Sharing the Good News

SPEAK, LORD, WE ARE LISTENING In today's first reading God keeps calling out in the night to a sleeping boy. Neither the boy, Samuel, nor his teacher, Eli, understands who is calling. But God's persistence convinces them. Samuel is then ready--not ready yet to do anything, but ready to listen. "Speak, for your servant is listening" (1 Samuel 3:10). In the Gospel Jesus is out teaching. Various people notice him and begin to gather around. They soon become disciples and, like the young Samuel, are ready--not ready yet to do anything, but ready to listen. "Speak," they say, "we are listening." God's voice is always with us, awake or asleep. It swirls around us like fog on a waterfront, enveloping us, gently urging us to wake up, to listen. Awareness of the voice comes first; then willingness to listen; then, in time, the decision to act, to live according to God's word. Let's ask today for the ability to keep our ears open so we don't miss God's voice. QUESTIONS OF THE WEEK Adults: In what ways do I live out Jesus’ teaching, as I share my life with others. Children: What would I say to Jesus if I spent an afternoon with him?

Compartiendo La Buena Noticia

HABLA, SEÑOR, ESTAMOS ESCUCHANDO En la primera lectura de hoy Dios llama repetidas veces en la noche a un niño dormido. Ni el niño, Samuel, ni su maestro, Elí, entienden quién está llamando. Pero la persistencia de Dios los convence. Samuel ya está listo; no para hacer algo todavía, pero dispuestos a escuchar. "Habla Señor, tu siervo te escucha" (1 Samuel 3:10). En el Evangelio, Jesús está afuera enseñando. Varias personas lo ven y comienzan a reunirse alrededor. Pronto

Send, O Lord, holy apostles into your Church.

se convierten en discípulos y, al igual que el joven Samuel, están listos, no para hacer algo todavía, pero dispuestos a escuchar. "Habla", dicen, "te escuchamos". La voz de Dios está siempre con nosotros, ya sea que estemos despiertos o dormidos. Se arremolina a nuestro alrededor como la niebla en una costa envolviéndonos, suavemente nos urge a despertar, a escuchar. Estar conscientes de la voz es lo primero; luego la voluntad de escuchar; y más luego, con el tiempo, la decisión de actuar, de vivir según la Palabra de Dios. Vamos a pedir hoy por la capacidad de mantener los oídos abiertos para que no se pierda la voz de Dios. PREGUNTAS PARA LA SEMANA Adultos: ¿Cómo vivo las enseñanzas de Jesús, al compartir mi vida con otros? Niños: ¿Qué le diría a Jesús si pasara una tarde con él?

potential. He does not offer explanations of who he is, but takes people to his home and lets them see for themselves. LIVING STEWARDSHIP NOW Jesus sees you, accepts you, and welcomes you for who you are. Show your gratitude in WORSHIP of God, who loves and saves you; SERVICE to others in the parish and the community; GIFTS to the church and to good causes of your choice. LO VERÁS En el Evangelio de hoy Juan el Bautista ve a Jesús venir hacia él y dice que Jesús es el Cordero de Dios prometido. Andrés y otro hombre siguen a Jesús quien les pregunta lo que andan buscando. La respuesta de ellos es extraña, pues dicen que quieren saber dónde él vive. Jesús responde: "Vengan a ver". Al día siguiente Andrés lleva a su hermano Simón para que conozca al Mesías, el ungido. Jesús mira a fondo a Simón y por lo que puede percibir, le da el nuevo nombre de Pedro ("la roca"). Los dos encuentros son ordinarios y produjeron un cambio de vida. Jesús camina hacia Juan, y después le ofrece a Andrés y su amigo hospitalidad y compañía. Jesús conoce a Pedro, le echa una mirada, hace una valoración de su carácter y lo acepta como amigo. Esa sencillez demuestra su buena disposición para recibir a las personas "tal y como son", pero también les hace ver sus propias capacidades. No ofrece explicaciones prolongadas acerca de quién es él, sino que lleva a las personas a su casa y les permite ver por sí mismas. LA CO-RESPONSABILIDAD VIVIDA AHORA Jesús te ve, te acepta y te recibe tal como eres. Demuestra tu gratitud ALABANDO a Dios que te ama y te salva; SIRVIENDO a otras personas en tu parroquia y comunidad; OFRECIENDO algo de tu dinero a la Iglesia y a las causas buenas de tu predilección. THE HOLY FATHER’S JANUARY 2012 INTENTIONS General Intention: That the victims of natural disasters may receive the spiritual and material comfort they need to rebuild their lives. Missionary Intention: That the dedication of Christians to peace may bear witness to the name of Christ before all men and women of good will.

YOU WILL SEE In today's Gospel, John the Baptist watches Jesus go by, and announces that Jesus is the promised Lamb of God. Andrew and another man follow Jesus, who asks what they are looking for. Their answer is strange: they want to know where he lives. Jesus replies, "Come, and you will see." The next day Andrew takes his brother, Simon, to meet the Messiah--the Anointed One. Jesus looks hard at Simon and, from what he perceives, renames him Peter ("the rock"). The two encounters are ordinary and yet life-changing. Jesus walks past John, and then offers Andrew and his friend hospitality and companionship. Jesus meets Peter, looks at him, assesses his character, and accepts him as a friend. The simplicity of Jesus' manner demonstrates his willingness to receive people "as they are" but also to see their

Treasures From Our Tradition
Every year, close to the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul on January 25, and before the feast of the Chair of St. Peter on February 22, the cause of Church unity is commended to Christians everywhere. Sadly, Protestants, Orthodox, and Catholics have settled to a status quo of separation. When baptized people become Catholic, we speak of them as being received into “full communion.” That means we already share a communion in faith in many ways, including the Word of God. Many Protestant denominations have received and revised the three-year cycle of readings first arranged by Catholics in the early 1970s. Therefore, many of your neighbors who are not Catholic are celebrating and reflecting on the same readings we are savoring on most Sundays of the year. This makes for a new spirit of cooperation among preachers of the gospel, and gives hope that the cause of reunion, desired by Christ, has great vitality at the table of God’s Word, and will one day lead to unity at the table of the Lord’s Body and Blood.

Tradiciones de Nuestra Fe
Según una vieja costumbre latina, no se les debe llamar por nombre a los niños mientras todavía están en el vientre de su madre. Mis padres siempre me hablaban por nombre durante el embarazo de mi mamá. Esto por supuesto molestaba a mi abuelita quien decía que si me iban a hablar por nombre sería mejor llamarme Tiburcio. La gran sorpresa de mis padres fue que nací el día de san Tiburcio. Gracias a Dios mis padres no eran tradicionalitas, sino tuviera que pasar mi vida con ese nombre. Muchos latinoamericanos todavía siguen la tradición del onomástico; de dar a su hijo o hija el nombre del santo o de la santa en cuyo día nació. Esta costumbre se hace con doble intención: 1) para implorar la protección del santo sobre el recién nacido y 2) para que el niño o la niña tenga un buen ejemplo como modelo para su vida. Esta última razón implica tener que conocer e imitar al santo o a la santa. Si tu hijo nace el 16 de enero puedes nombrarlo: Fulgencio, Acursio, Adiuto, Frisio y Tolomeo. O si es niña, Priscila o el femenino de los previos. —Fray Gilberto Cavazos

Grant us open and generous hearts to see the needs of others and to respond with compassion.

It is in Christ and through Christ that we offer ourselves to you now and forever. Amen.

2012 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
On January 18 - 25, 2012, Christian Churches throughout the world will join in prayer asking the Lord to restore oneness to the Christian community. This oneness was ruptured at various times during the history of the Church, most notably in 1054 when Catholics and Eastern Orthodox Christians severed the bonds of unity and then again in 1517 when protests over perceived ecclesiastical abuses led to the fragmentation of western Christendom. Thankfully, most of the acrimony of the past is behind us, and Christians are more and more yearning for doctrinal unity and pastoral charity among all believers. To this end, the Graymoor Institute inaugurated the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity which is entering its 104th year in 2012. The Parish Community of St. Mary’s And St. Katherine’s welcomes and encourages dialogue with fellow believers in Jesus Christ and is ready and willing to share in common prayer and worship insofar as our confessions allow. The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is observed by millions of Christians throughout the world. It is sponsored by the Vatican and the World Council of Churches which includes Orthodox and Protestant Churches. This year the sponsors chose the churches in Poland to plan the 2012 service. Representatives of the Polish churches chose the theme “We will all be changed by the Victory of our Lord Jesus Christ” (cf. 1 Cor 15:51-58.) – a theme of resurrection and hope. For more information please visit the Graymoor Ecumenical & Interreligious Institute website www.geii.org. Everyone is welcome to attend a service and encouraged to personally pray the Lord’s Prayer once each day during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Prayer Almighty and eternal God, by travelling the royal road of service your Son leads us from the arrogance of our dis-

obedience to humility of heart. Unite us to one another by your Holy Spirit, so that through service to our sisters and brothers, Your true countenance may be revealed; You, who live and reign forever and ever. Amen. Questions for reflection 1. What opportunities for service are most threatened by pride and arrogance? 2. What should be done to ensure that all Christian ministries are better experienced as service? 3. In our community, what can Christians of different traditions do better together than in isolation to reveal the Servant Christ?
