Me has enseñado el sendero de la vida y me saciarás de gozo en tu presencia.
-Hechos 2:28

Un Solo Pan Como este pan dividido fue esparcido sobre las montañas, y fue recogido y llegó a ser uno, que así también tu Iglesia sea recogida desde los confines de la tierra en tu Reino.

En El Camino Una metáfora importante que se emplea para describer la vida cristiana es la de una peregrinación. En la segunda lectura de hoy, Pedro se dirige a la primera comunidad cristiana: “Vivan siempre con temor filial durante su peregrinar por la tierra” (1 Pedro 1:17). Al pensar en una peregrinación, normalmente se nos ocurre algún tipo de movimiento del punto A al punto B. La peregrinación cristiana, que comenzó en las aguas del bautismo (punto A) tiene como destino final la vida eternal con Dios en el cielo (punto B). Desafortunadamente, en el transcurso tomamos todo tipo de desvíos. Debido al pecado, tontamente nos desviamos y a veces parecemos incapaces de detector la presencia del Señor. Hoy, el relato de los dos discípulos camino a Emaús ilustra el hecho de que, aunque nos sentamos abatidos y muy desviados, el Señor está allí, caminado junto a nosotros.

Tradiciones de Nueste Fe Vicente Ferrer, patrón de los obreros de la construcción, falleció el 5 de abril de 1419. Este santo varón nació en Valencia, España, en 1350, vivió y predicó el Evangelio en una época muy difícil del cristianismo. Además de la peste, guerras y otros problemas socials, la Iglesia estaba dividida por dos o tres hombres que insistían ser el verdadero Papa. Vicente, un religioso dominico, dedicó su vida a reconstruir la Iglesia promoviendo la virtud de la caridad interna y externa mediante una predicación que relacionaba la palabra de Dios con la vida cotidiana. Vicente se valía de la teología, poesía, repetición y otros medios para inculcar la sabiduría bíblica en sus oyentes. De esta manera supo construer la fe tanto en los fieles y en la Iglesia como comunidad. Los cuadros de este santo español normalmente lo presentan con una llama ardiente en una mano y en la otra, con una Biblia abierta. De esta manero los artistas subrayan el amor ardiente que los cristianos debemos tener por la palabra de Dios, un amor que Vicente edificaba en el corazón de los fieles.
-Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM

Felicitaciones a todos los jóvenes en su Confirmación Te pedimos, Señor, que continúes favoreciendo a estos hijos tuyos a quienes has ungido con el don del Espíritu Santo y has alimentado con el sacramento de tu Hijo; haz que, superando las dificultades de la vida, alegren con su santidad a la Iglesia y, por medio de sus obras y de su amor, la hagan crecer en el mundo. Por Jesucristo nuestro Señor.

Reconocimiento Un agradecimiento especial a Maria Routsis
por su dedicación, tiempo y motivación a los jóvenes en su preparación para el Sacramento de la Confirmación. Su testimonio es gratamente apreEntrada ¿Qué mejor manera para entrar tiene el Señor Jesucristo que a través de un corazón roto?
-Oscar Wilde

Thank You Children & Youth
$535.00 raised for our Faith Moving Forward Capital Campaign
On Palm Sunday, some of our parish children presented a Treasure Chest at collection time. This Treasure Chest represented the nickels, dimes and quarters collected during the weeks leading up to the Capital Campaign in the Faith Formation classrooms and the St. Andrew School classrooms. The children were educated about the purpose of the Faith Moving Forward Campaign by the Children & Youth Team and were then asked to participate by making a sacrifice of their own. What a gift these children are to our parish. As we focus on the future needs of the parish, it is important to treasure the children that also make up the future. It is for our children and those that come after us that we make this sacrifice in our own Faith Moving Forward journey.

Thanks Kids!

Pope Benedict XVI’s Third Encyclical
Pope Benedict XVI’s third encyclical will discuss Catholic social teaching, touching on issues as varied as poverty, peace, wars, international cooperation, energy sources, and globalization. The encyclical will be titled Caritas in Veritate, Love In Truth. Caritas in Veritate will be Pope Benedict’s third encyclical. His first encyclical, Deus Caritas Est, examined the virtue of love while the second, Spe Salvi, focused upon the virtue of hope. The four-chapter encyclical will no longer be published May 1 as previously planned, but will be delayed so that translations, especially the Chinese translation, may be completed. The decision to offer a Chinese version of the encyclical comes at a time when Pope Benedict is seeking to improve relations with the Chinese government. Last June, he sent a letter offering dialogue with Chinese authorities. In September, Chinese priest Father Joseph Li Shan was installed as bishop of Beijing with the approval of the Pope, an event that has not happened in fifty years.
