THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER
WORSHIP
ENCOUNTER THE JOY OF THE GOSPEL
Year Two: Focus on the Domestic Church –Marriage & Family
Third Sunday of Easter
There are many people we admire or revere whom we will never see in
person: athletes, artists, actors, etc. We enjoy their work and accomplishments and read about their lives in books and magazines. We sometimes get so involved in who they are that we almost feel like we know
them. We may be their biggest fans and then share our love of them with
others. We do all of this, yet we have never even see them in the flesh
with our own eyes.
Some think this is the way with Jesus. They believe he is the Son of God
and the savior of the world, but he is still someone up in heaven, and we
will get a chance to see him "for real" when we die or when he comes
again. They may even say that until those times occur, he resides only in
our hearts.
But those in the Gospels saw who he was in the breaking of the bread.
And today, in 2015, he is here in our midst for all eyes to see. He is here
really and truly every time we break the bread. There is no need for
worship from afar. Just open your eyes. ©Liturgical Publications Inc.
Deacon Corner: (By Deacon Al) May is our traditional month dedicated to Mary, our Blessed Mother. Our Blessed Mother has told us that
the rosary is a needed and powerful form of prayer. This is a brief history of our rosary. The rosary is a form of combined prayer and meditation that has been around for over 1200 years. The origin of the rosary
dates back to the ninth century where Irish monks would recite and
chant the 150 Psalms of the Bible. People living near the monasteries
were drawn towards this devotion and were eager to join in with the
monks' prayers. Unfortunately the psalms were very hard to memorize
and printed copies of the psalms were not readily available. It was suggested to the people outside the monastery that they recite a series of
150 "Our Father" prayers in place of the psalms. This form of devotion
became very popular and people devised methods to keep track of their
prayers. At first, 150 little pebbles were placed inside small leather
pouches to keep count. Then a thin rope having 50 knots, repeated three
times, was used instead. Eventually, the instrument of choice became
the use of string with small pieces of wood. In later years, the Irish
monks traveled throughout Europe and brought this form of devotion
with them. In some areas, both clergy and lay people began to recite the
"Angelic Salutation" (the first part of what we now know as the "Hail
Mary") as part of this devotion. The popularity of this prayer led to the
adoption of 50 Angelic Salutations being said for each piece of wood or
knot on the prayer string. It is believed that in the year 1214, that the
Church received the Rosary in its present form we use today. It was
given to the Church by Saint Dominic who had received it from the
Blessed Virgin as a powerful means of prayer.
Worship Corner
Mary App:
The Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception have released the
MARY APP. This FREE app offers a complete resource for information on the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus, in an easy to navigate format. The app has three main chapters with these features: doctrine, devotion, and Mary Plus. Mary’s whole task is to lead
people closer to Jesus. The more we get to know her and have a fervent
devotion to her, the better she can lead us to her Son. For this reason, the
Second Vatican Council states, “Everyone should have a genuine devotion to (Mary) and entrust his life to her motherly care.”
EWTN
Daily rosary: 9:30pm
May 19th Holy Hour (7:00pm) – Rosary and meditation
CHRISTIAN FORMATION
Believe Out Loud! Live Your Faith!
After-L.I.F.E.
At the top of the mountain God says, "This is my beloved son. LISTEN
to him.” This covenant, Jesus, is God’s final covenant with the people.
“Listen to him.”
We follow Jesus into the waters of baptism. We make a personal covenant with God. Lent reminds us to prepare to renew our baptismal promises at Easter. A time to reflect and renew. Do I live my life according to
the Gospels? Do I “listen to him”?

your sons and daughters in the family of the Church.
May your grace and love help our families in every part of the world be united in
one another in fidelity to the Gospel.
May the example of the Holy Family, with the aid of your Holy Spirit, guide all

and to always seek your truth and live in your love.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen Jesus, Mary and Joseph Pray for us!

LOS ESTUDIANTES ESPAÑOLES NECESITAN FAMILIAS DE
HOSPEDAJE - a fin de junio
Tenga una experiencia increíble este verano! Dele hospedaje a un estudiante de España (edades 13-17) en su casa por 4 semanas. Aprenda acerca
de su cultura mientras que él o ella aprende acerca de la vida en una familia
americana. Ellos van a las clases y hacen turismo por el día (de 8:30 a 4:30)
durante las horas de trabajo.
El resto del tiempo ellos solamente quieren ser parte de su familia
haciendo lo que hacen y viajando donde quiera que vayan.
Las familias recibirán becas para ayudar con los gastos y los estudiantes
tendrán su propio dinero para gastar en las actividades. Tenemos ayuda con
transporte o vacaciones. Esta será una
experiencia enriquecedora para toda la familia!

REFLEXIONES
3er Domingo de Pascua
El pasaje del Evangelio de este domingo da continuación al de
los discípulos de Emaús, y tiene una frase de mucha importancia:
"Les abrió el entendimiento para que comprendieran las Escrituras". Es importante tener esto en mente, nosotros, y aquellas personas que se sienten iluminadas y creen entender las Escrituras
de modo personal. Hoy Jesús nos afirma que no podemos comprender las Escrituras si el Señor resucitado no nos da una apertura de mente y corazón. Y les dijo: "Esta escrito que el Mesías
tenía que padecer y había de resucitar de entre los muertos al
tercer día". Les abrió, pues, los ojos a los discípulos de Emaús.
Para nosotros esto debe de significar un compromiso de leerlas
con ojos nuevos. ¿Comprendemos esto?
Jesús nos enseña a mirar, nos ayuda a hacer caso de su palabra y
nos invita a amar a Dios. O sea, nos guía a hacer camino con él,
ser discípulos del Resucitado y compartir la mesa de la Eucaristía. El Señor Jesús da luz nueva a nuestros corazones y nos
abre perspectivas sobre la realidad que vivimos, especialmente
sobre personas y acontecimientos concretos. Las tres lecturas nos
invitan a la conversión y al perdón. Dios nos mueve a esto, pues
perdona nuestros pecados mediante la muerte y resurrección de
su Hijo, sin olvidar que la resurrección de Cristo se experimenta
por medio de la fe. Nuestra búsqueda, de tal manera, se debe
enfocar en la experiencia: es así que nuestra fe se desarrollará.
Por esa razón es importante seguir compartiendo nuestra fe con
los recién bautizados. Pidámonosle al Señor en esta Eucaristía lo
siguiente: ¡Señor, ábrenos el entendimiento ante cada acontecimiento que nos suceda!
