Advent: Making the Holidays Holy, not Hectic This time of year is commonly called the “Holiday Season” among Christians and nonChristians alike. “Holiday” is simple an old-English word for holy day. However, I think many people would call this season the hectic days. In order to make these holidays holy and not hectic, we need to begin by making the firm decision that we want to set these days aside as sacred. Advent is a time to prepare to commemorate the birth of Jesus 2,000 years ago, but it is about much more than that. Advent is also a sacred time to prepare and repair our hearts so that our Lord will find a renewed and longing heart for Him. The third aspect of Advent, which is equally important, is that it’s a time to “wait in joyful hope for the coming of our savior Jesus Christ” at His second and final coming. Here are a few recommendations to make the holidays holy, not hectic: Decorate your home and office using the Advent color of violet. Place an Advent wreath at your dinner table or your prayer corner. (You can find prayers for the Advent wreath online.) Listen to Advent Music. (See http://catholic-resources.org/Lectionary/Seasons-Advent-Christmas.htm) 25 Days of Prayer and Compassion– Free book and online version available in English and Spanish. Little Blue Books – Available in English and Spanish. House of Prayer Videos – We will be showing a short video on ways to pray a couple of times each month before the closing prayer at Sunday Mass. The Sacrament of Reconciliation: In addition to our regular Confession times, we will also have an Advent Penance Service on December 14th at 7:00 p.m. Celebrate Advent with Our Lady: the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception (a holy day) is December 8th, and the Solemnity of Our Lady of Guadalupe is December 12th.

1st Sunday in Advent



Adviento: Hacer las fiestas santas, y no agitadas. En esta época del año comúnmente se le llama "temporada de fiestas" entre los cristianos y no cristianos por igual. "Holiday" es una palabra vieja-en Inglés que simplemente significa; día santo. Sin embargo, creo que mucha gente llamaría esta temporada “días agitados”. Con el fin de hacer estas fiestas santas y no agitadas, tenemos que empezar por tomar una decisión firme y reservar estos días como algo sagrado. El Adviento es un tiempo de preparación para conmemorar el nacimiento de Jesús hace 2000 años, pero es mucho más que eso. Adviento es también un tiempo sagrado para preparar y reparar nuestros corazones para que nuestro Señor encuentre un corazón renovado y lleno de anhelo por Él. El tercer aspecto de Adviento, es igualmente importante, es un momento donde "esperamos con alegría la gloriosa venida de nuestro Salvador Jesucristo" en su segunda y última venida. Aquí están algunas recomendaciones para hacer estas fiestas santas, y no agitadas: Decore su casa o la oficina utilizando el color de Adviento que es violeta. Coloque una corona de Adviento en su comedor o en el lugar donde haga oración. (Puede encontrar oraciones de Adviento en el internet) Escuche Música de Adviento. (Visite esta página: http://catholic-resources.org/Lectionary/Seasons-Advent-Christmas.htm) Habrá libros gratuitos de 25 Días de Oración y Compasión, una versión de este libro está disponible en inglés y español por internet. Libros chiquitos de color azul - Disponible en Inglés y Español. Videos sobre una Casa de Oración - Estaremos mostrando un breve vídeo antes de la oración final en la misa dominical, dos veces por mes, sobre diferentes formas de orar. El Sacramento de la Reconciliación: Además del horario regular de Confesiones, también vamos a tener Confesiones de Adviento el 14 de diciembre a las 7:00 pm en San Eduardo. Celebrar el Adviento con la Virgen: la solemnidad de la Inmaculada Concepción (un día santo) el 8 de diciembre, y la solemnidad de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe el 12 de diciembre.

Help the Homeless Donate a Warm Jacket or Sleeping Bag Welcome Inn

Clothing & Sleeping Bag Drive After Masses on December 12 & 13 The homeless are just that. They wear the same clothes day and night and carry their possession with them. With cold weather upon us, they need washable sleeping bags and lightweight fleece throws. The homeless in our area - who are predominately men —need warm outdoor jackets, preferably weather-proof, that are large enough to accommodate multiple layers of clothing underneath. (No dress jackets or coats, please!) The men also need: sweatshirts, long-sleeve shirts, socks (L), gloves, knit scarves, and hooded plastic ponchos.

WELCOME INN volunteers will be at St. Edward the Confessor Church after Masses on December12 & 13 to collect these items that they will distribute to the homeless in our area. 1st Sunday in Advent

Stop Assisted Suicide in CA before it’s too late! Earlier this year, through a Special Session, the CA legislature passed assisted suicide, allowing doctors to prescribe overdose medication to terminally ill patients. Join a coalition of physicians, nurses, disability-rights organizations, and people of all faiths to stand for the lives of our elderly and dying and oppose assisted suicide! Today petitions will be available for signature outside of Masses. Signers must be registered to vote and can only sign once. Why Oppose Assisted Suicide?

 Sends the Wrong Message: Legalizing suicide for the terminally ill, while dis-

couraging it for the rest of the population, teaches that the lives of the ill and disabled do not matter to our society.


Will Worsen Patient Care: Patients in other states, like Barbara Wagner in Oregon, are being denied treatment prescribed by their doctors, and instead offered drugs for assisted suicide.

 Will Increase Non-Terminal Suicide Rates: Suicides skyrocket when assisted suicide is legalized. Oregon's suicide rate for non-terminal people increased 49% after assisted suicide became legal.

Brighten the Holidays for Someone Less Fortunate Here are three simple ways that you and your family can share the joy of Christmas with a local poor person or family. 1. Adopt-a-Family. If you are willing to provide food and gifts for a family this Christmas, please select an envelope from the Christmas tree which will be in the vestibule of the church on November 29th. On the front of each envelope will be the number of members in the family listed inside. Instructions and information about the family you selected are also inside the envelope. 2. Donate a gift card. Give joy anonymously to someone in need by donating a gift card for food (grocery stores like Ralphs or Albertsons) or for clothing or necessities (Walmart, Target, CVS). Put your gift card in the Christian Service Gift Box in the St. Edward Parish Office by Tuesday, December 15th. 3. Donate a toy. Help bring joy to a child! Please leave an unwrapped new or hand-crafted toy in the decorated box in the vestibule of the church by Tuesday, December15th.

May God Bless You
