PARISH INFORMATION First Sunday of Advent BE PREPARED Be prepared. It’s that simple. As this Advent season opens before us, the Lord Jesus summons us to stand ready for his coming. At this time of year much of our attention is focused on being prepared for the details that accompany the holiday season. We purchase gifts; we decorate our homes, inside and out; we prepare foods that we eat only during the holidays; we write and send Christmas cards; we attend holiday concerts; we prepare either to welcome family and friends into our homes or arrange for visits to their homes. We really can’t escape the details that make up the season. Perhaps this Advent is a time to attend to all those details with a different spin. As we prepare to celebrate the feast of Christmas, why not be deliberate about acknowledging the presence of the Lord as we go about these tasks? The Lord often comes to us in wonderfully surprising ways. Let us be prepared. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

TODAY’S READINGS First Reading - All the peoples shall stream toward

the Lord’s house (Isaiah 2:1-5). Psalm — Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord

(Psalm 122). Second Reading - It is the hour to cast off the dark

and clothe ourselves in the light (Romans 13:11-14).

Gospel - Stay awake! Be prepared! The Son of Man will come when you least expect (Matthew 24:37-44 ).

Primer Domingo de Adviento ESTAR PREPARADO Debes estar preparado. Es así de simple. Al comenzar este tiempo de Adviento, el Señor Jesús nos llama a estar preparados para su venida. En esta época del año, gran parte de nuestra atención se centra en estar preparados para los detalles que acompañan las fiestas. Compramos regalos; decoramos nuestro hogar por fuera y por dentro; preparamos comidas especiales para esta época; escribimos y enviamos tarjetas de Navidad; asistimos a conciertos navideños; nos preparamos para recibir a los familiares y amigos en nuestro hogar o para visitarlos en sus hogares. No podemos ignorar los detalles que forman parte de este tiempo. Quizás este Adviento sea un tiempo para prestar atención a todos esos detalles con un enfoque diferente. Mientras nos preparamos para celebrar la fiesta de Navidad, ¿qué tal si reconocemos plenamente la presencia del Señor mientras realizamos estas tareas? El Señor muchas veces viene a nosotros de formas maravillosamente sorprendentes. Estemos preparados. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

TIEMPO DE PREPARACIÓN Esta vida es el tiempo de preparación para nuestro estado futuro. Nuestras almas continuarán siendo por siempre lo que hacemos de ellas en este mundo.

—John Tillotson, Arzobispo de Canterbury

CUMPLE HOY Si lo que hiciste ayer todavía te parece enorme, seguro que no has hecho mucho hoy.


RESPECT LIFE @ SAVIO Respect Life Ministry reports that during the “40 Days for Life” event, Ninety-nine mothers with child turned away from the abortion clinic and left. Five of these mothers reached out to us for help and we are currently supporting them. We wish to thank all the volunteers who stood outside the abortion clinic and prayed for the saving of mother and child. Your presence made a difference in the lives of ninety-nine (99) mothers and babies.

ADVENT PENITENTIAL RITE SERVICE As we start a new Liturgical Year with the onset of the Advent Season, let us start the year right by reconciling with God. Our Advent Peniten al Rite Service will be on Tuesday, December 6, 2016. The Sacrament of Reconcilia on (or Confession) is an important Sacrament to St. Dominic Savio. One of his promises before he received his First Holy Communion was, “I will go to Confession and Communion as o en as my confessor will allow.” “Praise the Lord, for he is good; for his mercy endures forever.” (Psalms 136:1 NABRE)

Show us Lord your love; and grant us your salvation.

(cf. Psalm 85:8 )

Haz, Señor, que podamos ver tu amor

y que tu salvación nos toque a todos.

(Salmo 84, 8)

A NOTE FROM FR. CHINH NGUYEN Hello everyone in the Lord! My message this me has two purposes: I hope this message finds you all in good spirits as we enter a new year as a Church! Yes, that is the me and season known in the Church as Advent! The vestments change, the Gospel changes as the Church moves into a new cycle recalling and celebra ng God's coming to our world in Jesus: God's redemp ve work in our journey of life and faith. God's reign is coming. Prepare for it by seeking forgiveness (Advent Peniten al Rite Service on December 6 at 7 p.m.): repent and believe! As carols ring out around shopping centers / malls. WATCH OUT and BE ALERT so you can recognize the moment when God is coming to you. Peace be with you and yours!

Hola a todos en el Señor! Mi mensaje esta vez ene dos propósitos: ¡Espero que este mensaje los encuentre a todos con bien al comenzar un nuevo año como Iglesia! Sí, esto es el empo conocido en la iglesia como Adviento! Las ves duras cambian, el Evangelio cambia a medida que la Iglesia se mueve hacia un nuevo ciclo recordando y celebrando la venida de Dios a nuestro mundo en Jesús: la obra redentora de Dios en nuestro camino de vida y fe. El reino de Dios está llegando. Prepárese buscando el perdón (Servicio de rito penitencial de Adviento el 6 de diciembre a las 7 pm): ¡Arrepiéntete y cree! Como resuenan los villancicos en el centro comercial. MIRA y ESTA EN ALERTA para que puedas reconocer el momento en que Dios viene a . ¡La paz sea con usted y el suyo!
