Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe 

(November 24th 2019)

  Today as a Church, we conclude our liturgical year and celebrate the Feast of Christ the King. The Gospel we proclaim shows the great mystery of our faith: In the moment of his crucifixion, Jesus is shown to be King and Savior of all.

Luke's Gospel has been loaded with surprises: the poor are rich, sinners find salvation, the Kingdom of God is found in our midst. Here we see the greatest surprise of all. We are confronted with the crucified Jesus, whom faith tells us is King and Savior of all.   The irony is that the inscription placed on the cross, perhaps in mockery, contains the profoundest of truth. As the leaders jeer, the thief crucified by his side recognizes Jesus as Messiah and King, and finds salvation.

  Jesus is King, but not the kind of king we might have imagined or expected. His kingship was hidden from many of his contemporaries, but those who had the eyes of faith were able to see. As modern disciples of Jesus, we, too, struggle at times to recognize Jesus as King. Today's Gospel invites us to make our own judgment. With eyes of faith, we, too, recognize that Jesus, the crucified One, is indeed King and Savior of all.

Prayer to Saints Peter and Paul / Oración a San Pedro y San Pablo

Father in heaven, the light of Your revelation brought Peter and Paul the gift of faith in Jesus Your Son. Through their prayers may we always give thanks for Your life given us in Christ Jesus and for having been enriched by Him in all knowledge and love. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of    the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


Señor, Dios nuestro, tú que entregaste a la Iglesia las primicias de tu obra de salvación, mediante el ministerio apostólico de San Pedro y  San Pablo, concédenos, por su intercesión y sus méritos, los auxilios necesarios   para nuestra salvación. Por nuestro Señor Jesucristo, tu Hijo, que vive y reina contigo en la unidad del Espíritu Santo y es Dios por los siglos de los siglos. Amén

Building active listening skills with children

Building your active listening skills with the children in your life can help you communicate more effectively with them, and it can also clue you in to any suspicious or potentially dangerous relationships in their lives. Active listening lets the speaker know that you have heard, understood, and valued what he or she said. Often, children don’t feel this way, but with a few easy tactics, you can change that, building a relationship of trust and respect. As an active listener, be sure to make eye contact while the child is speaking. Ask follow-up questions and check in to make sure you both understand what’s being said. Avoid “yes or no” questions and instead ask open-ended questions that will keep the conversation going. For more tips, get a copy of the VIRTUS® article “Children are to be Seen and Heard,” at

Desarrollando habilidades para escuchar activamente a los niños

El desarrollar sus habilidades para escuchar activamente a los niños en su vida puede ayudarle a comunicarse con ellos con mayor efectividad, y además puede ayudarle a descubrir cualquier relación sospechosa o potencialmente dañina en sus vidas. El escuchar activamente le deja saber al orador que usted le ha escuchado, entendido y que usted valora lo que él o ella le ha dicho. Con frecuencia, los niños no se sienten escuchados, pero con unas pocas tácticas fáciles usted puede cambiar eso, construyendo relaciones de confianza y de respeto. Como un escuchador activo, asegúrese de ver al niño a los ojos mientras él o ella estén hablando. Haga preguntas de seguimiento y en ocasiones repita para asegurarse que ambos entienden lo que se ha dicho. Evite hacer preguntas cuyas respuestas solo sean “sí o no” y en su lugar haga preguntas de las que se puedan obtener respuestas amplias para que siga la conversación.
