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

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!

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.)

What Cardinal Newman can teach the modern world about freedom of conscience

Rome, Italy, Oct 22, 2019 / 03:30 am (CNA).- The writings of newly-canonized St. John Henry Newman offer important reflections for contemporary society on freedom of conscience and the duty to search for truth, said a leading figure in international religious freedom.

The Archer Misses The Mark: A Review of Taylor Swift’s “Lover”

According to Aristotle, if we know about the greatest good, then we will have a target at which to aim. And if we miss the mark, at least we will know where to aim in the future. But not everyone knows about the greatest good, so some people will aim at a lesser good and hit a lower target, which is what Taylor Swift has done on her latest album, Lover. Musically speaking, and in terms of its production, Lover is a great success, as Swift and her favorite collaborator Jack Antonoff seem to have absolutely no trouble making an iconic pop record; but in terms of lyrical content, her aim is off. Swift’s favorite number is 13, so let’s start there, on the thirteenth track of the album with a song entitled, “False God.” Swift’s false god is romantic love, which in itself is a good, but it is not…

Evangelization, Catechesis, and the Art of Toddler Car Seat Negotiation

When I was finishing my graduate studies in theology, I imagined that I would spend my days as a theologian in an office surrounded by leather-bound books pouring over the translation of a particular Scripture passage, or I’d be in a classroom scrawling on a dusty chalkboard some phrase in Classical Hebrew script, or I’d be lecturing in a hall about the historical-critical method’s place in the rich history of biblical hermeneutics. It’s funny now, I think I imagined myself as a feminist theologian version of Indiana Jones. I never thought that I would spend an inordinate amount of my adult life repeating the same phrase over and over and over again: “Get in your car seat!” Most of the time, it was followed with an affectionate “Please?” Sometimes it was followed with an equally affectionate “Or else.” Nevertheless, I found myself repeating this phrase multiple times a day to…

Saint Luke, the Artist

St. Luke is known as a fellow worker with St. Paul, an evangelist (the author of the Gospel that bears his name and the Acts of the Apostles) and a physician. For iconographers, St. Luke is revered as the first (according to tradition) to write an icon of the Blessed Mother. In iconography, the verb “to write” is used rather than “to paint,” as an icon is considered visual theology. Now, to my knowledge, there is no known or authenticated icon that can be directly traced back to the hand of St. Luke, but I for one have no problem with considering this tradition a possibility. Luke was obviously a well-educated and gifted man with many skills and abilities. In the first few verses of his Gospel Luke establishes that his sources were some of the very people who were “eyewitnesses and ministers of the word.” Luke is the only…

U.S. Bishops to Vote for Chairman and Chairmen-elect of Six Standing Committees at Fall General Assembly in Baltimore, Nov. 11-13, 2019

WASHINGTON—The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) will be voting for the Chairman of the Committee for Religious Liberty, as well as for Chairman-elect of five standing committees during the 2019 General Assembly taking place November 11-13 in Baltimore, MD.

The five committee chairmen will serve for one year as chairmen-elect before beginning a three-year term at the conclusion of the bishops' 2020 Fall General Assembly. The bishop elected for chairman of the Committee for Religious Liberty fills the vacancy created earlier this year after the chairman stepped down for health reasons. At the conclusion of the bishops’ 2019 Fall General Assembly, the bishop elected to the Committee for Religious Liberty will assume the post of chairman. The bishops elected for the remaining five committees will serve for one year as chairmen-elect before beginning a three-year term.

Chairman of U.S. Bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace raises concern and solicits prayer over renewed violence in northeast Syria

WASHINGTON— The Most Reverend Timothy P. Broglio, Archbishop for the Military Services, USA, and Chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace, issued the following statement over renewed violence in northeast Syria:

“This past week has witnessed renewed military actions in Syria. It is estimated that over 100,000 people have already fled their homes in the past several days as a result. Unabated, such military actions will create further instability, violence, and hunger, exacerbating an already fragile humanitarian situation in northeast Syria and northern Iraq. The ancient Christians and other religious minorities who have called this region home for millennia are at-risk of being lost forever. I urge all regional and international actors in this complex conflict to renew themselves to peace over violence, and dialog over confrontation. And I invite all people of good will join me in beseeching our Lord, the Prince of Peace, for real solutions and stability and to prepare to meet the concrete needs of the new wave of refugees.”

Chairmen of U.S. Bishops’ Committees Comment on Federal Study Released on Danger of Assisted Suicide Laws to Persons with Disabilities

WASHINGTON—Last week, the National Council on Disabilities (NCD) released a federal study revealing that assisted suicide laws are dangerous to people with disabilities. In its report, “The Danger of Assisted Suicide Laws,” NCD provides several policy recommendations including urging states to not legalize any form of assisted suicide or active euthanasia. The NCD is an independent federal agency charged with advising the president, Congress, and other federal agencies regarding policies, programs, practices, and procedures that affect people with disabilities.

Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, of Kansas City in Kansas, and Chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Pro-Life Activities and Bishop Frank J.
