Palm Sunday of the Lord’s
Jubilee Year of Mercy
Misericordiae Vultus: The Face of Mercy is
Pope Francis’ official decree announcing
this Jubilee Year of Mercy. But Francis had
already declared that Jesus “has shown the
face of God’s mercy” back in 2013 on his
first Palm Sunday as pope. Francis
described Luke’s account of Jesus’
entrance into Jerusalem: “Crowds,
celebra ng, praise, blessing, peace: joy fills
the air. Jesus has awakened great hopes,
especially in the hearts of the simple, the
humble, the poor, the forgo en, those
who do not ma er in the eyes of the
world. He understands human sufferings . .
. has bent down to heal body and soul.”
Entering Jerusalem, Jesus looks at all of us
with love, Francis con nued, at our
sicknesses and sins. “A beau ful scene, full
of light—the light of the love of
Jesus” (Pope Francis, Palm Sunday homily,
March 24, 2013). May this Jubilee Year’s
Holy Week and Triduum make us Jesus’
own light-bearers and love-givers to all
who long to see the Face of Mercy.

As Benedict’s holiness grew, so did his fame, and people from the
surrounding area would come to him for prayer and advice. A
community of monks nearby asked him to become their abbot. He
agreed, but found their way of life to be disorganized and morally
ques onable. Benedict tried to enact reform, but this angered the
monks who tried to poison him. Legend has it that every a empt
to poison Benedict was thwarted by divine interven on. One
monk served him poisoned wine. As Benedict prayed a blessing
over the wine, the glass sha ered. Another presented him with a
loaf of poisoned bread. As Benedict prayed over this bread, a
raven swept in and plucked the bread from his hands.
Easter People – Those who Knew Jesus
A er Easter we will have a DVD and discussion series on the
various persons found in the Passion and Resurrec on Narra ves.
We will explore such people as Mary Magdalene, Peter, John,
Thomas and others from the viewpoint of scripture, later
hagiography (lives of the saints), and legends. In these individuals
who experience the death of Jesus, and were witnesses to his
Resurrec on, we may find similari es to our own spiritual
journeys. We will begin on Wednesday evening, April 6, in the
Ministry Center Library at 7:30 p.m.
A Biblical Walk through the Mass
Do you understand the meaning behind the parts of the Mass? In
his video-based study A Biblical Walk through the Mass, Dr.
Edward Sri explores the roots of the words and gestures we
experience at Mass and explains their profound significance. In
this study, you will come to know and understand the Mass as
never before, leading you to a richer, more frui ul worship
experience. We will begin on Monday, April 25, from 9:15 to 11
a.m. and con nuing every Monday for five weeks. For more
informa on or to register for the study, contact Mary at (714) 7093768 or Kathy via e-mail at [email protected]
What was happening in the Sixth Century?
Hermits and small communi es of monks had been prevalent in
the Eastern Church since St. Anthony in the second century, but
this lifestyle of dedica on to God was to take on new dimensions
and to grow significantly in the west during the sixth century.
A er the fall of Rome, western civiliza on began a decline in
educa on, government, law, morality, and culture. Some men and
women wishing to escape from the dissolute culture and to focus
on God began to leave the ci es and live as hermits or in loosely
organized monasteries. One of these men was Benedict of Nursia.
The exact date of Benedict’s birth is unknown, but is thought to be
around 480 B.C. He was born to a noble Roman family and
received excellent educa on; however discouraged by the
Soon, Benedict le these monks, and established twelve religious
houses in the area around Subiaco. Later, he moved further south
and established the great monastery of Monte Cassino on the
crest of a mountain that was to become a center of religious life in
Europe for centuries. He wrote a rule of life for them that
emphasized a balanced lifestyle of prayer, work, and study. The
monks would gather together at intervals throughout the day to
pray the Psalms, have work periods in the fields, kitchens, or
building and repairing structures, and have me that they were to
devote to study or wri ng. Benedict’s rule was regulated, but not
overly strict. He did allow the monks the occasional glass of wine,
and me for recrea on. Eventually, the Rule of St. Benedict, as it
came to be called, became the standard for monas c life
throughout the western church, and he is known as the Founder
of Western Monas cism.
St. Benedict had a twin sister named Scholas ca who is also a
saint. There is a story that a er a long separa on, St. Scholas ca
journeyed to visit her brother at his monastery. The two were
delighted to be reunited and spent the day engaged in
conversa on. As nigh all approached, Benedict told Scholas ca
that she would have to leave, as it was unseemly for a woman to
remain at the monastery overnight, and that he must return to his
cell. But Scholas ca wanted a longer visit with her brother and
pleaded with him to remain with her. He refused, so she began to
pray. Suddenly, a great storm arose with heavy rain and wind,
making it impossible for either of them to leave the guesthouse.
Benedict asked his sister, “What have you done?” She replied, “I
asked you and you would not listen, so I asked God and he did
listen.” The brother and sister con nued their conversa on
through the night. The next morning Scholas ca le to return to
her own religious community, and three days later, on February
10, 543, St. Scholas ca died. St. Benedict is said to have had a
vision of her soul leaving her body. He ordered his sister’s remains
to be brought to his monastery at Monte Cassino where he had
her buried in a tomb he had prepared for himself.
And, so, the history of the Church con nues.

Domingo de Ramos de la
Pasión del Señor
Año Jubilar de la Misericordia
Misericordiae Vultus: El rosto de la
Misericordia es el documento oficial (en
este caso una Bula papal) anunciando este
Año Jubilar de la Misericordia. Sin
embargo, el Domingo de Ramos de 2013,
el Papa Francisco había anunciado que
“Jesús ha mostrado el rostro de la
misericordia de Dios”. El Papa Francisco
describe la historia del Evangelio de Lucas
donde Jesús entra en Jerusalén así:
“Gen o, fiesta, alabanza, bendición, paz.
Se respira un clima de alegría. Jesús ha
despertado en el corazón tantas
esperanzas, sobre todo entre la gente
humilde, simple, pobre, olvidada, esa que
no cuenta a los ojos del mundo. Él ha
sabido comprender las miserias humanas,
ha mostrado el rostro de misericordia de
Dios y se ha inclinado para curar el cuerpo
y el alma”. El Papa Francisco sigue diciendo
que Jesús al entrar a Jerusalén mira a
todos con amor en nuestras debilidades y
pecados. “Es una bella escena, llena de luz
– la luz del amor de Jesús, de su corazón –,
de alegría, de fiesta” (Papa Francisco,
homilía del Domingo de Ramos, 24 de
marzo de 2013). ¡Qué la Semana Santa y
Triduo Pascual de este Año Jubilar de la
Misericordia nos hagan portadores de la
luz de Jesús y mensajeros de amor a todos
los que anhelan ver El rostro de la
