This Sunday, April 12 is the FEAST OF
DIVINE MERCY. We will celebrate this feast at
3:00 PM –The Hour of Great Mercy. All our
parishioners are invited to come to the church
for a time of prayer and adoration of the
Blessed Sacrament.
Friday, April 17th, 2015
at 7:30 PM
The Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary
invite you every Third Friday of each month, to our
Eucharistic Cenacles at St. Agnes at 7:30 PM We begin
by praying the Holy Rosary, followed by the Holy Mass,
praise and worship before the Blessed Sacrament,
prayer for the sick, and intercession for all the needs of
the Church and of the world.
"It is our greatest desire that in the Eucharistic Cenacles
all may come to experience the power of the redemptive
love of the Eucharistic Heart of Christ and the maternal
mediation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Thus formed at the
School of His Heart we may become Apostles who receive
the power of the Holy Spirit so as to become ardent
witnesses of the New Evangelization and builders of a new
civilization of love and life; disposing ourselves, in this
manner, in accomplishing the merciful designs that the
Two Hearts have over humanity."

Our most sincere gratitude to everyone who helped
to make the celebration of Holy Week and Easter
so memorable and beautiful. The church was filled
beyond capacity in almost every service. Many
came to seek forgiveness in the sacrament of
A thousand thanks to all who ministered…as
lectors, ministers of Holy Communion, altar
servers, ushers, sacristans, especially Dr. Helen
Albertson, and our maintenance team. They and
many others do so much “behind the scenes”
cheerfully and willingly.
Our thanks to the students of St. Agnes Academy
who presented a realistic and very moving Way of
the Cross on Good Friday.
The choirs, as always, enriched our liturgies with
their artistic talent and all the rehearsal time
needed. The ladies of the Altar and Rosary Society
decorated the church with beauty, taste and
elegance, giving many hours to the task. And a
thousand thanks to all who by their prayers,
presence and generous donations showed their love
for God and our community of St. Agnes.
What good is Easter
if you are still a prisoner of your sins?
What good is Easter
if you are still chained
and in love with your chains?
What good is the empty tomb
if you don’t open up to life?
What good is God
If you don’t turn your life over?
What good is your life
if you don’t live to serve?
Please celebrate life;
cease your mourning for death.
In order to honor and praise God
you have to deeply desire life.

Who indeed is the victor over the world
but the one who believes
that Jesus is the Son of God?
— 1 John 5:5
Gospel reading ( John 20: 19-31)
On the evening of that first day of the week, when the doors were locked, where
the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and
said to them, “Peace be with you.” When he had said this, he showed them his
hands and his side. The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to
them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” And
when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy
Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are
retained.” Thomas, called Didymus, one of the Twelve, was not with them when
Jesus came. So the other disciples said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see
the mark of the nails in his hands and put my finger into the nail marks and put my hand into his side, I
will not believe.” Now a week later his disciples were again inside and Thomas was with them. Jesus came,
although the doors were locked, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.” Then he said to
Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands, and bring your hand and put it into my side, and do not
be unbelieving, but believe.” Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to
him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have
believed.” Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples that are not written in this book.
But these are written that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that
through this belief you may have life in his name.
Brief commentary
(In 2000, Pope John Paul II decreed that the 2 nd Sunday of Easter should be known as Divine
Mercy Sunday.” On this day, the Church reflects on the mystery of God’s love that is at the
heart of our faith and liturgy).
Last week’s Gospel told the story of the first three disciples who found the empty tomb, and
how each one reacted to the event. Today, the evangelist introduces a new character: Thomas.
Thomas refused to believe unless he saw and touched the wounds of the crucified Jesus. This
statement appears to be a contradiction, for once we “see and touch” faith is not needed and
unbelief is impossible. Yet, with this story the evangelist is trying to tell us that even among
the first followers of Jesus, there was doubt, unbelief, and fear. Jesus is patient with Thomas
and allows him to put his fingers and his hand into his wounds which causes Thomas to make
his familiar act of faith: “My Lord and my God.” Jesus uses the event to give a ninth
beatitude: “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.”
Today’s reading
The phrase “for fear of the Jews” highlights
the tension evident between Jesus and the
Jewish leaders.
The gift of the Risen Christ to us is Peace!
Thomas provides the archetypal experience of
doubt, struggle and faith.
For our shared or personal reflection:
After a brief pause for silent reflection share
your answers, ideas or feelings.
1. In what ways am I like Thomas? Explain.
2. How am I sharing the Peace of Christ with
those around me?

Segundo Domingo de Pascua

¿Quién es el que vence al mundo?
Sólo el que cree que Jesús es
el Hijo de Dios.
— 1 Juan 5:5
Evangelio ( San Juan 20, 19-31)
La tarde de aquel día, el primero de la semana, los discípulos estaban a puertas
cerradas por miedo a los judíos. Jesús se hizo presente allí, de pie en medio de
ellos. Les dijo: “La paz sea con ustedes”. Después de saludarlos así, les mostró las
manos y el costado. Los discípulos se llenaron de gozo al ver al Señor. El les volvió
a decir: “La paz esté con ustedes. Así como el Padre me envió a mí, así Yo los envío
a ustedes”. Dicho esto, sopló sobre ellos: “Reciban el Espíritu Santo, a quienes
ustedes perdonen, queden perdonados, y a quienes no libren de sus pecados,
queden atados”. Uno de los Doce no estaba cuando vino Jesús. Era Tomás, llamado
el Gemelo. Los otros discípulos le dijeron después: “Vimos al Señor”. Contestó: “No creeré sino cuando
vea la marca de los clavos en sus manos, meta mis dedos en el lugar de los clavos y palpe la herida del
costado”. Ocho días después, los discípulos estaban de nuevo reunidos dentro y Tomás con ellos. Se
presentó Jesús a pesar de estar las puertas cerradas, y se puso de pie en medio de ellos. Les dijo: “La paz
sea con ustedes”. Luego le dijo a Tomás: “Ven acá, mira mis manos; extiende tu mano y palpa mi costado.
En adelante no seas incrédulo, sino hombre de fe”. Tomás exclamó: “Tú eres mi Señor y mi Dios”. Jesús le
dijo: “Tú crees porque has visto. Felices los que creen sin haber visto”. Muchas otras cosas milagrosas hizo
Jesús en presencia de sus discípulos que no están escritas en este libro. Estas han sido escritas para que
crean que Jesús es el Cristo, el Hijo de Dios, y que por esta fe tengan la vida que él solo puede comunicar.
Comentario breve
El Evangelio del domingo pasado narró la historia de las diferentes reacciones de los tres primeros
discípulos que encontraron la tumba vacía. Hoy, el evangelista presenta un nuevo personaje: Tomás.
Tomás, quien no había estado presente la primera vez que Jesús se aparece a los discípulos, se niega a creer
a menos que pueda tocar las llagas en las manos y en el costado de Cristo. Esta petición es algo tonta; una
vez que vemos y tocamos, no es necesaria la fe, y dudar sería imposible. Sin embargo, con esta historia el
evangelista nos demuestra que, aún entre los primeros seguidores de Jesús había dudas y miedos. Jesús es
paciente con Tomás y le permite tocar sus heridas, lo cual hace que Tomás diga la famosa frase: “¡Señor
mío y Dios mío!” Jesús usa este incidente para darnos la novena bienaventuranza: “Felices (benditos) los
que creen sin haber visto”. Así como en la primera creación el aliento de Dios infundió la vida al hombre,
así también el soplo de Jesús comunica la vida a la nueva creación espiritual. Cristo, que murió para quitar
el pecado del mundo, ya resucitado, deja a los suyos el poder de perdonar.
La lectura de hoy nos presenta tres ideas
 Hemos sido enviado por Jesús a continuar su
misión, a transformar la cultura de muerte en
una cultura de vida.
 ¡El don que el Cristo resucitado nos ofrece es
la PAZ!
 La figura de Tomás es un arquetipo de
nuestras dudas y luchas hasta llegar a la fe
Para la reflexión comunitaria:
Después de una pausa breve para reflexionar en
silencio, comparta con otros sus ideas o
1. ¿De qué modo me parezco a Tomás? Explica.
2. ¿Cómo estoy compartiendo la paz de Cristo
con los que me rodean? Da ejemplos
