We believe that each of us is called to be a supportive, compassionate, and caring Christian witness in Mission Viejo, the Diocese of Orange and in the world.
2 Page 2 Fourth Sunday of Advent Pastor s Page "Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel." Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, How unsearchable are the judgments of God and how inscrutable his ways!" as St. Paul says to the Romans (11: 33). If God had preserved the kingdom of Judah (which he could so easily have done), and if the Messiah, the son of David, were to be born in the royal palace in Jerusalem, it would be natural and we would almost say, more fitting the dignity of the Messiah. Instead, God allowed the kingly line, and the throne of Judah, to disappear, and he chose a humble carpenter of Nazareth, a true descendant of David but a lowly one, to be the foster-father of his divine Son, when he took human nature and came on earth to "dwell among us." But God's ways are not our ways. It is not by their social standing, nor by their bank-accounts, that God values men. Virtue is the scale he uses when weighing men. In God's eyes, no king sat on the throne of Judah, not even David himself, who was more acceptable to God as foster-father for his Son, than the carpenter of Nazareth. This is the last Sunday of our preparation for Christmas, the anniversary of Christ's birth. Like Joseph, we can all feel unworthy of the honor of welcoming him into our hearts and our homes. We are indeed unworthy, not because we have little of this world's goods, but because we have so little humility, so little charity, so little faith and trust in God's goodness. Let us try to imitate Joseph and Mary, the humblest of the humble, the kindliest of the kindly, and the greatest-ever believers in God's goodness and mercy. We can never hope to equal them, but we can follow them humbly, from afar. The feast of Christmas should draw the hearts of every child of God towards the furnace of divine love. In the manger, the infinite love of God for us miserable sinners is dramatically and forcefully portrayed before our eyes. In that helpless Baby, represented by a statue, we know that the person, and the power, of the omnipotent Creator and sustainer of the universe lie hidden "He emptied himself, taking the form of a slave" for us. He became a creature, like ourselves, so that he would make us sharers in his divine nature. He came on earth to bring us to heaven. He hid his divine nature so that he could cover us with it. "Unsearchable indeed are the judgments of God, and inscrutable his ways." But though we are unworthy of his infinite love, it nevertheless stands out as clear as the noonday sun in the Incarnation. We realize that we can never make ourselves worthy of this infinite love, but let us imitate Joseph and accept the honor which God is giving us, as we trust that he will continue to make us daily less unworthy. by Father Kevin O Sullivan, O.F.M. *Father Kevin was professor of Sacred Scripture at Christ the King Seminary and St. Bonaventure University in N.Y. and later in the National Seminary, Pretoria, South Africa and as a pastoral priest in Ireland.

3 St. Kilian Catholic Church Page 3 Dear St. Kilian Parish Family, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for welcoming me and making me feel right at home from the very first day I arrived at St. Kilian's. It has been one of the happiest experiences of my life to serve you and your families over the last four months. I am sincerely grateful to Bishop Vann, Fr. Bruce, Fr. Wayne, Fr. Steve Solat, the St. Kilian Administrative Staff, and the whole parish for every kindness shown to me! It has been a privilege to serve you! I will be going back to the Diocese of Peoria, Illinois at the beginning of January to assist my mother who is battling Breast Cancer for the second time. It is my hope to one day return to the Orange Diocese and continue to serve as a priest here. Please remember me in your prayers. Be assured of my daily prayers for you and your family, especially during Mass and my Holy Hour. Remember that each of you is on a Mission for Jesus! No fear, no doubt, no worries. Confidence in God! One day at a time... Never give up! I will miss you! In the Father s love and blessing, your brother in Christ, Fr. Dan PARKING RESTRICTIONS FOR SUNDAY MASSES As a reminder, parking is NOT allowed in the Walgreens parking lot. Also, do not park along Montanoso, where the No Parking signs are.
