Aunque estuvo dispuesto a seguir a Jesús hasta la muerte (Juan 11:16), no se lanzaría a ir al mundo ahora e intentar dar testimonio de Cristo resucitado cuando sólo cuenta con “relatos de tercera mano” de otros apóstoles.

Muchos, cuando luchamos con nuestra fe y o con lo que creemos, nos podemos identificar con Tomás. Pero aunque nuestra fe fuera bastante sólida, encontramos a personas que son un poco como Tomás, que no creerán si no pasan por una experiencia creíble de Cristo resucitado. Entonces, somos llamados a dar testimonio. Como Cristo, no podemos avergonzarnos de mostrar las heridas del Cuerpo de Cristo, la Iglesia.

Even though he was willing to follow Jesus to death (John 11:16), he’s not going to go out into the world now and attempt to give witness to the risen Christ when all he has at his disposal is hearsay evidence from the other apostles. No, he wants immediate evidence, a hands-on experience of Christ risen and present. The risen Christ ultimately provides Thomas with the experience and evidence he needs. Many of us, when we struggle with our faith or our belief, can identify with Thomas. But even when our faith is in relatively solid shape, we encounter people who are a bit like Thomas, who won’t believe unless they are given credible experience of the risen Christ. We, then, are called to be witnesses. Like Christ, we cannot be ashamed to show the woundedness of the Body of Christ, the Church. We must even allow others to probe and examine the wounds. But we must also greet them with “Peace” and know that, in the glorious everlasting life of Christ risen from the dead, our wounds are not our final destiny. Our final joy is life transformed for eternity.

    LAMADOS A SER TESTIGOS Toms probablemente sera el tipo de hombre que uno quisiera tener de su lado en un tribunal de justicia real. Aunque estuvo dispuesto a seguir a Jess hasta la muerte (Juan 11:16), no se lanzara a ir al mundo ahora e intentar dar testimonio de Cristo resucitado cuando slo cuenta con relatos de tercera mano de otros apstoles. No, l quiere evidencia inmediata, experiencia directa de Cristo resucitado y presente. Al final, Cristo resucitado le provee a Toms la experiencia y la prueba que l necesita. Muchos, cuando luchamos con nuestra fe y o con lo que creemos, nos podemos identificar con Toms. Pero aunque nuestra fe fuera bastante slida, encontramos a personas que son un poco como Toms, que no creern si no pasan por una experiencia creble de Cristo resucitado.

    Entonces, somos llamados a dar testimonio. Como Cristo, no podemos avergonzarnos de mostrar las heridas del Cuerpo de Cristo, la Iglesia. Hasta tenemos que permitir a otros que toquen y examinen las heridas. Pero tambin debemos saludarlas con la paz y saber que, en la gloriosa vida eterna de Cristo resucitado de entre los muertos, nuestras heridas no sern nuestro destino final. Nuestra alegra final es una vida transformada por toda la eternidad.

    N ews from the Padre/ No ticias de N uestro Sacerdote

    Attending Mass on Easter Sunday is certainly a different experience than participating in an ordinary Sunday liturgy. For those who are in the pews every Sunday, the question that pops into our mind is, Where did all of these people come from? As a pastor, I am also forced to ask myself the most basic question of all, What can our parish community do to encourage these inactive, fallen-away, former or ex-Catholics who have drifted away for some reason, to get them re-involved in our parish activities before next Christmas before they fall permanently into the category coined as CEO Catholics or Christmas and Easter Only Catholics. However we choose to label them, there are millions of Catholics who dont attend Mass on a regular basis. The Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA),

    located at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., offers the widest and best sample of Catholic Mass attendance. Twenty-three percent of all Catholics claim to attend Mass weekly; another 21% claim to attend at least monthly. This means that 56% of Catholics do not attend Mass with any regularity. Molly Worthen, a religious historian, notes that the United States has seen many ebbs and flows in religious participation; the current rates are similar to the time prior to the Civil War. Worthen writes in the New York Times, 77% still identify as Christians and 69% say they are very or moderately religious. If this is true, weve still got something to work with. With the gift of faith, the churchs diminishment can be viewed as an incredible and golden opportunity to ask yet another serious question. Simply put: What is the Church for? Historically, we would have answered that question in various ways: for decades in this country, the churchs purpose was to feed, teach and nurse, leave a legacy of churches, schools and hospitals built to nurture, educate and heal generations of poor immigrants. Bishop John Buckley of Ireland, while probably not in agreement with all, states: ...the central tenets of Catholicism were not established as rules of membership. These are all ideals that we must try to live up to. If you do not meet all these ideals, it does not mean that you cannot take your place at the table the Lord has prepared for you. The church is a refuge for the weak, not a home for the perfect, a loving home meant to be filled and overflowing with the imperfections that each of us brings to that same table. A home for all, on Easter and every day. I loved that our Church overflowed into the gathering area on Easter weekend. What a witness to the truth that the Easter Story has real meaning and continues to capture peoples imagination. If we can figure out what the pull was to get people to come to church this past week, then we can use that as a starting point for helping them look more deeply at their own experience. We can be much better in teaching, converting, and inviting others to an active and engaged participation in the life of the Church, involvement that can help make a real difference in a persons daily life. The account of the Resurrection does not just have meaning for a single moment, but rather calls for a commitment. Each of us can see ourselves making a commitment to be a discipleone who goes out into the world, as Pope Francis stated in his Easter homily. We could, of course, just hunker down and lament the loss of faith within our communityhiding out in the proverbial Upper Room. That is, after all, what some of Jesus disciples did. But, it is not our charism to hide. Our charism is to welcome. Hospitalitythat sense of genuine and loving welcomingmust continue to be a major touch point in the Stewardship of our Church today. These practices cannot become just another catch phrase. They must be the way we live our Catholic Christianity. Times have changed, and for better or worse, other institutions have taken on the tasks of education and health care. I believe that American Catholics face far less discrimination than our grandparents did, and have ultimately become more inclusive and welcoming. Those same changing times have also shown that this weekends liturgies wont likely be witness to another standing room only weekend. We need to understand that as Catholics, we are called to be committed disciples. Disciples who dont hide, but rather, go out into the world to preach the Good News. Easter Blessings...Alleluia! Alleluia!

    N ews from the Padre/ No ticias de N uestro Sacerdote En la misa del domingo de Pascua es sin duda una experiencia diferente de participar en una liturgia dominical. Para aquellos que estn en los bancos cada domingo, la cuestin que aparece en nuestra mente es, " De donde viene todas estas personas?" Como pastor, yo tambin estoy obligado a preguntarme la pregunta ms bsica de todas: " Qu puede hacer nuestra comunidad para alentar a estas personas que no son activas en nuestra parroquia que motivacin les podemos dar para que regresen y participen en nuestra iglesia frecuentemente? Este tipo de catlicos de llaman Catlicos de Navidad y Pascua, los que nada mas viene en los das festivos de la Iglesia. Toda broma y etiquetas aparte, hay millones de catlicos que no asisten a misa en una base regular. El Centro de Investigacin Aplicada en el apostolado (CARA), ubicado en la Universidad de Georgetown en Washington, D. C. , ofrece la mejor y ms amplia muestra de participacin en la Misa Catlica. Veinte y tres por ciento de todos los catlicos demanda para asistir a la Misa semanal; otro 21% demanda a asistir a por lo menos una vez al mes. Esto significa que el 56% de los catlicos no asistir a misa con regularidad. Molly Worthen, un historiador religioso, observa que en Estados Unidos se ha visto muchos flujos y reflujos de participacin religiosa; los ndices actuales no son similares a la vez antes de la Guerra Civil. Worthen escribe en el New York Times, "77% an identificar como cristianos y el 69% dicen que estn "muy" o "moderadamente" religiosa. Si esto es cierto, an tenemos algo con que trabajar. Con el don de la fe, la iglesia tiene la disminucin se puede ver como una increble oportunidad de oro para pedir otra grave cuestin. En resumen: " Cul es la Iglesia de?" histricamente, habramos contestado la pregunta de varias formas: desde hace dcadas en este pas, la misin de la iglesia es el de alimentar, educar y una enfermera, dejar un legado de iglesias, escuelas y hospitales construidos para alimentar, educar y sanar las generaciones de inmigrantes pobres. El Obispo John Buckley de Irlanda, mientras que probablemente no estn de acuerdo con todos, dice:"... los principios centrales del catolicismo no se establecieron como normas de composicin. Todos estos son ideales que debemos tratar de estar a la altura. Si usted no cumple con todos estos ideales, no significa que usted no puede tomar su lugar en la mesa del Seor ha preparado para usted. La iglesia es un refugio para los dbiles, no una casa para el perfecto." Un hogar carioso para ser llenados y rebosante de las imperfecciones que cada uno de nosotros aporta a la misma tabla. Una casa para todos, en la Semana Santa y todos los das. Me encant el hecho de que nuestra Iglesia ha desbordado en la zona de acumulacin en semana santa. Lo que un testimonio de la verdad de que la Pascua historia ha significado real y contina para capturar la imaginacin de la gente. Si podemos averiguar en qu consiste la tire era para que la gente acceda a venir a la iglesia la semana pasada, entonces podemos usar como punto de partida para ayudarles a encontrar ms profundamente en su propia experiencia. Podemos ser mucho mejor para la enseanza, la conversin, invitando a otros a hacer un argumento ms convincente para la participacin activa y comprometida en la vida de la Iglesia har una verdadera diferencia en la vida cotidiana de las personas. La cuenta de la resurreccin no slo tiene sentido en un solo momento, sino que pide un compromiso. Cada uno de nosotros podemos ver el compromiso de ser un discpulo de quien "sale al mundo", como el Papa Francisco declar en su homila Pascual. Podramos, por supuesto, slo agacharse y lamentamos la prdida de la fe dentro de nuestra comunidad a esconderse en el proverbial cenculo. Es decir, despus de todo, lo que algunos de los discpulos de Jess lo hizo. Pero, que no es nuestro carisma de hid. Nuestro carisma es bienvenida. Hospitalidad de ese sentido de la verdadera bienvenida y amorosa de debe seguir siendo un importante punto de contacto en la direccin de nuestra Iglesia de hoy. Estas prcticas no puede ser slo otra frase gancho. Deben ser la manera en la que vivimos nuestro Cristianismo Catlico. Han cambiado los tiempos, y para mejor o para peor, otras instituciones han adoptado en las tareas de la educacin y la atencin de la salud. Creo que los catlicos americanos cara mucho menos discriminacin que hicieron nuestros abuelos, y, al final, se han convertido en ms inclusiva y acogedor. Tenemos que comprender que los catlicos, estamos llamados a ser discpulos comprometidos. Discpulos que no esconden, sino "ir al mundo a predicar la Buena Nueva." Feliz Pascua... Aleluya! Aleluya!

    Please join us this spring for The Bible 30-Day Experience study based on the epic TV miniseries, The Bible. We will explore the power of the Old Testament, the compassion

    of Jesus life, the pain of His crucifixion, and the triumph of His resurrection. This bible study presentation uses video clips from the highly-acclaimed TV miniseries,

    and thought-provoking discussion. Your friends and neighbors are welcome to join us in this inspirational study of Gods love, sacrifice and hope!

    The accompanying study guide will be available for $15. No registration required.

    To the Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers of St. Francis of Assisi:

    My sincere gratitude to the many, many Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers who so willingly participated

    in the Passion Week and Easter Sunday services. May our Risen Christ bless you all.

    Sincerely, Pat

    SMALL CHURCH COMMUNITY UPDATE: Many Catholics have never openly shared their faith with anyone, or have little or no practice of speaking about their faith in personal terms. One of the fruits of being part of a Small Church Community group is that we are better enabled to share our faith with others, something we are clearly called to do.

    You are invited to come to our Small Church Community gathering on Wednesday, April 17th, from 7-8:45 p.m. at Sharon and Bruce's home. We reflect on the Sunday Scriptures, faith-share on what the passage says to us personally, take time to pray for one another and other intentions, then enjoy fellowship with coffee and cookies. All are welcome! For more info please call Sharon Hatch 775-832-2616.

    Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

    The Catholic Home Missions Appeals help support basic pastoral and formation programs for four out of every ten dioceses in the United States. The Diocese of Reno is one of the dioceses that has received grants from this fund. With Home Missions grants, we can continue supplying the help needed. The Home Missions Appeal helps ease struggles through grants to people in the Mission Dioceses who would not be able to afford services such as adult faith formation and education for leaders to attend to the unique needs of their faith communities. Please be generous to this years Appeal and help strengthen not only the Church at home, but throughout the country. You support truly makes a difference. Thank you!

    Sincerely yours in Christ, Most Reverend Randolph R. Calvo

    Issues of Peace and Justice From the Life, Peace and Justice Commission (April 7 bulletin)

    Peace be with you. Three times Jesus repeats this in todays gospel. This salutation seems to be more than just a friendly greeting of the Lord, as is indicated by this fuller statement, Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.

    The Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church states: Peace is a value and a universal duty. Peace is the fruit of justice. Peace is also the fruit of love. Peace is built up day after day in the pursuit of an order willed by God and can flourish only when all recognize that everyone is responsible for promoting it. To prevent conflicts and violence, it is absolutely necessary that peace begin to take root as a value rooted deep within the heart of every person. In this way it can spread to families and to the different associations within society until the whole of the political community is involved. In a climate permeated with harmony and respect for justice, an authentic culture of peace can grow and can even pervade the entire international community. Peace is, consequently, the fruit of that harmony structured into human society by its Divine Founder and which must be actualized by people as they aspire for ever greater justice. Such an ideal of peace cannot be obtained on earth unless the welfare of man is safeguarded and people freely and trustingly share with one another the riches of their minds and their talents. (Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, #494 & #495.)

    La Paz y Justicia "La paz sea con vosotros." Tres veces Jess repite esta frase en el evangelio de hoy. Este saludo parece ser ms que un amable saludo del Seor, como se indica en la presente declaracin ms completa, "La paz sea con vosotros. Como el Padre me envi, tambin yo os envo a vosotros." El Compendio de la Doctrina Social de la Iglesia afirma: "La paz es un valor y un deber universal." "La paz es fruto de la justicia." "La paz es tambin fruto del amor." "La paz se construye da a da en la bsqueda de un orden querido por Dios, y slo puede florecer cuando todos reconocemos que cada uno es responsable de defender la paz. Para evitar los conflictos y la violencia, es absolutamente necesario que la paz comience a tener races como un valor arraigado profundamente en el corazn de cada persona. De esta manera se puede extender a las familias y a las diferentes asociaciones dentro de la sociedad hasta que el conjunto de la comunidad se involucre polticamente. En un clima impregnado con la armona y el respeto de la justicia, una autntica cultura de la paz puede crecer y puede incluso dominar el conjunto de la comunidad internacional. Paz es, por lo tanto, el fruto de la "armona que estructurada en la sociedad humana por su divino Fundador y que debe ser actualizada por las personas que aspiran cada vez ms justas." Ese ideal de paz "no se puede obtener en la tierra a menos que el bienestar del hombre este protegido y las personas libremente compartan su confianza con los de mas y las riquezas de sus mentes y sus talentos. '" (Compendio de la Doctrina Social de la Iglesia por el Consejo Pontificio para la justicia y la paz, #494 y #495.)
