Our office staff will help you find an open date and time for a Mass, or available candles for dedications.

The Epiphany. Three Wise Men were looking for the new born king. They have heard about the prophecy and have found through celestial clues that the child will be born. They traveled from the East and searched for the new born king by following the star. The wise men sought for the true Wisdom born as a man. How admirable. These wise men were intelligent and obviously leaders in knowledge and wisdom. Yet they did not stop finding the truth until they found themselves being led towards the Truth. My parents have impressed on me the importance of knowledge and literacy. For them, knowledge is wealth-everlasting, incorruptible and secured. For them, knowledge is key to life. Take note of this: Knowledge is key to life. How far have we reached as we advance in our discoveries using knowledge? Very far. We have “known” a lot of mysteries that puzzles us. In fact, we have gone so far that we have known that there might be life besides earth. Truly amazing! Yes, we have spiraled to heights of knowledge that were never before known. We advance, but we also give up something. The equation is simply the economy of human progress. When we know more of the mysteries that surround human life, we also know less of the true Truth, who is God. The Wise Men did the opposite. As they discovered truths about human life, they also learned more of the true Truth. Why? Because they did not consider their discoveries as independent from the Truth. They knew their discoveries were integral in seeking the Truth. The Wise Men followed the bright star. If we follow the bright star rather than following human illuminations, we will see not just a brightness but the daylight. o0o Epiphany means manifestation. The Lord manifested himself to the wise men through the star, a familiar sight to these astronomers. God manifests to us through the familiar. In our daily lives, the common happenings daily are God manifestations. But we are always turned towards the spectacular. In that sense, we miss a lot. Remember: the familiar is the way God manifests himself always. o0o Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. The Christmas seasons ends with the celebration of the Baptism of the Lord. In this celebration, we look at Jesus being baptized by the Baptizer and the Father proclaiming him as His only begotten Son. Jesus’s ministry starts from here. Prior to this, he has manifested in the wedding at Cana. In that occasion, Jesus protested to do a miracle because it was not yet his time. But with his mother pleading for the newly weds’ cause, Jesus did the miracle of turning the water into wine. That miracle was equally heavenly as all the other miracles he did during his public ministry. As we begin to walk with Christ, rather as Christ leads us the way, may we see that he does not fail to reveal God to us. It is our own willingness to see him all the way so that we may know the Lord well.

La Epifanía. Tres hombres sabios buscaban al rey recién nacido. Ellos habían oído hablar de la profecía y lo encontraron a través de pistas celestiales que el niño nacerá. Viajaron desde el Oriente y buscaron al rey recién nacido siguiendo la estrella. (continua en la pagina próxima)

Los sabios buscaban la verdadera Sabiduría nacida como un hombre. Qué admirable. Estos sabios eran inteligentes y obviamente líderes en conocimiento y sabiduría. Sin embargo, no dejaron de encontrar la verdad hasta que fueron conducidos hacia la Verdad. Mis padres me han inculcado la importancia del conocimiento y la alfabetización. Para ellos, el conocimiento es la riqueza eterna, incorruptible y segura. Para ellos, el conocimiento es la clave para la vida. Tome nota de esto: El conocimiento es la clave para la vida. ¿Hasta dónde hemos llegado a medida que avanzamos en nuestros descubrimientos utilizando el conocimiento? Muy lejos. Hemos "descubierto" muchos misterios que nos desconcierta. De hecho, hemos ido tan lejos que hemos descubierto que podría haber vida además de la tierra. ¡Verdaderamente asombroso! Sí, hemos avanzado a alturas de conocimiento nunca antes conocidas. Avanzamos, pero también damos algo. La ecuación es simplemente la economía del progreso humano. Cuando sabemos más de los misterios que nos rodea en la vida humana, también sabemos menos de la Verdad verdadera, que es Dios. Los Magos hicieron lo contrario. Al descubrir las verdades sobre la vida humana, también aprendieron más de la Verdad verdadera. ¿Por qué? Porque no consideraban sus descubrimientos como independientes de la Verdad. Sabían que sus descubrimientos eran parte integral de la búsqueda de la Verdad. Los Sabios siguieron a la estrella brillante. Si seguimos la estrella brillante en lugar de seguir las iluminaciones humanas, veremos no sólo un brillo sino la luz del día. o0o La Epifanía significa manifestación. El Señor se manifestó a los sabios a través de la estrella, una visión familiar para estos astrónomos. Dios se nos manifiesta a través de lo familiar. En nuestra vida diaria, los acontecimientos comunes diarios son manifestaciones de Dios. Pero siempre nos volvemos hacia lo espectacular. En ese sentido, echamos mucho de menos. Recuerda: lo familiar es la forma en la que Dios se manifiesta siempre. o0o La Fiesta del Bautismo del Señor. La Navidad concluye con la celebración del Bautismo del Señor. En esta celebración, miramos a Jesús siendo bautizado por el Bautista y el Padre proclamándolo como su Hijo unigénito. El ministerio de Jesús comienza desde aquí. Antes de esto, él se había manifestado en la boda en Caná. En esa ocasión, Jesús protestó por hacer un milagro porque aún no era su momento. Pero con su madre suplicando por la causa de los recién casados, Jesús hizo el milagro de convertir el agua en vino. Ese milagro era igualmente celestial como todos los otros milagros que hizo durante su ministerio público. Al comenzar a caminar con Cristo, más bien como Cristo nos guía el camino, que podamos ver que él no deja de revelarnos a Dios. Es nuestra propia voluntad de verlo en todo el camino para que podamos conocer al Señor bien.

Eucharistic Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament The Baptism of the Lord “The Eucharist is the center and summit of the whole sacramental life, through which each Christian receives the saving power of the Redemption, beginning with the mystery of Baptism, in which we are buried into the death of Christ, in order to become sharers in His Resurrection, as the apostle teaches (cf. Rom 6: 3-5). In the light of this teaching, we see still more clearly the reason why the entire sacramental life of the Church and of each Christian reaches its summit and fullness in the Eucharist.” (Pope John Paul II) Please join us for Eucharistic Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Adoration is available in the chapel 24 hours every day. For adoration outside of the 24-hour regular Thursday schedule, call the office for instructions and to enlist. Everyone is welcome. Spend as much or as little time as you can. Thank you for offering our Lord this special hour. Expect God's blessing, and give Him thanks.
