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. Wear a face mask before entering the Church and throughout the Mass.

4. Bring hand sanitizer, your own missal or other Mass aids.

5. Always maintain 6 feet between you and others.

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

Communion. Persons should come forward in a single communion line in the aisle designated at six-foot intervals. Masks should be worn in the communion line and then lowered while in line before approaching the Communion Minister. After communion the mask should be raised immediately. Communion will be received in the hand only.

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

Attendance Capacity. Because seating is limited due to social distancing, you may be asked to attend at another time or view Mass by live streaming.

A Message from Fr. Bob

SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT:  THE BELOVED SONS.

     Abraham lived approximately 2,000 years before Jesus.  It is amazing how God was already preparing us for His Son, Jesus, even at the time of Abraham.  Abraham who was childless had finally had a child, a son, Isaac, at the age of 100.  God then tells him to offer his son as a sacrifice to God.  In this passage Isaac is described by God as:  “Your only one, whom you love…your own beloved son…your beloved son.”  Abraham obeyed and did not withhold his son until God sent his angel to stop him.  God said that his would lead to many blessings for his descendants and that all nations would find blessing through his descendants.

  When Jesus is baptized God calls him “my beloved Son.”  In today’s gospel of the Transfiguration of Jesus God calls him again, “my beloved Son.”  In John 3:16 we are told that “God so loved the world that He sent us his beloved Son.”  In our second reading from Romans it says that “God did not spare his own Son, but handed him over for us all.”  Abraham obeyed God and did not have to kill his beloved son.  We have all become blessed because Jesus obeyed God's call to hand over his life for the good of us all, so that we could be freed from sin and could share in a new life, a transfigured life, through Jesus.  Isn’t this amazing!!??  Through Abraham’s beloved son, and God’s beloved Son we all can become beloved sons and daughters of God.  Realize that God has loved you so much from all eternity, and has always had an amazing plan to show you how much He loves you!  You are beloved.  You are loved!

Mensaje del Pastor

SEGUNDO DOMINGO DE CUARESMA: LOS HIJOS AMADOS.

     Abraham vivió aproximadamente 2000 años antes de Jesús. Es asombroso cómo Dios ya nos estaba preparando para Su Hijo, Jesús, incluso en la época de Abraham. Abraham, que no tenía hijos, finalmente tuvo un hijo, Isaac, a la edad de 100 años. Entonces Dios le dice que ofrezca a su hijo como sacrificio a Dios. En este pasaje, Dios describe a Isaac como: "Tu único, a quien amas ... tu propio hijo amado ... tu hijo amado". Abraham obedeció y no retuvo a su hijo hasta que Dios envió a su ángel para detenerlo. Dios dijo que la suya conduciría a muchas bendiciones para sus descendientes y que todas las naciones encontrarían bendiciones a través de sus descendientes.

     Cuando Jesús es bautizado, Dios lo llama "mi Hijo amado". En el evangelio de hoy de la Transfiguración de Jesús, Dios lo llama nuevamente, "mi Hijo amado". En Juan 3:16 se nos dice que "tanto amó Dios al mundo que nos envió a su Hijo amado". En nuestra segunda lectura de Romanos dice que "Dios no escatimó ni a su propio Hijo, sino que lo entregó por todos nosotros". Abraham obedeció a Dios y no tuvo que matar a su amado hijo. Todos hemos sido bendecidos porque Jesús obedeció el llamado de Dios de entregar su vida por el bien de todos, para que pudiéramos ser libres del pecado y compartir una nueva vida, una vida transfigurada, a través de Jesús. ¿No es esto increíble? A través del amado hijo de Abraham y del amado Hijo de Dios, todos podemos convertirnos en amados hijos e hijas de Dios. ¡Date cuenta de que Dios te ha amado tanto desde toda la eternidad y que siempre ha tenido un plan increíble para mostrarte cuánto te ama! Eres amado. ¡Eres amado!
