“Because we have been gifted with God’s
peace in the Risen Christ, we are called to
our own peace and to making peace in our
world. As disciples and children of God it is
our task to seek for ways in which to make
the forgiveness, justice and mercy and love

of God visible in a world where there is
violence and enmity are too often the norm.”
“The table fellowship of Christians implies
obligations. It is our daily bread that we eat,
not our my. We share our bread. Thus we
are firmly bound to one another not only in
the Spirit but in our whole physical being.
The one bread that is given to our fellowship
links us together in a firm covenant. Now
none dares to go hungry as long as another
has bread, and anyone who breaks this
fellowship of the physical life also breaks
the fellowship of the Spirit.” (Dietrich

Community Life
Dear Friends,
Today we celebrate the Second Sunday of Easter. The
very solemn liturgies of Holy Week are completed and
we return to our more ordinary way of celebrating.
Many years ago, I remember that this was called Low
Sunday, indicating that the elaborate liturgies of Holy
Week were completed and we came back to a simpler
liturgy. Saint John Paul II also declared this Divine
Mercy Sunday. You can see that it has had several
different titles: the Second Sunday of Easter, Low
Sunday, and Divine Mercy Sunday.
Whatever this Sunday is called it is very powerful and
very beautiful. The first reading comes from the Acts
of the Apostles. It describes the life of the early
followers of Jesus who after Pentecost begin to form a
community of believers in the light of the gospel
proclaimed by Jesus. It is quite a picture! The
community of believers “was of one heart and mind,
and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his
own, but they had everything in common. With great
power the apostles bore witness to the resurrection of
Jesus and great favor was accorded them all.” This
community of believers is trying to discern what it
means to be “church.” It would not always be such a
peaceful picture as time passed and new situations
presented themselves to this community of believers.
Indeed they will come to understand that this
becoming church will be a long and ongoing (perhaps
never ending) process. The questions they faced two
thousand years ago are still with us today. What does
it mean to be a community of believers? What does it
mean to be church? How do we truly become one in
heart and mind when we are so different? How do we
minister to those in great need and who live in our
The second reading comes from the First Letter of
John. In this section of the letter, John calls his readers
to exercise their faith in Jesus as Christ and God by
keeping his commandments to love one another. He
had already written that if one claimed to love God,
Page 4
but is filled with hate for his neighbor, that one would
be a liar! John also insists that there is also an
intellectual aspect about belief. One must know and
understand Jesus correctly in order to have a salvific
relationship with him. The true believer will know
Christ and has been begotten by God; therefore
certain Christian behaviors must follow. All those who
are begotten by God shall overcome all adversity
because of their faith in Jesus Christ, who is truly the
Son of the living God, who came through water and
blood and who as true man suffered and died for our
In the gospel for this weekend, all the promises Jesus
made to his disciples about his abiding presence, the
gift of the Spirit, forgiveness, peace and eternal life
find their fulfillment! This gospel represents Jesus as
rising, bestowing the Spirit, and commissioning his
disciples on the same day! Jesus comes to his disciples
and greets them with the words: “Peace be with you!”
Peace and joy are signs of the Messianic kingdom.
Jesus is the one who inaugurates this kingdom! He has
fulfilled the messianic prophecies. Jesus empowers
and inspires his own disciples, who now share in the
fruits of his victory and peace. They in turn are called
to share these gifts with all humanity through the
preaching of the gospel! John’s primary purpose in
writing this gospel is so simple: that we may believe in
Jesus, Son of God, and have life in his name!
May the peace of this Easter season fill you with
abundant peace and grace!

Divine Mercy Sunday
“For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion
have Mercy on us and on the
whole world”
We walk by faith, and not by sight.
What would you have done if you were
Thomas? Would you have asked to see
Jesus’ pierced hands and feet? Thomas was
just as frightened after Jesus’ crucifixion and
resurrection as the other Apostles but he
also had doubts. It was a dark time without Jesus. Perhaps he felt
alone and did not know what to believe. It is a bit easy for us to
believe in the crucifixion and resurrection now that we have been told
and have learned about it in scripture. We travel with Jesus each
year during Lent and follow by faith the rest of the time. Through His
teachings, we know what He has asked us to do in His name. Come
Follow Me He asked us. I call each and every one of you by name.
Do we hear that call that call from Jesus? It comes through each and
every one of us who serve Him. It is His call when S. Gerri asks for a
Formation Teacher or a Confirmation Partner. It is His Call when S.
Kathy asks for food for the pantry or a need for the Parish Social
Justice Ministry. How about when Helen Mochwart’s call for more
singers in the Choir? When the call goes out for Ushers, Eucharistic
Ministers, or Lectors, again that is a call from Our Lord. The Lord
calls us through Fr. Steve when he asks for our help with the Catholic
Ministries Appeal and help from the Finance Council and Pastoral
This is Our Lady of Fatima, This is our church and we are here to
serve one another. We are not here to doubt but here to confirm our
faith as we help each other along our Spiritual Journey. Jesus
expects us to be his eyes and ears here on earth. We are here to
wash each other’s feet by answering His call we can just do that.
Keep in mind, you may be called by one of the committees in the
above text I mentioned and if you are, please pray about it and know
if you are asked, it is because you must be special and God needs
your help for our parish.
Once again I am asking for you to consider becoming a part of the
CaringHands Prayer Chain. If you have been following CaringHands
Corner you know that we need your help. Please, we invite you to
join us as we pray for our sisters and brothers who are Sick,
April 12, 2015

to know we are close to them in prayer. Through our CaringHands

our love.

Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my
God” (John20:28)
Queridos amigos,
Hoy celebramos el Segundo Domingo de Pascua.
Las liturgias solemnes de la Semana Santa se han
cumplido y volvemos a nuestro modo más ordinario
de la celebración. Hace muchos años, recuerdo que
esto se llamaba Domingo Bajo para indicar que se
ha terminado las liturgias elaboradas de la Semana
Santa y volvimos a una liturgia más sencilla. San
Juan Pablo II declaró este el Domingo de la
Misericordia Divina. Pueden ver que este domingo
ha tenido varios títulos diferentes: el segundo
domingo de Pascua, Domingo Bajo, y Domingo de
la Misericordia Divina.
Cualquier que sea llamado este domingo, es muy
poderoso y muy hermoso. La primera lectura está
tomada de los Hechos de los Apóstoles. Se describe
la vida de los primeros seguidores de Jesús que,
después de Pentecostés, comienzan a formar una
comunidad de creyentes a luz del evangelio
proclamado por Jesús. ¡Es totalmente una imagen
viva! La comunidad de creyentes era “de un solo
corazón y una sola alma; todo lo poseían en común
y nadie consideraba suyo nada de lo que tenía. Con
grandes muestras de poder, los apóstoles daban
testimonio de la resurrección del Señor Jesús y
todos gozaban de gran estimación entre el pueblo.”
Esta comunidad de creyentes está tratando de
discernir lo que significa ser "iglesia”. No sería
siempre una imagen tan pacífica con el transcurso
del tiempo y mientras nuevas situaciones se
presentaron a esta comunidad de creyentes. De
hecho ellos vendrán a entender que haciéndose
iglesia será un proceso largo y continuo (quizás sin
fin). Las preguntas que se enfrentaron hace dos mil
años están todavía con nosotros hoy. ¿Qué significa
Page 6
ser una comunidad de creyentes? ¿Qué significa ser
iglesia? ¿Cómo podemos convertirnos
verdaderamente en uno de corazón y mente cuando
somos tan diferentes? ¿Cómo podemos servir a los
más necesitados que viven en medio de nosotros?
La segunda lectura está tomada de la primera carta
de San Juan. En esta sección de la carta, Juan llama
a sus lectores para que ejerzan su fe en Jesús como
Cristo y Dios por guardar su mandamiento a
amarnos unos a otros. Ya había escrito que si uno
sostuviera que amó a Dios, pero está lleno de odio
para su prójimo, él sería mentiroso. También Juan
insiste en que hay un aspecto intelectual acerca de
creer. Uno debe conocer y comprender a Jesús
correctamente para poder tener una relación
salvadora con él. El verdadero creyente conocerá a
Cristo y ha sido engendrado por Dios; por lo tanto,
ciertos comportamientos cristianos deben seguir.
Todos aquellos engendrados por Dios vencerán
todas las adversidades a causa de su fe en
Jesucristo, que es verdaderamente el Hijo de Dios
vivo, que vino por el agua y la sangre, y que como
verdadero hombre sufrió y murió por nuestros
En el evangelio de este fin de semana, todas las
promesas que Jesús hizo a sus discípulos acerca de
su presencia permanente, el don del Espíritu, el
perdón, la paz y la vida eterna se cumplen. Este
evangelio presenta a Jesús como resucitado,
otorgando el Espíritu, y mandando a sus discípulos
en el mismo día. Jesús llega a donde están sus
discípulos y los saluda con las palabras: "Paz a
ustedes”. Paz y alegría son signos del Reino
mesiánico. Jesús es quien inaugura este reino. Él ha
cumplido las profecías mesiánicas. Jesús faculta e
inspira a sus propios discípulos, que ahora
comparten los frutos de su victoria y su paz. A su
vez, ellos están llamados a compartir estos dones
con toda la humanidad a través de la predicación del
evangelio. El propósito principal de Juan al escribir
este evangelio es tan sencillo: que creamos en Jesús,
Hijo de Dios, y tengamos vida en su nombre.
¡Que la paz de este tiempo de Pascua les colme de
abundantes paz y gracia!

Serving God by Serving Others
“Christ teaches us always to
look upon others with mercy
and tenderness, especially
those who suffer or are in
need of our help.”
-Pope Francis
A Place to Call Home
Charles spent 17 years deployed at military bases throughout the world.
Returning home after an incident involving nerve gas, he began struggling with
debilitating bouts of anxiety and depression.
His circumstances worsened and he couldn’t maintain a steady job. Charles
moved in with his mother, but within a year she died and his childhood home
went into foreclosure.
Catholic Charities’ Project Veterans’ Independence, which guides homeless
veterans into permanent housing so they can live independently and have access
to support networks that get them back on their feet, reached out and helped
“I was out of the service, out of a family, out of a job and out of
a home. Catholic Charities found me and helped me to not only
find a place to live - but they helped me to turn my life around.”
- Charles, honorably discharged US Veteran
