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 Father Bob

Having Faith and Trust in God’s Unfolding Plan in Challenging Times

     We do not always see immediate answers when we are dealing with difficult situations (“misery, strife (arguing), violence, loud disagreements”).  We are called to trust that God’s plan will unfold in its own time:  The answer “still has its own time, presses on to fulfillment and will not disappoint; if it delays, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not be late.”  We are called to be people who do not give up, but have trust and faith.  Things will not always go the way you want, but do you believe that God’s plans are better than yours.

     Sometimes we feel that our prayers are not being answered because we do not have enough faith.  Jesus in the gospel tells us that we can increase our faith, not so much by praying for more faith, but by acting on whatever faith we have, and believing that God can do more than we think with a small amount of faith.  He says that if you have the faith the size of a mustard seed (a very small), you can tell a tree to be uprooted and planted into the sea and it would obey.  So reach out and act on your faith, rather wondering whether you have enough.  Jesus, I trust in you.  I entrust this person or situation to you.  You are trustworthy and through your death and resurrection we are all conquerors with you over any situation that we deal with.

     Finally, we are told by St. Paul to call on, and trust in, the Holy Spirit to give us special strength in challenging times.  He says, “Stir into a flame the gift of the Holy Spirit…For God did not give us a Spirit of cowardice, but rather of power, love and self-control…bear your share of hardship for the gospel with the strength that comes from God.”  He says, “Guard the rich trust of faith and love that are in Christ Jesus, with the help of the Holy Spirit who dwells within us.”  Let us ask the Holy Spirit to deepen our trust in Jesus and all that he has done for us.  Trust that you have through the Holy Spirit a share in the power, love and self-control that God gives you.  You do not have to be controlled by your fears or out-of-control feelings and reactions.  You can find the strength to not give up easily; to call on the Holy Spirit, and to reach out, and act, on your mustard seed of faith that can truly move trees and mountains. 

   Mensaje de Padre Bob

Tener Fe y Confianza en el Plan de Desarrollo de Dios en Tiempos Difíciles

      No siempre vemos respuestas inmediatas cuando estamos lidiando con situaciones difíciles ("miseria, lucha (discutir), violencia, desacuerdos fuertes").  Estamos llamados a confiar en que el plan de Dios se desarrollará en su propio tiempo: La respuesta "todavía tiene su propio tiempo, sigue adelante hacia el cumplimiento y no decepcionará; si se retrasa, espérelo; seguramente llegará; no será tarde".  Estamos llamados a ser personas que no se rinden, sino que tienen confianza y fe.  Las cosas no siempre saldrán como quieres, pero ¿crees que los planes de Dios son mejores que los tuyos?

     A veces sentimos que nuestras oraciones no están siendo contestadas porque no tenemos suficiente fe.  Jesús en el evangelio nos dice que podemos aumentar nuestra fe, no tanto orando por más fe, sino actuando sobre cualquier fe que tengamos, y creyendo que Dios puede hacer más de lo que pensamos con una pequeña cantidad de fe.  Él dice que si tienes la fe del tamaño de una semilla de mostaza (una muy pequeña), puedes decirle a un árbol que sea arrancado de raíz y plantado en el mar y obedecería.  Así que extiende la mano y actúa según tu fe, en lugar de preguntarte si tienes suficiente.  Jesús, confío en ti.  Te encomiendo esta persona o situación.  Eres digno de confianza y a través de tu muerte y resurrección todos somos conquistadores contigo sobre cualquier situación con la que lidiemos.

     Finalmente, San Pablo nos dice que invoquemos y confiemos en el Espíritu Santo para que nos dé una fuerza especial en tiempos difíciles.  Él dice: "Agita en una llama el don del Espíritu Santo... Porque Dios no nos dio un Espíritu de cobardía, sino de poder, amor y autocontrol... lleva tu parte de dificultades por el evangelio con la fuerza que viene de Dios".  Él dice: "Guarda la rica confianza de fe y amor que hay en Cristo Jesús, con la ayuda del Espíritu Santo que mora dentro de nosotros".  Pidamos al Espíritu Santo que profundice nuestra confianza en Jesús y en todo lo que ha hecho por nosotros.  Confía en que tienes a través del Espíritu Santo una participación en el poder, el amor y el autocontrol que Dios te da.  No tienes que ser controlado por tus miedos o sentimientos y reacciones fuera de control.  Puedes encontrar la fuerza para no rendirte fácilmente; invocar al Espíritu Santo, y extender la mano, y actuar, sobre tu semilla de mostaza de fe que realmente puede mover árboles y montañas.
