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.

 Message From Fr. Bob Hogan, BBD

SOLEMNITY OF OUR LORD, JESUS CHRIST, THE KING   (Last Sunday of the Church Year). 

                In the Old Testament the coming messiah is often described as a Shepherd King who will care deeply about his people:  rescuing them; feeding them; giving them rest; seeking the lost and strayed; binding the injured; healing the sick; and finally being the judge deciding which sheep are worthy, and which are not worthy, of his kingdom.  The greatest king of Israel was David who had been a shepherd.

                Jesus often describes himself as a Good Shepherd and the Shepherd King.  The gospel describes the final judgement of all humankind where Jesus is the final judge and king.  He separates the people like sheep and goats.  Those who inherit the kingdom of Jesus are those who, just like Jesus, acted like good shepherds for other people who were in need.  Jesus says that those who cared for (fed, clothed, welcomed, cared for the ill, visited those in prison) the least of the brothers and sisters of Jesus, did it for him  He describes the “least of his brothers and sisters” as the hungry, the thirsty, strangers, the naked, the ill, and those in prison.  Jesus, who became a human, unites himself fully with the whole human race, especially people who are facing difficult challenges in life.  May we end this Church Year by trusting in Jesus, our Shepherd King, and by asking that we can have Jesus’ heart of a shepherd in caring for people who are in need.

Mensaje del Padre Bob Hogan

SOLEMNIDAD DE NUESTRO SEÑOR JESUCRISTO, REY DEL UNIVERSO (Último Domingo del Año Eclesiástico).

                En el Antiguo Testamento, el mesías venidero se describe a menudo como un Rey Pastor que se preocupará profundamente por su pueblo: rescatarlo; alimentarlos; dándoles descanso; buscando a los perdidos y descarriados; atar a los heridos; curar a los enfermos; y finalmente ser el juez que decide qué ovejas son dignas y cuáles no son dignas de su reino. El rey más grande de Israel fue David, que había sido pastor.

                Jesús a menudo se describe a sí mismo como un Buen Pastor y el Rey Pastor. El evangelio describe el juicio final de toda la humanidad donde Jesús es el juez y rey ​​final. Separa a la gente como ovejas y cabras. Quienes heredan el reino de Jesús son quienes, al igual que Jesús, actuaron como buenos pastores de otras personas necesitadas. Jesús dice que los que cuidaron (alimentaron, vistieron, acogieron, cuidaron a los enfermos, visitaron a los encarcelados) al más pequeño de los hermanos y hermanas de Jesús, lo hicieron por él. Él describe al “más pequeño de sus hermanos y hermanas” como los hambrientos, los sedientos, los extraños, los desnudos, los enfermos y los encarcelados. Jesús, que se hizo humano, se une plenamente a toda la raza humana, especialmente a las personas que enfrentan desafíos difíciles en la vida. Que podamos terminar este Año de la Iglesia confiando en Jesús, nuestro Rey Pastor, y pidiendo que podamos tener el corazón de Jesús de pastor en el cuidado de las personas necesitadas.
