(2) PAGE 2. From the Pastors Desk + September 26, 2021. Dear Faith Family of Our Lady of Grace, Praised be Jesus Christ…now and forever! The US Catholic Church this weekend celebrates, “Priesthood Sunday.” In a me when priesthood is stretched and being purified there is also a renewal that is taking place in the priesthood. In 2003, the USA Council of Serra Interna onal—the organiza on whose mission is to foster and affirm voca ons to the priesthood and vowed religious life—organized the first Priesthood Sunday. They felt there was a great need to honor those who are called to be priests. There are many references throughout the Old and New Testament regarding the importance of priests and clergy: “I will give you pastors according to my heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding” (Jeremiah 3:15). In Mark 16:15, Jesus told the apostles, “Go to all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole crea on.” •. • • • •. The role of priests is essen al to the prosperity of the Church. Priests wear many hats in the Church, yet the most important is to be a mediator between God and us. Without priests, there would be no one to transform the bread into the Body of Christ, no one to absolve us of our sins, no one to marry us, bury us, and the list goes on…Here is some basic informa on and sta s cs on the priesthood in our current ecclesial situa on: As of 2014 there are 38,275 Catholic priests in the U.S. and 414,313 worldwide. There was a modest increase in the number of priests in Africa, a larger rise in Asia, and slight decreases in the Americas, Europe and Oceania. Asia saw a 13.7 percent growth in the number of priests between 2007 and the end of 2012. The number of parishes without a resident priest pastor: 3,496.. Here at OLG we con nue to build a culture of voca ons par cularly as we encourage voca ons to priesthood and religious life. Last week I was a ending the Na onal Voca on Directors Conference we reflected on how we are in the mission of making disciples when we accept and invite men and women to discern voca ons. We are living an apostolic age when our rela onships give us an iden ty and our iden ty gives us a mission. What we do (our mission) flows from our iden ty (who we are), and who we, are begins with our hearts in communion with Jesus. Finding or “figuring out” our voca on will not make us happy on its own. Our rela onship with Jesus makes us brings us happiness, because with Him is the fullness of life and love. Our rela onship with God gives us joyful clarity about who we are and what we are about. This weekend we want to thank Anisha Virgen, our director of outreach, and her team of volunteers for establishing our monthly service projects. Your dona on of canned goods will be able to replenish the food banks in the San Fernando Valley. True Chris an Charity is rooted in the Eucharist. Jesus’ self-giving pours himself out in love so that love can be poured out in the world in social jus ce and charity especially as lay people, for us Catholics, this takes on special meaning today. According to the Second Va can Council, "It is the special voca on of the laity to seek the kingdom of God by engaging in temporal affairs and direc ng them according to God's will. They live in the world, in each one of the world's occupa ons and callings and in the ordinary circumstances of social and family life which, as it were, form the context of their existence. There they are called by God to contribute to the sanc fica on of the world within, like leaven, in the spirit of the Gospel, by fulfilling their own par cular du es." Please join us for the upcoming feast day of the French Carmelite nun and doctor of the church, St. Therese of the Child Jesus and Holy Face on October 1st. We will conclude our solemn novena on that day with two Masses- 8am and 6:30pm (with the blessing and distribu on of roses). May St. Therese send us a shower of roses for our parish family sending us holy families, holy voca ons, and holy priests! We also congratulate our Society of St. Vincent de Paul for their efforts these years of Chris an service. Last week they spoke at all the Masses please con nue to support their upcoming Walk for the Poor on October 2nd. See you all there! Have a great week! In Jesus and Mary,. -Fr. Marinello Saguin.

(3) PAGE 3. Mensaje del Párroco + 26 de septiembre, 2021. Querida Familia de Fe de Nuestra Señora de Gracia, Alabado sea Jesucristo... ¡ahora y para siempre! La Iglesia católica de Los Estados Unidos, celebra este día como, "Domingo del Sacerdocio". En un empo en que el sacerdocio se es ra y se purifica, también hay una renovación que está teniendo lugar en el sacerdocio. En 2003, el Consejo de Estados Unidos de Serra Interna onal, la organización cuya misión es fomentar y afirmar las vocaciones al sacerdocio y la vida religiosa con votos, organizó el primer Domingo del Sacerdocio. Sineron que había una gran necesidad de honrar a aquellos que están llamados a ser sacerdotes. Hay muchas referencias a lo largo del An guo y Nuevo Testamento con respecto a la importancia de los sacerdotes y el clero: "Os daré pastores según el corazón, que os alimentará con conocimiento y entendimiento" (Jeremías 3:15). En Marcos 16:15, Jesús les dijo a los apóstoles: "Vayan a todo el mundo y proclamen el evangelio a toda la creación". •. • • • •. El papel de los sacerdotes es esencial para la prosperidad de la Iglesia. Los sacerdotes usan muchos sombreros en la Iglesia, sin embargo, el más importante es ser un mediador entre Dios y nosotros. Sin sacerdotes, no habría nadie que transformara el pan en el Cuerpo de Cristo, nadie que nos absolvera de nuestros pecados, nadie que se casara con nosotros, nos enterrara, y la lista con núa... Aquí hay información básica y estadís cas sobre el sacerdocio en nuestra situación eclesial actual: A par r de 2014 hay 38,275 sacerdotes católicos en los Estados Unidos y 414,313 en todo el mundo. Hubo un modesto aumento en el número de sacerdotes en África, un aumento mayor en Asia y ligeras disminuciones en las Américas, Europa y Oceanía. Asia experimentó un crecimiento del 13,7 por ciento en el número de sacerdotes entre 2007 y finales de 2012. El número de parroquias sin sacerdote pastor residente: 3.496.. Aquí con nuamos construyendo una cultura de vocaciones, par cularmente a medida que alimentamos el llamado a las vocaciones al sacerdocio y a la vida religiosa. La semana pasada estuve asis endo a la Conferencia Nacional de directores de Vocaciones reflexionamos sobre cómo estamos en la misión de hacer discípulos cuando aceptamos e invitamos a hombres y mujeres a discernir vocaciones. Estamos viviendo una era apostólica en la que nuestras relaciones nos dan una iden dad y nuestra idendad nos da una misión. Lo que hacemos (nuestra misión) fluye de nuestra iden dad (quiénes somos), y quiénes somos, comienza con nuestros corazones en comunión con Jesús. Encontrar o "descubrir" nuestra vocación no nos hará felices por sí solos. Nuestra relación con Jesús nos ayuda a encontrar la felicidad, porque con Él está la plenitud de la vida y del amor. Nuestra relación con Dios nos da gozo y nos acerca de quiénes somos en realidad. Este fin de semana queremos agradecer a Anisha Virgen, nuestra directora de ayuda a la comunidad, y a su equipo de voluntarios por establecer nuestros proyectos de servicio mensuales. Su donación de productos enlatados podrá reponer los bancos de alimentos en el Valle de San Fernando. La verdadera caridad cris ana ene sus raíces en la Eucaris a. La entrega de Jesús se derrama en amor para que el amor pueda ser derramado en el mundo en jus cia social y caridad, especialmente como laicos, para nosotros los adictos, esto adquiere un significado especial hoy. Según el Concilio Va cano II, "la vocación especial de los laicos es buscar el reino de Dios comprome éndose en los asuntos temporales y dirigiéndolos según la voluntad de Dios. Viven en el mundo, en cada una de las ocupaciones y vocaciones del mundo y en las circunstancias ordinarias de la vida social y familiar que, por así decirlo, forman el contexto de su existencia. Allí son llamados por Dios a contribuir a la san ficación del mundo interior, como levadura, en el espíritu del Evangelio, cumpliendo sus propios deberes par culares". Por favor, únase a nosotros para la próxima fiesta de la monja carmelita francesa y doctora de la iglesia, Santa Tesa del Niño Jesús y santa faz el 1 de octubre. Concluiremos nuestra solemne novena ese día con dos misas: 8am y 6:30pm (con la bendición y distribución de rosas). ¡Que Santa Therese nos envíe una lluvia de rosas para nuestra familia parroquial enviándonos a las sagradas familias, a las santas vocaciones y a los santos sacerdotes! También felicitamos a nuestra Sociedad de San Vicente de Paúl por sus esfuerzos en estos años de servicio cris ano. La semana pasada hablaron en todas las misas, por favor con núen apoyando su próxima Caminata por los Pobres el 2 de octubre. ¡Nos vemos allí! ¡Les deseo una semana de bendiciones! En Jesús y María,. -Padre Marinello Saguin.
