LOS LIBROS DE LA IGLESIA
Los libros que se encuenten en las puertas de la Iglesia son para el uso de la Misa
que usted está asistiendo-no es para su uso
personal en casa-. Mucha gente se lleva
un libro de la Iglesia y es por
eso que otras muchas personas
no los tienen para la Misa cuando asisten.
Si quiere meditar en las lecturas, tome un Boletín, éste
tiene las citas y las lecturas y
las puede buscar en su propia biblia.

Easter 2015
Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Risen Lord:
How changed is the world this Easter morn! How wondrous the truth on the lips of His faithful disciples! Can there
be any chant more beautiful, any news more desired, any heart that could seek for more? Jesus Christ is Risen! It is
true! He is Risen! Alleluia!
The long Lent of human history was ended that first Easter Sunday morn when Mary Magdalen discovered that the
tomb was empty and the body of her beloved Lord was missing. But that body, cruelly put to death on the tree of
Calvary, was not missing. It was transformed! It was glorified! For the Son of God made man fulfilled His destiny
on this earth and so transformed our destiny from sin and death to life in Him, life eternal.
You and I are the recipients of the long journey of love that Jesus travelled from Galilee to Jerusalem, from birth in
a stable to death on a cross. When Jesus took that sign of death and made it the sign of glory, He accomplished the
will of the Father who so loved the world that He sent His Son not to condemn but to save the world. A nd this is the
salvation which is ours: Life in Christ Jesus, Life eternal!
My prayer this Easter is that we all with deep faith acknowledge with joy and gratitude that God’s love triumphed in
the resurrection of Jesus from the dead and that His resurrection gives us our new destiny: we share His divine life
now and will share it with Him forever in glory! My prayer is that we all participate in Mass this Easter Sunday as a
pledge of our fidelity to Him who died and rose. My prayer is that we greet one another with that ancient greeting
of Christians: Christ is risen! He is truly risen. A lleluia.
If we do that then I am confident we will be renewed in His life and we will be so filled with His Spirit that we will
seek to share His life with others and witness His life to the world. I am confident that we will be more eager to
care for the sick, reach out to the poor, bear one another’s burdens and be true brothers and sisters by prayer and
action to all who need us in our parishes, our communities, our nation and the world. The world needs the witness
of our faith in the Risen Christ. The world needs the witness of our hope for the future. The world needs our love
that embraces all those whom our Savior embraced from the cross. May they too share in the resurrection of our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! For He is Risen. He is truly risen. A lleluia!

Pascua 2015
Queridos Hermanos y Hermanas en el Señor Resucitado,
¡Cuan cambiado está el mundo esta mañana de Pascua! ¡Qué maravilloso la verdad en los labios de sus fieles discípulos! ¿Podría haber algún canto más hermoso, cualquier noticia más deseada, cualquier corazón que quisiera buscar
más? ¡Jesucristo ha resucitado! ¡Es cierto! ¡Él ha resucitado! ¡Aleluya!
Ese largo tiempo de Cuaresma de la historia humana se terminó esa primera mañana del Domingo de Pascua, cuando
María Magdalena descubrió que la tumba estaba vacía y el cuerpo de su amado Señor faltaba. Pero ese cuerpo,
cruelmente condenado a muerte en el madero del Calvario, no faltaba. ¡Fue transformado! ¡Fue glorificado! El
Hijo de Dios hecho hombre cumplió su destino en esta tierra y así transformó nuestro destino del pecado y de la
muerte a la vida en Él, la vida eterna.
Tú y yo somos los destinatarios del largo viaje de amor que Jesús hizo de Galilea a Jerusalén, desde su nacimiento
en un establo a la muerte en una cruz. Cuando Jesús tomó el signo de la muerte y lo hizo el signo de la gloria, Él logró la voluntad del Padre, quien amó tanto al mundo que envió a su hijo no para condena sino para salvar al mundo.
¡Y esta es la salvación que es nuestra: La V ida en Cristo Jesús, V ida Eterna!
¡Mi oración esta Pascua es que todos con profunda fe reconozcamos con gozo y gratitud que el amor de Dios triunfó
en la resurrección de Jesús de entre los muertos y que su resurrección nos da nuestro nuevo destino: ahora compartimos su vida divina y la compartiremos con Él siempre en la gloria! Mi oración es que todos participemos en la Misa
de este Domingo de Pascua como compromiso de nuestra fidelidad a Aquel que murió y resucitó. Mi oración es que
nos saludemos unos a otros con ese antiguo saludo de los cristianos: ¡Cristo ha resucitado! V erdaderamente ha resucitado. Aleluya.
Si lo hacemos, estoy seguro de que seremos renovado en Su vida y estaremos tan llenos de Su Espíritu que buscaremos de compartir Su vida con los demás y ser testigo de Su vida al mundo. Estoy seguro de que vamos a estar más
dispuestos a cuidar a los enfermos, llegar a los pobres, llevar las cargas de los otros y ser verdaderos hermanos y
hermanas en la oración y la acción a todos los que nos necesitan en nuestras parroquias, nuestras comunidades, nuestra nación y el mundo. El mundo necesita el testimonio de nuestra fe en Cristo Resucitado. El mundo necesita el
testimonio de nuestra esperanza para el futuro. El mundo necesita nuestro amor que abrace a todos aquellos a quienes nuestro Salvador abrazó desde la cruz. Que ellos también compartan en la resurrección de nuestro Señor y Salvador Jesucristo !Pues El ha resucitado! V erdaderamente ha resucitado. ¡A leluya!
