SURPRISES

SORPRESAS

Life is full of surprises, some pleasant, some not. The scriptures are filled with stories of God’s surprises cropping up when they are least expected: younger children obtaining the inheritance; the lowliest being seated highest up; an itinerant preacher, killed like a criminal, exalted to eternal, heavenly glory. Anybody who has planned a wedding or similar event knows that they are filled with opportunities for surprises. For the bridegroom in today’s Gospel story, who has no direct contact with Jesus, the pleasant surprise came because somebody else paid attention and had faith in Jesus. We may think that the point of today’s familiar story of the wedding at Cana is that when we have faith in Jesus, our lives will be pleasantly changed. A Christian, however, needs to have a broader perspective and realize that to have faith in Christ means that somebody’s life—not necessarily our own—will be surprised for the better.

La vida está llena de sorpresas, algunas placenteras y otras no. La Biblia está llena de relatos de las sorpresas de Dios que surgen cuando menos se las esperan: hijos menores que reciben la herencia; el menor que se sienta junto a la cabecera; un predicador itinerante que es crucificado como a un criminal, exaltado a la eterna gloria celestial. Cualquiera que haya planeado una boda o evento similar sabe que están llenas de oportunidades para las sorpresas. Para el novio en el Evangelio de hoy, que no tiene contacto directo con Jesús, le llegó una agradable sorpresa porque otra persona prestó atención y tenía fe en Jesús. Tal vez pensamos que el punto del familiar relato de la boda de Caná es que cuando tenemos fe en Jesús, habrá cambios placenteros en nuestra vida. Sin embargo, el cristiano necesita tener una perspectiva más amplia y darse cuenta de que tener fe en Cristo significa que en la vida del otro — no necesariamente en la nuestra— habrá buenas sorpresas.

News from the Padre/ Noticias de Nuestro Sacerdote Forty years after the Supreme Court legalized abortions, the pro-life movement still has not stepped back in its resolve to see the decision reversed. Each year on or around January 22nd, the day commemorating Roe vs. Wade, thousands of pro-life demonstrators gather in cities throughout America praying to change the laws that allow abortion in this country. The recent cover story of the January 14, 2013 issue of TIME magazine entitled “40 Years Ago, Abortion-Rights Won an Epic Victory with Roe V. Wade; THEY’VE BEEN LOSING EVER SINCE,” is an interesting read. In reading the article, you will see that because the abortion-rights activists have been losing, they will be making a change in their strategy. They evidently plan on avoiding their currently-used term “pro-choice” by implementing the same idea with “reproductive justice.” Our Catholic Church’s teachings concerning the sacredness of every single human life are based on Sacred Scripture about divine creation and the divine destiny of human life. They are also based on “natural law,” which is the divine law written in our hearts and knowable by human reason. The most comprehensive and inspiring summary of Catholic teaching on abortion is the 1995 papal encyclical The Gospel of Life (Evangelium Vitae), which describes the medical and scientific consensus on when human life begins. Some people are surprised to learn that the obstetrics textbooks used in the leading medical schools in the country today assume that human lives begin at conception. Advancement in scientific studies of the unborn, and the increase in technology which develops ultrasound imaging of the unborn child prompt further confirming evidence of the emergence of a child’s humanity. Many questions arise as to why the Church won’t make specific exceptions for abortion when unborn children are conceived through rape or incest, or will be born disabled. Making such exceptions could send the message that a person’s value depends upon their physical condition, the circumstances of their conception, or other people’s perception of them. Our faith teaches us that human beings have sacred value regardless of the circumstances of their conception or condition. What about the argument that the Church must make exceptions to its teaching when it is medically necessary for the mother’s health? The Church opposes all direct abortions; it does not condemn procedures which result, indirectly, in the loss of the unborn child as a “secondary effect.” The Church’s official teaching concerning abortion in the case of rape or incest is found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraphs 2270 and 2271. Encyclicals, science, and laws aside, women and men do make heart rendering and faith challenging decisions to abort. Instead of being chastised, criticized, or ostracized, I firmly believe and embrace that penitents need to know that forgiveness and healing are available to them. We confessors must inspire these women with hope while making it clear that God and the Church forgive this sin...and them. And while this must be done without minimizing the act itself, the priest must affirm to the woman that God still loves her and will always love her. In your prayers, please remember to pray for those involved in any way with abortion; not only for the unborn children and all who are passionately involved in the pro-life movement, but for those who have opted for pro-choice and need reconciliation, healing, and love. Pg. 6


News from the Padre/ Noticias de Nuestro Sacerdote Cuarenta años después de que el Tribunal Supremo legalizó el aborto el movimiento pro-vida aún no ha retrocedido en su decisión de que la decisión revierte. Cada año alrededor del 22 de enero, el día en que se conmemora el Roe vs. Wade, miles de manifestantes pro-vida se reunieron en ciudades de toda América orando para cambiar las leyes que permiten el aborto en este país. La reciente historia de portada del 14 de enero de 2013 de la revista TIME tema titulado "Hace 40 años, Abortion-Rights ganó una victoria épica con Roe vs. Wade; han ido perdiendo DESDE ENTONCES", es una interesante lectura. En la lectura del artículo, verán que, debido a que el aborto de activistas de los derechos se han perdido, se van a hacer un cambio en su estrategia. Lo que evidentemente van a evitar en su plan actualmente utilizando el término "pro-choice" mediante la aplicación de la misma idea de "justicia reproductiva." Nuestra Iglesia Católica nos enseña sobre el carácter sagrado de toda vida humana individual basan en la Sagrada Escritura acerca de la divina creación y el destino de la vida humana. Asimismo, se basada en "ley natural", que es la ley de Dios escrita en nuestros corazones y conocible por la razón humana. El más completo e inspirado resumen de la doctrina católica sobre el aborto es el de 1995 la encíclica papal y el Evangelio de la vida (Evangelium Vitae), en la que se describe el consenso médico y científico en cuando la vida humana comienza. Algunas personas se sorprenden al saber que la obstetricia los manuales utilizados en las principales escuelas de medicina en el país hoy asumen que la vida comienza en el momento de la concepción. Los adelanto en los estudios científicos sobre los niños por nacer, y el aumento de la tecnología que desarrolla el sistemas de imágenes nuevas del niño y pruebas contundentes de la aparición de un niño de la humanidad. Muchas preguntas surgen en cuanto a por qué la Iglesia no hace excepciones específicas en la interrupción del embarazo cuando los niños son concebidos a través de la violación o incesto, o va a nacer discapacitado. Lo que tales excepciones podrían enviar el mensaje de que una persona de valor depende de su estado físico, de las circunstancias de su concepción, o de otros la percepción de la gente de ellos. Nuestra fe nos enseña que los seres humanos tienen valor sagrado independientemente de las circunstancias de la concepción o condición. ¿Qué pasa con el argumento de que la Iglesia debe hacer excepciones a su enseñanza cuando es médicamente necesaria para la salud de la madre? La Iglesia se opone directa todos los abortos, pero no condena los procedimientos que los resultados, de manera indirecta, en la pérdida del niño por como un "efecto secundario." La Iglesia enseña oficialmente sobre el aborto en caso de violación o incesto, se encuentra en el Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica, en los párrafos 2270 y 2271. Las encíclicas, la ciencia, y las leyes aportan, a las mujeres y a los hombres a desgarrar su corazón y tener fe para desafiar las decisiones para abortar. En lugar de ser castigados, criticados o condenados al ostracismo, creo firmemente y abrazo que los penitentes necesitan saber que el perdón y la sanación están disponibles para ellos. Nosotros los confesores debemos inspirar a estas mujeres con esperanza al mismo tiempo que poner de manifiesto que Dios y la Iglesia perdona este pecado... y a ellos. Y mientras esto debe hacerse sin minimizar el hecho en sí mismo, el sacerdote debe afirmar que Dios ama siempre a la mujer con gran amor. En la oración, por favor recuerde orar por las personas involucradas en modo alguno con el aborto; y no sólo para los niños que están involucrados apasionadamente en el movimiento pro-vida, pero para aquellos que han optado por pro-elección y necesitan la reconciliación, la curación, y el amor.

CSA Announcement Hello fellow parishioners, with a Happy New Year wish for all, it is also time for the Bishop’s annual Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) for 2013. This year’s theme is “OPEN WIDE THE DOOR OF FAITH.” You will hear more about this year’s appeal next week with our official CSA 2013 launch! Please welcome this year’s Chairpersons, fellow parishioners and Online Giving participants Carol and George DelCarlo! You will hear more from our Chairpersons next week for the kickoff as well as periodic updates on the progress of our diocesan-assigned goal for St. Francis. I have listed a few key points below for you to keep in mind as we begin the CSA journey for 2013. Thanks in advance for your participation and generosity for many Northern Nevada worthy causes. Ed Orsua – Administrator Some key points: 

 

Pg. 10

Along with the encouragement for secure and safe Online Giving via the internet for St. Francis, the Diocese is also encouraging online giving through our website “sftahoe.org” or directly through the diocesan website at “catholicreno.org” where you can register, pledge, and contribute. Safety, security, and productivity gains are sound reasons that online giving is encouraged. Our goal is for this to become the norm for both our general parish collections as well as the CSA campaign. St. Francis has again been given a high goal with an increase of 5.5% compared to last year. The diocese has held the aggregate goal flat for several years, but feels it is time to challenge the greater community to try to give a little more in order to meet or exceed a modest 4.8% increase for 2013. More details later… CSA funds twenty-seven Northern Nevada Catholic Charities with our donation. Think about how much more could be funded if we could get 100% participation (we average about 45%). Every dollar donated over the diocesan-assigned goal will be “rebated” back to St. Francis of Assisi! Again, the rebate and specific appeals help to “seed” or maintain new ministries like our WONDERFUL Music Ministry brought on board in 2010, and our enthusiastic and much needed Youth and Young Adult Ministry launched in August of last year.


SCA Anuncio Hola parroquianos, Feliz Año Nuevo les deseo a todos, también es tiempo para el Obispo el servicios católico de anual apelación (SCA) para el 2013. Este año el tema es "abrir de par en par LA PUERTA DE LA FE." Usted es oirán más acerca de este llamamiento del año. La siguiente semana con nuestro lanzamiento oficial 2013 SCA! Por favor, sean bienvenidos este año los Presidentes, parroquianos y dar a los participantes en línea Carol y George DelCarlo! Ustedes escucharán más de nuestros Presidentes la próxima semana iniciará, así como las actualizaciones periódicas de los progresos de nuestra diócesis-le indicaremos los objetivos de la Iglesia de San Francisco de Asis. He citado algunos puntos claves a continuación para que se mantengan en mente en el momento en que iniciemos la SCA el viaje para 2013. Gracias de antemano por su participación y generosidad para las muchas causas dignas para el Norte de Nevada. Ed Orsua - Administrador Algunos de los puntos clave: 

Junto con el estímulo para la seguridad y la protección en línea a través de la internet de la parroquia de San Francisco, la diócesis está también alentando en línea a través de nuestra página web "sftahoe.org" o directamente a través de la página web de diocesano "catholicreno.org", en donde usted puede registrarse, hacer su promesa y contribucion. El seguro, y los aumentos en las ganancias y la productividad del sonido se darán las razones en línea para que se alienten. Nuestro objetivo es que este se convierta en la norma general tanto para la recaudación de nuestra parroquia, así como para la campaña de SCA. La iglesia de San Francisco de Asís se ha vuelto un objetivo elevado con un aumento del 5.5% en comparación con el año pasado. La diócesis ha celebrado la meta agregada por varios años, pero está convencida de que ha llegado el momento de impugnar la mayor comunidad para intentar dar un poco más, para cumplir o exceder un modesto aumento de 4.8% para 2013. Más detalles más adelante… La SCA da el veintisiete para los fondos del Norte de Nevada y Las Caridades Católicas con nuestra donación. Pensar en lo que se podría haber financiado si nos podían dar su participación del 100% (tenemos promedio alrededor del 45%). Cada dólar donado por un diocesano será asignado para el objetivo “reembolsado” a la parroquia de San Francisco de Asís. Una vez más, el reembolso al llamamiento específico ayudara a "la semilla" o mantener nuevos ministerios como los de nuestro maravilloso ministerio musical traído a principios del año 2010, y nuestro entusiasta y tan necesario Ministerio de Jóvenes y Adultos que se lanzó en agosto del año pasado.
