Sixth Sunday of Ordinary Time
Biblical times any skin
disease was labeled
leprosy, and lepers were
forced to live in
isolation, ostracized
from the rest of the
community. Any illness
was thought to be the
result of sinfulness,
either the sins of the sufferer or of his or her
parents and ancestors. People with mental
illnesses were believed to be possessed by
evil spirits, and they too were shunned and
driven out of towns and villages to fend for
themselves. These attitudes were common
throughout the ancient world. The open sores
of skin diseases and the strange behavior of
mentally ill persons were a stigma all could
recognize. “Stigma” is a Greek word that
originally referred to a tattoo or brand that
was cut or burned into the skin of criminals,
slaves, or traitors in order to identify them as
blemished or morally polluted persons. Many
of us today fear people with diseases such
as AIDS; similarly, we are uncomfortable
around someone who behaves oddly
because of a mental illness. Those who have
such illnesses often suffer more from
people’s negative attitudes toward them than
from the condition itself. In today’s Gospel we
hear about Jesus’ encounter with a leper. We
see that Jesus does not turn away from this
suffering man, but walks toward him. He talks
to him, takes pity on him, and stretches out a
healing hand. Today, the Catholic Church is
a world-wide provider of care for suffering
people, including those with HIV/AIDS and
mental illness, through Catholic hospitals and
clinics, organizations such as Catholic
Charities, and the hospices of Blessed
Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity, to
name but a few. There are many
opportunities in our local communities for us
to step in and help. Let’s be like Jesus and
walk toward the ones in need.

Fasting and Abstinence Guidelines
Fasting and abstinence are obligations for all Catholics during the
season of Lent. They begin the process of purifying and making us
receptive to receive the Lord. At the same time the spiritual practice is
not for everyone.
FASTING: Fasting was recommended by Jesus both by example
and teaching. The least we are to do when we fast is to eat one meal
at midday and two small snacks during the day. Ash Wednesday and
Good Friday are fast days for the universal church.
ABSTINENCE: Abstinence means not eating meat, meat products,
and poultry. It is meant to allow us to eat simpler, basic meals. Ash
Wednesday, and every Friday during Lent, and Good Friday are days of
AGES AND HEALTH: All persons who are in good health and have
completed their fourteenth year (the day after one’s 14th birthday) are
asked to abstain from meat on the days mentioned above. All adults
(those who have completed their 18th year) are asked to fast up to the
beginning of their 60th year. If one’s health is not good, no matter one’s
age, they should not fast or abstain from nutritious foods but should
spend the days of fasting and abstinence doing other spiritual practices
(for example, reading the Bible, praying the Rosary, doing acts of
kindness for others).
Notice: The parish office will be CLOSED
on Monday, February 16th, 2015 in
observance of Presidents’ Day.
Aviso: La oficina parroquial estará
CERRADA el lunes, 16 de febrero del 2015
en observación del día de los presidentes.
Stephen Ministry You may wonder why we Stephen Ministers often quote passages from Scripture, psalms,
or direct quotes from Jesus or one of the apostles including St. Paul. Our ministry is faith and scripture-based
as our own faith is scripture-based. We reach out through God’s assistance to those who are hurting,
providing them with emotional and spiritual care. We try to find passages that will be encouraging, inspiring,
and meaningful, leading to greater awareness and knowledge of God and our faith, helping our care receivers
and our readers form a more personal relationship with Him. On January 4th we celebrated Epiphany, a glorious event
for those of us who are not Jesus. As Fathers Santos told us, Epiphany is the manifestation of Jesus as Messiah of Israel,
Son of God and Savior of the World, with all implies, God's great love for us and all people with His mercy and grace
extending beyond Israel to all nations and people throughout the world. St. Paul, a Jew prayed for the Romans (his
gentile converts) and for us living today, “May the God of Hope fill you with you joy and peace in believing, so that you
may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:1-13) and in Romans 8:14-17, “All who are led by the
Spirit of God are sons of God. The Spirit Himself gives witness with our spirit that we are children of God.

Sexto Domingo de Tiempo Ordinario
Antiguamente a
enfermedad de la
piel se le llamaba
lepra y a los
leprosos se les
forzaba a vivir en penuria y retirados del
resto de la comunidad. Además,
cualquier enfermedad era considerada
como resultado del pecado, ya fuera del
pecado propio o de los padres, o
antepasados. Se creía que las personas
con enfermedades mentales estaban
poseídas por espíritus malignos, y
también a éstas se les rechazaba y se
les forzaba a salir de su pueblo o ciudad
y a arreglárselas por sí mismas. Todo
esto era lo común por todo el mundo
antiguo. Las llagas consecuentes de las
enfermedades de la piel y los
comportamientos extraños de los
enfermos mentales eran estigmas que
todos reconocían. “Estigma” viene de
una palabra griega que originalmente se
refería a un tatuaje con que se marcaba
la piel de los criminales, esclavos o
traidores a fin de identificarlos como
personas de mala reputación o
moralidad corrompida. Hoy muchos de
nosotros sentimos aversión por las
personas afectadas por el SIDA e
igualmente nos sentimos incómodos en
presencia de alguien que se comporta
de una manera rara debido a una
enfermedad mental. Las personas
afectadas por tales enfermedades a
menudo sufren más por las actitudes
negativas de otras personas que por la
misma enfermedad. En el Evangelio de
hoy escuchamos el encuentro de Jesús
con un leproso. Vemos que Jesús no le
da la espalda a este hombre que sufre,
sino que se dirige a él; le habla y tiene
compasión de él, y le extiende una
mano que cura. Actualmente la Iglesia
católica provee asistencia a través de
todo el mundo para las personas que
sufren, incluso las afectadas por el VIH/
SIDA y enfermedades mentales, por
medio de hospitales y clínicas, y
organizaciones tales como Caridades
Católicas y las residencias para
desahuciados de las Misioneras de la
Caridad de la Madre Teresa, entre
otros. Existen muchas oportunidades en
nuestras comunidades locales para
nosotros ayudar. Seamos como Jesús
dirigiéndonos hacia los necesitados.

In preparation for this world meeting of families there
is a survey put out by the Vatican to gather feedback
from all people whatever status and relationship to the
church. You may access this survey by going to the
website at SBDiocese.org, and clicking on Synod on the
Family Survey.
Here at St. Frances we will be gathering to form focus
groups to respond to the survey in a group effort. If you
"From my mother's womb, you have been my
God." (Psalm 22:10)
want to participate and have your voice heard please
Reflection: Abortion supporters sometimes ask, "Why
join us on Tuesday, February 17th in the Parish Center
don't you focus on caring for people who are already
alive?" But if children in the womb are not already alive, @ 6:30pm. Please bring your laptop or tablet for use in
inputing and responding to the survey. To RSVP and for
why does it take an abortion procedure to kill them?
any questions call Linda Ornelas [email protected] or
When we speak about unborn children, we are not
speaking about "possible" children; we are speaking
about real children who are already quite alive
Prayer: Father, open our eyes to recognize our brothers
and sisters in every place where they live, including in
their mothers' womb. Open our hearts to love them as
Would you like to join a Faith Sharing
you do. Amen
"Desde el vientre de mi madre, mi Dios eres tú"
(Salmo 22:10)
Refleccion: Los que apoyan el aborto algunas veces
preguntan, "Por qué no se enfocan en cuidar a las
personas que están vivas?" Pero si los niños en el
vientre no están vivos, por qué el procedimiento del
aborto para matarlos? Cuando hablamos de los niños
no nacidos, no estamos hablando de "posibles"
niños; estamos hablando de niños que ya están vivos.
Oración: Padre, abre nuestros ojos para reconocer a
nuestros hermanos y hermanas en donde vivan,
incluyendo en el vientre de sus madres. Abre nuestros
corazones para amarlos como Tu lo haces. Amen.
