From The Pastor’s Desk
Dear Parish Family, Peace and all good! This week we celebrate the Ascension of the Lord, an important threshold event marking the transition from the Resurrection of the Lord to the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Each year, as we celebrate this feast, I am reminded of a wonderful mural painted on the rear wall at Ascension Parish in Portland, Oregon, where I worked during my first years of priesthood. The artist, Jose Solis, a member of the parish, had placed the figure of Jesus ascending into heaven right above the doors of the sanctuary. The figure of the Lord is surrounded by His ‘disciples’, each of whom bears the “face” of an actual member of the parish! Parishioners leaving church every Sunday are definitely aware of the Ascension of the Lord—and their own ‘role’ in it. Mr. Solis understood the meaning and the Ascension of the Lord clearly and depicted it in a strikingly poignant manner. Yes, the Lord is risen and has returned to the Father. And, yes, we ourselves, as contemporary disciples of the Lord, play an important part in the event and in its consequences, but not just as bystanders. Both of the major readings from the lectionary this weekend reinforce the responsibilities of our dual citizenship: both in ‘heaven’ with the Lord and right here ‘down to earth’ as His disciples in our world. “Men of Galilee, why are you standing there looking at the sky?” (Acts 1: 11). The first reading, from the Acts of the Apostles, opens with this great one-liner. These first disciples of Jesus are left gaping, open-mouthed as they witness the return of Jesus to the Father. Then, they are shaken out of their apparent stupor: “Okay, Everyone, it’s time to get back to work!” The day’s reading from the Gospel of Matthew (28:19-20) both refines and reinforces this message that we need to put into practice the faith that we have received in and through the Risen Lord. In His concluding words to His followers Jesus himself tells them (and us): “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” So, here we are, living ourselves at the threshold, in the

tension between our deepest and highest spiritual hopes and aspirations-- and the apparently mundane ‘stuff’ of everyday life. Or, as one author put it, “After the ecstasy, comes the laundry.” But, our day jobs are only apparently mundane. All of our attitudes, decisions, and actions have the potential to carry new and heightened significance through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. More about that next week as we approach the Feast of Pentecost. Elsewhere in the Parish Thanks to all who participated in our Memorial Day liturgy, offered in memory and honor of all the men and women in our military services who have given their lives so that we may continue to enjoy the great gifts of peace and freedom in our country. Special thanks to our music ministers and choir members, under the direction of Lupe Rios, who helped the Mass to be so beautiful. Also, welcome back to David Coe, who has returned to us following knee replacement surgery. Following the Mass, we blessed and rededicated the Memorial Wall honoring the contributions of our deceased parishioners. The board has been restored and refurbished and placed on the north side of the parish chapel. Many thanks to the Las Madrinas Altar Society, headed by Margaret Hernandez, and to Javier Marquez and John Quiroz, members of Knights of Columbus Council 3162 for completing this important project. Sadly (for us), Javier, who is retiring from the Marine Corps, will be leaving the parish this month to reunite with his family in Texas. His young daughter promised me that they will be returning to Oceanside at least once a year from now on, “because, since we’re military, we get into Disneyland for free!” Last week, at its monthly meeting, the Comité Hispano selected its new leadership team: Coordinator Javier Mendez, sub-coordinator, Jose Maceda, and treasurer, Maria Diaz. Our thanks to the outgoing team for their tremendous hard work: Jorge Ponce (coordinator), Miguel Benitez (sub-coordinator), and Silvia Rivas (treasurer). God bless, Fr. Chuck

Parish News & Happenings Balancing the Budget
The Federal government does not operate on a balanced budget and neither does the State of California. This week we have all come to realize the pain that an organization like the Old Mission can go through in order to bring finances in line and let me say that thanks to you, we have not had to resort to such drastic measures. Thank you for that but allow me to submit something for your consideration. Our revenues have decreased over the years of the recession (not just plate collection but rentals as well). Next year Casa de Amparo will vacate the spaces around the McKeon Center reducing our rental income significantly (actually they are vacating some space next month). Can you help us begin to address this shortfall and balance our budget? If you are not currently giving to the operation of the parish through a weekly offering can you start with just a dollar or two? If you are currently giving 5 dollars can you increase your gift by two or three dollars each week and if you are a family giving at a higher level can you sacrifice to add just a few dollars to your weekly gift? We are a very large parish and it is through the participation of ALL of our families that we are successful. Speaking of families, stewardship of treasure is one of the lasting gifts that we as parents can pass on to our children. Even if it is just a dollar or a few, the fact that you place that money in an envelope and your children see it go into the basket is an everlasting lesson. If you do not use envelopes or contribute through EFT and would like to start please contact the office. We will be glad to help. Let’s kill two birds with one stone. We can teach our children a life-lesson and help the parish balance its budget. Allen Hartman, Business Manager

MEDIA/BOOK OF THE WEEK: The Spirituality of Work: Homemakers
by William Droel In the United States in the past four decades, the meaning of the term homemaker has changed and expanded. Today we consider all people who have any responsibility for creating and maintaining a household to be a homemaker because they create a physical, emotional and spiritual haven for others. William L. Droel in his booklet The Spirituality of Work: Homemakers suggests a concept--the spirituality of work-around which the homemaker can begin to explore the meaning of this role. He suggests places, people and practices where that spirituality, that style of awareness, might uncover the meaning. He also suggests periodic meditation and reflection during the homemaker’s journey. And the final section offers ways for the homemaker to find assistance and support from others. This short book contains a wealth of information and practical suggestions to aid today’s homemaker in the quest for meaning from their essential work in society. As Clyde Evans says in the forward, “ If all work – all labor – is participation in God’s on going creation of this world, then homemaking is . . . the quintessential form of work. For if home and family and community is the most elemental, fundamental feature of the kind of world God wants, then the work associated with creating a home most fundamentally represents co-creating with God, who has so consistently and imaginatively tried to be a Home for us.”

Querida Familia Parroquial, ¡Paz y todo bien! Esta semana nosotros celebramos la Ascensión del Señor, un acontecimiento importante que marca la transición de la Resurrección del Señor a la llegada del Espíritu Santo en Pentecostés. Todos los años, al nosotros celebrar esta fiesta, se me recuerda un mural maravilloso pintado en la pared trasera de la Parroquia de la Ascensión en Portland, Oregon donde trabajé durante mis primeros años de sacerdocio. El artista, José Solís, un miembro de la parroquia, había colocado la figura de Jesús ascendiendo en la gloria exactamente sobre la puerta del santuario. ¡La figura del Señor está rodeada por Sus ‘discípulos’, cada uno de ellos, lleva la “faz” de un miembro actual de la parroquia! Los feligreses al salir de la iglesia cada domingo están conscientes, definitivamente, de la Ascensión del Señor—y de su papel en ella. El Señor Solís entiende claramente el significado y la Ascensión del Señor y lo mostró de manera llamativa y conmovedora. Si, el Señor ha resucitado y ha regresado al Padre y, si, nosotros, como discípulos contemporáneos del Señor, jugamos un papel importante en el evento en sus consecuencias, pero no solo como espectadores. Las dos lecturas principales del leccionario de este fin de semana enfatizan las responsabilidades de la ciudadanía doble: las dos en la “gloria” con el Señor y aquí “abajo en la tierra” como Sus discípulos en nuestro mundo. “Galileos, ¿qué hacen allí parados, mirando al cielo? (Hechos 1:11). La lectura primera de Hechos de los Apóstoles, se inicia con estas palabras únicas. Estos discípulos primeros de Jesús se quedan perplejos, con la boca abierta, al presenciar el regreso de Jesús al padre. Luego, ellos son movidos fuera de su asombro: “¡Muy bien, todos ustedes, ya es tiempo de regresar al trabajo!” La lectura del día de Mateo (28:19-20) refina y concreta este mensaje que nosotros debemos de poner en práctica, la fe que hemos recibido en y a través del Señor Resucitado. En Sus palabras finales a Sus seguidores, Jesús mismo les dice (y a nosotros): “Vayan pues, y enseñen a todas las naciones, bautizándolos en el nombre del Padre y del Hijo y del Espíritu Santo, y enseñándole a cumplir todo cuanto yo les he mandado.” Así pues, aquí estamos, viviendo en el umbral, en la tensión entre nuestras esperanzas espirituales y aspiraciones elevadas y profundas y las “cosas” mundanas aparentemente de la vida diaria. O como un autor dijo, “Después del éxtasis, viene la lavandera.” Pero, nuestro día y nuestras acciones son solo mundanas aparentemente. Todas nuestras actitudes, nuestras decisiones y nuestras acciones tienen el potencial de llevar un significado nuevo y elevado a través del poder transformador del Espíritu Santo. La semana próxima tendremos más al acercarnos a la Fiesta de Pentecostés. Continúa en la siguiente columna...

Continuación… A través de la Parroquia Muchas gracias a todos los que participaron en la liturgia del Día de Memoria, ofrecido en honor y memoria de todos los hombres y mujeres en nuestro servicio militar quienes han ofrecido sus vidas para nosotros poder continuar disfrutando los regalos grandes de paz y de libertad en nuestra patria. Gracias especiales a nuestros ministros de música y a los miembros del coro, bajo la dirección de Lupe Rios, que ayudó a que la Misa fuera tan hermosa. También le damos la bienvenida a David Coe, que ha regresado a nosotros después de su cirugía. Al final de la Misa, nosotros bendijimos y re dedicamos el Mural Memorial que honra la contribución de nuestros feligreses fallecidos. El mural ha sido restaurado y restablecido y colocado al norte de nuestra capilla parroquial. Muchas gracias a Las Madrinas, dirigida por Margaret Hernández y a Javier Márquez y John Quiroz, miembros de Los Caballeros de Colón, del Concilio 3162 por completar este proyecto importante. Lamentablemente (para nosotros), Javier, quien se está retirando del “Marine Corps”, dejará esta parroquia este mes para unirse con sus familias en Texas. Su hija menor me prometió que ellos regresarán a Oceanside por lo menos, una vez al año, desde hoy, “¡porque, como él es militar, nosotros entramos gratis a Disneylandia!” La semana pasada en su reunión mensual, el Comité Hispano seleccionó un equipo nuevo: Coordinador, Javier Méndez, Sub-Coordinador, José Maceda, y Tesorera, María Díaz. Muchas gracias al equipo saliente por su trabajo tremendo: Jorge Ponce (coordinador), Miguel Benítez (subcoordinador), y Silvia Rivas (tesorera.) Dios los Bendiga, Padre Chuck

Equilibrando el Presupuesto
El gobierno Federal no opera con un presupuesto balanceado y tampoco el Estado de California. Esta semana todos nos hemos dado cuenta del dolor que una organización como la Misión Antigua puede pasar para traer las finanzas en línea y déjenme decirles que gracias a ustedes, nosotros no hemos tenido que recurrir a medidas tan drásticas. Gracias por eso y permítanme presentarles algo para su consideración. Nuestros ingresos han disminuído durante los años de recesión (no solo la colecta en efectivo pero también en otras áreas.) El próximo año, Casa de Amparo dejará vacante los espacios alrededor del Centro McKeon reduciendo nuestro ingreso significativamente (en realidad ellos comenzarán a desalojar algunos espacios el mes próximo.) ¿Pueden ustedes ayudarnos a dirigir este déficit y equilibrar nuestro presupuesto?

8 | PARROQUIA MISION SAN LUIS REY, Oceanside, California — 5 de junio del 2011

Continuación… Si tu no estás contribuyendo actualmente a la operación de la parroquia por medio de tu ofrenda semanal, ¿podrías comenzar con solo un dólar o dos? Si actualmente estás donando cinco dólares, podrías incrementar tu regalo por dos o tres dólares más cada semana y si tu eres una familia que está dando en un nivel más alto ¿podrías hacer el sacrificio y agregar un poco más en tu regalo semanal? Nosotros somos una parroquia grande y es por medio de la participación de TODAS las familias que nosotros podemos tener éxito. Hablando de familias, la corresponsabilidad es uno de los tesoros perdurables que nosotros como padres podemos dejarle a nuestros hijos. Aunque sea un dólar o más, el hecho de que coloques el dinero en el sobre y tus hijos vean que lo colocas en la canasta de la colecta es una lección de por vida. Si tu no usas los sobres o contribuyes por medio del Traslado Electrónico de Fondos y te gustaría comenzar, por favor, comunícate con la oficina parroquial, con gusto te ayudaremos. Nosotros podemos enseñarles a nuestros hijos una lección de-por-vida y a la vez ayudar a la parroquia a equilibrar el presupuesto. Allen Hartman, Director de Negocios
