FOURTH SUNDAY OF EASTER
APRIL 26, 2015
A Word from Our Pastor
Fr. Ron Weissbeck
Fourth Sunday of Easter
For the last three Sundays, we have been hearing
Jesus’ farewell discourse before He ascends into heaven.
This Sunday, Jesus concludes with a conversation with the
Father where He petitions on behalf of His followers. In
His words, Jesus’ love for His disciples, then as well as
now, shines forth. There is a sense that now we are all
truly one with Him. We are consecrated in truth, as He is
consecrated as the truth.
Jesus commands us to love. We are to love God
and each other. These are simple commands, but they are
so hard to follow.
Do we not attest to the fact that God is love? How
can we truly explain or understand the depths of love
without knowledge of God? So, when we give love to
someone, we are giving a glimpse of God to that person.
When we love God, we are giving back to Him a
glimpse of Himself since we are created in His image. A
world without love is a world without God!
Before this Easter season ends, resolve to love
more. The world needs more love. Through the act of
loving, may it come to know God in a more profound way.
My dear family in Christ,
One of the most satisfying aspects of ministry has
always involved pastoral care. This was an essential part
of my training after the Second Vatican Council. The way
that this impacted me personally was that I was asked to be
chaplain at University Hospital which was in the parish of
Christ the King in Denver. In the early 70s, the hospital
was in the forefront of transplants, and tending to the
indigents outside of the Denver area. In this ministry I was
challenged to listen to the patients concerns, worries, and
questions about the interplay of healing that was medical
and spiritual.
It’s one thing to have had preparation in the
seminary, but quite a different experience altogether to
encounter a person in the “here and now” who is sick and
being challenged by a difficulty of that magnitude. I
learned pastoral care in the “field.” I will never forget
meeting a person named John, only two months older than
me, who was dealing with a brain tumor. This is not, I
discovered, a “case study” but a person who was facing the
reality of impending death and trying to make sense of his
experience by means of faith. It was not so much what I
said, but just being present to him during my regular visits.
One of the clear expressions of being Catholic is an
awareness of sacramentality, that is, to be aware through
the ordinary of the graced moments in life. All of us have
been called through our baptism to be ministers. This is
not carried out so much in the act of doing as it is being a
conscious channel of the divine presence.
Jesus is our model for the good shepherd because
He not only talked about what needed to be done but put
His life on the line. He has demonstrated through the
resurrection that the power of the Holy Spirit has been
released and is available to all of us.
The theme for this the fourth Sunday of Easter is
one that calls all of us to be ministers. As we move beyond
our comfort zone and share the Good News of the LORD,
more people will come to realize that this is not limited to
an hour at church, but an extension of our convictions that
are grounded in responding to the call of the Good
Shepherd who calls each of us by name.

“I am the good shepherd, and I know mine and mine know

Reflection
By Seth Willden
In a recent homily, I was reminded of how good Catholics
are at practicing Lent. Indeed, we have many rituals to help
us prepare for the joy of Easter, but what do we do with this
joy? How do we proclaim the goodness of the Lord? Lent
is forty days, but we seem to forget that Easter spans fifty
days, and we often don’t step further into that relationship.
Our faith is built on intentionality. We don’t reap the fruits
of our faith if we don’t have the desire to enter into a deeper
understanding.
By John Williams
Our food bank sometimes receives letters from a
family expressing their gratitude that we have supported
them with weekly food boxes delivered to their door.
Although we don’t expect a thank you, letters of gratitude
are always welcomed when someone takes the time to send
a card or letter thanking us for our service.
We serve 4-5 tons a week to around 200 families
per week. It takes an organized weekly volunteer effort to
receive the food that we deliver, and to fill the boxes that
we take to these families’ homes.
Thank you to the parishioners of St. John’s who
provide the financial donations which help enable our
buying team to purchase the items needed to make our
food boxes truly nutritional. For the last thirteen years,
St. John’s has supported our efforts, even making possible
the purchase of our food bank building.
I never cease to be amazed at the commitment of
our Church in regards to feeding the hungry. I am quite
certain that Jesus is so very proud of each and every one of
you.
What is the Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal?
The Appeal is the motivation from our shepherd to ensure
that we nurture our Catholic faith, grow in our spiritual
journeys, and thrive as one community of faith.
Here is a recent letter we received:
March 31
Thank you so much for the box of food that you bring us
every week. It helps us out so much! We are kind of down
on our luck right now so the extra food you provide is truly
a blessing. When we receive personal hygiene items such
as shampoo and dish and laundry soap, and yes even toilet
paper, we are very thankful. We know the money for what
we receive must come from the people that attend your
church, so please, thank them for helping us.
Why should you give to the Appeal?
Because we are called by God to be disciples who take risks
for his kingdom. That risk involves different types of
sacrifices, one of them being our generous gift to the
greatest cause – the mission that Jesus Christ entrusted to
his Church. We are called to return to God a portion of
what he has allowed us to receive.
Who benefits from the Appeal?
The tangible fruits of the Appeal are many. Your gift will
be distributed to nearly forty ministries that were created
to bring the light and hope of Christ to many. For more
information, please visit www.archden.org/donate.

The Good Shepherd
This Fourth Sunday of Easter is traditionally referred to as “Good Shepherd Sunday.” Today we listen to the words of
the Lord as He refers to Himself as the “good shepherd who lays down His life for the sheep.” It is sometimes so difficult
for us to grasp the reality that anyone would lay down his or her own life for the sake of someone else. This is especially
true in a society that places high value on power and personal advancement, often at the cost of “trampling” on other people
in order to climb the ladder. Today’s scriptures point to the one we are called to emulate—the one who lays down His life
for His sheep. Today’s scriptures challenge us to discover ways to bring life to those around us—to build up rather than to
tear down.

Mi querida familia en Cristo,
Este domingo nos enfocamos en un tema que
clarifica el ministerio de Jesús, el buen pastor. En el
evangelio encontramos estas palabras, “Yo soy el buen
pastor, porque conozco a mis ovejas y ellas me conocen a
mí, así como el Padre me conoce a mí y yo conozco al
Padre” (Juan 10.11). No hay nada más claro en el evangelio
de San Juan que la relación que nos comparte Jesús con su
Padre. Jesús nos invita a reconocer su voz.
El ejemplo del buen pastor consiste de pastorear
las ovejas. Él dio su vida por el rebaño. Entonces todos
nosotros hemos recibido la invitación de seguirlo y
compartir el amor del Padre quien nos ofrecía a Jesús.
Cuando yo empezaba el cargo pastoral una realidad
clara y profunda incluía el servicio del hospital de la
universidad de Colorado en Denver. En la parroquia a
donde me nombraron había cuatro hospitales. En uno de
ellos yo encontré un paciente que tuvo solamente dos meses
de edad más que yo. Él luchó con un tumor de la cabeza y
yo traté de visitarlo cada otro día. Al principio lo que me
preocupaba consistía de palabras para tranquilizarlo. Al fin
me di cuenta de que yo no tenía una solución para su lucha
pero solamente mi presencia.
De la experiencia yo aprendí que lo más importante
era la visita y mi presencia con él más que una solución
para su enfermedad. Entonces a través la experiencia yo
empecé de entender mejor de que la pastoral no consiste en
las respuestas pero en la presencia a lo largo su lucha.
Jesús, también, nos invita a nosotros de compartir
con los demás el amor de Dios por la presencia en vez de
soluciones que no pueden cambiar o resolver la realidad.

Deepening Your Faith Journey
as an RCIA Sponsor
By Tami Dang
If you would like to deepen your own faith journey
then I highly recommend the sponsoring of a candidate or
catechumen through our St. John’s RCIA program.
I was asked by RCIA Coordinator, Anna Campbell,
to be a sponsor. I had never been one and didn’t know what
to expect. In accepting the invitation, I know that I was
enriched by the experience. The classes I’ve attended have
helped me to understand even more about our Catholic faith
and why I practice it. It’s not easy for me, but the grace of
God has helped me. I see the rich history of our faith; a
beautiful gift from God.
The Paschal meal that we shared together brought
back memories of my family’s exodus from Vietnam in
1975. We were a family of twelve with the oldest being 12
years old and the youngest in the womb. I was the second
child.
There are similarities between my family’s journey
and that of the Israelites out of Egypt—the hastiness of it,
the danger, the sickness, and the fear. Because of the
bombing, we rushed out to the sea in a fishing boat for
safety. There wasn’t time to pack all the necessities for life.
My parents had paid for a spot for each one of us on that
boat with the little gold that they had. Paper money was
worthless. When we got hungry, my mom gave each of us
tablespoons of rice grain to chew on and a swallow of water
to quiet our hunger pangs. One night a group of soldiers in
a smaller boat than ours threatened to blow us up with
grenades. We got very seasick as the boat moved further
out to sea looking for rescue ships. We were afraid of
drowning since none of us knew how to swim.
Through it all, God was with us, guiding, and
protecting us as He did the Israelites. We arrived at “the
land of milk and honey,” the United States. It is God’s
miracle for us, and I thank Him for all the freedom that we
have.
The Easter Vigil was a beautiful experience. It’s
even more meaningful for me after all the explanations from
classes. I was baptized at a few weeks old, received First
Communion, and Confirmation at a young age. I was not
mature enough to understand and experience all the fullness
of the sacraments. Now I do!
I would like to thank Fr. Ron and Anna for being
there, teaching, and guiding us in our journey of faith. May
God bless you both.
I encourage anyone interested to prayerfully
consider becoming a sponsor. You will be blessed!
Peace of the Risen Christ be with you all.
Family Faith Formation 2015
Walking with the Risen Lord!
When our children were fearful my husband used to repeat
these words of Jesus to them, “I know mine and mine know
me, I will never leave you or forsake you” John10:14-15.
They took great comfort in hearing these words. We ALL
need reassurance at times, even those who may not
recognize the “leader,” Jesus. To that end, Faith Formation
supports His promise, the Church. Our community of faith
will also “be with us” to support and instruct us through
our lifelong Journey of Faith to the Lord.
Last classes for all grades: April 28th and April 30th.
