2nd Sundy of Easter

Second Sunday of Easter
Divine Mercy Sunday—May 1st
The first Sunday after Easter is Divine Mercy Sunday, a day of special significance for peace for the world. A day to contemplate Our Lord’s Divine Mercy
for all His loved creatures. The message is simply that God is merciful, that
He is Love poured out for us, and He wants all of us to turn to Him with trust
in repentance and conversion. In a decree dated August 3, 2002, the Apostolic
Penitentiary announced that in order “to insure that the faithful would observe
this day (Divine Mercy Sunday) with intense devotion, the Supreme Pontiff
himself established that this Sunday be enriched by a plenary indulgence (the
remission of temporal punishment due for a sin that has been sacramentally
absolved)...so that the faithful might receive in great abundance the gift of
consolation of the Holy Spirit.”
God’s plan of Mercy has come to us through the revelations received by a
young Polish nun Sister Maria Faustina in the 1930’s. She was canonized by
Pope John Paul II on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 30, 2000.
I Arose and Am Still with You!
from Bishop Robert H. Brom
Jesus has passed over from death to life! He speaks to us as
He demonstrated and spoke to His contemporaries: “I arose
and am still with you.” Let us listen to Jesus not only with
our heads, but with our hearts, and in a way that will make
a difference in our lives:
I arose and am still with you! I am with you to be light for
you who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death. “In
Christ our light, glory fills the earth. Darkness vanishes forever” (Easter Proclamation).
I arose and am still with you! I am with you to establish a new creation in which men
and women are redeemed, restored to grace and grow together in holiness. “O happy
fault, O necessary sin of Adam which gained for us so great a Redeemer” (Easter Proclamation).
I arose and am still with you! I am with you to lead you from the slavery of selfishness
and sin to the freedom of life and joy as children of God. “How boundless God’s merciful love. To ransom slaves, He gives away his Son” (Easter Proclamation).
I arose and am still with you! I am with you to be for you a source of living water
springing up to eternal life. “Jesus broke the chains of death and rose triumphant from
the grave. He sheds His peaceful light on all mankind” (Easter Proclamation).
Jesus has passed over from death to life. He is risen and is still with us that we might
share in His victory over darkness, evil, sin and death and live in that communion with
God for which we were made. In His word, in the sacraments and in the Church, the
community of believers, Jesus is alive and in our midst. There are everyday signs, too,
that Jesus remains with us on our journey of faith, not in the strict sense of sacrament,
but they are there: whenever the love of God is enfleshed by others and in whatever is
true and good and beautiful and holy. Easter invites us to read and welcome all the signs
of the risen Lord among us, and to live in the joy that the world cannot give, a joy which
should never be lost amid the trials and tribulations of life, the joy of Easter.

Always our Children
Tuesdays, May 10 & 17
7:00pm in the Parish Hall
We will be conducting an informal
workshop focused on a statement of
the National Conference of Catholic
Bishops entitled: "Always Our Children: A Pastoral Message to Parents
of Homosexual Children." This statement was first published in 1997 but
is relatively unknown. During the two
evenings we will read through the
document. "The purpose of this pastoral message is to
reach out to parents trying to cope with the discovery
of homosexuality in their adolescent or adult child. It
urges families to draw upon the reservoirs of faith,
hope and love as they face uncharted futures. It asks
them to recognize that the Church offers enormous
spiritual resources to strengthen and support them at
this moment in their family's life and in the days to
come." NCCB
The workshop is also open to those with same-sex
orientation. Fr. Mike Sinor and Michael Serra, a parishioner, will be guiding the participants through the document.

Señor Mío y Dios Mío
Si la resurrección de Jesús no hubiera tenido efecto alguno en la vida de los discípulos, la Resurrección no tuviera como sentido final la re-creación del ser humano y por tanto la re-creación de un nuevo orden, entonces eso de la Resurrección
de Jesús no habría pasado de ser un asunto particular entre Dios Padre y Dios
Hijo. Pero, como la resurrección de Jesús es la base y fundamento de una comunidad y el horizonte hacia el cual tiende toda la creación, por eso tanto el evangelio de hoy como la primera lectura de Hechos, tratan de iluminarnos sobre cuál
es ese horizonte y cuáles son los efectos inmediatos, reales y concretos de la Resurrección.
El evangelio nos da la pista para entender que el descubrimiento de los efectos y alcances de la
resurrección de Jesús no se comprenden rápidamente, de un momento a otro. Una vez que los
dos discípulos han comprobado que Jesús “no está” en la tumba y una vez que María Magdalena
les anuncia que Jesús está vivo y que ha hablado con él, los discípulos siguen encerrados. Dos veces en el pasaje de hoy escuchamos estas dos expresiones, “los discípulos estaban con las puertas
bien cerradas” y “ocho días después los discípulos continuaban reunidos en su casa”, lo cual es
signo de que esto es un proceso de maduración de la fe. No nos dice el evangelista que los discípulos “no creyeran” en el Resucitado; con excepción de Tomás, todos lo habían visto y creían en
él; pero una cosa es creer y otra abrirse a las implicaciones que tiene la fe, y ese es el proceso que
le toma a la comunidad de discípulos un buen tiempo, tiempo por demás en el que Jesús, con toda
paciencia y comprensión, está ahí cercano, acompañando, animando y ayudando a madurar la fe
de cada discípulo. Tal vez a nosotros, como creyentes de este tiempo, nos hace falta madurar
aún mucho más el aspecto de la fe; tal vez nuestros conceptos tradicionales aprendidos sobre
Jesús y su evangelio no nos permiten ver con claridad cuál es el horizonte de esa fe cristiana que
confesamos tan folclóricamente y que, por tanto, no impacta a nadie. Valdría la pena hacer el ejercicio de desaprender; vaciar completamente nuestro ser, nuestro corazón, hacer lo de Tomás,
viendo el caso de Tomás desde la óptica más positiva, claro está; que no lo juzgamos de entrada
como “el incrédulo”, sino como el que quiere creer y poner en práctica su fe, pero que desde su
vacío interior necesita ser llenado por la presencia de su Señor. Éste es el camino que estamos llamados nosotros hoy a recorrer.
