of the Lord
May 12, 2013
The Lord Jesus takes his place in
the Kingdom and continues to
guide and shepherd us. The
Church’s prayer, especially this
week before Pentecost, seeks the
gifts of the Holy Spirit, everything
we need to be faithful in our use
of God’s gifts, generous in our
service to one another.

throughout Judea and Samaria,
and to the ends of the earth.”

Reaching out to
Inactive Catholics
Do you know someone who has been inactive
in their faith for a while but is interested
in taking another look at life with the Church?
We are hosting a series of gatherings on Fridays
in the Easter Season to hear their stories,
answer their questions and encourage them
to join us in prayer and service again.
Why don’t you invite that neighbor or family member
to come with you to our next meeting on Friday, May 17,

Fundraising for Christ Cathedral renovation
and Pastoral Services Appeal 2013
Many of our parishes are currently involved in the
Capital Campaign for these important efforts. St. Pius
V will be conducting that Campaign in the fall of
2013 with other parishes as well.
As Father Ted announced last November, when we
conduct the Campaign we will raise funds for the
diocesan efforts and receive a portion for our own
projects. We plan to use our portion of the funds to
refurbish the statues of our Saints, to reupholster the
chairs in the Chapel and, if funds are sufficient, to
install solar panels to help lower our electrical costs.
Please take a tour of our future Christ Cathedral soon
and pray about your gift to this effort.

Adults to be Confirmed at the 5;15 pm
Mass next Saturday, May 18
Next Saturday is the Vigil of Pentecost.
Some adult members of our parish will be
confirmed at the 5:15 pm Mass.
The Sacrament of Confirmation “is called
Confirmation because it confirms and
strengthens baptismal grace.” “The effect of
Confirmation is a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit like that
of Pentecost. This outpouring impresses on the soul an indelible
character and produces a growth in the grace of Baptism. It
roots the recipient more deeply in divine sonship, binds him
more firmly to Christ and to the Church and reinvigorates the
gifts of the Holy Spirit in his soul. It gives a special strength to
witness to the Christian faith.” (Compendium of the Catechism
of the Catholic Church Nos. 266, 268)
The Vigil of Pentecost is not as extended a celebration as the
Easter Vigil but it will take a little longer than a usual Saturday
evening mass so please plan accordingly.

En el Evangelio de Lucas hoy, Jesús recuerda su misión (y la de los apóstoles). Les
ordena regresar a la ciudad y esperar la promesa del Padre. Los bendice y es “llevado
al cielo”. Este “ser llevado” sugiere ser elevado como un sacrificio aceptable que
asciende al trono de Dios. Los apóstoles, nutridos por Escrituras que hablan de
sacrificios aceptables, lo comprenden. Ellos van a Jerusalén a esperar y a orar.
La primera lectura reitera y desarrolla más esta experiencia. Aquí, también, Jesús
ordena a sus apóstoles regresar a Jerusalén y esperar. Pero les revela algo nuevo:
deben esperar el poderoso bautismo del Espíritu Santo.
Sabemos que dentro de pocos días el poderoso Espíritu vendrá a los apóstoles.
Podemos agradecerles que se quedaron y esperaron, a pesar de sus temores. De su
ejemplo aprendamos lo que significa esperar y aceptar la venida del Espíritu Santo.

Reflexionemos sobre la Palabra de Dios
Hubiera dado lo mismo que el maestro de piano de Gabino le dijera que se pusiera a volar alrededor de la habitación. Así
de incapaz se sentía para tocar su arreglo de Bach más rápido. Él miró al señor Simons con incredulidad. “Gabino, ¿qué
es lo que te acabo de pedir?” “Usted me pidió que tocara la composición más rápido, señor”. “Bueno, ¿y por qué te me
quedas mirando sin hacer nada? ¿A qué esperas? Tócala más rápido.
En los dos relatos de hoy sobre la ascensión de Cristo al cielo, los discípulos parecen experimentar la misma clase de
adormecimiento. Cristo les pide lo que parece imposible. Aunque estaban alegres porque él había resucitado y ascendido
al cielo, tal vez aún no tenían la confianza de ser sus discípulos “hasta los extremos de la tierra” (Hechos 1:8). Tenían
que esperar a estar llenos del poder del Espíritu Santo. ¿A qué esperamos nosotros?

Hoy celebramos a una mujer potente e importante
en nuestras vidas; la madre. La historia del día de la madre
se originó en las fiestas Griegas en honor de Rhea, la
madre de los dioses. A lo largo de la historia los cristianos
también hemos recordado a la Madre de Dios, María, en
varias solemnidades, pero hace sólo 100 años que en el 10
de mayo de 1907 en los Estados Unidos se empezó a
promover la idea de un día de reconocimiento del amor
que tenemos como humanos por nuestras propias madres.
matriarcales, es decir, el papel de la madre en la familia es
algo esencial. Para los latinos, no hay amor más grande
que el de una madre. Sin olvidar la función del padre, ella
es la que nos da la vida, nos enseña como vivirla y nos da
alimento. Su amor nos recuerda al de Cristo, quien con
sacrificio y amor da vida a la Iglesia. Su amor sostiene y
cuando las cosas se ponen difíciles emocionalmente,
nuestro deseo secreto es de estar en los brazos de mamá.
