Dear Friends in Christ,

I am going to take advantage of Fr. Achilles’ kindness and generosity in serving our parish.  I am looking forward to spending a week in Florida with my niece and grand nephews and then on to Ocean Beach for my annual retreat at a spirituality center run by the Congregation of the Sacred Heart.  I am looking forward to some rest and relaxation and, God willing, a little sunshine and warm temperatures.  I will be back in time to cheer on our Seahawks in Superbowl LI! 

As the Christmas Season came to a close last Monday with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, I leave with you this beautiful reflection given to the priests of our Archdiocese by Archbishop Hunthausen many years ago:

If, as with Herod, we fill our lives with things, and again with things;

And if we consider ourselves so important that we fill every moment of our lives with action - -

When will we have the time to make the long slow journey across the burning desert as did the Magi?

Or sit and watch the stars as did the shepherds?

Or ponder in our hearts the coming of the child as did Mary?

For each of us there is a desert to travel, a star to discover,

And a being within ourselves to bring to life.

Peace+     Fr. Tom

Queridos amigos en Cristo,

Voy a tomar ventaja de la bondad y generosidad del Padre Aquiles en servir a nuestra parroquia.  Estoy muy emocionada en para una semana en Florida con mi sobrina y sobrino y luego me ire a Ocean Beach para mi retiro anual en un centro de espiritualidad dirigido por la Congregación del Sagrado Corazón. Estoy deseando un poco de descanso y relajación y, si Dios quiere, un poco de sol y temperaturas cálidas. J ¡Volveré a tiempo para animar a nuestros Seahawks en Superbowl LI!

A medida que la temporada Navideña llegó a su fin el lunes pasado con la Fiesta del Bautismo del Señor, les dejo esta hermosa reflexión a los sacerdotes de nuestra Arquidiócesis por el Arzobispo Hunthausen hace muchos años:

Si, como con Herodes, llenamos nuestras vidas de cosas, y de nuevo con cosas;

Y si nos consideramos tan importantes que llenamos cada momento de nuestras vidas con acción -

¿Cuándo tendremos el tiempo para hacer el largo y lento viaje por el ardiente desierto como hicieron los Reyes Magos?

¿O sentarse y observar las estrellas como lo hicieron los pastores?

¿O meditar en nuestros corazones la venida del niño como lo hizo María?

Para cada uno de nosotros hay un desierto para viajar, una estrella para descubrir,

Y un ser dentro de nosotros mismos para dar vida.

 

Paz+

Padre Tom
