March 20, 2016 • Palm Sunday
of the Passion of the Lord
20 de marzo de 2016 • Domingo
de Ramos “de la Pasión del Señor”
Here we stand, once again, holding high our
palm branches to be blessed. With the crowd
in the Gospel story, we proclaim, “Blessed is
the king who comes in the name of the Lord.”
Unlike those people in the Gospel who greeted
Jesus, we know where this is going. We know
that we are included in the crowds who greeted
Jesus with joy, and in the same crowds who one
week later would shout, “Crucify him!” We live into the story
of Christ’s glory and his suffering.
Aquí estamos, una vez más, sosteniendo a
lo alto nuestras ramos y palmas para que sean
bendecidos. Junto a la multitud de la historia del
Evangelio, proclamamos: “Bendito el que viene
en nombre del Señor”. Pero a diferencia de esas
personas del Evangelio, que vitoreaban a Jesús,
sabemos el resto de la historia. Sabemos que
estamos dentro de la multitud que alegremente
saludó a Jesús, y en la misma multitud que una
semana después a gritos pediría que lo “crucificaran”. Vivimos
dentro de la historia tanto la gloria de Cristo como su sufrimiento.
SUFRIMIENTO Y REDENCIÓN
SUFFERING AND REDEMPTION
The reading of the Passion is long and hard to hear. Beginning
with the Last Supper, the Passover meal in which Jesus gives
himself to us in the bread and wine, through the agonizing
prayer in the garden, to the trial, condemnation, and finally the
crucifixion, we stand, patiently listening and wondering how we
fit into this story. Although told in the past tense, we hear this
story in the present tense, knowing that this is our story, one in
which we suffer with our crucified Lord. We know also that this
will lead to the Resurrection, but for now, we experience the
grief and sadness that will be repeated in the rituals later this
week: the Mass of Holy Thursday, the service of Good Friday
with the veneration of the cross, and the quiet and thoughtful
time of Holy Saturday leading to the glorious Easter Vigil. We
view Jesus’ suffering through the eyes of the women of Galilee
as well as the guards and other disciples who watch from a distance. We have a glimpse of our redemption in the conversation
of Jesus with “the good thief.” Our hearts are broken. We finally
recognize the effects of our sinfulness and the great gift that Jesus
has given us in the Eucharist and in his death. That recognition
can lead us truly to redemption as we contemplate its implication in our lives. We look forward to the Resurrection with eager
anticipation of our salvation.
La proclamación de la Pasión es larga y difícil de escuchar.
Empezando con la Última Cena, la cena pascual en la
que Jesús se nos ofrece a nosotros en la forma del pan y el
vino, de la oración agonizante en el jardín de los olivos al
juicio, la sentencia y finalmente la crucifixión, estamos de
pie pacientemente escuchando y preguntándonos nuestro
papel en esta historia. Aunque narrada en tiempo pasado,
escuchamos esta historia en tiempo presente, sabiendo
que esta es nuestra historia, una en la que sufrimos junto
con nuestro Señor crucificado. También sabemos que esto
nos llevará a la Resurrección, pero por ahora, tenemos la
experiencia del dolor y duelo que se repetirán en los rituales
más adelante esta semana: la Misa del Jueves Santo, el
servicio del Viernes Santo con la veneración de la Cruz y la
soledad y reflexión del Sábado Santo guiándonos a la Vigilia
Pascual. Vemos el sufrimiento de Jesús a través de los ojos de
las mujeres de Galilea, los soldados y otros de los discípulos
que veían desde lejos. Tenemos un vistazo de nuestra
redención en la conversación de Jesús con “el buen ladrón”.
Nuestros corazones están rotos. Por último reconocemos los
efectos de nuestros pecados y el gran don que Jesús nos dio en
la Eucaristía y en su muerte. Y este reconocer pueden guiarnos
verdaderamente a la redención mientras contemplamos su
implicación en nuestras vidas. Esperamos la Resurrección con
una gran expectativa de nuestra salvación.

Quinceañeras
If you are thinking of preparing for a Quinceañera, it is
necessary to have two complete years of CCE with no
more than three absences each year. If you are planning
for 2017, you do not have enough time for preparation,
according to guidelines that were published repeatedly in
the bulletin this time last year. If you are planning for
2018, it is necessary to register NOW for CCE for the
coming year. For students that are attending classes now,
you must continue every year until your Confirmation.
Si usted está pensando en la preparación para una
Quinceañera, es necesario tener dos años completos del
CCE con no más de tres ausencias cada año. Si usted está
planeando para el año 2017, no tiene tiempo suficiente
para la preparación, conforme a los lineamientos que se
publicaron en el boletín repetidamente esta época del año
pasado. Si usted está planeando para 2018, es necesario
registrarse ahora para CCE para el próximo año. Para los
estudiantes que asisten a clases ahora, debe continuar cada año hasta su confirmación.
