PRAYING PACEM IN TERRIS As we know from experience, men frequently differ widely in knowledge, virtue, intelligence and wealth, but that is no valid argument in favor of a system whereby those who are in a position of superiority impose their will arbitrarily on others. On the contrary, such men have a greater share in the common responsibility to help others to reach perfection by their mutual efforts. So, too, on the international level: some nations may have attained to a superior degree of scientific, cultural and economic development. But that does not entitle them to exert unjust political domination over other nations. It means that they have to make a greater contribution to the common cause of social progress.

Each places a straw in the manger for each good thing that he or she has done. As a family, make an Advent wreath. The Advent wreath is a circle of evergreens with four candles. Use a Styrofoam ring for the base. Hollow out four holes to fit the candles. Four candles identify the weeks of Advent: three are purple, for the long wait; one pink, for the third Sunday to express our joy that we are halfway through our Advent waiting.

7 FORMACION EN LA FE FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT Sunday Readings and Backgrounds Reading I : Isaiah 63:16b-17, 19b; 64:2-7 -We have not seen any God like you! The first reading was written after the Israelites returned from exile and resettled in Judah. The people were discouraged by widespread poverty, dissension among their leaders, and the overwhelming task of rebuilding the ruins. The prophet challenges the Israelites to persevere at their task. Reading II : 1 Corinthians 1:3-9 - He will strengthen you to the end. Paul s letter is addressed to the Corinthians, a people who have embraced Christianity with ardor. They compete with one another for the most evident signs of the spirit. Paul reminds the people that the most essential gift for their salvation is perseverance in faith. Gospel : Mark 13: Be constantly on guard! The author of Mark s Gospel wrote for a community greatly concerned with events of the end of time. Today s passage repeats two ideas. First, no one but God knows the time of the end. Second, the proper response of the faithful disciple is to watch and be ready at all times. Only those who persevere in watching will be saved. PRIMER DOMINGO DE ADVIENTO Lecturas Dominicales e información adicional acerca de las lecturas Primera Lectura : Isaías 63, 16b-17, 19b; 64, Ni ojo alguno ha visto que un Dios, fuera de ti, hiciera tanto en favor de quienes confían en él. La primera lectura se escribió después de que los israelitas regresaron del exilio y se restablecieron en Judá. El pueblo se sentía desanimado ante la pobreza generalizada, el desacuerdo que existía entre sus líderes y la abrumadora tarea de reconstruir las ruinas. El profeta desafía a los israelitas a perseverar en su tarea. Segunda Lectura : 1 Corintios 1, Él los mantendrá firmes hasta el fin. La carta de San Pablo está dirigida a los corintios, un pueblo que había abrazado el cristianismo con fervor. Ellos compiten entre sí por quién tiene las señales más evidentes del Espíritu. Pablo les recuerda que el don más esencial para su salvación es la perseverancia en la fe. Evangelio : Marcos 13, Estén preparados y vigilando! El autor del Evangelio según San Marcos escribió para una comunidad que estaba muy preocupada por los acontecimientos del final de los tiempos. El pasaje de hoy repite dos ideas. Primero, que nadie excepto Dios conoce el momento del final. Segundo, que la respuesta adecuada del discípulo fiel es estar vigilante y preparado en todo momento. Sólo los que perseveren en estar vigilantes serán salvados.

En familia, escriban lo que harán cada día para estar listos para la venida de Jesús. Hagan un pesebre o un establo vacío para el niño Jesús. Todas las noches durante el Adviento, cada miembro de la familia cuenta acerca de una obra amable que ha hecho ese día para prepararse para la venida de Jesús. Cada uno pone una paja sobre el pesebre por cada buena obra que haya hecho. En familia, preparen una Corona de Adviento. La Corona de Adviento es un círculo de ramas de hoja perenne con cuatro velas. Usen un aro de polietileno para la base. Hagan cuatro agujeros para colocar las velas. Las cuatro velas representan las semanas del adviento: tres de ellas son violeta, por la larga espera; una es rosa, por el tercer domingo, para expresar nuestro gozo por estar a la mitad de nuestra espera del Adviento. Comente la siguiente pregunta con su familia: Qué se necesita para prepararse para el encuentro con Cristo en Navidad? IHMATLANTA.ORG 7

8 ADVENT RESTORES THE HORIZON OF HOPE YOUTH MINISTRY Today, on the First Sunday of Advent, we begin a new liturgical year; that is, a new journey of the People of God with Jesus Christ, our Shepherd, who guides us through history toward the fulfillment of the Kingdom of God. Therefore, this day has a special charm, it makes us experience deeply the meaning of history. We rediscover the beauty of all being on a journey: the Church, with her vocation and mission, and all humanity, peoples, civilizations, cultures, all on a journey across the paths of time. But where are we journeying? Is there a common goal? And what is this goal? The Lord responds to us through the prophet Isaiah, saying: It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be raised above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it, and many peoples shall come, and say: Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths (2:2-3). This journey never comes to an end. Just as in each of our lives we always need to begin again, to get up again, to rediscover the meaning of the goal of our lives, so also for the great human family it is always necessary to rediscover the common horizon toward which we are journeying. The horizon of hope! This is the horizon that makes for a good journey. The season of Advent, which we begin again today, restores this horizon of hope, a hope which does not disappoint for it is founded on God s Word. A hope which does not disappoint, simply because the Lord never disappoints! He is faithful! He does not disappoint! Let us think about and feel this beauty. The model of this spiritual disposition, of this way of being and journeying in life, is the Virgin Mary. A simple girl from the country who carries within her heart the fullness of hope in God! In her womb, God s hope took flesh, it became man, it became history: Jesus Christ. Her Magnificat is the canticle of the People of God on a journey, and of all men and women who hope in God and in the power of his mercy. Let us allow ourselves to be guided by her, she who is mother, a mamma and knows how to guide us. Let us allow ourselves to be guided by her during this season of active waiting and watchfulness. Pope Francis: Angelus (2013) When? Friday, January 30 What time? 6:15 p.m. Where? Christ the King How much? It s totally free!! To sign up, please call or Kathy Guerrero by December 31, 2014 Chaperones Needed! If you would like to help chaperone this event, please contact Kathy Guerrero for more information. What to expect: It s just harmless entertainment, She s willing to do it, It s not like I m supporting the industry. These and many other myths prevent many of us from seeing pornography for what it truly is: a diabolical counterfeit for love. In this entertaining presentation, Matt exposes what he believes are 10 of the most common myths about porn. Then, Matt untwists the lies, shines light on the darkness, and offers hope to those who are ready reject the counterfeit and embrace the truth. He backs up his arguments with startling statistics, real life stories, and the rock solid wisdom of the Church s teachings on human sexuality. FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT 8
