The Mercy of God
Dear Friends,
often exhibited it in his dealings with others. Pope Francis has made
“mercy” a term synonymous with his pontificate. Probably much like
his predecessor Peter, he has experienced conversion, mercy and the
remission of his own sins. I find that inspirational, because for so many
it is hard to even admit that we actually do sin, and actually do need
conversion, and actually do need to experience the mercy of God. And
if we can do that some of us struggle with the concept of anyone – even
God – being able to forgive us. Francis tells us that God never tires of
forgiving us. He is so convinced of the mercy of God that he, just last
Sunday, announced an Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, to begin on
December eighth of this year.
Happy Easter! We gather this week to celebrate
the third Sunday of Easter. As we do this, the Gospel
gives us another post-resurrection appearance of
Jesus. In fact we hear some of the final words that
Luke has Jesus say. Immediately before he takes
them to Bethany, the place of the Ascension, Jesus
tells his disciples, and Luke allows us to hear the
words today, “You are witnesses of these things.”
As I reflect on that sentence from the final chapter of Saint Luke’s
Gospel, I think of the many witnesses we need to thank for allowing us
to know the details of our salvation history. Throughout the Gospels,
we read that the disciples were far from perfect. They often let Jesus
down and more often than not didn’t really know what Jesus was
using them to do. But because they received the Holy Spirit that Jesus
promised would come, they somehow, despite their own physical and
moral weakness, mustered the strength to be witnesses. They did as
the Lord commanded them to do; they preached of the suffering, death
and resurrection of Jesus. They called people to repentance and told of
the forgiveness the Lord offers. People heard their message, and many
followed them. We hear of their great success in the Easter season’s first
readings that come from the Acts of the Apostles.
The “Bull of Indiction”, the document announcing the jubilee year
provides great spiritual reading. I read it this week. I will share with you
just one of scores of paragraphs of Pope Francis’ beautiful writing. It
gives great food for thought.
I present, therefore, this Extraordinary Jubilee Year dedicated to living out
in our daily lives the mercy which the Father constantly extends to all of us. In
this JubileeYear, let us allow God to surprise us. He never tires of throwing open
the doors of his heart and repeats that he loves us and wants to share his love
with us. The Church feels the urgent need to proclaim God’s mercy. Her life is
authentic and credible only when she becomes a convincing herald of mercy. She
knows that her primary task, especially at a moment full of great hopes and signs
of contradiction, is to introduce everyone to the great mystery of God’s mercy by
contemplating the face of Christ. The Church is called above all to be a credible
witness to mercy, professing it and living it as the core of the revelation of Jesus
Christ. From the heart of the Trinity, from the depths of the mystery of God, the
great river of mercy wells up and overflows unceasingly. It is a spring that will
never run dry, no matter how many people approach it. Every time someone is
in need, he or she can approach it, because the mercy of God never ends. The
profundity of the mystery surrounding it is as inexhaustible as the richness which
springs up from it.
Today’s selection from the Acts of the Apostles portrays a confident
Peter. Just three weeks ago, in the Passion Gospels we watched as Peter
denied Jesus three times. We sensed his fear and self-protective stance.
We heard him shout, “I do not know the man!” Today he is standing firm
and courageous. He confronts the leaders of the people and calls them
to conversion. Having experienced a conversion himself, and having
received the Holy Spirit, he lost his fear and selfishness and began really
living his life for Jesus. He invited others to do the same. Once converted
himself, he challenged others, even some of Jesus’ most powerful
detractors to do the same. He tells them (and us), “Be converted and
your sins will be wiped away.” That’s a pretty nice promise.
Let’s get ready for the year of mercy! Let’s let mercy come alive
in us.
People believed that promise of the remission of sins, first spoken
by Jesus and repeated by Peter and the other disciples, and handed
down from generation to generation. Jesus invited, throughout his
earthly ministry, all people to trust in the mercy of God and to be
merciful as God himself is merciful. He spoke of it often and even more
Happy Easter!
Our Mission:
Rooted in Christ, touched by His love and mercy, the Saint John Berchmans community finds unity in its diversity, proclaims by Word, Sacrament, and
service, that the Kingdom of God is at hand, and declares that all are welcome in this place.

THE YEAR OF THE SACRAMENTS
Pope Francis’ Vision of Healing and Communion
(JULY 2014 - JUNE 2015)
Parish Announcements
SUFFER
The Martyrology is a thick book that contains
entries for every day of the year. Each day lists
the men and women, boys and girls across two
thousand years who have given their lives in witness to their faith
in Jesus Christ. It is an impressive assembly of countless witnesses
to the faith. Most probably, we will not be called to shed our blood
in witness to our faith. We will, most definitely, have to suffer in
some way because of our faith in Jesus Christ. In the Gospels, Jesus
clearly tells his disciples that there is a cost in following him. Of
course, they will be joyful and full of hope in him, but they will also
endure the difficulties of misunderstanding, contempt, perhaps even
persecution. In short, suffering is an inevitable part of discipleship.
To support us in our suffering, he gives us his Holy Spirit in the
sacrament of Confirmation.
JOIN US AS WE CELEBRATE THE SACRAMENTS
Many of the students in both our school and Religious Education program
are in the final stages of preparing to receive Sacraments in the first week
of May. First Communions will be celebrated at the 5pm Mass on Saturday,
May 2nd and the 9:45am, 11:30am & 6:30pm Masses on Sunday, May 3rd.
Confirmation will be celebrated at 7pm on Wednesday, May 6th. Please keep
these students in your prayers during these final weeks and consider joining
us at one or more of the Masses to share their Sacramental joy!
SUMMER ON THE SQUARE
Save the Date! Summer on the Square will be held on Saturday, June
13th. We will begin with an outdoor Mass at 4pm, and the fun will continue
throughout the evening with foods from around the world, various musical
performances on the Church steps, and games and activities for the kids!
Women of Faith:
Come and Pray
Raffle tickets will be on sale soon! If you can help with the raffle sale or in

Stewards of God’s Creation
Topic: Rediscovering Catholicism by Matthew Kelly
“Holiness is to become the-best-version-of-yourself.”
By Rochelle Brophy
Climate Reality Leader
“Have you ever tried to find your way to a place you have
never been before with no directions, no map, and no clear
description of the destination? Come, rediscover the great
Spiritual North Star: Holiness.” -Matthew Kelly
Catholic Social Teaching Principle: Care for God’s Creation
In Genesis, we are told that God has given us seed bearing plants, livestock,
birds in the sky and green plants for food. This was the beginning; this is
how it was intended for us. Our greatest act as Christians it to care for the
earth and in return the earth will take care of us. Destroying and abusing
the environment truly goes against everything we learned in Genesis. God
gave us life, in many forms, and all forms of life are worth saving. When we
walk, instead of drive, bring our own bags to the grocery store, recycle and
conserve energy we are respecting an amazing gift that was given to us by
God. Please look within yourself and make decisions that benefit the earth,
in turn they will benefit you and your health.

Mother’s Day Collection
May 10, 2015
Eva is doing all she can to raise her grandchild alone on a limited
income. She called Catholic Charities when she couldn’t afford to
fix her plumbing. We made the home repair, and invited her to our
caregiver support group. She was one of the 398,078 seniors we
helped last year.
April 22 is Earth Day, please do not look at this day as a “hippy” movement
but as a day to respect the very basics that God has given us. In the beginning
God created the heavens, the earth and all living creatures. God blessed
them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and
subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living
creature that moves on the ground.”
Please give to Catholic Charities on Mother’s Day to help seniors
live in comfort. Learn more at www.catholiccharities.net.
Here are 10 animals that are very close to extinction: Polar Bears, Giant
Pandas, Loggerhead Turtle, Southern Cassowary, Blue Poison Dart Frog,
Blue Whale, Beluga Sturgeon, Florida Panther, Mountain Gorilla, Elkhorn

were given and respect life. Small changes can make a huge impact.

La Misericordia de Dios
Queridos Amigos,
en su trato con los demás. El Papa Francisco ha hecho la “misericordia”, un
término sinónimo de su pontificado. Probablemente al igual que su predecesor
Pedro, él ha experimentado la conversión, la misericordia y el perdón de
sus propios pecados. Me parece inspirador, ya que para muchos es difícil
incluso admitir que en realidad hemos pecado, y en realidad necesitamos la
conversión, y necesitamos verdaderamente experimentar la misericordia de
Dios.Y si podemos hacer eso, algunos de nosotros luchamos con el concepto
de que alguien – incluso Dios – pueda perdonarnos. Francisco nos dice que
Dios no se cansa de perdonar. Él está tan convencido de la misericordia de Dios
que apenas el domingo pasado, él anunció un Año de Jubileo Extraordinario
de la Misericordia, que comenzará el ocho de diciembre de este año.
¡Felices Pascuas! Nos reunimos esta semana para
celebrar el tercer domingo de Pascua. Al hacerlo,
el Evangelio nos da otro aspecto posterior a la
resurrección de Jesús. De hecho escuchamos algunas
de las últimas palabras que Lucas pide a Jesús que diga.
Inmediatamente antes de que él los llevara a Betania, el
lugar de la Ascensión, Jesús dice a sus discípulos, y Lucas
permite que escuchemos las palabras de hoy, “Ustedes son testigos de esto.”
Al reflexionar sobre la frase final del capítulo del Evangelio de San Lucas,
pienso en los muchos testigos que necesitamos agradecer por permitirnos
saber los detalles de nuestra historia de salvación. A través de los Evangelios,
leemos que los discípulos estaban lejos de ser perfectos. Ellos a menudo
decepcionaban a Jesús y continuamente no sabían la razón por la cual Jesús los
estaba utilizando. Pero debido a que recibieron el Espíritu Santo que Jesús les
prometió, de alguna manera, a pesar de su debilidad física y moral, reunieron
la fuerza para ser testigos. Ellos hicieron lo que el Señor les mandó a hacer;
predicaron del sufrimiento, la muerte y resurrección de Jesús. Llamaron a la
gente al arrepentimiento y hablaron del perdón que el Señor ofrece. La gente
escuchó su mensaje, y muchos de ellos los siguieron. Escuchamos de su gran
éxito en la primera lectura de la temporada de Pascua que proviene de los
Hechos de los Apóstoles.
“Bula de Convocación”, el documento anunciando el año jubilar ofrece
gran lectura espiritual. Lo leí esta semana. Compartiré con ustedes una de las
puntuaciones de los párrafos de la hermosa escritura del Papa Francisco. Nos
da gran alimento para el pensamiento.
Presento, un Año Santo extraordinario, entonces, para vivir en la vida de cada
día la misericordia que desde siempre el Padre dispensa hacia nosotros. En este Jubileo
dejémonos sorprender por Dios. Él nunca se cansa de destrabar la puerta de su corazón
para repetir que nos ama y quiere compartir con nosotros su vida. La Iglesia siente la
urgencia de anunciar la misericordia de Dios. Su vida es auténtica y creíble cuando con
convicción hace de la misericordia su anuncio. Ella sabe que la primera tarea, sobre todo
en un momento como el nuestro, lleno de grandes esperanzas y fuertes contradicciones,
es la de introducir a todos en el misterio de la misericordia de Dios, contemplando el
rostro de Cristo. La Iglesia está llamada a ser el primer testigo veraz de la misericordia,
profesándola y viviéndola como el centro de la Revelación de Jesucristo. Desde el
corazón de la Trinidad, desde la intimidad más profunda del misterio de Dios, brota
y corre sin parar el gran río de la misericordia. Esta fuente nunca podrá agotarse, sin
importar cuántos sean los que a ella se acerquen. Cada vez que alguien tendrá necesidad
podrá venir a ella, porque la misericordia de Dios no tiene fin. Es tan insondable la
profundidad del misterio que encierra, tan inagotable la riqueza que de ella proviene.
La selección de hoy de los Hechos de los Apóstoles representa a un Pedro
confiado. Hace apenas tres semanas, en los Evangelios de la Pasión vimos
como Pedro negó a Jesús tres veces. Detectamos su miedo y su postura de
autoprotección. Le hemos escuchado gritar, “¡Yo no conozco a ese hombre!”
Hoy en día se encuentra firme y confiado. Él se enfrenta a los líderes del
pueblo y los llama a la conversión. Después de haber experimentado una
conversión en sí mismo, y después de haber recibido al Espíritu Santo, perdió
el miedo y el egoísmo y comenzó a vivir realmente su vida por Jesús. Invitó a
otros a que hicieran lo mismo. Una vez que se convirtió, desafió a los demás,
incluso a algunos de los más poderosos detractores de Jesús a que hicieran lo
mismo. Él les dice (y a nosotros): “Arrepiéntanse y conviértanse para que se
les perdonen sus pecados.” Esa es una gran promesa.
¡Preparémonos para el año de la misericordia! Dejemos que la
misericordia cobre vida en nosotros.
¡Felices Pascuas!
La gente creía en la promesa de la remisión de los pecados, primero
hablada por Jesús y repetida por Pedro y los otros discípulos, se transmitía de
generación a generación. Jesús invitó, a través de su ministerio terrenal, a todas
las personas a confiar en la misericordia de Dios y a ser misericordiosos como
el mismo Dios. El habló de esto con frecuencia e incluso a menudo lo exhibió
Nuestra Misión:
“Arraigada en Cristo y tocada por Su amor y misericordia, la comunidad de San Juan Berchmans encuentra unidad en su diversidad, proclama por medio
de la palabra, Sacramento y servicio, que el Reino de Dios esta cerca y declara que todos son bienvenidos en este lugar.”

EL AÑO DE LOS SACRAMENTOS
La Visión del Papa Francisco Sobre la Sancación y la Comunión
(JULIO 2014 - JUNIO 2015)
SUFRIR
Anuncios Parroquiales
El Martirologio es un libro extenso que contiene
entradas para cada día del año. Cada día presenta
una lista de los hombres y las mujeres, niños y niñas
que, a lo largo de dos mil años, han entregado su
vida como testimonio de su fe en Jesucristo. Es un grupo impresionante de
innumerables testigos de la fe. Es muy probable que nosotros no seremos
llamados a derramar nuestra sangre en testimonio de nuestra fe. Deberemos,
definitivamente, sufrir de alguna manera por nuestra fe en Jesucristo. En
los evangelios, Jesús dice claramente a sus discípulos que seguirlo tiene un
costo. Por supuesto, serán dichosos y estarán llenos de esperanza en Jesús,
pero también soportarán las dificultades de la falta de comprensión, del
desprecio y tal vez hasta de la persecución. En suma, el sufrimiento es una
parte inevitable del discipulado. Para apoyarnos en nuestro sufrimiento, él
nos entrega a su Espíritu Santo en el sacramento de la Confirmación.
ACOMPÁÑENOS A CELEBRAR LOS SACRAMENTOS
Muchos de los estudiantes en nuestra escuela y del Programa de Educación
Religiosa están en las etapas finales de preparación para recibir los Sacramentos
en la primera semana de mayo. Las Primeras Comuniones se celebrarán durante
las Misas el sábado, 2 de mayo a las 5pm y el domingo 3 de mayo a las 9:45am,
11:30am y 6:30pm. La Confirmación se celebrará el miércoles, 6 de mayo a
las 7pm. ¡Por favor mantenga a estos estudiantes en sus oraciones durante estas
últimas semanas y considere unirse a nosotros en una o más de las Misas para
compartir su alegría Sacramental!
VERANO EN LA CUADRA
¡Reserve la fecha! El Verano en la Cuadra se llevará a cabo el sábado, 13 de junio.
Comenzaremos con una misa al aire libre a las 4pm, y la diversión continuará

Tema de Enseñanza Social Católica: El Cuidado de la Creación de Dios
En el Génesis, se nos dice que Dios nos ha dado las plantas simientes, el ganado, las
aves del cielo y las plantas verdes para el alimento. Este fue el comienzo; esta forma
estaba destinada para nosotros. Nuestra mayor responsabilidad como cristianos es
el cuidado de la tierra y, a cambio la tierra se hará cargo de nosotros. Destruir y
abusar del ambiente va verdaderamente en contra de todo lo que aprendimos en
el Génesis. Dios nos dio la vida, en muchas formas, y todas las formas de vida
valen la pena salvar. Caminemos, en lugar de conducir, llevemos nuestras propias
bolsas a la tienda de comestibles, cuando reciclamos y conservamos energía
estamos respetando el increíble regalo que Dios nos ha dado. Por favor, tome un
momento para reflexionar y tome decisiones que beneficien a la tierra, a su vez le
beneficiarán a usted y a su salud.

Colecta del Día de las Madres
de Caridades Católicas
10 Mayo 2014
Eva está haciendo todo lo posible por criar sola a su nieto con sus
limitados ingresos. Cuando no pudo pagar un arreglo de plomería
en su casa llamó a Caridades Católicas. Hicimos la reparación de
su casa y le invitamos a nuestro grupo de apoyo para cuidadores.
Ella fue una de los 398,078 adultos mayores que ayudamos el año
pasado.
El 22 de abril es el Día de la Tierra, por favor no considere este día como un
movimiento “hippy”, sino como un día para respetar los mismos fundamentos que
Dios nos ha dado. En el principio Dios creó los cielos, la tierra y todas las criaturas
vivientes. Dios los bendijo y les dijo: “Sean fecundos y multiplíquense; llenen las aguas
de los mares y que las aves se multipliquen sobre la tierra”. Que la tierra produzca toda clase
de seres vivientes.”
Aquí están 10 animales que están muy cerca de extinción: Oso polar, panda gigante,
tortuga boba, ave casuario, rana flecha azul (Dendrobates azureus), El rorcual
azul (nombre científico Balaenoptera musculus), más conocido como ballena
azul, esturión Beluga, pantera de la Florida, gorila de montaña, el coral cuerno
de ciervo” (Acropora cervicornis, Staghorn) y “coral cuerno de alce”(Acropora
palmata, Elkhorn). Su futuro está literalmente en nuestras manos. Apreciamos lo
que nos han dado y respetemos la vida. Los cambios pequeños pueden tener un
impacto enorme.
Este Día de las Madres, por favor done a Caridades Católicas, para
ayudar a que las personas de tercera edad vivan con comodidad.

Third Sunday of Easter
2015 Annual Catholic Appeal
Debt Reduction Program
“Your Gift Gives Twice
Do you know what the Debt Reduction program means to Saint
John Berchmans? In case you don’t, here is a simple summary...
With the help of past campaigns, four of our five buildings are in
sound structural and physical shape. We have completed nearly
$6 million in infrastructure repairs, along with the accessibility
programs in the church. As a result of this capital work, we have
a $1.8 million loan from the Archdiocese. This year, through the
debt reduction program, every dollar we raise will be matched and
will be used to reduce or eliminate this debt - saving us nearly
$75,000 in interest payments
If you have not yet pledged to the Annual Catholic Appeal, now
is the time.
¿Sabe usted lo que significa el Programa de Reducción de Deuda para San
Juan Berchmans? En caso de que no lo sepa, aquí está un resumen simple...
Con la ayuda de las campañas anteriores, cuatro de nuestros cinco
edificios están en mejores condiciones estructurales y físicas. Hemos
terminado casi $6 millones en reparaciones de infraestructura, junto con
los programas de accesibilidad en la Iglesia. Como resultado de este trabajo
de capital, tenemos un préstamo de $ 1,8 millones con la Arquidiócesis.
Este año, a través del Programa de Reducción de Deuda, cada dólar que
recaudemos será igualado y se utilizará para reducir o eliminar esta deuda
- ahorrándonos casi $ 75,000 en pagos de intereses
Si usted todavía no ha prometido a la Campaña Católica Anual, ahora es
