Archdiocese of San Antonio Precautions for Returning to Mass

Guidelines for Mass Attendees

As we prepare to return to public celebration of Mass, here are some guidelines to ensure the safety and well-being of our local Church.

1. If you are feeling ill, stay safe at home. We highly  encourage those who are vulnerable and people with underlying medical conditions continue  to participate in Mass via Parish live stream: www.ArchSA.org/covid-19#livestreams Mass from San Fernando Cathedral will continue to be broadcast on CTSA on Spectrum Channel 15, Roku,  Amazon Fire, Facebook, YouTube, and Vimeo.  Find details here: www.ArchSA.org/pastoral-ministries

2. Wash hands thoroughly before coming to the Church.

3. The use of masks or face coverings is not required for those who are fully vaccinated. We highly encourge those who are not vaccinated to wear masks or face coverings. 

4. Social distancing is encouraged if possible, but not required.

5. Holy Communion on the tongue is once again permitted.

6. Follow the instructions of the ushers as you enter and leave the Church.

Sanitation. All parishes will be sanitizing pews, entrances, restrooms, and all other facilities used regularly.

A Message from Fr. Bob

SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT:  Prepare the way of the Lord, who is bringing us back to Him! Advent prepares us for Christmas by helping us to be inwardly transformed.  Here is God’s plan:

  1. Be confident that God wants to do a deep work in you:  “I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will continue to complete it.”
  2. Let God lead you in being transformed:  “God is leading Israel in joy by the light of His glory, with mercy and justice for company.”  Transformed by light overcoming darkness; being merciful and just in the way you treat others; and having a new joy in your life.
  3. Repent of your sins and accept Jesus’ forgiveness:  “John proclaimed a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.”  Sin eats away at you, and keeps you stuck in your life.  When you repent, and experience Jesus’ forgiveness, you have deep peace and inner freedom.
  4. God wants to make straight paths in your life (You cannot do it alone.  You need Jesus to accompany you, and walk with you in your life, with his power and his love):
  • Filling in the valleys (the low points, depression, regrets, and sorrows of your life).
  • Making low the mountains (the things in your life that seem too big and difficult).
  • Making straight the winding roads (the confusing times when you feel lost, and going in circles).
  • Making smooth the rough ways (the hurtful, difficult, challenging times).

      5. God’s plan is that love will increase in us as we prepare for Christmas (“God so loved the world that He sent us His only beloved Son”):  “I pray that your love may increase ever more and more…so you may be pure and blameless, filled with the fruit of righteousness.”  This love will give you a pure heart, and you will do what is right.              

Prepare us Lord, and transform us for the coming of Jesus!

Mensaje del Pastor

SEGUNDO DOMINGO DE ADVIENTO: ¡Preparen el camino del Señor, que nos trae de regreso a Él! El Adviento nos prepara para la Navidad ayudándonos a ser transformados interiormente. Este es el plan de Dios:

1) Confía en que Dios quiere hacer una obra profunda en ti: “Tengo confianza en esto, que el que comenzó una buena obra en ti la seguirá cumpliendo”.

2) Deje que Dios lo guíe a ser transformado: "Dios está guiando a Israel con gozo a la luz de su gloria, con misericordia y justicia por compañía". Transformado por la luz superando la oscuridad; ser misericordioso y justo en la forma en que trata a los demás; y tener una nueva alegría en tu vida.

3) Arrepiéntanse de sus pecados y acepten el perdón de Jesús: "Juan proclamó un bautismo de arrepentimiento para el perdón de los pecados". El pecado te carmete y te mantiene atrapado en tu vida. Cuando te arrepientes y experimentas el perdón de Jesús, tienes una paz profunda y libertad interior.

4) Dios quiere hacer senderos rectos en tu vida (No puedes hacerlo solo. Necesitas que Jesús te acompañe, y camine contigo en tu vida, con su poder y su amor):

  •  Llenar los valles (los puntos bajos, la depresión, los lamentos y las penas de tu vida).
  • Hacer bajas las montañas (las cosas de tu vida que parecen demasiado grandes y difíciles).
  • Enderezar los caminos sinuosos (los momentos confusos en los que te sientes perdido y vas en círculos).
  • Allanar los caminos difíciles (los tiempos dolorosos, difíciles, desafiantes).

5) El plan de Dios es que el amor aumente en nosotros mientras nos preparamos para la Navidad (“Tanto amó Dios al mundo que nos envió a su único Hijo amado”): “Oro para que tu amor aumente cada vez más... para que puedan ser puros y sin mancha, llenos del fruto de la justicia”. Este amor te dará un corazón puro y harás lo correcto.                                     ¡Prepáranos Señor y transfórmanos para la venida de Jesús!
