Weekly message from your St. Vincent de Paul conference for St. Mary's and St Anne's


As we begin Advent we are called to “Be watchful! Be alert” as we stand in joyful anticipation for the grace of Christmas to once again bless our lives. 

Your gift to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul will help the poor to celebrate the grace of God’s love this Christmas.



As we celebrate Christ the King, we hear Jesus say: “...whatever you did for one of the least brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” 

St Vincent De Paul meets every second Monday of the month, in room 1B at 6:30 p.m, and every forth Sunday at 9AM. Everyone is welcomed!

Mensaje semanal de su conferencia de San Vicente de Paul de Santa Maria y Santa Ana

Su donación a la Sociedad de San Vicente de Paul, ayudará a los pobres a celebrar la gracia del amor de Dios en esta Navidad.



Cuando celebramos a Cristo Rey, escuchamos a Jesús decir: "... todo lo que hiciste por uno de los más pequeños de mis hermanos y hermanas, lo hiciste por mí".  

St Vincent De Paul se reune cada segundo Lunes de cada mes en el salon 1B a las 6:30 p.m. y los cuartos domingos a las 9AM. Todos son bienvenidos!  

Quote of the Week

For  Quote of the week for 12/17/17, please see our bulletin for this week HERE.



“In the Virgin’s case, God’s action certainly seems surprising. Mary has no human claim to receiving the announcement of the Messiah’s coming. She is not the high priest, official representative of the Hebrew religion, nor even a man, but a young woman without any influence in the society of her time. In addition, she is a native of Nazareth, a village which is never mentioned in the Old Testament. It must not have enjoyed a good reputation, as Nathanael’s question, recorded in John’s Gospel, makes clear: “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” (Jn 1:46).

The extraordinary and gratuitous nature of God’s intervention becomes even clearer in comparison with Luke’s text, which recounts what happened to Zechariah. The latter’s priestly status is highlighted as well as his exemplary life, which make him and his wife Elizabeth models of Old Testament righteousness: they walked “blameless in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord” (Lk 1: 6).

But we are not informed of Mary’s origins either: the expression “of the house of David” (Lk 1:27) in fact refers only to Joseph. No mention is made then of Mary’s behavior. With this literary choice, Luke stresses that everything in Mary derives from a sovereign grace. All that is granted to her is not due to any claim of merit, but only to God’s free and gratuitous choice….

[Luke] present[s] Mary as the pure fruit of God’s good-will: he has so taken possession of her as to make her, according to the title used by the Angel, “full of grace”. The abundance of grace itself is the basis of Mary’s hidden spiritual richness.

-St. John Paul II, General Audience of 8 May 1996

Learning and Practicing the Faith

Q. Why do we have advent wreaths?

A. It is interesting how traditions come about, and how even things which we think of as important traditions are sometimes not very old at all.

As far as we know, many scholars think that what be-came the Advent wreath appeared among German Lu-therans in the 16th century. But the modern version that we know of dates to the 19th century. This version, besides the larger candles, had little candles for the weekdays in-between. The four larger candles were all white, not coordinated with the liturgy.

The custom became popular among German Catholics in the 1920s, and spread to the US and Canada in the 1930s (the Christmas tree also came from Germany, having been introduced to North America in the late 1700s), and contin-ued to spread until today, where we would think it odd if a parish in the US didn’t have an Advent wreath! In many places it became the custom to use 3 purple and 1 rose can-dle to imitate the liturgical colors for the Sundays (but this isn’t always the case. The one Pope Benedict had in his office used red candles!).

All of this goes to say that the Church is Catholic, that is, universal. It takes the good ideas it finds even in other de-nominations (or even non-Christian culture!) and puts them to use in Catholic life. Grace builds on nature, that is, God builds on the good that is already there; he doesn’t destroy everything we are to save us. It is also an example of how what we often take as ‘what is done’ is not necessarily the way for everyone, everywhere, at every time. This is the distinction between lowercase ‘t’ traditions, and capital ‘T’ Tradition. Little ‘t’ traditions come and go, and even though they might be important to us, they are not of the essence of the faith. That being said, they often help us to come into deeper contact with the great Tradition, God’s revelation which was given to the apostles and passed down over the centuries. The Advent wreath helps us to bring the liturgy of Advent into our homes, beautifully marking the progress of time as we await the coming of Christ, making the liturgy part of our daily life, as it should be.

Fun fact: in some places it is the custom that if someone is present named John or Joan (or similar), they get the right to light the candles, in honor of John the Baptist, who pointed the way to Christ
