    RCIA 2016-2017 If you know of someone who has not received First Communion or Confirmation, or maybe even some neighbors who talk about our parish and have never been baptized, why don’t you come to the rectory office during office hours and fill out the information for us this week. We will contact them in September or October to see if they are interested in coming closer to Christ in the sacraments of the church. Quizás tú conoces a alguien que necesita recibir sus sacramentos. Quizás tienes un vecino que habla de la iglesia y qui-siera bautizarse. Quizás tú serás el misionero de Cristo. De la información en horas de oficina en la rectoría y cuando em-pezamos las clases durante Septiembre y Octubre, les mandaremos un recuerdo para que conozcan también Cristo en los sacramentos!

    2nd SUNDAY OF ADVENT "Produce good fruit as evidence of your repentance." John the Baptist does not mince words. He tells it

    like it is. When the hypocritical Pharisees and Sadducees show up piously for baptism, John calls them

    out, saying, "You brood of vipers!" Not welcoming words, to say the least. Then he tells them that being

    part of the religious club (i.e., children of Abraham) isn't enough. No, "every tree that does not bear good

    fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire." It can be easy to join John in pointing fingers at those

    self-righteous religious leaders. But we're usually not so quick to point fingers at ourselves. On this Sec-

    ond Sunday of Advent, as we seek to prepare for the coming of Christ, we also need to hear John's sol-

    emn warning. How are we like these Pharisees? How have we excused ourselves because we are part of

    the "club," because we are baptized Christians, regular churchgoers, better than others, or whatever justi-

    fication we use to declare ourselves in good shape? How have we failed to produce good fruit by being

    satisfied with a comfortable life and a routine practice of the faith? What do we need to change? Where

    do we need to grow? How do we need to reach out and serve others, to sacrifice sinful behaviors, to delve

    deeper into our love for the Lord? John preaches today that God will "gather his wheat into his barn, but

    the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire." Advent is a gift from the Church--a time to renew our

    spiritual life by getting rid of the chaff in our souls and producing instead a fruitful harvest. Now is the

    time to do this work. As John tells us, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!"

    2º DOMINGO DE ADVIENTO

    La figura y mensaje central de este Segundo Domingo de Adviento es Juan Bautista. Su llamada a la con-

    versión y al mismo tiempo su mensaje de la cercanía de Dios es clave para entrar al Reino de los cielos.

    El significado de la conversión que él anuncia quiere decir abrirse a Dios y no

    debe quedar reducida a un cambio de conducta minimizada tan solo para tran-

    quilizar la conciencia. Para llegar a una verdadera conversión debemos de vivir

    sintiendo que Dios está próximo y que debe de prepararse el camino de abrirle

    paso y que sea el centro de nuestra vida. Preparar es responsabilidad de todos ya que la conversión es per-

    sonal y comunitaria. El profeta Isaías lo explica así: "Una voz clama en el desierto: Preparen el camino

    del Señor, enderecen sus senderos" (Mt 3, 3). ¿Es el Adviento tiempo de tensión o nos lleva a buscar a

    Dios? Ahora es el tiempo de pedir el Espíritu de sabiduría, inteligencia, prudencia y valentía. No hay que

    dormirnos en nuestros laureles, es tiempo de despertar, es tiempo de luchar por la paz y la justicia. Teni-

    endo siempre presente que al tomar responsabilidad de mi propia conversión ya estoy comprometiendo

    mi vida al encuentro con Dios. Entonces, no perdamos el tiempo en cosas pequeñas. Vamos a lo grande a

    dar fruto abundante de los dones que hemos recibido de Dios ya desde nuestro bautismo. No, nos vaya a

    pasar que: "Ya el hacha está puesta a la raíz de los árboles, y todo árbol que no dé fruto, será cortado y

    arrojado al fuego" (Mt 3, 10). ¡Al contrario, hacer ver con obras nuestra conversión! Es nuestra misión.

  • Sharing the Gospel Today you are with John the Baptist. He is wearing a camel skin coat and has a leather strap

    around his waist. He shares two grasshoppers and a little wild honey with you. He says, "Turn back

    to God! The kingdom of heaven will be here soon." You tell John, "I am very sorry for my sins. I am

    now obeying God's laws." Then John baptizes you in the Jordan River to make you ready for the

    kingdom of heaven. John the Baptist taught people to get ready for Jesus. He told them to

    change their lives. John helped many people wash away all their mistakes and bad choices. He

    washed away all their cheating, lying, fighting, and stealing. Once they were clean, John wanted

    them to see that living God's way is so much better. John told the people not only to clean their

    bodies, but to show that they love God by the way that they live.

    Prayer

    Dear Jesus, teach me to be truly sorry when I do something wrong.

    Something to Draw

    Draw John the Baptist baptizing you in the Jordan River.

    Mission for the Week

    Write a prayer to Jesus, asking Him to help you

    to be more honest, giving and kind.
