MASS UPDATE - WEEK OF JUNE 1

We are working on the plan for St Bernardine of Siena.
Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Archbishop Jose Gomez dispenses all the Catholic faithful of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and all Catholics currently in the Archdiocese from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass until further notice.  

St. Bernardine of Siena will continue with TWO live streamed Masses on Saturdays at 5PM and Sundays at 10AM.

Masses are available at:

The Church and Parish Center continue to be closed. For any death situations, Anointing of the Sick is still being offered. Please contact the Parish Office at (818) 888-8200 and your call will be returned in a timely manner. You can also contact the office via email to parishoffice@stbernardine.org with any questions or concerns.

THE RICHNESS OF THE SPIRIT
Students, and most adults recalling their school days, are familiar with the phrase “compare and contrast” that shows up from time to time on tests.  Today we hear two 
different accounts of the giving of the Holy Spirit to the church.  Let’s contrast, then compare.  Luke’s account from Acts is filled with arresting details: the mighty wind from heaven, the tongues of flame, the miracle of different languages.  John’s account seems timid: fearful disciples, the wounded Christ, the expelling of breath from his risen body, not from the sky.  Our literal, modern minds wonder, which way it happened; our noisy culture probably makes us prefer the former.  But if we compare the two, we find that the dazzling richness of the Spirit fills both accounts.  For it is the very breath of the risen Christ, ascended to the sky in Luke, that appears to his disciples in John; and sends his followers forth to carry on his mission of forgiving sin and proclaiming the mighty acts of God.
