SECOND SUNDAY OF EASTER
SEGUNDO DOMINGO DE LA PASCUA
In today’s Gospel, the risen Jesus appears to his disciples. Thomas
was absent and couldn’t believe when the others told him that
they had seen Jesus. He had to touch the wounds in Jesus’ hands
and side, then he believed. Thomas’ experience must become
ours. We must strive to make tangible the power of the
resurrection in our lives. We must allow the power of the Lord
to heal the wounds begotten by oppression. May we so live that
Jesus becomes for us, “My Lord and my God!”
En el Evangelio de hoy, Jesús resucitado aparece a sus discípulos.
Tomás fue ausente y no podía creer cuando los otros le dijeron
que habían visto a Jesús. Tenía que tocar a las heridas en las
manos y a su lado, entonces creyó. La experiencia de Tomás debe
de llegar a ser la nuestra. Debemos esforzarnos por hacer
palpable el poder de la resurrección en nuestras vidas. Debemos
dejar que el poder del Señor sane las heridas engendradas por la
opresión. Que vivamos para que Jesús llegue a ser por nosotros,
“¡Mi Señor y mi Dios!”
We reached 75% of our goal by Easter,
so we are extending our goal of 800 to
Pentecost Sunday, May 24. If you have

PASTORAL MESSAGE
La Comunidad Católica de Sta. Ana

MENSAJE PASTORAL
The secret of happiness is not in getting what we want, but in loving what we have; not in what we ask
of life, but in what it gives us. It is the hidden joy of thanking the world for all of the simple and
wonderful things it has given us. Recognize the great and the small, the fleeting and the enduring not the quantity, but the essential; not the abundant but the wonderful.
You will feel poor, not by how little you have, but by how much you expect and demand of life. The
more we desire, the poorer we will be, since not all things were made for us. True wealth is in
recognizing and appreciating the little and sweet things that life gives us.
Be thankful, therefore, every moment of your life. You can have everything with the wisdom of your
heart. Human wealth is in what one loves. The greatest treasure is the one in our hearts. No one can
steal or buy the fortune deep inside you.
Appreciate the joy of seeing a dawn, for one day you may not be able to see it. Give thanks to the Father for the love you
have found, because tomorrow you may not have it. Give thanks for the singing birds, the greenery of the mountains,
the laughter of a child, the light in your beloved’s eyes, for your parents, your children, for the life you have today, for
the little or much health you have, for your wife; your husband. Because this will be the only thing you have left at the
end of your days. Discover the joy of being thankful for all the beauty that has been given to you.
El secreto de la felicidad no está en obtener lo que anhelamos, sino en amar lo que tenemos; no en lo que pedimos a la
vida, sino en lo que ésta nos otorga. Es la dicha escondida de agradecer al mundo todo lo simple y lo maravilloso que
éste nos ha dado. Reconocer lo grande y lo pequeño, lo fugaz y lo perdurable. No lo mucho, sino lo esencial. No lo
tanto, sino lo maravilloso.
Te sentirás pobre no por lo poco que tengas, sino por lo mucho que esperes y exijas a la vida. Entre más ambicionamos
más pobres seremos, pues no todas las cosas fueron hechas para uno. La riqueza verdadera está en reconocer y valorar lo
poco y lo dulce que la existencia nos otorgue.
Agradece, por tanto, todos los instantes de tu vida. Puedes poseerlo todo con la sabiduría del corazón. La riqueza del
humano está en lo que ama. El mayor tesoro es el que está en nuestro corazón. La fortuna de tus profundidades nadie
puede robarla ni comprarla.
Agradece la dicha de ver un amanecer, pues un día ya no lo verás. Da gracias al Padre por el amor que encontraste, pues
mañana ya no lo tendrás. El canto de las aves, el verdor de los montes, la risa de un niño, la luz de los ojos amados, por
tus padres, por tus hijos, por la vida que hoy tienes, por la poca o mucha salud que tienes, por tu esposa;
tu esposo. Porque será lo único que te quede al final de los días. Conoce la dicha de agradecer lo bello
que se te ha dado.

Jesus meets the need of each disciple. To the fearful in the upper room, He speaks words of peace. To doubting Thomas, He
provides the tangible proof of His resurrection. What do I have to share that might meet someone else’s need?
(Our Sunday Visitor, ibid., page 9)
Jesús responde a la necesidad de cada discípulo. A los miedosos en la sala superior, Él habla palabras de paz. Al incrédulo Tomás, Él
provee la prueba tangible de Su resurrección. ¿Qué tengo yo para compartir que pueda responder a la necesidad de otra persona?

93 year legacy of providing healthcare for

each person. The Clinic is a ministry of
the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston
and a United Way Agency and was
founded in 1922 by Msgr. George T.
Walsh to combat the rising rate of infant
mortality in the Mexican community in
his parish. With $50 from the Charity
Guild of Catholic Women and volunteer
providers and nurses from the
community, San José Clinic began the
mission that is still in place 93 years later.

daily prayers the healing of victims of
abuse and all who suffer in any way.

Easter is the principal feast of the
ecclesiastical year. Leo I (Sermo xlvii in Exodum) calls it the
greatest feast (festum festorum), and says that Christmas is
celebrated only in preparation for Easter. It is the center of the
greater part of the ecclesiastical year. The order of Sundays from
Septuagesima to the last Sunday after Pentecost, the feast of the
Ascension, Pentecost, Corpus Christi, and all other movable feasts, from that of the
Prayer of Jesus in the Garden (Tuesday after Septuagesima ) to the feast of the Sacred
Heart (Friday after the octave of Corpus Christi ), depend upon the Easter date.

ST. ANNE SCHOOL NEWS
Dear St. Anne Parishioners,
Thank you for your generosity to the St.
Anne Catholic School Annual Fund. Over
these past few weeks of our inaugural
campaign, your support has been invaluable. Your help, both financially and with
your prayers, has brought us closer to
reaching our goal. The school has been a
part of our parish for almost 85 years and
it would not have weathered the storms
without the support of the parish. Your
financial support helps us to ensure that
we can continue to teach children.
As a community of 500+ students, we
will be able to incorporate more technology into the classrooms, offer more professional development opportunities to
the faculty and staff and offer more avenues for students to shine in the arts. The
early childhood students are using some
incredible apps that allow them to read
aloud a book with their parents and
record the reading for the teachers to
evaluate fluency the next day. In the elementary school, the first and second
grade students had a live presentation
from Flat Stanley after reading about his

NOTICIAS DE LA ESCUELA SANTA ANA
adventures. In the junior high, our students are preparing for the production of
Annie in early May. All of these great
activities and events happen with the generosity of parishioners who support St.
Anne Catholic School.
Thank you again, St. Anne Catholic Community. We could not have done this
without you.
Estimados Feligreses de Sta. Ana,
Gracias por su generosidad al Fondo
Anual de la Escuela Católica de Sta. Ana.
Por las pasadas semanas de nuestra primera campaña, su apoyo ha sido muy
valioso. Con su ayuda, tanto financiera
como con sus oraciones, nos hemos acercado a nuestra meta. La escuela ha sido
parte de nuestra parroquia por casi 85
años y no hubiera resistido la tormenta sin
el apoyo de la parroquia. Su apoyo financiero nos ayuda a asegurar que podemos
continuar enseñando a los niños.
Como una comunidad de más de 500
estudiantes, vamos a ser capases de incorporar más tecnología en las aulas, ofrecer
más oportunidades de desarrollo profesional a la facultad y el personal y ofrecer
más vías para que los estudiantes brillen
en las artes. Los estudiantes de la primera
están utilizando algunas aplicaciones
increíbles que les permiten leer un libro
WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR
VOCATIONS
en voz alta con sus padres y grabar la lectura para que los maestros puedan evaluar
la fluidez al siguiente día. En la primaria,
los estudiantes de primero y segundo grados tuvieron una presentación en vivo de
Flat Stanley después de leer sobre sus
aventuras. En junior high, nuestros estudiantes se están preparando para la producción de “Annie” a principios de mayo.
Todas estas grandiosas actividades y eventos se hacen posibles con la generosidad
de feligreses que apoyan a la Escuela
Católica de Sta. Ana.
Una vez más, gracias a la Comunidad
Católica de Sta. Ana. No habríamos
podido lograr esto sin ustedes.

VOCATION PRAYER FOR THE FAMILY
ORACIÓN DE VOCACIÓN POR LA FAMILIA
Heavenly Father, help us to model our families after the simple, prayerful life of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Help us to make
our homes true domestic churches that are fertile soil for the
vocations You have ordained from all eternity, to flourish.
Give us hearts grateful for vocations to the priesthood and religious life from among our children. May we encourage them
to pray for God’s will, knowing that in responding to Your
will is where they will be happiest and most fulfilled.
Padre Divino, ayúdanos a modelar nuestras familias según la
vida simple, piadosa de Jesús, María y José Ayúdanos que de
nuestros hogares hagamos iglesias domésticas verdaderas que
son terreno fértil para las vocaciones que Tú has ordenado
desde toda la eternidad, para florecer. Danos corazones agradecidos por las vocaciones al sacerdocio y la vida religiosa
entre nuestros hijos. Que podamos animarlos a orar por la
voluntad de Dios, sabiendo que en la respuesta a Tu voluntad
es donde estarán más felices y más plenos.
