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

FATHER’S DAY:  God’s special blessing to all fathers.  Be strong, loving, listening, faith-filled fathers.  We need these kind of fathers very badly today.  Recommit yourselves, fathers, to always growing with Jesus and imitating God, the Father, in the way you live and act.

     God has power over the storms in our lives.  We see this in the first reading and the gospel.  Stormy times happen in families.  These storms are the difficult struggles that can happen.  There can be storms between the husband and wife, storms between the parents and children, and storms in the relationships of the children.  What storms are in your family’s life (also work life and other relationships) that you need to bring to Jesus?  He is in the boat with you, but you need to learn to go to him so he can say first to you, “Quiet!  Be still,” to calm you inside.  Then he will give you the peace, strength and wisdom to work with him in calming the storm of the situation that you are dealing with.  With Jesus say in faith to the situation, “Quiet!  Be still!”

     This is especially important for fathers.  You are called to take a leadership role in your family.  You are to be a leader like Jesus, not lording it over others, making your authority felt, but laying down your life in service to your wife and children.  You are to be a peacemaker, helping your family to stay connected.  You are to encourage and affirm the members of your family.  You are to protect them from the bad influences that can be in our society.    

    The second reading says, “The love of Christ impels us.”  Fathers (including priests who are spiritual fathers), let the love of Christ impel us to be strong and loving in our faith, and for our families.  No storm is too great if we face it with Jesus!  “Whoever is in Christ is a new creation; the old things have passed away; behold new things have come.”  No matter what struggles that you, and your family, have had in the past; all things can be made new with Jesus!

Mensaje del Pastor

DÍA DEL PADRE: La bendición especial de Dios para todos los padres. Sean padres fuertes, amorosos, atentos y llenos de fe. Hoy necesitamos mucho a este tipo de padres. Comprométanse, padres, a crecer siempre con Jesús e imitar a Dios Padre en su forma de vivir y actuar.

     Dios tiene poder sobre las tormentas en nuestras vidas. Vemos esto en la primera lectura y en el evangelio. Los tiempos tormentosos ocurren en las familias. Estas tormentas son las luchas difíciles que pueden suceder. Puede haber tormentas entre marido y mujer, tormentas entre padres e hijos y tormentas en las relaciones de los hijos. ¿Qué tormentas hay en la vida de tu familia (también en la vida laboral y otras relaciones) que necesitas llevar a Jesús? Él está en la barca contigo, pero debes aprender a acercarte a él para que pueda decirte primero: “¡Silencio! Quédate quieto”, para calmarte por dentro. Luego, te dará la paz, la fuerza y ​​la sabiduría para trabajar con él para calmar la tormenta de la situación que estás enfrentando. Con Jesús, di con fe a la situación: “¡Silencio! ¡Estate quieto!"

     Esto es especialmente importante para los padres. Estás llamado a asumir un papel de liderazgo en tu familia. Debes ser un líder como Jesús, sin dominar a los demás, no hacer sentir tu autoridad, sino entregando tu vida al servicio de tu esposa e

hijos. Debes ser un pacificador, ayudando a tu familia a mantenerse conectada. Debes alentar y afirmar a los miembros de tu familia. Debes protegerlos de las malas influencias que puedan existir en nuestra sociedad.

    La segunda lectura dice: "El amor de Cristo nos impulsa". Padres (incluidos los sacerdotes que son padres espirituales), dejen que el amor de Cristo nos impulse a ser fuertes y amorosos en nuestra fe y por nuestras familias. ¡Ninguna tormenta es demasiado grande si la enfrentamos con Jesús! “El que está en Cristo es una nueva creación; las cosas viejas pasaron; he aquí que han llegado cosas nuevas ". No importa las luchas que usted y su familia hayan tenido en el pasado; ¡todas las cosas pueden ser renovadas con Jesús!
