Second Sunday of Easter (or of Divine Mercy)
Second Sunday Easter
(Divine Mercy Sunday)
April 12, 2015
Who indeed is the victor over the world but the one
who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
— 1 John 5:5
SEEKING
Easter Sunday is a day all about seeking. The
early Christian communities gathered around the
Apostles, seeking more about the life and ministry of
the Lord Jesus. Saint Paul told the baptized
Colossians to “seek what is above.” Mary of
Magdala went to the tomb, seeking to find the Lord’s
body so that she could anoint it. We come to church
on Easter Sunday seeking many things. For some
of us, this is a once‑a‑year journey, when we seek
connection with the foundations of the Christian
faith. For others, this day is the culmination of a long
journey of Lenten repentance. For the newly
baptized, this is the first day of a new life filled with
promise and expectation. Whatever it is that we
seek, let us be inspired by the disciple whom Jesus
loved who, when he saw the wrappings of cloth
inside the empty tomb, “saw and believed.”

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
Our tradition has a way of honoring age-old
customs, and is patient with how practices unfold in
different places. The name of today’s feast
illustrates this well. English is a Germanic language,
and our word “Easter,” or German “Oester,” points
back to the pagan goddess Eoestre, the star of the
vernal equinox feast. The Greek title “Pasch”
reaches back in a more helpful manner to the
Hebrew “Pesach,” or “Passover.” “Paschal Triduum”
may be slow to replace “Easter” in our vocabulary,
but it is clearer about the mystery we celebrate
today, the culmination of three days laden with
mystery and meaning.
You can hear the older term, and the resistance
to English influence, in the Irish “Casca” and
Scottish “Pask.” Romance languages stay close to
the deep paschal tradition, with the French
“Pâques,” Spanish “Pascua” and Italian “Pasqua.”
Memories of our pagan past with “Oester” will not
soon fade away: even Japanese Christians are
under her spell, for today’s feast is called “ I-suta.”
Swahili, a young language, takes the more
traditional route with “Pasaka.” Each language yields
a rich insight into the feast. Spanish includes a
sense that today is a “big Sunday” by adding the
designation “Pascua” to the greatest feasts, such as
“Pascua de la Natividad” (Christmas). Once Christ is
risen, every step of life’s journey is illuminated by
the light of the Pasch!

A CHEERFUL GIVER
A cheerful giver does not count the cost of what
he gives. His heart is set on pleasing and cheering
the one to whom the gift is given.

¿Quién es el que vence al mundo? Sólo el
que cree que Jesús es el Hijo de Dios.
— 1 Juan 5:5
.
UN SOLO CORAZÓN Y UNA SOLA ALMA
Al leer sobre la fe de las primeras comunidades
de creyentes puede ser fuente de gran inspiración
para los que han sido cristianos por largo tiempo,
como también para los que acaban de ser
bautizados. ¿Te puedes imaginar a gente de hoy
que “tiene un solo corazón y una sola alma” igual
que la primera comunidad de creyentes? La primera
carta de san Juan que leemos hoy es la clave que
nos dice cómo podemos lograrlo. Si guardamos los
mandamientos de Dios y si amamos a todos los
hijos de Dios parece ser la base de poder tener un
“un solo corazón y una sola alma”. Vivimos en un
mundo que recalca las diferencias –ya sean entre
religiones, razas, géneros y clases. Hoy se nos pide
que nos enfoquemos en lo que tenemos en común
en este frágil planeta que ocupamos.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
En tiempos pasados, cuando la misa era en latín,
no teníamos la oportunidad de escuchar en nuestro
propio idioma las bellas palabras que Cristo
pronunció durante la Última Cena y que el sacerdote
repite durante la Consagración: “Esto es mi
cuerpo”… “Esta es mi sangre”. Por tal razón los
monaguillos sonaban unas campanitas indicando que
algo importante estaba pasando. En ese momento
los fieles levantábamos la cabeza para ver el pan
convertido en cuerpo y el vino convertido en sangre.
Lamentablemente el sacerdote nos daba la espalda y
no podíamos ver lo que ocurría sobre el altar. Sin
embargo, respondíamos con las palabras del apóstol
Tomás: “Señor mío y Dios mío”.
Estas palabras reconocen y adoran la presencia
de Jesús en el pan y el vino. A este momento se le
consideraba el más importante de la misa. No
obstante, el Concilio Vaticano II vino a enseñarnos que
este es el momento cumbre, junto con toda la Plegaria
Eucarística, pues toda la misa es igualmente
importante, excepto que durante la Plegaria
Eucarística alcanzamos el punto más alto de la
celebración. Por esa razón ya no hay campanita, pues
ahora escuchamos todo en nuestro propio idioma, así
como los discípulos las escucharon de Cristo, en su
propio idioma. —Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright © J. S. Paluch
