    Parish Information

    Nearly two hundred years before the Declaration of Independence proclaimed “that all men are created equal,” two hundred fifty years before the Emancipation Proclamation mandated an end to slavery, three hundred fifty years before Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream”, and four hundred years before the election of an American president boasting African heritage, Peter Claver left his native Spain

    behind to volunteer for the Jesuit missions in Colombia.

    There, he was horrified both by slavery as an institution and by the inhuman brutality inflicted upon the slaves. He solemnly vowed to become “the slave of the slaves,”

    and lived that vow heroically for close to forty years. Not knowing their language, Peter began his ministry among the slaves by using the

    universal language of practical charity, providing medical care and a tangible though wordless assertion of their human dignity:

    “We spoke to them not with words but with our hands, kneeling beside them, bathing their faces and bodies, encouraging them with friendly gestures” (see Liturgy of the Hours, Volume 4, p. 2018).

    Then came evangelization and baptism. Holiness as human wholeness: Peter Claver’s enduring witness.

    The Holy Spirit's might and power are manifested in the striking decisions and bold actions of Peter Claver.

    A decision to leave one's homeland never to return reveals a gigantic act of will difficult for us to imagine. Peter's determination to serve forever the most abused, rejected and lowly of all people is stunningly heroic. When we measure our lives against such a man's, we become aware of our own barely used

    potential and of our need to open ourselves more to the jolting power of Jesus' Spirit.

    I am now campaigning, advocating for Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration!

    December 2nd 2018 is a very special day in the devotional life of our parish. It will be the inauguration and blessing of our Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration chapel! After the 5PM Mass that day Our Lord will always be waiting to converse with us, to bless us and transform us!

    Our present Blessed Sacrament chapel located at the back of the sanctuary will be renovated into a Place of Encounter like Mounts Sinai and Tabor as well as the Garden of Gethsemane.

    Please commit and invite souls to an hour of Adoration and let our Lord love you and do miracles for you. We are meant to spend eternity with the Lord. Let us choose to practice that NOW. Adoration is only a foretaste of the ineffable eternal joy and peace promised to us.

    In adoring Our Lord, yes, He begs for our love and company. The more we immerse ourselves into this holy devotion of presence and listening, He strengthens us in friendship (which is Faith!) and uses us to be witnesses, shining with Hope amid a very dark world and we intercede for the needs of the world and our neighbor (not just ourselves!). Adoration (also) prepares us, making us vigilant for the Day of Justice. Mercy now, Justice later. But in both, “Stay awake!” (Matthew 24:42) and “Keep your lamps burning!” (Luke 12:35)

    Why do we adore for an hour? It is Our Lord’s request just “being with Him” before He suffered lovingly to save us. Or perhaps, this request of “being with Him” can and will save us from a lot of suffering!

    Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” He took along Peter and the two sons of Zebedee and began to feel sorrow and distress. Then he said to them, “My soul is sorrowful even to death. Remain here and keep watch with me.” He advanced a little and fell prostrate in prayer, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; yet, not as I will, but as you will.” When he returned to his disciples he found them asleep. He said to Peter, “So you could not keep watch with me for one hour? Watch and pray that you may not undergo the test. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Matthew 26:36-41)

    I would like to share with you a theological reflection: The Real Presence: What Do We Believe by Fr. John A Hardon SJ (a Jesuit American theologian who passed away in 2000 and is now recognized by the Catholic Church as a Servant of God).

    On the answer to what do we believe depends in large measure whether we shall only know about sanctity or also attain it, whether holiness will remain only an idea or whether we shall actually become holy. What a difference!

    The simplest way to express what Christ asks us to believe about the Real Presence is that the Eucharist is really He. The Real Presence is the real Jesus. We are to believe that the Eucharist began in the womb of the Virgin Mary; that the flesh which the Son of God received from His Mother at the lncarnation is the same flesh into which He changed bread at the Last Supper; that the blood He received from His Mother is the same blood into which He changed wine at the Last Supper. Had she not given Him His flesh and blood there could not be a Eucharist.

    We are to believe that the Eucharist is Jesus Christ – simply, without qualification. It is God become man in the fullness of His divine nature, in the fullness of His human nature, in the fullness of His body and soul, in the fullness of everything that makes Jesus Jesus. He is in the Eucharist with His human mind and will united with the Divinity, with His hands and feet, His face and features, with His eyes and lips and ears and nostrils, with His affections and emotions and, with emphasis, with His living, pulsating, physical Sacred Heart. That is what our Catholic Faith demands of us that we believe. If we believe this, we are Catholic. If we do not, we are not, no matter what people may think we are.

    Our faith is belief because we do not see what we believe. We accept on Christ’s words that all of this is there, or rather, here in the Holy Eucharist. Faith must supply what, as the Tantum Ergo sings, “the senses do not perceive.” And faith must reveal what the mind by itself cannot see. Let us never forget this phrase, first in Latin, Iumen fidei, the light of faith. Faith reveals, faith discloses, faith enlightens, faith empowers the mind to see what the mind without faith cannot see.

    What a chance Christ took. “Lord,” Peter looked around, “whom shall we go to?” (And he spoke for all of us.) “You have the message of eternal life, and we believe, we know, that You are the holy one of God.”

    There is a prayer in the Coptic Liturgy that I think perfectly answers the first question we are asking. “What do I believe when I believe in the Real Presence?” The prayer goes as follows, a little long, but worth it:

    “I believe and I will confess to my last breath that this is the living bread which Your only begotten Son, Our Lord and God and Savior, Jesus Christ, took from Our Lady and the Queen of Mankind, the holy, sinless Virgin Mary, Mother of God. He made it one with His Godhead without confusion or change. He witnessed before Pontius Pilate and was of His own free will condemned in our place to the holy tree. Truly I believe that His Godhead was not separated from His manhood for a moment, not even for the twinkle of an eye. He gave His body for the remission of our sins and for eternal life to those who partake of this body. I believe, I believe, I believe that this is in very truth that body. Amen.”

    That is your faith and mine.

    Strange as it may sound, when we believe in the Real Presence, we believe in things twice unseen. We see only what only looks like bread and wine, tastes and smells like bread and wine, and yet we are to believe that behind these physical appearances is a man. Faith number one. And we are further to believe that behind the unseen man is God. Faith number two.

    Is it any wonder the Church calls the Eucharist, Mysterium Fidei, the Mystery of Faith? Those who accept the Real Presence accept by implication all the cardinal mysteries of Christianity. They believe in the Trinity, in the Father who sent the Son and in the Son who sent the Holy Spirit. They believe in the Incarnation, that the Son of God became man like one of us. They believe in Christ’s divinity since no one, but God could change bread and wine into His own body and blood. They believe in the Holy Catholic Church which Christ founded and in which through successive generations is communicated to bishops and priests the incredible power of making Christ continually present among us in the Blessed Sacrament. They believe against all the betrayals by the Judases of history and all the skepticism of Christ's first disciples, in an unbroken chain of faith ever since Peter replied to Christ’s question whether he and his companions also wanted to leave the Master.

    “Beginning Experience” is part of an international ministry for those men or women who have

    experienced the loss of a spouse through death, divorce or separation. A “Beginning Experience”

    This weekend helps a person move from the darkness of grief into the light of a new beginning with renewed hope. “Beginning Experience” is recognized by the Office of Family Life for the

    Archdiocese of Los Angeles. To register for this weekend, or obtain more information, contact:
