Welcome to

Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church

in Ramona, CA

Maybe you grew up Catholic.
Maybe you think of yourself as Catholic.
Maybe you haven’t been to church in a while.
Or, you are worried that you won’t be welcomed here.
And maybe it feels awkward and scary to take that first step.
Question. Doubts. Yearning, but not sure for what.

We get it. We’ve been there. Now we are here.
Maybe God is calling you, too. Just as you are!

Welcome

 

Bienvenido a Iglesia Católica del Inmaculado Corazón de María en Ramona, CA

Quizás creciste católico. Quizás te consideres católico. Tal vez no has estado en la iglesia por un tiempo. O bien, le preocupa no ser bienvenido aquí.

Y tal vez se siente incómodo y aterrador dar ese primer paso. Pregunta. Dudas. Anhelo, pero no estoy seguro de qué. Lo entendemos.

Hemos estado allí Ahora estamos aqui. Quizás Dios también te está llamando. ¡Justo como tú eres!

Bienvenido

 

September 11th

A Prayer for the Fallen of 9-11

God of mercy,

in your word of Scripture, you instruct us to

“Do to others as you would have them do to you.”

 

Give us today the courage to assist those around us

who may need our assistance.

Give us patience when we become impatient.

 

Remind us to pray for all those who perished on

United Airlines 93, American Airlines 11,

United Airlines 175, American Airlines 77,

and those in the Twin Towers and Pentagon. 

 

Give us a heart

thankful for those who gave their lives

as first responders, as did the men and women

who ran into danger to be of aid.

 

We ask all this in the name of the One

who first responded to our need for a savior,

Jesus the Christ.

 

Amen.

Office for Life, Peace and Justice of the Diocese of San Diego

 The California Conference of Catholic Bishops is encour- aging the faithful to join in prayer in a Novena to defeat SB 24. SB 24 would mandate public universities in California to dispense abortion by medication techniques at on-campus student health centers. This bill is now fated to become law. From August 3rd through August 11th, the Diocese of San Diego will join other Dioceses in the state to pray a novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of unborn children, asking her intercession to defeat this bill.

 

Please join the Diocese in this prayer

 Novena Prayer to defeat SB 24

Virgin of Guadalupe, Mother of the Christ Child and Patroness of all unborn children, We implore your intercession for the defeat of Senate Bill 24 and for the protection of all human life.

Guide our public officials to see the tragedy and the injustice of abortion and to defend each and every human life through just laws.

lnspire us all to bring our faith into public life, To speak for those who have no voice.

We ask this in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, who is Love and Mercy itself.

Amen. Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be.

 

Oracion de Novena para vencer la medida del Senado #24

Y que defiendan toda y cada una de las vidas hu- manas atraves de leyes justas.

lnspirarnos a llevar nuestra fe a la vida publica, Hablar por los que no tienen voz.

Te lo pedimos en nombre de tu Hijo, Jesucristo, que es el amor y la misericordia misma.

Amen. Padre Nuestro, Ave Maria, Gloria.

Stewardship

In biblical usage, “Stewardship” is the management of whatever a person is entrusted with, not only to preserve but profitably administer for his master, ultimately for God. Christ proposed the faithful steward as model for the responsible Christian (Luke 12:42). The Apostles are chosen stewards of the divine mysteries (I Corinthians 4:1-2), and every Christian is a steward of the mysteries of God (I Peter 4:10). Jesus praised the unjust steward of the parable, not because he was dishonest, but because of his foresight, since "the children of this world are more astute in dealing with their own kind than are the children of light" (Luke 16:1-8). This is the ultimate lesson of stewardship: that a human being is not owner but only custodian of God's gifts in this world, to use them and produce with them the fruits of eternal life.
(Etym. Old English stigweard, "keeper of the hall": stig, hall + weard, keeper.)

Robert Bellarmine, the saint who defended the Church with charity

Rome, Italy, Sep 17, 2019 / 03:18 pm (CNA).- St. Robert Bellarmine, whose feast is celebrated Sept. 17 on the General Roman Calendar, was a Jesuit and a cardinal who used his incredible intellect to defend Catholic teaching, largely through responses to the Church’s opponents in the aftermath of the Protestant Reformation.

In all his writings, St. Bellarmine “maintained a charitable disputation that kept the focus on the theological issues,” according to Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J.

Marx says German 'synod' will proceed despite Vatican objections

Munich, Germany, Sep 16, 2019 / 11:45 am (CNA).- The head of the German bishops’ conference told Vatican officials last week that addressing controversial theological topics during the German bishops’ proposed “binding synodal path” will be a service to the universal Church.

“We hope that the results of forming an opinion [on these matters] in our country will also be helpful for the guidance of the Universal Church and for other episcopal conferences on a case-by-case basis. In any case, I cannot see why questions about which the Magisterium has made determinations should be withdrawn from any debate, as your writings suggest,” Cardinal Reinhard Marx wrote in a Sept. 12 letter to Cardinal Marc Ouellet, who is head of the Vatican’ Congregation for Bishops.

Vatican: German synod plans ‘not ecclesiologically valid’

Vatican City, Sep 12, 2019 / 01:18 pm (CNA).- In a letter sent to German bishops last week, the Vatican has said that plans for a binding Church synod in Germany are “not ecclesiologically valid.” 

Plans for a “binding synodal process” were first announced by Cardinal Reinhard Marx, head of the German episcopal conference, earlier this year.

Word of Fire by Bishop Barron

St. Robert Bellarmine, Patron Saint of Catechists

The reading at Mass today from the First Letter of St. Paul to Timothy enumerates the virtues required of a bishop. Among these we find that he should be “temperate, self-controlled, decent, hospitable, able to teach.” These traits, most outstandingly the last, accurately characterize the saint whom the Church celebrates today. St. Robert Bellarmine was a diocesan bishop for only two brief periods of a few years each, but during these times—and indeed throughout his life—he distinguished himself for his zeal and ability in preaching and teaching the faith. Born in Montepulciano in Italy, he joined the Jesuits at a young age. He played an important role in all the great theological controversies of his day, and he used his abilities and erudition to serve the Church well in many important and high-profile positions. Among these were the chair of controversies at the Roman College, trusted consultant to…

Why You Should Go to Church

This is not your grandmother. This is a guy who lived a pretty squalid life for a while and then, through the secretive, inner workings of God, alongside a fair amount of philosophical probing, came to embrace an entirely new mode of roaming the earth, one that is far more eurythmic with how life, I believe, is objectively meant to be lived, and still sensational, still fun. No, I didn’t discover nirvana (though I did try, once). Rather, at the age of twenty-eight, I became Catholic. With a background in philosophy, influenced heavily by those garrulous old atheists, I spent a substantial proportion of life thinking existence was absurd. So, I lived however I wanted. I wasn’t a heroin addict, and I didn’t rob banks. But I was pretty selfish and gross. I didn’t like to share. I didn’t like to give. I was a hedonist. (Once, I made liberal…

A Sickness Unto Death

Saint John Chrysostom tells us that “it is not so much sin as despair that casts us into hell.” How can this be? Despair is not the most serious of sins, but in the Christian life, it can be the most dangerous, for to despair is to anticipate damnation. Saint Thomas Aquinas considers despair a major factor in the “sin against the Holy Spirit” that Jesus speaks of in the Scriptures (ST II-II q. 14, a. 2): And whoever says a word against the Son of man will be forgiven; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come. (Matt. 12:32) What is despair but a final resistance to the gift of grace? It is the radical decision of a soul that no longer wishes to share the life of God, but desires to spend its life, and…

USCCB President and Migration Chair Urge Against Further Reduction in Refugee Resettlement as Contrary to American Values

WASHINGTON, D.C. —Administration officials will reportedly recommend to President Trump that the number of refugee admissions for the coming year will be fewer than 30,000 refugees, already an historic low. Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston and President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), and Bishop Joe S. Vásquez, Chair of USCCB Committee on Migration, issued the following statement:

“Further reductions in the number of refugees allowed to seek freedom in the United States would be wholly counter to our values as a nation of immigrants. America welcomes refugees; that is who we are, that is what we do. Such reductions would undermine America’s leadership role as a global champion and protector of religious freedom and human rights. Beginning with European refugees in the aftermath of World War I, the Catholic Church in the United States has more than a century of experience resettling vulnerable populations to a safer life and one in which they have contributed to the greatness of America. The 3.4 million refugees that America has welcomed since 1975 have paid billions of dollars in taxes, founded companies, earned citizenship, and bought homes at notably high rates.
