PASTOR’S CORNER
For those of you who were not here last Sunday, we are re-printing the
Pastor’s Letter from last weekend on why there has been a change in our
sanctuary starting this First Sunday of Advent.
In these past five months that I have been here, I have been
keenly observing and finding ways on how we can enhance our
liturgical celebrations, taking into account all the elements that
affect the liturgy. The celebration of the Eucharist is the most
important communal act that we do and the most precious gift that
God has given us. That’s why a conscious and active effort must
always be exerted to make every liturgical celebration truly a
meaningful encounter with the Lord. One area that we can improve
on is the positioning of the tabernacle in the sanctuary. Right now,
the tabernacle is located at the right side of the sanctuary (if one is
facing the sanctuary), which is not readily visible to someone who
comes to our church for the first time. The present directive of the
Church concerning the placement of the tabernacle states, "In
accordance with the structure of each church and legitimate local
customs, the Most Blessed Sacrament should be reserved in a
tabernacle in a part of the church that is truly noble, prominent,
conspicuous, worthily decorated, and suitable for prayer" (General
Instruction of the Roman Missal, #314). I believe we can make our
tabernacle more visible and prominent if it is placed back to the
center. Though as the presider, the priest acts in the person of
Christ, I find it a little bit uncomfortable to be at the highest point
and at the most prominent place in the sanctuary when that place
should be accorded and reserved to Christ, the Eucharistic King.
This does not mean though that our current set up is not a suitable
place for the presider or the tabernacle, but rather moving the
tabernacle to the center would highlight the various symbolisms
that the liturgical celebration wants to convey. By making the
tabernacle more prominent, it would further remind us of the
abiding presence of God in our church building, thus inviting us to
foster a more prayerful atmosphere.
As we move the tabernacle back to the center, the
priest-presider will move to the side diagonally, where the
tabernacle is currently placed. We will need a riser so that the priest
will also be more visible to both sections of the church. With our
current set up right now, it is very difficult for the presider to see
the annex section of the church since the priest is oriented to face
the main section of the church. By moving the presider to the side
diagonally, he will be able to face/see both the main and annex
sections of the church. As a presider, the priest would feel more
connected to the annex section if he can see them in the same way
that he can see the main section of the church.
The positioning of the furniture in the sanctuary communicates
something profound about our faith just like the rituals that take
place in it. They are not just arbitrarily placed for the sake of
aesthetics or practicality, but a deeper reason is the theological and
liturgical significance that they convey. We do hope that it will
make our sanctuary more beautiful, thus making us long all the
more to behold the Beauty Incarnate Himself. It is our hope that
this new set up in our sanctuary will take place during the first
Sunday of Advent, when we will also begin a new liturgical year.
A new year, a new sanctuary facelift! If you have any questions or
concerns, please feel free to let me know. Thank you in advance
for your understanding and support to this important change.
– Fr. Cary

PRIMER DOMINGO DE ADVIENTO
30 DE NOVIEMBRE, 2014
“VELEN Y ESTÉN PREPARADOS”
Son palabras muy sobrias las que se nos dirigen hoy, al
entrar en la nueva temporada del ADVIENTO. Jesús, en el
evangelio de hoy, usa la imagen de un hombre que va de viaje
(lo cual, en esos tiempos era cosa seria, y no una decisión que
se hace a la ligera).
Debemos de ser como el portero, el cual tiene la obligación
de velar, especialmente de noche, para proteger la propiedad
de su amo y asegurarse de que no le vaya a ser dañado por
nadie.
Nosotros también, en esta época de preparación para la
Navidad, y la venida de Jesús, necesitamos tener esa misma
actitud que la del portero: estar alertas para la llegada de
nuestro Señor, el cual llega a la hora menos esperada. ¡
No queremos perdernos esa experiencia y oportunidad!
ADVIENTO: EXPECTACIÓN Y LUZ
Al comenzar el nuevo año litúrgico con las 4 semanas de
ADVIENTO, nosotros como Iglesia vamos encendiendo una
vela en la CORONA DE ADVIENTO cada domingo como
signo de la luz que viene al mundo.
Dios se nos revela en este tiempo como EMMANUEL:
Dios-con-nosotros. Lejos de ser un Dios lejano y extraño, el
Dios de Jesús, su Padre, nos sale al encuentro en esta
temporada con la luz hermosa de Su Verdad … una luz que
penetra profundamente la oscuridad que encontramos tanto
dentro como fuera de nuestro corazón. De esa manera va
poco a poco iluminando esas tinieblas, esos lugares oscuros
que nos inquietan, y nos trae su paz y un gozo extraordinario.
¿Qué es lo que nos pide?
Que velemos, que estemos listos, con nuestras lámparas
encendidas, para poderlo reconocer y abrir cuando toque.

en la familia y a promover prácticas preventivas.
Habiendo completado un curso extendido de clases,
estas personas están preparadas para ASISTIRNOS

DONDE RECURRIR para obtener ayuda médica
profesional.
¿ESTÁN PENSANDO EN CASARSE?
Si usted y su novio (o novia) están pensando en casarse
en la Iglesia dentro del próximo año, no es demasiado
temprano para averiguar sobre los diferentes pasos que se
toman en preparación para este sacramento.
La próxima serie de pláticas pre-matrimoniales en
Santa Cecilia se ofrecerán comenzando el lunes, 5 de enero,
2015. Las personas tomando estas pláticas típicamente
estarían pensando en casarse en, o cerca del verano del

por mis intenciones. Hijitos, oren especialmente por los
que todavía no han conocido el amor de Dios y no buscan
al Dios Salvador. Hijitos, sean ustedes mis manos
extendidas, y con su ejemplo acérquenlos a mi Corazón y
al Corazón de mi Hijo. Dios les recompensará con toda
clase de gracias y bendiciones. !Gracias por haber
respondido a mi llamado!” 25 de noviembre, 2004.
