A Note from the Pastor
Fr. Michael Fragoso
Today is Divine Mercy Sunday. It is also the
Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy. I’ve written and
spoken about what this means for us. In the Old
Testament every 25 years was a Jubilee when all debts
were forgiven. Pope Francis threw away the calendar
and said that we need God’s mercy now. So he
declared this year an extra jubilee year so we could
know God’s mercy to it’s fullest.
The Holy Father has made it so that even those
burdened by not being able to leave their beds because
of illness or old age and even the prisoners can
experience the mercy of God.
What does it mean? If I steal something from you and
then beg your forgiveness and you forgive me it’s a
good thing. But I still owe you, out of justice, that
which I stole. Someone’s got to pay for it.
It’s the same thing when we sin. We offend God and
he forgives us in the sacrament of Reconciliation —
going to confession. But we still owe him the
punishment that is due to the sin. Because of the
graces and merits that have been given to the Church
when Jesus told Peter, “What you shall loose on earth
will be loosed in heaven…”, we are offered this special
grace which wipes away that punishment due to sin.
We are forgiven the sin and the punishment. The
stealing and what was stolen.
All we have to do is walk through the Holy Door of
Mercy, say a Creed, and a prayer for the Holy Father
and having no attachment to sin. That requires
confession and communion within 7 days so we are in
a state of grace.
Let us take advantage of this great grace the Holy
Father has offered us for ourselves and for our loved
ones who have passed away.

Sacramento de la Confesión
Domingo 2:00 pm.
Intenciones para la Misa
Intenciones para la Misa , $10 cada Misa.
Hoy es Domingo de la Misericordia. Es también el Año Extraordinario Jubilar de la Misericordia. He hablado y escrito acerca de lo que
esto significa para nosotros. En el Antiguo Testamento cada 25 años era un jubileo durante cual se perdonaban todas las deudas. El
Papa Francisco tiró el calendario por la ventana y dijo que necesitamos la misericordia de Dios ahora. Por eso declaró este año un año
jubilar adicional para que pudiéramos conocer la misericordia de Dios a su máximo.
El Santo Padre lo ha hecho de modo que incluso las personas oprimidos por no ser capaz de salir de la casa debido a una enfermedad o
vejez e incluso los presos puedan experimentar la misericordia de Dios.
Qué significa eso? Si robo algo de ti y luego pido perdón y me perdonas, es algo bueno. Pero todavía te debo, por justicia, lo que te
robé. Alguien tiene que pagar.
Es lo mismo cuando pecamos. Ofendemos a Dios, y Él nos perdona en el sacramento de la Reconciliación - por la confesión. Pero
todavía le debemos el castigo que se debe por cuenta del pecado. Debido a las gracias y méritos que se han dado a la Iglesia, cuando
Jesús le dijo a San Pedro: "Lo que sueltes en la tierra será soltado en el cielo ...", se nos ofrece esta gracia especial que nos perdona el
castigo debido al pecado. Se nos perdona el pecado y el castigo. El robo y lo que fue robado.
Todo lo que tenemos que hacer es caminar a través de la Puerta Santa de la Misericordia, rezar un Credo, y una oración por las
intenciones del Santo Padre y no tener apego al pecado. Eso requiere la confesión y la comunión dentro de los 7 días, de manera que
estemos en un estado de gracia.
Tomemos ventaja de esta gran gracia del Santo Padre nos ha ofrecido papa nosotros y para nuestros seres queridos que han fallecido.
