Thanksgiving Greeting from the Catholic Bishops of Washington State

(haz clic aqui para leer en español)

As the people of the state of Washington prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, we have many reasons to be thankful. We live in one of the most beautiful regions in the most prosperous nation in the world, and it is fitting that we give thanks for our abundant blessings.

As Christians and people of good will gather with family and friends during this national holiday, it is also an appropriate occasion to turn our gaze toward those who are experiencing poverty, hunger and homelessness. As Catholic bishops serving every community in our state, we are especially grateful to Pope Francis for establishing the first World Day of the Poor this Sunday, November 19. His statement, and his Share the Journey initiative launched this past September, help us to widen the lens of our hearts in this season of thanksgiving, and to focus our attention on those among us – our brothers and sisters – who do not fully share in our state’s many blessings.

With our national holiday of Thanksgiving and the first-ever World Day of the Poor approaching, we Catholic Bishops of Washington State want to amplify the call for prayer and action we made in our letter on poverty (Who Is My Neighbor?) one year ago. In communion with our Holy Father, we urge everyone in our great state to mark this Thanksgiving holiday with “moments of encounter and friendship, solidarity and concrete assistance” with people living in poverty. Through God’s grace, these encounters will transform not only the lives of those we meet, but our lives as well, for we who enjoy many material blessings are called to share them in solidarity with our sisters and brothers.

A blessed Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones!

  The US Conference of Catholics Bishops (USCCB) is closely examining major tax proposals in Congress, including the version approved today in the US House. While lauding certain elements of the proposals, the US Bishops judge key provisions to be unacceptable, saying in a statement "this proposal appears to be the first federal income tax modification in American history that will raise income taxes on the working poor while simultaneously providing a large tax cut to the wealthy. This is simply unconscionable."

The USCCB is urging Congress to take more time to better understand these bills, and to examine the tax legislation in light of the moral principles they recently outlined for this effort:

  • Caring for the poor;
  • Strengthening families;
  • Maintaining progressivity of the tax code;
  • Raising adequate revenue for the common good;
  • Avoiding cuts to poverty programs to finance tax reform; and
  • Incentivizing charitable giving and development.
To read more about the USCCB's assessment of the federal tax proposals, refer to the October 25 and November 9 letters to Congress.
 

     
  The Washington State Legislature failed to pass the capital budget earlier this year. The budget includes $106.3 million for the Housing Trust Fund. A portion of this money is needed to help launch several new permanent supportive housing projects in Washington State that will be operated by the Catholic Charities agencies of the three dioceses. These projects will provide housing for scores of low income and homeless families and individuals in our state. Funds for expansion of mental health facilities are also included in the capital budget. The budget has been held up due to a separate legislative dispute concerning water rights stemming from the Hirst decision of the State Supreme Court.

Take Action - Please contact your State Representatives and Senators and encourage them to find a solution on the water rights issue and pass the capital budget. Call the Legislative Hotline at 1-800-562-6000. Since the Legislature is not in session, the Hotline is open from 8:00 a.m. to Noon and from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
 

     
 

Tomorrow, November 17, marks the one year anniversary of the WSCC pastoral letter, Who Is My Neighbor? To mark the anniversary, the Bishops of Washington State will release a statement that renews their call for prayer and action. Look for it tomorrow in your inbox.

 

     
 
 
This Sunday, November 19, has been designated the first World Day of the Poor by Pope Francis. The Pope asks all of us to reflect on Jesus' great love for those who experience poverty, to encounter our brothers and sisters in need, and to work alongside them to put faith into action. To access the Pope's message for this first World Day of the Poor, visit the Vatican website.
 

     
 
 
Supported by USCCB, Human Life Action (HLA) is urging Catholics to contact their members of Congress and advocate for the protection of life and freedom of conscience. The Conscience Protection Act (CPA) is much-needed, common-sense legislation which will clarify federal law and ensure that those who provide health care and health coverage can do so without being forced by government to help destroy innocent unborn children.

Take Action - The US House incorporated the Conscience Protection Act of 2017 (CPA) into the Fiscal Year 2018 Labor, HHS Appropriations bill. The Senate should be urged to include the CPA in the final funding legislation of the year jointly approved by House and Senate. Please take a moment to let your representatives in Congress know that we expect them to protect our most cherished liberties. To take action, go to the HLA Action Center.
 

     
 

In his address to an international symposium on nuclear disarmament at the Vatican, Pope Francis decried the cost of nuclear arsenals, the "catastrophic humanitarian and environmental effects" if they are ever used, and "the risk of an accidental detonation ..." The Pope declared that "the threat of their use, as well as their very possession, is to be firmly condemned."

Pope Francis also said that nuclear weapons "exist in the service of a mentality of fear that affects not only the parties in conflict but the entire human race. ... They cannot constitute the basis for peaceful coexistence between members of the human family, which must rather be inspired by an ethics of solidarity." To read the entire address, visit the Vatican website.
 

     
  In the aftermath of the recent and horrific attacks in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, Bishop Frank J. Dewane of Venice, Florida, Chairman of the USCCB's Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, urged national leaders to engage in a true debate about solutions to gun violence. "For many years, the Catholic bishops of the United States have been urging our leaders to explore and adopt reasonable policies to help curb gun violence. ... The USCCB continues to urge a total ban on assault weapons ... While acknowledging the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and related jurisprudence, we live in a fallen world with daily advances in modern technology."  The complete statement is available on the USCCB website.

The SHROUD OF TURIN TALK AND EXACT FULL SIZE REPLICA is coming to Holy Family Catholic Church in Yakima at 5315 Tieton Drive on Sunday, December 3, 2017 at 2:30 p.m.  All people are welcome.

Is this the actual burial cloth of Jesus Christ or is it a sophisticated fake produced in the Middle Ages as Carbon 14 dating seems to indicate?

The Shroud of Turin is believed by many to be the actual burial cloth of Jesus Christ and the evidence points in this direction.

Considered one of the greatest mysteries of our time, the Shroud of Turin continues to amaze and baffle scientists, doctors, historians, artists and theologians.  Scientists cannot explain the source of the image which contains photographic and 3-D properties on a cloth centuries old. CNN, the History & Discovery channels and National Geographic have all taken their turn at trying to explain it. Bill Wingard, a speaker for the Shroud and mentored by two of its principal scientists who have extensively examined the Shroud, will present the history, the science and the Passion along with the case for authenticity, and you can be the judge.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their cameras. Teens and up are especially encouraged to come.   There will be a free-will offering.  For more information, call 509-697-4633.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 IS THIS THE BURIAL CLOTH OF JESUS CHRIST? 

IS THIS HIS FACE ?

 

 

 

 

 

Let us pray that Christians in Asia may promote dialogue, peace, and mutual understanding, especially with those of other religions.

Pope Francis - November 2017

The most striking feature of Asia is the variety of its peoples who are heirs to ancient cultures, religions and traditions.
On this continent, where the Church is a minority, the challenges are intense.
We must promote dialogue among religions and cultures.
Dialogue is an essential part of the mission of the Church in Asia.
Let us pray that Christians in Asia may promote dialogue, peace, and mutual understanding, especially with those of other religions.

 


 

 

 

 

Pidamos por los cristianos de Asia, para que favorezcan el diálogo, la paz y la comprensión mutua, especialmente con aquellos que pertenecen a otras religiones.

Papa Francisco - Noviembre 2017

Lo que más me impresiona de Asia es la variedad de sus poblaciones, herederas de antiguas culturas, religiones y tradiciones.
En este continente donde la Iglesia es una minoría, el desafío es apasionante.
Debemos promover el diálogo entre religiones y culturas.
El diálogo es una parte esencial de la misión de la Iglesia en Asia.
Pidamos por los cristianos de Asia, para que favorezcan el diálogo, la paz y la comprensión mutua, especialmente con aquellos que pertenecen a otras religiones.

 


 

 

Dear Friends,

We are here in Rome on pilgrimage and are with the Holy Father, Pope Francis, at his Wednesday general audience. By happy coincidence today marks the start of the Holy Father's global campaign, "Share the Journey," where he invites us to walk with migrants refugees and – in his Spanish comments – "campesinos" – something quite particular to our Diocese of Yakima. Today's kickoff points to a Week of Prayer and Action October 7-13. For an overview of the campaign, including personal stories, click here.  For ideas and resources for Catholic leaders planning events for the week, click here.  For a parish toolkit put together by Catholic Relief Services, click here. For ideas for social media, click here. Para recursos en español, haz click aquí.

Here in the Diocese of Yakima we are uniquely positioned to share the journey as Spanish and English speakers forming a single Church witness. Let's "Share the Journey" with each other – especially the migrants and undocumented as well as those young people impacted by DACA. Many prayers.

+Bishop Joseph Tyson

 

 

 

Dear Friends:

Fathers Dan and Peter Steele have been working diligently for a couple of years on a video project about seminary life. We showed this video to the high-school-aged men during this August's Quo Vadis event. 

At Quo Vadis we try to help the high school men reflect on their lives and their call.  Marriage is a holy and noble call and we assume that most of the men who come to us will sense a call to marriage.  But since all the men know something about marriage and family life with its blessings and struggles at Quo Vadis we try to give the men a sense of fraternity through our common prayer – the Liturgy of the Hours – as well as daily Mass and exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.

Of course we do "Capture the Flag," Soccer and other activities as well in order to give men a sense of fraternity in Christ.

I hope you enjoy this great video. It gives a sense of the seminary life and seminary formation. It provides clues about how we assist our men to fall in love with the Church as their spouse and how they become open to spiritual growth, human formation, academic inquiry and pastoral skills all of which contribute to the formation of future priests.  

My thanks to Fathers Dan and Peter Steele for their great fraternity as well as the long hours of production involved in this film.  

Please pass the video along to others! Please pray for the 70 men who came to Quo Vadis here in the Diocese of Yakima as well!

Blessings!

Most Rev. Joseph J. Tyson

Bishop of Yakima

 

 

 

 

MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS 
FOR THE 
 104th WORLD DAY OF MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES 2018

 

Dear brothers and sisters!

“You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God” (Leviticus 19:34).

Throughout the first years of my pontificate, I have repeatedly expressed my particular concern for the lamentable situation of many migrants and refugees fleeing from war, persecution, natural disasters and poverty. This situation is undoubtedly a “sign of the times” which I have tried to interpret, with the help of the Holy Spirit, ever since my visit to Lampedusa on 8 July 2013. When I instituted the new Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, I wanted a particular section – under my personal direction for the time being – to express the Church’s concern for migrants, displaced people, refugees and victims of human trafficking.

Every stranger who knocks at our door is an opportunity for an encounter with Jesus Christ, who identifies with the welcomed and rejected strangers of every age (Matthew 25:35-43). The Lord entrusts to the Church’s motherly love every person forced to leave their homeland in search of a better future.[1] This solidarity must be concretely expressed at every stage of the migratory experience – from departure through journey to arrival and return. This is a great responsibility, which the Church intends to share with all believers and men and women of good will, who are called to respond to the many challenges of contemporary migration with generosity, promptness, wisdom and foresight, each according to their own abilities.

In this regard, I wish to reaffirm that “our shared response may be articulated by four verbs: to welcome, to protect, to promote and to integrate”.[2]

Considering the current situation, welcoming means, above all, offering broader options for migrants and refugees to enter destination countries safely and legally. This calls for a concrete commitment to increase and simplify the process for granting humanitarian visas and for reunifying families. At the same time, I hope that a greater number of countries will adopt private and community sponsorship programmes, and open humanitarian corridors for particularly vulnerable refugees. Furthermore, special temporary visas should be granted to people fleeing conflicts in neighbouring countries. Collective and arbitrary expulsions of migrants and refugees are not suitable solutions, particularly where people are returned to countries which cannot guarantee respect for human dignity and fundamental rights.[3] Once again, I want to emphasise the importance of offering migrants and refugees adequate and dignified initial accommodation. “More widespread programmes of welcome, already initiated in different places, seem to favour a personal encounter and allow for greater quality of service and increased guarantees of success”.[4] The principle of the centrality of the human person, firmly stated by my beloved Predecessor, Benedict XVI,[5] obliges us to always prioritise personal safety over national security. It is necessary, therefore, to ensure that agents in charge of border control are properly trained. The situation of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees requires that they be guaranteed personal safety and access to basic services. For the sake of the fundamental dignity of every human person, we must strive to find alternative solutions to detention for those who enter a country without authorisation.[6]

The second verb – protecting – may be understood as a series of steps intended to defend the rights and dignity of migrants and refugees, independent of their legal status.[7] Such protection begins in the country of origin, and consists in offering reliable and verified information before departure, and in providing safety from illegal recruitment practices.[8] This must be ongoing, as far as possible, in the country of migration, guaranteeing them adequate consular assistance, the right to personally retain their documents of identification at all times, fair access to justice, the possibility of opening a personal bank account, and a minimum sufficient to live on. When duly recognised and valued, the potential and skills of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees are a true resource for the communities that welcome them.[9] This is why I hope that, in countries of arrival, migrants may be offered freedom of movement, work opportunities, and access to means of communication, out of respect for their dignity. For those who decide to return to their homeland, I want to emphasise the need to develop social and professional reintegration programmes. The International Convention on the Rights of the Child provides a universal legal basis for the protection of underage migrants. They must be spared any form of detention related to migratory status, and must be guaranteed regular access to primary and secondary education. Equally, when they come of age they must be guaranteed the right to remain and to enjoy the possibility of continuing their studies. Temporary custody or foster programmes should be provided for unaccompanied minors and minors separated from their families.[10] The universal right to a nationality should be recognised and duly certified for all children at birth. The statelessness which migrants and refugees sometimes fall into can easily be avoided with the adoption of “nationality legislation that is in conformity with the fundamental principles of international law”.[11] Migratory status should not limit access to national healthcare and pension plans, nor affect the transfer of their contributions if repatriated.

Promoting essentially means a determined effort to ensure that all migrants and refugees – as well as the communities which welcome them – are empowered to achieve their potential as human beings, in all the dimensions which constitute the humanity intended by the Creator.[12] Among these, we must recognize the true value of the religious dimension, ensuring to all foreigners in any country the freedom of religious belief and practice. Many migrants and refugees have abilities which must be appropriately recognised and valued. Since “work, by its nature, is meant to unite peoples”,[13] I encourage a determined effort to promote the social and professional inclusion of migrants and refugees, guaranteeing for all – including those seeking asylum – the possibility of employment, language instruction and active citizenship, together with sufficient information provided in their mother tongue. In the case of underage migrants, their involvement in labour must be regulated to prevent exploitation and risks to their normal growth and development. In 2006, Benedict XVI highlighted how, in the context of migration, the family is “a place and resource of the culture of life and a factor for the integration of values”.[14] The family’s integrity must always be promoted, supporting family reunifications – including grandparents, grandchildren and siblings – independent of financial requirements. Migrants, asylum seekers and refugees with disabilities must be granted greater assistance and support. While I recognize the praiseworthy efforts, thus far, of many countries, in terms of international cooperation and humanitarian aid, I hope that the offering of this assistance will take into account the needs (such as medical and social assistance, as well as education) of developing countries which receive a significant influx of migrants and refugees. I also hope that local communities which are vulnerable and facing material hardship, will be included among aid beneficiaries.[15]

The final verb – integrating – concerns the opportunities for intercultural enrichment brought about by the presence of migrants and refugees. Integration is not “an assimilation that leads migrants to suppress or to forget their own cultural identity. Rather, contact with others leads to discovering their ‘secret’, to being open to them in order to welcome their valid aspects and thus contribute to knowing each one better. This is a lengthy process that aims to shape societies and cultures, making them more and more a reflection of the multi-faceted gifts of God to human beings”.[16] This process can be accelerated by granting citizenship free of financial or linguistic requirements, and by offering the possibility of special legalisation to migrants who can claim a long period of residence in the country of arrival. I reiterate the need to foster a culture of encounter in every way possible – by increasing opportunities for intercultural exchange, documenting and disseminating best practices of integration, and developing programmes to prepare local communities for integration processes. I wish to stress the special case of people forced to abandon their country of arrival due to a humanitarian crisis. These people must be ensured adequate assistance for repatriation and effective reintegration programmes in their home countries.

In line with her pastoral tradition, the Church is ready to commit herself to realising all the initiatives proposed above. Yet in order to achieve the desired outcome, the contribution of political communities and civil societies is indispensable, each according to their own responsibilities.

At the United Nations Summit held in New York on 29 September 2016, world leaders clearly expressed their desire to take decisive action in support of migrants and refugees to save their lives and protect their rights, sharing this responsibility on a global level. To this end, the states committed themselves to drafting and approving, before the end of 2018, two Global Compacts, one for refugees and the other for migrants.

Dear brothers and sisters, in light of these processes currently underway, the coming months offer a unique opportunity to advocate and support the concrete actions which I have described with four verbs. I invite you, therefore, to use every occasion to share this message with all political and social actors involved (or who seek to be involved) in the process which will lead to the approval of the two Global Compacts.

Today, 15 August, we celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of Mary. The Holy Mother of God herself experienced the hardship of exile (Matthew 2:13-15), lovingly accompanied her Son’s journey to Calvary, and now shares eternally his glory. To her maternal intercession we entrust the hopes of all the world’s migrants and refugees and the aspirations of the communities which welcome them, so that, responding to the Lord’s supreme commandment, we may all learn to love the other, the stranger, as ourselves.
