A Message from our Pastor, Fr. Bobby

Christ Jesus, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness. How important to remember these words of St. Paul, how essential to our faith. The Word was made flesh; Jesus Christ entered into the messiness of being human, to walk with us through the chaos and once more help us to hear the words: “Let there be Light!” I cannot tell you how long our current crisis will go on, or how it will change the world as we know it. But at the end of all this our call will be the same, to proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord and to learn to love one another as He loves us. I pray this time of trial will help us to let that message enter even more deeply into our hearts.

I will try each day to give an update and prayer about 8:30 a.m. on Facebook. I will continue to give updates as we receive them. If you have any intentions, or any ideas to help us all go forward as a community in Christ, please let me know. The Lord give you Peace!      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

A Message from Sr. Carmen 3-21-2020

Prayer in the Time of the Coronavirus

Most Reverend José H. Gomez Archbishop of Los Angeles

Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of the Angels
and Mother of the Americas.

We fly to you today as your beloved children.
We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana. Pray for us, loving Mother, and gain for our nation and world, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness.

For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance. Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust.

In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind. Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.
We come to you with confidence, knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother, healer of the sick and cause of our joy. Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms, help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus.
