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 Fr. Bob

Catechetical Sunday:  Today we pray for: 1) Our catechists (religion teachers); 2) The children who are learning to know and love Jesus; and 3) The parents of the children.  May all of us support one another in sharing our faith with our children, and be good examples for the children, so that our children may grow strong in their faith and love for Jesus.

     Our readings teach us that the greatest persons are those who lay down their lives for others; seeking to give, not just to get; and who serve the littlest and the least (especially the children).  Jesus predicts, following the prophecies from Isaiah, that he will be reviled (mocked and put down), tortured, and put to death, but then will rise from the dead.  The greatest people in God’s eyes are like Jesus.  They are not controlled by their passions of anger, jealousy, greed, and revenge; but instead show their love by their humility, sincerity, inner peace, gentleness, mercy, patience, and desire to serve others.  They are not great because they are famous or powerful, but because they care for the children, and for people who tend to be ignored.

     Today’s gospel says that Jesus took a child, putting his arms around him, and said that “whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me.”  Let us be aware to encourage and support our children and parents here at St. Henry Church.  Let us truly share our faith with the children; bringing them with us to Church every week; teaching them to pray; and sharing with them what Jesus means in our lives.  Let us be great in Jesus’ eyes by showing great care for our children.

Mensaje del Pastor

Domingo Catequético: Hoy oramos por: 1) Nuestros catequistas (profesores de religión); 2) Los niños que están aprendiendo a conocer y amar a Jesús; y 3) Los padres de los niños.  Que todos nos apoyemos unos a otros para compartir nuestra fe con nuestros hijos, y seamos buenos ejemplos para los niños, para que nuestros hijos puedan crecer fuertes en su fe y amor por Jesús.

Nuestras lecturas nos enseñan que las personas más grandes son aquellas que den sus vidas por los demás; buscando dar, no sólo obtener; y que sirven a los más pequeños y a los menos (especialmente a los niños).  Jesús predice, siguiendo las profecías de Isaías, que será injuriado (burlado y menospreciado), torturado y ejecutado, pero luego resucitará de entre los muertos.  Las personas más grandes a los ojos de Dios son como Jesús.  No están controlados por sus pasiones de ira, celos, codicia y venganza; sino que muestran su amor por su humildad, sinceridad, paz interior, gentileza, misericordia, paciencia y deseo de servir a los demás.  No son grandes porque sean famosos o poderosos, sino porque se preocupan por los niños y por las personas que tienden a ser ignoradas.

El evangelio de hoy dice que Jesús tomó a un niño, poniendo sus brazos alrededor de él, y dijo que "quien recibe un niño como este en mi nombre, me recibe a mí".  Seamos conscientes de alentar y apoyar a nuestros hijos y padres aquí en la Iglesia St. Henry.  Compartamos verdaderamente nuestra fe con los niños; traerlos con nosotros a la Iglesia cada semana; enseñarles a orar; y compartir con ellos lo que Jesús quiere decir en nuestras vidas.  Seamos grandes a los ojos de Jesús mostrando gran cuidado por nuestros hijos.
