For those of Mexican heritage, November 2 means celebration of el Dia de Los Muertos, or “the Day of the
Dead.” One of the most important days of the year for many, they join All Saints and All Souls together, visiting the graves of babies and children on All Saints, since they are santitos (little saints) or angelitos (little angels). Flowers, their favorite toys, favorite music, and so on, are taken to them. The following day, people spend
time—some of them all day—at the cemetery with their loved ones who have died. From the ancient customs of
the Indians the families pray, talk with them, and take them their favorite food. It is a most solemn but joyful
day. It is a day to celebrate Christ’s victory over death: “Death, where is your
sting?” There is a mocking of death as people make skeletons, candy that
represents death, and Pan de los Muertos (bread of the dead) and consume
them in a kind of role reversal.
One of the customs is to build an altarcito (little altar) where one places
mementos and pictures of those who have died. There are also favorite foods,
candles, statues or pictures of favorite saints, books, and Bibles. Some parishes have begun to build an altarcito where all parishioners can join in honoring the deceased. A remembrance book can be placed to write names in.
The altarcito is traditionally left up for the month of November.

GOD’S WORD TODAY
Today Catholics everywhere celebrate our own
unique brand of Memorial Day. This is the day
when we remember those who have fallen asleep
in faith—those who are now at rest. For many,
especially those who have lost loved ones recently, this is a day of poignant remembrance. As we
listen to God’s healing word, let us keep in mind
all who have died, as well as those who mourn
them.

Religious Education
CONGRATULATIONS OLIVIA OBERMEYER!
Olivia will be our Parish Honoree at the Diocese of Orange’s Annual
Faith Forward Dinner on November 3, 2014. I have known Olivia
since she was in her first year of preparation for First Eucharist. And I
was one of her catechists in her Confirmation preparation classes. I
have watched her grow into a faith-filled and joyful young woman.
She serves as a lector in our parish and this year she is one of our catechists for our first year Confirmation candidates. I am grateful to Olivia for her loving and generous service as a catechetical leader in our
Parish Religious Education program. God bless her for sharing her love
for God and our faith with the youth of our parish.

Saint Catherine of Siena Parish School
Our sixth grade class recently took part in a retreat at
Saint Timothy Church in Laguna Niguel. The chosen
theme of the retreat was vocaƟons. The students discussed the four vocaƟons in the Catholic Church - Ordained in Priesthood, Called to the Religious Life,
Married & Having Children and Vow to Remain Single.
One of the favorite topics our students did most enjoy
was when Fr. Ken provided the group with his personal accounts regarding the journey of his vocaƟon to the
priesthood. The retreat concluded with Ɵme set aside
to decorate small boxes with bright colors and gliƩer.
Our Annual Golf Tournament was a great success.
We would like to extend a
special thank you to all our
sponsors and volunteers,
without whom this event
would of not been possible.
Your generous support benefits directly our students
and school.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
Cuando era niño tuve problemas con inaguantables dolores de cabeza. Después de casi tres meses batallando con esta enfermedad una señora me regaló una estampita de san Martín de Porres que contenía un pedacito
de su hábito. Dormí con esta estampita debajo de mi almohada y al tercer día sané de mi dolor. Fue así como
conocí por primera vez a este santo negrito y a sus animalitos.
Martín fue un religioso dominico de nacionalidad peruana que vivió de 1579 a 1639 y fue canonizado en
1962. Sin lugar a dudas, es uno de los santos más populares de América Latina. En él encontramos una persona con la cual nos podemos identificar ya que muchas veces a nosotros nos limitan las oportunidades debido a
nuestro origen y el color de nuestra piel. Por su origen (era hijo de un español y de una africana) ilegítimo y su
color mulato, Martín tuvo problemas para ingresar a la Orden de los Predicadores. Eventualmente la santidad
de sus obras y la fama de sus milagros le abrieron camino para incorporarse plenamente a los dominicos.
Normalmente es representado con una escoba y unos animalitos, recordando la humildad de su servicio
pastoral.

MIRANDO HACIA EL ÚLTIMO DIA
Hoy la Iglesia recuerda a todos los que han caminado el camino de Cristo y han pasado a la otra vida. Las
lecturas todas miran al último día, cuando todos resucitaremos de entre los muertos y nos encontraremos de
nuevo.
El profeta Daniel anuncia palabras de prevención y bienestar. Nos previene sobre el juicio que ha de venir,
pero también nos consuela y nos asegura que todo el que vive una vida de virtud y de justicia alcanzará la vida
eterna.
La lectura de romanos nos recuerda que, por la pasión, muerte y resurrección de Cristo y por nuestra participación en ese misterio pascual mediante el Bautismo, nosotros ahora compartimos esa nueva vida que Cristo
nos ganó. Este reconocimiento tiene repercusiones: necesitamos vivir justamente ahora, para poder alcanzar la
vida eterna con Cristo en el último día.
En el Evangelio Jesús promete que ninguno de aquellos que el Padre le ha confiado se perderá. Todos los
justos serán resucitados para gozar y vivir eternamente en la presencia de Dios.
