As I took down the ornaments and put away our decorations in the friary, I felt the sadness I do every year as we move away from Christmas magic to “ordinary time.” It seems easier to find Jesus when we are reminded by our Christmas creche, wonderful music and that special spirit in the air. Yet, the Incarnation goes on every day—every ordinary day. We sometimes have to look hard for Jesus in our daily lives, and even John the Baptist admits “I did not know him.” I ask the Spirit to help us find the Lord in our midst here in our beautiful valley, and especially in the people and circumstances of our everyday lives!

Don’t forget that Tuesday, January 21 is the Feast of our Patroness, Santa Inés (St. Agnes). Please join us for Mass that day, either at our 8:00 a.m. Mass or our special feast day Mass at 7:00 p.m. God bless and keep you!    Fr. Bobby 

"Jesus keeps knocking on our doors, the doors of our lives. He doesn't do this by magic, with special effects, with flashing lights and fireworks. Jesus keeps knocking on our door in the faces of our brothers and sisters, in the faces of our neighbors, in the faces of those at our side."   Pope Francis

“It is not enough to say we are Christians. We must live the faith not only with words but with our actions”  - Pope Francis

Pope Francis: Remember the spiritual as much as the corporal works of mercy

@ArchbishopGomez: Friends, we need to practice the corporal and spiritual works of mercy - seeking contact with our Lord through serving others.
