FEASTS OF SAINT LAWRENCE AND SAINT CLARE
Dear Saint Lawrence
the Martyr Community,
This weekend of August 10th
and 11th, we at Saint
Lawrence
the
Martyr
Catholic Parish experience a
convergences of special
celebrations.
These
celebrations are unique to
our community because of
the 54th year of the founding
of Saint Lawrence the Martyr
Parish (1959), and the feast
days of the patronal Saints
of our Parish Church Saint
Lawrence - August 10th) and
of the city our Church is
located in, as well as
co-patroness of our diocese
(Saint Clare – August 11th).
Every year the Feast Day of
each Church is to be
celebrated and according to
liturgical guidelines, can
actually be transferred to the
weekend
in
order
to
celebrate it as a community
during the regular weekend
Mass celebrations. This year
we have another liturgical
factor in the mix – the
situation that August 11th is
the Feast Day of Saint Clare
of Assisi and falls on a
Sunday.
Normally, the celebration of
a Sunday takes priority over
celebrations of the feast days
of Saints, however, because

El año próximo, 10 de Agosto de 2014,
tendremos que celebrar el día festivo de
San Lorenzo y los cincuenta y cinco años
de nuestra parroquia en una manera muy
especial, ya que caerá en Domingo.
Next year, August 10, 2014, we will really
have to celebrate the patronal feast day
of Saint Lawrence and the 55th years of
our parish in a special way as it falls on
Sunday.
Because of the Decree of the Year of
Faith, our community does get to enjoy a
special
spiritual
opportunity
this
weekend because of our patronal feast.
Bishop McGrath has designated each
church, on its patronal feast, a site to
Saint Lawrence
participate in receiving a plenary
indulgence to everyone who, “following
the due norms, undertakes the special prescripts to obtain
them”
(see
http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/tribunals/
apost_penit/documents/rc_trib_appen_doc_20120914_annusfidei_en.html ).
From the liturgical matrix I described above, you can see that
Saint Clare is placed in high regards by the Diocese of San Jose
because of her patronage for us here in Santa Clara, which is
also located in the Santa Clara Valley.
To learn the basic life story of this important Saint in the life of
our city and of our Diocese, you can Google ‘Saint Clare’ for
different articles or read page 11 – Liturgy Corner, or the
following: http://www.catholic.org/saints/saint.php?saint_id=215 .
If you ever get a chance, visit the Poor Clare Monastery which is
located in our diocese. The nuns dress and live their lives in a
cloistered monastery the same way that Mother Saint Clare did
800 years ago when she began the Order of Poor Clares in
1212. I have the privilege to celebrate with them their daily
Mass at 7am a few times each year and I can sense the peace
and
prayerfulness of their lives and the monastery. They
always look so happy and cheerful, especially as they receive
Jesus in Holy Communion.
On this special weekend for the community of Saint Lawrence
the Martyr Church in Santa Clara, we ask the intercession of
Saint Lawrence and Saint Clare. Please pray for us!
In Christ,
Fr. Ernesto Orci, Pastor
Saint Clare
Por el decreto del Año de Fe, nuestra
comunidad puede gozar de una
oportunidad espiritual especial este fin
de semana, por nuestra fiesta patronal. El
Obispo McGrath a designado que cada
iglesia, el la fiesta de su patrón/a un sitio
para participar en recibir una indulgencia
plenaria a todo quien “siguiendo las
emprenda las reglas especiales para
debidas normas,
obtenerlas” (vean
http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/tribunals/apost_penit/
documents/rc_trib_appen_doc_20120914_annus-fidei_sp.html).
De la matriz litúrgica que describí arriba, pueden ver que
Sta. Clara tiene un lugar muy alto en la diócesis de San José,
por patrocinarnos aquí en Santa Clara, que también se ubica en
el valle de Santa Clara. Para aprender la historia de la vida de
esta santa importante en la vida de nuestra ciudad y nuestra
diócesis, pueden hacer Google “Santa Clara de Asís” para
encontrar diferentes artículos o leer lo siguiente:
http://www.es.catholic.net/santoral/articulo.php?id=515.
Si llegan a tener la oportunidad, visiten el Poor Clare Monastery
(Monasterio de las Clarisas Pobres) que se encuentra en nuestra
diócesis. Las religiosas viven sus vidas en un monasterio
enclaustrado, de la misma manera que lo hizo la Madre Sta.
Clara hace 800 años cuando comenzó la Orden de las Clarisas
Pobres en 1212. He tenido el privilegio de celebrar con ellas en
su misa diaria a las 7 am algunas veces cada año y puedo sentir
la paz y sentido de oración de sus vidas y el monasterio. Ellas
siempre se ven tan felices y contentas, especialmente al recibir
a Nuestro Señor en la Santa Comunión.
En este fin de semana especial para la comunidad de la iglesia
de San Lorenzo el Mártir en Santa Clara, pedimos la intercesión
de San Lorenzo y Sta. Clara. ¡Por favor oren por nosotros!
En Cristo,
Fr. Ernesto Orci, Párroco

PLENARY INDULGENCE FOR THE YEAR OF FAITH
“Throughout the Year of Faith — established from 11
October 2012 to 24 November 2013 — all individual
members of the faithful who are truly repentant, have
duly received the Sacrament of Penance and Holy
Communion and who pray for the intentions of the
Supreme Pontiff may receive the Plenary Indulgence in
remission of the temporal punishment for their sins,
imparted through God’s mercy and applicable in suffrage
to the souls of the deceased:
a. every time they take part in at least three homilies
preached or attend at least three lectures on the
Proceedings of the Second Vatican Council and on the
Articles of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, in any
church or suitable place;
b. every time they go as pilgrims to a Papal Basilica, a
Christian catacomb, a cathedral church, a sacred place
designated by the local Ordinary for the Year of Faith (for
example, the Minor Basilicas and Shrines dedicated to
the Blessed Virgin Mary, to the Holy Apostles or to the
Holy Patrons), and take part there in some sacred
function or at least pause in recollection for a suitable
length of time with devout meditation, concluding with the
recitation of the Our Father, the Profession of Faith in
any legitimate form, invocations to the Blessed Virgin
Mary or, depending on the case, to the Holy Apostles or
Patrons;
c. every time when, on the days determined by the local
Ordinary for the Year of Faith (such as, for example, the
Solemnities of the Lord and of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
the Feasts of the Holy Apostles and Patrons and of the
Chair of St Peter), in any sacred place, they take part in
a solemn Eucharistic celebration or in the Liturgy of the
Hours, adding the Profession of Faith in any legitimate
form;
d. a day freely chosen during the Year of Faith on which
to make a devout visit to the baptistery or other place in
which they received the sacrament of Baptism, if they
renew their baptismal promises in any legitimate form.
Diocesan or Eparchial Bishops and those who are legally
equivalent to them, on the most appropriate day in this
period, on the occasion of the principal celebration (for
example, 24 November 2013, on the Solemnity of Our
Lord Jesus Christ, Universal King, with which the Year of
Faith will end) will be able to impart the Papal Blessing
with the Plenary Indulgence from which all the faithful
who receive this Blessing devoutly may benefit.
Faithful who are truly repentant and are unable to take
part in the solemn celebrations for serious reasons (such
as, for example all the nuns who live in perpetually
cloistered monasteries, anchorites and the hermits,
prisoners, the elderly, the sick, and likewise those who,
in hospital or in other places for treatment serve the sick
permanently…), will gain the Plenary Indulgence on the
same conditions, if, united in mind and spirit with the
faithful present, especially at a moment when the words
of the Supreme Pontiff or of the Diocesan Bishops are
broadcast via the television or radio, they recite at home,
or wherever their impediment obliges them to be (for
example, in the monastery chapel, in hospital, in a clinic,
in prison...), the Our Father, the Profession of faith in any
legitimate form and other prayers in conformity with the
objectives of the Year of Faith, offering up their suffering
or the hardship in their lives.”

Saint Clare of Assisi was born Chiara Offreduccio. She is Cofoundress
of the Order of Poor Ladies, or Clares and wrote their Rule of Life the first monas c rule known to have been wri en by a woman.
She was born at Assisi, 16 July, 1194 and died there 11 August,
1253.
From her earliest years. Clare seems to have been endowed with
the rarest virtues. She was eighteen when Saint Francis came to
preach the Lenten course in San Giorgio at Assisi. The inspired
words of the Poverello kindled a flame in the heart of Clare; she
sought him out secretly and begged him to help her that she too
might live "a er the manner of the holy Gospel". Saint Francis
promised to assist her. On Palm Sunday, Clare, arrayed in all her
finery, a ended high Mass, but when the others pressed forward to
the altar-rail to receive a palm branch, she remained in her place as
if rapt in a dream. That night she secretly le her father's house, by
Saint Francis's advice and, accompanied by others, proceeded to
the chapel of the Porziuncula, where Saint Francis and his disciples
met her. Clare then laid aside her rich dress, and Saint Francis,
having cut off her hair, clothed her in a rough tunic and a thick veil,
and in this way Clare vowed herself to the service of Jesus Christ.
This was 20 March, 1212.
When, in 1234, the army of Frederick II was devasta ng the valley of
Spoleto, the soldiers, preparing an assault upon Assisi, scaled the
walls of San Damiano by night, spreading terror among the
community. Clare, calmly rising from her sick bed, and taking the
ciborium, proceeded to face the invaders at an open window
against which they had already placed a ladder. As she raised the
Blessed Sacrament on high, the soldiers who were about to enter
the monastery fell backward as if dazzled, and the others who were
ready to follow them took flight. It is due to this incident that Saint
Clare is generally represented in art bearing a ciborium.

“Am I waiting for the “right” time to
become a good steward? Do I plan to
share my time and talents “later?”
Today’s Gospel warns those who are procrastinating
about stewardship to be prepared — “at an hour you
do not expect, the Son of Man will come.””
