May3,2015 Message from Father Pergjini:
Mensaje del Padre Pergjini:
It is Mother’s Day! What a beautiful moment to thank, to
pray, and to love our dear mothers, grandmothers,
godmothers living and deceased! I wanted to share with
you a very moving moment of my experience in the
parochial school which is one of my priestly joys is to
spend time with the students of our parochial school. It
was my first assignment at our Lady of Mount Carmel.
That day I was scheduled to be with the third grade
students. They always were very happy to see me, and I in
turn was delighted to be with them. That day I decided to
do something that I never experienced with them before. I
told them that today we were going to picture ourselves as
if we were in the presence of a beautiful place with the
Christ, Mary and Joseph. I said to them that they were free
to picture whomever person they would like to have with
Also they could ask questions or express their
desires to Christ. After they were set and ready to take this
imaginary journey, it was amazing to me to see those
innocents faces, beautiful faces with closed eyes and
relaxed tiny bodies. It was a deep and profound silence
that I felt absorbed into that moving scene. I had my own
conversation with Christ, Mary and Joseph. I asked Jesus
to guide and lead all the students and their families.
Suddenly, Sam, one of the students who unfortunately had
lost his dear mother a few weeks before, broke the silence.
In his tiny face I saw tears. He said with a trembling
voice: Father Pergjini I asked Jesus if I could see my mom
again. I miss my mom. And then, he continued: I pictured
my mom next to Jesus. I wanted to touch and speak to
her, but I couldn’t. Tears. I saw other students with teary
eyes. Silence mixed with pain. The eye contact between
him and me was too strong. I try to hold my tears, and I
painfully cried within my heart. After a few moments Sam
with his weak voice said: Thank you for feeling sorry for
me. Silence. Again tears. The students who were next to
him moved from their seats and hugged him. One of the
girls with her tiny hands dried his tears. She said to him:
Your mom is with Jesus. She is with Him. We love you
Sam. A smile came into his eyes; the joy of friendship
warmed his heart. The bell of the school rang. It was time
for lunch. To my surprise none of them moved from their
seats. They were looking at Sam and at me. These were
moments of hope, love, moments filled with Christ’s
presence. How powerful is that presence when we
experience pain. They and I experienced the pain of Sam,
but Christ made it possible to bring his joy and peace. I
did not speak much that day. It was Christ that spoke to
our hearts. And now, in the spirit of a humble prayer, in
the spirit of silence and peace, filled with love and
gratitude for our mothers, as I place all living and
deceased mothers, the Sam’s mother, my dear mom,
before Christ our Savior , our blessed Mother Mary, and
Saint Joseph! We love you, we thank you and God bless
you! Happy mother’s Day!
Es el día de la madre! ¡ Qué hermoso momento gracias,
orar y amar a nuestros estimadas madres, abuelas,
madrinas viven y difuntos! Quería compartir con ustedes
una muy conmovedor momento de mi experiencia en la
escuela parroquial que es uno de mis placeres sacerdotales
es pasar tiempo con los estudiantes de nuestra escuela
parroquial. Fue mi primera asignación en nuestra Señora
del Monte Carmelo. Ese día estaba programado para estar
con los estudiantes de tercer grado. Eran siempre muy
felices de verme, y a su vez me ha encantado estar con ellos.
Ese día me decidí a hacer algo que nunca experimenté con
ellos antes. Les dije que hoy íbamos a nosotros mismos
como si estuviéramos en presencia de un hermoso lugar con
el Cristo, María y José. Les dije que eran gratis a quien les
gustaría tener con ellos de la persona. También podrían
hacer preguntas o expresar sus deseos a Cristo. Después de
que fueran set y con ganas de emprender este viaje
imaginario, fue increíble para mí ver esas caras inocentes,
caras hermosas con ojos cerrados y relajados de pequeños
cuerpos. Era un silencio profundo y profundo que sentí
absorbida en esa escena conmovedora. Tuve mi propia
conversación con Cristo, María y José. Pedí a Jesús para
orientar y dirigir todos los estudiantes y sus familias.
De repente, Sam, uno de los estudiantes que
desafortunadamente perdieron a su querida madre unas
semanas antes, rompió el silencio. En su pequeño rostro vi
lágrimas. Dijo con una voz temblorosa: padre Pergjini
preguntó a Jesús si pude ver mi mamá otra vez. Echo de
menos mi mamá. Y luego, continuó: Foto de mi mamá al
lado de Jesús. Yo quería tocar y hablar con ella, pero no
podía. Lágrimas. Vi a otros estudiantes con ojos llorosos.
Silencio mezclado con dolor. El contacto con los ojos entre
él y yo era demasiado fuerte. Tratar de contener mis
lágrimas, y lloré dolorosamente dentro de mi corazón.
Después de unos momentos Sam con su voz dijo: Gracias
por sentir lástima por mí. Silencio. Otra vez lágrimas. Los
estudiantes que estaban junto a él se movió de sus asientos
y lo abrazaban. Una de las chicas con sus pequeñas manos
secó sus lágrimas. Ella le dijo: tu mamá está con Jesús. Ella
está con él. Te queremos Sam. Una sonrisa entró en sus
ojos; la alegría de la amistad había calentado su corazón.
Sonó la campana de la escuela. Era hora de almuerzo. Para
mi sorpresa, ninguno de ellos se trasladó desde su asiento.
Buscaban a Sam y a mí. Eran momentos de esperanza,
amor, momentos llenos de la presencia de Cristo. Lo
potente que es esa presencia cuando experimentamos dolor.
Ya experimentó el dolor de Sam, pero Cristo hizo posible
traer su gozo y paz. No hablo mucho ese día. Era el Cristo
que habló a nuestros corazones. Y ahora, en el espíritu de
un humilde oración, en el espíritu de silencio y paz, lleno de
amor y gratitud para nuestras madres, como colocar todas
las madres vivos y difuntas, madre de Sam, mi querida
mamá, antes de Cristo nuestro Salvador, nuestra Bendita
Madre María y San José! Te queremos, gracias y Dios los
bendiga! Día de la madre feliz!
