Month of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Hail Holy Queen
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, Our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, To thee do we send up our
sighs, Mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, And after
this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Pray for us, O Holy Mother of
God, That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Amen
Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed are thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of
thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.
BEARING FRUIT
" hildren, let us love not in word or speech
C
but in deed and truth."John's words come to
us on this day when the Gospel passage
presents us with the great image of the vine
and the branches. Jesus uses the image as a
warning to those who have begun to
distance themselves from the way of the
Lord. One of the ways this happens is when
we love God and others "in word or speech"
instead of i"n deed and truth."What does it
mean for us to "remain in Christ"? In an
extension of the metaphor, the Lord gives us
an example. If we remain in him, we will
bear much fruit. As the branches, we draw
strength from Christ who is the vine. This
strength enables us to bear fruit--to do the
work of true discipleship.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
Over time, the crisis of last illness and the way the faithful met
death changed. In earliest times, a sickbed vigil was an
occasion for the community to gather and strengthen the dying
person with assurances of love. A thousand years ago, in part
because of massive upheavals in society, a new emphasis on
individual repentance captured the imagination of millions.
Death was to be feared, because it was about judgment. The
delights of heaven's banquet dimmed, since most people saw
God's just judgment and inevitable punishment intervening. If a
community gathered at all, it was not to express faith in the
Resurrection, but to seek forgiveness for those who were
powerless to help themselves. The dead couldn't improve their
situation, but their loved ones, by expressing sorrow for sin,
could. Better yet, the clergy could, if they intervened in a
timely fashion, provide the absolution needed for everyone to
relax. Ministry to the sick shifted away from a ministry of
consolation toward a challenge to repent before it was too late.
As the sense grew that most people died with their work of
repentance incomplete, the color black was reintroduced to
funerals. It was the old pagan way of expressing despair. No
wonder they call this time in history the "Dark Ages." Many
layers have had to be peeled away to reveal the deepest, most
positive expressions of our tradition of care for the dying.

Ah, how wonderful is the advent of the Spring!—the

itself is divine power. Henry Wadsworth
Longfellow, 1849

100% of your tax deductible contribution goes directly toward helping the poorest of the poor.
The goal of the Cardinal McIntyre Fund for Charity is service to the
“neediest of the needy,” those for whom no other resources exist.
Service to individuals and families in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles is the Cardinal McIntyre Fund’s highest priority.
Provision of food, shelter, one-time assistance to families in crises:
such as assistance with medical, funeral expenses, are appropriate as
funds allow and as recommended by those who are familiar with the
area/persons.
In other words, the “Fund” provides emergency help to persons who
have nowhere else to go.

PADRE SERRA PRESENTS
Fr. Jim Clarke Celebrates the Catholic Mass in
“Slow-Motion”
Sometimes a slowed-down version of the Roman Catholic Mass
gives people the opportunity to understand and reflect more deeply
on the meaning and significance of the prayers, gestures and
scripture readings that form the basis of this most sacred liturgical
rite. Fr. Jim Clarke, Director of Spiritual Formation at St. John’s
Seminary, will celebrate a “Mass in Slow-Motion” on Wednesday,
May 6, 2015, at 7:00 pm, at Padre Serra Catholic Church. He will
present an overview of ways in which the Mass has developed over
the centuries, as well as demonstrating a more mindful approach
that can lead to more active and full participation in the worship
experience.

KINDRED HEARTS MINISTRIES PRESENTS:
May 6th The Gift of Listening – A Gift of Love
In a world full of technology, quick text replies and much talk, we
attend to what it means to foster listening skills in effective
communication. Real listening is more than hearing; it is being
present to the other in ways that communicate, “What you have to
say is important to me because I respect you and you are
important to me.” We listen with mind, heart, soul and body! We
will explore various aspects of listening including how we listen
to God and how God listens to us.
May, 13th The Prayer of Petition
"Until now you have not asked," Jesus says to us.
Perhaps we are stuck trying to understand the prayer of asking. We
do not wish to bother God with our trivia, given how much He
needs to attend to the bigger issues of our world! How wrong this
is. We sell God short, as if He is too limited to handle our human
needs and desires. St. Paul reminds us: “Don’t worry about
anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need,
always asking Him with a thankful heart. ” Philippians 4.6
We will explore various aspects of this prayer, aware that it is a
prayer flowing from deep faith and trust in God’s goodness and
provident care.
