Amigos, Estoy aquí en Colombia con la familia del Padre Jaime Chacon y vimos el encuentro del Papa Francisco con los jóvenes de Chile. Su pregunta clave a los jóvenes fue: ¿Que haría Jesús en tu lugar? ¡Esta es una pregunta clave para todos nosotros también! Disfruten este vídeo vinculado con esta pregunta clave y su visita a Chile. Pero lo que es más importante – no es conectar con el vídeo – pero conectar con Jesucristo. ¡Oren por el Papa Francisco también!

Bendiciónes y oraciones para ustedes,
+Obispo José Tyson

Friends, I am here in Colombia with the family of Father Jaime Chacón, watching Pope Francis' encounter with the youth of Chile. His key question with the youth was: "What would Jesus do in your place?" That is a key question for each us as as well! Enjoy this video from the Pope's visit to Chile. But what is most important is not to link with the video – but with Jesus Christ. Pray for the Holy Father as well!

Blessings and prayers for all,

Let us pray for all of them, so that Christians, and other religious minorities in Asian countries, may be able to practice their faith in full freedom.

Pope Francis - January 2018

In the vastly diversified cultural world of Asia, the Church faces many risks and her task is made more difficult by the fact of her being a minority.
These risks, these challenges are shared with other minority religious traditions, with whom we share a desire for wisdom, truth and holiness.
When we think of those who are persecuted for their religion, we go beyond differences of rite or confession : We place ourselves on the side of the men and women who fight to avoid renouncing their religious identity.
Let us pray for all of them, so that Christians, and other religious minorities in Asian countries, may be able to practice their faith in full freedom.

 


 

 

 

 

Pidamos por todos ellos para que, en los países asiáticos, los cristianos, como también las otras minorías religiosas, puedan vivir su fe con toda libertad.

Papa Francisco - Enero 2018

En el variado mundo cultural de Asia la Iglesia afronta muchos riesgos y su tarea resulta aún más difícil por el hecho de que constituye una minoría.
Estos riesgos, estos retos son compartidos con otras tradiciones religiosas minoritarias a las que nos une un deseo de sabiduría, verdad y santidad.
Cuando pensamos en los que son perseguidos por su religión, vamos más allá de las distinciones de rito o de confesión : nos ponemos del lado de los hombres y mujeres que luchan por no renunciar a su identidad religiosa.
Pidamos por todos ellos para que, en los países asiáticos, los cristianos, como también las otras minorías religiosas, puedan vivir su fe con toda libertad.

 


 

 

Follow the Star

Homily for Christmas Night 2017 10:30 at St. Paul Cathedral

Haz clic aquí para leer en español

Isaiah 9:1-6; Titus 2:11-14; Luke 2:1-14

Most Reverend Joseph J. Tyson, Bishop of Yakima

Peace be with you! “The Star.”  That’s the name of Sony Picture’s blockbuster currently showing in movie theaters. It attempts to tell the Christmas story from the viewpoint of the animals who speak with humor and wit. It’s a movie meant to make the Christmas message of hope a bit more approachable and entertaining.

Yet “The Star” is not the first to introduce animals into the Christmas message.  St. Francis of Assisi started the crèche tradition. His first biographer, St. Thomas of Celano noted how much Francis loved Christmas.  Yes, Easter is our central feast as Christians. But Celano noted, “More than any other feast [Francis] celebrated Christmas with an indescribable joy. He said that this was the feast of feasts, for on this day God became a little child and sucked milk like all human children. Francis embraced with great tenderness and devotion the pictures of the child Jesus and stammered words of tenderness, full of compassion, in the way children do. On his lips, the name of Jesus was as sweet as honey.”

St. Thomas of Celano goes on to note that Francis loved going to the small town of Greccio. He had a particularly favorite cell that was very remote and poor so that nothing could distract him from his contemplation of Jesus. For Christmas, Francis directed that an ox and an ass should be available and placed in his cave. He told a local nobleman named John: “I wish in full reality to awaken the remembrance of the child as he was born in Bethlehem and of all the hardship he had to endure in his childhood. I wish to see with my bodily eyes what it meant to lie in a manger and sleep on hay, between an ox and an ass.”

The image of the ox and the ass stems not simply from the pious imagination of St. Francis. Rather it grows from key image at the very beginning of the Book of Isaiah: “The ox knows its owner and the ass its master's crib; but Israel does not know, my people do not understand.” (Isaiah 1:3)

Somewhat parallel to Sony Picture’s “The Star,” medieval artwork gave the ox and the ass almost human faces and human attributes.  The great fourth-century St. Augustine suggested, “From the Jews came the horned ox ... and from the Gentiles the long-eared donkey.” It is Jesus – in the manger – who draws them together. Jesus who lays in a manger – from the French word to eat – and draws both Jews and Gentiles together as one people feeding them with himself.  This means that the manger of Christmas will become the altar of Easter. Jesus, who first draws close to the ox and the donkey in their feedbox, will – at the last supper – become spiritual nourishment for all people who believe.

Yet beneath the beauty of this crèche and between the words of Isaiah is a hidden indictment: The ox knows its owner.  The donkey is at the master’s crib.  But do we? Who are the ox and the donkey today?  Who are “My people” without understanding?

We can begin with Herod whose murderous drive and ambition blinded him to see Jesus. Then – according to scripture – “all of Jerusalem” who stood beside Herod. Add to the list “those in soft garments” (Matthew 11:8) in the words of St. Matthew’s Gospel – meaning those in high social positions. Matthew also adds to the list of those not at the crèche as the learned masters of scripture (Matthew 2:6).

Who were there? Moving out a little beyond the crèche with the ox and the donkey we begin to see those who recognize Jesus. First and foremost there is Mary and Joseph – undocumented wayfarers required to arrive at the city of David for the purposes of a census. Roman census takers were the primary way to determine taxation for the empire as well as military conscription for war. That was the point of the census documentation.  We also see the “shepherds of the field” – first century campesinos who would have been the poorest of the poor, living as we say “by hook and by crook.” Many were honest and poor. Some were livestock rustlers. Yet their very poverty and their very closeness to the animals of the field allowed them to see what the ox and ass see: Jesus, the newborn King of Kings.

As we gaze at this crèche we might want to ask: Where do we stand? Are we – like the Magi – still somewhere on the journey of faith, following the star in search of Jesus? Are we, like the shepherds of the field, very near precisely because we are lowly field workers? Are we like the ox and the ass, standing right beside the child providing warmth and closeness?

Or are we locked away in our palaces? Are we distant from Jesus because of our “soft clothes,” our social status, our wealth like those who stand with Herod and “all of Jerusalem?”

If we are honest with ourselves, might we answer, “all of the above?” If that’s the case then follow the star – not the “Star” of the Sony production – but the star of the Magi. Use your reason – your head as well as your heart – to discover what Jesus means for your life as well as the life of your family and your community.  Expand your life and explore your faith! Draw close to Jesus – as close as the ox and the ass! Discover in the beauty of this liturgy and the beauty of this night your deepest aspiration to allow God into your life and thus become the very best version of your self, the very best person God already created you to be.  Merry Christmas. Peace be with you!

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.
