The desert and the parched land will exult;

the steppe will rejoice and bloom.

They will bloom with abundant flowers,

and rejoice with joyful song...

Archbishop José Gomez has announced a year of jubilee in commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the Mission of San Gabriel the Archangel

September 11, 2021 — September 10, 2022


Heavenly Father, we thank You for the gift of Your servant, St. Junípero Serra,

and for all the missionaries, native peoples, and immigrants

who established Mission San Gabriel Arcángel,

that Your Kingdom might extend to the ends of the earth.

Help us to walk in their footsteps as missionary disciples.

Guided by their example, may we be always faithful and courageous

in proclaiming the Gospel of Your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Father, look upon Your family here in Los Angeles with mercy.

Taught by the Word of Truth and fed with the Bread of Life,

may Your Church here always seek to do Your will,

and be the sign of Your love for all peoples, who are sons and daughters of God,

all of us loved and desired by You, and born for greater things.

Renew us and strengthen us, and cleanse our hearts.

By Your grace, may we follow Jesus with joy and holiness of life,

and together with Him build a new world of faith and a city of saints.

Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin of Guadalupe, Mother of the Americas,

may we continue always forward in the mission of St. Junípero Serra,

making Jesus Christ known to every heart in every nation.

We ask this, through Jesus Christ our Lord, in the unity of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Most Reverend José H. Gomez

Archbishop of Los Angeles

Laudato Sí

November 14, 2021

The Laudato Si’ Action Platform is a unique collaboration between the Vatican, an international coalition of Catholic organizations, and “all men and women of good will.” (LS 3) Taking a truly ground-up approach, it is rooted in the strengths and realities of communities around the world, empowering all to take “decisive action, here and now” as we journey towards a better future together. (LS 161)

Action is urgently needed. Our Creator called the human family to be the steward of creation, but we have neglected that call. Our hotter, dirtier, deader planet is driving up the risk of suffering. The most vulnerable suffer above all.

At this kairos moment, we are responding to the call for healing in our relationships with God, our neighbors, and the Earth itself. Through the Laudato Si’ Action Platform, we are walking the “path to renewal” together (LS 202).

A Prayer to Saint Joseph

Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

To you God entrusted his only Son; in you Mary placed her trust; with you Christ became man.

Blessed Joseph, to us too, show yourself a father, and guide us in the path of life.

Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage, and defend us from every evil.


Pope Francis
