May the joy and wonder of
Christ’s Resurrection from the dead
fill us with hope and consolation this
Easter and Always. “For God so
loved the world that he gave his only
Son, so that everyone who believes in him might
not perish but might have eternal life.” (John 3:16).
May our lives be a reflection to one another of Who
we believe in...Jesus Christ the Risen Lord.
As the season of Spring demonstrates many
natural signs of new life in trees and bushes that
flower and bloom around us after Winter has come
to an end, the liturgical season of Easter following
Lent gives us many grace filled opportunities for
our lives to do the same in the sacrament and
in the hearing and doing of God’s Word. I congratulate and welcome those who have come into the
Church during Lent and at our Easter vigil. I
extend an invitation for those who have been away
from the Church for various reasons, to come back
Divine Mercy Sunday, the Second Sunday of
Easter (April 12th), celebrates Jesus’ invitation for
all to return to him by way of his Divine Mercy.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, along with
praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet will take place in
the church from 3PM to 4PM on this day. The
Divine Mercy image of Jesus will be blessed during
this hour and will be venerated throughout the year
and in the years to come at St. Mary’s as Jesus
requested in his words to St. Faustina:
“I am offering people a vessel with which they are
to keep coming for graces to the fountain
of mercy. That vessel is this image with the
signature: “Jesus, I Trust in You.”
God bless you,
Fr. John Licari

Domingo de Pascua: La Resurrección del Señor
El primer domingo de Pascua debió haber sido bien difícil para los apóstoles
que habían dedicado tres años de su vida para seguir al hombre que creyeron era
el Mesías, sólo para verlo crucificado y enterrado. Todo parecía perdido. Obsesionados con los sucesos del Viernes Santo les era bien dificultoso al comienzo
entender el mensaje de la resurrección. Pero sus ojos y sus corazones se abrieron cuando Jesús mencionó sus nombres, comió con ellos y sopló sobre ellos el
don de la paz. Desde ese momento recibieron poder y fueron infundidos de valor y de un entusiasmo nuevo. Con el don del Espíritu Santo comenzaron a ser
potentes testigos del mensaje de esperanza y de la vida nueva. Al regocijarnos
en la gloria y el poder de la Resurrección llegamos a darnos cuenta de que la
victoria de Cristo sobre el pecado y la muerte también puede ser nuestra. Vivamos este día de Pascua con fe y convicción, y así llegaremos a participar por
siempre de la plenitud de la resurrección de Cristo.

La tradición de los “huevos de Pascua”
El origen de esta costumbre viene de los antiguos egipcios,
quienes acostumbraban regalarse en ocasiones especiales,
huevos decorados por ellos mismos. Los decoraban con pinturas
que sacaban de las plantas y el mejor regalo era el huevo que
estuviera mejor pintado. Ellos los ponían como adornos en sus
Cuando Jesús se fue al cielo después de resucitar, los primeros
cristianos fijaron una época del año, la Cuaresma, cuarenta días
antes de la fiesta de Pascua, en la que todos los cristianos debían
hacer sacrificios para limpiar su alma. Uno de estos sacrificios era
no comer huevo durante la Cuaresma. Entonces, el día de
Pascua, salían de sus casas con canastas de huevos para regalar
a los demás cristianos. Todos se ponían muy contentos, pues con
los huevos recordaban que estaban festejando la Pascua, la
Resurrección de Jesús.
Uno de estos primeros cristianos, se acordó un día de Pascua, de
lo que hacían los egipcios y se le ocurrió pintar los huevos que iba
a regalar. A los demás cristianos les encantó la idea y la imitaron.
Desde entonces, se regalan huevos de colores en Pascua para
recordar que Jesús resucitó.
Poco a poco, otros cristianos tuvieron nuevas ideas, como hacer
huevos de chocolate y de dulce para regalar en Pascua. Son esos
los que regalamos hoy en día Autor: Teresa Fernández | Fuente: Catholic.net
