Pastor Reflection

Merry Christmas

Dear Parishioners,

A very Blessed Christmas and New Year to all of you!

One of my favorite scriptures for Christmas is the reading that is always read at the “Mass During the Night” which we know as the “Midnight Mass” because it is often celebrated at Midnight. Isaiah starts off saying, “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom a light has shone.” That light is Jesus Christ! The reason we celebrate the Feast of Christmas is because our belief in the incarnation of Jesus who gives meaning to all of life. The powerful sign of his presence is “the baby in need of help and in poverty. Exactly the same sign has been given to us…God’s sign is simplicity…God’s sign is that he makes himself small for us.” (Pope Benedict XVI). As St Paul tells us Jesus became poor that we might become rich and he was born in a manger, a place where animals feed. The other day I was speaking to someone and they spoke about the manger and how it must have been a smelly place and uncomfortable. This person was struck by the thought of Jesus being born in the crudeness of a manger. Upon further reflection, he began to think about how he was often like that manger, dirty, and uncomfortable in short, he was one who knew the darkness. And yet into that darkness comes a great light, Jesus Christ, who changes everything. read more…

Celebraciones De Nuestra Virgen De Guadalupe

A todos aquellos que han tenido la oportunidad de visitar la Basílica de Guadalupe y pasar por el pasillo eléctrico debajo de la tilma de San Juan Diego, el obispo axiliar de Denver, monseñor Jorge Rodríguez les dijo:Les apuesto que han tenido la misma experiencia que me pasa a mí: cuando estás justo debajo de la imagen y la miras, te vienen ganas de llorar, te llena una emoción muy fuerte”.

Preguntémonos por qué nos pasa esto”, dijo el Prelado. “La emoción y las ganas de llorar son del tipo que uno siente por su propia mamá. Son sentimientos muy fuertes que uno no tiene por cualquier persona”.

El obispo Rodríguez presidió la Misa en honor a “La Lupita” en las vísperas de su fiesta, el pasado 11 de diciembre a las 11 p.m. en la parroquia – santuario Our Lady of Guadalupe, en el que centenares de fieles llegaron para rendirle un homenaje a la patrona de las Américas y esperar a que dieran las 12 a.m para recibir el día de esta advocación mariana con mariachis y el tradicional canto de Las Mañanitas.
