Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of the Lord
Sunday, March 31, 2013
Our Lady Queen of Peace
Homily Reflection
Ivan Dragicevic of Medjugorje, will speak at St Joseph’s Church
on Saturday evening, April 13th. Ivan Dragicevic, one of the six
visionaries of Medjugorje who continues to receive daily
apparitions of Our Lady, will be at St Joseph’s Church on
Tarbell St. in Pepperell, MA.
Since June 24, 1981, a truly astonishing phenomenon has been
taking place in Medjugorje, a village in a mountainous region of
Bosnia-Hercegovina. It is claimed that the mother of Jesus, Our
Lady, the Blessed Virgin Mary, has been appearing to six young
people and giving “messages” to the world. In Our Lady’s
“I have come to tell the world that God exists. He is the fullness
of life and to enjoy this fullness and peace you must return to
God.” Our Lady exhorts everyone to convert and to pray
always, to have a continuous awareness of the presence of God
through reconciliation with Him and with one’s neighbor,
through fasting, works of charity, reading the Scriptures and
partaking in the sacraments—particularly the sacraments of
Reconciliation and the Eucharist.
There will be, Rosary at 6 p.m. followed by a Time of silence at
6:40 , Holy Mass at 7pm, and a talk presented by Ivan at 8pm.
The activity will be held at the St Joseph’s Church 28 Tarbell St.
Pepperell, MA 01463.
Many people in our community watch soap operas
regularly. Everyone knows that, no matter how tragic the
story of evil, misfortune, lies, and injustice endured by the
heroes and heroines, the end will be favorable for those
who are good. The ending is always happy for those who
are innocent and the result for the villains is always
catastrophic. Even though such an ending is always
known, soap opera viewers follow them faithfully, day
after day, suffering and rejoicing with the characters.
Somehow, the knowledge that good will triumph gives
viewers the trust that, no matter how difficult their own
situation is currently, good will triumph. Christians know
this as well when we contemplate the Resurrection of
Christ. Only in the case of Christ, victory and triumph are
more definitive and powerful than in any soap opera. The
victory and triumph of Christ declare, not that the evils of
the present life are conquered, but that all evil, all inner
personal slavery, and all collective will be defeated. In the
end of soap operas, perhaps the characters will be happy
after a long period of suffering. But we also know that this
won’t last because inevitably sickness and death will
come. However, the victory of Christ assures us that there
is another life that has no end, that is abundant and
eternal, where all tears and suffering will be eliminated,
and where death is conquered.
Mass for the Healing of Those Affected
by Child Abuse
Our Wish For You...
In recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, the
Diocese of Manchester cordially invites all those people affected by
or concerned about child abuse to join in celebration of a special
Mass at St. Joseph Cathedral Chapel on Thursday, April 11, 2013 at
6:30 p.m. The Mass will be followed by a brief reception in the
Cathedral parish hall. For more information, please contact Joseph
P. Naff, LICSW, Director, Office of Healing and Pastoral Care, at
[email protected] or 603-668-0014, ext. 233.
One of the greatest pleasures we have is to extend our
thoughts and prayers to those whose friendship and
goodwill we value so highly.
Fr. Marcos, and the Staff at St. Louis join in wishing
you all a very Blessed Easter. May the gift of faith,
the blessing of hope and the peace of God’s love be
with you and yours always.

In their fright the women
bowed down with their faces to
the ground, but the men said to
them, “Why do you look for the
living among the dead? He is not
here; he has risen! Remember
how he told you, while he was
still with you in Galilee: The Son
of Man must be delivered over to
the hands of sinners, be crucified
and on the third day be raised
again.’ ”Then they remembered
his words.” Luke 24: 5-8

Struggling in your marriage?
You are not alone!
Marriage is about beautiful weddings, romance, love and
candlelight anniversary dinners, but marriage is also about dirty
laundry, confrontations, balancing budgets, and hanging in there
with teens. Retrouvaille (pronounced re-tro-vy) is a peer ministry
led by married couple who have struggled to make their
marriages work to provide concrete assistance to other
struggling couples who are undergoing difficulties in their
marriages, for those who are hurting in brokenness and
loneliness. Retrouvaille has proven helpful as well to couples
who are separated or divorced.
The 2013 New England Retrouvaille marriage renewal
weekends will be held on:
• April 5-7, 2013
• September 20-23, 2013

Are you sleeping?
Early in my marriage I had the horrible habit of becoming extremely drowsy whenever my wife wanted to deal with a difficult issue. It
was a highly inappropriate psychological coping mechanism, and I
had the hardest time overcoming it. Try as I might to appear alert
and interested, I kept falling asleep. Needless to say, that did little to
endear me to my wife. And so I have a bit of sympathy for the apostles who accompanied Jesus to the Mount of Olives and promptly
fell asleep. Jesus expressed his tremendous sorrow and asked them
to keep watch. But time and again they dozed. I imagine it wasn’t
only the wine from the Passover meal, nor the lateness of the hour
that had them dropping off to sleep. I suspect that fear had a lot to
do with it. Here was the person they could most count on in any difficult situation—the one who stood up to the temple officials and who
calmed the stormy seas—and he was clearly in great turmoil. I think
we all can tend to snooze—literally or figuratively—when fear
strikes. We can give in to the urge to hide in bed with the covers
pulled up over our heads when life gets uncertain or scary. But time
and again Jesus tells us, “Fear not.” On Good Friday, Jesus walks
head-on to face humanity’s greatest fear—suffering and death. If we
don’t sleep through his passion, we’ll be awake for his resurrection.

Domingo de Pascua de la Resurrección del Señor
Hoy la Iglesia se viste de gala; la fiesta de cincuenta días
pascuales ha comenzado y nuestros catecúmenos participan con
toda la comunidad en su alegría. Mediante el bautismo de estos,
se nos recuerda lo que el profeta Ezequiel en sus tiempos
anunciaba a su pueblo, el cual había vivido acciones impuras y su
corazón endurecido escuchaba estas palabras de consuelo: "Los
rociaré con agua pura y quedarán purificados; los purificaré de
todas sus inmundicias e idolatrías".Estas palabras de la lectura de
la vigilia penetran y alegran los corazones de todos los bautizados. Todos los que hemos vivido en el pecado somos lavados con
el agua viva mientras renovamos nuestras promesas bautismales
y nos rocían con el agua santa.
Jesús ha resucitado de la muerte. Las mujeres no habían
removido la piedra, pero sí removieron la incredulidad. El
Evangelio nos dice que dos hombres con ropas fulgurantes les
preguntaron cuando más asustadas estaban: ¿Por qué buscan
entre los muertos al que está vivo? Las mujeres creyeron, pero a
la vez no les creyeron a ellas cuando fueron de prisa a compartir
su experiencia con los discípulos. Ellas ya estaban envueltas de la
Resurrección, pero a ellos les faltaba creer para estarlo. ¡Qué
contraste! Ellas fueron apóstoles de los apóstoles. La Pascua es
vida nueva para todas aquellas personas que se sienten menos
apreciadas, inadecuadas y despreciadas. Es por eso que la Iglesia
celebra la Nueva Evangelización. Es decir, el mensaje del
Evangelio debe ser nuevo en nuestros corazones. ¿Creemos esto?
Entonces celebrémoslo junto con los recién bautizados: ¡Aleluya!
