Por medio de la Palabra y la Eucaristía, buscamos la sabiduría y la guía del Espíritu Santo, abrazando el amor de nuestro creador en cada pensamiento, palabra y acción.

Weekly Reflection The Power of God’s Love

El Poder del Amor de Dios

Today we celebrate the Baptism of Jesus. Matthew’s gospel recounts that Jesus asks John to baptize Him “to fulfill all righteousness.” As Jesus emerges from the water, He is recognized by God the Father with these words, ”This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” So much is embodied in the phrase, “my beloved Son.” God the Father in calling Jesus beloved expresses His infinite loving relationship with Jesus. And Jesus’ willingness to become human and to be baptized defines our relationship with God the Father. Jesus models the relationship our baptism calls us to: We are God’s beloved children. We have been created to be loved by God—to be His sons and daughters. This is our ultimate purpose. The graces we received in baptism call us to realize that we have been made worthy. Our baptism signals that we have been freed from the doubts, insecurities, and fear of original sin. We are dearly loved; we are God’s beloved who are intended for eternal life.

Hoy celebramos el Bautismo de Jesús. El Evangelio de san Mateo recuenta como Jesús le pide a Juan que lo bautice para “cumplir todo lo que es justo.” Cuando Jesús sale del agua, es reconocido por Dios Padre con estas palabras, "Este es mi Hijo muy querido, en quien tengo puesta toda mi predilección". Es mucho lo que se personifica en la frase, “mi Hijo muy querido.” Dios Padre expresa Su relación con Jesús como infinitamente amorosa al llamarlo querido. Y la disposición de Jesús de ser humano y ser bautizado define nuestra relación con Dios Padre. Jesús modela la relación a la cual nuestro bautismo nos llama: somos los queridos hijos de Dios. Hemos sido creados para ser amados por Dios – para ser sus hijos e hijas. Este es nuestro propósito. La gracia que recibimos en el bautismo es el llamado a darnos cuenta de que somos dignos. Nuestro bautismo nos señala que hemos sido librados de nuestras dudas, inseguridades, y el temor del pecado original. Somos muy queridos; somos queridos de Dios y nuestro futuro está en la vida eterna.

Safe Environment Safeguard the Children

What can I do as a parent following a trauma?

The establishment of the Office of Safeguard the Children in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and the formation of Safeguard the Children Parish Committees in the parishes were mandated by Cardinal Roger Mahony in 2002. The Office of Safeguard the Children assists these permanent Parish Committees in implementing child sexual abuse prevention education, Safe Environment policies, procedures and resources. http://www.archdiocese.la/ protecting/ for more information.

Establish a sense of safety and security. It is essential that children feel protected, safe and secure in the aftermath of a trauma. Ensure that all basic needs are met, including love, care, and physical closeness. Spend extra time to let children know that someone will nurture and protect them. Children will need a lot of comforting and reassurance. If you would like a copy of the article “A parent handout for helping children heal,” email jvienna@laarchdiocese.org. For particular help, you may call Assistance Ministry at (213) 637-7650. For particular help, you may call Assistance Ministry at (213) 637-7650.
