Most Holy Trinity Sunday
“I believe in one God, Almighty Father, I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ and I believe in the Holy Spirit” Nicene Creed
Today’s gospel continues with Jesus’ advice and instructions to the disciples at the Last Supper. He promises that the Spirit will be there to guide his followers to the truth. The Spirit will speak in Jesus’ name, just as Jesus speaks in the Father’s name. Each of these three Persons in one God belongs to the other. We call this mystery of God’s identity the Blessed Trinity. / John 16:12-15

A Special Prayer for Fathers
Dear God, Heavenly Father, we thank you for that special vocation you have granted to all fathers. Allow them to be the kind of loving father you yourself are for each one of us. Inspire each one of them to be the best dad their children could have. Grant eternal peace and rest to all our fathers that you have already called unto yourself. Let them extend their own blessings upon us who miss their presence. Bless each one of our fathers: May they be their children’s first teachers in the ways of faith through their testimony of their own words and actions. Amen.
The Most Holy Trinity
There is only ONE God, but in three different persons who have a different job in the history of salvation:
- God the Father is our Creator and continues his work of existence,
- God the Son Jesus Christ, is our Savior who continues his saving work among us
- God the Holy Spirit who makes God’s presence possible among us and sanctifies us
All three persons continue fulfilling their work of salvation and at the same remain in unity of love.
Father’s Day Envelopes
Special envelopes to commemorate our fathers are available at the parish office, in front of the Virgin de Guadalupe and at the back vestibule of the church. Please, write your loved ones’ names, deposit an offering and turn it in at the parish office or deposit it in the Sunday’s collection.
Tell your State Senator to vote “NO” on SB 360
The Bishops of California are urging Catholics to oppose SB 360, a California bill that seeks to force priests to disclose information heard in the sacrament of confession. We know that can never happen. Priests will never disclose what they hear in confession. We are asking all Catholics to tell your state Senators that we oppose the government interfering in our right to practice our faith. You are asked to call your CA Senator to oppose SB 360. See the Archdiocese website for more information at: www.la-archdiocese.org. Call your CA Senator Today or Sign a letter opposing SB 360 at archla.org/keeptheseal
