FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK…


Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

The lord is truly risen!


The victory of the Risen One, Jesus Christ over sin and death is our victory. All the events of our Lord’s public life ultimately lead to His RESURRECTION…This central revealed mystery and truth of our faith has been faithfully handed down, passed on from one generation of believers to another. The Church which Christ founded will always joyfully proclaim that this historical event which was seen by more than 500 witnesses who (see 1 Cor 15:6) experienced with their own eyes the sight of the glorious resurrected Lord, is our hope…
Today, in a world where so much sin and darkness has blinded the hearts of many--sadness, fear, and a resignation to “give up” can paralyze us. 2000 years ago, the same “lack of hope” and “trust” in Christ gripped no less than the Apostles.
“Afterward he appeared to the eleven themselves as they sat at the table and he upbraided them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who saw him after he had risen.” (Mark 16:14)
Our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI has said on a number of occasions that to give in to a spirit of pessimision and negativity, even in a world which seems overrun by sin tragedy, war, radical changes in the society such as the breakdown of married and family life etc, is a lack of hope and trust in the RESURRECTION.
Christ’s rising from the dead on Easter Sunday is an eternal triumph. The powers of hell are forever defeated. If we are faithful to the Holy Gospel and truly love Jesus our Risen Lord and Saviour with all our hearts, we will share in His glory when we will rise body and soul on the last day, when he comes again at the end of the world.
Yes, it seems like the world is shrouded in darkness…Even many Catholics no longer go to Mass on Sunday and live a life completely indifferent and estranged from Our Lord.
The darkness is always overcome by the light. Shine a light in a dark room and it is no longer completely dark.
“This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him is no darkness.” (1 John 1:5)
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Nor do men light a lamp and out it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5: 14-16)
Yes, united to Christ, in his friendship, deeply in love with him---you by the power of the resurrected Christ will by the glory of his LIGHT, penetrate and convert the hearts of many who are still in darkness.
Three years ago, our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI eloquently spoke of the importance of a deep faith in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead to give us an unwavering hope that He has forever triumphed over the forces of evil:

“It is important to reaffirm this fundamental truth of our faith whose historical veracity is amply documented even if today, as in the past, there are many who in various ways cast doubt on it or even deny it. The enfeeblement of faith in the Resurrection of Jesus results in weakening the witness of believers. In fact, should the Church's faith in the Resurrection weaken, everything will come to a halt, everything will disintegrate. On the contrary, the adherence of heart and mind to the dead and Risen Christ changes the life and brightens the entire existence of people and peoples. Is it not the certainty that Christ is risen which instils courage, prophetic daring and perseverance in martyrs of every epoch? Is it not the encounter with the living Jesus that converts and fascinates so many men and women who from the beginnings of Christianity have continued to leave all things to follow him and put their own lives at the service of the Gospel? "If Christ has not been raised", the Apostle Paul said, "then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain" (I Cor 15: 14). But he was raised!


The proclamation we listen to constantly in these days is exactly this: Jesus is risen, he is the Living One and we can encounter him; just as the women who had gone to the tomb met him on the third day, the day after the Sabbath; just as the disciples encountered him, surprised and dismayed by what the women had told them; just as so many other witnesses met him during the days following his Resurrection. And after his Ascension, Jesus also continued to be present among his friends as he had promised: "Lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age" (Mt 28: 20). The Lord is with us, with his Church, until the end of time. Illumined by the Holy Spirit, the members of the early Church began to proclaim the announcement of Easter openly and fearlessly. And this announcement, passed on from one generation to the next, has come down to us and every year at Easter rings out with ever new power.” (From General Audience: Wednesday, March 26, 2008)

Del Buró Del Párroco

¡Aleluya! ¡aleluya! ¡aleluya! el señor ha realmente resucitado!


La victoria del Resucitado, Jesucristo sobre el pecado y la muerte es nuestra victoria. Todos los eventos de la vida pública de nuestro Señor culminaron en su RESURRECCIÓN…Este misterio central revelado y la verdad de nuestra fe ha sido fielmente pasada de una generación de creyentes a otra. La Iglesia que Cristo fundó siempre alegremente proclamará que este evento histórico, vista por más de 500 testigos que (ve 1 Cor 15:6) vieron con sus propios ojos la vista del Señor resucitado, es nuestra esperanza.
Hoy, en un mundo donde tanto pecado y oscuridad ha cegado los corazones de muchos---la tristeza, el miedo, y una resignación de “darnos por vencidos” nos puede paralizar. 2000 años atrás, la misma “falta de esperanza” y “confianza” en Cristo se apoderó nada más ni nada menos que de los Apóstoles.
“Después se apareció a los once mismos cuando estaban sentados a la mesa, y los reprendió por su incredulidad y dureza de corazón, porque no habían creído a los que le habían visto resucitado.” (Marcos 16:14)
Nuestro Santo Papa Benedicto XVI ha dicho en varias ocasiones que caer en un espíritu permisivo y de negatividad, incluso en un mundo que parece ser guiado por tragedias del pecado, guerras, cambios radicales en la sociedad como la ruptura de la vida del matrimonio y la familia es una falta de esperanza y confianza en la RESURRECCIÓN.
La resurrección de Cristo de entre los muertos el Domingo de Pascua es un triunfo eterno. El poder del infierno es para siempre derrotado. Si somos fieles al Santo Evangelio y realmente amamos a Jesús Nuestro Señor Resucitado y Salvador con todo nuestros corazones, compartiremos en Su gloria cuando seamos alzados en cuerpo y alma en el último día, cuando venga de nuevo en el final del mundo.
Si, parece que el mundo está envuelto en oscuridad…Incluso muchos Católicos no van a Misa los Domingos y viven una vida completamente indiferente y enajenada de Nuestro Señor.
La oscuridad es siempre superada por la luz. Brilla una luz en un cuarto oscuro y el cuarto ya no esta completamente oscuro.
“Y este es el mensaje que hemos oído de El y que os anunciamos: Dios es luz, y en El no hay tiniebla alguna.” (1 Juan 1:5)
“Vosotros sois la luz del mundo. Una ciudad situada sobre un monte no se puede ocultar; ni se enciende una lámpara y se pone debajo de un almud, sino sobre el candelero, y alumbra a todos los que están en la casa. Así brille vuestra luz delante de los hombres, para que vean vuestras buenas acciones y glorifiquen a vuestro Padre que está en los cielos.” (Mateo 5: 14-16)
Sí, unidos a Jesucristo, en su amistad, profundamente enamorado con Él—tu por medio del poder del Cristo resucitado podrá con la gloria de su LUZ, penetrar y convertir los corazones de muchos que siguen en la oscuridad.
Tres años atrás, nuestro Santo Papa Benedicto XVI elocuentemente habló de la importancia de la fe profunda en la resurrección de Jesucristo de entre los muertos para darnos una esperanza inquebrantable que El ha por siempre triunfado sobres las fuerzas del mal:
“Es importante reafirmar esta verdad fundamental de nuestra fe, cuya verdad histórica está ampliamente documentada, aunque hoy, como en el pasado, no faltan quienes de formas diversas la ponen en duda o incluso la niegan. El debilitamiento de la fe en la resurrección de Jesús
