Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
FRIDAY FOLLOWING SECOND SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
Solemnity June 11, 2021 9:00 am Mass
In the early Middle Ages, devotion to the Heart of Jesus was connected with devotion to his Passion—his Heart being the symbol of his redemptive love. Though the devotion was known for centuries, it only became widespread in France through the zealous preaching and admirable writings of St. John Eudes (see August 19). It was, however, first to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque (see October 16) that Christ revealed the treasures of his Sacred Heart and asked that a feast be celebrated in its honor. When these revelations became public, the devotion became popular, for it now took on specific devotional practices, such as that of the First Fridays and reparation to the Sacred Heart. St. Claude La Colombière (see February 15) worked with St. Margaret Mary in trying to have such a feast approved in the Church. It was in 1765 that Pope Clement XIII first allowed such a feast to be celebrated in Poland and at the Archconfraternity of the Sacred Heart in Rome. Pope Pius IX then ordered (1856) it to be celebrated throughout the world on the Friday following the Second Sunday after Pentecost, when it is still celebrated. In 1899,
Pope Leo XIII consecrated the human race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary
SATURDAY AFTER THE SECOND SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
Memorial June 12, 2021 9:00 am Mass
Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary has its roots in the writings of St. John Eudes (see August 19), who was a staunch promoter of the devotion to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. By the beginning of the nineteenth century, devotion to Mary’s Immaculate Heart was sufficiently widespread in Europe for Pope Pius VII to allow (1805) a feast in its honor, in those dioceses that chose to celebrate it. Then, when the world was being torn apart by World War II, Pope Pius XII consecrated (December 8, 1942) the human race to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and in 1944 the same pontiff extended the feast to the universal Church and fixed its celebration as August 22. Because August 22 is now the feast of the Queenship of Mary, the memorial honoring her Immaculate Heart is appropriately celebrated on the day following the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
St Malachy's celebrated a wonderful Baccalaureate Mass on May 27.

Friday after Ascension Thursday -- Saturday, the Vigil of Pentecost
This is the prototype of all novenas. It commemorates the nine days between the Ascension of Our Lord and the descent of the Holy Spirit on the first Pentecost Sunday. During this time Our Lady and the twelve Apostles prayed in the upper room for the coming of the Paraclete.
O Holy Spirit, O my God, I adore Thee, and acknowledge, here in Thy divine presence, that I am nothing and can do nothing without Thee. Come, great Paraclete, Thou father of the poor, Thou comforter the best, fulfil the promise of our blessed Savior, Who would not leave us orphans, and come into the mind and the heart of Thy poor, unworthy creature, as Thou didst descend on the sacred day of Pentecost on the holy Mother of Jesus and on His first disciples. Grant that I may participate in those gifts which Thou didst communicate to them so wonderfully, and with so much mercy and generosity. Take from my heart whatever is not pleasing to Thee, and make of it a worthy dwelling-place for Thyself. Illumine my mind, that I may see and understand the things that are for my eternal good. Inflame my heart with pure love of Thee, that I may be cleansed from the dross of all inordinate attachments, and that my whole life may be hidden with Jesus in God. Strengthen my will, that I may be made conformable to Thy divine will, and be guided by Thy holy inspirations. Aid me by Thy grace to practice the divine lessons of humility, poverty, obedience, and contempt of the world, which Jesus taught us in His mortal life.
Oh, rend the heavens, and come down, consoling Spirit! that inspired and encouraged by Thee, I may faithfully comply with the duties of my state, carry my daily cross most patiently, and endeavor to accomplish the divine will with the utmost perfection. Spirit of love! Spirit of purity! Spirit of peace! Sanctify my soul more and more, and give me that heavenly peace which the world cannot give. Bless our Holy Father the Pope, bless the Church, bless our bishops, our priests, all Religious Orders, and all the faithful, that they may be filled with the spirit of Christ and labor earnestly for the spread of His kingdom.
O Holy Spirit, Thou Giver of every good and perfect gift, grant me, I beseech Thee, the intentions of this novena. May Thy will be done in me and through me. Mayest Thou be praised and glorified forevermore! Amen.

Letter from our Parish Nurse:
As we live through this pandemic, it has affected many aspects of our lives. Masks, services and meetings canceled, school at home, altered work, loss, unemployment and underemployment are just a sample of the effects.
There have been illnesses and deaths, including in our community. The good news is that we now have vaccines available. We can be optimistic about this. Congratulations to the developers of these vaccines and thanks for your efforts!
This has been a stressful time for many. None of us know how this will play out over the next number of months. There are reasons for optimism and reasons for concern. There are concerns about changes to the virus (variants). Uncertainty is challenging to manage, especially uncertainty about something we have never experienced.
Here are a few things to consider. First and foremost, be kind to yourself. Do what you can, and then give yourself credit for it. Focus on the basics. Care for each other. Didn't get some housework done today? There's always another day. Focus first on the people, not the things.
Stay informed. Think about what you can control. Try not to worry about what you can't control.
And finally, put yourself in others' shoes. What is it like for the family who lost their grandmother to the disease? Or the person who lost his job? Or the child struggling with virtual learning and missing his friends?
We are a community of faith. None of us can "fix" this pandemic. We can, though, reach out and support each other. Being there for each other may make all the difference.
If you'd like to talk more about this, contact the church office.

Great news and prayers answered by the Supreme Court and Bishop Brennan! We can resume indoor Masses at 25% capacity meaning around 110 parishioners for each Mass. Also, we will resume 5:30 pm Saturday Vigil Mass next weekend including radio broadcast. We will continue to livestream and radio broadcast the Masses on Sunday 8:00 am (English), 9:30 am (English), 11:00 am (Spanish) and 1:00 pm Latin Tridentine. Communion will be available for those wishing to remain in their vehicles in the parking lot. Please let everyone know about the new changes.
Here is the notification from the Diocese: “On behalf of Bishop Brennan: The Supreme Court has ruled that the State of California cannot ban in-door worship services, however; it can cap indoor services at 25% of a building's capacity.
Each Pastor/Administrator can make the pastoral decision to move Masses indoors. The parishes should enforce a limit of 25 percent of capacity, follow the six-foot spacing between family groups, require masks, have sanitation stations available, no singing/chanting allowed.”
God Bless, Fr. Mark

Prayer in time of Pandemic
you always brighten our path
as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who, at the Cross, took part in Jesus’ pain while remaining steadfast in faith.
O loving Mother,
you know what we need,
and we are confident you will provide for us as at Cana in Galilee.
Intercede for us with your Son Jesus,
the Divine Physician,
for those who have fallen ill,
for those who are vulnerable,
and for those who have died. Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure.
Help us, O Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who took upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows,
so as to lead us, through the Cross,
to the glory of the Resurrection. Amen.
Under thy protection we seek refuge, O Holy Mother of God.
In our needs, despise not our petitions, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
Adapted from the prayer of Pope Francis.
