The Sixth Sunday of Easter
Do Not Be Afraid
In today’s Gospel we can tell that Jesus’
followers are troubled. Their teacher and
friend is explaining that he will be leaving them very soon, and they are worried
and anxious because they don’t know
what the future will bring. So he comforts
them by letting them know they will not be abandoned. He gives
them a great gift: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.”
And 2,000 years later, we who are also his followers are worried
and anxious about the future, too.
If we are young, we worry about whether we will find jobs,
whether we will find love, whether our lives will have meaning
and purpose. These worries can come back throughout our lives,
but when we are older we also tend to worry about whether we will
be able to look back on our lives and feel we have lived well.
And so, Jesus’ words are meant not only for disciples standing
right before him, but also for us. Our future is unknown, and that
may be unsettling, but we have not been abandoned. Jesus tells us
not to let our hearts be troubled or afraid. If we open ourselves and
allow ourselves truly to experience God’s presence, then our hearts
can be nourished by the gift of peace that Jesus offers.

All are invited to our
“Catholicism” DVD
Presentation of
Episode 8:
Thursday, May 9th
at 7pm in the Parish Hall
The story of the Church is
told in the examples of
those men and women who dedicated their
lives to knowing and serving Jesus Christ.
The Catholic Faith is made visible in real
human lives. Father Barron gives consideration to some of the Church’s greatest
heroes, and demonstrates how their extraordinary examples display both the passion and creative potential of the Catholic
Church. Highlighting Katharine Drexel,
Therese of Lisieux, Edith Stein, and Mother
Teresa of Calcutta, Father Barron tells the
story of the Church as a vast company of
witnesses who are called by Christ to be a
Communion of Saints.
This Tuesday, May 7th, our Confirmation Candidates
celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation at St. Joseph Cathedral.
Pray for our students as they prepare to receive this sacrament:
We pray that the Holy Spirit will renew all their lives, strengthen their
relationship with God, and urge them onward in their faith journey.

May—the Month of Mary
A Protestant Christian sitting by Mother Teresa
on a plane said to her, "Mother, I admire your
work so much and all the things you do for the
poor. But I have a problem. It's your love for
Mary. It's your attention to Mary." Mother
Teresa replied, "It's very simple…No Mary, no
How true this is. And we can also say, "No
Mary, no Church." The Church has always
distinguished between adoration of God and
venation of Mary. We adore God, we honor Mary. On November 21, 1964,
at the Second Vatican Council, Pope Paul VI declared our Lady "Mother of
the Church, that is, of the entire Christian people, both the faithful and their
pastors, who call her their most loving mother." He decreed that "from now
onward the whole Christian people should give even greater honor to the
Mother of God under this most loving title."
In his first speech as Bishop of Rome on October 17, 1978, Pope John
Paul II insisted that the primary duty of his pontificate would be to implement the norms and directives of the Vatican II. "Motherhood" formed the
underlying theme of all that Blessed John Paul II wrote about Mary.
As at the wedding of Cana, seeing that "they have no wine" (John 2:3), the
Mother of Jesus stands between her Son and us. The same intercession
and maternal care continues in heaven.
Mother Mary sees that we receive every grace we need.
--Philip Dabney, CSsR, Liguorian
The Paschal Candle
Throughout the Easter season the paschal candle burns at
every liturgical celebration. It proclaims the resurrection
of Christ among us. The candle has the year, a cross and
the Greek letters alpha and omega on it. The year proclaims that Christ is risen right now for this community,
this year. The alpha and omega demonstrates that this is
not a temporary visit, like the arrival of relatives in search
of a meal and a bed.
The candle reappears throughout the year at every celebration of baptism and every funeral. Baptism set us on the threshold of eternal life,
and our death opens its door. Seeing the candle for fifty days spanning
seven Sundays, we are reminded again and again of its imperious
message: Christ rules as King of Kings because of his resurrection.
The cross, the instrument of his passion is inscribed in the wax, has
been transformed into a sign of resurrection. Even as the wax melts,
diminishing the height of the candle, its message never fades: No matter our own diminishment--in health, companionship, or insight--the
resurrection shines bright in our hearts as a beacon for future glory.
Seeing the candle week after week can embolden our faith.

Sexto Domingo de Pascua
La resolución del Espíritu
Jesús prometió a sus discípulos que el Espíritu Santo
vendría para instruirlos en
toda la verdad revelada. Y
no cabe duda que el Espíritu los acompaña
cuando adoptan las decisiones que hoy describe el libro de los Hechos, un punto crucial para el Cristianismo.
Los reunidos en la asamblea de Jerusalén
determinaron que no era necesaria la circuncisión para ser cristiano. Los gentiles convertidos a la fe en Cristo podían ser bautizados en
su nombre sin tener que hacerse circuncidar.
Fue así como la comunidad cristiana abrió sus
puertas a los no judíos. Todas las gentes
tendrían acceso a la comunidad de salvación
“sin más cargas que las necesarias”. Importa
ver cómo se alcanzó esa decisión. No fue impuesta por Pedro o Pablo o Santiago. Al contrario, cuando surgió el asunto sobre cómo incorporar a los no judíos, las comunidades
cristiana escogieron a sus representantes y
los enviaron a exponer sus experiencias y sus
puntos de vista ante los otros líderes eclesiales. En Jerusalén se reunió toda la iglesia y
tomó acuerdos. No hubo imposición unilateral;
se debatió abiertamente y con transparencia.

Por Javier Leoz
Empezaremos por las dos primeras y al terminar el mes de mayo tendrás las 10 .
1. Pronuncia un "sí" cuando tengas que responder afirmativamente en aras a la justicia y al bien
común. Por el contrario, recuerda que a veces un "no" a tiempo, es -a la larga- un "sí".
2. No huyas de tus responsabilidades. Hay cosas que, si tú no las haces, nadie las realizará por ti. Nadie
somos imprescindibles, pero todos necesarios. En Nazaret, Dios, me hizo ver, en mi pequeñez, mi papel a desempeñar.
