This Week in Our Parish
From the Deacon
Following the Synod on the Family which was held in
Rome in recent times, the Pope issued an Apostolic
Exhortation on the outcome of the gathering of bishops.
Its title: “The Joy of Love” says much about the
bishop’s approach to trying to formulate answers for
some of the many challenges facing the human family in
our modern world.
We read: “The Joy of Love experienced by families is
also the joy of the church.” It was noted that even in the
difficult times we live in today and in the experience of
the many challenges facing couples as they try to form a
new family unit, “the desire to marry and form a family
remains vibrant, especially among young people, and
this is an inspiration for the Church.” (Art: 1) Working
with so many couples preparing for marriage as I do,
these words give all of us hope for the future of our
Church and society in general.
It is fitting as well that today being Mother’s Day, we
reflect for a moment on the words of this latest
document from Rome as its addresses the role of
mothers and their importance to the family: The Joy of
Love states:
“A society without mothers would be dehumanized, for
mothers are always, even in the worst of times,
witnesses to tenderness, dedication and moral strength.
Mothers often communicate the deepest meaning of
religious practice in the first prayers and acts of
devotion that their children learn…Without mothers,
not only would there be no new faithful, but the faith
itself would lose a good part of its simple and profound
warmth…Dear mothers: thank you! Thank you for
what you are in the family and for what you give to the
Church and the world.” (Art: 174)
We owe each of our mothers an unending debt of
gratitude. We thank God for each of you. My mother
went to heaven a number of years ago but I know that I
could not be the person that I am today had it not been
for her care and love which guided me through my
youth and teen years. I suspect that I gave her a
number of the gray hairs which adorned her head but
she never complained. Each strand was a badge of
honor given to her for her selfless acts of love shown to
me and my siblings.
May all of the women we honor today be held in the
highest esteem and may God continue to bless each one
of you today and always. Happy Mother’s Day!!
In Christ,
Deacon Frank

You are invited to attend Rosary at church before 6:15 am Mass
(Monday – Friday) or before some Sunday Masses.
Why pray the Rosary today? Certainly, to grow in holiness and
in one’s prayer life.
In May we especially honor Mary for many reasons:
Mary is Jesus mother.
She is the first and most perfect disciple.
She’s your mother.
She loves you more than you can ever imagine.
Not only is she Mother, but she also is Advocate, Helper,
Benefactress and Mediatrix.

Del Diácono
Después del Sínodo sobre La Familia que se llevó a cabo en
Roma en días recientes, El Papa emitió una Exhortación
Apostólica sobre el resultado de la junta de los Obispos. Su
título: “La Alegría del Amor” dice mucho acerca de la
forma en que los Obispos trataron de formular respuestas
para algunos de los muchos retos encarados por la familia
humana en nuestro mundo moderno.
(Día de las Madres)
--1:00 p.m. Misa en Español-Iglesia
Lunes 9 de Mayo-
Nosotros leemos: La alegría del amor que se vive en las
familias es también el júbilo de la Iglesia. Como han
indicado los Padres sinodales, a pesar de las numerosas
señales de crisis del matrimonio, “el deseo de familia
permanece vivo, especialmente entre los jóvenes, y esto
motiva a la Iglesia.” Trabajando con tantas parejas,
preparándose para el matrimonio, como yo lo hago,
estas palabras nos dan a todos una esperanza para el
futuro de nuestra Iglesia y de la sociedad en general.
Miércoles 11 de Mayo-
Es bastante apropiado que hoy siendo el Día de las
Madres, reflexionemos por un momento sobre las
palabras de este documento más reciente de Roma que
habla sobre el papel de la smadres y su importancia
para la familia: “La Alegría del Amor” dice:
“Una sociedad sin madres sería una sociedad
inhumana, porque las madres saben testimoniar
siempre, incluso en los peores momentos, la ternura, la
entrega, la fuerza moral. Las madres transmiten a
menudo también el sentido más profundo de la práctica
religiosa: en las primeras oraciones, en los primeros
gestos de devoción que aprende un niño … Sin las
madres, no sólo no habría nuevos fieles, sino que la fe
perdería buena parte de su calor sencillo y profundo. …
Queridísimas mamás, gracias, gracias por lo que sois en
la familia y por lo que dais a la Iglesia y al mundo.”
Debemos a cada una de nuestras madres una deuda de
gratitud infinita. Le damos gracias a Dios por cada una
de ustedes. Mi madre se fué al cielo hace ya numerosos
años pero yo se que no podría ser la persona quien yo
soy hoy en día, si no hubiera sido por sus cuidados y
amor que me guiaron a través de mis años de niñez y
juventud. Tengo la sospecha de que le dí un número de
canas que adornaban su cabeza pero ella nunca se
quejó. Cada hebra de su cabello era una medalla de
honor dada a élla por sus actos abnegados de amor
enseñados a mi y a mis hermanos.
Que a todas las mujeres que honramos el día de hoy
sean valoradas en lo más alto y que Dios continue
bendiciéndolas a cada una de ustedes hoy y siempre:
“¡Feliz Día de las Madres!”
En Cristo,
Diácono Frank
