THE PARISH AS ONE BODY “If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole body were hearing, where would the sense of smell be? But as it is, God placed the parts, each one of them, in the body as he intended… The eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I do not need you,’ nor again the head to the feet, ‘I do not need you.’ Indeed, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are all the more necessary . Now you are Christ’s body, and individually parts of it. “ (1 Cor. 12:17-25)
The Seven Essen al Elements of Parish Life constantly interrelate, each nurturing and suppor ng the other with the communal celebra on of Sunday Eucharist at the center.

Bad people don’t come to confession. Only the good do. John the Baptist preached repentance. We might think he meant tabulating sins, making temporary amends. No. He meant metanoia: conversion, total turnabout. Let's be humble enough, John asks, to acknowledge that for some time now our lives have been moving along a very pleasurable--but self-deceptive--road. The only long-run solution is to admit that basic mistake, and turn 180 degrees around--back to the first wrong turn. Maybe with a small case “p” become a prophet. Teach others how to “know, love, and serve God in this world so that we will be happy with Him in the next.” Encounter the Lord in Word and Sacrament, develop a relationship with Jesus, spend time with him during Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament the first Tuesday of each month in our parish church, and carve out time in any regular day for prayer. Finally, energized by your relationship with Jesus bring new hope to those whom you encounter. Teach others by your belief to
“prepare the way of the Lord…and see the salvation of God.”
As a converted Christian, you could be a prophet. Who was John the Baptist? Just one man. Who was Mother Teresa? Just one woman. Oh, granted they were a man and woman of extraordinary heart. But God can do wonders with men and women of ordi-nary hearts--as long as they're not afraid, as long as they keep their eyes on the steadfastness of the One calling and not on the fragil-ity of the one called. I think the confidence of Christianity responds to a call, like Isaiah’s call: “Whom shall I send? Who will be our messenger?” And Isaiah answers very simply: “Here I am. Send me.” Advent is a time for reflecting on our lives and going to confession. Following confession, conversion, and becoming a better witness to the Gospel; “This is the time of salvation, reform your life and believe.” This year, our deanery of parishes will share communal penance times. Saturday confession time from 3:30 to 4:30PM will continue in our parish church. Communal penance times will begin at 7:00PM in the following churches of Deanery III.

SACRAMENT OF PENANCE
Each year, through the generosity of Catholics across the na-tion, nearly 34,000 senior sisters, brothers, and religious order priests benefit from the Retired Fund For Religious collection. Despite this collection, many religious communities struggle to care for their older members as health-care costs skyrocket and the number of those needing care grows. Please continue to support this collection, which is next weekend December 12th and 13th. Thank you!
The Sacrament of Penance offers a new possibility to convert oneself to the Gospel and recover grace that was lost by sin.
Who must go to confession? Each of the faithful is bound by an obligation to confess mortal, serious sins, at least once a year. Confession of everyday faults (venial sins) is strongly recom-mended by the Church.
Mortal sin: a sin whose object is grave matter and is committed with full knowledge and deliberate consent.
Venial sin: a less serious wrong doing, disobeys the moral law.
Begin with an examination of your conscience. Before you enter the confessional, prayerfully reflect on your words and deeds since the last time you received the sacrament. Knowing the Ten Commandments and the Gospel of Jesus, when have you “missed the mark?” When have you done a do not do – or when you could have practiced a virtue or performed an act of mercy but did not? When did you misuse God’s creation? What have you done that gives you guilt?
Tell these faults to the priest. Listen to any advice, counsel, or guidance that the priest might give you.
Receive your penance, the act that you must do to repair any harm your sin has caused and to re-establish yourself as a disci-ple of Christ.
Receive the absolution of your sins, be reconciled with God, the Father of mercies, and the Church as the priest prays the prayer of absolution for you.
Be prepared to pray an Act of Contrition: these or similar words: My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly in-tend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior Jesus Christ suf-fered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy. Amen.
As you receive the grace of absolution and pray to “avoid what-ever leads to sin” recover a new relationship with the Lord and reform your life.

Questions: Cindy Jason
PARENTS OF PRE-SCHOOL AND OLDER CHILDREN IN THE PARISH:
NEED TIME FOR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING? GIFT WRAPPING?
The Orange Catholic Foundation wishes to invite parishioners and friends of the Diocese of Orange to consider including their par-ish, school and other Catholic charitable organizations in their estate plans in a variety of ways.
Here are a few simple but meaningful ways to participate:
Outright Gifts A gift of cash or other assets such as appreciated securities (any amount) will help build the Endowment Fund immediately.
Wills A gift of a percentage of estate assets, a specific asset, or a specific sum of money to your St. Juliana Falconieri Church / School / ministry in your will.
Life Insurance Complete a “change of beneficiary form” for an existing policy.
Sample language: “X percent to my heirs (list names) and X percentage to the Orange Catholic Foundation, located in Garden Grove California tax id # 33-0934571 for the benefit of St.Juliana Falconieri Parish, School, ministry,y etc. (optional).” Transfer ownership of an existing policy or purchase a new policy and make the Orange Catholic Foundation the owner and irrevo-cable beneficiary for the benefit of St. Juliana Falconieri Parish, School, ministry etc.
Retirement Funds Complete a “change of beneficiary form” for an IRA or other retirement fund.
Sample language: “X percent to my heirs (list names) and X percent to the Orange Catholic Foundation, located in Garden Grove California tax id # 33-0934571 for the benefit of St. Juliana Parish, school, ministry, etc. (optional).”

Consider Advent a time to begin this new tradition.
INVITATION TO PRAYER
Join Father Sy Nguyen every Thursday at the Hour of Great Mercy 3:00 p.m. starting January 7, 2016 in offering prayers of repara-tion for ourselves, for our nation, and for the whole world. “Please ... if you are honestly concerned about making Christ known to literally every creature - give God one hour a day. You are needed in God's prayer-force to prepare for work in the totally unevan-gelized areas of the world. Do you love them enough to pray? Will you 'pay the price' of spiritual battle for one hour daily? Christ asked: 'What, could you not watch with Me one hour?'”- Jack McAllister’s pamphlet copy to Venerable Fulton J. Sheen; “That the necessity of EXPIATION or REPARATION is especially urgent today must be evident to everyone who considers the present plight of the world, ‘seated in wickedness’ (John, v.9)…” – Pope Pius XI-Encyclical ‘Miserentissimus’ ADDRESS: Saint Martin de Porres Church, 19767 Yorba Linda Blvd., Yorba Linda CONTACT: Front Office, (714) 970-2771
