1st SUNDAY OF ADVENT /1er DOMINGO DE ADVIENTO November 27, 2016 Reflexión El primer domingo de Adviento es el comienzo de un nuevo año litúrgico, estemos preparados o no lo estemos comenzaremos un nuevo ciclo de lecturas y relexiones que se reieren a todo el mis- terio de Cristo. Recorreremos nuevamente el calendario de la Iglesia desde la Encarnación del Señor hasta llegar nuevamente a Pente- costés y siempre en actitud de espera del retorno glorioso del Señor. Las lecturas de hoy nos invitan a un nuevo comienzo, a una nueva calidad de espera, de estar vigilantes. Nos advierten que si no esta- mos atentos será fácil perder el camino. Calidad de tiempo es lo que se necesita ahora, tener en cuenta el momento presente en que se vive. ¿Ha pensado usted lo aprisa que vive? ¿Da calidad de tiempo a su familia? En el Evangelio y en la Carta a los romanos, se nos recuerda la di- mensión del tiempo que no se mide con el reloj o con el calendario. El tiempo del que se habla es de la acción de Dios en nuestra vida. Tiempo que deberı́a ser sagrado para nosotros. Ahora vivimos llenos de citas, la agenda está llena. Pero el tiempo en que Dios entra en nuestra vida en nuestra historia es único. ¡El tiempo de Dios urge en esta sociedad! La invitación para hoy es que no nos dejemos absorb- er por tanta preocupación. Las personas atentas, vigilantes son de acción. Son las que rompen con todo lo que les ata y domina. Viven vigilantes y caminan con valentı́a a la luz del Señor. 411 Texas Blvd. • P.O. Box 1029 • Dalhart, Texas 79022 305 East Pine St. • P.O.

Reflection "Therefore, stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come." Jesus doesn't tell us when he will come again; but he does tell us all we need to know. First, he leaves no doubt in our minds that he will in fact return--this isn't a question we have to debate. And secondly, he tells us what we need to do to be ready: stay awake! As long as we don't doze off while we're waiting, everything will be all right. So our task is a relatively simple one. We are called to be on the look- out. We are supposed to be ready for the Lord when he appears. This is a straightforward instruction to be sure. But it does contain an inherent challenge: it's often much easier to hit the snooze button than to get up and at 'em. It's our task, however, to make sure we don't give in to the temptation to fall back asleep. This is what the season of Advent helps us to do. It's like the Church's alarm clock, ringing with persistence in our ears: Wake up! Throw off the covers of apathy and distraction! Jesus is coming! Get up and get your house in order before he arrives! What exactly this means will be different for all of us--the particular behaviors we need to change, the speciic virtues we need to develop--all of this is unique to each individual. But our common goal is the same--to clean house in our hearts and make ourselves ready to welcome the Lord. Yes, his return at the end of time will be a momentous event, but even if we never experience it during our lifetime, Jesus still wants to come to us here and now, to dwell in our hearts through the presence of his Spirit. This Advent, let's be ready to welcome the Lord every minute of every day.

    DEVOTION TO MARY (A Rose for Mary Ministry}

    Blessed Virgin Mary Please Pray This Week Especially for

    In Memory of Jim Hubbs

    Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who !led to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this con!idence, I !ly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

    The Rose often symbolizes Mary, the Queen of Heaven. In rela-

    tion to the Blessed Mother it displays perfect love, form, fra-

    grance, and color. For Mary the thorns on the rose remind us

    that Our Lord Jesus Christ wore a crown of thorns and gave up

    his blood for all humanity, as His Mother, Mary witnessed this

    suffering and death !irst hand at the foot of the cross.

    The Altar Society

    Devotion to Our Blessed Mother Mary

    The new 2017 signup sheets and envelopes are available in

    the narthex for the Devotion to Our Blessed Mother Mary

    ministry. This special ministry (sponsored by the Altar Socie-

    ty) is a great way to honor your loved ones birthdays, anni-

    versary or any special occasion. A rose bouquet will be placed

    on the altar by the statue of Mary with a special section in the

    bulletin recognizing the person being honored and prayed for

    each week. The cost of the rose is $15.00.

    enthusiastically help complete another fantastic year. With your generous help and support we were

    able to raise $34,000. It seems like an impossible feat to thank each of you individually but please know that we

    recognize the contributions of so many that enable Oktoberfest to be such a success. God bless you.
