Christmas Message Rev. Russell Brown, Pastor
How blessed we are to find ourselves once more anticipating the arrival of Christmas. I think of all the many Christmas celebrations I have enjoyed over the years, and how our lives and times have changed. There was a special wonder around Christmas as a child. The food, the decorated house and tree, the family rituals, and of course the mystery of wrapped gifts made for a time like no other at the end of each year. I suppose there are a lucky few who somehow manage to see Christmas with the eyes of a child throughout their lives. Most of us, however, lost our unreserved capacity for wonder along with our faith in Santa Claus; a sort of child’s fall from grace. There is a part of us that wishes to believe the unbelievable. The good news, sung out the world by angels that first Christmas day is that we may once again have faith in something that seems too good to be true. The words we use to try and express the mystery of the Christ child are never adequate. Surely it is easier for a white whiskered old man to circle the globe in one night, than for the God of Creation to be born a child in Bethlehem. But that is what our faith reveals to us to the extent we are able to accept it. We reclaim our youthful grace when we reclaim our ability to once again believe the unbelievable and accept such a gift. When I prepare to celebrate the Eucharist at the altar, I pour a few drops of water into the chalice of wine and say words that few ever hear. I say, “through the mystery of this water and wine, may we come to share the divinity of Christ, who humbled himself to share in our humanity.” That is the original Christmas gift. That Christ should choose to enter our lives as an innocent child is remarkable. That through this event he would call us to join in his own sacred life is the great mystery of Christmas, the Feast of the Incarnation. I invite you to pray and reflect on meaning of this present. By the light of Christ, gaze upon it expectantly, unwrap it slowly, enjoy it eternally, and don’t forget to give thanks to the giver for this blessing. As the child of Mary would one day say, rejoicing in the Holy Spirit, “I give thanks to you O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because what you have hidden from the clever and the learned, you have revealed to the merest children.” The mystery of Christmas does need to be seen with the eyes of a child before it can be accepted with the mature heart of

Healing Grief Workshop:
Begins Thursday, January 18, 2018 We will meet in the Youth Center 10 am to 12 noon 8 week series • Workshop is free but requires pre-registration. To register, call Mona L Taylor, 770 713-1629. The loss of a loved one through death is one of the most difficult things we experience in our journey through this life. There is nothing in our society that prepares one for the intensity of emotion and conflicting feelings experienced in grief. In this 8 week series we will learn to understand and manage the evolving grief process. Topics include: Understanding Grief, Accepting Feelings, Role Changes, Stress and Coping, Anniversaries and Holidays. Whether you are several months, or several years past the loss, please join us.
Vigil for World Peace at Local Monastery
New Year’s Eve December 31st, the monks at the Monastery of the Risen Christ will be having a vigil silent prayer & meditation with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament from 6:30 pm till 12 Mid-Night for World Peace. Come join with us to welcome 2018 in with prayer & meditation honoring Our Lord Christ Jesus! Refreshments will be provided. Monastery of the Risen Christ Chapel, 2308 O’Connor Way, SLO
5th Sunday Rosary
Next week after all Masses our local Knights of Columbus will lead the 5th Sunday Rosary again. The rosary will be conducted immediately following all the Sunday masses on New Year’s Eve, Dec 31st. If the weather is good we’ll do it outside at the statue of our Lady in the courtyard, otherwise in Our Lady’s chapel – both are across the courtyard from the side entrance of the church. On the 5th Sunday, we celebrate once again the great Solemnity of the Patroness of our United States, chosen in the mystery of her Immaculate Conception as guide to the way of grace and salvation. Participants should bring a rosary to use during the service; But we will also have prayer booklets and a limited supply of finger rosaries. The booklet includes a section on how to use the finger rosary anytime, and the prayers necessary for praying the rosary. For further information contact Rich Hendrickson at 787-0707
Care for Creation
We haven’t received our winter rains yet (as of this printing) but please keep our need for rain in your prayers. Not only do we need them to help with the wildfires, but also to nourish the crops in the field and sustain our water supply. Join your prayers in solidarity with the prayers of all those suffering from drought around the world. And perhaps make one less trip in your car!
Parish Offices will be closed December 23, 2017 January 1, 2018. We will reopen on Tuesday, January 2nd.
EFLECTION OF THE WEEK
December 24, 2017 • 4th Sunday of Advent Gospel Summary The angel Gabriel announces to Mary that she will conceive and bear a son, and name him Jesus. Mary does not understand how this can be, and the angel explains that the Holy Spirit will come upon her and “the power of the Most High will overshadow [her].” Gabriel then tells Mary that Elizabeth, too, will bear a son, emphasizing that “nothing will be impossible for God.” Mary replies, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.” Reflection for Parents As Christmas nears, what seems most impossible to you? Does it seem impossible that all the gifts will be bought, wrapped, and under the tree in time for Christmas morning? Does it seem impossible that you will have time to complete the preparations for and cooking of the Christmas meal? Does it seem impossible that family members will get along? Take time to talk to the Lord about these seeming impossibilities. Quietly repeat the promise of the angel Gabriel, “nothing will be impossible for God.”

Bringing the Gospel Into Your Family Continue the above reflection with your family members. Light the four candles of the Advent wreath and invite each family member to name something that seems impossible—perhaps a difficult task or deadline—that he or she must take care of by Christmas Day. Then pray together the words of the angel Gabriel; “Nothing will be impossible for God.” Support and encourage each other in the days between today and Christmas Day. Adults: When have you followed the example of Mary and said, “Let it be done to me as you say? Children: Is there something hard you need to do this week? What might make it easier?

In their search for meaning and purpose, young people have a great openness to prayer, especially throughout the Christmas season. The teachers, parents, and staff of Old Mission School know that we have the grace-filled privilege and opportunity to weave prayer throughout the daily lives of our children. We do this in many ways. Our aim is to awaken and empower students to live lives that are attentive and responsive to God, who is always present for them. We ask that you will continue to pray with us for the continued faith development of our children, so that none will miss the voice of God, which beckons with the dawning of each day. Old Mission Catholic School is currently accepting applications for preschool through eighth grade. Our entire school community is dedicated to the development of socially responsible citizens for the twenty-first century who are spiritually empowered, academically enriched, and morally accountable for their actions.

Feliz cuarto domingo de Adviento. Este año es muy corto ya que también éste domingo por la noche es Nochebuena. ¡Les deseamos una feliz celebración!

LA PROMESA DE DIOS El largo pasaje de Samuel expone de manera maravillosa la promesa de Dios a la dinastía de David: que su trono siempre estaría ocupado gloriosamente por sus descendientes. Oculta en el misterio de la profecía está la promesa del Salvador, el Mesías, Hijo de Dios e Hijo de David. El profeta Natán, quien habla en nombre de Dios, desbarata poéticamente el plan de David de construir una casa para Dios y anuncia que el plan de Dios es construir una “casa”, una dinastía, para David. De esta dinastía de David provendrá el Mesías, el Cristo, quien no llegará con el esplendor majestuoso con el que reinó David, sino que vendrá como un hombre humilde, que gobernará por los siglos de los siglos. Cuando Dios hace un regalo; lo que recibimos es asombroso: es muy distinto a lo que podríamos haber imaginado. Copyright (c) J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

No hemos recibido nuestras lluvias de invierno (al momento de esta impresión), asi que por favor, tenga presente esta necesidad de lluvias en sus oraciones. No sólo es necesario para ayudar con los incendios forestales, sino también para los cultivos en el campo y para mantener nuestro suministro de agua. Unan sus oraciones en solidaridad con las de todos aquellos que sufren de incendios y sequías alrededor del mundo. ¡Y tal vez también puedan dejar de hacer menos viajes en su coche!
