Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. It is heartbreaking and frightening to hear about the effects of natural disasters, such as the wildfires that afflict our state (and many other lands). It is even harder to hear about deadly incidents such as the shooting in Thousand Oaks, disasters that are inflicted by human anger and hatred. Bishop Robert Barron writes: “In times like these we often feel powerless, which too often leads to anger. The antidote is both prayer and charity.” We have to believe in the power of our actions for the good, our attempts to change our society, or simply to reach one hurting heart. Jesus said, “As often as you did it to one of these least ones, you did it for me.” May He help us to believe in these words, and the power of His Love which shall not pass away.

May the Lord give you all the blessings you need and a grace-filled Thanksgiving Day. Please join us for mass this Thursday, for the Eucharist is the greatest act of Thanksgiving we can ever make. May the Lord give you peace!     Fr. Bobby 

The Hispanic Youth Ministry would like to thank all those who helped us to go to CDJ 2018. With your help, 20 teens and 7 chaperones were able to attend this year. We ask you to keep us in your prayers to be FEARLESS followers of Christ.

"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

Participating in the good works of Together in Mission is one way that every Catholic in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles can show their love for their neighbor. Our theme for this 25th anniversary year of Together in Mission is “Let us Love.” The love that Jesus calls us to is more than words and more than feelings. Christian love is a call to action. Jesus calls us to open our hearts and extend a helping hand to those who are most vulnerable and most in need. Thank for your generous support of the Together in Mission campaign. May our Blessed Mother watch over you in her tender love and may our gracious God grant you peace and joy and love. Most Reverend José H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles

“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.

Loving God, You hear the cry of each of your children, and especially those who are poor and suffering. We pray that we too might hear the cries of people in need: The family crying out for food … The migrant child crying out for his mother … The youth crying out for education … The farmer crying out for rains for his harvest …. The trafficked and abused, crying out for freedom … All of who are poor and vulnerable, crying out for help … Lord, open our hearts that we may hear the cries of the poor as you do and respond as your hands and feet on earth. In your name we pray, Amen
