The Evening of Praise and Worship hosted by the parish young adults last Tuesday September 24 was one of the many opportunities to join the community in praise and worship through songs and eucharistic adoration. I want to thank Ron and his daughter Cat for gracing us with their presence and led us in singing. The next praise and worship is slated on October 22, Tuesday, 7pm-8pm.

Yesterday, Sept. 30 was St. Jerome’s memorial. As a scripture scholar, his famous phrase which has been extensively quoted, “Ignorance of the scriptures is ignorance of Christ.”  He translated the bible to Latin which was called Vulgate and had been used for 1,500 years in the church. Macassio, an Italian painter had a marvelous painting of him along with St. John the Baptist.

Today , Oct. 1 is St. Therese of the Child Jesus’ memorial. She joined the Carmelite order as a teenager at her request to the Holy Father. Her well-known phrase is to spend her time in heaven by doing good on earth. It’s so to speak, the little way. Her story of the soul was published after her death. Oct. 2, Wednesday is the feast of the Holy Guardian Angels. What Catholic doesn’t know the bedtime prayer to the Guardian Angels, Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love commit me here. Ever this day, be at my side, to light and guide, to rule and guard. Amen. Oct. 4 is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the most beloved saint of Europe for his extraordinary renunciation of material wealth. 

This Sunday is designated Respect Life Sunday, a special time to reflect on life from conception (womb) to natural death (tomb). This year’s theme is Christ Our Hope in every season of life. Here's the link for a plethora of resources.  


As always, we offer prayers for the weakest and the invisible among us: migrants and refugees, the homebound, speedy recovery for the sick, hope for the terminally ill and consolation for the dying. 

Let’s pray for the eternal repose of the souls of the parishioners who recently passed away and offer condolences, sympathy and consolation to the grieving families, relatives and friends. Rest assured, they are included in the prayers of the community.

Cristobal Robles, Angel Esqueda, Marissa Moreno, Isidro Robles

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
