What: Easter Message
Easter Greetings to everyone! We continue our
spiritual journey and ministry during the Easter
Season mindful of the blessings the Risen Christ
brings to us- renewed faith, hope and joy. The spirit
of joy emanates from the compassion and mercy of
God made manifest in Christ's suffering, death and
resurrection. Pope Francis puts emphasis on this by
declaring a Jubilee Year of Mercy so that the
Church may offer more evident signs of God's
presence and closeness and to rediscover the
meaning of the mission entrusted to her by the Lord
on the day of Easter: to be a sign and an instrument of
the Father's mercy.
The Motto is: "Merciful as the Father." with a strong
call fur works of corporal and spiritual mercy in
order to reawaken our conscience that has grown
indifferent to the poverty around and to enter more
deeply into the heart of the Gospel where the poor
have a special experience of God's mercy. Our
Holy Father encourages us to open our hearts to
God who never tires of extending mercy and ever
patient in offering compassion, pardon and comfort
to everyone and share his love with us. He wishes
that the Jubilee of Mercy may help us carry out in
our daily lives the mercy which the Father
constantly extends to all of us.
Finally, we continue to celebrate the Year of
Consecrated Life as declared by Pope Francis in
order to honor the women and men who fulfill their
baptismal vocation by formally consecrating their
lives to service, prayer and care for others. Our
brothers and sisters living consecrated lives make
great contributions to our society through a vast
number of ministries: teach in our schools; take care
of the poor and the sick; bring compassion and the
love of Christ to those ignored by society; others
lead lives of prayer in contemplation for the world.
This is a great time to thank them for their faithful
service to God and to the Church as well as to
emphasize the importance of the religious vocation.
So please take note of the coming celebrations in
our pastoral region in their honor.
Pope Francis issued the Papal Bull "Misericordiae
Vultus" convoking the Extraordinary Jubilee of
Mercy which coincides with the 50th anniversary
of the closing of the Vatican H Ecumenical
Council. The Year of Divine Mercy begins on
December 8'\ the Feast of the Immaculate
Conception and concludes on the Solemnity of
Christ the King on 20 November 2016. The Holy
Blessings to all!”
Father envisions tl1ias a year of blessing where we
can experience the warmth of God's love m:d tender
mercy. Transformed by His mercy, we are called to
be witnesses of God's grace, instruments of His
mercy to bring healing, forgiveness and reconciliation
to everyone.
A special feature of this Jubilee Year is that it will
be celebrated not only in Rome but also in all the
other dioceses of the world. Pope Francis continues
the teaching of St. John XXUI, who spoke of the
"medicine of Mercy", and of Paul VI who identified
the spirituality of Vatican U with that of the

Today’s Readings
First Reading — There is no salvation through anyone
else (Acts 4:8-12).
Psalm — The stone rejected by the builders has become
the cornerstone (Psalm 118).
Second Reading — See what love the Father has
bestowed on us that we may be called the children of God
(1 John 3:1-2).
Gospel — The good shepherd lays down his life for the
sheep (John 10:11-18).
Treasures from Tradition
Many of our customs surrounding
critical illness come from antiquity, and
yet attitudes have certainly changed.
Death was an all too-familiar presence
then, and people tended to see it as a
natural and unavoidable part of life, not
a personal catastrophe. People tried to review their lives,
settle their affairs, say farewell to their dear ones, and
welcome the deathbed vigils and prayers that assured them
of God’s love and forgiveness. What people most feared
was sudden death. It was dreaded and never discussed.
The faithful filled the catacombs with consoling
images of the good shepherd carrying the sheep to safe
pasture, or the faithful in glory seated at banquet tables.
The prayer texts from the time are consoling and positive,
and many inspired our modern prayers. The care of the
dying flowed directly from Roman pagan practice; it was
home based and family centered. Pagans didn’t
especially fear death, but they were terrified by the dead.
Christians, on the other hand, consoled their sick with
psalms of joy and faith in the Resurrection. The goal was
to assure the sick person of God’s love, and that the ties
that bind the dead and the living would endure.

Eucharistic Holy Hour
The only time our Lord asked the Apostles for
anything was the night He went into agony. Not for
activity did He plead but for an Hour of
companionship. Every Wednesday there is a Holy
Hour in the church from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
Within the hour there is a rosary with beautiful
reflections, the chaplet of Divine Mercy, and time
for silent adoration and Benediction. Please come and spend one
hour with Jesus. This is a time of abundant blessings for all!

The Good Shepherd
This Fourth Sunday of Easter is traditionally referred to as
“Good Shepherd Sunday.” Today we listen to the words of the
Lord as he refers to himself as the “good shepherd who lays
down his life for the sheep.” It is sometimes so difficult for us
to grasp the reality that anyone would lay down his or her own
life for the sake of someone else. This is especially true in a
society that places high value on power and personal
advancement, often at the cost of “trampling” on other people
in order to climb the ladder. Today’s scriptures point to the
one we are called to emulate—the one who lays down his life
for his sheep. Today’s scriptures challenge us to discover
ways to bring life to those around us—to build up rather than
to tear down.
