SAINT MARY’S AND SAINT CHARLES BORROMEO PARISHES
Parroquias de Santa María y San Carlos Borromeo
Solemnidad de la Epifanía del Señor
ANNULMENTS
Pope Francis, in his desire to celebrate the year of mercy, has
decided to streamline the process for annulments as much as
possible. The concept of annulment is itself a form of mercy.
Jesus Christ said that marriage between a man and woman is
sacred and for all of life. Christ made marriage a sacrament. And
yet throughout history marriages have failed and ended before
one of the spouses died. In light of this reality and with the
responsibility to be faithful to the teaching of Jesus, the Church
established a system of tribunals to help people find out if there
was an impediment to the marriage from the beginning. When
something is discovered that shows that the couple was blocked
in living out the marriage, even when they desired to do so on
their wedding day, the Church is able to nullify the union. The
Pope has called for the tribunals throughout the world to perform
the annulments free of charge. In Boston, this means the Catholic
Appeal will have to foot the bill for this office. (The Church was
already doing this without cost for people with financial need.)
There is also a new process for couples in certain circumstances
that will require less work and time. This process depends on
whether both spouses agree that an annulment should be granted.
(Often times only one spouse agrees or decides to take part in the
process.) There are some other changes that may help people
who are in need of an annulment, especially if they want to
marry someone else with the blessing of God. It may be a good
time to pursue this. Please also spread the word to your children,
siblings, grandchildren co-workers and friends who may wish
take part in this process which often brings healing to people.
UPDATE ON WEDDING AT CANA II
We are postponing the wedding of Cana until the Fall. If there
are any couples who would like to get married in the church next
Fall but do not want to spend thousands of dollars and hours and
hours of planning and worrying, please contact one of the priests.
This past year, seven couples were married on this night. We
want to help you and others celebrate your wedding with
simplicity and grace without stressing you out both before the
big day and after the credit cards bills arrive.
STRUGGLING IN YOUR MARRIAGE?
You are not alone! If your marriage is tearing the two of you
apart, if there is little or no meaningful communication, if you
are considering separation or divorce, we believe Retrouvaille
can help. Our peer ministry is led by couples who have lived
through the honeymoon phase often followed by deep
disillusionment before finally finding resurrection in their
marriages using the tools taught in this program. Rediscover a
loving marriage with a Retrouvaille weekend. The upcoming
New England marriage renewal weekends will be held on the
following dates in 2016: January 8-10, April 8-10, Sept. 16-18.
To register for the weekend or for more information, visit
www.HelpOurMarriage.com or call 1-800-470-2230.

SUNDAY MORNING PRAYER
Please remember that we gather to praise God by praying the
Divine Office on Sunday mornings at St. Mary’s. Throughout the
world, priests, deacons, religious communities, seminaries and
parishes gather at different times of the day to bless the Lord.
This short service includes a hymn, psalms and intercessory
prayers. It begins at 7:30 a.m. and lasts about 20 minutes. About
12-15 people attend regularly so you won’t be alone if you come.
The prayer booklet is provided.
ATTACKS ON GOD
Brunei, Somalia ban Christmas celebrations
In recent days, the governments of two predominantly Muslim
nations warned their citizens not to celebrate Christmas,
declaring that all events related to Christmas and New Year
celebrations are contrary to Islamic culture and could damage the
faith of the Muslim community. Muslims who send Christmas
greetings, use Christmas trees or lights, or otherwise take part in
Christmas celebrations face up to five years in prison.
ON THE BULLETIN COVER
Adoration of the Magi
The cover depicts a panel from a Roman sarcophagus, 4th
century from the cemetery of St. Agnes in Rome.

January 3, 2016
SAINT MARY PARISH
My brothers and sisters in Christ,
I pray that you are enjoying the Christmas Season. May you be
richer because of these days rather than poorer. I pray that this
Jubilee Year of Mercy truly be a time of Spiritual renewal and
unity for us… so that all may live in peace. We are looking
forward to this new year in the parish. The After School Program
and catechetical sessions are starting up again. If you would like
to enroll your children in the After School Program please
contact their office at 781-577-2262.
We are beginning classes at the end of this month for adults
who wish to receive the sacraments of First Communion and
Confirmation. If you, or anyone you know, would like to take
these classes and be prepared to receive these sacraments in the
Spring please speak to one of the priests or the Deacon.
We still plan on hosting the Wedding at Cana in the Fall. If this
is the year for you to have your marriage blessed in the Church,
we would be happy to help you in a way that minimizes all the
costs and preparations. We have also started a monthly couples
meeting that brings married couples together to study the
corporal and spiritual works of mercy. Please let me know if you
would like to join us.
This year we want to build up and strengthen the Knights of
Columbus Council that was just restarted last year. Last year, we
worked on getting members to join. This year we want to build
on that good work while providing opportunities to help the men
grow in spirit and fraternity.
To do all this, we will continue to look to the saint
recommended to us by Pope Francis in his recent encyclical –
Saint Francis of Assisi. May this new year be a year of grace and
mercy for you, our Church and the world. – Father Michael
ANOINTING OF THE SICK
This week we offer Masses at St. Mary’s with the anointing of
the sick. They are scheduled for this Monday, January 4 at 12:10
p.m. and Wednesday, January 6 at 7:00 p.m. in the chapel.
Anyone in need of physical healing is encouraged to come
forward for the anointing. Anyone who is physically healthy is
encouraged to come and pray for the sick.
FIRST SATURDAY OF MONTH ROSARY
Every First Saturday of the month, the rosary is prayed to Our
Lady of Fatima. If you ever have free time and would like to
start the weekend with prayer, please join them. It takes place at
10 a.m. in the Church.
HAITI CHURCH REBUILDING
Many thanks for continuing to support the rebuilding efforts for
St. Peter’s Church Haiti. We sent some money down to help the
parish this month. The parish also received a new pastor
recently. He will have been the third pastor for their parish since

Today we celebrate the feast of the Epiphany, where the Magi
find the newborn king and offer him gifts of gold, frankincense
and myrrh.
In the spirit of the Magi, please put your gift in the St. Vincent
de Paul Poor Box so that comfort and peace can once again be
given to a newborn child.
O Lord, bring light to the darkness as we search for you, Let
your light shine upon us. As the Magi bowed down in homage,
may you be the absolute center of our lives. May we, like the
Magi, offer you our gifts each day, as we discover you in the
lives of the poor. Amen.

READINGS FOR THIS WEEKEND
The Epiphany of the Lord / C 497
Excerpts from the
HOMILY OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS
Vatican Basilica, 6 January 2015
Epiphany of the Lord
. . .
The star which led them on the journey allows them to enter into the mystery. Led by the Spirit, they come to realize
that God’s criteria are quite different from those of men, that God does not manifest himself in the power of this world,
but speaks to us in the humbleness of his love. God’s love is great. God’s love is powerful. But the love of God is
humble, yes, very humble. The wise men are thus models of conversion to the true faith, since they believed more in
the goodness of God than in the apparent splendour of power.
. . .
The wise men entered into the mystery. They passed from human calculations to the mystery: this was their
conversion. And our own? Let us ask the Lord to let us undergo that same journey of conversion experienced by the
wise men. Let us ask him to protect us and to set us free from the temptations which hide the star. To let us always feel
the troubling question: “Where is the star?”, whenever – amid the deceptions of this world – we lose sight of it. To let
us know ever anew God’s mystery, and not to be scandalized by the “sign”, that sign spoken of by the angels, which
points to “a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger” (Lk 2:12), and to have the humility to ask the
Mother, our Mother, to show him to us. To find the courage to be liberated from our illusions, our presumptions, our
“lights”, and to seek this courage in the humility of faith and in this way to encounter the Light, Lumen, like the holy
wise men. May we enter into the mystery. So may it be. Amen.

The Epiphany of the Lord
January 3, 2016
Queridos hermanos en Cristo:
¡Feliz Año Nuevo 2016! Hay un dicho popular que dice: “Lo
que mal empieza mal acaba”, a mí me gusta ser optimista, aún en
momentos difíciles y me gustaría cambiar el dicho por: “Lo que
bién empieza , termina bién”. Y para empezar bién hay que programar, aunque hay imponderables, cosas inesperadas para las
que hay que prepararnos. ¿Qué va a hacer usted éste año?
¿Cuáles son sus metas para el 2016? Permítame ayudarle… Este
es el año de la Misericordia, aprenda y practique las obras de
Misericordia Espirituales y Corporales, vaya a confesarse, prepárese para recibir la comunión en estado de Gracia. Reconcíliese
con quien tenga que reconciliarse, busque la Paz y harmonía en
el hogar, en el trabajo, en la Iglesia etc. Dé buen ejemplo que sus
familiares y amigos se sientan felices a su lado, que encuentren
en usted un apoyo y consuelo.
Busque a Jesucristo, aprenda más sobre El y délo a conocer.
Vaya a Misa los domingos y fiestas de guardar y lleve a su familia. Haga ejercicio, recuerde que hay Mente Sana en Cuerpo
Sano. Siga practicando el ayuno, la oración y ayude a los pobres.
Haga planes y evalúelos cada mes. Ayude a la Iglesia y a su
familia en todo lo que pueda y va a ver que éste va a ser un buen
Año que si empieza con Dios y con optimismo va a comenzar
bien y seguramente también va a terminar bién.
– P. Agustin

HOMILÍA DEL SANTO PADRE FRANCISCO
Basílica Vaticana, 6 de Enero 2015
La Solemnidad de la Epifanía del Señor
. . .
Esta estrella que les ha acompañado durante el camino los introduce en el misterio. Guiados por el Espíritu, reconocen que los criterios de Dios son muy distintos a los de los hombres, que Dios no se manifiesta en la potencia de este mundo, sino que nos habla en la humildad de su amor. El amor de Dios es
grande, sí. El amor de Dios es potente, sí. Pero el amor de Dios es humilde, muy humilde. De ese modo,
los Magos son modelos de conversión a la verdadera fe porque han dado más crédito a la bondad de Dios
que al aparente esplendor del poder.
. . .
Los Magos han entrado en el misterio. Han pasado de los cálculos humanos al misterio, y éste es el
camino de su conversión. ¿Y la nuestra? Pidamos al Señor que nos conceda vivir el mismo camino de
conversión que vivieron los Magos. Que nos defienda y nos libre de las tentaciones que oscurecen la estrella. Que tengamos siempre la inquietud de preguntarnos, ¿dónde está la estrella?, cuando, en medio de
los engaños mundanos, la hayamos perdido de vista. Que aprendamos a conocer siempre de nuevo el misterio de Dios, que no nos escandalicemos de la “señal”, de la indicación, de aquella señal anunciada por
los ángeles: «un niño envuelto en pañales y acostado en un pesebre» (Lc 2,12), y que tengamos la humildad de pedir a la Madre, a nuestra Madre, que nos lo muestre. Que encontremos el valor de liberarnos
de nuestras ilusiones, de nuestras presunciones, de nuestras “luces”, y que busquemos este valor en la humildad de la fe y así encontremos la Luz, Lumen, como han hecho los santos Magos. Que podamos entrar
en el misterio. Que así sea.
