Pastor's Message

The seasons of the Church like the Gospels themselves are meant to shake us up. Today’s lesson of the end of time wakes us up as it shakes us up. Frankly, it disorientates me. Advent is the time to prepare for an important arrival: Are we preparing for the infant Jesus or the already lived and died Risen Lord? For whom or what are you preparing?

As you go through the season of Advent to Christmas time, reflect on this question: “What is important and why?” While those amusing and annoying advertisements are showing us a lot of stuff we need to buy, how much spent on how much more stuff will make a real difference in your life? The ads and marketplace scream: “If you don’t want to be left out buy this today, wear this now, make your life easier with one of these, do this and you will have a better forever.” Of course, it’s all half price the day after and reduced even greater after that. The media will report how much money was spent, how much was charged, and how many extra workers were employed.

Yet how will we know how many Christians renewed their faith in Jesus? How will we know how many not-yet-Christians began conversion because of the witness of the faithful who “kept Christ in Christmas?”

This Advent how do you prepare to receive the gift that is Jesus? What will your belief cause you to do that will shake up your family and friends?

We really are free to do as we choose. As many chose to buy even through credit, will you chose to believe in the Kingdom of God and reform your life accordingly?

Following with the theme above, we might be free to choose but we cannot evade the consequence of our choice. After every Mass this weekend a petition to introduce a California State referendum to overturn California’s Assisted suicide law will be available for signatures of registered voters in the County of Orange. When the law goes into effect, it will allow a terminally ill, mentally com- petent adult to obtain a prescription for a life-ending drug provided two doctors confirm the diagnosis and prognosis, and other safe- guards are met. Simply stated, a law declares an action legal/illegal, not moral. If the petition is signed by the required number of voters and filed with the Secretary of State, a challenge to the law approved by the Legislature and Govern can be placed on the state wide ballot. It is important that only voters in Orange County sign the petition and that your information is printed clearly.

I provide the following from the letter of the Catholic Bishops: To Live Each Day with Dignity: A Statement on Physician-Assisted Suicide. You may find the entire letter on-line.

“To live in a manner worthy of our human dignity, and to spend our final days on this earth in peace and comfort, surrounded by loved ones—that is the hope of each of us. In particular, Christian hope sees these final days as a time to prepare for our eternal destiny.

“Today, however, many people fear the dying process. They are afraid of being kept alive past life’s natural limits by burdensome medical technology. They fear experiencing intolerable pain and suffering, losing control over bodily functions, or lingering with severe dementia. They worry about being abandoned or becoming a burden on others.

Our society can be judged by how we respond to these fears. A caring community devotes more attention, not less, to members facing the most vulnerable times in their lives. When people are tempted to see their own lives as diminished in value or meaning, they most need the love and assistance of others to assure them of their inherent worth.

The healing art of medicine is an important part of this assistance. Even when a cure is not possible, medicine plays a critical role in providing “palliative care”—alleviating pain and other symptoms and meeting basic needs. Such care should combine medical skill with attention to the emotional as well as spiritual needs of those facing the end of life.
