting our long term future by focusing
on our parishes, our future priests, Catholic
Education, and Faith Formation.
May the Lord bless all our volunteers in this
Archdiocesan/Parish Capital Campaign
effort. Feel blessed to know that it is Jesus
who leads us forward in advancing his mission.
Peace to All!
Fr. E.J. Stein, OFM, Pastor

Ministerio Hispano
Queridos hermanos en Cristo,
Una pregunta, ¿la Eucaristía es un símbolo o una realidad? La enseñanza de la iglesia es
clara: con las palabras de la consagración, Cristo se convierte verdaderamente entre nosotros.
La sustancia del pan y el vino se cambia en la sustancia del cuerpo y sangre de Cristo. Sin
embargo, las apariencias del pan y del vino siguen siendo. Comer y beber el pan y el vino
consagrado (cuerpo y sangre de Cristo) muestra nuestra unidad con Cristo. Compartiendo en
esto también muestra nuestra unidad con los demás en Cristo. Para nosotros los católicos la
Eucaristía es una realidad y no es un símbolo.
“La presencia del verdadero Cuerpo de Cristo y de la
verdadera Sangre de Cristo en ese sacramento, no se conoce
por los sentidos, dice Santo Tomas, sino por la fe, la cual se
apoya en la autoridad de Dios. Por ello, comentando el texto
de San Lucas 22:19; Esto es mi Cuerpo que será entregado por
vosotros, San Cirilo declara: no te preguntes si es esto es
verdad, sino acoge más bien con la fe las palabras del Señor,
porque Él, que es la Verdad, no miente.” Catecismo n. 1381
el Evangelio de Hoy ~ Mt 6: 24-34
El Santísimo expuesto — la Capilla de La Virgen de Guadalupe
Hoy escuchamos “...no se preocupen por su vida, pensando que
comerán o con que se vestirán.” Esto no es un llamado a que seamos irresponsables, sino todo
lo contrario. Si nos preocupamos por la justicia de Dios, tener confianza en Él, todo lo demás
se pone en su lugar. Bien lo sabemos que cada día se presentan problemas y sólo con una fe
en el amor y cuidado de Dios podemos vivir felices. Tenemos que trabajar con ganas para que
Dios reine en nosotros. Que dios me los bendiga.
Su servidor,
Diacono Juan Carrillo
