EL SACRAMENTO DE LA UNCION DE LOS ENFERMOS es disponible no solamente para ellos en peligro de muerte. De hecho, los que
están enfermos del cuerpo, mente, o alma, es decir, físicamente, psicológicamente, o espiritualmente, los que tienen la delicadeza de edad,
los que van a tener cirugía pronto, los con adicciones a drogas, alcohol,
pornografía, juegos, brujería, comida, etc.) pueden recibirlo. Según el
catecismo de nuestra iglesia el sacramento de la unción de los enfermos
sirve para dar fortaleza, paz, y valor para sobrepasar dificultades que
van con una enfermedad grave o de edad avanzada, inclusive contra la tentación de desaliento. Esta asistencia del Señor quiere conducir al enfermo a la curación del alma, sino también del cuerpo, si tal es la
voluntad de Dios". Además, según la escritura del mismo texto del rito “¿Está enfermo alguno de vosotros? Llame a los presbíteros de la Iglesia, y que recen sobre él, después de ungirlo con óleo, en nombre
del Señor.” Por lo tanto, es el enfermo o la enferma (o si no es posible su familiar) que toma la iniciativa
a llamar el párroco Padre Paco (229-380-0757). Es posible recibir este sacramento no solamente en un
hospital o una casa, sino también en la iglesia después la misa (domingo o durante la semana).
¿Las Próximas Pláticas Pre-Bautismales? Para el sacramento de bautismo de su niño/a, se requiere que los padres y padrinos asistan en una clase pre bautismal. La fecha y la
hora de la próximas plática dependen de los que quieren tener bautizados sus niños. Por eso,
favor llame la oficina parroquial y dejar con el párroco (o con la maquina si no está) su nombre indicando su interés en tener bautizado su hijo(a). Después de inscribirse un número suficiente de interesados, se les avisarán la fecha de la próxima pláticas pre-bautismales.
Sala disponible para niños intranquilos: La
sala en el frente de la iglesia, la misma que se usa
para confesiones, también sierva como una sala por
niñitos que se porten a veces intranquilos durante la
Misa. Hay ahora un
sistema de sonido en
esta sala así que los padres de estos niños intranquilos pueden ver y
oír la Misa de allí. El
uso de esta sala por los
padres para tales niñitos ayuda con la celebración correcta de la Misa, especialmente durante la liturgia de la palabra cuando
los lectores proclamen las escrituras y el padre da su
homilía. Gracias por su colaboración.
Corresponsabilidad Pensamiento por el 3ra. domingo. La carta pastoral de los
obispos estadounidenses sobre
la Administración de los Bienes de Dios respalda la lectura
de hoy de la 1 de Corintios:
“Puesto que sus miembros individuales constituyen
colectivamente el Cuerpo de Cristo, la salud y bienestar de ese cuerpo son la responsabilidad de sus
miembros – la responsabilidad personal de cada uno
de nosotros. Somos todos Administradores de los
Bienes de la Iglesia.”

He taught in their synagogues and was praised by all.
He came to Nazareth, where he had grown up,
and went according to his custom into the synagogue
on the Sabbath day. He stood up to read and was handed
a scroll of the prophet Isaiah.” (Luke 1)

THE SOUTHERN CROSS, our diocesan newspaper, provides a voice
of Catholic insight. Read the Southern Cross and put “faith” in your
opinions. Your use of an envelope,
or check to St. Mary parish marked for the Southern
Cross, supports its distribution. We are grateful to those,
about 1/3 of our parish, who have remitted payment thus
saving the parish from reaching into its operating budget
to pay the diocesan assessment for it. Parishioners who
have yet to do so are asked to please remit a payment if
not of the subscription fee ($30) then of an amount as
their means permit. Southern Cross envelopes can be
found on the table in the back of the church. Thank you.

arrange a Mass intention, either for a weekend or weekday.

FAQs About Jubilee Year of Mercy
What Are Holy Doors?
One of the central components of the Jubilee of
Mercy is the designated
Holy Doors in dioceses and
other locales throughout the
world. Their opening at the
outset of this Jubilee Year,
signifies a Door of Mercy
through which anyone who
enters will experience the love of God who
consoles, pardons, and instils hope. All
members of the faithful will have opportunity to make a pilgrimage to their local Holy
Door during the Jubilee. This pilgrimage is
to be a journey of walking closer with God
and discovering moments of grace and spiritual renewal. The designated Holy Door in
our diocese is at the cathedral in Savannah
and our diocesan pilgrimage is Saturday
February 20th (for more information please
call the parish office or email our pastor ).
This Jubilee Year of
Mercy: How might we
live it out daily? Among
the many ways, recite the
prayer of Pope Francis for
this year of Mercy. It can be
found on the yellow sheets found on a table
in the back of our church; take a sheet and
pray it frequently, even daily. Also, pray
over the seven Spiritual Works of Mercy
listed below then select one or more to practice throughout this year.
1. To counsel the doubtful
2. To instruct the ignorant
3. To admonish the sinner
4. To comfort the sorrowful
5. To forgive all injuries
6. To bear wrongs patiently
7. To pray for the living and the dead

The catechism of the
Church reminds us that
the first grace of the
Sacrament of the
Anointing of the Sick is
to give strength, peace
and courage to help
overcome difficulties that go with the condition of
serious illness or the frailty of old age. “This grace
is a gift of the Holy Spirit, who renews trust and
faith in God and strengthens against the temptation
to discouragement. This assistance from the Lord
by the power of his Spirit is meant to lead the sick
person to healing of the soul, but also of the body if
such is God's will.” The scriptural text of the brief
rite states that “if there is anyone sick among you
let them send for the priests of the church”. Thus it
is the sick person or “caregiver” who is expected to
initiate the call upon the church for this Sacrament.
Those who are ill of body, mind, or soul, whether
physically, psychologically or spiritually, including
addictions (drugs, alcohol, pornography, gambling,
food, etc.) or facing surgery or ailing due to the
frailty of age, and who desire to receive this Sacrament are expected to contact our pastor, Fr. Gillespie, so he can arrange its administering. This sacraThe Benedictine Abbey in Jerusalem was

our littlest parishioners will
act their age at
times during
Mass by becoming restless or
vocal. When this
occurs, especially during the
Liturgy of the Word when parishioners are to listen
attentively to the Scripture readings and homily,
parents will be pleased to know that our Confessional Room has a revamped sound system where
Mass can be heard as well as viewed. There children under proper supervision can enjoy space for
crawling, for coloring in books parents might bring,
even for praying as they attend Mass. Please note
the Quiet Room always remains a reserved space
for Mass and is not to become a play room.
