MANIFESTING THE SPIRIT

MANIFESTANDO AL ESPIRITU

The Christmas season closes this Sunday with the Baptism of the Lord. This feast is a sister to last week’s feast of the Epiphany. Each of them celebrates an “epiphany,” or a manifestation of the Spirit of God in Jesus— first in his birth, and now at his baptism. The divine Spirit is manifested in all of the scriptures for this feast. Psalm 104 highlights the Spirit of God creating and renewing the earth, while the reading from Isaiah describes God restoring Israel. In Luke’s account of the baptism of the Lord the Holy Spirit descends upon Jesus. And the letter from Titus reminds us that the Holy Spirit was “richly poured out” on us also, through the “bath of rebirth” (Titus 3:5, 6).

El tiempo de Navidad finaliza este domingo con el Bautismo del Señor. Esta fiesta es hermana de la fiesta de la semana pasada, la Epifanía. Cada una ellas celebra una “epifanía”, o manifestación del Espíritu de Dios en Jesús —primero en su nacimiento y ahora en su bautismo. El Espíritu Divino se manifiesta en todas las lecturas bíblicas de la fiesta. El Salmo 104 destaca al Espíritu de Dios que crea y renueva la tierra, mientras que la lectura de Isaías describe a Dios restaurando a Israel. En el relato de Lucas del bautismo del Señor el Espíritu Santo desciende sobre Jesús. Y la carta a Tito nos recuerda que el Espíritu Santo también “derramó con abundancia” sobre nosotros, el “baño de regeneración” (Tito 3:5, 6).

News from the Padre/ Noticias de Nuestro Sacerdote About a year and half ago, the administration launched an electronic vehicle “We The People: Your Voice in Government” enabling Americans to directly petition the White House. Any petition that collects 25,000 signatures within 30 days will be reviewed by the White House staff and receive an “official response” from the administration. Some of the recent petitions have been:    

Make the Metric System the standard in the United States. Shorten excessive copyright terms. Modernize the rail network into a high capacity electrified system. Allow intelligence agencies to secretly spy on U.S. Citizens.

Now there is a petition to designate our Holy Roman Catholic Church as a hate group based on Pope Benedict XVI’s year-end address in which he denounced gay marriage. The “We The People” petition filed on Christmas Day centered on what they perceive as Benedict’s “hateful language and discriminatory remarks.” This anti-Catholic petition argues that our Holy Father “demeaned and belittled homosexual people around the world.” The petition has 2,200 signatures, well short of the 25,000 needed by January 24. They want the President to identify the Catholic Church as a hate group, as defined by the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. Having read the Pope’s Christmas Greeting addressed to the College of Cardinals on December 21, 2012, I personally think that the petitioners are distorting the Pope’s words, which do not have any hateful or discriminatory language. The Pope did not directly reference “gay marriage” or “homosexuality” at all. However, our Holy Father did defend Our Church’s understanding of sexuality and the “true structure of the family, made up of father, mother and child.” You can Google “Pope Benedict’s Christmas Greeting” and read for yourself what the Pope said. I believe that the petition is very misleading and has a strong underlying agenda meant to silence the Church’s position and stigmatize the Church as being intolerant. The Federal Government does not actually designate hate groups. It does however, prosecute hate crimes. Our Catholic Church’s position does hold a moral opposition to homosexual acts, but the Church also strongly opposes any violent crimes against homosexual individuals. We clearly make a distinction between the act and the person.

News from the Padre/ Noticias de Nuestro Sacerdote Desde hace un año y medio, el gobierno mando por medio electrónico "Nosotros la voz del Pueblo: en el Gobierno" permitimos a los estadounidenses directamente hacer la petición a la Casa Blanca. Cualquier petición que tiene 25.000 firmas dentro de un plazo de 30 días será revisada por el personal de la Casa Blanca y recibir una respuesta "oficial" de la administración. Algunas de las últimas peticiones han sido: 

Hacer que el sistema métrico sea mejor en los Estados Unidos.  Acortar el exceso de los términos de derechos de autor.  Modernización de la red ferroviaria en una alta capacidad de sistema electrificado.  Permitir que agencias de inteligencia en secreto para espiar a los ciudadanos estadounidenses. Ahora hay una petición para designar nuestra Santa Iglesia Católica Romana como un grupo de odio basado en el discurso del Papa Benedicto XVI el fin de año en el que denunció al matrimonio gay. El "Nosotros, el pueblo", denuncia presentada el día de Navidad centrada en lo que ellos perciben al Papa Benedicto XVI "expresiones de odio y comentarios discriminatorios." Esta antiCatólica petición argumenta que nuestro Santo Padre "asilvestrado y menospreciado por personas homosexuales en todo el mundo." La petición tiene 2.200 firmas, muy por debajo de los 25.000 necesarios hasta el 24 de enero. Quieren que el Presidente identifique la Iglesia Católica como grupo de odio, tal como se define por el Southern Poverty Law Center y la Liga Antidifamación. Después de leer el Saludo navideño del Papa dirigido al Colegio Cardenalicio el 21 de diciembre de 2012, tengo que juzgar que los peticionarios están distorsionando las palabras del Papa, que no tienen ningún odio ni lenguaje discriminatorio. El Papa no hace directamente referencia al "matrimonio gay" o "la homosexualidad" a todos. Sin embargo, nuestro Santo Padre defiende nuestro entendimiento de la Iglesia de la sexualidad y la "verdadera estructura de la familia, compuesta por un padre, la madre y el niño." Puede entrar a Google "Saludo Navideño del Papa Benedicto XVI " y lea usted mismo lo que dijo el Papa. Yo creo que la petición es muy engañosa y tiene una fuerte subyacente del programa y para acallar la posición de la Iglesia y a la estigmatización social de la Iglesia, es intolerante. El Gobierno Federal no realmente designa grupos de odio. No obstante, enjuicia crímenes de odio. Nuestra posición de la Iglesia Católica tiene una oposición moral a actos homosexuales, pero también la Iglesia se opone firmemente a cualquier delito violento contra las personas homosexuales y nos hace una clara distinción entre la ley y la persona.

Looking for ways to enhance your prayer life in the new year? Try this i-phone or i-pad app — iRosary. The prayer of the Holy Rosary was inspired by an apparition of Mother Mary to Saint Dominic in the year 1214. She has appeared to many other saints over history, for example, to the children of Fatima in 1917 to emphasize the importance of this prayer. It was Blessed Pope John Paul II’s favorite prayer, and it was he who added the wonderful Luminous Mysteries in 2002. iRosary offers all 20 Mysteries of the Rosary, and one has the option to turn the Luminous Mysteries off for those wanting a traditional 15 Mysteries. It offers many styles of beads and can be operated for left or right hand manipulation of the beads and also offers the user many types of ways to say the Rosary with variations for the Fatima Prayer, Chaplet of Divine Mercy, and the Lorreto Litanies. It will also remember where you left off if you are interrupted during your prayers.

A REFLECTION ON STEWARDSHIP: Today — the Baptism of the Lord—is also the First Sunday in Ordinary Time. Jesus’ Baptism Feast is placed here by the Church because it is an important part of what has been revealed and taught to us during Christmas. Last week we spoke of the meaning of Epiphany — a “manifestation” or “revealing.” Christ’s Baptism, as described in the Gospel of Luke in today’s readings, represents one of the Theophanies. An Epiphany is a manifestation, but a Theophany is the manifestation of God Himself. During this Christmas season and the week after it, we celebrate four theophanies: 1. The birth of Christ on December 25, which revealed Christ to Israel; 2. The visit of the Magi on Epiphany, which revealed Christ to the Gentiles; 3. The Baptism of the Lord, which revealed the Trinity; and 4. The miracle at the wedding of Cana, which revealed Christ’s transformation to the world. (Next week’s Gospel is the miracle at Cana.) Jesus’ Baptism is even more than a revelation to us. If He, who had no need of this purifying act, humbly subjected Himself to it, then we, most in need of redemption, can recognize both the importance of this sacrament, as well as recognizing how we are freed from darkness. Jesus was not Baptized because He needed it, but because we needed it. The Baptism of the Lord marks the official end of Christmas. Some churches do not dismantle their Christmas decorations until after this Feast Day. As Catholics, perhaps we, too, should follow that example — to let everyone know that Christmas does not end with Christmas Day, but with the culmination of our understanding as to Who Christ is.
