sire it ourselves with all our might.”

- - - St. Teresa of Avila St. Teresa of Avila St. Teresa of Avila

A haz, the King of Judah at the time of Isaiah, was an apostate--he had gone to the worship of idols, hoping to save his kingdom, and had put his infant son to death in a sacrifice to one of them. And, of course, it had done no good--the enemy had the city of Jerusalem surrounded...BUT even this poor, grieving deluded wretch of a man and miserable leader as a king was not be- yond the loving mercy of God, and Isaiah blessed him, in spite of his sin, with a prom- ise of future greatness. Paul, in our second reading, sees that promise made to Ahaz as a harbinger of the coming the Messiah, in Whose service he, Paul, has placed his life.

And Matthew, too, uses the ancient promise made to Ahaz to illustrate the manifold bless- ing of God in the birth of the Christ. Friends, we all live in the shadow of ancient promises, just as valid today as they were when they were made. Each prophet was conditioned by his place and time---but, the Word of God lives. Let us put our faith in those promises of old, and our lives in the service of the One Who made them.

Fr. Bill Axe

E n el tiempo de Isaías, el Rey de Judá Ajaz era un apóstata, es decir que alababa a los ídolos esperando a que salvarían su reino, y hasta sacrificó a muer- te uno de sus hijos a uno de ellos. Claro que no hizo nada ya que el enemigo tenía rodea- da la ciudad de Jerusalén… PERO hasta es- te pobre hombre afligido y engañado no estaba fuera de la misericordia amorosa de Dios. Isaías lo bendijo a pesar de su pecado, con una promesa de tener un futuro gran- dioso. En la segunda lectura, Pablo ve a la promesa que se le hizo a Ajaz como una se- ñal del Mesías que vendrá, en Cuyo servicio Pablo había puesto su vida. Mateo también ve a la promesa que se le hizo a Ajaz para ilustrar la gran bendición de Dios en el na- cimiento de Cristo. Amigos, todos vivimos en la sombra de promesa antiguas, así de válidas el día de hoy como cuando se hicie- ron. Cada profeta fue condicionado por su lugar y tiempo– pero, la Palabra de Dios vi- ve. Pongamos nuestra fe en esas promesas del pasado, y nuestras vidas en el servicio de Aquel Quien las hizo.

H

oy escuchamos acerca de José y su parte en la historia de la Navidad. José dejó de lado sus ex- pectativas y planes para hacer la voluntad de Dios. Él estaba dispuesto a creer en un Dios que se le en- señó acerca de su fe, un Dios que nos ama y Quien quiere lo mejor para cada uno de nosotros. Esto puede suceder de manera diferente que como esperamos. Sé que para mí cuando las cosas van de manera diferente a lo que yo es- peraba, me siento molesta y fuera de onda. Sin embargo, sé muy dentro que lo que Dios quiere es lo mejor para mí.

Tenemos que pedirle a Dios que nos dé la fuerza que ne- cesitamos para aceptar las cosas, incluso si no son lo que esperábamos.

¡Gracias a todos los que nos ayudaron a celebrar nuestro 90 º aniversario. ¡Qué bendición para nuestra parroquia!

Pidamos a Dios que siga bendiciendo a Santa Águeda y nos ayude a llegar a ser la Parroquia que Él quiere que seamos.

Que tengan una semana bendecida,

T

oday we hear about Joseph and his part in the Christmas story. Joseph put aside his expecta- tions and plans to do the will of God. He was willing to believe in a God he was taught about in his faith, a God who loves us and wants the best for each of us. This may happen differently then we expect. I know for me that when things go differently than what I was expecting, I feel upset and off kilter. Yet I know deep inside that what God wants is what will best for me. We need to ask God to give us the strength we need to accept things even if they are not what we were expecting.

Thank you to all who helped us celebrate our 90th anniversary. The day was a blessing to our parish. Let us ask God to continue to bless St. Agatha’s and help us to grow into the Parish He wants us to be.

Have a blessed week, Sr. Karen

From the Faith Formation Office De la Oficina de Formación en la Fe

We would like to take the time to thank all of the peo- ple that come, and help us out on Saturdays. All our CCD and Confirmation catechist, and to our wonderful office helpers. Without any of them we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.

We had a successful Posada this pass Saturday with our CCD children, filled with reenacting the journey of Mary and Joseph, laughter, signing and piñatas; without the help of the catechists, and planning, we wouldn’t have been able to do it. And to our Office helpers that helped us by staying in the office to help every parent, and for those that were running around with us making sure the piñatas were ready to go. We would also like to thank the Family Catechesis for their support and commitment, not only by coming Saturdays to teach the parents, but also by coming on Wednesday. And to our catechist that come Sundays to volunteer with CLOW, Liturgia de la palabra, and Early Childhood. We would thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts, even when your heart have no bottom.

We want to wish you a Merry Christmas, filled with Love, Laughter, Hugs, and that your hearts are filled with the birth of Jesus this Christmas. Once again thank you for all you do.

Queremos tomarnos el tiempo de darles las gracias a todas las personas que vienen a ayudarnos los sába- dos. A todos nuestros catequistas y a nuestros ayudan- tes de oficina. Sin ustedes no podríamos hacer lo que hacemos.

Tuvimos una Posada exitosa este sábado pasado con nuestros niños del catecismo, con la jornada de María y José, llena de rizas, cantos y piñatas; sin la ayuda de los catequistas y sin planeación, no hubiera sido posible.

Gracias a nuestros ayudantes de oficina quienes ayudan a los papá, y por todos que estaban corriendo viendo que la piñatas estuvieran listas. También queremos darles las gracias a la Catequesis Familiar por su apo- yo y entrega, no sólo viniendo los sábados sino también los miércoles. Y a nuestros catequistas del domingo que nos ayudan con la Liturgia de la Palabra y la Educación Infantil. Les damos gracias desde el fondo de nuestros corazones, aún cuando sus corazones no tienen un fon- do.

Les deseamos Feliz Navidad, llena de Amor, Rizas, Abrazos, y que sus corazones estén llenos con el naci- miento de Jesús esta Navidad. Otra vez, gracias por todo lo que hacen.

Existen millones de juguetes en nuestra socie- dad y cientos de juguetes nuevos llegan a las tiendas cada año. Los juguetes son una parte importante del desarrollo de cualquier niño. Pero cada año decenas de niños son tratados en las sa- las de emergencia de hospitales por lesiones rela- cionadas con juguetes. Aquí hay algunos ejemplos generales a tener en cuenta al comprar juguetes:

Juguetes de tela deben ser etiquetados como resis- tentes al fuego o ignífugo. Los juguetes de pelu- che deben ser lavables. Juguetes que estén pinta- dos deben de ser cubiertos con pintura sin plomo.

Materiales de arte no deben ser tóxicos. Los pa- quetes de lápices de colores y pinturas deben de decir ASTM D-4236, lo que significa que han sido evaluados por la Sociedad Americana para Prue- bas y Materiales. Visite www.kidshealth.org.

IPSIPSFORFORCHOOSINGCHOOSINGSAFESAFETOYSTOYS Millions of toys are out there, and hundreds of new ones hit the stores each year. Toys are supposed to be fun and are an important part of any child's development. But each year, scores of kids are treated in hospital emergency depart- ments for toy-related injuries. Here are some gen- eral guidelines to keep in mind when toy-

shopping: Toys made of fabric should be labeled as flame resistant or flame retardant. Stuffed toys should be washable. Painted toys should be cov- ered with lead-free paint. Art materials should say nontoxic. Crayons and paints should say ASTM D-4236 on the package, which means that they've been evaluated by the American Society for Test- ing and Materials.
