Reflecting on God’s Word
Sixth Sunday of Easter
As a na on, we are a mobile people. Not
only do we travel around during
vaca ons, for special events, and for
visi ng family and friends, but we readily
move from one place to another for
college, work, health reasons, and finally
re rement. While previous genera ons
usually stayed with one job and in one
house for prac cally all of their lives,
today it is common to move from one
place to another, to a diﬀerent state or
even to a diﬀerent country. This mobility
carries over into our rela onships. We
can find that our lives take us from one
set of friends to another, from one close
rela onship to another.
So Jesus’ admoni on to remain in his love
can sound quite challenging to people
whose lives are characterized by change
and impermanence. The word “remain” is
some mes translated as “abide.” The
meaning of this invita on is to “take up
permanent residence.” Last week Jesus
called us to “remain” in his word; this
week, to “remain in my love” (John 15:9).
Jesus tells us how to do this (by keeping
his commandments), why we should do
this (so that his joy might be in us and our
joy complete), what specifically we should
do (love one another as I have loved you,
that is, by laying down my life for you),
and what is to be gained by doing this (an
ongoing friendship with him that bears
fruit and gains whatever we ask the
Father in his name).
Not a bad exchange for se ling down . . .
in his love.
—James A. Wallace, C.Ss.R.

spiritually the mother of all of us.
This Thursday, May 14, our Neophytes (newly bap zed) will be
learning about what the Paschal Mystery means and how to apply
it to our daily life experiences.
As we con nue to love and honor our own grandmothers and
mothers, even a er they have passed on to heaven, so we
con nue to love and honor the mother of our Lord. Worship is
given to God alone. When we pray to Mary, we are simply asking
her to pray with us before God, to present our pe ons and
thanksgivings to her son. As we believe that all Chris ans live
forever in Christ, it is no diﬀerent than asking any other Chris an
friend to pray for us. We are instructed in the scriptures to pray
for one another. Catholics keep pictures and statues of Mary in
our churches for remembrance, just as one keeps photographs of
loved ones in a wallet or on the wall of their home. The picture is
not the same as the person, it is just a way to remember them, to
not forget their goodness and the love we have shared with them.
Anyone desiring to become a Catholic is welcome to begin the
Inquiry Process on Thursday evenings at 7:30. In order to be
received into the Catholic Church by Easter 2016, it is necessary to
begin the process during the Easter Season this year.
Wednesday Evening Bible
This Wednesday evening, May 13, we will
con nue with the second session of our
study of the Gospel of John. We will
meet in the Ministry Center Library from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Please read
John chapters 5-6 prior to the mee ng. This sec on of John’s Gospel
contains the most detailed explana on of the Eucharist given by Jesus
to his Apostles that is recorded in the scriptures, and it vital to our
understanding of the True Presence of Christ in the Eucharist.
Monday Bible Study
On Monday morning, May 11, we will con nue with the fi h of an
8-part series on the Biblical texts regarding Mary. This study is
accompanied by a DVD with beau ful photography of the places
in the Holy Land associated with the life of the Virgin Mary. In this
outstanding presenta on, walk with Mary through the Easter
season visi ng those places dear to her heart and to her Son. We
will meet in the Ministry Center Library from 9:15 to 11 a.m. For

This Sunday is celebrated as Mother’s Day in the United States.
Many people will take their mothers out for brunch, dinner, or
stop by for a visit with a gi . Others may think lovingly about
mothers who are now living in heaven. At Mass, special blessings
will be given to mothers.
As Catholics, we honor Mary as the Mother of the Church, and the
whole month of May is dedicated to her. Some mes honor we
give to Mary in our Church is misunderstood by other Chris ans,
who are concerned that it is idolatrous, giving the worship due
only to God to a human being.
This is an incorrect understanding of Catholic devo on to Mary.
We honor Mary because she was the mother of our Lord. Mary
was founda onal in the life of Jesus, giving birth to him, caring for
him through infancy, childhood and adolescence. Mary washed
Jesus clothes, cooked meals for him and told him bed me stories,
like all good mothers do. According to John’s Gospel, when Jesus
died, he entrusted Mary to the Beloved Disciple, who represents
the Church. She becomes not only the mother of Jesus, but
Mary’s life was not an easy one as a first century Jewish peasant.
She faced many challenges and had to trust in God, when the way
did not seem easy or clear just as many of us do. Mary was an
unmarried pregnant teenager whose fiancé was not too sure
about going ahead with the marriage. While the Gospels have
preserved for us the story of the angel and the divine origin of her
pregnancy, we have to remember that her neighbors did not
know what we now know, and made their own assump ons. Even
Joseph had to be convinced that Mary was suitable to become his
According to Luke’s Gospel, Mary and Joseph were away from
home when Jesus was born and had no place to stay, forcing her
to give birth in a stable. Ma hew tells us that a decree from King
Herod that all newborns be put to death caused the Holy Family
to become poli cal refugees, fleeing to a foreign country to
preserve their lives. In Egypt, they had no established home and
Joseph did not have a job, so they would have had to depend
upon the kindness of strangers.
At some point it appears that Joseph dies, leaving Mary a widow,
and then her son leaves home to begin his ministry. Mary would
have had to depend upon other rela ves for support as women
did not hold paying jobs, and there was no life insurance or social
security benefits. She lived in a town that was occupied for foreign
poli cal forces who showed li le respect for the local people,
especially women, and she had no man to protect her.
Ul mately, Mary sees her son arrested and painfully executed for
crimes he did not commit. As a mother, how incredibly diﬃcult
that must have been. But, she is also present with the other
believers a er the Resurrec on, when the Holy Spirit comes upon
them all to encourage and empower them with his gi s.
This is a woman who understands the diﬃcul es and the joys of
human life. Mary is worth honoring, she is the first and most
perfect disciple and the Mother of the Church.
Happy Mother’s Day!

Reflexionemos sobre la
Palabra de Dios
Sexto Domingo de Pascua
Como nación somos un pueblo en
movimiento. No es que sólo viajemos
durante las vacaciones y para visitar a
familiares y amistades, sino que estamos
dispuestos a mudarnos de un lugar a otro
para ir a la universidad, para trabajar, por
razones de salud y finalmente para
nuestra jubilación. Mientras que
generaciones anteriores normalmente
permanecían en un solo trabajo y en una
misma casa prác camente por toda su
vida, hoy es común mudarse de un lugar a
otro, a un estado diferente y aun a otro
país. Esta movilidad afecta nuestras
relaciones llevándonos de un grupo de
amigos hacia otro, de una relación ín ma
Es por eso que la amonestación de Jesús
para que permanezcamos en su amor
puede parecer como un gran reto para
aquellas personas cuya vida se dis ngue
por el cambio y la transitoriedad. La
palabra “permanecer” a veces se traduce
como algo “duradero”. El significado de
esta invitación es “quedarnos en una
residencia duradera”. La semana pasada
Jesús nos exhortó a “permanecer” unidos
en sus palabras; esta semana nos dice
“permanezcan en mi amor” (Juan 15:9).
Jesús nos dice cómo hacer eso
(cumpliendo sus mandamientos), por qué
hacerlo (para par cipar en su alegría y
que nuestra alegría sea completa), qué es
lo que debemos hacer específicamente
(amarnos los unos a los otros como él nos
ha amado, esto es, que entregó su vida
por mí y por ) y qué ganamos por hacer
esto (una amistad con nua con él, la cual
produce frutos y nos concede todo lo que
pidamos al Padre en su nombre).
Un intercambio bastante bueno por
permanecer . . . en su amor.
