Archdiocese of San Antonio Precautions for Returning to Mass

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

THE TRUE BREAD FROM HEAVEN:  Do I Have A Truly Healthy Diet (The Right Spiritual Diet)?

There are SO MANY advertisements for diets that tell you that they will make you into a new person (slim and strong).  Today’s readings tell us how we can truly become a new person.  With Jesus we can SLIM away the bad stuff, and become STRONG as your true self.

     God fed the Israelites in the desert with manna:  “I will rain down bread from heaven.”  Jesus says that he is the “true bread from heaven…whoever comes to me will never hunger.”  Jesus is better than pizza, tamales, steak, ice cream (add your favorite), etc.  Good food gives us energy and keeps us healthy.  Jesus gives our lives healing and health, meaning and energy.  Through Jesus we have energy to be joyful in ourselves, and energy to serve others out of love.

     The Israelites were told to only take a daily portion of the manna or it would go bad and get them sick.  In the Our Father we pray “gives us this day our daily bread.”  God wants us to have a daily relationship with His Son, Jesus, who is the bread of life.  If you want to be healthy, we need more than just going to God on special occasions (good ones and bad ones).  We need a daily diet of Jesus.  When we skip meals and do not have breakfast, lunch, and dinner, we can become weak without much energy.  I would suggest that we need:  1) Prayer time for breakfast (better than a protein bar); 2) Scripture reading for lunch (better than Power-Aid or 5 hour energy); and 3) Holy Communion for dinner (better than your favorite meal); or we become spiritually weak and give in to the bad habits of our “old self,” rather than being transformed into the “new self” that is formed in the image of Jesus.

     Let Jesus guide your thinking to overcome your confused thinking and “deceitful desires” (anger, jealousy, lust, greed, pride).  Our world gets trapped in a lot of bad thinking because we do not seek Jesus’ guidance.  We often react, rather than respond, to many things just with our immediate feelings and desires, not choosing what is good for the long run, and for everyone.  Be a new person in Christ!  Have a healthy, daily diet of Jesus, the true bread from heaven!

Mensaje del Pastor

EL VERDADERO PAN DEL CIELO: ¿TENGO UNA DIETA VERDADERAMENTE SALUDABLE (la dieta espiritual correcta)?

Hay TANTOS anuncios de dietas que te dicen que te convertirán en una nueva persona (delgada y fuerte).  Las lecturas de hoy nos dicen cómo podemos realmente convertirnos en una nueva persona.  Con Jesús podemos adelgazar las cosas malas, y llegar a ser FUERTES como su verdadero yo.     

Dios alimentó a los israelitas en el desierto con maná: "Lloveré pan del cielo".  Jesús dice que él es el "verdadero pan del cielo... el que venga a mí nunca tendrá hambre".  Jesús es mejor que la pizza, tamales, bistec, helado (añadir su favorito), etc.  La buena comida nos da energía y nos mantiene sanos.  Jesús da a nuestras vidas sanación y salud, significado y energía.  A través de Jesús tenemos energía para ser alegres en nosotros mismos, y energía para servir a los demás por amor.

A los israelitas se les dijo que sólo tomaran una porción diaria del maná o iría mal y los enfermaría.  En el Padre Nuestro oramos "danos nuestro pan de cada día".  Dios quiere que tengamos una relación diaria con Su Hijo, Jesús, que es el pan de vida.  Si quieres estar sano, necesitamos algo más que ir a Dios en ocasiones especiales (buenas y malas).  Necesitamos una dieta diaria de Jesús.  Cuando nos saltamos las comidas y no desayunamos, almorzamos y cenamos, podemos debilitarnos sin mucha energía.  Yo sugeriría que necesitamos: 1) Tiempo de oración para el desayuno (mejor que una barra de proteínas); 2) Lectura de las Escrituras para el almuerzo (mejor que la Ayuda de Poder o la energía de 5 horas); y 3) Santa Comunión para la cena (mejor que su comida favorita); o nos volvemos espiritualmente débiles y nos revemos a los malos hábitos de nuestro "viejo yo", en lugar de ser transformados en el "nuevo yo" que se forma a imagen de Jesús.

Deja que Jesús guíe tu pensamiento para superar tu pensamiento confuso y tus "deseos engañosos" (ira, celos, lujuria, avaricia, orgullo).  Nuestro mundo queda atrapado en un montón de mal pensamiento porque no buscamos la guía de Jesús.  A menudo reaccionamos, en lugar de responder, a muchas cosas solo con nuestros sentimientos y deseos inmediatos, sin elegir lo que es bueno a largo plazo y para todos.  ¡Sé una nueva persona en Cristo!  ¡Ten una dieta saludable y diaria de Jesús, el verdadero pan del cielo!
