Views from Fr. Larry Pichard, Pastor Visiones del Párroco, Pbro. Larry Pichard Let us greet Advent with open arms! Advent began in about the eighth century way before the “Commercialization of Christmas” was born. I think you know what the “Commercialization of Christmas” means—the frenzy of shopping, partying, and gift giving. Advent emerged as a time to reflect quietly and prayerfully upon remembering the birth of the Savior and looking forward to his Second Coming at the end of time. Oh, I know that our culture of pre-Christmas frenzy usually dominates our lives, but I hope you as an individual or as a family can spend at least some reflective time. The best thing to do is to read the Scriptural passages of our weekday Masses. Just google “daily Mass readings” and you will go to http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings. Or you can use your smartphone app called Laudate. Check in daily because I find those Old Testament prophecies, classic dreams of Isaiah and the Lord, to be so hopeful and so appropriate for today’s problems; in fact, I think they are the very best of the liturgical year! Maybe, with a family, your prayers before meals could incorporate those dreams for peace, healings, and God’s mercy. Maybe you could make it for daily Mass itself, weekdays at 8:30 am, Thursdays at 6:30 am, Monday evenings and Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm. Whatever you do, just remember the spiritual dimension of all your pre-Christmas activities. Definitely put these Advent dates on your calendar: December 8, Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, a holyday of obligation. Also consider Monday, December 12, bilingual Mass for Our Lady of Guadalupe at 7:30 pm although it is not a holyday of obligation. I would also like to invite you to make your Christmas Confessions early. Please don’t wait till the last minute, because if you do, you will find yourself waiting in very long lines.

¡Recibamos el Adviento con los brazos abiertos! El Adviento comenzó a celebrarse cerca del siglo VIII mucho antes que la “Comercialización de Navidad” apareciera. Pienso que ustedes saben lo que la “Comercialización de Navidad” significa—la euforia de las compras, fiestas y de dar regalos. Adviento surge como un tiempo de reflexión en silencio y de devoción recordando el nacimiento del Salvador y preparándonos para su Segunda Venida al final de los tiempos. Oh, yo sé que nuestra cultura de frenesí pre-navideño usualmente domina nuestras vidas, pero espero que ustedes en forma individual o como familia puedan tener al menos un momento de tiempo de reflexión. La mejor opción es leer los pasajes del Evangelio de las Misas de entre semana. Sólo busquen en google “lecturas de Misas diarias” y encontrarán la siguiente liga http://www.usccb.org/bible/lecturas , en la parte superior derecha en la opción que dice “Bible” encontrarán la opción de Lecturas del Día. O ustedes pueden utilizar en su teléfono inteligente una aplicación llamada Laudate la cual está disponible en varios idiomas. Revísenlo diariamente porque yo encuentro esas profecías del Antiguo Testamento, clásicos sueños de Isaías y el Señor, muy esperanzadoras y muy apropiados para los problemas de hoy y de hecho pienso que son las mejores del año litúrgico! Tal vez, en compañía de la familia, en sus oraciones antes de comer podrían incorporar esos sueños por la paz, la sanación y la misericordia de Dios. Tal vez ustedes pueden asistir a las Misas diarias, que tendremos entre semana a las 6:30 pm los martes y viernes en español, a las 6:30 am los jueves, a las 8:30 am de lunes a viernes en inglés o los lunes y miércoles a las 6:30 pm en inglés. Hagan lo que hagan, solo recuerden la dimensión espiritual de todas sus actividades antes de Navidad. Definitivamente aparten esta fecha en su calendario: 8 de diciembre, Fiesta de la Inmaculada Concepción de María, un día obligación. También consideren el sábado 12 de diciembre, la Misa bilingüe de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe a las 7:30 pm en la Iglesia, aunque no es un día de obligación. También los quiero invitar a que se Confiesen con anticipación antes de Navidad. No esperen hasta el último momento, porque si se esperan hasta el último momento, porque pueden encontrarse con largas filas para poder confesarse.

A Note from the Thanksgiving Box Outreach Ministry

A HUGE Thank You to all those who donated and volunteered in this year’s Thanksgiving Box Outreach. Through the GENEROUS donation of parishioners time, talent and treasure we were able to meet the goals promised to Frisco Family Services, St Vincent de Paul and AIDS Outreach with over 165 meals, gift cards and appreciated items donated. Please take a moment to recognize your contribution and the tremendous impact you were able to make on the lives of your fellow parishioners in need and those of our parish served by these worthwhile organizations. Each one of you is appreciated by us at the Thanksgiving Box Outreach Ministry.

A Thank you from the Troops

Dear Cindy & Parishioners of St. Francis,

Thank you for the generous care package goodies which were immediately enjoyed by me and my staff. You should know that I have the most selfless staff in all of Southwest Asia, who without prompting, volunteered to quality check some goodies for freshness (though not sure ‘quality checking’ an entire box of cookies qualifies)! As military leaders, we call on our soldiers, sailors airmen and marines to give their best every hour, often for long hours, and they deliver each day without partiality to their personal comfort, so getting a little piece of home to read or eat, gives them an extra push to the next hour, or short escape to the simple pleasures of home. Even greater than the delight from a double stuffed Oreo or a Slim Jim is the thoughtfulness of the parishioners and your Green Bag Ministry that remind them that they are not “out-of-sight-out-of-mind”... on behalf of all of us, thank you.
