Sacrament of Marriage A couple wishing to be married in Saint Patrick Church or Saint James Church must contact the parish six months prior to the intended wedding date. A CHRISTMAS REPRISE The Church’s celebration three weeks ago of the Baptism of the Lord signaled the “official” end of the Christmas season. Today’s feast of the Presentation of the Lord seems to extend the Incarnation celebration a bit longer. In fact, some have called this feast a “second Epiphany.” The first reading recalls the anticipation of Advent, as Malachi writes, “Lo, I am sending my messenger to prepare the way before me.” The reading from Hebrews reminds us of the Incarnation, proclaiming that Jesus had a “share” in our own “blood and flesh.” The Gospel finds the infant Jesus on his first visit to Jerusalem and his human parents once again surprised and in awe over the events surround his birth. In the simplicity of the manger, in the grandeur of the temple, in the domesticity of Nazareth, Jesus comes. May we come to know him and so be filled with “wisdom” and the “favor of God.” —Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

Pero el Evangelio nos muestra una manera mejor. En el Evangelio de hoy, los cuatro adultos anhelan pro-fundamente al Mesías y “la consolación de Israel” que él traerá. La tentación humana podría obsesio-narse con la promesa de una paz y prosperidad futura, dejando solo la ansiedad y el resentimiento para un presente sufriente. Pero María, José, Simeón y Ana dejan la salvación del mundo a Dios; de su parte, ellos se enfocan en Jesús. Cada uno de ellos están ocupados con sus ocupaciones del día en sus trabajos que eligieron hacer. María y José están preocupados en como proveer a su familia, mientras que Simeón y Ana dedican sus vidas a orar en el Templo. Encuentran suficiente paz al cumplir sus obligaciones en sus estados de vida, manteniendo una vida de oración viva para estar atentos a las acciones de Dios en el mundo. En el Evangelio, sus prioridades están literal y espiritualmente en Jesús. Ellos modelan para nosotros cómo ser feliz y santo; haciendo sus debe-res diarios pacíficamente, siempre listos para reconocer a Jesús mientras él se revela a sí mismo.Copyright © J. S.

KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS “There is no saint without a past and no sinner without a future.” St Augustine. Saint Augustine is usually insightful. This quote is totally understandable. It also helps me put things in perspective. We all fail and fall short, but we have a future. The point for me is that we should keep trying and keep striving to be a better Christian. Our past is the past and can not be anything else. Our future can be different if we learn from the past. Keith Flaherty, Grand Knight, Monsignor Hayes Council Upcoming event sponsored by the Knights of Columbus: February 15th, Saturday: Tri-Tip Dinner - Support the Walk for Life!!! This dinner helps offset the bus expense for the Walk for Life Walk in San Francisco. See a Knight after all the weekend Masses for tickets. ¡Apoye la caminata por la vida! La cena anual de Tri-Tip que los Caballeros de Colón preparan, llegará el 15 de febrero. Esta cena ayuda pagar por el costo del camión a la caminata por la vida en San Francisco.
