Our Catholic custom is to offer prayers for our deceased relatives &
friends or in thanksgiving for gifts received, or for an answer to our
needs. We encourage the parishioners of St. John Vianney to
participate in this age-old practice of having Masses
celebrated for your special intentions. There is usually a donation
for celebrating a particular Mass whether it be on the day or closest
day to a death anniversary of parent, spouse, or relative or when a
special grace has been
The procedure for scheduling a Mass is to either call or come in to
the parish office and speak with the secretary during the regular

Isaiah/Isaias 60:1-6
Ephesians/Efesios 3:2-3a, 5-6
The Feast of the
Epiphany has a
different emphasis in
the church of the East
than it does in the
West. In the East it
commemorates the
Lord’s baptism, while
in the West it
commemorates the
revelation of Christ to
the Gentiles,
represented by magi.
In the West it became a feast on January 6 in the late fourth
The text from Isaiah calls the people of Israel to
recognize God’s presence in their midst, “Rise up in
splendor, Jerusalem” Your light has come” (v1). Though
“darkness covers the earth,” the prophet goes on to say,
“upon you the Lord shines… Nations shall walk by your
light” (vv 2-3) This text’s imagery of “ caravans of camels”
and “dromedaries of Midian and Ephah” (v6) connects with
the story of the magi. Over the centuries we have imagined
this group of mysterious visitors traveling to Bethlehem
with their exotic beasts of burden.
In Ephesians we hear that what was revealed to Paul
“by revelation” (v3) is something new. It “was not made
known to people in other generations” but only now has
been revealed “by the Spirit” (v5). The message is this:
“the Gentiles are coheirs.., copartners in the promise in
Christ Jesus” (v6).
Only from Matthew do we hear the story of the
magi, as a story it serves to show us that Jesus’ birth has
universal significance; he came to save not just his own
people but all people. Later tradition ascribes names,
nationalities and numbers to the magi, but Matthew simply
presents them as foreigners who can read the heavens and
discover that the sky is announcing the birth of “the
newborn king of the Jews” (v2). For the ancients, the stars
were indicators of divine revelation. Their response to
discovering “the child with Mary his mother” was one of
joy as they “offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and
Myrrh” (v11).
For Reflection: Is my life’s journey one of following the
star of the Christ Child, or am I following another star”
Do I believe that salvation is for al or just for “God’s
chosen ones”?
Pro-Life Notes
“Each of us has his or her own personal identity
and is capable of entering into dialogue with others and with God himself.”
— Pope Francis, Laudato Si, no. 81
Psalms/Salmos 72: 1-2,7-8, 10-11, 12-13
Matthew/ Mateo 2: 1-12
El que ha nacido en Belén
no es sólo el rey de los
judíos sino el salvador del mundo, de judíos
y gentiles; el que ha venido a liberar tanto
a los que estaban bajo la ley de Moisés
como a los que padecían el despotismo de
las estrellas.

Weekly Stewardship Scripture Reflections
The three kings in today’s Gospel traveled a great distance at considerable cost to offer their richest gifts
to the Infant Jesus. How far will I go and what will I
offer to do homage to this newborn King and Savior?
Por los niños por nacer en
todos los lugares para que
cada niño sea acogido con
alegría, como el Niño Jesús fue
acogido por los Reyes Magos;
Roguemos al Señor
“Cada uno de nosotros tiene en sí una
identidad personal, capaz de entrar en
diálogo con los demás y con el mismo Dios”.
— Papa Francisco, Laudato si’, 81
Today we celebrate the feast of the
Epiphany, where the Magi find the
newborn king and offer him gifts of
gold, frankincense and myrrh.
In the spirit of the Magi, please put your gift in
the St. Vincent de Paul Poor Box so that comfort and peace can once again be given to a newborn child.

Nuestra costumbre católica es ofrecer oraciones por
nuestros familiares y amigos difuntos, o en acción de
gracias por los dones recibidos, o por responder a
nuestras plegarias. Invitamos a los Parroquianos de St.
John Vianney a participar en esta antigua practica de
ofrecer la celebración de la Misa por su intención
especial. Normalmente se pide una donación para
celebrar una Misa en especial, ya sea en el día o una
fecha muy cercana al aniversario del fallecimiento de los
padres, esposos, o familiares o cuando una gracia se ha

Please Join us
Due to First Friday falling on New Year’s day, which is the
Holy Day of Obligation known as Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, Eucharistic Adoration will be held the second
Friday of the month on January 8, 2016. So let us come
before the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament exposed in the
Monstrance to thank Him for the many blessings we received in 2015 and to thank Him for all the graces, blessings and love He will pour down upon each of us in 2016.
He knows what is best for each of us and He does not
cause bad things to happen, but He allows them for our
own good. We may not understand them while in this
world, but He will reveal it to us when we meet Him face to
face and account for our obedience or disobedience during
this life on earth. Let us get the graces and blessings, especially during this year of Mercy declared by Pope Francis, to
be disciples by spending some time in HIS presence. Come
and bring a friend on Friday, January 8, 2016 between
8:00AM and 7:00PM when Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament
will be Exposed in the Monstrance. NOTE: If you would
like to commit to a particular time monthly or have any
questions, please call Herb Blanchard at 678-945-7585 or e
-mail me at [email protected] Please sign in and
out on the table in the rear of the chapel so we can be
sure that someone is visiting our Lord all the time He is
exposed in the Monstrance. Thanks for your time spent
with HIM!

Pray for Interreligious Dialogue. That sincere dialogue among men and
women of different faiths may produce the fruits of peace and justice.
Christian Unity. That by means of dialogue and fraternal charity and
with the grace of the Holy Spirit, Christians may overcome divisions.

Atheism is on the rise. Skeptical thinkers attack belief in God as
irrational or, even worse, dangerous. The so-called New Atheism has
attracted millions of young people thanks to bestselling books such
as The God Delusion and God Is Not Great. How should Christians
respond? How can we turn the tide of secularism and draw people
back to God?
