Veneration of the Traveling Relic of St. John Paul II
Tuesday, March 10, 2015—St. Cecilia Church
7:30am—Arrival of the Relic/Short Liturgy to Welcome the Relic
8:00am—Solemn Mass
9:00-11:00am —Individual Veneration of the Relic, Rosary, and
Final Blessing for the Departure of the Relic
This is the official Relic of Pilgrimage of the Postulation of John Paul II.
The Relic is accompanied by the Sisters of the Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
Nearly every human being has a cherished treasure from a loved one: a family heirloom, a favorite picture, a lock of
hair, jewelry and so on. These items help us to be connected to our loved one and remember them, especially after their
death. There is something natural and very human about keeping and treasuring an heirloom. These heirlooms are a type
of relic. Drawing from this natural cherishing of heirlooms, Catholics have always held dear to their heart relics of
saints. These relics could be an actual bone, vial of blood, an item used by the saint such as a prayer book, or a cloth
touched to the saint’s body.
Just as we have a natural desire to remember our loved ones or be close to them through cherishing an heirloom, even
more, we should cherish our brothers and sisters of faith – the saints. The saints are an example of faith. They teach us
ways of holiness. They right now live in heaven. And, they are interceding for us to join them in heaven. Relics are a way
for us to be connected to our holy brothers and sisters. Because the relic is connected to the saints who are eternally
joined to Christ in heaven, relics are greater than a family heirloom. They are like a conduit to heaven with a divine power
that flows from the holiness of life that they lived.
Since the beginning, the Church has upheld the practice of venerating relics. This veneration is not offering adoration or
worship which is due only to God. Veneration is the honoring, cherishing, respecting, and devotion of heart given to the
saints. Veneration is an expression of our friendship and love for the saints – our brothers and sisters in heaven. This
veneration flows from our admiration of the saint’s holy life and their life with God in heaven.
Various pious practices have developed in order to show appropriate veneration to a relic and the saint. Relics are
placed in sacred and artistic vessels called reliquaries. The faithful often make pilgrimage to the shrine of a relic. Or, the
relic travels to different places in order to allow for veneration. The faithful spend time of prayer in the presence of the
relic. They may meditate upon the holy life of the saint, ask the saint’s intercession, or offer thanks for favors received.

Pastor’s Corner
Mass Intentions
As a penitential season, Lent calls us to deliberately slow
down from our usual busy lives and find an oasis of peace
and serenity where we can travel to the depths of our being
and find our way back again to God’s embrace. As we slow
down from our usual routines, we try to “busy” ourselves
with spiritual exercises that would rejuvenate our souls and
would re-focus us to things that are truly essential especially
in our faith life. Looking at our Parish Lenten calendar, there
are many activities and opportunities that can revitalize our
spirits and recharge us in our call to discipleship during these
forty days.
One of the special events that will take place during this
season of Lent is something that we did not plan ourselves,
but rather purely a gift from the providential God. I
mentioned to you last weekend that the traveling first class
relic of St. John Paul II will be visiting the Archdiocese of
Portland for two days, March 9-11. St. Cecilia’s is blessed to
have been asked to host the relic for a few hours on March
10 (Tuesday) from 7:30am to 11am. The other places/
parishes that will host the precious relic are: The Grotto
(Portland), Our Lady of the Lake (Lake Oswego), and
St. Joseph’s (Salem).
Relics are part of our Catholic spirituality. They remind
us of our universal call to holiness as exemplified by the
saints who, like us, have also struggled in their following of
the Lord but persevered and emerged victorious in the end.
There are three kinds of relics: the first class (which is a part
of the physical body of a canonized saint), second class
(something personally owned or used by a saint), and third
class (something has been touched to the first and second
relic). The relic of St. John Paul II that will visit our parish is
a vial of his blood, which was during the postulation of his
canonization. The Relic is accompanied by the Sisters of the
Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary based in
Miami, Florida. I would like to invite everyone who is free
that morning to join us in this rare and blessed event; bring
your personal petitions, especially petitions for healing for
those who are ill, and ask the intercession of St. John Paul II
who showed us in a powerful way the redemptive value of
suffering. May the visit of the relic reawaken in us the core
of the Lenten message: repentance and holiness. May God
continue to strengthen us in our Lenten journey and may the
blessed Mother be our model of perseverance and humility as
we approach the Lord for his mercy and compassion.

Divine Mercy Chaplet for the sick and
dying and pro-life causes. We meet
Mondays at 7pm in the Adoration
Chapel. We also pray the Litany of
Divine Mercy and, during Lent, the
Mercy Stations.
WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL ABOUT
DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY?
On the occasion of the canonization of Sister Maria
Faustina Kowalska, Blessed Pope John Paul II declared
“The 2nd Sunday of Easter from now on throughout the
Church will be called Divine Mercy Sunday.” This year,
Divine Mercy Sunday is April 12th.
In Sister Faustina’s private revelations (Divine
Mercy in My Soul), she revealed our Lord promised
extraordinary graces that can only be obtained on
Divine Mercy Sunday. In addition, the church has
granted a plenary indulgence to the faithful on that day.
These graces will be explored in the next weeks during
Lent so we can prepare ourselves to receive them
worthily.

St. Cecilia Parish presents Thérèse: The
Story of a Soul at the Activity Center on
Wednesday, March 18, 2015, at 7 p.m. (doors
open at 6:15 p.m.). Produced by Saint Luke
Productions, this drama is a face-to-face
encounter with Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, the
most beloved saint of modern times and is
suitable for all ages.
In this one-woman performance, Thérèse speaks directly to
the audience with humor, grace and humility. This is an honest,
loving portrait of a real girl who struggled with anxieties, but
overcame these obstacles by trusting in God. Thérèse's honest,
direct spirituality speaks powerfully to our busy culture with the
encouraging message that anyone can become a saint.
The world came to know Thérèse through her autobiography,
“Story of a Soul.” She described her life as a “little way of
spiritual childhood.” She lived each day with an unshakable
confidence in God’s love. “What matters in life,” she wrote, “is
not great deeds, but great love.” Thérèse lived and taught a
spirituality of attending to everyone and everything well and
with love. She believed that just as a child becomes enamored
with what is before her, we should also have a childlike focus
and totally attentive love. Thérèse’s spirituality is of doing the
ordinary, with extraordinary love.
Thérèse saw the seasons as reflecting the seasons of God’s
love affair with us. She loved flowers and saw herself as the
“little flower of Jesus,” who gave glory to God by just being her
beautiful little self among all the other flowers in God’s garden.
Because of this beautiful analogy, the title “little flower”
remained with St. Thérèse.
Patti Defilippis, who wrote the script and directed the play,
says, “I find Saint Thérèse to be my best model for how to live
my life to grow closer to Jesus. Most days I am overwhelmed –
by the tasks before me as a mother, the work I do for Saint Luke
Productions, and my own inadequacy and disorganization. She
constantly reminds me that I can do nothing, and that it is only
by trusting in God and making little efforts to smile, and not lose
my temper, that I can find true happiness with Him.”

SEGUNDO DOMINGO DE CUARESMA
1 DE MARZO, 2015
JESÚS ES TRANSFIGURADO
En el evangelio de hoy, los apóstoles que acompañan a Jesús
al monte para un tiempo de oración reciben una enorme
sorpresa. De repente el rostro y la apariencia de Jesús cambian
muy significativamente y Pedro, Santiago y Juan quedan
estupefactos.
Como si eso no fuera suficiente para llamarles la atención, lo
ven hablando con MOISÉS Y ELÍAS, dos de los grandes
personajes de la historia del pueblo de Israel. Ambos,
obviamente, habían fallecido siglos atrás.
Moisés, como sabemos, es la persona que Dios usó para
liberar a su pueblo de la esclavitud del faraón den Egipto y
después el que los guió por el desierto al Monte Horeb para
recibir la Alianza (incluyendo los 10 mandamientos); y Elías, el
extraordinario profeta de Dios que enfrentó pública y
dramáticamente al rey (y la reina) de Israel y toda su corte
cuando éstos amenazaban corromper la religión auténtica con
los baales (dioses falsos) importados de afuera. Ambos
sufrieron enormemente por la fe a manos del mismo pueblo,
pero perseveraron con firmeza y valentía y eran sumamente
honrados en Israel.
Los 3 apóstoles, como es de esperar, quedan maravillados
ante esta visión, encantados y emocionados, pero sin entender
bien su significado. No lo llegan a captar hasta después de la
RESURRECCIÓN DE JESÚS.
RELIQUIAS DE SAN JUAN PABLO II
Tal como se avisó el domingo pasado, una reliquia de este
extraordinario santo de nuestros tiempos estará de visita en la
arquidiócesis el MARTES, 10 DE MARZO, y tendremos el
honor re recibirlo en Santa Cecilia.
Estamos todos invitados a venir a la iglesia esa mañana entre
7:30 y 11:00 y unirnos a la comunidad para veneración, y para
pedir por nuestros enfermos. El P. Cary nos comentó que sería
apropiado traer (o invitar) a las personas enfermas que
conocemos para asistir aunque sea un rato y pedir la intercesión
de este santo ante el trono de Dios por recuperación, sanación y
gracia. La Misa se celebrará, como todos los días de semana, a
las 8 AM.
AYUDA CUARESMAL A LOS POBRES
Nuestra parroquia tiene la costumbre de invitar a las
familias a apartar $1 cada día para compartir con 3 ministerios
que ayudan a los más necesitados fuera de nuestra propia
comunidad: nuestra parroquia hermana (Cristo Rey) en Nuevo
Mexico; San Vicente de Paul; y el ministerio de ayuda social de

LA CUARESMA: REGLAS DE AYUNO
CATÓLICOS mayores de 14 años: no comer carne Miercoles
de Ceniza, Viernes Santo, y todos los viernes de Cuaresma.
CATOLICOS entre las edades de 18 y 59: AYUNAR el
Miercoles de Ceniza y el Viernes Santo.
AYUNO significa, al mínimo, comer una sola comida
normal; las otras dos, para mantener la salud, deben ser más
pequeñas (y, juntas, no ser más grandes que lo equivalente a
una comida completa).
CELEBRACIÓN DE MATRIMONIO EN COMÚN
Estamos formulando planes para poder celebrar una
boda comunitaria durante el verano (agosto15) para parejas
que desean que su matrimonio sea bendecido en la Iglesia.
Por diversas razones, hay parejas que no están en
condiciones para tener una boda individual y más grande (la
familia está lejos, o escasez de fondos para un salón y fiesta,
etc.).
Si le interesa averiguar más detalles, hable con el diácono,
o con en P. Cary.
FORMACIÓN DE ADULTOS EN LA FE
Nuestra iglesia ofrece un programa de formación para
adultos QUE ESTAN SIRVIENDO en algún ministerio y
desean crecer en su cercanía a Dios. Además, provee una
ayuda eficaz para los que quieren PROFUNDIZAR EN SU
CONOCIMIENTO de nuestras enseñanzas, en dimensiones
fundamentales.
La formación se da principalmente a través de talleres un
sábado al mes, desde marzo hasta noviembre. Los talleres se
llevan a cabo en Tigard, en la parroquia San Anthony, entre
9 AM y 4 PM.
Si está interesado en más información en relación al
programa, llamado “Discípulos Hoy, Apóstoles Mañana”,
hable con el Diacono Bill.
LAS SIGUIENTES PLÁTICAS PARA BAUTISMO
… de niños menores de 5 años se ofrecerán para padres y
padrinos los días JUEVES, 5 y 12 de marzo, de 7 a 8:30 PM.
Inscríbanse en la oficina, recordando de traer el
certificado de nacimiento del niño para bautizar.
MENSAJE MARIANO
“¡Queridos hijos! Es este tiempo cuaresmal de gracia, los
invito a abrir sus corazones a los dones que Dios desea
darles. No se cierren: con la oración y la renuncia digan Sí a
Dios y El les dará en abundancia. Así como en la primavera
la tierra se abre a la semilla y de el ciento por uno, así
también el Padre Celestial des dará en abundacia. Hijitos,
yo estoy con ustedes y los amo con amor tierno. !Gracias
por haber respondido a mi llamado!” 25 de febrero, 2006.
