TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
Over the next few weeks, if you were to stroll around Prague or
Budapest or Kraków, you might see curious grafitti scratched in chalk
over some doorways: “20 + C + M + B + 16.” The families dwelling
behind those doors have celebrated the Epiphany door blessing. They
have gathered before the feast-day meal, probably after Mass, and the
head of the family has traced the sign of the cross on the piece of
chalk. Standing on a ladder, the leader traces the numbers for the new
year, and the letters C M B for Christus Mansionem Benedicat, Latin
for “May Christ bless this house.” The letters also point to the names
that tradition has assigned to the mysterious magi, Caspar, Melchior,
and Balthasar—although scripture tells us nothing of their number,
their country, or their names. The blessing speaks of journeys
ended and journeys begun at the doorway, and prays that all journeys
be as satisfying as was the magi’s. It prays that the house beyond the
door have the quality of love and peace that the magi marveled at
when they at last arrived in Bethlehem. In some countries where the
Soviet Union tried to impose a harsh atheism, the vigor of this
household custom survived all efforts to erase Christian customs. In
the years of struggle, the chalked blessings were a pervasive sign of
defiance, and now in the light of new freedoms, they are a sign of the
resilience of our tradition and the fulfillment of the magi’s quest for
meaning and peace.—Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE Es tiempo de añadir los reyes
magos al pesebre. En 1448 llegaron los pesebres italianos a las iglesias
españolas, pero no fue hasta que el Rey Carlos III le regaló un pesebre
a su hijo en el siglo XVIII que el uso de pesebres se expandió en los
hogares. Desde entonces, el uso de nacimientos llegó al continente
americano en donde se convierte en la decoración principal para las
fiestas navideñas. Así como en todo país latinoamericano el montaje
del Belén es una tradición, lo es también en Venezuela. Con el pesebre
venezolano llegan también aguinaldos, parrandas, Misas y patines.
¡Sí! ¡Patines! Desde la mitad del siglo pasado los venezolanos
celebran la época navideña con “patinadas”. Estas “patinadas”
normalmente se hacen por las mañanas y muchas calles están cerradas
a los autos hasta las 8 a.m. para que niños y jóvenes puedan disfrutar
de los patines, bicicletas y otros juguetes que les regala el niño Dios.
Por eso, muchos niños duermen con un “cordoncito” atado al dedo
gordo de los pies, que cuelgan por la ventana para que los despierten
los que pasan patinado. —Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

AROUND OUR DIOCESE
>>Inaugural Mass for Florida Pilgrims at the National
March for Life! Mass for Florida Pilgrims,
Friday, January 22, 2016
8:30 am, St. Peter’s on Capitol Hill, 313 2nd St SE,
Washington, DC 20003, Principle Celebrant:
Bishop Frank J. Dewane
Con-Celebrant: Bishop Felipe J. Estévez, Servers:
9th at our 5:30 pm mass.
The Black Nazarene statue was
brought to Manila by the first group of Augustinian Recollect
friars on May 31, 1606. The image was originally housed in the
first Recollect church in Bagumbayan (now part of the Rizal
Park), which was established on September 10, 1606, and placed
under the patronage of Saint Juan Bautista Saint John the Baptist.
In 1608, the image of the "Nazareno" was transferred to the second, bigger Recollect church dedicated to San Nicolas de Tolentino (Saint Nicholas of Tolentine). The Recollect Fathers dynamically promoted devotion to the Suffering of Our Lord represented by the image that in fifteen short years, the Cofradia de
Santo Cristo Jesús Nazareno was established on April 21, 1621.
The confraternity obtained Papal approval on April 20, 1650,
from
Pope
Innocent
X.
Sometime in the year 1787, then Archbishop of Manila, Basilio
Sancho de Santas Junta y Rufina, ordered the transfer of the image of the Nazareno to the church in Quiapo, again providently
placed under the patronage of Saint John the Baptist.The Black
Nazarene made a lot of miraculous things. These are the survival
of the image from the great fires that destroyed Quiapo Church
in 1791 and 1929, the great earthquakes of 1645 and 1863, and
the destructive Bombing of Manila in 1945 during World War II.
Today the head and the cross stay on the Altar Mayor of the Minor Basilica, and the original body image of the Black Nazarene
is used in the processions. Other, even smaller replica can be
found in other churches.
The next Baptism Class
for families wishing to
have their child, (age 7 and under), baptized
will be on Thursday, January 28th at 7 pm.
Please contact Sharon Tomore to pre-register
for the class at 904.786.1192, x228 or email
stomore@mhrjax.org.
Baptism Class
Jubilee Year of Mercy
Titus 3:4-5 But when the kindness and
generous love of God our savior appeared,
not because of any righteous deeds we had
done but because of his mercy, he saved us
through the bath of rebirth and renewal by
the holy Spirit.
Carta a Tito 3:4-5 Pero se manifestó la bondad
de Dios, nuestro Salvador, y su amor a los hombres, pues no fue asunto de las obras buenas que
hubiéramos hecho, sino de la misericordia que
nos tuvo. Él nos salvó por el bautismo que nos
hacía renacer.
