THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER
APRIL 19, 2015
TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
With the Easter season well under way, we now resume our survey of the sacrament of the sick. The pastoral care of the sick will be misunderstood if we start from the vantage point of the sickroom. Begin with the
Sunday assembly, from which the sick person has been separated by the crisis of illness, and whose absence is given expression in prayer and service. The goal is to extend the consolation of the Lord’s presence
at the table to those who are apart from it, and for the assembly to enfold them in prayer.
Secondarily, the goal is to teach people what the Church desires for all those who are sick. Seeing ministers dispatched to the sick from Mass every Sunday might help a caregiver realize that their dear one can
also receive Communion. Witnessing the anointing of a woman facing surgery might help another person to
overcome hesitation and ask for the sacrament’s healing and strength. Society’s impulse may be to marginalize the sick, but the tradition of our community is to see them at the center of our life. When Roman persecutors ordered St. Lawrence the Deacon to hand over the jewels of the church, he assembled a motley crew of
the sick and the infirm and announced with all humility, “Behold, my lord, the treasures of the church of
Christ.”

NOTICE FROM BISHOP GUGLIELMONE
TO PASTORS - Dated March 13, 2015
I pass on to you information communicated to the
Apostolic Nuncio by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith that the faithful should not participate in events that promote the "visionaries" of Medjugorje and, in particular, Mr. Ivan Dragicevic. These
events and activities popularize credibility for alleged
apparitions that at this time have not been confirmed
by the Church. No parish, institution, or church office
in the Diocese of Charleston may sponsor, host or
promote these events.

NUESTRA FE
DE
Los cristianos somos
¡testigos de Cristo resucitado! Testimoniamos
todo lo relacionado con
Jesús de Nazaret quien
murió en una cruz, fue
sepultado y resucitó al
tercer día. Debemos ser personas que cantan y gritan ¡Resucitó, Aleluya! Tan importante es la resurrección de Cristo que, mientras tenemos cuarenta
días de Cuaresma hay cincuenta días de Pascua
en el calendario cristiano. Durante esta época, domingo tras domingo mediante la proclamación del
Evangelio se nos transmiten escenas de Cristo,
quien cada ocho días se aparecía a sus discípulos
confirmando cada Domingo que en verdad había
resucitado, instruyéndolos para que pudieran ser
verdaderos testigos de su resurrección.
Y ¿tú? ¿Cuán buen testigo eres? Un buen testigo da testimonio de lo que ha visto, escuchado y
experimentado. Para ser testigo de Cristo hay que
verlo, escucharlo y experimentarlo. La Iglesia nos
da la oportunidad de verlo, escucharlo y experimentarlo diariamente, en especial durante el domingo.
Esto es posible sólo si durante la semana vives con
el corazón abierto. Abierto para ver, escuchar y experimentar a Jesús en tu hogar, en tu trabajo, entre
tus parientes y amistades.
